    General Overview of the related tasks:

    So, this quest and the others related to it (Return Aerigin's Cloak to the Wraithguards, Return Firgant's Copper Ring to the Wraithguards, Return Aethmir's Pendant of Zek to the Wraithguards, and Return Skalmarg's Torn Leather Pendant to the Wraithguards) all work the same way. After any non-shade undead mob (a blighted icecaller, a corrupted remains, a crumbling ascetic, a fallen Krithgar warrior, a moldering corpse, a mummified spiritist, and a rotting Krithgar soldier) in Frostcrypt is killed, there's a chance that a mob called "spirit of xxx" will spawn. When hailed, they each lead you through the same dialogue chain:

    ---------

    You say, 'Hail, spirit of xxx'

    spirit of xxx says 'Thank you for freeing me. I have gathered together, at great cost, the strength to stand before you for a moment. I am grateful for the sweet release you have granted me but I ask one additional [boon].'

    You say, 'boon'

    spirit of xxx says 'My people believe that to pass peacefully into the next world we will need to bring with us items of wealth and power. To this end we are interred with items of special meaning or power. The foul shades that now haunt this hallowed place care nothing for the sacred nature of these artifacts, just as they refuse to grant us the peace of death. They have [stolen] our artifacts!'

    You say, 'stolen'

    spirit of xxx says 'Now that you have freed me from my slavery to the Shades I will pass Beyond. Before I do I would ask you to [retrieve] the items stolen from me and return them to my kin. If you find my treasures you may give them to any of the Wraithguards. They will be able to deliver the items to my kin.'

    You say, 'retrieve'

    spirit of xxx says 'Thank you Soandso. May you find peace in this life and the next.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Return (item name) to the Wraithguards'.

    ---------

    If you already have the task that a particular spirit can give you, then the spirit will simply despawn and you can move on.

    The names of the spirits and the tasks they assign are as follows:

    spirit of Thontik assigns Return Thontik's Blade to the Wraithguards.
    spirit of Aethmir assigns Return Aethmir's Pendant of Zek to the Wraithguards.
    spirit of Kalmaer assigns Return Skalmark's Torn Leather War Banner to the Wraithguards.
    spirit of Haridok assigns Return Aerigin's Cloak to the Wraithguards.
    spirit of Thurgant assigns Return Firgant's Copper Ring to the Wraithguards.

    Not sure why some of them assign the task for their own item, while others assign tasks for someone else's item, but there we are. The items themselves drop from the shade model undead mobs (a shade of Zek, a shadow priest of Zek, a shadowblade of Zek, a shadowcaller of Zek, a soldier of Zek, and a spirit of Zek) in Frostcrypt, and can be pre-looted. Upon returning any of the items to any wraithguard (I usually go with Wraithguard Sergrant Thavin, since he's right outside the entrance to Frostcrypt), you get the following text:

    Surely the soul of that ancient giant has gone to rest and is grateful for your help
    You gain experience!!
    You have successfully been granted your reward for: Return (item) to the Wraithguards

    The reward is always exp (something like 25-30% of an AA at level 86) and 10x Vial of Gooey Black Gel, which, when clicked, gives you a proc that does damage only against the shade model undead mobs in Frostcrypt, and stacks with other buff-type procs (like Devout Fury).

    ------------

    Specific to Return Firgant's Copper Ring:

    This task begins with the spirit of Thurgant, a skeleton NPC who spawns randomly from the corpses of undead giants in Frostcrypt.

    spirit of Thurgant says 'Thank you for freeing me. I have gathered together, at great cost, the strength to stand before you for a moment. I am grateful for the sweet release you have granted me but I ask one additional [boon]'

    You say, 'What boon?'

    spirit of Thurgant says 'My people believe that to pass peacefully into the next world we will need to bring with us items of wealth and power. To this end we are interred with items of special meaning or power. The foul shades that now haunt this hallowed place care nothing for the sacred nature of these artifacts, just as they refuse to grant us the peace of death. They have [stolen] our artifacts!'

    You say, 'Stolen?'

    spirit of Thurgant says 'Now that you have freed me from my slavery to the Shades I will pass Beyond. Before I do I would ask you to [retrieve] the items stolen from me and return them to my kin. If you find my treasures you may give them to any of the Wraithguards. They will be able to deliver the items to my kin.'

    You say, 'I will retrieve them.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Return Firgant's Copper Ring to the Wraithguards'.

    spirit of Thurgant says 'Thank you ______. May you find peace in this life and the next.'

    Return Firgant's Copper Ring to the Wraithguard

    You can return this item (and the other items - Thontik's Blade, Aethmir's Pendant, Skalmarg's Torn Leather War Banner) to ANY Wraithguard - including the two standing outside FC.

    The result is always 10 of the potions (for all 4 tasks) and a decent amount of aaxp.
