Objectives Edit

Place the trapped meat in the western end[50.8, 85.2]
of the Alabaster Shelf.

Provided item: Inv misc food 69 [Trapped Basilisk Meat]

Description Edit

You must set the trap for the matriarch now.

Go to the western end of the Alabaster Shelf and place the trapped basilisk meat in the center of the feeding ground.

Progress Edit

It seems like the trap will work on Abyssion.

Completion Edit

Well done, <name>. Here's to hoping the trap performs as well when we try it on Abyssion.

Rewards Edit

You will receive:

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

Inv pants mail 41
[Trapspring Leggings]
Inv misc cape cataclysm melee b 01
[Bait-Stained Drape]
Inv jewelry necklace 47
[Soulbind Choker]

Notes Edit

Quite literally the southwestern end of the shelf . There's a big blood-stained area behind a crystal formation with lots of carcasses and such. Use the Trapped Basilisk Meat there. The Matriarch will fly in and get trapped.

You hear rustling of heavy wings in the distance. The matriarch approaches!
The Stonescale Matriarch is snared! Avoid her attacks by staying on the move!

She has two attacks:

  • Spell fire windsofwoe  [Sand Breath]ω ϖ Melee range—Inflicts Arcane damage to enemies in a cone in front of the caster, reducing their movement and increasing their time between attacks for 10 sec. 3.5 sec cast
  • Inv stone 15  [Stone Spike]ω ϖ 60 yd range—Launches a spike at the target, causing physical damage. 1.75 sec cast

This is going to be a very hit-and-run fight. Try to attack from range with quick abilities, but keep moving! The matriarch does take 3000 damage every few seconds just by virtue of being snared, but she must have someone on her aggro table or she will disappear.
