In order to complete this event, players need to pull or push the beetles towards mushroom nodules. Once a beetle is close enough, players can stomp on the nodule to calm it down. Throughout this event players are confronted with multiple Chak creatures, as well as a poisonous atmosphere which requires the Itzel Poison Lore mastery.






Event start
Agent Kaylie: The Nuhoch have become adept at raising beetles, but their herd stampeded into the chak hive.
Randomly when beetles return
Agent Kaylie: That one seems to have calmed down. Keep at it.
Agent Kaylie: Whatever you're doing in there is working! Keep stomping!
Agent Kaylie: The Nuhoch claim these nodules can calm the beetles. Looks like they're right.
Agent Kaylie: The Nuhoch were smart to use the spores to calm them down.
Agent Kaylie: That's another one! We can use them to take down the dragon!
Agent Kaylie: The nodules are working! The beetles are returning!
Ramdomly during event
Agent Kaylie: The chak and the beetles don't like each other. Stay sharp!
Agent Kaylie: You should be able to pacify them with some nodules found in there.
Agent Kaylie: Get a beetle close to one of those nodules, then stomp on it. The beetle should calm down and return.
Agent Kaylie: Be sure to get the beetles by the nodules before you stomp.
Event success
Agent Kaylie: Fantastic! The beetles have calmed down. They're back on our side.
Agent Kaylie: Let's see what they can do against Mordremoth's minions.
Agent Kaylie: They're big enough to lead the charge!
