The Plane of Time raid expedition can be initiated with as little as one and as many as 72 players. It is triggered by clicking on one of the time dials in the outerboundaries of the "Plane of Time A" zone.

The portal, dim at first, begins to glow brighter.

The portal flashes briefly, then glows steadily.

You have entered The Plane of Time.

In the distance, an hourglass appears, the grains of sand falling methodically into place. As quickly as the image was formed, it dissipates. You have one hour left.

There are six "phases" to this expedition. These links point to individual event/lockout listings. Also be advised you are on a time limit for each:

Phase One (one hour time limit)

Phase Two (leftover time + additional one hour)

Phase Three (leftover time + additional one hour, 15 minutes)

Phase Four (leftover time + additional four hours): Terris Thule, Saryrn, Tallon Zek, and Vallon Zek

Phase Five (leftover time + additional four hours): Cazic Thule, Bertoxxulous, Rallos Zek, and Innoruuk

Phase Six (leftover time + additional two hours): Quarm

After completing Phase One:

Solusek Ro says, 'This is absurd, why are we wasting our time and energy on this?! Direct action is needed, now! Banishing Zebuxoruk will not stop the mortals from entering into our planes. Their greed for power will have them soon trampling through our realms!'

Rallos Zek says, 'On this I agree! We must take action and the time is now. I will not have these mortals achieving the powers that we hold.'

Fennin Ro says, 'Calm yourselves, you need to appreciate the situation that is at hand.'

Xegony says, 'Please listen to reason, we are doing what we must. The mortals possess a direct tie to Zebuxoruk. If his stasis is finished their link will dwindle as well as their powers and knowledge.'

Rathe says, 'The knowledge that was given to them by Zebuxoruk will fade from their minds. We must do this now, for if they were able to translate the divine language all existence would unravel. The balance of power in the universe would be destroyed.'

Solusek Ro says, 'This is exactly the point that I am making! So you agree we must show them now that we are the power above them, and not to be questioned!'

Rallos Zek says, 'You must see what he refers to; we must turn to Norrath and show them our power. What they are trying to accomplish cannot be allowed to come to pass.'

Fennin Ro says, 'My son, please understand we must stop this advancement of mortals without halting their existence. The balance of power must be maintained. Without the mortals the balance would fade.'

Solusek Ro says, 'So they have made your decision for you too father. You are all wrong, this will only bring them further into our realms seeking answers! We must take action now. Have at your foolish games, I will not allow them to obtain my power.'

You look up and see a meteor burning through the sky; Solusek returning to his tower to brood over the matters at hand.

Rallos lets out a sigh of frustration that vibrates the ground at your feet.

Rathe says, 'Rallos still your warring heart. This is what must be done. We must place him in a stasis from which he will not be released. Come share your power. We must commence now.'

Xegony says, 'Mithaniel, Karana please record what you see here. With your good nature I am sure that your records will be impartial to any side. We must record this for the ages and learn from our mistake of allowing Zebuxoruk to gain so much power that is easily passed on to mortals.'

With a sudden jolt the wall comes into crystal clear focus.

As the path before you opens up in a swirl of mystical energy, the faded image of an hourglass appears. You have one additional hour.

After completing Phase Two:

A bright aura streaks through the sky. The power of it sends a surge through your body that makes your hair stand on end.

The Triumvirate of Water speaks as one voice. It says, 'Now step up to the chambers. Give a part of yourselves to the bind on Zebuxoruk. Through our power, the bonds on him will never be broken. He will be eternally placed in stasis.'

Saryrn says, 'What of our weakened state. I refuse to return to my realm without the power to rule over my minions.'

Terris Thule says, 'Yes, how can I spread my touch over my lands if I lack so much of myself?'

Cazic Thule says, 'Do not worry daughter, we shall stay here until we are able to recover our strength.'

Rallos Zek says, 'Our armies shall serve us as we regenerate our abilities. We have nothing to fear.'

Bertoxxulous says, 'My soldiers of pestilence shall watch over us. Let us return to our chambers now.'

Innoruuk says, 'Are you enjoying watching this Hammer of the Tribunal? I hope your petty report will show my disdain for the Tribunal having no hand in this.'

