Smashed Portal Generator
Vishax's Portal Generator
. Which will start the quest
Commander on Deck!
, and is turned in coordinates .
Completing the quest will give you permanent access to the portal to his ship, on the south end of the dock.
His damage is moderate considering he has 206M hp. He doesn't drop anything different than the other rares.
All the parts to create the quest item, can be dropped off the elites on the Terminus docks and ship (Portal to it on the north end of the docks ), in the south west area of the the Antoran Waste. The mobs that drop them are the
Squadron Commander Vishax has a large health pool.
During the fight:
- occasionally half of the platform is targeted by a barrage of fel. Easy to move out of.
- he targets you with a Massive Slam, it knocks you straight up, shouldn't knock you off, but be careful.
- He targets your location with Artillery Strike, after a few seconds the strike will hit for some damage. Easy to move out of.
Vishax can be stunned.
He dropped me 14 x Veiled Argunite and an Otherworldy Trophy.
You can start farming for the 4 different pieces at 75/64 in the wastes. All 4 items needed to open the portal are dropped from the elite mobs in the area. After you collect all 4 of the items, combine them and you get a quest. From there just follow the steps to open the portal to him. His base health is around 165M and he does hit like a truck.
Gave Vishax a shot on a BM hunter, ilvl 907, and successfully downed him solo. It took some time, but his three moves are fairly easy to deal with.
Massive Slam and Artillery Strike can both be interrupted. Because Artillery Strike can be dodged (just step out of the circle that appears on the ground during his cast), I recommend using interrupts for Massive Slam, which does have a faster cast associated with it. It doesn't do a TON of damage, and, hunters, fwiw, don't bother Disengaging to avoid the fall damage (damage isn't too terrible, and the risk of falling off if you're not paying attention to your angle isn't worth it).
The area you fight Vishax in is a long platform with a round end (similar to platforms seen around the Broken Shore/Legion invasions). I recommend facing the rounded end, keeping your back to the direction from which you enter. This allows you to see the fel barrage coming, because it starts at the rounded end and makes its way all the way down one side of the platform. This attack is easy to avoid as long as you keep an eye out for it and move to the safe half of the platform when the attack begins/approaches.
I've been farming the mobs 1hour and I havent looted anything of the portal, and a lock who entered in my group got the three items in 2 min, what am I missing?
can be found on the Legion ship, to get there you have to pass through the portal.
To open the portal you have to collect
As you carry generator, you can collect
All those mobs can be found across Terminus docks.
When you got all these item, combine them to get
spot, it's south landing pad. Use the portal you found there to reach to
Fight isnt hard, just avoid artillery strikes from another legion ship.
/way Antoran wastes 77.4 74.9 Portal to Squadron Commander Vishax
Got the other 3 items within 5 min after having
drop for me. Spent 30 min farming before that. So maybe we have to get
before the others can drop. Or it could just be complete RNG that made this happen to me.
What hasn't been mentioned is that once you complete the quest and use his portal you can use the portal again once a day to kill him all over again for loots
For players that, like me, plan to farm the mounts and other collectibles daily, I have compiled a set of macros with the tom-tom waypoints for rares that drop mounts. I used previous comments by others, especially Boxofbeer, as well as Wowhead maps to compile the coordinates.

Note that not all rares seem to spawn each day. If you discover something that is missing or incorrect, please let me know in the comments and I’ll fix it.
EDIT: After the release of Mac'aree, it seems that a couple changes were made. Puscilla also drops a mount (Biletooth Gnasher) and Kaara the Pale does NOT seem to drop the fel-spotted egg any longer. The macros have been updated to reflect these changes. Many thanks to the people who pointed these errors out to me!
As of now, if you use something that gets you extremely high up into the air, such as
, might work if close, such as from Terminus, the nearby ship) you can Reach Squadron Commander Vishax' ship without having to do his quest!
A way to farm this guy with all your alts on the same realm without having to do the quest to activate the portal is by parking your character that has done the quest by the portal, activating it and logging out. The portal will stay up after you have logged out and your alts can click on it without having done the quest; You can solo him with the Lightforged Warframe.
You can actually hitch a ride through someone else's portal for this. You just have to be there when they open it. Something to keep in mind if you're not having any luck farming the portal generator pieces, like me.
When farming the pieces from the lesser demons, I found they did NOT drop when the demons were elites. However, during certain world quests, the demons become normal mobs, and they dropped the pieces as soon as I killed them. If you're having trouble farming the pieces for the portal generator, wait until the mobs are no longer elite.
you can solo it easily with the lightforged warframe :)
For the Smashed Portal Generator, I farmed the Immortal Netherwalkers for about an hour with no luck. This was when the daily that involved killing them was active. For some reason, when this daily is active it spawns a version of the mob with 15 mil health.
The next day when the daily had ended, I came back to the version of the mob with 30 mil health. I got the Smashed Portal Generator on my very first kill.
It could be just a coincidence, but there are definitely two different versions of the mob. The droprate could be higher on the bigger one.
An interesting note for me at least: I was with someone when they acquired the quest "Commander on Deck!" after they assembled the pieces, so they shared the quest for me. I completed the quest, but I am unable to open the portal. The quest is flagged as completed for me when I check it with a script. I am wondering if it is now bugged out for me, unless there is a trick to opening the portal that I am unaware of. Beware if you want to share this quest with others in your group.
Don't want to farm the portal parts multiple times but want to run multiple alts? Farm it once then park the toon you unlocked it on by the portal (it can summon the portal multiple times a day). Get an alt to the portal, hop to the toon with it unlocked, activate the portal then switch back to the alt without the portal. Repeat as many times as you want/have alts on that server.
The "portal" doesn't actually exist initially. It's located at 77.4, 74.9 (TomTom) but it's easy to miss since it just looks like a pile of rocks where a portal should be. Mousing over this area brings up the gear wheel/option to build the portal.
Also, I regularly run around killing 112 rare elites, but I really struggled with this fight and am sort of dumbfounded at how many people claim this fight is "cake." He has 200+million HP and as a marksman hunter who has to stand still for my most powerful shots, his artillery shot and smash moves were a serious pain. Three wipes and a metric ton of persistence did the trick.
Something literally no one has answered in their comments - can you get the parts to drop and open the portal when the quest for him isn't up?
No need WM off. today i summoned too easy with WM ON. just run runes one by one with mount.
This is just your typical WoW garbage RNG. Ignore all the other comments and just grind
. Then once you get that, kill the other mobs for the other pieces.
Ignore the comments saying you have to do quests or kill the red shirt one, etc. I tried all that and it made no difference, I just had to kill a ton of the
Was no fun...
How to get to this dude:
Kill mobs around the area until you get
Smashed Portal Generator.
Once you have this piece, the others begin to drop. Keep killing mobs until you get
. Click the
Smashed Portal Generator
to assemble the pieces. You just gotta do this once and it "unlocks" for this specific character. Accept and follow the quest that pops up and it will bring you to him where you can try for the toy that he drops once a day.
As a 120 frost mage this was very easy to do!
