|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|The Dain monster mission series may be completed in any order.
Dain`s Historian Duggans can be found in a small room near the throne area at the top of Icewell Keep. (He /cons Coldain faction, but will not attack no matter what your status. His roommate may, however.)
You say, 'Hail, Dain`s Historian Duggans'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'Welcome ______, welcome! It's always a pleasure to speak with an Outlander such as yourself. All Coldain appreciate the services you have rendered us and the blows you have dealt to our Giant foes. Have you come to learn more of our [history]?'
You say, 'What history?'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'The Coldain are a proud people, and with good reason! We have proven ourselves time and again in this unforgiving land, flourished and thrived. Of course all Coldain must acknowledge the [leadership] that has brought us through the dark times we faced.'
You say, 'Leadership?'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'Yes indeed, we have been blessed with leaders beyond compare. All Coldain know the story of Colin Dain, and I'm sure you have heard of our great first leader. But even after Colin fell the Coldain have always been guided as if by Brell's own hand through each Dain's reign. Would you hear more about [Dain Frostreaver the First]? Or perhaps [Dain Frostreaver the Second]? And who can forget [Dain Frostreaver the Third], the father of our current magnificent leader?'
You say, 'I want to hear about Dain Frostreaver the First.'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'Who can forget the great Dain Frostreaver the First? Certainly not I, and certainly you will not once you have heard of his [greatest triumph.] In a dark time he led us to this place and carved a home for us with his arm and his axe, driving before him the Giants that sought to bar our way.'
You say, 'What was his greatest triumph?'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'Well I could tell you about it, or I could show you. Would you like to [see for yourself]?'
You say, 'I would like to see for myself.'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'A wise choice indeed ______! Happily Brell has gifted me with the power to bring the exploits of our great leaders to life. Prepare yourself and let me know when you are [ready].'
You have been assigned the task 'The Founding of Thurgadin'.
After being forced to abandon the Crystal Caverns the Coldain were in search of a new home. Dain Frostreaver I led his people through the mountain pass to the Great Divide. There they found a new place to call home, but not before Dain himself and his five greatest warriors carved a space for his people through the Giants and wolves already there. Each Dwarf with our Dain knew that if the Dain were to fall it would be a blow too terrible for our people to bear. Thus did they guard him even as they brought the assault to the Giants. Relive Dain the First's greatest moment as he kills the three Giant Chieftains and the Giant Warlord.
Our scouts report three main clusters of Giants in this area. Each is commanded by a Chieftain, and all report to a single Warlord. Our first objective is to eliminate all three bands.
You are given a list of six dwarves you can play:
Dain Frostreaver I: Level 65 Paladin (required)
Faltan Brittleblade: Level 65 Warrior
Otan Restil: Level 65 Cleric
Brita Timus: Level 65 Cleric
Lothem Brightsteel: Level 65 Rogue
Brimhem Brightsteel: Level 65 Berserker
You say, 'Ready!'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Great Divide.
Kill the Kromzek Chieftains 0/3 (Great Divide)
Four giant scouts Kromzek Scouts protect one chieftain in three different areas. Each scout has approximately 75k hp. Each chieftain has approximately 200k hp and rampages frequently. There are two types. The shamans wear gold and rust armor. They cast the "Toxic Snare" spell, among others. The warriors wear light blue and metallic light green armor.
The first chieftain is in the fort by the wizard spires. He's in the center building, all by himself. The front entrance to the fort has one shaman scout and one warrior scout. The back entrance has two warrior scouts. Since you only need to use one entrance, most people just kill the the scouts at the front entrance, kill the chieftain, and leave by the same entrance.
The second chieftain is in the Southern part of the zone. He's near the river. He has two warrior and two shaman scouts as guards. Of the three cheiftains, this one is the most difficult because the shaman scouts can snare.
The third chieftain is by the druid port (aka dragon circle). He has four warriors as guards.
Fight throught the Heart Wolves 0/8 (Great Divide)
Eight heart wolves may be found near the entrance to Thurgadin. They are melee only and have approximately 60k hp apiece.
Slay the Warlord 0/1 (Great Divide)
The warlord spawns when the last heart wolf is killed. This allows you to setup before you kill the last one. Because of the warlord's knock back, the best place is in the cave behind the waterfall. He has approximately 400k hp, rampages, and procs a knockback/stun that happens every 20 seconds. The cave has hard corners that the tank can use for the knockback.
He drops a shield or ring, a coldain seal, and six shards of wisdom (loot this for experience).
The shield is a Reinforced Kromrif Buckler (ARTIFACT) and can transmute to:

Ornate Kromrif Buckler (level 41-50)
Runed Kromrif Buckler (level 51-60)
Reinforced Kromrif Buckler (level 61-70)
The ring is a Blue Diamond Kromrif Citizen's Ring (ARTIFACT) and can transmute to:

In addition to these rewards, a Portion of a Coldain Historical Seal drops every time. Turn this seal in to Dain`s Historian Duggans in order to receive an augmentation, based on your level (these are listed in order of level - need information on level ranges for each):