The Seventh Hammer says, 'Do not waste your energy Innoruuk. You know they are eternally preoccupied with their trials. Surely even you understand many of these trials exist because of the hate you instill into the population of Norrath.'

Innoruuk says, 'Do not mock me! I shall seek you out after this is done and my power is restored. You will not be so smug after our next meeting.'

With a sudden jolt the wall comes into crystal clear focus.

As the path before you opens up in a swirl of mystical energy, the faded image of an hourglass appears. You have an additional one hour and fifteen minutes.

After completing Phase Three:

Terris Thule says, 'I am certain my warriors will have no problem holding back any intruders, but I have my doubts about the other armies.'

Vallon Zek says, 'Surely you jest. Your armies are better than the regiments from our realm?'

Tallon Zek says, 'There is no question that our warriors of War and Tactics will be the backbone of the army.'

Saryrn says, 'It is no matter anyways, no mortal could ever ascend to this place. These precautions are unnecessary. Bringing them here was a waste of time.'

With a sudden jolt the wall comes into crystal clear focus.

As the path before you opens up in a swirl of mystical energy, the faded image of an hourglass appears. You have four additional hours.

After completing Phase Four:

Rallos Zek says, 'Something is wrong. I feel Tallon and Vallon's spirits have weakened.'

Innoruuk says, 'Don't be a fool, that is just from giving a part of themselves to the bond on Zebuxoruk.'

Cazic Thule says, 'No. It is more than that, I can feel the force of Terris has been drained as well.'

Bertoxxulous says, 'This is not possible, could mortals have reached us here? Call in our armies, we are too weak to fight now.'

Innoruuk says, 'You are all incompetent! I knew you all could not be trusted. If we are defeated in our weakened state, I do not know if we will be able to coalesce again. I will never forgive you all for what has transpired today!'

Rallos Zek says, 'Now is not the time to bicker! We must focus our strength on these puny mortals! Minions of the army, come to our sides. Your gods beckon you, we need you now!'

With a sudden jolt the wall comes into crystal clear focus.

As the path before you opens up in a swirl of mystical energy, the faded image of an hourglass appears. You have four additional hours.

After completing Phase Five:

Fennin Ro says, 'Impossible! How could the races of Norrath have traveled this deep into the Planes?!'

Xegony says, 'I regret that it has come to this. They leave us with little choice, however. We must fuse our powers together. Separately we are weakened, together we will halt their advances.'

Triumvirate of Water says, 'Unfortunate as it may be, I agree. We must call upon the beast we swore would never be needed.'

The Rathe says, 'Then let us begin. Let our abilities and powers meld into one. It shall be our final protector and savior. The only thing standing between us and non-existence'

Your head pounds from the amount of raw energy that begins to coalesce throughout the plane. Bright flashes of red, blue, green and brown begin to come into focus on one single point. A large towering beast begins to manifest itself. A horrible creation with all the powers from each elemental realm. Your body begins to shudder by the mere presence of this being.

With a sudden jolt the wall comes into crystal clear focus.

As the path before you opens up in a swirl of mystical energy, the faded image of an hourglass appears. You have two additional hours.

After completing Phase Six and Breaking Out Zebuxoruk:

Zebuxoruk staggers about and looks at you, drowsy from his weakened state. 'My thanks to you. I am surprised to see you have made it here. We must get back to Norrath. The time has come for me to share my knowledge. Something is coming, a threat to us all, and the sands in the hourglass are thinning. Make haste and take me back the way you came.'

Zebuxoruk says, 'I am surprised at the gods for taking such drastic measures, though I suppose all of the creations of the Nameless are capable of displaying poor judgment and irrational behavior. These gods are burdened with powers and responsibilities beyond our comprehension, yet at times even they do not understand the eventual effect of their actions. I am compelled to share the knowledge of the gods with the populace of Norrath, so that I might save their creations. They do not realize that if mortality ceases to exist... if they are not worshipped and held aloft by the beliefs of those that they now have grown to fear... they will fall from power and a new age of darkness will wash over existence as they know it. I did not seek to interfere with them or their realms, only to free them from a fate that awaits all of us. It is this fate that now stands ready, greedily gathered on the edge of the void, ready to test the will of all mortals.'

Zebuxoruk says, 'If they have taken measures these extreme I must rethink what I have done, and what I will do. If there was this much cause for conc...'

