Triumph of the Dragon Queen Guide

Published on November 25, 2012 by admin in Rift Raid, Storm Legion, Triumph of the Dragon Queen

Triumph of the Dragon queen is the first 10 man raid available at level 60. The entrance to Triumph of the Dragon Queen is located in Kingsward at 5713, 8753, in front of the Tower of Dawn entrance (if you quested in Kingsward you’ll know what I’m talking about). To see the entrance to the 10 man raid you need to use Quantum Sight.


To spare yourself from wipes there are a few things you need to know about Triumph of the Dragon Queen before adventuring inside.


For this raid you will need 2 tanks. Both of the tanks will need 400 toughness to not get smashed by bosses.

The rest of the raid will need 420 focus to be able to hit the bosses.


The encounters are not difficult and the enrage timers are not tight. Triumph of the Dragon Queen is meant to be easy so people can gear up by running it. You will need basic skills to be able to clear this raid, as in: move from stuff on the ground, interrupt, switch target and press your healing buttons.


I’m not familiar with the lore behind this 10 man raid, but you will see familiar faces inside. There are 4 bosses and 2 mini events.

Grand Falconer Zoles

If you manage to get pass the annoying trash you will come face to face with Grand Falconer Zoles. He sure looks awfully familiar, I think he sneaked out of Abyssal Precipice when no one was looking spacer . He he an easy boss, all you have to do is kill an add and move from red circles on the ground (more details below). If you kill him he will reward you with a nice piece of loot and 4 Frozen Eclipse Stones.

Well well, if it isn’t Cyril. I’ve been waiting so long to punch this guy, I just can’t wait to do it every week. I might even do Triumph of the Dragon Queen on an alt just for him.

For being the Champion of Guardians, Cyril is not a hard boss. I would have expected more from him. He has a tank swap and he mind controls people, rather then that it’s just tank and spank.

Freshly escaped from Charmer’s Caldera, Jultharin is here to show us his wisps and laser beams once more. For this boss you will need some coordination and communication or it might end up in a wipe fest. The mechanics are not complicated, all you need to do is to synchronize the raid.

General Typhiria

Filling the position of the last boss in Triumph of the Dragon Queen is none other then General Typhiria from Tower of the Shattered. Compared with the first 3 bosses, she is harder. The key to this fight is to make it through Phase 1 and you should get her down.

Gelidra Kill Video

Published on November 26, 2012 by admin in Frozen Tempest, Rift Raid, Storm Legion, Video

Gelidra is the first boss in the 20 man raid Frozen Tempest. The fight is not so easy if you’re coming in with blue gear. But the more gear you get the easier it comes.

Gelidra Raid Setup

For this fight you need 2 tanks. I think the Rogue/Cleric combo would work the best and the worst would be Cleric/Cleric.

To heal this encounter we used 2 Chloromancers, 1 Sent/Puri and 1 high Sentinel.

As support we had 1 Bard and 1 Archon.

The DPS squad can be made out of any classes as long as your raid totals 150k DPS to meet the enrage timer.

For Gelidra we have the recording of our first kill from 2 players.

Mage healer point of view – complete with annoying commercial at the start !

General Typhiria Strategy

Published on November 25, 2012 by admin in Rift Raid, Storm Legion, Triumph of the Dragon Queen

General Typhiria is the last boss in Triumph of the Dragon Queen. If you found any of the previous bosses to be hard, they are nothing compared to her.

Health: 13.810.000

Enrage timer: 7 minutes

Difficulty: medium

Must have ability: none

Raid Setup

1 tank: any class can tank her. Cleric tank would be advised for the extra combat ress.

3 healers: there is a lot of AOE damage going around in Phase 1 so you want to be able to cover that.

1 support: can be a Bard or a Tactician/Bard hybrid.

5 DPS: melee or ranged it doesn’t matter.

General Typhiria Tactics

General Typhiria encounter is made out of 2 phases. In Phase 1 you will fight her in her human form and in Phase 2 she will transform into a dragon.

Phase 1

In Phase 1 General Typhiria will be in her human for and she will have 6.600.000 HP. To push her into Phase 2 you need to take her to 15%. Until then you will need to survive her evil abilities.


