This shared task (1-6 players) is the third in a series of three. It begins with Jessup Stormwind (click for map image) in Tempest Temple. He is located at -340, -280, -156 (on the elevated island in the southeastern part of the zone).
Pre-Requisites for Requesting:
- Completed "Coral Crushers"
- Completed "So Many Serpents"
Say "monstrosity" to request the task.
At the end of the previous task, you saw:
Jessup Stormwind carefully peers through the green liquid as he taps lightly on the side of the glass vial. 'A potent growth enchantment has been cast on this coral for certain, _____. They seem to have extracted all the nutrients of the coral into this liquid.' He pauses from his study of the vial to look at you before continuing, 'You say the serpents came to aid the nagas when you attacked them? This must be the reason for this new 'alliance' of sorts. This can't be the end game though. The serpents, though larger still do not pose a significant threat to the rest of the islands' inhabitants. Unless of course there's some kind of even bigger [monstrosity] that they've been feeding?'
You say, 'What monstrosity?'
Jessup Stormwind says 'The vials of infused coral essence must serve some higher purpose. Here, take this collection of vials and place them on the ring of druidic runes on the beach near the giant nautilus shell. The runes will amplify the scent of the coral and draw out whatever creatures the nagas are controlling with it. Obviously you should be ready for anything. If there's something out there in deeper water that they've been cajoling with it's likely to be large.'
You receive "Coral Extract Vial Bundle".
You have been assigned the task 'Bigger Fish'.
Jessup Stormwind believes that the nagas have been growing a much larger sea serpent off in the depths beyond the island. Use the infused coral vials to tempt it towards the island and survive the assault.
Place the infused vials on the druid circle 0/1 (Tempest Temple)
TASK LOCKS HERE
An object called "a druid circle" (click for map image) is found on the southwestern part of the island.
Here, you'll need to kill off 40-50 serpents that approach the druid circle two at a time (waves are separated in intervals beginning slowly, then building up more frequently). You'll need a fair amount of DPS to deal with this - likely a full group of active players. A mezzer helps.
When ready, turn in the "Coral Extract Vial Bundle" to the druid circle.
a druid circle begins to glow softly as you set the vials down in the circle. It isn't long before you begin to hear muffled hissing creeping towards you over the droning sounds of the wind and waves.
Survive the serpent assault 0/1 (Tempest Temple)
Shortly after the event is started, your first two mobs arrive: 2x "an enraged serpent". Then another two follow. And then more. And more. And a lot more.
Two known mob types:
- "an enraged serpent" (lower-than-average health & max hit; mezzable/stunnable)
- "a hungry serpent" (normal health & max hit for the base zone population; mezzable/stunnable)
At some point, you'll get a named (Falindar), which is tougher. Once Falindar appears, focus your DPS on it because the serpent adds keep spawning. Everything despawns once Falindar dies.
Emotes you'll see signaling the spawn of more mobs:
The waves hitting the beach swell as several larger serpents approach.
A louder cacophony of shrieks rumbles across the water.
If any mobs are left idle for any longer than about 60 seconds, the event despawns and you have to start over.
If you fail it, you can get a new vial bundle by speaking with Jessup Stormwind again.
Jessup Stormwind says 'Be more careful this time, _____. There aren't many vials left.'
Speak with Jessup Stormwind 0/1 (Tempest Temple)
This task is repeatable with a 6-hour lockout timer from the time of request.
