This is the third task in a series of five (the end result being your 70th level spell/tome). It begins with Jarzarrad the Prophet who can be found in Undershore at -960, +650.

It's a monster mission which can be done by players as low as level 50 (possibly lower - 50 is the lowest confirmed).

You say, 'Hail, Jarzarrad the Prophet'

Jarzarrad the Prophet says 'I know why you are here, _____.' He nods as you approach. 'I have known why you'd be here since before you were born. You are the _____ who will learn the secrets of [Shadowspine].''

You say, 'Shadowspine?'

Jarzarrad the Prophet says 'Yessss, Shadowspine. . . The drachnid book of the dead. . . The tome stolen by the Shiliskin Empire during the War of Four Crests. Shadowspine corrupted Emperor Draygun and drove him mad with the promise of power. Ultimately, Draygun's study of the tome led him to unleash terrible magic in Illsalin which turned him into a lich and bound the fallen warriors of two armies, both drachnid and shiliskin, to his will. You may not even know of Shadowspine yet. . . But you will. . . Let me know when you are [ready] to trace your fate.'

You say, 'I am ready'

Jarzarrad the Prophet says 'So be it. Here is what you must do. '

There are two versions of this task: Normal and hard. The only difference between them is the quality of loot and difficulty of mobs.

You have been assigned the task 'The Fall of Illsalin'

Monster template choices: Praetorean Priest, Enchanter, Rogue, Wizard and Warrior.



Speak with Brother Stillpool, Jarzarrad's Disciple 0/1 (Undershore)

You say, 'Hail, Brother Stillpool'

Jarzarrad's disciple extends one of the shiliskin royal guard skulls out to you and nods for you to place your hand on it. As you do, he raises his other hand which holds a fine dust of crushed deathshed mushrooms which he blows in your face. Your entire field of vision goes black. When your mind clears, you are in a different body in a different place and quite likely, a different time. . .

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Illsalin Marketplace.

The door behind you is bolted shut. Beyond it, you hear the muffled sounds of a fierce battle and the screams of dieing soldiers. On the other side of the vast room, you see shiliskin hurriedly preparing for a siege. Emperor Draygun appears to be among them. . .

Speak with Emperor Draygun 0/1 (Imperial Bazaar)

You say, 'Hail, Emperor Draygun'

Emperor Draygun says 'Praetorian, where have you been? The drachnid forces have almost breeched this chamber! Hold them off! I need time to wrest our salvation from Shadowspine.'

Fend off the Incoming War Swarm Invaders 0/1 (Imperial Bazaar)

Kill the Drachnid Commander 0/1 (Imperial Bazaar)

You hear a dull crash as the drachnid battering ram hits the reinforced chamber door.

A shiliskin legionnaire yells, 'The door won't hold much longer! Gather your blades! Defend the emperor!'

It is recommended you set yourselves up in the room behind Emperor Draygun, with the shiliskin legionnaires.

The door buckles as its heavy coral bolt explodes inward. Drachnids pour in. 'Fan out!' their commander barks. 'If it has less than eight legs, kill it!'

The foundation of the entire city rumbles as something massive slams into the city gate.

A shiliskin runner shouts, 'Emperor Draygun! The Korlach leviathan has turned on the city! Our priests have lost control! We need to evacuate!'

Kill off several drachnids in the first wave to spawn a second wave. The second wave includes Commander Oboroth.

You have slain Commander Oboroth!

The commander drops either a Hammer of Striking or a Shiliskin Commoner's Shawl, as well as six Shards of Wisdom. Have each group member loot a shard.

Speak with Emperor Draygun 0/1 (Imperial Bazaar)

Now speak with Emperor Draygun, who then turns into Lich Emperor Draygun.

I have it! The ritual is complete! My army shall never fall! Now, all who stand in Illsalin, embrace death and be reforged in the eternal strength of Shadowspine.

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Undershore.

Speak with Jarzarrad the Prophet 0/1 (Undershore)

Return to Jarzarrad in Undershore.

Well done. You are proving to be most resourceful. Now that you have seen the power of Shadowspine unleashed firsthand, you will be resistant to its draining effects when you confront Draygun in the future. Speak with Jarzarrad when you're [ready] to proceed on your quest.



