    This task begins with Archon Darianna Althus in the Oceangreen Hills (on the first floor inside the fort). You must have completed all three of Tabron Caulria's quests and both of Sergeant Bronal Cadran's quests before she'll speak to you.

    Archon Darianna Althus says 'Greetings ______, you are welcome among us as your actions show you to be a friend of Oceangreen. Even Bronal has spoken well of your efforts, something he is not wont to do for just anyone. The Light of the Truthbringer surely follows your footsteps. But enough with the pleasantries, the spreading plague does not rest, and so our [struggle] must continue.'

    You say 'What struggle?'

    Archon Darianna Althus says 'Tabron was rather impressed by your assistance in curing the plague corrupting the beasts across our lands, however I do not share in his desire for peaceful resolution. Mithaniel Marr demands this evil taint's destruction, and destroy it we will! The time has come to take the offensive! Are you [willing to serve] Mithaniel Marr and bring the burning sword of truth against the followers of Bertoxxulous?'

    You say 'I am willing to serve.'

    Archon Darianna Althus says 'Excellent! Though the courage of Mitahniel Marr flows through you, I fear this will not be enough. I implore you to see assistance in this crusade as your task will not be easy. If you are interested ______, I may have [other work] for you as well.'

    You say, 'What other work?'

    A task window pops up. Select "Thinning the Rank."

    You have been assigned the task 'Thinning the Rank'.

    The corpses littering the fortress area are beginning to infect the people within and they must be cleaned up before the plague spreads out of control. Find and destroy these plague bombs in and around Bayle's fortress.

    Destroy the corpses infecting the fortress and the surrounding area. 0/6 (Oceangreen Hills)

    This is quite simple: Attack and kill the zombie corpses found about the fortress area.

    Kill the zombie bombardiers attacking the fortress. 0/5 (Oceangreen Hills)

    Not so simple: Surrounding the catapults in the area are groups of 4-6 zombie bombardiers. They have a good amount of hitpoints and hit for a max ~1,800 or so.

    Map Locations of the catapults:
    P 643.4725, -4878.1372, 7.7917, 0, 0, 0, 3, Zombie_Catapult
    P 905.4105, -4639.1050, 42.4572, 0, 0, 0, 3, Zombie_Catapult
    P 501.0632, -4422.0269, 106.8760, 0, 0, 0, 3, Zombie_Catapult

    Report your progress in the cleanup efforts to Archon Althus. 0/1 (Oceangreen Hills)

    You say, 'Hail, Archon Darianna Althus'

    Darianna thanks you heartily as the effects of the plague have already begun to fade.

    Your faction standing with Bayle's Irregulars got better.
    Your faction standing with Residents of the Glade got better.
    Your faction standing with Oceangreen Residents got better.
    Your faction standing with Cirtan, Bayle's Herald got better.

    Most likely Dread Lord Puhnjab did the quest when there was a faction boost in play for 4th of July holiday.

    I entered in your faction hits.

    As with the one before I'm not sure the exact level required, but it's under level 80. Just finished this on my 79 wizard.
    How I did it

    To do the Thining the Ranks quest being an 82 ranger at the time,i used Drifting mist spell to pac a few zombies around the catpults and was able to singel pull untill I got all my kills.Use the same thing to kill the corpses on the ground,pac the ones near the bodies and nuke themabout 3 times each there pretty weak with hardly no HP,,breaking off the nukeing a couple of times to re-pac to make sure they wouldnt wake up and argo,im sure they would because shooting the catpalt will argo them prolly the same for the ammo/corpses.

    The next task Plague from above was tricky but done without killing any zombies,
    Rangers,use your vinlash cascade spell to aoe root.Just train them off to a far away area and root/snare them with vinelash,you will prolly have to go back to argo a few more they dont seem to all come at once,though they prolly would if I ran straight thourgh there ranks at the catpults. I didnt, just got close enough to argo.

    Most likely you will be doing a root/snare nuke and shoot while running around to keep them snared at a distance,and most likely you will pick up more then just the undead goons manning the guns,I got a couple of infected snakes,an infected bat and a gnoll roamer,they roam around all over so remember to keep moving when doing this useing invis when you can(of corse i have the AA invis and hottkeyed)

    Just keep going by the catapult and nukeing it,,best combo I used was summer dew rank 2 since it has an insant recast timer so fast nuking with that spell, and windwhip bite.The catapults dont have munch HP and will burn quick.Do one catapult like this and run to the void,zone to clear argo,rinse and repeat for the other two.

    GL keep the arrows flying straight rangers.
