In order khổng lồ enter Midnight at Skypetal Plains, you must have sầu completed Act 4, Chapter 31. You must also be in a 12 person alliance, which is comprised of of two teams of six people.This is not the same as 24 man zones in the past (Beastbog, Grimhorn Wilds). This is more lượt thích a 12 man dungeon, where only the people in your buổi tiệc nhỏ can enter, & you start it from the beginning.In order to make a 12 man alliance, you simply need lớn invite someone to a full 6 man buổi tiệc ngọt, và you will be prompted to lớn create an alliance.

Party effects such as buffs và iframes only work in each individual các buổi party, therefore, you need khổng lồ consider each party’s composition. An optimal 6 person buổi tiệc nhỏ composition would include a Warlochồng, a Kung Fu Master or Assassin, a source of a các buổi party iframe (Force Master/Destroyer, Blade Master/Blade Dancer, or Assassin/Summoner can all fulfill this role), và a healer (Soul Fighter or Summoner). A Force Master/Destroyer specifically is preferred for phases 5 & 6. These will all make the kill faster or smoother, but none are required.Spawning Sacred LongguiWhen you first enter the raid, your maps will look like this:

You will have sầu infinite windwalk duration in this zone.Each of the moons represents an encampment. Each encampment has one mushroom that is invulnerable, surrounded by 6 grassquatches, and surrounding those are a large amount of small yeti creatures, similar lớn the mobs in Twisted Grimhorn.

This is Sacred Longgui’s rage bar. You fill this up by killing mobs around the area. Each mob gives a set amount of points towards the rage bar, and the amount of points required goes up with each stage. The optimal methods to lớn fill the bar will be explained in this guide.

These gates are scattered throughout the area. Running through one gives you a 30 second movement speed increase.
Whenever you kill one of the small yeti mobs, the Moonlight Poison debuff is applied lớn you that reduces your healing by 5% & your max HP.. by 3%, negates natural regeneration, can staông chồng up to 20 times, và is permanent until you leave the dungeon. Killing a Grassquatch will grant the Moonlight Poison Neutralization buff for 10 seconds which dispels all stacks of the debuff, grants immunity to lớn the debuff, và gives healing over time. When all of the mobs around a mushroom are killed, both small và large, the mushroom will become vulnerable, và you can kill it.When the mushroom is killed, it drops an egg, a hole appears in the ground, và one of the three minibosses will spawn. Piông xã up the egg and place it in the hole lớn spawn a mob from the hole, the next camp in your area, & one of the three bosses.
Worthless Bulbari, gives few points to the bar và nothing else, just ignore và move sầu to lớn the next camp. Far & away the most common result.
Treasure Plant, doesn’t give sầu many points, but it can drop a locked soulshield box. Only the các buổi tiệc nhỏ of the person who picks up the box can bid on the box.
Spiny Woodfikết thúc, gives some points to lớn the bar, killing it grants the Spiny Woodfiend Energy buff which makes you immune to the Moonlight Poison debuff for 5 minutes.
The most important sự kiện is spawning the three bosses. When you put an egg in the hole, a random boss will spawn that is not currently alive sầu. Each location spawns a specific trùm.
The Thrasher will spawn in the north, the Horned (Minoutaur) will spawn in the east, và the Shambling (Ironclad) will spawn to the west. Killing any of these bosses gives 1600 points towards the rage bar, & lightning will strike every one of the adds in every camp, delling massive sầu damage (one shotting everything up khổng lồ stage 5, one shotting all the small adds for every stage) & stunning the adds for a period of time.Killing the Horned will also cleanse the Moonlight Poison across the raid, và killing Shambling will also heal the raid.
After killing a minitrùm, there is a small chance for a rat to spawn. The rat can drop a soulshield box, again, only the people in the tiệc ngọt who pick it up can bid on it.
Small chance for the Magma Woodfield to spawn here after killing one of the three main bosses, fights similarly lớn a Terror from Soulstone Plains. It will disappear after 1-2 minutes if not engaged. Successfully killing will cause Mites lớn spawn at each of the trees.

