Risen Priestess of Lyssa

The Risen Priestess of Lyssa is a powerful Risen Mesmer that controls the Cathedral of Eternal Radiance. She was once the high priestess of Lyssa in Orr, but is now a servant of Zhaitan. She's protected by a magical barrier and cannot be fought until the cathedral's three outer seals are captured. Defeating her is the final objective of Cathedral of Eternal Radiance (meta event) and a Glorious Chest will spawn upon her death.
There exists also Champion versions of it, which can be encountered during the personal story.

Sometimes facing the Risen Priestess of Lyssa will continue to Daze you even if she's no longer channeling Corrupted Gaze.
  • The Risen Priestess of Lyssa herself isn't actually very dangerous, the real threat comes from the Risen and Corrupted Illusions she spawns.
  • If the event scales up enough for the Priestess to summon Champion Corrupted Illusions watch out, they're especially deadly.
  • If Summoned Allies or Ranger pets are facing the Priestess while she's channeling Corrupted Gaze they'll get dazed and cause additional Risen to spawn just like players do.
