Call of the Forsaken Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor

About Heroic Adventures

- Heroic adventures in Call of the Forsaken scale in level: As low as Level 75 and up to current maximum level.
- Scale is based on the highest level player present in the zone and affects difficulty, loot quality, and mob levels.
- There is some variation/randomization in the task steps you'll be assigned as you progress through the task.
- Time of completion will vary by your group's makeup (anywhere from 30-90+ minutes).
- Collection items appear as ground spawns midway through tasks (you'll see an emote indicating their appearance).
- Named mobs (or their PHs) spawn midway through tasks (usually, but always, at the same time collection items appear).
- These tasks have individual 3-hour lockout timers (timer gained upon completion).

Experience in Heroic Adventures

- Mobs in these instances grant some experience, but the bulk of experience is earned upon task completion.
- As of a patch in November 2014, less difficult tasks were tuned to reward less experience and more difficult ones were tuned to reward more.
- For an added experience bonus, check out Guard Hamarn's "Daily Tasks".



This is a heroic adventure (1-6 players) that begins with Rozz T`Ver (click for map image) in Neriak Fourth Gate.

TASK IN DETAIL

========================================================================
TRIGGERING THE TASK
========================================================================

You say, 'Hail, Rozz T`Ver'

Rozz T`Ver says 'In the aftermath of the construct battle, the king and queen are more at odds than ever. Her majesty has been banished from the palace, and all those loyal to her killed or imprisoned. It's left the queen quite bitter and paranoid. I'm afraid her lust for [revenge] will interfere with the greater goal of winning this war. Without ears and eyes in the palace, the queen cannot gain ground in this ongoing battle. She needs an ally on the inside; one to [recover] information about what the king has planned.'

You say, 'I'll recover some information...'

Rozz T`Ver appears relieved, 'I knew I could count on you, _____.' The dark elf scans her surroundings before continuing, 'Meet me outside the palace entrance when you're [ready]. We have much to discuss.'

You have been assigned the task 'The King's Court'.

Explore Darklight Palace and discover information about the king's plans.

You say, 'Ready!'

Rozz T`Ver says 'Make haste, _____.'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Neriak - Fourth Gate.

========================================================================
STEP #1
========================================================================

Speak to Rozz T'Ver just outside the palace entrance 0/1 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: Rozz T`Ver is waiting just outside Darklight Palace to the left.

If You Get This Step: Hail Rozz (just east of the zone-in point).

You say, 'Hail, Rozz T`Ver'

Rozz T`Ver appears relieved to see you, 'I'll make this brief, since we don't have much time. What allies the Queen has left remain in hiding, fearful for their lives. They must be reached at all costs. Their accounts of palace activities will be crucial in helping the queen get one step ahead of her deplorable husband. You need to ferret out her allies and retrieve their reports.

========================================================================
STEP #2
========================================================================

Gather reports from the queen's spies within the palace 0/3 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: You need to collect reports from spies within the palace. They may not be so eager to speak with guards around.

If You Get This Step: Kill guards around NPCs called "a nervous guest", and then hail the guests.

a nervous guest leans in and whispers, 'It's not safe to talk with guards nearby.'

a nervous guest lets out a sigh of relief, 'I was worried the guards might discover my true identity. Many of those loyal to her majesty have been executed or imprisoned. If the rumors are true, some have even bargained for their lives by betraying the queen.'

a nervous guest speaks with urgency, 'My report will be brief, I'm afraid. The guards may be dead, but others will soon take their place. The palace is becoming a dangerous place for those of us aligned with the queen. The king has been meeting with many of his most trusted advisors, often in secret, protected by the Dreadguard.'

a nervous guest glances around nervously before speaking, 'You arrived just in time. Something big is going to happen tonight. The Dreadguard is assembling in the throne room as we speak, likely to provide protection when the king and his advisors meet in secret. It's crucial for the queen to have eyes and ears on this meeting. Finding out its location should be your top priority.'

=====================

Mingle with chatty nobles and gossiping guests 0/2 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: ?

If You Get This Step: Kill guards until you loot an "Ornate Bone Key". With this key, open up "an ornate chest" (found around the palace) until you get a hold of "Fine Attire". Then under the effect of Fine Attire, get near gossiping or chatty NPCs until you get an update.

