Defeat the Ley-Line Anomaly to disperse its destructive energy before it overloads is a level 26, 54, or 56 map-wide event that occurs respectively in Gendarran Fields, Iron Marches, or Timberline Falls. These are areas with overflowing ley line energy, whereas other zones have smaller leaks.

This event spawns 20 minutes after even-numbered hours in server time (UTC) on a fixed cycle through the three zones. Using a Ley-Infused Lodestone will indicate which zone is currently active or will have an event soon.

Walkthrough[edit]

The anomaly will alternate between chase, defend, and attack phases. During a chase players follow the anomaly and use crowd control to break its defiance bar to stop it from running toward new coalescences that spawn in a side event. The coalescences will eventually be absorbed by the anomaly unless players defeat them, causing a magical explosion that will down nearby players. If too many coalescences are absorbed, the anomaly will gain an uncontrollable amount of magic causing a massive magical explosion and the event will fail. Breaking its defiance forces the anomaly to crouch defensively and eject part of its energy as Anomaly Fragments for one minute. Unless players defeat fragments, they will approach the anomaly and give it a stack of Ley-line Accumulation by fusing back with it. At the end of a defense phase, the anomaly will stop creating fragments to attack, becoming vulnerable for a short time. When that time is up, it resumes fleeing, repeating the chase phase.

Notes[edit]

  • It is possible to avoid the damage from the overloaded anomaly's explosions by blocking or using invulnerability.
  • A failed event will leave a stream of ley energy behind that causes Ley-Energy Sickness to nearby players.
  • With the July 26, 2016 patch, upon defeating the orbs that the anomaly splits into have turned blue and grant 1 Unbound Magic.png Unbound Magic upon being touched.
  • It spawns in one of the locations above every 2 hours and spawns in the same map every 6 hours. A Ley-Infused Lodestone will indicate which map it is in or just spawned in.
  • While the location of where the anomaly will spawn is a randomly chosen location out of eight per zone they appear in, the following waypoints are closer to the more popular spawn points:
    • Gendarran Fields (Shiverspur Front)

    • Iron Marches (Sunken Halls of Clarent)
