This is a mini-raid mission (3-24 players) that begins with Pericolo L`Morte (click for map image) in the Dark Reign camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum Level 65
- Minimum "amiable" faction with the Dark Reign

When you hail her, you get a quest selection window pop-up, but this is only for her eight group missions. To see her two raid missions, say "see those" to her.

You say, 'Hail, Pericolo L`Morte'

Pericolo L`Morte says 'I have some jobs that require a greater force to accomplish, 18 or so. If you think you are up for the challenge you can [see those] as well.'

You say, 'Let me see those'

You have been assigned the task 'Circle of Drakes'.

It seems that the drake magi in the Nest have some plans that may interfere with our workings there. They are attempting to cast a spell. Though we do not know its purpose, we do know that their will is not our own. You must defeat the magi before they can form the circle of five and complete their spell.

Task Steps

Touch the portal to the Nest 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Eliminate the drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Eliminate the second wave of drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Eliminate the third wave of drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Eliminate the fourth wave of drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Eliminate the fifth wave of drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

The Event

The entrance is the dragon portal in the far northeastern part of the Broodlands.

Here, you'll need to kill five waves of Magus Drakes. The number of mobs in each wave increases as you progress through the event. The drakes will attempt to set up a circle in the center. Once a drake makes it to the center, it cannot be attacked. If five drakes make it to the center, the task fails.

The emote you'll see upon a wave spawn:

The flapping in the distance builds as the wind picks up.

The 'circle' is a nondescript area of land in the middle of the zone-in area. Mobs are called "drake magus" and can come from either the east (from across the bridge) or the west (from the tunnels leading to the rest of the zone).

For the first wave, you have to kill one mob. For the second wave, three mobs. For the third wave, three mobs. For the fourth wave, five mobs. And for the final wave, six mobs.

Each mob hits for a max ~1,100 and has ~60,000 hitpoints; "Lightning Cyclone":

Lightning Cyclone: Single Target, Magic (-17)
1: Cancel Magic (9)
2: Stun (3.00 sec)

Failure & Reset

The event fails if you let a fifth drake get to the center:

The first drake takes its place in the circle.

The second drake takes its place in the circle.

The third drake takes its place in the circle, you can feel the magic increasing around you.

The fourth drake takes its place in the circle, you can feel their spell is nearing its end.

As the final drake takes its place in the circle the ground trembles beneath your feet and energy shoots into the sky.

The task ends, and you are kicked out of the zone.

Completion & Loot

Upon completion, you see:

As the magic of the drakes fails you see an object appear at the center of their circle.

Excellent. We will examine the remains of the focus, no doubt there is potent magic contained within.

A chest spawns in the central area, containing one item from this loot table:

Cape of Dragon Scales
Disc of the Dragon Kind
Necklace of Grimspirit Beads
Ore of the Nest

Task Rewards:
8 Ebon Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Dark Reign Token" (faction turn-in item)
