Zalcano is a demon imprisoned beneath Prifddinas, fought using skill-based mechanics rather than conventional combat. Immune to typical combat damage, players are required to utilize their Mining, Smithing, and Runecrafting skills to craft imbued tephra capable of shattering her stone armor. Once her armor is shattered, they must then proceed to damage her by mining her with a pickaxe.
Zalcano's encounter demands a baseline of 70 Mining and Smithing for engagement, yet elevated proficiencies in Mining, Smithing, and Runecrafting would bestow a strategic advantage. Additionally, bolstered Hitpoints are recommended to endure her array of assaults effectively.

Access to Zalcano's prison is available through a teleport platform located just west of the south-eastern bank in Prifddinas' Trahaearn district. As gaining entry to Prifddinas necessitates completing the Song of the Elves quest.
Zalcano employs six distinct attacks that players must remain vigilant against when confronting the stone demon. These attacks materialize randomly throughout the battle.
An overview of Zalcano's prison. To the west, the blue altar. To the east, the red furnace. In the corners, the four rock formations.
To strip Zalcano of her armor and mine her once it's dislodged, players must fashion imbued tephra and hurl it at her.
Begin by extracting tephra from the luminous rock formation in any of the prison's four corners. Opt for glowing rocks, as non-glowing formations yield tephra at a significantly reduced rate.
Upon Zalcano's initial emergence, the northeast corner often boasts the brightest glow. If not there, other corners are possible spawning points. The southwestern corner used to be excluded from early spawns.
Stay vigilant for Zalcano aiming a magic attack at a luminous rock; this triggers an explosion causing ~30 damage to those nearby. Another rock will promptly start glowing. Shift to this one if you lack sufficient tephra.
Next, refine your tephra into refined tephra at the furnace located on the prison's eastern side.
Proceed to imbue your refined tephra into imbued tephra at the altar situated on the prison's western side.
Finally, engage Zalcano in combat.
Engaging Zalcano: Imbued tephra need not be equipped for use. Zalcano's orange/blue demonic symbols signal an opportunity; standing in blue symbols significantly heightens damage and accuracy when hurling tephra. Strategically reserving tephra until Zalcano reveals blue symbols ensures more efficient usage, sidestepping the time-consuming process of crafting more.
Decide whether to expend or conserve tephra by multiplying remaining tephra by 15 and the number of players in the battle. If this figure approaches Zalcano's remaining armor hitpoints, conserving tephra might prove advantageous.
Should Zalcano unleash her magic attack on a wall instead of a luminous rock formation, a 14-hitpoint golem materializes, replenishing Zalcano's armor by 50 (or a proportional fraction if it's already been damaged). In larger teams (8+ players), the golem can be safely disregarded. In smaller teams, dispatch the golem by flinging imbued tephra. When defeated, it bestows a stack of 16-24 imbued tephra upon the player who inflicted the most damage. Gathering these, any remaining tephra can be launched at Zalcano, ultimately aiding in dislodging her armor.
Once her armor is worn down, Zalcano collapses and becomes susceptible.
Throwing imbued tephra while standing under a blue demonic symbol will increase the player's accuracy and damage.
Mining Zalcano: Position yourself near Zalcano as her armor's hitpoints approach zero to expedite the mining process. Avoid moving underneath her, as this will lead to around 7 damage per tick.
After a variable duration (randomly between 12-16 seconds) or when players have collectively dealt 380 damage, she will rise, prepared to resume the battle.
Her armor reverts to 300 hitpoints. A shockwave eradicates any remaining tephra. Refrain from mining prior to this occurrence, as recently collected tephra will also be obliterated.
Individuals standing adjacent to her will be hurled a few tiles away and briefly stunned for 1-2 ticks, incurring roughly 10 damage.
Return to the initial phase and repeat the process until her hitpoints reach zero, successfully concluding the encounter!

World Assignment and Team Strategy: The designated world for America is World 378, while for Germany it is World 375.
Calculating Required Tephra: To determine the necessary tephra for each team member, divide 30 by the number of participants, rounding up. Imbued tephra inflict ~10 damage (~15 on blue symbols), and her armor has 300 hitpoints.
Optimal Team Size and Loot Efficiency: For consistent three-phase victories and optimal loot, a team size of 4-6 is ideal.
Finding Suitable Worlds: Various clan chats are accessible to locate worlds with optimal group sizes.
Avoiding Falling Rocks: Voluminous rocks frequently descend from above, causing around ~40 damage if not evaded by relocating to another tile. Debris falling indicates their trajectory. Stay vigilant when stationary or moving to areas with stationary players.
Demonic Symbols Awareness: Periodically, Zalcano generates orange/blue demonic symbols. Running over an orange symbol inflicts escalating damage (up to 26) based on its duration and reduces run energy. Evade orange symbols while maneuvering. Blue symbols amplify imbued tephra's damage and accuracy.
Anticipated Experience Gains: Efficiently defeating Zalcano yields roughly 13,500 Mining, 3,000 Smithing, and 1,500 Runecrafting experience per hour.
