The Talos of Silver is a 40-man Open Raid encounter available during the Anniversary Event in Agartha.
Task Description: Gaia forms elemental constructs to test and reward her champions, but something went wrong... and the hulking automaton turned deadly. Fortunately, you helped to bring this corrupted Talos down before it could cause undue harm. Now claim your reward.
Upon defeating the Silver Talos, the raid mission The Talos of Silver will be applied to all participants in the instance. Within seconds of receiving the mission, it automatically completes.
Defeating the Silver Talos gives the buff Anima Surge, which allows a player to open a Buzzing Hive during its 10 minute duration. Only one Buzzing Hive can be opened per Anima Surge effect.
Agartha will expel players from the raid instance shortly after defeating the Silver Talos within. Removal from the instance is staggered to reduce server lag, so some players will be teleported out first and others may have to wait a few seconds to leave the instance.
The Talos of Silver gives a Genizah of Silver upon turn-in. In addition, it rewards 1 Animated Particulate for First-Time Completion. This mission has a 30-minute cooldown.
For more information on the contents of Buzzing Hives, the Genizah of Silver, Animated Particulates, the Talos of Gaia, or the Anniversary Event itself, see our Anniversary Event Guide!
The Immaculate Machine has initiated the education protocols, desiring to teach Her bees how to best protect Her. Unfortunately for the bees, something has corrupted all of the Talos of Gaia that have been created for teaching purposes, including the Silver Talos.
The Silver Talos is one of the 40-player Open Raid encounters accessible in Agartha through the Vibrant Agartha instance, which will always contain 1 Talos of Gaia raid boss out of a total of 11 different Talos of Gaia raid bosses found within Vibrant Agartha. Every 00:02 minutes past the hour, the portal to Vibrant Agartha becomes active for 10 minutes. While bosses inside may last after that period of time, no more may enter to face a Talos once those 10 minutes have passed. The Talos of Gaia present within Vibrant Agartha rotates every hour.
There are no level requirements necessary to enter and face the Silver Talos. A player only needs to have met Jack Boone in Kingsmouth Town in order to participate in the raid.
The portal to Vibrant Agartha can be found between the Agartha Pad to the Training Grounds and the Transylvania region just outside of the Hollowed Halls (550,250). It is festively decorated with balloons, piñatas, and streamers.
Players within Vibrant Agartha are buffed with Equal Footing so that their stats are scaled evenly regardless of their level or item power.
The Silver Talos is permanently immune to Stuns, Knock Downs, Obstruction, Roots, and Snares.
As a Talos of Gaia, the Silver Talos is intimately intertwined with anima. As a result, it will try to take the anima from surrounding players through Anima Leech. Anima Leech surrounds the Silver Talos in a ring.
To avoid Anima Leech, either move close to the Talos or move far enough away as to avoid being within the ring.
Anima Leech causes a large amount of damage. The damage leeched is added to the Silver Talos' health, healing it. The more people caught in Anima Leech, the more that the golem is healed.
Staying in the leech field can consequently prolong the fight and aggravate the congregated players.
The Silver Talos slams the ground around it, causing any players near the golem to be thrown into the air and damaged slightly by Upheaval. Affected players have the debuff Upheaval, and are knocked out for twelve seconds starting as soon as players are flung high in the sky. Anybody with Upheaval is incapacitated for thosethe entire duration of the debuff.
To avoid Upheaval, move away from the Silver Talos when it begins its cast.
