SEEDS OF DESTRUCTION PROGRESSION PAGE

(FIELD OF SCALE THEME)

This page reveals how to properly progress with the Seeds of Destruction expansion and more specifically, the Field of Scale "theme," to include the raid access.

As far as proper progression goes, this is the third (3rd) series of progression tasks, but they do not have to be accomplished in the intended sequence. Whatever order you do them in, each completed task series will flag you for the next version of The Void, whatever that may be for you.

From The Void, you can go into different "themes" where there are multiple zones. Each set of zones (aka "themes") has its series of progression related tasks / missions / raids.

These various tasks / missions / raids award flags that allow you to either request missions, request raids, gain an item piece for the over all progression item (Timeshear) and / or flag you so that you can obtain certain merchant sold items, like Rank III spells.

As you may have noticed, The Void (A) is in ruins… objects float all about on the outer fringes and it generally looks pretty decimated. Your goal is to undertake tasks/missions to "reverse" this decimation (accomplished a step at a time in each "theme"). Upon completing each theme's "progression," you will be flagged to enter the "next" The Void, where you will notice things have improved somewhat. This will be true each time, no matter which theme's progression sequence you complete first.

Further, Zebuxoruk (Level 90) will offer (sell) more and different items in each version of The Void.

NOTE: This progression ties in with mercenaries. The more you have progressed, the higher level of mercenaries you are offered and / or can purchase.

NOTE: These task series intertwine heavily with the task series for Bayle's Heraldic Crest, the Timeshear the Blood of the Fallen, Baron Yosig's Skeleton and the Dark Soul Crystal. Many of these tasks can be accomplished simultaneously.

THE QUEST(S)/TASK(S)

FACTION

1) FIELD OF SCALE: You are looking for Phara Dar (Level 90), who is in the dragon area, due south of the zone in.

In the same area, Jaled’ Dar will give you the progression tasks, but not until you do some pre-requisite factioning (it requires doing other tasks, not directly related to progression), as noted below.

It is very unclear as to what set of tasks you need to do at a minimum.

Basically, you need to do the Baron Yosig’s Skeleton series, at least up to "The Grand Illusion" quest (which, itself requires a series of previous tasks, that are all part of the same series,), which will unlock the Jaled' Dar quests for you.

.

LOST AND FOUND

2) FIELD OF SCALE: Have a decent group and then hail Jaled’Dar and follow along, or just try saying, “Investigate” to get the solo task called, “Lost and Found.”

In this same zone, you now have a fifteen (15) minutes to complete this task!

The task is outlined here.

TOP

                                                                                                                .

PARLEY WITH GANAK

3) FIELD OF SCALE: Have a high-end group together and then hail Jaled’Dar and follow along, or just try saying, “Parley” to get the solo task called, “Parley with Ganak.”

This is a tough event, as you will be faced with multiple MOB’s all at once.

This task is outlined here.

 Jaled’Dar will now off you group tasks.

TOP

.

AUDIENCE WITH THE WARMASTER

4) FIELD OF SCALE: Have a good  group together and then hail Jaled’Dar and follow along, or just try saying, “Still available,” to get the group mission called, “Audience with the Warmaster.”

 .

5) KURN’S STRONGHOLD: AUDIENCE WITH THE WARMASTER: The zone-in to this instanced zone is in the same place as the regular zone.

Once here, you need to do the following:

·         In the upper floors, find and kill two Thessila’s Blademaster and Thessila’s Runemaster (both level 84);

·         Now kill Thessila the Dark (Level 85, she has a 9K AoE stun), for the win.

You can now claim your mission rewards, to include a Timeshear Red Fragment Dena (Magic, Lore, Weight 0.0).

You need to hang on to this, or sell it to Tavid Dennant in the Guild Lobby (you can buy it back later, when you actually need it).

TOP

.

THE BROOD OF AN EMPEROR

6) FIELD OF SCALE: Have a high-end group together and head back to hail Jaled’Dar and follow along, or just try saying, “Still available,” to get the group mission called, “The Brood of an Emperor.”

.

7) KAESORA HATCHERY: THE BROOD OF AN EMPEROR: The zone-in to this instanced zone is in the same place as the regular zone.

Once here, you need to do the following:

·         You need to destroy twenty-one (21) An Imperial Egg (Level 80). These are located all about the zone on the pedestals and shelves. With your Ancient Iksar illusion on, you can freely run about and destroy them with no aggro.

·         Before destroying the last egg, have everyone go back to the zone line and invis up, as one player destroys the last egg. Destroying the last egg will spawn the first waves of MOB’s that you need to kill and they will “key” on one player and make their way to them.

·         You will need to kill a total of four (4) A Rear Guard Trooper (Level 81), two (1) A Rear Guard Scalebrand (Level 81), one (1) A Rear Guard Juggernaut (Level 84) and then finally, Captain Teszk (Level 85) for the win.

You can now claim your mission rewards, to include a Timeshear Red Fragment Beza (Magic, Lore, Weight 0.0).

You need to hang on to this, or sell it to Tavid Dennant in the Guild Lobby (you can buy it back later, when you actually need it).

