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

This event takes place outside the complex where you'll find Pallorax the Soul Slayer wandering around.

Pallorax the Soul Slayer unfurls his mighty wings and howls with the fury of chaos!



Summary

Fight Pallorax to 80%, follow him to a portal, kill the riftseekers before he consumes their power. Do this again at 60%, 40%, and 20%. Kill Pallorax within 25 minutes from start to finish for the win.



Pallorax the Soul Slayer

Pallorax hits for a max ~14,000; flurries; single-target rampages (does not AE rampage); and enrages. He casts three spells:

Draw of the Void: PB AE 100', (-550)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 6500

Flanking Slash: Directional 20', Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 3500
2: Unknown #380 (100/1/0) (a knockback)

Screeching Fury: PB AE 100', (-550)
1: Decrease Spell Haste by 70%
2: SpinStun

(Note: He used to cast a fear AE called "Screeching Terror", but this seems to have been intentionally removed.)

On "Draw of the Void", you'll see the emote: A tear in space forms as the void opens before your eyes



The Riftseekers

At 80%, 60%, 40%, and 20% health, Pallorax goes inactive and runs to one of the Riftseeker portals in the area:

Pallorax embraces the darkness of the void, shielding him from combat.

As he reaches a portal, he begins drawing on the Riftseekers' power:

Pallorax draws power from the rift slaves!

Kill the two Riftseekers before he consumes them. If you kill them in time, they buff you.

A smile washes over the Rift slave's face as he dies, 'Chaos rules me no more!'

If he's able to consume them, they buff him:

Consuming the rift slave, dark energy crackles from Pallorax's fingers as his chaotic magic grows in power.

Consuming the rift slave, Pallorax laughs as his wounds appear to close before your eyes.

The possible spells:

Riftseeker's Bulwark: Unresistable 1000 PB AE
Mitigate Melee Damage by 25%, 100000 total

Soloable

Pallorax is now soloable. Other than as a trophy kill there's not really any reason to do it, but it is fun.

A half hour parse had him at just over 57,000,000 hit points. As a solo SK, I didn't have the dps to down the rift slaves before he absorbed, so I ignored them to save mana. His max hit, after he powered up, was 25,433. Average hit for the duration of the fight was 3,982

Make absolutely certain you get all the mobs cleared before you begin the fight. I did a quick clear and didn't double check and missed a few mobs all in one spot. They're easy enough to deal with, but it's extremely easy to avoid. Just do a quick lap before engage.

As a point of reference, my SK isn't particularly amazing. 14,200 AA's - Buffs to 11k AC - 120k HP without Impose for power or staunch stance (which I didn't use in the fight anyway - Impose was resisted enough early I quit trying) A lot of my gear is slightly dated group gear. I am wielding Farrum Ventus, though.

Burn hard on engage to get your timers refreshing. Be careful of the power up as he starts dishing out some respectable damage then.


TLDR -

Numbers according to a max tanking AA, 11k AC, 105 Shadowknight - Over a 30m 16s parse.

HP - 57 million
Max hit - 25,433 (post power-up)
Average Hit - 3,982

Casts Draw of the Void about once a minute and Screeching Fury slightly less often - Don't forget to double check all adds are cleared before engage.

Just did this as our first win. Paladins stunning seemed to interrupt nearly all the fears. Hardly had any of the raid get feared.

The fear has been broken for a few months now. He just doesnt cast it. Have not done him in about 2 weeks but as of last patch i don't believe it was fixed yet.

Pallorax's fear was removed.. it wasn't a bug. There was a problem with the geo in the zone that was fearing players out of bounds, causing them to bounce to the zone-in.

fairly often during the fight Pallorax fears most of the raid. make sure to pay attention and have people ready to pick up aggro if needed so you dont get unnecessary deaths. after the fear wears off get your butt back on him, you need all the dps you can get.

[Engage]
DPS DPS DPS down to 80
at this point he turns black and un-attackable
follow pallorax
kill the riftseekers at the portal before he consumes them
after the riftseekers die pallorax turns back to his normal color and you can attack him again
DPS DPS DPS down to 60
at this point he turns black and un-attackable
follow pallorax
kill the riftseekers at the portal before he consumes them
after the riftseekers die pallorax turns back to his normal color and you can attack him again
DPS DPS DPS down to 40
at this point he turns black and un-attackable
follow pallorax
kill the riftseekers at the portal before he consumes them
after the riftseekers die pallorax turns back to his normal color and you can attack him again
DPS DPS DPS down to 20
at this point he turns black and un-attackable
follow pallorax
kill the riftseekers at the portal before he consumes them
after the riftseekers die pallorax turns back to his normal color and you can attack him again
DPS DPS DPS Untill Pallorax is dead.. enjoy lewts

takes a decently (crystallos/low tier SoD) geared guild to work him fast enough with only 36... once he turns orange your going to have to have your rangers use WS or warrior furious. and hope you can dps him dead before it drops. for the most part he just eats through the raid once he changes.

While your fighting him, keep him away from the walls. if you push him up onto the walls and he *steps into the void* aka runs to the riftseekers.... he will warp out ahead of you.

pretty simple fight... obviously no adds as long as you clear all the trash before you start the fight.
Coeval essences Drop in Hard mode

Seems to be totally variable, as to what slot, but Coeval essences drop from Korafax Hard mode events. A Coeval Chest Essence dropped from Pallorax hard one night. Thats the only chest I've seen so far, but have seen numerous amounts of other slots. Just too bad there is only one essence in the Korafax hard Chests.

I don't see this mentioned, you have 30 minutes to kill him or he goes insane and hits for 40k. He turns orange when this happens.
