The Vestige of Transylvania is one of the three Vestiges of Nameless Days which roam the secret world every winter, echoing what happened in the one time 2012 winter event “End of Days”. The mission has no cool down.

Roaming Area

The Vestige of Transylvania is found in Shadowy Forest. See map below for it’s approximate, and very long, route which it goes back and forth along. It should be noted that engaging the vestige in water is not advised due to all ground residue, so don’t start a fight to the right of the red line. Also, Hatchet Falls is a bad spot (red circle) and should be avoided.



Exhale the Void

This is a wide cone attack. If allowed to finish, it will leave a filth ‘pie slice’ on the ground.

The preferred method is to break the attack with a aggro swap.
If no aggro swap can be done, the tank must keep the Vestige still, and tank it by circling it a quarter round as the exhales are done. The first filth ‘pie slice’ will be gone by the time the fourth is cast, hence one can keep going like this the entire fight.

The Precession

This is the attack that kills a lot of players. The boss starts to cast a AoE at his own feet, leaving a deadly red residue.

He will then start to cast this residue all over the field. There will not be a chalk outline for this cast, but a red reticle on the ground. If you are in an area where the attack is about to land, you will also be warned by a red exclamation mark over your head. Move out of this ASAP.
