|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the OLD version of the Grimling War quest series which is no longer available on live servers.
This is one of 4 or 5 quests which results in a key for entry into the castle area of Acrylia Caverns. It is designed for a group of about 12 Level 40 players.
You say, 'Hail, Scout Derrin'
Scout Derrin says 'Greetings Illia, what brings you to the battlegrounds? Looking to raid a grimling camp perhaps?
You say, 'I would like to raid a grimling camp'
Scout Derrin says 'I can lead a dozen men of my strength on a raid against a well fortified grimling encampment. It's a risky mission, but one that has the potential to yield substantial rewards. If you have the manpower and the courage, give me a glowing acrylia sphere and we'll get started.
The sphere can be bought from Shopkeeper Chirrin in one of the huts in the Val Shir outpost for 100p. Handing Scout Derrin the sphere will have him respawn with weapons, and lead you to the camp.
Scout Derrin says 'Draw your best weapons, memorize your most deadly spells and cast your best enhancements. Prepare yourselves for a fierce battle!'
Follow Scout Derrin across the bridge towards the grimling camp. He will pick a camp at random and walk towards it.
Scout Derrin says 'Follow me closely, we cannot afford for anyone to get lost.'
Continue westward following the Scout to the grimling camp.
Scout Derrin says 'I must survive this invasion in order for it to be successful. Stay alert and make certain that I do not perish! When you are ready to bring our invasion to a close hand me the eye of an officer.'
Scout Derrin says 'The target camp is just over this ridge to the west. Half of you stay here and make your last minute preparations. Listen, and when you hear my command, charge the camp. The other half of you follow me now.'
You must keep Scout Derrin alive in order to complete the quest. After the initial attack, you'll need to continually fight off waves of grimlings before the Grimling Officer will eventually appear. Be warned that the Grimling Officer is stronger than the others and cannot be stunned, mesmerized or the like.
NOTE: The "a grimling officer" appears to be completely random as to how long he will take to spawn. He will eventually pop inside one of the waves of grimlings that charge the camp but we saw it take anywhere from 2 to 40 waves.
Kill the grimling officer and loot "Grimling Officer's Eye" from him, hand this in to Scout Derrin to finish the assault.
Scout Derrin says 'Excellent! Completing a raid upon this encampment is a feat to be proud of. May this medal dispell all doubt that you have indeed accomplished this feat. I advise you to leave now, as this area will surely be taken over by the enemy at any moment.'
He gives you the "Gold Lined Copper Medal of War" and walks back to the Vah Shir base camp.
