This group mission begins with Gihbra Artinguard in Volska's Husk. He is located at approximately -140, -165, -47. Be careful in this zone as there are no especially safe points, including the locations of task givers.

In order to request this task, you must first have completed each of Gihbra's five solo tasks.

You say, 'Hail, Gihbra Artinguard'

Gihbra Artinguard says 'Greetings overlander. I have something most urgent that I can use your [help] with. It is hard to imagine that so many have turned from Brell, but I can't think about that now. There is still much to do and, if you are [willing] to help, we can [slow] them down a bit. I'd do it myself if it weren't for these blasted [pests]! There is much to do, and it is all so very [important].'

You say, 'Important?'

Gihbra Artinguard says 'We cannot allow the Autarchians to gain control of the greken. This would not bode very well at all for those faithful to Brell. So we are left with no other [option].'

You say, 'What option?'

Gihbra Artinguard says 'The Autarchians and sessiloids harvesting the eggs must be killed. Furthermore, the [hatchlings] themselves must be destroyed. '

You say, 'The hatchlings?'

Gihbra Artinguard says 'However innocent in all this they might be, they are a danger to everyone in the Underfoot should the Autarchians succeed. Will you do this for me. . . For us? Will you put a [stop] to this. . . this. . . anarchy?!'

You say, 'We'll stop it!'

Gihbra Artinguard says 'Oh thank Brell! I only hope it is enough. Brell will not be pleased when he returns! Let us hope that if you are successful, he has someplace to return too! Let me know when you are [ready].'

You have been assigned the task 'Kill the Hatchlings'.

The Autarchians are trying to harvest the greken eggs. They cannot be allowed to succeed. The lack of combat experience among the followers of Brell means that should the Autarchians succeed in gaining control of any of the greken, the ramifications could be far reaching. Gihbra has asked you to see if you can kill the hatchlings, along with any sessiloids and Autarchians currently harvesting the eggs. It is important that all greken hatchlings are destroyed.

You say, 'Ready!'

You have entered Volska's Husk - Kill the Greken Hatchlings.

Kill 10 Autarchian reapers 0/10 (Volska's Husk)

Kill 10 sessiloid attendants 0/10 (Volska's Husk)

Kill 6 greken hatchlings 0/6 (Volska's Husk)

Kill the reapers and attendants (max hit ~8,500) throughout the nest area in order to spawn six greken hatchlings throughout these caves. Kill the hatchlings (max hit ~8,500) and then go hail the coldain Aremaas the Mouth in the central part of the zone, just outside the greken heart near the entrance to the nest.

Speak with Aremaas the Mouth 0/1 (Volska's Husk)

You say, 'Hail, Aremaas the Mouth'

Aremaas the Mouth says 'Greetings _____! Gihbra sent me to tell you that the Autarchians have already taken some of the hatchlings from the nest. They are heading for the lava pool!'

Kill 6 greken younglings 0/6 (Volska's Husk)

Kill 3 bellikos deceivers 0/3 (Volska's Husk)

Six greken younglings (max hit ~8,500) spawn in the south part of the zone. Once they're dead, three bellikos deceivers (max hit ~9,000) spawn in the same area.

Note: The task locks as the third bellikos deceiver dies.

Speak with Aremaas the Mouth 0/1 (Volska's Husk)

You say, 'Hail, Aremaas the Mouth'

Aremaas the Mouth says 'Well done! Let me know if you are ready to return [home.]'

See what reward you have been offered 0/1 (Volska's Husk)

An ornate chest spawns next to Aremaas inside the instance. Opening the chest completes this step and the task:

Defeating the Bellikos and killing the hatchlings will stop the Autarchians from using the greken in their plans. As long as they are not allowed to continue harvesting the eggs...

Known chest drops (1 item per task):
Autarchian Fistwraps
Autarchian Linked Leggings
Autarchian Robe

Crystalline Tear
Enforcer's Bow
Glowing Clasp of the Handmaiden

I've done this mission three times now trying to farm either Rose or the Enforcer. Got an aug all three times. /uggh. We ranger pull with snare, AE root and Flusterbolt all the mobs except the bellikos. For those our SK pulls using the "get over here" spell and then FD to drop extra agro. We also clear all of the lava golems to get them out of the way. This adds time to the mission but more mobs on a lesson burn is good.

