|This part of Gates of Discord progression follows your completion of the Summoner Ring quest (note that some elements of Kod'Taz progression can be completed outside of the order outlined here, which is but one path you can take).
Pit of the Lost
When you spoke with Kevren Nalavat about "other tasks", you saw:
Kevren Nalavat says 'As I suspected, you're ready for some challenging work! I must warn you though, what lies ahead is not for the faint of heart. The other tasks that are available deal with three other areas. Those areas are the [Martyrs Passage], the [Pit of the Lost], and the [Crumbled Sanctuary] of the Divine. Choose the one you wish to attempt and we can continue.'
You say, 'What about the Pit of the Lost?'
Kevren Nalavat says 'I'm glad you've decided to continue helping the brotherhood. We can always use adventurers like you. There have been some mysterious happenings coming from the Pit of the Lost. I don't have the information on what's going on, but another of the brotherhood nearby does. You must venture south of the Martyrs Passage and speak with Tublik Narwethar. He will know what's going on.'
Head to the far southwestern part of the zone where you'll find Tublik Narwethar (click for map image) at about /loc -2000, 1275, -348.
You say, 'Hail, Tublik Narwethar'
Tublik Narwethar glances at you suspiciously. 'Can I help you with something? Did Kevren send you about the Pit of the Lost? Speak up!'
You say, 'Kevren sent me'
Tublik Narwethar says 'Ah yes, so he did. I've been dealing with some others that Kevren has sent my way. What can I do for you specifically?'
You say, 'Tell me about the Pit of the Lost'
Tublik Narwethar says 'I see Kevren finally sent someone to me to look into the pit. It's about time! I've been telling him over and over that there are some really strange things going on in the Pit of the Lost to the north of here, but he just doesn't seem to want to pay enough attention to the claims. In any case, you're here now and that means that you must be [willing to look] into the odd occurrences, right?'
You say, 'I am willing to look'
Tublik Narwethar says 'I'm glad I can count on you. You need to know a couple things before you go. As I said, there are strange things going on in the pit, but we're not sure what they are yet. We have sensed an energy force emanating from that area and believe there are some kind of artifacts there that must be collected. We need you to [collect the artifacts] and return them so we can study them.'
You say, 'I'll collect the artifacts'
Tublik hands you a bag and says, 'Place four artifacts you find from the pit in this bag and seal it off. Return the sealed bag to me when you're done so I can further examine what you find. Make haste to the Pit of the Lost and be careful -- there's no telling what kind of evils are waiting for you there. If you have someone else with you that [needs a bag], have them tell me so.'
You receive "Tublik's Bag".
Head to the very far northwestern part of the zone where you'll find a large pit (the "Pit of the Lost") swarming with undead. Among the mobs that can spawn in place of standard trash mobs are "Forlorn Relic Devotees" - these mobs are tougher than the general zone population. They hit for a max ~1,700 and are immune to all forms of crowd control.
Kill and loot them until you've collected four items:
Minor Relic of Energy: Nep
Minor Relic of Energy: Oxa
Minor Relic of Energy: Suv
Minor Relic of Energy: Tek
Combine these in "Tublik's Bag" to produce "Tublik's Sealed Bag", and then turn it in to Tublik.
Tublik Narwethar says 'You're done already? I wasn't expecting such a prompt response, but nicely done _____! Give me a while to examine these artifacts. I should have some additional information for you once you return.'
The Ageless Relic Protector
You say, 'Hail, Tublik Narwethar'
Tublik Narwethar says 'Welcome back, _____. I've been looking over those artifacts you returned to me in the sealed bag and I'm afraid I have some disturbing news. It seems the artifacts weren't artifacts at all, but objects of ghastly power held by the dark spirits you collected them from. What's worse is that since you've collected these objects, the energy emanating from the pit has [gotten stronger]!'
You say, 'Gotten stronger?'
Tublik Narwethar says 'The power wasn't as noticeable before. Now, though, it seems there's a fiend in the pit that's become agitated by the removal of these objects we've been collecting. I believe that whatever is behind the energy disruption kept a watchful eye over those objects. Now that they're gone, I believe it will try to find them again and destroy anything and everything in its path in the process. You must [stop it] before it has a chance!'
You say, 'I'll stop it!'
Tublik Narwethar says 'You must return to the Pit of the Lost and find whatever this fiend is and destroy it. I believe that it will have some kind of artifact that is linked to the ones you returned to me in the sealed bag. Return whatever it may have to me. Good luck, _____, I have no doubt that the artifact it holds will be as interesting of a find as anything else we've uncovered so far!'
Head back to the Pit of the Lost where you'll now find the "Ageless Relic Protector" overlooking the western edge of the pit.
The Ageless Relic Protector recognizes those who took its relics and prepares for battle.
Ageless Relic Protector charges those who stole the relics it protects!
The mob hits for a max ~2,200 and AEs "Strike of Glory". Upon its death, it splits into 2x "Ageless Relic Protector" (hit for a max ~1,500 each):
Ageless Relic Protector gets its bearings and continues its assault on the relic thieves!
Each of these two split mobs split into an additional 3x "Ageless Relic Protector" (for a total of six more) which need to be killed to complete the event. The final splits hit a bit harder than the second splits, but not much more difficult. All mobs are immune to all crowd control. No balancing is required.
Ageless Relic Protector has been slain by _____!
Each of the final six split mobs drops a "Protector's Relic of Energy" (turn-in item for this quest).
One of the mobs drops one item of loot:
Ageless Spectral Cuffs
Gaunt Veil of Purification
Haggard Trusik Shawl
Reflective Orb of Energy
Sandals of Spectral Ferocity
Return to Tublik
Hand in the "Protector's Relic of Energy" to Tublic Narwethar:
Tublik Narwethar says 'Excellent! We don't have to worry about that abomination any longer. This artifact you found on the creature is also quite unique. It will be a while before I have a chance to look it over, but it's nice to have it in our possession nonetheless. Well done once again, _____. I look forward to working with you again soon!'
This completed the "Pit of the Lost" portion of Gates of Discord progression.
