Ah hae a seicont cousin twa times lifted wha hud fought thae hings afore 'n' he said that if ye skelp thaim upside th' heid thay mak' a funny sound lik' BONK or something 'n' then thare wis a SQUISH bit that's beside th' point stoap asking aboot mah cousins! We hae bigger problems tae tak' care o'! A'm needin' ye tae focus at th' hing at haun. Sae 'ere in th' Great Divide, ye kin see that th' coldain hae bin pushed back intae th' caves, hiding fae ilka cratur that haes crawled up fae th' frost.

That defeats th' purpose o' th' hunt itself. Yi''ll need tae git clatty, become yin wi' nature, breath in dirt 'n' cop th' win` atween yer toes! That's howfur ye hunt! nae wi' whispering some curses or drawing fancy stick figures in a rock. Sae if ye uise magic, na offense that's braw 'n' a' bit if ye care aboot mah opinion, whilk ye shuid, ye shuid ken that yer cheating 'n' that's wrong! whin ye pockle at hunting ye pockle at '

You say, ' What hunt?'

Brollo Aleslay says, 'Aye, hunt. That's [whit] ye'r aff tae dae!'

You say, 'whit'

Brollo Aleslay says, 'Gidonoroglets out a long, drawn out sigh and says in a slow, over-annunciated tone, 'Can you hunt [dervishes], [skeletons], or [wurms]?''

You say, 'dervishes'

You have been assigned the task 'Lake-Effect Snow Devils'.

Not even the dervishes are safe from what is affecting the Great Divide. Clear them out.

  • Kill Snow Dervishes 0/9 (The Great Divide)

    Slay 9 A windchill sprite (snow dervish model) for task update. These can be found in the NW portion of the zone and in the Coldain mines south of the giant fort but seem to share spawn points with the tizmak and cadavers.

    Jan patch messed up the kill mobs
    A frigid cadaver. That's what is ph for the sprites now due to Jan patch changes might be a bug or not??

    Your task 'Lake-Effect Snow Devils' has been updated.

    The wind seems calmer since you killed the dervishes.

    It seems that there are now spaning a couple of them just north of Bloodmaw. Kodiaks seem to be the PH. I killed a sprite and a Kodiak respawned at the same position.
    Far South to the east of the frozen river

    Go far South to the east of where the frozen river hits the south zone wall. If you go directly south from the quest giver, then go along the south zone wall across to the east, you'll find some. As you follow that path, you'll also run across a few.

    After following the suggestions, and killing "A windchill sprite (snow dervish model)" several times for task update, the task does not update. We were in the tunnel in between the last two caves, then followed the post and tried by killing outside of the caves at the "A frigid cadaver." Still did not update. I submitted a Bug Report.

    You must kill restless miners in the southwestern caves to get the windchill sprites to spawn. The further in the caves you go the better the spawn rate, with the best being in the second or third to the end.
    Strange things afoot with the spawn rates...

    So, the first time we did this over a month back, it was pretty straight forward. Had a bard tracking the sprites and found some over near the timzaks (not on timzak spawns, just in that area) on the west side. There was a necro killing cadavers to spawn the sprites as well. Since then, we haven't seen any sprites outside the mine in the southeast. When killing restless miners there, we've had terrible rates (1:20 ish). Any information on a best spot to spawn them would be greatly appreciated.

    More info on spawn rates...

    Spent many hours in the mines today. Killed over 100 miners. Spawned 8 sprites. Better than 1:20 from before, but still really bad. There are likely good spots somewhere in the mines with better rates, but haven't found them yet.
    WTH are the Dervishes?

    I have only got one Dervish to spawn. Is there some kind of bug? These things are far too rare? I have fought everything in the zone that supposed to spawn these for hours.
    Dervish new spawn area

    Dervishes are popping in the Coldain mines south of the giant fort. Kill restless miners.
