The Octothulu's HP (1200) makes this a long quest and its strength multiplier (2.5) make this a hard quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in about four weeks. The high difficulty means missed Dailies will cause higher amounts of damage to the group; having a Healer in the party is highly recommended.
@Urse, a wild-eyed young scribe, has asked for your help exploring a mysterious cave by the sea shore. Among the twilight tidepools stands a massive gate of stalactites and stalagmites. As you near the gate, a dark whirlpool begins to spin at its base. You stare in awe as a squid-like dragon rises through the maw. "The sticky spawn of the stars has awakened," roars @Urse madly. "After vigintillions of years, the great Octothulu is loose again, and ravening for delight!"
Defeat the Octothulu.
With a final blow, the creature slips away into the whirlpool from which it came. You cannot tell if @Urse is happy with your victory or saddened to see the beast go. Wordlessly, your companion points to three slimy, gargantuan eggs in a nearby tidepool, set in a nest of gold coins. "Probably just octopus eggs," you say nervously. As you return home, @Urse frantically scribbles in a journal and you suspect this is not the last time you will hear of the great Octothulu.
