UPDATE: It was emailed to me that this guide was also posted over on the official forums where people are continuing to chat about it. So discuss here and there. Again super thanks to Nagg for this guide!

Relic’s Key Dungeon

Guide by Nagg

Both Regular and Legendary are the same basically strategy just scaled for different levels.  So learn one, and you learn them all =).  In order to do the dungeon you have to talk to the NPC Tharrath to send him walking towards the Evil Altar.  Once he is at the alter you talk to him again to start the waves of mobs, and they come fast!

I would definitely recommend as a level 60 to go in and try and solo as much as possible.  If you aren’t a healer, the first and third bosses can be a bit tricky as the magic damage doesn’t scale down like physical damage when you are 30 levels higher than mobs.  Meaning it hits a 60 for the same as a level 35 and after taking enough it can still hurt a 60 pretty bad.   

  • -Before you talk to Tharrath, i would recommend clearing the trash mobs that are camped out around the zone, The groups are east.  Use this time to see how good your tank is with threat.  It’s best to let your tank get a couple attacks in before you go nuts.  The Crocodiles stun/silence
  •   1st group is 1 Giant Tale Crocodile and 2 Swamp Giant Tortoises
  •   2nd group is 2 Giant Tale Crocodile, and 1 Swamp Giant Tortoise
  •   3rd group is a patrolling group of 2 Giant Tale Crocodile
  •   4th group are 3 Swamp Guardians (smilidons)

Now you should go back and talk to Tharrath to send him walking to the Evil Altar.

1st Waves

  • -There are 3 waves before the first boss, Hathraad, comes.  3 types of mobs will come: Son of the Lake, Son of the Earth, and Rotten Son of the Lake.  The Sons of the Lake will charge random people, but die pretty easily.  The Sons of the Earth will cast a Heal over Time (HOT) on themselves at 30-40% health.  Since the waves are somewhat predictible which area they will come from, I would recommend the tanks get aggro and start pulling them across altar to where the next mobs will spawn
  •   1st wave comes from the East, 2 mobs, usually one SotL and 1 SotE
  •   2nd wave comes from the West, usually 1 of each mob
  •   3rd wave comes from the Northwest, usually 2 SotE, and 1 RSotL

BOSS – Hathraad
Hathraad has 3 abilities, and other than being tough on the healer to aoe heal, he is fairly easy.  I would recommend standing close enough (10 meters) so the healer can aoe heal all 4 team members.

  •  1st ability is just a single target magic ball.  It is not interruptable
  •  2nd ability is an AOE version of the 1st ability.  He cases it about every 10-15s and it will hit everyone.  When he casts this he says“Tempest”. It is not interruptable
  •  3rd ability he uses at about 75%, 50%, and 25%.  He says “Divideness” and splits into 3 mobs.  There are 2 images of himself that are slightly darker in color and will die pretyt quickly, so dps focus attacks on them when they spawn.  Also, when they spawn, all 3 start casting spells so a LOT of damage goes out.  I would recommend the tank use Guardian stance and the healer get ready to do Prayer of Faith.  Be sure you kill the adds before you send the boss over the next 25%

2nd Waves

  • -Again, there are 3 sets of waves, and you have absolutly NO time between killing the boss and the next waves starting to come, so BE READY!  The waves are a mix of 4 types of Ghosts, Gladiators, Hunters, Mages, and Priests.  Yes, the priests will heal, but not too much.  The Hunters also summon ghost wolves that die really fast.  I  would recommend on the last wave leave 1 mob alive and let the healer rebuff and heal Tharrath back to 100%
  •   1st wave generally comes from the West but sometimes East, 3 random ghost mobs
  •   2nd wave comes from the opposite side as the 1st wave and is 3 random ghost mobs
  •   3rd wave comes from the Northwest, and is 4 random ghost mobs

BOSS – Kermode
Hathraad has 3 abilities and is probably the easiest boss if the tank uses his cooldowns (Alertign shout, Guardian stance, and Counter stance)to help minimize damage while your healer is silenced

  •  1st ability is Soul Growl AOE which he seems to use every 15s and silences everyone within 30m radius  for 3 seconds and deals moderate damage
  •  2nd ability is Deafening Roar which also is uses about every 15s and stuns everyone in a 30m radius for 2 seconds
  •  3rd ability, name unknown but let’s call it Enrage, activates on the boss at around 20% +/- and Kermode will grow very large and start hitting harder.  With tank cooldowns, and good gear, this isn’t very difficult.  If the tank’s HP is low or he isn’t fulling specced Guardian, then goodluck  Tongue

