Thread for Land of the Dead info and experiences! Our official LotD wikibase page is ready for updating. Feel free to edit in whatever you discover yourself, or post it here and we'll work it in.

Currently working on the first boss of Tomb of the Stars. He's giving us a lot of trouble. Anybody got any tips?

Let the slaughter begin!

Got Tomb of the Stars, after a few wipes.

Antili, the tank I ran with posted the following guide after our success:

Group:

Coldie (40 WP)
Selvri (40 WP)
Brunilda (39 RP)
Antili (40 IB)
Airia (40 WL)
Barli (40 SL)



After six wipes, we managed to down Tsekani Heyafa, the boss of the Tomb of the Stars. The loot from this boss consisted of this:

[img=133265]

...as well as as +8% dodge talisman (8 hours). Everyone in the group also received a "silver ankh", which can be broken down into five gold scarabs.

The tomb has no lockout, but resets its corresponding glyphs, meaning that you have to go complete the necessary PQ's to return.


As I'm sure everyone has been waiting for, here are the intricacies of the boss fight.

Upon pulling the lever to open the first door of the lair, a "deadly swarm" will spawn at the entrance, which does massive damage to anything it touches. The entire party must run down the ramps and into the main room of the lair to avoid this swarm. At this point, the boss can be seen. It should be noted that damage is randomly done to one or more players at a time (about every half second) while inside this lair - noted in the combat log as "Something's attack hits you for (#)". This damage cannot be stopped, but can be mitigated with armor and toughness to a manageable level.

During the boss fight, Tsekani Heyafa will toss a debuff on random players which does damage and should be removed asap. The boss will also spawn scarab swarms, which HEAL the boss for all damage that they deal. These must be killed on sight.

After a little while of tanking and spanking, the boss will bring the death swarm from earlier into the room. The swarm will target a specific player and slowly move towards them. Our group was able to take down the boss by pulling to the other side of the room when this swarm approached.

It should also be noted that after a certain amount of time, the boss will enrage and start hitting for upwards of 20K damage. This is the main reason why the scarab healers must be killed immediately.

Lesser wards were required for the fight.

Hopefully this information will help other adventurers entering the Land of the Dead.
