This raid task begins with Captain Aleeth Zyrv (click for map image) in the Dark Reign camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Have high amiable faction with Dark Reign
- Have minimum 6 players; maximum 24
- Completion of all Tier 2 tasks and flags
- Completion of "Muddy the Waters"
- Completion of "Snowfoot Attack"
- Completion of "Knowledge is Power"

You say, 'Hail, Captain Aleeth Zyrv'

Captain Aleeth Zyrv says 'You must search the blackest recesses of your heart to serve us well, _____. Our endeavors are not for the frail.'

You have been assigned the task 'Trial of Perseverance'.

There is a wealth of information we wish to obtain from the creatures of Stillmoon Temple. Some of these documents may provide us with an avenue to bring ruin to the good of Norrath but all those who have tried to retrieve them have thus far failed. Do not disappoint us.

Task Steps

Touch the portal to Stillmoon Temple 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Approach Osashi 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)


Kill the goblin warlord 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

The Event

The entrance to the instance is a portal in the north-central part of the Broodlands (will be marked on your compass).

In the instanced zone, find Osashi close to the zone-in area and speak with him:

You say, 'Hail, Osashi'

Osashi says 'You have come at the goblins' behest? Very well. Perseverance is important to all, regardless of what you seek, be it wealth, knowledge, or power. This trial will show me just how committed you are to obtain your desires. When you being this trial, several goblins will wait near the gong and attempt to ring it after one minute. Do not let this happen and you shall prove yourself in this trial. Are you [ready] to begin?'

You say, 'We're ready!'

a Stillmoon goblin says 'Someone ring the bell! Summon help!'

Osashi immediately despawns and 4x "a Stillmoon goblin" appear around the bell next to him.

All goblins in this event must be kept aggro'd. If any goblin is left idle for any longer than 10-15 seconds, it "rings the bell". If you allow this to happen, then you get "an Ancient Stillmoon Guardian" instead of the goblin warlord. This represents a failure, and you'll have to repeat the event.

When you kill "a Stillmoon goblin", another one spawns in its place. These mobs are NOT auto-aggro, and due to line-of-sight, you'll have to keep watch to make sure none are left idle. These goblins hit for a max ~1,100 and are immune to mez and stun.

After a certain number of goblin kills, "a Stillmoon warlord" appears. This mob hits for a max ~1,600; AE rampages; and casts "Gelid Breath":

Gelid Breath: Targeted AE 20', Cold (-275) (2 minutes)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1250
2: Decrease Chance to Hit by 10% with 1H Blunt
3: Decrease Effective Casting Level by 12
4: Increase Curse Counter by 50

Completion & Loot

Kill the warlord to complete the task:

a Stillmoon warlord has been slain by _____!
a Stillmoon warlord's corpse mutters an ancient curse as you end his life.

Beyond the wildest dreams and plans of the creatures that call Stillmoon their home, you have defeated the Trial of Perseverance and bested them all!

It drops 6x "Goblin Warlord's Beads" (progression item) + 1 item from this loot table:

Bracer of the Warriors
Hoop of the Drakeborn
Icefloe Hammer
Stillmoon Silk Bracer

13 Ebon Crystals
1x "Dark Reign Token" (faction turn-in item)
