What does this information mean?


A relatively straightforward fight. There are two torches on the wall that can be picked up. Have as many classes grab a torch as you like (except the tank). These torches will be used to burn four or five books, scrolls and papers that Codexicon will spawn on the inside circle at 80%, 60%, 40% and 20% of its health. When they spawn, a large, red-lettered text emote will be shown on screen at the same time. If these are not burnt, there will be an AOE (called "Decay of Thought") that hits the whole group for varying amounts of damage based on how many are not burned. The time to burn these items is not fixed, rather it is based on how much damage is done to the named while they are up -- though the faster your group burns them, the better. More damage will give you less time to burn them, this it is imperative that dps is slowed when he spawns them. Adds will also be spawned once either the AOE hits, or all the items are burned.

All players can grab a torch off the wall, simply by having everybody click at the same time (which can be achieved with a text or voice chat countdown). A player with a torch does not need to "Use" it like a charm, they only have to click on the book/scroll/page nearest them to set it on fire. If everyone in your party was not able to grab a torch and you can spare the time to wait, approximately 10-15 minutes later the torches will respawn on the wall.

If you burn all the texts quickly enough, nothing will happen and you can continue destroying the Named. However, occasionally they will not burn and will instead turn into a fire serpent (a level 80^ mob).

It has been claimed that The Codexicon can be stunned or stifled or interrupted from summoning the books/pages/scrolls, but an effective usage and/or timing of these attempts has not yet been verified...

If you have half decent Velious gear AOEs don't really do much damage. You may be able to just ignore the script and burn him down, ignoring the adds that spawn. High dps will help reduce the time adds will be pounding the tank.
