Sup!
I’m playing as engineer and trying to complete “statue of melandru” skill point in Malchor’s Leap.

“It will be easy they said, no one dies they said”
Ok i’m tryin to kill mobs but here is “annoying thing” that bombarding everyone. 1 mob dead, 50% hp – veteran and i’m dead. My turrets and support turrets dead too)

So mobs isnt big problem, lil tactics and they will gone…but bombarding thing makes me angry.
Even if i killed all mobs around i cant commune the skill…because of that)
Is here any tactics special for engineer? Coz i know that for ranger and guardian its isnt big problem.
Thank you!

My guess is that the Temple associated with that statue has become contested.

Each of the five gods (excluding Kormir) has a separate Temple in Orr, in addition to several statues in various places. Either the Pact or the Risen can control a Temple.

If the Risen control the Temple of a specific god, all statues of that god will radiate a continuous nasty effect, ranging from random conditions to periodic damage to periodic interrupts. Some of these will make it impossible to commune with the statue to finish the skill challenge.

My advice to you is to either find the Temple and check whether it is contested or uncontested, or to periodically check back at the statue to see if the nasty environmental effect is (temporarily) gone.

Here is an overview of the Temples and in which zone you may find it:
- Balthazar: Straits of Devastation (Southwest) - Lyssa: Malchor's Leap (North) - Dwayna: Malchor's Leap (Northwest) - Melandru: Cursed Shore (East) - Grenth: Cursed Shore (Southwest)

Also, from the effect you describe, I am unsure whether it is actually a statue of Melandru you are at. It sounds more like Lyssa or Balthazar to me.

Ok thank you!
Its actually Melandru near “sculptor’s end” poi (and vista). Underwater one.

The effect of Statues of Melandru when the Temple of Melandru has been corrupted:
“Players in the area of statues will be attacked by roots that cause Crippled and Bleeding. "

If that is what happened to you, you need to wait for the Temple to be under Pact control.

I recall doing that skill challenge myself with little effort, sneaking past some of the monsters. However, there was an underwater Melandru statue in Straits of Devastation that had the corruption effect that made it impossible for me to even fight a single one of the monsters, let alone commune with the statue.

i think i know which one you’re talking about. i was trying to map clear and i saw another person attempting and we were both getting hit by the statues effects pretty badly. the vet there didn’t help. so we just alternately tried to draw aggro while each one of us communed. iirc, you can still commune while under the effects of the statue, i.e. it doesn’t interupt?

and as i was leaving another person came by. asked for help and we just ended up dragging the vet away, killed him and then he went on ahead and communed while i looked out for others.

so maybe try asking around map and see if anyone’s nearby or willing to help ya.
