|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group task is the second in a series of five (following the "Freeing an Elder" task) and begins with the Shadowalker Dustspirit who can be found in the northwestern part of Stoneroot Falls at location -685, +850. |
You say, 'Hail, Shadowalker Dustspirit'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'Hello. We have received word back from Elder Longshadow. Thank you again for your efforts. She also mentioned that you may be [needed] once again.'
You say, 'How am I needed?'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'Before Longshadow was captured she was on her way to investigate reports that the drachnids have stumbled across something very powerful. If we find out enough information regarding this device we may have a chance of surviving the death that is prophesized in the [visions] of the Elders.'
You say, 'What visions?'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'The tribal Elders have seen visions of a great war brewing, not unlike the War of the West Tunnels when the werewolves of Darkhollow engaged in civil war and formed two clans. I fear however that this war would cost us far greater a toll. Please go now and locate the drachnid camp that Longshadow was investigating. I pray we have not taken too long already.'
There are three versions of this task: Hard High Level (group average level 66+); Normal High Level (66+); Low Level (65 and under). The only difference between them is the quality of loot and difficulty/levels of mobs.
You have been assigned the task 'The Orb of Subversion'.
Find the cave entrance to the Hive 0/1 (Stoneroot Falls)
Task window says: Find a way into the drachnid hive and see what you can discover about this mysterious source of power.
The entrance is marked on your compass. It is in the drachnid part of Stoneroot Falls.
Destroy the Drachnid Poisonmaster 0/1 (The Hive)
Task window says: It seems that an orb of power is in possession of an entity known as the Drachnid Poisonmaster. Seek out the poisonmaster's domain and retrieve the orb through any means necessary.
The Drachnid Poisonmaster spawns at the top of the fourth cocoon (outside the Dreadspire Keep entrance). He casts the following spells:
Blinding Ash: PB AE 100', Unresistable (0)
Venomous Fog: PB AE 100', Poison (-400)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1500
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 800 per tick
3: Increase Poison Counter by 35
Woven Ire: Single Target, Disease (-1000)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 300 (L1) to 384 (L85)
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 200 (L1) to 284 (L85) per tick
3: Improved Spell Effect(Woven Ire Trigger)
As you fight him, he'll teleport away (note upon doing this, he strips himself of any debuffs):
Drachnid Poisonmaster shouts 'You shall not defeat me! I still have the strength to teleport to safety! I suggest you do not follow, my traps are deadly!'
He'll do this three times: The first time, he warps one floor below. The second time, another floor below. The third time, he warps to the first cocoon (which is empty of mobs except for him).
Loot the Orb of Subversion 0/1 (The Hive)
Task window says: The Orb of Subversion must be this instrument of power, but it gives no indication of how it works. Take care in transporting the orb back to Dustspirit!
Deliver the orb to Shadowalker Dustspirit 0/1 (Stoneroot Falls)
Upon giving the orb to Dustspirit:
This orb gives me a bad feeling. I sense that this won't be the end of its trouble.
