Governor Parrin Wenst says, in Alaran, 'Oh no! I'm afraid we can't do anything to High Priest Vyers yet. There is still a lot of work to do. Please talk to myself, Ain Kavus, and Guard Captain Reles if you'd like to help with the initial operations first.'

With pre-requisites, you'll see:

Governor Parrin Wenst says, in Alaran, 'Oh, yes! Thanks to all your hard sork, aqd the others t o, wuard Captain Reles told me that we are planbing to defeat High priest Vyers. If yoa are ready to [move], I will tell ali to set up the meeting here in the office.'

You say, 'Hail, High Priest Vyers Rinad'

High Priest Vyers Rinad says, in Alaran, 'Ah, _____. I was wondering when you were going to show up. Do you mind if I ask you a [question]?'

You say, 'What's your question?'

High Priest Vyers Rinad says, in Alaran, 'Why are you doing this? [Fame]? [Wealth]? [Excitement]? A misplaced sense of [justice]? Do you think it is [funny]? Or do you just enjoy [meddling] in other people's business? Tell me.'

How you respond to him has no bearing on the task, but whatever you say will trigger the spawn of a named and 15-20 mobs.

If you're going into Rubak Oseka to stop Oseka from using this thing you call a Cazic-Thule, we wish you the best of luck. You will always be welcome in Sarith. It'll take us some time to clean out the rest of the City of Bronze soldiers and others that serve the Orator, but now it's no longer an impossibility.'

the boss will only make clones when under 25%

careful not to kill him! he heals himself occasionally, so that helps.
Most annoying mission for me

This mission gave me lots of problems, but not because the mobs were tough.....

First two tries I failed without even knowing why, at the step when you fight all the mobs outside city hall. The issue was I needed to be taking out the named first, but the steps are messed up, I never got the step saying to kill him (i.e. it never shows me that step). It just says to kill 15 mobs, so I was working my way through them, and then I'd see the failure message and get booted. You have to take the named guy out first or he kills the friendly mobs.

On the third try, I did focus on him, and survived the steps. Again, I got the step completed popup when I killed him, but I never got the "kill him" step in the quest log.

When I got to the docks, I knew to kill the Oracle first, even though I hadn't gotten the step yet, and never did see it, same thing.

Then the third try at the mission failed at the sharks when the server crashed, LOL!

Next day, first try, same failure outside city hall, even though I took out the named first. No clue.

Next (5th overall try), got back to the sharks. Took out the first one, and.... no credit in the quest log. No longer on track, not showing up in agro, no idea. Killed other two sharks, quest log just showed 2 out of 3. Couldn't get the priest to give the next step. Dropped it. On to try #6.

And that one, the stars must have lined up, everything worked.

Seriously, do this one once to check the boxes for achievements, and then don't ever do it again! :)

The commander was hitting me for a max of 12k on a 95 shadow knight. And Leveth the Shark king will keep spawning adds if you kill his adds and leave him alive for too long.
If you can manage to kill Vyers at the end quick enough, he won't spawn and clones. I killed him in less than 20 seconds and he only spawned the two Hadal. Hope this helps:)

Buff the rebels outside the Governor's mansion. Haste is good. Hail the High priest and the adds spawn. Target the Commander and hit your discs and waste him. The rebels keep him and other others occupied. Even with max burn, I couldn't peel him off. After the adds are dead , move to him, he's behind the benches in front of you...hail him again.... and he ports to the docks. The rebels begin to walk there ..slowly. Wait for them. I had 4 normal and the 3 named rebels left on my side after the adds were killed. Hasting them really does help this go faster. Hail him again and the Hadal adds pop behind you and they get taken care of. Hang a left, down the dock, go up the plank on the ship amd hail the high priest again, he's up top. Then run out to the shell temple and hail him again. He'll call the sharks and you kill them. On shark king I just mez the two adds, then when he's dead blur them. I don't burn discs on the sharks since you're going to the last guy, pretty soon after. After sharks are dead take your group to the very top of the temple, 'cuz when you hail him, he depsawns and appears up top. He casts the spells listed above... and Force of Oseka .. which is a 4 second stun...and really, really annoying if he knocks you off and you are trying to run up teh spiral again.. I swear it's got knockback because inevitablyt, he'll throw chanter or necro (or both) off the ledge and they have to run back up again. Maybe beter to just have tank up there to agro him, initially. I've only done it twice, so still working out the kinks. He'll summon tank back if he falls, once he has agro. I just mez the adds and pound him. I do this with 3 merc clerics, 1 set to balanced and two set to reactive and have never died on him. I have died on that King Shark tho. Had a spike.. oh well. If you save King shark for last, you get a achievement, Hail to the Shark King. There's another achievement for letting high priest make 5 clones before you kill him.

Be warned .. those clones casts the same nasty spells the original does.

Pull the shark king deep, like way deep. We fought him 10 or 15 ft below the surface and at 20 percent he transported above the surface and wiped the group. After that he was stuck in the Shell, you couldnt hit him but he could summon you and was summoning helpers every minute or so (He summons when slow is landed fyi).

Second Time i ran this I killed the King Shark first to make sure there were no instance bugs. Big mistake. The other two sharks became immune to slow. I tashed and Maloed with the enchanter shaman had Apathy II loaded on the Merc tank none of these landed on the other two sharks.

The order I recommend killing
Nhron - Desaln - King (Nhron has a cleave that will hit the whole group and a knock back, best to take him out normal strength).

The King with the other two dead was no big deal bring a mezzer and you should be able to handle him (92 Merc tank with a 93 Cleric merc and shaman were all that was needed to heal and I didnt spot heal all that much).

Final battle. Position the group on top with the backs against the wall before the hail. Cast Group Lev if you have it (Note Enchanter group lev may cause issues with the previous step! I Noticed that it pulled me up gradually out of the water when fighting the sharks). Hail the guy he pops and gives you a couple of seconds up top before he rushes. Just keep the groups backs to the wall and I never got punted off. When He spawned his first CLone he went out to the edge but the mercs killed him easily while I kept the adds mezzed. Just keep in mind the advice about the King pull him low or he will bug and you will either see loading please wait ... or if you can kill the instance before he summons everyone you can reset it. After I got this down takes 30 mins.

I fight him mounted now. Makes a huge difference. I won't say it makes it trivial, but it makes it at least 50 percent easier. You don't get pushed near as bad.

92 Ranger, 91 Bard, and 91 Magician attempted this by maneuvering the goodies in the water to attack the sharks. It worked well getting them in they stayed in and they did attack the sharks. On the downsize we didn't get task updates since they killed them and we did not even tho we assisted. Could not get mobs to re-spawn so we could go again had to drop task.

Be careful on the shark named, make sure you are ready before you begin, because if you fail, they can strangely reset, and be stuck in an above-water/under-water graphics bug, making them unable to be harmed by melee.
