|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group mission is the first in a series of five. It begins with Gus Longear (click for map image), who is located at about 390, 3240 on the northeastern coast of Jardel's Hook in the Buried Sea.
Pre-requisites for requesting:
You say, 'Hail, Gus Longear'
Gus Longear says 'Ahoy there friend. Beautiful day to be on the seas, smellin' the salt and breeze. Ah, days like this were made for a sleek vessel cuttin' through them waters. Here I am stuck on shore lookin' into a [few things] for Jardel.'
You say, 'Few things?'
Gus Longear says 'Yep yep. It seems some of our ships be turnin' up missin' lately. Things aren't lookin' so good so I needs to get to the [bottom] of it.'
You say, 'Bottom?'
Gus Longear says 'Well, Jardel's gotten it into his head that [Deadbone Reef] has got somethin' to do wit' it all. I'm startin' to think he may be right. That place gives me the willies, and the waters there sure have some nasty surprises if'n you don't watch it.'
You say, 'Deadbone Reef?'
Gus Longear says 'Deadbone Reef's a mighty dangerous place, but I could really use a right straight-up set of folks to go have a look-see and [report] back for me.'
You say, 'I'll report back'
Gus Longear says 'If you be up for the job, get to it!'
You have been assigned the task 'Shipping Lanes'.
Explore the island of Deadbone Reef. While there, engage and assess the threat of some of the beings about the island.
Purchase tickets to Deadbone Reef and catch the boat 0/1 (The Buried Sea)
Buy a "Seafarer's Ticket: Deadbone Reef" from Dockmaster Angus at the dock (nearby) and keep it in your inventory. When the ship docks, step onto it and wait for it to sail out to the Buried Sea. Upon zoning, you'll find yourself in an instanced version of the island. (Next to you is a rowboat that serves as your zone-out.)
Dockmaster Angus says 'You look like you've been at sea on a dangerous mission for a while? Perhaps you plan to head back out, in which case you're going to need to purchase another ticket before boarding the Isabeau.'
Go to the beach near your landing point 0/1 (Deadbone Reef)
Explore the beach farthest from your landing point 0/1 (Deadbone Reef)
Go to the north west part of the highlands 0/1 (Deadbone Reef)
Explore around the sunken ships 0/1 (Deadbone Reef)
Find the central cave 0/1 (Deadbone Reef)
The first three location updates are straightforward, on land. For the "sunken ships", this updates in the central area of the waters. The "central cave" is a bit trickier - this is one of the underwater caves - the one on the south bend of the island at about /loc 2900, -4000.
Kill 8 thulii to see if they have gotten more aggressive 0/8 (Deadbone Reef)
Kill 8 gali balalaa to see if they have gotten more aggressive 0/8 (Deadbone Reef)
Kill 8 galigaba to see if they are the cause 0/8 (Deadbone Reef)
Kill 8 deadbone sharks, see if they are strong enough to capsize ships 0/8 (Deadbone Reef)
Kill 8 of the drowned dead to see if their numbers have increased 0/8 (Deadbone Reef)
Mobs in this zone tend to hit for a max ~1,250. All are stunnable and mezzable. None appear to summon. Be warned that underwater fighting can result in some warping, so if you can't handle adds, make sure to keep a bit of a distance between your fight area and other mobs.
Return to the longboat you arrived in 0/1 (Deadbone Reef)
Near the zone-in point is a rowboat. You don't have to use it; just have to walk near it.
Report your findings to Gus Longear 0/1 (The Buried Sea)
You say, 'Hail, Gus Longear'
Gus Longear says 'Arrr. That information be useful. Would ye like to look into this a tad more?'
