In order for our efforts against the mantid empire to continue, we require more amber.

There is a great deposit of amber underneath the lake to the south, but the area is inhabited by a savage saurok tribe.

I cannot spare anyone else. You must go to the lake and test the tribe's strength. Thin their numbers and eliminate their leader.

Surely this is not too great a task for you?

The amber looks familiar for some reason...


The whispers seem to be emanating from within this amber.

Could there be another paragon sleeping within?



Pick up N [30-35] Extending Our Coverage before heading out. Extending Our Coverage takes place to the southwest between Kypari Ik and the Briny Muck, while Amber Is Life takes place to the southeast by Kypari Ik and the Lake of Stars, so pick one set to do first.

Head southeast to the Lake of Stars and start killing Mistblade Rippers. Any one of them will drop the  [Strange Relic], which starts N [30-35] Relics of the Swarm. Then, while killing other saurok of the Mistblade tribe, loot the Mantid Relics off of the ground.

The Mistblade Scale-Lord is in a small cave with its mouth just southeast of the lake.[66.8, 63.9]

On entering the cave:

A Mysterious Voice whispers: Even in my sleep, I hear her terror.
A Mysterious Voice whispers: Fear grips her mind and body. The Empress is no longer fit to rule the empire.

Near the Ancient Amber Chunk:

A Mysterious Voice whispers: A presence approaches! Someone out there can here me! But... it is no Klaxxi.

Aggro the Scale-Lord:

Mistblade Scale-Lord says: This amber is ours, trespasser! Amber not for the mantid!
A Mysterious Voice whispers: The time of awakening must be near, but they have not yet come for me. Why do the Klaxxi wait?

The Scale-Lord is a level 90 saurok with 1,181,000 health and the following abilities:

  • Charge 5-35 yd range — Charges an enemy, inflicting normal damage and stuns the opponent for 2 sec. Instant. Hits for ~10000 Physical on cloth.
  • Cleave — Inflicts 400% of normal melee damage to an enemy and its nearest ally. Next melee. Hits for ~45,000 Phyiscal on cloth.
  • Demoralizing Shout — Reduces the attack power of nearby enemies for 30 sec.
  • Kick Melee range — Kicks an enemy for 71 damage, interrupting the spell being cast for 6 sec. Instant.

Finish him off. Interact with the amber chunk:

A Mysterious Voice whispers: Yes! Break it! Free me from this amber sleep!

Korven the Prime appears:

Korven the Prime says: At... last... my time has come.
Korven the Prime says: Yes, Klaxxi'va. How long I have waited to hear the Council's command!
Korven the Prime says: I see. Much has transpired since I first entered my long sleep.
Korven the Prime says: There is much to do. But first, Wakener... help me recover my strength.

Speak with him:

As soon as I awakened, the Klaxxi sensed my presence and relayed as much as they dared.
They confirmed my own suspicions. The Empress is no longer fit to rule the empire. She must be... cleansed.
