This solo task is the first of three tasks that begin with Mardan Howlinblade in Arthicrex (location: -260, 940, 5 -- outside the entrance to Fungal Forest).

You say, 'Hail, Mardan Howlinblade'

Mardan Howlinblade says 'Have you seen them?! They've not returned yet! So much to do and now I have [missing] dwarves to deal with!'

You say, 'Missing?'

Mardan Howlinblade says 'Aye. We sent a patrol out day before last, and they've not [reported] back.'

You say, 'They haven't reported back?'

Mardan Howlinblade says 'I would have sent someone out to [search] for them, but we are short-handed as it is! I cannot afford to lose more men!'

You say, 'Search?'

Mardan Howlinblade says 'I know how you Upworlders are always looking for trouble. Can you go out and look for the [patrol]?'

You say, 'I'll look for the patrol'

Mardan Howlinblade says 'When you find them, tell them that Mardan says to get their hides back here before I feed them to

You say, 'Hail, Entricalla'

Your task 'Abandon All Hope' has been updated.

Entricalla says 'You must be looking for the dwarves...I'm afraid you might be too late. They were taken away some time ago. To the Cliknar hive I think.'

Investigate the hive for any patrol survivors 0/1 (Arthicrex)

Update Location: Your Location is 1445, 1200, 157 (midway up the ramp leading into the actual hive -- updates when you come across the caged dwarven NPC named Nurvin Dwalgrun).

You say, 'Hail, Mardan Howlinblade'

Your task 'Abandon All Hope' has been updated.

You've found out what happened to the lost patrol!

Mardan Howlinblade says 'Captured? Held in the Cliknar hive? This isn't possible! We are in no condition to help them right now as it is obviously a trap. I am afraid our brethren are lost. Thank you for your help.'

As a 85 necro i soloed this mission easily done. Only part that could be dificult would be the hive part. Lots of see invis mobs once inside.

I didn't have to clear at the Sporali camp and for the last part (The Hive) there was see invis in several spots on the way up so I had to clear (Paci pulls worked) but on the way down there seemed to be all kinds of weird spawn ahead and behind so I just used a Mage to COH the group out and then I ran back to get update, which just happened to update at the entrance to The Hive, so no need to do deal with the see invis again =)

A careful ranger who uses a bit of finesse (sneak and Flusterbolt) can do this solo without killing a single mob. It saves quite a bit of time.
