Tips and Misc

Puzzle solutions
  • The raid doesn't lock out until after speaking to Hawthorn and challenging Hyrsam, allowing you to buff and assign teams.
  • There are four groups of stones, in the South East; South West; North West; and North East.
  • A random number of the 4 puzzle guardians will be inactive upon approach rather than attacking on sight. These can be Bluffed and the fight avoided.
  • Bluff DC:
    •  ♦74Normal fail,  ♦75Normal success
    •  ♥79Hard fail,  ♥80Hard success
    •  ♠??Elite there is no observed bluff chance on elite and above, have to fight all 4 guardians.

This raid takes place on a large meadow.

Separate your group into two teams:

  • One team in the center can defend Hawthorn (usually by tanking 3 unicorns + killing some trash).
  • Second team runs off to solve 4 puzzles + deals with trash spawning from the portal (beetles, chipmunk, bear).

Puzzle solution: all puzzles can be solved by stepping on buttons 12342 unless the first stone on left is lit then it is 24134.

Defend Hawthorn, kill trash and occasional bosses, solve puzzles, win.

Special mechanic: Hyrsam occasionally plays a fairly lethal song, asking you to move as he plays. Watch out for DM text and arrows above your character's head and move accordingly: Strafe left, strafe right, run forward, run back. Your character does not actually have to move (you can bump into an obstacle, that's not a problem), and you can also turn around while doing the moves. If you fail to move as commanded, your character takes significant damage.

Tips for tanking:

  • You don't need to actually tank the horses, kiting works too. Intimidate or ranged dps is recommended to pull back horses who wander off (they are teleporting)
  • The horses deal a massive amount of evil damage. Alignment or Evil absorb items help, as well as high MRR.
  • The horses can knock you down, having some sort of knockdown immunity is advised.
  • The horses have a special aura, that dispells and blocks the deathward spell making you immune to it, while they also deal negative damage and drain levels.
  • Energy drain immunities all work, such as:

Bonus XP
