|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group task begins with Adeenas in the Fungal Forest. She is a telmira located at -905, -850, 95 (southeastern area of the zone). Keep a lookout while speaking with her as KOS mobs wander the area.
In order to request this task, you must have completed Adeenas's three prior tasks:
Fate of the Telmira
Gathering of Essentials
Salvation of Spores
You say, 'Hail, Adeenas'
Adeenas says 'Hello! I am Adeenas of the telmira. I see you must be lost. Perhaps you should get your bearings here before you further travel the Fungal Forest. Like most of the Underfoot, this place is dangerous to outsiders. This is more true if you venture further to the east, or if you choose to trifle with the sporali or cliknar. Perhaps you came by to [chat] with me instead?'
You say, 'Let's have a chat'
Adeenas says 'I love talking to new people! I get so lonely these days, since the sporali became violent and the cliknar invaded the forest. The other telmira have scattered to the winds, it seems, and I don't know what to do next. No matter. I have you to talk to now. You can remain here and talk with me [forever], yes?'
You say, 'Forever?'
Adeenas says 'Yes! You can remain here forever--if you'll let me transform you into a telmira like me with my special spell, of course; and whatever fate comes to the telmira, you will share. Does that sound [fun]? We can fly to the tops of mushrooms, skim the gullies of rivers, sing songs honoring the life of the forest, and eat fruit beneath the weeping spore caps.'
You say, 'No fun at all...'
Adeenas says 'You mortals are all the same. What sounds like fun to a telmira only seems to scare you to death, yet you all seem to embrace the most terrifying and random type of existence. Well, you don't know what you're missing, that's all I can say! Since you're going to stick with your mortal experience of death and danger, how about helping me with a [favor]? Or did you already do that for me? If so, perhaps it's time to do something about [Rakkirin].'
You say, 'Time to do something about that Rakkirin'
Adeenas says 'Rakkirin Shrivstem has become wicked. Like all of us telmira, he is especially blessed of Brell Serilis and knows better than to be going around inflicting violence and terror on the other creatures of the forest! Shameful, if you ask me. What's worse, he is growing an army of super-sporali that is supposed to help him do something terrible. You know, it would be a grand adventure to [intervene] in his evil plan, wouldn't it?'
You have been assigned the task 'The Fungal Bloom'.
To zone in:
You say, 'Let's intervene'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Fungal Forest - The Fungal Bloom.
The Telmira sages and Gigyn have gathered together to help put a stop to Rakkirin Shrivstem's plan to grow a new army of Bloatspore warriors to serve him. You must help them with this task. As you arrive in Shrivstem Glade, you will need to speak with your new allies and make sure they are ready for battle.
Adeenas and five other NPCs are found at the zone-in. The first five steps are to hail them.
Find out if Autoros is ready for combat 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
You say, 'Hail, Sage Autoros'
Sage Autoros says 'I am looking forward to showing you how well we fight, mortal.'
Confirm with Eulyris that he is ready for battle 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
You say, 'Hail, Sage Eulyris'
Sage Eulyris says 'I am relishing the chance to set the sporali back on the path of Brell by force. The time for waiting on Rakkirin of the Shrivstems to come to his senses naturally has ended!'
Talk with Vaelani, and see if he is ready to fight 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
You say, 'Hail, Sage Vaelani'
Sage Vaelani says 'I am ready! Let us fight for what is right, and restore the natural order of Brell Serilis.'
See that Knave Toltan knows what he is supposed to do when the fighting starts 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
You say, 'Hail, Knave Toltan'
Knave Toltan says 'I am ready for what must happen next. Sad that Rakkirin cannot hear any but the voice of his own darkened conscience. Many will die.'
Have a word with Knave Garusk before the battle begins 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
You say, 'Hail, Knave Garusk'
Knave Garusk says 'I will say the Words of Brell until Adeenas gives the word. In the Words of Brell I find solace and peace. May Brell's words return to this forest soon.'
Inform Adeenas that the battle against the blooming Shrivstem army may now begin 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
When you hail Adeenas, the battle begins. The five NPCs charge the sporali down below and the task locks. Helping them is not necessary (although there is an achievement for keeping them all alive). If you leave them unaided, they'll all die a quick death. From there, you can pull kill targets like normal.
