This raid is part of the Hardcore Heritage events. It was introduced to the live servers on June 7, 2017 and will run until July 4th, 2017 11PM PST.

Find a contemplative froglok in HH Old Sebilis, it is located near the bridge on the way to Trakanon. Located at -1754, -357, -175.

You say, 'Hail, a contemplative froglok'

a contemplative froglok says, 'I see another hero has come to, ribbit, gain "fame" by defeating the great dragon. I should warn you, however, that Trakanon has not been idle while you have been getting famous. He has grown far more powerful. I care not, ribbit, if you die. The golems will deal with your corpse, if Trakanon does not devour it.'

You say, 'fame'

a contemplative froglok says, 'Ribbit! If that's what you want. Just let me know when you are "ready" and I can send you to your doom.'

You say, 'ready'

a contemplative froglok says, 'It's your life, what's left of it.'




You will enter the instance at the bridge just outside of Trakanon's cavern. The zone has limited trash mobs that you can pre-clear in the reet froglok and myconid areas before speaking to Tolapumj.

You say, 'Hail, Tolapumj'

Tolapumj says, 'You are unwelcome here. Lord Trakanon will devour you if you do not [leave] immediately. You cannot hope to [fight] him.'

You say, 'fight'

Tolapumj says, 'Oh look, a talking lump of refuse. How novel!'

Tolapumj does not fight until triggered, and killing him starts the event. Trakanon, sebilite protector, and several sebilite juggernauts spawn in the cavern.

Trakanon uses the Ancestral Poison Breath spell (large range PB AE 107K nuke with 95K DoT, 25 poison counters) every 50 seconds, chooses a random victim to cast Ancestral Blinding Fear at (targeted AE blind, stun for 2 seconds, and 109K DoT, cast every 120 seconds), and Ancestral Envenomed Tail Strike (a viral 105K DoT that also saps 2500 mana and 1200 endurance). Trakanon also casts Ancestral Deadly Lifetap (125k DD) on whoever has aggro. Trakanon will also periodically banish the main tank to the myconid area, thus the reason for pre-clearing.

When Trakanon's health reaches 70%, Reanimated Tolapumj spawns where the rock of the southern wall juts into the cavern. He uses the Unrelenting Control spell to charm multiple random targets at once.

When Trakanon's health reaches 40%, his health locks while Reanimated Musician and Musician's Assistant spawn in the furthest east corner of the cavern. While the Reanimated Musician is alive, he generates a large range aura (using Oppression of Thule and Mire of Crimson Mists II) that caps HPs, mana, and endurance while also snaring you. The Musician alternates between invulnerability and taking damage with no emotes to track this. While fighting the Musician, he will summon multiple ghosts to chase several random targets, with a personal warning emote.

A Sebilisian ghost moves toward you, reaching out its ethereal arms. If the ghost reaches you it casts Unliving Touch on you (Invulnerability).

Swirl of Bones, Moldknight, and Boneknight spawn around the cavern while you fight with the Musician. They roam around for a short time, but will become active. These 3 mobs have a short range aura. Entering the aura hits you with Blinding Bonecloud (a 145K nuke and short duration blind), while remaining in the aura causes Burning Bonedust (a 67K DoT that also saps 1700 mana) to refresh.

Killing any of the 3 aura mobs causes Trakanon and the Musician's health to unlock. Killing the Musician stops the 3 aura mobs from spawning and permanently unlocks Trakanon's health.

Defeat Trakanon to complete the event.

Ancestral Envenomed Tail Strike

Ancestral Envenomed Tail Strike is likely every minute. There are clear instances of it landing a minute apart, and a few others just being a few seconds beyond just 1 minute apart which is the viral part meaning it landed on someone else then spread to you a few seconds after.

Ah, was wondering where that would come in. I assume it is this if we want the exact name:

[50699] Unliving Touch
Target: Single
Range: 1000'
Resist: Unresistable
Focusable: No
Reflectable: No
Casting: 0s
Duration: 18s (3 ticks), Dispelable: No
12: Invulnerability
Text: You are disconnected from this world.

It's in the same batch of spells for the Trak raid.

