Rain of Fear Information & Guides: An Overview | Group Progression & Task List | Raid Progression | Visible Armor

This is a group mission that begins with Kela Lor Telaris (findable with CTRL+F) who is found in the far southeastern part of the palace (head up inside tree - he is in the first room).

For a visual of how to safely get to this area, see the image on this NPC entry.

- Level 85
- Completion of "The Goddess, the Shard, and the Diabo"
- Completion of "Aten's Wrath"
- Completion of "Dial L for Luclin"

You say, 'Hail, Kela Lor Telaris'

Kela Lor Telaris says 'We must find a way to break the seal on Luclin's Chamber before Diabo Va Xin Vellis can get to the shard! Your assistance thus far has been very helpful. I would like you to [accompany] me on this mission.'

You say, 'We will accompany you'

Kela Lor Telaris says 'Excellent. I will be glad to have you with me. Let me know when you are ready to [depart], but prepare quickly. We have no time to waste.'

You have been assigned the task 'Breaking the Seal'.

You have agreed to accompany Kela Lor Telaris in his attempt to break the seal on Luclin's chamber.

You say, 'Let's depart'

Kela Lor Telaris says 'Let us be off.'

You have entered Plane of Shadow.

Speak with Kela Lor Telaris 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

You say, 'Hail, Kela Lor Telaris'

Kela Lor Telaris says 'Our first step should be to investigate the sealed doors more thoroughly and see if we can determine what type of magic is sealing them. Wait, did you hear something?'

Kela Lor Telaris says 'Over there on the stairs! Don't let him report back!'

This triggers the spawn of "a corrupted akhevan scout" on the stairs to the east.

Try to kill the corrupted akhevan scout before he reports back 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

You can either kill the scout or let him run off on his own (the step will update either way). If you kill it, the step simply updates:

a corrupted Akhevan scout has been slain by _____!
a corrupted Akhevan scout's corpse still clutches its sword.

If you let it go, you'll eventually see this, updating the step (Xundraux Xakra kills the scout):

Xundraux Xakra shouts 'Fool! You led them right to me!'

Kill Xundraux Xakra 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Xundraux Xakra (map) casts "Deathly Poison" (DOT for 50,000/tick) on a random target every 25 seconds (viral to anyone in 40' range).

Deathly Poison: Single Target, Disease (-960)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 50000 per tick
2: Decrease Endurance by 4000 per tick
3: Increase Poison Counter by 90

Xundraux Xakra has been slain by _____!
Xundraux Xakra's corpse lets out a deep sigh.

Search Xundraux Xakra for anything useful 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Loot a "Triangulation Shard Gamma" from its corpse.

Give triangulation shard gamma to Kela Lor Telaris 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

You hear the sound of furniture being knocked over in the room down the hall.

Kela Lor Telaris says 'Interesting, a triangulation crystal. They must be using a sealing crystal to lock these doors. If we can get the other two crystals, we will be able to locate the sealing crystal and destroy it. We should probably search outside the other two entrances to Luclin's chamber.'

This spawns Zel Kaxri and Volx Xi Xakra (map), as well as Kaas Thox. (Kaas Thox is an optional kill, but killing it will generate an extra item in your loot chest.)

Kill Zel Kaxri 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Zel Kaxri casts "Repel" (with knockback) on a random target every 20 seconds.

Repel: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 40000

Zel Kaxri has been slain by _____!
Zel Kaxri's corpse's face seems peaceful now.

Search Zel Kaxri for a triangulation shard 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Loot "Triangulation Shard Delta" from its corpse.

Give triangulation shard delta to Kela Lor Telaris 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Kela Lor Telaris says 'Only one more to go.'

Kill Volx Xi Xakra 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Every 30 seconds, Volx Xi Xakra buffs itself with "Power of Fear". Dispell this quickly because it AEs "Shards of Fear" if it fades naturally.

Volx Xi Xakra has been slain by _____!
Volx Xi Xakra's corpse lies flat on the ground.

Search Volx Xi Xakra for a triangulation shard 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Loot "Triangulation Shard Epsilon" from its corpse.

Give triangulation shard epsilon to Kela Lor Telaris 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Kela Lor Telaris says 'Now that we have all three, I can lead us to the location of the Sealing Crystal. Follow me!'

Follow Kela Lor Telaris to the Sealing Crystal 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Destroy the Sealing Crystal 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

NOTE: The task locks upon the Sealing Crystal's destruction.

This is located in the northwestern part of the palace (map).

Here, you will get adds called "a crystal shard" here. These are kiteable and should be range DPS'd (large damage aura on them). Kill the crystal to unlock the doors to Luclin's chamber.

Emotes you'll see here:

A shard of the sealing crystal breaks off. ("a crystal shard" spawns and targets someone else.)

You are being pursued by a crystal shard. Don't let it get close! ("a crystal shard" spawns and targets you.)

As the Sealing Crystal is destroyed, you see:

The sealing crystal falls to pieces.

A keening wail suddenly fills the air of the chamber, only to trail off moments later.

This also spawns Kela Va and The Dark Lady (map). (The Dark Lady is an optional kill, but killing her will generate an extra item in your loot chest.)

Optional Kills:

Kaas Thox hits for a max ~19,500 and spawns adds at 80%, 70%, 50%, and 20% (two per wave). These adds each have a melee slow aura (Sticky Tendrils) and cast a spell on random targets that flings the target to their location.

