The Magisterium Trial (MT, Magi) is one of the Incarnate Trials connected to the release of Issue 23 which takes place after the events in Dark Astoria and after the events in Belladonna Vetrano's arc. A minimum of 12 and a maximum of 24 players can raid the Magisterium.

In order to participate in the Magisterium Trial, players must have the Lore Slot and Destiny Slot already unlocked.

Prior to the mission, the league gathers in a "staging area" and speak with Dream Doctor. While there is no specific contact (the trial is entered entirely through the LFG menu), Dream Doctor continues to give information through text pop-ups related to the league's progress throughout the trial.

All Issue 20 Incarnate Components will drop during this trial, and Advanced Psychic Incarnate Experience is gained towards unlocking the Hybrid Incarnate Slot.

In Detail

The Magisterium Trial is an incarnate trial that takes place in Nova Praetoria. There is no contact for this trial, though Dream Doctor assists during the trial. However, rather than going to anyone for a mission, the players use the Team-Up Teleporter to find other interested players.

Phase 1

The League must defeat 250 IDF surrounding the Magisterium. +++ Missing Information +++

Phase 2

The League must defeat Chimera, Nega-Pendragon and Shadowhunter. Chimera will mark targets for Rain of Arrows, Nega-Pendragon taunts and gains rage while fighting, and Shadowhunter gains rage while not fighting. When defeated each has a specific power that triggers. After Nega-Pendragon's defeat, his sword Excalibur will continue fighting, spawning damage patches as in the Apex TF. After Shadowhunter's defeat, the remaining AVs will gain the ability to Banish anyone hit by their attacks three times, shifting that character out of phase for ten seconds. After Chimera's defeat, he activates a minefield?.

Shadowhunter uses a power called Grasp of the Beyond, which kicks in when his health is lower than 50%. It places resistance to Heal effects on nearby characters proportional to the amount of health he has left.

+++ Missing Information +++

Phase 3

The League must defeat Black Swan. She spawns Shadow Portals which heal her and spawn minions, and will teleport the League to her and use Quills of Jocas to disable incarnate powers for a short time. +++ Missing Information +++

Phase 4

The League must defeat Tyrant. Surrounding the area will be 6 respawning Lights of the Well. Use the Quills of Jocas temp power while standing next to these to defeat them, which gives the team a temporary stacking Level Shift (up to +9 possible). Tyrant uses several different attacks, the most damaging of which is Zeus' Lightning Bolt used approximately every 30 seconds. Players will see the message The air crackles around Tyrant! shortly before the attack hits, giving them time to move away from Tyrant. The attack is a PBAoE which summons Flow Lightning, each one doing 10-12 ticks of heavy energy DoT and stacking an energy resistance debuff with each tick. As the columns are targeted on players within range, it is possible to be hit by multiple columns at once if players are close together, leading to a quick death. Hammer of Justice is another attack to watch out for due to the 60ft range PBAoE which does not display any warning and deals severe Smashing/Energy damage. Unlike Statesman's version, Tyrant is able to use his in midair.

Tyrant is also able to use his Power of Tartarus, a 60ft sphere centered on him, to give himself bonus ToHit and Smashing Damage by using the lifeforce of any Olympian Guards in range. This buff duration is 60 seconds, and stacks, but each application refreshes the duration of all other stacks. However, when Tyrant drops below 40% health, Olympians Guards are no longer available.

Once Tyrant is below 50% health, a bar appears showing his "Favor of the Well", a number which directly affects his regeneration. Favor of the Well will increase by two points for every % of his MaxHP that Tyrant drops below 50. Similarly, Favor of the Well decreases by two points for every %MaxHP that Tyrant regenerates.

When Tyrant reaches 10% HP, the league has effectively won the trial. The Well rescinds much of the power it has given Tyrant, and he loses his special regeneration, along with level shifts, becoming level 54(-8). In addition, he loses all of his attacks save for Brawl. The league must utterly destroy Tyrant by stripping away his last 10% HP, at which point the Trial is successfully over.

Notable NPCs

Please note that Archvillains will be level 54(+3), while Tyrant will be level 54(+5). Level Shift and Incarnate Shifts are recommended to defeat them.
