Defeat Aeosera.

Provided item: Inv hammer 09 [Stonework Mallet]


On the western edge of the Pale Roost, you will find a resonating crystal. Strike it with the mallet and the broodmother will come.

Be ready for battle. I will be there to aid you, but she will not be easily overcome.

("Aeosera, Broodmother of the Stone Drakes.")


This broodmother has taken wing for over these stone drakes for nearly 300 years. She is quite strong, even for a stone dragon.


Impressive, fleshling. You are far more capable than I initially assumed.

I will extend that sentiment to the Stonemother as well.


You will receive:

You will also be able to choose one of the following:

Inv chest cloth cataclysm b 01
[Stonescale Robes]
Inv shoulder 149
[Terrath's Rocky Spaulders]
Inv sword 1h cataclysm b 02
[Dragonsaw Boneblade]


Fly west to find the resonating crystal. Bang on it and Terrath will come and throw the player up to some floating rocks!

Terrath the Steady yells: The broodmother flies above us! Do not fear, fleshling. I am called "The Steady" for a reason...
Jump from rock to rock to attract the attention of the Broodmother!

Jump up the stairway of rocks by right-clicking on them to reach a "plateau" of rocks all floating at the same height. Keep jumping about until...

The Stone Dragon Broodmother approaches.

Aeosera has one ability:

  • Spell fire rune  [Searing Breath]ω ϖ (1 second cast) 60 yd range—Sears the target rock with flame, causing Fire damage to any enemy nearby.

Aeosera will target the rock the player is standing on, then cast searing breath at it. At the end of the cast, the rock is destroyed!

  • This rock is about to fall! Jump to another!

So... attack quickly and keep moving. Every now and then, selected boulders gain one of two abilities:

  • Spell holy sealofrighteousness  [Crystalline Surge]ω ϖ—A pocket of earth energy envelops nearby units, increasing damage by 50%. Lasts 20 sec. Green glow.
  • Spell holy powerwordbarrier  [Crystalline Barrier]ω ϖ—A crystalline barrier forms around the resonating stone, causing nearby allies to take 50% less damage and regenerate 5% of their maximum health every second. Lasts 20 sec. Gold glow. Also regenerates mana for mana-using classes.

She has 375k+ health and will submit after getting knocked down to 40,000 health or so.

The Stone Dragon Broodmother bows her head in surrender.
Terrath the Steady yells: She submits. Well done, fleshling.

This concludes Terrath's chain. Head all the way to the east to complete Rocky Upheaval.
