Slay the octovine! is a level 80 events that occur near the westgate during the Battle in Tarir map meta-event.



Primary article: Battle in Tarir

To make the octovine vulnerable, players step into the green gassy circle at the start (near the skritt) and transform into a Sporeling. They then need to make their way to the octovine and explode under it, with each explosion removing 1 of the 15 layers of slime. The mushrooms are slow and very vulnerable: a single hit will knock players out of the transformation. The room also spawns enemies that will actively hunt down mushrooms.

Transformed players can choose to go straight across the room, avoiding Stoneheads and Triggerblossoms by using  Cap Hop.png Jump and gliding over these immediate hazards. Alternatively, they can take a safer path along the room's edges, using the Speed Boost Mushrooms and jumping onto the walls.

Enchanted Armors need to control enemies to keep them away from transformed players. Kill Mordrem Breachers that spawn these enemies.
