    A Dark Kyrian construct, powered by Anima and honed to a razor edge. The Praetorian’s movements are so quick she can seem to disappear before players’ eyes, appearing behind them or in cover, and can cut through the air such that she generates tornados in her wake.

    • Overview: Ventunax, the Dark Kyrian Praetor, is honed to such a razor’s edge, and moves with such speed, that she leaves [Shadowhirls] in her wake. Avoid the tornados emitted from each [Shadowhirl] when Ventunax makes a move.
      When depleted of Anima energy, Ventunax draws in [Shadowhirls], reabsorbing them and regaining her energy.

      [PH]Oryphrion is the firepower in the Paragon of Loyalty’s vanguard. The Dark Colossus has dominated the invasion into the city with their Anima fueled artillery, and now fiercely defends the font of power before the Archon’s seat.

      • Overview: Oryphrion spends Anima to use their abilities. Standing in an [Anima Field] will empower Oryphrion and remove the Anima cost of abilities. Players who stand in the field will be afflicted with [Volatile Anima].
        Once Oryphrion hits 0 Anima, they will be afflicted with [Drained] and will then [Recharge Anima].
        • Overview: Avoid pools of Concentrated Doubt while recovering framents of the Archon’s life force as you try to defeat the Paragon of Loyalty.

          • Tanks:
            Move the Paragon of Loyalty as needed to allow your teammates to avoid pools of Lingering Doubt or to pick up the Fragments of Life easily.
            Hitting the Paragon of Loyalty with the Archon’s spear will inflict a large amount of damage to her.
            Slipstream can cause you fall off of the platform.

          • Healers:
            When the Paragon of Loyalty activates the Anima Font your party will take a large amount of sustained damage.
            Grab the Archon’s fragments of life to restore her health.
            Slipstream can cause you fall off of the platform.

          • Damage Dealers:
            Depleting the Anima Shield quickly will end the high damage of unleashed anima and allow you to hurl the Archon’s spear.
            Grab the Archon’s fragments of life to restore her health.
            Hitting the Paragon of Loyalty with the Archon’s spear will inflict a large amount of damage to her.
            Slipstream can cause you fall off of the platform.

          • Stage 1:
            Players fight the Paragon of Loyalty on the ground.

            • Seed of Doubt: Creates zones of Concentrated Doubt around random enemies.
            • Lingering Doubt: Infects the target’s mind with doubt for 15204 Arcane damage over 15 sec. When this effect ends, a pool of Concentrated Doubt at the victim’s feet.
          • Stage 2:
            At 70 and 40 percent health remaining, the Paragon of Loyalty tries to Activate the Anima Font.

            • Activate: The caster activates the Anima Conduit, inflicting 1520 Arcane damage to all players every 4 sec.
            • Fragment of Life: Returning the fragment restores 5% of the Archon’s life force and grants all players an Archon’s Boon.
            • Anima Shield: The energies of the Anima Font shield the caster from damage. While shielded, the caster will continue to unleash the energies of the Anima Font on the Archon.

              Successfully depleting this shield will interrupt the Paragon of Loyalty, causing her to lose her grip on the Archon’s Spear as she is sent to the skies.

          • Stage 3:
            Once the Paragon of Loyalty finishes channeling the energies of the Anima Font, she takes to the skies for a brief period of time as she causes any players, Concentrated Doubt, and Fragments of Life to move across the platform.

            • Slipstream: Strong winds pull all players and anima off the front of the platform.
            • Backdraft: Strong winds push all players and anima to the back of the platform.
