Call of the Forsaken Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor



This is a shared task (1-6 players) that begins with Lady Lendiniara in the Ethernere Tainted West Karana. It is a one-time only task (not requestable once you have credit for it).

Pre-Requisites for Requesting:
- You must not have ever done this mission before.
- There is strongly conflicting, contradictory information about flag requirements:
--- Completing Partisan of Argin-Hiz

Known flagging to allow to request.

Completing Hero of Argin-Hiz.

Pre-Requisites for Participating:
- None known. You may participate if you have completed it before.



Summary

- Say "retrieve" to request the mission.
- Say "go" to zone in.
- Say "Lifeguide" to update the task.
- Say "return" to zone out.
- Hail Lendiniara to complete.



In Detail

Speak with Lady Lendiniara to request the mission:

You say, 'Hail, Lady Lendiniara'

Lady Lendiniara says '[Cultist], [soldier], adventurer... it does not matter who you are; soon we will all be dead. Soon there will be nothing left to save. The rifts widen and grow in number. Ethernere spills into this world. You say you have gathered all of the [relics]?'

You say, 'Cultist?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'The Doomscale...small minds drowning in grief and despair, clinging to my scales, struggling to keep their heads above downward currents. Though I am the cause of their suffering, I am not their salvation. Even now the [currents] rise above my own head.'

You say, 'Soldier?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'Ignorant men planning ignorant deeds. They will make war upon me, the destroyer of the Karanas, the bane of Qeynos. Not one of them has crept to the edge of the pit and seen for himself whether I bear these titles in truth! No, men will be swept away by the [currents] of fear and the blind belief in the commands of their superiors.'

You say, 'What currents?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'We will all soon drown in the mists that pour into these Karanas. The barrier I ruptured upon my [arrival] disintegrates. Your world is turning to gray. Everything shall be lost in [Ethernere]'

You say, 'What about your arrival?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'Recent events swirl in my mind like a gray thunderhead. My passage here was a flight through a great cloud of thunder, a cataclysmic cacophony. My vision still dims trying to recall all of it, but I shall endeavor to [recount] what I can.'

You say, 'What is the Ethernere?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'It is a world between worlds, the way station of the dead. Any being that dies, god or mortal, rides its currents to their eternal home. It is a vast stream, with infinite tributaries, flowing to all corners of existence. Most of the dead sail to their destinations in silent slumber, but some founder on the shores and linger. Perhaps they join the [Harrowing Horde] or wander endlessly.'

You say, 'Well, recount it!'

Lady Lendiniara says 'I came from a world much like yours. I recognize these lands as the Karanas I knew in my own time. That is the way of things: There must be a world for everything conceivable, for every possibility. And in my world there was also Kerafyrm. This sleeping dragon awoke, and he came to destroy me. I, the keeper of the Claws of Veeshan and wielder of chronomagic, was one of the first he tried to devour in his attempt to swallow the world. My chronomages readied my [retreat] to deny the Sleeper his victory.'

You say, 'How did you retreat?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'I flew past time itself. In a shell of magic I shot through the fabric of time and space, like an arrow loosed over a waterfall. I knew not where I headed as I plunged into the stream of Ethernere, rending a surface that is so nigh impenetrable to the living. As I coursed through its currents, I saw the throngs of the dead open their eyes and stare at my passage. I saw the Horde teeming at my tail. And I heard the [call] floating to me from a far off void.'

You say, 'The call?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'It was a sad voice, filled with despair and tinged with a growing madness. It called for me to meet it in the void, to bring to it the knowledge of one who has passed through the realm of the dead while yet living. He called me to tell him the secret of life and death, and he would unlock for me a trove of knowledge so vast that I could spend an eternity and not fathom half of it. This forsaken voice was the last I heard before I broke through the [other side].'