=====================

Loot journals from guests and nobles within the palace 0/4 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: ?

If You Get This Step: Kill palace guests and visiting nobles until you've looted 4x "Bound Journal", then right-click one of the journals.

========================================================================
STEP #3
========================================================================

Bribe a member of the Dreadguard 0/1 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: ?

If You Get This Step: Kill palace guests and visiting nobles until you a loot "Heavy Sack of Gold". Take this item and hand it to Dragoons. Upon turn-in, they'll either accept it and update the task, or attack you.

=====================

Beat information out of a Dragoon 0/1 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: ?

If You Get This Step: Kill Dragoons until you find one that locks at 50% health (will update step).

=====================

Get a Dragoon drunk to reveal information 0/1 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: Palace life is a party to some! It's possible that some inebriated guests might have some strong spirits. It'll probably take at least a few drinks to get a guard talking.

If You Get This Step: Kill inebriated nobles and tipsy guests until you've looted a "Ruby Port". Hand in this item to Dragoons until you find one that accepts it (others will give it back to you and attack). It will take four Ruby Port hand-ins to the same guard before it begins talking.

Dragoons are non-aggro to begin with. Upon hand-in, if rejected, you'll see something like this (right before it attacks - this particular Dragoon then remains aggro/KOS until it's dead):

Dragoon N`Mare says 'What is this? Dreadguards don't drink on the job. I'll kill you for your ignorance!'

Dragoon N`Mare says 'This is going to end quickly for you.'

When you find the Dragoon that accepts them (there will be only one in the zone, and which one is random), you'll see these responses as you hand them in one by one:

Dragoon D`Jerna glances around to make sure no one is looking, 'One sip wouldn't hurt, right? It's been a long day.'

Dragoon D`Jerna eagerly accepts another glass, 'This really hits the spot. It's so smooth and sweet. I've been working too many shifts, trying to keep up with the king and all his meetings.'

Dragoon D`Jerna slurs a bit while speaking, 'Another glass, you say? Why, I don't mind if I do. It would be a shame to let such a good port go to waste. It'll help pass the time until the latest meeting takes place.'

Dragoon D`Jerna struggles to stand upright, 'I'm not sure my legs work anymore, ha! But It's not like I have to go anywhere, anway! The meeting's taking place right in this very room.' The guard empties the glass in one gulp, 'Thanks for the drink, friend. If you want to witness a boring exchange between the king and his advisor, I suggest you do so from the gallery above.'

The fourth hand-in updates the step.

========================================================================
STEP #4
========================================================================

Spy on the king and his advisor 0/1 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: The king will be meeting with his advisor in the throne room. The gallery above should provide a safe spot to eavesdrop.

If You Get This Step: This is a location update on the balcony above the king's throne room. WARNING: If you get too close, the King will aggro you and summon you to your death.

King Naythox Thex scans the room before speaking, 'Let's make this quick, Rozik. What do you have to report?'

Advisor Rozik D`Vin says 'The prisoners are secured in the parlor, your majesty. They're refusing to talk, for now, but I have ways of making people speak...'

King Naythox Thex grits his teeth, 'They'll spill the queen's secrets or die. It's that simple. Use whatever tactics you can to recover information, no matter how gruesome. We must find out if that conniving wench is now allied with my wife. If the two of them have formed a partnership, our city will fall.'

Advisor Rozik D`Vin nods, 'Understood, your majesty. I'll continue the interrogation at once.'

========================================================================
STEP #5
========================================================================

Rescue the queen's remaining allies 0/4 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: The queen's remaining allies are being held captive in the parlor. Rescue them before the king's guards torture them into talking!

If You Get This Step: In a room north of the king's room, you'll find several captive allies. Clear the room (and entrance) of guards to update this step.

(Task completes here; there is no completion text.)

=====================

Kill all the traitors 0/8 (Neriak Fourth Gate)

Task Window Says: ?

If You Get This Step: Standard kill update (8x "a traitorous Teir`Dal").

(Task completes here; there is no completion text.)

17 AA's for completion at 105. Found 3 out the supposed 4 collectibles. Since I had the time I spent 30 minutes scouting for the 4th, with no luck. Since the zone doesn't permit lev it's possible it spawned up high on a column or wall and was out of sight. But frustrating for sure! Task completes with final step, no hail involved, so if you're using a potion or Lesson, plan accordingly.