The Hammer of Striking transmutes to:
Glowing Coral-Encrusted Maul (level 51-60)
??? (level 61-70)

The Shiliskin Commoner's Shawl transmutes to:
Shilgrave Lieutenant's Mantle (level 51-60)
Pristine Shroud of the Fallen Guard (level 61-70)



A fourth task, "Flights of the Seeker", follows this one.

You can't bring plat into the mission but you can bring the alt currency. The secret to keeping your merc in the mission past 15 minutes is using Bayle Marks. Get some from the marketplace or the loyalty merchant and reclaim them in the alt currency tab. The mercs eat 1 mark for every 15 minutes..

Tried the mission on Hard the first time. It took me some time but i was finally able to beat it. I checked Hero's Journey achievements, Conquest and went to The Depths of Darkhollow. I didn't get credit for the mission for some reason. I had done all the previous missions on hard difficulty as well as the ones after this one given from Jarzarrad the Prophet. I tried logging out and then back in but no luck so I decided to give it a try again on Normal difficulty. I completed it again and did not get the checkmark for the quest. It seems to be bugged. Maybe because its a monster mission instead of a regular one. EDIT: Checked my other characters. They were all given credit for the tasks. Oddly the only one that didn't get credit was the one i used to request the task.

EDIT: okay checked again. How odd that logging out and then back in didn't show the update properly. I guess the task itself is not bugged but for some reason the achievement wasn't showing up. In the past logging in and out would properly update the achievements. I guess i will need to show some more patience. It would have saved me plenty of time.

I can confirm that you can tank your mercs inside. They become lvl 70 mercs to match your shroud and are not very effective whatsoever if you have a tank merc. The crumple since they have lvl 70 merc stats instead of the improved stats like the shiliskin shroud does but the conviction helps if you have a healer merc.

Mercenaries are allowed in this MM:

HOWEVER, YOU HAVE NO MONEY TO PAY THEM ONCE YOU GET THERE. THEY WILL IN ALL LIKELIHOOD BE PERMANENTLY 'DISMISSED' AND YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO BUY ANOTHER MERC AFTER THE MISSION ENDS.

The best method I've come up with for remedying this is to hail Brother Still Pool right after you have paid your merc, in order to buy you 15 minutes of time with which to complete all/most of the mission.

This was my first time doing this series of missions...70.x. Anyhow, this mission seemed like it was gonna be a breeze, since there was plenty of useful help and posts before i attempted it. Not knocking anyone's posts....but spent a total of 5 hours doing this and succeeded. Saw a few minor changes in char setup vs. what others recommended. (Prob just personnal pref as to how you wanna do it, really).

First go around, my grp consisted of 2 war's, enc, and clr; could see right away botting 2 war's didn't work so well when you had to chase mob when it runs at under 20%. Scrapped it, and got same mission, but decided to use 1 war, 1 wiz, 1 enc and 1 clr. If you have four ppl, botting or not, this setup was slow but very effective IMHO.
True, the wiz DPS isn't great, but it's a MM, not in game EQ wiz....DPS wasn't bad...but the snare was a very nice touch to have so the mobs slowly walked away,(when it stuck) --- always tried to make sure i started casting snare at 30%, so if it was resisted, u had another chance or two to get it to stick.

As far as the task updates go, like most said - the 11th kill on the first wave sends a new wave in. The second wave was sort of unclear to me, as to # of mobs to kill to get task update, before killing named. This is what i saw: on the second wave, let them all reset to spawn points then repeat like first wave. We pulled 13 mobs (from second wave) and still did not get task update concerning the wave task. So we decided to pull Named and see if it DID update it....this IS correct....pulling and killing the named DID update both tasks for "wave" and Named.

BTW, you start as a lvl 70 char in MM.
Notes: War should max all def AA's...don't worry about too much offensive AA stuff...rarely got any crit's anyhow, so 2nd time around, i redid all war AA's to go max Def. not even the AE taunt AA, waste of pts. IMO.

