This group task begins with Rodrick Cleanheart in the Cooling Chamber at location -170, -320, -25.

In order to request this task, you must have first completed Rodrick's two previous tasks.

You say, 'Hail, Rodrick Cleanheart'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'Brell's eyes must shine down on you from below his [heavy] brows, my friend. Your discovery of that [device] and removal of the threat to the [Coldain] has been of great service to Brell and all of us in the Underfoot. But even that appears to have opened the way for an even more deadly [threat].'

You say, 'Coldain?'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'I would have never thought that one of us could fall into the path of necromancy, but it seems one has. The one behind all of this is Tasnise Underbelly, as hard as that is to believe. Now I need you to find and destroy him. His foolishness has grown too dangerous and could result in the final breakdown of the Cooling Chambers. I need you to stop him. If you're [willing], let me know and I'll send you to the right place to begin.'

You have been assigned the task 'Tasnise Underbelly'.

Tasnise has been proven to be corrupted beyond redemption. He has embraced necromancy and has been using his power to disrupt the workings of the Cooling Chambers. Rodrick believes that his power must be vast. The number of undead in the area alone proves this. He has asked you to see if you can defeat Tasnise and end his evil.

Finding Tasnise might be difficult enough. If he knows that his veil of lies has been pierced, he may hide himself.

You say, 'We're willing'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'May Brell's beard be soft for you!'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Cooling Chamber. (an instanced version of the zone)



Defeat Tasnise Underbelly 0/1 (Cooling Chamber)

As you zone in, you'll see a rather annoyed Tasnise Underbelly shouting at his workers.

Tasnise Underbelly shouts 'You WILL do as I say.'

He is located just below the zone-in point and is aggro.

Tasnise Underbelly says 'Hah! Now you know why you can never hope to defeat me! My life can never be taken!'

Tasnise Underbelly says 'I have traded some fraction of my power to creatures that never die, and I have taken from them their unliving essence. You can never hope to defeat me!'

Tasnise Underbelly says 'I will take your lives as I have so many others. I shall drain what little power you have and add it to my own.'

At 70%, he will heal to full and translocate group to random locations (the zone-in or the undead tunnels):

Tasnise Underbelly says 'Enough of this foolishness. I haven't the time to kill you. After all, that's why I have mindless minions! Besides, I have a portal to build and a kingdom to usurp!'

This updates the step.



Find a way to defeat Tasnise! 0/1 (Cooling Chamber)

Task Window Says: It appears that hiding isn't something that Tasnise needs to do. His body recovers from serious wounds instantly! You must regroup and find a way to defeat his necromantic healing.

In the five deadends of the undead tunnels are five different named "Dark" mobs. Kill these and loot their gems.

Darkcloth Mummy is at the "Rags" location and drops Scuffed Dark Gem Fragment. It uses:

Dark Reasoning: Single Target, (-120)
1: Decrease Attack Speed by 40%
2: Decrease Movement by 60%
3: Increase corruption counter by 3

Deathcloth Spore: Single Target, Magic (-450)
1: Hitpoints unknown calc: 1999 range: 1000 -> 0
2: Increase Poison Counter by 8

Darklight Ghoul is at the "Tatters" location and drops Rough Dark Gem Fragment. It uses:

Dark Watchman: Single Target, Chromatic (-1000)
1: Summon Pets: CCHMissDarkWatchmenPet x 1 for 60 sec

Death's Light: Single Target, Magic (0)
1: Blindness (0)

Darksoul Ghost is at the "Bonechips" location and drops Frozen Dark Gem Fragment. It uses:

Dark Reasoning: Single Target, (-120)
1: Decrease Attack Speed by 40%
2: Decrease Movement by 60%
3: Increase corruption counter by 3

Deathshock: Single Target, Magic (0)
1: Decrease AC by 1500
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 1200 per tick

Darkbone Skeleton is at the "Shrieking Death" location and drops Smooth Dark Gem Fragment. It uses:

Boneshards: Directional 150', Chromatic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 20000

Dark Leeching: Lifetap 0', Magic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 16000

Dark Spectre is at the "Rampaging Ghoul" location and drops Jagged Dark Gem Fragment. It uses:

Dark Repulsion: Single Target, Magic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 14000
2: Unknown #380 (100/4/0)

Scything Slice: Single Target, Chromatic (-450)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 5000 per tick



The Dark Gem fragment is obviously magical. Discover its secret. 0/1 (Cooling Chamber)

Click any of the fragments and it will assemble into a Dark Gem of the Underbelly.



Destroy the Dark Gem after weakening Tasnise Underbelly 0/1 (Cooling Chamber)

Task Window Says: The gem cannot be broken while Tasnise's body is whole, but when he draws from the gem to heal himself, you may be able to destroy it.

Tasnise Underbelly has relocated to the undead area but does not aggro you. You can clear if necessary and pull him when ready.