3rd Waves

  • -There are 5 waves this time and come fast.  Again there is no time between killing a boss and the first wave coming.  There are 3 new types of mobs in these waves and random mobs from the first 2 sets of waves.  The new mobs are Flame Striker, Rock-Wings Assassin (gargoyle), and Lava-Skin Burner.  They will do an ankle slash ability and a stun to make moving around difficult
  •   1st wave comes from the Northwest and has 3 random mobs
  •   2nd wave comes from the East and has 3 random mobs
  •   3rd wave comes from the East and has 3 random mobs (usually a Lava-Skin Burner and Flame Striker in it)
  •   4th wave comes from the West and is 4 random mobs (usually 1 Flame Striker in it)
  •   5th wave comes from the Northwest and is 4 random mobs (usually 1 Lava-Skin Burning it in)

BOSS – Alr-Rahjil
Alr-Rahjil has 4 abilities and is a pretty difficult boss.  A LOT of healing is required, and a LOT of dps.  He steals health from random people so a good amount of dps is needed to even kill him.  Be ready to do a lot of moving around and ready to release and run back to the instance if you die.  Some people like to tank him near the entrance to the zone, but it an cause some people lag because of the water effects.  Plus there is less space to move out of the aoe zones

  •  1st ability has an unknown name, let’s call it Earthquake.  He says “Tremble in Terror” when he casts it and it will create a large black circle on the ground that deals significant damage every 2 seconds that you stand in it.  It also slows you down, so be on your toes and get out FAST.  He casts it every 15s or so.  He casts this large (about 10m radius) earthquake under a random player or on Tharrath
  •  2nd ability has an unknown name, let’s call it Life Steal.  It targets a random player and on heroic at least steals about 1500-1600 health.  He casts it every 10-15s.  It also seems that it heals him for more than the amount stolen, maybe 2x?
  •  3rd ability is called Ignite and is cast about every 15s on a random player, maybe on Tharrath too.  It deals damage every 3 seconds for 15 seconds.  150 damage per tick on regular and 400 on Legendary.  This is nearly 1/2 of your health as a non tank over the full duration.  Keep Restore cast on each player to help counter this a bit.
  •  4th ability has an unknown name, let’s call it NOVA.  This is ability is critical.  He casts it between 15-20% health.  It will kill anyone within 30m radius, so TURN and RUN like hell.  A tank with pretty good HP 6000+ can with full HP use Guardian stance and stand and take the damage.  NOVA will still deal several thousand to the tank.  Alr-Rahjil will say “Out, brief life” when he starts to cast the spell.  It takes him about 2-3s to cast the spell

I hope this was helpful.  I will get some picture added, as soon as my server comes back up and I can get back in there  Grin

To Gameloft – I would like to say THANK YOU! for such a fun and challenging dungeon.  I would like to offer up just 2 suggestions.  

  •  Please delay the first wave after each boss for at least 30 seconds so we can rebuff, talk about loot etc.
  •  Please add a level 60 daily quest to Tharrath that pays out about 5 gold.  The new potions are VERY expensive and each death at level 60 is 80s.  The trash that drops in Legendary is the same as on regular except maybe magecloth or random uncommon/rare items.  So I only get a few copper/silver for selling the trash items

Zone Map – crossed Swords represent where waves spawn from.  West, NW, and East are where waves spawn.  NE is where all the bosses come from

    Just have been told this guide was submitted here AND over on the official forums. Adding the link to it at the top if people want to check out the discussion!

  • Exxodusx

    Or rather actually make the loot drops worth the dungeon:
    •Normal- Blue items only 35+ extremely rare purple items 40+.
    •Legendary- Blue items 55-60 rare purples 60.

    And make the majority of these drops unbound.

  • GFD

    Thumbs up RML !!

  • Sunberg

    Anyone know where the Dragon Library is? Where Tarrath tells you to meet him after you have finished the normal dungeon. Thanks!

  • Iiiparryiii

    This quest shouldnt even be available for level 25. I went in with two level 59’s and we still failed. Not challenging but impossible.

  • guest

    so is this the only dungeon in the game? what level do you have to be to get into it?

  • Ranftjustin

    which boss on legendary drops strong defenders chest piece?

  • awsome

    i hear that on legendary mode in relics key you can get rune armor which i think is alot better than paying 15$ for rune armor. just wondering if you could put what bosses drop what

  • john doe

    lol btw when doing al rajhil save ur prayer and use ring of healing every time when he uses NOVA he will fly into the air at that time ur healer has to pray not ring and everyone will survive ( he only casts NOVA once thru out yo battle ) :p

  • FeyFey

    here are soo silly guys not every blue armor is rune armor :/

  • TaRoOoK,TaRoOOoK

    Now Tank can silence NOVA By using ankle slash when he gets up 😉

  • Christy Gruetzner

    What happens if Tharrath dies? I went in at level 29 and tried to kill the crocs/turtles before I talked to Tharrath and they killed both of us. I went back in and killed the ready of the crocs, but Tharrath was laying dead in the ground and disappeared.
