Quests for Lavastorm Mountains

Activate the Mecha-Miners (Removed): This quest has been removed.

This quest starts in Lavastorm, and opened up Dragons of Norrath zones to the server upon its first completion.

Go towards the Broodlands entrance where you will find a Gnome named Xoramin Sprysproket.

You say, 'Hail, Xoramin Sprysprocket.'

Xoramin Sprysprocket says 'Prismatus! It's about time they sent me some help. Lend a hand, will you? We're at an impasse here and without additional supplies, my mecha-miners will never be completed. Fetch me the [materials], and I can get them up and running.'

You say, 'What materials?'

Xoramin Sprysprocket strokes his beard thoughtfully, 'Well, the first
thing that these mecha-miners need are replacement joints. Without oil and proper lubrication, their knees seize up or worse... snap. I'll need a whole bunch more to replace the ruined legs on my first batch of creations. Go to Ak'anon and seek out Basbustiel. Tell her I sent you and she'll give you the parts.'

Head to Ak'anon and find Basbustiel at +720, +92 on the pier at the
large green lake.


You say, 'Hail, Basbustiel'

Basbustiel says, 'You're a chatty one, aren't you? Did [Xoramin send you]?'

You say, 'Xoramin sent me.'

Basbustiel says 'He did, did he? Well if you're the courier, then here's the replacement parts he requested. Tell him that I'm not going to send him anything else unless I get a look at his machine blueprints. I want to see exactly what he's up to.'

You receive Sack of Oiled Joints. It fits in a container, so no worries about having an open slot. Return to Lavastorm Mountains and hand this back into Xoramin.

Xoramin Sprysprocket says 'I hope Basbustiel didn't give you any trouble, Prismatus. Wait a moment. She said what?! That uncreative know-it-all hack thinks she's got me cornered, but little does she know the the fine details are mostly up here...' He taps at his forehead, winking. 'Here - take her these half-finished schematics. She probably won't even know the difference. Now leave me be. I need some peace and quiet to fix my Mecha-Miners.'

Head to Ak'anon again to give Basbustiel the Half-Finished Clockwork
Blueprints you receive.


Basbustiel scans the blueprints, 'Very good, _____. This is impressive design work. I can see where he's going with it, but his creations won't operate properly without a few modifications. He needs a fuel source with more kick called an Unstable Concoction, a Class-XIII Motivator, a Portable Fuel Burner, and a Polished Glass Lens [These four items are linked for you]. I'll donate the burner. Regarding the fuel source, I think you should ask Gamenn Everhot in Everhot Forge of Kaladim for help. As for the rest, you might check near the mechanical windmills in the Plane of Tranquility or Steamfont for spare parts. Ask the locals, or crack open a few clockworks. You know, I'm afraid of what would happen to Xoramin if I wasn't here to look out for him. That coghead really is helpless sometimes.'

She hands you a Portable Fuel Burner. Time to head to Kaladim.

Gamenn Everhot can be found in North Kaladim by the pier over the water at Everhot Forge, location +366, -112.

You say, 'Hail, Gamenn Everhot'

Gamenn Everhot says 'Aye, somethin' I can do for ye?'

You say, 'I need some fuel'

Gamenn Everhot belts out a rumbling chortle, 'Oh, ye be wantin' some fuel with kick to 'er? Poke around in our mines until ye find some coal. Then I'll be needin' a pile of sulfur from the mines of Solusek's Eye. Lastly, short fuse. Bring me those three ingredients, and I'll show ye somethin' that'll be all the kick ye'll ever need.'

Kaladim Coal can be found as a ground spawn in the mines in the same
zone at 783, 213, -64.


Solusek Sulfur can be found as a ground spawn in Solusek's Eye at -545, -650.

Short Fuse drops from various low-level mobs around Lavastorm Mountains (confirmed off a magma basilisk warrior).

Bring the three pieces back to Gamenn in North Kaladim and hand them all in.

Gamenn Everhot grinds the components together and carefully attaches the fuse to the resulting putty. It looks dangerous.

You receive an Unstable Concoction, the second of the four pieces.

Run over to Plane of Tranquility, and go down to the windmill where
you'd zone into Plane of Innovation. Upon entering the windmill, look
around the crates to your left for 'a weary scavenger'.


You say, 'Hail, a weary scavenger'

a weary scavenger is disheveled and badly bruised. She winces as you
approach, 'So, did you come to ask about this Class-XIII Motivator (The item is linked for you)? I uncovered it, buried in some garbage deep in the halls of Innovation. I knew it must be valuable, but my excitement I made too much noise. Me elation at finding it only served to attract the unwelcome attention of several bucketheads, after which I ran and barely escaped with my life. So, what say you? [Yes]? It's all anyone else is interested about, and I'd wager you're no different.'

You say, 'Yes'

a weary scavenger says 'Well, after risking my life to acquire it I can't just give such a thing away now, can I? How about you bring me a Raw Diamond, Star Ruby, Fire Opal, and oh... something to quench my parching thirst. How about a Fuzzlecutter Formula 5000? (Again, these items are linked).

Head wherever you need to go and grab these items. After collecting
the items, head back, and hand in the items to the scavenger.


a weary scavenger uncorks and quaffs Fuzzlecutter's Formula, swallowing the liquid noisily. In a few brief gulps, the vial is empty. She smashes the bottle on the tiles and unceremoniously wipes her chin with one sleeve. 'Now that was refreshing! While I adore the gems, the most beautiful trinkets in the world hold no value if you're too thirsty to enjoy them. Here's your Motivator, _____. You earned it.'

You receive a Class-XIII Motivator. Three down, one to go.

The last part requires you go to Steamfont Mountains and search around the windmills for a spawn named 'a defective automaton'. It is light blue to a 66, doubles for 200, is immune to changes in run speed, has a TON of hit points, and flurries about once a minute. Once it's dead, it drops two of the Polished Glass Lens that you need, so bring a friend that needs it too.

Take the four parts back to Xoramin in Lavastorm and hand them in for
your reward.


Xoramin Sprysprocket says 'Your assistance is much appreciated, _____. You'll have to excuse me for being so curt, but I must get back to work. These Mecha-Miners are nearly perfected, if I can just stop them from exploding. Oh, here is a little something for your time. If you aren't completely satisfied, I may have something else that would interest you. Simply return that reward and I'll swap it.

You receive a Gnomish Miner's Cap.

Hand it back in to receive Chunk of Warm Brimstone. Hand that back in
to receive Uncut Lavastorm Diamond. Hand the diamond back in to get
the Miner's Cap again.
Reward: Gnomish Miner's Cap
Reward: Chunk of Warm Brimstone
Reward: Uncut Lavastorm Diamond

Bibol's Errands (Normal): This quest may be doable at an earlier level, however the rewards have required levels of 40.

Zone into Lavastorm Mountains and find Head Miner Bibol at location +2480, -710 near the Lavaspinners Lair.

Head Miner Bibol says 'You there, why aren't you digging? I see no tools in your hands. we have a deadline to make, get over here!'

You say, 'Hail, Head Miner Bibol'

Head Miner Bibol says 'Hail yourself. We have a lot of digging to do around here. Time is money, you know. If only our [depth gauge] hadn't disappeared. It's those pesky goblins I reckon.'

You say, 'What depth gauge?'

Head Miner Bibol says 'You don't even know what a depth device is? What kind of miner are you? It is a brilliant little piece of technology that keeps track of our progress with this hole over here. It also lets me know when people have been slacking, if you know what I mean. We simply must get a [replacement] from Ak'Anon, but I can't spare any workers to go retrieve one.'

You say, 'What replacement?'

Head Miner Bibol says 'Well, the king's clerk has already been made aware of the situation. We just need someone to go [pick it up].'

You say, 'I will pick it up'

Head Miner Bibol says 'You don't even know what it is! It is better than losing a good miner for such a trivial task, now isn't it. Humm. Okay then, get to Ak'Anon and give this to Palthen. Make quicklike, you hear?'

Receive Depth Gauge Order.

Head to Ak'Anon and find Royal Clerk Palthen in King Ak'Anon's throne room (location +810, -165). He does not respond to hails.

Give him Depth Gauge Order.

Royal Clerk Palthen stutters and looks embarrassed. "That sure was quick. I only got word that theirs disappeared yesterday! Oh dear, if we don't get that hole dug soon I can't even . . Now don't you worry about that. The only one that we have left in stock is busted I'm afraid. I was going to have [Mip] look at it this afternoon. Can you run it over to him? Please!?'
You gain experience!!

Receive Malfuctioning Depth Gauge.

You say, 'Who is Mip?'

Royal Clerk Palthen says 'Mip Sprocket. He's just one of our mechanics but this device in particular was his creation. I am afraid no one else has been able to determine what is wrong with it. Please get it to him quickly so Bibol can oversee this project. It is very important that we get this wrapped up before that [horrible man] returns.'

You say, 'What horrible man?'

Royal Clerk Palthen says 'I shouldn't have said anything. No, no I sure shouldn't. Please don't say anything. Just get that to Mip!'

Head to the Steamfront Mountains and find Mip Sprocket inside one of the Windmills (location +135, -900). Give Mip the Malfuctioning Depth Gauge.

Mip Sprocket says 'Ah, here you are. Let me look at that blasted thing.' Mip tinkers around with the malfunctioning device for a minute. 'Ah, that should do the trick. I had a loose spring on the combobulator. Good as new! I'd take this right over to Bibol if I were you.'
You gain experience!!

Receive Gnomish Depth Gauge.

Return to the Lavastorm Mountains and give Head Miner Bibol the Gnomish Depth Gauge.

Head Miner Bibol flips a switch and the device starts to hum and whir merrily. 'Not bad at all, Mip sure knows his stuff. Here, take this and get going then. Oh, actually . . Do you have [time] to make another run back to Ak'Anon?'
You gain experience!!

Receive Sooty Miner's Cloak.

You say, 'I have time'

Head Miner Bibol says 'Great. Sorry I was so abrupt earlier. This has been the most ill-begotten project ever. I have the [status report] ready.'

You say, 'What status report?'

Head Miner Bibol says 'It is a bit strange. For some reason Clerk Palthen is requiring daily reports. It is a huge waste of time in my opinion, we do much better judging our progress weekly, but the orders come directly from the king. Palthen's been even jumpier than usual lately, and let me tell you he is a bit spacey to begin with. Can you [deliver] the report?'

You say, 'I will deliver the report'

Head Miner Bibol says 'Here it is then, get going.'

Receive Status Report.

Head back to Ak'Anon and give Royal Clerk Palthen the Status Report.

Royal Clerk Palthen says 'Ah yes, the status report! Oh gee, I almost forgot. That would have been very bad, very bad indeed! Here is your receipt.'
You gain experience!!

Receive Status Receipt.

Return to Lavastorm Mountains and give Head Miner Bibol the Status Receipt.

Head Miner Bibol scans the receipt quickly. 'All seems to be in order. Take this for your trouble. Now grab a pick and get digging!'

You gain experience!!

Receive Lucky Miner's Gorget as well as the cloak back. Reward: Lucky Miner's Gorget
Reward: Sooty Miner's Cloak

Burning Bones (Normal): Solinar may be found at +420, +715.

You say, 'Hail, Solinar'

Solinar says 'Many brave adventurers travel to the Lavastorm Mountains. I have been here for what seems to be ages myself. I'm starting to get worried about the status of my [supplies].'

You say, 'What supplies?'

Solinar says 'When I first started out on this adventure I packed enough supplies to last me a few months and now they are getting low. Say, would you be willing to gather some [items] for me?'

You say, 'What items?'

Solinar says 'It looks like I'm running low on [bone chips], [lavaspinner legs], and [cinder goblin skin]. Which of those supplies are you interested in gathering for me?'

Sirrikis grumbles seeing that you are still alive. 'Don't look at me as though I misjudged you, blundering fool! As you seem to be so persistent, I do have a job for you to do, if you manage to not foul that up. It would seem we need some simmering blood from the basilisks in Tirranun's Delve. Bring us five of those as well. Don't even think to ask us what it's for. You're too ignorant to understand. Now remove yourself from my sight and loot 5 Simmering Basilisk Blood.

Go investigate the volcano from the entrance within the Broodlands. I understand there is a rather potent poison to be found on those eight-legged lava creatures. We could use five of them.

You have been assigned the task 'Have Note Will Travel'.

Hm. I'm surprised to see you here. I won't say I'm pleased, but perhaps you may prove useful as I see you have survived other simple tasks thus far. Some believe the goblins in Tirranum's Delve plan to take up arms against us. You must go thwart their efforts. Should you fail, don't dare show your face here again.



Touch the cave entrance to Tirranum's Delve 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Once in the Broodlands, your compass will guide your direction.

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Tirranun's Delve.



Look for information on the source of the uprising 0/1 (Tirranum's Delve)

Kill goblins (many of them), watching for emotes. After about 20 kills, you'll occasionally see this emote upon death:

The goblin falls before being able to sound the alarm.

Keep killing goblins until you see this:

As the Delvian falls to the ground you can hear a siren going off. Your presence has been made known. Quickly find the Goblin Task Master for the information you seek.

Now, find and kill the Goblin Task Master, located at the northern entrance to the temple. It hits for a max ~1,100; has ~170,000 hitpoints; summons; is immune to stun/mez; and procs "Goblin Headbutt" (3-second stun).

Goblin Task Master has been slain by _____!
Your faction standing with Minions of Tirranun got worse.
Your faction standing with Tirranun got worse.

Loot one Letter from Tirranun 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)

Loot this from the task master's corpse.



Defeat all the goblin guards on your way to the entrance 0/9 (Tirranum's Delve)

Quickly make your way back to the entrance before you are caught 0/1 (Tirranum's Delve)

Kill 9x "a Delve guard" on your way out (you can't really miss them). They spawn in groups of three, but are stunnable and mezzable.

Upon reaching the entrance, the task completes and you see:

The goblins were no match for you, but Dark Reign likely has more dangerous tasks in mind for you.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Level 67+
- Minimum "amiable" faction with Dark Reign

You say, 'Hail, Officer Sirrikis Ryktor'

Officer Sirrikis Ryktor says 'Perhaps you will find a path to the higher ranks of the Dark Reign -- a place I'm sure I shall find myself someday... someday.'

You have been assigned the task 'Army of Stone'.

I have been wondering about the statues that guard the Stillmoon Temple and if there is something to the essence that brings them to life that may be of use to us. I've received the commander's permission to investigate and I want you to assist. What we must learn is that if there is a creature that sustains them with geomancy or if they manage to stand on their own. If that is the case then we must dissect that magic and perhaps we may be able to use it to create grand guardians and warriors in our own army -- disposable minions, like yourself. Find what animates them and bring me evidence. Go loot 5 Animated Guardian Essence.



Loot 5 Animated Guardian Essence 0/5 (Stillmoon Temple)

Kill "a clay sentinel" mobs in Stillmoon Temple until you've collected five of these. Upon looting the fifth item, you see:

You have completed the task for the Dark Reign!

You have been assigned the task 'Blood from Sand'.

You already have some experience dealing with goblins, but there seems to be endless hordes of them. Rumor tells us that the goblins in Stillmoon Temple are different than those in Tirranun's Delve. Some say they are earthen somehow. We will need to investigate the rumors and study these creatures to see if perhaps they can be exploited. By any means necessary, preferably the most brutal, go loot 7 Impure Goblin Blood.



Loot 7 Impure Goblin Blood 0/7 (Stillmoon Temple)

These are an uncommon drop from the following goblin mobs in the non-instanced Stillmoon Temple:

a Stillmoon dirt tender
a Stillmoon gravel warden
a Stillmoon laborer
a Stillmoon novice
a Stillmoon witchdoctor

Upon looting the fifth item, the task completes and you see:

You have completed the task for the Dark Reign!

You have been assigned the task 'Reap the Kirin Mind'.

Those kirins in The Ascent that leads up the mountain into the clouds are truly abhorrent, but may serve a purpose to us. We believe they are highly intelligent if we understand our lore correctly. Should we be able to steal their knowledge, we may be able to use it against the dragons, or better, the light races of Norrath. We shall need a few samples to work on so loot 3 Pristine Kirin Brain.

These scrolls, when looted, transform into different items (useless items). Some of them trigger a detrimental effect on the looter. The scroll that updates the task triggers the same emote and transforms into "Gilded Scroll of Earth Rending". It also triggers the spawn of "Noble Kirin Scholar" at the location of the loot update.

You have been assigned the task 'Volkara's Bite'.

So, you really wish to take on the queen of the spiders in Lavaspinner's Lair? Interesting. The reason to put an end to this spider, outside of the pleasure in ending the life of a pest, is to end the continual creation of spiders. Do not underestimate this spider, called Volkara. She has a nasty bite and is able to bring spiders to her aid at will. You will need to bring your own army to defeat her, for certain. Don't look to us for help here. You're on your own. Be the first to succeed and you will certainly capture the attention of the commander.



Task Steps

If these aren't quickly killed, 3x "Magma Hatchling" spawn from them (these hit for a max ~800 and are stunnable, but not mezzable). You see this emote as the eggs spawn:

Volkara stamps its legs causing eggs to fall from the ceiling.

Volkara's corpse stumbles and falls to the ground.

- Minimum "kindly" faction with Dark Reign

Hail him to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Clues'.

Reports say that the place the dragons call "the Nest" doesn't look much like a nest. We know that adventurers have been in there and they tend to be pretty destructive, but from what we've heard they probably didn't cause the kind of damage that has been reported. Our agents have discovered a secret entrance into the ice lair. Get in there and see if you can find anything useful about what happened. You probably won't find any papers or lore, dragons live a very long time and pass their traditions down verbally. To be honest, I'm not really sure what we're looking for. Just go look and see what you can find.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.



Touch the portal to the Nest 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance is the dragon portal in the far northwestern part of the Broodlands.



Explore the Ice Lair in the nest 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

After zoning in, head toward the southwest corner of the zone (the Ice Lair), killing along the way. Mobs in this zone do not respawn; summon; typically hit for 600-1,000, and are snareable and rootable.

The above step is a location update in the westernmost room of the ice wing.

Keep killing mobs until one drops a MAGIC/LORE/NOTRADE/QUEST item. You'll have to kill almost the entire spawned ice wing before it has a chance to drop. After looting this, head back to the Lavastorm Mountains and speak with Xeib Darkskies (whoever looted the item is the one who needs to do the final hail). Known items:

- Deformed Dragon Embryo
- Scrap of Dark Cloth
- Desiccated Drake Corpse
- Dark Dragon Scale
- Shattered Draconic Symbol



Speak with Xeib Darkskies 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

You say, 'Hail, Xeib Darkskies'

Xeib Darkskies says 'So you've finally returned. Let's see what you've brought me. A scrap of cloth, that's all! Let me look at it, maybe you're not completely wasting my time. Well, it's old. I haven't seen anything like this since I did some adventuring in Kunark. This is the sort of stuff we used to pull out of old tombs, ceremonial garb and junk like that. Not worth anything at all these days. Looks like it's the color of royal robes or something. Ok, this is interesting enough, you've earned your reward. Maybe we can find an Erudite scholar of some sort to find out who owned the robe this came from.'


Rewards:
Up to 54 Ebon Crystals (number varies according to group's level)

We are seeking some truly fearsome mounts to instill fear in our enemies.

You must find me an egg to start working on immediately. Make your way into the very nest of them and bring me one, get going!

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

Explore the eastern desert hatchery and locate the eggs 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

This step updates near 1550, -150, -173 (this is the easternmost room of the northernmost wing). A named golem ("Earthtouch Guardian") stands at the entrance to the cave. It isn't an essential kill, but it hits for a max ~1,400; has ~46,000 hitpoints; and is stunnable and mezzable.

Explore the north western desert hatchery and locate the eggs 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

This step updates near 2300, 1500, -354 (in the northwesternmost room of the same wing). Another "Earthtouch Guardian" is in this area.

Loot 10 Ruined Dragon Egg 0/10 (The Accursed Nest)

The eggs are a common drop from mobs in the area.



Speak with Xeib Darkskies 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

You're kidding me, right? All this trouble and you can't find me one single dragon egg? If there aren't any living eggs, that must mean they have been destroyed with the curse. I shall seek some other dreaded beast to tame for our mounts.

Scouts return with reports of black-winged drakes that hunt our operatives in the Dragon Lands. I need a group of adventurers to journey to the Nest and clear out their lair. Slay six of these creatures and return with one of their talons with proof of your success.

Be forewarned, our scouts report that these drakes belong to corrupted brood, a clutch that hatched near the epicenter of the curse which has spread through the Nest. It is whispered that necromantic magic now corrupts their bodies, making them more volatile and malignant than ordinary drakes. This will not be an easy task.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

Five days ago I sent a group of adventurers into the Nest. Their mission was to explore the ice dragons' lair and recover a lost artifact known as the Orb of Midwinter. Only one adventurer has returned, and he arrived slumped over his horse, almost dead in his saddle. We do not know what has become of the rest of the group, but based upon the survivor's fevered whispers, we believe others may have also survived. Journey into the Nest and see if you can salvage this expedition. Find any survivors and then recover the Orb of Midwinter. The missing adventurers are named Varronghast, Dorsya, Kellendro, and Gorvash.

Explore the area an find Varronghast of Norrath's Keepers 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Explore the area and find Kallendro of Norrath's Keepers 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Explore the area and find Gorvash of Norrath's Keepers 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Loot 1 Orb of Midwinter 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Deliver 1 Orb of Midwinter to Pericolo L`Morte 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

This task takes place in the south-southwest part of the Nest (the ice region of the zone). You should be able to invis yourself over to the area from the entrance. Once you are entering the ice region you will have to fight though, as there are goblin spellcasters that see invisibility.

As you fight your way through the area, you will find the corpses of the adventurers spoken of in the task window. When you get close to a corpse, the adventure task updates.

If you hail a corpse, you see:

The adventurer appears to have died some time ago. The body is curled around a message scrawled in blood that reads, 'Beware the frozen-scale.'

Locations:
- Dorsya's corpse: /loc -325, 2265, -270 (in the northernmost cavern of the ice wing)
- Varronghast's corpse: /loc -2070, 2500, -355 (in the southernmost cavern of the ice wing)
- Gorvash's corpse: -1300, 2710, -270 (in the dead-end north of the southernmost cavern of the ice wing)
- Kallendro Derro`mare (still alive) and his pet: /loc -630, 2900, -271 (outside the passage leading into the westernmost cavern of the ice wing)

If you hail Kallendro Derro`mare, he casts a "Fireskin" buff on you:

The adventurer shivers violently as he speaks. 'T-t-t-hank the gods you've arrived! I...I...I've been hiding here for days... only turned visible when I heard you approach. You must be careful, _____! The ice drake Shargone lairs here... The creature spends most of its time hibernating within the frozen walls...but-t-t-t it will awaken if enough of its children are slain. That's hot my comrades and I were separated--Shargone tore through the ice right in our midst! You must defeat the creature and take the Orb of Midwinter. Do this or my comrades' deaths will be in vain. I'm too weak to help you fight, but here...This spell should help you. Good luck, _____.'

