Explorer Byonn: You've done admirable work to crack the Bramble, friend. Now we just need to find a way do
some test of your herbicide.
Explorer Jekka: We can't afford to leave this camp undefended, but a small unit could make it to the Bramble's main stem.
Sage Zende: The main stem is too close to the last pylon. Perhaps we can get volunteers to help. Regardless, I must get there.
Scholar Morrat: Aha, volunteers. Maybe without the magister knowing?
Explorer Jekka: She thinks we're here while associates carry out our theory. Clever thinking.
Sage Zende: Open the offshoots, and force apart the main stalk.


  • All three offshoots must be done simultaneously to continue.
  • Standing on top of the offshoots will prevent any interruption from surrounding AOE
The event can break if players rush ahead after the 2nd bramble vine is cleared. A bramble wall will grow in the tunnel to the pylon, which cannot be destroyed by spraying Bramble Begone, blocking players from progressing the event.
