Prerequisites: Binkl Dirkwafer - Get Off My Lawn | Korah Kai the Gardener - The More Things Change

This quest starts with Korah Kai in Umbral Plains. She can be found via the find tool CTRL F.

You say, 'Hail, Korah Kai the Gardener'

Korah Kai the Gardener says, 'Oh, hey. I did some research on the items you sent earlier, and I think we're going to need to discuss this with someone a bit more in-tune with the spirit world. Are you [interested] in doing more for me?'

You say, 'I'm interested in doing some more.'

You have been assigned the task 'The More They Stay the Same'.

Korah Kai the Gardener says, 'Thanks so much. I really, really appreciate it. So, I need you to talk to King [Vah Kerrath].'

You say, 'Isn't King Vah Kerrath dead?'

Korah Kai the Gardener frowns and her demeanor turns quite serious. 'Why yes, King Vah Kerrath is dead and, daresay, cursed. However, he has the ear of the Whisperlings, and may be able to give more information as to the current situation with the shadow corruption. You can find him west of here. Oh, and hey...' Her voice goes soft. 'I have a personal favor to ask, as well. If you find anything else you think may be of interest to me, please let me know.'



  • 1. Speak with the remains of Vah Kerrath 0/1 (Umbral Plains)

    You say, 'Hail, Remains of Vah Kerrath'

    Remains of Vah Kerrath says, 'Fleshy one, why is it you visit one damned as I? What is it you [seek] from someone with nothing left to give?'

    You say, 'I seek knowledge from the spirits.'

    an ancient whisperling says, 'The fleshling here works with the fleshling shaman. It is good for you to be here. Tell the bone man what you [found].'

    You say, 'I found that the shadow corruption is spreading at an alarming rate.'

    Remains of Vah Kerrath says, 'Interesting.' He lowers his head and falls into a dead, unmoving silence. The moment is long and tedious, but he soon speaks once more. 'I ask that you [do something] for me.'

    You say, 'I can do something for you.'

    Remains of Vah Kerrath says, 'Many years ago, I requested assistance of adventurers like you to help release the Elysian spirits locked to this cursed soil, and the whisperlings took them into their realm of spirits. I ask that you help to release the Vah Shir adventuring party that travelled with me. Please, they suffer so and their bones have begun to lose their senses. Free three from their bodies and bring each skull back to me. I am trapped in this realm, but they do not have to be.'

  • 2. Collect some skulls of Fallen Vah Shir soldiers 0/3 (Umbral Plains)
  • 3. Search the soldiers for anything else of value 0/1 (Umbral Plains

    Fallen Vah Shir Skull and Letter to Kedra and Karra Kai drop off fallen soldiers.

  • 4. Bring three skulls back to the remains of Vah Kerrath 0/3 (Umbral Plains)

    Remains of Vah Kerrath says, 'My friend, thank you for your service.'
    Remains of Vah Kerrath says, 'My friend, thank you for your service.'
    Remains of Vah Kerrath says, 'My friend, thank you for your service.'

  • 5. Check in with Vah Kerrath 0/1 (Umbral Plains)

    You say, 'Hail, Remains of Vah Kerrath'

    Remains of Vah Kerrath says, 'The shadow essence you earlier described is thick on these skulls. I can feel their torment. Please, fleshy mortal. I entrust my subjects to you once more. Find a way to purify them and release them from this pain.'

    You have been given: Bag of Fallen Vah Shir Skulls

  • 6. Deliver the letter to the Kais to Korah Kai 0/1 (Umbral Plains)

    Korah Kai the Gardener says, 'This... this...' Her eyes hurriedly scan over the letter. 'This is what I needed! This proves Loda Kai's innocence! Where did you find this? Nevermind, we have it now. I will cherish this, and once I'm done here, I'll take it to my uncle and mother. Our family honor will be restored! Thank you! Thank you from the deepest parts of my spirit.'

  • 7. Update Korah Kai with what you found out from Vah Kerrath 0/1 (Umbral Plains)

    You say, 'Hail, Korah Kai the Gardener'

    Korah Kai the Gardener says, 'So you come resolving one long unresolved issue and bring forth another. Well, let's see what we can do, eh? This magic is powerful, laying claim to the spirits it touches, just as it laid claim to my uncle Loda Kai, claimed these poor souls, and taints the remnants you returned from your scouting trip. Are you [ready] for the next step?'

    You say, 'I'm ready for the next step.'

    Korah Kai the Gardener says, 'What we're going to need is some Dusksage. It's a great purifying herb, and it can be found growing sparsely in the northwest of the plains. From there, you'll need to take the Dusksage and fully immerse it in water with the skulls. Sadly, the only water in the area is in the new scrying pool. You may need to clear some of the shades out to get to it. You should write this down so you don't forget.'

  • 8. Gather the purifying Dusksage from the northwest (0/1 (Umbral Plains)
    Korah Kai has requested a bit of Duskage, a cleansing herb, to see if it helps cleanse the shadow permeating the Vah Shir skulls.


    You can locate the Dusksage in the NW of the zone at /loc +1376, +1363, +90 -- it looks like a small green clump of leaves.

  • 9. Clear the area around the scrying pool by killing shades 0/4 (Umbral Plains)
  • 10. Fully immerse the Dusksage and skulls in the scrying pool 0/1 (Umbral Plains)

    With the Dusksage collected, head to the center of the Umbral Plains, to the large scrying pool, and sit in the pool with the Duskage and bags of skulls to try to purify them of the shadow. There's many shades about, so clearing them out will ensure your safety while submerging them.


  • 11. Return the newly purified skulls to Vah Kerrath0/1 (Umbral Plains)
    Now that the skulls are purified, return them to Vah Kerrath.


    Remains of Vah Kerrath says, 'My subjects, forgive me. Suffer no more and join the spirits in rest.'

  • 12. Check in with Vah Kerrath 0/1 (Umbral Plains)
    Check in with Vah Kerrath to see if he needs anything else.


    You say, 'Hail, Remains of Vah Kerrath'

    an ancient whisperling says, 'The bone man is in mourning, but do know that the spirits are safe in our realm, fleshling. The whisperlings appreciate the warning you have shared. Please let the shaman know that we have received the message.'

    13. Inform Korah Kai of what you've found 0/1 (Umbral Plains)
    Let Korah Kai know the results of the cleansing.


    You say, 'Hail, Korah Kai the Gardener'

    Korah Kai the Gardener says, 'That did it! Oh, I'm so relieved; you have no idea! Unfortunately there's not enough Dusksage to take care of the full taint of the shadow corruption, but we'll be able to use it on a case by case basis to help control the spread. Thank you for your help.'

    Korah Kai is now armed with the information she needs to continue her studies.
