This is the first in a series of three; a solo task that begins with Nadja Irespine in the Resplendent Temple, located at 2715, 320, -37 (northwestern part of the zone, on the outside of the temple -- from Sarith, go across the bridge, then head north along the west wall of the temple).
Pre-requisites for requesting the task:
- No tasks
- 73 Skill Level in Alaran
You say, 'Hail, Nadja Irespine'
Nadja Irespine flashes an inviting smile as al waves you forward, 'Come traveler, share our fire and share your story. You must be weary from your journey. Many have come from distant lands to worship at the [temple].'
You say, 'What about this temple?'
Nadja Irespine tilts alir head toward the sky and with lightly closed eyes takes in a slow, deep breath. 'It's magnificent, isn't it? This place is filled with an energy I've never experienced before. Although my tired eyes won't ever [witness] what beauty lies within the temple, in my bones I can feel its luster.'
You say, 'Witness?'
Nadja Irespine solemnly stares at the ground while alir voice takes on an undeserving tone, 'Only the chosen may enter the temple; those of pure mind and body known as the [Nitore]. They pray to Ladrys, the epitome of splendor, and bask in the perfection al exudes.'
You say, 'What is the Nitore?'
Nadja Irespine beams as al begins to speak fondly of the sect that occupies the temple. 'The Nitore are gentle and orderly. Ascended beings who are filled with a light so pure, they have no worries or weaknesses. It's a state so many of us wish to attain, yet is likely out of reach for ordinary Alarans who do not possess the [essential spark].'
You say, 'Essential spark?'
Nadja Irespine continues with greater fervor, 'The essential spark is something that the Nitore look for when accepting members into their ranks. If it exists, it means that the bearer of the spark has the ability to ascend to the state of being in which the Nitore thrive; it means that you might even be able to hear the sentry stones!' The aging Alaran sighs, taking a moment to calm the excitement brewing in alir veins. 'It is a rare thing, you know, this essential spark, but something that we're all willing to [discover] within aleselves.'
You say, 'Discover what?'
Nadja Irespine says, in Alaran, 'Nitore chancellors are the only ones who can detect the spark, but earning an audience with one of them is not an easy feat. You have to understand, many believe they have the spark, but only a few actually possess it.' The kind Alaran smiles warmly, 'My kin is among the lucky few who have ascended. Al proved alir worth by fighting many battles in this very grove. They say only a weapon wielded by someone with the essential spark can defeat the diseased that lurk nearby. If you're hoping to [prove] yourself as well, you should try to join the other recruits in their hunt. They crossed the bridge into the grove only this morning. They shouldn't be far.''
You say, 'I can prove myself'
Nadja Irespine says, in Alaran, 'Best of luck.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Light Within'.
Join the other recruits who are hunting diseased creatures on the outer portion of the grove near the temple.
Locate the recruits hunting in the grove 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)
You'll find "a diseased recruit" on the east side of the zone (outer edge of the grove area) at about 2150, -1225. Don't approach him until you're ready for battle. Upon standing on his location, two diseased mobs spawn. These are just trash mob difficulty.
Defeat the diseased creatures surrounding the recruit 0/2 (Resplendent Temple)
Note: These two mobs despawn a short time after appearing. If this happens to you, you can kill any two diseased creatures in the zone for this update.
Speak to the diseased recruit 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)
Upon hailing, he turns into "a Nitore recruit":
a Nitore recruit looks down at alir flesh-colored hands in disbelief. 'I'm... I'm alive. How is this possible? I felt my body die and decay!' With slight hesitation, the fully recovered recruit continues, 'You must visit the temple. Chancellor Corcelia would be very interested in meeting you.' Overcome with shock, the grateful recruit pauses before running toward the temple.
Make your way to the temple 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)
Task Window Says: The diseased recruit you found in the grove insisted you visit the temple and speak with Chancellor Corcelia.
This step updates as you approach the temple entrance.
Speak to Chancellor Corcelia within the temple 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)
Hail Chancellor Corcelia just inside the temple's front doors.
Chancellor Corcelia looks you over with a skeptical eye. 'So you're the one a recruit spotted in the grove. They claim you have the spark within you.' The doubtful Nitore continues to peer at you, alir head tilting to the side. 'It's a rare thing for someone other than a chancellor to spot the essential spark. You'll have to excuse me for not taking the word of an untrained eye too seriously. We din't extend invites to just anyone, you know. Each must earn their way into the temple, even those who claim to possess natural gifts.' Chancellor Corcelia forces a strained smile as al continues, 'Head into the grove and defeat many diseased creatures that plague our pristine lands. If the spark exists, you should be able to purge the decay from the wretched beasts and return it to me for prompt disposal.'
Kill diseased animals within the grove 0/6 (Resplendent Temple)
Task Window Says: To test if you possess the essential spark, you must kill diseased animals within the grove and purge the decay from their bodies. Collect a soiled essence to serve as proof of your actions.
Return a soiled essence Chancellor Corcelia 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)
Kill and six diseased mobs and loot their soiled essence (pre-lootable), then return it to the Chancellor.
Chancellor Corcelia appears slightly agitated at your return, but manages a polite grin. 'It appears you have succeeded, _____. So the spark may exist within you after all.' The curt Nitore pauses for a moment, caught in contemplation. With an affirmative nod, al continues, 'Yes, the spark does exist within you, though it is very dim. I fear that it maj bo extinguished by the decay that plagues your mind and body. ot is only through careful meditation that you will be abne to grasp the essential spark wi hin.' The Chancellor extends a frail limb into the air, pointing to the left. 'Yau'll find our prophet, Lesir, in tho mebitation room. Al will helr you overcome the darkness that suppresses your spark.'
Speak to Lesir the Seer 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)
Task Window Says: Lesir the Seer will help you confront the decay that festers within your mind and body.
Lesir the Seer is found in the small room just east of Corcelia. NOTE: Don't hail Lesir the Seer until you're ready for a fight.
You say, 'Hail, Lesir the Seer'
Lesir the Seer doesn't seem surprised by your presence. With eyes closed, al places als hands on your shoulders, sending a wave of relaxation through your body. You feel a strange force tug at your soul...
a mirror image takes on a familiar form.
"a mirror image" spawns and attacks. It hits hard and fast (~11,000) and is immune to mez/stun.
Overcome the decay that plagues your mind and body 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)
Task Window Says: You must battle the decay within in order to emerge purified.
Kill the mirror image for the update.
Return to Chancellor Corcelia 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)
Task Window Says: Now that your mind and body have been purified, speak once again to Chancellor Corcelia within the temple.
You say, 'Hail, Chancellor Corcelia'
Chancellor Corcelia welcomes you with a genuine smile, 'Your spark is much brighter than it was when you first stood before me. I can only assume this means you were successful in your quest to expel the darkness and decay from your mind. That feat deserves a reward. _____, I present you with your Nitore Initiate Robes. Welcome to the Chosen. May Ladrys bystow alir radiance upon you.'
The essential spark has been found within you, allowing your ascent into the Nitore's ranks.
You receive "Nitore Initiate Robes".