    Key strats
: First time around i did the Legionnaire thing BEFORE i hailed Emp. Draygun....NOT the thing to do,lol. Soon as spiders come close to 'em, they aggro Legion's and the are toasted :(
2nd: we succeeded 2nd mission try, w/out any help from Legion's. I did same Hail thing, but to no avail, same deal, KoS and they all died, again. ( If you were to try and use them, maybe try "rocking" 3rd and run them back to your camp, inside Emp. room, not on ramp, may help /shrugs)
3rd: Use enc for SLOWS only, mezz never did stick, and pulled aggro anyhow.....so try to get ur puller to be patient enough to watch roamer path, and if at all possible, pull singles (less u have a full grp).

DO NOT try to use a caster (mage) to pull Named, he will ony summon and stomp you.

[][]Quick run down on how we ran thru it 2nd time...[/][/]
---------------------------------------------------
1) setup char AA's...
2) all in grp ran to room behind Emperor
3) "Hailed Emp" ( didn't bother with Legionnaries, cause first msission i botched "when" to hail and rock em. So didn't try again.)
4) Let first wave set itself
5) used puller (war) to try and single pull each mob, if there were 2+, i'd sac it, and try again. Since mezz never seemed to work, wasn't going to rely on it being effective for us. May be the slow, painful way of doing it, with rez effects and waiting, but i'm kinda conservative and careful on pulling in game, so.....(that's my style =P)
6) after killing the 10th mob, all medded to full, pulled 11th mob...after 11th died, 2nd wave resets in zone, they all place themselves where the previous mobs were.
7) repeat as it it were first wave....except there are ONLY 2 waves....we got to the 13th mob dead....and wave task did not update...so proceeded in pulling Named. Tried first time pulling named, with wiz, figured long range cast be worth a try, wrong. Summoned = dead in 1 sec. Recommend waiting to pull Named until he is on 2nd tier lvl at bottom of ramp...had clr cast HoT on me, then pulled with throw stone,(gotta get kinda close to use it). Pulled Named all the way back to ramp near Emp. so if we did die, we wouldn't get corpse camped by him in room.
8) waited to use war Disc (def one, forgot name already =P...pain"something") one that increases ur AC and lowers ur attk output, seemed to time it's duration @ 2.5min or so...(burned def disc on second pull of Named),almost same amount of time it took to get Named down to 5% hp before we wiped. Lag spike hit and clr's heal never landed so we wiped.
Third attempt on Named, didn't have def disc ready, so tried again....mob enraged, slow never landed....wasn't pretty!
Okay,4th try....(def disc still 10min from being ready --- figured it was lost cause not having it ready)....slow landed first try, heals all hit....wiz nuked away......snare DID land at 30%....KEY:--- try to have war turn *OFF* auto-attack when Named is at @ 12-15% HP. Why? If auto-attack is *OFF*, they won't take near the damage when Named enrages, trust me....it works...
War still taunting, even tho attk was off....just to hold aggro, even used throw stone every so often to keep aggro. BAM ! Named went down, updated both wave task AND Named task.
All looted a shard and hailed Emp to exit MM. Shoulder pc dropped, but from all info i could read on this, the boot time after Named kill was like 30 secs....we had better, anyhow....Hailed and left MM. ....entering Undershore....hailed Jaz and got update for completion. At lvl 73 we all had exp going 100% to reg, no LoTD or anything exp bonus (cept the +25% exp bonus ongoing from SOE for Frostfell), we got a whopping 10% reg !!!! Shocked me that we got that much reg exp.


I hope this clarifies this mission a little more...great previous posts, but was missing some info i was wanting for myself, going into this.

Overall time on first try...@ 1 hour, saw it wasn't gonna work with our setup...spent too many offensive AA's on war's (waste-O time)...
Second try...approx. 3 hrs. Like i said, i was pulling cautiously, and sac'ed when 2+ mobs came. So i had alot of rez effect D/T.

My philosophy is to spend more time doing something right and finishing it the first time, rather than flying thru it, only to fail multiple times and taking longer to accomplish the same thing ;0

Hope this helps ya....(maybe rate this post, if it helped at all)....thanx

Incorrect.

