If you can, save yourself alotta grief and plant a campfire by the Ember Tender at the start of this quest.
Or, be okay with her running your azz back and forth across the beautiful red parklands of Argin-Hiz REPEATEDLY.
And having to kill the pesky see inviso and his 2 friends, outside her door every time you are forced to return.
You can also return quickly from the annoying jaunt to Eldar Forrest with a campfire placed.
Profit from my pain. Place a campfire.

Getting to the flame is the tricky thing.
With an SK :
took south entrance from outside Ring. Left of side entrance : 1 keeper to kill that walk around
Then enter through the south Door, getting a bit on left : pulling and killing a Keeper
Getting on the next room on the left : killing the cloud
Then : invis, run to next room, open the door, run to the flame and FD. got UD.
Mage Coth to get out.
Did it twice. No death

Keepers see thru all invis, can't be snared and can't be mezzed. The imps see thru all invis as well. Some of the imps and storms can't be mezzed, along with a couple of other humanoid types I didn't bother to write down. The only somewhat tough part of this mission is to get to the Ro's Flame in the center of the Keeper's Hall. The Flame is in a circular room in the middle of 3 concentric rings. The rings all have some SI Keepers (and other mobs) as well as several wanderers. There are almost no entirely safe spots, although there are spots where you'd only be in danger from wanderers and that's if you're not invis'd. While your group can probably fight all the way to the Flame---assuming you can tank 2-3 mobs at the same time---it's a challenge. We found an easier way.

We fought our way to the second concentric ring. (Leaving one more ring beyond that, then the round room with the Flame.) We scouted ahead a bit using invulnerability spells, cast sight, an eye (and by eating a few deaths) and discovered there are safe spots in the inner areas---it's just impossible to get TO them without agro. (Maybe a rogue's SOS could manage but we had no rogue.) The southeast corner of the round central room, and the SE corner of the next ring are safe from SI mobs and only non-SI wanderers path by, and usually not even close enough to agro if you did not have an invis buff. What we did was cast a cleric invulnerability buff on our mage (18 seconds), have him run to these spots and die once the buff dropped. Once the mobs re-set and pathed away, we rezzed the mage THRU THE WALL. He then used his Call of the Heroes spell to summon the rest of the group. Once we got to the inner circle, we laid a campfire. When you're at the steps requiring moving to the Flame, this step is just a place update---there is nothing to click so it can be done quick. To make your move and get the update you can either kill the 2 SI roaming imps that circle the Flame slowly or time your move to avoid their meanderings. The campfire helps because you have to visit the Flame twice, and in the interim you need to run to Eiddar Forest. The campfire saves a lot of effort getting back to the center of the Hall.

The run to Elddar Forest was interesting since this zone, and the Ruins of Takhiz you need to pass through to get there, have probably never been visited by players with less than 10 years in the game. It's nice to have to visit old under-utilized zones in the course of completing current content missions.

Too many keepers of the flame up by the doorway to center, have to clear then wait for imps to path away and run to center, drop fire there so you don't have to kill again to light torch.

Anyone try this with a bard or chanter? How about without crowd control. Just kill and grind your way in?

Appreciate any advice!

You can get a Worlu's Windcloak (usually in Bazaar or from a friendly mage) to invis yourself and run into tower to light the torch. Fast and easy
