This task is the second in a series of six. It's a shared task (1-6 players) that begins with Reena Kedson (map) in Grelleth's Palace, the Chateau of Filth. She is located at 1200, 265, 0 (zone-in area).

Pre-Requisites:
- Level 85
- Completed "Rise of the Swinetor"

You say, 'Hail, Reena Kedson'

Reena Kedson says '_____? Nice to see you. I hope you're here to help us out. These Fear Shards are causing more trouble than we expected. Still, I've had enough of these Alaran gods. We have enough trouble with the Norrathian ones. Let's put an end to this together, as one people. And we have a [plan].'

You say, 'What plan?'

Reena Kedson says 'It's simple. In theory. First, gather [information] on our enemies. Second, we'll have to take out the [scouts] and any other [defenses]. Then, after we gain [access], we'll have to deal with the palace [forces], and recover any [clues] as to their further plans.'

You say, 'Scouts?'

Reena Kedson says 'They are becoming a serious threat. We can't get reinforcements or resources into this valley with them skulking around and launching ambushes. See if you can find any information on this Turo. We'll need to find him. If you come across anything, let Ain know.'

You have been assigned the task 'Dirty Tactics'.

The scouts are causing trouble for the expedition, and they are the forefront for the swinetor advance. You'll need to help the expedition for them to have any chance.

Learn what Turo is having the scouts do. Defeat scouts until you find information.



Find information on Turo from the scouts 0/1 (Grelleth's Palace)

This is a random update from killing palace scouts (all over the outside of the zone).

a palace scout gasps as they clutch their wounds. 'No more pain! Gulta you want! Turo needs Gulta to spread swinetor power! Turo hides in palace!'



Speak to Ain Kavus 0/1 (Grelleth's Palace)

Task Window Says: It appears Gulta the Filthy is the lynchpin in the forward assault since Turo refuses to show himself as of late. Return to Ain Kavus with your findings.

Ain Kavus (map) is at the expedition camp.

You say, 'Hail, Ain Kavus'

Ain Kavus says 'It looks like Gulta the Filthy is our primary target. Turo is relying on Gulta to keep the scouts advancing. We can use this to our advantage. You should speak to Relco, he was working on ideas to lay traps and ambushes for the swinetor.'



Find out Relco's plan 0/1 (Grelleth's Palace)

Relco (map) is a little ways east of the expedition camp.

You say, 'Hail, Relco Finn'

Relco Finn says 'Oh? So this is about Gulta, right? She's a pig. Literally and metaphorically. I've seen her doing the rounds near the polluted lake, and she's always eating some filthy thing or another. Well, I got the plan to lure her out. Let's make a swinetor's favorite meal. Take this pot and fill it with the water they use for cooking out of that disgusting lake. Then add some bear meat, I think the quartermaster has some. When you're ready, lay it out near the lake. Good luck. I'll be staying here.'

You receive an Empty Rusty Stew Pot.



Create a rotting feast 0/1 (Grelleth's Palace)

Task Window Says: Gulta is known for her appetite. Craft a special swinetor feast to lure her out and ambush her. Fill the pot with water from the polluted lake outside Grelleth's Palace. Then, cook it with bear meat at an oven. There is an oven near the quartermaster, you recall, near the expedition team. The quartermaster was also selling bear meat.

Go to the polluted lake and right-click the pot there to fill it with polluted water (changes to "Filthy Water-Filled Stew Pot"):

You fill the pot with the filthy polluted water.

Then with it, combine "Bear Meat" (sold by the quartermaster NPC at the zone-in) in an oven (next to the quartermaster) to produce a "Rotting Feast".



Go to the polluted lake with the rotting feast 0/1 (Grelleth's Palace)

Right-click the Rotting Feast at the lake:

You lay out the cooked, rotting food.

This spawns Gulta the Filthy, who needs to be killed.

Gulta the Filthy squeals, 'A trap! I'll kill you anyway, then take that lovely food!'

Defeat Gulta the Filthy 0/1 (Grelleth's Palace)

Gulta the Filthy hits for a max ~13,500. While she doesn't have any special AEs or abilities, she is a Necromancer and sometimes casts Necro snare spells (pullers beware).

Note: Only one "Gulta the Filthy" can be alive at a time, so if another group has spawned her, you'll have to wait until they kill her before you can spawn her yourself.

Gulta the Filthy has been slain by _____!
Gulta the Filthy's corpse falls to the ground, hand outstretched towards the putrid smelling rotted feast.

Upon her death, Turo appears briefly, but does not aggro.

Turo says 'You aren't as clever as you think. I've been watching you the whole time. The first opportunity I get, I will drive this blade into your eye. But I'll fight on my own terms.'



Report to Reena Kedson 0/1 (Grelleth's Palace)

Task Window Says: Turo is not pleased with your actions, but Reena should be. Report your success to her in the valley of filth outside Grelleth's Palace.

You say, 'Hail, Reena Kedson'

Reena Kedson says 'With Gulta gone, Turo is going to stay hidden in the castle like the coward he is. The scouts are not going to be much of a threat anymore. However, we've still got other things to deal with. I know, no rest for the legendary hero, right _____?'

The scout advancement has been halted, but Grelleth and Turo won't give up easily. The expedition will still need help.

Gulta not spawning
# Jan 09 2014 at 11:46 AM Rating: Decent
As of this post, Task may be bugged. Gulta would not spawn for me after laying out the feast. Using map on EQ Resource for a location, and trying several spots in the general area all I get is the update of laying out the rotting feast at the polluted lake, but no Gulta spawn. Have clicked the pot invised, without invis, with and without levitation, had another group member try it....no Gulta pops.
