This is an event in the first Frostcrypt raid expedition.

Hearol the Tactician is located in the large room in the west wing of Frostcrypt. In order to make him aggro, at least six live players must approach him.

Hearol the Tactician says, 'Welcome, to the last room you will ever see. Minions! Cleanse these intruders of their souls.'

The room will be divided into two halves, each with four shade giant adds and a Trapmaster:

2x a shade of Zek
2x an enraged shade of Zek
1x Trapmaster Fygor / Trapmaster Xygor

The shades of Zek are like regular trash mobs in the instance -- nothing special.

The Trapmasters are not attackable until the shade adds are dead. Until that happens, they will wander around the room placing traps on the ground. 1-2 rogues should be disarming traps during this time.

The Trapmasters hit much harder (~6,700) and have a lot of hitpoints. Once both are dead, Hearol appears again.

Hearol the Tactician shouts, 'You surprise me, infidels. Unfortunately for you, your time has come to an end.'

Hearol the Tactician vanishes if only for a brief moment, 'I will crush you mortals. Leave now, or become a permanent fixture of Frostcrypt!'

The room splits into four quadrants, separated by walls of ice which are destructable. Where people wind up seems to be random. Just knock down the ice walls to move between quadrants.

Hearol the Tactician says 'Today is a glorious day to die.. For you!'

Repeat every ~20% (?) health until he's dead.

Hearol hits for a max ~8,500; single-target rampages; AE rampages for full damage; flurries; enrages; and summons. He is immune to slow.

You can avoid adds by staying away from the four corners of the room.

Loot from this event includes 1-2 Glowing Obsidian Runes, 3 Marks of Valdeholm (backflag), two Timeworn armor molds (first list), and two other items (second list):

A Timeworn Armguard Mold
A Timeworn Boot Mold
A Timeworn Bracer Mold
A Timeworn Glove Mold
A Timeworn Skullcap Mold

Bladed Silver Pendant of Zek
Lambent Earring of Melded Iron
Luminous Froststeel Warclub
Ornate Mask of Fallen Dreams
Runed Cold Iron Warhammer
Shaped Sapphire Ice Sculpture
Tattered Cryptrobber's Cloak
Torn Shawl of the Ice Priests

Where do we get the raid? Is this just one of them things you approach him and it starts the event? or is there someone we have to hail to get this event?
Its mostly easy

Room splits and pretty evenly splits the raid. It also splits you BY entire groups.

Now traps are kinda a joke we disarmed a few but the rest didn't hurt too bad.

Every time the room splits on his 20% you really need to watch the spawns in the corners cause they stack up or just go ahead and kill them.

Hearol is Immune to slow.
