|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is a special one week only raid which was first introduced from June 9, 2008 to June 15, 2008. You must have at least six and no more than 54 people in your raid. |
Whizzlebang Twempt can be found in the Steamfont Mountains between the zone lines for Loping Plains and Dragonscale Hills.
You say, 'Hail, Whizzlebang Twempt'
Whizzlebang Twempt says 'Well Well! you look foolish... er... Strong and Powerful! What would you say to a business [proposition]?'
You say, 'What proposition?'
Whizzlebang Twempt says 'Well it's simple enough ______. Being the observant ______ I know you are, I'm sure you've noticed the large floating contraption in this area! That monstrosity must be dealt with and the Ak'anon Strike Force is on the [job]!'
You say, 'What job?'
Whizzlebang Twempt says 'It's clear to us in the ASF that we must fight clockwork with clockwork. That's why we are proud to have constructed our I.R.A. to deal with the upstart Meldrath. Once we have worked out the, er, [kinks] we'll be able to swiftly deal with this situation!'
You say, 'What kinks?'
Whizzlebang Twempt says 'Well, with any ambitious project there are bound to be problems to overcome! Surely you know that! Actually, ______, that's why I am so glad you stopped by! You see, we need some help with a few easy [tests]. If you are [interested], I assure you that you and any friends you bring along will be richly rewarded.'
You say, 'What tests?'
Whizzlebang Twempt says 'It's quite simple. The I.R.A. is our Infinitely Regenerative Automaton. Designed and constructed to be an unstopable and destructive force, I.R.A will recover from any defeat and return stronger and stronger! All we need now are a few practice runs. Are you [interested]?'
You say, 'I am interested.'
Whizzlebang Twempt says 'Excellent ______! Please let me know when you are [ready] and I will transport you to our secret testing facility. Good luck and we assure that your next of kin will be contacted in the event that anything unexpected might occur while you are assisting with our testing!'
You say "ready"
Wizzelebag Twempt says "Have a good time ! Oh, one last note, As part of this test we've place a time limit on the testing protocol. You will have 1 hour to work through as many testing routines as possible. Don't worry you will still be richly rewarded at the end of the test!"
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Infinitely Regenerative Automaton (I.R.A.).
Here, you will encounter a giant steamwork named I.R.A. The event is initiated by aggro'ing it. It hits for a max ~5,100 to begin with and spawns adds:
a clockwork basher (AE rampages; immune to mez)
a clockwork whirlygig (single-target rampages; mezzable for the first four waves)
a flexible repair unit (flurries; immune to mez)
I.R.A. also casts "Acid Blast" on its target, which will increase the amount of damage taken:
Acid Blast: Single Target, (-100 Corruption)
1: Skill Damage Taken(30)
2: Increase corruption counter by 4
This is an endurance encounter which takes place in waves. A wave is beaten when I.R.A. reaches 5%. When this occurs, it goes inactive for two minutes and gains strength. Rinse and repeat until your raid wipes out, OR until you tell Whizzlebang Twempt (at the zone-in) that you've had enough.
You say, 'Hail, Whizzlebang Twempt'
Whizzlebang Twempt says 'If you've [had enough] and want to end the test then let me know. I'll try not to be too disparaging about your performance when I relate the test results to my colleagues. You can [leave] any time you like.'
Rewards scale based on how other guilds/raids do on your server. The raid that makes it to the furthest wave receives the best reward.
Once you have beaten the event.
Whizzlebang says "Excellent work my friends ! This short test is invaluable to us in fine tuning I.R.A into an unstoppable resource in our struggle !"
The Ak'Anon Strike Force is looking for a few good adventurers to help them with their latest project. In their efforts to defeat Meldrath once and for all, these brave gnomes constructed an unstoppable clockwork juggernaut: I.R.A., the Infinitely Regenerative Automaton. Before they unleash I.R.A., however, they need to test it out. Are you up for the challenge?
Rules: When players activate the raid scenario, I.R.A. will spawn along with some smaller clockwork brethren. Every time a raid force diminishes I.R. A. to 5% of its total hit points, it will deactivate. This signals the end of a wave. I.R.A. will reactivate automatically after two minutes, initiating a new wave. The way to "win" this raid is for a player raid group to withstand the highest number of waves on a specific server. Players can end the raid at any time after each wave.
Rewards: Individual rewards for this raid event will be calculated based on the best attempt for each player. Every participant in a raid group on each server will receive a clockwork abacus that is used to track their progress. Once the results for all raids have been tabulated across all servers, a scaling item reward* will be given to players based on their relative performance in the raid. If you've lost your abacus, hail Distribution Facilitator XCV in the Plane of Knowledge (just outside the Guild Lobby entrance) for a replacement.
The first round of this raid scenario ends on 11:00PM PT on Wednesday, August 17, 2016, so get ready to have some fun!
