Phoenix of the South quest

Hi, I´ve started this quest by entering the blessed caves, defeated the Shaman and used the flowers on the altar. The quest marker said I could defeat the monster, but a bug happened: I couldn´t attack the Blood Defiler. I´ve entered again, the quest mark is still saying to kill the demon, but when I fight the blood is still there and he refills his health. I cannot give up the quest to reset. What should I do? Thank you.

Have you tried clicking the big thing right next to the boss? The boss runs to his blood pool at 75% 50% 25% and you need to interrupt him by clicking that big thing that is clickable.

Do you mean the big red blood demon from the destinyquest?
Can you attack him? Just dont stop doing damage. After the 4th or 5th (?) time he was refilling his health he will not do it again.
You can also click on the altar besides the pool of blood to interrupt him while healing.

Correct me if im wrong :slight_smile:

The Blood Defiler returns to the blood pool three times to heal while you are fighting him. There are two ways to fight.

One, fight him outside the cave, away from his blood pool and allow him to heal completely three times before you DPS him down on the final fight.

Two, fight him inside the cave, beside the blood pool. However, you must be standing beside the standing stone, not the serpent statue. Each time he goes to heal, click on the standing stone and interrupt his healing. This is the faster way, but may require that you use more potions.

I hope this helps!

Working as intended. After he kicks you and heads back to his blood pool, click on the column next to the blood and it stops him from healing.

This is true. Most players are able to “rectify” their instance on their own. There are a few situations where players have truly broken instances. The main problem is that it’s impossible for a player to know this on their own. Our Developers are looking at making these situations more clear to the player and fixing the base issue.

I have a bad connection, so sometimes the Latancy makes things worse for me, just for some something simple like clicking on a something.

in this fight I fight it out, I just pull the demon back, so during his run time back, is plenty of time to REST, and have full HP/Mana/Stamina, on his return. It will be 3 returns before he stops going back.

I go as far back, around the corner, to the room on the right, sometimes further (a tiny bit), Ranged characters can start hitting damage earlier

I had troubles clicking , and that was my only solution to completing that Mission

I was not able to fight the Blood Defiler again (not clickable) after re-entering the Blessed Caves.
I was killed by it a few times and decided to teleport out using Path of Asura. However, when I re-entered the Blessed Cave, I cannot interact with the Blood Defiler. I can only fight the guards. Please help!

I found this a little confusing and kinda painful. I accidentally aggro’d the fountain demon boss before tainting the blood at the altar. I managed to kill him (luck?) but then couldn’t get the artifacts because, I assumed, I killed the boss in the wrong order. So i got the poison, killed the high priest and tainted the blood. Then i failed many times to kill the pool demon but finally did it but still couldnt loot the artifact even though the force field was down. Figured the quest was bugged, left the instance, was going to delete and get the quest line again but delete not possible. Wtf? Reentered the instance, redid everything in the right order but then failed multiple times on pool demon boss until i resorted to forums advice. Bought a stack of heal pots and used standing stone to break its healing and done. So after all that bother and agony im left wondering what in heck the standing stone has to do with anything and why is there no discussion of it in the quest journal. Was this quest inherently broken af from the beginning or something?
