The Avatars of Eryslai, The Kingdom of Wind

"Disciplined, wait for disorder;
calm, wait for clamor.
This is the way to manage the mind."

Sun Tzu, "The Art of War"

A. The Basics

There are 4 Avatars in Eryslai, The Kingdom of Wind (aka "Plane of Air"). Killing each involves clearing to a small island and completing a ring event to spawn the Avatar, and then, with a 45-minute time limit, clearing to the temple where the Avatar resides and pulling and killing it. Named mobs during the events may drop worthwhile loot, along with other named mobs along the way. Only the Avatars drop elementals molds/patterns. The triggers for these events are trackable as "an apparition of...", and these Avatars are only available once every 3 days. Access to Xegony for Planar Progression to Time requires creating a key, made from parts looted from each of the four Avatars.

B. The Wind Ring

Trigger: Kill all the stormriders on the Stormrider Isle, causing the Stormrider Priest of Destruction to spawn.

Phase One: Kill the Stormrider Priest of Destruction, spawning 3 "a sporadic stormrider".

Phase Two: Kill the 3 "a sporadic stormrider", spawning 5 "Pherlondien Clawpike".

Phase Three: One of the 5 "Pherlondien Clawpike" is real: he hits harder, leaves a corpse, drops loot, and spawns the Avatar of Wind back in the Temple (with a zone-wide emote). The other 4 are fakes that hit lighter and leave no corpse.

The Boss: Once the Avatar of Wind spawns back in the temple, there is a 45 minute timer to pull/kill him. He hits 2k, rampages, blurs himself, and uses a PBAE Lure of the Storm.

Loot: Avatar of Wind drops 2 loot each time. His table includes Elemental wrist molds/patterns, and an assortment of other loot.

C. The Smoke Ring

Trigger: Kill all the elementals on the Elemental Isle, causing 4 "an elemental champion" to spawn.

Phase One: Kill 4 "an elemental champion" to spawn An Elemental Masterpiece.

Phase Two: Kill "An Elemental Masterpiece" to spawn Avatar of Smoke back in the temple. An Elemental Masterpiece will drop loot.
