Here is the strat my guild used on the progression server:

We put everyone in one of the cubbies and assigned a MT and MA. MT stood at the center portal while the crystals were turned in. Once you turn the the 4 crystals (1 per surrounding "a portal crystal") Tarn spawns at the center "a crystalline portal" almost instantly. The MT then pulls Tarn into a separate cubby and melee dps and OTs follow. The adds spawn on top of Tarn so they never get close to the healers who are in the origin cubby. Caster dps start working on the closest portal in the first cubby then work around the room. As long as you have enough dps to keep up with adds you can throw some dps on the crystal in closest to melees between spawns. Once the crystals were down we set the casters on Tarn and kept melee on adds. Pretty fun fight.

The crystals had about 100khp.

EDIT: I believe our enchanter was able to PBAE stun both of the adds. Only the "a snarling feran" are mezzable, however. We killed them too fast to need mez however.

In "the wall" hallways, just enter and go to the end to the room with the portals in it. He pops when you hand the 4 crystals to the portals

what are the approximate hp of portals
# Jun 03 2005 at 2:43 AM Rating: Decent
Guild has taken this fellow out several times now. We get the MT/RT on Tarn, who hits like a wuss, maybe 10% of the his hits were over 600 on a full def aa 2100ac non-defensive war, and take out the crystals while 2 groups work pops.
Hardest part is keeping the adds under control.
= Non-mezzable
= Mezzable
Each hit as hard if not harder than Tarn.
We take them out as they pop 2 at a time every 30 sec or so. We use 2 groups with a strong tank to work them while the rest take out the crystals asap. Once the crystals are down smoke Tarn and then take care of the rest of the adds.
We've done this with single OT's on non-mezzables while mezzing everything else. The "kill them as they pop method" was way more user friendly for a 40ish raid of partial Ele geared.
Your results may vary depending on how many chanters you tend to bring on your raids.

I couldn't get the 69 Shaman slow to hold. This is the combo that worked well:

65 Malos
66 Putrid Decay
61 Cloud of Grummus

This yielded a "Partial" slow.

Snarling are mezzable, but they add up fast, so bring more than a few chanties in case one drops :)

We had offtank on the Raging, don't believe he was mezzable.

The crystals don't deal dmg. they do however have a truckload of hp. think Agnarr portals..
RE: Crystals
# Jan 18 2005 at 11:27 AM Rating: Decent
Is disintegrate effective against the portals in this event like it is against Agnar's portals?
RE: Crystals
# Mar 07 2005 at 2:41 PM Rating: Decent
the portals are lv 70 so disintegrate will not work.

they heal tarn throughout the fight, fight defenatly reminds me of the agnar's fight i.e kill the portals and then focus on tarn who's dps isn't all that bad

Yes he does have an ae
Freezing Winds

I am interested in the faction that this Tarn Icewynd is on.. It is true he is referenced in the containment of a traitor page 1 & 2. He is the one imprisoned beyond the sanctum at the cost of the icy crystals, whose elaborate magic now holds him in bondage.

I am concerned of the faction hits. If the pages refernce to him. They tell of how to free him. I will do some experimenting today. Perfumed scroll fell in RS some time ago. It no doubt has something to do with one of the royal family either the princesses or the queen herself. He may or may not be a traitor. He may very simply be in love [and banished for it]. A dark secret resides here. I'll play carrier over the next few days and see who it goes to. Someone please post on the faction from his kills. Also the immediate FIRST minute of this mobs spawn. I mean does he come out swinging. If not [factioning] an ally will be able to Hail and intermediate for him with this letter dispatch.

CA killed him again on nov 21st, dropped a 150hp/mana 15 to all stat ring, 30ac or so. Name of it was Tarn's Ring

No, you cannot kill the crystals before you turn in the icy crystals to start the event. Learn through trial and error. Its fun!

What does he hit for?
Any AEs? Slowable?
Someone mentioned killing the icy crystals, can this be done before he spawns (about 5 mins according to one of the posters)? Guesstimate on HP?
Thanks in advance.
# Nov 10 2004 at 2:58 AM Rating: Decent
Killed him on Saryrn with my guild Collective Assault after doing Pyrique/Hivequeen/Velkitoren etc..

Dropped some 140hp/mana 20 to all stat 15atk, 10 avoidance cloak - Feran Hide Cloak was the name with 2 greater runes.

Killed him today with my guild.

-Triggered around 5min start after hand 1 icy crystals to each 4 side crystals

-He spawns +2 adds every 1 min or so. Some adds mezable and some are not best to just kill

-He has like instance regen to full hp until you kill all 4 side crystals

-Drop for me a drum better then rathe http://lucy.allakhazam.com/item.html?id=70593 + a glowing and greater rune.

going to try to get a screen shot submited soon

This information isn't correct as far i can see.
We tried Tarn yesterday and got whiped in nothing.
First, there hasn't been any delay between triggering and Tarns spawn. As soon as the 4 items had been traded in, Tarn spawned and the event started.
Also, 1 minute for the respawn is way to much. As seen yesterday, 2 adds spawn more every 30 seconds and are only partially mezzable.

And one question: how is this with those crystals? Stops killing those also the spawning of adds? Or stops it just Tarns insane HP regen?
Would you suggest to kill the adds or just offtank/mezz till the crystals are down?

Btw, the crystals have also a lot of DPS, with 35 people VT and some elemental gear we managed to kill 3 crystals before we got killed by the adds. We had 2 enchanters with us and some offtanks.
RE: Stats
# Feb 16 2005 at 9:14 PM Rating: Default
The point of the crystals are they cause tarn to have insane regen. You must destory all 4 crystals before you can kill tarn.

Best strat for him is to off tank tarn while half the raids keeps the adds clear and the other half kills the crystals. Once all the crystals are down put everyone that you can on tarn while keeping the adds clear or mez the mezable and kill rest of the adds much like the murk guy just little easier as far as adds.

Any other drops? My guild does Earth rings soley to get Rathe drums, and this would be a much better option as its spawnable so can do as we wish. Of course, if theres other loot as well it makes it better for the other classes.

Would be nice if the drum was a semi common drop, and we could put earth rings behind us forever.
RE: Stats
# Nov 04 2004 at 4:58 PM Rating: Default
Only done it one time but i am sure there are other drops will post after we have done it more times. Seeing how glowing runes are hard to come by i am sure we will be doing this more.
