Invoking the Serpent
- Arikara defeated
I am familiar with these artifacts. I believe that they were brought here by Magatha Grimtotem herself. But she's not amongst the Grimtotem on Darkcloud Pinnacle. She disappeared right after she arrived, and no one knows where she is now.
Maybe we can find out.
Only by subduing Arikara will you discover where Magatha Grimtotem is hiding.
So, she's been taken prisoner by the Twilight's Hammer. I can't say that I feel sorry for her, but she might prove even more dangerous in their hands.
Exit the cave, cross the bridge, take a left. Atin the center of Arikara's Needle, use the artifacts. She is a level 43 elite wind serpent with 10984 health. Her primary ability is Lightning Bolt, which hits for ~140 Nature. Every 20% or so, a Grimtotem Spirit will spawn, applying Ancestral Fortitude to Arikara, shielding it for 100% of damage taken. Kill it to drop the shield, then keep working Arikara down. Aggro:
- Arikara yells: Thank you for the gifts. Let us see if you are worthy, <class>!
- Feralas Sentinel says: The creature is gaining power from the ancestral Grimtotem! We must put them to rest if we are to defeat the beast!
- Freewind Brave says: The creature is gaining power from the ancestral Grimtotem! We must put them to rest if we are to defeat the beast!
- Arikara yells: Stop! You have bested my wind serpent.
- Arikara yells: I have been taken prisoner by the Twilight's Hammer.
- Arikara yells: I'm not certain where. Start with their western base overlooking Highperch.
- Feralas Sentinel says: Farewell for now.
- Freewind Brave says: Farewell for now.
