Pre Requisite Quests: Testing the Waters, For My Information and What Makes a Scorpiki?.

This is a shared task.

Seek out Hortulanus Cryolex in The Overthere in the outpost at /loc +1686, +2028, +2.

You say, 'Hail, Hortulanus Cryolex'

Hortulanus Cryolex says, 'There are many hidden treasures over here in the Overthere,' smiling seductively. She picks up a [plant], and it sways side to side, the plant's green maw snapping at the air.

You say, 'Is that plant one of your treasures?'

Hortulanus Cryolex says, 'Flora is often overlooked, yet it's amazing and often misunderstood! Plants take in sustenance from the sun and the soil and produce unusual [wonders]. I've had the luxury of studying many wondrous plants myself.'

You say, 'Tell me more of these wonders you speak of.'

Hortulanus Cryolex says, 'One subject in particular has been giving me trouble; I've given it sunshine and dirt, but it's given me nothing but heartache and hurt. I believe the plant has great promise, if only I can get it to grow! Now the previous iteration was no only promising but exceedingly dangerous,' She glances about furtively, lowering her voice. 'The [guards] have forbidden further experimentation near the outpost!'

You say, 'You need to void the guards?'

Hortulanus Cryolex says, 'Yes. My tenure will be, uh, revoked if there are any more mishaps here.... Y-You have no idea how much energy I've put into the succulent!' she blurts out. 'You know, they have a latent capacity to [grow] quite explosively.

You say, 'Could I help you grow this succulent?'

Hortulanus Cryolex nods, stroking her chin. 'Yes. I can tell that you're both able and eager to help. We will plant my latest experiment. If the seed takes, it will grow quickly and could be dangerous. You will want to bring reinforcements in case things go badly. Let me know when you're ready to go into the [field].'

You say, 'I'm ready to go into the field.'

Hortulanus Cryolex says, 'Good! I like your enthusiasm. One last question. Can you gather a [large] force or will we only need supplies for a [smaller] group?

You say, 'smaller'

Hortulanus Cryolex says, 'Just let me know when you're [ready].'

You say, 'ready'

The task locks here.

You have entered The Overthere.



Task Window Says: It is clear that Hortulanus's experiment will not go well. Your job is to make sure the horrible mess does not get too far out of control.

You say, 'Hail, Hortulanus Cryolex'

Hortulanus Cryolex says, 'Take this [scion] and quickly find a suitable place to plant it: to the south-east, away from here. If it takes, it will be very dangerous. Or do you wish to [leave]?'

You say, 'Give me the scion'

Hortulanus gives you a clicky (Quivering Scion) that you use to plant.

Once you use the clicky you will see this green text on the screen.

The plant begins expanding in short, jerky movements.

A tiny scream can be heard underfoot as the succulent takes to the fertile soil. It begins growing rapidly.

Rustling and snapping is heard as the unfolding of the succulent's growing flesh becomes audible.

  1. Defeat Catiikii!. 0/1 The Overthere


  2. Kill a monstrous succulent. He cons blue to 110.

    Once you kill a monstrous succulent. Catiikii and a burgeoning succulent spawn in the same place as the monstrous succulent.

    Once you kill the burgeoning succulent, adds will spawn. If more than 4 adds are up at a time, Catiikii becomes invulnerable. Catiikii will continue to spawn the burgeoning succulents are certain intervals until it is dead.

    Be aware that Catiikii has Shield of Needles buff on it which procs Agonizing Needles if you melee it (Single Target, Unresistable: Decrease HP when cast by 5000, Lifetap from Weapon Damage, Decrease Double Attack by 50%, Decrease Accuracy by 100%).

    Kill them.

    Once Catiikii is dead you'll see the following emote.

    You've put an end to Cryolex's failed experiment.


  3. Open the chest. 0/1 The Overthere

War, Clr, Wiz, Mage, Enc, Wiz. War full RoS Raid geared. others mix grp and raid. Not enough DPS to handle all the adds. Plus the charms. Can't even burn boss before adds overwhelm us... This is supposed to be for Grp content?! Ridiculous expansion where grp currency can only be obtained from impossible missions to grp geared players.

On the DB Forums there is a well-ordered discussion of the event. It is not easy. Seems there is some strategy involved, but as I recall, most emphasis is on optimized dps.

pally cleric druid zerker mage wizard was not enough dps to kill adds. Healing was not the issue. Very unhappy about the nerf. boss locks with adds up.
Can plant cati in city walls to eliminate killing trash and worry about getting punted into mobs . Any clue on what to do with this mission please let me know. 0-12 with diff group types.

This is in the test patch today, which will be patched on the live servers on the 21st.

Quote:
- Fell Foliage (mission) - removed the mechanic where Caktiikii teleports people into the ravine. Slowed the spawn rate of the adds and increased the number required for the boss to lock his HP by one.
- Fell Foliage (Mission) - reduced the number of the same cactus adds needed to create the atrocious cactus from 5 to 3. Also fixed a bug that caused one too many to be needed to spawn the atrocious cactus.


Maybe this will help your group into completing that mission.

So I'm on test and only been back in game for 2 weeks but running full conflagrant and level 110 on all chars about 20k aa on average.

The group is sk, necro, shaman, mage, bard with a merc. Frankly this mission is still unplayable for me I can only get the mob to 30% before I wipe regularly. I've finished every progresion in existence prior to this mission. I think this might be the first i don't finish, therei s no flexibility to get through with more healing or better tanking, or apply skill. It's simply a DPS check and a very high one because it's the first in any expansion I don't even come close to meeting.

Anyway I hope they tune this - there has a literally never been a group mission or named that I have not been able to kill until now. Even the ones people complained about previously. I've always been done progresion in no time but this is a whole other animal.
melee players?

The only thing that will not work with melee (from my experience) is a mage pet tanking. Because the mage pet is always at max melee range, the named will kill the melee, then turn back to the mage pet.

As a zerker, how do I get involved in this? Can I just throw axes at him, or do I need to do nothing and just "be there" to get credit for it?

Melee is fine with a competent healer. I've healed it on my cleric, and had shamans and a druid main heal this with various melee classes attacking.
caster only?

So if you got a group full of melee its pretty much impossible?
Adding info as i learn it. He hit my 106 SK for 36888 and spawns unmezzable adds who also have shield of needles buff so can't melee any of them. If too many adds are out he becomes invulnerable. Couldn't tell if the adds were time or % based.

Did all of the adds have this buff and were unmezzable?
