Prerequisite Quests: Soldier of Air, Fight Fire, and any one Trial of Smoke, Prisoner's Dilemma, Palace of Embers, Brass Palace, Key to the Kingdom, Contract of War, All Hail the King, Royal Visits, and Tyrant of Fire.

This task starts with Blazing Sorrow's Darkness in Aalishai near the castle on the outside.

You say, 'Hail, Blazing Sorrow`s Darkness'

Blazing Sorrow`s Darkness says, 'You. How is your progress going. Have you found a way to gain the object we [require] as you promised Lord Fennin Ro? Do not waste my time our yours with idle chat.'

You say, 'require'

You have been assigned the task 'Enter Mearatas'.




The steps will sometimes be in a different order so the below might not match what you see in your quest window. Report what you get and I can compile the different orders together.


  • 1. Find a way into Mearatas 0/1 Aalishai: Palace of Embers

    Task Window: You have been asked, perhaps commanded, by the Tyrant of Fire to obtain one of the molds used to create the jann. The duende appear to have one unused, and so you must somehow find a way into their castle called Mearatas, Palace of Stone.

    The beings you speak with will have to not feel you are an enemy.

    No real suggestions were given, perhaps you can just ask people in Aalishai and someone will know.

    /say enter mearatas to the trash mobs on the east side of the zone until you get an update. The trash mobs then will tell you to speak to Glance of Sky.


  • 2. Convince Glance of Sky to tell you the name of someone that may know how to get into The Stone Demesne. 0/1 Aalishai: Palace of Embers

    Task Window: Glance of Sky says that she knows someone that might know a way into Mearatas.


    You say, 'Hail, Glance of Sky'

    Glance of Sky nods, 'You must be the one I was told about. Well, you want into The Stone Demesne. I am just the person you need. I know someone that might be able to assist you in finding a way in. However, information is my trade, my livelihood. So I must ask you to [do something] for me in exchange.'

    You say, 'do something'

    Glance of Sky says, 'I may have just the thing for a murderous mortal like you. I need someone killed. Bring to me the head of Dread Last Guardian and I will tell you what I know.'

    Dread Last Guardian is NW of the palace proper and has a fast respawn timer. Upon turning in the head she will tell you either.

    - Glance of Sky says, 'You have done as I asked. You should speak with Ivory Flume.'
    - Glance of Sky says, 'You have done as I asked. You should speak with Obsidian Bitterness.

    depending on which steps you haven't done.


  • 3. Convince Obsidian Bitterness to tell you the name of someone that may know how to get into The Stone Demesne. 0/1 Aalishai: Palace of Embers

    Task Window: Obsidian Bitterness has claimed that he might have the name of someone that can help you on your task.

    Obsidian Bitterness says, 'I can't tell you from any other of your kind, but you must be the creature I was told to expect. You want access to the Demesne, do you? I may know someone that can help you with that. You will not be surprised that I will need something from you. There is a being, one called Flowing Cloud, due to be brought before the Udex here. All you must do is deliver a message to the Udex who will be trying the case. Deliver it, and I will give you the name.'

    He gives you Sealed Copper Note to hand to one of the Udex that spawn in the palace proper. There are up to 4 udex in the palace up at any time (they spawn in the round towers on the corners).

    There are four spawn spots for the Udex but at least ten different NPCs:

    Udex Ashen Moon Havoc
    Udex Black Iron Sky
    Udex Cold Iron Glance
    Udex First and Forsaken Mind
    Udex Fluttering Shadow Serf
    Udex Hidden Ro Silhouette
    Udex Invincible Jade Guardian
    Udex Master of Bronze
    Udex Obsidian Sage Monolith
    Udex Screaming Oblivion Dance

    Be wary of the other mobs in the room if you are KoS there, they will agro. We mezzed and blurred them to get thru quicker without unnecessary faction hits. Randomly the Udex path away and despawn to be replaced by other Udex. Hailing them will result in either "I know nothing about this Flowing Cloud and would tell you nothing if I did" (wrong response and if you hand him the note he will say "Hmm... I will impound this. This will insure that you don't try something foolish")

    Eventually one will say "I will not speak about anyone appearing before me in my capacity as Udex." Hand him the note, he will return it. Or hand them the note if they say this, 'What i[t] this?' The Udex pulls open the note. 'If you are trying to influence my judgment, nothing you can offer me will do so.' Flames dance on the Udex's hands and melt the words, whatever they were, from the surface.'

    Return to Obsidian Bitterness and give him back the Opened Copper Note and he responds with " You have done as I asked. You should speak with _____ (whichever step you have not completed.)


  • 4. Convince Ivory Flume to tell you the name of someone that may know how to get into The Stone Demesne. 0/1 Aalishai: Palace of Embers

    Task Window: Ivory Flume claims to know someone that might be able to get you into Mearatas.

