      The NPC you need to speak to to request this mission is Karth Punox, located in Sul Vius: Demiplane of Decay.
      The request phrase to acquire the mission is 'work'.




      Task Steps

    • Defeat Grannus of the Cleansing Steam. 0/1 (Ruins of Lxanvom)

    • Destroy the portal leading to the Plane of Health 0/1 (Ruins of Lxanvom)

    • Open the chest 0/1 (Ruins of Lxanvom)





    • Task Summary

      To start the event, speak with Jerill in the basement in the Ruins of Lxanvom. He will be inside the room that you engage Grannus. After triggering the event, you will engage Grannus and his several add spawns. After defeating Grannus, you will need to locate the portal and destroy it. Once you have destroyed the portal, the chest will become available to open.




      Engaging Grannus

      1. The Basics. This is a very DPS oriented encounter. Grannus hits for an average of 30k, is fast, and strikes through defenses regularly. About midway through the fight, he will summon a litany of adds. One add in particular is a unicorn that will roam throughout the room you are fighting him in. This unicorn is not attackable and is simply there to be a nuisance by doing a knockback if he paths nearby. When you engage Grannus, just unleash everything you have in your arsenal.

      2. The Adds. Depending on the DPS of your group, the adds will spawn on average around 50% of Grannus' health. Each add hits for an average of 20k and there are typically 4-5 of them by the end of the encounter. DO NOT KILL THE ADDS. If you kill just one add, even by accident - it will put Grannus into super regeneration mode and make him unbeatable. It is recommended you use a Warrior to offtank the adds, because a Shadowknight or Paladin riposte may inflict too much damage during the full burn and incidentally kill one of the adds. If you have no one to offtank the adds, just have your main tank grab all the mobs and keep aggro at all times while the others DPS Grannus hard! Once Grannus is defeated, the adds will despawn.




      The Portal

      The Portal is located around the north side of the instance, typically where you find Ilsa Granger in the non-instance for quests. Now the portal itself has a very odd hit box. You are going to have great difficulty targeting it using your mouse, so it is recommended you simply type /target portal to pull up a valid target ring for the portal and have people /assist you on the target. When you destroy the Portal, the the chest will pop and you are done!




      Special Mission Achievements

      There are three special achievements that go with this mission:

    • No Unity (Group)

    • No Restoration (Group)

    • Non Transferable (Group)


    • These three achievements are purely based on how fast you can kill Grannus. The key to getting all three achievements is to defeat Grannus in under 45 seconds. The 45 second marker is the threshold for when the first heal will be cast by one of the healing oozes. If you cannot defeat Grannus in under 45 seconds, then you will not be able to get all the achievements.

      Mission is simple if you have Raid power.
      Mission is crap if you have only Group Gear Power.

      Raid Gear: Burn in down in 30-40s from intial start, while Tank AE-Taunts and is nearly invulnerable or with heavy mitigated. Wiz/CasterDPS + Burn AA makes him Dust.

      Group Gear: completely borked...

      Theoretical Strat:

      - Tank: AE-Taunt, optional Second tank for the resulting big golem which is really nasty after the 3 adds form a big add together
      - Healer: Spams AE-Corruption-Cure min 35. If any if these Healing-Debuff-Dots from Grannus fires then he gets healed very fast
      - Nuker: Spell damage is only possible when it is annouced
      - BUG: Spell damage is announced to work after a while but does not
      - 50% Spell Damage, 50% Melee Damage is working
      - Unicorn is mezzable (Enc/Brd)
      - Ooze is AA-rootable in a corner (Dru/Rng)
      - Steam must be tanked (offtanked)
      - merging big Steam (Golem merges after a time) offtank (big damage output)
      - adds are 3 normally which merge into a very nasty hard hitter (offtank)
      - Group-Spam-Cure when nasty Heal-Dots/Mitigation-Dots are coming from start (after fade its uncurable)
      - only burn in the time frames for melee with melee - time frame weakness for spells wit spells

      If it would not be borked with that invu message at 0-50% this would be also doable by a group.
      Oh and you need constant dps in the vulnerable time frames because he regens like hell.

      DGB: Don't smoke too much weed while designing crap like this....

      This time adds killed at 30% then it just looped, the messages of resistance dropped but it never did both spell and melee never could touch him, he stayed 100% for 45 mins until we gave it up. Tried porting out and coming back but the same no change.

      Seriously annoying content if you don't have a melee heavy group. The instant the named hits 65% health it goes reflective to all spell and proc damage. Necro swarm pets (probably other summoned swarms, as well) are disallowed by whatever broken mechanic is in play. (Takes the necro's mana, but no pets are forthcoming.) Periodically the mob would change appearance and/or we got a message that its resistance to magic had dropped, but the magic resistance buff either failed to drop or was instantly reapplied with continued inability to land any spells or melee weapon procs.

      Best way to kill this seems to be caster burn until it hits 65% / reflective, then melee burn the rest of the way while the casters focus on any adds that spawn and try to heal the named. If you don't have good melee dps, I'm not sure there's a way to win this.

      Group: Mage, Wiz, Chanter, SK, Bard, Clr.

      Positioning: Tank in corner, everyone else close to tank with back to wall due to knockback.

      Strat: After the first hail, all hit burn keys. Finished him quickly and our group got all 3 achievements.

      Achievements:
      No Unity (Group): Do not allow a Radiant Steam Soother to spawn.
      No Restoration (Group): Do not allow any healing ooze to heal Grannus.
      Non Transferable (Group): Ensure that every instance of Transference of Harm are removed near Grannus.

      Defeat Grannus of the Cleansing Steam. (0/1)
      - Trigger the event by speaking to Jerill in the basement. He'll be right in the main port up room and after talking to him he'll walk away into the hallways. Grannus of the Cleaning Steam will path into the main room soon after Jerill leaves.
      - A multitude of adds spawned throughout the fight, my group simply burned the adds when they were up and burned the boss. Adds for us started ~35-40%.
      - Some of the adds that show up heal Grannus, others don't do anything special. Toward the end of the fight we did have "a unicorn" show up which has a knockback aura that knocks anyone back who gets to close.


      Destroy the portal leading to the Plane of Health (0/1)
      - Go to the northern most room of the basement and /tar portal to locate it. It can be hard to see but it is in the northern most room. Kill the portal to spawn the chest. (Nothing happens while killing the portal, it's the equivalent of killing a chest or barrel)

      Open the chest (0/1)
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      *Side Note*: Our group make up was my boxed 105 SK, Shaman and Wizard and my buddy boxing a 105 SK and Bard. Our sixth person was a healing merc. All toons are nearly max AA and the healing merc was max AA. The 2 SK's are COTF raid geared and the rest are all TDS T3 group geared (including TDS merc gear).
