|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This raid expedition begins with "a stoic imp" in the Level 100 revamp of Nagafen's Lair (located in the back of Lord Nagafen's lair, behind the fire giants area). This expedition is only available while the revamped version of the zone is active as part of Hardcore Heritage events.
There are no pre-requisites for requesting the raid (other than requiring at least six people).
You say, 'Hail, a stoic imp'
a stoic imp says 'I see another of your ilk comes to seek out your [fame] and riches from defeating my master. I should warn you, however, the great and powerful Lord Nagafen is not who he was in times gone by. No, he is MUCH more powerful. Though it makes no difference to me if you die, I do not wish to waste my time cleaning up the remnants of your flesh, the battered scraps of your armor, or wash away the drying pools of your blood.'
You say, 'Yes, I seek fame...'
a stoic imp says 'Very well then, it seems your kind are still not yet blessed by the weight of logic or reason. Annoy me further when you are [ready] to meet your gruesome, dismembered, charred, and bloody fate.'
You say, 'Ready!'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Nagafen's Lair.
- Engage Lord Nagafen in his lair (note: has a large aggro range and summons from 100% health).
- At 80%, spawns Aspect of Flame.
--- Aspect of Flame has a 500-point damage shield.
--- Drops "Talisman of Fire" and spawns a fire aura in the northeastern part of the lair.
- At 60%, spawns Aspect of Air.
--- Aspect of Air has a 40' range AE push + trigger for a knockback + nuke for 54,000.
--- Drops "Talisman of Air" and spawns an air aura in the northwestern part of the lair.
- At 40%, spawns Aspect of Earth.
--- Aspect of Earth has a 35' range AE feign death effect; slow spells have a reverse effect.
--- Drops "Talisman of Earth" and spawns an earth aura in the southwestern part of the lair.
- At 20%, spawns Aspect of Water.
--- Aspect of Water casts an AE pushback + 2-tick DOT (19,000/tick).
--- Drops "Talisman of Water" and spawns a water aura in the southeastern part of the lair.
- At 5%, spawns all four Aspects again and goes immune to all forms of damage.
--- To break Nagafen's immunity, the four players who looted the Aspects' Talismans must stand in their associated auras and right-click the talismans (clicks must be done within seconds of each other).
- Killing Lord Nagafen wins the event, issues a lockout, and spawns a loot chest; however, the Aspects do not despawn.
In Detail: Lord Nagafen
Lord Nagafen hits for a max ~35,000 and rarely single-target rampages (does not flurry or AE rampage) and has 245 million hp.
Lord Nagafen will pick a random target and inflict them with "Empowered Flames I". Every 20 seconds, this debuff grows in strength, up to "Empowered Flames IV":
Empowered Flames I: Single Target, Fire (0)
1: Increase Damage Shield by 250 (5 ticks)
Empowered Flames II: Single Target, Fire (0)
1: Increase Damage Shield by 500 (5 ticks)
Empowered Flames III: Single Target, Fire (0)
1: Increase Damage Shield by 750 (5 ticks)
Empowered Flames IV: Single Target, Fire (0)
1: Increase Damage Shield by 1000 (5 ticks)
After "Empowered Flames IV" wears off, it becomes "Uncontrolled Flames":
Uncontrolled Flames: Single Target, Fire (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 35000 per tick (5 ticks)
After "Uncontrolled Flames" wears off, the target is inflicted with "Dragonfire Burst":
Dragonfire Burst: Single Target, Fire (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 3000000
You may be able to avoid the death touch effect by standing outside 200' range of Lord Nagafen at the time "Uncontrolled Flames" wears off. (This is not confirmed to work, but the range-to-target of "Dragonfire Burst" is 200' range, and Nagafen is the one who casts it.)
If the above spell cycle is broken at any time (or after a player is death touched), Nagafen will pick another target and go through the same process again.
