|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the final event in the Convorteum raid expedition.
It's triggered as soon as you approach the steps to the pit.
So Father has sent you against me. So be it. Minions, arise and destroy them.
- Make your way around the outer area of the pit, killing the skirmishers, bridge guardians and protectors, and lava elementals.
- Kill the shield protectors guarding the bridges.
- Kill the shield maidens to activate The First Creation.
- Kill The First Creation while fending off its adds and killing skirmisher respawns.
NOTE: If you want the achievements and bonus chest for this event, you'll have to keep all four bridge guardians alive. Good luck!
40 minutes after triggering the event, The First Creation gains increased regeneration and all adds start hitting harder. Their damage output increases as more time passes, eventually making the event impossible.
39 minutes into the event, you'll see this warning emote:
You think you are powerful. I will show you true power, the power to uncreate!
After 40 minutes, event mobs get progressively stronger.
The Death Touch
Throughout the entire event, The First Creation will cast "Curse of the First Creation" on random targets (one at a time about every 30-60 seconds).
"You are cursed by the touch of The First Creation" is the message you see when it lands on you.
Curse of the First Creation: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
4: Increase Curse Counter by 6
5: Trigger Effect: Doom of the First Creation on Fade
If this isn't cured before it wears off, the target gets death touched.
There are six skirmishers around the perimeter of the pit. They cast "Skirmisher's Stealth" on themselves as soon as they spawn. This makes them hidden from view and keeps them off track. You can tell where they spawn by the location of the white benches along the wall. They spawn in front of those.
They have a respawn time of about 8 minutes, so you'll have to kill these a few times throughout the event.
They hit for a max ~16,000; mem blur themselves; warp around to new targets; and cast a few spells.
Skirmisher's Chromadrain: Single Target, Chromatic (-700)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 7500 per tick
2: Decrease Movement by 50%
Skirmisher's Chromastrike: Single Target, Chromatic (-700)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 39000
It is recommended these be killed as quickly as possible as soon as they aggro your raid.
The Bridge Guardians & Protectors
Bridge guardians are leashed to their spawn points. If you pull them too far away, they warp back and reset to 100% health.
As long as the bridge guardian is alive, the two bridge protectors alongside it will respawn when killed. You'll want to kill the bridge guardians first.
These mobs hit for a max ~17,000 and have a larger than normal amount of hitpoints. They are pure melee.
Each bridge guardian drops a Gravity Core. The effect on this item can be used to do 3.6 million damage to The First Creation. It can be used at any point in the fight with The First Creation, but be warned that it generates instant aggro on the caster.
This item disappears if you die while it's still in your inventory.
The Lava Elementals
If you go around killing mobs one by one, you may see this emote:
Minions! Prepare yourselves! They are trying to gang up on you just a few at a time!
It's not known for sure if this emote is related to extra lava golem spawns, but it's one of the more likelier possibilities.
As you make your way around the pit, lava elemental golems will spawn in the lava and attack you. These mobs hit for ~8,000, are pure melee, and are stunnable (but not mezzable). They're also charmable. They are not tethered.
The Shield Protectors
Shield protectors hit for a max ~17,000 and are pure melee. They have an average amount of hitpoints and no special abilities. They are not tethered.
The Shield Maidens
There are four shield maidens inside the center circle. They are permanently rooted. They hit for a max ~17,000 and don't cast any spells aside from their buffs.
The maidens should be approached based on the buff (or lack of buff) you see in their buff windows. How the maidens each buff themselves, is random.
A maiden with the buff "Shield Maiden's Reflection" will reflect all spells cast upon her:
Shield Maiden's Reflection: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
1: Increase Chance to Reflect Spell by 100%
A maiden with the buff "Shield Maiden's Spines" will have a large melee damage shield on her and be immune to most melee attacks. Casters also need to be in her melee range in order to land spells on her.
Shield Maiden's Spines: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
3: Increase Damage Shield by 2500
A buffless maiden will redirect 25k+ damage onto her current target for every spell cast on her.
The First Creation goes live after the last maiden dies.
The First Creation
The First Creation hits for a max ~24,000; flurries; single-target rampages; and AE rampages. He casts a knockback called "Repulsion of The First Creation" and a damage shield on himself called "Lava Elemental Protection" (starts low; works its way up to 1,000 dmg). He also continues his death touch triggers.
Repulsion of The First Creation: PB AE 200', Chromatic (-700)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 10000
2: Knockback (12) and Toss Up (3)
He must be kept in the center near his spawn point. If you push him too far away from his spawn point, he warps back and resets to 100% health.
Many types of adds appear throughout the First Creation fight. All are mezzable and stunnable. The live mobs (gnolls, kobolds, and sporali) are known to be charmable.
a cursed human
a drifting specter
a wailing banshee
a hulking zombie
a gnoll guardian
a gnoll soothsayer
a kobold defender
a kobold spiritcaller
a sporali needleroot
a sporali replenisher
a sporali stoutspore
Cursed humans and zombies cast "Death's Embrace":
Death's Embrace: Single Target, Corruption (-90)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 12500
Banshees cast "Banshee Scream":
Banshee Scream: Single Target, Corruption (-90)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 6500 per tick
The sporali may attempt to heal the First Creation.