You say, 'The other side?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'When I ripped into your world, I brought with me the disaster you now see. Time, space, and Ethernere now bleed into your world, and likely into mine. In my attempt to save one world, it appears I have doomed all of them. As I lay here in the pit, exhausted from my arrival, I saw forms rushing around me: the Horde, the spirits of the dead, and powerful [creatures] whose beings radiated malevolence.'

You say, 'Tell me about the creatures'

Lady Lendiniara says 'While I was yet weak, one of these creatures stepped from the mists and stood before me, laughing cruelly before walking out of the pit. Many more like it must have passed into your world as I lay in a weakened slumber. It has already begun. The waters are [rising].'

You say, 'Rising waters?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'The Ethernere stream rushes through the gash I tore, filling up this world like a reservoir. No doubt the same will happen in my world. _____, we must repair the breach. I am no threat to you or the inhabitants of this land. I only wish to [stop] what I have set in motion, to undo the destruction my actions will bring. _____, we must heed the call.'

You say, 'How can we stop this?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'The portal behind you leads to the void, to the voice I heard. It may know how I can return to my own world and repair the barriers between the lands of the living and Ethernere. Hurry, before all is lost!'

You say, 'What about the Harrowing Horde?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'Even I know not the true nature of the Horde. Do the masses of lost dead fill their ranks? Did Ethernere itself give birth to them? I know the Horde are the keepers of Ethernere, maintainers of its purity. They see the dead to their resting places, and they cleanse the stream of anything that does not belong. The Gehein, Tirun, Skirth, and Orafik: You have seen them in the Karanas. My [arrival] has brought them here, and they continue to seek purity. As Ethenere seeps out, they will cleanse everything, and everyone.'

You say, 'About the relics, I have all of them...'

Lady Lendiniara says 'No, there is another. That dark elf woman, Lanys, speaks with Zebuxoruk, teasing from the Forsaken's riddles the locations of relics. The final [piece] lies beyond the rift, within the world from whence I came.'

You say, 'What piece?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'A staff most powerful, bound to that world. It is the [link] that will see me to my home and, fortune willing, repair the rift.'

You say, 'What is the link?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'I can see the threads connecting us across the abyss. I can chart the paths we must take to heal the great wounds in time and space. But nothing is certain as my reality bleeds into yours. Yet another [passageway] opens, and I ask you to traverse the abyss and return with the staff.'

You say, 'A passageway?'

Lady Lendiniara says 'I can feel the tug of my home world and hear a voice calling for answers from within the portal. My place is here, to await the ritual that can both send me home and avert the cataclysm. You must be the hands that clasp these drowning worlds and recall them to life. You must [retrieve] the staff!'

You say, 'I will retrieve it'

Lady Lendiniara says '[Go] now.'

You have been assigned the task 'A Guide Beyond the Rift'.

Lady Lendiniara has asked you to traverse the Ethernere and retrieve the most powerful relic from her world.

You say, 'Let's go!'

Lady Lendiniara says 'Return with the staff!'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Other Side of the Rift.



Speak with the holder of the staff 0/1 (Plane of Growth)

Task Window Says: Seek the holder of the staff within Lady Lendiniara's world.

Firiona Vie sits in what may seem like a familiar place...

You say, 'Hail, Firiona Vie'

Firiona Vie opens her eyes as she stirs from her meditation. She looks intently at your face. 'You stare as though you know me. Forgive me, adventurer, but you appear strange and unfamiliar. Your garb... it is as though you stepped out of the mists of time, a ghost arrived to condemn or warn us. [Which] is it?'

You say, 'Which is it?'

Firiona Vie pauses for a moment, weighing your words before continuing. 'I came here to contemplate. I can always tell when the seasons are about to change. Even before the snow begins to melt, through my Lifeguide I feel creatures stirring, returning to life. I know when the sleepers are about to [awaken].'

You say, 'Awaken?'

Firiona Vie says 'What you have told me -- the Sleeper, the Dragon, the cataclysm of Ethernere -- echo and amplify the whispers of the Lifeguide. If you speak the truth, soon my world will be as endangered as your own. However, whispers can be misheard, and strangers can lie.' Firiona Vie reaches for your hand and places it upon her staff. 'So that we may find the [truth].'

