The Darkened Sea Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor



About Heroic Adventures:

- They use the task system (steps are shown in task window, but steps are only revealed as you get to them).
- Scale in difficulty, loot quality, and mob levels (based on your group's highest level player - as low as 85).
- Tuned for 2-3 players and their mercenaries.
- Nameds can spawn as you progress through the task (you usually have to complete a few steps before this can happen).
- Collection items can drop from mobs in the instances, and ground spawns appear midway through tasks.
- Expected time of completion will vary by your group's makeup (anywhere from 30-90+ minutes).
- There is some variations/randomization in the task steps you'll be assigned as you progress through the task.

About Our Documentation of Heroic Adventures

- We only display task steps we know about.
--- If you encounter a step that isn't documented here, please post the details (or email us) and be sure to indicate which step number it was so that we can display it in its proper place.

TASK IN DETAIL

========================================================================
TRIGGERING THE TASK
========================================================================

You say, 'Hail, Mough Kyslaz'

Mough Kyslaz says 'Yeah? You another one of them [adventurers] lookin' for any job that pays?'

You say, 'Adventurers?'

You suddenly take note of Mough's surprisingly unattractive face as he turns to speak to you. 'Yeah well yer used to this. There's somethin' I want and can't get but maybe you can. That siren's song lures out all kinds of folk and not one of them seems too upset about how hideous them sirens is. You bring me back that [song] and I got a fair prize for ya.'

You say, 'Yes... I'll get the song...'

Mough Kyslaz says 'Good, tell me when yer [ready] to go.'

You have been assigned the task 'Seductive Subterfuge'.

Mough Kyslaz has been tormented by his own appearance since birth. He believes his luck will change if you are able to capture the siren's song for him.

You say, 'Ready!'

Mough Kyslaz says 'Good luck down there.'

I got: Destroy the elementals 0/8. I found 6 at location Q and 8 at location M. None saw through regular invis and they were various types of elementals, which all counted for the task.

Success Lockout Timer: 06:00:00

im not 100% on this, but im pretty sure lock out is 3 hours, not 6.

I did The Edge of Balance right before doing this mission and /tasktimer currently says:

The Edge of Balane: 0d:3h:47m remaining
Seductive Subterfuge: 0d:1h:22m remaining

this was my first run through this mission and kind of took my time so about 90~ mins seems right on time spent.

The lockout timer starts from when you get the mission. not when completed. So for example if it is 6 hours. if it takes you 2 hours to complete, your lockout time will be 4 hours.

No named spawn for us, alas Did loot 2 collectibles and located another 3 by scouting around. These pages are really tough to find in the Bazaar and when they're offered they're priced crazy high, at least on FV. Really easy at 105 with good gear. Killed the 28 mobs needed in about 20 minutes. Was pulling 3-4 at a time to save time.

When the named spawned, right after the emote about 4 shining points of light, you get a yellow on-screen emote that says "a formidable foe approaches"

I found two collects in the room at the top of the spiral. Looked every where else I could think of to find the other two, but didn't see them.

1. Clear the tunnels of aggressive sea life 0/14
2. Eliminate the enthralled 0/9
3. Speak to Mough Kyslaz

There are always 3 steps: 2 kill updates and a final hail. There is no 3rd kill update step as is currently shown in the info right now. Correction to Jidokwon's post about "Entralled" mobs: They are definitely in the "N" and "P" areas on the map, but they *are NOT undead mobs*. They **appear** undead (like zombies), but they change form to living, pirate-type mobs around 40-45% hp. I am a cleric, and I can tell you that they do not respond to Invis vs. Undead, nor do they respond to Smite the Wicked or Turn Undead. Except for the "as enthralled witch," they do not see invis (maybe "an enthralled evoker" also sees invis, but they are uncommon).

Only 3 steps, not 4.
Collectibles and namer/PH spawn once Step 2 completed.

Collectibles were not localized -- I found 3 in three distinctly separate areas. Scoured every inch of the zone for another half hour and never did find the 4th.

My group did this HA and one of the steps was killing enthralled mobs. We didn't have a tracker, so it took us quite a while to find the mobs. They are undead in the N and P areas on map here.
