    You say, 'Hail, Ayslare N`Vor'

    Ayslare N`Vor offers a subtle nod to ____, 'Greetings. I am Ayslare N`Vor, Priestess of the Dark Father and scholar of The Spires. I have traveled far, all the way from Neriak, and my search has been fruitless so far. Unfortunately, my superiors are unable to send me further assistance for my cause, leaving my pupil and I alone in our [search:What are you searching for?]. You can understand why I'm not in the mood for the formalities of a friendly introduction, ____. If you would excuse me -- good day.'

    You say, 'What are you searching for?'

    Ayslare N`Vor says, 'Well, if you wish to inquire, ____... perhaps you may find yourself of worth to [aid me:How can I aid you?], yes? During my apprenticeship in the temple, I discovered the lore of a lost magical force that was wielded by the Koada`Dal priests during their battles with the iksar armies of Rile Sathir. Though I obviously have no love for Koada`Dal's magics and of course their faith is too debased to acknowledge, I would find the irony pleasing if we were to obtain something they had once lost and use it for the benefit of our Dark Father.'

    You say, 'How can I aid you?'

    Ayslare N`Vor flashes a cunning smirk and nods slowly, 'Very well, ____. If that is your wish, then I'll allow you the opportunity to prove yourself to a priest of the Dark Father. Venture into the ruined city where Trakanon now resides and retrieve the Scoll of the Dark. The Words of the Dark may be found in the mines and the Dark Invocation you shall find in the city enshrouded by mist. Once you have acquired those three items, take them to my pupil, Shandral.'

    Head to Old Sebilis.

  • Scroll of the Dark looted from skeletal heirophant or skeletal baron in Old Sebilis.

    Head to Mines of Nurga.

  • Words of the Dark looted from Poguu the Herbalist in Mines of Nurga.

    Head to City of Mist.

  • The Dark Invocation looted from Dark Invoker in City of Mist. (NOTE: Ingame name is just "Dark Invocation")

  • Give Scroll of the Dark, Words of the Dark and The Dark Invocation to Shandral. (next building over from Ayslare).

    Shandral says, 'I see that my mentor has gained the assistance she was looking for...' The young priestess scans the contents of the three scrolls and then flashes a wicked smirk, 'And one of considerable competency at that. I have performed the proper alterations and combinations of the important texts, ____. Thanks to your efforts, I've been able to decipher the location of the lost shield, the one wielded by many of the priests that my mentor has taken it upon herself to investigate. Take this lore back to Ayslare, though she shall also will need the Black Steel Defender.'

    Receive: Lore of the Dark.

    Head to Emerald Jungle.

  • Black Steel Defender looted from Spectral Soldier in Emerald Jungle.

    Go back to The Overthere.

  • Give the item Shandral gave you and Black Steel Defender to Ayslare.

    Ayslare N`Vor says, 'Ah... well done indeed! The craftsmanship of this item has since fallen to ruin, and I shall need your aid to return it to its former glory before we can complete the transition of its current power to that of the Dark Faith. Venture into the sarnak stronghold and retrieve the Horns of a Sarnak Noble, find me a Block of Black Ore from The Hole, and acquire the Sleek Black Beads from a creature known as the Nightclaw Raptor. Return those items, along with the Dreadeye Shield that has been restored to you, to my apprentice, Shandral.'

    Receive: The Dreadeye.

    Shandral says, 'This is perfect, ____. The shield has been restored and its connection to the Koada`Dal faith contained, though they are not destroyed. There is an item, or rather a curse -- an ancient curse that is believed to have been bestowed upon one of these power-bearing Koada`Dal priests. He who forged the curse was Tatrinek, a sarnak priest of great power. It has been centuries, perhaps even millennia since Tatrinek walked the face of Norrath, but his curse remains in existence, or so we believe. Venture into the stronghold of the sarnak and retrieve the curse, where it is held by one of the royal advisors and return it along with the Intricate Shield to Ayslare.'

    Receive: Intricate Shield.

    Head to Chardok.

  • Tatrinek's Curse looted from an Imperial Advisor or a Shai'din Bloodomen in Chardok.

    Go back to The Overthere

  • Give Intricate Shield and Tatrinek's Curse to Ayslare.

    Ayslare N`Vor says, 'Ah, Tatrinek's Curse! This shall indeed be sufficient to rend the magic from the shield.' The priestess closes her eyes and recites the curse, already imprinted into her memory from her brief exposure to its ancient and nearly illegible words. As she speaks, the shield's once radiant holy light fades beneath a deep indigo hue of unholy magic. The priestess then opens her eyes, a dark, sinister smile stretched across her face, and she offers you the corrupted shield, 'Wield it, child, for it is the Dark Father's power that has blessed this once holy item. You have earned its power.'

    Receive: Shield of the Dark.

    I was able to complete this quest while being KOS. I simply stood on the other side of the and initiated trade then had invis cast on me. If you're out of LOS, a KOS mob won't attack. You can complete the entire quest this way even when KOS. I didn't do any hails, just turn-ins.
    Finished Quest - A Few Updates/Help

    Finished this quest today on Coirnav and wanted to add a few things that may be helpful to those working on the quest. First of all, for turn ins, no factioning is required even if you ruined your VS faction in Karnor's like I did. Just put one of the items you're turning in, whichever step it may be, on your cursor then invis to the mob and stand behind them. Have cloudy potions in your inventory and linked to a hotkey. Double click quickly on the npc with one of the turnin items in hand to break invis and open a trade window. As soon as the window opens, hit the cloudy potion and if quick enough you should have a trade window open and also be invis'd conning indifferent to either Ayslare or Shandal depending on which step you're turning in.

    As far as specific items go, Tatrinek's Curse is much more easily acquired from a Shai'din Bloodomen at Korucust camp than it is from the listed mob which is an Imperial Advisor who stands behind the Queen. It took about an hour to get one to drop.

    Nightclaw Raptor took me a while to spawn but popped from clearing roaming undead outside Sebilis after we killed 150 or so.

    Dark Invoker was a pain for me to spawn but I ended up finding him on the second level inside a door near the zoneline side of City of Mist. It appears there can only be one up at a time and from looking at magelo's spawn data for the mob, it seems that it can pop behind locked doors in on the floating platforms as well as all around the second level behind the one lower level reaver and up the ramps all the way across the zone to the spot near EJ zoneline side that I found him at.

    Just ran across several of the other pieces so can't comment as to their rarity or spawn mechanisms.

    No. You'll need to gain faction with The Overthere outpost in order to do it. The NPC that starts this quest is on Venril Sathir faction as is a large majority of the NPC's in the outpost.

    Do this quest https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=5 or kill Kunark dragons for Venril Sathir faction. Not many options with that particular faction during Kunark.

    I dropped into The Hole at Master Yael and started clearing towards the undead city to get the Block of Black Ore from Lamenting Spirit. After killing a few elementals, a rat man, and several a rock golem, to my surprise, a "Block of Black Ore" dropped off the 5th a rock golem. No need to continue travelling all the way to top of the castle for some rare spawn!
