Wicoessa is wanting to excavate some underwater ruins in Oceanus Hesperos. However there are sharks in the area that make it impossible for her to do.

Wicoessa will ask you to do this for her. The ruins are underwater at 12k, 3k. You will need swim down to the 4 pillars and /excavate near the loose stones. The pilliars can be found at loc=12k,3k, loc= 22k,27k, loc=1k,31k, and loc=18k, 25k. Careful when near these areas you will be attacked by sharks.

the locs given seem ok
but at every ecavation site are 4 mobs (blue up to ora for 50) that add you at nearsight.
only way to do this is pull tehm far away go on an island and later do the ecavations.. everything other would be frenzy

Hi, Perhaps there is a bug in the quest as i can only dig up 2 of the pristine ruins. The many of the /excavate commands i do at the various sites only yeal rubble.

I went to 12k, 3k and excavated all 4 pristines there and didn't get aggro from anything whatsoever. Took a total of about 5 minutes to do and was about the easiest and most profitable quest I've done.

this quest is no longer soloable, there are several sharks, eels and rays at each location. They will only attack the person doing the quest. I did it a while back with my necro unbotted, this time i took my cleric out to suit him up. It was crazy, i have died three times because of all the agro in my cleric. You may need at least three peeps. 12-21-30
Stuck in Iraq... SEND MORE SKOAL!!

the excavation site at 12K, 3K had only one hammerhead shark aggro. i just excavated between spawns and killed him when he popped. One retreat when i was attacked while excavating. Got all 4 pristines solo at this spot.

And its still this way too. I was unlucky however. It took me over an hour to get 4. Try moving to different areas around this ruin. maybe better luck?

Here's a hint for soloers:

I didn't have to go to all 4 excavation sites.. One of the ones I tried to go to had continual aggro, so we decided to go to another one. I went to the one at around 12k/3k (site 3) and just kept /excavating, got the 4 ruins I needed, and finished the quest. :)

When giving trash artifacts to Aroecca, keep in mind that he will only take four or five from you. Give him your most valuable artifacts first.

Go to Excavation Site 4. Usually you will get 2 sharks that aggro when you approach. *** soon as they start moving toward you, swim back up and get on the island. You can then draw them around to the opposite side of the island and /excavate in peace.
