    This solo task is the third in a series of three that will grant you access to the different islands in Al'Kabor's Nightmare (as well as lead into the group progression mission for the zone).

    This task begins with Sionachie Heartsinger who's located at the port-up to the Faydark.

    You say, 'Hail, Sionachie Heartsinger'

    Sionachie Heartsinger seems to look right through you as she speaks, 'Thubr is gone, and now Firiona Vie is [unwell]. I never thought I'd be here to see the world end like this. Al'Kabor, what happened?' With a few heavy blinks, Sionachie refocuses her attention. 'Pardon me, are you here to help? Or are you just [passing] through?

    You say, 'Unwell?'

    Sionachie Heartsinger says 'The situation could not be worse. I cannot understand Firiona's actions, and the efforts of what remains of Felwithe and Kelethin are not stopping the Crushbone orcs.' Sionachie peers at you with silent understanding. 'You are not what you seem. Others may be fooled by this clever ruse, but I sense you are not my enemy. If you are offering your [help], we could use it.''

    You say, 'I will help'

    Sionachie Heartsinger says 'Thank you. I've been warned by the Felwithe guard to stay away from Firiona. They claim she has no wish to see me. Their actions are desperate and corrupt. If they are allowed to continue on without any accountability for their actions, who knows what kind of irreparable damage they may do. I need you to lessen the Felwithe guard numbers, and retrieve any military documents you may find while doing so. Do you think you can handle this?'

    You have been assigned the task 'Faydark's Shadow'.

    Sionachie Heartsinger has asked you to speak to Firiona Vie. Firiona has refused to meet with Sionachie and has asked she be denied access to Felwithe. Sionachie has asked for your help while she takes care of the Crushbone orc assaults. Investigate the ruins of Felwithe and Kelethin and look for any documents that might shed light on Firiona's plans.

    The documents have likely been littered around Al'Kabor's Nightmare, in the ruins of Kelethin and Felwithe, or they may still be in the hand of those that guard what's left of Felwithe.

    Investigate the ruins of Felwithe 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Investigate the ruins of Kelethin 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    These steps update as you approach the ruins of Felwithe and, to the west, the ruins of Kelethin.

    Collect Felwithe Military Documents and deliver them to Sionachie 0/5 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Military documents drop from the high elves in the area and are also groundspawns. Known locations (in the ruins behind the main area of Felwithe):

    In-game /loc:
    -265, -5080, -334
    -330, -5070, -333
    -550, -5120, -333
    -445, -5120, -335
    -300, -5220, -333

    For alkabormare.txt map file:
    P 5080.0000, 265.0000, -334.0000, 0, 0, 0, 2, document
    P 5070.0000, 330.0000, -333.0000, 0, 0, 0, 2, document
    P 5120.0000, 550.0000, -333.0000, 0, 0, 0, 2, document
    P 5120.0000, 445.0000, -335.0000, 0, 0, 0, 2, document
    P 5220.0000, 300.0000, -333.0000, 0, 0, 0, 2, document

    Eliminate members of the Felwithe guard 0/4 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Kill four of the high elves in and around Felwithe.

    Speak with Sionachie 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    You say, 'Hail, Sionachie Heartsinger'

    Sionachie Heartsinger looks over the documents, frowning. 'I see. Firiona is even worse off than I thought. Apparently those who hold the reigns of power in Felwithe are using her as nothing more than a figurehead. Could you do me a favor? I have a potion here that may help her regain part of her memory. When you ready, please take it and give it to her."

    Give the Memory Tonic to Firiona Vie 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Firiona Vie is found inside a building just inside the front gate of Felwithe at location -400, -5000. You may need to clear a mob or two to get to her.

    You say, 'Hail, Firiona Vie'

    Firiona Vie says 'Oh, hello there. I don't think I've seen you before. Can you tell me where I might find my friends? I have a feeling I should be doing something useful, but I've been having trouble remembering lately.'

    On handing her the potion:

    Firiona Vie looks slightly more lucid after consuming the potion. 'Sionachie, of course. Yes, I remember her. Tell her she can come speak to me. We have much to do. Something about Al'Kabor. Do I know him?' Firiona pauses. While the magical tonic helped, she is still in no condition to do much of anything.

    Speak with Sionachie 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    You say, 'Hail, Sionachie Heartsinger'

    Sionachie Heartsinger listens as you describe what happened. 'So that is that,' she says with a sigh. 'Well, I appreciate what you've done. Her slight improvement may be all I need to start making a real difference here. Maybe Felwithe will listen to me now. I am grateful for your help. If you would like to go, I can give you access to the Dreadlands where Al'Kabor is held captive. You need but ask."

    Firiona appears to have lost her grip on sanity, though you've given her enough clarity to recognize her friend. She is now a figurehead for what remains of the elven fighting force, but nothing more. Sionachie will try to help her friend. You've done all you can here. You can now go to the Dreadlands where Al'Kabor resides.

    Your faction standing with Dream Delvers got better.

    210 platinum
    Faction with Dream Delvers
    20 Dream Motes

    Note: You also gain access to the final island in the zone (Dreadlands). To get there, say "Dreadlands" to Sionachie, Dagda, or Dreezil. You can travel to any island by speaking to one of these NPCs (or to Al'Kabor on the Dreadlands island). You can also say "leave" to zone back out into the Upper Floors of the House of Thule.

    Completion of this task allows you to request the group progression mission for Al'Kabor's Nightmare (from Elard Velsorn outside the zone-in in the House of Thule's Upper Floors).

    These are very close approximations:

    First loc is -136, -4555
    Second loc is 47, 3751

    My group and I just completed this task. The front area has high elf sentries that do not see invis, the wizards are just inside the compound, and, as stated, they do see invis.

    I did not have success "creeping" around them. Instead, my group and I killed them. The high elf wizards seemed to drop the documents. I did not find any documents on any other type of high elf, but, granted, I didn't stick around and repeatedly kill them to find out either.

    Once inside the compound, past the tunnel, on the ruined side, you can pick up the ground-spawned documents invis and the high elves in the area do not see invis.

    I cleared the courtyard area of wizards, ran back to hand in the documents, ran back to the courtyard and killed one elf in FV's room. (I saw two, one on each side). Then stuck to the wall of the killed wizard and completed the hand in and ran back out before pops.

    Seems like the high elves are on a pretty short timer - I'd guess 15 minutes or so, give or take a few. The ground spawns seem to be very rapid. I collected one, killed a wizard, and then it was spawned again.

    Anyway, good luck!

    See invis

    Just so people are aware if doing this, the High Elf Wizard mobs see invis, the rest of the high and half elves apparently do not.

    Firiona is in a room with several wizards, so you;ll likely have to clear them before doing the hand in to her.

    You can run up and around on the edges, it's fairly safe. Also easy to single pull the high elf guards up here and kill them.

    At this point this Quests seems broken again. Military Documents as Groundspawn doesnt work and the drops dont count either. I ask myself who ever managed to get to Tier4 - They must have bugged it at the last patches :(
