Recidivate Transformed is a boss quest that marks the final part of the Recidivate quest line. The quest can be purchased from the Quest shop for 4 gems by players of level 60 or higher; the quest owner also receives a copy of the quest scroll for completing Part 2 of the quest, Recidivate the Necromancer.Bailey the Town Crier recommends a minimum of level 60 to take part in the quest; lower level party members can still participate in the quest at their own risk.
Necro-Vice is the hardest boss in the game as of its release. Necro-Vice's HP (2000) makes this a long quest and its strength multiplier (3.5) makes 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. The very high difficulty means missed Dailies will cause much damage to the group; having a Healer in the party is highly recommended.
Recidivate crumples to the ground, and you strike at her with the moonstone chain. To your horror, Recidivate seizes the gems, eyes burning with triumph.
"Foolish creature of flesh!" she shouts. "These moonstones will restore me to a physical form, true, but not as you imagined. As the full moon waxes from the dark, so too does my power flourish, and from the shadows I summon the specter of your most feared foe!"
A sickly green fog rises from the swamp, and Recidivate’s body writhes and contorts into a shape that fills you with dread – the undead body of Vice, horribly reborn.
Your breath comes hard and sweat stings your eyes as the undead Wyrm collapses. The remains of Recidivate dissipate into a thin grey mist that clears quickly under the onslaught of a refreshing breeze, and you hear the distant, rallying cries of Habiticans defeating their Bad Habits for once and for all.
@Baconsaur the beastmaster swoops down on a gryphon. "I saw the end of your battle from the sky, and I was greatly moved. Please, take this enchanted tunic – your bravery speaks of a noble heart, and I believe you were meant to have it."
