- Minimum "indifferent" faction with Dark Reign
Hail him to get a quest window pop-up.
You have been assigned the task 'The Drake Menace'.
The drakes of Lavaspinner's Lair have become bold as of late. Go into their lair and prove to them that we are not to be messed with.
Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.
Touch the cave entrance to Lavaspinner's Lair 0/1 (The Broodlands)
This will be marked on your compass (far southern instance entrance).
NOTE: There is a drake roamer that can path right up to the instanced entrance.
Destroy the eggs before they are able to raise an army of drakes 0/15 (Lavaspinner's Lair)
To destroy "a drake egg", target it and type /open. Most of the time, a drake spawns upon destroying an egg (standard zone mob). Also, the eggs occasionally hit (bump) for about 450 points. As you open them, you'll see emotes forewarning a final encounter:
The ground shakes slightly, and a loud crack and thud can be heard echoing through the tunnels.
As you destroy the egg, you can hear screeches behind you with the flapping of wings nearby.
Defeat the Drake Matriarch before she can produce more drakes 0/1 (Lavaspinner's Lair)
After opening the last egg, the Drake Matriarch spawns:
As the final egg shatters you can feel a gust of wind hit you as the Drake Matriarch assaults you.
It hits for a max ~1,300; has ~85,000 hitpoints; casts wizard spells; and can summon a weak pet. Upon its death, the task completes.
Up to 25 Ebon Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Dark Reign Token" (faction turn-in item)
