|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is a non-progression group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Tensia Hauden in Erudin Burning. She is found at location 80, 300, 0 (inside the port authority building next to the dock). |
There are no pre-requisites for requesting this task.
You say, 'Hail, Tensia Hauden'
Tensia Hauden says 'There is no time for pleasantries. Too many of the citizens of Erudin are missing, and I fear there may be the ring of [truth] to what the captive cultist had to say about their fate.'
You say, 'A ring of truth?'
Tensia Hauden says 'I couldn't help but overhear, as the troops were doing their interrogation, she said something about them 'ending up in the Vestibule with the other doomed prisoners'. I assume she means the vestibule by the Toxxulia Forest entrance of the city. If there are prisoners there, we must try to free them, don't you agree? This mission will require boldness and excellent timing. Will you [volunteer]?'
You say, 'I'll volunteer'
Tensia Hauden says 'It will not be easy, of course. This location may or may not be guarded, barricaded, or warded against our approach. At a time like this, we must at least make an effort. We cannot afford to leave anyone behind now. I do not relish sending people to chase down rumors, but the knowledge that there may be innocent souls left behind - abandoned to torture at the hands of the heretics or worse - will gnaw at us if we fail to act. I don't mean to usurp the authority of General Derrex, or the guildmasters, but someone must be spared from the defense of the remainder of the city to [do] this task.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Pit of All Fears'
Too many of the civilians of Erudin are still missing since the heretics invaded the city. Tensia Hauden has asked you to follow up on rumors that the heretics are using the former vestibule by the Toxxulia Forest entrance to the city as a temporary dungeon. If there is any truth to this, you are to storm the holding pen and rescue as many of the prisoners as possible.
You say, 'I'll do it'
Tensia Hauden says 'It warms my heart to see some adventurers willing to follow the example of Erud, even in these trying times. Make your way through the city, to the Toxxulia Forest exit. I've already sent Trevis Malfin ahead to look for signs of prisoners, but he can do little by himself. I don't know the condition of the teleport gems that take you into the lower part of the vestibule, perhaps Trevis can help you gain access.'
Explore the makeshift dungeon at the southern edge of Erudin Fallen 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Trevis Malfin spawns in the southernmost part of the zone. Tell him "ready" to zone into the instance.
You say, 'Hail, Trevis Malfin'
Trevis Malfin says 'Good to see you. The makeshift prison is below us. The heretics down there guarding it are gone for awhile, but they may be back any second. If they come back, I'll have to hide. Let's get you down there. Tell me when you're [ready] to go.'
You say, 'Ready!'
Trevis Malfin says 'Very well, be careful down there, everyone seems to be in a trance of some sort.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Pit of All Fears.
Hail Yoren Sylgar 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Once in the instance, hail Yoren Sylgar to spawn the first set of mobs to be killed.
You say, 'Hail, Yoren Sylgar'
Yoren Sylgar says 'It has been a hellish existence down here. The heretics literally threw us down here. I don't know how long we've been here, it can't have been more than a couple days and yet it's felt like an eternity; I've watched these people starve and die before my very eyes, begging and pleading for someone to do something. Nothing we tried ever seemed to work! Over there, Altherod and a few of the others made some sort of pact against the rest of us, since then we've been dying faster. It seems like one of my group has disappeared every time I doze off; as a result I am afraid to sleep. We must get out of here, yet it is hopeless.'
Hailing him triggers the spawn of the first set of mobs to kill (12 prisoners + Altherod the Ghoul).
Task Window Says: It appears the rescue effort will be hampered by an emergent need to defend yourselves against the prisoners, some of whom have survived better than others down here. Gather evidence that at least one of the prisoners has resorted to cannibalism.

Loot a partially-eaten hand from Alterod the Ghoul 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Deliver a partially-eaten hand to Yoren Sylgar 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Yoren Sylgar says 'So, Altherod and his cronies were. . . devouring the bodies of the victims? How disgusting, and for an Erudite to stoop so low, illustrates the danger we are in. Madness is taking every one of us. Fear drives the madness; even now the gnawing dread and terror of dying horribly in this place tear at my sanity. Oh, it seems the Heretics have gotten wise to your adventure. . .'
Turning in the hand triggers the spawn of a second set of mobs to kill (5 heretics + Anchar Synov).

Deliver a strange-smelling spider egg sac to Yoran Sylgar 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Yoren Sylgar says 'Ah, Anchar apparently didn't have time to destroy the spider egg sac he confiscated from me. Anchar Synov, witless heretic thug... now a witless DEAD heretic thug, ha-ha, hah! What do I want with these spider eggs? Well, for one thing, their smell will protect me from the one who laid them. I have been down here so long, I deserve to live at least a little while longer. Longer than you. Remember, by coming here, you asked for this. You asked for this!'
This turn-in triggers the spawn of Hulkenfang at the portal stone.

You say, 'Hail, Seveth Dinallin'
Seveth Dinallin says 'I am pleased you survived Hulkenfang's onslaught. I wish Yoren could have held out awhile longer before descending into madness. Our nightmares take shape in this place. Is the city around us real? Are we all just losing our minds simultaneously? Or is there some power behind it all? At any rate, I am too far gone to deserve a rescue. Coming here, you have only fallen deeper into the web of nightmares that surrounds us. Take this for your efforts and escape while you can.'
Claim your reward from the blackened chest 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