TASK SUMMARY

- Say "recover" to request the task and "begin" to zone in.


Saying "ready" works too, which is good since it's one of my hot buttons. Smiley: tongue

Quote:
If You Get This Step: Kill inebriated nobles and tipsy guests until you've looted a "Ruby Port".


The tipsy NPCs almost always had a wine but we didn't get any from the inebriated. I suspect the inebriated had drank all theirs. Seriously, it was a waste of time to kill inebriated NPCs. Smiley: drunk Smiley: drunk Smiley: drunk

Pay attention, here! If you agro the King, he will agro onto your entire group and slaughter them all instantly, no matter where they are, even at the zone-in. He will then camp their corpses, necessitating summoning corpses to the Guild Lobby and rezzing/rebuffing there. By the time I did this and got back to the quest-giver to zone back in, the task got bugged for us and we were unable to resume. So had to quit and start all over. Fortunately, we hadn't spent much time on the mission up to this point.

The TRICK to this step is not to overthink or overdo it. Go to the balcony BEHIND the King on the map. Just step into the room. Do NOT get tempted to get any closer to the edge and IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS HOLY do not get tempted to look over the top and HEAVEN FORBID even try to LOOK at the King. This is DEATH! Just stay there right at the entrance waiting patiently. Within a matter of a few minutes at most the King and his Advisor will have their little dialogue, you'll get your update and you can carefully creep backwards out of the balcony back to your group. Then offer me Smiley: bowdown for this good advice!

First try:

Mingle with chatty nobles and gossiping guests 0/2
does not update. only two noble-pairs quiet down, the third pair attacked and we had to kill em. Then the task locks, no update anymore.
Also the Dark Elf illusion does not hold very long and guards are KOS. The nobles are also talking when a enchanter Dark Elf Illusion is cast and you are invis. But no update, only
"The once chatty nobles quiet down as an outsider apporaches"

Second try:
Dropped the quest and took it again. Got the updates but only with the Illusion from the Fine Attire. Don' t kill any unnecessary mobs in advance. You will need perhaps some of them. Killed two nobles/guests first and then the NPCs for the updates were gone.

Edited, Apr 1st 2014 9:37am by Fayman

Third try:
Gone thrown out after the update for the King and his Advisor didn't work. He killed nearly the whole group which waited inside and stayed around the entrance. Every attempt to come closer was an instant summon and death, regardless going from the balcony or from the entrances. Stayed at the balcony for nearly an hour. This quest is complete ridden with bugs. Btw. Warrior got ported into Neriak Task again and some seconds later the zone seemed to crash and he got thrown to the login screen. After login he was in Lesser Faydark.

This Task is completely ridiculous...

Edited, Apr 1st 2014 2:59pm by Fayman

Fourth try:
Worked.
- didn't killed any unnecessary mobs, adds got mezz and Blanket of Forget to avoid killing them
- didn't stayed in the kings room after bribing the dread guard (after 4 guards which attacked me)
- didn't got the Fine Attire this time, used Enchanter Dark Elf Illusion

Okay think i figured out the problem in this mission.When at step 4 to get update on balcony have to make sure you dont get aggro from the king or advisor before get to step cause basically as it seems you have to "SPY" so gettin aggro ruins the chance to spy have done mission multiple times now and works every time without gettin aggro from either npc

For step 4 (spy on the king and his advisor) I could not get the update for the life of me. It is a location update on the balcony... I ran up and down all over the balcony and never got the update. If you get to close to the ledge of the balcony King Naythox Thex will summon you and round you for 40k per hit. Is this a bug or am I in the wrong area??

Put in a /bug on this one. I normally box the full group, happened to have two mages standing near the doors in the room with the balcony (Dragoon area on the above map). Boss spawned and killed them. Had another toon on the balcony who I got to in time to watch the boss standing over the corpses. We could have engaged with what was left and probably won it but I decided to route his pathing for the EQ gang. He walked through a non-usable door into the inaccessible area of the zone. Never came back.

This may explain part of the low boss spawn complaints. They spawn... we just can't get to them.
