You can get this group mission by talking to Spiritist Nathra about mid zone around the pool at /waypoint -89, -193, -188. They are on the find tool CTRL F.

We need all dialogue, details to each step and task window text for each step.

You say, 'Hail, Spiritist Nathra'

Spiritist Nathra says, 'Hail and well met. It's good that you've reached out to me, for I'm quite [troubled].'

You say, 'Why are you troubled?'

Spiritist Nathra says, 'The spirits are crying out to me. One of their [whisperling] kin has been stolen, and they fear for the safety of the little spirit, especially when he is reported to be in the hands on the [poachers]. Would you be able to [help]?'

You say, 'What is a whisperling?'

Spiritist Nathra says, 'Whisperlings are the spirits who bring our night visions, our dreams. You could say that they "whisper" to us in our sleep. They do not persist in our world by default, but only if they are attached by a spirit anchor, which keeps them in our physical realm. It doesn't hurt the whisperling, but it needs a strong anchor to maintain its hold.'

You say, 'What poachers do you mean?'

Spiritist Nathra says, 'The Loda Kai poachers in and of themselves are not directly concerning, as objects such as the whisperling's spirit anchor may be considered more for-profit than something more dangerous for the little spirit. However, it's also known that the Loda Kai are loosely allied with the [Shak Dratha]. At the very least, they have openly bartered. It's the Shak Dratha that I'm worried about. If the Loda Kai traded it over to them... I don't want to think about it.'

You say, 'What of the Shak Dratha?'

Spiritist Nathra says, 'The Shak Dratha delve into the dark arts of the spirit. Their hearts are full of shadow, whether they weave silk directly from it, or pull from it to consume a traveler's soul. If he changes hands before we can get to him, our whisperling friend may not be long for this or any world.'

You say, 'I would like to help.'

Spiritist Nathra says, 'You have no idea how much we appreciate this. I can [lead] you to the cavern shared with me, but from there, it's up to you and any adventuring companions you wish to have accompany you. I'm ready when you are.'

    I 3 boxed this with old gear and wiped repeatedly pulling the boss due to crazy pathing. The boss pops at -220 -431 so you should kill the two static mobs near there and mobs in that room during the Defeat several Shak Dratha 0/8 Shadeweaver's Thicket step.

    The boss had a lot of HP and summons a guard to assist twice.

    Reward was a 9797hp/9592mana range item.

    After zoning in:

    Bonus Loot:
    Loot Both "Khrix" & "Owl Totem" on the same toon
    Talk with Spiritist Nathra back at the zone in ( succor spot )

    Combine both "Khrix" & "Owl Totem" in the "Empty Medicine Bag" = Makes a "Spirit-filled Medicine Bag" Item
    Hand in the "Spirit-filled Medicine Bag" to Spiritist Nathra inside the instance
    the person that does the hand in Receives the "Spirit of the Lost" Item


    Final Loot Chest:
    Located at the succor spot / zone in / next to "Spiritist Nathra"
    You can task add until you open the chest at the very end
    Mission Locks when you open the last loot chest
    Then mission gives you a 6 hour lockout minus the time already spent in mission when you open the last chest
    Chest had 1 item (ranged slot)

    Mobs:
    pathing sucks
    levitate works in the zone
    Trash mobs have ~50 million HP
    Human mobs "A Loda Kai ..." = Snare-able, Root-able, Mez-able, Head-shot-able, harmony-able
    Alien mobs "A Shak Dratha ..." = Immune to snare, Root-able, Mez-able, Head-shot-able, Harmony-able
    only the named see invis
