This part of Gates of Discord progression follows your completion of the Temple of the Damned quest (note that some elements of Kod'Taz progression can be completed outside of the order outlined here, which is but one path you can take).



Rumors of an Invasion

After finishing the "Martyrs Passage" and "Temple of the Damned" quests:

You say, 'Hail, Kevren Nalavat'

Kevren Nalavat says 'Welcome back, _____. I've studied the glyph as much as I can for now. In addition to what we uncovered with the translated glyph, we've received word that the rumors of a dark summoning are indeed true. The truth of these rumors is no surprise to me at all with all that we've uncovered thus far. The Legion of Mata Muram is evil indeed. Are you here about those [rumors], or are you looking for some [other tasks]? I have a moment if you want to talk a bit [more] about me. You're also more than welcome to attempt the trials again. If so, just let me know you're [ready to test] again and we'll proceed down that path. What'll it be, _____?'

You say, 'What rumors?'

Kevren Nalavat says 'It looks as though the invaders are planning on bringing beasts into this world by means of a collective summoning. We're unsure if they're even able to do this, but we do know that they cannot be allowed the chance to succeed. You are charged with finding the Muramites attempting this summoning and putting a stop to them at once! Is this something you [think you can do]?'

You say, 'I think I can do it'

Kevren Nalavat says 'I hoped as much. What I ask of you now won't be easy. You must gather a raiding force several times the size of your normal party. We fear that only sufficient force will be enough to stop this threat. Once you have your party in tow, make your way to the summoning circle, and vanquish the threat of the evil legion priests before they bring their minions into this realm. I have one [final warning] for you before you go.'

You say, 'What final warning?'

Kevren Nalavat says 'I am unsure of the Muramites' timing. It is possible that I have heard incorrectly and that the summoning force may not be there at this time. Do not take this to mean that I was wrong! The force will be there, but it may take them a few more hours to assemble. Be patient. They will arrive. Lastly, the rumors have stated that these legion priests will be using some special artifacts they have collected. We do not know what these artifacts are, but you must return one of these artifacts to me when you have finished so that we can examine it. Good luck, _____, I fear you may need it.'







The Summoner Ring

The Summoner Ring is located due west of the Temple of the Damned. Don't get too close to it until you're ready to engage the event. You'll have to stay within the circle. If mobs are pulled outside it, they regenerate to 100% every tick.

In the circle are 10 mobs: 1x "Pixtt Grand Summoner" + 9x "Pixtt Priest Summoner". When ready for the encounter, enter the circle.

Summary:

- Kill all 9x "Pixtt Priest Summoner" (perma-rooted; summon when damaged).
--- Some come with pre-spawned pets (just kill these).
--- As you're killing these, mobs called "Rav Priest Guardian" rush your raid (up to 3 at a time).

- Upon the death of the last Pixtt Priest Summoner, 6 golems spawn and aggro the raid.
- 3x "Deranged Greater Stoneservant" + 3x "Deranged Lesser Stoneservant".
- Golems are a mixture of blue and grey in color.
- Upon each golem death, the health of the Grand Summoner lowers a bit.
- Golems instantly respawn upon their deaths, up until the Summoner reaches 10%. Once at 10%, kill off remaining golems.
- If you're having a problem where golems keep respawning even though the Summoner is already at 10% health, try this kill priority:
--- Kill blue "greater" golems first.
--- Kill blue "lesser" golems second.
--- Kill grey "greater" golems third.
--- Kill grey "lesser" golems last.

- Upon the death of the last Stoneservant, "Pixtt Grand Summoner" goes aggro.
--- As it is now at 10% health, it immediately summons (is perma-rooted).

- Upon the death of the Pixtt Grand Summoner, you get 1x "Hexxt Chaos Provoker"
--- This mob has significant damage output and about 350,000 hps.

- Upon the death of the Hexxt Chaos Provoker, you get 6x "Deranged Supreme Stoneservant".

- Kill the six supreme golems to complete the event.

- The Hexxt Chaos Provoker and Pixtt Grand Summoner each drop two pieces of stat loot.
- Each Supreme Stoneservant drops 6x "Grand Summoner's Glyph" (progression turn-in item).

If I recall, he's been having some troubles with something in the [Pit of the Lost] as well as something to do with the [Crumbled Sanctuary] of the Divine.

For those whose grand summoner isnt up - just get a deranged supreme stoneservant to spawn, kill it, loot the glyph, run away and turn it in.

27 golems up. Im trying to kill them in the correct order as stated above - blue greater, blue lesser, grey greater, grey lesser. I got all blue greater and blue lesser dead so I start in on grey greater. But they start respawning as blue again. Im guessing it is broken until server reset?
so broken

So I did this solo today as an 86 ranger roughly 6200 AA's on the Nameless Server. I cleared the trash mobs around the ring. Aggro'd all the pet's and killed them. You'll get random mobs sent after you try to med up so just kill them. After you clear all the summoners the Golems will start spawning non-stop. I just pulled them in all in the middle and kept them off my Journeyman Tier 1 merc. I AE'd the entire time until they stopped coming. Upon the last golem spawn I got summoned to the Grand Summoner. Kill him and kill the next few mobs and the event ends with a crapload of Grand Summoners Glyph's. I tried this before with a apprentice healer Merc with a really bad wipe so the paid subscription with a Journeyman Merc really made a difference. I hope this helps!
Buggy? No, its a featured sick developer brain ;)

It seems the event like many events (e.g. PoAir Time Trials) have the problem, if you kill the mobs with too much firepower and they have to lock for a certain order, the key mob is killed before the other mobs necessary to end the event have been killed. This is surely not a way how things should "work as intended" because then the intention is a "stupid developers script BS...", but it seems the players have to live with that.
Try a specific order (like above said), don't kill the main mobs with a 150k nuke or try to "rain" with AEs through the event. Killed countless golems with that method, no chance. But a nice way to get your toons up with that respawn timer if they are not eaten alive at lvl65 ;)
Bugged?

Same issue keeps happening with me. Golems keep coming no matter what you do, or in what order, or at what stage. I have tried this on four toons without much luck. So what is the secret here to complete this task?

Can someone explain how to complete this event without getting the golems to insta respawn after each kill? I killed the named and the Supreme Golems but their corpses just vanish and these greater and lesser stone golems keep respawning. I tries killing them greater the lesser, etc, but to no avail...

Just trying to get the progression item for BIC but instead each time i go into the ring the golems just keep respawning.

So I petitioned a while back and they say the event was working as intended. Need to kill them in a certain order. I was able to win by slowing down on the event. used a lesser weapon.
