This is a non-progression raid task that begins with Captain Areha Burina (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Level 68+
- Minimum 6 players; maximum 54 players
- Minimum amiable faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Completion of "Creating an Antidote" (Tier 1 solo task)
- Completion of "Burning Arrows" (Tier 1 solo task)
- Completion of "Greed of the Goblins" (Tier 1 solo task)
- Completion of "Children of Gimblax" (Tier 1 group mission)
- Have hailed & said "work" to Chieftain Relae Aderi to begin Tier 2 (character flag)

NOTE: Tirranun has a banishment effect that casts players out into the lava, stripping them of aggro. If Tirranun is left idle, the event resets. Because of this, you will most likely need at least two players (or one player with a pet) on Tirranun's aggro at all times.

You say, 'Hail, Captain Areha Burina'

Captain Areha Burina bows. 'I see a good heart in you and a measure of bravery. Serve Firiona Vie and Norrath's Keepers well!'

You have been assigned the task 'Fanning the Flames'.

Tirranun has proven himself to be a deadly adversary. He shows no discretion, remorse, or reason for the wholesale slaughter for which he is responsible. Many innocents that crossed his path here in Lavastorm lie dead because of his irrational rage. Take a force into the Delve and smother his flames once and for all. The beast must not be allowed to wreak havoc on our people any longer.



Task Steps

Touch the cave entrance to Tirranun's Delve 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)

Confront Tirranun 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Kill Tirranun 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)



The Event

The entrance is a cave in the northeastern part of the Broodlands.

In the zone, every few seconds while on the path leading up to Tirranun, you'll see an emote:

The platform shudders violently, causing you to nearly lose your footing.

This coincides with a small knock-up/knock-sideways and strips levitation effects. This appears to be restricted to the section closest to the path, though levitation was stripped elsewhere.

At the end of the path is Tirranun's platform.

Tirranun says 'You will burn for your defiance. Your flesh will fuel my flames.'

Note to solo players: If he banishes you far enough away, he strips aggro and immediately resets. To get around this, you'll want at least two players (or a player and a pet) on him while the banished player makes their way back to the platform. Also, it's possible to "kill" Tirranun in the first phase, which completes the task. If this happens, the event continues on, but you'll be on a 30-minute timer after which the zone shuts down, booting everyone out.

Initially, Tirranun hits for a max ~2,600 (no rampage; no flurry; no spell effects). Every 40 seconds, he banishes someone to a random point in the lava. You need to get Tirranun to 0% health (takes ~825,000 damage), at which time he falls down on the ground, changing into "Tirranun`s ashen form" (non-aggro) and starts regenerating.

After having fallen to the ground, adds called "whorl of searing ashes" start spawning and auto-aggro. These spawn one at a time, with increasing frequency (as often as every 15 seconds). These continue to spawn throughout the rest of the encounter. Adds hit for a max ~900; have ~50,000 hitpoints; are mezzable and stunnable; and proc "Blinding Ash":

Blinding Ash: PB AE 100', Unresistable (0)
1: Blindness (1)

Once "Tiranun`s ashen form" reaches about 85% health, he stands up, changes into "Tirranun`s Blazing Body", and buffs himself with "Form of Lava":

Form of Lava: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
1: Add Defensive Proc: Lava Splash rate mod 300 (adds proc for 3,000 dmg)

Now, he hits for a max ~2,100 (no rampage; no flurry) and has ~800,000 hitpoints. Also shortly after standing back up, he changes into "Tirranun the Ancient Protector" and adds two spells to his arsenal:

Breath of Tirranun: PB AE 350', Fire (-375)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1500
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 500 per tick (60 seconds)
3: Increase Poison Counter by 50

Tirranun's Incinerating Aura: PB AE 350', Fire (-475)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 2250
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 750 per tick (60 seconds)
3: Increase Poison Counter by 99

Now, he can be killed.



Completion & Loot

Kill Tirranun to complete the event. Event lockout timer is 4 days, 20 hours.

Tirranun the Ancient Protector has been slain by _____!
Tirranun's body bleeds liquid magma, his wounds spurting jets of flame as he comes crashing down.

Tirranun's rage was no match for your valor.

Upon death, a chest spawns with loot, containing three items from this loot table:

Ashen Blade of the Slayer
Blackened Sandals
Brimstone Spaulders
Glimmering Fire Opal Band
Hands of Flame
Russet Rockscale Armguards
Scorched Green Metal Visor
Smoldering Claw of Tirranun

Unlocks on T2 completion, not in T3.

You have been assigned the task 'Turn the Tides of the Sand'.
You have been assigned the task 'Recover the Lost Map'.
You have been assigned the task 'Defend the Kirin Contact'.

