Detailed walkthrough

The goal of the event is to fight and destroy the strangler heart stationed on a nearby stone outcrop.

When attacked a certain amount, the heart will close, emitting a poisonous gas and summoning waves of strangler mirelurks and strangler feral ghouls. While closed, the strangler heart is immune to damage, but re-opens once the summoned enemies are defeated. This continues until the stranger heart is at a quarter health.

Once the stranger heart drops to 25% health, it will close again and summon either a strangler mirelurk queen or a strangler Grafton monster. As before, the heart will re-open when the enemies are defeated.

The event quest completes when the strangler heart and summoned boss creature are finally defeated.

Bugs

It is possible to one-hit-KO the strangler heart as soon as the event starts, before its armor values are assigned. This will cause the event to lock up and stop progression, ending in failure by time-out.
