This is the second of five tasks in a series. (At one point in this series you receive the Ashengate Seal, an item which allows you to bypass the golems guarding the gate to Ashengate.)

Scout Zryan gives this task upon completion of the Gray Legion task...

Zryan says, 'Well done. You are now ready for the main attack on the [approach].'

You say, 'What approach?'

Scout Zryan says 'When outnumbered, the superior warrior stalks with patience and strikes only when the time is right. Here is what must be done. . .'

Two giant statues stand guard outside Ashengate Temple. The only past them is with the Ashengate Seal, an artifact which has the power to temporarily disable the guardians. Our spies report that the Ashengate Seal was broken into four pieces and distributed to the fortified outposts positioned along the approach. You will have to find all four pieces to reassemble the Ashengate Seal...

Outpost One - Zerra'lok
The first outpost waits just beyond the first bridge along the approach. It is commanded by Zerra'lok, one of Dyn'leth's senior weapon masters.

Outpost Two - Renagarhn
Outpost two waits high along the cliff lines. It is commanded by Renagarhn, a giant mercenary who betrayed his kin and left his homeland to fight for Dyn'leth.

Outpost Three - Bollbaru
Outpost three lies further up the approach near the last bridge. It is commanded by Bollbaru, a witch of infamous power.

Outpost Four - Gatekeeper Kor
The final checkpoint lies at the walls of Ashengate Temple. Gatekeeper Kor stands with the final piece of the Ashengate Seal.



Deliver the Seal of Outpost One to Scout Zryan 0/1 Direwind Cliffs)

Deliver the Seal of Outpost Two to Scout Zryan 0/1 Direwind Cliffs)

Deliver the Seal of Outpost Three to Scout Zryan 0/1 Direwind Cliffs)

Deliver the Seal of Outpost Four to Scout Zryan 0/1 Direwind Cliffs)



Blademaster Zerralok hits for a max ~3,500 and may AE rampage for mitigated damage. He is snareable, rootable, slowable, and flurries. He is NOT stunnable, mezzable, and does not enrage. He is capable of one-rounding for upwards of ~14,000 on a tank with 3000 AC.

Renagarhn the Exile hits for a max ~3,500 and may AE rampage for mitigated damage. He flurries, enrages, and procs the spell Wallup, a -200CR stun. He may mem blur or have aggro issues at around 30%.

Bollbaru the Witch is permanently rooted and spawns four waves of 3 skeleton pets, at 75%, 50%, 25% and 15%. These are called "a summoned skeleton" and hit for a max ~2,000 and AE rampage. Any that surviving skeletons will die when Bollbaru does.

Gatekeeper Kor hits for a max ~3,500; single-target rampages; AE rampages; flurries; and enrages. That's it.

Hand the Outpost pieces in to Zryan to finish and receive text to get the next task.

Zryan assembles the Ashengate Seal and hands it back to you. 'Well done,' he says, 'With this, you should be able to bypass the statue guardians outside of Ashengate. My father Captain Zheren, will be most impressed to learn that you have defeated Dyn`leth's forces along the [approach].'

Your faction standing with Crusade of the Scale got better.
Your faction standing with Forces of Dyn'leth got worse.
Your faction standing with Circle of the Crystalwing got better.
You gain experience!!

Quest says solo level 75-85 yah right, come on, enough with the undercons, how does a mob that con lower than the one's next to it, but is 100% harder. I think the whole quest line in Direwind sucks, coming from Sunderock where I was able to complete all of the progression without any problem, move into Dierwind to continue said quests and run right into a brick wall, soe way of keeping you from progressing, back to mindless grinding at least I can make progress that way.
Seal MUST be in a bag slot

Once you get the seal and are ready to use it, you cannot right click the seal when it's in a bag unless you have the VoA expansion.

You must put the seal into a bag slot first, then you can right click to cast it.

Although the item says "any slot," a bag slot is the ONLY slot it will go into, and it must be equipt to use.

Duo'd her with ranger and shammy box
First got her to about 75% then adds poped, had shaman slow them all then i poped sureshot and then did shaman epic, burnt witch down, as well as adds. Adds didnt last threw 2 arcs but by the time i killed the first wave, second wave poped and she was at 50% slowed all the adds, all the while healing, then killed them adds then at 25 % got the third wave, sureshot ran out so took a lil bit longer with all the adds. till about 10% ran oom on ranger then at about 2% the outpost guards started poping then killed her then the guards, was a tough and long fight when sureshot wore off. ! She summons and didnt hit too hard

We got our group demolished just starting the first OutPost. We managed the first Guard fairly well but when Guard Zerra'lok came he just wiped us out! OK it this supposed to be a raid encounter. Does the entire group get a piece of the Seal when each Outpost is defeated? AND does anyone have any tactics for fighting the outposts?

With a group of 5 including 2 undergeared twinks I killed 1, 2, 4 with relative ease.
There was one Anguish tank but with 19k HP and serious AA.

Without offtank or CC this group can't handle adds well so I haven't attempted 3, yet.

I would have to say these are raid encounters. We had 2 tanks each with 15k hp and 2 healers along with 2 rangers with anguish gear and it was just a total embarassment. Now that I have the gray legion task complete I have no idea whatsoever how I'm going to get the nameds

Permarooted, burned her and mezzed adds. Seemed like they'd die almost immediately after she died and they lost mez. Got about 5 kills of skeles at the same time after she died.

------------------------------------------
Gatekeeper Kor flurries, rampages, and enrages. Hits around 3k max, 2k on a tank. Nothing else noticeablely special about him. Factions affected:

Forces of Dyn`leth got worse.
Direwind Gnolls got worse.
Crusade of the Scale got better.
Circle of the Crystalwing got better.
