This is a raid event in the expedition into Arx Mentis.



Summary

- This event takes place in the cryo chamber (small floor below the port-up level).

- Trigger the event by speaking with Principal Vicarum Nomia.

- Firiona Vie and friends will help out in this event.
--- If Firiona Vie dies, the event resets.

Phase One:

- Upon trigger, all mobs (incuding Principal Vicarum Nomia) in the room aggro.

- Three types of undead adds:
--- Skeletons (snareable; stunnable; no special abilities).
--- Zombies (cast "Coldest Touch", a 40' range PBAE 50% melee/spell slow + DOT for 31,000/tick for 5 ticks).
------ For each player hit with "Coldest Touch", the zombie gains 10% health.
--- Specters (cast "Shock of Death", emote-warned targeted 25' range AE with knockback + 74,000 dmg).
- All undead adds each need to be killed twice (they reanimate 10-25 seconds after their first death).

- Principal Vicarum Nomia:
--- Remains health-locked at 95% until all undead adds are (permanently) killed.

Phase Two:

- Begins once all undead adds are dead (and stay dead).

- Four totems spawn around the room.
--- While these are up, the effect "Death Overcomes" is in place (prevents casting of resurrection spells).
--- Totems can be despawned by healing 100,000hp of their health.
--- For every 10% damage Principal Vicarum Nomia takes, the Totems reappear.

- Principal Vicarum Nomia:
--- Casts same spells as in Phase One.
--- Has an aura around her called "Dreadfrost" (hits with 2-tick 60% melee/spell slow + DOT for 10,000/tick).
--- Casts "Paralyzing Touch" (3-tick mez; hits three random targets at a time)
--- Casts "Icesplosion" (30' range PBAE for 55,000 dmg + knockback)

- This phase ends upon Principal Vicarum Nomia's death.

Phase Three:

- Principal Vicarum Nomia is now undead...
--- Casts "Death's Curse" (can only hit Clerics and Paladins; 1-tick spell/melee silence + 34,000 dmg)
--- Casts "Frozen Bones" (single-target 6-second stun + 34,000 dmg)
--- Has an aura around her called "Dread Hoarfrost" (2-tick 60% melee/spell slow + DOT for 10,000/tick + reduction of incoming healing by 5,000).

- Four totems spawn around the room.
--- While these are up, the effect "Death Overcomes" is in place (prevents casting of resurrection spells).
--- Totems can be killed via normal DPS.
--- For every 10% damage the undead Principal Vicarum Nomia takes, the Totems reappear.
--- While totems are up, they place the buff "Grasp of Undeath" on players (reduction in all stats by 300)
------ Each time a player dies while the totems are up or while this debuff is on them, an undead mob spawns.
--------- Non-Cleric/Non-Paladin player deaths spawn a zombie from Phase One.
--------- Cleric and Paladin player deaths spawn a specter from Phase One.

- Kill the undead Principal Vicarum Nomia and any adds to complete the event.

- Reset: If Firiona Vie dies, the event resets. If Principal Vicarum Nomia is left idle for 30 seconds, the event resets.