  • Lightning Surge: 2 seconds cast, chains between 3 people and deals 4.000 damage.
  • Tempest of Agony: 10 seconds channel, deals 6.000 damage every 2 seconds.
  • Storm Warden: 10 seconds into the fight she will summon a foothold (Storm Warden) with 1.000.000 HP and 2 adds (Storm Mistress) with 686.000 HP. 1 minute after she spawns the Storm Warden she will start AOEing your raid to death. To avoid this you need to kill the Storm Warden and pick up the protective blue orb. To kill the Storm Warden in time you will have to kill one of the Storm Mistress and then use the reactive ability you gain after killing the add on the Storm Warden twice. Be careful ! When a Storm Mistress is about to die she will explode (marked with a yellow bubble). Move out of it or die.
  • Dark Clouds: 3 seconds cast, by the end of the cast you want to pick up the blue orb that spawned after you killed the Storm Warden and be inside the blue zone and at max range from the boss.
  • Storm Blast: 2.5 seconds cast time, places a yellow death zone on a player. You must move out of it. After Dark Clouds she will spam Storm Blast for a minute before going back to what she was doing before that. To avoid this ability stand as far away from the boss as you can and on top of the player holding the blue orb. When you move out of it you want the entire raid to move in the same direction so everyone is still inside the blue zone. The effect of Storm Blast is sometimes bigger then the marked area so move as far as you can.

If your DPS is low you might have to repeat this sequence twice.

I know this probably sounds hard, but when you will see it for yourself you will know what I’m talking about.

Pull the boss in the middle of the room and burn her as much as you can. When the Storm Warden and the Mistress spawn bring them to the boss, mark 1 and kill her then use the reactive ability you gain on the Storm Warden to kill it. Don’t pick up the blue orb just yet, leave it there until she starts casting Dark Clouds. Keep on DPSing her down until them.

In this first minute she will cast Tempest of Agony twice so healers be ready to outheal that. Make sure you are standing in a safe spot if you are a healer. You don’t want to have to move from the adds exploding when you have to spam heal for Tempest of Agony.

When she casts Dark Clouds run to the orb, have someone pick it up (run on top of it), then move max range from the boss and stack on the person holding the orb. When the yellow band appears, everyone strafe in the direction you chose to avoid it. You will have to do this 5 times before this phase is over. After the orb phase ends she will cast Tempest of Agony so healers need to be prepared.

Phase 2

If you made it to Phase 2, congrats, you are now on the right path. I don’t think it’s possible to wipe in this phase. There is almost no damage going around and the only thing you have to worry about is running circles around the dragon to avoid the breath.

In this phase you will be fighting General Typhiria in her dragon form. She has 8.200.000 health and only 1 deadly ability.


  • Lightning Surge: 2 seconds cast, chains on 3 people, deals 4.000 damage.
  • Whirlwind of Agony: 10 second channel, deals 800 damage every 2 seconds (I guess someone forgot to add a 0 or something to this ability).
  • Blue circle: move away from it, it lifts you in the air.
  • Storm Wardens: she will summon 2 Storm Wardens and 2 Storm Raiders. You can ignore them. If you do decide to kill them you will be rewarded with 4 blue orbs that increase your run speed for 20 seconds. Not worth bothering with them if you ask me.
  • Dark Clouds: 3 seconds cast, marks the beginning of the “run circles around the dragon” phase.
  • Typhiria’s Wrath: 2 seconds cast followed by a 40 seconds channel. She does a breath and spins counterclockwise. You have to run away from the breath. Use a run speed aura if you must, but you should be able to outrun the breath without any speed buffs. Also don’t get to close to her either. There will be a small green area around her. If you touch that area she will knock you back. She does this ability every minute.
  • Unknown Bird add: there is a bird add spawning at some point during this fight as well. Just ignore it. If you kill it, it will explode (like on Falconer Zoles). Most of the times it ends up exploding while people are running circles to avoid the breath and results in undesired deaths.

This phase is really easy and you should be able to make it even if you do suffer casualties. Her enrage doesn’t do much, the only ability that will harm you is Lightning Surge and as long as you are spread out it will only kill 1 player at a time. As I said, if you make it through Phase 1 she is as good as dead.
