You say, 'Hail, Dusky Iron Meditation'
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Ah, a mortal. Stratos seems infected with them now.'
You say, 'key to Esianti'
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Oh, I am sorry. I did not intend to be rude, even to a mere mortal. I am distracted by the loss of my servant and will be so until it [returns]. I have such a key, but I will need it to complete my task.'
You say, 'returns'
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'I sent it on an errand of some great import and it has not yet returned. I cannot [seek it out], for should I do so it will certainly return here and be confused by my absence. I am sure you, as a mortal, understand. So I must await here.'
You say, 'seek it out'
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Ah, perhaps you have a point. Send a pebble to find a pebble, as they say. I could ask you to seek it out, but I am concerned that there will be issues entering a contract with a mortal. It would certainly be pointed out that you cannot understand the details of such a contract. Such a thing would contain greater risk for me than for you. However, my need is great. I have been sent on an errand that I must complete. It should have been simple and has become, as it always seems to, disturbingly [difficult].'
You say, 'difficult'
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Of course, this would be even more difficult for you. You mentioned that you were interested in a way to enter Esianti. I am willing to offer you access if, by some miracle, could assist me in accomplishing my [task].'
You say, 'task'
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Clever of you to ask. I seek payment for a delivery made to Stratos. The contract has been broken by the receiver and payment has not been made for the earth we delivered recently. I must recover that payment so that I may return to Mearatas. If you will [accept] a contract to assist me as needed to recover that payment, I will give you my Esianti key upon completion.'
You say, 'accept'
You have been assigned the task 'Key to the Kingdom'.
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'So be it. First you will need to discover where my servant has gone.'

Respawn time on the Pile of Rubble from the first step is about 3 minutes.

There are only 3 spawn locations as follows:

-- (130, -335, 186) -- next to the NPC "an upset dervish"
-- (441, 222, 187) -- on the small island just east of the NPC "Still Ore"
-- (186, 633, 213) -- on the small island south-west of the NPC "Still Ore"

And here is the rest (note that there are not 4 versions of this quest, but step three does have 3 versions depending which of the 3 ground spawns you pick up. All 3 versions end with the same item being looted however, and the quest proceeds the same for all following steps.

All task steps are correct above, so I have only included the task window text (if any) ....

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

Step 2 has no dialogue at all, just a "Your task 'Key to the Kingdom' has been updated."

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

Step 3 Task Window:
-- Discover how the geonid died from the evidence found on the rubble of Unfettered Stone and any witnesses you can find.

You say, 'Hail, an upset dervish'
An upset dervish says, 'Go away!'

// If you picked up (130, -335, 186) -- the closest to Dusky Iron Meditation

You say, 'Hail, an upset dervish'
An upset dervish says, 'Hello, strange creature. Why do you disturb me so? I have much to [think about] right at this moment.'
You say, 'think about'
An upset dervish says, 'I did something wrong. I did a thing for one of the earth, took it up to the tower. It wanted to see around before returning to its master. But then it [fell].'
You say, 'fell'
[An upset dervish says, 'It fell. I guess it was not part of the air, and so would not be supported by it? Or that it was part of the earth and was drawn to it, very quickly drawn to it. It was turned into smaller versions of itself, but none of those could speak. And it stayed in one place until the [water being] came, and then until you came and took what the water left.'
You say, 'water being'
An upset dervish says, 'It came upon the small pieces of earth and took away from it some smaller piece of earth. It appeared as though it was doing as it should not, seemed worried that I would try to prevent it from taking the piece. Where it went I do not know. Please understand, I did not know that the earth would destroy one of its own like that.'

Spawns "a furtive elemental" nearby

----

Step 3 Task Window:
-- Return the recovered gemstone to Dusky Iron Meditation

You say, 'Hail, a languishing courier'
A languishing courier says, 'I cannot be bothered by you now, I am relaxing.'

// If you picked up (441, 222, 187) -- the second closest to Dusky Iron Meditation

You say, 'Hail, a languishing courier'
A languishing courier says, 'Now is not the time to disturb me, I am resting, recovering from what I have been forced to [witness].'
You say, 'witness'
A languishing courier says, 'It was a terrible thing, a thing that makes me churn to think of. A bumbling earth creature, moving far too fast and not looking where it was going, collided with an innocent tide, destroying both. The violence of it! Horrible. They were both destroyed and their destruction caused some misshapen monstrosity of mud to come into being. I... I cannot talk of it more.'

