    This is a non-progression group task that begins with Rupkerr (click for map image) is found in the safe area in the north-central part of Feerrott, the Dream at approximate location 1175, 1340.

    There are no pre-requisites (other than level) for requesting this task.

    You say, 'Hail, Rupkerr'

    Rupkerr says 'It's such a relief to come across a friendly traveler. I was sent here to determine the whereabouts of a missing [expedition crew], and found myself quite lost in this jungle, exposed to all its dangers. My own search has been halted, due to [rumors] of wandering undead.'

    You say, 'What rumors?'

    Rupkerr says 'Oh, the rumors have been coming in from all over, as far north as the waterfall, to the southern border of Innothule Swamp. The Feerrott has its fair share of undead, but these recent [sightings] have been far more fearful.'

    You say, 'Sightings?'

    Rupkerr says 'Normally the undead tend to linger not far from the portal to the Plane of Fear, leaving the rest of the jungle relatively free of skeletons and specters. The recent reports I've heard detail a myriad of fearful [creatures], unlike anything that's ever been seen before in the Feerrott.'

    You say, 'What creatures?'

    Rupkerr says 'Indescribable creatures, looking as if they crawled straight through the Fear portal itself! Of course, there simply cannot be any truth to these rumors, as it is common knowledge the portal to Fear is a one-way trip. Nonetheless, someone should [investigate] these sightings.'

    You say, 'I'll investigate for you'

    Rupkerr says 'Very well, _____. You're far braver than the adventures that passed this way before you. I'll take extra care to scribe the sighting locations in your journal exactly as they were reported to me. Let me know when you are ready to [begin] your investigation.'

    You have been assigned the task 'A Tearable Fear'.

    You say, 'I am ready to begin.'

    You are teleported into an instanced version of Feerrott, the Dream.

    It's missing from the quest info above, but someone does say it further down the chain. This is in an instanced zone version and you have to say "begin" to Rupkerr to zone in.

    Credit to Lovemy Solder but thought I would at least get it closer to the top of the post.

    Had an issue just now where I couldn't finish this due to task not wanting to update. Killed all the portal guardians, but the portal west of the waterfall remained up/active and wouldn't update task objective 'Destroy the portal'.

    Soloed today as a 90 SK, plus Journeyman T5 cleric merc. Wasn't too tough, but did take me just over 2 hours.

    Portal guardians have about 500K hps
    Each mini named has about 650K hps
    Cyndreela has about 870K hps

    Hardest one was Blackbones because of the insane knockback he has, rest were straight up tank and spank.

    Essences of fear dropped of gorrillas, spiders and lizardmen. drop rate was about 4 in 5, so pretty common overall.

    Quest Observations
    # Feb 08 2011 at 12:50 PM Rating: Decent
    Several observations having recently completed this quest:

    - For the first steps of vanquishing the undead from the three areas, there are 6-7 update mobs clustered near each portal. You need to kill 4 to update the task, but clear all the mobs. If you leave a couple they may add when you come back to kill the Portal Guardians.

    - Fear Essences drop randomly from any mob in the zone, and they are a common drop. I got all mine from gorillas in the NW area.

    - The next step involves killing Portal Guardians. Three spawn, one after the next. Subsequent Guardians DO NOT spawn when the previous one hits 60%. They are on timers. My group killed Guardians before the next one spawned. In one case we picked up a couple adds (see point above) which slowed us down on the first Guardian, so the second spawned at around 40%. In any event, they are mezzable.

    - The named "Portal" spawns and rushes you when the third Guardian is killed. The worst among them is Blackbones, the skeleton near Innohule zone. He doesn't hit hard but throws everyone in the group a long distance away in different directions (sucks if boxing) but follows the MT. He does this a few times during the fight, so burn him FAST. He ended up throwing a couple group members into nearby lizard camps and aggroing that whole nest.

    - Cyndreela does not see invis and won't aggro until you pull her. She does cast a PBAE as described earlier, but it is gimp. The best strategy is to overwhelm her with DPS. That will render her PBAE useless. We had the casters parked a bit away (near the tree by the entrance) while 3 melee engaged. She is a much easier fight than the three Portals.

    Good luck!
    Info on Cyndreela

    Not much info on Cyndreela here but here is what i found out.

    She casts a PBAE spell called Soul Devour, which is an AE lifetap. So she hurts everyone within the range for around 5k and heals herself for that much and it's a proc so she can recover 20k hitpoints just as fast as you can take her hitpoints down. Had problems initially since i was pulling her into my group. as soon as we figured out it was an PBAE, just had one single melee tank her down and all the casters just sit in the back and either nuke or heal away. she would probably be easier with a wizard around.

    When you turn the fear essences in to Cyndreela, she casts a blinding spell on you but don't panic like I did! When she does, it boots you back to Rupkerr. No damage done!

    Once you've spoken to Rupkerr the 2nd time and run past one of the portals, you instantly aggro the 1st portal guardian. The aggro range is pretty far, so be ready for a fight! The 1st portal guardian for us was dark blue to a level 86. When it reaches 60% health, a 2nd portal guardian (dark blue or white) will pop and begin to assist. Same happens when #2 is killed, only the 3rd guardian is yellow. The guardians ARE mezzable and snarable.

    Something else we noticed: when you get close to a portal, your buffs will randomly drop.

    Decided to try this quest even though I feared it was possibly bugged. Quest states to "collect essences from creatures in the area." After killing the undead and one of them not dropping an essence, I was beginning to think I was going to have the same result. However after killing a few lizards from the near by camp, I managed to collect all of the essences and continue on with the quest. So just keep killing mobs until you get what you need. Hope this helps.

    we tried it twice today. the first time we got 6/8 of the fear essence, then there was nothing on track, though we killed all the undead and several live mobs. When we regot the task we only got to 5/8. Killed everything in the SW area and no drops.......Hope they fix it, or somebody tell me what we did wrong?

    Trash mobs have about 450 - 475K. They don't summon.


    Most mobs here don't see invis, even the undead trash. If you try and run straight from the temple to Innothule swamp, there is a camp in between there with 3 lizardman brutes who see invis. If you run with auto run on, say if you are boxing, becareful. They will eat you.
