Praetor Brimshaw can be found in the far southwestern corner of Skyfire Mountains at -1360, +3421, -122 and his is on CTRL F find.

This is a shared task.

You say, 'Hail, Praetor Brimshaw'

Praetor Brimshaw says, 'Welcome to the Skyfire Mountains, Gidono. The air up here would be quite thinner if it wasn't so thick with this volcanic soot,' he complains, head tilted toward the entrance with casual disapproval. 'Are you on Combine [business:What is the Combine's business here?] or just... Here for the sights?' he asks with a sneer.

You say, 'What is the Combine's business here?'

Praetor Brimshaw says, 'The sarnak fortress of [Gorowyn:What do you know about Gorowyn?] lies to the north. We've established this camp to survey the [area:Have you found anything in the area?] and watch for potential attacks.'

You say, 'What do you know about Gorowyn?'

Praetor Brimshaw scowls, 'A pit every bit as abysmal as these Marr-forsaken mountains, no doubt. The sarnak here are more aggressive and spiteful than ever.'

You say, 'Have you found anything in the area?'

Praetor Brimshaw says, 'We've found three large magical orbs in the area. They seem to be ancient and are resonating with intense power. Investigation has been slow, however; our expeditions are being harried by ratmen. We've traced their nest back to the [graveyard:There's a graveyard here?] east of us.'

You say, 'There's a graveyard here?'

Praetor Brimshaw says, 'Not just any graveyard; this one's filled with ancient dragon bones. Some kind of Veeshan thing,' he continues with a shrug. 'Regardless, it has enough [corpses:Who would make this their final resting place?] of our kind, and the ones still moving don't seem to mind [ratmen:I'll help with your ratmen problem.] very much. That's where you come in.' He regards you with a hopeful smirk.

You say, 'Who would make this their final resting place?'

Praetor Brimshaw scratches his head, 'Foolhardy adventurers mostly, over the years, lured by tales of treasure and draconic artifacts. Pilgrims, too, hoping to make contact with the dragons or perhaps Veeshan herself. Did you know they think she's as large as the moon?'

You say, 'I'll help with your ratmen problem.'

Praetor Brimshaw nods, 'Excellent. Now go teach those scavengers to mind their own business... and see if you can find out why they're being so aggressive.'

You have been assigned the task 'The Dragons' Graveyard'.


Praetor Brimshaw asked you to deal with the aggressive scavengers nesting in the ancient dragon graveyard to the east of the Combine's camp in Skyfire.

Kill the hissing and chattering ratment.
Make your way to the draconic symbol in the center of the graveyard and see if you can find anything of note.

  • 1. Quell the aggressive ratment 0/6 The Skyfire Mountains

    Kill Chattering or Hissing Ratmen. They are in the south central part of the zone.


  • 2. Examine the draconic symbol 0/1 The Skyfire Mountains

    Same area as the ratmen, in the South Central of zone - shows up on my maps as a red symbol. It's the old druid/wizard port in pad.


  • 3. Clear and examine the altar area. 0/1 The Skyfire Mountains

    It is southeast from the Draconic symbol, clear the mobs around the altar (4 undead retrogenitors) and then run up to the altar for update.


  • 4. Report your finds to Praetor Brimshaw. 0/1 The Skyfire Mountains

    Hail him for update. Praetor gives you a Silver-Tipped Stake for later use.

    If you lose this stake, just say stake to him to get another.


  • 5. Find a knife from a ratman. 0/1 The Skyfire Mountains

    Not item drops, task just updates when you kill Chattering or Hissing Ratmen.
    Failed message: You search the ratman but are unable to locate a knife on this one.
    Success message: You search the ratman and find a simple dagger. This will work for the ritual!



  • 6. Find a coin from a ratman.

    Same as step #5.
    Failed message: You search the ratman but are unable to find a coin on this one.
    Success message: You search the ratman and find a scuffed coin. This will work for the ritual!



  • 7. Find a goblet from a vampire. 0/1 The Skyfire Mountains

    Kill Ashen, Grim or Retrogenitors for update.
    Failed message:You search the vampire but are unable to find a goblet on this one.
    Success message: You search the vampire and find a blackened chalice. This will work for the ritual!



  • 8. Find a wand from a vampire. 0/1 The Skyfire Mountains

    Same as step #7.
    Failed message: You search the vampire but are unable to find a wand on this one.
    Success message: You search the vampire and find a bony, crimson-tipped wand. This will work for the ritual!



  • 9. Bless the stake at the vampire altar. 0/1 The Skyfire Mountains

    Make sure you clear the area first as you have to click the stake you were given. The stake casts a spell and breaks your invis/sos.

