The Beginning:

  • The Prophecy of Ro expansion was announced on January 3, 2006, and went live on February 21, 2006. The initial expansion announcement may be found here. The initial patch message may be found here.

What's Going On:

  • Mayong Mistmoore's release into godhood has turned the gods' focus back to the mortal realm. Druzzil Ro foresaw the devastation of the world and in turn beckoned all mortals to her Plane of Magic, a plane ruled by her creations, the scrykin.

    The scrykin have a problem, though. As they age, they succumb to madness, paranoia, and instability -- something which led the first born scrykin, Daosheen, to lock himself in the tower of Skylance. As the elder scrykin continued to deteriorate mentally, the dragons of Relic assumed more political power. They, however, are at odds one another as they each want control of the magical channeling platforms built within the city. And so it is the second born scrykin, Porthio, who has assumed the role as governor of Relic while at the same time remaining focused on his studies.

    In addition to the Plane of Magic portal, another passage appeared in Freeport, one which leads to the home of Sullon Zek -- the Plane of Rage. It is said that when one mortal kills another in a fit of rage, the killer is sent here when they die. The Seething Wall which lines the plane covers the killer in an all-consuming darkness. They feel cold, leathery flesh, and the pinch and scrape of armor against their bodies, crushing them from every direction. With the stench of death in the cold air and the calling of Sullon Zek's rage, they soon feel an urgent need to destroy and vent their unrelenting rage, as well as a desire to fight for Sullon Zek and earn her respect. Sullon Zek remains in the tower of Razorthorn within her plane's stronghold, alongside those who are most dedicated to increasing their rage and learning how to focus it.

    Another magical passage formed in the Desert of Ro. Druzzil Ro wasn't the only god to take action after Mayong Mistmoore was released into godhood. Tunare, too, saw the need to beckon mortals to her realm. Using rains from Karana and magic from Druzzil Ro, a sandstorm was created in the desert, revealing the ruins of the Elddar city Takish-Hiz. Also created was a portal into the past and the glory of the Elddar Forest and great elven city as it stood in the Age of Monuments, before Solusek Ro created the Serpent's Spine Mountains and turned the forest into a desert.

    There is one god who has already fallen to the corruption of Mayong Mistmoore. She is Ayonae Ro, the ruler of the once-beautiful Plane of Music, a place which has turned into a dark, bloody cesspool of terror and rage while Ayonae remains holed up in the plane's tower of Deathknell.

    The very power of mortals that the gods despised for unleashing Mayong Mistmoore into godhood is being called upon to save them and the world.

Progression Through the Prophecy of Ro

  • For access to Razorthorn, Tower of Sullon Zek (quest outline here):
    • Note: If you are in the same task as someone doing the Enraged Flesh Armor turn-ins to Maelin for the "Become the Vessel" task, you may bypass all steps up to that point and simply say "Enraged Flesh Charm" to Maelin to receive the Razorthorn key.
    • Complete the Saga Skins task which opens up after looting a skin from an NPC in The Devastation.
    • Complete the Preparing Your New Skins task from Grand Librarian Maelin.
    • Complete the Become the Vessel task from Grand Librarian Maelin.
      • After someone in the task delivers their five Enraged Flesh Armor pieces to Maelin, everyone in the task receives a flag.
    • After receiving the flag, go to Maelin and say "Enraged Flesh Charm" to Maelin.
    • Receive Enraged Flesh Charm...
      • With this item, you can request the "Samples of Corruption" task.
      • This item is optional for Theater of Blood access, but a requirement for Deathknell access.
  • For access to the Theater of Blood (quest outline here):
    • The seven tasks here may be done out of order. The NPC hails and turn-ins cannot. To be safe, follow all NPC dialogue - no short cuts!
    • Hail Arch Mage Galsin at location -180, +1465 in Arcstone (inside a tent).
    • To Galsin, say "What is the Plane of Music", "What information", and "What new direction".

