This task starts with Kerath Punox in Sul Vius: Demiplane of Life. She is located at -247, -216 east south east of zone in.

Keyword is "try again".

Task Steps

  • Defeat Grummus and the Heroes of Bertoxxulous 0/1 (Plane of Health)

  • Open the Diseased Supply Cache left behind by Grummus 0/1 (Plane of Health)

  • Task Summary & Strategy

    - Grummus! is a very straight forward event, and mostly a DPS check.
    - You are going to have four named NPCs that you will be forced to engage simultaneously prior to fighting Grummus.
    - There is no way to split pull the named NPCs and it is recommended to do a short duration burn using a specific kill order based on the level of threat each named poses.
    - Each named respectively drops a click item that will be required to use on Grummus to lower his defense shield. Loot these as soon as they drop.
    - When all nameds are dead, surround Grummus and target him. Everyone do their clicks to destroy his defense barrier.
    - Kill Grummus and loot the chest.

    The Named Encounters

  • Qezzin Adan.
  • He hits for an average of 25k and casts Roar of Terror regularly. This spell does a snare and a AE fear effect that lasts for up to 2 ticks or 12 seconds, so it is recommended you use a Paladin or Shadowknight to tank him to at least prevent the fear effect. In addition to this, he also does a 'knock down' type maneuver that requires you to stand up fast, because if you are the tank - you will drop to the bottom of his hate list. He drops the 'Amulet of Nightfall'.

  • Meedo Adan.
  • He hits for an average of 25k and casts Leechlife regularly. This is a detrimental spell that will reduce the targets hitpoints by 62850 every time it is cast. You likely want to have a Shadowknight run an epic 1.5 or 2.0 click to help offset the amount of damage your tank is going to be receiving, or at least have a real player healer who can splash the group regularly. He drops the Amulet of Dawn.

  • Raddi Adan.
  • He hits for an average of 25k and casts Culling Blade which is a PBAE that will hit every within 30' for 49225 damage. As mentioned above, it is recommended to have a Shadowknight on your team who can run epic or a real player healer who can splash the group regularly. He drops the Pendant of Darkness.

  • Pzo Adan.
  • He hits for an average of 25k and casts Veil of Zephyr regularly, an obnoxious PBAE stun with a 30' range that lasts for 2 seconds. He drops the Pendant of Illumination.

    The Shield Aura

    Grummus has a defense shield that has a damage aura attached to it. This damage aura will do up to 40k damage a tick on anyone in close vicinity of Grummus while his shield is up. After defeating the 4 named NPCs, everyone needs to stand about 20' away from Grummus with him targeted and do your clicks. There is no special order that the clicks need to be done. Once the shield is down, Grummus will charge.

    Fighting Grummus

    The Grummus fight has only one annoying mechanic, and that is the poison barrels. The poison barrels have aura damage that will do 40k damage a tick as long as you stay within that poison field. You will have to be prepared to move around the fight regularly because Grummus will throw them at your group constantly. Grummus hits for an average of 30k and will strike through defenses regularly. You only have approximately 2 minutes to get him down before he puts his shield back up. If his shield goes back up, you will need to use ranged fighting for the remainder of the fight.

    Special Mission Achievements

  • Faster... FASTER!
  • This achievement in particular requires your team to win the event in under 20 minutes. This achievement is not too hard to get, and you should realistically have enough DPS to finish this in about 10 minutes.

  • There Can Be Only One.
  • If Grummus' defense shield goes back up, there is a likelihood all the named NPCs will respawn. To get this achievement, it is best to get Grummus dead before the shield goes back up.

  • First Impressions Only Happen Once.
  • This achievement requires you to defeat Grummus before his shield aura goes back up. This requires significant DPS to pull off.

    For what it may be worth to someone in the future:

    I soloed Grummus as a paladin. That is to say, I started with a trio, but my two others died on the initial four minis, as did all of the mercenaries. I dropped Grummus' shield by clicking three of the quest bits, then I got Grummus to roughly 20% before he put his shield back up. Since I had nothing to lose, I went ahead and kept melee'ing him until he died (I expected to die from the aura, etc.).

    Additional information is needed!

    First off, you will be fighting all 4 named at once. UGH!
    Next, you will be doing it while Grummus is tossin barrels for AE booms!
    keyphrase "Grummus howls with laughter, 'Filth and Pestilence, Disease and Rot! A barrel full of death is what you... Um... Got!"
    keyphrase "Grummus throws out a barrel of poisonous filth!"

    Through out the fight had some odd messages:
    "Pzo and Raddi face each other and begin to shudder!"
    "Meedo and Qezzin face each other and begin to convulse!"
    "The air crackles with static as a tear opens in the very fabric of the plane itself! Grummus steps through the breach shouting 'Pestilence and death itself comes! I'll use your bones to pick your rotting flesh from my teeth! None can escape me' "

    I was able to separate two of the named away from the other, how ever when the second one died they respawned in place, and only got loot from the first one.