You must kill a minimum number of mobs in the zone before Shargone appears. You'll see this emote (in red) when it happens:

A deafening roar shakes the frost from the walls as Shargone the Ice Drake awakens from hibernation.

Upon entering Shargone's lair (the far west room in the ice section of the map), you will find several drakes, a couple earth guardians at the entrance, as well as a Fallen Hatchling and Shargone (who is surrounded by three goblins in the far end). Pulling them is relatively easy. The hatchling has a very low aggro range, and is easily avoided until later. Pull the drakes first, then the goblins. When everything else is killed, kill the hatchling, and then Shargone.

Shargone, the Ice Drake is just another drake like the others in the zone, and doesn't hit any harder or has any special attacks to be aware of. Once Shargone is dead, loot the Orb of Midwinter from its corpse, and turn it in to Pericolo L`Morte:

You've returned! And I see you were able to succeed where the previous weaklings have failed. The Orb of Midwinter is in our grasp at last! Excellent work. I'll see to it that you are well rewarded for this.

These dragons are dangerous foes, of that there is no doubt. We cannot let them sway our stance. We need weapons and armor that will allow us to be victorious in our battles against these creatures. We can craft what we need, you just have to get us the raw material. They say that there are dragons with scales made of metal and that their egg shells are also metallic.

You have been assigned the task 'Spider's Eye'.

Stories say that when the most ancient spider queens die their bodies turn to dust because of their age. That dust blows away, leaving two stones behind. Some tales say that the brain and heart become the stones; others say it is the soul and the mind. They say that these stones have incredible magic powers when placed together to form what is called the Spider's Eye. Some say that the combined stone will grant eternal life to the one that ingests it if they survive the pain of it. Others say that it turns the imbiber into a powerful half spider creature. One tale describes the planted stone growing into a magical tree; another says it's a nest of spiders that serve their new master. If even one of these stories is true, this Spider's Eye is a powerful item that will add to our own power. Bring these stones to me, undamaged and separated.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Pericolo L`Morte (click for map image) in the Dark Reign camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum Level 63
- Minimum "amiable" faction with Dark Reign

Hail him to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Web of Lies'.

We have learned that some people are attempting to gain an alliance with the goblins that live in the Nest. It seems that they are unhappy with their draconic masters attempt to use them as fodder against our assaults. The faction of fools that is trying to sway them to turn on their masters is telling them that the assaults is entirely our doing and that the Norrathians invading their lands have been urged to do so by us alone! So far the goblins have only allowed one emissary into their lair unharmed, some halfling woman. I guess she's too small to scare them or she smells like pies or something. Regardless of the reason, I need you to go in their and kill her. Them tell these goblins about the deception played on them by these fools. You just have to be convincing enough that the goblins don't kill you before you can get out. We all know that both sides are exploiting the opportunity for new loot and power, but as least we're honest about it.







Touch the portal to The Nest 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance is the dragon portal in the southeastern quadrant of the Broodlands.



Find the Halfling 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

This updates around location -2975, 550, -325 (second room from the southernmost room on the map). Here, you'll find the Halfling (Nera Goodlocks), a goblin called "Keentooth, Tribal Elder", and 6x "Flameguard".

Nera leans forward and speaks to the ancient goblin in a voice too quiet for you to understand her words.

Keentooth shouts, 'Halt! You have invaded our lands and killed our people. This one here claims that this conflict is a misunderstanding and that peace is possible between your people and the great dragons of this land. I do not believe what she has to say. I do not believe that your people will be able to come forward in peace, nor do I believe that the rage you have caused our masters will ever be soothed. Prove to me that you can come forward in peace. Put away your weapons and all of you come forward with your hands empty and stand between my guards or leave. Those are your choices if you wish to live.'

Keentooth, Tribal Elder says 'I knew you could not be trusted! Kill the invaders!'

Nera Goodlocks says 'Bloody fools! I will not have you ruin our chance at peace!'



Speak to Keentooth and find out what is going on 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Keentooth is in the same room.

You say, 'Hail, Keentooth, Tribal Elder'

(He doesn't reply, but the task updates.) All mobs are aggro. All are mezzable and stunnable. All hit for a max ~1,000 and have no special abilities. They should be splittable.



Kill 1 Nera Goodlocks 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Nera Goodlocks has been slain by _____!

This completes the task.

There is more going on here than you were lead to believe. Speak to the goblin elder Keentooth and learn more before making any rash decisions.

Despite the task text above, Keentooth the Goblin is in no mood to talk. If you haven't killed him already, you can do so now.


Rewards:
41 Ebon Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Dark Reign Token" (faction turn-in item) Reward: Ebon Crystal
Reward: Dark Reign Token

Defending the Lair (Normal): This group monster mission begins with a weary traveler, who can be found at +2710, -100 (outside the entrance to Nagafen's Lair in the Lavastorm Mountains).

You say, 'Hail, a weary traveler'

a weary traveler says 'Hail, ______. It's nice to see young adventurers like yourself exploring the Lavastorm Mountains. It's definitely not like it used to be. As the seasons pass, less people travel through here and some don't even know about the [fierce battles] that took place around here in the past.'

You say, 'What fierce battles?'

a weary traveler says 'I've seen many of them my friend. One of the most memorable battles I can recall was against a fierce red dragon. We fought down to his lair and prepared for the charge. It was a valiant fight against the great Lord Nagafen. I can only [imagine] what it must have been like from his point of view.'

You have been assigned the task 'Defending the Lair'.

You have the following monster templates to choose from:
Lord Nagafen (mandatory, 1 player, 55th level warrior)
King Tranix (warrior, 1 player)
Magus Rokyl (wizard, 1 player)
Warlord Skarlon (shadowknight, 1 player)
Priest of Nagafen (cleric, as many as 3 players)


You say, 'Imagine!'

Your task 'Defending the Lair' has been updated.

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Nagafen's Lair: Defending the Lair.

The great Lord Nagafen resides in his lair, keeping safe his treasures and minions. There is rumor that a guild of ruthless and greedy individuals seek to put an end to him. They must be stopped at all costs!

Relive the famous battle 0/1 (ALL)

This step updates when you zone into the mission.

Defend your lair against the invaders! Don't let Nagafen die! 0/96 (Nagafen's Lair)

The goal is to fight off several waves of "raider" NPCs, killing 96 of them while keeping the person playing Lord Nagafen alive at all costs. If Nagafen dies, you fail the mission.

Raider NPC levels range from light blue to dark blue at 55th level, and come in 6 waves of 16 NPCs each. They can melee for around 300.

It is recommended that clerics, enchanters, and bards die first, as their heals and charms (respectively) can cause significant problems.

Once you have won, you have about a minute to split the loot before you are teleported out of the instance.

Tier 1: Gift of the Dark Reign

Upon reaching indifferent faction (and if Level 65+), you can begin progression. Speak with Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar:

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar sizes you up and snickers. 'How pathetic. What could you possibly do for me? You stand in the heart of the outpost of the might Dark Reign -- soldiers of Lanys T`Vyl. With her on our side, why would we need you? I assume you think you can [help].

You say, 'Of course I can help'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Hm? I could at the very least send you on a quest that would -- with almost certainty -- see the end of you. Very well, then. Go talk to Sirrikis. He has some menial tasks suitable for a whelp like you. We need ingredients to create burning arrows, help collecting basilisk blood, and assistance in clearing a path for our equipment in the Stillmoon Temple. When you satisfy these needs, then mayhap I will entertain your homely face again.'

You have received a character flag!

Next, hail Officer Sirrikis Ryktor to get three solo tasks:

- The Burning Poison
- Blood of the Basilisk
- Clearing the Path

After completing these tasks, speak with Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar again:

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Bah! I expected someone to report that you were deceased, _____. That not the case, obviously, perhaps I can give you a more challenging task. I have entrusted Vacax Rol`Tas with some more significant assignments. Go speak to him about the goblin's note in Tirranun's Delve and should he be satisfied with your work, perhaps I may talk again.'

You have received a character flag!

Now, speak with Officer Vacax Rol`Tas for a mission:

- Have Note Will Travel

With that mission completed, return to the Dark Reign camp, and speak with Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar again:

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'If it will entice you to keep risking your lowly life for us, I have a rather rare reward for you -- a gift of magic from Lanys T`Vyl, the Child of Hate. It just might improve the more you help us. Do know that if you EVER turn your back on the Dark Reign and favor the Keepers, you will lose this gift in an instant.'

You have received a character flag!
You have gained the ability "Gift of the Dark Reign" at a cost of 0 ability points.

The new ability "Gift of the Dark Reign" gives a maximum stats increase of 10 per stat.



Tier 2: Tenacity of the Dark Reign

You must have amiable faction standing or better to request Tier 2 tasks. You can raise faction by doing the miscellaneous missions offered by the NPCs in the camp (each mission results in a Token which can be turned in for +20 faction). First, speak with Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar again for a flag (this checks you for amiable+ faction):

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

If below amiable, you see:

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'What in the...? While a measure of arrogance can be tolerated, your stupidity cannot. You will go no further with me until you do more work for the Dark Reign. Pay your dues, fool!'

If amiable or higher, you see:

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar looks you up and down with distaste. 'You have indeed surprised us all. Not just a few eves ago your name came up while we took a meal. Oh, how we laughed. But, as you are here, perhaps you have earned some insight into the great army of the Dark Reign. Our purpose -- nay, our destiny -- is to carry on the [work] of our most-feared and revered leader, Lanys T`Vyl.

You say, 'What work?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'We shall be victorious in robbing the lands of those ignorant and frail races of light and good. Should you stay the path with us, perhaps you will be on the favored side of darkness as we rule Norrath! In order to even be considered for such an honor, you must continue to provide for us. I believe Sirrikis is ready to trust you with [endeavors] that are somewhat more sensitive. And you will notice that I have told Lereh Dirr that if you are foolish enough, you may attempt to slay the great lava dragon known as [Tirranun].'

You have received a character flag!

(This flag grants you access to the non-progression raid "Fanning the Flames".)

You say, 'What endeavors?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Indeed, you must aid us with gathering muddy blood from sand goblins, creating an army of stone, and gathering kirin brains. See Officer Sirrikis for these tasks. Should you complete all of this work, which I highly doubt, I may grant you even more challenging assignments. Now, start marching. Your stench is annoying me.'

You say, 'What about Tirranun?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'I don't believe you are ready, but stranger things have happened -- not withstanding your success so far. Should you survive a meeting with this dragon of lava, we have much to learn. His death will likely grant us enough knowledge to find a way to access the other dragons that inhabit this newly discovered land. Should we learn enough about these dragons, we may be able to exploit their kind and their knowledge for our army and serve Lanys' will in Norrath -- to see the end of the good.'

Now, speak with Officer Sirrikus Ryktor and receive three tasks:

- Army of Stone
- Blood from Sand
- Reap the Kirin Mind

Once these tasks are done, head back to the Commander and speak with him to receive a flag:

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'You continue to overcome the challenges that some of the grunts of the Dark Reign seem unable to. I suppose I shall continue to push the limits of your abilities to see at what point you end in a bloody mess. I've asked Vacax to assign you with stealing drake eggs for the Dark Reign. The potion we can make with them shall be deadly, indeed. As I don't appear to be able to get rid of you, I shall direct you to Aleeth Zyrv. The mission to investigate Emoush that he has for you is quite a bit more delicate and will require you to bring along those with skill that can be trusted. Return to me with proof when you have completed these assignments.'

You have received a character flag!

Next, speak to Officer Vacax Rol`Tas, who gives you another mission:

- Drake Eggs

With this mission complete, speak with Captain Aleeth Zyrv for your first progression raid event:

- Calling Emoush (6-24 players)

Loot the "Glowing Stone Fragment" from Emoush the Destroyer, and bring it to Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar:

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Interesting that you continue to put yourself in harms way for the Dark Reign and survive. Lanys has authorized me to improve your abilities somewhat so you can continue to risk your hide for us. Talk to me again and if the Dark Reign considers you worthy, I will have more work.'

You have received a character flag!

You get 1-2 AAs and the Special AA "Tenacity of the Dark Reign" (adds 250 hp/mana/end to your base stats). You also receive your 69th level spell/tome.

Bard - Spell: Storm Blade
Beastlord - Spell: Growl of the Panther
Berserker - Tome of Destroyer's Volley
Cleric - Spell: Blessed Touch (scribes as "Ward of Retribution")
Druid - Spell: Serpent Vines

Shadowknight - Tome of Soul Shield
Shaman - Spell: Spirit of the Panther
Warrior - Tome of Cyclone Attack
Wizard - Spell: Claw of Vox



Tier 3: Embrace of the Dark Reign

In order to continue on after this step, you must have kindly faction. Hail Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar for another flag:

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar snarls as you approach. 'Still nosing around, are you? While it's somewhat appropriate you're willing to be fodder for the Dark Reign. Your desire to please is almost embarrassing -- unless you are smarter than that and have [greater motives]. I highly doubt that, however.

You have received a character flag!

(This flag grants you access to the non-progression raids "Reflections of Silver" & "Kessdona's Perch".)

You say, 'I have greater motives...'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Is that so? If your desire is to serve Lanys T`Vyl and this ascending army, then I can respect that to some degree. Unless you are simply willing to give us your body for our undead contingent, you have many [quests] before you get there. Should you succeed, then perhaps I won't want to sever your head from that neck of yours each time I see you. Once again, Sirrikis has the details for you. As promised, I have given Lereh Dirr instructions to lead you to the greater [wyrms] we have uncovered the hiding place of, though our interest in them right now isn't critical.'

You say, 'What quests?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'You must contaminate the waters of Stillmoon Temple, gather knowledge from the scrolls of the temple, and thwart the attack of the Snowfoot goblins. When you are successful, return to me and I will direct you to my officers for more challenging work.'

You say, 'What wyrms?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'The dragons of the Temple and Ascent -- Rikkukin and Kessdona -- are mates of a type of dragon we've not seen. Scales of metal have been recovered from the temple and they hold a magic that might play a vital part for us. They are dragons of great wisdom and knowledge and besting them would be a feat that few are prepared for. But as few are foolish enough to take on the task, I thought you might be. You will find that Sirrikis can open the way to these dragons for you.'

Speak to Officer Sirrikis Ryktor to be assigned three solo tasks:

- Muddy the Waters
- Snowfoot Attack
- Knowledge is Power

After completing these tasks, speaking with the Commander again:

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar sighs. 'Why must you look at me so expectantly? There is a long way to go before I would offer any respect. And if you're looking for thanks, your foolish gaze is in the wrong direction. Now, go speak to Vacax again and get details on a mission that might be very satisfying for you. I'd do it myself if I could -- you must attempt to collect a scroll of great power. Also, there is an interesting test of perseverance you must overcome in the temple. You'll need to speak to Aleeth Zyrv for particulars. And also speak to Aleeth who is pursuing Volkara in Tirranun's Delve.

You have received a character flag!

Next, speak with Officer Vacax Rol`Tas to be assigned a group mission:

- The Gilded Scroll

You'll also need to complete two progression raids from Captain Aleeth Zyrv:

- Volkara's Bite (6-42 players)
- Trial of Perseverance (6-24 players)

Loot "Goblin Warlord's Beads" from the warlord in the "Trial of Perseverance", and loot "Lava Spider Spinners" from Volkara in "Volkara's Bite". Hand in these two items to Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar:

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Such a wonder that you're forever returning here like a rat looking for scraps. Though your reek is foul, your work has earned you more power from Lanys' great magic. There will be more work for you if you've adequately proven yourself.'

You have received a character flag!

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'And so Norrath's Keepers loses to our greatness once again. You've given me and Lanys plenty to mull over and snicker about. Your service to the Dark Reign has been painful, but satisfying to me. Continue to serve and we will reward you well.'

You have received a character flag!

You get 1-2 AAs and the Special AA "Embrace of the Dark Reign" (increases buff slot limit by one).



Tier 4: Power of the Dark Reign

In order to continue on in Tier 4, you must, again, have kindly faction. Hail Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar for another flag:

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'The path through the temples and mountains is fraught with danger. We have lost many who have gone on expeditions thus far. As you seem willing -- and pestering -- it's now your turn. Go speak to Aleeth. These assignments are not for the faint of heart and you hold the reputation of the Dark Reign in your hands -- something I will not tolerate being sullied. In the temple, you will need many allies to overcome Shogurei, the Guardian of the Sands. With a smaller force, you may be able to accept the challenge issued by the goblins of Thundercrest Isle. The audacity of challenging us, the army of the Child of Hate, is beyond me, but go!'

You have received a character flag!

Now, you'll need to complete two progression raids from Captain Aleeth Zyrv:

- Guardian of the Sands (6-42 players)
- Goblin Dojo (6-24 players)

Loot "Quintessence of Sand" and "Meditation Stone" from those two raids (respectively), and give them to Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar:

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'What of it? If you expect a dark elf of my stature to kowtow to you, your mind is seething with delusions. I suppose someone may ask me to reward you should you continue to prove yourself.'

You have received a character flag!

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Once again you exceeded my expectations, but I still find your manner deplorable. There is something about you that leads me to think you believe you are better than the rest of us. I suppose we shall see, shan't we? And you will likely have your chance to [prove] it. Shogurei's essence did reveal some secrets. He was gifted with the power of wind and storm, a magic bestowed upon it by the dragon of Thundercrest Isles. Now we know the magic the dragon holds, but we must send you to set eyes upon her.'

You say, 'How should I prove it?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Lanys T`Vyl and the rest of the Dark Reign grow more powerful by the day and our work becomes ever more important to continue this glorious trend. Lereh has some difficult employment for you, most notably a confrontation with the dragon of [storms].'

You have received a character flag!

You say, 'What dragon of storms?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Yar`Lir is perhaps the most powerful dragon known to our kind. Your work thus far has indicated to us, especially through the scrolls gathered from the temple, that Yar`Lir is the dragon responsible for casting a veil of magic and storms over the Nest to protect it from view and keep it hospitable for the wyrms. We want you to [kill] her. Lereh knows the path to Yar`Lir.'

You say, 'Why should I kill her?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'You must kill her to disrupt her magic and weaken the area. Soon, we shall rule the dragons and Norrath, and this is but a step on that path. This is one dragon that you must defeat before you are allowed to learn more of our knowledge of this place and to consider you a soldier of the Dark Reign. There is more than just her to defeat as well, which I will inform you of if you defeat the dragon of storms. You must return and give me one of her fangs.'

Now, speak with General Lereh Dirr to request another progression raid:

- An End to the Storms (6-54 players)

Loot "Yar'lir's Fang" from this raid, and hand it to Commander Zaerr Ty'Dar:

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Some might show you gratitude for your achievements, but I shan't. Lanys Y`Vyl has once again allowed you a greater touch of the magic of Hate. If I deem you worthy, I may have more work for you.'

You have received a character flag!

You get 1-2 AAs + the Special AA "Power of the Dark Reign" (increases critical melee/magical attacks and heals).

If this is a server-first, completion of Tier 4 opens up The Accursed Nest (previously locked to everyone) on your server.



Tier 5: Fervor of the Dark Reign

In order to continue on in Tier 5, you must have at least high warmly faction. Speak with Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar:

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'I suppose, as much as it makes my stomach turn, I can say you've earned my respect. It is no small feat to kill a dragon, and one of Yar`Lir's caliber. Not only that, but the death of Yar`Lir has caused a significant upheaval in the Nest and we're unclear as to why. Figuring that out is now your job. There is some evil at work there and we need to know what it is... so perhaps we can work with it. Officer Vacax has a job for you -- to ambush a group of meddlers who are attempting to obtain information ahead of us. You will need to speak with Aleeth about a creature named Ju`rek and bring me evidence of your success.'

You have received a character flag!

Next, speak with Officer Vacax Rol`Tas for a group mission:

- Rival Party

You'll also need to complete another progression raid from Captain Aleeth Zyrv:

- The Curse of Ju'rek (6-24 players)

Loot "Diseased Wing Fragment" from this raid, and hand it to Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar:

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'From the first days when you were collecting ingredients for us, I would have never have expected you to come so far. While you do not rival my power, you have come as close as any -- and without so annoying me that I ran you through with my blade. The moment you killed the [dragon] of the storms, the Nest below was indeed weakened and the grim dragon of the Nest was awakened and angered.'

You say, 'What dragon?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Our rogues caught a glimpse of that dragon in the Nest and it appeared to be a dragon like Yar`Lir, but is no longer. It has been affected somehow, twisted and embroiled by shadow. You must go find it and kill it, at all costs. There is so much to learn and one last trophy to claim for Lanys T`Vyl, the child of Hate. Bring me Vishimtar's shadowy scale.'

Finally, speak with General Lereh Dirr for the last raid event:

- In the Shadows (6-54 players)

Loot "Shadowscale of Vishimtar" from this raid, and hand it in to Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar to finish off your progression:

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'It has been a long journey, _____. For the last time, the Child of Hate offers you the greatest power of Hate that a mere mortal can tolerate. You have served the Dark Reign well.'

You get 1-2 AAs and the Special AA "Fervor of the Dark Reign" (increases spell resist caps).



Finished

You say, 'Hail, Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'You have done what most could not. From what we can piece together from the scrolls, the minds of the kirins obtained for us, and the death of Yar`Lir, there has been another that has brought a remarkable [darkness] over the Nest. As much as the Dark Reign would enjoy the credit, we cannot claim this great disruption.'

You have received a character flag!

You say, 'What darkness?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'Yar`Lir was Vishimtar's mate, another dragon of storms. Together, the two of them used their magic to veil the Nest. When Yar`Lir was killed and the magic veil interrupted, an incredible and delightful event took place. A [dormant curse] in the Nest was brought to life that destroyed the eggs of the Nest and turned many of the creatures within it, including Vishimtar. He was not killed by the curse, but corrupted and made more powerful than any dragon we have ever seen!'

You say, 'What about the dormant curse?'

Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar says 'What remains a mystery is the source of the curse. Someone or something was able to get into the Nest before any of us were able to... somehow. We will not rest until we learn the origins of that curse, for the magic that created it is certainly one we ought to have on our side, wouldn't you say? For now, your work with us is complete and we have all agreed to reward you well for all you've done in the name of Lanys T`Vyl and the outpost. You may now safely and indisputably call yourself one of the Dark Reign.' Reward: Tome of Guard of Righteousness
Reward: Spell: Earthen Shackles
Reward: Tome of Cyclone Attack
Reward: Spell: Growl of the Panther
Reward: Tome of Soul Shield
Reward: Spell: Storm Blade
Reward: Spell: Ward of Retribution
Reward: Spell: Spirit of the Panther
Reward: Spell: Shadow Orb
Reward: Tome of Dragon Fang
Reward: Spell: Claw of Vox
Reward: Spell: Serpent Vines
Reward: Spell: Summon: Molten Orb
Reward: Molten Orb
Reward: Spell: Rune of Rikkukin
Reward: Tome of Assassin's Feint
Reward: Tome of Destroyer's Volley

Tier 1: Gift of the Keepers

Upon reaching indifferent faction (and if Level 65+), you can begin progression by speaking with Chieftain Relae Aderi:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi nods his head in acknowledgement and smiles. 'Welcome to the Norrath's Keepers' enclave. We are busy protecting the way of the right and honorable now. Our world is at a crossroads and we must endeavor to ensure we maintain order as much as we can. Should you wish to [help] us, do say so.'

