You say, 'Hail, Captain Dunstan Coldheart'
Captain Dunstan Coldheart does his best to hide the concern in his voice when speaking, 'Niva told me of your actions within the caverns. You can't blame yourself for Danela's escape. At least now we know where she's been holing up, and with the inner caverns cleared, we'll have firm fighting grounds for when we [lure] Danela from hiding. Or are you here for [other reasons]?'
You say, 'How do we lure her?'
Captain Dunstan Coldheart says 'The central pit may not look large, but it is a sizable space filled with many tunnels that wind their way to the top of the caverns. Danela could be hiding anywhere. Niva Coldmist is working on a way to force Danela to come out and face us. She's asked specifically for your help in orchestrating the traitor's defeat. It will likely take a [raid] force to take the traitor down, but I will not turn away your [group] if you're willing to aid the coldain.'
You say, 'My group will handle her'
Captain Dunstan Coldheart says 'Let me know when you are [prepared] to leave and I'll lead you back to the caverns of fear where Niva can inform you of our plans.'
You have been assigned the task 'Danela's Stand'.
Captain Dunstan has asked you to work with the Coldain forces to defeat Danela and recover the fear shard. Niva Coldmist should be able to provide further instruction.
You say, 'I am prepared!'
Captain Dunstan Coldheart says 'Good luck. The fate of Froststone rests in your hands.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Caverns of Fear.
Speak to Niva Coldmist 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)
Make your way to the pit 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)
Task Window Says: Niva caused an explosion that should force Danela from hiding. Head to the central pit where she is expected to be.
Engage Danela and witness her transformation 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)
Task Window Says: Obtain visual confirmation that Danela has submitted herself to the power of fear.
NOTE: The task locks once Danela reaches this transformation at 70% health.
Drop a boulder on Danela while she's in terror form 0/2 (Crystal Caverns)
Defeat Ry`Gorr orcs 0/8 (Crystal Caverns)
Task Window Says: Might and magic won't be good enough to tear Danela from her terror form. Find a way to drop boulders from the ceiling onto her head, breaking the traitor's concentration. The Ry`Gorr miners might have explosives good for blasting boulders.
Defeat Danela 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)
Task Window Says: Defeat Danela while she is too weak to channel her terror form!
Claim your reward from Danela's Lockbox 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)
Task Window Says: Danela's Lockbox contains your reward.
Speak with Niva Coldmist to spawn Danela Icewind in the pit.
You say, 'Hail, Niva Coldmist'
Niva Coldmist nods in silent greeting, 'You've arrived just in time. We're nearly finished with our [preparations].'
You say, 'What preparations?'
Niva Coldmist says 'The scouts have been collecting supplies to help build more explosives. We should have enough blasting power to cause the cavern walls to come crumbling down. Danela will either become trapped in the tunnels, or forced out into the open to face us. Either way, the traitor will die. When you're [ready] I'll light the fuse.'
You say, 'Ready!'
Niva Coldmist covers her ears while shouting, 'Brace yourselves! This is going to be one powerful blast!'
Make your way to the pit and engage Danela Icewind. She hits for a max (???). She casts "Instilled Fear" on random targets (1-tick blind) and casts "Terrorize" every 35 seconds.
Instilled Fear: Single Target, Magic (-940)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 33000
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 15000 per tick
3: Blindness (1)
Terrorize: Targeted AE 15', Magic (-940)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 38000
2: 20% Chance to trigger: Crystalized
She may also cast "Falling Rock" upon her transformation:
Falling Rock: PB AE 1000', Unresistable (-950)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 34000
DPS Danela to 70%, at which point she turns into a tentacle terror and goes inactive. This updates the first step here and opens up the next two steps which you will complete as you progress the event.
The ceiling begins to crumble the heavy footsteps of orcs can be heard within the tunnels.
When Danela goes inactive at 70%, 3-4 Ry`Gorr miners spawn in the area above the pit. They are non-aggro, but spawn explosive barrels on random players (these tick down a "fuse" emote which you can move out of range from):
A Ry`Gorr miner throws a barrel of dynamite at _____.
Explosion: PB AE 15', Unresistable (-940)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 38000
Also when Danela goes inactive, several objects called "a boulder" spawn on the ceiling high above the pit. When you kill a Ry`Gorr miner, it spawns a ground spawn in place of its corpse. Pick up the ground spawn (an explosive), target one of the boulders, and right-click the explosive (you'll need a few clicks per boulder) to drop them on Danela. This updates the "Drop a boulder..." step.
Note: For a visual as to how what the boulders look like on the ceiling, see this image (this is the raid version, so there may be fewer boulders spawned, but this is what they look like -- they are the spherical objects).
After she's been hit with a few boulders, Danela goes aggro. Take her to 30% at which point she goes inactive again. You'll then need to kill 3-4 more miners and complete the boulder process again. After you've finished it a second time, she goes aggro again, and you can kill her.
Danela Icewind has been slain by _____!
Danela Icewind's corpse hits the cold cavern floor with ground-shaking force.
Possible Chest Loot (1 Item + 1 Dreadmote per task)
