Event pre
Havmi: This location is teeming with wildlife. Their interaction with the crystals is especially fascinating.
Luula: Yes, yes, very fascinating. I predict our survival rate here to be a mere 33 percent. I suggest we leave before it drops further.
Havmi: Oh, quit exaggerating. We have at least a 33.8 percent chance to survive out here.
Luula: That's one angry arthropod.
Havmi: Kill it! Kill it now! I hate beetles!
Luula: We don't have any weapons! Plus, this beetle's magnitude is unprecedented. It's our best specimen!
Havmi: A valid point. All right, I'll go fetch help. You stay here to observe it.
Luula: Wait! Why do I have to stay here?
Havmi: No time! Take notes; see what it does!
Event end
Havmi: At least we'll return with several samples.
Luula: No, we won't. We forgot our equipment back at camp.
Havmi: Ah! Curse our burning eagerness.
Luula: Right. Burning. As in, our skin. Shall we head back? I think we've baked out here long enough.


  • While the map announces that the Giant Beetle has appeared in Challenger Cliffs, the event itself takes place in Uplands Oasis. However, you need to travel through Challenger Cliffs to reach the event. If you have Path of Fire and a Springer mount, you can hop up to the event area from the Vine Bridge Waypoint.
  • While Luula stays for the event, she does not contribute in any way to it.
  • The event does not end when the Sandstorm ends. If finished after the sandstorm, the event will contribute towards Favor of the Zephyrites on the map.
Though rare, this event has failed to spawn despite T5+ Favor of the Zephyrites having been achieved in the map instance. No prompt appears across your screen and the event is absent.
