Sleeper's Tomb

What rests within this tomb? Only the bravest of adventurers should dare to enter this new zone in mid-September for new group/raid content!

Yay! What will we find now the warders are dead and sleeper long gone?

If I recall from Eq1, the Tomb was filled with constructs and such. though Kerafyrm's escape prolly put a dent in the security..it was also a VERY secure place from a dragon's standpoint, and I coudl see him using it as a makeshift base of operations when he began the assault on Skyshrine/ the place he retreated to when the Crusaders got there before launching his attack and sacking ToV.

it may still be a communication hub/base for the Awakened cult, and I imagine it's probably considered sacred to them and certainly not unprotected by members there of..I'm hoping we'll find out exactly what the bargain was that led to Grendish betraying the other Crusaders..or what Kera's intentions are with Theer's power.

though, with Kera gone. this maybe where Mayong/Tserrina have been delving into for more information of the Age's End prophecy/Shissar calendar. So we may see Mayong again. find out what happened between him and Tserrina.

I think there are lots of stormwing drakes outside it at the moment so you would think that it is being occupied by sleepers forces but then again they are outside!

I am not sure what wonders will await us inside but I would love it if mistmoore made an appearance like you said!

Plenty of ideas. One might assume it's been redug by one of Kerafrym's generals. We defeated Vyskudra's invading force, so only 3 of them left. No doubt we'll be defeating them all over time before the big battle with Kerafrym.

Considering that the Western Wastes are no more...probably a colony of Chettari feasting on dead warders and Zlandacar who got a very sudden and rude eviction notice from the Awakened.

Well, more likely is an undead army of 65 adventurers who failed to take down the sleeper plus the undead warders who failed in their responsability to contain the sleeper. Maybe some treasure huntering giants looking for things left in the tomb too.

Wonder if there will be any chronomagery! Would be nice to go back and witness the awakening of kerafyrm

Level 60 adventurers. The level cap wasn't raised to 65 until Planes of Power, and by then the Sleeper had been awoken on pretty much every standard ruleset server.

I'm expecting a bunch of Awakened minions to fight, but I am also hoping form something new and original that takes me by surprise. We'll see!

sleepers tomb was in eastern wastes, and can already visut the collapsed doorway. the pit of the awakend.

am guessing will be the constructs... and quite a few ghosts.

I'm very aware of that. It would be kinda difficult to explain visiting the Dragon Necropolis where Zlandcar and the Chetari were living in EQ1 now that we have a book that says the Western Wastes has been reduced to the Temple of Veeshan and nothing more.

Kinda wondering a little about that nothing more. Bare rock? Water? It can't just be floating in air.

It's probably ToV, a little stretch of land out from that for patrols/getting airborne to defend themselves...then an long empty space of just water until it reaches the next solid portion of velious.

I think though we'll see Mayong or Tserrina in Sleeper's Tomb. it's a perfect place for Mayong to be studing more on the Age's End prophecy. since he's not fond of dragonkin, so Skyshrine would be out..he'd never tolerate being among them as an ally. but if the Awakened cult are there...well killing them is good for fighting Kera. so no need to be diplomatic and non-aggressive with those dragons

I thought half of Velious was raised into the sky. So should Western Wastes, if melted completely, be high in the clouds or something, or rather whats left of it? My assumption is that Western Wastes will be in the game, but completely different then what we would imagine due to its obliteration from Kera. That or it went out like Dagnors Cauldron and ToV is connected to a piece of land like the Estate of Unrest is.

the book we have states that Kera had elemental dragons in his service collapse the western wastes into the sea, and that collapse killed many young dragons and older dragons that were starting to head to ToV to take it back from Kera. so when/if we see it, it's probably like Unrest. a section of land where ToV rests and maybe some breathing room out and then just the ocean/air.

we also don't know exactly how much of the continent the Upheaval actually moved. it could very well have been half of Wakening lands and Skyshrine along that got heaved, since I htink they hint that was a dragonic action as well. so it might have been just them moving/defending Skyshrine from Kael.

Supposedly the 4 warders are still in there, restraining a big prismatic dragon.

Seriously.

Guess we'll see what's up with that soon enough.

Given that the screenshots clearly seem to show a chronoportal, I suspect we're going back to the period either just before, or during, Kerafyrm's escape...

Its before he breaks through - altho you can see him trying to break out of his prison but getting subdued by a powerful ritual of the four warders, and while the warders got about Ikatiar-size Kerafyrm is ab-so-lu-te-ly huge - I`d say at least 1,5x the size of Tarinax, maybe bigger.

Probably, Jorlak is the go-to NPC for this.

The Sleeper’s Tomb, which opens next Tuesday, offers two variations:

  • Sleeper’s Tomb: The Awakening (group)
  • Sleeper’s Tomb: A Temporal Leap (raid)

Well the Warders are there, Kerafyrm's there..

I find the banchees and that Erudite that's in there kind of out of place. Since when would they be there, considering its a place made by Dragons to restrain Kerafyrm.

What's interesting, however, is the other Chronoportal teleporting in the Drakes and Wyverns that you fight in Skyshrine, i.e. those that are allied with the Awakened.

Wonder what's up with that.

I think he's right about the same size as tarinax.

He's really ugly though, not really 'prismatic'.

I considered the banshees and such to be the remenants of those that had tried, and failed, to breach/plunder the Tomb.

Kerafyrm I think is bigger then Tarinax....and I liked his look. he's got a mean, cruel, vicious look to him, even though he's not 'glass' like, like he was in EQ1. he's got red/blue markings. and who knows what he might look like without the 4 Warder's powers working to contain him. (he might have a more 'prismatic' look. liek the warder's powers give his skin a 'darker/cooler' look..akin to lava cooling?)

as to the chronoportal in the back. seeing as how Skyshrine has chronomancers, and Dracur was nearly overrun, it's not a far stretch to think that some of the Malignant Droag have learned about it and decided to try and aid Kerafyrm, or make his break from the Tomb come quicker.

maybe they think getting him out sooner would mean he'd be that much stronger when they assault Skyshrine. Remember Yalniak even speaks of it saying that while Kera was still alot stronger then any dragon (save maybe the combined might of the Crusaders) he was considerably weaker then he was due to his long slumber.

so...'waking' Kera earlier in his slumber = stronger Kera against Skyshrine, which would mean a quicker fall or the complete sacking of Skyshrine before the Crusaders coudl be mustered.

Just about every mob and NPC in that zone is a direct copy over from EQ1, including the erudite and the banshees.  I have no idea what their original story was though.

That's too bad. I never got to explore the dungeon proper itself. Everytime I was always just summoned by a mage to fight the warders and then let them respawn.

I was there when the Rallos Zek server killed Kerafyrm though.

Anyway, Meaghan is right. Those mobs do exist in Kerafyrm's Lair. Banshee, Erudites (two of them (from what I looked on the bestiary)
