Introduction – What this guide is—and isn't.

The goal here is to lay out the key mechanics found in Sunspire. While I may touch a little on strategies and tactics and offer some recommendations, that is not the goal of this guide. This is not a "What should I do?" guide, but rather a "What is going on?" guide.


Base Population: General – Non-boss enemies

Base Population: Storm-Themed – Non-boss enemies encountered on Lokkestiiz's side of the temple

Alkosh's Fate – Large Khajiit wielding a staff
  • Aspect of Winter and Chilling Comet: A circular AoE telegraph with a large 7m radius will start to grow on a random player.
    • The AoE takes 4 seconds to form.
    • Once it has fully formed, a Chilling Comet will impact the area; this needs to be blocked.
    • A Frost Well will be left behind at the player's location.
    • The Frost Well does damage to nearby players and can be attacked and destroyed; however, they will despawn upon the death of the Fate that had spawned them.

Alkosh's Will – Large Khajiit wielding a greatsword
  • Furious Sweeps: This ability has a conal AoE cleave and can quickly kill DDs; tanks must make sure that these enemies are always turned away from other players.


Base Population: Fire-Themed – Non-boss enemies encountered on Yolnahkriin's side of the temple

Jode's Fire-Fang

Ruin of Alkosh – Large Khajiit wielding a sword and shield
  • Shield of Decimation: The Ruin of Alkosh gains a damage shield, and while the shield is active, the shield shoots high-damaging fiery projectiles at all players. If a Ruin of Alkosh has a damage shield active, that shield must be broken through to stop the barrage of fire damage.

    Errata – Significant changes/corrections to the guide will be called out here in this section.
    • 2019-05-27: The DoT from the Frozen Prison effect applied by the Frozen Tomb is shieldable. The previous claim that it was not stemmed from a misreading of esologs data during the PTS.
    • 2019-06-26: Added more technical detail about the Storm Fury ability.
    • 2019-10-02: Clarified that spawning Time Wounds in the time-shifted realm requires a stun from a Time Stop. Edited the timing of the Translation Apocalypse to reflect the consensus that it is keyed off the end of the previous Translation Apocalypse channel.
    • 2019-10-09: Added subsection detailing the Tormented Vestige (the anti-resurrection mechanic associated with Soul Tear).
