Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Warning: If Evennia is killed, your party will lose and be sent back to the Henge of Denravi.
Note: Evennia can, however, be safely ignored for the entire quest if she isn't talked to. See Alternative Approaches, below.
Just go outside of the Henge of Denravi to meet Evennia. After a small skirmish with Titans you will see a herd of jungle creatures fleeing your way... ignore them. Follow Evennia to a crossroads of three pathways. Titans will come from all 3 directions to attack. Mostly there will be Wind Born Titans, Earth Born Titans, and Water Born Titans, but sometimes more advanced Titans will appear. There will be several waves and the final wave will have a boss.
Defeating this quest relies on ignoring the Wild Growths. Kill the smaller Born Titans first, and if a huge Rotting Titan appears take it down too. But if a Growth appears or spawns from the Rotting Titan, just ignore it. When you are sure no more groups are coming, take out one Growth and then its spawns before taking out another one. Growths are poison rangers. Their damage and health degeneration can be countered easily by a pair of solid monks.
Alternative Approach 1[edit | edit source]
Ignore Evennia as mentioned above and head for the point where you are to make your stand but stop short of that. As you approach that point where the Shining Blade guards are, the road will slope down as it turns left. Stay atop that hill and just have one party member go down only as much as needed to trigger the conversation between the guards. This allows you to avoid being swarmed from three sides by Titans and instead have them all come up the hill to your party.
Alternative Approach 2[edit | edit source]
With Heroes, this mission becomes easy to solo. For example, take a Ranger hero with Greater Conflagration, Winter, and 1 or 2 interrupting attacks; a healing Monk; and an Elementalist with Ward Against Elements with at least 11+1 in Earth Magic, Maelstrom (no Water Magic points required) and the rest high-damage spells in either the Fire Magic or Earth Magic line. If you are one of these primary professions, add another hero of your choice, preferably a damage dealer. Either way, choose Mesmer as the secondary profession for the whole team and let all equip Mantra of Frost, with 4-6 points in Inspiration Magic. Don't take any of the level 15 henchmen, they will not be very helpful and will on the other hand put a lot of healing pressure on your monk.
As for solving the quest, ignore Evennia and trigger the conversation as stated above. Let your heroes wait in a safe distance on the path from which you came, because the other two roads leading to the battlefield are patrolled by Born Titans. Your job will be to lure the minimum amount of enemy mobs to that location and kill them off one by one. The enemy groups are very small, either a single Wild Growth (which turns into 3 different lesser Titans) or 2-3 Born Titans. Always have your Ranger locked on the Water Born Titan, their Maelstrom might be devastating on your team. Use your own Maelstrom on the Rotting Titans and the boss. After a few fights, the final boss will spawn and you only have to kill him to complete the quest.
Bosses[edit | edit source]
Notes[edit | edit source]
- This quest, while similar to Defend North Kryta Province (see tips in that quest), is actually much easier because to win, you need only slay the boss that comes trailing at the end. When he shows, focus all your fire power on him and slay him. When that's done, you will get the task crossed out in your Quest Log (even if dozens of Titans remain) and you can simply leave.
- It is possible to finish this quest by ignoring Evennia and simply proceeding with the quest as normal; the battles won't be any easier (and Evennia is a healer) but you won't have to worry about keeping Evennia alive so it might be easier.
- The exact order of the Intermediate Dialogues is a little confusing, but shown here in what makes the most sense. Also note, the Shining Blade Warrior's dialogue will only appear if is still alive at the appropriate cue.
