|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This task begins with Citykeeper Nardic the Proud in the City of Dranik (located in one of the rooms near the zone-in). You must have at least indifferent faction with "Dragorn Forces" before you're able to request the task.
You say, 'Hail, Citykeeper Nardic the Proud'
Citykeeper Nardic the Proud says 'General Azerug has told me of your exploits, and I welcome your aid. I have heard that the Acolytes of Despair are not living up to their agreement with us. Before I allow the General to act against our citizens, I must have additional [information].'
You say, 'Additional information?'
Citykeeper Nardic the Proud says 'I will need more proof that the Acolytes are acting in bad faith; their preaching is annoying and unhelpful, but disposing of them en masse will lower the morale of the city even further. If we could establish that they are connected somehow to our Muramite enemies, and identify those among them who are trying to bring down the city from within, purging a few would be better than killing all of them, don't you [agree]?'
You say, 'I agree'
Citykeeper Nardic the Proud says 'In times such as these, we must always strive to do the greatest good for the greatest number, especially when there are fewer and fewer of us each day. Return to the Acolytes' chamber and speak with Balion. Profess your interest in joining the Acolytes, and then try and gain their trust to the point of learning who Balion reports to, or who he might be working with.'
You have been assigned the task 'Favors of the Hopelost'.
Return to the lodgings of the Acolytes of Despair and speak with Balion. Earn his trust further, then use him to get access to his other contacts who may be controlling him.
Speak with Scion Balion 0/1 (City of Dranik)
Balion is located at 1395, 740, 107.
You say, 'Hail, Scion Balion'
Your task 'Favors of the Hopelost' has been updated.
Scion Balion says 'It is good that you have earned our trust. You have performed services for us, we are one in Despair. Yet there is another task which will prove your worth to us. One among us requires a vial of blood from a dead Dragorn Priest of Hope each month to quench a curse which was placed upon him. Seek out Urjek the Unsteady; he will give you the vial of blood you must bring to Veshlin the Defamed. Speak not of this deed for it will not win you any friends among the city guard or with the Priests of Hope.'
Speak with Urjek the Unstead 0/1 (City of Dranik)
Urjek is located at 365, -1580, -191.
You say, 'Hail, Urjek the Unsteady'
Your task 'Favors of the Hopelost' has been updated.
Urjek the Unsteady says 'Bloods, bones, precious keepsakes of the damned, I collect them all. Make no room in your mind for my mutterings, they matter not in the end of all things. Destruction is our lot. You seek a vial of Dragorn blood, do you? For Veshlin, no doubt. Many thugs of Despair wait until late at night to kill or capture a Dragorn, and bleed his body for its precious essence. Much suffering and death, to keep one wretched Dragorn alive.'
Collect 1 Vial of Pious Dragorn Blood(s) 0/1 (City of Dranik)
You suspect that the Citykeeper would be displeased if you were to kill good Dragorn just to earn the trust of the cult of despair. Perhaps you can intercept one of the thugs skulking through the night and steal the fruits of their evil labors.
Kill Dragorn thugs (a few of which can be found roaming the City of Dranik) until one drops a "Vial of Pious Dragorn Blood" (common drop).
Deliver the Vial to Veshlin the Defamed 0/1 (City of Dranik)
Speak with Veshlin the Defamed 0/1 (City of Dranik)
You say, 'Hail, Veshlin the Defamed'
Veshlin the Defamed says 'I was a warrior who fought with the Muramites as soon as they appeared on Kuua. I watched thousands of our compatriots fall in the struggle to oppose them. No matter what tactics we used or methods we tried, they poured through their portals across space and time and inundated us with their vile attackers. There was never any hope of resisting the forces of Mata Muram. When I said as much, the Priests of Hope placed a curse upon me, which left me crippled and weak, and craving the blood of an innocent Dragorn to survive. By starting this cult I sought only to end the pointless suffering of our people, to terminate the futile resistance. Surrender and extinction is our lot; we must face our fate with honor. Take this as my reward.'
You receive Veshlin's Ring of Inner Strength.
Deliver 1 Veshlin's Ring of Inner Strength to Citykeeper Nardic the Proud 0/1 (City of Dranik)
Citykeeper Nardic the Proud says 'So. Veshlin the Defamed has returned from exile, and is manipulating the Acolytes to break the will of Dranik's defenders. I have seen your sacrifice and the measures you had to take in order to stay undercover. We shall forgive these circumstances for now. The General and I will need to discuss what must be done, but I have little doubt what that will be. Give me a moment, and then I will have new instructions for you.'
Your faction standing with Dragorn Forces got better. (+116 adjustment)
Your faction standing with Discordant Army got worse. (-116 adjustment)
Upon accepting the reward:
Your faction standing with Herald Argoth got better. (+29 adjustment)
Following this task is "A Limit to Despair".
