Tier 1: Use Box to Capture The Music of Sighing Forest Spirit

Pick up the box from right next to Anastasia.

Use it on one of the Forest Spirits in the area.  You can either fight the wave that will attack you, or run away and reset them.  You get credit for using the item, not killing things.

Tier 2: Use Box to Capture The Music of Enslaved Forest Spirit

Follow directions stated in Tier 3.

Tier 3: Capture 12 Forest Spirits

In order to kill Padurri, you need to seperate them from their enslaved spirits.  Do this via roots, resets, or having 1 person take aggro of spirits, while other takes the Padurri itself.  You could always use my personal favorite strategy for Tier 2 & 3 though.  Since you don’t actually need to kill anything for this mission (Until Tier 4), simply walk up to one of the Padurri, use the music box, they’ll get into combat mode and bring out their spirits.  Simply go up to them and use the Music box on each one, then run away to re-set the fight.  Come back and do the same thing on a DIFFERENT Padurri until you get to Tier 4 of the mission.
You will need a total of..

4: Shrilling Forest Spirits
4: Keening Forest Spirits
4: Clamouring Forest Spirits

Run Away!!!

Tier 4: Kill Mama Padurii

Alright, this time you can’t just use the Music box and run away, you actually need to kill the big Mama Padurii.  First thing’s first though, you need to summon her.

To do this, walk up to the rock formation shown below and use the music box to summon big Mamma herself.

For this fight, she has two “phases” and you control when she changes “phases” by clicking on the rock formation that you used to summon her in the first place.

Start the fight All the way inside her little tunnel.  She will summon Spirits.  When she does, run to the rocks and click on them.  This will trigger a change of “phase”.  She will no longer be able to use ranged attacks for a short time, so she will be forced to follow you.  You a decent way away with it following you.  The Spirits will be left behind while she comes at you, this is how you separate her from the spirits and kill her.  She will go back to using ranged attacks, and shortly thereafter summon new spirits (the old ones will disappear).  When this happens, run past the rock formation, clicking it again, and run to the end of her tunnel and continue fighting her there.  Her spirits will be left behind once more.  Repeat this cycle until she is dead.  I would recommend bringing a friend along as this can be a tough encounter, even while grouped.

Thanks to Cherch for the updated strategy.

Ok, this quest has had changes made to it that make it a bit harder in Tier 3, but easier in Tier 4 (theoretically). In Tier 3, you now have to kill some Padurii. Better bring a friend and/or some good hinder effects. In Tier 4 the minions stays and Mama is suppose to charge you. So the stone isn’t needed and isn’t clickable anymore. Offical post said :
Last Dance of the Pădurii – Muma Pădurii should no longer attack from range – she now fights like other Padurii. Interacting with the Humming runestone is no longer necessary to counteract that.

The Padurii/Minion system has been revised. Players should be unable to separate a spirit minion from it’s master unless they slow them down. The Spirits are very susceptible to movement impairing effects.
Now thats how it’s supposed to work. But in my solo attempt at it, I had problems keeping the minions hindered on Tier 3. And in Tier 4, Mama would sometimes stay and sometimes her minions would follow. This was prior to the 1.1.1 patch, so hopefully it’s been fixed.

    If you are very patient, but also unimaginative (like me!), it turns out that while in the presence of her spirit friends, Mama Padurii is immune to both magical and physical damage, she’s not immune to REFLECTED damage. So, if you’re into blood magic or have other tricks to turn damage back on the enemy, they will happily – if slowly – tear themselves apart, immunities regardless :P

    I found an Easy-ish way to Do Tier 3, The Fata Pădurii Spiritcatchers (First Pădurii you have to Face) are Fairly Easy to Solo… I say Fairly as in you can actually Kill them without worrying about them staying Full Health as the Enslaved Forest Spirits don’t seem to be doing much but a Laser Light Show (They Shoot that Orange Burst but it doesn’t seem to Heal them or the Healing Effect is Negligible) and the important part is they Count to Tier 3’s Eliminate Some of the Pădurii Brood Condition, so if you are not Good at Hindering or don’t have any friends online when you do this Mission just take out the Spiritcatchers.

  4. Munchman says:

    Oh and Just a Little Extra Info on the Forest Spirits

    Orange are Enslaved
    Blue are Clamouring
    Red Shrilling
    White Keening

    Also an Edit to Below, some Spiritcatchers do get Healed up… if they do just run or go to Hinder Technique, if they start taking proper Damage then just keep killing!

  5. Helper says:

    Tier 3: there are certain mobs that you can kill easily. Both I found were close to the water and only spawn one thing that doesnt keep them healed. So look around. if the trees dont take damage, run and reset and find one that does! Tier 3

  6. Roland Hesz says:

    Padurii are immune to hinder effects and stun. So hinder advice doesn’t really work.

  7. Sqlry says:

    The Padurii may be immune to hinders but the spirits are not. Drop a whiteout, wait for the spirits to get iced, then run away, dragging the Padurii with you. You must actually kill 4 of them now to complete quest as well.

  8. Spathistis says:

    Tier 3 can easily be completed solo by killing the Padurii at 942,675. It only has a damage buff spirit with it so it isn’t immortal. No idea how to deal with Tier 4 solo!

  9. Ubarad says:

    I found that using gtaoe did not hinder the spirits unless I had one of them targeted instead of her, where it worked. I initially pulled her back away from her house and left the spirits there, they came back at 75% and shielded her again. I kited back toward her house and they reappeared when she was at 50%, but did not affect her. So be aware you have to target them for it to work and toward her door seems better.

    once i actually started trying to collect the right spirits, it wasnt that difficult at all – dont bother with enslaved spirits :)
    used shotgun/fist, with close quarters to apply hinder. smack the padurii with a rocket or something to shake out the spirits, if you are collecting them (tier 3) then just do it, to kill the padurii get close in there and use scattershot to hinder the spirits then run back to a clear area, watching the buffs on the padurii health bar – when they vanish, just turn around and beat it to death. The Fist gear is mostly for heals, but i do use Tear em Up as my 2nd consumer – for the 10% damage boost immediately prior to my shottie consumer. Same tactic for Mama, get close, hinder, run away, smack.. repeat
    Was really expecting something more difficult

  11. Venomlaced says:

    There is 1 Pădurii you can solo kill very easily it does not have a sprite healing it and the location is 1012 : 722 you can solo the mission with this information.

  12. Molator says:

    It’s possible to do it alone.
    You can isolate the sprites using stun spell and moving away.
    Can take some time and you may have to repeat the process again.

  13. Munden says:

    Just wanted to say that actually Tier 3 shouldn’t require friends. The padurii that you can solo who just have the one ‘enslaved forest spirit’ count towards the 4 you have to kill. I was able to use your trick to get the notes I needed, and then killed 4 of the easy padurii.

  14. Ickthid says:

    After reading of all the problems people were having with kiting, I got a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to finish this. But, two things helped me do it easily on the first try.

    Tactical Retreat and Razor Wire. Assault Rifle skills with hinder effects. Made the fight cake. The adds despawn after a few seconds if they’re too far from mama, and respawn twice. The second time they make her immune and you need to re-hinder them, but the third time they didn’t seem to do anything. I hindered and kited mama away anyway.

  15. GraVmaN GraVmaN says:

    Could we get some clarity? At tier 4 the music box doesn’t work as there isn’t a valid target to be found. The youtube video I found shows the box as a Humming Music Box (not what I have) and all goes as intended. I get there and I get nothing. This walkthru also says nothing about eliminating 4 padurii brood at tier 3, nor needing impairs on the spirits to do so… can someone update this properly and remove old info?
