This is an event in the Ashengate North raid expedition.

The event is triggered simply by aggro'ing Lethar.

Lethar max hits for ~7,000, single-target rampages, and enrages. He casts two spells throughout the encounter:

Lethar's Breath of Corruption: Directional [frontal] 500', (-50 Corruption)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 8000
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 800 per tick
3: Decrease Agro Multiplier by 10%
4: Increase corruption counter by 16

Shadow of Lethar: PB AE 2000', (-50 Corruption)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 8000
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 800 per tick

If your fight takes too long, he will AE one of two DT triggers on everyone. Who gets which spell is random.

Doom Shadow: Single Target, Unresistable (-1000 Corruption)
1: Improved Spell Effect(Doom Shadow Trigger)
2: Increase corruption counter by 4

Doom Shadow must be cured by single-target corruption cure spells. If it is not cured, the inflicted player will receive a death touch.

Sunset's Shadow: Single Target, Unresistable (-1000 Corruption)
1: Increase Max Hitpoints by 20000
2: Increase HP when cast by 20000
3: Increase corruption counter by 4

Sunset's Shadow should NOT be cured. Instead, someone inflicted with this spell should have their health topped off. Doing so will allow them to survive the spell "Setting Sun" which will land soon after Sunset's Shadow.

Setting Sun: Single Target, Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 32000

You will also have adds to contend with. Upon aggro'ing Lethar, he will spawn a number of drakes. (Note that while Lethar is rooted in place, the adds are not and do not have a tether range.)

A lotus breath drake casts:

Cone of Sweet Breath: Directional 500', Cold (-500)
1: Decrease Mana by 1000

The fleshrender drake and monitor drake are pure melee.

At 75%, Lethar will become inactive and move down the hallway, re-activating shortly after (this resets aggro, so watch out).

Lethar growls, 'What precisely is your goal? Are you here to seek fortune or power? Raid our war supplies and pillage the temple's artifacts? Perhaps even claim the right to the Scale for yourself?'

At 50%, he does the same thing.

Lethar growls, 'Or maybe you wish to topple this empire, eh? A bold but futile move. Even if you were able to stop my son Dyn`leth, our people and our army would live on. You can never eradicate us.'

At this point, a mirrorscale drake spawns. This drake is unattackable and will move to different locations around Lethar. Lethar must be kept facing AWAY from the drake. If he is facing the drake when his frontal AE goes off, the drake will reflect it onto the rest of the raid.

At 25%, he moves to his final position.

Lethar growls, 'Wait . . . Selay sent you, didn't she? That broken wretch has no idea what she's done.'

At about 5%, he will AE a blind and disappear.

Lethar disappears from view, 'Another time, mortals.'

A chest called "Artifacts of the Reliquary" spawns containing the event's loot.

Loot includes 1 Mark of Ashengate + 2 Glowing Obsidian Runes + 2 Timeworn Armor Molds (first list) + 2 items (second list) + a chance of Serpent's Essence (for cultural augmentations):

A Timeworn Armguard Mold
A Timeworn Boot Mold

A Timeworn Glove Mold
A Timeworn Skullcap Mold

Cape of the Lavaborn
Embershank, the Malady
Glowing Obsidian Rune
Haunting Ruby Amulet

Magmaband of Cestus Dei
Mark of Ashengate
Scaleguardian's Guise
Scarlet Legion Command Stone

Not really tethered, but rooted in place (until he moves to his next spot).
"tethered" would mean he can move, but gets bounced back to his spawn when he reaches a certain distance.