    After a successful bless, 4 emotes appear (you place the coin....you place the goblet.... etc.), each about 2 seconds apart, then the mobs spawn on the platform.

    Same altar as step #3. Must clear all 4 vampires. Person with Silver-Tipped Stake gets update at altar.


  • 10. Defeat Dax and Droccus.

    They spawn on the Draconic symbol. Kill Dax and Droccus, they should have spawned in the center of the graveyard, if not you can click the Stake to spawn them, when you are not in combat. When you spawn Dax and Droccus, there will also be a third mob that spawns on the platform. Only Dax and the other mob go active at the beginning. Kill the other mob first, then get Dax to 75% and then stake him. Dax dies when you stake him and the only mob you will have left to deal with is Droccus. You might want to clear some of the mobs around the platform before you start as we got them as adds on our first attempt. If you fail you can click the stake on the platform again to re-spawn Dax and Droccus.


  • 11. Report to Praetor Brimshaw 0/1 (Skyfire Mountains)

    Return to and Hail Praetor Brimshaw

    I killl absolutely everything around the alter, not a mob around and it woudln't let me activate the stake. I hate quest like this. No good location information and buggy as can be. I would they wouldn stop half-assing these expansions.

    Make sure you thin out all the wanderers around the central platform before you trigger the final fight.
    I had gated/wiped several times. Then, I spent about 10 minutes standing on the platform and killed anything that came near, then I triggered the fight.
    Without all the adds, the final fight isn't hard.

    Here is what happened to me and how I handled it

    Summary:
    • On the part where you needed to collect 4 things, I actually only collected 3. I hadn't collected the cup from the vampires. However, I thought that I had, so I clicked the dagger at the altar and the two named and the third person spawned on the platform
    • I had a bunch of spawn near me to clear and I was confused why the dracolith/dax/add even spawned since I had not yet collected the cup.
    • After clearing the mobs, I went to the platform and killed the extra mob and Dax, but the Dracolith had despawned by while I killed them.
    • So, even though I didn't have the cup yet, I clicked the dagger while I was On the platform. So you do not need to be at the alter to click it. The dracolith, dax and add vampire all spawned. I killed the vamp and dax. I then killed the dracolith and finally I went and killed more vampires until I got the update for the cup.
    • I then went back and tried to hail the praetor, however hailing did not work. So I clicked on "dragon" keyword that appeared when I hailed and it did the update and I was finished
    • I did not ever stake dax or dracolilth, I just killed them in melee / spells. Just do it fast enough so that the dracolith does not despawn

    Issue when Hailing Preator

    When I got to the point where I needed to hail him for the update, hailing him didn't do anything.

    To get the update, I said "stake" even though it wasn't on an option on the screen. I took a shot on this, because someone had posted that if you failed, you could stay "stake" to him and get another. So effectively I acted like I failed and it worked.
    Have to restart task if you need to get another Silver Spike

    Have done this entire task twice now, each time wiping due to multiple adds. Dax and Droccus will only stay spawned for a short while. The first time I wiped, I hadn't killed either of them. I succored out successfully and by the time I got back to the area, they had both poofed. The "silver spike" is used up when you "bless" it so I don't what they are talking about when they say "Kill the other mob first, then get Dax to 75% and then stake him. Dax dies when you stake him and the only mob you will have left to deal with is Droccus." I obtained another silver stake from Praetor Brimshaw and recleared the area around the altar. I attempted to bless the new stake and it would not let me stating something to the effect that I hadn't completed all of the steps needed to prepare the stake for blessing. I killed everything in the area and the message would not go away. Dropped the task, restarted it, killed Dax this time before getting swamped with adds and having to abort again. Droccus had poofed by the time I made it back across the zone from succor location. I got another silver spike, cleared the altar area and was presented with the same infuriating message preventing me from blessing the new stake and respawning Dax and Droccus.

    This is just the corner of the fence and mountains to the right of the gate by the wiz portal.
    The rock square is the update.

    If you (ahem) accidentally lose your stake, Praetor Brimshaw will give you another one if you go through his text, or say <stake> to him.

    Blessing the Stake not trivial

    Blessing the stake at the altar is more than just a location update. You have to actually click the stake and cast a spell; takes 3.5 seconds. This breaks invis and SoS so even for a rogue it's tricky. If the area isn't clear, you have to find a spot where none of the vampires or nearby mobs can see you.
    After a successful bless, 4 emotes appear (you place the coin....you place the goblet.... etc.), each about 2 seconds apart, then the mobs spawn on the platform.

    You can use a rogue for the stake blessing without clearing the altar again.