You say, 'I wish to help you'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Those are encouraging words and we will gladly take your offer. Please see Nylaen Kel`Ther, my trusted friend. While his tasks may not seem glorious, they are necessary for us to gain a foothold against the Dark Reign, the followers of Lanys T`Vyl, the Child of Hate. They have their grim eyes set on seeing the end of us all. To begin, from the volcano, we need ingredients to create an antidote, help collecting Delvian teeth for our arrowheads, and handling goblin greed in the Stillmoon Temple. When you satisfy these needs, then we shall speak again.'

You have received a character flag!

Now talk with Private Nylaen Kel`Ther, next to Chieftain Relae Aderi to receive three different solo tasks:

Creating an Antidote
Burning Arrows
Greed of the Goblins

After completing these tasks, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi again:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Welcome back, _____. News of your good deeds is passing quickly through our ranks. I wish we could say your work is done here, but it is not. The goblins of Tirranun's Delve heard of your efforts against their kin in the Stillmoon Temple and they have vowed revenge. One in particular, Gimblax, plans to hunt you down. We know where he is now and if you move quickly, perhaps you can reach him first. Speak to Dilar Nelune and he will give you further guidance.'

You have received a character flag!

Next, speak with Keeper Dilar Nelune to receive a single-group task:

Children of Gimblax

After completing this task, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi again:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'It is time to repay you for all you have done. Firiona Vie has chosen to share a divine gift with you that will only grow stronger if you continue to help us. This magic to be instilled with you is a fitting reward, but you will fast lose it should you ever aid the Dark Reign -- in fact, it will disappear instantly!'

You have received a character flag!
You have gained the ability "Gift of the Keepers" at a cost of 0 ability points.

The new ability "Gift of the Keepers" gives a maximum stats increase of 10 per stat.



Tier 2: Valor of the Keepers

You must have amiable faction standing or better to request Tier 2 tasks. You can raise faction by doing the miscellaneous missions offered by the NPCs in the camp (each mission results in a Token which can be turned in for +20 faction). First speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi again:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

If below amiable, you see:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Your contributions certainly do shine, _____, but to further help us is a matter of trust. You must prove that you are ready for the higher levels of confidentiality by aiding us with more work.'

If amiable or higher, you see:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'I am delighted to see that you got to Gimblax before he was able to get to you. It would be a great loss to us if he were to find you and carry out his plans! You have done so well for us that we have much more for you to do if you are still willing. If you wish to help us turn the sand goblins' anger, recover the lost map, and protect our kirin contact, please speak to Nylaen Kel`Ther and he will give you more [work]. May the light of the world shine upon you, _____!'

You say, 'What work?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'This may be presumptuous and I'm not certain the kind of company you keep, but should you find the will and way, there are stories of a dragon of lava that goes by the very name of that volcano, Tirranun. We have found an entrance that would seem to lead to its lair, but none of us have found the numbers or bravery to attempt to find it. With your associations, perhaps you would have better luck, at your leisure of course. We must learn all we can about the dragons for we fear that the Dark Reign wish to gain control over them to use against us. In the meantime, we have bestowed upon you a reward for your assistance. Safe travels, _____.'

You have received a character flag!

(This flag grants you access to the non-progression raid "Fanning the Flames".)

Now, speak with Private Nylaen Kel`Ther (need to be Level 67+) to receive three solo tasks:

Turn the Tides of the Sand
Recover the Lost Map
Defend the Kirin Contact

After completing these three tasks, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi again:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Your advancement and accomplishments are many and you have our gratitude, but I must implore you to continue to help us. There are few as capable as you to accept the challenges that lie ahead. Dilar Nelune has been charged with giving you the information needed to making an offering of peace and reassurance to our kirin contact. Also, I have permitted Ekiltu Verlor to give you access to all the information you would need to bring an end to the terrible dervish, Emoush. Bring me evidence you have overcome this challenge.'

You have received a character flag!

Next, hail Keeper Dilar Nelune to receive a group mission:

Sickness of the Spirit

After that, speak with Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor for your first raid event:

Calling Emoush (6-24 players)

Loot the "Glowing Stone Fragment" from Emoush the Destroyer, and bring it to the Chieftain to complete Tier 2 progression:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Norrath's Keepers acknowledges your steadfastness and resolve in our name and Firiona herself wishes to strengthen the gift she has bestowed upon you so you may serve us with greater power.'

You have received a character flag!

You get 1-2 AAs and the Special AA "Valor of the Keepers" which adds 250 hp/mana/end to your base stats. You also receive your 69th level spell/tome:

Bard - Spell: Storm Blade
Beastlord - Spell: Growl of the Panther

Tier 3: Embrace of the Keepers

To request Tier 3 content, you must be at least mid amiable with Norrath's Keepers and be at least Level 68.

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi bows as he recognizes you. 'Your good deeds in the name of the Keepers is gaining you a great reputation and the requests for your assistance come from more and more places. I would ask you to continue with your good work and we still have several tasks you may be interested in. Your skill and prowess have earned you entrance into the more [lauded] circles of our ranks, so what we ask now is of greater importance.'

You have received a character flag!

(This flag grants you access to the non-progression raids "Reflections of Silver" & "Kessdona's Perch".)

You say, 'Lauded?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Indeed. The people who now know and respect you are some of the closest to Firiona Vie, the Chosen of Tunare, and the leader of Norrath's Keepers. If you wish to stand alongside those who support and serve the Chosen, then you must continue to prove your worth as they all did. There are many [quests] that must be undertaken. You must speak to Nylaen Kel`Ther for those. And you must meet Areha Burina. She has uncovered a path to the [wyrms] of Stillmoon Temple, though our interest in them right now isn't immediate or required.'

You say, 'What quests?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'You must protect the purity of the waters of Stillmoon Temple, secure the knowledge of the scrolls of the temple, and thwart the attack of the Snowfoot goblins. Speak to Nylaen again and he will give you more information. When you are successful, return to me and I will direct you to my officers for more challenging work.'

You say, 'What wyrms?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'There are two dragons that protect and serve in the Stillmoon Temple and Ascent -- Rikkukin and Kessdona. They are mates of a breed of dragon made of precious metals. They are believed to be the first children of Veeshan on Norrath. They are dragons of great wisdom and knowledge, but don't be fooled by their sleek beauty. Once in the past, I believe dragons of their kind had betrayed our own Firiona. We fear they intend to betray the good of Norrath too if we lend our minds and hearts to them. You will nearly need an army of your own to overcome these dragons and we have no requirement of you to that end, but they are yours to discover.'

Speak with Private Nylaen Kel`Ther to receive three solo tasks:

Protect the Waters
The Sacred Scrolls
Snowfoot Revenge

Once done those tasks, speak with the Chieftain again for a flag:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi nods. 'We are always on the defensive and must continue to keep our minds and spirits up and charging ahead. The tasks we present to you now are more daunting. Having proven yourself and gained our trust brings greater challenges to you. We ask you to learn the history of Thundercrest Isle, endure a Trial of Perseverance issued by the goblins in the Stillmoon Temple, and take on the great spider queen, Volkara. You'll need to speak to Ekiltu Verlor for particulars and then you must return to me and give me proof you have overcome these tasks. And do introduce yourself to Areha Burina.'

You have received a character flag!

Next, speak with Keeper Dilar Nelune for a group mission:

History of the Isle

You'll also need to complete two progression raids from Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor:

Trial of Perseverance (6-24 players)
Volkara's Bite (6-42 players)

Loot "Goblin Warlord's Beads" from the warlord in the "Trial of Perseverance", and loot "Lava Spider Spinners" from Volkara in "Volkara's Bite". Hand in these two items to Chieftain Relae Aderi:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'You've become a great contributor to our cause, _____. There will be gifts bestowed upon you for this!'

You have received a character flag!

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Your deeds continue to astound and impress us, even Firiona Vie has taken notice of you as we carry on about your good work. She has decided to grant you greater power once again.'

You have received a character flag!

You get 1-2 AAs and the Special AA "Embrace of the Keepers" which increases your buff slot limit.



Tier 4: Power of the Keepers

In order to continue on in Tier 4, you must, again, have kindly faction. Hail Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar for another flag:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Every day we learn more about the Nest and, sadly, the intentions of the Dark Reign toward the good folk of Norrath. These are indeed troubling times, but I have no doubt that we will prevail with Firiona at our side. Go speak to Ekiltu Verlor. With your skills and talents, we believe you may have a good chance to overcome Shogurei, the Guardian of the Sands. With a smaller force, you may be able to accept the challenge issued by the goblins of Thundercrest Isles. We must attempt to beat this trial ahead of the Dark Reign so that perhaps the goblins may favour us and ease their anger towards us. You must bring proof you have conquered both of these tasks.'

You have received a character flag!

Now, you need to complete two progression raids from Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor:

Guardian of the Sands (6-42 players)
Goblin Dojo (6-24 players)

Loot "Quintessence of Sand" and "Meditation Stone" from those two raids (respectively), and give them to Chieftain Relae Aderi:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'You are indeed rising in everyone's estimation as you continue to overcome great odds Your efforts will not go unnoticed.'

You have received a character flag!

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'You have done a great service to Norrath's Keepers. What you have learned may have given us the edge we need over the Dark Reign. They are forever sending spies and doing all they can to undermine our efforts to bring peace and harmony in Norrath. While you have risen in our estimation since we first set eyes upon you, you would like to put your [dedication] to the test before we admit you as a Keeper.'

You say, 'My dedication?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Lanys T`Vyl and her Dark Reign lackeys grow stronger each day and there is little time to waste. Areha Burina has some extremely challenging work for you, particularly a meeting with the dragon of [storms].'

You say, 'What dragon of storms?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'We expect that Yar`Lir, the storm dragon, is exceedingly powerful and unique. We have learned from you and the scrolls obtained from the temple, that Yar`Lir is the dragon responsible for casting a veil of magic and storms over the Nest to protect it from view and keep it hospitable for the wyrms. You must go to see her, but I would expect her to be none-to-pleased to see you there and you will likely need to [defend] yourself. However, we would not be the keepers of these lands if we did not at least attempt to approach her civilly.'

You say, 'Defend myself?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Should she attack you and you are forced to draw your weapons, know this -- killing her will disrupt the veil she casts here. This might be the opportunity that the Dark Reign looks for, but we will contend with that from here. There is more, we believe, as we haven't found where most of the dragons eggs are kept in the Nest. This is why we are sending you -- to learn what you can. Also, if you can, retrieve one of Yar`Lir's fangs. Areha Burina will lead you to her.'

You have received a character flag!

Now, speak with Captain Areha Burina to request another progression raid:

An End to the Storms (6-54 players)

Loot "Yar'lir's Fang" from this raid, and hand it to Chieftain Relae Aderi:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Our efforts to keep the Dark Reign at bay have been furthered by your honor and prowess, _____. And once more Firiona wishes to grant you even greater magic and strength to carry you forward.'

You get 1-2 AAs + the Special AA "Power of the Keepers" (increases chance of critical hits/spells, heals, and DoTs)



Tier 5: Sanctity of the Keepers

In order to continue on in Tier 5, you must have at least warmly faction. Speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says, 'As we feared, Yar'lir was not kind to us, but it is to be expected. This fang will be treasured and protected while our researcher study it. It is not time to dawdle though. I'm sure you're already aware that the death of Yar'Lir caused a great disturbance in the Nest. Each time the storm dragon's magic is interrupted, the Nest and resting place of the eggs of the Nest's dragons become darker and we're not sure why. In order to learn more, please talk to Dilar Nelune and Ekiltu Verlor. They have new work for you -- to investigate a curse in the Nest and to learn about a dark drake by the name of Ju'rek. You will need to bring me proof of your success.'

Next, speak with Keeper Dilar Nelune for a group mission:

Origins of the Curse

You'll also need to complete another progression raid from Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor:

The Curse of Ju'rek (6-24 players)

Loot "Diseased Wing Fragment" from this raid, and hand it to Chieftain Relae Aderi:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Gracious, that curse certainly seems to run deep. You have accomplished what very few have been able to and we'd like to reward you. As you may have already ascertained, there is a [dragon] in the Nest that we have yet to confront. That falls to you now.'

You have received a character flag!

You say, 'What dragon?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'We hear that the dragon in the Nest was Yar'Lir's mate, also a dragon of storms. But as you confronted Yar'Lir and disrupted her magic, the twisting caverns of the Nest were fully bared and a sickly darkness washed over them. It seems the curse you investigated was somehow unleashed at that moment and the dragon of the Nest was touched and darkened by it, but we don't know more than that. He is angry, though, without question. Speak to Areha Burina.'

You have received a character flag!

Now, speak with Captain Areha Burina to request a final progression raid:

In the Shadows (6-54 players)

Loot "Shadowscale of Vishimtar" from this raid, and hand it in to Chieftain Relae Aderi to finish off your progression:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Your wondrous deeds will become woven into bards' songs, _____! You are a soldier of balance and good and for that Firiona is granting the greatest divine gift that any more can bear. Use it well and continue your service of keeping evil at bay, _____.'

You get 1-2 AAs and the Special AA "Sanctity of the Keepers" (increases spell resist caps).



Finished

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Well the pieces have begun to fall into place. With all that you accomplished in bringing us artifacts and information, and the death of Yar`Lir, we have learned something disturbing. The curse that was laid in the Nest was designed to come alive when the magic of the Nest was weakened. It would seem someone knew that, one way or another, Norrathians would kill Yar`Lir and [break] the veil that protected the Nest underneath her.'

You have received a character flag!

You say, 'What about the break?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'As you know, Yar`Lir was Vishimtar's mate, another dragon of storms. It was not just Yar`Lir who held the veil of magic and storms over the Nest -- Vishimtar worked with her. When Yar`Lir was killed and the magic veil interrupted, that's when it happened. The [dormant curse] in the Nest was brought to life and it crept through the caverns, destroying eggs and creatures in its path, including Vishimtar. While he was not killed, his body and magic became corrupted and he was made more powerful.'

You say, 'What about the dormant curse?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'What plagues us now is the origin of the curse. We are not sure who is responsible, but we are devoted to finding out. You can help us no further now, but I would say you'd done enough, wouldn't you? You have certainly proved yourself and can now consider yourself one of Norrath's Keepers.'

You have been assigned the task 'Blood of the Winged'.

The blood of the drake is used by the Norrath's Keepers to create potions that ward against some magical attacks. It serves them in the dragon lands. It would help me and them if you would gather some from Lavaspinner's Lair.

You have been assigned the task 'Goblin Broth'.

It would seem that little bit of fat from goblin flesh is good for our stock that we bring to Norrath's Keepers, especially the ones from Stillmoon Temple. It would seem it provides us with some resistances to the extreme conditions here.

This is a non-progression raid task that begins with Captain Areha Burina (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Level 68+
- Minimum 6 players; maximum 54 players
- Minimum amiable faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Completion of "Creating an Antidote" (Tier 1 solo task)
- Completion of "Burning Arrows" (Tier 1 solo task)
- Completion of "Greed of the Goblins" (Tier 1 solo task)
- Completion of "Children of Gimblax" (Tier 1 group mission)
- Have hailed & said "work" to Chieftain Relae Aderi to begin Tier 2 (character flag)

NOTE: Tirranun has a banishment effect that casts players out into the lava, stripping them of aggro. If Tirranun is left idle, the event resets. Because of this, you will most likely need at least two players (or one player with a pet) on Tirranun's aggro at all times.

You say, 'Hail, Captain Areha Burina'

Captain Areha Burina bows. 'I see a good heart in you and a measure of bravery. Serve Firiona Vie and Norrath's Keepers well!'

You have been assigned the task 'Fanning the Flames'.

Tirranun has proven himself to be a deadly adversary. He shows no discretion, remorse, or reason for the wholesale slaughter for which he is responsible. Many innocents that crossed his path here in Lavastorm lie dead because of his irrational rage. Take a force into the Delve and smother his flames once and for all. The beast must not be allowed to wreak havoc on our people any longer.



Task Steps

Touch the cave entrance to Tirranun's Delve 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)

Confront Tirranun 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Kill Tirranun 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)



The Event

The entrance is a cave in the northeastern part of the Broodlands.

In the zone, every few seconds while on the path leading up to Tirranun, you'll see an emote:

The platform shudders violently, causing you to nearly lose your footing.

This coincides with a small knock-up/knock-sideways and strips levitation effects. This appears to be restricted to the section closest to the path, though levitation was stripped elsewhere.

At the end of the path is Tirranun's platform.

Tirranun says 'You will burn for your defiance. Your flesh will fuel my flames.'

Note to solo players: If he banishes you far enough away, he strips aggro and immediately resets. To get around this, you'll want at least two players (or a player and a pet) on him while the banished player makes their way back to the platform. Also, it's possible to "kill" Tirranun in the first phase, which completes the task. If this happens, the event continues on, but you'll be on a 30-minute timer after which the zone shuts down, booting everyone out.

Initially, Tirranun hits for a max ~2,600 (no rampage; no flurry; no spell effects). Every 40 seconds, he banishes someone to a random point in the lava. You need to get Tirranun to 0% health (takes ~825,000 damage), at which time he falls down on the ground, changing into "Tirranun`s ashen form" (non-aggro) and starts regenerating.

After having fallen to the ground, adds called "whorl of searing ashes" start spawning and auto-aggro. These spawn one at a time, with increasing frequency (as often as every 15 seconds). These continue to spawn throughout the rest of the encounter. Adds hit for a max ~900; have ~50,000 hitpoints; are mezzable and stunnable; and proc "Blinding Ash":

Blinding Ash: PB AE 100', Unresistable (0)
1: Blindness (1)

Once "Tiranun`s ashen form" reaches about 85% health, he stands up, changes into "Tirranun`s Blazing Body", and buffs himself with "Form of Lava":

Form of Lava: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
1: Add Defensive Proc: Lava Splash rate mod 300 (adds proc for 3,000 dmg)

Now, he hits for a max ~2,100 (no rampage; no flurry) and has ~800,000 hitpoints. Also shortly after standing back up, he changes into "Tirranun the Ancient Protector" and adds two spells to his arsenal:

Breath of Tirranun: PB AE 350', Fire (-375)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1500
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 500 per tick (60 seconds)
3: Increase Poison Counter by 50

Tirranun's Incinerating Aura: PB AE 350', Fire (-475)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 2250
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 750 per tick (60 seconds)
3: Increase Poison Counter by 99

Now, he can be killed.



Completion & Loot

Kill Tirranun to complete the event. Event lockout timer is 4 days, 20 hours.

Tirranun the Ancient Protector has been slain by _____!
Tirranun's body bleeds liquid magma, his wounds spurting jets of flame as he comes crashing down.

Tirranun's rage was no match for your valor.

Upon death, a chest spawns with loot, containing three items from this loot table:

Ashen Blade of the Slayer
Blackened Sandals
Brimstone Spaulders
Glimmering Fire Opal Band
Hands of Flame
Russet Rockscale Armguards
Scorched Green Metal Visor

This is a non-progression raid task that begins with Captain Areha Burina (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Level 68+
- Minimum 6 players; maximum 54 players
- Minimum 'high amiable' faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Completion of "Turn the Tides of Sand" (Tier 2 solo task)

- Completion of "Sickness of the Spirit" (Tier 2 group mission)
- Completion of "Calling Emoush" (Tier 2 raid)
- Have hailed Chieftain Relae Aderi to begin Tier 3 (character flag)

You say, 'Hail, Captain Areha Burina'

Captain Areha Burina bows. 'I see a good heart in you and a measure of bravery. Serve Firiona Vie and Norrath's Keepers well!'

You have been assigned the task 'Kessdona's Perch'.

Perhaps we can appeal to Kessdona to cease the unnecessary violence and bloodshed. She could be the key to stopping Dark Reign. Rumor has it that she is wise beyond all imagination. Ascend to the summit of the snow-capped peak in Stillmoon Temple and deal with her. In case she will not listen to reason, bring a force to defend yourself.



Task Steps

Touch the Cave Entrance to The Ascent 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Confront Kessdona 0/1 (The Ascent)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Kill Kessdona 0/1 (The Ascent)



The Event

Kessdona the Enlightened hits for a max ~3,400 (no rampage; no flurry); has ~875,000 hitpoints; and casts the frontal AE "Kessdona's Burning Breath" which is preceded by an emote five seconds in advance:

Kessdona rears back and fills her lungs, preparing to exhale a cone of disintegrating flame.

Kessdona's Burning Breath: Directional AE 500', Fire (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 3500

She also casts the AE "Chlorine Cloud":

Chlorine Cloud: PB AE 2000', Poison (-475)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 2250
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 850 per tick
3: Increase Poison Counter by 36

And "Eye of Kessdona" on random targets:

Eye of Kessdona: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Charm up to level 99 (5 ticks)
2: Decrease Endurance by 50 per tick
3: Decrease Mana by 50 per tick
4: Increase Attack Speed by 60%
6: Decrease Poison Counter by 99

She is buffed with a 30% spell reflect:

Sheen of Golden Scales: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
1: Increase Chance to Reflect Spell by 33%
2: Increase Poison Counter by 99

You'll also see "Recreation" being cast. This is the spell cast when her golems heal her as part of the event script:

Recreation: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
1: Increase Hitpoints by 50000

To Beat the Event

Here, you'll see Kessdona the Enlightened surrounded by 6x "inactive manashard guardian". Once Kessdona is engaged, one of these guardians will change into an "active manashard guardian". This mob (not attackable at this time) drains its health into Kessdona. When it reaches 10%, it turns into "depleted manashard guardian" and attacks. Repeat this process until all six guardians are dead.

Now, four more mobs spawn around Kessdona as her health locks: 4x "Protector of Kessdona". You must have a tracker determine which of these you need to kill (only a single Protector will appear on track - this is the one to kill):

Kessdona the Enlightened draws on strength from her protectors and regenerates. One of the four protectors must be the focus. Perhaps someone attuned to nature could isolate which?

If you kill the wrong one, Kessdona remains health-locked and you'll need to track the next spawn. "Protector of Kessdona" has ~50,000 hitpoints, so dies relatively quickly. Health lock points are 79%, 59%, 39%, and 19%.

After passing the final lock point, you can kill Kessdona.



Completion & Loot

Kessdona the Enlightened has been slain by _____!
The mountain peak becomes eerily silent as Kessdona falls. A flurry of snowflakes trickle from the sky above, quietly blanketing her dead body.

Your faction standing with Rikkukin has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Kessdona has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Stillmoon Acolytes has been adjusted by -1.

Kessdona fought valiantly against those she thought were her enemies, and paid dearly for this mistake.

