Step 1: Kill Peridas.
Step 2: Kill Peridas, again.
Step 3: Kill Peridas, one last time.
Strategy and Hints:
Peridas is a very rare spawn and it can spawn day or night.
It has been reported to take as little as a minute or up to 16 real time hours to respawn.
Fix your self a drink, get your self a good book, you may be camping for a while.
Eventually, Peridas will, at first, spawn in the form of a Harpy.
It 'con's blue to a 50th and can be easily soloed by a single 50.
Once you kill the Harpy form, Peridas will change to a ghostly human form for a few seconds and then change into a Crocodile.
Once again, after the Crocodile form is killed, Peridas will change to it's ghostly human form again shortly followed by it's final form, a Iaculus.
Be warned the Iaculus form can poison you.
Once this final form is dealt with, the Peridas' ghostly from returns to thank you for freeing it and rewards you.
At this point you will be granted the encounter.
Peridas will also drop other items of value.
Great Hunt scrolls drop from the Harpies and Stone Statues in and around Oceanus Hesperos.
