Call of the Forsaken Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor

This was a pre-launch event ahead of the "Tower of Rot" release (an extension to the storyline involving the Call of the Forsaken expansion).

It was available from Saturday, May 17, 2014, through to Monday, July 7, 2014, and is no longer in game.

This is a shared task (unlimited timer) that begins with Erron Ailspoc in the Dead Hills /loc -70, 1090, 142. This is in the previously blocked area leading to the tower in the southwestern part of the zone.

You say, 'Hail, Erron Ailspoc'

Erron Ailspoc says 'Hail, hero. I'm glad you're here. This place just keeps getting scarier. A little while ago one of those huge skeletons broke down the barrier while fighting with some sort of massive floating eyeball thing. I tried to explore further up the path, but I was just unable to get very far. If you manage greater success than I did, perhaps you could take some [samples] of the monsters up there?'

You say, 'Some samples?'

Erron Ailspoc says 'Gahlith needs to know if these creatures have the same magical residue as those near the city. I can send the samples back to him, if you can just gather them for me. It's very dangerous, but I'm sure a great hero like you can [do it].'

You say, 'I'll do it'

Erron Ailspoc says 'Thank you! I wish you luck.'

You have been assigned the task 'Beyond the Barrier'.

Erron Ailspoc has asked you to recover samples from the newly appearing monsters in the Dead Hills beyond the old barriers.

Kill the monsters that are new to the area and bring back samples 0/10 (Dead Hills)

Kill Ethernere mobs (orafiks, geheins, tiruns, skirths, etc.) in the area until you've gotten 10 updates. The update rate seems to be at around 30-40% (no actual items involved).

With the exception of the giant-sized mobs in the area (which hit for a max ~27,000), these mobs hit for a max ~15,000 and are mezzable, rootable, and snareable. They summon when damaged and have a fast respawn timer (2-3 minutes).

Speak with Erron Ailspoc 0/1 (Dead Hills)

75 platinum

This task is repeatable with a 10-hour lockout timer from the time of request.

Second and third involved killing 30 mobs, and this one is no different.. except I've killed over a dozen and not yet gotten an update.

By the time I'll finish this task I'll have killed all of them and wiped them from existence, and the NPC will say "oh, thanks you helped a little."
