Awesome job for the developers to put something like this in, and having to wait until before 1.7 for someone to solve it.
The orb turns you into what looks like a hypergate anomaly for 15 seconds.

Well yeah, but it probably does something more than that, unless the devs trolled everyone who defeated the dreadful essence or whatever its called

In TFB hardmode, for the terror fight, phase 1, there is the little circle that appears next to the tentacle before the portal appears to suck someone in. What if the person with the orb stood on that circle and uses it (maybe with all other players going into the created anomaly)?

I had to leave at 10% until the boss went down. Other then the orb what else does it drop and does Dreadtooth give you a title for killing him at 10 stacks?

Dread Tooth 10 stack gave us the title of The Resurgent
Dread entity kill gave us teh title of Dread Slayer
Dread Entity single piece of loot was the dreadful orb - we experimented briefly with what it could do and could not figure it out, yet.

BTW These are the current carnage theories on the dreadful orb:

1.After killing the TFB (final boss) - the corpse where you loot looks exactly like the dread entity - the buff from the dreadful orb looks like an anomaly - so we would like to try casting the dreadful orb on the corpse of the TFB.

2.We tried casting the dreadful orb on DreadTooth - but we think that casting it on the tank that engages DreadTooth might do something difference.

3.We did not try casting dreadful orb on DreadTooth after buffing him to 10 stack (we tried on 1 stack).

4.We would like to try casting the dreadful orb on the other world boss in Belsavis.

These are our current best theories however, I'd like to note this for anyone looking for an answer:
Dreadful orb can be casted on anyone - friend or foe. It could be some weird power up device. It is a Gree technology, most likely - so I would look for clues around the Gree (and not EC). Because it can be casted on friend or foe, we feel like it is not location specific, necessarily, but more likely target specific for its given function.

Also ... as far as we know there aren't any outstanding titles to be had ... you'd think there would be if there were another secret boss out there. I will be sure to keep everyone updated as we learn more and try new things (especially within these theories). Definitely look forward to everyone's suggestions!

Awesome job on both the Dreadtooth 10 stack kill and the Dreadful Entity! Thank you for sharing through the live-stream.

Perhaps the orb allows one of you to interact with the panels in the rooms with the Data Cores leading to tfbs 3rd boss? Worth trying when you next go in.

Immediately following the Dreadful Entity and Dread tooth kills I did a guild interview with Carnage Gaming highlighting the mechanics of the fight and giving the entire thing a full analysis.

Highlighted here:




Thanks Carnage Gaming and congratulations!
