City in the Sands is the third part of The Mystery of the Masterclassers quest line. It is a gold-purchasable boss quest and can be purchased from the Quest Shop for 600 gold.

Void Skull Swarm's HP (2000) makes this a long quest, and its strength multiplier (3) and rage bar (25) make this a very difficult(+) quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in over 4 weeks, but if the rage bar fills (especially repeatedly) it may take considerably longer. The very high difficulty means missed Dailies will cause higher amounts of damage to the group; having a Healer in the party is highly recommended.

Description[edit | edit source]

As night unfurls over the scorching sands of the Timewastes, your guides @AnnDeLune, @Kiwibot, and @Katy133 lead you forward. Some bleached pillars poke from the shadowed dunes, and as you approach them, a strange skittering sound echoes across the seemingly-abandoned expanse..

“Invisible creatures!” says the April Fool, clearly covetous. “Oho! Just imagine the possibilities. This must be the work of a truly stealthy Rogue.”

“A Rogue who could be watching us,” says Lady Glaciate, dismounting and raising her spear. “If there’s a head-on attack, try not to irritate our opponent. I don’t want a repeat of the volcano incident.”

He beams at her. “But it was one of your most resplendent rescues.”

To your surprise, Lady Glaciate turns very pink at the compliment. She hastily stomps away to examine the ruins.

“Looks like the wreck of an ancient city,” says @AnnDeLune. “I wonder what…”

Before she can finish her sentence, a portal roars open in the sky. Wasn’t that magic supposed to be nearly impossible here? The hoofbeats of the invisible animals thunder as they flee in panic, and you steady yourself against the onslaught of shrieking skulls that flood the skies.

Objective(s)[edit | edit source]

Defeat the Void Skull Swarm.

On Completion[edit | edit source]

The April Fool surprises the final skull with a spray of sand, and it blunders backwards into Lady Glaciate, who smashes it expertly. As you catch your breath and look up, you see a single flash of someone’s silhouette moving on the other side of the closing portal. Thinking quickly, you snatch up the amulet from the chest of previously-possessed items, and sure enough, it’s drawn towards the unseen person. Ignoring the shouts of alarm from Lady Glaciate and the April Fool, you leap through the portal just as it snaps shut, plummeting into an inky swath of nothingness.