You say, 'What's the truth?'

Firiona Vie's eyes close, and her pupils dart beneath their lids. Her brow darkens as flashes of recent events flow through the staff from your mind to hers. She opens her eyes and draws the Lifeguide away from your hand. 'I had almost hoped you were a liar. I see how it must be. Lady Lendiniara must return to my world. She belongs in yours no more than I do. The [Lifeguide] shall journey with you.'

You say, 'The Lifeguide?'

Firiona Vie raises her staff and looks wistfully at its gem. 'Though I may never see the Lifeguide again, I commend its power to you. Without such sacrifice, all that we know will be swallowed in the gray night. [Return] to your world before regret overcomes me. I now have much to do here, for surely the actions I am about to take will one day send you to me at this very moment.'

Firiona Vie hands you her Lifeguide, and you store it away for the return to your world and the upcoming ritual.



Speak with Lady Lendiniara 0/1 (Ethernere Tainted West Karana)

Task Window Says: Firiona Vie has not yet seen the cataclysm occur in her world, and she must remain there to ensure events unfold properly to make the moment of your meeting possible. She has given you the Lifeguide to complete the ritual and close the rift. Tell Lady Lendiniara you have the staff.

You say, 'Ready to return...'

Firiona Vie says 'I pray to all the gods that soon we will sing the name of _____, who emerged from beyond the gray chasm and saved not one world but two!'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Ethernere Tainted West Karana.

Speak with Lady Lendiniara to complete the mission.

You say, 'Hail, Lady Lendiniara'

Lady Lendiniara says 'You have the staff; I can sense its power and the familiar essence of my world. The time has come to close the rift. You must see Zebuxoruk at once. Lanys and I shall meet you in the Void.'

You have obtained the final relic needed to send Lady Lendiniara back to her world and close the rift: Firiona Vie's Lifeguide. Lanys T`Vyl and Lady Lendiniara will meet you and Zebuxoruk in the Void.

We had completed all Mercenary achievements but NOT all Partisans (missing Partisan of Tower of Rot) and Hero of West Karana (Ethernere) II however Lady Lendiniara would not give us this mission. Per the advice in these threads we completed Hero of Argin-Hiz and then came back. Sure enough after completing this she offered us the mission. I'd bet money that Hero of Argin-Hiz (I.e. Vasser Fayeil's quests Ring of Fire and Burn Out are pre-requisites).

There is a lot of disinformation about what prog. you need to get this quest. From the info i gathered the key seem to be AH mission "Burn Out" and AH partisan task "The Keeper's Ring".

Having done the following will guarantee you get the quest as i had nothing else done when i managed to request it:

AH mission: Rings of Fire and Burn Out
AH partisan: Burning Curiosity, The Reclusive Collector and The Keeper's Ring.
ETWK mission: The Journey Home

My guess is that you dont really need the ETWK mission and first AH mission.
Burn Out

I'm pretty sure completing Burn Out (Argin-Hiz) is what's required in order to request this. I have completed all Mercenary, Hero, and Partisan tasks for all the CoTF zones except Burn Out, and Lady Lendiniara still won't give me the task for A Guide Beyond the Rift.

As further evidence of this, I also noticed in the achievement window, under Call of the Forsaken --> Progression --> Legend of the Call (Group), Burn Out is listed as the first of this series of 3 tasks (A Guide Beyond the Rift is 2nd in the list).

I have all Partisan and Mercenary tasks for all of CotF finished. All Hero missions are completed with the exception of the two Hero of Argin-Hiz missions Ring of Fire and Burn Out. I also have the Hero of West Karana 3 mission The Journey Home completed. Still not able to request this mission. Going to do the first Argin-Hiz mission Ring of Fire tonight and check again. Feeling pretty certain that at a minimum you need to have the Partisan tasks from Argin-Hiz and the Second of the Hero missions in both Tower of Rot and Argin-Hiz completed to request this mission. Not sure what else may be required yet in addition to those.

