    Default General Typhiria - Storm of Torment

    Just wondering if anyone else has run into this issue, it looks like a bug but we could be doing something wrong. What happens is just before the last Storm Blast (rectangle of death) she oneshots everyone but the tank with Storm of Torment (~20k damage). She actually casts Storm of Torment before she starts casting Storm Blasts and it doesn't do anything then, so it's pretty strange. In Tower of the Shattered, Storm of Torment is the name of the red bubble around her that you have to run out of. Haven't seen this ability listed on any guides for the raid.

    Not a bug. Storm of Torment is the AoE with which you are protected by the blue bubble. Your blue bubble ran out too early, meaning it was picked up too early. Make you sure you pick it up in the last 2 seconds of the 2nd Tempest of Agony. Or on the third Tempest of Agony after that if you have another Dark Clouds.

    That makes sense, thanks. Strange how it functions so differently from the dungeon ability of that name. Now to deal with the rectangle graphic bug.

    Drop banners, Medics and feasts outside on the stairs and you wont get the graphic bug.

    Just cut dps and have everyone run around the room in a circle together with the blue bubble until it's over, if you're really having trouble with Blast. Should only take you 1 blast phase and then it's back to complete faceroll in P2.

    We ran into a bug were the "door" graphics for the Storm Blast is actually way the hell off from were she is shooting off the lightning balls. We got through it using the continually run around the room trick, but it would be nice at some point to be able to just strafe left and right and keep more DPS on her during this phase. The strafe tactic currently won't work with the "door" graphics being in the completely wrong place as the actually Blast is going.
    "Overall we want the various callings to be competitive with each other in their comparative roles. There isnít a mandate that Rogues do more damage than Warriors or that Mages be the best ranged damage in the game. Ideally we would like to see players with equivalent skill, gear, planar attunement, buffs etc be equally effective at damage, tanking or healing." - Kervik

    There is a way to 'counter' the bug with that rectangle aoe.

    Firstly, during that phase, have the guy that picks up the orb (tank prefered) press q and e repeatedly (keep moving left and right a little). Doing this seems to make sure that the rectangle aoe drops on that guy (though the aoe might not show it).

    Secondly, ignore the rectangle aoe. With each cast, alternate the position the raid is in. Start in the middle, then move right, then left and so on. It takes time to actually get used to 'running into an aoe' but it works.

    the rectangle aoe effect is the problem. They couldn't make it work in 1.x and was removed and they can't make it work is SL. Same bug exists on the EE 2nd boss cross-rectangles. Wonder how many times they have to use it to figure they cant program/make it work on live

    Same bug exists in the Tower of the Shattered end boss. Would seem the code that handles Trion's door mechanics in general is borked across the board. One would think don't stand in the rectangle but secretly our aoe is somewhere else. Surprise.
