This monster mission begins with Historian Azern who is located in the Overthere at the end of the road leading to the Frontier Mountains, at -3500, +1500.

You say, 'Hail, Historian Azern'

Historian Azern says 'Greetings to you, strange one. you look like the type who seeks out great quests of lore and myth, perhaps you would like to assist me in the retrieval of an ancient [book].'

You say 'What book?'

Historian Azern says 'Yes, I speak of The Green Fog, and ancient book once lost down in the Howling Stones. If you believe yourself to be worthy, seek out this artifact and return it to me. Legend has it that it tells a story of how the Iksar revolted against the Shissar empire right here, where you stand!'

You have been assigned the task 'The Fall of the Shissar'.

Green Mist is starting to spread all around the area. Find the cause of the panic and if it is something that can be used against them to earn your people's freedom.

You can play one of two types of monsters:
Iksar Slave (Warrior)
Iksar Ritualist (Necromancer)



Find the lost book, The Green Fog 0/1 (Howling Stones)

Your first objective is to obtain a copy of the book "The Green Fog" from a pyre golem in Charasis. Said player must of course be keyed to enter Charasis. Only a copy retrieved during the mission will count toward the goal. (Pyre golems are located in the zone-in area, so obtaining a copy is simple.)

You have slain a pyre golem!
Your faction standing with Drussel Sathir got worse.
Your faction standing with Mayong Mistmoore got better.
Your faction standing with Venril Sathir got worse.

--You have looted a The Green Fog.--

Bring the book back to Historian Azern 0/1 (The Overthere)

Historian Azern says 'You found it! Amazing. According to the ancient text, the battle began just [down the hill] from here.'

Your task 'The Fall of the Shissar' has been updated.

You say, 'Down the hill?'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Overthere.

Upon zoning in you will see a standoff between Iksar Slaves and Shissar Soldiers. Historian Azern is nearby and will port you out if you ask him:

You say, 'Hail, Historian Azern'

Historian Azern says 'If you find yourself in a hurry to [leave], just let me know and away you go!'

Make your way to the center of the commotion 0/1 (The Overthere)

Go to the center of the zone by the canyon, a.k.a. the Scorpikis Pit, at approximately -325, +245, -50. Here, you will see rows of dead Shissar.

Strike down 15 Shissar before the Green Mist subsides 0/15 (The Overthere)

Kill 15 Shissar. They are scattered throughout the zone, found near the roads, by ruins, and near the dock area.

Quickly make your way to the Warsliks Woods before you are found 0/1 (The Overthere)

Go near the Warsliks Woods zoneline and encounter Slavemaster Dryyl.

Defeat Slavemaster Dryyl 0/1 (The Overthere)

Loot the corpse with the mission reward. When you are ready to leave, go back to Historian Azern and let him know. You are then sent back to the non-instanced Overthere and receive approximately 1 AA worth of experience.

Did this MM twice today with a full group, three real people, one botting three, one botting two. Not difficult but takes a while. All in all, including getting the book from Charasis, took us about 70 minutes. About 10 minutes of that is just running from the SW corner where you start all the way to WW zone to fight Dryyl...

Killing the templars is easy, just watch for 'begins to cast a spell' messages once they fall below 50% HP and hit them with the Stun ability (Power Strike or something like that). If it lands (they evade it maybe 10% of the time), it always interrupts their CH. I never saw them cast any heals other than CH.

Note: dont help the NPC iksar slaves fight the shissar. If you kill a shissar while an NPC slave they're fighting is still alive, you won't get credit for him towards your 15.

Dryyl dropped the arms both times. I was told that this MM used to give something like 1.3 AAs each time, but now (after PoR patch that nerfed MMs) it only gives about 85-90% of one AA, or one blue bubble normal EXP at 68.
is a gate needed

You do not get gated out of Charasis when you loot the book.

You have to find your own way out which is either a gate (or port) or to go through all of Charasis collecting the keys and then zoning out from the south wing.

The trigger for finding the rows of dead shissar for me was at -327, +245, -49

From the spot you zone in, it is NE towards the canyon..

There was a bug in my mission when i did it today. there were 2 salvemaster dryyl up, we had 4 tanks and 2 necros, we put 2 tanks on each necros healing whatever and Drain Soul 1 of the 2 mobs as soon as it pops due to Drain Soul taking no mana. Pets go on same mob u are Drain Souling it died fast, kill second mob.... we get 2 sets of arms. (each salvemaster dropped one)

You say, 'Hail, Historian Azern'

Historian Azern says 'Greetings to you, strange one. You look like the type who seeks out great quests of lore and myth, perhaps you would like to assist me in the retrieval of an ancient [book].

You say, 'What book?'

Historian Azern says 'Yes, I speak of The Green Fog, and ancient book once lost down in the Howling Stones. If you believe yourself to be worthy, seek out this artifact and return it to me. Legend has it that it tells a story of how the Iksar revolted against the Shissar empire right here, where you stand!'

zone into Howling Stones and kill "a pyre golem" to loot the book, "The Green Fog".


Other reward and a few tips

The Brown Scale Cloak is the other drop from this mission. I've done this mission 4 times and got each reward twice. I have a better cloak and my shaman can't use the arms so I can't say what item they transmute into though.

The Necromsncers are your healers on this mission so make sure you bring the two you are allowed. I have always done this mission with a full group but I'm pretty sure four could do it reasonably well, maybe three. Any less and it would be very slow going though.

The final battle with Slavemaster Dryyl is a little long but not hard. He has a lot of HP but doesn't hit very hard.

After the mission is over the fastest way out is to run into Warsliks Woods. Once you reach the zone line you will pop back at Historian Azern's location.
