Dunka: There are rumors of Rata Novus artifacts around here. I shall discover them.
Dunka: The Inquest have heard the rumors as well, and they're nosing about.
Dunka: Many Rata Novus devices are powered by ley energy.
Dunka: If we can locate and activate them, we may be able to use them against Mordremoth.
Dunka: This is Inquest. There's power ahead. Dangerous power. Give me a second to remove it.
Dunka: This is the place. If my notes are accurate—and they are—there should be a device nearby at the top of this chamber.
Dunka: Get in there, smash collectors, climb up to the top, put the energy in the device, and we'll be good to go.
Dunka: If the chak are causing you trouble, just avoid them. It can't be so hard to bring back the energy.
Dunka: That's doing just the trick. Keep bringing the energy to the device.
Dunka: Hurry! We haven't got all day! Yes, it's dangerous, but keep bringing the energy!
Dunka: I wonder what power we'll unlock once we've completed this?
Dunka: We must name this place. Something suitably epic, yet displaying my genius.
Event success
Dunka: Fantastic! The powered device seems to have driven the chak away.
Dunka: Now we must discover what that device actually does. Try interacting with it.
Dunka: I'm sure to be in the books for this one. Your help was... sufficient. Yeah, sufficient.


Event scaling will increase the number of orbs required without increasing the number or frequency of energy orbs spawned, effectively making completion of the event impossible when more than a certain number of players is present
