    This task begins with Trakanon in the Field of Scale at around -600, 1500 (central part of the field).

    You say, 'Hail, Trakanon'

    Trakanon says 'Be gone. Go talk to a tree if you have a need to hear your own voice. I have [Iksar] to deal with. Them and that coward [Kurn].'

    You say, 'Iksar?'

    Trakanon says 'If you must know, they call themselves Greentails and they've made themselves into my personal headache. I don't suppose you're [interested] in getting some blood on your hands?'

    You say, 'I am interested.'

    Trakanon says 'So be it. These pests have been training just to kill my servants. You go deal with them.'

    You have been assigned the task 'The Grudge'.



    Kill 10 greentail 0/10 (Kurn's Tower)

    Deliver the heads of Trakanon's lost servants 0/4 (Field of Scale)

    In summary, you'll need to deliver a number of Racnar Heads and/or Green Drake Heads (dropped in Kurn's Stronghold) to Trakanon.

    Just spent several hours clearing out floors 3-7, got 5 drops total. Guessing <5% drop rate with max of 8 greentails spawning each cycle, usually get 4 or 5.

    I soloed this as an 86/1350 Wizard with a J5 tank merc. Wasn't easy, but I was determined. FWIW, I do have the Iksar illusion, so I was non-KOS to the entire zone.

    The greentails and tower guards appear to be on the same spawn table so depending on where you choose to fight you may need to clear some guards. Obviously with neither crowd control or a healer, I needed singles. I found that most staircases have a single mob that roams from top to bottom; if you engage this mob halfway up the staircase, it will not aggro the mobs at the top or bottom.

    The easier spot though is the west side of I think the 5th floor. It's the green level if you have the mapfiend maps. There is a room with two spawns, and a room behind it with one spawn. If you want the easiest but slow way, you can just kill that single spawn point. The zone seems to have roughly a 20 minute respawn though, so you'd be there for some time. I was able to handle the two spawns in the outer room by rooting the further one and burning the closer one that the merc was tanking. Then while waiting on respawn I would check the various staircases.

    The same area with the single spawn has enough room that if you were REALLY determined to kite this, you might be able to. There are two roamers in the hallway, with an empty room to the North. If you can root one roamer out of your way, the other should be kitable, then you can go back for the first one. It's much easier to use the merc though, as they can tank one mob without a healer without too much trouble. The mobs are stunnable as well, so that can help.

    Hope this helps...

    It seems the drop rate of the needed heads was upped. Today I got 7 heads of the 10 greentail mobs I had to kill.

    Kill any mob with greentail in the name, they only spawn a couple floors up and higher. Seem to be able to spawn in any of the guards spots, as well as a few of the rooms. In order to get 4 heads you may well have to kill a few extra as drops seemed streaky. Did get a 2/4 droprate from the greentail commanders.
    Killing in Kurn's tower (as well as the library or hatchery) is MUCH easier if you do the quests to get the ancient iksar illusion clicky.
