New hint to TFB secret?

Running through TFB 8-man HM a few days ago, we noticed a peculiar device that spawned.

It was called the "Hypergate control tower" and it spawned in the area of Kephess the Undying, after we had killed it. We wiped on TFB 1-time, and noticed this control tower when rez'ing and running back to TFB.

We tried to click it, which spawned a system message that said, "Access denied, you have to be corrupted to use this."

Quick google and TORhead search found this, although there isn't any additional information. http://www.torhead.com/npc/34e8EQy/h...-control-tower

Theory: clicking it in "dreadful orb state" will close the hypergate above TFB's head, thereby changing the 2nd phase of the fight?

It's what you use in Phase 2 of Kephess the Undying in order to remove Corrupted Nanites from yourself.

I read it. That happens sometimes. It's a bug. It's the exact same tower, you get the exact same message during the fight if you try to click it and have no nanites on you.

This is what happens when a PvP guild starts doing PvE. Excuse their lack of knowledge.

Ya I've seen what you're talking about on Kephess...definitely worth a try, although it does seem like a buggy remnant of the 2nd phase of the Kephess fight. It is the same message that you get when you click a tower without nanites.

Going to explain what happened here, you killed the boss, but you didn't destroy all the pillars that appear around in the room, they are however still clickable but you need the "Corrupted Nanites" debuff to do so. When the boss dies, everyone that had the debuff is cleansed of it and thus none will have the debuff, meaning all in all that everyone can try to click on the pillar that is left, but none can destroy it.

I hope that cleared up any questions you might have with this issue.
