Please post any feedback, bugs, etc. regarding Eryslai: The Midnight Aerie. There are 2 versions of this zone, [Solo] and [Heroic]. In your posts, please be sure to call out which version of the zone you are discussing.

Thanks!

Solo:
1. The twin fight the one stays perched on the branch outside the green triangle, I jousted to him since he would not come down and died due to being outside the triangle. Was able to kill after rez from merc.

2. Everything is dead and I can't get the last named.

Mobs with quest drops in this zone is not flagged as shared like in previous zone for signature. Ephemeral gust. Makes it very hard for duoing also since it is less drops in one clearing than the 19 needed.

You have to activate the Spectrum Generators on the western edge of Mistral Clearing. I'll add messaging to help point everyone in the right direction.

Ok, well played - had to go back to my elementary school art class for this one. The issue was not messages, they were extremely hard to identify. Now that I know where they are it won't be an issue ever again. I had to leave so I did not finish the zone, but the mob after the rainbow was fun, just concerned on heroic how crowded that place will be.

Bigger concern for me is the twin mobs - is the one supposed to stay on the branch outside the triangle?

Solo - Up the drop rate on the Gusts or make them auto update for both. If you go in with a friend you have to do it twice. Not enough drop for one.

Check that - we did not even get enough for one of us. only 18-19.

Yes, that one stays up top.

And Kaitheel has a fix in for the gusts.

Is there a script in the encounter to actually damage him from inside the triangle, I tried couldn't get line of sight to actually hit him with my bow or cast ascensions on him without being out of range. Finally had to just restart the encounter drop in from above, kill the one on the branch while deathsaving thru the damage, then drop into the triangle. Doesn't seem intended, but not a lot of options for those of us without pets or spells that can't be cast past 35.

So those little circles on the ground for the rainbow connection (thank you Kermit) are really hard to see. I ran by them probably 5 times before I gave up and went to wiki for waypoints. Need to put sparkles or something on them.

Also need to up the drop rate on the eph gusts. I cleared all the trash in the zone and ended at 10/19. Shouldn't need to do this zone more than 1 time for the sig line.

Making them 1 per person per drop like the Fire zone would also be much appreciated. Ran it duo and got 4/19 and 6/19.

Also, the named Prosperion (I think - guy with the little tornados after the Rainbow Connection). The power drain on this tornados is a bit excessive and honestly ...why? I mean Knockbacks and Powerdrains on a mob you can't even dps for awhile? Not great.

On another note, probably need a clue about running the tornados into the trapped person. I just stumbled into it the first time through. Should be a bit more clear as to how to break her free.

Oh and the two ranged birds. The one just hangs out up top out of range. I killed it on a defiler so plenty of ranged. Not sure how my assassin will kill that guy up there.

Ran it just now and only got 10/19 ephemeral gusts. Ran through the zone again with track up to make sure I didn't miss anything and didn't see any more.

same here, ended up 17/19 and just the last named and me in zone (spent 30 minutes running around and tracking, and tracking there is a story of its own without the wisp trail ...)
decided to kill last named, no second portal obviously, just to myrist
another 15 minutes tracking, found 1 more more mob flying high, he dropped one - gave up at 18/19 ... /sigh

Next update:
  • Aelero will go to ground after Velos is defeated
  • The tempests in the Prosperon encounter will drain much less power. (Previous amount was only supposed to be for heroic.)

I had to reset the zone and repeat it to get 19 gusts. (Posted in quest feedback.) The drop rate is too low!

The teleporter at the end of the rainbow bridge can be very hard to see.
The little white teleporter gets lost in the particle effects of the flatform.

Agreed. It took me a while to figure out how to use the teleporter because it was hard to see the wee thing over the platform. This is especially confusing because some teleports are click on the platform with no distinct teleport bit.

Yes, agreed about the Rainbow Spectral Generators. They are very difficult to see, and in fact, I ran past them many times before I found them.

Suggestion: A little poof above them or something to make them noticeable above the foliage would be excellent.

Next update will have a rainbow spotlight on the area where the Spectrum Generators are (once all of them are visible) and the portal on the other side of the rainbow will use a different appearance to be more visible.

As everyone else is saying, need ALOT more body drops for the sig line, this is my 2nd toon thru it, and still this is the only zone with a dual run through due to not enough drops.

That or flag the smaller parrots and spiders for the drops as well, that should help possibly.
I got 8/19 my last run.

so my guildmate is in this zone, and got the message for the Rainbow portal generators. However, he can only see 5 of the 7. 2 are missing.
