As players enter the Ruinbringer room from the south, Ruinbringer spawns on the north east side of the room and slowly circles the room in an anti-clockwise direction. At the beginning of the fight, Ruinbringer has both left and right shield generators which must be damaged to destroy them. Once both left and right shield generators are destroyed, Ruinbringer can be damaged directly to defeat it. On the north side of the room are 6 Charr Harpoon Tanks. In order for a tank to be used, 200 supplies have to be spent to repair a tank. Charr Harpoon Tank skills, Electromagical Pulse 2.0 (skill) and Remote Charge (skill) deals significant damage to the Ruinbringer. A major hindrance with damaging the shield generators is that the Ruinbringer is very large and both shield generators can only be damaged from the side they are on. When the Ruinbringer spawns, it's right shield generator faces the north whereas it's left shield generator faces the south. At the start of the fight, players should spread between the north and south sides of the rooms to destroy both shield generators quickly. In the room, a large number of dominion troops and Elite Ice Giants also spawn. The elite ice giant is particularly dangerous as it's body slam attack interrupts in an aoe which will render players vulnerable to Ruinbringer's attacks while interrupted. Once Ruinbringer is defeated, one Enemy Supply Cache and one Frost Legion Chest spawns besides the north east ramp.






Event start
Lady Kasmeer Meade: All right, now - which way to that Frost Legion conversion chamber?
Ember Doomforge: Ash intel says it's, uh...past that tank. And all those Dominion.
Elite Frost Legion Musketeer: Bangar ordered me to keep all intruders out of the conversion chamber!
Elite Frost Legion Musketeer: Unless maybe you want to join us?
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Not my type, thanks. Efram, Ember? How do we stop the big tank?
Efram Greetsglory: First things first. Everyone scatter!
Elite Frost Legion Musketeer: You'd rather run around like skritt than join the toughest legion in Tyria? Fine, have it your way!
Ember Doomforge: Need to get rid of that plating!
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Those cars! We can use the grappling hooks to pull it off!
Destroying a shield generator
Elite Frost Legion Musketeer: Look at you, pitting your puny selves against the mighty Frost Legion! You don't stand a chance!
Lady Kasmeer Meade: You know, he says that, but look at his tank.
Ember Doomforge: Yeah! Don't let up until it's a pile of rivets!
Destroying both shield generators
Elite Frost Legion Musketeer: What do you think you're doing?
Efram Greetsglory: That's it! Pull that plating off!
Ember Doomforge: And smash the insides to pieces!
The Ruinbringer at 50%
Elite Frost Legion Musketeer: You think you can stop us? Stop Bangar? You're nothing! You're mice!
Efram Greetsglory: We're charr. And you're the one hiding in a tank. Legions! Finish it off!
Event success
Frost Legion Musketeer: (screams)
Efram Greetsglory: Everyone all right? Report.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Nice work, Imperator.
Efram Greetsglory: I had help. Can't imagine Iron expected their tanks to be taken down like that.
Ember Doomforge: Heh. Probably not. Can you take care of the ice?
