This expedition is only available as long as the Level 90 version of Crushbone is active.

This is a mini raid expedition that begins with Elwin Faerlin at the entrance of Crushbone's Level 90 Revamp zone.

You must have at least 3 and no more than 18 people with you. Mercenaries are not allowed in this zone.

You say, 'Hail, Elwin Faerlin'

Elwin Faerlin says 'Shhh... these stupid Orcs will hear you! If I'm [discovered] my mission will be for naught!'

You say, 'Discovered doing what?'

Elwin Faerlin says 'I was sent by the elders of Felwithe to 'deal' with Emperor Crush, but I fear his royal guards are just too strong. Would you be interested in [helping] me?'

You say, 'Of course I'm interested in helping'

Elwin Faerlin says 'Excellent! I doubt I could do this on my own. Let me know when you are [ready] to go. Be warned however, Emperor Crush knows something is coming and has stacked his royal guards against us!'

Demise of the Emperor is now available to you.

You say, 'Ready!'

Elwin Faerlin says 'Alright then. You go first, and I'm sure I'll be right behind you. Onward, to battle and glory!'

You zone into an instanced version of Crushbone.

Reaching the Throne Room

You'll need to clear your way to the castle. Trash mobs in this zone hit for a max ~7,500. Centurions don't see invis and are mezzable. Legionnaires do see invis and are not mezzable.

Make your way into the throne room. None of the mobs in there are active; they will not aggro.

Triggering the Event & The First Wave

Say "audience" to Lord Darish to start the event.

You say, 'Hail, Lord Darish'

Lord Darish says 'Hail yourself! You think you can just walk in here, killing guard after guard, and be granted an [audience] with Emperor Crush?'

You say, 'We demand an audience!'

Lord Darish says 'Your death is closer than you think, scum!!'

Emperor Crush shouts, 'Fools! You dare challenge the might of Clan Crushbone? This can only lead to your DOOM!'

royal sentry says 'Fall before the might of Clan Crushbone!!'
royal sentinel says 'Fall before the might of Clan Crushbone!!'
royal guard says 'Fall before the might of Clan Crushbone!!'
Lord Darish says 'Orc stomp, orc kill - orc weapons, your blood will spill.'

NOTE: Throughout the entire event, in addition to the named mobs listed here, you may also get regular zone trash adds (the centurion and legionnaire orcs) spawning occasionally as the event progresses.

The above-four mobs go live. None of them cast any AEs. Lord Darish hits for a max ~13,000. The royal adds are of less strength.

Once the last of those four mobs dies, you'll see:

Emperor Crush shouts, 'Perhaps you're not as weak and foolish as I first thought!'

Emperor Crush shouts, 'It seems my royal guard was not enough for you. Warlord! Prophet! Your emperor calls you!'

The Second Wave: The Warlord and The Prophet

The Warlord hits for a max ~13,000 and has no AEs.

The Prophet hits for a max ~13,000 and casts "Prophet's Gaze" and "Crippling Mist":

Crippling Mist: PB AE 100', Poison (-750)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 14000 to 22000 (random)
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 5400 per tick

Prophet's Gaze: Single Target, Magic (0)
1: Charm up to level 99

Once the last of those mobs dies, you'll see:

Emperor Crush shouts, 'I always knew those two were useless to me! It's so hard to find good minions these days!'

Emperor Crush shouts, 'D'Vinn! Are you just going to stand there and watch? Defend our alliance! Show these whelps the power of the Teir'Dal.

The Third Wave: Ambassador D`Vinn

Ambassador D`Vinn hits for a max ~16,000 and casts "Rancorous Stab":

Ambassador D`Vinn spins his target around and prepares to attack!

Rancorous Stab: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 30000 to 55000 (random)
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 7000 to 15000 (random) per tick

He also casts "Confusion" and "Caustic Smoke":

Confusion: Single Target, Magic (0)
1: SpinStun

Caustic Smoke: PB AE 100', Unresistable (0)
1: Blindness (0)
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 15750 per tick

Part way through the fight, he mem blurs himself and turns invisible (you can still see him using a target ring):

Ambassador D`Vinn slips into the shadows...

