This is a raid task given by Larquin Fangbreaker involving an instanced Bloodmoon Keep zone in which you encounter the leader of the Bloodmoon Orcs, Ralkor Bloodmoon. In order to request this raid, you must have completed the series of five group missions as well as the first two Bloodmoon raids, "The Fanged Moon" and "Crazok's Throne".

He offers the task upon hailing him.

You have been assigned the task 'Ralkor's Crystals'.



Enter through the secret door 0/1 (Bloodmoon Keep)

The instance entrance is the same as the Crazok raid, up through the ghost halls and through Falstaff's chamber.

Kill 1 Ralkor Bloodmoon 0/1 (Bloodmoon Keep)

Enter the instanced Bloodmoon Keep zone and kill/invis your way up to the final room. It is a large room with several "unconscious" named orcs around it (the same ones you've killed in the previous raids).

At the head of the room is Crazok Moonfang in an unconscious state. As you approach Crazok, Ralkor spawns:

Ralkor Bloodmoon's voice echoes in the chamber as you approach, "So you've made it here at last whelps. I will enjoy siphoning your souls into my crystals. Your spirits will certainly make a powerful addition to my army of the damned."

Ralkor Bloodmoon shouts, "Come my brothers! We will add their souls to our army of shadows!"

For each named orc in the room, a bloodmoon channeler spawns. They do not aggro unless they're attacked. In order to activate Ralkor, these channelers must be killed. (Is there a penalty for not doing so in a timely manner?)

A flickering ghost may also appear here (under what circumstances?).

a bloodmoon channeler has been slain by _____!

The giant crystal behind Ralkor grows dark as the last of the shadowed crystals is released. Ralkor growls as his aura of invulnerablity is lifted. "So you want to make this difficult do you? You cannot hope to win! You will all serve me in this life, or the next!"



Ralkor attacks, along with Vesthun Wolfpaw and three shades (2x "a spirit guardian" and 1x "a spectral force"). Ralkor hits for a max ~13,000 (unmitigated), single-target rampages, flurries, and enrages. He also procs a cripple/DoT:

Ralkor's Crippling: Single Target, Disease (-450)
1: Increase Spell Damage by 0%
2: Decrease Movement by 50%
3: Decrease Attack Speed by 125%
4: Decrease Hitpoints by 4000 per tick
5: Increase Curse Counter by 36

The named orcs around the room spawn at certain health intervals.

Vesthun (spawned when Ralkor activates) hits for a max ~8,500; single-target rampages and enrages. When he reaches 50%, a wolfcaller and a few worgs spawn.

Vesthun Wolfpaw has been slain by _____!



When Ralkor hits 90%, the two Boneshard brothers spawn - Galrin Boneshard and Wilnok Boneshard.

Ralkor Bloodmoon says 'Sons of Boneshard! Your day of rest has not yet come! The Bloodmoon still has need of your blades!'

They hit for a max ~8,000 and both enrage. Galrin single-target rampages while Wilnok flurries. Their health must be balanced down to their deaths.

Galrin Boneshard has been slain by _____!
Wilnok Boneshard has been slain by _____!



When Ralkor hits 75%, two aura mobs spawn - Malkazor Darkshadow and Balvik Spiritshadow.

Ralkor Bloodmoon says 'Malkazor! Balvik! Your work is not yet finished!'

They hit for a max ~8,000 and both enrage (no rampage, no flurry). Balvik casts a regeneration aura which significantly heals the two orcs if they're in range. Malkazor casts a damage aura which can build up pretty quickly if you're in range:

Shadow Cyclone: Single Target, Disease (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 5500 per tick

Balvik Spiritshadow has been slain by _____!
Malkazor Darkshadow has been slain by _____!



When Ralkor hits 60%, Grendol Wolfmaw spawns.

Ralkor Bloodmoon says 'Return from the darkness Grendol! Your worgs have missed you!'

Grendol is a pushover compared to the other orcs. It hits for a max ~8,000 and enrages (no rampage, no flurry, no other abilities).

Grendol Wolfmaw has been slain by _____!



When Ralkor hits 40%, two more aura mobs spawn - Harlos Stonethunder and Korvak Stonefire.

Ralkor Bloodmoon says 'Harlos! Korvak! Sons of stone live again!'

They hit for a max ~8,000 and both enrage (no rampage, no flurry). They each cast some very nasty auras, capable of killing an entire raid in seconds if not careful. "Lightning Cloud" in particular hits as much as four times per second.

Harlos:

Earthquake: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 4500 per tick
2: Decrease Movement by 50%

Lightning Cloud: Targeted AE 50', Chromatic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 3500

Korvak:

Stonefire Bomb: Single Target, Fire (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 6000

Harlos Stonethunder has been slain by _____!
Korvak Stonefire has been slain by _____!



When Ralkor hits 25%, Crazok Moonfang spawns.

Ralkor Bloodmoon says 'Awaken Crazok! Your strength is needed once more!'

Crazok hits for a max ~9,000; enrages (no rampage, no flurry); and casts two spells:

Bloodmoon Lycanthropy: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Charm up to level 0
2: Illusion: Werewolf

Crazok's Bite: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Unknown #377 (100/13263/0)
2: Increase Disease Counter by 36

Crazok Moonfang has been slain by _____!



Ralkor Bloodmoon has been slain by _____!

In Ralkor's room, there are 9 "Crystals" each with an aura.

The first crystal you see when you enter has:

Regeneration Aura
1: Increase Hitpoints by 150 per tick
2: Increase Mana by 100 per tick


To either side of this one are:

Elemental Aura
1: Increase Spell Damage by 100%
2: Limit: Resist (Magic excluded)
3: Limit: Resist (Poison excluded)
4: Limit: Resist (Disease excluded)
5: Limit: Resist (Chromatic excluded)


The next set of crystals are:

Decaying Aura
1: Increase Spell Damage by 100%
2: Limit: Resist (Magic excluded)
3: Limit: Resist (Fire excluded)
4: Limit: Resist (Cold excluded)
5: Limit: Resist (Chromatic excluded)

And, at this point I forget the order of the auras, but they are...

Healing Aura
1: Increase Healing by 100%

Arcane Aura
1: Increase Spell Damage by 100%
2: Limit: Resist (Fire excluded)
3: Limit: Resist (Cold excluded)
4: Limit: Resist (Poison excluded)
5: Limit: Resist (Disease excluded)



The Regeneration aura strips Clarity type buffs and prevents them from sticking, but quite useful.

And yes, you should expect a good 15-25 minutes of chaos during this event and be prepared to die a couple of times...

It was the funnest event I've been in so far.

3 spirit guardians and 1 spectral force spawn/aggro upon the event starting. After a short time(I'm assuming if channelers are not killed), more ghosts(I counted 8) start spawning including flickerings.

There is no indication of a particular order. The description above has been adjusted to make that clear.

Delightful chaos
# Nov 05 2008 at 3:37 AM Rating: Good
Did this one last night. Be prepared for pure chaos for about 15-20 minutes. Also, a couple really beefy tanks will serve you very well. There will be sometimes 3 separate mobs to tank, all heavy hitters.
