The Statue of Dwayna is a masterpiece created by Malchor the Sculptor and kept in the Cathedral of Zephyrs that once showed the true appearance of the goddess Dwayna. However, the sinking of Orr and Zhaitan's corruption have since altered the statue's appearance significantly. During the Cathedral of Zephyrs (meta event), Malchor's ghost is forced to return to the Altar of Tempests and remove his protective magic from it so that the temple can be cleansed by Historian Vermoth. However, overcome with grief and anger, he instead possesses the statue in order to exact his revenge and must be defeated.

Notes[edit]

  • The Statue of Dwayna's self healing may not seem like much at first, but it's capable of significantly prolonging the encounter if not dealt with.
  • Malchor's Tears can be reflected by skills such as Feedback and Wall of Reflection to deal massive amounts of damage and speed up the fight.

Trivia[edit]
