This is a sub-task assigned part way through the task "The Long Lost Puppet".

As this is a group task, you can bring additional players if you want.

You say, 'Hail, Bouncer Claude'

Bouncer Claude checks your ticket with a smile, 'Is this your first time seeing the show? You're going to love it! Gilda and Peppo are quite the puppet masters. I'll escort you to the stage when you're [ready].

You have been assigned the task 'The Halfling's Heavy Heart'.

You say, 'Ready!'

You have entered Theater: The Puppet Show.

In this zone, you will see Peppo (a large puppet) and Gilda (a female halfling using the Rivervale Halfling merchant model).

There are also numerous puppets on stage. All smaller, Brownie sized. Nothing in the zone is aggro until the script starts, at which point they go KOS at one at a time.

Mobs here do not assist each other and can be split. They have ~1.5 million hitpoints and hit for a max ~8,000.

Rescue Gilda from her captor 0/1 (Theater)

This is a simple hail update. Note: The task will lock shortly after the hail.

You may also want to get away from the stage as soon as possible after the hail so not to aggro the entire stage.

You say, 'Hail, Gilda'

Gilda lets out an incredulous gasp, 'You came here to save me? Did that creepy lovesick gnome put you up to this? As you can plainly see, I am not being held against my will. Now get off this stage and let us get on with our show!

Defeat the attacking puppets as the come to life! 0/14 (Theater)

Peppo reassures his partner, 'Relax, my dear. Their presence is not an interruption, in fact, it's part of the show!

Peppo shouts, 'And now, for the final act, the puppets fight back!'

The trash puppets go live one at a time, slowly at first, starting from the left of the stage going to the right. While you only need 14 kills for this step update, there are more than 14 puppets. They will continue going active one at a time until you have made 14 kills. Any additional puppets still active after your 14th kill will remain active.

Kill Peppo! 0/1 (Theater)

After the 14th puppet kill, Peppo goes active, but does not auto-aggro. He hits for a max ~2,000 and has ~2.6 million hitpoints.

Speak with Gilda 0/1 (Theater)

Hail Gilda to finish the mission:

You say, 'Hail, Gilda'

Gilda falls to the ground in a fit of tears, 'My Peppo! My dear, sweet puppet!' The blubbering halfling directs her gaze at you, 'This is all your fault! Just go, get out of here! Tell Gildamil he is dead to me, DEAD! I never want to see him again.'

NOTE: If you do NOT get your "Confront" step updated on the base task "The Long Lost Puppet", check to make sure none of the trash puppets are active (aggro'able). If they are, kill those and then hail Gilda again, which should update the step.

If, for some reason, you are unable to complete this task at the time you request it, you can repeat it at any time.

Finished the task and gated out, then realized I did not get the "confront" step update for the base task. Ran all the way back thinking I had to do the kill 14 step again but no. The remaining trash puppets and Gilda were still up, hailed again and got the update.

I would recommend hailing Gilda a few times to be sure you get both updates done.

Side note, I could single pull the trash puppets with HA no problem and fought in front of the stage area with no agro issues BUT when you kill the final 14th puppet Peppo did agro me right off. EIther he is auto agro or he has a huge agro range compared to the puppets. Also used the dragorn mask for size increase so I could pull them without line of sight issues.

Just double checked. This mission CAN be repeated even after you've finished the puppet task arc, so long as you have the ticket still and it is in your inventory. Just hail Bouncer Claude.
