Prophecy of Ro- Level 70 Trap/Aura Guide

Postby Vendian » Thu Feb 23, 2006 11:00 am

The purpose of this is to give everyone an idea on how to get your trap/aura for level 70.

Location: North Ro (6879, - 1347) in a broken stone building
Quest Giver: Tak'Valnkor
Quest Name: "The Burning Prince" arc
Goal: Much like DoDh this is a progressive spell arc, the third of which results in your 70 aura/trap, however only one person needs to do the first two, you can enter the third having done neither of the other and get the reward. Need a group, and person who gets the mission must do turn ins.


1. Talk to Tak'Valnakor @ 6880, -1350 in North Ro. Get task.

2. Go into The Ruins of Takish-Hiz (static) there you will locate Krylin @ -410, -40 inside of a overturned tower. Hail him to open your instance in the Root of Ro.

3. The Root of Ro Instance entrance is to the right of the zone in, along the wall. It is a cave located at: 640, -600 It is HIGH on the wall. Once inside you must collect 5 different tablet items.
-- The first 4 are random on your way to the boss.
-- The Boss is melee, yellow to 70, max hit around 1300, drops the final tablet item.

4. Return the Tablets to Tak'Valnakor in North Ro to recieve mission 2.

-- All other mobs than the ones mentioned above are Dark Blue / White
-- Treants have a abilitiy called Bark Mulch, this is moderate DoT with Snare. MR-200.
-- Wind Models have an 1200 AE DD, which is FR-400 known as Fire Blast.


1. Talk to Tak'Valnakor @ 6880, -1350 in North Ro. Get task.

2. Go to to Queen Tal'Yaliz @ 5950, -2080 in North Ro. She is in a Tower near the Scarb platform. Talking to her ports your group into an instanced version of Ruins of Takish-Hiz.

3. Hunt down 5 Priests. They are yellow con and hit around 1500. They have *alot* of hitpoints. All other mobs are Green/Blue.
-- Priest One: Located at Building with enterance at 100, -960
-- Priest Two: Located at Building with enterance at 260, -460
-- Priest Three: Located at Building with enterance at 130, 100
-- Priests Four and Five are inside the Palace located at: -13, 135

To reach Priest 4: Enter the Palace, clear left. Go down that passage, there is a staircase on your left. Go down the stairs, there is a room to the East. Enter that room. Fouth Priest is in a side room on the left hand side.

To Reach Priest 5: Exit the East room where you just in for Priest 4, ther eis a hallway ahead of you, and Archs on the Left and Right. Priest 5 is on the second floor of the Right Arch.

4. After slaying the 5 Priests the Prince will spawn in the Amptheater area. Appox Loc is 20, -300. Prince hits 1850ish, but not that fast.

He casts Death's Beckon every 60 seconds (single target high powered lifetap) Tank reported it landing for 1800ish. DR - 200.

He also has a AE Curse, which is Curse of Silir. This is a MR -250 check DoT with a trigger. After 30 seconds (and the spell wears off) it fires Curse of Ice Trigger and you take 8000 Damage unresistable. I am not sur ethe number of curse counters as Lucy does not list the exact number - it says unknown calucation.

Thus - it is very important to Resist or Cure (RGC!) the curse as it lands. You can not let it run 30 seconds. (For those Fimilar with Bloodeye and Arch-Magus, similar effect, just its not a DT).

5. After slaying The Prince, talk to Queen Tal'Yaliz in North Ro.

-- Earth Elementals in this mission cast Stupefy, This effect is MR - 200, lowers Wisdom and Int by 150 (thus decreasing the amount of available mana you have) and lowers Endurance by 200 / tick. The effect lasts 2 minutes. It should be able to be removed with Radiant Cure or better.


1. Talk to Tak'Valnakor @ 6880, -1350 in North Ro. Get task.

2. Go to to Queen Tal'Yaliz @ 5950, -2080 in North Ro. She is in a Tower near the Scarb platform. The player who talks to her will receive the Queen's Crown. Talking to her ports your group into an instanced version of Ruins of Takish-Hiz.

3. Loot 3 NO DROP items: The Scepter, The Wand and The Signet.
All Trash mobs in this mission are blue unless otherwise noted.

The first chest is located in this building: 100, -960 The chest is on the second floor and guarded by 3 Yellow Con Elves. Loot Sceptre.

The scepter is located in this building: 260, -460 This is in a chest also on the second floor - again guarded by 3 yellow con Elves. Loot: Wand

The Priest is in the Temple. Temple Enterance is located at -13, 135

To reach the Final Priest clear inside the Temple to the left. Go down that passage. On your left you will see a staircase. Take the Left Staircase. There is a Archway on your Left - this is the one you want.

Inside the room there is a ramp to the second floor. The Final Priest is up there. He is guarded by 2 Yellow Con Sand Elf Clerics.

Kill The adds and charge the Priest.

During the Fight 80/40 percent He calls for help. I noticed on track adds did spawn, but they did not spawn on us, nor did they charge us from this location. This may be bugged.

Kill the Priest and Loot the Signet.
NOTE: You need need to make your way back to the zone in and zone into South Ro.

4. Once in South Ro, zone into the non-instanced verison of Ruins of Takish-Hiz. You need to make your way to the Portal to the Elddar Forest located at 103, -177. It appears as a Sand Storm. You need to enter the Elddar Forest.

5. Once in Elddar Forest make your way to location: 116, -54 (First building on the Left when you zone in).

Have the person who did the looting hand all 4 items to Maryin Tak'Yaliz.

Recieve Spell: ~!

Chest will spawn beside Maryin with loot for completing the mission.

Credit goes to the Druid Grove for this walkthrough
two possibilities at the moment.
1)arc is bugged leaving some melee unable to get their trap/aura
2)there is another arc for said melee
The Key to the Past and The Burning Prince should now hand out an appropriate reward.

guessing that may have fixed the above issue, unsure though
