    This group task becomes available after the 'Skylance: The Library' task is completed.

    The Codex Artifice which you have recently recovered contains information detailing Druzzil's early attempts at creating a scrykin. During the time, Druzzil crafted the egg of Tallongast the Prototype, the entity that was to be the first scrykin. For reasons unknown, Tallongast was never hatched. According to the Codex Artifice however, Druzzil used a chime created by Ayonae Ro to be the voice of Tallongast. This may be the very chime you seek!

    Enter Skylance Tower and find the Unhatched Egg of Tallongast the Prototype. It is hidden away in the oubliette, the dungeon below Skylance where all things go that are meant to be forgotten.

    Enter Skylance Tower. (1/1) - Arcstone
    You have entered Skylance

    You say "Hail, Arkahn".

    Arkahn says "Greetings, ____. I am Arkahn the Gatekeeper of Skylance. Ao has instructed me to wait here for your arrival. I cannot help you overtly, but I will serve as your guide while you remain in this tower. Tell me, where are you headed? The [oubliette]? The [library]? The [laboratory]? Or perhaps [Daosheen's study]? I can direct you to all these chambers.

    You say, 'the oubliette'

    Arkahn says 'The oubliette lies beyond the portal on this floor. Follow my familiar to the gate and be careful. The oubliette contains many forgotten magical creations, most of which are dangerous, unstable or, quite simply, not meant to see the light of day.'

    Enter the Skylance Oubliette. (1/1) - Skylance

    Recover the Egg of Tallongast the Prototype. (1/1) - Skylance

    Each room in the Oubliette contains a cluster of pulsing eggsacks guarded by a number of low-hitting creeping swarmers. After clearing the mobs around a cluster, break eggs individually. Each egg pops a single level 71 underformed scrykin. Eventually you will find the right egg.. there will be no mob and the egg-breaker will receive the The Prototype Egg of Tallongast on their cursor.

    The zone does repop and the task can be won on a repop as well as "fresh" eggsacks.

    Return the Egg to Ao. (1/1) - Arcstone

    A chest spawns with loot which may be the following:

    Battle-Forged Mace
    Manastitch Cape
    Mask of the Blessed

    Trash drops:

    Scrykin Farseer's Stone

    did this tonight with the thought of wow if I can use merc this'll be easy..but when we zoned in mercs were suspended. thankfully my hubbys sk had close to 50k hp so wasn't to bad.LOL kinda wonder why this is a "raid zone" when its grpable? anyways thought i'd update the info on the zone some..oh ya chars were a 78 wizzy and 88 sk
    why is there so little info!?

    so were killing eggs and the skyrin spawn.. the egg just sits there at half life, and we never kill it. if we keep killing the same egg, "a single level 71 underformed scrykin" keeps popping negating the truthfulness of that statement!

    why is there so little info!?

    WHATEVER you do, don't have an archer hit the egg first. We did that and got the "Task Complete" message, yet no one got the egg. Fu[b][/b]cked by a game glitch yet again.

    Eggs are nukeable, pets will not attack them for some reason though.

    They have about 20k hp I'd estimate, maybe less, they regen quick.

    Unless your a wiz, you wont be able to nuke then run and zone, not easy to kill with one nuke.

    All of the mobs in this mission repop, the roamers, the little guard worms and the eggs. We ended up just clearing the one room to the left over and over again, got the item on about the 4th complete clearing. The little worms seem to have between 3 and 4k hp, the roamers and the egg spawn mobs are normal even and yellow con mobs.

    FYI this zone does respawn. We thought it might just have the swarmers and roamers respawn, but the eggs did too.
