For an overview of progression, see quest entries for Norrath's Keepers and the Dark Reign.

This is a non-progression task. It is a group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Daleynn Spiritshadow (click for map image) in the Dark Reign camp of the Lavastorm Mountains.

Pre-requisites for requesting:
- Minimum level 59
- Minimum "apprehensive" faction with Dark Reign

Hail her to get a quest selection window pop-up.

You have been assigned the task 'Simple Task'.

I have for you a simple task. Bring me a flower from a garden. Sure, that garden is on a magically floating island. Yes, that island is the lair of an ancient dragon of trendous power. Of course minions will be everywhere, but all we want is one plant. How hard can that be? There is a small tree that grows a rose they call the Dark Lady. They say it has amazing powers. They also say that it is difficult to transport alive. You need to figure out how to do that. They say that if you don't transport it in the right container with the proper fertilizer it will die. No, I don't really know who "they" are, just bring me that rose alive.

Note: This group mission scales to your group's level. The highest is 68+, outlined here.

Touch the portal to the Thundercrest Isles 0/1 (The Broodlands)

The entrance will be marked on your compass (entered in the northwestern part of the Broodlands).

Explore the Garden of Yar'Lir on a western island 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Find a way to keep the Dark Lady alive so that you can bring it back 0/1 (Thundercrest Isles)

Deliver one Potted Dark Lady to Daleynn Spiritshadow 0/1 (Lavastorm Mountains)

Cross the western bridge, enter the building, and make a left (south) down the hallway where you'll find "Goblin Gardener". This hits for a max ~1,800; has ~62,500 hitpoints; is stunnable; and is immune to mez. Loot an "Inscripted Pot" from its corpse (two-slot container).

Inside the garden (which is the large center room not far from the bridge), find and pick up "Dark Lady", a bright red ground spawn in the garden area. (When you are near the Dark Lady, you'll get a task update and an emote.)

At this point a timer of sorts starts. Periodically, you will see emotes like this:

The Dark Lady withers. It is only a matter of time before it dies. You know you must hurry and find a way to plant it properly.

At this time, the "Dark Lady" disappears and you get a different one on your cursor (other example types: "Sickly Dark Lady", "Wilted Dark Lady", "Withered Dark Lady"). There is no indication of how much time you have before the "Dark Lady" dies. Clear the garden and the guardians surrounding it. You will eventually see the emote:

A loud, hissing voice shouts, 'What is going on here? Someone shall answer to the Lady of the Tempest for their actions here!'

The Master Courier has spawned and will make its way to the garden. Kill it, and loot "Drake Fertilizer" from its corpse. Combine this with the "Dark Lady" in the "Inscripted Pot" to produce a "Potted Dark Lady". Take this item back to Daleynn Spiritshadow in the Lavastorm Mountains to complete the task.

Up to 55 Ebon Crystals (number varies according to group's level)
1x "Dark Reign Token" (faction turn-in item)
