|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group mission is the third 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:
- Completion of "Shipping Lanes"
- Completion of "Pirate Stew"
At the end of the previous task, you saw:
It seems that the galigaba are not behind the missing ships and are just up to their normal cannibalistic trickery. Perhaps there is some [other force] on the island behind the disappearances.
You say, 'What other force?'
Gus Longear says 'Ah well drat. Seems those cannibals been up to pretty much the same thing they always be up to, fightin' amongst theyselves. That really only leaves those poor [drowned souls].'
You say, 'What drowned souls?'
Gus Longear says 'Yarrr, bit o' a curse surrounding those folk. Man by the name o' Rum Red lost his ship to Prexus and didn't take a likin' to that you see. He decided to stick around, and kept his crew with him! Might be enough to spur some ship sinkin' of their own. Let me know what you find.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Drowned Dead'.
Since the galigaba are behaving themselves, it's possible that the cursed undead pirates of Deadbone Reef are behind the attacks. Travel to Deadbone Reef and investigate the drowned dead and their ghostly leader, Rum Red. When you are ready to leave Deadbone Reef, find the rowboat and get back out to sea.
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.'
Kill 30 drowned 0/30 (Deadbone Reef)
Explore a cave entrance south of the sunken ship 0/1 (Deadbone Reef)
This is a vertical cave underwater in the cove, south of the sunken ship. It can be difficult to spot (there are two caves; you want the one in the area of 2900, -4000, 228).
Kill any 30 undead "a drowned _____" mobs, and explore the cave to open up the next step. Upon doing the location update, you see:
Rum Red shouts, 'Leave us be! Is it not enough that we suffer from this terrible curse? Now I must bend my will and my people to the whims of a perverse necromancer who gives us no peace. It is too much to ask! BEGONE!'
NOTE: Don't kill Rum Red until you have all 30 kill credits, or you may bug the task.
Find Rum Red within the caves and destroy him! 0/1 (Deadbone Reef)
Rum Red is straight down in the bottom of the cave. He hits for a max ~1,700, has ~75,000 hitpoints, and spawns timed piranha adds that hit for a max 350. Rum Red and the piranhas are mezzable and stunnable.
Rum Red clatters its bones together as it moves in to attack.
Rum Red has been slain by _____!
Rum Red's corpse's eyes dim as the grim light of unlife leaves its eyes.

You say, 'Hail, Gus Longear'
Gus Longear says 'It seems that a necromancer named Kenox has been using the drowned for his nefarious purposes. There must be a way to get his [attention] and get to the bottom of this!'
