Tips and Misc

  • This is a standalone side-quest, not part of the main storyline. The questgiver is by the entrance.
  • The orbs count as breakables, guaranteeing that bonus.
  • Often, monsters rise up from the ground when you break the orbs. In several cases, breaking them from range and/or fast movement allows you to leave before the mobs fully spawn.
  • After the Northern Root-tunnel's orbs are destroyed, a root wall, defended by Feywild Vine Blights springs back up at the junction with the Northwestern Root-tunnel, preventing you from returning to the Barrier; make sure not to DD unless you've already taken out both sets of orbs.
  • The Ravenous Displacer Beast may be found in the Southern Root-tunnel at the second barrier.
