This is the fourth event in the Sanctum Somnium raid expedition.

You can access the event area by clicking the door on the third floor of Morell's Tower.


- Kill "a sand dervish" and then run away its location.
- After the dervish dies, four tornadoes spawn at the center and rush down to the dervish's kill location. You'll be death touched if the tornadoes get near you.
- Kill another four dervishes, avoiding another four sets of tornadoes that spawn after each of their deaths.
- This spawns Lord Silifore. Killing him completes the event.

The Timer

A timer starts as soon as you aggro the first dervish. Some time after 11 minutes have passed, you'll see this emote warning:

The sands of time are running low. Time is almost up!

The exact timer is unknown, but speculated to be 20 minutes.

The Sand Dervishes

The sand dervishes are permanently rooted; hit for a max ~24,000 (no flurry; no rampage); and cast "Blinding Breeze" on random targets:

Blinding Breeze: Single Target, Magic (-710)
1: Blindness (1)
2: Unknown #409 (100/75/0)
3: Decrease Hitpoints by 25000 per tick (4 ticks)

a sand dervish has been slain by _____!
a sand dervish's corpse disseminates into a pile of dust and debris.

As soon as a dervish dies, you see this emote flash up on your screen:

A deadly sandstorm is brewing!

Four tornadoes spawn at the center of the event area and rush towards the location the dervish just died. You have to avoid these tornadoes or you'll be death touched:

Sandstorm: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 1200000

Another sand dervish spawns in another part of the event area. Kill four more of them and avoid the ensuing tornadoes.

Lord Silifore

After you kill the fifth dervish, you'll see this emote:

Lord Silifore shouts, "Enough! It is time to end this! Welcome to your final nightmare!"

A sandman named Lord Silifore spawns near the port-up location.

Lord Silifore says, 'It has been fun, but now you die!'

He hits for a max ~24,000 (no flurry; no rampage) and casts "Sleep of Ages", "Overhand Punch", "Quick Sand", "Immobilizing Nightmare", "Devastating Breeze", "Burning Sands", and "Sand Trap":

Sleep of Ages: Single Target, Magic (-710)