I've done this MM more times than I'd like to admit (come on, 3 AA per run due to the AA scaling? With each run taking no more than 15 mins?) and I always use the chanter to pull the Commander. I stand it on the ledge with a clear view of the entrance and as soon as I can target the commander (when he walks through the archway, assuming he doesn't go LEFT instead of down the ramp), I hit Lethargy and run back to the group and thru the hidden wall. By the time the commander gets to the war (who is standing in front of Emperor Draygun), it's easy to tag him and get to beatin' him down.

I don't know where you got that summoning bit from. I've done this twice tonight (and still going) and that's always been the strat I used. 15 mins from Brother Stillpool hail to Prophet hail (unless the Commander goes left, which adds about 5 mins due to war kamikaze pulling him close to camp so chanter can pull him to the pets).

FYI, i said DO NOT use a "Mage" to pull, meaning do not pull named with a DD spell......you also misread or mistyped your info....for you said you pulled using an Enc. There is a difference between an Enc and a Mage.....so just don't pull named with a mage. Try it once and you will see that the mage does get summoned when using a DD to pull named. Wasn't really doing the 70.x series for aa's anyhow, was progressing to 70.5 for shield drop. So if my grp did it twice, i think getting the second try done in 40 minutes was pretty good, IMO.
I know you were trying to help correct my post, but way i see it...you are incorrect on your info, as far as what line you replied to on mine. Try using a mage DD to pull Commander.....you WILL be summoned !
All i was trying to do was clarify some missing info from previous posts so that others may find it easier to accomplish this MM w/out so many subtle "unkonwns". =P

First of all, pulling with a mage is fine just use thunder with no aas into magic dmg. Won't do enough dmg for the mob to summon. Second, use the mages and the enchanter, pull with slow and let the legionaires tank after you get them into the room. Third, explore the pulling somewhat to see what mobs you can avoid and pull the named from the second or third platform when he spawns. I can three box this and get it down to 20 mins leaving me 25 min to do whatever i want. With a 4th box/person I can generally get it down to 15 min easily. Only use Caustic Comet, Fire, and Thunder for dps on the mobs as any AoE will **** off the legionaires and get you killed. Spell haste and mana pres or increased fire dmg (do spell haste first) for mages. Spell haste, run speed, and if you can mana pres as well for the enchanter. Nuke yourself if you get dotted (at least on zek you go to shadowrest if you die to dot and can't get back in). Thunder is your friend when your dotted because when you get low enough it's fast enough to kill you before the dot finishes you off.

Also, forgot to add that on the first mission attempt, if everyone in mission dies at once...it does NOT boot you from mission. We tried it several times since we wanted to changed the char setup. Only way to get out of mission was all dropped task.

We now get REZ EFFECTS when you die. No more throwing yourself on a spider when the healer is OOM to get back a min later with 50% mana. NOW you start (after death) with 15% mana and have to sit for SEVERAL mins just to get back to full.

A lot of old (wrong) information
# Oct 07 2008 at 5:10 AM Rating: Decent

First some Questions answered:
(1) How do you get the Legionnaires to "help"
Answer: Many ways but the "best" way is to HAIL the first 2 (two) and "ROCK" the third as you run by. Yes, they will kill you, BUT they will be ready to fight when the spiders come. (ROCK - throw stone, or hit)

(2) "Counting on Spiders" After you have killed 10 spiders, killing #11 will cause the final wave to start. Again, killing 11 spiders starts the last wave.

(3) The Commander - He is on his "own" faction, spiders will NOT help him. BUT if you agro the spiders they will be more than happy to kill you. You can (long distance) pull the commander through all the spiders and they will not come.

(4) Hail Emperor Draygun AFTER everyone has looted a shard. Once again "best" way to handle this is for the "Mission Specialist" (Person who got the mission) to do ALL the hails, IN and OUT of mission. Mission Specialist "job" is to get mission and make sure everyone gets a shard AND exp. It is also "best" to wait for everyone to exit MM and return to Undershore before hail, to avoid possible problems on lost exp.

Now, what makes me "expert" enough to post this message? I've done well over 2,500 runs of THIS MM, AND STILL LEARNING.

