Stop the Overshadowing Stress is the second part of the Lunar Battle equipment quest line. It is a boss quest with a boss called Overshadowing Stress, and it can be unlocked by checking in to Habitica 22 times. Once unlocked, additional copies of the scroll can be purchased for 4 gems from the Quest Shop.

Overshadowing Stress's HP (100) makes this a short quest and its strength multiplier (1.5) makes this an easy quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in less than a week. This quest is recommended for lower level (less than level 25) characters and smaller parties.


After studying the shards, @Starsystemic the Seer has some bad news. "An ancient monster is approaching Habitica, and it is causing terrible stress to befall the citizens. I can draw the shadow out of people's hearts and into this tower, where it will take physical form, but you’ll need to defeat it before it breaks loose and spreads again." You nod, and she starts to chant. Dancing shadows fill the room, pressing tightly together. The cold wind swirls, the darkness deepens. The Overshadowing Stress rises from the floor, grins like a nightmare made real... and strikes!


Defeat the Overshadowing Stress.

The shadow explodes in a puff of dark air, leaving the room brighter and your hearts lighter. The stress blanketing Habitica is diminished, and you can all breathe a sigh of relief. Still, as you look up at the sky, you sense that this is not over: the monster knows someone destroyed its shadow. "We'll keep careful watch in the coming weeks," says @Starsystemic, "and I'll send you a quest scroll when it manifests."
