The very air here seems to sizzle with arcane power. You spot a figure clad in robes of the Twelve crouched over by the remains of a Giant skeleton.

Tips and Misc

Entrance

  • Two memory style puzzles in the opening room, opposite each other, with a lever below each. When the lever is pulled, a sequence of 3 random tiles will light up on the 3x3 "number pad puzzle". That sequence will have to be repeated by a player. Then a new sequence of 4 tiles will light up and then another sequence of 5 tiles. When the third sequence is solved the entire puzzle will light up. An error will cause the entire puzzle to reset and all sequences will have to be repeated. Once solved, the puzzle will stay lit for 45 seconds (both on EN, EH and EE) before resetting (turning dark).
  • The two puzzles in the entrance room have enough delay for one person to solve both.
  • Solving both puzzles will open a gate to the main area and locks instance.

Main area, below platform

  • In the main arena, a number of giant skeletons will spawn. They can easily be kited around.
  • The red-named Skeleton, Forgotten Stormborn King, will (like the blue dragon) cast Storm Magic, a debuff that increases the target's vulnerability to electrical and magical damage.
  • The Forgotten Stormborn King casts guided light that on EN can deal 700+ electric damage. Storm Magic can be dispelled by Under Shelter buff which you can get by going below the platform. Taking Dimension Door and going to entrance area also dispels it.
  • In the main arena, a raised plateau is surrounded by a force field behind which the blue dragon has shielded itself. Three freestanding walls with bands of arcane energy on top; one to the west, one to the north and one to the east, each have TWO memory puzzles, one on each side. These puzzles will have to be solved in a similar manner to the ones in the entry room to drop the barrier. Each PAIR of puzzles have to be solved together (time for reset unknown). All six does not need to be solved simultaneously, meaning two people can do puzzles while the rest of the party keeps the skeletons away.
  • When all three pairs of puzzles are lit, the force field will come down and Reverse Gravity effect (where tornado-like air streams are) will turn on, making it possible to reach the plateau.

Main area, above platform

  • The blue dragon has a very large pool of hit points and deals massive electrical damage, including the debuff Storm Magic. This buff will stack multiple times (how many unknown; 16 observed).
  • A designated tank should take his aggro and others should attack him from side or back, in order to avoid getting hit by his lightening breath/Storm Magic.
  • Also, when yellow runes are lit floating around the dragon, all the party members should go hide around the dragon's tail, between his closed wings, in order to avoid the lightning/Storm Magic also.
  • Time to time air elementals would spawn, and white circles appears on the ground, these should not be hard to be dealt with.
  • As you beat the dragon down to a certain point, dragon will fly away. Now west, north and east gate leading to side areas are all open. You must go do another 6 puzzle pairs around the area.

Side areas, 6 puzzle pairs

  • From this point all your party member is under lightning DoT effect (Eye of the Storm, 7 seconds a tick). This effect keeps adding up, unless you are under the Shelter effect or reset its charge by Storm Cage effect obtained while you are on one of the runes.
  • Most puzzles are behind the gates, locked by rune pillars. You must go though all 6 puzzle pairs (so 12 puzzles total). However unlike previous puzzles, these pair don't have to be solved in a timely manner. There are 7 pairs of puzzles total across the map, so the players get to skip one of these.
  • Depending on your party leader's choice, group may split up, and activating rune pillars and solving puzzles requires teamwork however things tend to go rough here.
  • Since only one person can use a rune/Cage effect at one time, when other party members are around you, you shouldn't occupy the rune for too long.
  • Shrine on the NE corner also has Under Shelter effect.

Main area, above platform

  • As you finish the 6 pairs of puzzles, DoT effect ends. You can now go back to the platform and begin the dragon fight again. He is back at full at this point.
