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 "apprehensive" faction with Dark Reign

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

You have been assigned the task 'Throes of Contagion'.

We've long thought the best way to rid the lands of dragon kind is to do it from the air. Now is our chance. The majority of the minions of these isles are at rest on what they like to call Storm's Respite. If you are successful, this day of rest will be their last. To accomplish this feat, you are going to need to make three unique poisons and place them strategically throughout the Thundercrest Isles. Be careful though, because once you've entered the last area, you'll only have 20 minutes to complete your mission and leave the area or else you will be caught in the poison's areas of effect and possibly die as well. So you don't arouse any suspicion, you're going to need to clear out some of the Isle denizens.

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

Mobs in this zone respawn. This is important to note as you'll be on a timer to reach the entrance once you've completed all but the last step.







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

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



Eliminate the guards from the isles while you are placing the toxin 0/12 (Thundercrest Isles)

This step will get updated as you progress through the task. The guards are called "an enraged puma". These hit for a max ~850 and have ~60,000 hitpoints. They are immune to lulls, mez, snare, and root. They see invisibility and summon. They come in pairs. There are more than 12 in the zone.

Four of them are found on the zone-in bridge. Another four are located on the southeast bridge that leads out of the center temple into the maze area in the southeastern corner of the zone. Another four are located on the west/southwestern bridge that leads to the Garden of Yar`Lir.



Look for the components to make a chromotoxin 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must make a poison called Chromotoxin. Another force lost their lives just before you arrived, so there may be something left over from their attempt.

The components are found on the corpses of the previous force (3x "a corpse"). Find them, target them, and /open to loot the components for the potions.

The first corpse is located just inside the zone-in doors. It drops:

1x Custom Mortar and Pestle (container)
1x Chromatic Dye
1x Explosive Resin
1x Lined Poison Vial
1x Constrict Suspension

Combine the four items in the container to produce 1x "Chromatoxin".



Place the Chromotoxin at the end of the bridge to the center dojo 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Now that the Chromotoxin has been created, you must make your way to the end of the bridge that is connected to the main isle. The toxins will spread throughout the dojo killing all that inhabit the area.

This step automatically updates at the end of the zone-in bridge.



Look for the components to make a Chlorotoxin 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must make a poison called Chlorotoxin. Another force was here just before you were, but were defeated. There may be remnants of the components for this poison nearby.

Head towards the garden temple in the southwestern/western part of the zone. On the bridge will be a second "a corpse". It drops:

1x Custom Mortar and Pestle (container)
1x Chloroform
1x Explosive Resin
1x Lined Poison Vial
1x Constrict Suspension

Combine the four items in the container to produce 1x "Chlorotoxin".



Place the Chlorotoxin at the entrance to the Garden of Yar'Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Now that the Chlorotoxin has been created, you must make your way to the entrance to the Garden of Yar`Lir and place the toxin. The rays of the sun will ignite the toxin and cause it to explode and spread over a great many areas within the isles and the dragonlife below.

This is a location update. Head across the bridge from where the corpse was and to the building entrance (where you'll also find two more enraged pumas).



Look for the components to make a Precipitoxin 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must make a poison called Precipitoxin. Another party was here, but was brutally slain before they were able to complete their mission. Perhaps you can find the components for that toxin nearby.

Head towards the maze area in the southeastern corner of the zone. The third "a corpse" is found on the bridge leading out of the dojo (center temple) to the maze area. It drops:

1x Custom Mortar and Pestle (container)
1x Essence of Precipitation
1x Explosive Resin
1x Lined Poison Vial
1x Constrict Suspension

Combine the four items in the container to produce 1x "Precipitoxin".



Place the Precipitoxin at the entrance to the maze 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Finally, the Precipitoxin is ready. You will need to place it in just the right spot. There is a spot on the bridge between the dojo and the maze where it will spread evenly and quickly. Place it there and do it before you are discovered.

This is a location update across the bridge. Just keep moving towards the maze until you see:

The three toxins have been set. You have 20 minutes to get out of Thundercrest before the deadly toxins fill the air.



You have 20 minutes to get your party back to the entrance isle and exit Thundercrest before the toxins are released 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must return to the entrance and exit Thundercrest before the 20 minutes are up. Hurry now with your entire party, there is not much time!

This is a location update at the entrance doors at the zone-in. Everyone in the zone must be present before it will update. Any players in the task who ae outside the zone won't count towards this requirement. Do this within 20 minutes to complete the task. Fail to do so, and you'll be repeating it.

You've struck a great blow against the dragons. The combined power of the poisons has been a severe detriment to their kind and will allow you and your forces to quickly overtake them and the mighty storm dragon, Yar`Lir. Well done!

Quest description:

So you don't arouse any suspicion, you're going to need to clear out some of the Isle denizens.

Look for the components to make a Chromotoxin - Thundercrest Isles
Just inside the first doorway, there is a half elf corpse guarded by two "an enraged puma". They are immune to lull and mez, summon, and enrage at low health. Kill them, /open the corpse as if it were a chest, and loot Chromatic Dye, Explosive Resin, Lined Poison Vial, Constrict Suspension, and Custom Mortar and Pestle. Put all the components into the Custom Mortar and Pestle and click combine to create Chromotoxin.

Once inside, take the right path and wind your way up to the top. On the bridge on the east side, you'll encounter another corpse and another pair of pumas. Kill the pumas, but do not loot the corpse. Continue further up the bridge and locate the last pair of pumas. Kill them and return to the corpse, loot it, and make the poison.

Note: these steps must be done in order, as each corpse only spawns when the toxin from the previous one is placed.
