|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the second event within the Deathknell raid expedition. Shortly after completing the Enforcers event, you will see this emote:
Ayonae shouts, 'Tarry not, mortals. As I speak, Mayong's forces replenish themselves by calling on reserves from the Demi-Plane of Blood. You all must descend through the trapdoor and eliminate them before they overtake my tower again. Be on the guard for anything, even your own ineptitude. Newcomers often lose their balance in the dizzying spiral of Vertigo.'
Amidst the din of ringing bells, you hear the unmistakable shriek of bats originating from the southern chamber. Perhaps you should investigate it further.
You can now trigger Vertigo by touching the trap door.
The world is spinning. It's difficult to tell which way is up or down, left or right. You are on the verge of losing your sense of balance completely.
The trapdoor swings open and you clamber down to the landing below.
There are four stages to complete. Each must be completed within five minutes, or the event fails.
Note that throughout the event, the spell Vertigo is cast upon random players (2000 per tick DoT for five ticks - if not cured in time, makes you drunk). Also, players will be randomly switched with one another.
The first stage involves a Truefaith batkeeper on the first level down the ramp. He summons fledgling bats one at a time. You must kill 20 bats.
a Truefaith bat keeper summons forth a blooddrinker bat from the Demi-Plane of Blood.
After killing 20 bats within five minutes, you will see this:
Amidst the din of ringing bells, you hear the muted clicking of a mechanical device originating from the eastern chamber. Perhaps you should investigate it further.
This is the second stage which involves a Truefaith sneak on the second level down the ramp. He spawns traps one at a time which must be disarmed.
a Truefaith sneak kneels, concealing a mechanical device upon the floor.
20 traps must be detected and disarmed. They are no joke. If they go off, they will hit you for 13,000 and root you in place (effect Lacerating Spikes).
While this is going on, your raid must still contend with the bats from the first stage.
After disarming the required amount of traps within five minutes, you will see this:
Amidst the din of ringing bells, you hear shuffling and moans of the undead originating from the northern chamber. Perhaps you should investigate it further.
This is the third stage of Vertigo and takes place on the third level down the ramp. Here, you will battle undead mobs named "a focus of the Collective" and "a member of the Collective". Make sure to mez and /assist properly here. The spells they AE depend on how many are of them are up, so kill them fast. Spells are Thoughts of the Collective III (AE for 2500); Thoughts of the Collective II (AE for 5000); and Thoughts of the Collective I (AE for 10000).
While this stage is going on, your raid must content with the bats from the first stage and traps from the second stage.
After killing a sufficient number of undead within five minutes, you will see this:
Amidst the din of ringing bells, you hear the grunts of deep orcs originating from the western chamber. Perhaps you should investigate it further.
This is the final stage of Vertigo and takes place on the fourth level down the ramp. Here, you will contend with deep orc servants. The orcs don't have to die -- you just have to "exhaust" them. You can do his by kiting them around.
While this stage is going on, your raid must contend with the bats, traps, and undead from previous stages.
If you fail at any time:
Ayonae Ro cries out, 'You have failed to expel Mayong's minions from my home. Perhaps I have placed my faith in the wrong mortals, or perhaps I am fated to endure the vampire's foul presence forever. I would rather be destroyed than suffer this torture any longer. If you have the tenacity, you might give it another try . . .'
If you succeed, a blood-stained chest will spawn with loot.
Ayonae shouts, 'Splendid! However, our work is not quite done. Though Mayong Mistmoore can no longer call in reinforcements for the moment, the leaders of his expedition yet linger nearby. I can hear the murmurings of more dark vampires holed away in the attic.'
