  • Cannot be used in combat or when defeated.
  • If you are already in a zone with an upcoming threat, it will not teleport you to a closer waypoint within that zone.
  • Active threats are only available for five minutes.
  • Does not consume any coin, in contrast to using a waypoint to get to the same location.
  • Notifications show up as: Threat detected! <Boss name> attacks in 10 minutes for Central Tyrian boss and The whispers grow louder! Drakkar will emerge in 10 minutes for Drakkar.