    You say, 'Hail, Ivory Flume'

    Ivory Flume says, 'You are the one that was mentioned to me. You seek entry into a place you have no right to. I may know someone that can assist you. But of course you must pay for that information. All I require is one small stone. If you can find a way to liberate that stone from the one that holds it and deliver it to me, I will gladly give you the name. The stone is in the hands of one called Eyes Unconquered. Do not harm him, for harm to him will reduce the value of the stone.' (Go find Eyes Unconquered in the South East part of the zone)

    You say, 'Hail, Eyes Unconquered'

    Eyes Unconquered says, 'So, Ivory Flume sent you. I can tell, she has been after that contract for a while now. I'll tell you a truth, I don't want the contract anymore, and so would give it to her. But it is, after all, a contract. I am bound by it until it is completed. This binds me to that idiot Hidden Dust.' Eyes Unconquered begins to grow a sly smile. 'It's too bad that Hidden Dust doesn't just die already. If the contract were broken by, say, horrible murder, then I would be free to give it to anyone I chose. Just an idle thought. Perhaps you should go think about your own future.'

    Hidden Dust is located between the palace and the "moat" to the southwest. Kill him and loot The Head of Hidden Dust. He also is on a fast respawn timer.

    Turn in The Head of Hidden Dust to Eyes Unconquered

    Eyes Unconquered says, 'Well, what unusual fortune. You have discovered that Hidden Dust is dead, and I have discovered that I no longer need this stone.' Take the stone (Glowing Ice Stone) and turn in to Ivory Flume and she will either send you to whichever step you haven't done or

    When you have finished all 3 steps the last one will tell you

    'Ah, well, you have given me what I need, so I shall give you the name you asked for. Obsidian Sundering Master may know a way into the city of the duende. She usually does business in Esianti.

    May I suggest to the people whom write the steps that they add to the first step that people need to speak to the trash mobs on the east side of the zone. People doing the quest need to /say enter mearatas to the trash mobs until the get an update that will tell them to speak to glance of sky. People shouldnt begin by speaking to glance of sky. Begin by speaking to the trash mobs on the east side of zone saying enter mearatas until they get an update.

    You can preloot the heads while waiting for the right Udex.

    If you dont want to clear the four rooms were the Udex spawn you can pull them out. Snare them and pull out of room, then clear aggro. They will speak to you outside room, even if they are pathing on their own. I dont think killing them will make respawn faster. Also when you get the right one everyone in group can make the turnin to the same Udex. Dont be surprised if you spend hours doing this part, it can be a real time sink to get the right one.

    Step 1: start in the huts on the east side of the zone and the huts to start with are the ones closest to palace where 8 npc residents live. they are not people like the quest will state.

    Select one and /say enter mearatas

    Group members needs to be patient and not spam, just have one hail all 8 npc's in those huts to see if they get an update. Then have the next person cycle behind them and cycle again, and again, until they get the update. wash, rinse, and repeat...

    If no update, then check to make sure you spelled /say enter mearatas cause we had a person fail to type it correctly and it made for a very long experience.

    Step 2: you can follow the quest line, but depending on your faction hits, you may want to go to each of the two named and kill them for their heads.

    Named: Dread Last Guardian and Hidden Dust
    Strat: Nothing special, hack and slash with a lot of hp's. Bring a slower or you will be healing a lot.

    Now, do the quest hails and turn-ins and they will ask for a head or note, which you will get from Obsidian Bitterness, you don't have to kill the Udex if you have time.

    After you give the person what they want, you will then randomly get to either kill another for a head or collection of notes.

    That's it!

    I am not sure if the writeup on this page is out of order, or if the quest order happens at random . I did it last night, and the order that I did it in was as follows:

    1. Find a way into Mearatas 0/1 Aalishai: Palace of Embers
    I used the above step with hailing the earth mobs (a living rampart) in Aalishai.
    (Wrong response) "I don't know anything about that. Go bother someone else."
    (Right response) "You might learn something from an ondine called Ivory Flume. It was over in Ten Thousand Radiant Pools."

    2. Convince Ivory Flume to tell you the name of someone that may know how to get into The Stone Demesne. 0/1 Aalishai: Palace of Embers

    3. Convince Glance of Sky to tell you the name of someone that may know how to get into The Stone Demesne. 0/1 Aalishai: Palace of Embers
    Glance of Sky would not talk to me until I did steps 1 and 2 as I listed.

    4. Convince Obsidian Bitterness to tell you the name of someone that may know how to get into The Stone Demesne. 0/1 Aalishai: Palace of Embers

    Do NOT be grouped for the initial hails. Even if you are all exactly at the same spot in the quest, it seems to bug it. Only the earth-pet type mobs gave updates even though other mobs will respond with the correct quest texts. Glance of Sky is on top of one of the platforms. The named have a LOT of HP. I also found that the quest, when auto-given to me was buggy. I had to drop and re-get manually and then it went much better. Good luck!

    The task appears to only have 2 steps at first. However, as you "convince" each NPC the other steps will open up and sometimes, appear out of sequence (you may get Step 4 first and once done, Step 2 may appear, etc.).

