Fallen Poeta (FP), also known as Kroban Base, is a 3-player group instance for players of level 72 and above. Introduced in 5.1, it is accessible from Canyon of the Lost Souls Scout Post in Norsvold for Asmodians and Polten Marsh Scout Post in Iluma for Elyos. This is the realm of , an interdimensional creature, in which the events of Dark Poeta turned out differently.
As several fragments of the Tower dropped to the lands on its bases, the concentration of Aether causes distortions in reality, even a reality which is not part of our timeline. This fragment quickly turned into an artifact, whose power is now following will, a creature alien to our reality.
The presence of this artifact was noted by the nearby Balaur legion, attempting their invasion on the Elysean region. Instead of perishing due to Aether, they were incredibly boosted by the artifact. Tempted by this power, heavily fortified the access to Timolia Mine, where he would attempt to open a vortex to hideout. He tasked to make use of his newly acquired ability if needed.
However, it was not too late when Daevas noticed the strange line of defences put up by the Balaur. Unsure of their plans, to preserve the Tower fragment and avoid an imminent attack from them, a squad of Daevas was sent to put an end to this extradimensional danger.
The instance contains level 75 mobs. DPS is crucial inside, and as such certain classes will be more effective inside. For instance, due to the need to take down several groups of mobs swiftly, classes like Gladiators and Aethertechs strongly ease up the run.
The run can be separated into three parts, all of which are required to pass through to successfully end the instance. The first one is Dark Spore Road, where players will have to smash down Balaur barricades before reaches them or the end of the valley. The second one is the interior of Timolia Mine, a straightforward path. And finally the battle against himself.
Resurrection skills and items cannot be used at all while in the Darkspore Road. NPCs may sometimes accept to teleport players with their group under certain conditions. However, once the first section is cleared, teleporting NPCs will be permanently up, offering to send players to the entrance to Timolia Mine. The resurrection restrictions are lifted inside the mine and hideout.
Dark Spore Road Edit
Players will start in a crumbling house with two NPCs and a . The first section begins as soon as a player exits the house by chatting with the NPC at the door, and the dropped by the expire after 2 minutes.
Across the valley there will be Balaur posts which have barricaded the way. There being four posts, the group must get passed all of them in order to reach the following area. However, will be slowly walking in the same direction, and getting 20 metres or less close to him leads to instant death, due to his skill . As such, players must hurry to keep as much distance away from him as possible, but also find the balance of the amount of mobs the group can manage at a time.
Due to the radical decrease in difficulty, the following section can be overlooked for the most part of the section as generally will not push too much. The group designates a person to deal with . When laid up, will receive a debuff which will reduce his movement speed considerably. This will give the rest of the group more time to deal with the barricades. When picked up, traps will last 2 minutes in a player's inventory, and when set up they will last 30s on the ground. This is mainly important on the path before the first post, but can be dismissed for the rest.
Posts will be of either two types; an iron fence or Balaur only. The fence type barricade will contain a , guarded by a and a few other Balaur. These fences only receive 1 damage when attacked and will summon additional guards depending on their HP.
The other type of post is conformed of Balaur only. This one will have a , a , a and other side Balaur guards. When destroyed, the will become mountable by players, which will allow an easier time taking down the . Taking them out is crucial, as it will boost Anuhart's speed considerably.
Other additional obstacles in Darkspore Road are , and . The explosives are guarded by a . Once passes by it, the entirety of the valley will explode in flames, annihilating all group members and resetting them and back to the beginning. It is a must to take care of the , thus disabling the explosives.
At a certain point, players will be prompted to "find another route", randomly as walks around. When the area turns into a sea of flames, much like with the , it will instantly kill anyone standing on them. However, unlike the other case, this one can be avoided by heading inside any of the side hideouts in the road (caves), acting as a safe place as the flames disappear (few seconds afterwards) and resume pressing forward.
If the group is shorthanded by the time they reach the final post, such as not having their healer or tank dead, the rest of the group can try damaging the from distance. As Balaur are not friendly towards the fence (even the mobs spawned by it), the group may take it down with ranged attacks and go through into the mine. This will cause to disappear and allowing access to the following section.
Timolia Mine Edit
This small portion of the instance is meant to be a rest between the final boss and the previous section. Only featuring a small amount of Balaur. These are the only mobs that will drop items and reward XP. Heading into the Room of Dimension, the group must go through the portal at the top to be teleported to hideout.
Artifact Overlord Kroban Edit
His attacks will consist of (frontal cone AoE attack), (single person attack), (area of the target) and (single target attack). When low on HP, he will put a random group member into an aerial state and cast . It will create a shield on Kroban, which can be broken after a certain amount of damage and being able to cancel the casting of this skill. If goes off, Kroban will recover nearly 10% of his HP.
