You say, 'Hail, Galeth Veredeth'
Galeth Veredeth says 'The [search] has taught us much. Now it is the [moment] to [stop] the enemy.'
You say, 'The moment?'
Galeth Veredeth watches a stick insect slowly crawling across his metal hand. 'Time moves so swiftly here... I forgot the urgency of the mortal. When I see the rain falling and the creatures creeping, or I hear the clicks of my clockwork gears, they all rush [together].
You say, 'Together?'
Galeth Veredeth says 'We spirits gather here for but a short time. The ones who have known nothing but the mortal cannot see how swiftly it travels, and they fear the vastness of time beyond their flesh. Lyirae feels this fear. She wishes to fight alone, thinking to [protect] me from the vastness.'
You say, 'Protect you?'
Galeth Veredeth says 'Each of us will pass from the river to the sea. Some quibble over time, but all mortals reach it in a blink. Lyirae should not protect me. She should look to the stream. Protect the flow, the current upon which all time is carried.' Galeth touches a leaf and allows the stick insect to crawl from his hand. 'Time is both infinite and short. Let us [stop] the enemy.'
You say, 'We'll stop them...'
Galeth Veredeth says 'The enemy forces amass on the beach. Any moment they will march into the jungle. _____, Lyirae fears the inevitable: the abandonment of flesh and the infinity of spirit. Let us give her no cause to fear for us. [Proceed] now. We will face them together.'
You have been assigned the task 'Fit for the New World'.
The Combine are trying to capture a large creature on the island. They are about to send reinforcements, and Galeth thinks this is the time to stop them.
You say, 'Let's proceed'
Galeth Veredeth says 'Indeed.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Thuliasaur Island.
Speak with Galeth 0/3 (Thuliasaur Island)
Hail him three times for the update, and then watch out because a group of mobs makes its way towards the area from the south (they do not see invisibility).
Galeth Veredeth says 'Lyirae could not wait. She told me to stay behind. She has followed a line of reinforcements pushing into the interior. Still my joints constrain me, and I could not keep up with her pace.'
Galeth Veredeth says 'Lyirae thought I would be easy prey with my current capabilities of locomotion.' Galeth wheezes through his steam vents, which sounds almost like laughter. 'She is kind for worrying about the fate of a spirit inside a metal body.''
Galeth Veredeth says 'She would have cause for sadness if we did not move south. Other groups of reinforcements have landed on the shore and begin to push north. We must cut them off.'
Defeat the landing party marching northward 0/13 (Thuliasaur Island)
Average difficulty mobs, but have a fair amount of hitpoints and are fairly close together. They are mezzable and rootable/snareable. If you aggro and fade "a squad leader" after having killed a few troops, they may respawn. This doesn't matter, though, as any 13 of these mobs will update and progress the task.
Upon killing the last one, you see:
Galeth Veredeth says 'We should find Lyirae. The soldiers are not the only ones deserving of reinforcements. She followed them to the northwest.'
Speak with Lyirae on the southern hill facing the western river branch 0/4 (Thuliasaur Island)
She is found along the western boundary of the raptor area (no raptors in the instanced version of the zone, but it's in the same area).
Lyirae Oakwynd shouts 'What are you doing here, Galeth? The rain -- you'll grind to a halt and get yourself killed!'
Galeth Veredeth shouts 'You forget I am a spirit of Growth. I cannot die like you imagine. This metal body...'
Lyirae Oakwynd fires another arrow through the rain, keeping the Combine squad pinned down. 'You're here now. I can see you, touch you, hear you. If you were far away and I could not see your fate, perhaps it would be different. But nothing will happen to you under my watch!'
Galeth Veredeth readies his sword. 'I could say the same. I will not let your life spill into the sea just yet. Keep them occupied.' Galeth rushes toward the Combine squad.
Lyirae Oakwynd shouts 'Galeth! Adventurers, help him!'
Galeth Veredeth's arm slows as he swings his sword. His joints grind and freeze as he turns to parry a strike.
Defeat the Combine squad 0/10 (Thuliasaur Island)
These mobs are of the same variety as previous.
Speak with Lyirae 0/3 (Thuliasaur Island)
Lyirae Oakwynd looks ruefully at Galeth. 'I told you this would happen...'
Galeth Veredeth manages to lower his arm a few inches. 'I should have a word with Ognit about the quality of his craftsmanship...'
Lyirae Oakwynd pours a small flask of plant oil onto Galeth's joints and tries to loosen them.
Speak with Galeth 0/3 (Thuliasaur Island)
Galeth Veredeth's arms and legs start to move more freely. 'I can keep going, but I don't know how much longer my body will be useful in this rain.'
Lyirae Oakwynd yells, 'Galeth, stay here! I don't want to see you destroyed today!' Lyirae runs further into the forest.
Galeth Veredeth says, 'Though my body slows I shall not abandon her.'
Move west, up the river to Lyirae 0/1 (Thuliasaur Island)
Lyirae Oakwynd frowns as she hears the clanking of Galeth's approach. 'He is going to get himself killed...'
Lyirae Oakwynd points to the group of nearby Combine. 'Do you see them slaughtering the creatures? What are they doing? Those creatures have done nothing... we must stop this!'
Defeat the Combine squad 0/11 (Thuliasaur Island)
Same as above. Upon the last kill, you see:
Galeth Veredeth points westward down the river. 'This is just the bait. There are older, larger things that lurk in the sea.'
