|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is a group progression mission (3-6 players) that begins with Gardener Aeriht in the Grounds (just north of the Well entrance in the southern part of the zone).
In order to request this task, you must have previously completed Giladan the Botanist's three solo tasks (not the kill tasks) as well as the Tier 1 group progression missions "Fall of the Tae Ew" and "Welcome to My Nightmare".
You say, 'Hail, Gardener Aeriht'
Gardener Aeriht says 'So, you are the one that has been helping that botanist fellow. I have heard of you! Making a mess of things around here! Sure, this place is dangerous, but that is just how I like it! It keeps out the riff raff! Now, you have gone and upset the balance of things around here. But since you like helping so much, perhaps you can [help] me?'
You say, 'What do you want my help for?'
Gardener Aeriht says 'The place is in turmoil! And because of you, they are planning an uprising! That, I cannot have! You must put a [stop] to them before they gain any more momentum.'
You say, 'I will stop them'
Gardener Aeriht says 'There is also something I need from you while you are ending this revolt. I seemed to have lost my book. But with the natives so aggravated, they have torn it into three pieces and each is keeping a piece. You will get these pieces back. That is what you are good for anyway, is it not? Let me know when you are ready, so that we can proceed.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Gardener'.
Blaming you for the current state of unrest here in the garden, Aeriht wants you to end the uprising of certain creatures, while also retrieving his book that is being held by them.
You say, 'Ready!'
Gardener Aeriht says 'Be careful! And do not forget the pieces of the book!'
Recon the bixie's forces in the hive 0/1 (The Grounds)
Recon the peponnite's forces in the patch 0/1 (The Grounds)
Recon the treant's forces in the orchard 0/1 (The Grounds)
The bixies are in the south. The patch is in the north. The treants are in the northwest. These steps update just outside the areas for each of the above.
Report to Aeriht about all three forces 0/1 (The Grounds)
You say, 'Hail, Gardener Aeriht'
Gardener Aeriht says 'Excellent! I mean... very well. They will need to be dealt with immediately before they can grow in numbers.'
Gardener Aeriht says 'The garden creatures are rising up against me! I must have your assistance!'
Commence attack on the bixie hive 0/8 (The Grounds)
Retrieve a piece of Aeriht's book from the bixie who stole it 0/1 (The Grounds)
Kill any eight of the bixies and loot part of the book from their corpses. Repeat this process for the peponnites and the treants.
Target mobs in this task hit for a max ~6,500. All kill targets see invisibility and are in close proximity to each other (you'll have 2-3 per pull without a splitter). Peponnites, bixies, and treants are mezzable. The peponnites can flurry. Some of the Thule Servants are mezzable while some may be immune.
Commence attack on the peponnite's patch 0/8 (The Grounds)
Retrieve a piece of Aeriht's book from the Protector of the Patch who stole it 0/1 (The Grounds)
Commence attack on the treant's orchard 0/8 (The Grounds)
Retrieve a piece of Aeriht's book from the Bulwark of the Orchard who stole it 0/1 (The Grounds)
Deliver the pieces of the book to Aeriht 0/1 (The Grounds)
Gardener Aeriht says 'I see now why the botanist relied on you so much. This is most excellent! I just need one more thing from you. I have just discovered that one of those irritating servants has the binding to my book. You will need to retrieve it.'
Retrieve the binding from the Thule servants 0/1 (The Grounds)
Numerous Thule Servants can be found in the western part of the zone (the area leading the House of Thule zone-in).
Deliver the book binding to Aeriht 0/1 (The Grounds)
Gardener Aeriht says 'Finally! I have it! All I have ever been was a stinking gardener! But no more! Now, you will see the power of Aeriht!'
He respawns as Deceiver Aeriht and attacks immediately along with a few "Aerihts Construct". Deceiver Aeriht hits for a max ~8,500. He is slowable, but not rootable/snareable. The constructs hit for a little less and are rootable/snareable. There is an achievement associated with leaving them alive.
Note: You can have someone with FD or fade do the turn-in and then single-pull Aeriht from a distance.
Kill Deceiver Aeriht 0/1 (The Grounds)
After this, the task locks.
4 Aeriht's Constructs spawn with Aeriht. They are not mezzable.
