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 'high amiable' faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Completion of "Turn the Tides of Sand" (Tier 2 solo task)
- Completion of "Recover the Lost Map" (Tier 2 solo task)
- Completion of "Defend the Kirin Contact" (Tier 2 solo task)
- Completion of "Sickness of the Spirit" (Tier 2 group mission)
- Completion of "Calling Emoush" (Tier 2 raid)
- Have hailed Chieftain Relae Aderi to begin Tier 3 (character flag)

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 'Reflections of Silver'.

Our scouts have informed us that Rikkukin is in danger of being attacked by Dark Reign. I must ask you to travel to the highest peak of Stillmoon and find this dragon. He is known among his kind as 'The Defender', and while that is somewhat encouraging, the forces of Dark Reign are tenacious and resourceful and likely to exploit a weakness. If he proves to be unwilling to speak, prepare to defend yourself.



Task Steps

Touch the Cave Entrance to The Ascent 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Confront Rikkukin 0/1 (The Ascent)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Kill Rikkukin 0/1 (The Ascent)



The Event

Rikkukin the Defender is the only mob you'll have to contend with here.

Rikkukin the Defender says 'Is there one among you with a guilty burden to bear? I sense the culprit, the slayer of my mate. You will all perish for this misdeed!'

He hits for a max ~3,400 and has ~900,000 hitpoints. He buffs himself with:

Breath of Rikkukin: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
8: Increase Mana by 8 per tick
10: Increase Hitpoints by 8 per tick

Sheen of Platinum Scales: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
1: Increase Chance to Reflect Spell by 33%
2: Increase Poison Counter by 99

He has a regular AE:

Crystal Chill Fog: PB AE 2000', Cold (-475)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1250
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 750 per tick

And he has emote-based AEs and abilities (10-15-second warning time):

Rikkukin pulls his right arm back, preparing to cut a swathe through his opponents with his razor sharp claws.
--- Warning for AE on right side.

Rikkukin claws at those on his right flank.
--- Seen as right-hand AE is cast. ("Clawed Swipe")

Rikkukin pulls his left arm back, preparing to cut a swathe through his opponents with his razor sharp claws.
--- Warning for AE on left side.

Rikkukin claws at those on his left flank.
--- Seen as left-hand AE is cast. ("Clawed Swipe")

Rikkukin twirls his tail, preparing to sweat away those foolish enough to take up position behind him.
--- Warning for rear AE.

Rikkukin swats at those behind him with his tail.
--- Seen as rear AE is cast. ("Tail Sweep")

Rikkukin rears backs and fills his lungs, preparing to exhale a cone of ice.
--- Warning for frontal AE.

Rikkukin exhales a cone of deadly ice.
--- Seen as frontal AE is cast. ("Rikkukin's Cone of Cold")

Rikkukin twists his body so that the ambient light starts to reflect from his silvery scales.
--- 10-second warning for "Blinding Light" (turn away from him to avoid being blinded - there is no emote seen when it's cast).

Rikkukin's skin seal over with a caustic sheet of malleable ice. The protection will soon make him impervious to melee and magical attacks.
--- In a few moments, he will become temporarily immune to damage.

Rikkukin (Frozen Aura) focuses inwardly and heals his wounds through sheer force of will.
--- Seen as he becomes immune to damage.

Clawed Swipe: Directional AE 500', Cold (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 5000

Rikkukin's Cone of Cold: Directional AE 500', Cold (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 5000

Tail Sweep: Directional AE 300', Magic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 7000

Blinding Light: Single Target, Magic (-1000)
1: Blindness (-1)

Also accompanying his directional emotes is this, letting you know which player he'll be facing (whoever's tanking, of course):

Meanwhile, his attentions are focused on _____.



Completion & Loot

Kill Rikkukin the Defender to complete the event:

Rikkukin the Defender has been slain by _____!
The platinum dragon unleashes a terrible roar as he is cut down. He calls out for his mate, Kessdona, as his body twitches one last time.

Your faction standing with Rikkukin has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Kessdona has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Stillmoon Acolytes has been adjusted by -1.

Rikkukin was inconsolable and a dangerous adversary of Norrath's Keepers. His death could not be avoided.

A chest with loot spawns upon his death containing three items from this loot table:

Choker of One Hundred Diamonds
Clawhammer
Eye of Rikkukin
Platinum Dragonlinked Greaves
Reflective Platinum Leggings
Sash of Frigidity
Supple White Leggings
Woven Ice Pantaloons

Why would the reward include a Dark Reign Token when this is a good-side raid?
