Slay the Springtail Warren-Mother.


Like any farming community, we have the occasional virmen troubles.

The most powerful Springtail virmen live high up in the cliffs to the north, and only come down when they run out of veggies to nibble on.

Frankly, I've dealt with virmen before. They're nothing but a pest that must be kept in check, and there's no better way to do that than by killing their warren-mother. Easy as that.

("Springtail Warren-Mother: Till and kill, neighbor. Till and kill.")

I've had plenty of experience with virmen in the past. Just show them you're stronger than they are, and they'll back off.


There, that's done with. Now we shift our focus back to farming, for a change.



Pick up the other dailies before heading out.

Fly up to the Springtail Crag and enter the westernmost virmen din. In the back of the den is the Springtail Warren-Mother, pathing a circle in front of some stolen sugar beets, watermlons, and hot peppers.

The warren-mother, a level 90 virmen with 787,000 health, has the following abilities:

  • Tail Spring Melee range — Hits target enemy with his tail, inflicting Physical damage and knocking the target away. Instant. Hits for ~8300 Physical on cloth.
  • Putting My Foot Down! — Stomp the ground, inflicting Physical damage and blinding enemies within 7 yards with a dust cloud. Instant. Hits for 14 Physical.
  • Frenzied Hop — Madly hops up and down, dealing 11 Physical damage to all enemies within 7 yards every 0.50 sec for 5 sec. Channeled. Hits for 1882-1883 Physical on cloth.

Aggro her:

Springtail Warren-Mother says: This virmen land!

At some percentage of health lost, she will run to one of the stolen vegetable piles and munch on them, gaining an ability:

Springtail Warren-Mother says: Fighting make me... HUNGRY!
