The raid is found within Mor Dhona and is accessible upon completion the quest "For Prosperity", which is given to you after you complete the Labyrinth of the Ancients raid quest. You can then take on the quest "Syrcus Tower", which is given by Rammbroes in Mor Dhona.Now, let’s start rock the adventure!

First Boss: Scylla
Scylla has fours balls which are Elemental Balls,Lightning Balls,Ice Balls, Flame Balls, you guys should be careful to avoid these balls.The Ice,Flame and Lighting Balls will target and follow the players, and it will release DEBUFF. If you are hit by the balls, it is hardly to throw off, so you need run into to the green circle in the area to resolve the buff. This is unavoidable and cannot be stopped. What you can and should do is to make sure that people around you aren't caught in the freeze. If you are hit by the Flame Ball, just run into the Ice circle.

In addition that Boss would cast the Daybreak to petrify everyone in seconds. Each one must stack on a small platform energized by the lightning orbs, which raises a shield that blocks the Daybreak cast. Then, the Healer should try the best to support allies on time

Second Boss: Glasya Labolas
Actually, this Boss didn’t has amazing skills. You will notice the battlefield is a mess, the bombs all over the place. The Tank should pull Glasya in the center of the area. While, the DPS and Healer need to stand in the small shaded area next to the add and intercept the line.In the later, Glasya will activate the three hitherto dormant teleportation pads on the central platform, if you are still on the central platform will die. You will be launched to an outer platform depends on the catapult.

Third Boss: Amon
This Boss is interesting, it would change you to be a frog randomly. You guys should pay attention on the skill of Curtain Call, when Amon is casting this ability, you should hide behind the ice blocks which is similar to the meteor form King Behemoth.

Ultimate Boss: Xande
This big boss has close combat skill, the Melee classes and Tank pay attention to avoid.When the Boss fly to the area, there are lots of golden orbs with a small golden radius around them. You have about 10-15 seconds before they detonate, so the raid should be fairly well spread in anticipation of this. They explode and deal about 500 damage per explosion if not neutralized, and since he spawns about a dozen at a time, this is a good way to lose a chunk of your raid if nobody is paying attention.
