Reward tier Experience Karma Coin
Gold 26,670 Experience.png 378 Karma 88 Copper coin
Silver 20,003 Experience.png 284 Karma 66 Copper coin

These are the expected rewards for a level 80 player.


The event will begin in the crater at Freedom's Catchment shortly after the previous event in the chain is successfully completed, with the encounter starting once all NPCs involved in the Ice Floe oil gathering event chain arrive at the event location.

Oil will begin spewing from the pipes around the crater and shortly afterwards Volatile Oil Slug Sulypix will appear and become hostile. At the same time the oil covering the floor of the crater will need to be recovered in the same way as the preceding oil reclamation event; players can approach the oil drop-off point to acquire the Oil Reclamation Pump special action skill if they do not already have it from the preceding event. As well as ensuring the reclaimed oil does not empty completely (thus causing the event to fail), removing the oil will also make combat with Sulypix easier by removing the Sweet Crude effect from the combat area.

Throughout the fight Sulypix will occasionally leap up in the air and drop down again, depositing more oil wherever it lands (which can be removed via the oil reclamation pump) and at times emitting a shockwave. This shockwave will knock players over but can be avoided by jumping over it. At times Sulypix will also charge in various directions, again depositing oil as it moves.

When Sulypix reaches 50% health, Kralkatorrik will brand Sulypix and the immediate area. This will cause both the rate of oil depletion to increase and Branded mobs to spawn nearby the Oil Reclamation Pump, however they can be largely ignored. Continue fighting Sulypix and reclaiming the spilled oil, and the event will succeed when Sulypix has been defeated.






Event start
Braham: That is one big ugly oil slug. Rox, you okay?
Rox: I'm revolted. Same as you. Otherwise, fine.
During the event
Rox: Kralkatorrik! He's Branded it!
Braham: As if we didn't have enough to deal with.
Event success
Braham: Think some volatile magic got into your oil supply?
Miner Mikhail: Very clever, for a norn. Anyhow, we collected plenty of oil from that spill. Half is yours. Hope it's enough.
Rox: It looks like it will be. Thank you.
Boticca: Will you dredge have enough oil to keep yourselves warm?
Miner Mikhail: The spirit of revolution burns with a ceaseless flame.
Rox: Think that means yeah. Come on, let's go.