After her death, a chest spawns with loot which drops three items from this loot table:

Aegis of the Amber Moon
Entrancing Silk Veil
Fang of Kessdona
Flowing Fabric of Understanding
Frosted Cuirass of Enlightenment
Golden Dragonlinked Chestguard

You say, 'Hail, Captain Areha Burina'

Captain Areha Burina bows. 'I see a good heart in you and a measure of bravery. Serve Firiona Vie and Norrath's Keepers well!'

You have been assigned the task 'Reflections of Silver'.

Our scouts have informed us that Rikkukin is in danger of being attacked by Dark Reign. I must ask you to travel to the highest peak of Stillmoon and find this dragon. He is known among his kind as 'The Defender', and while that is somewhat encouraging, the forces of Dark Reign are tenacious and resourceful and likely to exploit a weakness. If he proves to be unwilling to speak, prepare to defend yourself.

The Event

Rikkukin the Defender is the only mob you'll have to contend with here.

Rikkukin the Defender says 'Is there one among you with a guilty burden to bear? I sense the culprit, the slayer of my mate. You will all perish for this misdeed!'

He hits for a max ~3,400 and has ~900,000 hitpoints. He buffs himself with:

Breath of Rikkukin: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
8: Increase Mana by 8 per tick
10: Increase Hitpoints by 8 per tick

Sheen of Platinum Scales: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
1: Increase Chance to Reflect Spell by 33%
2: Increase Poison Counter by 99

He has a regular AE:

Crystal Chill Fog: PB AE 2000', Cold (-475)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1250
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 750 per tick

And he has emote-based AEs and abilities (10-15-second warning time):

Rikkukin pulls his right arm back, preparing to cut a swathe through his opponents with his razor sharp claws.
--- Warning for AE on right side.

Rikkukin claws at those on his right flank.
--- Seen as right-hand AE is cast. ("Clawed Swipe")

Rikkukin pulls his left arm back, preparing to cut a swathe through his opponents with his razor sharp claws.
--- Warning for AE on left side.

Rikkukin claws at those on his left flank.

Rikkukin twirls his tail, preparing to sweat away those foolish enough to take up position behind him.
--- Warning for rear AE.

Rikkukin swats at those behind him with his tail.

Rikkukin rears backs and fills his lungs, preparing to exhale a cone of ice.
--- Warning for frontal AE.

Rikkukin exhales a cone of deadly ice.
--- Seen as frontal AE is cast. ("Rikkukin's Cone of Cold")

Rikkukin twists his body so that the ambient light starts to reflect from his silvery scales.
--- 10-second warning for "Blinding Light" (turn away from him to avoid being blinded - there is no emote seen when it's cast).

Rikkukin's skin seal over with a caustic sheet of malleable ice. The protection will soon make him impervious to melee and magical attacks.
--- In a few moments, he will become temporarily immune to damage.

Rikkukin (Frozen Aura) focuses inwardly and heals his wounds through sheer force of will.
--- Seen as he becomes immune to damage.

Clawed Swipe: Directional AE 500', Cold (-500)

Nylaen Kel`Ther is glad to see you. 'In the caverns leading to the dragon's lair in Tirranun's Delve are the deadly lava goblins. We have been amassing their teeth, oddly enough, as our archers have been using them for arrowheads to drive back any advancing Dark Reign. They have proven extremely effective. Please gather more so you may aid our efforts!'

I must ask you to go within the great volcano. We need to obtain a rather potent poison from the lavaspinners there in order to create an antidote. Yes, we have learned the Dark Reign intends to poison us using the lava spiders' venom somehow. Be careful and swift. We are not sure when they may execute their plans!



Loot 5 Boiling Lavaspinner Blood 0/5 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

Most (all?) lavaspinners in the non-instanced Lavaspinner's Lair have a small chance of dropping the blood. Upon looting the fifth blood, you see:

As sad as it makes us all, it would seem the Dark Reign has made a bargain with the goblins of the Stillmoon Temple. Whatever the deal that was made, the goblins have been extremely hostile toward Norrath's Keepers. Their numbers are so great that many of our beloved kin have been slaughtered. We need to lessen the threat of the goblins to us all and I believe you are perfect for this task, so please kill 11 Stillmoon laborers.



Kill 11 Stillmoon laborers 0/11 (Stillmoon Temple)

Only "a Stillmoon laborer" counts toward this kill step. These are found anywhere where goblins can spawn. Upon killing the 11th, you see:

You have been assigned the task 'Children of Gimblax'.

Relae must have told you that Gimblax plans to extract vengeance upon you for killing the goblins in the temple. We have learned roughly where this foul goblin is and highly recommend you find your way to him before he finds you.



Touch the cave entrance to Tirranun's Delve 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The direction to the instanced entrance will be marked on your compass.



Slay Gimblax 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)

Upon zoning into Tirranun's Delve, you find yourself in the far northern part of the zone. Gimblax is in the opposite end: Alone in a small cave at the far south. Make your way across the zone. Be careful as some mobs see invis. Charge Gimblax, and kill him. He hits for a max ~1,200; flurries; procs "Goblin Headbutt" (3-second stun); and has ~87,000 hitpoints.

Gimblax says 'You will die for your treatment of my children!'

Gimblax has been slain by _____!
Gimblax's corpse looks at you in disbelief before collapsing.

As news of their leader's death spreads, the remaining goblins of the delve rapidly fall into chaos and disarray. Gimblax's threat is no more. It will likely be some time before you will need to be concerned with them again.

This completes the task.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:

Private Nylaen Kel`Ther says 'We all have the opportunity to rise to greatness with Norrath's Keepers and our honorable allies across the lands.'

You have been assigned the task 'Defend the Kirin Contact'.

We'd thought we made headway against the Dark Reign, but it would appear that the source that helped us stay a step ahead is endangered. One of our scouts was able to find a sympathetic ear with a kirin in the mountain pass known as The Ascent. The agreement was that this kirin would warn us of any of the Dark Reign's advances and plans. We were told that some kirin students learned of the arrangement and have been attempting to kill our ally. As beautiful as the creatures are, some are dark and deadly in their intentions. We believe if we protect our source, the other kirin may decide to abandon their anger for our ally.



Kill 9 kirins 0/9 (The Ascent)

Any kirin in the zone counts towards this step. There may be a few spawns in the bottom half of the zone, but they are primarily found in the top half, meaning you need to invis or fight past everything else on the way up.

Upon killing the last kirin, you see:

Private Nylaen Kel`Ther says 'We all have the opportunity to rise to greatness with Norrath's Keepers and our honorable allies across the lands.'

You have been assigned the task 'Recover the Lost Map'.

As much as most of us respect and revere all life, we have come up against a problem that does tax our beliefs and we need assistance. The pumas of the temple are not to blame for their anger toward us. Norrathians are to blame for disturbing the sacred lands of the dragons and stirring hatred of us. We must accept this error and deal with the consequences. The pumas have killed one of our cartographers in Stillmoon Temple who was sent to create maps to guide you in tasks there. Sadly, those maps have not been found and may be used against the sacred creatures of the temple, as well as the Keepers.



Loot 8 Shredded Map Piece 0/8 (The Ascent)

Head to the Ascent, and kill pumas and leopards in the zone until you've looted 8x "Shredded Map Piece" (uncommon drop -- about 1-in-3).

The goblins of the Stillmoon Temple are still battling with us, but we believe we may have learned a way to turn the tides of their anger. It is not a pleasant task and may seem counterproductive at first, but do heed my words. Their blood seems to be made partly of earth and with that blood, we can create an enchanted potion and perhaps make them see the error of their ways. Go loot 7 Sandy Goblin Blood so we can once and for all end the danger to the Keepers.



Loot 7 Sandy Goblin Blood 0/7 (Stillmoon Temple)

The Sandy Goblin Blood is an uncommon drop from these goblins in Stillmoon Temple:

a Stillmoon dirt tender
a Stillmoon gravel warden
a Stillmoon laborer

You have been assigned the task 'Sickness of the Spirit.'

You may recall the kirin ally that the chieftain mentioned and that you protected. Well, this same kirin has shied away from us since it felt the anger of its kin. Many have tried and failed to win this kirin's heart to our side once again. Now, we ask that you make an offer of peace as you are the one that protected it. If we can secure this, we might be able to gain an upper hand against the Dark Reign. Within the courtyard of Stillmoon Temple is the keeper of the cherry blossom forest. He will summon the kirin for you if you help him in his quest to find the perfect cherry blossom. You may have luck in finding this blossom upon certain goblins tending the cherry blossom grove.

"Stillmoon courtyard gardener" is a goblin that wanders around the zone-in courtyard. It hits for a max ~750; has ~35,000 hitpoints; and is mezzable/stunnable. Kill it, and loot a "Perfect Cherry Blossom".



Deliver 1 Perfect Cherry Blossom to Stillmoon Forest Keeper 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

"Stillmoon Forest Keeper" is a drake found in the west end of the courtyard.

Stillmoon Forest Keeper says 'Ah! The perfect blossom . . . I can hardly believe my eyes! For years have I searched in vain for those perfect petals only to find out that gardener was keeping it from me all this time. I humbly thank you for your offer, kind adventurers and perhaps I can return the favor for I know who it is you seek. With this in hand I can summon the hidden one for you. Now go and greet him before he hides again!'



Speak with the Kirin Grandmaster 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

The Kirin Grandmaster is a mob named "Wong Li", who is in the small garden in the far west end of the zone. It is initially non-KOS.

You say, 'Hail, Wong Li'

Wong Li says 'Congratulations for finding me adventurer. I simply could not resist meeting the one who had found the perfect Cherry Blossom. I know your side wishes to unlock the secrets that lay within these temple walls but you must earn my trust before I will part with its treasures. Lately a sickness of the spirit has infected some of my brethren. Those few of us able to resist this illness are too weak to seek the cause of this malady and thus we need you to help us in this endeavor. We think that the new goblin tending to the bath house, Nethran may have something to do with this. Find him and see if he has any clues on his person. Alas, I can not tell you exactly how to bring him out of hiding except to say that he is easily angered. Perhaps you can use this to lure him out. . .'



Loot 1 Ancient Note from Nethran 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

Kill mobs in the bath house area until "Nethran" spawns alongside 2x "goblin laborer." They will approach from opposite directions, and do NOT see invisibility. (It only takes 2-3 mob kills to spawn them.)

Nethran says 'Out! Out! OUT! You be makin' a fine mess of me baths! Get outta here before I make a nice meal o' you!'

One laborer is a cleric; the other a pure caster. They each hit for a max ~800; have ~85,000 hitpoints; and are mezzable and stunnable. Nethran hits for a max ~950 and is a wizard. Kill Nethran, and loot an Ancient Note from its corpse.

Wong Li says 'Nethran had this on him, you say? This is very dire news indeed. This note speaks of an ancient and powerful curse that long ago descended upon this temple and its inhabitants. I can not translate all of the glyphs though but perhaps if you spoke with the temple librarian we might be able to uncover more about this plague. I will send word ahead so he will be expecting you.'



Speak with Temple Librarian 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

The library is upstairs in the large east room (looks like a "+" sign on the map).

You say, 'Hail, a Stillmoon librarian'

a Stillmoon librarian says 'Yes outsider, I have been foretold of your arrival. The scroll you seek, however, was stolen from here but mere moments before you arrived. Find the thieves and you will find the scroll you need!'



Loot 1 Fables of Winged Harmony from scroll thief 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

Head downstairs and into the sand area. In the northeastern corner of the zone are two small rooms. In the southern of those two rooms you will find 1x "scroll thief" and 3x "scroll thief underling" (/loc 1100, -700). They can be split from one another, each hits for a max ~750 (some are rogues that can backstab for ~2,200) and is mezzable and stunnable. Kill one, and loot "Fables of Winged Harmony" from its corpse.



Deliver 1 Fables of Winged Harmony to Kirin Grandmaster 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

Take this back to Wong Li, and be ready for a fight.

Wong Li says 'Very good adventurer, very good indeed! You have played your part in my plan most brilliantly but now I am forced to slay you, outsider. You see, I can not risk you upsetting my plans.'

He respawns and attacks.

Wong Li says 'Your bones will litter these gardens today!'

Kill 1 Twisted Kirin Grandmaster 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

The aggressive Wong Li is Level 75 and a druid. It hits for a max ~1,100 and has ~47,000 hitpoints. Kill it to complete your task.

The Kirin cries out, 'This cannot be! I was destined to rule the temple!'

This raid task is of Planes of Power elemental difficulty and has a 2-day, 20-hour lockout timer. It begins with Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Level 68+
- Minimum "amiable" faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Minimum 6 players; maximum 24 players
- Completion of "Turn the Tides of Sand"
- Completion of "Recover the Lost Map"

You say, 'Hail, Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor'

Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor says 'Those faithful to the way of Norrath's Keepers may take on the greatest challenges and prove their worth to Firiona Vie.'

You have been assigned the task 'Calling Emoush'.

You must hurry. The Dark Reign are slowly making their way deeper into Tirranun's Delve. We have heard they seek a magic that the delve goblins possess that allows them to create a great, sentient, and dangerous dervish of stone. This dervish is a danger to anyone in the delve, but if the Dark Reign are able to capture and harness the dervish, they will most certainly use it in the army they build. You must find a way to put an end to this magic posthaste!



Touch the portal to Tirranun's Delve 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Confront Emoush the Destroyer 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Kill Emoush the Destroyer 0/1 (Tirranun's Delve)



The entrance to the instanced zone is a cave in the northeastern part of the Broodlands.

Once in the zone, make your way to the far north end (general mob population is no more difficult than the standard zone). There, you'll get a location update for the second step (which also locks the task).

You'll see a dervish named Emoush the Destroyer alongside three goblins: Mystic Shiflor, Mystic Griknok and Mystic Braggle.

Emoush the Destroyer isn't yet attackable (non-aggro). It will only be active (aggro/attackable) as long as all three goblin Mystics are in their unconscious state. To render a Mystic unconscious, DPS it to 0% at which point it collapses to the ground. Three minutes later, it wakes up again and re-aggros.

With this in mind, you'll want to 'kill' the three Mystics as close to the same time as possible so that you have a larger timeframe to DPS Emoush the Destroyer (who regenerates some even while invulnerable). Each Mystic hits for a max ~1,100; has ~90,000 hitpoints; and is immune to all crowd control methods.

Mystic Griknok says 'You no stop us! Emoush will destroy!'
Mystic Braggle says 'You no stop us! Emoush will destroy!'
Mystic Shiflor says 'You no stop us! Emoush will destroy!'

The goblin mystic falls to the ground unconscious.
Your faction standing with Minions of Tirranun has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Tirranun has been adjusted by -1.

Once all three Mystics are in their unconscious states, you see:

The cavern trembles as Emoush awakens.

It appears as though there are Snowfoot goblins in the Ascent that do not discern between the Norrathians of good and ill will. We have heard that the Snowfoot wanted to punish the creatures that killed the kirin of the mountains. It seems clear that the Dark Reign are responsible for that, or perhaps it was us when we aimed to protect our source. In any case, the do plan an attack on any mortal and our very enclave here.

Keeper Dilar Nelune says 'Should we all perform to Chieftain Aderi's expectations, the races of good and light will bring an end to the threat of evil upon Norrath.'

You have been assigned the task 'History of the Isle'.

We've uncovered documents that lead us to believe that the history of Thundercrest Isles is hidden in the walls deep within the confines of one of the islands. Within these walls are several coves where the very secrets of Yar`Lir, the storm dragon, are stored. If you're ever going to see Yar`Lir, you're going to need to read what these walls say.







Touch the portal to Thundercrest Isle 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Your compass will direct you to the instanced zone.



Look through the lower section of the Halls of History 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must go forth into the storm dragon Yar`Lir's Halls of History, within her lair atop the Thundercrest Isles, to uncover the secrets -- indeed, the very essence -- of the dragon's history.

The Halls of History are located in the building in the far northwestern part of the zone. Note that mobs in this instanced zone respawn. Once in the northwestern building, head to the lower level of the halls.



Kill the sentry guarding one of the artifacts of Yar`Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Recover the Gift of Yar`Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: There will be great strife in your attempts to find the secrets, which is why you must destroy anything in your way starting with the sentry guarding the first secret.

Kill the sentry guarding one of the artifacts of Yar`Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Recover the Strength of Yar`Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles

Task Window Says: There remain many secrets here that only you can reveal. Now, you must destroy the guardian protecting the second secret of Yar`Lir.

Kill the sentry guarding one of the artifacts of Yar`Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Recover the Fury of Yar`Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: At last, you are nearly through these great halls of knowledge. Destroy the guardian of the final secret and you will be victorious in your search.

It doesn't matter in which order you seek out and kill the above-mentioned sentries. All are in the lower level of the building (from the ramp leading down to the lower level, you'll find two in dead-ends to the right, and one in the dead-end to the left), Level 73, and each guard an artifact:

Defender of the Halls
Guardian of the Halls
Protector of the Halls

Each hits for a max ~1,800; single-target rampages; has ~53,000 hitpoints; and is stunnable, but immune to mez.

After the death of each sentry, loot the artifact of Yar`Lir (next to its spawn point). One of the three artifacts you will loot in this instance will also contain the "Holding of Yar`Lir", the container required for the final combine, so loot this too.



Mold the three artifacts of Yar`Lir into the whole secret she possesses 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must connect the three secrets of Lir together so that their full potential can be realized. Look about you for that which will connect them, for it is almost assuredly already in your possession.

Combine the "Gift of Yar`Lir" + "Strength of Yar`Lir" + "Fury of Yar'Lir" inside the "Holding of Yar`Lir". Do this cambine inside the instance. The result is the "Secret of Yar`Lir", and completes the task.

You have bested beasts of incredible power against all odds to recover long-protected artifacts of the great storm dragon, Yar`Lir. You are on a path to uncovering the mysteries of the Nest and why it was kept hidden in front of your very eyes for so long.

Norrath's Keepers Tier 3b: Trial of Perseverance (Normal):

For an overview of the Dragons of Norrath expansion, see this wiki article.
For an overview of progression, see quest entries for Norrath's Keepers and the Dark Reign.




This raid task begins with Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains. It has a 2-day, 20-hour lockout timer.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Level 69+
- Minimum 6 players; maximum 24 players
- Must be high amiable faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Completion of all Tier 2 tasks and flags
- Completion of "Protect the Waters"
- Completion of "The Sacred Scrolls"
- Completion of "Snowfoot Revenge"

You say, 'Hail, Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor'

Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor says 'Those faithful to the way of Norrath's Keepers may take on the greatest challenges and prove their worth to Firiona Vie.'

You have been assigned the task 'Trial of Perseverance'.

There are still more parchments and tomes we wish to learn about in Stillmoon Temple. Some of these documents may provide the Dark Reign with the ability to bring ruin to the world. You must use your strength, stamina, and wherewithal to uncover these scrolls and secure them before Dark Reign can get their hands on them.



Task Steps

Touch the portal to Stillmoon Temple 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Approach Osashi 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Kill the goblin warlord 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)



The Event

The entrance to the instance is a portal in the north-central part of the Broodlands (will be marked on your compass).

In the instanced zone, find Osashi close to the zone-in area and speak with him:

You say, 'Hail, Osashi'

Osashi says 'You have come at the goblins' behest? Very well. Perseverance is important to all, regardless of what you seek, be it wealth, knowledge, or power. This trial will show me just how committed you are to obtain your desires. When you being this trial, several goblins will wait near the gong and attempt to ring it after one minute. Do not let this happen and you shall prove yourself in this trial. Are you [ready] to begin?'

You say, 'We're ready!'

a Stillmoon goblin says 'Someone ring the bell! Summon help!'

Osashi immediately despawns and 4x "a Stillmoon goblin" appear around the bell next to him.

All goblins in this event must be kept aggro'd. If any goblin is left idle for any longer than 10-15 seconds, it "rings the bell". If you allow this to happen, then you get "an Ancient Stillmoon Guardian" instead of the goblin warlord. This represents a failure, and you'll have to repeat the event.

When you kill "a Stillmoon goblin", another one spawns in its place. These mobs are NOT auto-aggro, and due to line-of-sight, you'll have to keep watch to make sure none are left idle. These goblins hit for a max ~1,100 and are immune to mez and stun.

After a certain number of goblin kills, "a Stillmoon warlord" appears. This mob hits for a max ~1,600; AE rampages; and casts "Gelid Breath":

Gelid Breath: Targeted AE 20', Cold (-275) (2 minutes)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1250
2: Decrease Chance to Hit by 10% with 1H Blunt
3: Decrease Effective Casting Level by 12
4: Increase Curse Counter by 50



Completion & Loot

Kill the warlord to complete the task:

a Stillmoon warlord has been slain by _____!
a Stillmoon warlord's corpse mutters an ancient curse as you end his life.

Beyond the wildest dreams and plans of the creatures that call Stillmoon their home, you have defeated the Trial of Perseverance and bested them all!

It drops 6x "Goblin Warlord's Beads" (progression item) + 1 item from this loot table:

Bracer of the Warriors
Hoop of the Drakeborn
Icefloe Hammer
Stillmoon Silk Bracer


Task Rewards:

You say, 'Hail, Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor'

Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor says 'Those faithful to the way of Norrath's Keepers may take on the greatest challenges and prove their worth to Firiona Vie.'

You have been assigned the task 'Volkara's Bite'.

Deep in the caverns of the Lavaspinner's Lair is the queen of the spiders. Her name is Volkara and hour by hour she builds her army of lavaspinners that weave and kill by spinning webs as hot and deadly as the lava that surrounds them. She has taken to the flavor of the blood and flesh of mortals and she must be stopped. You must go there in the name of Norrath's Keepers and Firiona Vie to stop the flow of blood in her caves.



Task Steps

Touch the cave entrance to Lavaspinner's Lair 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Confront Volkara 0/1 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Kill Volkara 0/1 (Lavaspinner's Lair)



The Event

The entrance to the instanced zone is in the far southeastern part of the Broodlands.

Once inside the zone, head to the far southeastern corner of the zone, where you'll find Volkara - a rather large lavaspinner.

Volkara hits for a max ~2,000; has ~765,000 hitpoints; single-target rampages; flurries; and procs "Volkara's Bite":

Volkara clicks is mandibles at you.

Volkara's Bite: PB AE 300', Poison (-300) (5 minutes)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 2000
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 200 per tick
3: Increase Poison Counter by 25
4: Decrease Endurance by 100 per tick
5: Decrease Mana by 100 per tick

In addition, she spawns eggs ("Egg Sack") at health-based points: 80%, 60%, 40%, 20%, and 10%. These appear at the location of random players. If these aren't quickly killed, 3x "Magma Hatchling" spawn from them (these hit for a max ~800 and are stunnable, but not mezzable). You see this emote as the eggs spawn:

Volkara stamps its legs causing eggs to fall from the ceiling.



Completion & Loot

Kill Volkara to complete the task (adds do NOT despawn).

Volkara has been slain by _____!
Volkara's corpse stumbles and falls to the ground.
Your faction standing with Volkara has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Volkara's Brood has been adjusted by -1.

With Volkara dead, her plans to build an army of arachnids has been thwarted. Norrathians can rest a little easier.

