|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group task begins with Ulgin Darkhammer at location +650, -2035, -15 in the Korascian Warrens (what faction/tasks must be completed before he'll talk to you?).
NOTE: You can't use mercenaries in the instance for this task.
You say, 'Hail, Ulgin Darkhammer'
Ulgin Darkhammer says, 'Good to see an eager face in these mines, traveler. Our work is cut out for us here. We've lost too many dwarves in the explosion which wrought havoc just to the north of us. Murdunk's magic-users conjured a mighty blast to break the Korascian Frogs, but they also opened up a big hole in the Plane of Earth, exposing its [crystal] core.'
You say, 'Its crystal core?'
Ulgin Darkhammer says, 'Aye, and when the Crystal Core was breached, it began growing masses of crystal into what was left of the Warrens up there, and strange crystalline creatures began issuing from the primal energy. They killed the dwarves we sent to [investigate]. A shame, because those primal crystal beasties could be worth a lot; I know a few mages that would love to get their hands on that much raw crystal.'
You say, 'Investigate?'
Ulgin Darkhammer says, 'There are a few tasks if you're looking for ways to keep busy for Kaigrun. I need someone to do some [scouting], some harvesting of crystalline [fluids], some gathering of crystalline [organs] for study, and perhaps you can make matters easier for us by knocking off the crystalline creature who seems to be their [ruler]. Or if you have the help of a few allies, perhaps you might be able to help us deal with the recent growth of crystal [blooms].'
You say, 'What blooms?'
Ulgin Darkhammer says, 'It seems that the death of the Crystal Antiont, which controlled the growth of crystals in the core, has allowed the crystalline entities to 'bloom' out of control. We fear that they might overwhelm the entire warrens if we do not slow their growth. Can you gather some friends and [take care] of this problem for us? This is a big job, you may need about twice as many folks as you usually try such tasks with."
You say, 'I will take care of the problem'
Ulgin Darkhammer says, 'I can transport you nearer to the caves when you are [ready]. Good luck out there."
You have been assigned the task 'The Crystal Bloom'.
You say, 'I am ready'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered the Korascian Warrens.
(Task steps needed.)
A dwarf named Wary ol' Krange is found at location +885, -1685, 42.
You say, 'Hail, Wary ol' Krange'
Wary ol' Krange says, 'Well, so you're one of them they sent. Foolish. When you want to [leave], just tell me so.'
You must kill 30 "bloom" mobs to complete this task. These can be any combination of:
a bloom sphere
a bloom visceront
The bloom spheres and visceronts are normal zone mobs. The bloom crystals are permanently rooted and aren't social with other mobs in the zone. However, they cast several spells:
Crystalline Chill (5 ticks)
1: Decrease Attack Speed by 30%
2: Decrease HP when cast by 3500
3: Decrease Hitpoints by 2000 per tick
Fracture (5 minutes)
1. Decrease AC by 300
Pervasive Crystalline Growth (5 ticks)
1: Decrease Mana by 1500 per tick
2: Adjust Mana (-2000)
The roaming mobs in the zone don't assist the stationary crystals that must be killed. However, other "Bloom Crystals" will assist if they are in proximity.
Note: You may also find a named crystalline sphere called "Fracture" in here. It's snareable/rootable, but summons and hits hard.
Faction with Mitius, Herald of Change
Timeshear Green Fragment Dena
Drops from possible named:
Crystalline Spiked Shield
Fractured Crystalcloth Amice
Spiked Shield of the Recormont
