|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group task begins with Savil Tranquilsong in the Butcherblock Mountains. He is located just outside the passage leading to Greater Faydark (approximate location -1285, +2500).
The task's mob levels and rewards scale based on the level of your group (up to level 70, though there is no maximum level limit for requesting the task).
You say, 'Hail, Savil Tranquilsong'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'The blessing of Quellious upon you ______, Are you on your way to the [estate], or have you come to confront the many dangers of the cauldron?'
You say, 'I am on my way to the estate.'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'Ah, the cursed undead there are truly a wretched bunch. Those grounds were not always that way, you know. Once it was a beacon for hope and worship to my goddess, and I hope to see it as such again. Would you care to hear the [tale] of the estate?'
You say, 'What tale?'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'The estate was originally built by a cleric of Quellious, named Calim Malsiv. It was to be a great outpost for the glory of Quellious. From there Calim was going to spread the word of the goddess to all on Faydwer. Indeed all was going well until that [fateful day].'
You say, 'What fateful day?'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'It all began with a dwarf from Kaladim that found himself in some trouble about the same time that Calim began his construction of Unrest. The dwarf's name was Garanel Rucksif. To all who knew him he was a peaceful and hard working dwarf. He held a prestigious position within the Kaladim mining guild, and had a loving family. No one who knew him would have ever conceived that he would be capable of [what he did].'
You say, 'What did he do?'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'One day, he seemed to completely lose his mind, little is known about what caused this though I personally suspect the hand of Innoruuk was involved. In a fit of blind rage and hatred, he murdered his wife and three children. As news of this horror spread, the citizens of Kaladim were outraged and fearful of the crazed dwarf and began to take up arms, meaning to bring their own [judgment] down upon Garanel for his actions.'
You say, 'What judgment?'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'I can only imagine he was to be put to death by their vengeful hands. That was not what happened though. Garanel must have heard the whispers and even in his rage realized he must leave his homeland or face his own death. He wandered the mountains for some time and eventually found himself by the water of Dagnor's Cauldron. From there it was not long before he found himself on the grounds of the Estate of Unrest. Calim happened upon Garanel, as he sought a place to hide, and heard his confused and twisted tale. With his faith in Quellious and peace, Calim sought to aid the dwarf and took him into the mansion. What [happened] next is almost too terrible to tell.'
You say, 'What happened?'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'Calim and Garanel climbed to the top of the tower, along with several of Calim's own kin. There they began to talk about what had happened and see what they could do to discover the cause of the madness and what could be done about it. Unfortunately before they could overcome the problem, Garanel's madness rose once again. In a fury beyond anything you can dream, Garanel tore through Calim's kin before finally turning on [Calim] himself.'
You say, 'What of Calim?'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'Calim called upon Quellious for aid in that moment, but was not quick enough. No force could stop Garanel then. The enraged dwarf slaughtered Calim, but as Calim's blood spread on the floor, the attention of Quellious was drawn fully to the estate. Upon seeing the devastation of her loyal followers, Quellious cursed Garanel and the entire estate along with him. It was a terrible curse that endures to this day. However, it is my [mission] to see this curse undone.'
You say, 'What mission?'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'It is my belief that if we could travel through time and undo the deaths of Calim and his kin, that the curse will never come to pass. To this end I have been studying portal spells in hopes of finding a way back to that day. I believe I have finally succeeded, but have discovered a new [snare] in my plans.'
You say, 'What snare?'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'While I believe I can travel back to that fateful day, I doubt I have the power to stop Garanel myself. Wait. . . if you are [willing], we might be able to work together and fulfill my mission.'
You say, 'I am willing.'
Savil Tranquilsong says 'Bless you ______. I will activate the portal so that you may use it. Travel back and see to it that Garanel is unable to complete his bloody work.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Curse Begins'.
Accept the task. You receive Savil's Wand, with one charge of Savil's Time Portal.
Speak with Savil's assistant 0/1 (Dagnor's Cauldron)
My apprentice, Nisha Lightbrook, has instructions to help you through the gate. Speak with her when you arrive in the cauldron. Make sure you hold on to this wand, it is your ticket home. Best of luck to you in this effort.
