This task is the third in a series of three. It is a solo task that begins with Foreman Sukar (map) at the zone-in of the Breeding Grounds (-20, 0, 4).

Pre-Requisites:
- Level 85
- Completed "A Chilling Rescue"
- Completed "Treading Lightly"

You say, 'Hail, Foreman Sukar'

Foreman Sukar keeps his tone low as he details the plan to find out whom or what is slaughtering the dragon whelps within the Breeding Grounds. 'Use the incubator at various spots within the cavern to [dispense] an un-hatched egg, which will serve as bait. Make sure you stay close and observe what happens. When you've placed all the dragon eggs, report back to me.'

You say, 'Dispense?'

Foreman Sukar places the incubator carefully in your grasp, 'I've inspected all the dragon eggs and they appear to be unharmed. I don't like leaving these defenseless eggs out as bait, but I fear it's the only way we'll be able to find out who or what is preying on the dragons' young.'

You have been assigned the task 'Eggs as Bait'.

Foreman Sukar has asked you to place dragon eggs around the Breeding Grounds to catch who or what is destroying the Va`Ker's young.



Place a dragon egg on the frozen pond 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

Use the Dragon Egg Incubator at around 200, 35, -150 (this is in the ice cavern directly below the zone-in area, near the excavator update in a previous task).

Using the incubator at this location triggers the spawn of three mobs (which appear single in increments). They hit for a max ~11,000 and have an average amount of hitpoints. You have two minutes to kill the three mobs, or the task is reset to this step.

The incubator rattles slightly as a dragon egg appears before you.

a vicious terrorwing shrieks and flies toward you!

Protect the dragon egg from predators 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

a vicious terrorwing has been slain by _____!
a vicious terrorwing falls to the ground.



Place a dragon egg near the cluster of fear crystals 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

Use the Dragon Egg Incubator at around 850, -530, -120 (this is in the northeastern cavern of the zone -- in the vicinity of Charra's spawn point). This triggers the spawn of three mobs (which appear single in increments). You have two minutes to kill the three mobs, or the task is reset to this step.

Protect the dragon egg from predators 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

Repeat as in previous steps.



Place a dragon egg on the middle ledge above the mausoleum 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

Use the Dragon Egg Incubator at around 1685, 170, 130 (this is in the northern-most cavern of the zone; the fear area -- click it on the middle balcony that overlooks the treasure room). A hungry drake will fly in and consume the egg.

The incubator rattles slightly as a dragon egg appears before you.

Immediately after it lands, the terrorwing devours the un-hatched dragon, leaving only traces of broken shell behind before flying away.

Protect the dragon egg from predators 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

There is nothing you can do about the egg! It's gone.



Report back to Foreman Sukar with your findings 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

Task Window Says: You should inform Sukar that the Terrorwing have been eating the Va`Ker's young.

You say, 'Hail, Foreman Sukar'

Foreman Sukar gasps in horror, 'You observed a terrorwing feeding on the eggs of another dragon? Dragon's do not eat their young! This must be some sort of horrible mistake. Are you [sure] that is what you witnessed?'

You say, 'I'm sure!'

Foreman Sukar shivers slightly as the memory of a horrific undead dragon flashes through his mind. After a brief moment of stunned silence, he shakes the memory from his thoughts. 'If this is indeed true, the other dragons within these caverns are in grave danger. Eyska and her brood must be warned.'

Tell Eyska Va`Ker of your findings 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

Task Window Says: Eyska should be informed of what the Terrorwing are doing. (map)

You say, 'Hail, Eyska Va`Ker, The Broodmother'

Eyska Va`Ker, The Broodmother eyes you carefully, uncertain whether she should trust your words. After a considerable pause, curious fear wins out and she speaks, 'Dragons have a taste for almost any flesh, but we do not feast on our own unborn. However, I have heard of the dragons you speak of; the dragons whose scales are flecked with crystal. Slaughter their kind until you find an enlarged stomach. Bring it to me, and I shall spill its contents to look for evidence of your claims.' Eyska sharpens her claw against the ice in front of you as a warning, 'If the proof cannot be found, I will slice your stomach instead.'



Slay fear dragons until you recover an enlarged dragon stomach 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

Task Window Says: Eyska requires proof that the Terrorwing are devouring her young. She's asked you to slay fear dragons until you recover an enlarged stomach, which she will examine for proof.

This is a random update upon kills of terrorwing or fearwing mobs.

Return to Eyska Va`Ker with your proof 0/1 (The Breeding Grounds)

Task Window Says: Return with your proof to Eyska Va`Ker, The Broodmother.

You say, 'Hail, Eyska Va`Ker, The Broodmother'

Eyska Va`Ker, The Broodmother tosses the enlarged stomach on the ice before her. It slides a few feet away before the Va`Ker leader slashes at it with her claw, spilling the stomach's contents onto the icy floor. Eyska's looks on in horror as the still warm remains of her whelps cause steam to rise within her chambers. 'My children...', she weeps for the loss of her young as the rage builds in her bowels, building as it moves through her body, finally escaping her mouth in violent roar that echoes off the icy walls. 'They will pay for what they have done.'

You helped expose the Terrorwing's horrific deeds, while earning slight favor with the Va`Ker.

Your faction standing with Va`Ker got better.

they dont have too much hp but make sure to kill them as they spawn if possible to avoid having to deal with more than 1 at a time, 2 at once can be pretty deadly

The first two steps when you place the egg and kill the three mobs gave us updates for everyone in the group who had the task. When we placed it at the mausoleum though, only three of us got the update. We just had to plant egg with the other two in group and run and hail since no killing for the next step.
place dragon egg on ledge above the mausoleum

When I did this step (btw the egg is planted in the middle tunnel on the ledge overlooking the room below which you have to reach by going back where Sacundor is) I got 1 mob which was untargetable and he flew away with the egg. My task then updated to report back to Forman Sukar. I did no killing for this part. You have to respond with "sure" after hailing Forman to get your update for next part.
