Khalys-0.jpg

"Achieve ultimate power or cower in the shadows of the old order – no matter what, SHE shall always be your ruler."

Story

As the young sorceress, who secretly taught herself the ancient dark arts, was to be punished for her transgressions, a member of the Nefertari cult came to her rescue and helped her escape by offering her refuge. Within just a short period, she quickly amassed power and climbed to the top of the Nefertari cult.

As the cult's high priestess, Khalys will stop at nothing to establish the Nefertari as Duria's main religion. Anyone seeking opportunity is openly accepted into the cult whereas those who value old traditions are actively condemned and spiritually enslaved.

Those strong enough to openly confront Khalys are soon exposed to her true colors, and see a deceitful and contemptuousness power-monger, whose body has fallen victim to the harmful powers of Andermagic and has been horribly disfigured. Vipers adorn her pale throat and her hand has been deformed into a grotesque claw which she now uses to cast spells to extinguish the lives of even the strongest of Spellweavers.

Skills[edit | edit source]

Teleport: Khalys teleports to a random location in one of the 8 corners (purple arrows) or to the center of the arena.

Shadow Bolts: Khalys shoots a barrage of 3 homing andermagic bolts that follow the three closest players around the arena. (andermagic & physical damage)

Slash: Khalys performs a melee swing with her claw, dealing damage to players within the arch of her attack. (physical)

Andermagic Flood: Khalys channels a wave of energy that covers almost the entire field, while healing herself for 10 seconds. (andermagic)

Deducts 1000 hitpoints as Andermagic damage (4x per second); Khalys heals 2000 hitpoints per second.

Andermagic Meteor: While channeling her Andermagic Flood, Khalys drops a powerful Meteor that falls onto one of the arena's seals -- after a brief warning delay. Khalys drops her meteor on the seal with most people standing on it.

Clones: After teleporting to a corner of the arena, Khalys conjures 2 identical clones. These clones have much less health than the original Khalys.

Tips & Tactics[edit | edit source]

Khalys room 1.png

Like all other Unique bosses, Khalys is immune from all stuns and other debilitating skills.

Attacking Khalys[edit | edit source]

Recommended groups include at least 1 dragonknight to engage Khalys in melee range and prevent her from attacking the other players in the room. Khalys' attacks cause high levels of damage, so if the "tank" has difficulty maintaining hitpoints for this entire 30 seconds phase, a spellweaver's Watchman (with Mighty Guardian talent) or a well equipped ranger (with his/her Wolf pack) may step in to temporarily relieve the group's tanking player. All other ranged players should attack with their high DPS skills.

Transition[edit | edit source]

As Khalys teleports to the center of the arena, players should quickly head to one of the four circular safety seals; players may also head out of the circular arena and into the immediate hallway. Khalys will be vulnerable during this 5 second transition, so ranged attackers can continue attacking during this brief time.

Central Khalys[edit | edit source]

Khalys, then, casts her global attack, which charges her circular arena with a strong andermagic wave. While channeling this attack, Khalys is immune to damage and will also regain some health. As she completes this charge, players can, again, start directing their attacks toward her central location; these attacks redirect toward her new destination as she teleports to another random corner of her room.

Four powerful healing orbs are located within the arena; try to save the healing orbs for those that find themselves in need of Health.

Parallel World[edit | edit source]

The "tank" player should head directly toward Khalys, while a couple of ranged attackers in the group quickly find and defeat the clones before focusing on Khalys.

During the Andermagic Flood, a powerful Andermagic Meteor will drop on one of the circular seals. The location will be the one with the highest number of individuals, but if the number of players per seal is equal, a random seal will be selected. Prior to using the attack, Khalys turns toward her desired location and a glowing aura surrounds the target seal. Jump/teleport/dance out of that location and on to a neighboring seal.

Players commonly use Essences of Combat (+100%) to shorten the length of battle.
