This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Talontar (click for map image) in the Dark Reign camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum level 55
- Minimum "apprehensive" faction with Dark Reign

Hail him to get a quest window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Lavaspinner's Locals'.

Our research shows that the inhabitants of Lavaspiner's Lair developed a natural defense to the heat of the area. We need you to bring back a few specimens so we can experiment with them. Bring back some ionized ore, drake wings, and magma carapaces.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.



Touch the cave entrance to Lavaspinner's Lair 0/1 (The Broodlands)

This will be marked on your compass (far southern instance entrance).



Defeat drakes to obtain the rare minerals needed from the area 0/15 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

Defeat dervishes to obtain the rare minerals needed from the area 0/15 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

Defeat spiders to obtain the rare minerals needed from the area 0/15 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

Loot drake scales from drakes for research purposes 0/5 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

Loot ionized ore from dervish for research purposes 0/5 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

Loot magma carapace from lavaspinners for research purposes 0/5 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

You need to kill 15 of each:

- Drakes
- Dervishes
- Lavaspinner spiders

You need to loot five of each:

- Drake Scales
- Ionized Ore
- Magma Carapace



Make your way back to the entrance with your specimen 0/1 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

Good. These shall prove to be most beneficial. Go now and bring havoc to the lands.


Rewards:
Up to 41 Ebon Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Dark Reign Token" (faction turn-in item)

We were able to obtain this with indifferent faction at level 55. Received token and 15 ebon crystals at that level.

The task is easy. There are plenty of mobs to kill to fulfill the requirements, except that the research pieces (scales, ores, carapaces) do not drop off every creature.

Dervishes dropped ore 4 times out of 5.
Spinners dropped carapaces 4 times out of 5.
Drakes dropped scales 1 time out of 4.

The scales drop could have been unlucky.

Total time spent in task was very close to 2 hours. Other tasks given by Talontar can be completed in an hour, so this task is inefficient for crystal gathering. However, some tasks seem to have a higher vendor-trash drop rate and this one ranks high for after-task split.

Less crystals per hour of effort, but far more plat from trash. Very enjoyable break from just drakes.

Same as Boldger's task for NK. Quest given by Talontar for DR. Copy and pasted from the NK version with a few changes.

Tasks:
1) Touch the cave entrance to Lavaspinner's Lair
2) Defeat 15 drakes to obtain the rare minerals needed from the area
3) Defeat 15 dervishes to obtain the rare minerals needed from the area
4) Defeat 15 spiders to obtain the rare minerals needed from the area
5) Loot 5 drake scales from drakes for research purposes
6) Loot 5 ionized ore from dervish for research purposes
7) Loot 5 magma carapace from lavaspinners for research purposes
8) Make your way back to the entrance with your specimen

The exit is not same place you zoned in to. The approximate location is -450, -700 (as you come from the drake area to the dervishes, it is the first north dead end). Once you are close to the exit you have completed the task.

Reward:
Dark Reign Token
41 Ebon Crystals for a Level 68 average group.