You say, 'Hail, Adeenas'
Adeenas says 'Very good, very very good! Now we must bring down that big brute before we can do anything else! I'll stay up here and watch if you don't mind. I'm not that good at fighting like my friends are. But I'll be cheering you on as all of you face the perilous bloom of Shrivstems! Oh yes, I almost forgot, if you find The Gorgax's summoning whistle that brings Sigorus the Veilcaster out of the Shrivstems' Veil, that will be very helpful. If we slay Sigorus, the Shrivstems will not be able to keep the magical energy flowing to their Veil, and we will be able to defeat all of them.'
Knave Garusk swings its massive fists and attacks.
Knave Toltan swings its massive fists and attacks.
Sage Vaelani says 'Feel the fires of Lord Brell's forge!'
Sage Eulyris says 'Feel the fires of Lord Brell's forge!'
Sage Autoros says 'Feel the fires of Lord Brell's forge!'
Your task 'The Fungal Bloom' has been updated.
All five charge down the hill towards the sporali.
Destroy some Shrivstem lysospores 0/12 (Fungal Forest)
Destroy some Shrivstem blightspores 0/6 (Fungal Forest)
Destroy some Shrivstem mossbacks 0/4 (Fungal Forest)
Collect The Gorgax' summoning whistle. Adeenas can use this to summon the Shrivstem veilcaster 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
The Gorgax is on par with the other sporali in terms of difficulty, but has a lot more hitpoints.
Give The Gorgax' summoning whistle to Adeenas 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
Note: A named will spawn immediately upon completing this turn-in.
Adeenas says 'Yes! That's the whistle. Let me study it and see how it works. I will be the one to blow the whistle, so I must make sure to blow it the right way the first time, or else the wrong sporali might come out of the Veil. Tell me when you're ready for me to use the whistle, like, when you're all done fighting the Shrivstems who are outside the Veil.'
Adeenas says 'Here goes! Cover your ears, there might be a piercing tone, or you might not hear anything at all. This should magically summon Sigorus the Veilcaster from inside the bubble. You'll be able to slay him, and then the Veil should weaken to the point to allow you inside.'
Sigorus the Veilcaster says 'The spirit of the spore will take you down.'
Kill Sigorous the Veilcaster 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
Sigorus the Veilcaster has been slain by _____!
Sigorus the Veilcaster's corpse falls, its spores trying one last time to heal it.
You're not done yet. Another batch of sporali appears in the area.
Destroy some bloatspore sprouts. Depriving Rakkirin of these sprouts will be half the battle 0/10 (Fungal Forest)
Destroy some Shrivstem cataspores 0/5 (Fungal Forest)
Destroy some Shrivstem fungrolurks 0/5 (Fungal Forest)
Destroy some Shrivstem glowspores 0/5 (Fungal Forest)
Destroy some Shrivstem shadespores 0/5 (Fungal Forest)
These will respawn as you fill your kill quota. Once you collect all 30 kills, complete these last two steps:
Take Rakkirin Shrivstem's surrender 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
You say, 'Hail, Rakkirin Shrivstem'
Rakkirin Shrivstem says 'You have ruined my plan to gather an army as I have been commanded. I expect punishment from him now. Brell Serilis has forsaken us, left us without hope. The Temple of Self gave us hope. You took that hope away. Now all of the Underfoot plunges into chaos and fear. What have you done? What can I do now, but surrender?'
Bring the news of the victory to Adeenas 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
You say, 'Hail, Adeenas'
Adeenas says 'Rakkirin has surrendered? Hooray! Well, he didn't need to be so despondent about it. We just want him to live by Brell's rule, as he is supposed to, and not attack, imprison and slay the rest of us just because he thinks he should. Well, you're a hero now, so I guess this means you'll help destroy this Church of Self? We should probably go in a minute, the Shrivstems will need some time to put their camp back in order.'
See what reward you have been offered 0/1 (Fungal Forest)
Opening the fungus-encrusted chest completes the task.
You have destroyed the nascent army of Shrivstem sporalis, and prevented Rakkirin's plans from being carried out. This may not stop the problem, but at least there will no longer be an army of giant Sporali warriors.

Bow of the Weeping Willow
