This shared task (1-6 players) begins with Deagus the Fungrotect in the Fungal Forest. He is located at about 1305, 655, 255 (north-central area). Watch out for roaming KOS mobs while speaking with him.

In order to request this task, you must have completed "Fate of the Telmira", "Gathering of Essentials", and "Seeds For the Waterstalkers".

You say, 'Hail, Deagus the Fungrotect'

Deagus the Fungrotect says 'Hello! Perhaps you can help me. The entire blasted forest has gone [mad]!'

You say, 'Mad?'

Deagus the Fungrotect says 'Cliknar are invading thinking they own the place, and the [Shrivstem] sporali are on the warpath. The emissaries of the Faith of Self came and influenced them to conquer the Fungal Forest. It's bad enough that I have to deal with these blasted rhino [beetles] keeping me up at night.'

You say, 'What about these Shrivstem?'

Deagus the Fungrotect says 'In sporali culture, the Shrivstems were the most beloved of Brell. Now they have descended into darkness, killing and hunting the other creatures of the Forest, performing strange rituals, and staining their own reputation. The Faith of Self influenced them with some sort of false belief that their wants are greater than the needs of the community; now they are up to no good. Their leader, Rakkirin, seems to have gone insane. He has taken Vaelani hostage, using a magic bottle to reduce her to a stored glowing essence. We must guarantee her [safety].'

You say, 'How do we guarantee safety?'

Deagus the Fungrotect says 'You must go and talk with Rakkirin, negotiate, and find out what it is that he will want in exchange for freeing Vaelani. Will you [do] this?'

You say, 'I will do this'

Without pre-requisites:

Deagus the Fungrotect says 'There are a lot of complicated issues to deal with these days. I don't fully understand what's happening, and I don't think you do either. So perhaps you can help clear things up. Speak with Orgus Shrivstem, Adeenas and Excrug Shrivstem, if you haven't already. They can use your help, and what we learn from them could make sense of things. If you can do that, then I might have a task for you.'

With pre-requsites:

Deagus the Fungrotect says 'Excellent. My job just got a lot easier. With your help, we can put this place back together. Speak with Rakkirin, find out what he wants, then high-tail it back here and we'll put our heads together to see if there's a way we can deceive him and get Vaelani back at the same time.'

You have been assigned the task 'Salvation of Spores'



Negotiate with Rakkirin for the release of Vaelani 0/1 (Fungal Forest)

Rakkirin Shrivstem is found in the southeastern-most part of the zone surrounded by KOS sporali mobs.

Speak with Deagus the Fungrotect before helping Rakkirin (Fungal Forest)

Collect some Xanthiune Spores from motile and vigorous earths 0/4 (Fungal Forest)

Collect some Primnitane Spores from motile and vigorous mosses 0/3 (Fungal Forest)

Collect some Potent Vitamolid Spores from motile and vigorous spore slimes 0/2 (Fungal Forest)

Xanthiune Spores drop from "vigorous earth" and "motile earth" oozes. Primnitane Spores drop from "a motile moss" and "a vigorous moss". Potent Vitamolid Spores drop from "vigorous spore slime" and "motile spore slime".

Bring the vitamolid spores to Deagus the Fungrotect 0/2 (Fungal Forest)

Speak with Deagus the Fungrotect 0/1 (Fungal Forest)

Deliver the Xanthiune Spores to Rakkirin Shrivstem 0/4 (Fungal Forest)

Deliver the Primnitane Spores to Rakkirin Shrivstem 0/3 (Fungal Forest)

Deliver the Treated Potent Vitamolid Spores to Rakkirin Shrivstem 0/2 (Fungal Forest)

Speak with Rakkirin Shrivstem 0/1 (Fungal Forest)

Return the bottle with Vaelani's essence to Deagus the Fungrotect 0/1 (Fungal Forest)

Deagus the Fungrotect says 'Let's see, a typical magic bottle, and I must release the telmira trapped inside with some Dwarven panache! Stand back as I open it. Ah, Vaelani is free now! It might take a while for his essence to coalesce and become physical, but at least it now has a chance, free from Rakkirin's control.'

You have successfully tricked Rakkirin Shrivstem into releasing Vaelani, while preventing him from acquiring the spores he needed to create mutated sporali.

When we finished this quest this evening we received as a reward:
Experience
105p, 0g, 0s, 0c
20 Brellium Tokens.

In my excitement to be done with this quest... I forgot to take a screenie of the reward box, OOPS!
When we got to the hand-in parts with Rakkirin Shrivstem, we set up outside his little dome directly infront of where his mushroom throne is and just pulled all of the sporali that were around. It was about 10 mobs in all. Then I cast lev on myself and walked right into the front part of his throne and it got me high enough off the ground that I could hand the items to him.

They're the big blob looking things near the quest sporali.

With the advent of a limited hail range, this task becomes somewhat to significantly more annoying.

You pretty much have to be in his LAP on his throne looking him in his FACE to get the hails to register. Yay soe!

Not.

TTFN,

Me

The entire task is pretty strait forward until you get up to the point where you have to turn in your items to Rakkirin Shrivstem.

Rakkirin Shrivstem is on top of his throne which doesn't seem to have a readily available way for anyone to get close to him. He is also surrounded by a crap load of KOS fungi.

I had use a high speed mount to float down from a high point on the northern entrance area down to his throne then have a ranger in my group with instant invis stand under him to invis me once I opened trade window and my invis dropped. I missed one invis and got myself and the ranger killed... nice way to end the task. Whoever thought out this task didn't think about how to turn in said items without death very well!

Good luck!
