    This task begins with Gorenaire in the Field of Scale.

    You say, 'Hail, Gorenaire'

    Gorenaire growls. A deep, chill breath flows over you. 'What is it you need, little one? You are not likely a messenger from one of my [kin], of that I am certain. If you are here to [waste my time], then don't bother. My time has already been wasted.'

    You say, 'Your kin?'

    Gorenaire says 'The Ring of Scale fights all over Kunark to rid this place of these ridiculous Iksar. They claim offense by the Ring of Scale in order to justify attacking us. They hope that we will accept such an attack as some sort of honorable revenge. They are fools. By now Hoshkar and the others have routed them from their holdings and we will soon end this war and the Sebilisian empire with it.'

    You say, 'I am not here to waste your time...'

    Gorenaire says 'We fight defensively here. It wastes my time and power. I alone could lay waste to their city. Jaled'Dar is too cautious. Certainly we all accept that the loss of any of our kin is worth preventing, but his path leads only to more death. A swift, brutal [attack] on their strongholds would end this now, and we would lose little. I would lead such an assault, and in my wake, none would remain. The time wasted [gathering information] is time lost.'

    You say, 'Gathering information?'

    Gorenaire says 'We have been busy enough, I suppose. But pulling the minds out of Iksar and their servants is only moderately entertaining. At least we were recently able to, how shall I say this, probe the mind if one of the Iksar skeletons that attended to one of their field commanders. While the undead was thoroughly destroyed, we did glean a few small bits of information. It knew that there were agents of the Imperial black guard in the Kaesora library, traveling there in disguise. These troops are elusive and dangerous, and if they seek something in that library, we need to know what it is. Will you [seek] these black guards out and see if you can discover what it is they are doing? Or perhaps you are just too weak for such a task, hmm?'

    You say, 'I'll seek them out'

    Gorenaire says 'Well then, get moving. I'm tired of looking at you.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Dark Sentry'.

    Gorenaire explains to you that she has 'extracted' some information from a skeletal soldier attached to one of the Sebilisian field commanders. As is typical, the skeleton overheard things that no living soldier would have been allowed to hear. That information hinted that there were agents of the secret Imperial guard in disguise in the Kaesora library wing. Gorenaire wants you to find out why Ganak has his special troops spying on his own, trusted servants.

    Discover what the blackguard agents are doing in the Kaesora library 0/1 (Kaesora Library)

    Kill mobs in Kaesora Library until one turns into a dark sentry when it dies (confirmed to work: "an imperial sentry"; "a dark ritualist"). People have reported success at this step at the zone-in as well as in the library area in the southwest part of the zone. When one turns, you'll see:

    a dark sentry says, 'So, you have discovered me. You'll regret that.'

    This mob is a bit more difficult than standard trash mobs. Loot a thin notebook from its corpse.

    Deliver 1 Thin Notebook to Gorenaire 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Find a signet ring that will release the magic protecting the book 0/1 (ALL)

    Go to just outside Kurn's Tower and kill mobs until you find an Imperial Ring of Office. You must right click the ring in order to receive the update. This is the only part of the quest that is prelootable.

    Find the evidence mentioned in the notebook 0/1 (Kaesora Library)

    Go back to Kaesora Library, kill "a librarian" and loot Dark Notations. The drop rate is very common.

    Deliver 1 Thin Notebook to Gorenaire 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Deliver 1 Dark Notations to Gorenaire 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    It seems unlikely that a dragon, especially one of Gorenaire's stature and power, would ever allow himself to be seen as grateful to one as small and, as he puts it, tasty as you, but you are certain that he was pleased with the results you achieved.
    Your faction standing with Tynoc, Herald of Scale could not possibly get any better.
    You have successfully been granted your reward for: Dark Sentry

    I think it's worth noting that it seems that only the imperial sentry near the library area in the southwest of the zone will change to dark sentry. There are lots of imperial sentry mobs around the larger pit area to the east. I killed those for hours with none turning to dark sentry. 2 kills near the library and got the dark sentry. This experience repeated 3 times for 3 different toons, so it seems to be more than just coincidence.

    I got a Dark Sentry after 4-5 kills at zone-in.

    For the librarian, I killed one in the SW of the zone. There are two rooms with librarians. In the rightmost one, you can get the librarian plus only one add.

    I killed everything all the way down to the library itself and didn't get a Dark Sentry until then. Lots of Imperials, but took forever to get him to change into the Dark Sentry.

    Killed Two Imperial Sentrys and they turned into Dark Sentrys

    Just an FYI: if you happen to pre-loot the ring and click it, while you have the Thin Notebook looted from the Dark Sentry in your inventory, it modifies the Thin Notebook so you can no longer update the second part of the task. Guess I got a little over-zealous and tried to skip ahead too much. Back to Kaesora I go, /sigh

    I had to do this quest twice...both times the dark sentry appeared when the mob hit 85%. I was fighting Imperial Sentries at the time.

    I had to fight a guard all the way down to 10% before it became a dark sentry at full health, which also was much tougher and had more hit points. Annoying, especially with all the roamers and respawns.
    Crusaders have a better drop rate on the ring

    Crusaders in the building with the zone-in to Kaesora Library have a great drop-rate on those rings. Bring a ranger to pull with Harmonious Arrow, or have someone else who can split out the crusaders from the rest of the mobs in that room.

    First, kill an imperial sentry in Kaesora library until it turns into a dark sentry when it dies. Loot a thin notebook off the a dark sentry.

    Give the notebook to Gorenaire who will return it to you.

    Go to just outside Kurn's tower and kill mobs until you find an imperial officers ring. You must right click the ring in order to receive the update. This is the only part of the quest that is prelootable.

    Go back to Kaesora library and kill a librarian and loot Dark Notations. Every librarian we killed dropped this.

    Give the notebook and dark notations to Gorenaire.

    The imperial sentry does not turn into the dark sentry when it dies, but does so at some point after being damaged, like the unmasked changelings in old hot zones.

    I got one to appear on my third sentry at zin.

    Correct. When it changes into the dark sentry it will say "So, you have discovered me. You'll regret that."