Ancestral Poison Breath has 25 poison counters.
Trak also casts Ancestral Deadly Lifetap on the MT (Single target, MT: 125K nuke.)
Looks like Ancestral Blinding Fear is every 120 seconds.
And I only see aura dmg from the Swirl of Bones.

Due to our spell database not having any SPA over 12 we aren't picking up the extra spell info. We just recently got our lucy/item collector dev access to the allakhazam site as well so hopefully he can get the SPA issues fixed.

Added the lifetap.

The fear shows to have a recast of 30 seconds on the spell data. Trakanon during the raid only casts it every 120 seconds?

And re: Ancestral Deadly Lifetap. It also has an emote when it hits you,"You feel a tugging at your soul.". That being said, our tanks have told me that they have not seen that when they search their logs.

But you can find:
[Sun Jun 11 22:32:15 2017] You resist the Ancestral Deadly Lifetap spell!

And I have 3 separate occurrences of such, all from times when I was unintentionally tanking Trak.

I personally never found the recast information in spell parsers to have any real relation to how often an NPC actually used an ability or spell and just ignore it entirely. In this event unfortunately, we can't directly see what spells Trak is using. There is is no nice and tidy cast message. But there are various other ways.

For Ancestral Blinding Fear for example, you get an emote of "You freeze in terror." when it lands on you. Nothing else in the event gives a similar emote.

[..]
[Wed Jun 07 20:17:19 2017] Trakanon begins to cast a spell.
[Wed Jun 07 20:17:19 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Wed Jun 07 20:17:21 2017] You have taken 68748 damage from Ancestral Blinding Fear by Trakanon
[Wed Jun 07 20:17:27 2017] You have taken 68748 damage from Ancestral Blinding Fear
[..]

This is complicated though by the fact that it is a targeted AoE spell. For this raid though our guild is largely grouped up for AoE healing, so every time it gets cast, chances are I'm going to get hit by it.

Searching through my log I see:

[Wed Jun 07 20:13:19 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Wed Jun 07 20:15:20 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Wed Jun 07 20:17:19 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Wed Jun 07 20:19:19 2017] You freeze in terror.

[Wed Jun 07 21:18:36 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Wed Jun 07 21:20:37 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Wed Jun 07 21:22:36 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Wed Jun 07 21:24:36 2017] You freeze in terror.
(there is a 4 min gap here, but note that it is still multiple of 2 minutes, and likely I just missed one cast because it didn't hit me while I was out kiting a ghost or something)
[Wed Jun 07 21:28:36 2017] You freeze in terror.

[Sun Jun 11 21:06:58 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 21:08:59 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 21:10:59 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 21:12:59 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 21:14:59 2017] You freeze in terror.

[Sun Jun 11 22:25:05 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:27:05 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:29:05 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:31:05 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:33:05 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:35:05 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:37:10 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:39:05 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:41:05 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:43:10 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:45:10 2017] You freeze in terror.
[Sun Jun 11 22:47:05 2017] You freeze in terror.

Note a very consistent 2 minute pattern of the emotes. Additionally one could also watch their buff window for the debuff and just time it out manually.

This writeup is currently incomplete. Getting timing of abilities is difficult since Trakanon's level is too high to see spell casts, and there are very few emotes for any mechanics in play. It is currently unknown what happens if any of the ghosts catches their target, or what the purpose of the Musician's Assistant is (unresponsive to hails, cannot be attacked, and spells cannot be cast on it). The incomplete version of this quest is being put up due to the limited time that this content is available. Any additional details volunteered to help flesh out the writeup would be appreciated.

It should be obvious, that it is a raid zone, requiring at least 6 players, and not allowing mercs. Still the event is new so, it is probable that more info is coming.

Saying ready to 'a contemplative froglok' with only 3 players in group gives the following message:

You do not meet the player count requirement. You have 3 players. You must have at least 6 and no more than 54.


Once I added mercs for a full group, and hailed, this was the message I saw::

The way is blocked to you. Perhaps you would be able to enter if there was a reason to come here.

Trakanon was up in the static zone, so that may have something to do with it, or there could be other steps or flags needed.

It does that to you if you fail to get the instance right off. Just go through the dialogue again and it should give you the DZ.
