|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group task is the first in a series of five and begins with the Shadowalker Dustspirit who can be found in the northwestern part of Stoneroot Falls at location -685, +850.
You say, 'Hail, Shadowalker Dustspirit'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'Something strange is going on. Elder Longshadow has been captured and will likely be enslaved by the evil in our lands like the rest of my clan -- even those who willingly chose to be slaves. I feel a strong presence from you. Would you seek to [aid] our cause?'
You say, 'I will aid you.'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'I knew the prophecies would hold true. They speak of outsiders coming to us in our moment of need. Yes, Elder Longshadow is the leader of this small Shadowmane resistance we have against the dark figure that has been placing a shadow upon our lands and enslaving my kind. Many Shadowmanes chose to serve the dark figure, but we saw the flaw in their quest for power. We will not join the bestial, uncivilized Ragepaws though. You must help find our elder and where she has been taken and free her. Take her this note so she knows you for a true friend.
There are three versions of this task: Hard High Level (group average level 66+); Normal High Level (66+); Low Level (65 and under). The only difference between them is the quality of loot and difficulty/levels of mobs.
You have been assigned the task 'Freeing an Elder'.
Receive Dustspirit's Note.
Find the cave entrance to the Hive 0/1 (Stoneroot Falls)
Task window says: Find a way into the drachnid hive and see what may have befallen Longshadow.
The entrance is marked on your compass. It is in the drachnid part of Stoneroot Falls.
Deliver the note from Dustspirit 0/1 (The Hive)
Task window says: It seems as though Elder Longshadow has been held prisoner here for some time. See if you can slip him [sic] the note from Dustspirit, as he may be wary of your motives.
Clear your way to the second tower. Elder Ritualist Longshadow is found inside the tower and up one floor. She does not respond to hails and says nothing upon handing her the note. Doing so updates the task.
Slay Taskmaster Shadowspin for a key 0/1 (The Hive)
Task window says: The drachnids have imprisoned him with special shackles that seem inpenetrable. The taskmaster must have the keys needed to release the shackles. Seek out the taskmaster!
Taskmaster Shadowspin spawns at a campfire a short distance in front of the tower. Multiple enslaved corpses spawn throughout the fight. They are unmezzable/unsnareable, but can be aggro kited.
Taskmaster Shadowspin looks at you with a malevolent hunger in his eyes.
Later into the fight:
The Taskmaster suddenly leaps into the air and lands several feet away and renews his attack.
Taskmaster Shadowspin says 'I control my slaves even after death! Rise, servant, and destroy these intruders!'
Rocks fly into the air as a corpse rises from the ground to do the Taskmaster's bidding.
an enslaved corpse lumbers forward with evil intent towards you.
You have slain Taskmaster Shadowspin!
Taskmaster Shadowspin's corpse has the fear of death frozen in its countenance.
Your faction standing with Scions of Dreadspire got worse.
Your faction standing with Shiliskin Empire got better.
Your faction standing with Free Traders of Malgrinnor got better.
Your task 'Freeing an Elder' has been updated.
Loot 1 Drachnid Shackle Key from Taskmaster Shadowspin 0/1 (The Hive)
Task window says: This must be the key. Quickly, use it to free Longshadow before the drachnids realize what has happened!
Deliver 1 Drachnid Shackle Key to Elder Longshadow 0/1 (The Hive)
Task window says: Once you free Longshadow, hurry back. Dustspirit must know what has been going on! Return to West Korlach and give her the good news.
Taskmaster Shadowspin will have a Drachid Shackle Key and an item of loot. Loot the Drachnid Shackle Key and take it back to Longshadow to complete the task.
Upon giving Longshadow the key:
Now that Longshadow has been freed, return to Dustspirit and give her the good news. There must be something bigger behind this kidnapping - we must find out what the drachnids are up to!
