This is one of three events in the "Korafax, Home of the Riders" raid expedition.

This event takes place in the command center of Korafax (the same room as the "Meeting Adjourned" task). Venom Lord Ksathrax stands alone in the room.

Venom Lord Ksathrax says 'You fools challenge me?! Prepare to be obliterated!'



Summary

Balance down the health of the Venom Lord and its Projection while killing off the venom protectors and envenomed spiritists that spawn in the five adjoining rooms (optional, but they power up the named if left alone), as well as the vitrik/kyv/ratuk spawns. Kill the Venom Lord and Projection for the win.



Venom Lord Ksathrax

Venom Lord Ksathrax hits for a max ~13,000; AE rampages (mitigated to ~5,000); does NOT single-target rampage or flurry; and enrages. He casts "Viscous Venom" and "Frenzied Venom":

Frenzied Venom: Area - PC Only 200', Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 10000
2: Trigger if Cured (Venomous Explosion)
3: Skill Damage Taken(30)

Viscous Venom: PB AE 200', Poison (-560)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 1500 per tick
2: Increase Poison Counter by 1
3: Trigger if Cured (Venomous Explosion)

Do not cure these DoTs. If cured, you'll trigger "Venomous Explosion" on yourself and others around you:

Venomous Explosion: Area - PC Only 50', Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 14000
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 4000 per tick (3 ticks))



Envenomed Spiritists

Adjoined to the main room are five smaller rooms (three on the top floor; two on the bottom floor). Every 2:30 from the point of engagement, the Venom Lord emotes:

Venom Lord Ksathrax shouts 'Arise, envenomers! Gift me with the power of your blood sacrifice!'

...At which point in each of the five rooms, 1x "a venom protector" and 1x "an envenomed spiritist" spawn. If the spiritist is not killed, it'll sacrifice itself to power up the Venom Lord. You'll have to kill the venom protector before you can kill the spiritist. They hit for a max ~10,000 and do not summon. A few DPS and a tank is sufficient to handle a room.

55 seconds after the Venom Lord's emote, you see a warning:

an envenomed spiritist shouts 'The ritual is almost complete, Lord of Venoms! Our blood will soon be yours!'

And 15 seconds after the warning (for every spiritist not yet killed):

an envenomed spiritist brutally spills her own blood, infusing the Venom Lord with destructive power.

...And the Venom Lord powers up.

NOTE: You can technically ignore this part provided you can cope with the power-ups.

a venom protector says 'You will not harm the spiritists, mortal!'

a venom protector has been slain by _____!
a venom protector falls limp, unbelieving.
Your faction standing with Discordant Armies got worse.
Your faction standing with Dragorn Forces got better.
Your faction standing with Herald of Druzzil Ro got better.
a venom protector's death signals the failure of the protective ward over a nearby envenomed spiritist.

an envenomed spiritist has been slain by _____!
an envenomed spiritist slumps to the ground, dead.



Venomous Projection

As the Venom Lord hits 50% health, you'll see this:

Venom Lord Ksathrax calls upon ruinous powers to create a deadly poisonous copy of itself.

Venomous Projection says 'Succumb to despair, mortals! You cannot stand against the fury of Discord!'

Venomous Projection spawns in the center of the room - it is a duplicate of the Venom Lord with the exception he casts "Shadowed Venom" instead of "Viscous Venom".

Now you have the two of them to contend with. They'll balance each other's health, resetting to the health of whichever one is highest at the time of the check (he also summons the projection to his location when this happens):

Venomous Projection shouts 'Not so fast, mortals! You will not separate me from my other self!'

The Projection's AEs:

Frenzied Venom: Area - PC Only 200', Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 10000
2: Trigger if Cured (Venomous Explosion)
3: Skill Damage Taken(30)

Shadowed Venom: PB AE 200', Poison (-560)
4: Decrease Hitpoints by 1500 per tick
5: Trigger if Cured (Venomous Explosion)

Do not cure these DoTs.



Adds

At certain health percentages (70%, 40%, 10%), a trio of adds spawns outside the room and rushes in:

a vitrik bloodscreecher
a ra`tuk warblade
a kyv death archer

They hit for a max ~10,000 and enrage. They are not mezzable. The kyvs cast "Savage Volley":

Savage Volley: Directional 300', Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 18000
2: Decrease Movement by 40%

Kill the Projection and the Venom Lord for the win. Adds do not despawn.

Venom Lord Ksathrax has been slain by _____!
Venom Lord Ksathrax's corpse falls to the ground with a thunderous crash.
Your faction standing with Discordant Armies got worse.
Your faction standing with Dragorn Forces got better.
Your faction standing with Herald of Druzzil Ro got better.

Use the stairs to separate the Venom Lord from projection. Fight one in the center area and pull the other back behind the stairs wall and push into the stair wall. The wall will block everyone from being hit with the nukes from both mobs. This will save healer mana. They will be close so they will not warp back to each other.
