Notes

Back to the southwest. Krik'thik drones and acidslingers are swarming the barricades. Mount one of the Dragon Launchers. They have one ability:

  • Dragon Cannon 30-200 yd range — Launches a rocket at the targeted location, dealing 0 Fire damage and knocking enemies back from the point of impact. 1.5 sec cast. Deals 430,000-460,000 Fire damage.

The cannons can one-shot all of the mobs in its targeting circle, so take as many as possible. The cannon does not have a cooldown.

Once the fiftieth mantid has been slain, a cutscene pulls the camera out to the battlefield to show Norvakess, the terror of the Dread Wastes, coming out of the ground!

Taoshi says: Looks like we have our work cut out for us...

Speak to Taoshi, a yard from the player, to continue.
