Upon arriving at the event, which takes place in all six regions of Appalachia, either simultaneously or at separate intervals, the resident will have to bang on a drum near the center of the location to begin. They will then fight through four waves of "prime" creatures. The creatures vary based on the region and may include mongrels, radscorpions, wolves, mirelurks, etc. Wave 1 and 2 contain smaller creatures like the mongrels. Wave 3 consists of larger creatures assisted by smaller creatures. In the fourth wave, there will be a boss, which has a high chance to be a legendary creature. The boss will be supported by both small and large creatures. Once the boss is killed, the event is complete.
The prime boss can be one of six creatures, with each creature showing up in a different map region. These creatures can be either a deathclaw (the Forest), Grafton monster (Toxic Valley), sheepsquatch (Ash Heap), hermit crab (Savage Divide), mirelurk queen (the Mire) or a super mutant behemoth (Cranberry Bog).
