This task starts with Obsidian Sundering Master at +1175, -510, +17 in Esianti on the far north edge of the zone, up the ramp. She is on the find tool.


You say, 'Hail, Obsidian Sundering Master'

Obsidian Sundering Master says, 'You do seem to like the view here. Or perhaps it's my company? No, no, you are here because you want something. I do remember asking you to do a task for me to learn about entry to [Mearatas]. Did you [forget] the name I gave you earlier?'

You say, 'forget'

You have been assigned the task 'Earthen Dirge'.

Obsidian Sundering Master sighs, 'Of course. You should seek Dirge in the Catacomb. He has a way in, all you need to do is convince him to let you use it.




1. Convince Dirge in the Catacomb to let you use his portal. 0/1 Esianti: Palace of the Winds

Task Window: You have been given a name of someone that might have access to Mearatas, Dirge in the Catacombs. You need to find him and convince him to give you access to the duende castle.

You will probably have to carefully, manipulate Dirge in the Catacombs. Obsidian Sundering Master suggested that you use your relative fame among the djinn and the fact that you know Dirge in the Catacombs has set up a portal that he certainly should not have to your best advantage. Maybe threaten to tell other that you know about his secret entrance to Mearatas.

You say, 'Hail, Dirge in the Catacomb'

Dirge in the Catacomb looks over his nose down upon you. After a pause and with a sneer in his voice, 'A mortal, of course. We are infested with them. What must I do to get you to leave Esianti and never return? Not that I would trust you to leave no matter what I were to give you.'

You say, 'I heard something about a portal?'

Dirge in the Catacomb says, 'Should I find a way to get you into Mearatas and you were to be discovered, your presence would be a danger to me. However, should you find yourself in that place and discover the head of a duende called Funereal Dust Warrior and return it to my agent in the city, well then I might no longer be concerned. Someone that, even through no fault of their own, were to kill a duende in the city would have more to fear than anything they could cause to happen to me.'

Say "something"

Your task 'Earthen Dirge' has been updated.

Dirge in the Catacomb says, 'Should I find a way to get you into Mearatas and you were to be discovered, your presence would be a danger to me. However, should you find yourself in that place and discover the head of a duende called Funereal Dust Warrior and return it to my agent in the city, well then I might no longer be concerned. Someone that, even through no fault of their own, were to kill a duende in the city would have more to fear than anything they could cause to happen to me.'


2. Defeat Funereal Dust Warrior and recover his head. 0/1 Mearatas: The Stone Demesne

Task Window: Your task seems simple but the djinn implied that he was asking you to do something that would put you at risk and give him leverage over you should you choose to reveal his secret.

Funereal Dust Warrior is located in the north eastern section of Mearatas on the outside ring. Attack him.

Funereal Dust Warrior says, 'You do not have a warrant to be here. I must end your poor mortal existence.'

Loot Head of Funereal Dust Warrior from its corpse.

3. Deliver 1 Head of Funereal Dust Warrior to Dirge in the Catacombs. 0/1 Esianti: Palace of the Winds

Task Window: Simply bring the head to Dirge in the Catacomb's assistant.

Give Head of Funereal Dust Warrior to Dirge in the Catacombs.

Also, this quest is solo, but everyone in the group will get credit for turning in the head, as long as they are in Esianti.

I left an alt in Mearatas, who did not get credit for the head turn-in and had to kill Funeral Dust Warrior again.

While saying the word "portal" does get a response from Dirge in the Catacomb, the only thing that actually updated Step 1 for me was to say "something" by itself, as FaydarksFirst mentioned.

After trying various other statements, I would suggest updating the guide from [Say anything here] to [Say "something"].
Updating the 1st step:

The phrase given above did not work for me. When i used i got:
[Tue Feb 05 12:10:00 2019] You say, 'I heard something about a portal?'
[Tue Feb 05 12:10:01 2019] Dirge in the Catacomb says, 'If you wish to enter Mearatas you will have to speak with the duende. There are several here in Esianti somewhere I am sure. There is always some hanging around. I have no other suggestions. I pray to Moon Serf of Harmonious Heavens that this is enough to make you go away. If I could send you to Mearatas so that you could never return I would do so.'
When i only said "something" though, the task updated:
[Tue Feb 05 12:12:15 2019] You say, 'something'
[Tue Feb 05 12:12:15 2019] Your task 'Earthen Dirge' has been updated.
[Tue Feb 05 12:12:15 2019] Dirge in the Catacomb says, 'Should I find a way to get you into Mearatas and you were to be discovered, your presence would be a danger to me. However, should you find yourself in that place and discover the head of a duende called Funereal Dust Warrior and return it to my agent in the city, well then I might no longer be concerned. Someone that, even through no fault of their own, were to kill a duende in the city would have more to fear than anything they could cause to happen to me.'
My guess would be that the mentioning of a portal triggers the wrong answer.

Upon Completion of the task "Serving another Master"

Obsidian Sundering Master says, 'I do not want a message from her.' Even as she speaks the words, she slides the note into her vest.'
Your task 'Serving Another Master' has been updated.
You have been assigned the task 'Earthen Dirge'

Obsidian Sundering Master says, 'You should speak with Dirge in the Catacomb. If your mortal mind gets confused, return to me and I will give you the name again.'

Obsidian Sundering Master was shaken by the return of White Skies. She told you of a being called Dirge in the Catacombs. Dirge in the Catacombs appears to have established a magical portal into Mearatas. Whatever he is doing with that portal is certainly not something he wants others to know about. Confronting him about the [portal] and carefully threatening him with exposure should earn you a chance to gain passage.

1. Convince Dirge in the Catacomb to let you use his portal (Esianti: Palace of the Winds)
You say, 'Hail, Dirge in the Catacomb'
Dirge in the Catacomb looks over his nose down upon you. After a pause and with a sneer in his voice, 'A mortal, of course. We are infested with them. What must I do to get you to leave Esianti and never return? Not that I would trust you to leave no matter what I were to give you.'
You say "I heard something about a portal?"
Dirge in the Catacomb says, 'Should I find a way to get you into Mearatas and you were to be discovered, your presence would be a danger to me. However, should you find yourself in that place and discover the head of a duende called Funereal Dust Warrior and return it to my agent in the city, well then I might no longer be concerned. Someone that, even through no fault of their own, were to kill a duende in the city would have more to fear than anything they could cause to happen to me.'

2. Defeat Funereal Dust Warrior and recover his head. (Mearatas: The Stone Demesne)
Funereal Dust Warrior is located in the north eastern section of Mearatas on the outside ring.
Funereal Dust Warrior says, 'You do not have a warrant to be here. I must end your poor mortal existence.'
Redeemabelle has looted a Head of Funereal Dust Warrior

3. Deliver 1 Head of Funereal Dust Warrior to Dirge in the Catacombs (Esiante: Palace of the Winds)
