|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This 54-player raid task begins with Fergarin Bardon I in Valdeholm, who is located in the back room behind Wraithguard Heimgul, at +770, -780, -25.
In order to request this task, you must have completed Fergarin's three group tasks and two prior raid tasks, "Kill Kangur" and "Udengar the Traitor."
At the end of the previous task, there was one small thing to [take care of].
You say, 'What's left to take care of?'
Fergarin Bardon I says 'I have done my best to ensure King Odeen that you are worth speaking with. Avoid any confrontations with the other citizens of Valdholm if at all possible on your way.'
You have been assigned the task 'Speak with the King'.
Fergarin has done his best to convince people close to King Odeen that you are worth speaking with. He asks you to avoid confrontations with other citizens of Valdeholm. They will not understand your reasons for being in the city and will probably attack you.
Exit the southern door and proceed carefully to the palace to the north.
Exit the black market area through the southern door 0/1 (Valdeholm)
This instanced zone is entered through the same door as the Kangur and Udengar raids.
Convince King Odeen to give you the key to Undercrypt 0/1 (Valdeholm)
This is quite the undertaking.
Royal Captain Gurangor
The king's palace is located in the northeastern section of Valdeholm. Outside the front gate you will find Royal Captain Gurangor and cohorts:
- Arch Wizard S`Sitari, four Wizards of Zek (each of which cast the spell Ether Flame)
- Lead Archer Hoseph with a number of Archers of Zek
- Warguard Hanlo
- High Priest Utok
Herald Kelion, who is at the bottom of the hill from the palace, begins the event:
You say, 'Hail, Herald Kelion'
Herald Kelion says, 'You should not have ventured here... Unless you are foolish enough to [challenge] the might of [Royal Captain Gurangor].'
You say, 'We challenge the might of Royal Captain Gurangor.'
Herald Kelion says, 'Your challenge is accepted. Prepare yourselves for the wrath of Valdeholm's finest!'
Kill all of the giants including Royal Captain Gurangor who drops two items out of this list:
- Earring of the Ageless
- Holmguard Pauldrons
- Lorekeeper's Veil
The Royal Captain Gurangor event has a lockout timer. The remainder of the task can take 2-3 hours depending on your raid makeup, and there are no lockouts from here on out.
King Odeen: In the Throne Room
After the Royal Captain event the gate to the palace unlocks and you may proceed towards King Odeen's throne. Upon arriving you find King Odeen, Faelig Bearcaller, and Hethgar the Fell standing there. They aggro upon approach. Behind Odeen's throne is High Lorekeeper Thair. You'll want to kill Hethgar the Fell, Faelig Bearcaller (who summons a bear named "Bearclaw"), and High Lorekeeper Thair; leaving Odeen for last. Doing this out of order may cause this part of the event to reset.
Hethgar the Fell flurries and enrages.
Faelig Bearcaller AE rampages and enrages. Bearclaw has no special abilities.
High Lorekeeper Thair enrages and casts an AE mez:
Ritual of the Rapt: PB AE 300', Magic (-550)
King Odeen flurries and AE rampages.
Hethgar the Fell has been slain by _____!
Hethgar the Fell's corpse falls to the rime encrusted ground.
Faelig Bearcaller has been slain by _____!
Faelig Bearcaller's corpse freezes in place.
Bearclaw has been slain by _____!
Bearclaw's corpse loses its footing just before crashing into the snowy terrain.
High Lorekeeper Thair has been slain by _____!
High Lorekeeper Thair's corpse falls.
Upon taking King Odeen to 69% health you receive the following emote:
King Odeen flees up the stairs and disappears through the door.
King Odeen: In the Meeting Room
Proceed up the steps behind the throne to find the second part of Odeen's event. You'll find Commander Clanghor the Savage and 8 Royal Guardsman. You must kill the guardsmen and the Commander to proceed with the event.
