This is a raid event in the expedition into Arx Mentis.


- Praetor Vitio is in a top floor room, leashed to the room in which he is found (if leashed, warps to his spawn point and summons his target).

- He has several emote-based attacks and tricks.
--- The main tank is excepted from all emotes except for the "tank switch" emote.
--- In each case, there are nine seconds between emote and occurrence.
--- If you're standing in a location where you'll be hit, you will have the spell "Line of Fire" on you.
--- The first time a player fails to follow an emote, they are hit with the penalty spell.
--- The second time a player fails to follow an emote, they are banished from the zone and locked out until the event is over.

Praetor Vitio holds the hammer in his left hand high overhead!
--- 180-degree AE ("Vitio's Hammer Strike") on his left side.

Praetor Vitio holds the sword in his right hand high overhead!
--- 180-degree AE ("Vitio's Blade Swing") on his right side.
------ If cured, it applies itself to the curer.

Praetor Vitio holds both of his weapons out to his sides!
--- PBAE 50' range AE "Vitio's Rampage".

Praetor Vitio begins to focus the power of the citadel!
--- Reverse PBAE 25' range AE "Aura of the Citadel" (must be within 25' range of Praetor Vitio to avoid it).
------ If cured, it applies itself to the curer.

Praetor Vitio takes note of the invaders standing behind him!
--- 180-degree rear AE "Vitio's Backswing".
------ If cured, it applies itself to the curer.

Praetor Vitio prepares to strike _____ with a killing blow! Someone else should take his attention.
--- Must change targets before the nine seconds runs out, otherwise the target is death touched with "Vitio's Killing Blow".