    • Go to Oathmir the Outcast at the zone-in of The Devastation and say "Tell me about the chime."
    • Give the Silent Harmonic Charm to Oathmir. He will tell you about corruption in Razorthorn and give you the Silent Harmonic Chime back.
    • To Oathmir, say "I can find out" to request the Samples of Corruption task.
      • You must have an Enraged Flesh Charm to request this. If you have not completed the Become the Vessel task, you will need to group with someone who has, and have them request the Samples of Corruption task.
    • Complete the Samples of Corruption task which takes place in the tower of Razorthorn.
    • Give the Silent Harmonic Charm to Oathmir the Outcast to receive a Twisted Chime.
    • Hail Arch Mage Galsin and give him the Twisted Chime to receive a Twisted Chime (this is a different item).

    • Give the Twisted Harmonic Chime (with no effect) to Arch Mage Galsin in Arcstone to receive the final Twisted Harmonic Chime.

  • For access to Deathknell, Tower of Dissonance (quest outline here):
    • Complete these steps in their order. (It is possible you may be able to do so out of order by hailing various NPCs. It is not known for sure, so do this in order to be safe.)
    • You must have the Twisted Harmonic Chime and Enraged Flesh Charm in order to be granted Deathknell access.

    • To him, say "proposition", then "I am interested" to receive a Shard of Mana.

    • To the Shrine, say "What task", "What enchantment", "What steps", and "I am willing".
    • Participate in a successful raid on Sullon Zek in this task given by Oathmir the Outcast, which takes place in Razorthorn, the Tower of Sullon Zek.
      • In order to request the Sullon Zek raid, you must collect the three Legendary Berserker Bones and, with your Enraged Flesh Charm in your posession, give the bones to Grand Librarian Maelin. Once you do that, Oathmir will grant you the raid.

    • Upon the deaths of Suchun and his minions, your Glowing Shard of Mana will become a Black Shard of Mana.
    • Go to the Shrine of Druzzil Ro and hail it. (Follow any dialogue to its end -- you will be directed to go to the Theater of Blood. You likely need to give the Black Shard of Mana to the Shrine of Druzzil Ro).
    • Find Eodue the Pure, a fairy wandering the zone-in of the Theater of Blood.
    • Hail her, ask her about her six companions by name, then ask "What curse" and "What source".
    • Loot an Inspiration off any one of the six raid encounters in the Theater of Blood: Gnarlibramble, Maestro Tan`lor, Valik the Cruel, Vasella Fireblood, Anastasia the Thought Drinker, or Mad Mary-Anne. (They each drop three at a time.)

Quests to do While Progressing Through the Prophecy of Ro

  • Tradeskill Tests (Freeport)
    • Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs at location +600, +135 in West Freeport offers evolving tradeskill trophy tasks based on your skill level in various tradeskills: Beginner (50-99), Apprentice (100-149), Freshman (150-199), Journeyman (200-249), Expert (250-299), and Master (300). The tasks are listed on this page.
  • Freeport Citizens Quests
  • Tree Heaven
    • How is your Plane of Growth faction? If it is intact, check out this task offered by Speaker Grayleaf at location +880, -305 in the Elddar Forest. A simple delivery nets you a cloak (for casters) or belt (for melees) with 165-175hp/mana/end.
  • Exploring Arcstone (Arcstone)
    • Spirit Hunter Azmaro at location -280, +1670 in Arcstone offers this unrepeatable task which yields around 75% of an AA in experience for ~10 minutes of work, assuming you can handle yourself sneaking around Arcstone.
  • Challenge of the Circle (Relic)
    • The Arena Overseer at location +160, +550 in Relic offers this groupable task for which casters receive a 205hp/215mana necklace and melees receive 190hp/200mana/200end veil.
  • Hero's Challenge (Sverag)
    • Upon killing an NPC in Sverag, Stronghold of Rage, you may be prompted for this task, which takes place in Razorthorn and can occasionally yield (on hard) some decent augmentations.
  • The Great Caiman Issue
    • If you found yourself running from Lockjaw in your early days, you'll probably appreciate this task from Dimbwicket Middifoodle at location +2485, -2660 in South Ro. It is a low-level faction task, but recommended for everyone at least once. We won't spoil the ending here.
  • Many more missions were added with the Prophecy of Ro expansion. The list here is made up of some of the highlights. A complete list of PoR quests and tasks listed in the Allakhazam database can be found here (this is a premium-only link).
