This group mission begins with Officer Vacax Rol`Tas (click for map image) in the Dark Reign camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Average group level minimum 68
- Minimum "indifferent" faction with Dark Reign
- Completion of "Blood of the Basilisk"
- Completion of "Clearing the Path"
- Completion of "The Burning Poison"

You say, 'Hail, Officer Vacax Rol`Tas'

Officer Vacax Rol`Tas laughs, 'These are indeed good days for the will of hate and fear. We will overcome the races of light and prevail. Pledge allegiance to Lanys T`Vyl!'

You have been assigned the task 'Have Note Will Travel'.

Hm. I'm surprised to see you here. I won't say I'm pleased, but perhaps you may prove useful as I see you have survived other simple tasks thus far. Some believe the goblins in Tirranum's Delve plan to take up arms against us. You must go thwart their efforts. Should you fail, don't dare show your face here again.

Touch the cave entrance to Tirranum's Delve 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Once in the Broodlands, your compass will guide your direction.

You have entered Tirranun's Delve.

Look for information on the source of the uprising 0/1 (Tirranum's Delve)

Kill goblins (many of them), watching for emotes. After about 20 kills, you'll occasionally see this emote upon death:

The goblin falls before being able to sound the alarm.

Keep killing goblins until you see this:

As the Delvian falls to the ground you can hear a siren going off. Your presence has been made known. Quickly find the Goblin Task Master for the information you seek.

Now, find and kill the Goblin Task Master, located at the northern entrance to the temple. It hits for a max ~1,100; has ~170,000 hitpoints; summons; is immune to stun/mez; and procs "Goblin Headbutt" (3-second stun).

Goblin Task Master has been slain by _____!
Your faction standing with Minions of Tirranun got worse.
Your faction standing with Tirranun got worse.

Loot one Letter from Tirranun 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)

Loot this from the task master's corpse.

Defeat all the goblin guards on your way to the entrance 0/9 (Tirranum's Delve)

Quickly make your way back to the entrance before you are caught 0/1 (Tirranum's Delve)

Kill 9x "a Delve guard" on your way out (you can't really miss them). They spawn in groups of three, but are stunnable and mezzable.

Upon reaching the entrance, the task completes and you see:

The goblins were no match for you, but Dark Reign likely has more dangerous tasks in mind for you.

Hmm, 66,73,90 ..... think it's more like the minimum lvl is 68.
This don't seem hard.

The 2016 update: Just walk through until you see what you want. So what if you have most of the zone beating on you as you plod along? It's not like they can do damage to you. Being level 105 with 12K AA solves little problems like this.

Had 2 in group and tried to accept this quest - message I got was:

[Sun Aug 17 19:09:23 2008] You can not be assigned this shared task because your party does not contain the minimum required number of players.

Thus, seems lledier was correct - this is not a solo task.

Seems, from what i've seen, that you need a minimum of 3 for all the DoN tasks that are 1 group. I haven't figured out the exact number for the raids, but again, it seems like there's a minimum (like more than 2 groups)
3 box

Goblin Counts

Just did this recently,

I counted 25 goblins killed (any type: champion, sneak, shaman, evoker) to get the Task Master to spawn. This is pretty much accomplished by killing goblins that stand in your way to other end of zone (from south to north), without having to take detours into side rooms, but killing a few roamers as well as the static spawns.

The 9 guards needed on your way back don't need to be tracked... They are also right on the way from north to south. Only concern for smaller parties is that there will probably be respawns of the regular goblins as well as those guards to deal with. Might be easier to run for the exit, zone out, and clear back towards the guards, since they are easier to single pull when they are facing away from you :)

Good luck :)

This instance takes place in Tirranun's Delve. We zoned in, and invis'd past the drakes. We killed 17 goblins to spawn the Goblin Task Master. Kill the Goblin Task Master (loc +1617, -155) and loot the note. The goblin guards spawn immediately upon the death of the Task Master. Kill 9 goblin guards and zone out to finish the task. This task does respawn.

Touch the cave entrance to Tirranun's Delve (1/1)
Look for information on the source of the uprising (1/1)
Loot 1 Letter from Tirranun from Letter from Tirranun (1/1)
Defeat all the goblin guards on your way to the entrance (9/9)
Quickly make your way back to the entrance (1/1)

You cannot get this task Solo.
Spawned on us

We had several of the guards spawn on top of us after we defeated the taskmaster. We were fighting him in the hallway where he spawns. Killed him and our 70 druid went down hard and fast.
Have note, we done

ok, did this with 2 War's, 1 Enc, 1 Brd, 1 Clr, and 1 Sk. it went quite quickly and with only a little delay waitin for the Task Master to pop. with 6 people all at 70 we got 39 ebons each. Goblin Headbut seems to be a spell as well. When we got close to teh entrance we rushed teh entrance bard leading the charge.
Goblin Headbutt

Ok we finished that yesterday with 4 peeps (boxed). War Cle Mag Enc all Lvl 70, yielded 29 Ebon Crystals each. We used pet to pull at times or War just trained lotsa Mobs away and in that time Mage went to new spot and cothed the War. Problem with pulling is that the Goblin Guards use a spell/Proc? Goblin Headbutt which stuns the target. Took us 4h but we wiped once near end cause repops got us. Much easier with a full group and a FD puller I guess.
