This is one of 10 tasks to be completed in order to attain the Blessed Celestine Faycite augmentation.

This is the final task in a series of five and starts with Grom of Camp Valor in the Hills of Shade. It follows the previous task, 'The Spark of Life'.

You say, 'Hail, Grom'

Grom says _____! You've done it. These little sprouts are alive and well. Well, [for now] at least.'

You say, 'For now?'

Grom says 'Yes, for now. But you see that's what this whole thing as been about! These plants can only survive with the nourishment of the undead essence. Normally when we slay undead, their essence seeps back into the earth only to rise again. This plant actually consumes the essence to supplement its growth. A [new era] has begun, _____.'

You say, 'New era?'

Grom says 'You have the power to change the tide of this battle, _____. Are you ready to [do your part]?'

You say, 'I will do my part'

Grom says 'You must use the Undead Essence Extractor to collect enough essence to feed the plants. But beware; the essence is only attainable when the undead are in the throes of death. Now go do your best. Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid.'

You have been assigned the task 'Carrion My Wayward Sprout'.

At this point Grom will attempt to hand you an Undead Essence Extractor.

I've tried everything and cannot get essence to extract. I get the message "Your target does not meet the spell requirements. The essence whirs but does not light up." I have tried all mobs listed above (except crypt ghoul) and I get this message every time. I am literally on top of the mob at 4% or less so well within melee range but nothing works. Any ideas are welcome!

Every time I've used it on any undead with 10% or less hps, it tells me this:

Your target does not meet the spell requirements. The Essence Extractor whirrs but does not light up!

Is there something I am missing?

Try it at 4% or less.

Two questions
# Aug 24 2008 at 2:41 PM Rating: Decent
1. How close do you need to be to use the Extractor?
2. Does it only work at 4% or as the item states "less then 10%" ??

Within melee range is required.

Also the device states that it works on undead under 10% health, I have found however, that it works only when they are at 5% or fewer hitpoints, and only then when that is a low 5% (i.e. the game is rounding up to 5%).

Not accidentally killing them is the hard part here.

you need to be melee range to use extractor

# Oct 16 2008 at 6:57 PM Rating: Decent
You have to be fairly close (as in the mob's hitting distance). If you're soloing, it's hard to get the extractor off since these mobs don't run at low health.
Also works on......

If you wind up needing more charges, destroy your thing and hail him.

Grom says 'Ah, looks like you could use another extractor.'
