Call of the Forsaken Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor



This raid expedition begins with Royal Scout Yekrit (click for map image) in the Bixie Warfront, located somewhere.

Pre-Requisites for Requesting:
- Level 95
- Completed "The Bixies of War"
- Completed "The Doomscale Horde" (raid event)
- Completed "Saving Jacyll" (raid event)

Pre-Requisites for Participating:
- Completed "The Doomscale Horde" (raid event)
- Completed "Saving Jacyll" (raid event)

Say "army" to request the raid and "ready" to zone in.

You say, 'Hail, Royal Scout Yekrit'

Royal Scout Yekrit says 'Ah, _____, it with heavy heart that I must report suspicious activity still lingering around the outskirts of [Stone Hive]. Though you have done much to calm the march of war it seems the last of Pelzia's generals still aims to march her forces through our gates.'

You say, 'Stone Hive?'

Royal Scout Yekrit says 'Though you were instrumental in silencing the drumbeat of war that drove their forces into our home, we are in need again of your [army] to drive them back.'

You say, 'Our army is here'

Royal Scout Yekrit says 'It may never be within our means to repay you for all you have done for us, _____. Thank you.'

You say, 'Ready!'

Royal Scout Yekrit says 'Right this way, _____.'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Bixie Warfront.



Triggering the Event

You say, 'Hail, Erlika Zzatris'

Erlika Zzatris scoffs, 'So you're the best army that prissy pollen-brained princess could muster to battle against Pelzia's elite forces?'

You feel compelled to tell her that [Pelzia is dead].

You say, 'Pelzia is dead'

Erlika Zzatris sighs, 'Well that would certainly explain her absence at court. No matter, her orders stand posthumously. Destroy all that stands between Stone Hive and the Turnback. The choice is yours, _____, stand down or [die].'

You say, 'Prepare to die!'

Erlika Zzatris snaps her fingers, 'Blessed creations of Stone Hive, your master beckons you to awake and rid the grounds of these pests!' With that she vanishes.

At this time, the 3x "Bzzazzl" around the area activate and auto-aggro.



Event Progression

- The event begins with 3x "Bzzazzl".
--- Each "Bzzazzl" represents one chain of mobs (consisting entirely of wasps).

- A mob chain looks like this:
--- Kill 1x "Bzzazzl" to spawn 1x "Zzazzi" + 2x "Bzzazzi".
------ Kill 1x "Zzazzi" to spawn 1x "Bzzazzi".
--- Kill 3x "Bzzazzi" to spawn 1x "Zzaizzir".
--- Kill 1x "Zzaizzir" to spawn 3x "Bzzazzr".
--- Kill 1x "Bzzazzr" to spawn 2x "Zzatazz" (repeat twice more)
--- Kill 6x "Zzatazz" within 30 seconds of each other to spawn 1x "Zzabi".
--- Kill 1x "Zzabi" to complete the mob chain.

- Once 3x "Zzabi" have been killed, "Bazzt Zzrazz" spawns.

- Kill "Bazzt Zzrazz" to complete the event.

- Note: Throughout the event, you'll have adds that need to be mezzed and/or charmed.



Event Mechanics

- All mobs are aggro-linked.

- All mobs summon from 100% health (there is a 30-second delay before they gain this ability, however).

- All mobs are rogues and backstab for much higher than their regular damage hits.

- In the event are yellow-colored wasps (names that start with "B") and red-colored wasps (names that start with "Z").

- With the exception of "Zzatazz", all wasps cast a rear AE every 15-25 seconds (~27,000 dmg unmitigated).

- All wasps proc a damage nuke on their target (~27,000 dmg unmitigated).
--- This same spell also adds a 30-second debuff called "_____ Apitoxin" on their target (where the blank is "Red" or "Yellow" -- whichever color the proccing mob is).
--- If, while inflicted with "_____ Apitoxin", a player is stung by an opposite-colored mob two times before the debuff has worn off, the player is death-touched.
--- Due to this mechanic, it is very important for tanks to be careful about their target selection.

--- All six of these mobs must be killed within 30 seconds of each other.
--- If, after a death, 30 seconds passes and another "Zzatazz" is still alive, the dead "Zzatazz" respawns at full health.

"Zzabi"

- Immune to stun; mez; root.
- Procs its sting on target every 12-25 seconds.
- Uses its rear AE every 15-30 seconds.

"Bazzt Zzrazz"

- Final mob (details in next section).



Bazzt Zzrazz

"Bazzt Zzrazz" hits for a max ~60,000 and single-target rampages (does not AE rampage or flurry).

It has one main ability to contend with: Every 30 seconds and every 10% health, two emotes are seen (where the blanks are the names of random player targets):

A yellow cloud forms above _____'s head.
A red cloud forms above _____'s head.

12 seconds later, the targeted players have an AE cast around them:

Rain of Yellow Stings: Targeted AE 45', Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 97692
2: Add effect: Volatile Yellow Apitoxin

Rain of Vermilion Stings: Targeted AE 45', Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 97692
2: Add effect: Volatile Red Apitoxin

The "Apitoxin" effects are 2-minute debuffs that cast a death touch on the inflicted target if they are hit with the opposite colored "Rain" spell while the debuff is on them.

To deal with the mechanics of these effects, dedicate a location where targeted players can run to when they get the "yellow" emote and a separate location for players targeted by the "red" emote.

Note that Bazzt Zzrazz's target will never get an emote; the same target will never get conflicting emotes; and a player with a debuff on them should never get the opposing emote (which would lead to an unavoidable death touch).

Note also that if an emoted player somehow dies before Bazzt Zzrazz casts the AE on the player, Bazzt Zzrazz will AE the spell and debuff around itself instead.



Event Adds

The only adds in this event are bixies called "a Stone Hive entomologist".

30 seconds after the event is triggered, 2x "a Stone Hive entomologist" spawn. 45 seconds later, another two spawn. 40 seconds after that, another two spawn. A maximum of 6x "a Stone Hive entomologist" can be up at any given time.

These adds are attackable, but don't fight back; and are mezzable and charmable. Upon spawning, they pick a random event mob and path to that mob (the name of the mob target appears under the add's name). Upon reaching the mob, they cast an AE around themselves and a buff on their targeted mob, and then despawn:

a Stone Hive entomologist imparts its power into _____ in a fiery shower of magic.

Entomologist's Explosion: PB AE 40', Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 97692

Entomologist's Focusing: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Increase Chance to Resist Spell by 85%
10: Spell-Damage Shield (-10000)
11: Increase Damage Shield by 1000

As "a Stone Hive entomologist" is mezzable and charmable, crowd control is recommended for dealing with these.

Note that while charmed, they proc "Entomologist's Sting" on their target, so they do have some decent DPS:

Entomologist's Sting: Single Target, Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 70000

Note also that while "a Stone Hive entomologist is mezzed, it loses 12% health per tick, eventually dying.

25-35 seconds after despawning (or being killed), another "a Stone Hive entomologist" spawns.



Event Completion

Kill "Bazzt Zzrazz" to complete the event:

Bazzt Zzrazz has been slain by _____!
Bazzt Zzrazz's corpse stops buzzing and falls lifelessly to the ground.

Erlika Zzatris' voice echoes over the hill that separates you from the Stone Hive, 'Curses! Back to the lab to construct stronger guardians!'

A large container of spoils comes into existence near Erlika's resting spot.
