Once cindrax is dead, an NPC named Operator of Fire spawn on the elevator in the center of the room. This NPC will server as elevator operator that will help navigate through 5 floors of this zone. Talk to him, and request to be sent to 2nd floor. Careful navigate your way through the corridor in the north. Stepping into fire in this corridor will hit you by Scorched, a short lasting incurable debuff that does will hit you for at least a quarter of your max HP. Killing slugs in this corridor will make them drop Magmacus.

  • For most part fight is tank n spank.
  • When the name casts Magmatic Expulsion will cause knock back.
  • Throughout the fight name will emote “A molten rock is expelled from the behemoth! Get rid of it!“.
  • When that happens, a molten rock will spawn beneath the name. Each rock that drops pulses heat damage.
  • Letting too many of these rocks stack will result in a massive damage, that may be extremely too hard to heal through.
  • Designated player has to Use Magmacus, click on the rock to pick it up like house furniture and place it on Ro’s Brazier at the end of the room (marked as red circle). This will destroy the rock.
  • Rinse and repeat this, while rest of the group burns the name.

3rd Floor

After The Molten Behemoth is dead, go back to the elevator and speak to Operator of Fire and request to go down to 3rd floor. Go through the corridor in south-west and kill all scorched fiends, and loot all the bodies. Make sure each member of the group gets Obsidian Sun Disc. This item will be used on the next floor to prevent massive damage from the fires in the corridors of the 4th floor.

4th Floor

After Balrezu is dead, go back to the elevator and speak to Operator of Fire and request to go down to 4th floor. Before going through the corridor in south-east it’s now time to use Obsidian Sun Discs. This will prevent the fires in this corridor from killing you. Be careful though, once used, for 10 seconds you will be immune to the damage from the fire, however you will also not be able to do any damage to efreeti fire lords that inhabit this area. If you pull any adds, move into parts of corridor that are not on fire, kill them, then use the discs again to reach the final room.

(4) Verlixa <Order of Ro>

Before the fight

  • Note the 5 braziers in the room, 4 on the ground (marked by green circles) and 1 on the ceiling (marked by yellow circle).

Fight mechanics

  • Every 25% or so, name will teleport to the entrance of the room, root herself and become immune to damage.
  • She will then emote and start spawning non-targetable doppelgangers that will start moving towards brazier, one after another.
  • You must remember the order of the braziers that these mobs walk into. It’s important that you position yourself so you can see all 5 braziers in the room.
  • The number of ghost will increment by one each time the script runs, starting with 2 on the first run of the script.
  • Once all doppelgangers reach their brazier Verlixa disappears, a timer starts and you have to click braziers in correct order.
  • Successfully clicking the first correct brazier (where the initial doppelganger reached) will teleport you into exact replica of that room, with all the braziers in the same place.
  • In this room there will be an add called Shimmering Mirage that must be killed. Once you kill it, you must then click on the brazier that was reached by 2nd doppelganger, to be ported to another room.
  • Repeat this until a portal appears which leads back to the original room.
  • Coming back will cause Verlixa to lose her stoneskin and you can burn until the script repeats again.
  • The doppelganger script will repeat a total of 3 times, after which you can safely kill her.
  • When the doppelganger script starts you will gain incurable debuff Path of Flames, which when expires will wipe the group!
  • Clicking on the wrong brazier will result in death of person who clicked it!

Be ready to fight, as soon as you reach bottom, a ring event starts, as the rocks surrounding the elevator will start turning into mobs, a mass of living obsidian. The mobs will not start attacking unless you’re in their line of sight. Standing in the center of the elevator is a safe spot.
