This is a solo task that begins with a Halfling named Crazy Verken (map) in the Valley of King Xorbb. He's found at -1600, -570, 100 (just west of the zone-in).

Pre-Requisites:
- Level 85
- No tasks

You say, 'Hail, Crazy Verken'

Crazy Verken throws his hands in the air and grins like a halfling child digging into a stolen pie. 'It'll be magnificent! The Minotaur Smasher will stride across this valley, bashing to bits even the biggest bullies! Then all of Norrath will know the might of Rivervale's [alchemy]!'

You say, 'What alchemy?'

Crazy Verken says 'All I need is some clay from creatures that live near the river, some crystals from the creatures in the mines and underground chambers, and flesh from magical creatures. But I don't want just any old ingredients: They must be taken from creatures at the peak of their power, at the pinnacle of their prime. They must be enhanced with this [solution].'

You say, 'What solution?'

Crazy Verken says 'Never mind what's in it. Just think of it as a performance augmentation, meant to prepare the ingredients within the bodies of potential donors. Just douse the body with the solution when you have weakened its health, making it more susceptible to augmentation. Then harvest my ingredients and feed it to my golem! Will you [do] such things for me? Will you help me kill those minotaurs and bring glory to Rivervale?'

You say, 'I will do it'

Crazy Verken says 'You are magnificent! And the Minotaur Smasher will be magnificent! Take the solution and perform magnificently!'

You receive "Animated Solution".

You have been assigned the task 'The Minotaur Smasher'.

Crazy Verken has asked you to bring him materials to help him construct his Minotaur Smasher. Verken gave you the Animated Solution to apply to enemies that you have sufficiently weakened. This will prime their bodies to produce material suitable to Verken's golem.



Loot 10 Animated Clay 0/10 (Valley of King Xorbb)

Loot 10 Animated Crystal 0/10 (Valley of King Xorbb)

Loot 10 Animated Flesh 0/10 (Valley of King Xorbb)

For the clay, you'll need to fight muddites and elementals. For the crystal, you'll need golems and crystal hydras. For the flesh, you'll need evil eyes and mephits.

With each mob you fight, DPS it to at least 30%, then click the solution. This changes it into an "augmented" mob (which also gives it an AE spell attack). Kill the augmented mob, which has a good chance of dropping the items needed.

Feed the Minotaur Smasher Animated Clay 0/10 (Valley of King Xorbb)

Feed the Minotaur Smasher Animated Crystal 0/10 (Valley of King Xorbb)

Feed the Minotaur Smasher Animated Flesh 0/10 (Valley of King Xorbb)

Note: If the Minotaur Smasher is fed enough times, it becomes active...

Speak with Crazy Verken 0/1 (Valley of King Xorbb)

No effect on lifeshard hydras. Hydras & golems near Krystal King work fine.

I did the Animated Clay 0/10 update yesterday evening before logging and can confirm a clayborn muddite should work now.

Seems like the mobs which are PH for named don't count for credit.