Commander Clanghor the Savage flurries, AE rampages, and enrages. He also doesn't like spellcasting (this has what effect, if any?):
Commander Clanghor the Savage grows furious, 'If you insist on using magics in this battle, you cowards, then I shall be forced to teach you a lesson!'
Commander Clanghor the Savage has been slain by _____!
Commander Clanghor the Savage's corpse pitches forward and bleeds across the ice.
After the Commander has fallen, you may proceed by opening the three doors that are in his room. Only one of these doors spawn King Odeen and his 6 named guards. The other two will spawn 6 Royal Guardians inside them (6 per door, these are different than the Royal Guardsmen). The room that has the King and his named guards is random every time; if you are lucky enough to pick the correct door on the first try, you do not have to bother with the remaining doors.
Here you will find (in addition to King Odeen):
Serjar, Highkeeper of Arts
Geriok, Highkeeper of War
Rentik, Highkeeper of Ages
Teltet, Highkeeper of Crypts
Wigni, Highkeeper of Ritual
a Highkeeper revenant
IMPORTANT: Kill all the other nameds BEFORE you bring Odeen down to 50% health. If Odeen hits 50% before the nameds are dead, you chance him locking his health permanently.
Upon taking King Odeen to 49% health you receive the following emote:
The Lorekeepers place their king into a protective stasis.
King Odeen warps back to his throne room and begins running across the zone towards the hotsprings area.
King Odeen: At the Springs
Your raid must backtrack to the hotsprings where you'll find Odeen back at 70% health (he regens). During this part of the event he calls for help from much of the surrounding trash. You'll have to fight him while dealing with a lot of adds. Take him to 34% at which point you see:
King Odeen rushes out the city gate in a desperate attempt to flee his deadly foes.
King Odeen: On the Bridge to Icefall
This is the final stage of the event. King Odeen warps onto the bridge area and upon moving your raid there you find he is surrounded by several shieldman NPCs which guard both sides of the bridge. They cast a knockback on anyone trying to get by them. Group/Target DA + COH should help with this.
Take the King down from 50% health (he's regen'd again). During this part of the event you must deal with several shieldman NPC's and King Odeen at the same time. Upon taking King Odeen to 14% health you receive the following emote, and the King's health locks up again, preventing you from killing him:
King Odeen shouts 'I surrender! I can not defeat you! Do not kill me! I don't want to be one of . . .them. . . I'll do anything.'
An icebound chest spawns with additional loot:
- Essence of Speed
- Everlasting Forge Coal
- Gefia's Gift
- Girdle of Stone Strength
- Glowing Obsidian Rune
- Highkeeper's Haven
- Lute of Longing
- Robe of the Driving Rains
- Sleetstorm Leggings
You say, 'Hail, King Odeen'
King Odeen says 'Please,' the great king of the Krithgor appears to be near tears, 'don't kill me! I don't want to be like them. I don't want to turn into one of them. I'll give you anything. I'll tell you the only [secret] that I have left.'
You say, 'What secret?'
King Odeen says 'I know the words that will allow you in to the roayl crypts! Perhaps you can find something there to stop this insanity.' King Odeen sniffles. 'Certainly one of my great ancestors can be convinced to help us. I know they have been made to walk again by, by those things! Maybe they can help us. Just please don't hurt me.'
Your task 'Speak with the King' has been updated.
Speak with Fergarin Bardon I 0/1 (Valdeholm)
You say, 'Hail Fergarin Bardon I'
Fergarin Bardon I shakes his head, his brow furrowed. 'I. . . You destroyed so much, so many. . .just leave me. If you plan to make use of that key, speak with Commander Haesgrin. Perhaps you can redeem the evil you. . . we have done today.'
Your task 'Speak with the King' has been updated.
Your faction with Wraithguard Leadership has gotten better.
You receive a character flag!
You see in yellow text:
Fergarin did not seem pleased with the swath of destruction you left in his city or the way you humiliated his King. He is obviously not too thrilled about the part he played in this matter, however, he would like to offer you the opportunity to [set things straight].
Completion of this event allows you to request the first Frostcrypt raid.
