This is the final event within the Deathknell raid expedition. Shortly after completing 'Unwelcome Guests', you will see this emote:

Ayonae shouts, 'Meet me downstairs in the concert hall. Assemble the choir. We will perform again and shatter this bloodborne curse in four-part harmony!'

Ayonae Ro and her choir are located at the bottom of Deathknell.

Ayonae Ro belts out a harsh and dissonant melody. 'Now that my choir and I have reunited, my song will restore my Plane of Music to its former glory. Rejoice, minions, we will retake the day and destroy this endless night.'

Every few minutes she will emote indicating adds are about to rush your raid:

Ayonae Ro's vocalizations segue into a complex harmony. The altos prepare to join her in song.

Ayonae Ro's vocalizations intensify, underscored by a low rumble. The basses prepare to join her in song.

Ayonae Ro's vocalizations build, crescendoing into a disturbing melody. The sopranos prepare to join her in song.

Ayonae Ro's vocalizations fade softly, decrescendoing into a soft melody. The tenors prepare to join her in song.

Adds activate 4-5 at a time and can proc one of two spells:

Sonic Pulse: PB AE 40', Magic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 1000
2: Stun(2.00 sec)

Maddening Scream: Single Target, Prismatic (-475)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 15000

To begin with, Ayonae Ro cannot be damaged. Divine Fetters of Ro must be clicked one at a time when Ayonae Ro becomes "vulnerable".

Ayonae Ro is momentarily distracted, exposing vulnerability.

If done properly, one of two emotes:

A look of annoyance crosses Ayonae Ro's visage as she is mired by _____'s unseen fetter. She quickly shakes off the effect and returns her attention to the battle.

A look of confusion crosses Ayonae Ro's visage as she is constrained by _____'s unseen fetter. She takes a moment to free herself from the bond and then redoubles her efforts.

If done improperly, the clicker will get charmed:

Ayonae Ro easily deflects your attempts to fetter her. She coos, 'What is this trickery? You'll not catch me off my guard. Prepare yourself to join my bards.'

Once 30 clicks have been successfully done, she becomes damageable.

A look of utter fear crosses Ayonae Ro's visage as she is trapped by _____'s unseen fetter. She writhes and struggles but is unable to free herself from the bonds.

Once her health hits ~20% (?):

Ayonae Ro screams as her body is bound by unseen fetters. Before her voice is silenced, she utters one final plea, 'NO! What have you done?! Are you mad? This is my Plane! . . . Release me, now!'

...And a broken music box spawns with loot.

Deathknell Event #4: The Mad Choir - information inaccurate

TL;DR: DPS her immediately, click fetters every 3%, she dies after 27 successful fetters clicks when she hits 19%. Mezz adds, kill unmezzable.

Each of the waves of adds can mostly be mezzed. Only the named mobs seem to need to be killed. The non-named adds will despawn after a time - maybe 30s or so? The named mobs may also despawn at the same time if not killed, or perhaps the non-named mobs (yellow con if doing this in-era) despawn a certain amount of time after the named is killed. I'll try to test at next week's raid to see if they can all be kited until despawning, but with the AoE stun that might be a tall order.

When Ayonae Ro performs her "vulnerable" emote, one person should click their fetters. Note that the fetters must be equipped to click, and she must be targeted. Easiest tactic is to have one person sort the raid tool alphabetically and call out who's next to click and who's up after them. Emote happens, "Soandso, click. Good job, Someoneelse next, Thirdperson on deck." Missed fetters clicks are a big deal, as it has a whopping twenty minute cooldown.

Ayonae Ro's HP is gated behind fetters clicks - every time she becomes vulnerable and is successfully clicked, she can be damaged another 3%. She doesn't seem to become vulnerable again until she reaches that threshold. Every 3% someone will click their fetters then you'll DPS her another 3%. Repeat this 27 times, allowing you to damage her down to 19%. I believe she just dies at this point, though there may be one final click of fetters needed. I didn't have a 28th entry in my logs but the person who clicked might have been too far from me.

The "A look of utter fear crosses Ayonae Ro's visage as she is trapped by _____'s unseen fetter. She writhes and struggles but is unable to free herself from the bonds." line never happened. This may be from an older version of the event where you need to click her 30 times before she can be damaged.

Almost a straight up DPS fight. This is by far the easiest event in the whole expansion for PoR...

Make a bane list when she becomes vulnerable bane her, takes about 30 banes to make her active you will know from the emotes.

Have some offtanks/chanters for the adds, mezz the non named and kill the named while you wait. IIRC the adds despawn if you just mezz them, thou I think the named ones have to be killed.

When antonious ro becomes active 3 man CH was sufficent to keep up the main tank. She stuns him on occation thou so watch tank switches. DPS down to 75% and the aoe's start. There is no way possible to keep those aoe's off of the raid, you cure one another one hits you. Some are mana drains, as a cleric I watched for that one and popped RC. Outside of that have druids/shammy's/clerics do thier heal over time MGB's to heal the raid. Go all out on DPS at 75%.

Now DPS A Ro to about 19% iirc, she'll emote, then bane her once and you are done gratz collect your loot. The whole time while DPSing her you'll still need pally's/sk's/chanters to deal with the adds.
