Reyfin Malakwa will reward you with your class specific level 65 spell or discipline in exchange for a Chaos Rune.

Chaos Runes drop in upper tier Gates of Discord zones such as Qvic or Inktu'ta. They are no drop, and each class only gets one reward so there is no reason to do this quest more than once.
nice spell

Have this spell. Use it all the time AND Z-bite, groups love the mana and when there's mobs around that AE the free HP is nice. With our crit heal AAs get nearly one crit heal every cast, giving that person 600 HP (or 400 with Z-bite).
In my guild so far almost every one of the chaos runes have gone to eather SKs for this spell or shammies for thier canni.
In exp groups clerics love when I use this and z-bite, they have mana comin' outa thier ***. Was grouped with a cleric in Walls of Slaughter who was CHing me at 95% for lack of any way to spend all her mana (had me using both taps, a necro using thier mana tap, a chanter with C6 & a bard).
In kiting groups in Fire necros love when I use this spell, they no longer have to worry about healing them selves from lich's damage an' the extra mana means more dps.
Overall this is a hell of a nice spell and well worth it if you can get it. Good job on this one Sony.
Where is this spell?

The spell sucks.

One, the mana recourse is only 10 points above the Zev Bite. Nothing to smile about.

Two, a recast time of 60 seconds for a 300 hitpoint heal is quite honestly a sneeze at GoD fighting levels. Not that 200 hps from Zev Bite has anyone going wow either.

Three, the resist is the same as Zev Bite. So this ANCIENT BITE is still resisted by the same mobs as before (sand giants in BOT for example). Ancient spells should bring something a bit more to the table.

What needs to be done is adjust the resist to make the spell irrestible. THEN you can say the spell is an upgrade to Zev Bite.

Oh silence you. This spell rox. Only place it's resisted it places where the mobs are totally immune to disease. And this doesn't have to replace z-bite, can use both together with GREAT effect.

Zeefer's is an excellent spell with many uses. Okay, so 100 mana doesn't seem like THAT much, but it's an extra 100 mana, and if you hit Zeefer's every time it pops up, it's damn useful. It adds up. It also helps to top off the group during AE fights, and the like.

And the biggest advantage is combining them. Combine 3 sk's in a group. Every 60 seconds, you get about 750 damage, using IDIV, and healf the group for 600 EACH, and 300 mana each. It's damn useful.
Nice

As hard as I am sure this spell is to get, or at least the drop for it, I would think it would do a LOT more damage. At lvl 54, we get a 400 point nuke. We also by this time would already have a better lifetap. I am seriously considering quitting on my SK. I am currently lvl 53 with 3 AAs. It has been difficult enough to get THIS high, and i see people breeze by me by getting PL'd. I can't believe SK spells are not better at the GOD level of difficulty. /sigh

Haha is going to be my only negative response to that. This spell will be very usefull when fighting AoE mobs. Group lifetap plus some free mana ... nope never heard anybody tell me to put this spell back in the bag.

Oh stop whining... im 59 and loving it. I cant imagine playing any other character than my sk. Z bite is an awesome spell that in my opinion, doesnt need upgrading. Be glad we get an upgrade. My friend is a 63 ogre shadow knight, and as soon as i get z bite, the spell will basically be a mana free 200 mana and 400 life for every other party member, if we cast it at the same time.

The reason the spell is weaker than lower level nukes and lifetaps is because the recourse effects the entire group. You cast the spell on the target doing 300hp damage but it gives 300hp and 110 mana to everyone in your group not just yourself. It is a very useful spell and a great upgrade to our most popular spell (Zevfeer's Bite) in groups.

Im 80% sure that this is a GoD spell, and not a ancient(since its not Velious or luclin). Ancient is probly just its name.

I'm damn happy they finally gave sks some good spells. This plus upgrade to Mental Corruption is nice. And a new nuke even. Too bad this is an ancient spell, so prolly gonna be hard as hell to get, especially guildless like most Sks are, me included. Guess I have to get the expansion now and just prey I can get it.
