This is as Scorched Sky Event mission that runs in late June to mid July that first appeared live on June 27th, 2022 at 12AM.

You can get this task from Keeper Kayne in Lavastorm Mountains next to the Broodlands tunnel entrance. She is on the find tool CTRL F.

You say, 'Hail, Keeper Lyne'

Keeper Lyne says, 'Hail adventurer. Do you follow [the flame]?'

You say, 'Yes, I follow the flame.'

Keeper Lyne says, 'Hrrm. Not all [can burn] the world down.'

You say, 'I can burn many things.'

Keeper Lyne says, 'Indeed. I may have a use for you. I have tasked a few goblin keepers with finding a new home for the [lava snails], while the [minerality issue] is taken care of.'

You say, 'What minerality issue?'

Keeper Lyne says, 'Seek out Carlene Snizzlefriz, fellow Devotee of Flame near the Temple of Solusek Ro.'

You say, 'Lava snails?'

Keeper Lyne says, 'Yes, the goblin keepers have taken the snails into the Broodlands until the season changes. Can you check on them and assist as needed to [help them] care for the snails?'

You say, 'I can help them.'

Keeper Lyne says, 'Great, head into the Broodlands when you are [ready].'

You have been assigned the task 'Guardians of the Snails'.

You say, 'I am ready'

Keeper Lyne says, 'May the lava guide your path.'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...

You have entered The Broodlands: Guardians of the Snails.




Keeper Lyne wants to make sure that the snail keepers take care of their charges. Head to the Broodlands and check in with each of the snail keepers.

Keeper Lyne is located at -567, -1285, 72.

To leave the instance, target Keeper Lyne and say:

You say, 'Yes I want to return to the Lavastome Mountains.'

Aviaks have zone wide aggro. If you intercept them before they aggro the snails, they will not attack the snails, yet. The snails die fast.

Each time the aviaks spawn, you will see an emote: The buffeting sounds of large wings can be heard followed by the shrieks of hungry aviaks. Protect the young lava snails from certain doom.

If you leave the zone and come back, all aviaks including Garhyne the Great Shrike that are alive will aggro and come to the zone in point.

Do not aggro the snails, they will all attack you.

There's a ton of random zone trash roaming all over the place, should clear out some of it in an area before you spawn the Aviaks. I went right into the snail camps and kept getting aggro from things roaming around, at one point I had like 10 trash mobs on me + the Aviaks. Next time I go for the other achievements I'll make sure to clear the roamers.
