This group task begins with Yemall the Arcane in the City of Dranik. It is available at indifferent faction with Dragorn Forces.

You say, 'Hail, Yemall the Arcane'

Yemall the Arcane says 'Greetings, _____. I am Yemall, chief researcher for the city of Dranik. I apologize for the informality, but you realize that we are in [desperate times].'

You say, 'What makes these desperate times?'

Yemall the Arcane says 'The armies of Discord have entered our final stronghold, and their strikes become more and more deadly by the day. We're trying to learn as much as we can about our foes, but there are [difficulties].'

You say, 'There are always difficulties.'

Yemall the Arcane says 'As we study our assailants, it has become obvious that their nature changes the longer they are here in Kuua. To ascertain their core weaknesses we must be able to study them soon after they [arrive] here.'

You say, 'Where do they arrive?'

Yemall the Arcane says 'There is a great portal to Discord in the fields of Dranik, through which the Discordant army summons their reinforcements. Alas, we have not been able to push our forces to that point in some time, and so my supply of [subjects] is dwindling. We could use your help if you are [willing] to offer it.'

You say, 'I'm willing'

Yemall the Arcane says 'Excellent. You and your companions should each take one of these [items] and then proceed to the [portal].'

You have been assigned the task 'Studying the Portal'.

Yemall the Arcane needs a constant supply of subdued invaders to study, but they can not have been on Kuua for very long. Find the portal where they are entering the world and subdue them there.

You say, 'What items?'

Yemall the Arcane says 'Once you have weakened your foe, three of you will need to quickly subdue them with its enchantment. If you are not fast enough, they will break free, so work with haste. If you happen to lose yours, I can [provide] more.'

You say, 'Provide more...'

Yemall the Arcane says 'Here is another item with fresh enchantments. Use it well!'

The item received is called "Epositrig". At least three people in your group should get one. Each item has 20 charges of "Thaumaterianize".



Explore the portal area 0/1 (The Precipice of War)

This task step updates as you get close to the round building you see to your right after you zone (Loc: -1075, 850, 280).

You've found the portal! Try to subdue examples of each type of invader. Defend yourself from the ambushers and return to Yemall!

NOTE: Don't set up camp right at the zone-in, as later in the task, KOS mobs will spawn there.

Capture Ukuns for study 0/2 (The Precipice of War)

Capture Ikaav for study 0/2 (The Precipice of War)

Capture Nocs for study 0/2 (The Precipice of War)

Capture Pyrilen for study 0/1 (The Precipice of War)

Capture Gelidran for study 0/1 (The Precipice of War)

To "capture" these mobs, beat them down to below 30% health at which point three people must click the "Epositrig" effect. You have to do all three clicks within about 10 seconds.

These clicks will occasionally fail:

a noc flashblade shakes off the effects of the strange spells.

...In which case just kill the mob and move on to the next.

Destroy your attackers 0/4 (The Precipice of War)

Upon the last update, four "ambusher" mobs spawn near the zone-in (they are NOT auto-aggro and do not see invisibility). Kill them, then hail Yemall for completion.

Report your success to Yemall 0/1 (City of Dranik)

Yemall thanks you for providing more subjects to study. Perhaps one will show an exploitable weakness.
Your faction standing with Dragorn Forces got better.
Your faction standing with Discordant Army got worse.
Your faction standing with Herald Argoth got better.


Rewards:

Other possible loot from named (should she spawn):

I was able to use sneak at apprehensive faction and get this mission. My other toons, all apprehensive, were able to get the clicky by just saying "provide" to the NPC even though their faction was not high enough.
Attackers

The attackers at the end spawn right in front of the gate and are static. They do not see invisibility, snarable, and are rootable. They are easily split up with a puller. Task adds can be done at the end.

Indifferent faction alone isn't enough to get the quest. Nor is amiable faction.

There's some other prerequisite that's not listed on any sites as yet.
More required...

I was having the same problem... until I realized Yemall the Arcane in City of Dranik, not Noble Yemall the Arcane in Old Bloodfields that gives this quest.

As also stated by Jemuril in post Beguiler Chandra named Ikaav and random spawn within instance drops one of the following:
Varuun's Battlehardened Targe
Targe of Kuua
Dire Gounus Egg
Gounus Egg

Her ph is an Ikaav Despirer took between 7 and 10 tries of setting task, waiting 15 mins for spawn and dropping before getting her up... She's located in the small temple to the west of the central portal area. She's in the room single with 2 roaming mobs outside and is possible to single pull if timed properly.

She is level 86 / 87, is not snareable, hits for as high as 7k on a 4700ac tank... also cast an AE knockback and rampages. Nothing in this instance sees invis.

As for the task in general, it can be received with indiff faction from Yemell the Arcane, 3 group member will need to talk to him in order to get 3 devices to capture the required mobs which have approximatly a 20sec recast timer however there is roughly a 10sec window in which all 3 members have to cast to capture the mobs. DO NOT set up camp at zone in, upon completion of your final mob capture 4 attacker will spawn at zone in. They do not see invis and will not agro as mentioned above. They are snarable and can be split. Kill all 4 and report back to Yemall for task reward.

He will only give 1 item to the person asking for quest. So you have to have 2 other chars at him and say provide to get the clicky to capture the mobs.
