Note: While in Crow's Resting Place, consider speaking to the bartender and buying the two language primers for Guktan and Koada'Dal if you don't have them already. You'll need the languages for future parts of the quest.
Locate the Gully of the Ursa Rhym (near chess board and beehive looking things) in NW Greater Faydark at ( 621, 10, -234 ) /waypoint 621, 10, -234 and examine the 5 items there (closeups of all pictures are on the talk page):
Talk to Inspector Berlok Beeglesnoop at ( -648, 175, 1079 ) /waypoint -648, 175, 1079. He is quite insane, but constant reminders of his youth will get you through his quest dialogue. Answers to the dialogue are the following:
What did you do in your youth?
I wish I could be a great investigator like you were in your youth.
When you were young you must have been a great writer.
I think reading helps you stay young.
When you were young, did you ever get lost?
In your younger days, you must have taught the Gnomeland Security all you know.
Were you this crazy when you were young or is this an old age thing?
I am the general of Felwithe.
When you were young, you must have seen some splendid shields.
The first 3 clues are called scorched armor plates. The second 3 clues are scorched daggers (pictures of both are on the talk page).
Speak to the rat Chypp, with a silent P, at ( -356, 110, 389 ) /waypoint -356, 110, 389. After you finish the dialog 2 lvl 61 skeletons will spawn and 4 Raiders of Ree further down the canyon. (You don't need to kill them). For me the 4 Raiders were 63^^ Heroic.
Head to the Wailing Caves in CL and collect 6 pieces of dark elf evidence in the Ree Orc storerooms ( -41, -33, -92 ) /waypoint -41, -33, -92.