He casts some or all of the following "Dark" spells (how many of these you see may depend on how long you take to kill him):

Dark Daze: Single Target, Magic (-500)
1: Stun (8.00 sec)

Dark Leeching: Lifetap 0', Magic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 16000

Dark Reasoning: Single Target, (-120)
1: Decrease Attack Speed by 40%
2: Decrease Movement by 60%
3: Increase corruption counter by 3

Dark Repulsion: Single Target, Magic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 14000
2: Knockback (4) and Toss Up (6)

Dark Watchman: Single Target, Chromatic (-1000)
1: Summon Pets: CCHMissDarkWatchmenPet x 1 for 60 sec

Click the Dark Gem any time between 70% and 60% of his health. He regenerates to full health and will now be killable.

Tasnise Underbelly shouts 'Fools! You may have returned to me my mortal weakness, but with that weakness also comes all of my power! You have returned to me that which I gave to my undead agents in exchange for their immortal life. With it I shall crush you! What matter that I will need to rebuild the gem. Time for that once you are all dead!'



Kill Tasnise now, while he is vulnerable 0/1 (Cooling Chamber)

NOTE: The task locks as soon as Tasnise dies.

Finish him off.



Speak with Rodrick 0/1 (Cooling Chamber)

You may or may not be able to do this with Rodrick in the instanced zone. If not, say "return" to exit, then hail Rodrick Cleanheart in the regular zone to complete the task.

Defeating Tasnise will help the workers in the Cooling Chambers very much. At least it will if the necromancer remains dead...

A frost-encrusted chest spawns with loot (1 item per task). Known drops:
Bleakburn Goo
Deathmaker's Bane
Echoing Shriek
Empowered Boneshards
Foehatchet
Owl's Wisdom

The usual 15 level spread limit between toons in your mission is not present on this underfoot mission. Seems only this one and Don't Fear the Destroyer are like this.

When you zone in, if you wait there, you will have your first run-in with Tasnise. No need to hunt him down.

Once he hits about 70% health, he despawns, and, at the same time, group members are zipped to random areas in the undead part of the zone (the tunnels).

The easiest (and longest but least likely to die) way of killing the five named mobs is to clear out the tunnel just prior to the dead end and then kill the named mob last. Yes, it takes longer, but if you try to run past and just kill the named, the ones from the tunnel tend to roam into the room and join the fight. Also, at least two of the named spawned pets to assist.

Once you have looted the five gem peices, clicking it causes it to combine into one gem.

Tasnise is on the edge of the lake. First round we tried pulling to a wall and killing, but roamers and adds (even after a bit of clearing beforehand) caused a wipe.

We had clicked the gem at about 65% health, so we were concerned that we would have to start over from scratch. No need, you can get rezzes and pick up right where you left off (hopefully without the deaths).

We ended up pulling to the island, with the raid mob. Raid mob stayed out of it, and Tasnise went down pretty quick with no adds to assist. He can also spawn a pet.

All in all, it was a good little quest. We were just stupid about where to pull him the first time.

As of today, Tasnise casts Dark Leeching, Dark Repulsion, and Dark Watchman. Didn't last long enough to see what else he might come up with. This was after killing the five undead.

I did this tonight with 3 toons, plus 3 t5 cleric mercs. toons were war, dru, enc, all 85.

For tasnise:

I pulled him to the big island in the lake, if you itu to island; then no need to clear any of the undead there.

once you click gem, when he is between 60 and 70 health, he cheals to 100%. You can evac, med up buff up, and run back down to him. We wiped to him and then had to run back down and reengage.

There is a big raid mob on the big island in the lake, he doesnt aggro at all.

"At 70%, Tasnise heals to full. At this point, click the Dark Gem."

That line I misinterpreted.

From 70% downto 60% you may click the gem. This will make Tanise to heal back up to full and the gem will disappear.

Don't wait until he heals back by himself arriving at 60% otherwhise you are back to start.
Tasnise re-pop

Today, when he repopped in undead area, he aggro'ed as soon as we got near. we did NOT have time to clear around him as stated above.

If you are going to /taskadd someone to this mission, be sure you do so before Tasnise Underbelly dies. As soon as he died, I got a message saying the task was locked and no other players could be added to the task. I just did the task last night and am going to do it again now for the ones I needed to /taskadd last night. Good luck.

At 70%, Tasnise heals to full. At this point, click the Dark Gem.

You have to click the completed gem to "weaken" him BEFORE he heals, not after. Click the gem before or around 70% before he heals himself.

Couple things wrong with this write up.

Easiest way to do this is clear the roamers in the tunnel. Have puller tag named. I used a HA ranger. Once complete then pull Tanise to tunnel Northwest end.

If you wipe on final stage he will med back to 100% then you can just go again but just for the last 100%

When you have completed the task the hailing is Rodrick within the task not the regular zone.
