Isle of Prayer: Crystal Caverns 1

Isle of Prayer: Crystal Caverns 1

RB Tears (Water based)

[NOTE: Each player can only do the Crystal Caverns instance ONCE per 24 Hours, so each day you must choose either
Tears, Kechi, or Darnel, not all three. You can do the RB's in any order. When you kill the 3rd RB, and if all the party has
all 3 Crystals, you have the option to port into the Baylor Instance. Further explanation in a later article.]

In order to pass this mini location you have to do some arrangements before going there.

Items that are needed: About 20 Crystal Fragments, Water Dragon Scales, Water Potions.

The fragments are obtained by killing chests under the water in the very same place where Crystal Caverns are.

In order to obtain those fragments you should buff Kiss of Eva, otherwise the drop chance will be close to zero:
with the buff every chest will drop the fragment.
(Red Corals can also be obtained from these chests, you will need them for another RB.)

It’s enough that only 1 party member will have the fragments, but everybody should have a Water Dragon Scale, this item
is needed to kill the boss. It’s desirable that everybody should have 3-4 Scales in case of a fail (I will talk about this later).
The item drops from a Water Dragon.

-Go to Chromatic Highlands, there is a house to the right – the most safe place to farm scales. Get buffs and agro the nearest
dragon, kill him and his guards. Then another dragon will appear.
-Respawning mobs will drop the item Spirit of the Lake – this item is needed to heal the dragon, because its HP will start to
drop as soon as he respawns. Target the dragon, use the item -> the dragon is healed. Keep killing mobs/healing the dragon
for 5-7 minutes. After that he will disappear and drop an item(s).
-It could be Water Dragon Scale or Water Dragon Claw or both. The looting system should be set to Finders Keepers so that
everybody should pick up an item.
(The Claw is needed to kill Baylor, you will need to farm it also, and its drop rate is lower than Scales.)
-As soon as every party member will have the Scale you can go to Tears.

In order to get to Tears you have to choose Coral Garden at the NPC. Walk in. There is a little round room and a couple of
rooms smaller, every one with mobs in it. Mobs are hitting hard, almost all attacks of them are water based. They can crit so
don’t forget to use Water potions and be aware. It’s better to lure mobs one by one and slowly walk round the circle. Or you
can die. After you have killed all mobs in all rooms 2 mobs will respawn in the round room. These mobs should be lured to the
little deepening in front of each mob.

Drop fragments one by one before the mob, he will walk to them and eat them -> you must lure it like that to the deepening.
It must stand completely in the circle on the floor, if a blue animation will appear – everything is ok. Estimate the fragments
you need to lure mobs, don’t drop more than 1 – mobs are not that smart. When the both mobs are lured to the deepening
the door to the boss will open. It is situated in the end of those 2 rooms where you have killed the mobs. The boss is
located there.

The boss is not that hard overall, but there are some tricks. Put Water Dragon Scales on the hotbar so you wont search it
in your inventory. Get buffed, use Water potions and start to kill it.

The boss will use Freezes from time to time. The player affected won’t be able to do anything for 5 seconds, it’s not that scary.

After some time, some 'fake' bosses will start to spawn, and the actual Tears will repeatedly remove the party's targets. Don’t be afraid these are fake bosses. The main idea is to distract you. You need to guess the “real” Tears.
The right boss is the one hitting, so keep assisting the tanker, and you will be fine. The tanker can also move from where the fake ones spawned, making re-targeting even easier. This process will happen several times.

Closer to the end (boss HP =~10-15%) Tears will become invincible. You can’t damage it, all the attacks are blocked.
It’s removed like this – as soon as you have understood that the boss is in UD stop shooting and kiting it.
Target the boss and walk to it (I remind you that everybody must have Water Dragon Scale on their hotbars).
On the leaders command, everybody must click the Scale SIMULTANEOUSLY, animation will appear and UD will be removed.
Now you can finish the boss.

Upon killing it, it will drop several Black and/or White Seed Shards, and every party member receives a Clear Crystal
in place of the Contaminated Crystal. -- You can SoE or PR now.
