TO INCLUDE NEW POS MOBS. Mobs now drops shards, and new mobs spawn
that drop shards. Read the All
About Shards at the bottom of this walkthrough prior to
2k with you PRIOR to porting, to buy a key (there is no bank up there).
This is the easiest PoS chain to do, and a good one to start with. This
chain is one groupable, we did with a DK, Resist Cl, Lich, and Pyro. Time
- 4 hours. The mobs you will encounter don't hit too hard, and with max
AR, your AC should still be good, but the mobs do take a long time to
kill due to their high hitpoints.
Port up to Plane of Sky (druid or wiz port). From that main island, head
n/w to a windmill; buy a rain key from Liztin Misseliania (fairy),
outside a hut for 2000 tunar.
Now head n/w and cross a bridge to a little island. Take the key to the
essence of rain. Creatur Tamer Ani is available to provide creatures for
charming, if needed. You'll see the portal at then end of the island.
using the portal (TY Tossinpots): Ensure you've purchase the
right key. The portal has a tendancy to glitch and work very slowly if
everyone crowds around it, so one at a time, approach the portal (any
others with you should stand back). Do NOT con/talk to the portal. As
you get within a range of 3-5 it will automatically give you a pop up
offering for you to place key into hole-read the text carefully and chose
the correct option. The popup will happen automatically if you have the
right key in your inventory. Each person should approach no sooner than
1-2 second since the last person has vanished. I even found, while db'in,
the toon on a/f would still get the popup just fine even though they were
very close (on auto follow) But conning it and talking had a tendency
to make the light not work properly for a short time (couple mins).
con and speak to the essence, you'll get a popup that tells you you are
missing something. You MUST wait for the popup to be given to you.
in the rain chain may con lb or db, but all have a significant amount
of hps and take time to kill. Be aware of adds while killing the mob you're
The mobs on this island are LB to a lvl 60 and are fairly weak. They nuke
with AR and have no AoE. Hunt around the island killing these mobs until
you find a named mob (Artiokanis?).
Killing the named mob will drop 8 keys AND LOOT
The same person must loot all the ntl shards from the mobs as you progress
through the island.
If you have
more than 8 people, you will need to find another named mob and get 8
more keys. Each person uses the key on the portal in the center of the
island. These are tradable keys. The portal takes a while to port everyone
through, it may make you wait a while. The portal will spawn in the center
of the island, so assure you have a clear path to it. Take the portal
to Rain 2
Talk to Trixie Longwings and she gives you a quest. You need to have -99
faction to log the quest, and only one person can do it at a time. She
will tell you that Sterie Glitterlight is missing on the other side of
the maze, and will you help her?
OK, the maze is quite simple. Map
of maze. Start
by going left, then str8 (ignoring next right), from this point on, HUG
the right wall and follow it everywhere, it will lead you out. Kill the
guardian gargoyes you encounter along the way, don't loot. (DB to lvl
60, lots of hps)
you get out the other side, you'll con Sterie. Buff up, then the questor
must speak with her. At this point a white con spirit (kaglanor) spawns
behind you near the maze wall ruins.
Kill and loot the spirit and have the same person LOOT SHARD2
(Again, looted by the same person that looted Shard1). Now sow and buff
the questor. They alone can run through the maze out the other side (hugging
the LEFT wall all the way, see map). Run to a safe spot out other side,
die, get rez back, after rez affects are over, speak with Trixie again
to get the wand.
At this point,
we coh'd the questor back to the rest of the group, where the essence
of rain port was, but if you don't have coh, the questor can just deathgate
through the maze again (make sure groupmates are hidden on other side
so you don't train them).
Use the wand,
which makes 8 keys to use on the essence of rain portal. Repeat the quest
if you have more than 8 friends with you. Use the Key of downpour.
Pass through the portal onto the next island.
Log your PoS armor quest here if you want to from one of the bird
people in the aviak village. Each class must speak to a different NPC.
Not a bad idea for a guild to leave a rezzer here, so that future questors
have direct access to log their pos quest armour.
is the quest npc for this island, he is in the lower hut (he's also the
pos caster armour quest giver).
But before you log the quest, farm the forest qex's that roam around in
the trees, Singe is going to ask you for 4 wings. If you need more than
8 keys you will need to collect 4 wings on 2 people. Be forewarned, the
wings are a rare drop. You will kill at least 10 qex's for each wing,
and the qex's take a few minutes to kill because they have a lot of hps.
Now, have the person with the four 4 feathers turn them in to get the
next part. Singe requires further help; go into the cave on the island
with the flesh maggots. Make your way down the tunnel - just a straight
path - kill the flesh maggots along the way (don't even open the box or
you'll pop it); there are two drops off a high cliff where you can just
drop down, the third one drops you into the big cavern with your boss
mob. For this drop, jump from the right side of the ledge and run all
the way to the right - its safe there.
Clear the surrounding maggots, and then pull Ghizilanve behind a pillar
and kill, she takes a while. Loot her black gem of narciliisisin. Immediately
after she is dead, the portal to leave will spawn, but you're not done
yet. Behind the pillar you'll see Granavik the bugbeast has now spawned
(new mob), rebuff everyone, make sure the area is clear of flesh maggots
and pull him to a safe spot to kill. With one group he took about 10-15
minutes to kill. If you have more damage, it will go faster. Kill him
and LOOT HIS SHARD OF TORRENTS SHARD3
(looted by the same person that looted shard1 and shard2).
