What to Expect
Tips and Misc
- Helpful buffs: acid resistance (if you are going for Costumous/mimic optional), underwater action (if you are going for Kin'haros optional), deathblock/deathward/etc. for Beholder end fight.
- As you enter the quest, talk to Arissa, the stage manager, then proceed to the stage toward the west end of Lordsmarch Plazae and talk to Tolan, the promoter, to get started.
- Don't be in a hurry to buff up - after you talk to Tolan, there will be well over a minute before anything happens, with 10+ seconds of Yaulthoon talking before the fighting begins.
- To prevent/reduce dungeon alert during artistic onslaught, fight at the spawn spots. Kill all waves at one spot, then move to another.
- Yalthoun will announce the next phase ("...A crashing sound...") - if all goes quiet, one or more mobs got lost somewhere in the Plaza; find and kill them all to advance the quest.
- Clear monsters at the Harbor Tunnel entrance (south/southeast side of the Plaza). This awards another set of shrines and a chest ("...the promise of treasure.").
- Optional: Only after the initial artistic onslaught is complete, you can now backtrack to the entrance area door (just east of the chest) to fight Costumous and earn another chest. A secret door in the wall can be found in the dressing area behind where you first spoke to Arissa (not shown on map).
- Enter the harbor tunnel (via the door between the new set of shrines).
- Optional: Kin'haros (and a chest) is hidden in the harbor tunnel, at the end of a long swim to an underwater lever, then on to the underwater gate to his lair. Waterbreathing or Underwater Action is highly recommended. (Just follow the right-hand wall.)
- At the "collapsed wall" inside this tunnel is the portal to the last section. Going past it only leads to more fighting and ridicule.
- Once inside, head north to the two Xoriat chambers, then backtrack down to kill the beholder boss.
- There are 7 easily accessible collectables in this tunnel.
- All party members who are in the quest must gather near the beholder; once the last arrives, the fight starts.
- The door to the beholder chamber closes and seals behind you during the end fight. If anyone leaves (e.g. by Dimension Door), they cannot reenter the fight until the boss is killed, when the doors re-open.