NOTE: If you take too long to kill Ambassador D`Vinn, Emperor Crush will go live before D`Vinn dies.

Ambassador D`Vinn has been slain by _____!
Ambassador D`Vinn's corpse says 'Start digging your grave. The Indigo Brotherhood shall find you.'

Emperor Crush shouts, 'Might of the Teir'Dal indeed! More like a blue-skinned potato sack if you ask me!'

Emperor Crush saps the life from his oracles, boosting his power!

Emperor Crush bellows, 'Indescribable power is MINE! I will face you myself! Come, and die, Heroes!'

Ambassador D`Vinn drops (how many?) items. Known loot:

Dragoon Dirk
Elven Skin Mask

The Final Wave: Emperor Crush

Emperor Crush hits for a max ~17,000 and casts "Crushing Fists", "Shroud of Fear", "Pummeling Strike", and "Siphon of Life":

Crushing Fists: PB AE 30', (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 13500
2: Knockback (5) and Toss Up (2)

Shroud of Fear: PB AE 500', Unresistable (0)
1: Stun (5.00 sec/99)

Pummeling Strike: Single Target, Magic (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 44000 to 59000 (random)
2: Feign Death

Siphon of Life: Single Target, Magic (-900)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 24750 to 30000 (random)
2: Stun (2.00 sec)

His emotes go along with his spell casts:

Emperor Crush shouts, 'Your life force is MINE!' (emoted upon "Shroud of Fear")

Emperor Crush shouts, 'BEGONE, All of you!' (emoted upon "Crushing Fists")

He also spawns several adds. Shade of the Prophet, Shade of the Warlord, Shade of D`Vinn spawn near the throne. They don't cast any AEs. It's not known whether these are health-based or time-based adds.

Also appearing here are "an echo of death" and "an echo of darkness" which spawn upon the deaths of people. The echoes hit for a max ~2,500.

None of the Emperor's adds are known to be mezzable. They all summon from 100% health.

Emperor Crush has been slain by _____!
Emperor Crush's corpse says 'You shall have all the Crushbone orc legions on your tail for my death!'

Note: You may still need to kill adds after Emperor Crush dies.

As the title suggests, I was able to beat this HOT-era raid with a level 105 WAR and battle CLR. Have a button to spam /stand because Crush will feign-dead the tank with greater frequency the longer he is alive. Also do not forget to put on some for of levitation because he can knock you out of the throne room, which can cause the event to reset, which I discovered through my own chagrin (*facepalm*); he seems to have a very short tether/leash from his chair

Dropped the ring and doll, which went to very happy level 90 PAL and ENC alts. The lockout is 2 days and 6 hours.

The shades seem to spawn based on health (75%, 50%, and 25%). For some reason, echo of shades adds spawned just when he was at approximately 17% health - I'm not sure what caused them to spawn. It is possible that the deaths of my CLR's hammer pets may have been the trigger.

Did this tonight with 3 people. Our group set up was 100 monk x2 and my shaman box. On our first attempt we made it all the way to Crush and he powered up around 20%. His hits went from 15k max to 33k max. He will power up if he is alive for around 5 mins. Second attempt we saved all of our burns for Crush and finished the raid with ease. All 3 of us were in group gear so i could see this being duoed or even soloed by a char geared good enough.

# Jul 10 2012 at 7:58 PM Rating: Decent
as many might know in 2011 this event could be done with mercs inside the instance as long as you were not in raid form .. this has since been changed and mercs can no longer be inside the instance .. just letting folks know
Strat we have used with success...

Here's how we did it:

Form raid with idea on Level 90 toons, no boxes/hydras/alts, 4 good tanks, 3+ good healers and fill rest with as much DPS as you can. (The idea of breaking into groups to use mercs is not needed this way... and there XP is shared by all and no possibility of cheat looting because most of the raid can't see if the other group looted something or not).

Kill trash around the castle to avoid adds during main fite if anyone gets tossed out the window.

Have 4 tanks -- one on each: Darish, sentry, sentinel & guard... before you start event, so they get immediate aggro.

Kill Darish last of the four.

Pre-assigned tanks will aggro Prophet and Warlord immediately, when they activate.