Spawns "a confused mud elemental" nearby

----

Step 3 Task Window:
-- Dusky Iron Meditiation gleaned some useful information from the faint memories of his late servant. There may be enough information to convince an Udex to hear his case. Find an Udex and tell them about the price owed for the most recent delivery of earth.

You say, 'Hail, a hidden mephit'
A hidden mephit says, 'No! A mortal! I can't speak with you!'

// If you picked up (186, 633, 213) -- the furthest from Dusky Iron Meditation

You say, 'Hail, a hidden mephit'
A hidden mephit says, 'Oh! A mortal! Please, do not destroy me like you did the [other]!'
You say, 'other'
[A hidden mephit says, 'Yes! You killed that poor earth creature! Don't try to convince me that you [did not] do so.'
You say, 'did not'
A hidden mephit seems to calm down somewhat. 'Oh, well, you don't look so much like that one. It was very small, with... I believe you call it hair, all over its face. It came here and killed the earth being and skulked away! I don't want to think of it. And you make me nervous. Please leave.

Spawns "a furtitive dwarf" nearby

Kill the NPC that spawns and loot Gemstone Heart of Unfettered Stone.

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

Step 4 Task Window:
-- Listen to the result of the hearing.

// Upon hand in ...

You have been given: Clear Heart of Unfettered Stone
Your task 'Key to the Kingdom' has been updated.
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Well, this helps greatly! In the memory of Unfettered Stone is the information I need.' Dusky Iron Meditation cups the stone heart in both hands. Magic swirls through his fingers. When he holds the stone out to you it is changed, turned clear and glows slightly. 'Now, take this to an Udex. They will understand the contract involved, you will not, so do not try.'

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

Step 5 Task Window:
-- NULL

// Head over to the NPC "Udex Ivory Wind Tyrant"
// Upon hand in ...

You have been given: Clear Heart of Unfettered Stone
Your task 'Key to the Kingdom' has been updated.
Udex Ivory Wind Tyrant peers into the stone and looks intent. After a moment the Udex says, 'You are the agent of this Dusky Iron Meditation, I see it in the contract. Tell your master that I grant his right to payment and authorize a mandate to enforce it. This contract shall serve as warrant.'

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

Step 6 Task Window:
-- Speak with Dusky Iron Meditation about his success and your contract with him.

Your task 'Key to the Kingdom' has been updated.
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Ah, well done, I must say. This contract will serve my needs. Come forth and honor your debt!'
(An empowered agent spawns briefly)
An empowered agent says, 'I come. My master acknowledges your right to payment. The full volume of air will be delivered directly to your master in Mearatas shortly.'
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Well, that will help. It is shocking how much air mortals consume. The requirement that we provide livable space for mortals seems like such a waste, but it must be done. How do you waste so much air? Never mind, it is done.'

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

Step 7 Task Window:
-- NULL

You say, 'Hail, Dusky Iron Meditation'
You have been given: Writ of Entry - Esianti
Your task 'Key to the Kingdom' has been updated.
Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Yes, yes, you have done your task well enough.'

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

Step 8 Task Window:
-- NULL

You say, 'Hail, Great Sky Ocean'
Your task 'Key to the Kingdom' has been updated.
[Great Sky Ocean says, 'Well done! With that key you can seek the contract that Moon Serf of Harmonious Heavens must have signed. I can send you there, now that you have the right to enter, when you are ready to take on the [mission] set before you.'

a_furtitive_elemental is stunnable, rootable, and snareable. It is also evidently not social with anything else. It spawned exactly where Reneca's coordinates put it, and roams relatively close to that location.

It took a few tries but I managed to root/nuke it by bringing it to the large island nearby. Since nothing else assists the elemental (including the other elementals), it was just a matter of getting a bit lucky with root holding sufficiently. It would likely be kitable at the same location but as a Wiz we only have AE snare and I couldn't get enough clearance around other mobs to just hit the elemental.

I've done some progression, am backtracking to get this task, and I get this dialogue from an upset dervish:

An upset dervish says, 'Hello, strange creature. Why do you disturb me so? I have much to [think about] right at this moment.'
You say, 'think about'
An upset dervish says, 'I did something wrong. I did a thing for one of the earth, took it up to the tower. It wanted to see around before returning to its master. But then it [fell].'
You say, 'fell'
An upset dervish says, 'It fell. I guess it was not part of the air, and so would not be supported by it? Or that it was part of the earth and was drawn to it, very quickly drawn to it. It was turned into smaller versions of itself, but none of those could speak. And it stayed in one place until the [water being] came, and then until you came and took what the water left.'
You say, 'water being'
An upset dervish says, 'It came upon the small pieces of earth and took away from it some smaller piece of earth. It appeared as though it was doing as it should not, seemed worried that I would try to prevent it from taking the piece. Where it went I do not know. Please understand, I did not know that the earth would destroy one of its own like that.'

