This is a raid trial.

Find the Projection of Realms in the eastern part of the Muramite Proving Grounds.

You say, 'Hail, Projection of Realms'

Projection of Realms 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 Realms, keeper of the trials of Ingenuity and Adaptation. 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 Ingenuity or Adaptation?'

You say, 'Adaptation'

Projection of Realms says, 'Can you modify your strategy in the heat of battle ? In an unpredictable and chaotic environment will you be able to adapt quickly to whatever adversities you face ? If you have this ability now is the opportunity to prove your worth.'

You have entered Proving Grounds: Mastery of Adaptation.

You say, 'Hail, Master of Adaptation'

Master of Adaptation says, 'This is the Mastery of Adaptation trial. You must demonstrate your ability to adapt to an unpredictable and ever-changing opponent. Are you ready to [begin]?'

You say, 'We are ready to begin'

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

Kill a shapeshifting mob, which appears randomly as either (all main mobs lvl 73+, all sidekicks under 70)

"Construct of Pain"

"Construct of Fire" (AE Gaze of the Pyrilen, comes with a "a lick of flame")

"Construct of Ice" (AE Breath of the Gelidran, comes with a "a mote of frost")

"Construct of Brutality" (AE Rampage)

"Construct of Power" (comes with "a diminutive construct")

Upon successful completion, a Shell of the Master spawns with some loot for the raid.

This trial results in the Mastery of Realms Rune, one of six pieces needed for Citadel of Anguish access.

I wanted to try to solo this tonight and was able to request it with a group of 6 (just me in zone), but was not able to trigger it inside without more support. I received the message "Master of Adaptation says 'Without a larger party here, you have no chance. Return to me when you have assembled your forces here in the arena.'
I could only guess how many have to actually be inside the zone.

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.


Trials need some more loot updates...

Mote of Frost

Thought should add that a mote of frost is charmable with either true name or Edict of command, it despawns when named changes form so I have never noticed a early charm break. So enchanters can save some of their comrades and do a little extra dps to boost.
Mote of Frost

Confirmed tonight. Best trick ever, thanks.

Also -- the lick of flame is NOT charmable with either True Name or AA. So don't bother.

Bliss of the Nihill does work on the adds from the Construct of Power. We did not try WoM. Adds despawn when new Construct version spawns.

the a lick of flame , and the a mote of ice that pop during the construct of fire/ice bosses hit for 3k+ and are slowable.. also charmable supposedly (I have not tested this though) - have a designated offtank/good healer for these or they will rip through low health people.. MGB a heal during construct of fire/ice pop

the A Diminutive Construct (5) that pop during the construct of power are AE mezzable

construct of PAIN - high dps , flurry (weak against PIERCE)
construct of BRUTALITY - ae page (weak against SLASH)
construct of POWER - 5 pets spawn , move fast AE MEZZABLE (weak against BLUNT)
construct of ICE - spawns add (REFLECTS spells)
construct of FIRE - spawns add (weak against SPELLS)

use MGB heals when necissary.. (fire for example)

Fire AE Edit, looked on lucy and has 36 curse counter, so guess it takes 2 RC4s or RGC to remove, assuming Ice is the same. Anyhow Fire is nasty for casters I'd try get it removed fast

The Ice didnt come off when I used RC3 though, but no mana drain
