This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Daleynn Spiritshadow (click for map image) in the Dark Reign camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum level 59
- Minimum "indifferent" faction with Dark Reign

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

You have been assigned the task 'Scions of Thundercrest'.

You are amongst the first to travel into the very depths of Yar`Lir's lair and this is your chance to strike against her. Legend has it that there are three deadly scions that she controls. It is said that these scions can be commanded via three tomes of knowledge that are scattered amongst only the best and brightest within her collective.

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







Touch the portal to Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).



Find the Tome of the Wind 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Find the Tome of the Sky 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Find the Tome of the Storm 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must search out and recover the three tomes so that you can use them against the very creature who might otherwise command them against you.

The tomes are looted from "a sealed chest" which are scattered spawns throughout the temple entered from the zone-in point. It's possible these chests may appear at different locations in different tasks. Look in the side rooms as you make your way through the temple's halls.

One chest has been known to be in the first room to the east. Another in the first room down the hall to the west. Another is known to appear in the room at the end of the western hall.

With all three tomes recovered, head to the southeastern part of the zone (the maze area).



Kill the Scion of the Wind 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: The Tome of Wind may have clues as to unlocking the secret of the Scion of Wind. You should look through it and then confront the scion when you are ready.

The Scion of the Wind is at the entrance part of the maze (/loc -400, -2385, 295). Read the passage from the book to get it to attack:

You say, 'Kor Lal Lir Toval'

Scion of the Wind says 'You should not know those words! You will perish by my claw!'

It hits for a max ~1,300; summons; single-target rampages; and has ~100,000 hitpoints.



Kill the Scion of the Sky 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: The Tome of the Sky may have information that will aid you in fighting the Scion of the Sky. You should read through the tome so that its knowledge will be yours and then seek out and destroy the Scion of the Sky.

You'll be able to see the Scion of the Sky across the way from the Scion of the Wind's spawn point (/loc -205, -2485, 295). Read the passage:

You say, 'Nil Lal Lir Keval'

Scion of the Sky says 'You should not know those words! You will perish by my claw!'

The Scion of the Sky is of the same difficulty. It AE rampages.



Kill the Scion of the Storm 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You have uncovered the Tome of the Storm. Its contents should reveal to you the power to conquer the beast known as the Scion of the Storm. Look over it carefully and then search out the mighty scion and use its power against it.

The Scion of the Storm is located due south of the Sky's location (-685, -2570, 295). Read the passage to attack:

You say, 'Vek Lal Lir Qualal'

Scion of the Storm says 'You should not know those words! You will perish by my claw!'

This mob flurries.



Upon the death of the last scion, the task completes.

You have done well to find the tomes of the scions and use the very power that they were instilled with by Yar`Lir against them. Their deaths will leave an invaluable hole in her operations that you will be able to exploit in the time to come. Keep on your toes, however. Yar`Lir is a powerful being and has no doubt seen your attempts to destroy her and her kind.


Rewards:
Up to 44 Ebon Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Dark Reign Token" (faction turn-in item)

You have been given: Dark Reign Token
You have gained 44 Ebon Crystals.

General hints from an 89 bard soloing this: Go in the Dojo and follow the path around the west and south side, looking for the three lootable chests. Invis works for many but not all mobs. /open and /loot each chest to get the three books. Continue out the south-east side across the bridge to the east. All three scions are close to the bridge on the eastern island area. You can stand right under the scion and read the book if you need to, to get the key phrase right. The scions will ignore you until you say the right phrases.
