|Say lend a hand to Lashun Novashine to trigger the expedition.
Wither and Decay stand together at the end of the pit. They are non-aggro at first.
Wither casts Withering Physicality on his primary aggro target every 10 seconds, which increases the amount of damage taken. If that target already has Withering Physicality, then its rank advances, causing that person to take even more damage.
Wither tells you, 'Wither will splinter and brittle your bones! I'll laugh in pure joy at the sound of your groans!'
Your bones are brittle.
Wither casts Withering Limbs on eight nearby players every 15 seconds, which reduces the amount of damage dealt with melee and spells. If the player already has Withering Limbs, then its rank advances, further reducing damage dealt.
Wither says 'Wither spies eight little piggies nearby. Little piggies' limbs will atrophy!'
Your muscles atrophy.
Wither also casts Withering Life, a DD nuke with a lingering DoT. Unsure of the targeting or number of people affected by this. Only the highest ranks of this are really dangerous.
Wither says 'Off in the distance, Wither spies innocent youths. Age will take you early, young fools.'
You age prematurely.
Decay summons a small ooze called "living vomit" every 30 seconds. The ooze targets a specific player and will chase them for 10 seconds, until they get stuck on terrain, or until the ooze catches its target. The ooze then grows to a massive size and pulses damage once per second, rapidly melting anybody in its presence, until it despawns. The damage is environmental in nature, there is no spell cast by the ooze.
Decay spews a pile of living vomit in Yourname's direction.
Killing the correct boss, "Fearing the Next Transition," results in some number of Withering debuff ranks being cured. For example, Withering Physicality 6 can be reduced to Withering Physicality 1. Killing the wrong boss, "Prepared to Die," does not cure any ranks of Withering debuffs.
You have 20 minutes to complete the event before Wither and Decay become enraged. While enraged, the spawn rate of living vomits and ramp-up rate for Withering debuffs are dramatically increased.
Once both are under 50% HP, one becomes "Wither/Decay, Prepared to Die" while the other becomes "Wither/Decay, Fearing the Next Transition".
When Wither or Decay dies, he respawns almost instantly. They both must be killed a number of times before they finally die for good.
Whomever gets the "Fearing the Next Transition" title, must be killed 5 times. Be careful though, as whomever has the "Ready to Die" title takes Quadruple damage from all sources, and thus is far easier to kill accidentally.
On success, "a blighted chest" spawns with all the shiny loot inside, and each player earns 10 Bifurcated Coins.
