Walkthrough[edit]

Kol is a champion giant with a great deal of health. He uses 4 skills:

  • A massive AoE ground stomp with his right foot which causes knockdown and cripple.
  • An enormous yell which causes AoE Weakness, and after 1 second it causes fear.
  • Digging to retrieve a giant boulder and then throwing it.
  • Stomping the ground three times, crippling with first hit, and knocking back with second and third. Standing inside his avatar is an effective way to avoid being hit by this ability.

Because of his frequent stomping, it is recommended to stay as far away from him as possible, or learn to dodge. Do not pull Kol outside of his cave, or he will walk back and reset.

Dialogue[edit]

Before starting the event:

Shining Blade Kimber: I must get through. But how? (ambient dialogue - does not show up in chat)
Shining Blade Kimber is crying.
Shining Blade Kimber: I'm a bit preoccupied at the moment. Things aren't going well. I don't know what I'm going to do. I've lost all hope.
Charisma
Chin up. Sharing your burden with a friend helps.
That's very kind of you, and I am in need of help. My husband went into the caves there. I have to find him, but every time I try to enter, a giant bars my path. He's too strong to take alone. Would you assist me?

Of course.
Talk end option tango.png
Actually, I better not.
Dignity
Don't be sad. Two can carry a burden that one can't. Can I help?
Thank you. I do need help. My husband went into the caves there. I have to find him, but every time I try to enter, a giant bars my path. He is too strong to take alone. Would you assist me?
Talk ready option.png
Of course.
Talk end option tango.png
Actually, I better not.
Talk more option tango.png
I haven't met a problem I couldn't beat. Tell me, and I'll do what I can.
You're powerful as well as kind. I need help. My husband went into the caves there. I have to find him, but every time I try to enter, a giant bars my path. He's too strong to take alone. Would you assist me?

Of course.
Talk end option tango.png
Actually, I better not.

Never mind.

When you agree to help:

Shining Blade Kimber: You are a blessing. Come—this way.
Shining Blade Kimber: My husband is of the Shining Blade as well. He was on a mission for the queen but he's strayed from his schedule. (ambient dialogue - does not show up in chat)

When you reach Kol:

Shining Blade Kimber: Look there. He's coming. (ambient dialogue)
Kol Skullsmasher: So. You've returned, you puny little puke. You are persistent.
Shining Blade Kimber: I have, and this time I brought backup!
Kol Skullsmasher: Hah! If you think they can help you, you're mistaken. You will not get past me like your piddling mate did.
Kol Skullsmasher: You will die. Now.

When Kol reaches 25% health:

Kol Skullsmasher: May you find failure and sorrow wherever you go for this injury you cause me! (ambient dialogue)

After defeating Kol and completing the event:

Shining Blade Kimber: Now there's nothing standing between me and my husband.
