Heroic II

  • 7035 Resolve for H2
  • Can pay 500 plat for 'challenge' mode... 7445 resolve, prolly diff strat, I splatted
  • Make sure nobody is dispelling randomly, Absorb Magic/Clicky dispels/etc should NOT be used until required.

Adds spawn fairly quickly throughout the fight (a bilge rat) - They give a stacking buff to the named, a wipe if 10 are up.

Throughout the fight the named spawns a tic tac toe board on the ground, move the group/named into the spot where X can 'win' and dispel the named - This repeats multiple times throughout the fight (every 20%?)

Heroic II (Challenge)

  • 7445 Resolve

Grimalda Goodhand

  • Roams around /waypoint -210.06 -0.47 -51.67

Heroic II

  • Can pay 1000 plat for 'challenge' mode. Didn't attempt;

Spawns adds throughout the fight (an armless one). If more than 10 are up, it's a wipe.

Will announce "Ms. Goodhand prepares to dump her useless wares on someone!/multiple someones!" - This creates an item 'vendor trash' in the inventory of one or more people, if not destroyed fairly quickly (10 seconds?) they die, repeats throughout the fight.

Heroic II (Challenge)

  • 7455 Resolve
  • Strat Details

Gelda Glintswift

  • Located around /waypoint -245.55 0.11 -46.35

Heroic II

  • Can pay 1500p for 'challenge' mode. Didn't attempt;
  • Same as the first named, don't dispel blindly, as many will be required throughout the fight.
  • Interrupt "Foreign Aid" in order to prevent healing of adds/potential spawning of additional adds.

Adds spawn throughout the fight as humanoid models, stand still for a few seconds then transform into werewolves. While in werewolf form they take 90% less damage, dodge 70% of attacks, and do increased damage. Dispelling them will revert them back to humanoid and you can easily kill them as they spawn.

Every 20% a lot of bubbles spawn around the room you are fighting in, a character needs to run up and click all of them. Once all are clicked, dispel the named and it will start taking damage again.


Heroic II (Challenge)

  • 7455 Resolve
  • Strat Details

Elder Furdock

  • Located at /waypoint X Y Z

Heroic II

  • Can pay 2000p for 'challenge' mode. Didn't attempt;

Casts a debuff 'Bill of Lading' - If cured at once stack, it will immediately reapply, healers should just cast a group cure every 20-30 seconds. Spawns adds 'a stitched henchman' - Likely a failure condition if 10 are up, but they die quickly to AE damage.

Heroic II (Challenge)

  • Strat Details

Liegess Lavalle

  • Located at /waypoint -281.59 -4.44 46.86

Heroic II

  • Can pay 2500p for 'challenge' mode. Didn't attempt;

Adds named "a bloodthirsty colony" spawn as part of the fights mechanics, they have low health, but if you ignore switches they spawn very quickly, and too many up will result in a wipe. On each of the three walls in the room, at certain points a symbol will appear on a wall, a character needs to click the matching switch in order to stop adds from spawning.

Throughout the fight, Liegess will cast one of two debuffs on a character, along with announcing either "Get in!" or "Get out!" - inspecting the buff shows whether you have the in/out variant. If in, wait until you are on top of the named to be cured, if out, move 10ish meters away before getting cured.


Heroic II (Challenge)

  • Strat Details

Beefcake

  • Located at /waypoint -241.40 0.62 57.35

Heroic II

  • Can pay 3000p for 'challenge' mode. Didn't attempt;

Beefcake gains stacks throughout the fight that can be removed by completing HOs. It doesn't matter which class starts or finishes, as long as HOs are happening.

At certain points, Beefcake will select a character to use a chew toy, ensure that healing priority is placed on the called out char, as letting them die will result in bad things (wipe? or just multiple deaths, not sure)

Additionally, named will call out "Charname's damage must be intercepted to transfer Death's Head to be cured!" - A fighter needs to cast Intercept on the called out character in order to prevent that characters death (and likely more deaths, who knows).

Heroic II (Challenge)

  • Strat Details

Arachlord Dyrraga

  • Located at /waypoint -236.55 -5.01 108.25

Heroic II

  • Can pay 3500p for 'challenge' mode. Didn't attempt;

Adds spawn throughout the fight that buff the named while alive. High DPS groups can ignore the adds and just get em with AEs.

"a silk thread" add spawns when a debuff is placed on a char, if ignored (spawns away from named) it will eventually kill the char when timer on debuff expires. In this fight, you don't want any 'random' deaths, so ensure you kill the thread asap.

Shortly into fight casts a curse on everyone. Curing it allows cure curse to be immediately recast, except for the last person. This repeats throughout the fight (seems time based - some pulls would get it every 'wave' other pulls would only ever get it once) So you will either need to wait for a refresh or let the user die to clear curse to prevent causing wipes in the next phase;

At multiple intervals (75ish, 50ish, 22ish health) the named will teleport away, and adds will spawn. The first teleport is 30 seconds, 45 for the second, and 60 seconds for the final. During this period ANY deaths will result in an instant wipe, so ensure that you are waiting out the Curse, and making sure "a silk thread" is dead before these phases start. The adds all have a stacking buff that increases incoming damage by 2% per increment. Low DPS groups may need to save temps/etc for later phases when duration of add spawns is increased.