She drops 9x "Lava Spider Spinners" (progression item) + 2 items from this loot table:

Ancient Feline Leggings
Ancient Scale Link Vest

Norrath's Keepers Tier 4a: Goblin Dojo (Normal):

For an overview of the Dragons of Norrath expansion, see this wiki article.
For an overview of progression, see quest entries for Norrath's Keepers and the Dark Reign.




This raid task begins with Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Minimum 6 players; maximum 24 players
- Must be kindly faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Completion of all Tier 3 tasks and flags
- This raid requires six live players present in the zone

You say, 'Hail, Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor'

Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor says 'Those faithful to the way of Norrath's Keepers may take on the greatest challenges and prove their worth to Firiona Vie.'

You have been assigned the task 'Goblin Dojo'.

It is peculiar that the goblins in Thundercrest Isles have issued a challenge to Norrathians. As much as we don't often bend to threats and arrogance, we are curious what the outcome of this challenge might be -- and it's better that we find out and be prepared for it, rather than the Dark Reign. Be on your guard. It could very well be a trap.



Task Steps

Touch the portal to Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Enter the Dojo 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Overcome the Stormreach Challenge 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)



Entry

Approach the Storm Reach Sensei, who opens the doors to the Dojo and enters.

Storm Reach Sensei says 'Welcome to the Storm Reach Dojo. I am pleased that you have taken up our humble challenge. As soon as you are ready, bring at least six of your fellows into the dojo and we shall begin. Be aware that this is a contest to the death. Do not enter the dojo unless you are prepared to pay that price.'

Six players must be inside the Dojo before this event activates. Don't enter the Dojo until you're ready.



The Event: Waves of Goblins & The First Wave

In this event, you will be fighting against waves of goblins. Six people must be present in the dojo in order to activate the event.

The numbers in the waves:

- 1st wave: five goblins
- 2nd wave: four goblins
- 3rd wave: three goblins
- 4th wave: two goblins
- 5th wave: one named

Upon zoning in, you are dropped at the portal to the dojo. Enter it, and approach Storm Reach Sensei in the middle of the opposite wall. Your would-be opponents are all spawned already, but aren't attackable yet. You'll see the following:

The Storm Reach Sensei says, 'Good, you have decided to meet the challenge. I will not bore you with unworthy tales of our training methods or our meager accomplishments, certainly your own deeds far outshine our own. We are but meager servants to the Strom Mistress, Yar`Lir, and are of little consequence. We have been asked to test you and, certainly, ourselves in a battle to the death. The residents of this place are away at tasks beyond those such as we, and for a short while we have this room to ourselves. We must finish our contest before they return, and so there is little time for pleasantries.'

The Storm Reach Sensei says, 'A winner will be declared if they are the only combatants alive in this room. Your first challenge will be to defeat the Disciples of The Five Elements. Certainly they will be easily defeated by such mighty beings, but it is within their hearts to try. Your battle will begin in one minute. Prepare yourselves.'

In a clear, ringing voice, The Disciple of Metal says, 'Please forgive my poor humor, but I am very eager to test your mettle.'

The Disciple of Earth rumbles, 'When we have defeated you, I shall see that your corpses rot in the soil as is proper.'

The Disciple of Fire shouts, 'I make no apologies. I shall burn your hearts out!'

The Disciple of Water says, 'Ah, yes. You must forgive Fire, for he cares little for pleasantries. It is part of his charm. You most certainly will be worthy opponents. I am honored to face you.'

The Disciple of Wood says, 'May our efforts here earn favor with those that watch over us all.'

The first wave attacks: Five disciples:

- Disciple of Earth: hits 240-1500, average 630, ~83,000 hitpoints
- Disciple of Fire: hits 100-700, average 350, ~57,000 hitpoints
- Disciple of Metal: hits 300-1300, average 690, ~60,000 hitpoints
- Disciple of Water: hits 100-700, average 300, ~65,000 hitpoints
- Disciple of Wood: hits 170-900, average 460, ~78,000 hitpoints

Upon the death of the fifth disciple, you see:

The Storm Reach Sensei says, 'Congratulations! You have defeated the Disciples of the Five Elements. You have proven yourself worthy to face the Four Emotions. They have mastered their emotions and from them they gain strength. Each has become a conduit for the emotions of our kind, a paradigm, if you will. Certainly you shall defeat them, for you are the champions of your people and they are slaves. We shall begin again in two minutes. Rest and consult with each other, if you have need.'



The Event: The Second Wave

Two minutes after completion of the first wave, the Masters attack:

The Master of Rage shouts, 'I hate you! I will rend you into bite-sized chunks of flesh and feed them to the puma!' Rage's face darkens with blood and flecks of spittle fly from his mouth as he pants and stares at his enemies.

The Master of Deceit smiles broadly. 'You certainly will find Rage difficult to stop. I see it boiling up inside many of you. Allow it to take over, and Rage will ruin you.'

The Master of Doubt mutters, 'I. . . You. . . ' he sighs, 'I do not know what will happen next. I see the same misgiving in some of you. Could it be that you are like me? No, that seems unlikely.'

The Master of Contentment drawls, 'Ah! I am pleased to meet you all. This is a fine challenge for us, is it not? I find this sort of exercise invigorating, though rarely do I find invigoration to be a good thing.'

The four masters attack:

- Master of Contentment: hits 190-990, average 490, ~100,000 hitpoints
- Master of Deceit: hits 310-1500, average 770, ~110,000 hitpoints
- Master of Doubt: hits 240-1020, average 500, ~101,000 hitpoints, casts "Doubt" and "Mental Discord"
- Master of Rage: hits 80-1200, average 540, ~98,000 hitpoints, rampages

Upon the death of the fourth master, you see:

The Storm Reach Sensei says, 'Well done. It is rare that an opponent is able to defeat the goblin Emotions. Your next test will be greater, I fear. You must face our three Animals. These are grandmasters of our arts and have never suffered defeat against opponents outside of these grand islands of the sky. You look weary. You shall have three minutes to prepare for the next contest.'



The Event: The Third Wave

Three minutes after the previous wave, the three Grandmasters attack:

- Grandmaster Beetle: hits 150-850, average 510, ~152,000 hitpoints, casts "Whirling Beetle Strike"
- Grandmaster Puma: hits 150-800, average 400,~140,000 hitpoints
- Grandmaster Snake: hits 120-730, average 280, ~126,000 hitpoints, casts "Venomed Mist"

Upon the death of the third grandmaster, you see:

The Storm Reach Sensei says, 'Amazing, simply amazing! Never before have our grandmasters been defeated by anyone other than your next opponents. Prepare yourself, for next you must face Silk and Steel. You have four minutes to prepare, use those minutes wisely.'



The Event: The Fourth Wave

Four minutes after the third wave, "Steel" and "Silk" attack:

In a voice more fluent and soft than any you've heard a goblin use, Silk says, 'Forgive my brother. He has a keen mind but a blunt mouth. We look forward to this test of our skills. Thank you for honoring us by accepting the challenge.'

- Steel: hits 130-830, average 350, ~221,000 hitpoints, highly resistant to weapons
- Silk: hits 30-420, average 210, ~202,000 hitpoints, flurries, casts "Corporeal Torment"



The Event: The Final Wave

Upon the death of Steel and Silk, you see:

The Storm Reach Sensei says, 'Wonderful! You have defeated all of the students of the Storm Reach Dojo! Celebrate your victory. Remember this day.'

The Storm Reach Sensei says, 'You have beaten all of my students, and have only had an advantage in numbers. Experience has taught me that such advantages usually lead to disaster caused by overconfidence or reliance on the lesser skills of others. Today you have proven that my experience is not always correct, a humbling moment.'

The Storm Reach Sensei says, 'You should return to those that sent you and tell them of your success. It will be a moment of shame for me to return to my mistress and explain the defeat of my students. I offer you my humble congratulations.'

The Storm Reach Sensei says, 'However, our challenge is not over. You were to defeat all of the members of the Storm Reach Dojo to prove your worth. You have indeed defeated all of the students of my humble dojo, but you have not defeated the master of this insignificant school. To complete the challenge, you must defeat the school's master.'

Now, Storm Reach Sensei attacks.

Storm Reach Sensei hits for a max ~3,100; has ~336,000 hitpoints; casts "Whirling Smash" and "Fist of Mastery"; and single-target rampages.



Completion & Loot

Storm Reach Sensei has been slain by _____!

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Minimum 6 players; maximum 42 players
- Must be kindly faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Completion of all Tier 3 tasks and flags

You say, 'Hail, Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor'

Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor says 'Those faithful to the way of Norrath's Keepers may take on the greatest challenges and prove their worth to Firiona Vie.'

You have been assigned the task 'Guardian of the Sands'.

There have been several sightings of a massive guardian that has risen in the sand gardens of Stillmoon Temple. This guardian has been very protective of the area and we have lost contact with several scouts that were sent to gather more information. The scouts that have survived the attacks report that the guardian is allied with the sand goblins of the region. It is simply too dangerous to continue our exploration of the temple as long as that guardian is around. We need you to remove it.



Task Steps

Touch the portal to Stillmoon Temple 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Confront the Guardian 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Kill Shogurei 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)



The Event

Warning! While in this zone, keep off the sand. Stepping on the sand causes multiple goblin spawns that aggro your party (additional to static spawns already found in the zone's base population).

Clear your way to "Shogurei, Guardian of the Sands" (far northeastern part of the zone), and engage him (he is NOT rooted in place, so can be pulled - unknown if any leash range), and kill him. This is a fairly straightforward encounter.

Shogurei, Guardian of the Sands says 'You have defiled this place with your murderous presence. As life bleeds out of you and you gasp your final breath, know that you have met your end at the hands of Shogurei, guardian of these sacred sands.'

He hits for a max ~2,300; has ~775,000 hitpoints; flurries; single-target rampages; and casts a few spells:

Denial of Flight: Targeted AE 150', Magic (-300)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 7500
2: Root

Explosion of Sand: PB AE 500', Magic (-250)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1500
2: Decrease Attack Speed by 30%
3: Decrease Movement by 30%

Hammer of Absolution: AE PC 250', Magic (-300)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 3000
2: Stun (5.00 sec)



Completion & Loot

The task completes upon his death.

Shogurei, Guardian of the Sands has been slain by _____!

Your faction standing with Kessdona has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Rikkukin has been adjusted by -1.

With the guardian out of the way, exploration of the temple can continue.

He drops 9x "Quintessence of Sand" + 2 items from this loot table:

Cape of Serenity
Fired Glass Bracelet
Necklace of Sandstorms
Polished Sunsword
Sand-Molded Leather Bracer
Wrapped Glass Shard


Task Rewards:
9x "Radiant Crystal"
1x "Norrath's Keepers Token" (faction turn-in item)

You have been assigned the task 'An End to the Storms'.

Make your way to the isles in the sky. There you will find the great tempest dragon. We want to show a hand of good faith, but do proceed with care. We are almost certain this will be a hopeless mission and you will more than likely be required to defend yourself. Should she wish to see the end of the Norrathians for invading her home, then you must do what is necessary to prevent it.



Task Steps

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Must be warmly faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Completion of all Tier 4 tasks and flags (including the raids)

You say, 'Hail, Keeper Dilar Nelune'

Keeper Dilar Nelune says 'Should we all perform to Chieftain Aderi's expectations, the races of good and light will bring an end to the threat of evil upon Norrath.'

You have been assigned the task 'Origins of the Curse'.

According to reports from our preliminary scouting expeditions, we believe that someone, or something, unleashed a curse within the Nest shortly before our soldiers first arrived. Venture into the Next and see if you can recover any clues as to the nature of this curse.







Touch the portal to The Nest in the Broodlands 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance is in the southeastern part of the Broodlands.



Explore the Fire Lair in the Nest 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Locate an NPC called "Zebeker, a necromancer`s pet". From the zone-in point, head west, and then make a left (turn south to the zone's fire wing) at the first 'intersection' in the tunnel. You'll find it there. This is a location update; you don't actually have to speak with him, but doing so will provide some information:

You say, 'Hail, Zebeker, a necromancer`s pet'

Zebeker, a necromancer`s pet says '`Yeah? What do you want? Were you sent by my [master] to give me a good savaging? C'mon then. Make it fast.''

You say, 'Who is your master?'

Zebeker, a necromancer`s pet says '`What master? Don't tell me you wandered down here on your own?. . . I'm talking about the necromancer that unleashed the curse on this place. I used to be his summoned pet, you know? I was a good pet too--always fetching things and spying on people for him--then one day he takes me on a [mission] into this crazy dragons' nest and I accidentally dropped one little potion. Like that--,' Zebeker snaps his fingers, '--my master flies into a rage and commands me to stay here for all time. I've been stuck here ever since, watching my bones grow brittle and the walls gather dust. I don't even have anything to read!''

You say, 'What mission?'

Zebeker, a necromancer`s pet says '`No, sorry. I can't tell you what that still-hearted maggot pie of a necromancer was up to. I'm his summoned pet after all and I can't betray him even though he deserves it a thousand times over. I'm bound by his magic, you see, and until I get my [bone chips] back, I'll forever be his servant, forced to obey his blasted, ill-conceived commands. By the gods, how I hate that necromancer!''

You say, 'What bone chips?'

Zebeker, a necromancer`s pet says '`The bone chips that he used to summon me. Only if I have those can I be free of his contestable control. After I dropped the potion, he crushed my bone chips into four shards and threw them into. . . into . . . Aaagh! His magical control over me is preventing me from saying, but if you can find my crushed bone fragments, I can be free again. Then I can I can tell you everything I know about this accursed nest we're both stuck in.''



Find the Fragments of Zebeker's Bone Chips 0/4 (The Accursed Nest)

From here, you have to find and kill 4x "a remnant of the curse" (Level 73 dervish mobs). These mobs are non-KOS and are not social with the other mobs in the zone. Each of them drops 1x "Fragments of Zebeker's Bone Chips". Once you have the four fragments, return to Zebeker, and turn them in.

Reports indicate the locations of the remnants are somewhat randomized. You'll want to look in any of the five 'rooms' in the south wing (this includes the two bridge rooms).

The remnants hit for a max ~1,100; have ~50,000 hitpoints; and are stunnable and mezzable. They are relatively less difficult than the general zone population.

a remnant of the curse whispers faintly, 'Deathhh findsss you.'

a remnant of the curse has been slain by _____!
a remnant of the curse's corpse withers and shrinks to the ground



Return Fragments of Zebeker's Bone Chips to Zebeker 0/4 (The Accursed Nest)

In the task window, you now see:

Metafuze says, 'I'm free! Now, as promised, I'll tell you everything I know. My master snuck in here through a secret cave entrance and unleashed this curse upon the Nest. He wanted vengeance against the dragons for their "crimes" as he often put it. I could tell that much by his maddening rants. Unfortunately, I cannot say more. My master left me shortly after completing the curse and said that if I ever repeated his name, I would be blasted from Norrath before I could pronounce the first syllable. I believe him too!



Speak to Chieftain Relae Aderi 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

Chieftain Relae Aderi (click for map image) is found in the Norrath's Keepers camp. Hail to complete.

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says, 'You say a necromancer had a hand in this? Hmmm, I expected dark magic was afoot. I must report this to Firiona and allow her to meditate upon the situation. In the meantime, you should get some rest. Norrath's Keepers may require your assistance soon.'


Rewards:

This raid task begins with Captain Areha Burina (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Minimum 6 players; maximum 54 players
- Must be warmly faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Completion of all Tier 4 tasks and flags (including the raids)
- Completion of "Origins of the Curse" (group mission)

You have been assigned the task 'In the Shadows'.

Terrible events came to pass as Yar`Lir was taken from her perch. There was a dragon that protected the Nest beneath the islands in the sky, but now that place has turned to ruin and darkness. After seeing the effects the corruption has caused the Nest, we can only guess what has happened to the dragon that inhabited it. Go now and be swift. If this dragon is a plague on our lands, it must be stopped.



Task Steps

Touch the portal to The Nest 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Confront Vishimtar the Fallen 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

TASK LOCKS HERE

Kill Vishimtar the Fallen 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)



The Event

In this raid instance, you will find a formidable foe: Vishimtar the Fallen, who comes with numerous adds and tricks. Vishimtar hits for a max ~4,500; AE rampages (mitigated to ~1,000 per hit); and casts "Vishimtar's Shadow", "Vishimtar's Aura", and "Withering Corruption" throughout the event:

Vishimtar the Fallen says 'The nest, the children... must be protected.'

Vishimtar's Shadow: PB AE 2000', Chromatic (-500)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1250
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 850 per tick
4: Decrease Movement by 5%
11: Decrease Mana by 5 per tick

Vishimtar's Aura: Self 0', Magic (0)
1: Increase Damage Shield by 15
2: Increase Spell-Damage Shield by 250

Withering Corruption: Single Target, Magic (-1000)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 100 per tick
2: Cast Upon Fade: Vishimtar's Corruption

Vishimtar's Corruption: Self 0', Magic (-1000)
1: Decrease AC by 600
2: Max HP change by (-75%)
3: Decrease Agro Multiplier by 95%

At about 75% health, 4x "incorporeal shadow" spawn. These don't hit hard at all and have relatively few hitpoints. If killed, a "lifedrain shadow" spawns in its place. The lifedrain shadows hit for a max ~2,000 and flurry, so you want to avoid killing the incorporeal shadows if you can.

3-6 minutes after Vishimtar is initially aggro'd and every 75-120 seconds thereafter, a "tainted egg" spawns at a random location. If these aren't killed within a few moments of spawning (blunt-weapons only), multiple mobs called "a corrupted drakeling" spawn from it and attack. These hit for a max ~1,200 and flurry.

At 50% health, the four "corrupted drake" mobs around the room go aggro. These are snareable and, if killed, immediately respawn.

At 25% health, Vishimtar locks health and starts casting "Creeping Doom" on random targets (45-second intervals, maximum four targets at a time). This spell must be cured before it fades (48 seconds), otherwise the inflicted player is death touched. To cure this, go to one of the "mournful spirit" dervishes that roam around the perimeter of the event area and say "shoulder my burden" to it:

You say, 'Hail, mournful spirit'

An otherworldly voice rings in your mind, 'I can sense that you have been afflicted by Vishimtar, _____. You will not survive long - soon death will take you and corrupt your body into a twisted shell of hatred. Allow me to help you. I can [shoulder your burden].'

You say, 'Shoulder my burden'

The mournful spirit draws corruption from your body and absorbs it, destroying itself in the process.
mournful spirit died.

For each cure of "Creeping Doom", Vishimtar's health unlocks 1%.

Creeping Doom: Single Target, Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease Stats by 120
2: Cast Upon Fade: Creeping Doom Trigger

If anyone dies or goes linkdead at any time in the event, "a spirit wraith" spawns in their place. These skeletons hit for a max ~1,500; have zonewide aggro; and are mezzable (note: pet deaths don't spawn adds).

Note: Throughout the event, you'll sometimes get a "cloud of concentrated chaos" spawn. You can kill these to fill up everyone's health and mana.



Completion & Loot

Kill Vishimtar to complete the task:

Vishimtar the Fallen has been slain by _____!
Vishimtar crumples. His corrupted form no longer casts shadows upon the cavern walls.
Your faction standing with Vishimtar has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Cursed Drakes has been adjusted by -1.

Vishimtar's feeble attempts to protect the Nest were no match for your prowess.

Following Vishimtar's death, all adds despawn and a chest spawns with loot. Vishimtar himself drops 9x "Shadowscale of Vishimtar" (Tier 5 progression item) + 1x "Eye of Vishimtar" (turn-in item for a mask).

Tatsujiro the Serene (click for map image) may be found at the Norrath's Keepers camp in the caves of the Lavastorm Mountains.

You say, 'Hail, Tatsujiro the Serene'

Tatsujiro the Serene says 'Greetings, _____. You look weary from so much fighting. Get some rest and let me know if you need any of your equipment replaced. I have an array of arms and armor assembled for the ranks of Norrath's Keepers. Your money's no good with me, but I am collecting [radiant crystals]... if you are able to recover any. I will also accept tokens of Norrath's Keepers so we may keep track of your unsung deeds.'

You say, 'What radiant crystals?'

Tatsujiro the Serene says 'Adventurers are returning with strange crystals found in the valley north of here. No one knows the exact properties of these minerals, or where they were originally mined, but we do know that they possess an inherent energy which amplifies as the crystal shards are amassed together. So far, our sages are baffled by the crystals' power which does not readily lend to spell casting or physical combat... Yet still, there is an undeniable energy resonating from within each shard. We must hurry to unlock this secret. Our spies report that Dark Reign has already discovered another type of [mineral].'

You say, 'What mineral?'

Tatsujiro the Serene says 'Dark Reign seeks the ebon crystal shards. They claim they can sense power within these minerals in the same manner that we can sense power emanating from the radiant crystals. Our spies even report that Dark Reign foolishly casts radiant crystals aside in their single-minded search for the ebon shards. Hmm... I wonder if the power of these minerals only resonates with certain individuals?... In any case, we must [unlock] the secret of the crystals before our enemies manage the same feat. Who knows what consequences loom ahead if we fail?'

You say, 'Unlock the secret?'

Tatsujiro the Serene says 'I've taken it upon myself to collect radiant crystal shards for alchemical and arcane analysis. If you would like help me in this effort, most of the recruiters at this camp will reward you with radiant shards for completing various missions in the dragons' valley north of here. You may even be able to track down some crystal yourself while you're there? Be careful, ______. Danger lurks ahead and the way will not be easy.'

Radiant Crystals and Norrath's Keepers Tokens are awarded for completing missions for the Norrath's Keepers. You may use Radiant Crystals to purchase items from Tatsujiro the Serene, or turn in Norrath's Keepers Tokens for faction adjustments:

Tatsujiro the Serene says 'Much appreciated, ______. We do so like to keep track of the work Norrathians do in our name.'

Your faction standing with Norrath's Keepers got better. (+20)
Your faction standing with Firiona Vie got better. (+20)
Your faction standing with Lanys T`Vyl got worse. (-20)
Your faction standing with Dark Reign got worse. (-20)



Note: As an alternative (if your faction with Tatsujiro is too low), you can hand them in to Wayfarers Mercenary Youra (click for map image) at the Wayfarers camp.

You say, 'Hail, Wayfarers Mercenary Youra'

Wayfarers Mercenary Youra says 'You might say me and my brother are adept at, uhm, convincing those we chose. Norrath's Keepers are quite fond of me in particular and have been searching for their tokens and they pay me well for them. Should you find one, give one to me and I will sing your praises to the followers of Firiona Vie.'

Your faction standing with Norrath's Keepers got better. (+20)
Your faction standing with Firiona Vie got better. (+20)
Your faction standing with Lanys T`Vyl got worse. (-20)
Your faction standing with Dark Reign got worse. (-20)
Norrath's Keepers: Animated Statue Plans (Normal):

For an overview of the Dragons of Norrath expansion, see this wiki article.
For an overview of progression, see quest entries for Norrath's Keepers and the Dark Reign.




This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Kanetheus Forestwalker (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum level 59
- Minimum "apprehensive" faction with Norrath's Keepers

Hail him to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Animated Statue Plans'.

