This quest is obtained from Kerath Punox in Sul Vius: Demiplane of Life.


It seems that there may be up to six different versions of this task -and seem to be related to progression for requesting heroic adventures in Crypt of Sul.

The assignments vary, but boil down to:

1) Kill commanders, destroy ballistas
2) Kill mobs, destroy weapon crates, kill more mobs
3) Kill mobs, kill commanders
4) Kill mobs, kill couriers, kill more mobs
5) Kill mobs, kill ballistas, kill commanders (listed above)
6) Kill mobs, destroy weapon racks

One note about the tasks involving killing inanimate objects (weapon crates, ballista, weapon racks, etc): The mobs guarding any one of these objects seem to be aggro-linked. They can be snared, haven't checked for root.

You say, 'Hail, Kerath Punox'

Kerath Punox says 'Ah, yes. My brother has spoken of you, Tarvas. I'm sure he told you what our business is, so I won't bother you with that. All I want to know is whether you are interested in some [private] work, you and a few friends. Or are you one of those folks that prefers a [larger endeavor]?'

You say, 'private'

Kerath Punox says 'It is good to see you again, Tarvas. We appreciate that you have taken up the [job] [opportunities] we have found [for you]. Things appear to be coming to a head, and your assistance is desired once again. My contact, it seems, was impressed with your skills and, in their desperation, has asked for you specifically. This offers both of us a [chance] to earn a bit more than usual.'

You say, 'job'

Kerath Punox says 'A good choice. I am uncertain exactly what it is that they are in need of. There will be a list of some sort available to you once you arrive. I know that is very little information, but it seems that my contacts only want you to know what they desire. For some reason they do not trust me. Under that condition, are you [still interested]?'

You say, 'still interested'

Kerath Punox says 'Well chosen. You know the way to the Plane of Health, I'm sure. Be warned, things have changed some since you last passed that way.'

Zone in by zoning into Plane of Heath from either Sul or PoT.




Objective Instructions:

Step #1

  1. Fight your way through the invaders 0/8 (The Plane of Health)

    Task Window Says: Fight your way through the invaders from Decay.

    Several groups of invaders are right to the east of the zone in.


    Step #2
  2. Destroy the ballistas being used against the Plane of Health 0/5 (The Plane of Health)

    Task Window Says: Destroy the ballistas in the area.

    Fight your way to the north west, ballista's are clustered around the zone in hut to Sul Vius. Everything sees invis and IVU. Each ballista has two to three mobs around it. The ballista themselves are immune to spells. There are six all together.


    Step #3
  3. Kill the commanders directing the attack upon the Plane of Health (0/5) (The Plane of Health)

    Task Window Says: Head through the gateway, and kill the commanders in the area who are leading the attack.

    There is one commander and two adds. They are not linked and can be mezzed. No need to kill them to get the updates.

    Tasks locks after the completion of the that step. The name or PH (a bubonian wartail) spawns along with the collectibles.


    Step #4
  4. Speak to Lashun Novashine 0/1 (The Plane of Health)

    Task Window Says: Speak to Lashun Novashine within the outpost.

    Hail him to get the update. He says nothing. Located at north western gate (/loc 2231, -954).


    Step #5
  5. Open the chest 0/1 (The Plane of Health)

That step ends the task. You get a pop up for the Lesser Health Spirit collectible. In the chest was a Greater Essence of Life and a Strifetorn Faceguard.

You say, 'private'

Kerath Punox says 'Ah, you again. I appreciate your help with that other [job]. It seems that a bit of a war is breaking out. When that happens there is always a small bit of profit to be made in hooking up the right parties with those that need them. You are just such a party. If a fight doesn't scare you, then I may have something [for you] to do.'

You say, 'job'

Kerath Punox says 'A good choice. I am uncertain exactly what it is that they are in need of. There will be a list of some sort available to you once you arrive.

    - Virulent brutes have lots of hp

This has been mentioned before, but here are the details.

Kill the skirmishers advancing upon your position 0/5
they surround the gazebo

Destroy the enemy's supplies 0/4 (Plane of Health)
Down the path, in the valley, you'll find 6 chests guarded by 2 or 3 mobs each. You don't have to kill the mobs, just destroy the supplies

Kill the skirmishers advancing upon your position 0/5
they respawn and surround the gazebo again

Four points of shining light catch your eye.
A formidable foe approaches in the distance. Find it to challenge it.

Vomitous - a rare creature - scowls at you, ready to attack -- it appears to be quite formidable. (Lvl: 109)

As of 3/14/2021 you do have to kill the mobs guarding the chests. Attacking the chest aggros them.

The enemy's supplies are in chests. And yes they have mobs near them you have to kill first on this step:

Destroy the enemy's supplies 0/6 (Plane of Health)

However I have never seen any enemy's near the final step where it tells you to open the chest.

If this is something new then it possible needs to be bug reported.

I received the daily hotzone quest from Clayton Teek for this, when I went to start the HA, the NPC stated something like:
"Perhaps you should speak with Quellious in the Plane of Tranquility."

I completed the only quest Quellious offers (note, use invis vs. undead to avoid getting attacked by a lvl 106 an honored resident),and went back to this NPC . This time she said:
"Perhaps you should speak with Neelo Leafwind in the Plane of Health."

