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

    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.'

    You say, 'Dent?'

    You have been assigned the task 'Battling the Shissar'.

    Guard Captain Parvus says 'It seems that the Shissar have become more specialized and advanced in their strategies. We must work to eliminate their support types or this battle will become futile as they constantly resurrect reinforcements. Are you [prepared] for this objective?'

    You say, 'I am prepared'

    You have been assigned the task 'Battling the Shissar'.

    Guard Captain Parvus says 'Good to hear, soldier. Get out there and destroy them!'

    With the attacks on the city gate lately the guards and the Combine forces have not been able to make their own attacks on the Shissar and begin taking the city back. Help by attacking the Shissar and slay as many as you can!

    Kill 5 shissar templars 0/5 (Katta Castrum)

    Kill 5 shissar firetongues 0/5 (Katta Castrum)

    Kill 5 shissar shadowslithers 0/5 (Katta Castrum)

    Kill 5 shissar revenants 0/5 (Katta Castrum)

    Kill 5 shissar arbiters 0/5 (Katta Castrum)

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

    Your task 'Battling the Shissar' has been updated.

    You say, 'Hail, Guard Captain Parvus'

    Guard Captain Parvus says, "Well done. Your skill in battle has impressed me. Perhaps you are ready for a slightly more [interesting] assignment?

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

    The task "Beheading the Snake" follows this task.

    Revenants were the hardest to find for me, but I found a couple at a camp near the west gate. Loc -277, 2941.

    There is a cluster of 5 tents and about 8 Shissars, of which 2 were revenants.

    You get no credit for killing 'an elite revenant'. Which is a shame, because that spawn seems far more common.

    Then again...they didn't spend 4 years at elite revenant school for nothing, thank you very much.

    If you do the second series of teleporters quest Dangerous Ground these will spawn three at a time with a good mix, I havn't done the last portion of teleporters but i read they spawn four at a time. If you can handle that many mobs might be worth it to just do both at the same time.
    Revenant spawns?

    I've had this task now for ages. Never did get enough shissar revenants. Any trick to spawning those? I went and killed for half an hour or so the other night, and even at 83 (mage) I was pleasantly surprised at the xp. Heck, those shissar go down like a hot knife through butter nowadays.
    question

    Is there any spot in particular were you get a good mix of all 5 or do you have to keep moving around the map to finish this?

    Ending script from the 1st task:

    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."

    You say, 'Dent'

    Guard Captain Parvus says 'It seems that the Shissar have become more specialized and advanced in their strategies. We must work to eliminate their support types or this battle will become futile as they constantly resurrect reinforcements. Are you [prepared] for this objective?'

    You say, 'I am prepared'

    You have been assigned the task 'Battling the Shissar'.

    Guard Captain Parvus says 'Good to hear, soldier. Get out there and destroy them!'

    Objective Instructions:

    Kill 5 shissar templars
    Kill 5 shissar firetongues
    Kill 5 shissar shadowslithers

    ? ? ?

    However, I didnt get the option #3 as the dusty pottery piece.. My option 3 is the 75pp. There was no option 4 for me.

    I am pretty sure the Revs Enrage and the Arbitors do to, if I remember correctly.
    It is DENT not Bent

    It is worth noting that the shissar firetongues summon and the shadowslithers proc a mana drain dot. Arbiters are warriors, and templars are obviously clerics. I don't have any information on revenants yet, I have yet to encounter any. Will update as soon as I have any information.
