Hail him to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Death Comes Swiftly'.

The local spiders are hampering our ability to move operatives through the area safely. Reduce their numbers. Frankly, we don't care if you eliminate them all.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

Touch the cave entrance to The Ascent 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass. It's found in the snowy mountain area west of the non-instanced entrance to Stillmoon Temple.

Kill 10 crevice weavers 0/10 (The Ascent)

Kill 5 crawling warders 0/5 (The Ascent)

Kill 1 Lair Mistress 0/1 (The Ascent)

From the zone-in, head to a cave about halfway up to bottom half of the zone (right side). You'll find the Lair Mistress in an alcove at the back of this cave once you have killed your quota of crevice weavers and crawling warders. You should get the necessary kills as you make your way up.

"crawling warder" mobs proc "Spider Venom":

Spider Venom: Single Target, Poison (-17)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 21 (L1) to 125 (L105) per tick
2: Increase Poison Counter by 1 (L1) to 36 (L105)

The Lair Mistress hits for a max ~1,200; AE rampages; is immune to mez and stun; and casts "Arachnae Venom", "Venomed Mist", and "Paralyzing Venom":

Arachnae Venom: Single Target, Poison (-30)
2: Decrease Movement by 41% (L1) to 95% (L16)
3: Decrease Hate by 150

Venomed Mist: PB AE 400', Poison (-300)
1: Decrease Mana by 50 per tick
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 500 per tick
3: Increase Poison Counter by 36

Paralyzing Venom: Single Target, Disease (0)
1: Feign Death, 87% Success Rate
2: Stun (1.00 sec)

Lair Mistress has been slain by _____!
Lair Mistress's corpse falls to the ground in an expanding puddle of green blood.

Good. Now our forces can move through the area unimpeded.

Up to 29 Ebon Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Dark Reign Token" (faction turn-in item)
