The area contains 3 small groups (swarms) of undead. The stream of undead that charge towards the wardens is not one of these swarms. There is an infinite number of undead in this stream, so ignore it and go around. A short distance to the south is the real first swarm. Once you have defeated the first swarm, you get an update to the second swarm, located further south. The third and last swarm is indicated on the defeat of the second swarm, in the grove. Neither the second or third swarms actually spawn until prior swarms have been defeated. On the defeat of the third swarm, Herboza the Wretched spawns. You get to hear her screams as she approaches. Put an end to her misery and the quest is done.







Upon approaching Tegwen:

Tegwen: Firstborn, it is an honor to see you again.
Trahearne: Tegwen, Carys. I am glad to see you both, but I come with urgent news. You are needed.
Carys: It's Orr again, isn't it? Oh, no. What's happened now?

Speaking with Tegwen (cinematic):

Tegwen: After we saved our village, Carys and I felt the call to continue fighting against Orr. It has become our Wyld Hunt.
Trahearne: A proud duty. Tegwen, I'm sure you remember the mirror that washed up on the beach near the village of Annwen?
Tegwen: I remember it. I also remember how its magic forced me into Orr...and the terrors I saw in that dark land.
Carys: I didn't like Orr at all. It felt like Zhaitan's teeth were closing around me the whole time we were there. But we're safe here, right?
<Character name>: I'm sorry, Carys, but that's no longer true. Zhaitan has attacked Lion's Arch. Claw Island has fallen and the city may be next.
Carys: Oh, no! Oh, tumbling turnips, Lion's Arch? It can't be...
Trahearne: Tegwen, you and Carys have seen the dragon's evil firsthand. We need you to be part of the Durmand Priory's effort to save the city.
Tegwen: Trahearne, I want to help, but we have duties here. There's a champion of Zhaitan in this swamp, and we've sworn to destroy her.
<Character name>: Then we'll help. We'll enter the swamp with you and clear it out for good.

Talking to your allies:

Trahearne: We will have to destroy Herboza the Wretched if we want Tegwen and Carys to join our cause.
Talk end option tango.png Then that's what we'll do.
Tegwen: Hello, <Character name>. What can I do for you?
Talk more option tango.png What can you tell me about Herboza the Wretched?
She was revived as a new, vile type of undead. If we don't stop her, she'll invade the forest.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png We'll find a way to defeat her.
Talk more option tango.png How do you know Trahearne?
Trahearne is my mentor. He has taught me much about the Orrians — and how to kill them.
Talk back option tango.png I have more questions.
Talk end option tango.png That will come in handy.
Talk end option tango.png Nothing at the moment. We'll speak more later.
Carys: What can I do for you?
Talk more option tango.png Who was Herboza the Wretched?
She was once an explorer, sworn to cross the Caledon to find the far end of the continent. She failed.
Talk more option tango.png And now she's enslaved to Orr?
The Risen discovered her body in this swamp, and by the dragon's will, they reanimated it into his service. Disgusting.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png We'll return her to the grave.
Talk more option tango.png How do you know Trahearne?
Trahearne studies Orr. Tegwen learned to fight the Risen from him.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png We'll need your fighting skills.
Talk end option tango.png Nothing at the moment. I'll talk to you later.

After the final swarm of undead is defeated (cinematic):

Carys: Listen! Do you hear that? It's their master—Zhaitan's lieutenant. She's the one that drives these attacks.
Carys: Her name is Herboza the Wretched, and she's quite creepy. Mold-in-your-mouth creepy. Once she's defeated, the undead will scatter.
<Character name>: Ready your weapons! That scream is getting closer.

After defeating Herboza the Wretched (cinematic):

Trahearne: Farewell, Herboza. May your spirit find rest in the Mists.
Carys: The Mists, which are far from the dragon. Very, very far. Lucky Herboza, really!
Tegwen: Thank you for aiding us. At last, I feel the abatement of my Wyld Hunt's call. The danger here is over.
<Character name>: Tegwen, you and Carys have seen what Zhaitan can do firsthand. We need you, and those like you, to come and fight.
Tegwen: Ever since our first journey into Orr, sylvari from the Caledon Forest have sought us out, wanting to defeat Zhaitan.
Tegwen: You fought with them today. They're a stalwart group, and loyal. If Carys and I aid you, they'll come as well.
<Character name>: A unit of battle-trained sylvari with experience in Orr? What more could we ask for? Thank you. We'll see you in Lion's Arch.
Trahearne: I'm concerned. The Orrians are entrenched. It will be incredibly difficult to regain Claw Island.
<Character name>: We can't give up hope, Trahearne.
Trahearne: I haven't lost hope. In fact, I'm counting on hope to lead the way. I feel that we should ask for wisdom from the Pale Tree.
Trahearne: If anyone knows how to defeat Zhaitan, it is the Mother. Meet me at the Grove, and we'll speak with her before the battle.

Talking to your allies:

Trahearne: Herboza the Wretched was an example of Zhaitan's most vicious power: to steal and corrupt our myths.
Talk more option tango.png How do you mean?
The norn searched for Herboza's body for many years. They never found it. It will cause sorrow to learn of her fate.
Talk end option tango.png A least now we can tell them she is at rest.
Carys: Now that Herboza's threat is over, we can help you, <Character name>.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you.
Tegwen: I look forward to helping you. Perhaps fighting those creatures attacking Lion's Arch will quell the nightmares...
Talk end option tango.png I hope so.

My story[edit]

Undead Infestation.jpg

I spoke with Tegwen and her friend, Carys, about the fall of Claw Island. Because of a cursed mirror, they'd both seen the ravages of Orr first-hand, and they were very willing to come and assist the Priory.

My story


Sometimes Harboza fails to spawn, in which case players must leave the instance and re-start the mission.
