This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Daleynn Spiritshadow (click for map image) in the Dark Reign camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum Level 59
- Minimum "amiable" faction with Dark Reign

Hail her to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'The Creator'.

We have word of a creator of statues within the isles of Thundercrest. We're not yet sure who is commissioning these creatures for the dragon who resides there, but we do know that not all are functioning as they should be.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

Whoever requests the task receives a "Lens of Truth".

Touch the portal to the Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).

Investigate the Garden of Yar`Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Destroy the defunct sentries you've uncovered 0/3 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Your first clue is that the defunct statues may yet be waiting in the Garden of Yar`Lir. Seek them out and destroy them.

One character must venture into the inner room to complete the "investigate" stage. You must destroy three of "a defunct sentry" found in the inner room. These are very trivial kills. Once they're dead, you feel some shaking and see:

Something has come alive in a nearby room! Be warned!

You must find the source of this disturbance and defeat it before it can roam free! 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: The rumbling you just felt must have been a sentry that is fully automated! Judging by the magnitude of the power, it must be nearby. Search for this beast and destroy it before it has a chance to destroy you!

Upon destroying the defunct sentries in the inner room, a "Furious Sentry" in one of the rooms at the "top" of the building. Clear the adds and kill it to proceed. The mob hits for a max ~1,100 and has ~45,000 hitpoints.

Recover the energy crystal from the defeated sentry 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Time is short but you must take the energy crystal that has been left behind. Its use is unclear just yet, but the pulsating emissions that you can sense draws you ever closer to it.

Loot an Energy Crystal from the Furious Sentry.

Identify the crystal to uncover its hidden secrets 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Now that you have the crystal in your grasp, you must identify the crystal to uncover its hidden heritage. Such information may give you a better understanding as to who, or what, is creating these statues.

Head east from the zone-in point (away from the main building and toward the opposite set of gates). Whoever has the "Energy Crystal" should stand at the set of double doors here. Then, whoever has the "Lens of Truth" should right-click it on that player. Alternatively, if you have a pure caster, they can cast the spell "Identify" on the player (no other form of Identify works - not the General AA, not a bard's - only a pure caster).

The Lends of Truth disappears when you click it, so make sure you're at the right location (where the double doors meet).

Upon clicking, you see:

The crystal glows brilliantly filling the room with an eerie light. A scream of rage can be heard in the distance and moments later a voice echoes across the island, 'Foolish adventurers, you will all meet death for destroying my sentries!'

"Creator Kro`Val" (doesn't see invisibility) spawns at the double doors while four sentries (see invis) spawn in the area just west of these.

Kill the creator of the statues 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: The crystal's deeply ensconced knowledge has shown you that there is one creator of the statues. This being is a direct underling to the great dragon of these isles, Yar`Lir. You must find this creator and slay him before he can bring to life any of his latest creations!

Creator Kro`val is a fairly straightforward fight. It hits for a max ~1,300; has ~55,000 hitpoints; is stunnable and mezzable; appears to be pure melee; and flees at low health. Upon its death, the task completes:

In an amazing turn of events, you were able to destroy the creator before he could release several more of his dire minions upon you. His death will deal a tremendous blow to the operations of the dragon Yar`Lir, and perhaps cripple any attempt she was to have of driving you and your fellow adventurers out of her realm. Well done!

Up to 41 Ebon Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