In addition to the above effects, he casts "Wing Buffet" at random intervals (45-75 seconds). Note that this reportedly can hit for up to 82,500:
Wing Buffet: PB AE 100', (0)
1: Slow Push (300)
2: Decrease HP when cast by 34750 to 58200 (random)
He also has an emote-based AE:
Lord Nagafen shouts, 'All will be consumed by flames!'
When he does the above emote, he warps to the center of his lair, becomes rooted in place, and stops summoning. 12 seconds after the emote, he AEs "Pyrestorm", becomes unrooted, and begins summoning again:
Pyrestorm: PB AE 100', Fire (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 125000
Aspect Adds, Talismans, & Auras
At 80%, Lord Nagafen spawns a mini named: "Aspect of Flame". This mob hits for a max ~7,000 and is immune to all forms of crowd control. It buffs itself with "Fireskin":
Lord Nagafen calls forth a burning Aspect of Flame!
Fireskin: Self 10', Unresistable (0)
1: Increase Damage Shield by 500
It drops a "Talisman of Fire" for later use.
At 60%, Lord Nagafen spawns a mini named: "Aspect of Air". This mob hits for a max ~7,000 and is immune to all forms of crowd control. It casts "Whirlwind", a lead-up to "Vortex Blast":
Lord Nagafen conjures a whispering Aspect of Air!
Whirlwind: PB AE 40', Magic (0)
1: Slow Push (-150)
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 18650 per tick (1 tick)
3: Trigger Effect: Vortex Blast on Fade
Vortex Blast: Single Target, Magic (0)
1: Knockback (15) and Toss Up (5)
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 54000
It drops a "Talisman of Air" for later use.
At 40%, Lord Nagafen spawns a mini named: "Aspect of Earth". This mob is immune to all forms of crowd control; hastes itself if slowed; and casts "":
Lord Nagafen digs up a massive Aspect of Earth!
Rockfall: PB AE 35', Magic (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 36750
2: Feign Death, 65% Success Rate
It drops a "Talisman of Earth" for later use.
At 20%, Lord Nagafen spawns a mini named: "Aspect of Water". This mob hits for a max ~7,000 and is immune to all forms of crowd control. It casts "Sea Swell":
Lord Nagafen summons a shimmering Aspect of Water!
Sea Swell: PB AE 40', Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 19200 per tick
2: Slow Push (150)
It drops a "Talisman of Water" for later use.
At 5%, Lord Nagafen emotes the following...
In a last, desperate act, Lord Nagafen summons all four elemental aspects to his side.
...And spawns the four Aspects again (all with the same abilities and strength).
At this time, Nagafen also becomes immune to all forms of damage. In order to remove this immunity, those players who looted the talismans should stand in the corresponding auras around the room:
- Fire Aura: northeastern corner of the lair
- Air Aura: northwestern corner of the lair
- Earth Aura: southwestern corner of the lair.
- Water Aura: southeastern part of the lair.
While all four clickers are standing inside their auras, all four talismans should be clicked within a few seconds of each other. If done successfully, you'll see this:
The earth stone begins to vibrate.
The fire stone begins to glow.
The earth stone begins to vibrate.
The air stone begins to hum.
The four elemental powers converge upon Lord Nagafen, stripping him of his protective shield.
...And you can now kill Lord Nagafen.
Aspects do NOT despawn upon his death, so you'll need to kill them too. (They don't technically need to be killed in order to win the event, however, as the loot chest spawns upon Nagafen's death.)
NOTE: If you take too long to kill Nagafen, he'll spawn another set of four elementals:
Sensing weakness, Lord Nagafen again summons the four elemental aspects to try and finish you off!
Loot includes 4-6 random items from this drop table (duplicate drops possible):
Blight, Hammer of the Scourge
Gauntlets of Fiery Might
Gold Plated Koshigatana
Mighty Cloak of Flames
Prayers of Life
Red Dragon Scales
Selo`s Drums of the March
