    This is the third task in a series of three. Upon completion of the previous task:

    You say, 'Hail, Y`ssuria the Elder'

    Y`ssuria the Elder sighs with discontent and leans forward, whispering in a gruff tone, 'Have you ventured to Vergalid Mines and seen the swirling abyss? What you will find is an endless and hollow void. It holds nothing but emptiness. I have been there myself. I stared down that inky well and I can tell you that it echoes the feeling in my heart. This existence, this life, has no meaning without knowledge of the [sanctity] of the scale.'

    You have been assigned the task 'The Ecstasy of Relief'.

    Y'ssuria the Elder was impressed by the beauty of the Scale of Veeshan. So much, in fact, that she has requested that you get a closer look at the detail of the artifact. Return to Merchant Jhenner in Crescent Reach and procure another blank canvas and high quality sketching tools. Take them back to the burning pit of Ashengate and sketch the Scale of Veeshan itself. She wants you to capture every crevice, every indentation, every shadow, and every scratch. This sketch should surely suffice as a satisfactory substitute of seeing it firsthand.

    Sketch the Scale of Veeshan in detail
    Deliver the completed sketch to Y`ssuria the Elder

    Merchant Jhenner, who is located at -1405, -1560, 34, sells a Blank Canvas and High Quality Sketching Tools. Once you make your way to the scale of Veeshan (end of the north wing of Ashengate), click on the sketching tools to produce Sketch of the Scale of Veeshan.

    Give the sketch to Y`ssuria. Completion of this task yields a character flag as well as a cloak:

    Your task 'The Ecstasy of Relief' has been updated.
    You have received a character flag!
    You have completely assuaged Y`ssuria's fears.
    Your faction standing with Infiltrators and Traitors of Ashengate got better.
    You gain experience!!

    Y`ssuria the Elder sighs, 'Ah, yes. This is very nice, thank you for all your efforts on my behalf. Hopefully this sketch will assuage my desires for a time.

    You have successfully been granted your reward for: The Ecstasy of Relief

    This is any easy SoS rogue solo. On the edge of the overlook, you are out of mob aggro range (you do become unhid when you use the sketching tools), but no SoS seeing mobs are on the way that Ive seen.

    Does anyone at all know what the character flag is for? You know, like what it does for you later at whatever event, etc?? I haven't seen anything about it and im curious. Thanks in advance.

    Yeah necro soloable. DA's and FD's and get to the top of either the right or left pillar where you sketch. Float to the edge and down, i sketched with no aggro.

    This is the text included within the task box:
    (Should be the last thing needed to update quest stuff, I see everything else is already here.)

    Y'ssuria the Elder was impressed by the beauty of the Scale of Veeshan. So much, in fact, that she has requested that you get a closer look at the detail of the artifact. Return to Merchant Jhenner in Crescent Reach and procure another blank canvas and high quality sketching tools. Take them back to the burning pit of Ashengate and sketch the Scale of Veeshan itself. She wants you to capture every crevice, every indentation, every shadow, and every scratch. This sketch should surely suffice as a satisfactory substitute of seeing it firsthand.

    (Say that last sentence 3 times fast, I dare you.)

    This quest is Rogue Soloable, as completed by me on Cazic-Thule server, on 3/18/07.

    But I would imagine it would not be long before they nerf this too.

    Also, each time you complete a quest in the series it gives 5% reg xp at level 72. I do not know about aa xp, but I would imagine at least 20% or more.

    This whole quest is soloable, with the right skills and technique.

    As a necro I was able to make it all the way to the scale using a combination of invulnerable runs and feign death. After the first hallway that is full of stationary mobs the rest of the path to the scale room is blocked only by wandering mobs. It is possible to run to the rest of the way letting them path out of your way and working your way forward.

    Once in the scale room I ran up the middle diagonal pillar. I had to kite a statue out of the way though then run up the pillar and fd. Once at the top of the diagonal pillar it is possible to float over to the very tip of the ledge that looks onto the scale. nothing will agro you if you stay on the very tip.

    For any class that wants to do this but doesn't have FD or invulnerable it would be possible to get a necro friend to help you. They can drag a corpse of yours all the way to the ledge and then rez you there so you can complete. The quest. You could even bind yourself in Crescent Reach so that you can quickly update the quests and get the second canvas.

    Anyways, I hope this helps somebody.

    Some tricks for the aspiring Necro explorer:

    You can bind yourself in Direwind in front of the Ashengate zone line. Bring along a big stack of tiny coffins and Essence Emeralds. Split it into two stacks of the same size. Keep one of the stacks in a top level inventory spot. The first time you enter Ashengate, when you die you can just run back across the zone line and use your AA to summon your corpse. Loot each item individually but don't loot one stack of coffins (the one that was ine top level slot). You now have your EEs so rez the corpse and leave it lieing there. The next time you die, you can loot the stack of coffins, summon your corpse, rinse and repeat. This made it easy to do the Wanderlust quest. After doing that quest, The Sanctity of the Scale seemed trivial (I didn't die once).

    Use both Harmshield and QVoX to get to the scale. Start in the middle of the entry room (there is no agro if you stand in the middle). Make sure you have DMV levitation up. Cast QVoX and run down the north hallway. When you get to the big room with the left turn, there are hardly any mobs there. Clicked off QVoX, run to the back wall (straight out from the tunnel), stop and click Harmshield. Make sure you come to a complete stop before casting Harmshield so you don't get a fatal interrupt (that's quite a crowd following you). Then just complete the run to the scale. Just run right off the edge and (with levitation) head towards the rear of the cave at the right (or the big rock in the middle works too) feign death and wait to lose agro.

    When you lose agro, run to the big rock beneath the shield and levitate up it (run up any forward slanting surface). When you reach the top, run around to the front of the scale and then leviate up as high as you can. From there you can reach the ledge where you need to make the sketch. You can stand on that ledge without getting any agro. You can now sketch the scale in safety.

    Should second that point about the lava. Was sitting on the same ledge and used Ctrl + S to stand up. I fell through the ledge into the lava - a quick death and had to summon my corpse as no-one could get close to it without falling into the lava.
    a little more detail

    Basically to go to the exact same spot you updated the previous quest on (the furthest point in the north wing of Ashengate -- right on to the tip of the precipice) with a blank canvas and a set of high quality sketching tools. Click the HQ tools (I think it has to be in your primary slot). It takes about three minutes (much longer than the previous quest) and your blank canvas will update into an item you can return to Y'ssuria.
