This is the final task in a series of six. The tasks must be completed in order, and may be repeated after completion.

Upon completing the previous task, speak with Akins:

You say, 'Hail, Akins'

Akins says 'Now that we know that the giants have something to do with the area, I feel we are getting closer to [solving] this mystery, friend!'

You say, 'Solving the mystery?'

Akins says 'Thankfully my knowledge for spirits shall come in handy. Here is a [wand] that can help us get to the bottom of this. It can compel the dead to speak, to tell their tale. With this, you should be able to find out just what happened.'

You have been assigned the task 'The Everburning'.



You say, 'What wand?'

Akins says 'Yes, you need to know, however, that the wand will need to be [attuned] to the magical properties of the area before it can take affect upon those that linger there. I suggest taking the wand to that mysterious fire and trying to attune it that way.'

You say, 'Attuned?'

Akins says 'Once attuned properly, the wand should be able to compel a spirit to talk to you. Unfortunately there is a [slight problem] with the power of the wand.'

You say, 'What slight problem?'

Akins says 'Yes, the power of the wand is not strong enough on its own to overpower the madness that controls most spirits. You will have to weaken the spirits of the giants somehow. Furthermore, the wand will not work on just any spirit. So you will need to find the right one by pure luck. . .which I am sure you have plenty of! So fear not.'

Head back to the crater in Blightfire Moors, and the task should update.

The spirit wand begins to glow.

Your task 'The Everburning' has been updated.

Now that the Spirit Wand is attuned you will need to find a zombie giant that the Spirit Wand will work on. You do this by fighting down any zombie giant you find to around 20% and under then click the wand to see if the mob will talk to you. Pull them into the crater to ensure they talk to you.

a blightfire never rest says 'Who seeksss to [disturb] usss?'

You say, 'I disturb you'

a blightfire never rest says 'We. . .who have fallen from grace. . .we who must [atone] for our sinsss against our [lord].'

You say, 'Atone?'

a blightfire never rest says 'Bound to wretched area are we. . .trapped between the living and the dead are we. Never to rest. . .never to die. . .never to find peace.

You say, 'Your lord?'

Your task 'The Everburning' has been updated.

a blightfire never rest says 'Rallosss. . .it was he that we disobeyed. . .it was hisss call to battle that we did not harken to. . .it was he that punished us so. Now we wander. . .till he forgivesss usss.'

Return to Akins and hail him.

You say, 'Hail, Akins'

Your task 'The Everburning' has been updated.

You tell Akins the story that the spirit repeated back to you and it seems to relieve you of some sort of heavy burden, as if by repeating the story, you have somehow lightened the heavy penance the spirit was carrying by relaying his tale. Akins thanks you for uncovering the mystery of that area but warns you to never return lest Rallos turn his attention towards you.

You have successfully been granted your reward for: The Everburning
You gain experience!!

I was standing on the edge of the crater pulling the giants to me - when I finally got one to respond to the wand, but he would not respond to 'disturb' until I actually moved down into the crater.

Return to the crater to attune the wand - 0 / 1 - Blightfire Moors
standing in the crater, click the Spirit Wand and it will change into an Attuned Spirit Wand

Use the wand on the zombies until you find one to reveal the secrets of the area. - 0 / 1 - Blightfire Moors
Target a nearby zombie and click, he will stand still. Converse.
Any buddies of his won't be so amiable. OT or ignore if able and finish your conversation.
When the conversation is over the zombie you have compelled is at rest and dies.


Tell Akins of what you have learned - 0 / 1 - Crescent Reach
hail for the final update and reward. And hey, you can keep the Attuned Spirit Wand.

Did not get the wand energized until I went to the bottom center of crater.

ALSO: Once i get the dialogue started the mob began to wander off. So, type fast before you attract adds.Smiley: schooled

Thought the quest was nerfed, but all I had left to ask the thing was Atone?

Got the update.

Try Walkers or Never Rests, not Mere Wanderers

I tried clicking the wand while fighting a number of Blightfire Wanderers, with no success. (The emote was that the zombie did not seem to be affected by the wand.)

I tried it on a Blightfire Walker and it worked. The walk-through above shows the dialog was with a Blightfire Never Rest. It might be that only those two types will respond to the wand.

Incidentally, when I clicked the wand while targeting a Walker, a nearby Wanderer caught sight of me and aggro'd, so I had to fight him first. When I came back, the Walker was still there, did not aggro, and when I got within speaking range, responded as above, even after a delay of several minutes.

Oh, and for those who might have been as dim as I was at the beginning, the wand must be in a single inventory slot, not a container, to activate. Right-click to cast the Lore Siphon spell -- a casting progress bar will appear -- and then wait for results. It can be cast before attacking the target, just be prepared for neighboring giants to aggro....

After completeing the last quest:

Presumably, you can repeat parts of the quest by asking him to reexamine the clues.. (confirmation needed either way)


after completing this task, he does not mention Anything about 'reexamine' to me. here is the text he gave me after i was done all his quests, it would seem None of his quests are repeatable? so choose your prize carefully for this

[Sat Aug 18 07:23:43 2007] You say, 'Hail, Akins'

I got this to work on the first click without even attacking the giant... looks like all you got to do is find a willing victim. =)

Guess I was lucky, my first giant was the one the wand worked on. at 80% I fired the wand, got message that he was unaffected, casted it again at 50% then he talked to me and then despawned after the conversation. The quest could not be repeated by saying reexamine.

If you respond to [lord] with just "lord" it will not update. You need to say "your lord".

After getting the reward and hailing akins, this is what you get:

You say, 'Hail, Akins'
Akins says 'Vasha, _____. I can't believe you were able to discover the truth of the marsh. Great work, you have served us well.'

I tried saying "reexamine the clues" and there was no response, so looks like it now fixed to be not repeatable........shame.

So I got mob down to under 20% (was a never rest), and clicked wand and got a message about it ignoring the wand. I clicked again on the same mob and it started to speak... so try the wand more than once.

BTW I also could not repeat the quest.
