Call of the Forsaken Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor
This task is the first in a series of three. It's a shared task (1-6 players) that begins with Zebuxoruk in The Void (H). Note: Only the "Zebuxoruk" in The Void (H) will initiate this task (the Seeds of Destruction versions in Void A-G won't work).
To enter The Void (H), go to the portal area in the very far northeastern corner of the Ethernere Tainted West Karana and use the westernmost portal.
Pre-Requisites for Requesting:
- Completed "Answering the Call" (third Ethernere Tainted West Karana task)
- Completed "The Bixies of War" (Bixie Warfront partisan task)
- Completed "For the Sake of the Forsaken" (Dead Hills partisan task)
You say, 'Hail, Zebuxoruk'
Zebuxoruk says 'Your journey is not yet complete. The Fourth Gate is home to items that hold immeasurable power - the first, a staff that connects the living and the dead; the second, an ancient scroll whose words allow one to commune with their god. To obtain the first, you must obtain the second. You cannot do this alone. There is [one] within Third Gate who may seem an unlikely ally, but you must trust in him, and he must trust in you.'
You say, 'One?'
Zebuxoruk says 'A devout member of The Dead, a loner who has spent a lifetime searching for the scroll. He will need your help, and you will need his. A partnership must be formed if you wish to navigate Neriak - Fourth Gate undetected. I can [send] you to him now, if you wish.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Missing Scroll'.
You need to recover two powerful artifacts from Neriak Fourth Gate. Zebuxoruk claims you will need the help of an unlikely ally.
Find your unlikely ally and ask him about the missing scroll 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)
Task Window Says: Zebuxoruk claims an ally awaits you in Neriak Third Gate.
Say "send" to Zebuxoruk, and he will port you to Neriak Third Gate. There, you find Noxhil V`Sek. Ask him about a "missing scroll", and then follow his dialogues. You are assigned an expedition called "Northern Felwithe" (minimum players: 1; maximum players: 6). Tell him "send" to port into the instanced version of Felwithe.
NOTE: If you have low faction with "The Dead", Noxhil V`Sek won't respond to you, but you can still say "agree" to update the task and trigger the expedition (the dialogues will just be a little off).
You say, 'Hail, Noxhil V`Sek'
Noxhil V`Sek says 'Yes, _____? What is it? I don't have time for idle chatter.'
You say, 'Tell me about the missing scroll'
Noxhil V`Sek gives you his full attention, 'What do you know of the missing scroll? It was scribed long ago by the great necromancer G'han. With it, we can commune directly with Innoruuk. Unfortunately, one portion of the scroll was taken from us by a rogue who was hired by the Koada'Dal. In Felwithe, it doth lie. The Indigo Brotherhood now attempts to [reclaim] it.'
You say, 'Reclaim it?'
Noxhil V`Sek says 'A power struggle between the royals is playing out within Fourth Gate. All assets are being divided by any means, including subterfuge and thievery. If the legend of the scroll is true, it is an item that would considerably increase the power of whoever possessed it, swaying the city in favor of either the King or the Queen. Fourth Gate would fall into utter chaos. There are those that may not approve of my methods, but I serve Neriak, and no one else. I'd be willing to assist you with your entry into Fourth Gate if you [agree] to search for the missing half of the scroll.'
You say, 'I agree'
Noxhil V`Sek says 'I do not know the exact location of the scroll, though it is rumored to be kept under guard within the Paladin's guild. I can [send] you there quickly, but I cannot enter Felwithe myself.'
You say, 'Send me...'
Noxhil V`Sek says 'Be careful. I imagine the guards are on edge as of late.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Northern Felwithe.
Enter Felwithe and make your way to the Paladin's guild 0/1 (Felwithe)
Defeat the guards blocking your way! 0/4 (Felwithe)
Task Window Says: Noxhil insists the missing half of the scroll is being held in Felwithe, and he wants you to retrieve it. Many guards stand between you and the Paladin guild!
