This is one of three mini raid events in the Heart of Fear.

This event is found inside the first Heart of Fear raid expedition (same zone as "Glimpse, the Unseen" in the Threshold).

Darkness grows overtime, blinding those around it. Light, ever so brief, may be the only way to combat the Darkness.

Note: You must kill all Alaran trash mobs in the zone before engaging Darkness. Any Alarans left alive at the time you engage Darkness will rush to his aid.

While fighting Darkness, mobs called "a glimmer of light" spawn in waves (five mobs per wave). These mobs drop an item called "Lightstone".

Darkness has an aura called "Darkness" which expands as the event goes on (health-based growth, eventually covering the entire fight area by around 30% health):

Darkness: Single Target, Unresistable (-980)
1: Blindness (1)
2: Silence
3: Amnesia (Silence vs Melee Effect)
4: Decrease Attack Speed by 99%

This is a permanent effect. The only way to cure it is via one of the "Lightstone" items from the event's adds. Clicking one of these items will cure yourself and 11 random players around you.

Darkness also casts the random targeted AE "Chill" which can lead to "Shiver":

Chill: Targeted AE 30', Unresistable (-980)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 60000
2: 50% Chance to trigger: Shiver
3: Stun (2.00 sec/200)

Shiver: Single Target, Cold (-980)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 45000 per tick
2: Decrease Movement by 100%

Kill Darkness to complete the event.


NOTE: As this is only a mini raid event, this raid does not award currency. However, after you beat this raid, its loot becomes available on the Tier 4 raid vendor, Crusader Tolsk, in Shard's Landing (bought using Dreadstones from the three Heart of Fear progression raid events).

Chest loot consists of 1-2 non visible items (first list) + 4 spell runes (second list):

Burden of Truth (very rare)
Darkness' Chill
Key of Memory
Sliver of Darkness
Swirling Orb of Obscurity

Minor Terrormote
Lesser Terrormote
Median Terrormote
Greater Terrormote
Glowing Terrormote