Once the rage bar fills the Sacred Longgui will spawn. Each of the trees will spawn a dragon pulse that leads bachồng lớn the center.This process repeats between every Sacred Longgui phase. All the minibosses will despawn, but any cleared camps will stay cleared.After you kill a phase of Sacred Longgui, there is a chance for a golden pig lớn spawn.
The golden spider can spawn whenever you kill a normal spider. Killing the golden spider gives 10,000 points to the rage bar.Killing the Sacred LongguiThere are 6 phases khổng lồ the trùm, between each phase you need khổng lồ go through the spawning procedure. Phases 2, 4 and 6 each have sầu a dynamic quest involved, which gives you a dynamic quest box. Every phase of Sacred Longgui adds new mechanics to lớn the trùm, increases its HPhường, & gives it an enrage.Phase 1:
HP: 7,150,000Enrage: NoneCC Bars: ImmuneNo special attacks, just a standard attack rotation.Stomp attaông chồng, can be either stomp forward with one foot, or Sacred Longgui will turn sideways, và first stomp in front of him, and then stomp behind hyên. Both of these attacks can be blocked.One of two possible attacks:Neông xã swipe in a cone in front of the Sacred Longgui. Can be blocked..Bite attaông chồng, bends nechồng down và grabs the tank. If successful will chew and then throw the tank away. Must be iframed by the tank, otherwise they will be thrown far enough away khổng lồ thua kém aggro.One of two possible special attacks:Nechồng slam. Will extend his neck & slam it down in a line in front of hyên ổn. Will sover anyone hit by this flying backwards. Unblockable, must be iframed or avoided.Spin. Will curl into lớn his shell and rapidly spin, dealing damage over several hits & knocking back on the last hit. Can be blocked.Circles of Death. Will create circles around hlặng that deal damage after a few seconds. Unblockable, must iframe or avoid.If at any point in time the tank is out of melee distance, the Sacred Longgui will jump on them. This will bởi AoE damage at the landing point, và knockback everyone hit by it. Unblockable, must be iframed or avoided.Phase 2:HP: 11,144,000Enrage: NoneCC Bars: ImmuneAt 70% và 30% of the boss’s HP, he will jump to the center of the arena, emit a 16 meter unblockable AoE that stuns, & the ground will start emitting poisonous gas. This will constantly reapply the Poison Cloud debuff khổng lồ everyone within a 100 meter radius that does damage.
Every phase increases the number of stacks of this debuff, one staông xã at phase 2, two at phase 3, three at phase 4, etc. The only way to lớn remove this is by watering the plants, which shall be explained below.How to Water the Plants
From phase 2 onwards ,5 groups of 6 brown Gnarlox mobs will spawn around Sacred Longgui as soon as you engage in the locations listed.
Attacking the bulbari will cause it to lớn disappear, & a Grassquatch to appear where the bulbari was.
When you kill the grassquatch, it drops a watering can, và after a short while the gnarloxes will respawn.
Around the edges of Sacred Longgui’s area, there will be plants that look lượt thích venus flytraps by the gnarlox packs.
These plants can be watered by the watering can. Every watered plant reduces the number of poison stacks by one.For phases 2 và 3, this poison is usually ignored, it can easily be outhealed until phase 4. Phase 4 and on, the poison is cleansed because it’s too much to lớn ignore at that point. Detailed strategies will be gone over later in the guide.Phase 3:HP: 16,573,500Enrage: NoneCC Bars: ImmuneStarting at this phase, the tank should remix the Sacred Longgui’s attack pattern every 3rd attachồng.From phase 3 và onwards, the Sacred Longgui’s 4th attaông chồng in their pattern can be devastating to the raid, causing potential deaths, and even a wipe. To prevent this attack, after the Sacred Longgui does the neông xã slam or spin attack, the tank should move sầu 14m away from the Sacred Longgui lớn force it to lớn jump khổng lồ them, which will also rephối its attachồng pattern. Once the tank see the Sacred Longgui start lớn gather itself lớn jump, they can move sầu baông xã to melee distance so that it jumps in place.Note: a special attaông chồng (poison cloud or the poison swamp described later) does not reset Sacred Longgui’s attachồng pattern, despite the Sacred Longgui jumping to start it. The tank must keep this in mind when considering when they should force a pattern remix.Moving Circles of DeathInstead of his normal circles of death move sầu, Sacred Longgui will instead vì chưng a barrage of circles. The first one will have sầu a long warning time lượt thích normal, but will be followed up by 4 additional sets of circles in random spots around him. If this attachồng is not prevented by the tank, players should either spam iframes, or use a tiệc ngọt iframe khổng lồ prevent the circles from killing their party.Poison SwampFrom phase 3 onwards, the Sacred Longgui will add a new special attaông xã. In phase 3, at 80% và 40%, this message will show up.
The Sacred Longgui will appear lớn eat something off its baông chồng, và then create a poisonous swamp around him that deals damage khổng lồ everyone in its area. The tank needs lớn baông chồng off, so the Sacred Longgui jumps at them và moves out of the swamp area, otherwise melee characters will not be able to hit the Sacred Longgui without taking massive damage. After several seconds, the poison swamp will disappear.There is a method khổng lồ prsự kiện the poison swamp from appearing. If enough flowers around the edge are watered (two for phase 3, three for phase 4, etc.) in the time between Sacred Longgui eating the poisonous herb, & it creating the swamp, then instead of creating the poisonous swamp,, it will instead create a buff zone.
