Soon after its discovery, miners from across the realm flocked to the Aurum Vale, driven by rumors that deep within lay endless veins of mythril. What they found instead was gold, but not the sort which would make them rich. Believing the substance precious aurum, miners unknowingly stumbled into deep pools of glowing venom thereafter known as goldbile. Not only did the liquid burn their skin, but the noisome fumes given off by the foul ooze cooked their lungs when inhaled, bringing on a quick, yet excruciating death. These truths, however, have done little to prevent new miners from braving the suffocating shafts, now even more driven to find what those who entered before could not.

The Aurum Vale Guide

Note that the goldbile liquid does damage to players standing in them.

Aggressive difficulty r6.png Locksmith

Locksmith is the first boss of The Aurum Vale - this gigantic Ochu has several high damage mechanics that will test the capabilities of the parties' healers.

Morbol Fruit will grow along the sides of the arena. Locksmith will cast a Gold Lung debuff on the party that can't be cleansed by Esuna.png  Esuna. To remove the debuff, players will need to click on the Morbol Fruit to interact with the item and remove the debuff. Players should never have more than 2 stacks of Gold Lung.

After interacting with a fruit, it will disappear. The Morbol Fruits respawn over time.

Abilities

  • Hundred Lashings is a melee attack that deals moderate to high amount of damage.
  • Gold Rush is an instant ability that places a damage over time debuff named Gold Lung on all players. This effect stacks. The debuff can be removed by consuming a Morbol Fruit.
  • Gold Dust is a circular AoE spell that appears under a random player. It deals moderate damage to all players hit.

Tank Mechanics

In order to click on the Morbol Fruit to remove the debuff stacks, tanks may have to stun Locksmith to avoid being interrupted.

Aggressive difficulty r6.png Coincounter

Coincounter is a giant cyclops that has powerful front AoE attacks, swipe cleave abilities, and a room-wide AoE lightning mechanic.

  • As of Patch 5.3 orange ground indicators have been added to all of the boss' AoEs. However, there are later occurrences of this same type of boss that remain un-telegraphed, so learning the visual tells is still useful and encouraged.

All non-tank players should stay away from the front of the boss at all times- Coincounter has 2 types of 100-Tonze Swipe cleaves:

  • The first type can be identified when he holds his mace with only 1 of his hands. This is a frontal cone AoE attack.
  • The second type can be identified when he holds his mace with 2 of his hands. This is a circular AoE attack that does an enormous amount of damage to all targets around him.

100-Tonze swipe attack can be stunned or interrupted.

At about half HP, Coincounter will start using Eye of the Beholder, a long range, frontal cone, AoE spell. Ranged damage dealers and healers should spread apart and avoid his Glower and Eye of the Beholder abilities if possible.

Abilities

  • 10-Tonze Swipe is an instant frontal AoE attack that does moderate amount of damage.
  • 100-Tonze Swipe (1 Hand) is a frontal cone AoE attack that does a large amount of damage to all targets hit.
  • 100-Tonze Swing (2 Hand) is a circular AoE attack that does extremely large amount of damage to all targets close to the Cyclops.
  • Glower is a laser fired from the eye of Coincounter onto a random player. The player will take moderate amount of damage and become inflicted with the debuff Paralysis icon1.png Paralysis.
  • Eye of the Beholder is a partial donut AoE spell that deals a moderate amount of damage and inflicts a DoT named Electrocution. Coincounter will face a random player and use the emote "The Coincounter takes a moment to reconsider..." before using this spell. This C-shaped attack has safe spots behind the boss and close in.

100-Tonze Swipe, 100-Tonze Swing and Eye of the Beholder can be interrupted with stuns.

Aggressive difficulty r6.png Miser's Mistress

Miser's Mistress is the final boss of The Aurum Vale. This Morbol boss has powerful frontal AoE attacks and should be faced away from all non-tank players. The debuffs from Bad Breath could be deadly.

Similar to Locksmith, there are objects named Morbol Fruit around the boss room. Players can consume the fruit to remove all the stacks of the debuff Burrs on them. Players should consume the fruit at 3 Burrs stacks.

Adds

At half HP, Miser's Mistress will spawn 5 strange Morbol Fruits that must be destroyed immediately. Use a physical ranged or caster limit break if needed. Any fruits that hatch will turn into Morbol Seedlings that will add Burr debuff stacks with every attack. If any seedlings hatch, this could easily wipe the group.

Abilities

  • If the healer gets hit by Bad Breath, it can very quickly lead to a wipe. Healers and ranged dps should stay far away from the boss. Esuna.png  Esuna can be used to remove the Bad Breath debuffs, but this will only remove one status effect at a time. Players should use the Morbol Fruit to remove the effects if they are hit with Bad Breath.
  • Vine Probe is a frontal column AoE attack that deals a moderate amount of damage to all targets hit.
  • Hooked Burrs is an ability that deals a small amount of damage and adds one stack of Burrs on a random player.
  • Burr Burrow is an ability that inflicts the player with the debuff Burrs and deals small amount of damage per stack of Burrs already on the player. If a player has enough Burr stacks, this can do a considerable amount of damage. Use the Morbol Fruit that grow on the outside of the arena to clense the debuff stacks. Healers can't cleanse the debuff.
