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.
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%).
Once Catiikii is dead you'll see the following emote.
You've put an end to Cryolex's failed experiment.