I then completed Seal of Approval from Neelo Leafwind, went back to the NPC, and she said:
"Perhaps you should speak with Kerath Punox in Sul Vius about a job."

At this point I'm just going to skip this HA and wait for a more straightforward daily quest.

If you get the 'destroy ballistas' task, I did NOT find them in the north east, but the north west - clustered around the zone in hut to Sul Vius.
No chest

Upon completing the steps...
1. Kill the skirmishers advancing upon your position
2. Destroy the enemies supplies
3. Kill the skirmishers advancing upon your position
4. Open the chest.

Step 4 couldn't be completed. As soon as I finished step 3, Putrid Brute spawned on my group and auto agroed. He hit for max 55k, he rampaged, and he enraged. My group of lvl 101's couldn't tank it and we died. When we revisited the instance, there was no chest to be found. I ran around the entire zone using tab targeting, and also used "/target a chest" around the putrid brute and the zone in. The chest also did not show up on find. So I stayed up to 4am and completed it a second time.

Happy hunting =)

I've heard of instances not spawning chests. You might bug this on the daybreak forums.

The sequence of steps in this quest is sometimes bugged, but it's possible to complete it. Today our first combat step was to kill invaders (0/8). This step completed normally by killing puslings near the zone-in. The second step was to kill enemy invaders (0/4). We cleared our way out of the inner ring, then killed all of the "a virulent brute" with the aid of our whistles. We saw a yellow "task stage completed" emote after 4 of them, but at no time did our count of "enemy invaders" update, remaining 0/4. We killed the rest of the brutes, then returned to Lashun Novashine and gave him a whistle. This caused the chest with loot to spawn but did not complete the quest. However, pestilent, leprous and bubonian invaders spawned at this point in the outer ring. We killed four of the pestilent and leprous invaders (bubonians did not update) to meet the enemy invaders count and complete the quest, including granting the lesser spirit armor reward.

This might be due to the fact that instances were bugged. After this mornings patch, this should be fixed.

I did this HA tonight and the 3rd part was to kill 4 invaders of decay, description said they were Brutes....I killed 6 a Virulent Brute, using the whistle multiple times per brute and none of the 6 kills counted....so I didn't get the completion reward, but I tried turning in the whistle which did spawn a chest with 1 minor essence of life and https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=124607

Sadly it isn't :(

at first I thought it was bugged also, then i noticed on track mobs like ' a bubonian invader' that cleared the step, then went and killed the brutes with the pets from the whistle to clear the next step

This is still bugged as of May 2018. Happily, the posted approach still works to complete the quest.

FYI - I filed a ticket with DBG and was told:

"I've gone ahead and reported your concerns regarding this problem to our team.... This will need to be tested by our team, if it is not functioning as intended, then we hope to see it fixed soon. I don't have an ETA as to when..."
Brutes

I did this HA tonight and the 3rd part was to kill 4 invaders of decay, description said they were Brutes....I killed 6 a Virulent Brute, using the whistle multiple times per brute and none of the 6 kills counted....so I didn't get the completion reward, but I tried turning in the whistle which did spawn a chest with 1 minor essence of life and https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=124607

In the instance where you're tasked with

Rescue the injured Overseers (5)
Destroy the Invaders Weapons (4)

the NPC's are NOT single pullable some of the time. I got 2 sets on the injured overseers that would not single pull, I had to kite one of them on my bard.

Also, when you zone in you speak to Lashun and she gives you a 1.5 sec cast time healing potion that you use on the injured to complete the task... You cannot cast the spell on the NCP's unless the 2 (or 3) NPC's guarding it are dead.

It doesn't appear we have a write up for that particular version. Do you have the steps for that particular version?

Did this tonight and after I handed my whistle in to Lashun Novashine I got the objective update to loot the chest and no chest appeared. Tried logging in and out and zoning in and out to no avail.

Might be a bug maybe not... If anyone else has some insight or could let me know what I did wrong it would be appreciated... maybe even help someone else out if they do this.

Tried this again (the next night very same version of this expedition) I didn't delete my whistles given to me at the beginning of the adventure the previous night. So of the 10 charges on the whistle I had like 2 on each character... now i've got one brute left and no charges on my whistles... (3-boxing this)

Had the named pop on me today, but did not try him. My crew has a hard enough time with the named in Crypt Crimes. It was a named rat, Vomitus. He spawned on a ledge over looking the supplies crates, near the center gazebo.

It seems that there may be up to six different versions of this task - I say six because this seems to be related to progression for requesting heroic adventures in Crypt of Sul.

The assignments vary, but boil down to (from what I have gathered so far):

1) Kill commanders, destroy ballistas
2) Kill mobs, destroy weapon crates, kill more mobs
3) Kill mobs, kill commanders
4) Kill mobs, kill couriers, kill more mobs
5) Kill mobs, kill ballistas, kill commanders (listed above)
6) Kill mobs, destroy weapon racks

One note about the tasks involving killing inanimate objects (weapon crates, ballista, weapon racks, etc): The mobs guarding any one of these objects seem to be aggro-linked. They can be snared, haven't checked for root.
