There are 5 NPCS along the spider web pathing. Each have the same name and look alike each give a different quest. As you face the gate straight from zone in you want the bottom left path on the map for the Trial of Three.

Hail, 'Waves of Saffron Sky'

Your Location is 24.46, 363.52, -70.37

Waves of Saffron Sky says, 'Ah, so we have another that must prove their worth. If this is the challenge you chose, simply tell me when you are [prepared]. And should you be in need, I can tell you what you [must do] as soon as it has begun.'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, 'Until you are [prepared] to make this your chosen challenge, I cannot tell you what you must do.'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, 'We have already begun. Choosing to remain here and chat will not help you. Is it that you do not know what [must do]?'
If you say that you are, then so you must be.'

You say, 'prepared'

These are a few examples of the hints she will give you to determine the order you need to kill the three mephits in:

Waves of Saffron Sky says, 'You must first defeat the one'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, ' implies great strength by displaying little.'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, 'And only lastly shall you defeat the one'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, ' that stands foremost, least afraid to fight.'

Waves of Saffron Sky says, 'You must first defeat the one'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, ' that brings with it the greatest of arms.'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, 'And only lastly shall you defeat the one'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, ' that is not distracted by unfamiliar surroundings.'

Waves of Saffron Sky says, 'You must first defeat the one'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, ' that believes in moderation in war.'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, 'And only lastly shall you defeat the one'
Waves of Saffron Sky says, ' greatest in size.'

Invis and move as a group to the middle of the 3 rooms. take stock of all 3 mobs and choose one to kill 1st.

Even though some clues may repeat themselves, they aren't always in the same position.

Using the clues above, and the new ones I got, here's a list of the clues so far.

  • of middling size that hides great strength.

  • that stands mid-most.

  • implies great strength by displaying little.

  • neither largest nor tiniest.

  • with no fear of appearing weak nor need to appear strong, brings with it a modest weapon.

  • that believes in moderation in war.

  • that is perhaps weakest in strength compensated for with a sizable weapon.

  • that is the greatest of the three.

  • neither foremost nor furthest.

  • least size, for it may be the largest in power.

  • that shows great elemental power by wielding the least of weapons.

  • that is in its element.

  • that stands foremost, least afraid to fight.

  • that brings with it the greatest of arms.

  • that is not distracted by unfamiliar surroundings.

  • greatest in size
