This sliver takes place in an alternate past, at the moment that the Eth High Priest Arakhurn
and his acolytes first opened the Planar Gate at Passage of the Ancients
. In this timeline there was an unforseen complication... forces of The Wanton
had sabotaged the Planar Gate and, instead of opening to the Earth Plane of the Titans it opened on the Plane of Fire.
The Ethians are consumed by the flames and High Priest Arakhurn is transformed and reborn as the Phoenix!
The portal into this instance is in the very west of Stonefield, at the mouth of the path into The Last Valley. Of course, Omen Sight or Quantum Sight is required to lead your raid into, or even see, the portal.
The following information is from the PTS and should be considered VERY preliminary. All of this may change before this instance goes Live (presumably with 1.6).
All Boss notes and strategies can be found on the boss' individual mob page.
The Planar Gate
Three waves of mobs will emerge from the Planar Gate before Ereandorn.
- 2 Flaming Tricksters and 4 Growing Flames
- 2 Ravenous Flames and 4 Flaming Tricksters
- 2 Fire Wings (see notes on mob page)
After the fight, 4 Phoenix-Born spawn behind you at the bottom of the rise.
Trash mobs here can Enrage. All 52 Epic trash (this list is NOT exhaustive):
Right in front of Beruhast is a Phoenix-Born Riftblade, 2 Born of Fires, and 4 Blackened Souls. All seven will come together. Use two tanks and separate the Blackened Souls while DPS downs the first three in the order named.
Rescue the five Bahmi Priests from the cages along the way. They will be needed for the next boss as each can save you from one Incinerate. However, there is an achievement for downing the next boss without them!