THE PRICE OF KNOWLEDGE

8) FIELD OF SCALE: Have a high-end group together and head back to hail Jaled’Dar and follow along, or just try saying, “Still available,” to get the group mission called, “The Brood of an Emperor.”

You will be given an Akromid Crystal (Lore, No Trade, Weight 0.8). Even though the item has no such description, it is a clicky item used as noted, below.

.

9) KAESORA LIBRARY: THE PRICE OF KNOWLEDGE: The zone-in to this instanced zone is in the same place as the regular zone.

Once here, you need to do the following:

·         You need to find A Corrupt Scholar (Level 86) and attack it. At about 30%, right click the Akromid Crystal on it. You may or may not get a task update. Repeat this process until you do. You may need a tracker to find these MOB’s;

·         You need to find and kill three (3) A Corrupted Beguiler (Level 85). There are only three (3) of these in the zone and a tracker for these will be handy as well. One is in the “main library” (west) and the other two are in the side rooms of the upper “vault” area (east).

·         WARNING: Do not kill the third one straight out!

·         Some people have reported mission bug issues when killing the third one too fast, so don’t be in a hurry on the third one;

·         On the 3rd A Corrupted Beguiler, kill it slowly. Kill it too fast and you will miss the task sequence involved and the mission will bug! At about 30%, A Corrupted Beguiler will stop fighting and speak. Follow along. After the task update, you can finish him off.

·         NOTE: It has been reported that sometimes more than three (3) A Corrupted Beguiler will spawn. If so, you will need to kill them all to spawn Coercer Gordak.

·         Now you need to find and kill Coercer Gordak (Level 85), who is down in the pit to the west side, on a platform.

·         Once he is dead, loot the Dragonbane Enchantment (No Trade, Weight 0.8).

.

10) FIELD OF SCALE: Head back to hail Jaled’Dar and give him the Dragonbane Enchantment for the win.

You can now claim your mission rewards, to include a Timeshear Red Fragment Azia (Magic, Lore, Weight 0.0).

·         WARNING: Do NOT get near or touch the shield…. at least, not yet!

·         Now clear the area and room to avoid being overwhelmed with adds.

·         When ready, walk up to the floating shield to spawn Shield Guard Neiska (Level 86, rampages and enrages).

FLAG ALERT: You are also flagged to request the first raid (of three, in a series) in this theme!

Gratz!

.

FIELD OF SCALE THEME RAIDS

A COUNCIL DIVIDED

17) FIELD OF SCALE: Form your raid (18 to 54 players) and head over to Jaled’Dar.

Hail and follow along or just try saying, “Great Risks” to get the raid event called, “A Council Divided.”

NOTE: There is a “hard” version (for up to 36 players) of this raid that can be accessed after defeating the “normal” raid.

.

18) KAESORA LIBRARY: RAID INSTANCE: Head on into the instance zone, located at the same place as the regular zone.

Once inside, head to the vault area (pit), where you will find your raid targets, namely the eight “council” members.

.

19) The idea here is to kill the four (4) “bad” members while off-tanking the four (4) “good” members (all are Level 88).

You can tell the difference by the emotes that will take place.

The “good” members are:

·         Sersei, Second Council Member

·         Glok, Third Council Member

·         Cathsas, Fourth Council Member

·         Argile, Sixth Council Member

The “bad” members are:

·         Klang, First Council Member

·         Vyth, Fifth Council Member

·         Nozirk, Seventh Council Member

·         Rebthik, Arbiter of the Council

WARNING: These are the “initial” good and bad members. If you wipe and try again, some of them seemingly will have a change of heart and the emotes will change around. Thus, who is “good” and who is “bad” will change!

.

20) When your raid is ready, talk to Rebthik to trigger the event.

The “good” members will be pretty much straight-up melee.

The “bad” members will use spells that include a targeted 10K DD/2K DoT (“Arcane Withering”); Single Target “Vulnerability” curses of different types (Magic, Disease, Poison & Fire), and levels (they decrease the applicable resistance by 600 and increase incoming spell damage as follows… II = 100%, III = 250%, IV = 500% and V = 1,000%).

Essentially, you will need eight (8) tanks with healers and DPS!

If you win, A Polished Chest (Level 70) will spawn with loot!

FLAG ALERT: You are now flagged to request the next raid, below (“Claiming Felbane the Dragonslayer”)!

TOP

.

CLAIMING FELBANE THE DRAGON SLAYER

21) FIELD OF SCALE: Form your raid (18 to 54 players) and head over to Trakanon (Level 90), in the same area as the rest of the dragons.

Hail and follow along or just try saying, “Assistance” to get the raid event called, “Claiming Felbane the Dragonslayer.”

NOTE: There is a “hard” version (for up to 36 players) of this raid that can be accessed after defeating the “normal” raid.

.

22) KURN’S STRONGHOLD: RAID INSTANCE: Head on into the instance zone, located at the same place as the regular zone.