I'm _somewhat_ sure that the requirement for requesting this is, indeed, the Partisan of Argin-Hiz quest "The Keeper's Ring."

My alt enchanter was just able to request it, having done A-H Partisans up to that point only. Said enchanter does also have some CotF missions completed, but zero other Partisans or Mercenaries, in any zone of CotF.

Besides 3/4 of A-H Partisans, the chanter has the following missions:
The Doomscale Horde
Saving Jacyll
Xulous Prime
Houses of Thex
The Defense of Lendiniara
Hate Rising
The Fall of Lord Bayle
Rings of Fire
Burn Out
The Journey Home

I was unable to request this mission prior to completing "The Keepers Ring," after having already done the above missions.

As of today, July 4th 2015, I have absolutely ZERO partisan tasks done for this expansion, only did a few mercenary tasks here and there. 2 missions done; Burn out from argin-hiz, and the journey home, and I am able to request this task from her. I now have my Hero's Calling augment.
Feel free to send me tell in game to drinal.wildracer and I can link you my empty partisan achievements if you don't believe this.

Are there challenges tied to this, if so they should be tied to the related quests. Since a prerequisite is not completed, it seems important to do everything on the first run. ?????

Just about every bit of input we receive about this task's requirements (including the original information provided by EverQuest developers themselves) contradicts others.

- Tower of Rot Mission #2 is among the requirements.
- Tower of Rot Mission #2 is not a requirement.
- Argin-Hiz Mission #2 is the only mission required.
- A few Argin-Hiz partisan tasks are required.
- All Argin-Hiz partisan tasks are required.
- Argin-Hiz partisan tasks are not required.
- Neriak Mission #2 can be taken off the list.
- Put Tower of Rot back on the list.
- Could you repeat that?

At this point, it's, "Keep completing missions and partisans in COTF until you can request it."

It's possible that the only requirement is a certain number of task completions whereby it doesn't matter which ones they are as long as you reach a certain number. There is precedent for this sort of flag check, but it's rare (the Field of Scale theme in Seeds of Destruction used this method).

The requirements listing is 95% wrong.

The only mission requirement for requesting appears to be Argin-Hiz #2 (Burn Out), although I did also complete Argin-Hiz #1 (Rings of Fire) on alt I use to request this task for others, so uncertain if AH1 is also required.

However, in addition, the first 2 partisan tasks in Argin-Hiz are confirmed as required, and also must have at least started the 3rd partisan task:
Burning Curiosity
The Reclusive Collector
The Keeper's Ring

May not have to complete the 3rd partisan task, but must have progressed through it to at least the point of obtaining the ring about halfway through the keeper's ring task.

Note you can only request this mission by following actual hail text in order (can't skip ahead), and cannot request this mission again once you've completed it. If you are at the point of being able to request this mission, Lady's hail is as shown for the very first text:



Quote:

You say, 'Hail, Lady Lendiniara'

Lady Lendiniara says '[Cultist], [soldier], adventurer... it does not matter who you are; soon we will all be dead. Soon there will be nothing left to save. The rifts widen and grow in number. Ethernere spills into this world. You say you have gathered all of the [relics]?'

If you do not get the [relics] option when you hail Lady, you cannot request this mission. Follow the [relics] prompt line to request the mission.


This is correct to a point, I also had to finish Argin Hiz Part #3 (The Keepr's Ring) in order to request this. So the pre-requisites are the missions you have listed, along with the first 3 of the 4 partisan tasks in Argin Hiz. I cannot confirm though if you need any or all of the mercenary tasks in Argin Hiz as I had them completed when I got the mission.

You do not need to do The Fall of Lord Bayle (Tower of Rot Mission #2) to request this. I haven't done that one and was able to request
