    This task is the first in a series of three and begins with Guard Captain Parvus at location -604, -7, -31 in Katta Castrum (inside one of the tents just south of the central pyramid).

    You say, 'Hail, Guard Captain Parvus'

    Guard Captain Parvus glances over you quickly as you approach. 'Well you're rather small for a _____, aren't you? Oh well, you're here, so I'll make use of you. I'd thought the council had forgotten about sending me a [special agent]. Let's go to work quickly. The shissar threat isn't getting any smaller while we stand here yammering!'

    You say, 'I'm a special agent...'

    Guard Captain Parvus says ' Indeed _____. You've been chosen for a very special mission, but first I need to make sure you're up to the challange. Feel like slicing up some [serpents]?'

    You say, 'Serpents?'

    You have been assigned the task 'The Serpent Slayer'.

    Guard Captain Parvus wishes you to prove your worth by slaying several of the invading shissar. Thin out their ranks and return to the captain.

    Thin the Shissar ranks 0/20 (Katta Castrum)

    In this task, you must kill any 20 shissars in Katta Castrum. They are found all over the outskirts of the city.

    Speak with Guard Captain Parvus 0/1 (Katta Castrum)

    You say, 'Hail, Guard Captain Parvus'

    Guard Captain Parvus says, 'Good work. We have a good start but the Shissar numbers are greater than we anticipated. There is still much to be done if we want to make a [dent] in the attacks.'

    Your faction standing with Combine Empire Merchants got better.


    Reward Options:
    #1 - Faction, Experience, Dusty Pottery Splinter
    #2 - Faction, Experience, Dusty Pottery Piece
    #3 - Faction, Experience, 75pp

    Completion of this task leads into the next task in Parvin's series, 'Battling the Shissar'.

    At level 77 I got 30 percent AAxp for this, using the XP choice not the faction choice.

    --Morro


    edit:
    I finally took my druid over to the greenhouse to kill some shissar. My Necro and Enchanter have both been there.

    so here's some druid notes:

    He's level 72.
    Snare works great. A few resists but with SOE it's easy to outrun them.
    When he got snared by a shissar it was pretty easy to out run them till it wore off. I seemed to only get snared if they hit me (and not all the times) so my advice is don't let them hit you, even if you're not worried about being killed.

    All my dots and nukes seemed to work well. It takes a while to kill one with wimpy druid dots, my Necro was so much faster. Be sure to nuke while the Dots are ticking away. I was kiting since I had a 68 warrior buddy helping out but you could root if you wanted with the downside being you can't nuke.

    We only managed to kill 3 or 4 before repops

    The 2nd step in this task is just hailing Guard Captain Parvus once done.

    You say, 'Hail, Guard Captain Parvus'

    Guard Captain Parvus says, "Good work. We have a good start but the Shissar numbers are greater than we anticipated. There is still much to be done if we want to make a [dent] in the attacks."

    ("Dent" starts the new task)

    You then get the reward:
    Your faction standing with Combine Empire Merchants got better.
    You have successfully been granted your reward for: The Serpent Slayer
