|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group task is the fourth in a series of five (following the "A Plea for Help" task) 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 'Greetings _____, it is good to see you again. Your efforts with the Ragepaws have seen some success. They have agreed to meet with us again to discuss matters. However, there has been some [unrest] amongst the pack lately.'
You say, 'What unrest?'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says, 'Elder Ritualist Longshadow has been acting oddly of late. Some of the pack has become suspicious of her and are wondering about her devotion to our cause. To help quell their fears I had sent one of our scouts to follow her. He followed the Elder to the mushroom forest, but ran into some [trouble].'
You say, 'What trouble?'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'He was ambushed by a small group of drachnids. While he was able to fend them off they were able to injure him to the point that he is no longer able to effectively trail the Elder. If you are [willing] I would like to have you take over for him and keep an eye on the Elder while she is away from the pack.'
You say, 'I am willing.'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'You truly are a worthy friend. Please speak with Scout Whiteclaw for more information on where to find Elder Ritualist Longshadow. Please hurry though, we wouldn't want to lose her while we delay.'
There are three versions of this task: Hard High Level (group average level 68+); Normal High Level (68+); Low Level (67 and under). The only difference between them is the quality of loot and difficulty/levels of mobs.
You have been assigned the task 'Trailing Longshadow'.
Scout Whiteclaw was tasked with trailing Elder Longshadow. He was injured while tracking Longshadow in the Corathus Creep and is no longer able to continue. He has offered to show you where you can find Longshadow so you can continue the investigation.
Speak with Scout Whiteclaw 0/1 (Stoneroot Falls)
Scout Whiteclaw stands a few feet away from Shadowalker Dustspirit.
You say, 'Hail, Scout Whiteclaw'
Scout Whiteclaw says 'Welcome pack friend. I see Dustspirit has chosen you to continue my work. I would have continued following Elder Ritualist Longshadow, but I am not able to do so with my injuries. I can [show you] to her current location though.'
You say, 'Show me.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Undershore.
This teleports you into an instanced version of Undershore.
You are standing at the zone-in spot from Corathus Creep. Elder Ritualist Longshadow stands a short distance to the south, on the other side of the waterfall. "Trash" Mobs in the instance con higher level than in normal Undershore.
Trail Elder Ritualist Longshadow and see what you can discover 0/1 (Undershore)
Task window says: Follow Elder Longshadow and see if the suspicions of the pack are valid. Be sure to note any unusual activities.
A few minutes after zoning into the instance, you'll see this emote:
Elder Ritualist Longshadow says "I must be on my way, they may get suspicious if I'm gone for much longer".
...And she'll begin to move. Follow her from a distance (you may want to be invisible to avoid aggro from other mobs in the zone).
Get neither too close nor too far away.
If you do get too close the mission will abort:
Elder Ritualist Longshadow tries to tear out your throat.
Elder Ritualist Longshadow growls at you and curses beneath her breath. 'Stupid lackeys! Who are you to follow such as me? My loyalty is beyond question and outsiders of questionable allegiance such as yourselves would do well to remember that. Now leave me and do not trouble me again!'
Your shared task, 'Trailing Longshadow (Hard/Normal)', has ended.
Elder Ritualist Longshadow will periodically stop, at which point 2-4 Drachnid Assailants (usually three) will attack you. Elder Ritualist Longshadow will not start walking again until the last Drachnid is dead, so keep one mezzed if you need a med break.
Part of your journey (center of zone) will pass through an area with undead, so be ready with IVU.
During the journey, you will overhear Longshadow...
Elder Ritualist Longshadow says 'Yes, once I get back it will be time to begin turning them against each other. Perhaps if the annihilate themselves others will not be so quick to follow'.
Elder Ritualist Longshadow says 'I'll need to drag the Ragepaws further into this soon though. They did seem interested in helping bring their cousins out from under the thumb of the master'.
Elder Ritualist Longshadow says 'That would work out very well. I'll send them to look for another. If they find one I can move forward with the plan, and if not. . .well, at least the Hive will eat well.'
When Elder Ritualist Longshadow reaches the zone to Stoneroot Falls, she meets with a level 71 Drachnid Informant:
Elder Ritualist Longshadow nods to the informant, 'The plan has been going perfectly. The orb has been placed with the leaders of the faction and should beginning its effects as we speak. The Ragepaws have been contacted and we may be able to take care of them as well in this same effort.'
a drachnid informant says 'Are you stupid or just blind? You've been followed you fool! I will have to hear the rest of your report later. For now, return to the pack and continue as planned. I will take care of these intruders.'
Slay the drachnid informant 0/1 (Undershore)
Task window says: Slay the Informant! The informant must not be allowed to continue helping Longshadow destroy the pack.
Upon the informant's death:
Longshadow is a traitor! Dustspirit must hear this news. Make hate and return to the camp, there isn't much time if you wish to prevent Longshadow from causing amy further harm.
You gain experience!!
