These are the expected rewards for a level 31 player. Higher level players receive dynamically adjusted rewards.





Occasionally, Commander Neal and the Ebon Vanguard Warriors that accompany him never spawn outside of Forlorn Hope, or they get stuck in Blackwing Excavation, which causes multiple problems. Tahiri and her team are unable to leave Sapper's Delve, the event to defend Sapper's Delve cannot occur, and the Vanguard cannot be used to progress through the Ogre Wars meta event.


Event starts
Scout Leader Tahiri: All right, time to evict the ogres. Saruko, get the door. We're hitting them hard and fast.
Vanguard Scout Saruko: Finally, something to blow up!
Scout Leader Tahiri: Alessandra, you're on fire support duty.
Vanguard Scout Alessandra: Understood. Just give me the signal and keep your heads down. It'll get loud.
Scout Leader Tahiri: Max, do what you do best. Ankles and knees.
During the event
Vanguard Scout Alessandra: If you need a little help, grab a marker from me and I'll support you from afar.
Once the Sherog the Cruel is dead
Scout Leader Tahiri: Saruko, see if you can open up the back door for me. I'll go pay our other hosts a visit.
With all three veterans dead
Scout Leader Tahiri: The leaders are dead. Keep pushing until the camp is ours.
When the camp is captured
Scout Leader Tahiri: The ogres will be back. Saruko, get some defenses up. Let's give the ogres a hostile welcome.
Vanguard Scout Saruko: Yes, ma'am!
Scout Leader Tahiri: Time to bring in the garrison. Signal the reinforcements, Alesssandra.
Vanguard Scout Alessandra: Will do. (fires a signal flare)
Vanguard Scout Alessandra: Well that was certainly exciting.
Vanguard Scout Saruko: Sure. How about next time I get to be the one who hangs around safe in the back.
Scout Leader Tahiri: Sounds like Max wants in on more of the action.
Vanguard Scout Alessandra: He's just looking for more of a challenge.
When Commander Neal arrives
Scout Leader Tahiri: Sounds like the boys are here. Let's go.
Scout Leader Tahiri: Welcome to Sapper's Delve, Commander Neal.
Commander Neal: Excellent work once again, Tahiri. You and your troops are to be commended.
Scout Leader Tahiri: Just doing our jobs, sir.
Commander Neal: And a fine job it is. Consider yourselves relieved. Get some rest. We'll take it from here.
Scout Leader Tahiri: We'll be ready if you need us again. Troops, you heard the commander. We are dismissed.