Kaas Thox has been slain by _____!
Kaas Thox's corpse evaporates into a fetid mist.

The Dark Lady hits for a max ~19,500 and casts the emote-based "Gaze of Shadows" occurring at specific health intervals: 80%, 70%, 50%, and 20% (turn away from her when you see it).

The Dark Lady turns her gaze upon you! You think it would be wise to avoid looking at her.

The Dark Lady turns her gaze away fro you.

The Dark Lady has been slain by _____!
The Dark Lady's corpse collapses.

Enter Luclin's chamber 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Diabo Va Xin Vellis shouts 'How resourceful of you to have broken my seal. If I was not otherwise occupied, I would destroy you myself. Kela Va will see to you in my place.'

Defeat Kela Va 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

Kela Va will hit the tank with "Grim Siphon" (single-target nuke for 40,000) which also increases her mana, which, when it hits 100%, causes her to AE "Fearful Blast" (AE nuke for 66,666).

Kela Va has been slain by _____!
As Kela Va falls to the ground, a small chest tumbles to the ground beneath her.

Claim your reward from Kela Va's Strongbox 0/1 (Plane of Shadow)

You helped Kela Lor Telaris break the seal on Luclin's chamber so you could confront Diabo Va Xin Vellis and recover the large fear shard.

Experience (4 AAs + 3-4% regular exp at Level 100)
300 platinum

Possible Chest Loot (1 Dreadmote + 1-3 Items Per Task):

Bestial Shoulderpads
Cloak of the North
Dulled Shissar Ulak

  • The Sealing Crystal is permarooted and does not summon.
  • The "a crystal shard" mobs cannot be snared or rooted but move at snare speed naturally and can be flung with the ranger Blusterbolt and bard Displacement lines.
  • Both the crystal shards and Sealing Crystal can be memblurred if you wipe and need to start that stage over.
  • The crystal shards despawn if you do this. Interestingly the crystal shards and Sealing Crystal do not assist/reagro each other.

The easiest approach is to do this event with a single player with ranged DPS. Simply run around the room clockwise and use ranged DPS (dots, DDs, bow etc). This avoids the issue of crystal shards each picking random players to hunt. By the end you will have multiple crystal shards up but as they walk slowly they will be bunched up. On the death of Sealing Crystal they all despawn.

For the Sealing Crystal part of task i would recommend that you get up as many Wizard mercs as you can, set them to burn, and have the person that gets the agro from a crystal shard kite the mob around the Wizard mercs. Mercs will not take damage from the damage aura that these mobs have.

just burn all mob until shard. on sealing crystal send pet on it and kite add (if you want 5 shard achievment) or just kill them ... most group named are much harder that the one in this fight. We used invi to move through the zone... the hardest part by far is to find the named to kill ;) (this zone is a huge maze ).
Btw this task is a good way to learn the zone as no mobs see invi (except the tasks named) unlike the normal PoS.

After you hand in the first triangulation shard to get the 5th update of the task, a named will spawn in the center small room stemming off the large room directly north of Kela Lor Telaris (Where there would normally be akhevan mercenaries and corrupted akhevans fighting each other amongst a ton of non-kos scavenging pools of darkness in the static zone).

His name is Kaas Thox. He spawns add periodically that cast the spell "Sticky Tendrils" on a single random target. This effect will pull the target to the add via a Call Hither type gflux pull effect. Levi does NOT negate it. He spawns the adds two at a time. Does not seem to be hp based, if it is it may be maybe every 15-20%ish but seems mostly random. He himself is red at level 100, the adds con white. This named is TERRIBLE for pet tanking.

Furthermore, after killing the Sealing Crystal, another named called The Dark Lady will spawn on the middle floor of the massive 3 floor room you fought the crystal in (next floor UP from where you fought the crystal. You'll likely run into her on your way to Luclin's Chambers anyway). She cons red to 100. She paths continuously without stopping in a circle around that floor. She has the same ability as the named (of the same name) in the static zone. Which is an emote that hints you may not wanna face her. If you were the target of the emote and continue to face her she will fear you. The fear supposedly is unaffected by Fearless but I have not tested this. Having all players permanently facing away from her turns her into a literally tank and spank. Meaning it's perfect to pet tank this named.

Killing either one of these named will add a second loot item to the chest at the end of the mission. Killing BOTH will result in a second AND third item in the chest at the end of the mission. Meaning the mission has a maximum of 4 items (3 items, 1 spell gem) and minimum of 2 (one item, one spell gem) depending upon the special optional nameds you defeat each run. Unlike the first mission in Chelsith Reborn these named are NOT marked as optional steps on the task.

Lastly, killing the corrupted Akhevan scout before he reach's Luclin's chambers gets you an optional conquest achievement called "Giving Chase". Killing the Sealing Crystal with at least 5 of the Crystal Shard spawns up will net you the Conquest achievement "Shard Mode". Killing the Sealing Crystal without ANYONE being hit by any of the Crystal Shard's aura's will net you the last Conquest achievement called "Crystal Dodger".

The Sealing Crystal does not attack back. And the shard's do not attack pets or affect them with auras. Thus this is, once again, the perfect spot for pets. Run in a circle without stopping kiting the Shard's while pets beat on the Sealing Crystal. You'll easily net both Conquest achievements and no damage taken. May take a bit though to kill the Sealing Crystal.
