This is the first of two events in the Arthicrex raid expedition.

On zoning into the instance, you find yourself just outside the tunnel system that leads to the hive's entrance.


- Kill off the cliknar drones throughout the area.
- Aggro the nameds to trigger the main event.
- Keep all aphid grublings mezzed (10 total spawns, staggered).
- Avoid the "falling rocks" auras (8k dmg).
- Kill the fertile sporali as they spawn (every 45 seconds).
- Kill Klix, Xixyx, and Klax`cik within a minute of each other's deaths.

Event Mechanics

There is no starting dialogue or special trigger to this event. It starts once you aggro the named.

Xixyx says 'Strike them down! Attack!'
Klix says 'Strike them down! Attack!'
Klax`cik says 'Strike them down! Attack!'

The three of them (Klix, Xixyx, and Klax`cik) must be kept aggro. They have to be kept within the event area (you can't move them towards the zone-in, into the hive, or anywhere beyond). They must be killed within one minute of each other (note: this is NOT a balance event) or they respawn at full health. Kill order does not matter.

Sporali adds spawn about every 45 seconds. They are non-aggro. With each add set is 1x "a fertile sporali" which must be killed within about 25 seconds of its spawn. If you don't kill it within this timeframe, it heals each named by about 25% of their health.

Only a set amount of aphids spawn (15-20 of them). They are non-aggro and attempt to heal the cliknar. If you kill the aphids, they respawn. They are mezzable and should be crowd-controlled.

The rock aura seems to spawn in random locations and will chain nuke for 8,000 about six times over the course of 12-15 seconds. This aura appears around every minute, maybe less.

Cliknar Drones

Throughout the event area are numerous static spawns called "a cliknar drone." These don't have any impact on the event, but need to be cleared. They hit for a max ~9,000 but have a small amount of hitpoints. Some are mezzable; some are not.

Each drone drops an item called "Cliknar Command Jelly". This item can be used to charm any of the named in the event. While the charm lasts about 60 seconds, using it has a downside: When the charmed mob breaks the effect, it becomes immune to spells for a time (unknown how much time).

The Named

Each named hits for a max ~15,500 and enrages. None of them flurry, rampage, or AE rampage.

Klax`cik and Xixyx have no AEs associated with them, but Klix casts "Searing Poison":

Searing Poison: PB AE 50', Poison (-650)
1: Blindness (8)
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 3500 to 5000 (random) per tick (18 seconds)

The named must be kept within the event area. If you pull one down towards the zone-in or into the actual hive, you'll see this warning emote:

Klax`cik is losing connection with the hive and could go berserk at any moment.

If, after a few seconds, the named is still outside the event area, you'll see this:

Klax`cik has gone berserk. His eyes go wild with unbridled fury!

...At which point the named begins rampaging, flurrying, and hitting harder.

You must kill the three nameds within one minute of each other. If even one named is still alive after 60 seconds of the first one dying, the dead named will respawn at full health.

The Sporali

Every 45 seconds, a group of non-aggro sporali spawns. Each spawn set includes about 6x "a noxious sporali" and 1x "a fertile sporali". Each sporali spawns on top of a random player in the zone.

The noxious sporali have an aura called "Noxious Aura":

Noxious Aura: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Silence
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 8000 to 12000 (random) per tick
3: Amnesia (Silence vs Melee Effect)

The fertile sporali has to be killed within about 25 seconds of it spawning. If it's not killed within that timeframe, it heals Klix, Klax`cik, and Xixyx for 20% health each:

Klax`cik is healed by a fertile sporali
Klix is healed by a fertile sporali
Xixyx is healed by a fertile sporali

The Aphids

Soon after initiating the event, small aphids called "an aphid grubling" begin spawning from the ant hills in the area. They are non-aggro, attackable, and mezzable.

Upon spawning, an aphid will slowly make its way towards one of the named. If it reaches a named, it boosts the health of its target:

an aphid grubling is consumed by Xixyx, bolstering his health.

Aphids will keep spawning until 10 of them are up at a time. They respawn if killed, so your best option is to keep them controlled.

The Falling Rock Aura

Throughout the event, you'll see these two emotes:

The Cliknar Queen lets out an ear splitting screech that shakes the cave walls.

The ceiling begins to crumble.

As the second emote flashes on your screen, a damage aura develops in a random spot in the event area. The aura lasts about 15 seconds and chain nukes anyone in its range with "Rain of Stone" (8,000 dmg).

Event Fail & Reset

In the case of a wipeout and the three named being left alone, the event will reset after a few minutes.

NOTE: When it resets, the entire zone respawns including the cliknar drones.
