This is the raid expedition involving the first instanced Frostcrypt zone. In order to request and/or participate in this task, you must have completed Fergarin's arc of group tasks and raid tasks.

It begins with Fergarin Bardon I in Valdeholm, who is located in the back room behind Wraithguard Heimgul, at +770, -780, -25.

At the end of "Speak with the King"...


Fergarin did not seem pleased with the swath of destruction you left in his city or the way you humiliated his King. He is obviously not too thrilled about the part he played in this matter, however, he would like to offer you the opportunity to [set things straight].

You say, 'I want to set things straight.'

Fergarin Bardon I says 'If you intend on setting things straight again, you will need to find a path to challenge the Shade King himself. The Wraithguard have been looking for a way to do this for a long time. They have [discovered] much, but have not been able to devise a plan to put these discoveries to use. The challanges of simply fending off the Shades and protecting the city have kept them much too busy.'

You say, 'What have they discovered?'

Fergarin Bardon I says 'As you may have noticed, the Shades have desecrated much of the crypts and raised the corpses of our dead to serve them. Those dead serve as fodder for many of their attacks and have been a constant hindrance to our efforts. We have tracked down the root of many of these problems. [Hearol] is the mastermind behind many of the attacks. He has the advantage of the Shades' strength and knowledge of our own forces and tactics.'

You say, 'Who is Hearol?'

Fergarin Bardon I says 'Hearol was once a great commander for our armies. He is widely considered to be the greatest tactician of his age, second only to the great Fridleif himself. There are few alive today who can help us keep his efforts under control. Unfortunately he is not the only problem. Without [Lorekeeper Grenwald] to assist him Hearol would soon run out of troops, but together they make an almost unstoppable force.

You say, 'Who is Lorekeeper Grenwald?'

Fergarin Bardon I says 'Grenwald has been invaluable to the shades cause. It was he who first discovered the ways of raising the dead in the crypt. Any shade or zombie who falls is delivered back to him and his acolytes to repair and revive. Grenwald has been able to supply Hearol with an almost limitless supply of soldiers. If we are to have any chance against the Shades these two must be eliminated first. I caution you though, there are some [complications] you must be aware of if you choose to undertake this endeavor.'

You say, 'What complications?'

Fergarin Bardon I says 'If you wish to slay only one of the two our danger will not be over. You must make sure both of them are destroyed before you can make an effort to confront the Shade King himself. Failing in this will surely mean the return of Hearol and Grenwald. After an assault on them they will surely redouble their efforts and cause ever more damage to our people. If you still wish to undertake this task you must venture into the ice tomb of [Frostcrypt].

You say, 'Frostcrypt?'

Fergarin Bardon I says 'Before you head into the crypt, speak with Sergeant Thavin by the entrance and tell him I sent you. He will be able to help you sneak into the crypt and avoid a good deal of the Shades' defenses. Should you succeed in there, take the tale of your victory to Commander Haesgrin. He will be able to assist you further in your fight against the Shade King.'

Wraithguard Sergeant Thavin will teleport you into the expedition. He may be found at the zone-in to the non-instanced Frostcrypt zone in Valdeholm, at -2530, +660, -490.

You say, 'Fergarin sent me.'

Wraithguard Sergeant Thavin says 'Off to face Hearol and Grenwald are you? Well, here's the easiest way in.'

Events within this expedition:

Three Brothers (aug event)
Overwhelming Numbers (aug event)
Shades of Calm (aug event)
Shadow Selves (aug event)
Hearol the Tactician
Lorekeeper Grenwald

Each event has a lockout timer of 4.5 days.

Wraithguard Leadership and Wraithguard (do you really need ally with both?),
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No. You DO need ally to Wraithguard Leadership, Wraithguard can be any level.


---------------------------------------------------------
Need opening dialogs and /loc of Fergarin Bardon I
----------------------------------------------------------

There is no opening dialogues to this, the way this quest works is it leads in from one task to the next by giving you yellow emotes at the end of completing a task, hinting at what to say to get the next one. Going with the theme of what has been updated for this whole quest line thus far, ideally we could use:

At the end of the previous task, Fergarin offered you the opportunity to [set things straight].


Fergarin's exact location: 770, -780, -25


--------------------------------------
Thavin's Location and Dialogue
--------------------------------------

Location: -2532, 662, -490

and

You say, 'Fergarin sent me.'

Wraithguard Sergeant Thavin says 'Off to face Hearol and Grenwald are you? Well, here's the easiest way in.'


-----------------------------------------

also this quest should be a related quest, since it is the quest that leads into this:

As posted below, this raid is given by Fergarin Bardon I, not Thavin. Thavin is merely the NPC who ports you into the expedition once you have gotten the dynamic zone expedition from Fergarin Bardon I

Expedition is obtained from Fergarin, "Frostcrypt" is the key word to be offered the expedition.

Once you have the expedition, you zone into it by saying "Fergarin" to Thavin.
