Speak to Indagatrix Salus Acilia in Lceanium up near the Scorched Woods zoneline tunnel.

You say, 'Hail, Indagatrix Salus Acilia'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia says 'Greetings Gidono. I've heard good things about you. If you are up to it, I have a [task:What task?] for you. The task may involve some [risk:I thrive on risk!].'

You say, 'What task?'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia says 'Great, Gidono. I noted the task in your journal. As mentioned, this task does involve some [risk:I still enjoy risk.] that I would be happy to explain.'

You say, 'I still enjoy risk.'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia says 'When we first came here, the great dragon [Gorenaire:Tell me more about Gorenaire] menaced the city. While she did not outright attack the city or any of it's inhabitants, she did sit atop a mount and [watch:She just watched?]'

You say, 'Tell me more about Gorenaire'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia says 'She is a magnificent white dragon. I have never seen anything as terrifyingly beautiful.'

You say, 'She just watched?'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia says 'She didn't just watch us. She would also [fly] over us.'

You say, 'fly'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia has a far away worshipful look in her eyes. 'She [was:What do you mean was?] simply majestic. She wouldn't just fly high above, she would glide regally through the great spires and let her tail brush the smaller spires.'
You say, 'What do you mean was?'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia says 'Well. A while ago she simply disappeared. She's no longer watching us, nor is she in the dreadlands nor with the other dragons. She [vanished:A dragon vanished?].'

You say, 'A dragon vanished?'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia says 'Yes. And that is your task. Use whatever means you can to find her. Start your search near the entrance to the yeti caves. From there see where the path leads you. Be warned that you may need to kill some of the beings in the area to find what has become '

You have been assigned the task 'Disappearing Dragons'.



  1. See if you can find any traces of Gorenaire near the yeti cave

    In front of the Yeti cave in the southeast part of the zone, stand at location: -965, -1502, 56 and you will receive yellow text stating "You continue to carefully search the area.". Stand there for a minute until the task updates.

  3. See if you can find any traces of Gorenaire near the wizard spire

    Stand in the middle of the wizard spire at location 1348, 1444, -56 in the northwestern part of the zone until the task updates.

  4. Follow the trail

    A trail should appear however it didn't for me, but a red X appeared on the map. Before you get there be prepared to kill 4 drakes. They will attack you as soon as you reach the spot at the island in the middle of the lake.

  5. Defend yourself and kill the Drakes coming after you 0/4

    Kill all 4 of an aggressive drake.

  6. Follow the trail

  7. Ask the guard if they have seen anything [unusual]

    When going up the ramp, the guard on the right, say unusual to this guard and then go through the rest of the dialog.

  8. Follow the trail

    On your map again should be a red X inside the main temple in the center of the city.

  9. Ask the golem if it has seen anyone out of [place]

    Target the golem and say place and follow the dialog.

  10. Follow the trail

    Another red X appears on your map at the harried page.

  11. Ask the page if it has seen anyone [suspicious]

    Target the harried page and say suspicious. Follow the dialog.

  12. Follow the trail

    A red X appears on your map again to the south of the city at the entrance of the Drachnid tunnels.

  13. Kill Drachnid to look for clues 0/10

    Kill 10 Drachnids.

  14. Go into the Scorched Woods

    Scorched Woods tunnel is in the northeast corner of Lceanium. This step will update in Scorched woods as you zone over from Lceanium.

  15. Ask one of the salus soldiers if they have seen anyone [suspicious]

    Target one of the salus soldiers at the entrance, one standing at the dirt path, close to the quest NPCs: Strategus Pommori and Domina Caelestis and say suspicious and then go through their dialog.

  16. Follow the trail

    Another red X appears on your map up in the northeast section of the zone, go to it.

  17. Kill sarnak to look for clues 0/10

    Kill 10 Sarnak's up in the northeast section of the zone towards Chardok.

The only salus soldier that I could get the 'suspicious' dialogue tree with was the one standing at the dirt path, close to the quest NPCs: Strategus Pommori and Domina Caelestis.

If at any point you lost your map, drop quest and restart it. I could not find another way.

I disagree. Whenever you get a task stage with a map trail, make a mental note of where you need to go (or take a photo/screenshot) and if you then lose the guide, just refer to your picture.

This quest still appears to be bugged if you don't complete it all at once... Is this the case??? I cannot find the path to the original four drakes again... I really can't recall many quests that I've done that were this broken, though I'm sure there are many... Guess they need twenty years to get rid of the bugs...

two toons

Both of my toons had the task. I decided not to get the wiz spires update for one to avoid multiple spawns.

When I got all four updates on the other toon, they both got the path and each (separately) got credit for the remaining steps of the task (I did through drachnids).

When I went back to get the wiz spires and drakes for the other toon, I got the path. Once I followed it and got the update, one aggressive drake appeared and that toon got credit for following the path and already had credit for killing the drakes (before they were revealed). Couldn't even spawn more than one aggressive drake (though, didn't need).

Then .. off to scorched woods .. all finished :)

Target the harried page and say suspicious. Follow the dialog.


12.Follow the trail

A red X appears on your map again to the south of the city at the entrance of the Drachnid tunnels.


Unfortunately for whatever reason, player no longer neither has the trail nor the red x. So the question is where is the checkpoint that turns the quest from follow the trail to kill spiders. Player reports confronting three spiders stationed in the wide part of the entry to the spider caves just before the path narrows to the actual spider trails. Is it there?

It should be at the entrance of the tunnel.
Drakes bugged?

It appears that the drake part is bugged, I spawned 4 and got over 40... people are saying that if someone else dies and doesn't complete there 4 add on, so it appears there have been several deaths and when you spawn them, you get whatever leftover there are....

Another quality quest working as normal....

Cannot progress due to unknown faction

Cannot get past this step, somehow I am at dubious faction when conning a soldier at Scorched Woods entrance. Soldiers will not give me the dialog so I cant progress and don't know how to raise that faction, any ideas?

Target one of the salus soldiers at the entrance and say suspicious and then go through their dialog.

Try doing some mercenary quests in Katta Castrum: Deluge or killing Sarnak's in Chardok [EoK version], they give faction hits for New Combine which is what faction those NPC's are on.