Did this in 14 min 3 boxing WAR, CLR, and ENC also Commander spawns is after 12 or 13 mobs killed. War can pull the whole thing ENC slows and mezzes and CLR does his thing. Dont waste the time with a rogue not needed. This mission rocks if you only have a few min to play

Anyone else experience a problem being KOS to the Shil Pets in the 70.3 missions? On only 2 of my toons no matter if I get the missions or another person does, I am KOS to the pets. Seems like there is some faction fixing that needs to be done even in a Monster Mission form.
Any suggestions ?

easy to do with a rogue and enchanter..dont need anything else the shilliskin can tank the chanty can mez the rogue can pull mage is a nice touch for dps though
after you spawn the commander you don't need to clear up to him you can use the rogue in hide/sneak and dance into oboroth's agro range if he gets agro but doesn't hit you to break invis he will come by himself-other mobs won't assist him

Wave info

upon zoning into the instance, u are actually on the opposite side of the zone that you will respawn at if you die; i suggest right when u get in to run to the other side of the zone. the waves come from the point that u zone in at, and dissipate across the zone. neither of the waves are timed, it seemed that when we almost pulled the entire first wave the second wave came in and dissipated across the zone.

so my group did this:
1) upon entering, we (4 warriors, 2 clerics) set up our skills and hailed the dude to bring the first wave.
2) wiped terribly within a few seconds, however 1 person remained alive so we all respawned at the other end of the zone
3) when all mobs had got into their positions across the zone, we began pulling them 1-2 at a time to our camp near respawn.
4) after clearing atleast half of the first wave, the second wave spawned which spread out across the zone. our group sat and watched this happen, we didnt start pulling till they all stopped.
5) cleared all the way up to the commander, then pulled commander and downed him. he is not any harder than the regular mobs.

this mission took maybe 30 mins, and by far the funnest spell mission of them all.

just did this with 3 cler and 3 warr, a few tips

it's a monster mission so if everyone is dead at once you lose.. you can die and you respawn in the little room behind draygun (that's where we pulled to after the first initial wave)

at first you get jumped by 5 mobs, warrs AE taunted and i spammed with shadowmend,
at the first wave you will probably have a few deaths but try best you can .. everyone in my group died but we managed to get through that first wave. Afterwards you can rest

after the first big wave which is the hardest part really, you can get mostly single pulls. some of the drachnids had a pretty bad DoT AE, but i hid my 3 healers behind a pillar in that back room and it seemed to block it. 1 of the healers was curing the DoT (cure diesease gets it)

i put 1 cleric on each of the 3 warrs and just hit CH (perfect heal) repeatedly, that way if they flopped aggro around i would have a heal INC on them anyway (this was for pulls that were single, 2 mobs at once was a little tougher)

you do NOT need to clear all the mobs.. the last 2 steps ("fend" & boss kill) both complete upon killing the commander. have the tanks use the defensive skill and CH the tanks / spot heal if necc, pretty easy.

Also can zerg the event if really bored.
Everyone do a war or rogue, grab a shiliskin pet, then start it.
If you die, you respawn and charge back in.

DPS and Wizzies, Rogues and Warriors

Did the mission twice (well, three times if you include the point where we gave up because our set-up was too slow). The first time we had two wizzies - our DPS sucked big time.
The second time, I parsed DPS of the warriors against the rogues - the Warriors were outdamaging the rogues significantly. The rogues were out-damaging what the wizzy could do.
In summary - stick with warriors - they have the best DPS.

Reccomended grouping - CLR, ENC, WAR (puller), WAR (MT), WAR (DPS), WAR (DPS) - maybe swap the enchanter for a cleric, if you're confident that you have a good puller.

<< DO NOT HAIL THE EMP DURING THE FINAL STAGES OF THE TASK UNTIL EVERYBODY HAS LOOTED >> seriously, my entire group lost out of exp AND the task reset itself when attempting to zone back in.

5 boxed this, classes i used were cle, rog, rog enc, war.. you can single everything in the zone. Commander spawns after you either clear to a certain point or kill a certain amount of mobs. some mobs you can skip, you should recognize them when you see them calculating in their agro range. ..was the easiest of the spell missions so far..
Done it??