Might require Emoush also. But it definitely unlocks before granted the solo quests for T3

Captain Areha Burina is located at +3640, +575, -12 in Lavastorm Mountains.

Captain Areha Burina is the only quest giver.

There are no dialogues beyond the Hail and her response.

Minimum 6 players, maximum 54

Cave entrance is at +905, -1630, +77

Exact zone name is "Tirranun's Delve" and identifies in /who as "delveb"

Upon zone in, you spawn at roughly +2220, -211, -15

Every few seconds on the path up to Tirranun, a zonewide emote occurred stating "The platform shudders violently, causing you to nearly lose your footing." This coincides with a small knock-up/knock-sideways, sufficient to cause 1-5 damage on a fall, and strips levitate effects. This appears to be restricted to the section closest to the path, though levitation was stripped elsewhere.

The task locks when completing step 2, at roughly +3100, -740, +36.

Tirranun is located at +2880, -750, +40, and his first incarnation's name is Tirranun.

Tirranun says 'More bones to decorate my lair.' (On agro.)

Tirranun says 'You will burn for your defiance. Your flesh will fuel my flames.' (I didn't make note of what this comment coincided with.)

Tirranun counts as either a humanoid or animal mob (Heartslash Rk.II functions.) Headshot did not land at any time.

When banishing his target, it is to a random location in the lava pool, and Tirranun does clear his target from hate list, making it all but impossible to solo him. He regenerates very rapidly to 100% and the event resets if no one is on his hate list. The easiest path back up to Tirranun from in the lava is the south edge of his platform.

Tirranun changes into "Tirranun`s ashen form" while regenerating. From this point forward in the event, he no longer banishes.

All adds while Tirranun regenerates are named "whorl of searing ashes". They appear to drop only global loot (Scale Ore was all I got) and spawn one at a time, with increasing frequency. By 80% regenerated, they are spawning every 15 seconds, and continue to do so throughout the rest of the encounter.

Once regenerated to full health, "Tirranun`s ashen form" changes name to "Tirranun`s Blazing Body" and self buffs with "Form of Lava," which can be dispelled.

Shortly afterward (didn't expect it, didn't record his health, I suspect 80%), he changes name again, this time to "Tirranun the Ancient Protector" and is again buffed with "Form of Lava."

Upon death, a zone wide emote occurs: "Tirranun's body bleeds liquid magma, his wounds spurting jets of flame as he comes crashing down."

Task lockout on success is 4 days 20 hours from time of request.


Edit:

It is possible to solo it if you're a pet class, or put out heavy enough DPS that you never get banished. Also of note is that if you put out enough DPS to kill Tirranun, completing the task before he enters his ashen form, the event does continue as normal, but you have a fairly short time to complete it before being booted from the zone.

Aggro bounced back and forth between 80 Monk and 80 SK. 85 Zerker dealt with adds.

Before Tirranun falls down (Enough dps will drop him before he can dispell)

Min Hit - 376
Max Hit - 1805
Avg Hit - 810
Avg DPS - 288
HP - 500,000

Several Whorl of searing ashes spawned while waiting for Tirranun to stand back up, 1 at a time increasing in rate as he gained health.

After standing back up (Begins to cast Breath of Tirranun at this point)

Min Hit - 190
Max Hit - 1712
Avg Hit - 790
Avg DPS - 328
HP - 1,500,000

14 Whorl of searing ashes spawned during the fight, each with about 40,000 HP.

can't remember hardest hit, it's been a while.
High ac though, and it's not too bad.

The fight itself however...

Agro, and fight him down. Every so often, an add spawns and moves in. Mez'able, but will pileup. Usually have offtanks to kill them.
When he reaches 0, he ae dispells all buffs, and goes dormant while he regens. Invuln will save you from the dispell, so at 1%, sk, cleric, paladin, and bards can save themselves. Usually though, set people have mgb's ready at that time.
add's still pop and move in during the regen period.
At 80%, he stands up, but keeps regenning to 100%.
Someone needs to be on him when he stands. If he reaches 100% and no one has his attention yet, the whole thing resets, and he will again fall and regen.
Otherwise, with a tank on him when he stands again, he hits 100%, and you beat him down for good.
Each stage, his name changes too. I just cant think of what it is offhand.
I think it was tirranun, then tirranun's ashes? , and finally, Tirranun the Ancient Protector.

Out of curiosity, once a guild has people at this tier in progression, can the event be redone for gearing purposes? Or is everyone in the raid flagged once victorious; ie: unable to repeat?

Because if repeatable, could this not make for a very nice alternative raid to some of the Time or lower GoD raids?(with regards to loot + gearing toons for further progression, etc)
