Help the cubs defeat illusory foes to build warband cohesion is a level 80 event that occurs in The Wardowns. The goal is to help solidify the teamwork of a warband of cubs.


  • Lady Kasmeer Meade
  • Event bar.jpg Event shield (tango icon).png
  • Warband cohesion (reappears for each wave)
  • Event bar empty2.jpg
  • Cubs remaining: :[sic] x (of 5)


If you were at the previous event in Tribunes' Trench, you can take Kasmeer's Portal to get to the starting location of this event in The Wardowns.

The cubs are fairly self-sufficient, but the best way to keep the enemies away from them (for the Under Her Wing achievement) is to hold aggro at a spot slightly away from Kasmeer. The cubs' health bars do not appear on the event sidebar in the UI, so be careful. When she summons the enemies, they will appear in a stack somewhat ahead on the trail. At this time, you can drop lots of AoE on them to damage them en masse. You can also use skills which push or pull enemies to move them away from the cubs. Be wary of dangerous enemies like the Branded Hydra or the Mordrem, who can harm the cubs via AoE even if you have aggro.

Right before the start of the event after exiting Kasmeer's portal
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Remember: Out here, you aren't Blood Legion or Flame Legion. You're one warband, fighting together.
Kaia: You heard her soldiers, move out!
After taking the portal, first wave (Ascalonian ghosts)
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Ascalonian ghosts! Your ancestors fought them, your parents fought them; now it's your turn.
Nidia: Don't worry, we'll help! One warband, together!
Second wave (Zhaitan minions - Risen)
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Not all dragons are as well-meaning as Aurene. Zhaitan's minions showed no mercy. Neither should you.
Third wave (Mordremoth minions - Mordrem)
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Hear that? Mordremoth's minions are growing all around you.
Fourth wave (Kralkatorrik minions - Branded)
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Kralkatorrik destroyed so much. Wiped out entire villages. Separated families—Stand strong. Stand together.
Fifth wave (Primordus minions - Destroyers; Jormag minions - Icebrood)
Lady Kasmeer Meade: You've defeated every foe the charr have ever fought, but you need to be ready for what the future still holds.
On losing a cub
One of:
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Don't worry, tactical retreat is nothing to be ashamed of. Wait for us by the keep.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Looks like you still need some practice, little one. See you back at the fahrar.
On failure
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Looks like we bit off too much this time. Let's head back to the keep.
