  • I sense mortals.. DESTROY THEM!
  • Why must I do eveything myself...
  • Pesky mortals...
  • Heads will roll for this embarassment. I've been here all day! And now this?!
  • Just what I needed, adventurers in the ritual chamber. Mayber we'll have some sacrifices after all.
  • I can't be bothered with this nonsense... not when we're so close. Handle it!
  • This better work...
  • Still nothing? This is going to take longer than I thought.
  • Are they all asleep up there?
  • Maybe I should've tried with sacrifices. It's always easier with sacrifices.
  • What could be taking so long? I'm not doing it right.
  • There should be fire now. Where's the fire?
  • Maybe Eberron is affecting it. What's coterminous right now?
  • Maybe I should try some lightning.
  • It'll be easy, she said. Just read the book, she said.

Quest Strategy

On normal difficulty, Aurora will not activate until all three Cursed Ritualists are killed. The party can clear each of the three tunnels and kill the ritualists as it goes along. Be aware that once Aurora does activate, trash will spawn in all three tunnels and come to the center. The trash is numerous and can easily overwhelm a party that doesn't have crowd control or instakills.

On hard difficulty, Aurora will activate as soon as she sees you, but she is invulnerable until the 3 ritualists are killed. Therefore, she is usually kited by one party member, while the others clear the three tunnels and kill the ritualists.

On elite difficulty, Aurora will activate as soon as she sees you, but she is invulnerable until the 3 ritualists are killed and the ritualists must be killed within about 30 seconds of each other. Therefore, she is usually kited by one party member, while the others clear the three tunnels of trash (without killing the ritualists)! The ritualists are then kited to the center and killed simultaneously. Only then can Aurora be taken down.

Combat

A marilith’s natural weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as chaotic-aligned and evil-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Feats

Part of it's natural abilities, a marilith’s Multiweapon Fighting feat allows it to attack with all its arms at no penalty.
