This is the third group task in a series of three in which corruption among some Elddar elves is exposed. Completing this third task will allow you to request the raid task, The Corruption of Ro.

Find Shalowen the Pure in Elddar Forest at location -5, -127.

You say, 'Hail, Shalowen the Pure'

Shalowen the Pure says 'I have looked at the sealed document ____. Unfortunately there is no information about who made the figurine for Nalderin. However it did contain information about a [key] to enter the top portion of the shrine.'

You say, 'What key?'

Shalowen the Pure says 'The document says that the key can be created by fusing four pieces of scorned wood. Once you have this scorned wood you must take it too a [crafter] that I know.'

You say, 'What crafter?'

Shalowen the Pure says 'This crafter is a powerful orc. His name is Orgaf. Once you gather the magical pieces of wood, take them to him.'

You have been assigned the task 'The Key to Corruption'.

Search for Agrel the Scorned 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

Recover a magical piece of wood from Agrel 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

Search for Drekin the Scorned 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

Recover a magical piece of wood from Drekin 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

Search for Remlin the Scorned 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

Recover a magical piece of wood from Remlin 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

Search for Zorbig the Scorned 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

Recover a magical piece of wood from Zorbig 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

Find Orgaf the great orc crafter 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

Get Orgaf to craft the wooden key to unlock the shrine door 0/1 The Elddar Forest)

Recover the shrine door key 0/1 (The Elddar Forest)

This task takes place in The Elddar Forest. You must find and kill the following treants:

Remlin the Scorned: stationary and spawns many mezzable adds.

Drekin the Scorned: has five Protectors; located at +1119.71, -932.71, -56.17 facing east by Northeast.

Agrel The Scorned: a roamer near location -284.75, -841.00, -29.88 - roams around in a circle going towards the pond.

Zorbig the Scorned: Probably the easiest fight, located at -197.09, +1028.66, +14.00 (no adds, but has an AE root).

All of the named have an AE root DoT spell named Creeping Oak. They hit for 2200 while adds hit for 1400. Attacking adds will also provoke nearby forest animals to attack as well, so be prepared for that.

Each of the treants drops a scorned piece of wood. Bring the pieces to Orgaf the Crafter.

You say, 'Hail, Orgaf the Crafter'

Orgaf the Crafter says 'What you want with Orgaf?'

You say, 'Shalowen sent me'

Orgaf the Crafter says 'Shalowen! I can make a special key out of wood for friends of Shalowen. Only if you bring me the magical pieces of wood for key.'

Hand in all four pieces of scorned wood.

Orgaf the Crafter says 'You got the magical wood for Orgaf. Wait here and Orgaf make key.'

Orgaf now stands and flaps his arms for a couple of minutes. Then...

Orgaf the Crafter says 'Orgaf done with key. Orcs need it more.'

Orgaf the Crafter says 'The Tribe of the Nodgha shall crush you!'

He attacks. Kill him and loot the key.

Orgaf the Crafter's corpse says 'Lugnah curse your clan!'

--You have looted a Carved Wooden Key.--

Your task 'The Key to Corruption' has been updated.

You have recovered the key to the shrine. Travel back to Shalowen and speak with him. He will have further instructions for you.

Sceptre of Corruption dropped for my group when we finished, can't remember if it's from chest or from the mob you kill at the end....been a while since I've done it. Nobody else wanted the sceptre so I picked it up so it wouldn't rot. There's no normal or hard setting option for this task, although my bet is it's a bit on par with most dod lvl 70 spell progression Hard missions if not 5 times harder. Was fun but took a long time to finish with just the 4 of us.

I don't know if this was designed to be a single group task, but these guys are hard. Zemlin is fairly easy as he roams around by himself. Remlin took us three groups (although we miraculously got him to 10% with only a single group, but by then the adds were too numerous to convert so we brought in reinforcements). He spawns upwards of 10 adds, all of which have a 800DD AE... not bad in itself, but when you have almost a dozen of them casting it at the same time....

The remaining two Scorneds were found with about four adds each. The static one we were able to individually pull the adds, but the roamer they seemed to be linked so we just kited the adds while the group killed the named.
