A Startling Starry Idea is a quest with a boss called the Asteroidea. Defeating this boss will unlock the BlackPearl Magic Hatching Potion. The quest scroll can be purchased from the Quest Shop for 4 gems.

The Asteroidea's HP (725) makes this a medium length quest and its strength multiplier (1.75) make this an easy quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in between two and three weeks.

Description

You’ve been feeling uninspired lately, so when @jjgame83 suggests a trip to Lively Lake, you jump at the chance for a change of scenery. As @QuartzFox lays out a picnic on the shore, you find something glinting in the shallows. A strange black pearl.

“I wish I had a new idea,” you sigh.

A chill washes over the shore. The lake turns to black ink. The stars rise as noon becomes midnight in a heartbeat.

“Those aren’t good signs,” says @PixelStormArt.

A towering mass of arms bursts from the lake in a spray of foam, and from its beak, it booms: “BEHOLD ASTEROIDEA, THE IDEA FROM BEYOND THE STARS!”

A tentacle slams down onto the picnic basket. Good idea or not, you leap into action.

Objective(s)

Defeat the Asteroidea.

On Completion

As you batter and blast the beastie, it sheds black pearls across the sands. Their glistening surfaces catch your eye as you dodge another smashing tentacle.

You may be in mortal peril, but you can’t help thinking of how beautifully they glimmer. Then you can’t help thinking that this is a terrible time for a new potion idea.

Suddenly the monster freezes. @jjgame83 and @PixelStormArt exchange baffled looks and lower their weapons.

“YOU HAVE YOUR WISH, MORTAL. MY WORK IS DONE.”

Asteroidea vanishes, and the sky and waters clear. @QuartzFox stares at you. “Care to explain?”

You try your best, and together you fill the picnic basket with black pearls. An afternoon of alchemy later, you have to admit it was a pretty good idea.