From the zone-in, head due east. The paladin guild hall is just inside the entrance gate, and stairs to the basement can be found on either side of the entry room. Kill at least four guards along the way. Guards hit for a max ~12,000, are mezzable and stunnable, but not rootable.
Defeat General Jyleel 0/1 (Felwithe)
Defeat Seria Woodwind 0/1 (Felwithe)
Task Window Says: General Jyleel and Seria Woodwind do not want you to pass!
General Jyleel calls out to Seria, 'Alert the guards! We have intruders. Do not let them pass!'
Seria Woodwind says 'Time to die, _____!'
These two NPCs are in the basement, and are believed to be aggro-linked. Each hits for a max ~15,000. Both are stunnable, but not rootable/snareable. Only General Jyleel is known to be mezzable (Seria, unknown).
Search for the scroll in the secret area behind the Paladin's guild 0/1 (Felwithe)
Task Window Says: The scroll should be somewhere within the halls behind the Paladin guild.
Head through the false wall in the back of Seria and Jyleel's room and into the tunnels. This step updates at around /location 50, -160, 32 (this is a chest on the north balcony overlooking the city entrance). Upon update, two guards spawn and attack. A third guard (static zone spawn) may also add, but isn't a necessary kill.
Guard Hutain says 'Time to die, _____!'
Guard Jassong says 'Time to die, _____!'
Defeat the guards who ambushed you 0/2 (Felwithe)
Task Window Says: Do not let the guards stop you from obtaining the scroll!
Unlike the previous two mobs you dealt with, these two guards are NOT aggro-linked. They are standard mobs for the zone (hit for a max ~12,000; stunnable; mezzable; immune to root/snare).
Speak with Lieutenant Rosaed 0/1 (Felwithe)
Task Window Says: A Lieutenant of the Emerald Warriors wishes to call a truce.
Lieutenant Rosaed spawns upon the guards' deaths.
Lieutenant Rosaed shouts 'Enough of the bloodshed! It is clear what you're looking for, but the scroll is no longer here.'
You say, 'Hail, Lieutenant Rosaed'
Lieutenant Rosaed says 'The scroll was in our possession, it is true, but I swear on my honor as an Emerald Warrior that it is no longer within the walls of this city. There is no need to spill more blood. A better thief than you breached our defenses and made off with the scroll. One of my guards caught a glimpse of the bandit, but could only describe her as a cloaked Teir`Dal. My advice to you is to [return] to whoever sent you, and demand to know why they set you up.'
Return to Noxhil V`Sek in Neriak Third Gate 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)
Task Window Says: Return to Noxhil and assess the situation. You must be near Noxhil to receive your reward.
You say, 'Hail, Noxhil V`Sek'
Noxhil V`Sek appears genuinely shocked by your report, 'The scroll has been stolen once again? I promise you, _____, I had nothing to do with this. A cloaked female, you say? Someone from the Dreadguard or Dark Arm, I'm sure; a blatant grab for power, orchestrated by the royals. If either party is successful, then I fear Fourth Gate will fall into civil war. That must be avoided at all costs, even if it means sending you into the city to put a stop to it. I warn you though, the city is in turmoil. I would not wander Fourth Gate without a [disguise].
You attempted to recover the scroll of G`Han from Felwithe, only to find it has been stolen once again.
You say, 'What disguise?'
Noxhil V`Sek says 'I will help using what little I know of illusions. While within Fourth Gate, you will be cloaked in magic that will cause others to see you as a dark elf. This should allow you to safely pass through most parts of the city. Be warned, however, the royals still bicker. Those loyal to the King or Queen will attack on sight any who don't share their loyalty. I will head to Fourth Gate now. Find me once you've arrived, as we have much to discuss.'
From here on, when you enter Neriak Fourth Gate you will be illusioned as a Dark Elf, making you non-KOS to the city's residents.
