Online:Symphony of Blades
|Symphony of Blades|
|Location||Tabernacle of Light Unyielding, Depths of Malatar|
The Symphony of Blades is the final boss of the Depths of Malatar. It is King Narilmor transformed into an avatar of Meridia's power, in the image of an Auroran suit of armor with four arms and blades. In Veteran mode, burning the Dictates of the Lady of Light will trigger hard mode, where it will now summon colored dark orbs.
During the fight, it can summon the four colors of Aurorans to aid itself, which will converge from each corner of the room to join it in the center and empower it. It will also summon the Auroran Phalanx, a formation of Aurorans that march with Meridia's Light at their side and will empower the Symphony of Blades if they cross paths.

It can also summon the Auroran Phalanx in the realm, spread up into various groups marching in different paths, three Aurorans being in each group.

Skills and Abilities
- The boss will send fire aoes spiraling everywhere. You should try to avoid these. He uses them when he is powered by a red Auroran shade.
- Cowardice Purification
- This ability is probably what happens if you try to exit the arena and run into the barriers of light blocking the two exits.
- Radiant Destruction
- This ability is similar to the Templar skill. The boss will shoot a beam of pure light from his hands at the tank. This ability is powered up if a golden auroran shade reaches him.
- Singing Blade
- The boss will spin his arms around and around, dealing significant damage to anyone caught in the aoe. It is similar to the big swingy-arms aoe used by the Mournful Aegis enemy found in Hew's Bane.
- Agonizing Bolts
- When empowered by a blue Auroran shade, the boss will call down lightning aoes from the sky that deal more damage if you are hit in succession.
