These are the expected rewards for a level 80 player.


Escort Demolitionist Sola to the Western 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. Sola 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 Bosede: Forged reinforcements will be coming out of that portal soon.
Demolitionist Sola: It's now or never. I have to make a break for for the portal.
Watcher Bosede: You're all set. Good luck, and may Kormir guide you.
Event in progress
Demolitionist Sola: Follow me. Help me make it to the Maw so I can use this portal spike.
Demolitionist Sola: Just make sure I get to the Maw.
Elite Forged Officer: Secure the area!
Demolitionist Sola: I'm barely hangin on here. Help!
Elite Forged Officer: Hold the area until reinforcements arrive.
Demolitionist Sola: Get these Forged off me!
Elite Forged Officer: Watch for enemy activity.
Demolitionist Sola: Spread out and keep alert. I'll stay on the portal.
Demolitionist Sola: Cover me. Don't let anything get through.
Demolitionist Sola: The portal's still pretty strong.
Event in progress (Watcher Bosede at her outpost)
Watcher Bosede: We could use a hand. The Demolitionist needs to get to the Maw and close the portal.
Watcher Bosede: Time to prepare this portal spike.
Watcher Bosede: Here's the shaft, and the essence. Couple it together, and it's ready for use.
Watcher Bosede: I hope my demolitionist makes it back. Things are already hard enough as it is.
Upon destroying the portal
Demolitionist Sola: Mission accomplished. The portal is closed!
Demolitionist Sola: That keeper's golding the portal open. We have to defeat it!
Event failure
Demolitionist Sola: No! We couldn't close the portal in time!
Demolitionist Sola: Forged forces are arriving. Retreat!
