Walkthrough[edit]

  • Enter the newly-opened cave and clear several sets of spiders. Be careful not to rush forward; doing so will spawn all the spiders at once and can easily lead to a party wipe. Instead, move forward slowly, spawning one set of spiders at a time.
  • There are 2 small spawns of spiders in the initial tunnel, 2 large spawns to the left and right ends of the room, then another larger spawn halfway up the hill.

Boss: Malrona[edit]

  • After clearing the last set of spiders, a boss named Malrona will spawn. She is a rather mobile boss with two primary attacks: a frontal cone attack that deals moderate damage and poisons, and a multi-target ranged AoE spitting attack that deals a significant amount of damage (oftentimes enough to instantly down those who fail to dodge out of the AoE in time).
  • Malrona's multi-target attack is telegraphed by standard red AoE rings, but players do not have much time once the rings appear to react and dodge. She can also throw this attack anywhere in a 360-degree arc around her, so the only way to be sure to avoid it is to stay at long range.
  • It is recommended to fight Malrona in the large room in which she spawns; this gives players plenty of room to maneuver and dodge her AoE attacks.
  • Note that Malrona's poison-spew attack (the frontal cone) applies poison, and also has a subtle but important side effect- attacks will deal about 4 times normal damage to her while you remain poisoned.

Interlude[edit]

  • Once Malrona is dead, move forward carefully and a group of stonetouch spiders will spawn. Be wary of their ability to stun multiple players for a rather long time (stunbreaks do not work against this either), but otherwise this should be a rather straightforward fight.
  • Next you will encounter a fork: take the left path. Nightmare vines will spawn here and in the next room a large group of spiders will spawn as well. Most players choose to simply run past these mobs into the tunnel leading to the next boss. If running, be sure to equip condition removal since the spiders can apply cripple.

Boss: Fyonna[edit]

  • Past the long tunnel in the large egg-filled cave is the next boss, Fyonna. Touching eggs in the room causes spiders to spawn. To avoid contact with the eggs pull Fyonna into the tunnel and engage her there.
  • As long as you don't touch the eggs, this is a straightforward fight; Fyonna is a ranged attacker with both knockback and pull abilities, but her damage is moderate at best and should not pose much danger.
  • When Fyonna's health is low, she will transform into a large spider. This is apparently cosmetic since she seems no more or less dangerous in this form.
  • When you run through her room afterwards, remember to not touch or go near the eggs.

Cliffs and Wardens[edit]

  • Past Fyonna are various Nightmare Court archers stationed near cliffs the party must drop down from. Most parties elect to run past these.
  • After dropping down the final cliff, you will encounter two wardens guarding a gate. Both are melee with knockdown abilities. It is possible to pull just one warden at a time using a skill like Spectral Grasp or Scorpion Wire.
  • Of the two wardens, the one wielding the hammer (silver ring) has much less health but in general can burst for much more damage, so it may be advantageous to focus him if fighting both at the same time.

Nightmare Tree[edit]

  • The final boss is the Nightmare Tree. In this path, it will repeatedly spawn mortar and healing turrets around itself.
  • By far the easiest method to beat this version of the Nightmare Tree is to stay near the room entrance and bombard it with skills at 1,200+ range. The seed mortar turrets will not be able to hit you and you will not reset the boss.
  • Be sure to watch for the appearance of red AoE circles on the ground and dodge out of them. If you fail to do so, you will be hit for massive damage as well as have 20 stacks of bleed applied to you, almost certainly leading to a down unless you are specced heavily into toughness/vitality.
  • Standing on the branches near the entrance (off to the left) will help you avoid the tree's AoE attacks.

Dialogue[edit]

Talking to Morrigu[edit]

After choosing split

Morrigu: Be quick. Leurent seeks the Nightmare Tree. I know that if he gains it, it will tear through Tyria like giant sword.
Talk end option tango.png
Then let's stop him.

After defeating Fyonna

Morrigu: There is nothing between us and Laurent's anger. Be ready for him, for he'll hunt and kill you for his enjoyment.
Talk end option tango.png
He better be ready for me.

After defeating the Nightmare Tree

Morrigu: Leurent. My broken friend, my ruined love. Rest and sleep in the peace you always pushed away from.
Talk more option tango.png
What will you do now?
I'll mourn Leurent, but rage burned away all he used to be. At least I know he'll no longer harm anyone else.
Talk more option tango.png
What about the Nightmare Tree?
Like Leurent, it is no more. It will have to be broken into pieces and burned, just to make sure no one can revive it for their vile purposes.
Talk more option tango.png
What will you do now? (same as above)
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png
What about the Nightmare Tree? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png
I take it this Wyld Hunt is at an end for you?
This was not my Wyld Hunt. This was an act of mercy, for my lost love and for the people who he attacked. The kodan speak of balance. In a way, I suppose I was trying to right a wrong.

Event Scenes[edit]

Upon reaching Malrona:

Morrigu: (shudders) It's Fyonna's horrid champion, Malrona.

Upon reaching Fyonna:

Vevina: You treacherous monster. I will tear all of your spiders apart for turning on me.
Fyonna: Oh, your bluster is charming, my sweet. But you couldn't have believed I would rule alongside you.
Fyonna: My children deseerve Faolain's gift, and with it I shall let them feast on the whole world.
Vevina: Your spiders are above me? I hope Leurent skewers you and leaves you to rot in the shade.
Fyonna: Oh, don't be like that, sweetie. You are rather special. After all, my children haven't eaten in a long time.

After defeating Fyonna (cinematic):

<Character name>: Two down, one to go. Leurent should be a pushover compared to those two.
Morrigu: Not hardly. I know what he's capable of.
<Character name>: Are you holding something back?
Morrigu: I loved him. I thought we would be entwined forever. But the bloodlust consumed him and took his mind.
Morrigu: Be ready for war-his true mistress. And if you're worried about me, don't be. I can face him. I moved on long ago.

Upon locating the Nightmare Tree (cinematic):

Morrigu: Put away your rage, my lost love. Come with me, or you'll lose yourself to this twisted growth.
Leurent: I see you brought outsiders. Did they fall for your whining about love and mercy?
Morrigu: You were the only one I ever loved. But you chose blood over my tenderness.
Morrigu: I did not want to face you again, my darling. But I can't let you have this awful tree.
Morrigu: I know your rage. I know your hatred. If you give yourself to this tree, you will burn the world.
Leurent: Yes, yes I will. You will all bear witness to it. Especially you, my "love." Suffer, break, and burn!

Upon defeating the Nightmare Tree (cinematic):

Morrigu: The shock of Leurent's passing will be brief, but the wound will never fully heal.
Morrigu: Please, leave me to mourn. I must tend to the fallen and put my dear to rest.
