This once lush landscape was cursed by the fury of an angry goddess. Damned spirits of Humans and Elves roam through the ruins of their once beautiful cities, cursed to replay the fateful actions of their final days for eternity. The powerful energy of the curse has drawn several visitors to the hills. A holy order of paladins hopes to cleans the curse and free the damned spirits from their torment. And nearby, a conclave of necromancers hopes to harness the power of the curse and use it for their own malicious plans.

Went here tonight for the first time. Did the "Bigger, Faster, Stronger, Dumber" quest and got 2% per turn in but over all; a very disappointing zone for xp. At 82 the Rampaging Bone Guard was yellow to me. I even played without my AA going and I had a Shared Adventure Potion 1 going. Never got my last 12%; try again another night.

My lvl 77 druid zoned in from Loaping Plains and went right and snared and rooted a deathspore feeder. No problem. snareable and rootable and doesnt summon. snare, root, dot and loot. I got 75 percent toward my next AA point and I have 90 percent going to AAs. then I went just a tad west from zone in cave and nuked an rampaging boneguard, he is social so 3 others joined him. I pulled them all into the zone cave and rooted 1. then zoned . when I came back, he was still rooted and I snared , rooted, dotted and looted. I have 370 AA spread across the specturm. Im not that bad and was able to handle the mobs near the zone.

im level 82 wiz, never been to this place till 3 days ago
ive had no prob soloing in the place as long as i kept it as a 1 on 1 fight
2boxing a 72 enchanter, keep enchanter back a lil ways so wont draw attention to her
pretty easy, ill tag one, pull it back a lil close to her and nuke it down to 70%
then using enchanter to de buff it down
easy dark blue exp and or AA's which either you set your aa mod to do
i can honestly say i havent really scouted into this zone too much
but can say 1 on 1 its ok, more than one with no real knoledge on this place to much you might wana run and come back

Jarvis by the docks offers a quest where you have to go talk to fendel and report back. You can talk to Jarvis again and get the task "The Green Fairy" where you talk to fendel again and he redirects you to old scheffer to obtain some absinthe. Though old scheffer is out of absinthe and he wants you to collect some components from around the zone to make more and return it to fendel. One of the components is fennel I can't remember the others. The preview rewards is greyed out.

First quest-
Speak with jarvis
Speak with fendel
Return to jarvis

The green fairy-
Talk to jarvis
Talk with fendel
Talk to old schaffer
Return the absinthe to fendel
Collect fennel and two other ingrediants
Return to old schaffer

The three items needed are Anise, Fennel, and Grande Wormwood, all of which evidently drop from the Deathspore sleepers and feeders in the southeast corner of the zone.

Not sure if its related, but in the camp with the citizens, we killed a mob called 'a vendor', which gave no XP upon its death. I wonder if its related to this quest somehow.

This qiest start's out by looting a bag from the named Bird " Arak Bladesoar "
Upon looting this bag and opening it from inventory you are automatically assigned this task

The Borrowers

1.) Return the bag of borrowed items to Addle.
2.) Return the bag of borrowed items to Shearon

I turned the bag into Addle and recieved the 2nd task in this series. Not sure what you get if you turn in into Shearon.

2nd task you recieve is

Recoup from the Coop

1.) Loot 8 Borrowed Bones
2.) Deliver 8 borrowed bones to Addle, Minister of the Arcane

This ends the series and grant you a reward window for 3 different options
Deep Obsidian Faycite Shard
Shard has the following stats
AC 2, HPS 9, MANA 9, SVD 2, SVP 2
Slot type 7 and 8
req lvl 70, rec lvl 75
can be placed in all gear EXCEPT charm.

Thsi is an evolving Aug I am guessing since it was a task from hills of shade. I will try to figure out more of it as I can.

There are 2 gnome camps in the zone, Valor, and Bertox something (good/evil i call them). You can get quests and work on them. This is similar to the Hand aug from TSS. Once your faction gets to indifferent with the Bertox camp, you can purchase the combining device from the supplier there.

I havn't finished all 8 of the quests yet. Im assuming it should be an OK aug...and once you finish the ones from the Valor camp maybe they both combine into something better? and maybe there are other aug quests in other zones that make a super aug with like 200+ stats....who knows :) We'll see soon.

Has anyone actually seen Ebontail? I have yet to be able to spawn him by clearing the camp marked on the Mapquest map for this zone.

Does he spawn somewhere else?
