This is a shared task (1-6 players) that begins with Kobok the Primalist in Pellucid Grotto, location: +380, +385, 9.

You say, 'Hail, Kobok the Primalist'

Kobok the Primalist says 'Mortal creature. I require a deed, if you have the time to [fulfill] it.'

You say, 'Sure, I have time to fulfill that'

Kobok the Primalist says 'I am involved with the collection of spawn-shards from certain specimens of crystalline primal creatures living in the Plane of Cinders. I maintain a menagerie of these creatures in the caves beneath our city, Geodech. I seek your [assistance] in obtaining more spawn-shards for me.'

You say, 'Assistance?'

Kobok the Primalist says 'Each spawn-shard is a budlike appendage of crystal that drops from a crystalline creature when it is entering the molting phase. Most of the time it is possible to find these shards on the ground, but lately they have become more scarce, perhaps because of Brell Serilis' untimely disappearance, soon may he return. I may not leave Geodech to go looking for them; Tronten believes the Autarchians may launch an attack against us soon, and needs me here. You must [go] in my place.'

You say, 'I'll go'

Kobok the Primalist says 'Go into the Plain of Cinders and find a Crystalline Matranont. It will be barely entering the adolescent phase, but I fear it may disappear like the other crystalline primals which are entering the molting phase. Please find a spawn-shard on the matranont, even if you must kill it. We must add as many spawn-shards to my menagerie as possible, to raise the army of crystallines we will need to defend the city later.'

You have been assigned the task 'New Mates For the Menagerie'.

Kobok the Primalist insists that it is now molting season for the crystalline primal creatures inhabiting the Field of Cinders, and you are to retrieve their spawn-shards for Kobok's crystalline menagerie.

Find a crystalline matranont and get its spawn-shards, killing it if necessary.

NOTE: Items in this task are NOT pre-lootable.

Kill a Crystalline Matranont 0/1 (Pellucid Grotto)

Loot a spawn-shard from a Crystalline Matranont 0/1 (Pellucid Grotto)

Hail the Autarchian Primalist 0/1 (Pellucid Grotto)

You say, 'Hail, an Autarchian primalist'

an Autarchian primalist says 'You are in service to Kobok and the others in Geodech who will not see the truth. We are aware of the plan to create domesticated crystalline defenders of the city. We are taking the crystal spawn-shards to build our own such army. You shall be eliminated before you can take this news to Kobok!'

Kill the Autarchian Primalist 0/1 (Pellucid Grotto)

Tell Kobok what the Primalist said 0/1 (Pellucid Grotto)

You say, 'Hail, Kobok the Primalist'

Kobok the Primalist says 'So the Autarchians are indeed hunting the molting crystalline creatures for their own purposes. I might have foreseen this, for they still think as we do on many matters. It would not have required much thought for them to have come to the same conclusion about the spawn-shards. This does mean that we shall have to change our plan. Instead of obtaining the shards from the primals, I must ask that you intercept and destroy any six Autarchians, and liberate any spawn-shards they may be carrying.'

Kill 6 Autarchians 0/6 (Pellucid Grotto)

Loot three crystalline spawn-shards dead Autarchians 0/3 (Pellucid Grotto)

Loot three gemcutter tines from dead Autarchians 0/3 (Pellucid Grotto)

Deliver 3 Autarchian Gemcutter Tine to Kobok the Primalist 0/3 (Pellucid Grotto)

Deliver 3 Crystalline Spawn-Shard to Kobok the Primalist 0/3 (Pellucid Grotto)

Speak with Kobok the Primalist 0/1 (Pellucid Grotto)

You say, 'Hail, Kobok the Primalist'

Kobok the Primalist says 'You have done well. Now I can continue the work to create a number of domesticated crystalline creatures that will aid in our defense. It is sad that even a single Autarchian had to die. Most disturbing that the unresolvable differences between Adherents and Autarchians has reached the point of violence.'

Very soloable as a 93 Necro with cleric merc. Pet was able to tank 2 mobs at a time with ease. watch out for autarchian lords as they see invis, as well as crystalline hulks.

Seems like the mobs in this mission when killed gives bad faction hits. Unsure if this is intentional or a mistake in programming
