Walkthrough[edit]

Your objective is to lure hostile devourers into the portal in front of Gorrik marked with the Gorrik Portal.png icon. To do that, pick up the Patented Pheromone Recycler 2.0. Your cast bar will change to 3 skills. Use Extraction Bold (skill 1) on hostile devourers to make them drop a Devourer Pheromone Sac. Then pick it up from the ground, which will charge Pheromone Spray (skill 2). Next, spray a hostile devourer. The spray fires in a small cone in front of you, so you can spray a small group of devourers if they are close together. That will make them friendly for a short amount of time and they will follow you. Lead them to the portal. You can use Rush (skill 3) to gain Swiftness.

The event starts 20 minutes after Vaolt Sharpstrike was defeated.

Dialogue[edit]

If Gorrik is present[edit]

Before the event starts
Erasmus Fangstorm: Hey! You one of those outsiders? What're you doing on our land?
Gorrik: Oh! Don't mind me. Had a few hours, figured I'd get in some pickup research.
Erasmus Fangstorm: Research on what? Dung?
Gorrik: Ha! Clearly you haven't read Scholar Vib's twelve-volume treatise on the subject. Quite definitive.
Erasmus Fangstorm: Okay.
Gorrik: Actually, I'm most curious about the local devourer population. An especially invasive species.
Erasmus Fangstorm: They're invasive, all right! Invaded these very paddocks once too many.
Gorrik: And that is exactly what I'm hoping for! Now, we wait.
Event start
Gorrik: OHMYGOSH! There they are! They're beautiful!
Erasmus Fangstorm: They're vermin! And they're going after my cattle!
Gorrik: Not a problem. Just lure them to this teleporter. I'll get a quick scan, then poof! Back to where they came from!
Gorrik: How do you lure them? Good question. First, give them a zap with this pheromone extraction device.
Gorrik: They'll drop a pheromone sac, and you can use it to trick them into thinking you're one of the hive. Temporarily.
Erasmus Fangstorm: Okay, well, you can use your pheromone whatever-it-is, but I'm gonna use my service rifle.
Event success
Erasmus Fangstorm: All right, that's all of 'em. Thanks.
Gorrik: I'm glad we were able to save your cattle AND gather these valuable scans.
Erasmus Fangstorm: Sure. Just...leave my cattle out of your little experiments from now on.
Gorrik: Fine, fine. Good day to you.
Event fail
Erasmus Fangstorm: Aah! My cattle! Bangar's gonna have my head for this.
Gorrik: I, uh...apologize for your—I mean, I'm sorry for your loss.

If Gorrik is absent[edit]

Before the event starts
Erasmus Fangstorm: Hey! You one of those outsiders? What're you doing on our land?
Researcher: Oh, hello! Just a little field research. Oh, hope you don't mind.
Erasmus Fangstorm: Research on what? Dung?
Researcher: Something like that. Squint and you won't even notice I'm here.
Erasmus Fangstorm: Okay.
Researcher: Kidding. I'm here to study the local devourer population. Such an invasive species.
Erasmus Fangstorm: They're invasive, all right! Invaded these very paddocks once too many.
Researcher: That's what I like to hear.
Event start
Researcher: Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.
Erasmus Fangstorm: They're vermin! And they're going after my cattle!
Researcher: Oh! Lure them to this teleporter; I'll just take a quick scan and pop them right back home!
Researcher: First you'll want to give them an itty-bitty zap with this pheromone-extraction device.
Researcher: They'll drop a pheromone sac you can use to trick them into thinking you're one of the hive. For a little while, anyway.
Erasmus Fangstorm: Okay, well, you can use your pheromone whatever-it-is, but I'm gonna use my service rifle.
Event success
Erasmus Fangstorm: All right, that's all of 'em. Thanks.
Researcher: You're very welcome! Gorrik's hard to please, but I think he's going to be absolutely thrilled with these scans.
Erasmus Fangstorm: Sure. Just...leave my cattle out of your little experiments from now on.
Researcher: As you wish.
Event fail
Erasmus Fangstorm: Aah! My cattle! Bangar's gonna have my head for this.
Researcher: Mine too, I'm guessing.
