Summary

- "a frightened slave"
--- After some script emotes, the frightened slave becomes attackable.
------ She is not KOS, and she can be left alive. Doing so will grant you an achievement for the raid, but will increase the strength of remaining kill targets in the event.
------ If you leave her alive, you will see some additional emotes, and then Slave Driver Sedros spawns.
--- During this phase, she "fights" or "flees" (see the above section).
--- You have crowd DPS emotes to follow.
--- Each emote failure powers up the frightened slave.

--- Sedros has a random 40' range targeted AE "Fling".

--- You have tank change emotes to follow.
--- Each emote failure powers up Kilsev the Brute and spawns two oozes in random locations (oozes have DOT+snare aura).

--- Anyone outside 50' range of Vyzh`dra will receive a nuke for ~50,000 + fling to his location.
--- Every 55 seconds, emotes about drawing energy from the crowd
------ At this time, he becomes rooted in place (does not summon) and he doesn't do his "fling" ability.
------ Back far away from him until the AE goes off.

Event Trigger

Once your raid is ready, enter the arena:

Vyzh`dra gestures to the eager audience upon your arrival, 'My fellow Shissar, the moment you have been waiting for is upon us. Please draw your attention to the center of the arena where a group of challengers will be fighting until the death for your entertainment.'

Vyzh`dra continues, 'I encourage each and every one of you to do more than just sit in the stands. Shout for your favorite champion, applaud carniage and bloodshead, Your cheers and jeers will decide how this battle plays out.'

Vyzh`dra concludes, 'Without further ado, I present the first fight: our group of challengers against a high elf slave. Let the game's begin.'



The Frightened Slave

You can either kill the slave, or spare her life; however, if you spare her, the remaining encounters will be more difficult.

a frightened slave sobs, 'I don't want to die.'

a frightened slave pleads with tears in her eyes, 'Please don't make me fight!'

The slave hits for a max ~38,000 and rarely AE rampages (no single-target rampage or flurry). During the fight, she emotes about either fighting or fleeing. Shortly after this emote, either she will stay in place and put a damage shield on herself ("Courage"), or she will flee to a different part of the arena (mem blurring herself in the process):

Courage: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
1: Increase ATK by 2000
2: Increase AC by 600
3: Increase Attack Speed by 100%
4: Increase Damage Shield by 2500

Kill the frightened slave to spawn the next named.

Note: If you leave the slave alive, you will soon see this emote, signaling the spawn of the next named.

Vyzh`dra shouts from his seat overlooking the arena, 'Enough of this pacifism! If you won't spill the blood of an elf slave, then your blood will be spilled instead! Sedros, prepare for battle!'



Slave Driver Sedros

Slave Driver Sedros enters the arena, followed very shortly after by 4x "a slave".

The slaves hit for a max ~38,000, and are mezzable.

Slave Driver Sedros hits for a max ~40,000; single-target rampages; AE rampages; and flurries. He casts "Whip" (random targeted AE fling to his location) and "Enslave" (random single-target charm):

Whip: Targeted AE 40', Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 55000
2: Pull target towards caster (4)

Enslave: Single Target, Unresistable (-950)
1: Charm up to level 200

If you fail an emote during this fight, Sedros powers up and an additional slave spawns.

Kill Sedros to spawn the next named.



Kilsev the Brute

Kilsev doesn't come with any adds. He hits for a max ~40,000; single-target rampages; and AE rampages (no flurry). During this fight, he'll emote about focusing his rage on a random target in the raid. After a short delay, he gains a short-term frontal damage aura, "Rage":

Rage: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 49000
2: Stun (2.00 sec)

Whoever gets the "rage" emote should kite him around for about 10 seconds to avoid damage.

Failure to follow crowd emotes during this fight causes Kilsev to power up. Also, 2x "pile of waste" (untargetable, immobile oozes) spawn in random locations and act as damage auras to anyone who steps on them:

Toxicity: Single Target, Disease (0)
1: Decrease Movement by 100%
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 44000 per tick (3 ticks)
3: Increase Disease Counter by 80

Kill Kilsev to spawn the final named.



Vyzh`dra the Godslayer

Vyzh`dra comes with 4x "a tiger" adds.

Failure to follow crowd emotes during this fight powers up Vyzh`dra and spawns 1x "a tiger".

The tigers hit for a max ~39,000, and are mezzable.

Vyzh`dra hits for a max ~43,000; single-target rampages; AE rampages; and flurries. During this fight, you will want to stand within 50' range of Vyzh`dra, otherwise you get hit with "Call Forth the Coward" (a nuke+fling to his location, an automatic cast on anyone outside 50' range of him):

Call Forth the Coward: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Pull target towards caster (4)
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 77000

During the fight, he emotes about drawing energy from the crowd. When this emote goes off, Vyzh`dra becomes permanently rooted and stops summoning. Everyone should back far away from him until he casts his AE (the closer you are to him when the AE goes off, the more damage you take). If you're near him, you take about 100,000 dmg. If a short distance away, you take about 65,000 dmg. If you're in the outer range of the AE's 150' range, you take 35,000 dmg. If you're outside 150' range of Vyzh`dra, you take no damage.

Once the above AE goes off, you have only a few seconds to get back within 50' range to avoid the "Coward" punishment effect.

Kill Vyzh`dra to complete the raid.

Vyzh`dra the Godslayer has been slain by _____!

A hush falls over the crowd as Vyzh`dra is hit with a fatal blow. While his lifeless body crashes to the ground, the spectators rise from their seats and rush the arena, cheering for their new champions!
