    This is a shared task (1-6 players) that begins by handing a "Sealed Message" (dropped by "a Sebilisian messenger") to any of the Ring of Scale dragons in the Field of Scale. The message reads as follows:

    You must recapture that sarnak. Failure will not be acceptable.

    *The dragons may be interested in an escaped sarnak. You should show this note to one of them.

    Note: No other "Sealed Message" will work. Only the one with the above text will work for this task.

    Trakanon says 'Well, that's very interesting. We need to locate this escapee before the Iksar do. Track down the escapee quickly and perhaps we can learn something from him.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Sarnak Recovery (Kurn)'.



    Kill 3 Sebilisian Trackers 0/3 (Field of Scale)

    Find the Escaped Sarnak with information 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Fight escaped Sarnaks until you get one to confess. Make sure you don't pet tank this - you may not get the emote if you do. Beat it down to around 20% and then start hailing it with NO DAMAGE until the mob either responds to you and updates task, responds that it won't surrender, or starts to flee. If either of the last two occur, kill it and pull the next mob.

    an escaped sarnak footman says 'Stop hitting me! I'll tell you what you want to know!"

    Find Kurn among the Iksar patrol squads 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    You'll need to find a Sebilisian patrol leader (wanders usually around the tower base but can be elsewhere) and kill it.

    a Sebilisian patrol leader's corpse falls to the ground.
    Your task 'Sarnak Recovery' has been updated.

    The direction to someone related to current task has been marked on your compass.

    Speak with Trakanon 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    You say, 'Hail, Trakanon'

    Trakanon was displeased with your results, but he did not devour you. He must like you. He seemed almost amused at the effort you expended following the lies of a pathetic Sarnak.

    The Sarnak Recovery tasks have a lockout timer of +4 1/2 hours. Upon success of 1st task, I attempted a turn in of a second sealed message, I received this tell: "You may not request this shared task because you must wait 0d:4h:33m before you can do another task of this type."

    Pet/merc tank problem

    I think I've figured out (after much aggravation) the problem with the pet/merc tank. It seems that the individual tanking the sarnaks MUST be in the task.

    I don't know what specifically qualifies "tanking the mob" as far as the task is concerned, since my pet would tank from 100%, and my girlfriend's Shaman would tank from 30% to 0%, and the sarnak would run away every time with no emote or update. This was done both with and without spamming hails at the sarnaks.

    We added an SK to tank, but neglected to add her to the task and had the exact same effect - she tanked from 100% to 0% with no task update or emote, hails or no. Once in the task, we got the update with no hails.

    In order to get this task, you turn in the "Sealed Message" that reads as follows:

    I can offer you no assistance. My own forces are needed in defense of my sector. Perhaps if you were to ask Warmaster Kurn for assistance he might find the time to help you. Perhaps you will learn something from him about expending your troopers needlessly.
    Update FTW?

    I'm trying to get Task Stage 3 to update. One person mentioned that it required a hail, some mentioned you just kill it.....and I'm mentioning that neither seems to be working because the Patrol leader's don't respond to hails at all and i've killed about 8 of them so far with no luck hailing or killing


    Anyone got a for sure answer on this update?


    Woot, finally got my update...details here:

    The patrol leaders wandering around are kinda like a PH I would guess, the one that gave me the task update had a full escourt. Bard split and pulled to zone wall, stopped at 18% and hailed, nothing, Mezed and hailed, nothing, Killed...got update!

    For step 2, the escaped sarnak offered up his statement at 20% while being hit and with DoTs.

    For step 3, a patrol leader happened to be up, but not near kurns. My bard tracked him and pulled. We got update on kill.

    Step 3 is find the meeting place. It's an island in upper right hand area of water, marked on map.

    Step 4 is kill the emissary. One of 4 mobs on the island. Snareable, rootable.

    these steps are for wrong version

    Step 3 is to kill mobs at base of tower until you see a patrol leader with 4 troopers following him.. (Splitable) .. kill him and get update

    Step 4 Talk to Dragon 8-)

    1. Make sure you don't pet tank this - you won't get the emotes right with you do. This is similar to the bug that was occuring in a Library task, but they didn't fix the FOS mobs when they fixed that.
    2. To get the emote, you beat it down to around 20% and then start hailing with NO DAMAGE until the mob either responds to you and updates task, responds that it won't surrender, or starts to flee. If either of the last two occur kill it and pull the next mob.
    3. For the Kurn mob, its like the sarnaks. You need to find a squad leader wandering around the tower base, pull it, and hail same as you did with the sarnaks to get an update.

    Hailing doesn't do anything. Simply kill the right kind of mobs until the task updates. It's random.