While you are standing in the AoE, the buff is constantly stacked. It lasts for 2 minutes, và gives you 3% bonus Attaông chồng nguồn, stacking up lớn 50 times. This buff is generally considered unnecessary & not used, unless you are doing a phase that has enrage such as phase 5 or phase 6.Phase 4:
HP: 32,021,000Enrage: NoneCC Bars: ImmuneCounterattackStarting in phase 4, the Sacred Longgui will add another attack to lớn its basic attachồng rotation, and this one is the most dangerous of all of them. After his neck slam/spin attachồng, he will retreat into his shell, & as soon as any attachồng hits hlặng, he shall bởi a 16 meter AoE around hlặng, dealing massive damage khổng lồ everyone near hyên ổn & knocking them baông xã 50 meters. It is extremely important for the tank khổng lồ remix the Sacred Longgui’s attaông chồng pattern before this attaông xã. The attaông xã itself has very little warning, & if it is not iframed or prevented, it will likely kill a portion of the raid, và cause trouble for the rest.Boss SummonStarting in Phase 4, the poison swamp phase is changed from 80% và 40% khổng lồ 90%, 50% & 10%, và an additional mechanic is added.
After he summons the poison swamp, he will jump at the tank, và proceed to vày a spin attack toward the farthest person, the number of spins increases in later phases (phase 4 has one spin, phase 5 has two spins, etc.). When he starts the spin attaông xã, he will summon one of the bosses that you kill lớn fill the rage bar (Thrasher, Minotaur, Shambling, Magma), but with a few caveats.These bosses are unrootable, their CC bars are rarely vulnerable, và they have special attacks lượt thích the terrors in Soulstone Plains. The Retro Sheet by Praetor19 has all of the possible special attacks listed under the “special skills tab”. They will aggro onlớn the tank when they spawn, unless someone else draws their aggro.The spiders around the raid zone will drop website balls, similar khổng lồ the spiders from Gloomdross Incursion. These website balls can be used to immobilize the bosses that spawn for 15 seconds. This is the only way khổng lồ prevent the bosses from just moving khổng lồ the tank, and if they start using their special skills in the middle of the fight, it can cause the fight to become a mess.
These are the locations where the spiders spawn. The usual strategy is to lớn have sầu one person go kill the northern or southern spider before the miniboss is summoned, and be responsible for webbing the miniboss when it spawns.Phase 5HP: 47,920,000Enrage: 7:00CC Bars: ImmuneEnrageStarting at Phase 5, the Longgui will enrage and wipe the raid if it is not killed within 7 minutes.RoarAt 70% và 30%, before the Sacred Longgui emits the poison cloud, he will bởi a 16 meter roar. This roar will vị 9 hits over about 5 seconds, and applies stun on each hit. Either a Force Master/Destroyer needs khổng lồ sheath this, or buổi tiệc nhỏ members attacking need to lớn spam iframes (if they are not killing the adds on the edges). This can be Second Wind, so a common tactic without a Force Master/Destroyer is khổng lồ use a shorter các buổi tiệc nhỏ iframe, tank a hit and use tab escape & other iframes to avoid the roar damage.Phase 6:
HP: 61,560,000Enrage: 7:00CC Bars: ImmuneAcidWhen Sacred Longgui emits the poison cloud at 70% & 30%, he will also create a second damage over time debuff called Acid. This is cleared when all 5 flowers are watered.Second MinibossWhen the Sacred Longgui creates the normal poison swamp, he will sumtháng 2 minibosses instead of 1. Split the raid evenly to giảm giá khuyến mãi with both before they start causing trouble.RewardsThe rewards from the Sacred Longgui are ultimately the legendary Soul Shields. The 3 & 8 phối effects are chất lượng for each class & the stats as well as phối effects can be found in Praetor19"s cheatsheet, and each individual class for the chất lượng effects.When you clear a phase, you get a locked box (normal keys khổng lồ open). On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, the boss will drop 2 boxes. This is what is contained in the phase 6 box.
The box is guaranteed to lớn contain one piece of Lunar Twilight Flower. Each phase’s box can contain more grass. 20 grass can be combined into lớn a Lunar Twilight Flower, which is the currency used in the raid’s cửa hàng.The box also has a chance khổng lồ give you a Soul Shield box, the pieces depending on the phase. Phase 1 can give sầu 1-3, phase 2 can give sầu 1-4, phase 3 can give 1-5, phase 4 can give 1-6, & phase 5 can give sầu 1-8.
As stated earlier, the raid shop’s currency is flowers. They can be used to lớn buy outfits, Soul Shield boxes, Stones of Wisdom, và Flowers of Lament.FAQQ: How long does it take khổng lồ clear stage 3/4/5/6?A: It’s partially RNG if you get a golden pig or not, and partially how fast you can DPS. Stage 3 should take you about 15 minutes, while Stage 6 can take 30 minutes or more.Q: What classes should be soloing the adds in phase 5+?A: Summoner, Force Master (with dragonchar/shadow grasp for AoE) and Warloông chồng are all good, Destroyer & blade masters can bởi it very well too. The main things you want are someone who can provide good aoe (for the gnarlox camps) & good single target damage while tanking (for the grassquatch).Q: How do I tank?A: watch the videos below.Q: I’m getting extremely low FPS, what can I do khổng lồ fix it?A: Same as everywhere else, hide players, optimize for combat, put settings lớn low.Q: Are there any self damage mechanics for this boss?A: No.Q: What gear is required for this raid?A: Absolutely nothing, you could vị this with gear fresh out of story.
