Battle in Tarir

Battle in Tarir is a map meta event that occurs in Auric Basin. Mordrem have attacked the city of Tarir and the Exalted are defending their city using various trials to find warriors to help them in their defense of Tarir before Mordrem breach its sanctum.

Meta events[edit]

Complete the Trial by Fire pre-event challenges to earn Enchanted Armor(s) for the battle ahead.

Defeat all of the octovines in the Battle in Tarir within a co-ordinated 2 minute time window. The time window starts when the first octovine reaches zero health. If the time window expires then the octovines regenerate some health and the group event mechanic has to be repeated until successful, or the global event timer runs out and the event fails.

Tier Text

The Exalted were not well prepared. The price for victory was too high.

There was no hope. A noble sacrifice had to be made to save Tarir.

Defenders fought valiantly, but a sacrifice was needed to protect Tarir.

Defenders of Tarir have saved the city. The Exalted rejoice.
