This group mission begins with Noxhil V`Sek (click for map image) in Neriak Fourth Gate.
Pre-Requisites for Requesting:
- Level 95
- Completed "The Missing Scroll"
- Completed "Fourth Gate Investigation"
- Completed "Cautious Recruitment"
- Completed "Houses of Thex" (group mission)
- Must be illusioned as a Dark Elf
Steps & Summary
- Say "band" to request the task and "meet" to zone in.
Gain entry to the library 0/1 (Neriak Fourth Gate)
Obtain the Scroll of G'Han 0/1 (Neriak Fourth Gate)
Open the chest 0/1 (Neriak Fourth Gate)
- Note: The NPCs Kavi and Xavier have beneficial auras that mitigate spell and melee damage, so it's in your interest to keep them alive (they can be buffed and healed). (There is an achievement for allowing them to die, however.)
- Inside the instance, say "ready" to Prince Tarant Thex to begin the event.
- After a short delay, two mobs spawn ("a spiteful lich" and "a spiteful shade").
--- "a spiteful lich" has a damage aura around it and is snareable/mezzable.
--- "a spiteful shade" casts a 10k spell damage shield when low in health (is mezzable).
- There a minimum number of mobs that must be killed to progress the task, and until you meet that requirement, you'll always have at least two mobs up at a time.
- Mobs called "a spiteful specter" spawn randomly upon lich and shade deaths. These also must be killed.
- Specters will focus their DPS on the friendly NPCs (Kavi and Xavier).
- Once you've completed this step, you'll have a short break.
- Meet Prince Tarant Thex in the upper floor of the library.
- A script unfolds, and then he goes aggro along with two Dreadguard adds.
- The Prince summons two Dreadguard adds every 20% health.
- All adds must die before the event can be completed.
- Dreadguard swordsmen are charmable.
- Dreadguard conjurors cast AE damage spells.
- Kill all adds and bring the Prince to 3% health for the win.
Requesting the Task
You say, 'Hail, Noxhil V`Sek'
Noxhil V`Sek says 'The prince has informed me that the time is nigh for infiltrating the library. I will leave it up to you whether to proceed with a small [band] of friends or a large [force]. Otherwise, you may recruit a [group] for infiltrating the library or let me know if you are [interested] in keeping the scroll out of the hands of the King and Queen.'
You say, 'I have a small band'
Noxhil V`Sek says 'Let us hope you are up to the task. I will arrange for you to [meet] with Prince Tarant when you are ready.'
You have been assigned the task 'Hate Rising'.
The prince has agreed to help you gain entry to the library and help you acquire the Scroll of G'Han. He does not wish either the king or queen to have it as it would upset the balance of power in Neriak.
You say, 'We'll meet him there'
Noxhil V`Sek says 'Success unto you, _____.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Neriak - Fourth Gate.
PHASE ONE: Triggering the Event
Speak with Prince Tarant Thex to begin the event ("ready"). He and his two cohorts will move to the library door, then two adds will spawn (1x "a spiteful lich" + 1x "a spiteful shade").
You say, 'Hail, Prince Tarant Thex'
Prince Tarant Thex says, in Dark Elvish, 'I have managed to obtain the key to the library, though its caretakers will likely discover it missing soon. I know not what we will find inside so be prepared for anything. Let me know when you are [ready] to enter. You may also [leave] if you are too cowardly to continue.'
You say, 'Ready!'
Prince Tarant Thex says, in Dark Elvish, 'Very well. Let us proceed.'
The three NPCs path up to the library entrance, at which point you see:
Prince Tarant Thex leaps backwards as he shouts 'Get back, there's a spell on it!'
PHASE ONE: The Spiteful Undead
"a spiteful lich" is snareable and mezzable. It has an aura around it called "Lich Touch":
Lich Touch: Single Target, Cold (-650)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 6500
It also casts "Icy Rain":
Icy Rain: Targeted AE 30', Cold (-999)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 15000
"a spiteful shade" is mezzable. It procs "Shade Touch":
Shade Touch: Single Target, Cold (-999)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 1500
When low in health, they cast "Shield of Spite" on themselves:
Shield of Spite: Self 0', Unresistable (-650)
1: Spell Damage Shield (10158)
Occasionally, as you kill the above mobs, you'll get "a spiteful specter" spawn. These mobs focus their DPS on Kavi and Xavier, so if you're keeping them alive, be sure to pay attention to their health while a specter is up. The specters don't cast any AEs.
Kill a certain amount of "spiteful" mobs to progress the task.
Prince Tarant Thex mutters to himself 'Nothing is ever easy when mother is involved.' He surveys the scene around him and says 'We must must move quickly now. I can give you a minute to rest but no more.'
PHASE TWO: Encounter in the Library
Next, find Prince Tarant Thex upstairs. A script will unfold:
Prince Tarant Thex shouts, in Dark Elvish, 'This is it!'
Prince Tarant Thex says, in Dark Elvish, 'And now that I have it, you are no longer necessary.'
Prince Tarant Thex shouts, in Dark Elvish, 'Dreadguards!'
Two Dreadguards enter the area (not aggro yet).
Prince Tarant Thex smiles as he says 'You see, I had no intention of allowing you to possess the scroll as I have already promised it to my love. Once I have silenced you, I will deliver it to her.'
Prince Tarant Thex shouts, in Dark Elvish, 'Dreadguards, forward!'
All three mobs are now aggro.
"Dreadguard conjuror" casts two AEs:
Molten Beam: Area Hatelist 30', Fire (-999)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 15000
Molten Rain: Targeted AE 30', Fire (-999)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 15000
"Dreadguard swordsman" casts no spells.
The Prince summons two additional Dreadguard adds (one of each type) every 20% health. All adds have to be killed before Prince Tarant Thex can be defeated.
Once all adds are dead and the Prince reaches 3% health, you've won the event.
The Prince falls to the ground, seemingly unconscious, and Lanys T`Vyl appears...
Lanys T`Vyl steps out from the shadows.
Lanys T`Vyl says, in Dark Elvish, 'It looks like I arrived just in time to save you.'
Lanys T`Vyl quickly searches the prince.
Lanys T`Vyl says in a sultry, sarcastic tone, 'I'll be taking that, my prince.'
Lanys T`Vyl looks up from the wounded prince toward your party, 'As for the rest of you, I shall leave you with these paltry rewards. After all, you've earned them. Despite the fact that you were driven here by the ramblings of a madman, your assistance in obtaining the scroll has proven invaluable.'
Lanys T`Vyl speaks with uncharacteristic concern, 'You're like mad dogs, powerful but aimless. So eager to serve at the hand of any master that offers you your next meal. You do realize that if that madman gets his hands on this scroll it will mean the end of Norrath, don't you?'
Lanys T`Vyl says, in Dark Elvish, 'I don't often waste my sincerities on your lot, but I offer you this truth, it is imperative that this treasure not fall into the hands of the forsaken. I suggest you reflect upon your arrangement with Zebuxoruk and really question where your loyalties lie.'
Lanys T`Vyl gates out of the library while the Prince remains unconscious...
