Slay 200 Blackrock Invaders. If you should lose your vehicle, use the Horn of the Callers to summon it again.

  • Blackrock Invader slain x200

Provided item:  [Horn of the Callers]


This is it, <name>. This is where it hits the fan. Where all the pieces come together.

Strap in, and come with me. We're going to go talk to Acride and call in that favor that he owes us. Then we'll stop this invasion of Redridge before it even starts.


You will receive: 2g 30s


Now's our chance! Crush them! We won't get another opportunity like this!


Did you see them run? They didn't know what was happening! Beautiful!

Our job's almost done, <name>. It's time to deliver the deathblow.


Accept the quest and a cutscene begins:

Meanwhile, atop Dreadmaul Rock...
The camera flies away to the top of Dreadmaul Rock where the Big Three are holding a war conference. Thorg'izog is trying to cover for something and Neeralak is covered with soot...
High Warlock Xi'lun says: We are nearly prepared to start this battle, brothers. Thorg'izog, what is the matter? Why are you covering your butt like that?
General Thorg'izog says: WHAT? No reason... it's just... something is very wrong with my stomach. I think it's something I ate.
High Warlock Xi'lun says: Can you still lead your troops? Do you need to promote one of your sergeants?
General Thorg'izog says: Timan fell from the Pillar of Ash. Otahna was eaten by wolves. Gorlop fell in lava. And most of my sergeants were killed in a freak cudgelling accident.
High Warlock Xi'lun says: I see. Well, do the best you can. Neeralak, why are you all black and smoky?
Dragon-Lord Neeralak says: Those imps you had delivered... they woke up and started shooting fireballs at everybody! It was chaos!
High Warlock Xi'lun says: Delivered? Woke up? What are you even talking about? Were you attacked by flamekin?
Dragon-Lord Neeralak says: Imps, flamekin, whatever! I don't know warlock crap. Demons all look the same to me!
Dragon-Lord Neeralak says: Besides, I've been busy dealing with other issues. Dozens of my dragons died when those two enemies swept through the front lines.
High Warlock Xi'lun says: You're both failures. But it doesn't matter: with a pit lord on our side, we won't need foot soldiers OR dragons. Behold!
The camera pulls away as Xi'lun walks away to attempt to summon the pit lord...
High Warlock Xi'lun says: [Demonic] Zar zar refir zenn X zennshi x buras daz.
Hellmondath, an elite pit lord appears!
High Warlock Xi'lun says: And now to quickly use the Orb of Domination, before the pit lord turns on us.
The "orb" fails, and Hellmondath starts attacking the blackrock army! The camera pulls back up to Neeralak and Thorg'izog.
General Thorg'izog says: The pit lord's loose! We're doomed! Retreat!
General Thorg'izog says: Quickly, everyone run toward those dragons! All troops, towards the dragons! The dragons will save us!
Dragon-Lord Neeralak says: I never called any dragons...

The cutscene cuts to a close as the player is mounted upon the Obsidian-Cloaked Dragon. Laughing. Laughing very hard.

The Blackrock forces are panicking! Strike at them now!

The dragon has one ability:

  • Fiery Breath — Fires a bolt of fiery breath at enemy targets, inflicting 15000 damage to all Blackrock Invaders. 

Fiery Breath is more than enough to one-shot the members of the Blackrock army caught in the blast radius. Take out 200 and fly back to Morgan's Vigil.
