This is a raid trial.

Find the Projection of Arcana in the northwestern portion of the Muramite Proving Grounds.

You say, 'Hail, Projection of Arcana'

Projection of Arcana says, 'Halt, _____, and hear my words. Your background and your status are of no consequence. All are welcome to participate in the trials to prove their worth, or die trying. Whosoever approaches me has adressed the embodiment of Foresight, keeper of the trials of Efficiency and Specialization. The former is a small-scale test, while the latter is large-scale. My task is to explain the rules and usher hopefuls into the battle arena. Would you like to hear the rule for small-scale or large-scale trials or do you wish to enroll in Efficiency or Specialization?'

You say, 'Specialization'

Projection of Arcana says, 'At times it pays to be focused in your abilities, and at times it does not. This trial will test your skill at using your strengths when they are most effective, and otherwise relying on your companions. If you have this ability now is the time to prove your worth.'

You have entered Proving Grounds: Mastery of Specialization.

You say, 'Hail, Master of Specialization'

Master of Specialization says, 'This is the Mastery of Specialization trial. You must demonstrate your ability to use your primary skills and fall back on your secondary skillset when necessary. Are you ready to [begin]?'

You say, 'We are ready to begin'

Master of Specialization says "Very well ! Let the battle commence !"

The trial has begun. You cannot bring additional people into your expedition at this time.

Kill Master of Specialization, who has a few AEs: Rigidity, Imprecision, Curse of Misfortune, Impurity.

Shell of the Master spawns following the Master of Specialization's death.

Also upon completion, you will also receive a Mastery of Arcana Rune, one of six pieces needed for Citadel of Anguish access.

As currently indicated (at the time of this post).... you show 1 for the minumum and maximum on players.

This is a RAID event and I am confident the max is 54.

The minimum used to be 18.... but I am unsure if they dropped it. I am pretty confident, however, that it isn't 1.


Trial is cake

Switch out weapons, make sure casters know what spells to cast, this is a no brainer dead easy trial.
Dropped in addition to the usual runes and what is listed:

75 Mage - Tunare

This trial is no joke, I would say one of the most difficult 2nd to Adaptation especially after they changed it.

I'd say this is the hardest trial now Adaptation seems much easier than this guy.
