You say, 'Hail, Bursin the Legend'
Bursin the Legend says 'There is a new [threat] to this Forge, greater than that of Erillion.'
You say, 'What threat?'
Bursin the Legend says 'The Forge grows hotter. When first the steel erupted from the mountain, the council sent the legends, attendants, and channelers to guard and salvage the Forge. We have kept temperatures low with our traditional cooling methods, but now the [heat] is becoming unbearable.'
You say, 'What heat?'
Bursin the Legend says 'A mass of molten steel has been welling up from the heart of the mountain. It is small now, but already our pipes and equipment are beginning to melt. The cooling tubes are melting, and we must carry water by hand to the mass. However, we do not have enough attendants to do the job. Could you [help]?'
You say, 'My help? Sure!'
Bursin the Legend says 'Thank you. If we cannot cool down the mass, I fear the Forge will erupt once again and collapse the rest of Argath. Speak with Attendant Shirian. Al has a plan.'
You have been assigned the task 'Critical Mass'.
The heat inside the Forge builds. Bursin the Legend believes it is close to erupting once more. Attendant Shirian believes al can cool the heat, but al needs help.
Speak with Attendant Shirian 0/1 (Argath)
Attendant Shirian spawns nearby, inside the forge.
You say, 'Hail, Attendant Shirian'
Attendant Shirian says 'This heat is intense, even for me! We do not have much time. Our cooling tubes have melted shut, and even now living steel is rising up from our molding cauldrons and coalescing on the steel mass in the heart. We need to act quickly! Draw near to the cooling pots, fill a vessel with water, and douse the steel mass, as well as any living globs of steel heading toward the heart!'
Shrink and destroy the mass of steel 0/1 (Argath)
Task Window Says: Fetch cooling water from the top of the water reservoirs. Use the water on the steel droplets and the erupting steel mass in order to cool them down.
NOTE: You may be able to update this step simply by killing the Steel Eruption (no cooling required). It's possible you'll still need to cool it (details below) if you're too slow to DPS.
At the center of the forge spawns a large ooze called "Steel Eruption". You need to go to the water reservoirs (the northwest and southwest parts extending from the center of the forge). Doing so causes a "Cooling Pitcher" to appear on your cursor (two charges of "Douse of Forge Coolant").
Equip the Cooling Pitcher in your primary, run up to the Steel Eruption (which will aggro you, hitting for a max ~10,000; in addition to regular "molten steel" spawns around and its own adds, "a steel droplet" which hit for a max ~1,000).
Use the Cooling Pitcher on the Steel Eruption. This will cause it to shrink in size. Once shrunk, you can kill it for the update.
NOTE: As it's aggro'd, mobs called "a steel droplet" spawn and attack. If these make it to the main mob, the Steel Eruption grows in size. The Cooling Pitchers can be used to stun these droplets.
Speak with Bursin the Legend 0/1 (Argath)
You say, 'Hail, Bursin the Legend'
Bursin the Legend says 'Well done, _____, the Forge has cooled, for now. Tell Atleris what occurred here. And have ali send more food if al can!'
