ok solo'd with a 93 rogue and cleric merc. the shadows do not aggro unless you aggro on them. So it's con until you find the raid tagged one, attack it, wait for the switch. Repeat until the riginal shows back up, kill her, loot and proceed to the next mob.

Is there a way to quickly get on the "real" shadow to where you can dps it down and rinse and repeast. I tried this today for about 40 minutes, and could never get Pyrique Redwing to respawn. I assume it is due to not doing enough dmg to the real shadow. I am trying to get my lil mage the belt. Thanks

easy enough to distinguish her "real" shadow, its the only one that cons as a raid mob. ie "this creature would take an army to defeat"

Not anymore since August 21, 2019 patch:
Pyrique Redwing - It's no longer possible to identify the real from the fake Pyrique's Shadow by considering them.

Duo'ed this with a 85 dru and wiz today, took a long time and a lot of waves of re poping mobs, it looked as tho it was bugged but eventualy after like 20 times the name spwaned droped legs and 2 greater runes. Cold nukes work best with cold debuffs.

Can you just spread out your dps among the 6 shadows and beat away until the real one pops? The switching between "real" Pyriques seemed to happen too fast for us, and was slightly confusing, eventually wiping us with about 24 non-EPed people.

Fun fight, respawn on her is really short also(was up within a half hour after kill) Drops 1 item + 2 greater runes(69 spells)

Killed twice, drops were(one loot per time):

No clue what the ember is used for.

All spawn times on mobs seem to be random / in loop with all the other mobs in the zone. So a set spawn time is impossible.

An example: Last night we killed Cipheron, 15 minutes later he was up again. So we killed him again, and he didnt spawn for the rest of the time we were there.

That was due to him being permakilled because he was being farmed in ways that weren't intended(supposed to only be able to do the fight once per enchanter that needs the epic piece) which then spawns a chest.

This is quite the interesting encounter. We defeated her last night on the 3rd of 4th attempt after we figured out the puzzle.


The "real" version, which in essence is a fake, is transfering your damage to an invisible Pyrique Redwing. Once you kill the invisible form the real Pyrique Redwing will reappear.

How it's done:
Setup your group in the Tower just before hers. Kill the 4-5 mobs inhabiting the tower and setup camp. Finish any last minute buffs.

The first part is very easy. Have your MA pull her out of her tower. She quads for 900s, nothing else. Healers use quick heals to keep the MA up, as she will despawn after getting her down to 75%.

She will then disappear and 6 shadows of her will spawn back in here tower. Just a side note: dont aggro the shadows until you are ready to begin..5 of them are "fakes" and cast a 1500dmg single target nuke, and they will proceed to nuke anyone who gains aggro during your prep time.

Now you will need 6 tanks for this encounter. Give each tank a shadow to tank, and give each tank a cleric/healer. I recommend putting back up healers on each tank as well (see why later).

As you engage the 6 different shadows 5 of them will hit for 100-200s or less and nuke for 1500. The 6th shadow is the "real" version that hits for 900 damage.

Therefore, as tanks gain aggro, the one who has the "real" version needs to call engage for the rest of the raid and the rest of the raid will /assist said tank..and engage on the "real" version.

All backup healers (Druids) will then switch from healing the other 5 tanks (clerics will remain on their appointed tanks regardless), and will proceed to dps the "real" version. NOTE: IF you are the backup healer and your tank has the "real" version, continue to heal with the appointed cleric, as you dont want the tank to die.

Here comes the confusing part. After hitting on the "real" version for a few seconds all 6 shadows will shimmmer and reappear. This is normal, but it will appear as you arent gaining any further.

In all actuality you are gaining ground, as the invisible version is being just dont know that.

Rinse and repeat: Have the tank that is tanking the "real" version call engage and go from there.

You will do this about 10-20 times, depending on your dps, and eventually the real Pyrique Redwing will reappear at 100%. Healers fast heal the MA and proceed to give her a dirt nap.

This is basically correct. The idea is right at least.

The shadows repopping seems to happen every 40 seconds. If at this time the real shadow is <=90% HP it will emote "Pyrique`s Shadow staggers backward as her shadowy duplicates fade away."

You must get this emote 6 times, then real will repop and you can kill.

First off, excellent post and it outlines the necessary strategy to take her down quite accurately.

Now, I must say, this is a very cruel script. Low health aggro is pretty much instant death (due to 5x1500dd nukes) and even the tanks on the fakes need significant healings because they recast said nuke every 5 seconds.

We did this script on Sunday (50ish EP/bit of Time geared folks). It took us about 45 minutes, and the shadows seemed to shimmer at least 30 times. On average, 9 tanks died about half a dozen times each. Maybe we were doing something wrong, but for the loot that was dropped (Ember, 2x Greater Rune), I can safely say that we won't be doing it again.

Sounds like Clawpike in PoAir except more complicated. Curious what the loot was?

We also tried to take her down on the Bristlebane server. Needless to say 3 groups are just not enough. She quads for 900, can be slowed somewhat hehe. AE is 1200. At around 80% she disapears and six shadows of her appear in her room. The shadows themselves do a shadow step or soemthing and after they do that they have full health. So what im thinking is we started out good. We pulled her out of her room and at the end of her hall. When she disapeared all six poped in her room and they dont agro. So im thinking after they appear go in and attack one till you can find one that does not regen health. It has to be a trick where one of the shadows is really her and u have to find it. Im not sure when I will be able to try this method again, but if you can try it please post here. Remember after you pull her to the end of her hall and she disapears, have your tanks move in and go from one shadow to the next till one of them dont shadow step and regen back to full. If on does move to the next and so on. This is just a theory, but it does make since. You may want to have a few clerics and extra healers handy. If you cant criple or get slow to stick you will need to chain heal. Hey if you want, get your chanters to charm the dragorns hehe they make good tanks too!
