The Event

(Event details needed: Names of mobs and any items involved; emotes; mechanics; instanced zones, if any.)

  • Explore the Stage of Baladric's Symphony 0/1 (Dreadlands)

    Baldric Slezaf says, 'A most gracious welcome to you _________! How quickly the days have passed since our last exchange. You're just in time. Today is the day we bring the Maestro's symphony to life! Come quickly, the band is due to arrive...'

    A familiar hum emanates from the surrounding spires. It sounds as if the band has chosen an arcane mode of travel...

    Baldric Slezaf says, 'I thank you all for being here today. We are blessed with the presence of Norrath's greatest virtuosos, I'm quite sure you all know _________. Most importantly, may the gods themselves be in awe of what will occur this day. This one's for you Ayonae...'

    Baldric Slezaf nods and looks out over his orchestra as the musicians begin focusing intently on the grand task at hand. Baldric looks at you intently, a silent but understood agreement that your performance will be vital in the success of this gathering!

    (The instruments he will ask you to equip are random, the order below is to show which message to which instrument.)
    Take note that instrument foci on your armor does NOT count for this. you MUST use actual instruments for this section.

    Baldric signals to you. The band needs more Strings! (use stringed instrument)
    Baldric signals to you. The band needs more Woodwind!(use wind instrument)
    Baldric signals to you. The band needs more Percussion!(Use percussion instrument)
    Baldric signals to you. The band needs more Brass!(use brass instrument)

    Upon a successful instrument call, you will see:
    Baldric nods approvingly.

    Baldric Slezaf says, 'Absolutely incredible, such beauty has no rival in the whole of history. I thank you personally for your help and insist you stay and listen to the second movement.'

    Baldric Slezaf pauses and looks over the members of the orchestra before beginning the next movement. You feel compelled to stay and listen.

    The slow solemn beauty of the orchestra's piece is broken by a deafening screech! The once serene sound quickly cuts into a focused dissonance! A wrathful creature swoops down from the sky.

    Blackwings shouts, 'Disgusting creatures! The Ring of Scale has tolerated your existence for far too long!'
    The performers remain stoic, entranced in the symphony. You are on your own to deal with this interference.

    Targeted (NPC): Blackwings
    Right click on the NPC to consider it.
    Blackwings scowls at you, ready to attack -- looks like it would wipe the floor with you! (Lvl: 75)
    This creature looks relatively weak.
    The mighty beast laughs at you, 'Foolish bard, the only weapon that can pierce my scales entails an enchantment more annoying than YOUR incessant singing!'
    (this refers to your epic 1.0. Equip it and continue to fight Blackwings, you'll eventually do massive damage with it on him).
    Blackwings Screeches violently as your epic blade pierces its scales!
    You have slain Blackwings!

    Baldric Slezaf gasps as his focus returns to reality. Baldric looks at _________ in awe.
    Baldric Slezaf says, 'Not only do I owe you my masterpiece, but also my life friend. Let no mortal or god be unaware of how a masterful virtuoso stands before us today. I can only hope anything in my life can rival the magnitude of what transpired here on this day.'