Reach the clearing at the end of the river to the west 0/1 (Thuliasaur Island)
Speak with Galeth 0/10 (Thuliasaur Island)
Galeth Veredeth raises his hand to you. 'Hold and listen.'
Praetor Venatos shouts 'The stench of these creatures is enough to lure every fly from Odus! Una better arrive soon or she'll be late to supper!'
Una Lucem's eyes wander around the forest, adjusting to the dim light. She does not blink as the rain strikes her pupils. Her gaze comes to rest on the mound of corpses. 'Looks like the courtyard after training. But these have all their pieces.'
Una Lucem stares at Venatos. He looks at the ground. 'Where's the giant? Father said to fetch a giant.'
Galeth Veredeth keeps looking at the ground. 'It's sure to come soon... we killed so many... and the stench will surely attract the beast...'
Una Lucem cocks her head, still looking at Venatos. 'You didn't finish setting the plate.' With a swing of Una's sword, a shockwave fans out and cleaves the skin of the remaining dinosaurs.
Lyirae Oakwynd whispers to you and Galeth. 'She's a monster, just like the others!' Lyirae nocks an arrow and looses it at Una.
Una Lucem , without more than a glance, flashes her sword like lightning amid the raindrops. Lyirae's arrow falls in twain. Una's eyes stare into the forest's gloom, marking the arrow's genesis.
Lyirae Oakwynd silently springs to action, darting through the undergrowth without a word, running at Una Lucem.
Galeth Veredeth shouts, 'Lyirae!' Galeth clangs after her.
Speak with Una Lucem 0/9 (Thuliasaur Island)
TASK LOCKS HERE
Upon the ninth hail, be ready for a fight.
Una Lucem emits a blast of magic, throwing Galeth and Lyirae to the ground. Galeth's frame and leg joints crack.
Una Lucem looks at you impassively. 'You came to see me again. You must admire me.'
Praetor Venatos glances around as the ground begins to shake. 'The creature is coming!'
Una Lucem keeps looking at you. 'I see what father meant about weakness. The old races aren't as strong as I am. Their skin always burns off too quickly, or their limbs won't stay on.'
Praetor Venatos cries out. Tree limbs snap as a gigantic lizard crashes into the clearing. As it lands, it crushes Venatos and his troops.
Praetor Venatos died.
a vanguard died.
a razer died.
a scout died.
Una Lucem raises her head to look up at the lizard towering above her. 'This one looks stronger. It will please Father.' Una Lucem begins casting a spell.
Lyirae Oakwynd calls out weakly. 'No, you must stop her! The creature is innocent...'
Una Lucem turns her attention upon you. 'Yes? Why do you pester me? I am doing the good will of my father. He wants to bring perfection to the world. You don't want that? You don't want your children to have the strength of this creature? See how strong it is!'
Una Lucem releases a spell upon the creature. It glares at you hungrily.
Defeat the Thuliasaur 0/1 (Thuliasaur Island)
Thuliasaur summons from 100% health; sees through all forms of invisibility; hits for a max ~24,500; AE rampages; single-target rampages; and has an AE called "Massive Stomp":
Massive Stomp: PB AE 100', Magic (-975)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 60000
2: Stun (3.00 sec)
DPS it to 5% for the update.
See what happens to the Thuliasaur 0/1 (Thuliasaur Island)
Lyirae Oakwynd shouts 'No, don't kill it!'
Una Lucem touches her fingers to the symbol on her breastplate. 'Oh, this creature is weak. It will never please Father.' She outstretches her other arm and points two fingers at the lizard. She drops her fingers toward the ground.
For a moment, the lizard is lit by a faint blue glow before a pillar of magic streaks out of the sky and consumes it.
Lyirae Oakwynd cries out and covers her head as the magical flames destroy the lizard and singe the trees.
Una Lucem looks at you and blinks. 'I must meet Father's dark woman at the Dredge. You will come and watch me?' Una Lucem disappears in a pillar of light.
Speak with Lyirae 0/5 (Thuliasaur Island)
Hail her until the task completes. A chest also spawns at this time. The task is repeatable with a 6-hour lockout timer from the time of request.
Lyirae Oakwynd puts her hand over the rent running down the front of Galeth's frame. 'I won't add to the salt... I don't want to ruin your joints...' Lyirae brushes her cheeks, though the rain still falls.
Lyirae Oakwynd looks at Galeth's legs, which have broken off below the knee joints. 'I knew this would happen... I told you to wait. This is how it always ends...'
Galeth Veredeth's face remains expressionless as always. 'You know my metal feels no pain. And still my spirit lives. Take heart, Lyirae. We must go to Firiona. There is still time before we reach the sea.'
Lyirae Oakwynd picks up Galeth and bears his weight as best she can. She turns toward the beach. 'We will journey with you to Firiona, though...' Lyirae looks around at the burning stumps, the carcasses, and then the untouched jungle. 'I almost wish I could stay here -- remove myself from all the strife to come, all the death...'
Lyirae Oakwynd listens to Galeth speak as he rests on her back. 'As I said, there is still time. Our courses do not end on this island, in this river. We have a long way to go once we [leave] here. We should meet with Captain Sedgethwait on Brother Island and set sail together.