Is there any way to check if you have this task on a character? As there is no "real" reward theres nothing to check it off against.

Do you remember being an illsalin, fighting waves of spiders that break into the room, then moving to the named up at the front?

That would be the way.

We did this mission with 1 Warrior, 1 cleric, 1 Enchanter, 3 Rogues. The zone is basicly a long rectangle room with four ramps, making teirs. At the far west end of the room is the zone in where you start out in and were the invasion will spawn; in the far left is Emperor Draygun with a cave leading off behind him going further east. When you die you respawn in the far east cave behing Emperor Draygun.

When you have your AA's and spells set have the entire group move next to the Emperor Draygun on the far east side of the main room. As you go have melee members of the group hail the shiliskin and turn any of them into pets to help out as DPS, if you don't they die anyways. When at camp hail Emperor Draygun and the invasion will start, there will be 4 earthquakes then they will spawn and move throughout the zone. You will be safe on the level with Emperor Draygun, start pulling to there, if you die you will pop in the room near Emperor Draygun's spot; just resume fighting.

When you have cleared to the final teir the net wave will spawn with Commander Oboroth, the earthquakes will be your hint to have everyone in camp near Emperor Draygun's spot. Dispite the notes you do not have to kill all the drachnids to have then next wave spawn. The new wave will take up position in the exact same spots and paths as the prevous round.

Just pull and kill till you can get Commander Oboroth as a single; he wonders the top teir on the east side, your best shot is when he paths down the north side ramp. He hits hard so have the warrior use his defensive like skill and tank the mob down. He enrages at 10% and will run.

Once he is dead quickly loot the crystals and drop item, then hail Emperor Draygun and you will be ported out. Finally hail Jarzarrad the Prophet to complete the mission, DO NOT hail Brother Stillpool again.

Pulling
most of it is basic stuff however the very first puls can be tricky. at the base fo the ramp leading to camp is a archway with a room off of it. there is a spider that wonders the room and stops just inside the doorway. Just outside the room is a wondering mob and just t the east and south is a static. the trick is to pull the one at the doorway without agroing the one inside because he paths out and gets you the third add.

We used the enchanter to pull using slows, invest in run speed and spell haste. the Warrior's stone throw should pull agro away from the enchanter on incomming. If you get more then one just run a ways and mezz one and let the add kill you; then the warrior can pull the messed mob without issue.

Mobs
Commander Oboroth boss mob, slowable, enrages and runs on low life.
drachnids vary in class from warrior to shamans all will run at 15-10% of life, all are slowable.

Deaths
when you die you respawn in the afore mentioned east with 40% mana and health to do not be shy about deaths on pulls. there is almost no buffs to speak of exept the enchanter has a group mana regen which you allways want on.

after killing commander you have little time only to loot the shards and hail the emperor.if you get booted out before looting and hailing you get no reward.when you looted and hailed in time you get ported out and here comes the extra trap :Normally on monster mission zoning out turns the shard into exp and completes the mission,NOT SO HERE.Youre not done untill you hail jarzad (no exp no success before that) so if you hail instead stillpool like every normal person would think that the quest giver will end the quest.DON'T DO THAT !!! you will get your mission reset to the beginning and cant complete it.the final step is hailing Jarrzarad!!!

Another of Soe's stupid design flaws.if the mission works right without bugs or any problems there must be anything that dont works correct or it is not soe design.
No invis anymore

Since PoR patch the Mindbender (Enchanter) cannot cast invisibilty anymore. So you cant move whole team to entrance anymore.

Anybody knows how to make the Shiliskin fight for you??? Hail makes them follow me and sometimes if people of the party die they jump inot fight, but is there a way to always make them fight?

Rogues fight barehanded cause they have higher dps then with weapons (strange but true).

EDIT:
Ok with help from Magecompendium I got it worked. On first Hail the Lego becomes your pet, you can see that as a purple HP Bar below char lika normal pet. After pet owner dies all of the 3 “pets” were removed and the Legos stood where they were. Since then they attacked all incoming Mobs at once. –Shrug- a bit strange, but finished mission after that in 40 min.
