Call of the Forsaken Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor

This is a pre-launch event ahead of the "Argin-Hiz" zone release (an extension to the storyline involving the Call of the Forsaken expansion).

It will be available July 7, 2014, through September 6, 2014 (at which time it will be permanently removed).

This is a solo task that begins with a Doomscale scout in South Ro in an NPC camp at /loc 800, -1700, 50. This is just east of the Wizard spires.

Pre-Requisites for Requesting:
- None

NOTE: There are nine pre-launch tasks for Argin-Hiz. It's recommended you pick up all that you can as several of them have steps that overlap with one another.

You say, 'Hail, a Doomscale scout'

a Doomscale scout says 'You come from Lanys? She and the dragon shall lead us to the end, but she must know what we face. [Bring] us the smoldering flakes of the ashes that seek fire and blaze anew. We also know giants of flame now beat upon the walls of Freeport. [Deliver] to us their burning embers.'

You say, 'I'll deliver some embers to you'

a Doomscale scout says 'The end is near. You should confess your sins to Lanys and the dragon.'

You have been assigned the task 'Embers of the Giants'.

The Doomscale scouts have heard of the burning ash giants that are attacking Freeport, and the scouts want you to bring them embers from the giants' corpses. Kill the ash giants, take their embers, and deliver them to the Doomscale scouts.

Deliver embers from the ash giants attacking Freeport to the Doomscale scouts 0/12 (South Ro)

Burning ash giants are found along the wall of Freeport in the far northern part of North Ro. These mobs hit for a max ~17,000; have a tremendous amount of hitpoints; are social with each other; single-target rampage; flurry; don't summon; are mezzable, but immune to stun, root, and snare; and have higher than average resists.

The item you're looking for is "Ash Giant Ember", but it isn't a guaranteed drop, and when it does drop, it's only one at a time.

Note that the roaming "a corpse seeker" mobs don't appear to offer any assistance. They assist the giants if they get within their range, have the same amount of hitpoints as the giants, don't update the task, and don't appear to drop anything. They may simply be a spawn mechanism for the giants.

Speak with a Doomscale scout 0/1 (South Ro)

You say, 'Hail, a Doomscale scout'

a Doomscale scout's face still cannot be seen under the hood, even in the glow of embers. 'There is great power, intelligence, and anger in the flame. Give this to Lanys.'

Analyzed Ash Giant Ember

This task is repeatable with a 6-hour lockout timer from the time of request.