Suddenly in a bright flash a feminine figure appears before you. Your ears ring from the loud burst as she slowly materializes.

Druzzil Ro speaks with no movement of her mouth. Her thoughts flow through you, calming you as you begin to comprehend what she is trying to communicate to you.

Druzzil Ro speaks to your mind, 'Zebuxoruk, my student I cannot allow this to happen. If you were to escape from another prison the will and power of the gods will have been compromised.'

Zebuxoruk says, 'Druzzil, I have missed you. Wasn't it you that taught me in your own realm to seek knowledge and share it in all forms?'

Druzzil Ro speaks to your mind, 'That I did, but I also taught you not to share your wealth of knowledge if it would affect the fate of others. I cannot allow this to happen. I must set things back to how they were before you and these mortals arrived here, I believe that you cannot understand this and I am sorry.'

Druzzil Ro looks upon Zebuxoruk one last time, as a wave of sadness comes across her gentle face.

Druzzil Ro begins to chant an incantation; mana flows out from her body in all directions. Things begin moving slowly in reverse. You become dizzy from the experience and fall to your knees. As you look up the last thing you can see is Druzzil Ro smiling in your direction. She then waves her arms gracefully and points at you.

There is a brilliant flash and you find yourself displaced through time and space. For a moment you lose touch with yourself. As you wake, you find yourself back in the Plane of Knowledge, moments after talking to Maelin with the information of retrieving the Quintessence of Elements. Druzzil has preserved the timeline, and restored existence back to its normalcy.

You have entered The Plane of Knowledge.

You're not wrong. It is confusing somewhat. See my post under the Phase 1 article and I hope that clears up some questions.

I always wanted to run through time but with my main being a rogue and no mercs allowed, I just never got around to it. As a 105 rogue with just shy of 130k HP (total crap by today's standards) I decided what the heck. I thought with 0 healing it might take some tricks, but no, it was a fun smackdown. Phase 3 got me down to 84% health at the worst point due to so many waves of mobs and some of them getting behind me at points. Many of the gods in phases 4 and 5 were marked humanoid, so they got assassinated quickly. Poor Cazic got 1 rounded when he charged me.

It was a lot of fun to finally be able to see this content, even if it is an eternity later. To all those out there 105+ (heck, probably 100 in decent gear), go for it - you don't need a healer.
Stuffs for bard?

I have a Lv.66 bard I ran through Txevu and Tacvi with, reaping most, if not all, valuable loots from. He's already got his Rapier of Somber Notes with the same clicky as this and at 28/20 ,it'd be a downgrade. Any infos on any other applicable drops from here for a Lv.66 bard?

Also, on a blue server, I've a 70 shm and 80 zerk. I know theres a nice Slow clicky from here, but any drops for them? And, Would that duo be pushing it on a win? ...Chances are ill need help from at least 1 guildy

Will PROBABLY do my research but as for the singer I foubt anything would considerably be an upgrade..

If you tend to go too fast through the scripts (Phase 1 - Fire) then mobs could sometimes not be activated and stay untargetable in the script and you have to leave the expedition - 11h lockout timer - nice for a people waiting for their raid evening.

Bah - this zone is old like hell and they have these bugs still in there. Crap...

Trying in 11 hours again. No wonder that nobody wants to join and waste an evening...
Timed out...

Got through phase 4 and ready to start 5, but had to take a break (kids/wife). Should have stayed logged in zone as when I got back on a few hours later my instance had reset and had to start over without the chance of loot on phase 1-4

I wanted to try to get a Symphony of Battle clicky off Innoruuk for my bard, so I ran through the Time Raid expedition last night. I had never done this before, but the whole thing through Quarm took me about 2.5 hours with 100 mage, 100 shaman and 100 bard 3 box. Honestly, I think the mage could have soloed it, as this content is very easy by modern standards. Most of the fights just have a ton of adds that are easy to mow down with the mage beam, so bring an AE damage class if you want to get through this quickly. At this stage of the game, there was no need to pay any attention to scripts or mob tricks, or even to heal much, just blow it all up.

I remember leveling up in the PoP era thinking I would never even make it to the elemental planes, more less be raiding in Time. Even though I am 12 years late, it was fun to finally play through this.