Zone into Dagnor's Cauldron. At this point your shared task will update, and your compass will reflect a green line similar to other DoN-era missions.
Follow the compass to the island in the middle of the cauldron. Calim's assistant, Nisha Lightbrook is waiting for you there. She does not respond to hails, however, once all of your party arrives for the mission, have each individual say "I am ready" and she will port you into the instanced version of Unrest.
You say, 'I am ready.'
Nisha Lightbrook says 'May the blessings of Quellious go with you on your endeavor.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT ...
You have entered The Estate of Unrest: The Curse Begins.
Stop Garanel from killing Calim Malsiv 0/1 (Estate of Unrest)
Hurry to top of the tower in the mansion, there isn't much time. I can only hope my calculations were correct and you have arrived in time to stop the deaths of Calim and his kin.
One party member must reach Garanel's live version, along with the corpses of Calim and his kin out on the balcony (where the Knight of Unrest spawns in the normal zone).
Once you reach them a zone-wide text will go into play:
A celestial voice echoes around the mansion, 'What have you done Garanel? I came to my cleric's call, only to find his blood on your hands! Treachery such as this will not go unpunished.'
Garanel shouts, 'Do your worst! None can stand against me and there is nothing you can do to stop me!'
The voice returns, 'You shall reap the fruits of your labor, dwarf. You will never leave these grounds again. Let this serve as an eternal reminder to all your treachery and murder.'
At this point all of the roaming followers of Quellious depop and the zone repops with dark blue to yellow con KoS mobs.
A cold wind blows through the estate as the sounds of activity and worship dwindle. Suddenly the sounds of clattering bones and tearing earth can be heard.
The voice icily states, 'You are not above this curse either, dwarf. You will spend eternity deprived of your mortal coil. Go seek whatever hole you would hide in fiend!'
Garanel howls with rage before snatching something from Calim's corpse and dissipating with the wind. . .
Your task 'The Curse Begins' has been updated.
Retrieve the holy symbol of Quellious from the gazebo 0/1 (Estate of Unrest)
Retrieve the Book of Knowledge from the balcony 0/1 (Estate of Unrest)
Retrieve Calim's Medallion of Quellious from Garanel Rucksif 0/1 (Estate of Unrest)
Destroy Garanel's ghost 0/1 (Estate of Unrest)
Regrettably we were not fast enough to save Calim, however, you should be able to collect several ancient artifacts while you are there. These artifacts have been lost for ages and would prove a great boon if they were returned.
There was a holy symbol that was said to have blessed the gazebo outside the mansion. You might start there in your search for it.
There was also a book detailing many of the original tenants of my faith. It would be a most precious thing if you could find it for me. According to my research Calim often ventured out on to the balcony of the roof of the house in order to study it.
Before he fled it appears that Garanel stole Calim's Medallion of Quellious. Hopefully you will find it on him when you confront him. It is my hope that by eliminating him at the start of the curse we may be able to dilute the effects as time moves forward.
Your quest is now to collect three items and kill Garanel. The items are:
1. A Holy Symbol of Quellious (drops off a twisted acolyte at the gazebo)
2. A Book of Knowledge (drops off Librarian Carsil - named ghoul located on roof at +545, 0)
3. A Medallion of Quellious (drops off Garanel Rucksif, same location as regular Garanel in basement)
Upon the last boss's death, the following zone-wide text appears, along with "an ancient chest" containing various loot:
I appreciate your help more than you can know. We will see what effects your work has had on the undead. In the meantime, I will continue my work and see if the timing can be corrected on my spell.
(Opt) Use Savil's wand to return to your own time 0/1 (Estate of Unrest)
(Opt) Return the artifacts to Savil Tranquilsong 0/1 (Butcherblock Mountains)
At this point you may port out of the zone using the wand and complete the optional quest checklist items by returning the three looted drops to Savil Tranquilsong in Butcherblock for a little extra experience, or simply destroy them. If you port out, you see this:
At least the trip back worked as intended. Bring me the relics you retrieved and I will see what I can do to reward you.
If the items are returned to Savil, he responds courtesously.
Savil Tranquilsong says 'I never thought I would see these relics. Thank you for taking the time to bring them to me. You cannot know what this means to my brethren and I.'
