The event occurs on various levels below the Ground Zero Waypoint and will occur three times if successful. The Jade can be either a Champion Jade Armor or a Champion Jade Bow that spawn in no particular order, but at least one of each will appear. Players must defeat the Jade Construct, either the Jade Armor or Jade Bow, before it drains the Bloodstone Stalagmite nearby.

There are typically many White Mantle foes present when the Jade arrives. Killing them appears to reduce the drain speed on the Bloodstone Stalagmite as well as weaken the Jade (the damage to the Jade appears to increase dramatically as the number of White Mantle decrease). It's best to wipe out the White Mantle on arrival before engaging the Jade, and assign a small group of players (no more than 5 or so) to watch for them when they respawn and kill them off again. The zerg should also target and kill any random White Mantle that appear near them to help the team killing the spawns further away. When the larger White Mantle spawns are eliminated, the roving White Mantle team should rejoin the zerg.

The White Mantle typically respawn at least once when the Jade is at about half life. It may also be on a timer, but respawns are to be watched for. Killing the ones nearest the Bloodstone Stalagmite/Jade first may be best, but the fewer there are inside the battle zone, the better.

It's important to keep the vast majority of players engaging the Jade. Too many players killing White Mantle will drop the damage on the Jade below what's necessary to kill it in time. High crowd control is advised to quickly break the Jade enemies' defiance bar.
