You say, 'Hail, Witherweaver'

Witherweaver is unresponsive at first, his body marked with fresh wounds and burns. The injured wizard groans as he attempts to speak, 'You... you stopped to aid me.' Witherweaver laughs, clutching his chest in agony. 'You are kind, yet foolish. There is no help for me. My injuries are fatal, caused by a [dragon] that may still linger nearby.

You say, 'What dragon?'

Witherweaver says 'She calls herself Velishan. At first glance, she appears no different than the other terrorwings that inhabit this cavern, but looks can be deceiving. She has a clever way of adapting to her environment, cloaking herself in scales that offer protection from whatever type of magic is being used against her. She preys on unlikely adventurers, slaughtering them and taking whatever worldly treasure they held to add to her collection.' Witherweaver closes his eyes as his breathing slows, 'I am beyond help, but you still have the power to [avenge] my death.''

You say, 'We'll avenge you...'

Witherweaver smiles slightly, as if reading your mind, 'Why would you want to avenge the death of a stranger? If the thrill of slaying a dragon isn't enough, know that whatever treasures Velishan has been hoarding will be yours. That should be motivation enough.' Witherweaver takes in slow breath before offering one last bit of advice, 'Be prepared to cast various types of magic, or you may end up suffering the same fate as me. If you're [willing] to seek revenge, I will tell you where Velishan can be found.'

You say, 'I'm willing!'

Witherweaver uses his final breath to utter Velishan's location.

Velishan, the Deceitful

Velishan is a standard aggro mob (normal aggro range; there is no event trigger). She hits for a max ~40,000; flurries; and single-target rampages. Once she is aggro'd, her aggro range significantly increases, to about the size of the cave she's in, so if she is left idle and anyone else is in the event area, she'll start summoning them to her location.

She is leashed to about 250' range around her spawn area. If you pull her outside this range, she warps back to her spawn point and strips herself of debuffs:

Velisan has been lured too far away from the fear crystal and removes all detrimental spells before returning home.

Velishan has five forms: Magic; Disease; Ice; Fire; and Stone.

In her Magic form (she is black in color), she is immune to magic-based damage, susceptible to all other forms of damage, and especially vulnerable to disease-based damage.

In her Disease form (she is light green in color), she is immune to disease-based damage, susceptible to all other forms of damage, and especially vulnerable to magic-based damage.

In her Ice form (she is turquoise in color), she is immune to ice-based damage, susceptible to all other forms of damage, and especially vulnerable to fire-based damage.

In her Fire form (she is red in color), she is immune to fire-based damage, susceptible to all other forms of damage, and especially vulnerable to ice-based damage.

In her Stone form (she is grey/brown in color), she is immune to all melee damage, but vulnerable to all spells.

When you use a spell damage type that she's currently immune to, you'll see an emote:

This type of spell cannot land while Velishan is shielded by Scales of _____.

If you use too much of an "immune" damage type, Velishan significantly powers up (hits for a max ~120,000 or more). For example, if she's currently in her Ice form and you use too much cold/ice-based DPS, she will power up:

Stripped of her magical scales, Velishan becomes enraged!

If this happens, you can return her damage output to normal by changing her form.

If/When you want Velishan to change into a certain form, concentrate your DPS on that form's immunity while doing little or no other types of DPS. For example, if she's currently in her Magic form and you want her to turn to Stone, then stop all spells and focus only on melee DPS (she will eventually turn).

Velishan also has various AEs based on what form she is currently in. Also of note, the more damaging and/or frequently these abilities are used (more details in the sections below).

I don't know what the full requirements are outside of the 4 T1 Raids - but I have none of the BG partisans done and can request this.

Of the ones I do have done are:

From Merc:

Faiz's Fight
Oaxy - the Amulet
Kesar - the Dragon Whisperer

Both Hero missions.

I wouldn't be surprised since I don't have all the merc, to learn that this one either requires just the raids, or, just the raids + hero missions to request (and since no other raid requires more than the 1st hero mission, I doubt it requires them both).