Kill Prophet first, due to nasty AoE (Pally splash cures help a lot).

Aggro Dvinn and focus heals on the tank. 2nd tank be ready because he has a spin stun and a stab effect that can tank out any tank very quickly. Pally splash is again useful here (blind and nasty dot...).

Have tank run up to Emperor and aggro ASAP... with heals still in progress (he will kill the Seer and oracle to power himself up, so don't worry about them).

The key now, is as follows:

1) Keep the tank up so Emperor doesn't run loose and kill the squishy types and wipe the raid. Be sure to stand up quick when he feigns you!

2) PLAYER DEATH = ADDS. Adds in addition to the 5 you will get anyway. Contrary to previous posst, I can confirm that pet deaths do not cause adds (I just did a raid where pets were used freely with no adds when they died).

3) Kill the adds (low HP) as soon as they spawn (assign an off tank to assist). Adds seems to be at 75 (Prophet shade), 52-ish (Warlord shade), 40-ish (DVinn shade) and 25-ish (Oracle and Seer shades).

4) DPS DPS DPS... burn him down as fast as you can between adds.

in order to reset this crazy azz event you need to pull emperor crush himself out of the building, eventually once hes far enough away from his event room he emotes something about leaving the raid area and that hes not as foolish as he used to be or something. but anyway yeah, to reset pull emp out of building a ways and event repops as it was before you started (despawns echos also if you can get crush out of building, otherwise the echos will summon you back trying to pull crush out)

They don't appear to have upgraded the loot obtained from before they 'fixed it'. Guess will have to petition it.

You do not have to do anything with Dvinn, to make them go active just say "audience" to Lord Darish otherwise spot on write up thank you.

Event Details

what i've learned so far besides having to look thru my logs and givening a more detailed information.

I had 11 people. 7 of whiched was boxxed... we zoned in and there was trash up yellow con at 90

everything summons.

orc elite centurion-rootable, mezzable,

orc elite legionaire-unmezzable, and sees thru rog SoS(not sure if its random or all)

i only cleared the trash to the throne room. When we reached the throne room stuff was inactive until someone hailed D'Vinn and it actived the room... it seems the event is leashed to the keep

we went in and set up on the table in the throne room it con scowls at you ready to attack but didnt agro.

we hailed the mobs, and for some reason only Lord Darish responed to the certain people (im thinking he responsed to anyone that hailed D'Vinn) but the only mob that we talked to was Lord Darish which [audience]

we said "audience" and we got rushed by Lord Darish, royal guard, royal sentinel, and royal sentry. I dont think anything got mezzed but we basically had 1 tank on Lord Darish and 1 on the adds. We kill the adds then Lord Darish. none of these mobs seemed to have any special abilities,(need to check my logs)

After killing the first wave, The Prophet and The Warlord both become active and rushed us. We ended up deciding to kill The Prophet first since The Prophet has a kinda weak AE and he does randomly charm a person. Nothing fancy about the warlord.

After killing the 2nd wave Ambassador D'Vinn will join in the fight. He has a few tricks... it seems to have a spin stun on the tank. an AE that does medium DD/Dot/blinds also he "escapes" and goes invis for about 30seconds you have to pay attention to the targeting ring because you can still dps him even though you cant see him. However, when he escapes you will notice you drop out of combat and he basically memblurs himself to drop agro.

After killing D'Vinn or if you if you have low dps you will get a video trigger saying you've waited to long and the emperor has joined the frayed (which seems to be any time (first attempt dvinn was at 20%) (we was saving our burn for the emperor on the first time) on the 2nd attempt we burned thru and emperor crush didnt agro till d'vinn was dead. When the Emperor becomes Active he kills royal oracle and royal seer and comes alone by hisself. However it seems the longer hes active the more powerful he becomes. at first he was only hitting a max of 16981 (90 clr max def aas t4 geared). however, when someone dies he spawns an add called an echo of shade they hit for like 1531 max mainly 500-600ish hits the adds summon at 100% health. Also we notice the event doesnt reset if a rogue escaped (im not sure about feign deaths or bard fade) so if you wipe and want to retry you have to make sure everyone is out of zone or get a new dz.
