Event pre
Krewe Researcher Inja: We should have golems.
Krewe Leader Dobbs: I said, no!
Krewe Leader Dobbs: As I've explained at length and repeatedly, we'll be fine.
Krewe Researcher Inja: Fine? What is fine about walking into a swarm of undead?
Krewe Leader Dobbs: Listen, the undead aren't smart enough to outwit this krewe.
Krewe Researcher Inja: I still say we should have brought some golems along.
Krewe Apprentice Pekk: What about—
Krewe Leader Dobbs: Not now, Pekk. Golems would only have slowed us down.
Krewe Apprentice Pekk: You know, we could—
Krewe Researcher Inja: Shut up, Pekk. I maintain that golems would have minimized the risk of this mission.
Krewe Leader Dobbs: No golems. That's final. End of discussion.
Event starts
Reaching the first dig location
Krewe Leader Dobbs: Set up a camp here. This will be Excavation Site 1.
After defeating the four waves at the first location
Krewe Leader Dobbs: Excellent. On to the next area.
Upon reaching the second location
Krewe Leader Dobbs: This will do as another excavation site. Building time.
After defeating the six waves at the second location
Krewe Leader Dobbs: Superb. We're set. On to the next area.
Reaching the third location after defeating the Veteran Risen Abomination
Krewe Leader Dobbs: We'll construct the main base of operations here. So get to constructing things.
Event completion
Krewe Leader Dobbs: Excellent. Now on to our real work.


  • Krewe Leader Dobbs starts walking from near Gyre Rapids waypoint when the event is about to begin, but the event itself begins from near Researcher Raekk.
  • When the event starts the Rankor Ruins Waypoint will become contested.
  • Two collection items can be bought from the merchants that spawn after the success of this event: the Stein of Ancient Dwarven Ale and the Ancient Stone Summit Shoulder Spike. When the event is bugged, the ale can still be bought from the trading post as it is non-bound. The Shoulder Spike cannot be obtained any other way.
Players report that it does not properly reset sometimes after the failure of Defend Rankor Ruins from the Undead, and suggest entering the map when the zone is full or immediately after a patch to get the reset version of this event. This was reportedly fixed on 2016-07-27, but still appears to be bugged as of 2016-09-18.
