|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group task is the fifth task in a series of five (following the "Trailing Longshadow" 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 'It's good you've returned to us. Elder Ritualist Longshadow was here not long ago and in an unusual rush. She's normally very calm and collected, but this time was muttering to herself and only paused to ask where the orb was. After your latest findings I only wish we had stopped her before she left. If my suspicions are correct our cause could be in [dire straights].'
You say, 'Dire straights?'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'While you were trailing Longshadow several of the pack began to act strangely. They began to suggest and even demand that we rejoin the rest of the Shadowmane pack. Those who were the most vehement about this were the ones assigned to study the orb. It is my suspicion that the orb was slowly subverting my pack and would have been the end of us had Longshadow not taken it when she left for the [den].'
You say, 'Den?'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'After taking the orb Longshadow left for the Ragepaw den. The reports from our scouts say that she claimed to be one of our ambassadors and was allowed entrance into the den. Shortly after she entered a large number of drachnids attacked the den and disappeared inside. Nothing more has happened outside the den since then, and we have grown concerned for our cousins. After the work you have been doing for us we would like to ask for your [help] one last time.'
You say, 'I'll help'
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'The pack would be in dire straights without you _____. We need you to venture into the Ragepaw den and discover what is going on. Do all that you can to return things to normal and bring that accursed orb back to be destroyed.'
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 'Confronting a Traitor'
Elder Longshadow was last seen entering the Ragepaw den and has not been seen since. Find a way into the den and see what is going on there.
Enter the Ragepaw den 0/1 (Undershore)
The instance entrance is a door in the Ragepaw area of Undershore. Click to zone into Snarlstone Dens.
Find the orb 0/1 (Snarlstone Dens)
Search the den for Longshadow and the orb. If Longshadow manages to escape with the orb again there is no telling what harm she could cause.
There are three side rooms in the dens. One of these has a chest with the orb. It is guarded by two unmezzable drachnid guardians.
Find and confront Elder Ritualist Longshadow 0/1 (Snarlstone Dens)
Elder Ritualist Longshadow is found in the throne room. Upon clearing the room and approaching her:
Elder Ritualist Longshadow shouts 'You are persistent, I'll say that much. Your reward shall be death, of course, just as it was for the dogs that once controlled this place. You now know my true form and eventually will deduce my intent. Your corpses shall host my children.'
Elder Ritualist Longshadow transforms into a drachnid.
Kill 1 Elder Ritualist Longshadow 0/1 (Snarlstone Dens)
Longshadow is a skinwalker! She must have been switched when the drachnids abducted the real Longshadow. Kill the imposter and free the Ragepaws from her influence!
On aggro: Elder Ritualist Longshadow tries to tear out your throat.
Longshadow hits for a max ~2,200 (on hard) or ~1,500 (normal); summons. She casts the spell "Call of Shadows":
Call of Shadows: PB AE 50', Magic (-300)
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 50 per tick
At 70%, 50%, and 30% health she will teleport to each of the side rooms in the den. Make sure you have cleared all the drachnids in those rooms and along the path before engaging her.
On first port, at 70%: Elder Ritualist Longshadow shouts 'You shall not kill me this day.' She steps into her own shadow and fades away.'
On second port, at 50%: Elder Ritualist Longshadow shouts 'You have proven your persistence, now leave this place or I will be forced to destroy you.' She steps into her own shadow again and disappears.'
On third port, at 30%: Elder Ritualist Longshadow shouts 'Will you never stop!' She steps into her shadow with an angry look on her face.'
Note: Upon porting away she strips all her debuffs and drops aggro. She regens quite slowly.
You have slain Elder Ritualist Longshadow!
Elder Ritualist Longshadow's corpse sinks to its knees before toppling over.
Your task 'Confronting a Traitor' has been updated.
With Longshadow dead and the orb in your possession the danger has passed for Dustspirit's pack. Return the orb to Dustspirit so they may insure this particular trouble does not return to haunt them.
(Opt) Return the orb to Shadowalker Dustspirit 0/1 (Stoneroot Falls)
Return the orb to Dustspirit. She will want to see it destroyed.
Shadowalker Dustspirit says 'This is terrible news. At least the imposter has been slain and will not cause further harm. I can only hope that the real Longshadow met a quick end. The drachnids are skilled at dragging out a death. Regardless, I will see this orb destroyed as soon as possible. It will no longer be able to influence any of my pack.'
