You say, 'Hail, Adana Baxter'

Adana Baxter says 'Hey, can't you see I'm busy? Wait a minute. Aren't you _____? Oh, I've heard of you. Listen, I could use a [hand]. I'm working for the Qeynos government.'

You say, 'A hand?'

Adana Baxter says 'Right. You see this Ethernere business? Well, it looks like it's affecting the Tower of Rot. Yes, that Tower. And it appears that the long lost should-be-dead Kyle Bayle is finally emerging from that decaying, festering eyesore. Things are moving quickly here, and if we don't stop him, who knows what would happen next? I was just trying to figure out a way to do it, and then a hero walks right up to me. Convenient, that. So, what do you think? You'll help stop that old Bayle, right? Did you want to bring a small [group] to take care of him quickly or a larger [raid] force to meet those monsters head on?'

You say, 'I have a raid'

Adana Baxter says 'A little risky, but you're still alive so far so I guess you know what you're doing. Are you [ready]?'

You say, 'Ready!'

Adana Baxter says 'This way.'

You have entered The Dead Hills.


- Clear undead mobs from the area (a handful of "a royal _____" in the area - relatively simple mobs).

- Say "work" to Kyle Bayle to trigger the event, making the Captain + 3 Sergeants auto-aggro.

- Kill Sergeant Grady, Sergeant Brenn, Sergeant Larenzo, and Captain Kanteer to complete the event.
--- Sergeant Grady casts an AE root + melee slow.
--- Sergeant Brenn procs a nuke for 75,000 dmg on his target.
--- Sergeant Larenzo mitigates incoming melee damage by 50% and is extremely spell-resistant.
--- Captain Kanteer spawns 3 adds every 10% health and every 2 minutes; casts Brenn's nuke; and uses Larenzo's buff.

Triggering the Event

On the other side of the tower, you find Kyle Bayle, his Captain, and three Sergeants. Say "work" to Kyle Bayle to make them all aggro.

You say, 'Hail, Kyle Bayle'

Kyle Bayle speaks with determination, 'Look around you, _____. The [Tower] lives and breathes, built with the will of my army and the people of Qeynos.'

You say, 'What about this tower?'

Kyle Bayle says 'We labor and toil, our work never finished. Yet here you stand before me, wasting precious time with your idle chatter.' If you aren't here to [work], then we'll use your bones the build the tower!'

You say, 'Your work will stop!'

Kyle Bayle says 'The delusional ghost of Kyle Bayle calls out to his sergeants, 'Larenzo! Grady! Brenn! We have a visitor who has offered up their blood and bones to help build our tower!''

At this time, the Captain and all three Sergeants attack. Kyle Bayle remains non-aggro.

Event Mechanics

- Event mobs can be pulled anywhere in the event area; they have no leash range.
- There are no balance requirements.
- The Sergeants can be killed in any order.
- The Captain cannot be killed until all three Sergeants have been killed.
- None of the mobs summon until damaged below 98%.
- The Sergeants and Captain are immune to all forms of crowd control (but are kiteable).
- The royal guard adds are immune to stuns and roots. Soldiers are mezzable; others are not.
- All of the royal guard adds are charmable.

Failure & Reset

If the Captain or any of the Sergeants are left idle for a short period of time, the event does a full reset:

Kyle Bayle's troops have had time to regroup. You have failed.

Event Completion

Kill the three Sergeants and Captain Kanteer to complete the event. Note that the royal undead adds do NOT despawn upon the event's completion.

Captain Kanteer has been slain by _____!

If you stand against me, you stand against Qeynos. Progress cannot be stopped, my friend. This Tower will be completed, and neither you nor the others will stop us.

Kyle Bayle disappears into the tower, and a chest appears at Adana Baxter's location near the zone-in.


NOTE: In addition to chest loot, everyone in the zone receives 20x "Medal of Heroism" (used as an alternative way obtain raid drops, from Requisitioner Sheon (map image), the Tier 1 raid vendor in the northwestern Qeynos camp of the Ethernere Tainted West Karana).