Good exp grind mission. Just wish it's drops treated us better.
A ranger's life is truely to solo these worlds.

Ranger can pull bellikos also. With care, only 2 will come then use flusterbolt/cover tracks combo and split those. I've been molo'ing this for the AC aug but no luck after 3 complete runs. The extra brellium also comes in handy for 25 purity shards.

At the end of the mission, after hailing Aremaas for the second instance of the step "Speak to Aremaas the Mouth (0/1) Volska's Husk":

[Wed Jul 07 02:18:23 2010] Aremaas the Mouth says 'Well done! Let me know if you are ready to return [home.]'

[Wed Jul 07 02:18:23 2010] Your task 'Kill The Hatchlings' has been updated.

Then, a new step opens up:

"See what reward you have been offered (0/1) Volska's Husk"

The chest spawns next to Aremaas inside the instance. Opening the chest completes this step, and the following text appears:

[Wed Jul 07 02:18:26 2010] Your task 'Kill The Hatchlings' has been updated.

[Wed Jul 07 02:18:27 2010] Defeating the Bellikos and killing the hatchlings will stop the Autarchians from using the greken in their plans. As long as they are not allowed to continue harvesting the eggs...

The task is completed at this point.

No pre-requisites needed to request task

You actually do not need to have done any of Gihbra's solo tasks, to be able to request "Kill the Hatchlings". Anyone who has access to Volska's Husk can simply say "stop" to Gihbra, and he will assign this shared task, even if they have not done any of his solo quests before.

However, in order to legitimately learn that "stop" is the keyword necessary to trigger this task, one must do the five solo missions first. I am nearly done with the final mission in this series, and will submit a bunch of information on the tasks to have the text updated in the writeup.

The first 26 kills go fast, without much trouble.

Then Kill 6 greken younglings 0/6 (Volska's Husk) gets a little more difficult. The 3 by the lava are tricky to split, we used shaman push back AA, with CoH.

Then Kill 3 bellikos deceivers 0/3 (Volska's Husk) is a PITA. The bellikos have alot of HP's, and they SEE INVISO. They have a wide aggro range, and all the lava golems near by seemed to be linked. Pull 1, get 4 type of deal. We managed after several deaths to train the golems away and get the bellikos single. They can not be mez'ed, shaman pushed back, or any other trick we tried, other then good old CoH with train method.

GL, hope this helps. A good pull class, may make things much simpler, or if you want to clear all of, or some of the golems may help, but what fun is there in that. Grin.

We finished it with MAG, SHM, CLR, ENC + 2 mercs (DPS caster & CLR). Great challenge for us, earth pet tanked all.

Say "home" to Aremaas the Mouth and you will be ported back to the regular zone - in the middle of mobs bent on your destruction. Invis up and drop the task instead.

Tainted Chip of Hardened Clay dropped for us 4/22/10. The Belikos spawn close to the lava pool, the younglings spawn both next to the lava pool and somewhat spread among the lava golems in south area of zone.

The sessiloids will not assist the dwarves, but the dwarves will assist the sessiloids. When all 10 sessiloid attendants are dead, the 6 greken hatchlings spawn - the hatchlings spawn BEFORE all initial 20 mobs are dead - I would recommend leaving one dwarf and one sessiloid up until you are ready, or you're just adding more work for yourself: the dwarves, sessiloids and greken hatchlings all spawn in the same cave system (greken nest - the one with the eggs).

The greken in the task are all immune to stun.

The second type of greken (younglings) are immune to mez. The lava golems are also immune to mez. Lava golems will assist greken younglings.

Good advice.

For the waves after that, move to the caves further down towards the Convorteum zone portal (They are empty).

A good puller can can bring them in and you can even avoid killing golems for the achievement that way. And yes, the Bellikos can be seperated.
