|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the fourth task in a series of five (the end result being your 70th level spell/tome) and begins with Jarzarrad the Prophet who can be found in Undershore at -960, +650.
You say, 'Hail, Jarzarrad the Prophet'
Jarzarrad the Prophet says 'I know why you are here, _____.' He nods as you approach. 'I have known why you'd be here since before you were born. You are the _____ who will learn the secrets of [Shadowspine].''
You say, 'Shadowspine?'
Jarzarrad the Prophet says 'Yessss, Shadowspine. . . The drachnid book of the dead. . . The tome stolen by the Shiliskin Empire during the War of Four Crests. Shadowspine corrupted Emperor Draygun and drove him mad with the promise of power. Ultimately, Draygun's study of the tome led him to unleash terrible magic in Illsalin which turned him into a lich and bound the fallen warriors of two armies, both drachnid and shiliskin, to his will. You may not even know of Shadowspine yet. . . But you will. . . Let me know when you are [ready] to trace your fate.'
You say, 'I am ready'
Jarzarrad the Prophet says 'So be it. Here is what you must do. '
There are two versions of this task: Normal and hard. The only difference between them is the quality of loot and difficulty of mobs.
You have been assigned the task 'Flights of the Seeker'.
Emperor Draygun has learned of your part in the attack on his Praetorian Guards. The gates of Illsalin open and a dark presence gathers. Ready your weapons and make peace with your god.
Gather your group outside of Jarzarrad's hut 0/1 (Undershore)
You must defend Jarzarrad's base from The Seeker. When you gather outside of Jarzarrad's hut, this task stage completes itself.
Defend yourself from Draygun's Seeker 0/1 (Undershore)
The Seeker spawns a short distance away and begins walking towards the hut.
At 15% health, The Seeker complete-heals and spawns a mezzable add (Swirling Stone) to help him. The Seeker does this again when he reaches 15% and spawns another add (also mezzable).
Upon near-killing him, The Seeker despawns and turns into The Shattered Seeker (a frequent rampager). Upon killing it you win the mission.
Both The Shattered Seeker and Swirling Stones give the following faction hits:
+Agents of Dreadspire
+Free Traders of Malgrinnor
+Scions of Dreadspire
-Fallen Guard of Illsalin.
As the last pieces of the seeker fall to the ground the cavern grows eerily quiet. Although you have destroyed Draygun's assassin, you can't shake the feeling that you are being watched.
The Shattered Seeker drops 1 item:
Dark Mist Leggings (hard)
Dark Shroud Gem (normal)
Dark Void Essence (normal)
Dark Void Shield (normal)
Gray Iron Chain Boots (hard)
Ring of Dark Mists (normal)
Shadow Void Bracer (normal)
Shadow Void Cap (hard)
Shadow Void Cuffs (hard)
Shadowspine Essence (hard)
Void Mace (normal)
Normal Reward (everyone):
Melee: Ring of Dark Mists
Casters: Dark Void Shoulders
Hard Reward (everyone):
Melee: Aspiring Gemstone
Casters: Shadowspine Extract
The final task, "Into the Shadows", follows this one.