It's said that great treasures are held safely within the hallowed halls of Stillmoon Temple, guarded by powerful statues that animate when trespassers are near. Recently, one of our agents tracked down some goblin architects that seem to have the knowledge of building a new, stronger version of these juggernauts. Having some of these statues under our control would be most beneficial to our cause. Your mission is twofold. You are to go to the temple and retrieve the creation plans. Then destroy any of the gargantuan prototype statue that has been created with the plans. We can not have any remnant of these statues falling into the hands of Dark Reign. Good luck my friends.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.







Touch the portal to Stillmoon Temple 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the north-central part of the Broodlands, near the non-instanced entrance to Stillmoon Temple).



Find the Animated Statue Plans 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

Kill 1 Stillmoon Statue Prototype 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

You'll need to kill at least 20 mobs in the zone (any mobs count). After 20 kills, "a goblin warlord" spawns in the large room in the far northeast part of the zone, just in front of a dragon statue. As you make your way through the sand area, you'll come across a non-aggro "a stone statue" (ignore this mob for now):

a goblin worker says 'More sand! We need more sand for the statue!'
a goblin worker says 'Ignore the adventurers. We must complete the statue!'
a goblin worker says 'Oops! I hope that didn't damage the statue.'

Head to the northeasternmost room and, there, find "a goblin warlord". Next to it is a non-aggro mob called "a goblin guard" (ignore this mob).

When ready for the encounter, aggro the warlord:

a goblin warlord says 'How dare you invade our temple and defile it with your presence! You will all pay! Guard! Retrieve reinforcements!'

At this time, "a goblin guard" runs to the room to the south of the warlord's room and activates "a stone statue" which charges the warlord's location.

The warlord hits for a max ~1,050; flurries; summons; is immune to root/snare; and procs "Goblin Headbutt":

Goblin Headbutt: Single Target, (-17)
1: Stun (3.00 sec)

The statue hits for a max ~900; does not summon; and can be rooted/snared. It doesn't cast anything. Both mobs have ~50,000-60,000 hitpoints.

The Animated Statue Planes plans are looted from "a goblin warlord".

You have been assigned the task 'Behind Closed Doors'.

An opportunity to weaken the forces of Yar`Lir has presented itself. It seems the great dragon feels it's best to split her forces up such that a strike at one will not cripple the remainder of her forces. We intend to use this to our advantage. You're going into her garden to find and destroy her most trusted generals, those who have served her for millennia on the front lines of the Thundercrest Isles.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

Touch the portal to Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).

Once you are in the instance, head north across the first bridge and enter the large building on the other side. The building's entrance is on its north side, so you'll have to clear or invis your way there.

Look around the rooms inside the western common room 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

From the building entrance, head down the west hallway, and enter the first room on the left. Here, you'll find "Sentinel of Yar`Lir" (/loc 350, 110, 205). It hits for a max ~1,200; has ~45,000 hitpoints; is a Cleric mob; and is stunnable and mezzable. Loot "West Common Room Door Key" from its corpse.

Look around the rooms inside the eastern common room 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

From the building entrance, head down the east hallway, and enter (again) the first room on the left. Here, you'll find another "Sentinel of Yar`Lir" (/loc 510, -235, 205). This mob drops "East Common Room Door Key".

Eradicate the sentries guarding the western door 0/2 (Thundercrest Isles)

Eradicate the sentries guarding the eastern door 0/2 (Thundercrest Isles)

The guarded doors are founded further down the two hallways. Each Sentry is of the same difficulty and abilities as the Sentinels previously (except they're pure melee).

Kill General Tro'Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Kill General Veth'Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Kill the two Generals in either hallway (order doesn't matter). They each hit for a max ~1,350 and are stunnable and mezzable.

Yar`Lir doesn't stand a chance now, especially against someone as powerful as you. Dragons cannot hope to live forever and now is their dying hour. Well done against those generals and their guards!

We just discovered that someone from Lanys T'Vyl's camp is about to procure a detailed document about the temple from one of its workers. If Lanys wants this document, it must have some value and we ought to prevent her from acquiring it. It is up to you to infiltrate the temple, find this goblin worker, and get the document. Once you have it, deliver it to our contact who will be waiting for you in the temple. She will instruct you further.

Kill 1 Stillmoon plan keeper 0/1 Stillmoon Temple

Head down the spiral staircase and to the sand area in the northeastern part of the zone. You'll find "Stillmoon plan keeper" (along with 2x "Stillmoon henchman") in the northeast room here. The henchman (mezzable/stunnable) each hit for a max ~900 and have ~45,000 hitpoints. The plan keeper hits a bit harder (flees at low health).

Loot 1 Temple Plans from Stillmoon plan keeper 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)



Deliver 1 Temple Plans to Norraths Keepers contact 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

Work your way back to the room east of the spiral staircase, and give the plans to the "Norraths Keeper contact", a female wood elf wearing plate armor.



Kill 1 Dark Reign Contact 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

Task Window Says: Great work. I'll take these plans back to the camp and we can begin to work on deciphering them immediately. Your job here is not yet complete, however. Still lurking about withing these walls is the force from Lanys' camp. As we shouldn't let Lanys know that we have plans, we need you to silence this force to cover up what you've accomplished here today.

After you turn in the plans, a "Dark Reign Contact" spawns in the room upstairs (looks like a giant plus-sign on the map) along with 2x "Dark Reign assistant". The assistants are casters (stunnable/mezzable) and hit for a max ~900. The Contact is about the same difficulty. Kill the Contact to complete the mission:

Many thanks to you. Your deeds today will help to ensure that Lanys' plans for the temple will be stopped.

Norrath's Keepers: Circle of Drakes (Normal):

For an overview of the Dragons of Norrath expansion, see this wiki article.
For an overview of progression, see quest entries for Norrath's Keepers and the Dark Reign.




This is a mini-raid task (6-24 players) begins with Gordish Frozenheart (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum Level 65
- Minimum amiable faction with Norrath's Keepers
- Three players must be present in the zone before the event will start

When you hail him, you get a quest selection window pop-up, but these are only for his eight group missions. To request either of his two mini-raids, say "see those".

Gordish Frozenheart says 'I have some more jobs available if you have seventeen friends or so, would you like to [see those] instead?'

You have been assigned the task 'Circle of Drakes'.

It seems that some drake magi are working their foul magic inside the Nest. You must stop them from forming a circle and completing their spell. From what we can tell, it will take five drakes to complete the circle. They must be killed before they can form their circle. It's possible that the survival of Norrath hangs in the balance.



Task Steps

Touch the portal to the Nest 0/1 (The Broodlands)

Eliminate the drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Eliminate the second wave of drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Eliminate the third wave of drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Eliminate the fourth wave of drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

Eliminate the fifth wave of drake magi 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)



The Event

The entrance is the dragon portal in the far northeastern part of the Broodlands.

Here, you'll need to kill five waves of Magus Drakes. The number of mobs in each wave increases as you progress through the event. The drakes will attempt to set up a circle in the center. Once a drake makes it to the center, it cannot be attacked. If five drakes make it to the center, the task fails.

The emote you'll see upon a wave spawn:

The flapping in the distance builds as the wind picks up.

The 'circle' is a nondescript area of land in the middle of the zone-in area. Mobs are called "drake magus" and can come from either the east (from across the bridge) or the west (from the tunnels leading to the rest of the zone).

For the first wave, you have to kill one mob. For the second wave, three mobs. For the third wave, three mobs. For the fourth wave, five mobs. And for the final wave, six mobs.

Each mob hits for a max ~1,100 and has ~60,000 hitpoints; "Lightning Cyclone":

Lightning Cyclone: Single Target, Magic (-17)
1: Cancel Magic (9)
2: Stun (3.00 sec)



Failure & Reset

The event fails if you let a fifth drake get to the center:

The first drake takes its place in the circle.

The second drake takes its place in the circle.

The third drake takes its place in the circle, you can feel the magic increasing around you.

The fourth drake takes its place in the circle, you can feel their spell is nearing its end.

As the final drake takes its place in the circle the ground trembles beneath your feet and energy shoots into the sky.

The task ends, and you are kicked out of the zone.



Completion & Loot

Upon completion, you see:

As the magic of the drakes fails you see an object appear at the center of their circle.

That was closer than we like to admit. We will analyze the focus, hopefully we will learn the intent of their magic. Thank you again.

A chest spawns in the central area, containing one item from this loot table:

Cape of Dragon Scales
Disc of the Dragon Kind
Necklace of Grimspirit Beads
Ore of the Nest


Rewards:
7 Radiant Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Norrath's Keepers Token" (faction turn-in item) Reward: Radiant Crystal

You have been assigned the task 'Diseased Pumas'.

The pumas of Stillmoon Temple are said to be revered and blessed protectors. Unfortunately with the recent turmoil, some of the pumas have become infected with a mysterious virus and have passed it along to several of our members that have grown sick while traveling through the Temple. We ask you to please venture to the Temple and obtain four samples of infected puma blood so that we may perhaps find a cure for the infection. Once you find the blood samples, return them to me.

Loot 4 Vial of Infected Puma Blood from infected pumas 0/4 (Stillmoon Temple)

4x "an infected puma" are found in this instance of Stillmoon Temple. They are all found in the area of the zone-in point and in the area west of it. Two are in the rooms connected to the zone-in area; another under the gazebo in the westernmost point of the zone; another in the southeast room connected to the gazebo area.

The pumas hit for a max ~900; are immune to all crowd control effects; and summon when damaged. The zone respawns, so you don't have to hunt down all four if you don't want. Respawns credit the task too.

Note: The iron warders don't count towards the 20 kill requirement.

Have one person loot the puma blood and turn them in to Kanetheus Forestwalker to complete.

Explore the eastern desert hatchery and locate the eggs 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

This step updates near 1550, -150, -173 (this is the easternmost room of the northernmost wing). A named golem ("Earthtouch Guardian") stands at the entrance to the cave. It isn't an essential kill, but it hits for a max ~1,400; has ~46,000 hitpoints; and is stunnable and mezzable.

Explore the north western desert hatchery and locate the eggs 0/1 (The Accursed Nest)

We've heard that there is a ritual performed every day on the Thundercrest Isles. It's some sort of worship of Yar`Lir and just about every being on Thundercrest is forced to attend. They say that their combined prayer and worship helps to keep their mistress calm and any day that they do not hold this ritual terrible storms rage across the floating islands, often hitting the Broodlands as well. We've heard that many of the goblins working on Thundercrest were sent there as much to take part in this ritual as to do labor. We want you to prevent or disrupt the ritual today so that our agents can use the cover of a storm to do some work. When you are ready, go to the Broodlands and find a way into Thundercrest. We need you to stop the residents from getting across the bridge to the place they call the Halls of History where this worship takes place.

You have been assigned the task 'House of the Autumn Rose'.

An ancient clan of goblin ninjas practices on the floating Thundercrest Isle. Known as the House of the Autumn Rose, these goblins are rarely seen and leave few witnesses of their bloody assassinations. The only warning they give of their attacks is to deliver a single rose to their chosen victim. Lieutenant Ekiltu found one such rose on his pillow when he awoke this morning. I need you to venture onto the isle and infiltrate the House of the Autumn Rose. Stop the assassins by any means necessary and, if possible, figure out who paid to have our Lieutenant killed.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

Kill Sensei Gnarlshadow 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Recover the contract on the Lieutenant's life 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Head into the center building and make your way through its halls. If you head east from the entrance doorway, you'll eventually come across "Poison Brewer Ishi", one of your kill targets, which hits for a max ~1,200 (pure melee; stunnable but not mezzable) and has ~50,000 hitpoints:

Poison Brewer Ishi has been slain by _____!
Sensei Gnarlshadow shouts, 'You have slain enough of my students! I'm waiting on the bridge. Let's finish this.'

The assassins (10 of which you need to kill) are located throughout the building. Some are static spawns while others are "traps" and will spawn in groups of one or two when you move through an area:

Hidden panels open from the ceiling as a pair of assassins drop from above.

Assassins hit for a max ~900 and are stunnable and mezzable.

For "Sensei Gnarlshadow", make your way back to the entrance of the temple and head west instead. You'll eventually come to its spawn point.

Kill Sensei Gnarlshadow, and loot "Autumn Rose Assassin's Contract" to complete the task:

Excellent work, my friends. Lieutenant Ekiltu hasn't rested since he found that rose in his quarters. It's too bad the Dark Reign cowards hire goblin assassins to do their dirty work; I would like to see them try to confront us directly. No matter, we will crush them on the field of battle soon enough.

There is a flock of drakes that regularly fly from the Nest to hunt our scouting parties. We need a group of adventurers to journey to their lair and clear out their nests. Slay six of these creatures and return with their talons as proof your kills. Be warned, our scouts report that these black wing drakes are part of a corrupted brood, a clutch that hatched near the epicenter of the curse that has spread through the Nest. It is whispered that dark magic now corrupts their bodies, making them more volatile and malignant than ordinary drakes. This will not be an easy task.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.



Touch the portal to the Nest 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance is the dragon portal in the far northeastern part of the Broodlands.



Kill 6 Black Wing Drakes 0/6 (The Nest)

Loot 6 Black Wing Drake Talons 0/6 (The Nest)

Deliver 1 Black Wing Drake Talons to Gordish Frozenheart 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

Head into the earth/sand wing (northern wing of the zone) and kill 6x "a black wing drake" (found throughout the caverns). Loot 6x "Black Wing Drake Talon" from them, and then hand in one of them to Gordish Frozenheart to complete.

Excellent work. You have cleared the way for the Norrath's Keepers scouting parties. Now they no longer have to watch the skies in fear and can concentrate on their missions. I'll inform my superiors of your success. They should be most pleased!

This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Bianca Galbraith (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum Level 59
- Minimum "kindly" faction with Norrath's Keepers

Hail her to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Lair Unguarded'.

Our scouts have seen Yar`Lir up in the clouds causing terrible storms. We need you to break into her lair and destroy some statues while she is going. We've heard that these iron statues have been specially created to help her control her storm powers when she sleeps so that they do not wreak havoc on the Broodlands. Destroy them and you may help sow confusion among our enemies. We have it on good authority that the gate that bars the bridge to her lair is closed when she leaves. There is a three-part magical key in the form of small draconic statues that can open the gate if there is need. If one creature holds all three keys the gate will unlock. Find those statues to get into the lair. We're pretty sure they are held by minions in the maze.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.







Touch the portal to Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).

Loot 1 Storm Statue 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Loot 1 Wing Statue 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Loot 1 Claw Statue 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

The above three items drop from "Breath of Yar`Lir"; "Wings of Yar`Lir"; and "Claws of Yar`Lir", respectively. These spawn in random locations in the maze - usually dead-ends, but not always. Each hits for a max ~1,300; has ~60,000 hitpoints; summons; and is stunnable and mezzable.

"Breath of Yar`Lir" casts an emote-based (six-second warning) Knockback:

You sense the whirlwind focusing on you. You think it might be a good idea to lower your profile against the incoming wind.

"Wings of Yar`Lir" procs "Wing Tempest". "Claws of Yar`Lir" doesn't appear to cast anything. Once you have these three items looted, you can head north.



Kill 4 Storm Dampener 0/4 (Thundercrest Isles)

These four golems are inside Yar`Lir's chamber in the far northeastern part of the zone. Outside the chamber is a "Storm Guardian" (hits for a max ~1,300; has ~65,000 hitpoints; stunnable; mezzable; summons). It doesn't see invis, so you can move past it. Inside the chamber, kill the four Storm Dampeners (very trivial kills).

Deliver 1 Storm Statue to Bianca Galbraith 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

Deliver 1 Wing Statue to Bianca Galbraith 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

Deliver 1 Claw Statue to Bianca Galbraith 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

Now all we can do is wait and see what happens. Hopefully you've weakened her and given us a slight edge. Well done.

We have received word that the Lavaspinner eggs possess magical powers that we can't allow to fall in the hands of the wrong person. We need someone to scout the lair and recover a few samples of their eggs. If you choose to accept this mission you will need to strike the lair fast and deadly. If the Lavaspinner queen is alerted you will certainly die.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

As you kill spiders in the zone, you'll see an emote, signaling the spawn of "unhatched lavaspinner eggs":

The ground shakes slightly, and a loud crack and thud can be heard echoing through the tunnels.

These eggs appear in the dead-end tunnels and in the central cavern (the second-largest cavern other than Volkara's cavern). Upon finishing the task, you see:

Hail him to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Rivals'.

A small group of unsavory types has entered the Nest seeking something. We have been unable to discover what they are after as our scout just returned. We know where they gained entrance, but you're going to be a few hours behind them. They may have met their death at the hands of the natives, but we want you to go in there and find whatever they were after and bring it back to me. If nothing else, they might have cleared the way a bit for you.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.







Touch the portal to the Nest 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance is the dragon portal in the far northeastern part of the Broodlands.



Follow the trail of your rivals 0/1 (The Nest)

This task takes place in the northernmost wing of the zone (the dry/desert/sand area). This step updates automatically at the entrance to this wing.



Find your rivals and what they seek 0/1 (The Nest)

Head to the northernmost cavern of the desert wing where you'll find some NPCs in a standoff:

Fahsheer Delure shouts, 'Ah, I see we have company. Perhaps you can break this standoff? Aid us against these beasts and I shall see that you are rewarded.'

a goblin shouts, 'You no help thief and invader! Run away now. Save self. Master come soon, destroy intruders!'

Fahsheer shouts, 'That decision is up to you, but how you could trust these monsters is unclear to me.'

Gimblemort shouts at an approaching spider, 'Get back! I'll burn you to ash if you take one more creepy step towards me!'

Fahsheer yells, 'Calm down everyone. We've kept them back so far. Be ready to execute plan B on my word.'

A goblin yells, 'You no B plan! You stay 'til master arrives.'

Attack the spiders and goblins, and you'll see:

Fahsheer yells, 'Go now while they're distracted! I'll deal with the new folks.'

Gimblemort shouts with glee, 'Yes! Burn you fuzzy-legged freaks!'

Fahsheer Delure attacks you while the spiders, goblins, and other Dark Reign NPCs attack each other. Fahsheer Delure hits for a max ~900 and has ~40,000 hitpoints. Kill her, and loot "Ancient Tooth of Archanalia" from her corpse. The other Dark Reign members will be killed by the Nest locals.



Deliver 1 Ancient Tooth of Archanalia to Gordish Frozenheart 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

Ah, you've returned. This is good news. We were worried about you. This is a very impressive tooth. It is obviously the tooth of a large dragon and will undoubtedly prove useful in our research.

A Different (In)Completion

In the tunnel preceding the end cavern of the desert wing is a drake named Silverclaw:

You say, 'Hail, Silverclaw'

Silverclaw says 'Well, these speak before attacking, that's new. I am wounded, that is certain, but I will fight you to my last breath if I must. I will live to recover [what has been taken]!'

You say, 'What has been taken?'

Silverclaw says 'Hah! Why should I trust you? You two-legged types have been in here killing what remain of my kind for a while. Why should I tell you anything? You will just kill me after I've given you the information you seek. Unless you [promise] me, in a very convincing manner, that you will not harm me, I will not speak to you further except to offer you a warning. Kill me before I recover what I have lost and I will use my last breath to curse you.'

You say, 'I promise...'

Silverclaw says 'Well, I see that I have little choice but to trust you. Another group of... miscreants was here a short while ago. They took something from me and fled. The only thing that kept me alive was my curse. I do indeed bear within me an ancient draconic power, one rarely seen these days and even less often in a mere dragon kin such as myself. It was because of this power and my love of history that earned me the right to bear the Tooth and become its guardian. I must have it [back]. Luckily those fools became lost during our fight and have attempted to escape in the wrong direction.'

You say, 'What about when you get it back?'

Silverclaw says 'As you can see, I am in no condition to battle those beasts again. I shall rest here until they find their way back and then attempt to destroy them.' Silverclaw looks thoughtful for a moment. 'Unless you could recover it for me. If you do, I will ensure that your passage out of this place is free of danger. Of course if you do not I shall endeavor to make leaving here as difficult as I can, and I can make that very difficult. Will you [return the Tooth] to me?'

You say, 'I'll return the Tooth...'

Silverclaw says 'Good. This is difficult for me to say, but good luck to you, _____. I have little left that was not taken by those you now seek, but I shall reward you with what I can upon the return of the great tooth.'

Hand in the tooth to Silverclaw to spawn a chest:

Silverclaw says 'You have brought it back! Wonderful! As I promised, you shall be able to leave this place unhindered. I also wish to reward you, but I do not know what creatures like you value. I do have this one small item that was dropped by those that stole the tooth, though. I also wish you to know about this [artifact] that you have returned to me.'

You have failed your assigned task.
Your shared task, 'Rivals [68+]', has ended.

You say, 'What is this artifact?'

Silverclaw says 'Archanalia was one of the first brood. He was held in high regard when this land was first hidden away from your kind. He was a great dragon known for his wisdom and biting sarcasm. His wit was legendary among our kind, as was his willingness to befriend his lesser kin. The idea of hiding this place was not one that he liked, for he enjoyed flying high above the world and watching it turn below him. He enjoyed interacting with two-legs, either by simply frightening them with his magnificence or by changing his form to pass among them. He knew that hiding the nest would mean seclusion within the mountains for an age or longer and the idea of it made him unhappy. Shall I [continue]?'

You say, 'Continue'

Silverclaw says 'Some others disliked the isolation as well, but their concern was about the loss of power and luxury. They did not want to surrender the lands to your people. The elders, however, agreed that the safety of the eggs was more important that any of these other concerns. It was decided that any wishing to live outside the nest would be sworn under magical oath to never reveal the location and even the purpose of this place. It fell upon Archanalia to perform this task, for he was trusted by most and had the power to make such magic binding on the minds of dragons. If you wish, I can tell you what happened [next].'

You say, 'What happened next?'

Silverclaw says 'Only the eldest dragons chose to remain behind. The younger ones wished to retain their place and power in the world. Some of those younger dragons were unwilling to have their memories altered and Archanalia was required to hunt them down and force their submission to the required magic or, in a very few cases, to destroy the rebel. When dealing with the last of these rebels, a very clever and powerful dragon despite his youth, Archanalia suffered a terrible festering wound. He returned to report success and to aid in creating the magic that would keep this place hidden. He lived many years after that, but his suffering was great. No one was able to cure his illness, not even Rikkukin. He died many decades ago. His body was eaten by the disease that infected him and the only thing untouched was one of his teeth. You have returned that tooth to me. As I promised, you shall remain safe while you leave, but you must hurry. I cannot promise safety here forever. Thank you and goodbye.'

Here, you get something out of it, but you won't be able to actually complete the mission. Known loot from this chest:

Blue Diamond
Cord of the Cunning

Despite the "failure", you still get the standard lockout for faction missions (45 minutes from the time of the request).

This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Bianca Galbraith (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum level 59
- Minimum "indifferent" faction with Norrath's Keepers

Hail her to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Scions of Thundercrest'.

