Adventure Guide

The Anraphet maintenance unit was created to man the inner workings of the Halls of Origination. In the event that the facility is contaminated by foreign entities, Anraphet will access programs designed to annihilate the intruders by any means necessary.


  • Ability warrior titansgrip.png  Nemesis Strike Magic Effect — Anraphet strikes his current target, inflicting Shadow damage equal to 50% of his normal melee attack and 5850 to 6150 Shadow damage every 2 seconds for 10 sec. 
  • Spell shadow dispersion.png  Alpha Beams — Anraphet begins to channel Alpha Beams at a random player, inflicting 9750 to 10250 Shadow damage to players within 5 yards of the target's location every 0.5 second for 3 sec. In Heroic Difficulty the shadowy area of an Alpha Beam persists and inflicts damage for the remainder of the fight. 
  • Ability warrior intensifyrage.png  Omega Stance — Anraphet assumes his Omega Stance, inflicting 5000 Shadow damage on all enemy targets every 1 second for 8 sec. Omega Stance also reduces the movement speed of enemies by 50% for 4 sec. 
  • Spell nature earthquake.png  Crumbling Ruin — After using either Alpha Beams or Omega Stance, Anraphet casts Crumbling Ruin. This ability decreases the maximum health of all enemies by 8%, and stacks up to 10 times. 


When Anraphet casts Alpha Beams, he will create void zones at that player's feet. He will switch through a few players per cast. Everyone must not stand in the void zones as it deals high damage. Stop whatever you are doing and move. This is especially so in heroic mode when a permanent void zone will be created around the target area.

About every minute, Anraphet will channel Omega Stance, dealing damage to everyone. Help your healer by using a damage reducing cooldown or self-healing abilities if he/she is unable to cope.


In heroic mode, the void zones created by Alpha Beams will stay on the ground throughout the fight. The tank can kite Anraphet around to ground that is not covered by void zones. Avoid trapping yourselves within a circle of void zones by constantly moving backwards towards the door you first came in.

While survivability is important, this is also a DPS race. You need to kill him before his debuff can reduce your health so much that he one shots you. Each DPSer needs to be doing at least 6kdps.

Brann Bronzeberd says: That did the trick, the control room should be behind this--oh wow...
