This mission has a 10 minute time limit, however, killing a boss adds 60 seconds to the timer. 30 seconds after the mission timer starts, Azukhan Stonewrath spawns in the north-west. After 1 minute, Froth Stonereap spawns in the north-east. After 1 minute 30 seconds, Ennsa Stoneweaver spawns in the southwest. After 2 minutes, Dorn Stonebreaker spawns in the southeast. Each boss respawns 5 minutes after being killed.

There are two types of amber to collect, both of which add 1 point to the total score when picked up. Raw Amber Chunks are dropped when an enemy is killed (bosses drop 4). Refined Amber Chunks randomly spawn on the ground.

Skill recommendations[edit]

Consider bringing speed stances or shouts to quickly move around. Also consider bringing AoE ( Area of Effect) and DoT (Damage over Time) characters to assist with the multiple enemies
