    This task begins with Banesman Aalthene in Bloody Kithicor at -757.96, -489.80.

    You say, 'Hail, Banesman Aalthene'

    Banesman Aalthene says 'Hello there, _____. We are looking for someone to go into the Commonlands and take some action against the Dark Elf invaders. Our army has obviously been pushed out of the Commonlands, so our influence there is limited. All we can do is send volunteers like yourself into the Commonlands to kill unsuspecting enemies and destroy their supplies. Can we [count] on you to scrape away at the enemy?'

    You say, 'You can count on me'

    Banesman Aalthene says 'Wonderful. Just knowing that we have allies in the Commonlands harassing the enemy warcamps, will lift our fighting spirits immensely.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Acts of Sabotage'.

    The army of Obliteration keeps their secrets hidden in war chests. Aalthene wants you to take a look into a few of them. While you're at it he also asked you to take out some of the knights who are charged with protecting these chests.

    Investigate Some Of The Obliteration Army's Warchests 0/6 (Old Commonlands)

    You only need to open the chests, you don't have to loot in order to get update.

    Two in the camp near Freeport (knights are single pull here).
    Two in the camp at Nektulos zone (careful about zoning - it's a long way back!).
    Two in another camp with houses.


    Kill 6 Obliteration Knights 0/6 (Old Commonlands)

    Faction hits when you kill Obliteration Knights:

    Your faction standing with Thaulen Teir'Duuren got worse.
    Your faction standing with Silla Herald got better.

    Return Back to Banesman Aalthene 0/1 (Bloody Kithicor)

    You say, 'Hail, Banesman Aalthene'

    Your task 'Acts of Sabotage' has been updated.

    Aalthene was pleased with your work, though he seemed a bit too happy about the dark elves you killed.
    Banesman Aalthene says 'Well done! You've been a credit to our alliance. Your actions have helped stem the tide of Dark Elf reinforcements headed this way!'

    Your faction standing with Silla Herald got better.
    You have successfully been granted your reward for: Acts of Sabotage

    I just opened the chests and started running to Bloody Kith zone line. About halfway there the mobs stopped. I did have SoE on. Repeated the 2 chests outside Nek zone line and the 2 outside freeport zl.

    Rather than gating, coh, etc, I aggroed all the mobs in the camp by Freeport and let them chase me to the Army's of Light in the tunnel. They took care of the mobs for me. LOL.

    Tried binding by the freeport ZL, which worked ok. Then /open a chest, take the hits while running to the freeport ZL. Zone into FP and then gate back. Worked a treat. 6 chests easy.
    Very easy task

    OK I took the easy road doing this. Just single pulled and killed the Obliteration Knights one at a time where ever they were an easy pull.

    To loot thte chests I made an "Open" hotkey and would target a chest click "Open" and then Exodus.

    The second way was to sacrifice my merc. I pop''d my healer merc, open the chest ran and when she started healing me and she will because the whole camp was chasing me they all turned on her and then I gated away to safe distance. :) Hope that helps.

    This step is actually 0 / 6, not 0 / 1. You have to open 6 chests as described in the posts below, and you get a task update for each chest, not just one step completed at the end.

    85 bard here. took a group of people and at first started killing the camp sites for the chest to beat up the chest which took a lot of hits to kill, but wasn't till the last camp I learned you can just /open them LOL. Anyway way easy for a bard in your group. /open fade and you have your update with no attacks, how nice and easy.

    Just so ya know.. opening the chest, even with the Army of Obliteration pendant, results in aggro and death.

    Oh, and the location of the houses is -351, -1467, 57. Guarded by live and undead mobs.

    Being a Necro, SK, or Monk means there are more than one kind of death....

    Required to /Open (only) 6 chests (not 6 seperate chests). [Respawn is not instant but fairly quick.]

    "Third set" - SE area of zone, along the EW road where it looks like it forms a large squarish "U" on the map. One right in front of the main building - "you can't miss it", ;) other inside the smaller western structure.

    Being a lazy halfling druid, the part where you open the chest and get aggro and death bothered me. So I tried this, and it worked!

    1) Be sure you have spirit of eagle up, and you are on the tunnel side of the camp
    2) Nuke an obliteroid mob in the middle of the camp whose chest you want to open
    3) Note half the camp comes after you.
    4) Run to the tunnel
    5) Mobs follow you in
    6) Army of Light guards jump all over mobs
    7) Return to camp and pull any mobs who didn't notice the first time,
    repeat steps 3 to 6 until camp is clear
    8) Loot chests in peace and quiet.

    the quest pieces inside the chests seems to just be a duplicate from a piece from the "Questionable Loyalties" task in kithicor

    You open up 6 (six) chest. 2 boxes in 3 different camps.

    we just sent in a monk and had a mage CotH him out. The mobs only agroed the person that opened the chest up.

    Seem to be a quest peice inside the chest. We did not know what they were for

    This quest did work in raid form also FYI