At this point, nothing happens, no mobs spawn.

I then speak to a hidden mephit and a languishing courier but they won't talk to me:

A hidden mephit says, 'No! A mortal! I can't speak with you!'
A languishing courier says, 'I cannot be bothered by you now, I am relaxing.'

Frustrating.

Having the same thing happen. . .can't get anything to happen. Been making progress but only because there was already Furtive mobs and confused mud elementals on track. Maybe they can only spawn in certain quantities or maybe talking to the NPCs is completely pointless. Also, talking to the NPCs might be class related. Talking to the hidden mephit as an SK does nothing but when my shaman talks to him I get to go through the text (not that it actually did anything but he graced me with his words at least).

Did this on 2 tons. After taking to the unpset dervish, the furtive elemental spawned on the small island on the SW side.

After finishing Brass Palace and talking to Great Sky Ocean, go to Dusky Iron Meditation. at
P 646.9178, 360.5342, 238.1304, 0, 0, 240, 2, Dusky_Iron_Meditation(Q)

* At completion, you will receive Vindicator of The Burning Lands and you will be able to enter Esianti.
* Task is not repeatable.

[Thu Dec 13 11:10:21 2018] You say, 'Hail, Dusky Iron Meditation'
[Thu Dec 13 11:10:21 2018] Dusky Iron Meditation says, 'Ah, a mortal. Stratos seems infected with them now.'

Say 'key to Esianti' to get him to talk to you and go through the text - or just say "accept".

1) Find Dusky Iron Meditation's servant, Unfettered Stone. This is a groundspawn that can be found in 3 different places. Looting it will give you a "Pile of Rubble"

2) Return the remains of Unfettered Stone to Dusky Iron Meditation. Turn it in.

From now on, there are 3 different versions depending on what groundspawn you loot:

Version 1:
3) Find out how Unfettered Stone died

Add this to your map file.
P 334.8300, -124.3009, 185.2687, 240, 240, 240, 1, GROUNDSPAWN 1
P 344.1602, -83.7442, 185.8832, 0, 0, 240, 1, An_upset_dervish
P 101.4604, 168.6093, 150.4017, 0, 0, 240, 1, a_furtitive_elemental (roams)

* Loot groundspawn 1
* Hand it back in to Dusky Iron Meditation
* Go hail An Upset Dervish and follow the text.
* This spawns a_furtitive_elemental, kill it, and loot Gemstone Heart of Unfettered Stone

4) Return the Gemstone Heart of Unfettered Stone to Dusky Iron Meditation.
* He gives it back as a Clear Heart of Unfettered Stone to you.

5) Bring Dusky Iron Meditation's evidence to an Udex and convince them to hear his case
Go to the big island with a lake on and hand the stone in
P -957.4033, -8.1709, 277.3938, 0, 0, 240, 1, Udex_(Q)

6) Give the warrant stone to Dusky Iron Meditation so that the contract can be completed
* Go back to Dusky Iron Meditation and hail him.
[Thu Dec 13 11:22:53 2018] You have been given: Writ of Entry - Esianti

* Then go to Great Sky Ocean and hail her (don't recall the exact description of the step.)
[Thu Dec 13 11:24:05 2018] You say, 'Hail, Great Sky Ocean'
[Thu Dec 13 11:24:06 2018] Your task 'Key to the Kingdom' has been updated.
[Thu Dec 13 11:24:06 2018] Great Sky Ocean says, 'Well done! With that key you can seek the contract that Moon Serf of Harmonious Heavens must have signed. I can send you there, now that you have the right to enter, when you are ready to take on the [mission] set before you.'
[Thu Dec 13 11:24:07 2018] You have completed achievement: Vindicator of The Burning Lands (Group)

* Saying [mission] will give you a shared task "Contract of war"


Version 2 & 3

There's 2 more groundspawns - they will give you an other version than the one above.
* The steps are different from above
* The mob to hail and kill are different -

Version 2 (this might be a mix up between version 2 & 3, so please confirm it)