You are amongst the first to travel into the very depths of Yar`Lir's lair and this is your chance to strike against her. Legend has it that there are three deadly scions that she controls. It is said that these scions can be commanded via three tomes of knowledge that are scattered amongst only the best and brightest within her collective.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.







Touch the portal to Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).



Find the Tome of the Wind 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Find the Tome of the Sky 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Find the Tome of the Storm 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must search out and recover the three tomes so that you can use them against the very creature who might otherwise command them against you.

The tomes are looted from "a sealed chest" which are scattered spawns throughout the temple entered from the zone-in point. It's possible these chests may appear at different locations in different tasks. Look in the side rooms as you make your way through the temple's halls.

One chest has been known to be in the first room to the east. Another in the first room down the hall to the west. Another is known to appear in the room at the end of the western hall.

With all three tomes recovered, head to the southeastern part of the zone (the maze area).



Kill the Scion of the Wind 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: The Tome of Wind may have clues as to unlocking the secret of the Scion of Wind. You should look through it and then confront the scion when you are ready.

The Scion of the Wind is at the entrance part of the maze (/loc -400, -2385, 295). Read the passage from the book to get it to attack:

You say, 'Kor Lal Lir Toval'

Scion of the Wind says 'You should not know those words! You will perish by my claw!'

It hits for a max ~1,300; summons; single-target rampages; and has ~100,000 hitpoints.



Kill the Scion of the Sky 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: The Tome of the Sky may have information that will aid you in fighting the Scion of the Sky. You should read through the tome so that its knowledge will be yours and then seek out and destroy the Scion of the Sky.

You'll be able to see the Scion of the Sky across the way from the Scion of the Wind's spawn point (/loc -205, -2485, 295). Read the passage:

You say, 'Nil Lal Lir Keval'

Scion of the Sky says 'You should not know those words! You will perish by my claw!'

The Scion of the Sky is of the same difficulty. It AE rampages.



Kill the Scion of the Storm 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You have uncovered the Tome of the Storm. Its contents should reveal to you the power to conquer the beast known as the Scion of the Storm. Look over it carefully and then search out the mighty scion and use its power against it.

The Scion of the Storm is located due south of the Sky's location (-685, -2570, 295). Read the passage to attack:

You say, 'Vek Lal Lir Qualal'

Scion of the Storm says 'You should not know those words! You will perish by my claw!'

This mob flurries.



Upon the death of the last scion, the task completes.

You have done well to find the tomes of the scions and use the very power that they were instilled with by Yar`Lir against them. Their deaths will leave an invaluable hole in her operations that you will be able to exploit in the time to come. Keep on your toes, however. Yar`Lir is a powerful being and has no doubt seen your attempts to destroy her and her kind.

You have been assigned the task 'Scrap Metal'.

We are in a battle for our lives with these dragons. We need the material to build weapons and armors that might give us an advantage. Our surviving scouts tell us that they have seen dragons wear a coat of shimmering scales, possibly some new metal. Our smiths believe that they can make weapons and armor from their scales or perhaps their egg shells. This is a dangerous mission, but we need someone to delve into the nesting grounds for these dragons and gather us materials. We'll need a large volume of scales and egg shells. Our scouts have found a secret entrance into their nest from the Broodlands. Good luck!

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.



Touch the portal to the Nest 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance is the dragon portal in the swamp area of the Broodlands. This is the same entrance as the Vishimtar raid instance (west-southwest part of the zone).



Loot 10 Silvery Dragon Scale Fragments 0/10 (The Nest)

Loot 10 Golden Dragon Scale Fragments 0/10 (The Nest)

Loot 15 Metallic Dragon Shell Fragments 0/15 (The Nest)

You have been assigned the task 'Simple Task'.

I have for you a simple task. Bring me a flower from a garden. Sure, that garden is on a magically floating island. Yes, that island is the lair of an ancient dragon of trendous power. Of course minions will be everywhere, but all we want is one plant. How hard can that be? There is a small tree that grows a rose they call the Dark Lady. They say it has amazing powers. They also say that it is difficult to transport alive. You need to figure out how to do that. They say that if you don't transport it in the right container with the proper fertilizer it will die. No, I don't really know who "they" are, just bring me that rose alive.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.



Touch the portal to the Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).

Explore the Garden of Yar'Lir on a western island 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Find a way to keep the Dark Lady alive so that you can bring it back 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Deliver one Potted Dark Lady to Bianca Galbraith 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

Cross the western bridge, enter the building, and make a left (south) down the hallway where you'll find "Goblin Gardener". This hits for a max ~1,800; has ~62,500 hitpoints; is stunnable; and is immune to mez. Loot an "Inscripted Pot" from its corpse (two-slot container).

Inside the garden (which is the large center room not far from the bridge), find and pick up "Dark Lady", a bright red ground spawn in the garden area. (When you are near the Dark Lady, you'll get a task update and an emote.)

At this point a timer of sorts starts. Periodically, you will see emotes like this:

The Dark Lady withers. It is only a matter of time before it dies. You know you must hurry and find a way to plant it properly.

At this time, the "Dark Lady" disappears and you get a different one on your cursor (other example types: "Sickly Dark Lady", "Wilted Dark Lady", "Withered Dark Lady"). There is no indication of how much time you have before the "Dark Lady" dies. Clear the garden and the guardians surrounding it. You will eventually see the emote:

A loud, hissing voice shouts, 'What is going on here? Someone shall answer to the Lady of the Tempest for their actions here!'

The Master Courier has spawned and will make its way to the garden. Kill it, and loot "Drake Fertilizer" from its corpse. Combine this with the "Dark Lady" in the "Inscripted Pot" to produce a "Potted Dark Lady". Take this item back to Bianca Galbraith in the Lavastorm Mountains to complete the task.

Hail him to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Spider's Eye'.

Stories say that when the most ancient spider queens die their bodies turn to dust because of their age. That dust blows away, leaving two stones behind. Some tales say that the brain and heart become the stones; others say that it is the soul and the mind. They say that these stones have incredible magical powers when placed together to form what is called the Spider's Eye. Some say that the combined stone will grant eternal life to one that ingests it if they survive the pain of it. Others say that it turns the imbiber into a powerful half spider creature. One tale describes the planted stone growing into a magical tree; another says it's a nest of spiders that serve their new master. If even one of these stories is true, this Spider's Eye is a powerful item that might mean our salvation. This is important to us, please see if you can find the two stones and return them to us undamaged and separated.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.







Touch the portal to the Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).



Navigate your way through the Dojo to find the hostage 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Lila Trulan can be found at /loc -400, -220, 295. This is in the main temple (center temple due north of the zone-in point), southeasternmost room (in the room that leads into the maze area of the zone).

2x "Goblin Captor" are next to her.

Get rid of the captors standing in your way 0/2 (Thundercrest Isles)

They each hit for a max ~1,300 and are stunnable and mezzable. One of them is pure melee; the other is a Wizard and casts a lot. Both proc standard goblin spells:

Goblin Hamstring: Single Target, (-17)
1: Decrease Movement by 25%

Goblin Headbutt: Single Target, (-17)
1: Stun (3.00 sec)



Speak with the hostage, Lila Trulan, and let her know she's OK 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Something about that encounter didn't sit right. It was almost too easy. But for now you have more important things to worry about such as the hostage that is now under your care. You must speak with her to find out exactly where she needs to go and let he know that she must follow you back if she is to get out alive.

Hail her twice.

You say, 'Hail, Lila Trulan'

Lila Trulan says 'Thank you so much for rescuing me. I don't know how much longer I would have been able to hold out. Let's get out of here! Just let me know when it's safe to follow you or if I should stop and wait.'

She will do as you say:

You say, 'Follow me'

Lila Trulan says 'Thanks so much for rescuing me! Let's get out of here!'

You say, 'Follow me'

Lila Trulan says 'I'm already following you!'

You say, 'Stop'

Lila Trulan says 'Ok, stopping for a moment. Let's not wait too long, I'm worried they'll find me again.'

You say, 'Stop!'

Lila Trulan says 'I'm already stopped! Can't you see I'm not moving?'



Get Lila Trulan back to the entrance isle 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: She was very thankful that someone was here to rescue her and even though she is worried there may still be something out there to get her, she is confident in your abilities that you can lead her to safety. You must venture back to the entrance of the isles where she can safely return to the mainland below.

There is no respawn between the entrance and the path taken to her location. Lila Trulan follows well, but somewhat slowly. When you cross the bridge down to the entrance, you'll be ambushed by 2x "Goblin Captor" mobs.



Get rid of the Captors standing in your way 0/2 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You knew it was too good to be true! Two more of the Captors showed up just as you were about to leave. You let the other two know how powerful you really were; maybe it's time to do so again. But watch out, you don't want them to hurt the girl.

These two are of the same difficulty as previous.



Speak with the hostage Lila Trulan and let her know she is ok 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Hail her to complete the task.


Rewards:
Up to 56 Radiant Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Norrath's Keepers Token" (faction turn-in item) Reward: Radiant Crystal
Reward: Norrath's Keepers Token

Norrath's Keepers: The Creator (Normal):

For an overview of the Dragons of Norrath expansion, see this wiki article.
For an overview of progression, see quest entries for Norrath's Keepers and the Dark Reign.




This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Bianca Galbraith (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum Level 59
- Minimum "amiable" faction with Norrath's Keepers

Hail her to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'The Creator'.

We have word of a creator of statues within the isles of Thundercrest. We're not yet sure who is commissioning these creatures for the dragon who resides there, but we do know that not all are functioning as they should be.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

Whoever requests the task receives a "Lens of Truth".







Touch the portal to the Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).



Investigate the Garden of Yar`Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Destroy the defunct sentries you've uncovered 0/3 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Your first clue is that the defunct statues may yet be waiting in the Garden of Yar`Lir. Seek them out and destroy them.

One character must venture into the inner room to complete the "investigate" stage. You must destroy three of "a defunct sentry" found in the inner room. These are very trivial kills. Once they're dead, you feel some shaking and see:

Something has come alive in a nearby room! Be warned!



You must find the source of this disturbance and defeat it before it can roam free! 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: The rumbling you just felt must have been a sentry that is fully automated! Judging by the magnitude of the power, it must be nearby. Search for this beast and destroy it before it has a chance to destroy you!

Upon destroying the defunct sentries in the inner room, a "Furious Sentry" in one of the rooms at the "top" of the building. Clear the adds and kill it to proceed. The mob hits for a max ~1,100 and has ~45,000 hitpoints.



Recover the energy crystal from the defeated sentry 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Time is short but you must take the energy crystal that has been left behind. Its use is unclear just yet, but the pulsating emissions that you can sense draws you ever closer to it.

Loot an Energy Crystal from the Furious Sentry.



Identify the crystal to uncover its hidden secrets 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Now that you have the crystal in your grasp, you must identify the crystal to uncover its hidden heritage. Such information may give you a better understanding as to who, or what, is creating these statues.

Head east from the zone-in point (away from the main building and toward the opposite set of gates). Whoever has the "Energy Crystal" should stand at the set of double doors here. Then, whoever has the "Lens of Truth" should right-click it on that player. Alternatively, if you have a pure caster, they can cast the spell "Identify" on the player (no other form of Identify works - not the General AA, not a bard's - only a pure caster).

The Lends of Truth disappears when you click it, so make sure you're at the right location (where the double doors meet).

Upon clicking, you see:

The crystal glows brilliantly filling the room with an eerie light. A scream of rage can be heard in the distance and moments later a voice echoes across the island, 'Foolish adventurers, you will all meet death for destroying my sentries!'

"Creator Kro`Val" (doesn't see invisibility) spawns at the double doors while four sentries (see invis) spawn in the area just west of these.



Kill the creator of the statues 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: The crystal's deeply ensconced knowledge has shown you that there is one creator of the statues. This being is a direct underling to the great dragon of these isles, Yar`Lir. You must find this creator and slay him before he can bring to life any of his latest creations!

Creator Kro`val is a fairly straightforward fight. It hits for a max ~1,300; has ~55,000 hitpoints; is stunnable and mezzable; appears to be pure melee; and flees at low health. Upon its death, the task completes:

In an amazing turn of events, you were able to destroy the creator before he could release several more of his dire minions upon you. His death will deal a tremendous blow to the operations of the dragon Yar`Lir, and perhaps cripple any attempt she was to have of driving you and your fellow adventurers out of her realm. Well done!


Rewards:
Up to 40 Radiant Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Norrath's Keepers Token" (faction turn-in item) Reward: Radiant Crystal
Reward: Norrath's Keepers Token

Norrath's Keepers: The Drake Menace (Normal):

For an overview of the Dragons of Norrath expansion, see this wiki article.
For an overview of progression, see quest entries for Norrath's Keepers and the Dark Reign.




This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Boldger Bristlebeard (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum "indifferent" faction with Norrath's Keepers

Hail him to get a quest window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'The Drake Menace'.

There has been news of the drakes of Lavaspinner's Lair growing in ranks. They have already started hunting near our encampment and have injured several of our agents. Please travel deep within their lair and decrease their numbers.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.



Touch the cave entrance to Lavaspinner's Lair 0/1 (The Broodlands)

This will be marked on your compass (far southern instance entrance).

NOTE: There is a drake roamer that can path right up to the instanced entrance.

Destroy the eggs before they are able to raise an army of drakes 0/15 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

To destroy "a drake egg", target it and type /open. Most of the time, a drake spawns upon destroying an egg (standard zone mob). Also, the eggs occasionally hit (bump) for about 450 points. As you open them, you'll see emotes forewarning a final encounter:

The ground shakes slightly, and a loud crack and thud can be heard echoing through the tunnels.

As you destroy the egg, you can hear screeches behind you with the flapping of wings nearby.

Defeat the Drake Matriarch before she can produce more drakes 0/1 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

After opening the last egg, the Drake Matriarch spawns:

As the final egg shatters you can feel a gust of wind hit you as the Drake Matriarch assaults you.

It hits for a max ~1,300; has ~85,000 hitpoints; casts wizard spells; and can summon a weak pet. Upon its death, the task completes.


Rewards:
Radiant Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Norrath's Keepers Token" (faction turn-in item) Reward: Radiant Crystal
Reward: Norrath's Keepers Token

Norrath's Keepers: Throes of Contagion (Normal):

For an overview of the Dragons of Norrath expansion, see this wiki article.
For an overview of progression, see quest entries for Norrath's Keepers and the Dark Reign.




This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Bianca Galbraith (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum level 59
- Minimum "apprehensive" faction with Norrath's Keepers

Hail her to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Throes of Contagion'.

We've long thought that the best way to rid the lands of dragon kind is to do it from the air. Now is our chance. The majority of the minions of these isles are at rest on what they like to call Storm's Respite. If you are successful, this day of rest will be their last. To accomplish this feat, you are going to need to make three unique poisons and place them strategically throughout the Thundercrest Isles. Be careful though, because once you've entered the last area, you'll only have 20 minutes to complete your mission and leave the area or else you will be caught in the poison's areas of effect and possibly die as well. So you don't arouse any suspicion, you're going to need to clear out some of the Isle denizens.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

Mobs in this zone respawn. This is important to note as you'll be on a timer to reach the entrance once you've completed all but the last step.







Touch the portal to Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).



Eliminate the guards from the isles while you are placing the toxin 0/12 (Thundercrest Isles)

This step will get updated as you progress through the task. The guards are called "an enraged puma". These hit for a max ~850 and have ~60,000 hitpoints. They are immune to lulls, mez, snare, and root. They see invisibility and summon. They come in pairs. There are more than 12 in the zone.

Four of them are found on the zone-in bridge. Another four are located on the southeast bridge that leads out of the center temple into the maze area in the southeastern corner of the zone. Another four are located on the west/southwestern bridge that leads to the Garden of Yar`Lir.



Look for the components to make a chromotoxin 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must make a poison called Chromotoxin. Another force lost their lives just before you arrived, so there may be something left over from their attempt.

The components are found on the corpses of the previous force (3x "a corpse"). Find them, target them, and /open to loot the components for the potions.

The first corpse is located just inside the zone-in doors. It drops:

1x Custom Mortar and Pestle (container)
1x Chromatic Dye
1x Explosive Resin
1x Lined Poison Vial
1x Constrict Suspension

Combine the four items in the container to produce 1x "Chromatoxin".



Place the Chromotoxin at the end of the bridge to the center dojo 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Now that the Chromotoxin has been created, you must make your way to the end of the bridge that is connected to the main isle. The toxins will spread throughout the dojo killing all that inhabit the area.

This step automatically updates at the end of the zone-in bridge.



Look for the components to make a Chlorotoxin 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must make a poison called Chlorotoxin. Another force was here just before you were, but were defeated. There may be remnants of the components for this poison nearby.

Head towards the garden temple in the southwestern/western part of the zone. On the bridge will be a second "a corpse". It drops:

1x Custom Mortar and Pestle (container)
1x Chloroform
1x Explosive Resin
1x Lined Poison Vial
1x Constrict Suspension

Combine the four items in the container to produce 1x "Chlorotoxin".



Place the Chlorotoxin at the entrance to the Garden of Yar'Lir 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Now that the Chlorotoxin has been created, you must make your way to the entrance to the Garden of Yar`Lir and place the toxin. The rays of the sun will ignite the toxin and cause it to explode and spread over a great many areas within the isles and the dragonlife below.

This is a location update. Head across the bridge from where the corpse was and to the building entrance (where you'll also find two more enraged pumas).



Look for the components to make a Precipitoxin 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must make a poison called Precipitoxin. Another party was here, but was brutally slain before they were able to complete their mission. Perhaps you can find the components for that toxin nearby.

Head towards the maze area in the southeastern corner of the zone. The third "a corpse" is found on the bridge leading out of the dojo (center temple) to the maze area. It drops:

1x Custom Mortar and Pestle (container)
1x Essence of Precipitation
1x Explosive Resin
1x Lined Poison Vial
1x Constrict Suspension

Combine the four items in the container to produce 1x "Precipitoxin".



Place the Precipitoxin at the entrance to the maze 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: Finally, the Precipitoxin is ready. You will need to place it in just the right spot. There is a spot on the bridge between the dojo and the maze where it will spread evenly and quickly. Place it there and do it before you are discovered.

This is a location update across the bridge. Just keep moving towards the maze until you see:

The three toxins have been set. You have 20 minutes to get out of Thundercrest before the deadly toxins fill the air.



You have 20 minutes to get your party back to the entrance isle and exit Thundercrest before the toxins are released 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Task Window Says: You must return to the entrance and exit Thundercrest before the 20 minutes are up. Hurry now with your entire party, there is not much time!

This is a location update at the entrance doors at the zone-in. Everyone in the zone must be present before it will update. Any players in the task who ae outside the zone won't count towards this requirement. Do this within 20 minutes to complete the task. Fail to do so, and you'll be repeating it.

You've struck a great blow against the dragons. The combined power of the poisons has been a severe detriment to their kind and will allow you and your forces to quickly overtake them and the mighty storm dragon, Yar`Lir. Well done!


Rewards:
Up to 56 Radiant Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Norrath's Keepers Token" (faction turn-in item) Reward: Radiant Crystal
Reward: Norrath's Keepers Token

Norrath's Keepers: Tracking the Kirin (Normal):

For an overview of the Dragons of Norrath expansion, see this wiki article.
For an overview of progression, see quest entries for Norrath's Keepers and the Dark Reign.




This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Kanetheus Forestwalker (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum level 59
- Minimum "apprehensive" faction with Norrath's Keepers

Hail him to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Tracking the Kirin'.

There is but one kirin who knows the full history of Stillmoon Temple. Finding the elusive creature has proved difficult however. We would like you to try your hand at finding him and return any knowledge of the Stillmoon Temple that you may be able to obtain. To accomplish this you will have to cause a commotion of some sort that may bring him out of hiding. Once you've killed enough of the guards, the kirin is likely to be wandering about unseen. Look for a sign that he's lurking around and track him back to his lair. Then bring back the tome we seek.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.



Touch the portal to Stillmoon Temple 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the north-central part of the Broodlands, near the non-instanced entrance to Stillmoon Temple).



Kill 10 Iron warders 0/10 (Stillmoon Temple)

Kill 1 Elusive Kirin 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

Loot 1 Book of Knowledge from the Elusive Kirin 0/1 (Stillmoon Temple)

Kill 10x "an iron warder", and then seek out "Elusive Kirin". To do this, you'll have to run around and get emote updates before it spawns.

First, head east down the long hallway full of iron warders until you come to the doorway to the sand area in the northeastern part of the zone. When you open this door, you get the first emote (in plain text):

Unusual footprints can be seen on the ground before you. Perhaps if you keep searching, you will find more.

Copy the following map points into one of your "stillmoona.txt" map files. The update locations don't appear to vary, and the points below should be pretty accurate.

So you have found me. Too bad for you that I did not want to be found!

The Elusive Kirin hits for a max ~900; has ~80,000 hitpoints; AE rampages; and casts a knockback. It does not see invisibility. Kill it, and loot the Book of Knowledge from its corpse.

Clockwork Commander Widgetsworth says '_____, thank the gods you're here! We can really use your [help]!'

You say, 'Help?'

Clockwork Commander Widgetsworth says 'We're the rescue team from the Solusek Mining Company. The members of Expedition 991 dug into some goblin tunnels and were taken hostage in Solusek's Eye.

You have one hour before the goblins execute the gnomish hostages. Be careful with the clockwork machines too; the Solusek Mining Co only has a limited number in stock.

Speak with Clockwork Commander Cogswain 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

Hail the nearby Clockwork Commander Cogswain to enter the instance.

You say, 'Hail, Clockwork Commander Cogswain'

Clockwork Commander Cogswain says ''Here's what we have in commission. Careful with that Juggernaut model. It wasn't really designed to handle narrow mining tunnels.''

You are ported into an instanced version of Solusek Eye.

You'll see Clockwork Commander Cogswain at the zone-in who will teleport you out of the instance if you ask him to do so.

You say, 'Hail, Clockwork Commander Cogswain'

Clockwork Commander Cogswain says 'I'll set up here and cover your six. You're point man on Alpha team, which means you're going behind enemy lines to find those hostages. Let me know if you need an [evac].'

Welnik's Picks and Ore (Normal): This quest may be doable at an earlier level, however the rewards have required levels of 40.

Zone into Lavastorm Mountains and find Miner Welnik is a little north of Druid Ring (location +1030, +500).

Miner Welnik says 'Oh dear, oh dear. Where have they gone? My boss is going to kill me!'

You say, 'Hail, Miner Welnik'

Miner Welnik says 'Hello hello, I am afraid I don't have much time for idle chatter, I must find those [picks]!'

You say, 'What picks?'

Miner Welnik says 'The mining picks! Bibol had me gathering up all the ones that were no longer usable to take to the smith and they are just gone. If I don't get them back in time, he will have my head! I've already wasted far too much [digging] time looking for them.'

You say, 'Digging?'

Miner Welnik says 'Dig dig dig, that's what we do. I don't know what is so all-important, but the boss has been in no mood for tricks this time around. I must [find] those picks and dig another six feet!'

You say, 'I will help you find them'

Miner Welnik says 'Yes find them, I must! Oh . . Oh what are you doing? Do you think you could [help]? Can you find them for me?'

