This is a single group trial.

The Projection of Arcana may be found at -1090.44, 1722.92, -306.85.

You say, 'Hail, Projection of Arcana'

Projection of Arcana says 'Halt, Dark Elf, and hear my words. Your background and your status are of no consequence. All are welcome to participate in the trials to prove their worth, or die trying. Whosoever approaches me has addressed the embodiment of Arcana, keeper of the trials of Efficiency and Specialization. The former is a small-scale test, while the latter is large-scale. My task is to explain the rules and usher hopefuls into the battle arena. Would you like to hear the rules for [small-scale] or [large-scale] trials, or do you wish to enroll in [Efficiency] or [Specialization]?'

You say, 'Small-scale.'

Projection of Arcana says 'Every test has its rules and these trials are no exception. The following guidelines must be followed to the letter, or else you stand to forfeit or perish. You are allowed no more than six participants in the battle. Once the trial has begun, you must remain in the combat area. Violators of this rule will be warned and then destroyed. Your progress will be carefully monitored. If you take too long, you will fail. These are the rules and they are not negotiable.'

You say, 'Efficiency?'

Projection of Arcana says 'While it can be admirable to defeat the opposition while in prime condition, a more accurate test of one's mettle is to tackle an opponent while fatigued and weary - yet still walk away victorious. If you have this ability, now is the opportunity to prove your worth!'

On zoning into the trial, you will find the Master of Efficiency standing on the central podium..

You say, 'Hail'

Master of Efficiency says 'This is the Mastery of Efficiency trial. You must demonstrate your ability to function under less than perfect conditions, battling with limited resources. Are you ready to [begin]?'

You say, 'begin'

The trial has begun. You cannot bring any additional people into your expedition at this time.

Master of Efficiency says 'Very well! Let the battle commence!'

All mobs in this trial are fully slowable.

This trial is similar to the Trial of Execution in the Plane of Justice. You must survive four waves of 3-4 mobs, and kill them in sufficient time (you have four minutes per wave). The mobs involved are a Muramite soldier (mezzable), an elite Muramite soldier (unmezzable), and "Muramite Commander" (unmezzable).

Note: Every five minutes, the unresistable AE Test of Efficiency goes off.

When the final wave's four minute timer runs out (and assuming you've actually survived), the Enforcer of Efficiency spawns and attacks. Kill him to win the trial. A Shell of the Master spawns with the loot.

Need all dialogues, /loc of quest-giver, emotes during fight, time limit for expedition, lockout timers for success and failure, minimum group size to get expedition.