NOTE: Ghizilanve will spawn again at the back of the cave. If you are
doing this quest for more than 8 people, you will need to kill Ghizilanve
again and have the second questor loot her black gem.
all done in the cavern everyone port, by conning the essence of rain and
talking to it, (approach it carefully so as not to agg the resapwned Ghizilanve).
Now the questor must go speak with Singe Burntfeathers again. He is shocked
by the gem you found off Ghizilanve and begs you to help him kill this
evil necrologist. You agree, and he will give you another wand, to make
the road from this aviak village, and you find the port there, the essence
of rain. Use the keys from the wand on this portal. Sometimes it's picky
and it will take awhile to get everyone through the portal.
You will appear on an island inhabited by small demions. Circle around
the right side of the island to the other side and roam around the area
where the portal is until you acquire a pop-up which will spawn a warlock
(the popup is sometimes near the portal, or sometimes on opposite side
of Isle, it roams). Get
the popup and the Necrologist will spawn. Kill the Necrologist (only body
pull him, the aggro on the demions is tied to him) and the portal is activated.
wait! Now a Spirit of Narciliisisin has spawned (although undead nukes
don't work on the spirit, go figure). Kill the spirit and LOOT HIS SHARD4
(By same person that looted 1,2,3). Now you're all clear to go through
the portal, to Rain 5 and kill Chimeran (he spawns fairly far ahead of
the group, so it's safe to buff and assemble before pulling). Chimera
is the only mob that spawns on Rain 5.
only spawns on Rain 5, when someone on Rain 4 gets the popup and kills
the necrologist to spawn the portal. So if you wish to farm chimera for
loot, you must leave a group with the necrologist to continue getting
the popup etc.
Get a rezzing alt to Rain 4 so that you can get back here. You can rez
to get to this island by dying before you port, running to the nw edge
of the main island, and getting a los rez from someone standing on this
island. You will need to come back for lava 57 and lava 59.
on farming: if your guild plans to farm Chimera, always take a look on
the who. If there are a large amount of people there it is possible they
are going through the Rain Chain quest and will need to spawn and kill
Chimera to get complete their quest. It's best to send a tell and determine
what is going on rather than have a guild conflict. Progressing through
the Rain Chain takes a lot of time and effort and CS believes the guild
doing the quest has priority over mere farming.
- nothing here but the boss (Chimerean the Tyrant).
you have lava 57 logged, run to the right to get a pop up.
If you have lava 59 logged, run to the left near some lava on the
way to the chimerean.
the Tyranist will spawn far ahead of where you ported in. Only those in
KS group will be flagged as completing the Rain Chain. If you are doing
this with more than four ppl, Chim will need to be killed twice (by leaving
a group behind to get the popup to spawn the aviak, killing him, killing
his spirit, then porting through for their turn at Chim).
This mob can be one grouped. The tank rh'd and coh'd back at this
point because both sets of his armour were X'd. Chimareon uses an arcane
based debuff to lower the AC of your tank. Ensure tank has max AR and
they'll only lose about 3-400 AC. He has no AoE, so there are no worries
with hiding or stacking. Have tank pull back to the group, and kill him.
by the same person who already looted 1,2,3&4).
If you have
more than four ppl needing the flag, have the group you left on Rain 4
get the popup to spawn Chimareon again. They will have to kill the necrologist
again, and then they can port through and take their turn; make sure these
four form the KS group by having everyone else ungroup. Repeat till everyone
Repeat kill on CtT with another 4 people grouped. Repeat till everyone
To finish, port through the portal to the isle of wonder and talk to the
manifestation of rain. The Manifestation of Rain will give you the NO
TRADE key that allows you to return to Rain 1 for free at any time. If
the MoR speaks with you, you will know you have successfully be flagged.
Congratulations you have now completed the Chain of Rain! Anytime you
wish to redo the Rain Chain, just speak with the MoR who will give you
a key for free.
to learn what to do with your five shards!
sure the SAME person loots all 5 shards that drop on the Rain chain!!
ONE person will need all the shards to spawn the Construct of Storms later.
what about those 5 shards you looted? When your raid group is ready, you
take your five shards to the main Island (where you originally bought
your rain key). Head east towards the edge, and you should be able to
con the Astral Light (if its up) which cons red. Don't speak to the orb
until everyone is ready! Once you speak with it, and turn in all your
shards from rain chain (blue shards), it will conduct an AOE port and
everyone there will be ported to a NEW PoS island. Don't have pets out,
it only ports 16 ppl and pets count as 1.
on the island, get set up. Once ready, speak to the Astral entity to spawn
the Construct of Storms. It looks like a huge water elemental, and there
is an AoE to beware of. CS
did this with 2 groups very easily.
Now to explain
about the shards. While ONE person has to collect all the shards as you
progress through Rain chain (in order to spawn the end mob), a different
person can loot the big boss named construct mobs. But again, ONE person
has to loot all the big boss end mobs in order to spawn Veeshan's twins
Bulwark and Talon.
mob is dead, have your designated looter loot the shard. If there are
any rares, be quick about determining who loots, after five minutes you
are automatically ported off this island.
