Juston's walkthrough is perfect. I just used 3 toons with no mercs instead. Got a totem in the first mission, after about 20 minutes. At level 100 killing here is trivial, especially with Tectonic Tremblor. Two casts will waste a mass of mobs. Biggest problem is looting, destroying all the darn unstackable swords and finding the mobs since they're scattered throughout the zone, of course. But well worth the effort for an item this useful.

Now to sell all that crap cluttering up my bags!

PS Another suggestion is to clear the zone accompanied by a level 70 rogue. The rogue's SOS allows him to follow without getting agro and he can do the looting, to save time and annoyance. The 4gp swords and the orc head that drops from every orc are the main loot headaches. Interestingly, the rogue I used was getting XP, even tho all the mobs were grey to my 100 druid, and he went from 70-72 in one clear. That wasn't even a full clear since I had the rogue on AAXP at first, which was a waste since the XP rules are different for AA versus regular XP and mobs that are grey to the highest member of a group give NO XP to any other member in the group. But regular XP, the lower level groupmate will get XP if the mobs are at least LB to him.

In other words, if you're going to engage in the mind-numbing task of pharming this item you should at least max out the benefits!

Here is how I did this with a 95 Druid and 95 Bard.

1.Bind at quest giver Shadowalker Dustspirit with druid.
2.Secondary Bind AA at instance with druid.
3.Shroud down to level 65 on bard in Plane of Knowledge.
4.Teleport bind AA bard and druid to Shadowalker Dustspirit.
5.Give shrouded bard some plat for mercenary upkeep.
6.Cast Plane of Knowledge Ring on druid.
7.Shroud down to level 65 on druid in PoK.
8.Unsuspended mercenary on bard (must keep merc out to count as third person the whole time)
9.Say “I’ll aid” to Shadowalker Dustspirit with bard and chose “Freeing an Elder” it will not say normal or easy and the hard choice will not show up. Only one quest will appear in the window.
10.Remove shroud on druid.
11.Secondary Recall AA port to instance on druid.
12.Zone in.

Fully buff up druid, everything you have.
Pop cleric merc on druid for HP buffs then suspend.
Pull as many as you can, basically until you get stunned too much or lag too hard.
Vinelash the group.
Use the 91-95 AE’s (or higher for future expan packs)(Crashing Hail, Tectonic Tremor, Helical Flare, and Lunar Chill)
Use Remote Sunburst for heals.
Have the Twincast spell and AA ready and use any time they are up.
Plus any other damage pluses, aura, wolf, first spire, etc.
Find the pattern you like to clear zone, mobs path funky in the water areas.
Loot everything except the swords and orc heads, they don’t sell for enough to warrant the space they consume.

Vendor sell all loot after every couples of clears, depending on bag space. Each clear is 5-7k plat.

Takes 40min to an hour depending on how big you pull. Clearing the bodies takes the most time.

I got the totem on clear 8 and clear 9. If you see the Mask of Ardent Spirits drop you got the hard version somehow. If you follow these directions as close as possible you’ll be good to go though.

Would you like to know how many mobs there are in a Hive instance? Because I can tell you!

It took me 2 full clears, and a few partial clears to get the drop. Each instance houses 265 mobs (from logged experience messages), so I would say the drop rate is something like 1 in 1000 kills, or 0.1%.

The previously posted information is accurate. Get a normal version of longshadow 1 "Freeing an Elder". The one without "(Hard)" in the title.

I'm not completely sure of the level requirements, but the maximum spread for the mission is only 10 levels (a PC shrouded to 60 produced an error message). If a group average level of 65 must be obtained, the only way to do this is to have all members of your group shroud to 65, and then get the mission.

Once you have the mission, you can deshroud, and then go farming. To be safe, I had a level 65 shroud enter the zone first, to ensure the mob level was maintained while deshrouding.

The mobs are light-blue to a level 75, have less than 30k hp and hit for around 500. If you're consistently taking hits of 1.5k you might not have a low enough group average level to get the correct version of the mission, but there could just be a few hard-hitting mobs.

You do NOT have to engage or kill the named to get the drop.

As indicated, it should be a zone-wide drop from any mob. My drop came from a spider in the bottom floor of a structure on the bridge network. On the map, the structure next to the south-eastern hive.

The recast timer is item-dependent, not type dependent, and therefore does not share a timer with Feral Guardian Channeler. You can use both in succession.

I hope this clears things up a bit.

Thank you very much for the detailed information. I lucked out and managed to get a totem half way through my first clearing! But I wouldn't have even known about the lower level ''easy'' version of this (and the other ELs) mission if not for you.

Checking various item databases, it seems no one has reported on the rare drop from EL4 easy.

Where does this drop? In a regular zone? Instanced (EG, mission)? Any known mobs that drop it?

Looks like a Feral Guardian Channeler, but with a Recommended/Required level on it. Would personally prefer this one, for the higher hp/mp/end, since all my stats have been maxxed for ages.