    Anyway... items are:

    -"The Head of Hidden Dust" (looted from Hidden Dust and given to Eyes Unconquered)
    - "Glowing Ice Stone" (given to you by Eyes Unconquered and turned in to Ivory Flume for the step update)

    -"The Head of Dread Last Guardian" (looted from Dread Last Guardian and given to Glance of Sky for the update).

    -"Sealed Copper Note" from Obsidian Bitterness
    -Hail Udex's until you get the right response and give them the Sealed Copper Note and get back an "Open Copper Note."
    --Give the Open Copper Note to Obsidian Bitterness for the step update.

    on the firs tstep, if the earth mob doesnt respond of gives you the response you expect from hailing the mob a second time, drop the task and start over, its bugged and you wont get the update. Fortunately the quest giver is in zone and its not too painful after you figure out what's going on.

    solo task

    1. Find a way into Mearatas. (aalishai: Palace of Embers)


    We did this task as a group and while we all had the same steps they were not in the same order. If you are in a group you can preloot the 2 heads needed before that part of the task is active in your task window and turn them in when you get to that step. Glance of Sky conned threateningly but responded to the quest dialogue cues and turn ins properly updated the task, The others went thru normal dialogue.

    2. Convince Glance of Sky to tell you the name of someone that may know how to get into The Stone Demesne. (Aalishai: Palace of Embers)
    (need quest text here but basically she wants you to kill Dread Last Guardian and give her his head. He is NW of the palace proper and has a fast respawn timer.)
    upon turning in the head she will tell you either
    Glance of Sky says, 'You have done as I asked. You should speak with Ivory Flume.'
    Glance of Sky says, 'You have done as I asked. You should speak with Obsidian Bitterness.
    depending on which steps you havent done.

    3. Convince Obsidian Bitterness to tell you the name of someone that may know how to get into The Stone Demesne. (Aalishai: Palace of Embers)
    Obsidian Bitterness says, 'I can't tell you from any other of your kind, but you must be the creature I was told to expect. You want access to the Demesne, do you? I may know someone that can help you with that. You will not be surprised that I will need something from you. There is a being, one called Flowing Cloud, due to be brought before the Udex here. All you must do is deliver a message to the Udex who will be trying the case. Deliver it, and I will give you the name.' He gives you a note (need name) to hand to one of the Udex that spawn in the palace proper. There are up to 4 udex in the palace up at any time (they spawn in the round towers on the corners), be wary of the other mobs in the room if you are KoS there, they will agro. We mezzed and blurred them to get thru quicker without unnecessary faction hits. Randomly the Udex path away and despawn to be replaced by other Udex. Hailing them will result in either "I know nothing about this Flowing Cloud and would tell you nothing if I did" (wrong response and if you hand him the note he will say "Hmm... I will impound this. This will insure that you don't try something foolish")

    Eventually one will say "I will not speak about anyone appearing before me in my capacity as Udex." Hand him the note, he will return it.

    return to Obsidian Bitterness and give him back the note and he responds with " You have done as I asked. You should speak with XXX (whichever step you have not completed.)

    4. Convince Ivory Flume to tell you the name of someone that may know how to get into The Stone Demesne. (Aalishai: Palace of Embers)
    You say, 'Hail, Ivory Flume'
    Ivory Flume says, 'You are the one that was mentioned to me. You seek entry into a place you have no right to. I may know someone that can assist you. But of course you must pay for that information. All I require is one small stone. If you can find a way to liberate that stone from the one that holds it and deliver it to me, I will gladly give you the name. The stone is in the hands of one called Eyes Unconquered. Do not harm him, for harm to him will reduce the value of the stone.' (Go find Eyes Unconquered in the South East part of the zone)

    You say, 'Hail, Eyes Unconquered'
    Eyes Unconquered says, 'So, Ivory Flume sent you. I can tell, she has been after that contract for a while now. I'll tell you a truth, I don't want the contract anymore, and so would give it to her. But it is, after all, a contract. I am bound by it until it is completed. This binds me to that idiot Hidden Dust.' Eyes Unconquered begins to grow a sly smile. 'It's too bad that Hidden Dust doesn't just die already. If the contract were broken by, say, horrible murder, then I would be free to give it to anyone I chose. Just an idle thought. Perhaps you should go think about your own future.''
    Hidden Dust is located between the palace and the "moat" to the southwest. Kill him and loot the Head of Hidden Dust. He also is on a fast respawn timer.

    Turn in the head of Hidden Dust to Eyes Unconquered

    Eyes Unconquered says, 'Well, what unusual fortune. You have discovered that Hidden Dust is dead, and I have discovered that I no longer need this stone.' Take the stone (name needed) and turn in to Ivory flume and she will either send you to whichever step you havent done or

    When you have finished all 3 steps the last one will tell you

    'Ah, well, you have given me what I need, so I shall give you the name you asked for. Obsidian Sundering Master may know a way into the city of the duende. She usually does business in Esianti.