You say, 'I can help'

Miner Welnik says 'There are four that I am still missing. How does this sound, I will stay here and dig to keep them off my back, and you find the picks and take them to the smith? His name is Numden, has a little shop in Steamfont. I am sure that I could find a way to reward you.'

The Mining picks can be found as groundspawns around Lavastorm:

Cracked Mining Pick +2510, -680
Rusted Mining Pick +1460, -480
Wobbly Mining Pick +1520, +900

You gain epperience!!

You receive a Bundle of Shiny New Picks.

Return to Lavastorm Mountains and give the new picks to Miner Welnik.

Miner Welnik says 'Oh, these are perfect! Please accept this as a reward. Actually, since you have done so much for me, I might be able to give you something [extra].'
You gain experience!!

You receive an Intricate Tool Belt.

You say, 'Something extra?'

Miner Welnik says 'I am a bit of a jeweler on the side. I find it relaxing after working in the mines all day, and it comes in handy when I find the spare gem laying around. There is a special kind of fiery ore that can be found in these mountains. Bring me four pieces of it, and I shall make you a ring. How does that sound?'

Head to Solusek's Eye and kill goblins until you've looted four pieces of Fiery Ore.

Return to Lavastorm Mountains with the Fiery Ore and give them to Miner Welnik.

Miner Welnik says 'That's the stuff. Three for me, one for you! Here is your ring.'

You gain experience!!

You receive a Glowing Magma Ring. Reward: Glowing Magma Ring
Reward: Intricate Tool Belt

Wizard Epic 1.5 Pre-Quest (Normal): This flags you to start the quest for the epic 1.5 if you don't have the The Staff of the Four (epic 1.0).

The Start

Find Talwyn Flamecaller, a High Elf at location +2182, -1042, +332 in the Lavastorm Mountains.

You say, 'Hail, Talwyn Flamecaller'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'The fire of destruction burns within you, does it not? I can see that your affinity for destructive magic has served you well in your travels. It has served you so well that it has caught the eye of Solusek Ro. He has created and sent me here to discuss the matter of joining his legions. If you do, you will be granted power unheard of on mortal lands. What say you?'

You say, 'I agree.'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'I knew you would. . . What wizard could refuse an offer of such power? Since you have proven yourself only through combat and not yet through adventuring, I require you to prove yourself worthy once more. A small set of tests, really.'

You say, 'What tests?'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'The tests I require of you are merely to measure your ability as a wizard and follower of Solusek. They will draw upon the focal points of being a wizard. Through intelligence and its application to magic, you can call upon the elements more often without strain. Through subtlety, you are able to be destructive without calling the attention unto yourself. Through research, new, more powerful spells and incantations are discovered. Through channeling, the ability to concentrate on spells is enhanced, even in the most distracting of environments. Once you have completed these tests, return to me with the results, so that I may review them.'

Test of Intelligence

You say, 'I am ready for the test of intelligence.'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'Through the intelligent use of magic, we are able to become more efficient at what we do. To prove to me that you have this gift, I will need you to work your way through a set of riddles. These riddles will take you full circle, beginning with me and ending with me. The path between those two points must be discovered by your own mettle. Take this note and do as it instructs. Take care when handling these notes, they are the lifeblood that will guide you on your journey and should you lose them, you will fail the test. I hope to see you back here with the correct answer soon.'

Find the following 10 items:

Old Pipe (Dagnor's Cauldron: -864, -914 [lake floor])
Worn Turban (Plane of Tranquility: Fished)
Red Cloth (Maiden's Eye: -31, -713 [fire pit])
Platinum Token (Plane of Justice: +267, -174)
Ivory Bone (Gulf of Gunthak: -34, -513 [on sunken ship])
White Sash (Mons Letalis: +24, +624, +207)
Empty Jug (Katta Castellum: -250, -1050 [table in bar])
Emerald-tipped Staff (Gorge of King Xorbb: +220, -1165)
Golden Dagger (Skyfire Mountains)
Meditation Basket (Warsliks Woods - tunnels leading to Dalnir)

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'Excellent work, _____! There was once a time when I thought these puzzles could not be solved, but through perseverance and knowledge, you have passed the test of intelligence.'

Receive Rune of Greater Desiccation.

Test of Channeling

You say, 'I am ready for the test of channeling.'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'In the fortress of the Sarnak, amidst some old bones, you will find a small, cursed trinket that I require you to obtain. I say that it is cursed because any that try to take it are surrounded in a swarm of scorpions. The scorpions are small and not dangerous by themselves, but when a hundred of them engulf your body, you can't stand but to run away. With your proficiency in channeling, you must go and retrieve this trinket for me.'

Head to the Lake of Ill Omen and go to the Sarnak Fortress and into the room with Chancellor Of Di`Zok. Kill the skeleton on the table to spawn several scorpions (green, easy kills for a 65). One of them will drop a Cursed Talisman. Bring it back to Talwyn.

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'Your speed and concentration impress even me. The Test of Channeling is no easy feat to accomplish, especially with so many dangerous distractions nearby.'

He then gives you the Talisman back.

Test of Research

You say, 'I am ready for the test of research.'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'Our ranks simply cannot be filled with slouches! We need to know that you will take the time and effort to be an effective wizard, not only for your own preservation, but also to be a contributor to our cause. You will be required to create a new spell. The research will be difficult, the runes many, but through cascade, coruscation, flash, desiccation, glint, impulse, synergy, tempest, vortex, and conflagration, you will find the path that burns deep within you. When you have crafted the spell, return it to me so that I may inspect it.'

The Runes of Cascade, Flash, Glint, Impulse, Synergy, Tempest, and Vortex are common mid-to-high level drops. They are droppable and can likely be found on vendors or in the Bazaar.

The 8th rune is the Rune of Coruscation is a no drop rune. Confirmed drops: A Sambata Tribal Advisor in Dawnshroud, Hynid Howler in Kodtaz, Pulsating Pool of Magma in Solusek C, high risk LDONs.

The 9th rune is the Rune of Greater Conflagration, which has been known to drop during high risk LDONs and off Shar Vinitras in Akheva.

The final rune is one you'll already have: The Rune of Greater Desiccation received previously.

Combine the runes in a lexicon to get a Spell: Electrical Charge, required skill 190. It has ten charges of Electrical Charge. Hand this spell to Talwyn.


Talwyn Flamecaller says, 'The test of research wears thin upon you, but with this parchment I hold in my hand, you have proven your worth as a contributor to the cause.'

You will receive the spell scroll back.

Test of Subtlety

You say, 'I am ready for the test of subtlety'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'In Steamfont you will find a friend of mine, Yama Twerik, with a bit of a dilemma on his hands. He was able to bring a non-functional clockwork back to Ak`Anon from the Plane of Innovation. He is by no means a wizard, so he needs help recharging the battery of the clockwork to get it working again. Go see, he will discuss with you the details of his predicament.'

Find Yama Twerik in Steamfont at location +1260, -1760 outside the minotaur caves.

You say, 'Hail, Yama Twerik'

Yama Twerik says 'Just in time! Talwyn said he might be sending me someone to help me with this particular predicament. You see I need help with this guy here, his battery has gone dry and we cannot find a way to recharge it. We think the clockworks of innovation are powered through some kind of magical energy, different from what is stored in normal batteries. I would like you to use your best electrical magic to try and resurrect his battery.'

You say, 'I will resurrect his battery.'

Yama Twerik says 'Ok good, but here is the thing, we have to be really careful. I don't want to overcharge the battery, and you will have to cast on it while I am holding the correct wires together. If you don't do it at the right time you will either fry me, or it will be a waste and we will have to start completely over. Let me know when you have cleared your mind and regained your magical strength, and are ready to start.'

You say, 'I am ready.'

Yama Twerik says 'Excellent, then I shall begin performing my work.'

Yama Twerik says 'Stay sharp, young wizard, I will give you cue to begin to infuse this creation with your magics. Take care to put just the right amount of effort into the spell, otherwise we may overcharge the battery, or you might cause me harm. If you miss your cue, it will be a waste and we would have to start over.'

Follow Yama..

Yama Twerik says 'I'm almost ready for you to make the first charge. . . Just another second. . . Ok, wizard, give it your best shot.'

Click your Spell: Electrical Charge.

Inactive clockwork feels static energy spark over them.

Yama Twerik says 'Wonderful, I knew this would work. C'mon, let's see what we can do here.'

Yama Twerik turns some bolts and twists some wires before saying, 'Alright, give it another shot.'

Click the spell again.

Inactive clockwork feels static energy spark over them.

Yama Twerik says 'Great, this appears to be working, I can barely contain my excitement'

Yama Twerik grabs a new wire and attaches it to a small bundle of wires inside the clockwork. After several seconds of making some modifications he says, 'This looks to be working, a couple more blasts like that and we'll be up and running in no time! Go ahead and give me a good, solid charge.'

Click the spell.

Inactive clockwork feels static energy spark over them.

Yama Twerik says 'This should be the last one, wizard. Put everything you�ve got into this one and lets see what happens!'

Click the spell again.

Inactive clockwork feels static energy spark over them.

Yama Twerik says 'I appreciate your help there, young wizard. Send Talwyn my thanks for sending such a capable young recruit to help me out here.'

Head back to Talwyn Flamecaller.

You say, 'Hail, Talwyn Flamecaller'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'You have completed the four tests of your abilities, but your journey to joining Solusek's legion is far from complete. You must now assemble a wand to help further focus your energies. In the lands of Discord, power surges and fades in an awesome display, the fluxing power flows through all things on the landscape. Go, investigate the lands of Discord; return to me with a fluxing rod, gem, rune, and ore. With them you will be ready to take your first steps as a new soldier.'

You've completed the pre-quest. You can now go on to your Epic 1.5 quest.

Need logs of all dialogues (these are transcriptions).
Wizard Epic 1.5: Staff of Prismatic Power (Normal): If you have the Staff of the Four or have completed the pre-quest, find Talwyn Flamecaller, a High Elf, at location +2182, -1042, +332 in the Lavastorm Mountains.

Talwyn Flamecaller says "The fire of destruction burns within you, does it not? I can see that your affinity for destructive magic has served you well in your travels. It has served you so well that it has caught the eye of Solusek Ro. He has created and sent me here to discuss the matter of joining his legions. If you do, you will be granted power unheard of on mortal lands. Will you [agree]?"

You say, "agree"

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'You have completed the tests of your abilities, but your journey to joining Solusek's legion is far from complete. You must now assemble a wand to help further focus your energies. In the lands of Discord power surges and fades in an awesome display, the fluxing power flows thru all things in teh landscape. Go, investigate the lands of Discord; return to me with a fluxing rod, gem, rune, ore. With them you will be ready to take your first steps as a new soldier.'

You say, 'What fluxing rod?'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'The rod that will be used to create the foundation for the staff can only be found in the place where magic tears and screams across the landscape. Only in the plane where discord reigns does the power exist to charge the rod properly. A race that has been recently discovered there has been seen carrying around rods of super charged discordant magic. We are unsure of their origin, but we believe the rods hold a great, yet unknown power worthy of use in this staff.'

A Fluxing Staff is dropped by the Girplan Guardian in Wall of Slaughter. It is a nasty raid encounter, so bring some friends. It can spawn a chest with additional loot.

You say, 'What fluxing gem?'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'Fluxing gems have been found growing in the desert of Luclin. They form from the sand that has been blasted by magic. Sun Revenants have been known to collect them. Go to the plateau, and speak the word proclaim your desire to take their gems, this will draw out the elite revenants, one of them should be carrying the fluxing gem.'

Head to the Scarlet Desert and find the Elite Sun Revenant.

You say, 'I have come for your gem.'

A voice booms from the center of the cauldron. 'These gems are sacred, important to our survival, you shall not have them.'

Elite Sun Revenant spawns as a level 75 Wizard. He is KoS and is another raid encounter. Loot the Fluxing Gem from his corpse. He can also spawn a chest with additional loot.

You say, 'What fluxing rune?'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'Fluxing runes are carried by the army of Terris Thule. These runes help her minions slip into their victim's dreams more easily. I believe you would be able to find one being carried by the lord of the hobgoblins.'

The Fluxing Rune is dropped by the Hobgoblin Horrorfiend in the back of the Plane of Nightmare caves (/loc?). He is a bit easier than the previous two encounters, but you will still need a few groups. Loot the rune from his corpse. A chest can spawn with additional loot.

You say, 'What fluxing ore?'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'It shouldn't be too hard to find some fluxing ore in an area we have termed the Ruined City of Dranik. Look in areas where one might expect to find ore-veins. Look on the mountain sides, beneath cliffs, even among the loose pieces of rock in the area.'

A Fluxing Chunk of Ore can be found in the rat caves of the Ruined City of Dranik. Location is +1360, -337.

Return to Talwyn and hand him the Fluxing Gem, Staff, Ore, and Rune.

Talwyn Flamecaller says, 'You are indeed ready to join the ranks as a soldier of Solusek Ro. Every soldier in Solusek's league must wield a staff of power, which will focus your abilities in a way that you have never felt before! Fear will consume you as you feel your essence being ripped from your body. Do not give up, use the staff with faith and hope that you will be rewarded with the most powerful item you could ever imagine.'

Receive a Staff of Fluxing Power.

You say, 'Tell me about this powerful item.'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'To lay hands on this staff you will have to construct it of items of this world. Power is not given out freely, you must earn it. You will be pressed to the limits of your knowledge and abilities. To begin you will need to gather the fires of Solusek himself. These fires burn in the deepest part of the dungeons named after him. The pure flame burns near the runes. Bring it to me to examine when you get it.'

Go to the Cavern of Exile (aka Solusek C). You will have to complete a ring event ending in the death of the Pure Flame Elemental. Approximate location is 0, -200. You'll see a circular room with eight lava elementals, four lava vindicators, and four lava champions. Kill these. (We could use their exact in-game names and approximate levels.)

The room grows warmer as the lava pool begins to steam heavily.

The next wave consists of four Furious Magma Guardians. Kill them.

The lava starts to bubble and churn. Dark shapes move beneath the molten rock.

Two Inflamed Champions spawn. Kill these.

The pool of lava begins to boil furiously. Something large is growing within.

The Pure Flame Elemental spawns on the middle rock.

Pure Flame Elemental says, 'Why have you awakened me mortals?'

Kill the elemental and loot the Wisp of Pure Flame. Head back to Lavastorm and give it to Talwyn.

Talwyn Flamecaller says, 'You have obtained the pure flame? That was impressive how quickly you did it, the other wizards I am recruiting have not returned yet. Back to the recruitment, you will need pure ice. The ice is coldest in the wastes of Velious. Retrieve this pure ice and bring it back to me.'

The "pure ice" he speaks of is the Shard of Pure Ice. It is dropped in Siren's Grotto by Mistress of the Darkwater. Beware that sirens in this area chain aggro, so you will want to pacify them. The Mistress herself hits for about 500, and has an AE DoT which drops 100hp/tick and acts as a 15% slow. Loot the ice and return it to Talwyn.

Talwyn Flamecaller says, 'I can see the pure ice is in your possession. Take care while handling it because it is fragile. To infuse the staff with the powers you have attained you will need to retrieve a tapestry bag from the weavers in the Plane of Tranquility. Go talk to Kalym; he should be able to help you.'

Kalym Rasalan is in the Plane of Tranquility at location -304, -1162 (a house next to the Plane of Nightmare).

You say, 'Hail Kalym Rasalan'

Kalym Rasalan says, 'Hello _____, Talwyn told me of the coming of new recruits. I suppose he told you that you would need to use the magic in our woven tapestries to create a satchel to hold something very delicate? Well, you are lucky enough that I have this finished swatch of tapestry here that you can use. I am busy and can't tailor it for you though. You will need to tailor it yourself. If you take the tapestry, a backpack pattern, and a silk cord you should be able to tailor it with moderate effort.'

Receive a Silken Tapestry. You'll need to do a tailoring combine with a Silk Cord and Backpack Pattern. You must have a tailoring skill of 130 in order to attempt it. It is no-fail.

This combine results in a Silken Tapestry Satchel, an eight-slot container. Bring it back to Talwyn.

Talwyn Flamecaller says, 'So you got the tapestry satchel, did you? Good, you can begin to retrieve the final portions of the staff. I cannot tell you where exactly, but you will have to find four differently colored fragments. These fragments will circle your staff and feed it power. Think of them as the staff's own familiars. These crystal fragments only grow on the ground that has not seen footsteps for some time. The vibration in the ground is enough to destroy these delicate shards. When combined though, they will form a material harder than diamond. Once you have the four pieces, place them in your tapestry satchel along with the fluxing staff, a cohesion gem, and the two elements that you gathered previously, and then return with it to me'

You'll need to gather four Prismatic Crystals from various places:

1. Dulak - Ground spawn at -75, -877 (also drops from Treasure Sorter Neiben)
2. Timorous Deep - Ground spawn at +5613, -4228
3. Twilight Sea - Ground spawn at +4269, +1223
4. Veksar - Ground spawn can be found at the following locations.
+300, +350
-245.20, 537.26, -29.62
-14, 536 inside a little pool of water
-94, +402, -10 on the NW steps just outside of the pool

Then, head to the Plane of Innovation and kill trash mobs until you find a Cohesion Gem.


Now, combine the Cohesion Gem, four Prismatic Crystals, the Staff of Fluxing Power, the Shard of Pure Ice, and the Wisp of Pure Flame inside the satchel. This produces a Full Tapestry Satchel. Return this item to to receive your Epic 1.5.

As Talwyn removes the components from the tapestry satchel they begin to vibrate with power. They pulse quickly as they move towards each other, static flies in each direction as the pieces fuse into each other. In a final burst of magic the staff is complete. Talwyn looks it over with wise eyes before giving it to you. 'The staff of power is yours to wield. If you are up to the task I can set you on the final portions of what is needed to become a true avatar of Solusek.'

Receive Staff of Prismatic Power, the Wizard Epic 1.5.

Need logs of all dialogues (many of these are transcriptions). Reward: Staff of Prismatic Power

Wizard Epic 2.0: Staff of Phenomenal Power (Normal): If you have the Staff of Prismatic Power (epic 1.5), find Talwyn Flamecaller, a High Elf, at location +2182, -1042, +332 in the Lavastorm Mountains.

You say, 'Hail, Talwyn Flamecaller'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'The power of the wizard courses through your veins thoroughly, ever in search of the opportunity to harness even more power. You have created a staff of immense power, yet even in its glory, is limited. To unleash the full potential of this weapon will be a large undertaking of its own. You must obtain a globe of pure discordant energy and return it to me. Look for assistance from the Plane of Discord from Grathnok Gilforgan. I know not where this being may be, but I do know that once you find him, he will be willing to assist you in finding the globe you seek.'

Locate Grathnok Gilforgan in Dranik's Scar at location -460, 164.

You say, 'I need a globe of pure discordant energy.'

Grathnok Gilforgan says 'I know about the globes of which you speak and perhaps may even be able to aid you in obtaining one. First, though, I have to ask a favor of you. My people have suffered tireless ages here in Discord, protecting the portal. If we lose our hold on the portal the armies of discord would be able to overrun our home world, much like what has started to happen on your home world of Norrath.'

You say, 'Lose your hold?'

Grathnok Gilforgan says 'It is still too early to tell. . . We are well established here, but the constant attacks and dreary landscape really take their toll on young minds. Adding to that, when an attack is successful it bears heavy in the minds of my people. In a recent attack, a surprise raid upon our encampments, the precious Intricate Horn of Galien was taken. The purpose for this atrocity is as of yet unknown, however this item holds great meaning to us and the favor I ask is simply to return this sacred artifact to me.'

You say, 'What Intricate Horn of Galien?'

Grathnok Gilforgan says, 'This precious Artifact was placed on our largest tower, where its resonating voice stretched across the planes and through the mountains to rally our troops and warn us of an impending attack. The horn has tremendous sentimental value for us, as it belonged to one of the great leaders of our past. It is a horn made of the finest precious metal of our homeland, laden with runes and etchings and filled with gems and precious stones. It is a signification of our strength and perseverance of the ages and without it the morale is very low amongst our soldiers.'

Go to the Muramite Proving Grounds. You'll need to bring a raid force to take down Lightningcaller Vhalek. Once he's dead, loot the Intricate Horn of Galien. A chest can spawn with additional loot. Bring the horn back to Grathnok.

Grathnok Gilforgan says 'Your resolve and strength of will astounds me. You have returned to my people, the most sacred artifact we have on this world, and for that, you have earned my gratitude. As promised, I will give you the information that I have on the discordant globes. These globes can only be collected in one area, where the magic of discord constantly fluxes and an eerie sense of pain and anguish resides. Beware, it is an extremely dangerous area, protected by many of the Muramite Army's best and highest ranking members. Good luck to you, I hope you achieve all that you aspire.'

Your next step is to get a key to Citadel of Anguish (see quest given by Taromani). Head to the zone and kill Arch Magus Vangl, Jelvan`s Keepsake, Warden Hanvar (to spawn an Orb of Discordant Energy), or Overlord Mata Muram, then loot a Globe of Discordant Energy and bring it to Talwyn Flamecaller.

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'To obtain this globe was no trivial task, yet you have prevailed! Your staff is nearly complete now, you have only two final tasks remaining.', he says as he begins to murmur a brief incantation. Without warning, the orb splits into two equal halves and are then given to you. 'They will infuse your staff with one of the most useful powers of a wizard; teleportation.'

You say 'What final tasks?'

Talwyn Flamecaller says 'Your first task is to take the right half of the orb to the highest point achieved by a wizards spire on Norrath. On the western prong, you will find a small tear in space. Place the orb inside this tear; it will absorb the pure essence of teleportation. The second task will take you to the highest point achieved by a wizards spire on Luclin. Find another tear in space there and absorb that essence as well. Return to me with both halves imbued with the proper essence and hand them to me, along with your staff.'

Receive two Broken Orbs of Discordant Energy.

The final steps to your Epic 2.0 are nothing compared to the rest of the quest. Head to the Dreadlands spires (not the port-in spires, but the gigantic spires next to it). Levitate up the northwest spire to a group of five glowing containers named "Spacial Distortion."

Put one of your broken orbs into a container and hit combine. This results in an Infused Orb of Discordant Energy.

Now head to the Mons Letalis spire. Again, go up the northwest spire to a container called "Spacial Distortion." Put your other broken orb inside and hit combine. This results in another Infused Orb of Discordant Energy.

Head back to where it all began - the Lavastorm Mountains. Hand the two infused orbs along with your Staff of Prismatic Power (take augments off before hand-in).


Talwyn Flamecaller says 'With these Infused Orbs, your path to becoming a soldier of Solusek's legions has been completed. You have surpassed even my expectations!' You hear Talwyn chant in low, almost inaudible tones. His hands glow bright with power as he assembles a weapon worthy of Solusek himself. 'Take this staff as a symbol of your loyalty to Solusek and weild it proudly, wizard!'

Receive your Epic 2.0, the Staff of Phenomenal Power (as well as 10 AA points). Reward: Staff of Phenomenal Power
