|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This task begins with Raxtor Darkpaw in the far southwest of Oceangreen Hills (at the Darkpaw camp). It follows his first task, "Freedom!".
You say, 'Hail, Raxtor Darkpaw'
From here, you'll get one of two responses...
Raxtor Darkpaw says 'You not stinky for human. [Darkpaw clan] need help to stop Blackburrow clan. They dirty, smelly clan all the time. Yip! Now they crazy clan too. Darkpaw clan small now, so you make Blackburrow clan [not be crazy]?'
Raxtor Darkpaw says 'You good human. You not smell too bad either. Bark! Now Raxtor ask big favor for you. Blackburrow clan insane. They steal pups. Do bad things to pups. They dirty clan always, but now they insane. Raxtor ask you to kill Blackburrow leader, Chief Vel'tix. Vel'tix make clan crazy. Yip! With no Vel'tix, Raxtor help Blackburrow clan, lead them to not be crazy. You [help] make Blackburrow clan not crazy?'
Both lead into the task:
Raxtor Darkpaw says 'Yap!'
Raxtor Darkpaw says 'Yip!'
You have been assigned the task 'Beat the Blackburrow Boss'.
Raxtor has learned to trust you and has asked you to do something very important for the Darkpaw clan. They want revenge on the Blackburrow clan for what they have done. They want you to kill the leader of the Blackburrow clan.
Raxtor can't tell you where the new chief of Blackburrow clan resides. He is certain, however, that special guards follow him wherever he goes, and so they will need to be dealt with. Killing the clan leader will achieve the revenge the Darkpaw crave.
Travel to the entrance of Blackburrow and open the door 0/1 (Oceangreen Hills)
The entrance is the same as the non-instanced Blackburrow.
Find the new leader of the blackburrow clan 0/1 (Blackburrow)
This update is in the northeast part of the zone, where the high commanders can typically be found. Location: -78, -370, -35. You'll be knocked back upon approach:
You are thrown back by powerful protective magics.
Find a way to get past the ward 0/1 (Blackburrow)
Blackburrow Runestones drop from gnarl type gnolls throughout the zones. As of a patch in December 2013, you only need one of these items. Previously, you needed at least two, but this is no longer the case.
Approach the knockback area the furthest you can without being pushed back. Click the rune here.
If too far away:
You are very near the lair of the Chief of the Blackburrow gnolls, but not there yet!
With only one clicker (note: no longer applies):
You have weakened the warding, but alone you know you cannot turn it off.
You sense that two separate stones are required to turn off the warding.
You have dropped the wards guarding the chief’s lair.
'Persuade' the leader of the Blackburrow to help you 0/1 (Blackburrow)
You'll have to fight Clan Chief Vel`tix and two burly gnolls (located in the room you just broke into). Kill the two adds and fight the Clan Chief until he emotes at 50%. NOTE: Make sure you don't over-DPS him to the point of killing him, otherwise you may bug the task.
Clan Chief Vel`tix shouts 'Wait! Yip! Stop! I, I surrender. Vel`tix not want to die for crazy [Gnarls]! You kill them, not Vel`tix!'
You say, 'Gnarls?'
Clan Chief Vel`tix says 'Gnarls, the ugly ones! They take away Blackburrow gnolls and do [terrible things] to them. Bark! That why we take Darkpaw pups, so Gnarls not take our pups.'
You say, 'What terrible things?'
Clan Chief Vel`tix says 'Vel`tix not know what they do. Not want to know. You take key. You go fight with Gnarls. Leave Vel`tix and Blackburrow clan alone!'
Receive Vel`tix's key.
Use key Vel'tix to get into hidden area 0/1 (Blackburrow)
Vel`tix, in the last moments of his life, seemed to suddenly break free of some powerful charm magic. The symbol he gave you is obviously potent magic. Now, if you can find the door that it opens you might just figure out what's going on here.
From the base of the waterfall area in lower Blackburrow, go east up a tunnel until you come to a door guarded by two burly gnolls. This is the locked door.
You unlock the door.
The door is unlocked.
Kill the frightening, deformed gnarled gnoll 0/1 (Blackburrow)
Gnarl Sawbones Brankt can be found in the chamber leading up from the doorway. Kill him for the update and get out as soon as possible, as a quick death awaits you if you hang around.
Gnarl Sawbones Brankt shouts 'S... S... So the i... i... invaders arrive! Now I g... ge... G... Get to u... Use m... M... My c... Cutting ssssskills on someone n... New!'
This is a fairly simple fight. He hits for a max ~2,200 and casts one spell: "Lower Limb Amputation Strike".
Lower Limb Amputation Strike: Directional 80', Magic (-300)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 2050 per tick (5 ticks))
2: Decrease Movement by 40%
You have slain Gnarl Sawbones Brankt!
Gnarl Sawbones Brankt's corpse shouts 'Nooooooo! C... C... Come to my aid, b... Brrrr... Brothers!'
You hear a large number of creatures moving your way. You seem to have accomplished your task, perhaps escape is the better part of valor.
Deliver 1 Blackburrow Runestone to Raxtor Darkpaw 0/1 (Oceangreen Hills)
Deliver 1 Vel'tix key to Raxtor Darkpaw 0/1 (Oceangreen Hills)
Raxtor is grateful for your help. He mentions something about his chance to gain control. Whatever he plans, you're certain that it's going to take more than your small group to defeat the creatures that you glimpsed behind that door.
Your faction standing with Cirtan, Bayle's Herald got better.
