Escort Demolitionist Folke to the Eastern Maw. When the Demolitionist's health reaches zero, he will be stunned for a long duration, before recovering a portion of his health when he recovers.

Doing the previous event will make this event easier to accomplish. Folke will attack any hostile NPCs he encounters, notably Elite Forged Officers and Forged Cannons. Both can do significant damage and take time to kill, delaying his arrival at the portal. Eliminating them in the previous event will mean facing less and weaker enemies.

Furthermore, though not required in said preceding event, destroying Forged Barricades will allow the demolitionist to get to the portal faster. Not all need be destroyed; only the ones that prevent him from taking the most direct route to the portal. Barricades can be destroyed in both this and the previous event, but doing so when this event is already underway will eat up time.

In order to deploy Portal Spikes to damage the portal, you will need to do the following:






Event start
Watcher Fransen: The portals are activating early. It's time for your bombing run!
Watcher Fransen: Time to spoke the portal and block the Forged reinforcements from arriving.
Demolitionist Folke: Whether I've got an escort or not, I need to go now if I'm going to have any chance to close the portal!
Watcher Fransen: It's up to you now. Shut down that portal!
Demolitionist Folke: Send anyone you can to cover me. We'll shut that portal down!
Watcher Fransen: Run like Wolf, Brother! Send those Forged back to the Realm of Torment.
Demolitionist Folke: No better time than now. Let's go!
During event
Watcher Fransen: My demolitionist brother needs protection. He's heading to close the portal at the Maw.
Demolitionist Folke: Try to keep up. I need you to clear the way to the Maw so I can jam this on the portal.
Demolitionist Folke: Forged are coming through he portal. We need to close it!
Demolitionist Folke: We're getting close. This is going to be good.
Demolitionist Folke: Cover me while I close the portal.
Demolitionist Folke: If you can keep the Forged off me, I can close the portal.
Demolitionist Folke: Keep the Forged back.
Demolitionist Folke: I need protection!
Demolitionist Folke: Get these Forged off me!
Demolitionist Folke: Three easy steps: defeat Forged, gather essence, and spike the portal!
Demolitionist Folke: You can help close the portal by using the essence that drops from these Forged.
After successful destruction of the portal
Demolitionist Folke: That should do it. One spiked portal.
Demolitionist Folke: That Forged is keeping the portal open!
After killing Elite Realm Keeper
Demolitionist Folke: Damn! We couldn't shut the portal down in time!
Demolitionist Folke: Forged reinforcements incoming. We should get out of here!