Once inside your goal is to simply loot Felbane, The Dragonslayer (Magic, Lore, No Trade, Weight 3.2; 1H Slash; 23 Delay, 67 Damage, 20 Bonus, 1 Cold Damage, 100 Dragonkin Bane Damage; 58AC, 750 HP, 750 MANA, 750 END; 10 STR, 24 DEX, 47 STA, 23 CHA, 24 WIS, 22 INT, 31 AGI; 38 FIRE, 66 DIS, 38 COLD, 55 MAGIC, 33 POISON; Combat effects 7, Shielding 4, Spell Shield 1, Avoidance 14, Stun Resist 1, Strikethrough 3, DoT Shield 1, Attack 45, Hp Regen 4, Mana Regen 4; Required Level 80; Freezing Strike (175 DD Proc); Type 8 Slot.

Despite its stats, it is not wieldable by any player.

.

23) Obtaining Felbane, the Dragonslayer is accomplished as follows:

·         Find your way to a “cubby hole” on the first floor, to find the raid-related NPC’s/MOB’s (not KoS at the moment);

·         To activate the event, hail and follow along with General Kurn (Level 90);

·         You will now need to kill his “officers,” who will activate one at a time, on a timer (guessed to be 10 to 15 minutes)… thus if you take to long to kill one, you will soon have two;

·         You will be faced with a lot of adds for the entire event, so various types add-control/killing/kiting will be a BIG factor;

·         Reaver Lord Thersith (Level 88) can hit for 10K, enrages, has a single target 3K DD and an AoE 10K DD;

·         Torkis the Darkscale (Level 88) can hit for 10K, uses AoE Fear (Paladin tank this guy), casts up a Level 85 Skeleton pet, Lifetaps for 2.3K and has a 4K DD;

·         Srith the Iron Fist (Level 88) can hit for 10K, enrages, can feign death and can also cast an AoE feign death on the raid (STAND UP ASAP!);

·         Mudunugu Rathiss (Level 88) can hit for 10K, can mend, has a 5.4K DD and uses a 1K DD/400HP DoT;

·         Upon the death of the above four (4) MOB’s, be ready for the “boss” MOB;

·         Champion of the Tower (Level 89) can hit 11K, enrages, uses an AoE (75 range) 10-second stun and has a 65% slow with 12 decrease to spell casting;

·         Loot Felbane, The Dragonslayer from Champion of the Tower and do loot ASAP;

·         Upon the death of Champion of the Tower, a Military Chest (Level 70) will spawn with loot inside;

·         You will not have to fight General Kurn;

·         Remaining adds do not despawn and you need to continue the efforts to control them (they do not have to be killed for the raid success, but they will interfere with loot awarding).

FLAG ALERT: You are now flagged to request the final raid in this theme (below… “Final Confrontation”)!

TOP

.

FINAL CONFRONTATION

24) FIELD OF SCALE: Form your raid (18 to 54 players) and head back over to Jaled’Dar, in the same area as the rest of the dragons.

Hail and follow along or just try saying, “Finish this” to get the raid event called, “Final Confrontation.”

NOTE: There is a “hard” version (for up to 36 players) of this raid that can be accessed after defeating the “normal” raid.

Zone into the instance by saying “Aid” to Jaled’Dar.

.

25) FIELD OF SCALE: RAID INSTANCE (FINAL CONFRONTATION): You are here to “defend” the Dragons!

When you are ready, speak to Jaled’Dar to activate the event.

You will be tasked to defend Trakanon, Jaled’Dar, Severilous, Phara Dar, Gorenaire and then Talendor (all Level 90).

NOTE: These attacks (waves) are time based. If you don’t kill the first wave fast enough, you will soon have the second wave to deal with as well, and so forth. The timer is about three (3) minutes per wave (DPS is a factor)!

Each will be attacked by sixteen (16) MOB’s that consist of one (1) Iksar Sortie Captain (Level 88, AoE Rampage) and fifteen assorted/random Iksar Sortie Hunter (Level 85), Iksar Sortie Crusader (Level 85) and Iksar Sortie Soldier (all Level 85). All of these MOB’s summon right off the bat!

The first (1st) wave will have a few of the above MOB’s with the word “Augmented” in their name (such as “Augmented Iksar Sortie Soldier”), which are Level 86. These MOB’s can hit 5.5K, AoE Rampage, and carry a “bane” dragon weapon and need to be killed first.

Subsequent waves will have an increasing number of “augmented” MOB’s, making it progressively more difficult!

!!!WARNING!!! Use of AoE’s can and will aggro the dragons you are protecting! So, don’t!

.

26) The final step will be to protect Jaled’Dar again (now wounded) from Emperor Ganak (Level 90).

He can hit 12K, single-target rampage, AoE rampages, flurries, has an AoE 10K knock-back and more.

At about 15% health, Jaled’Dar will rise up and finish off Emperor Ganak, with his final breath.

The raid will be automatically teleported to a different instance.

.

27) FIELD OF SCALE: RAID INSTANCE (POST-EVENT): This is a safe zone.

If you died in the previous instance, simply say “aid” to Jaled’Dar in the regular Field of Scale zone to get here.

Near the corpses of Jaled’Dar and Emperor Ganak, there will be A Chest (Level 70) with the raid loot inside.
