Enter the West Freeport Militia Building, go down the stairs to the jail (the door is on your right as you enter the building) and hail Kaherdin Surechest128, -25, 136 ) Copy. You won't get the journal entry until the next step.

  1. Take Valeron Dushire's Testimony to Blurrp Braveblade in The Lesser Faydark-261, -67, 371 ) Copy, standing on a rock in the river near the Fae Court. He will then send you to the Celestial Watch in North Qeynos to speak to Priestess Wenhaver.
  2. Speak to Priestess Wenhaver in North Qeynos at the Temple of Life576, -75, -223 ) Copy.
    • Priestess Wenhaver will tell you to go to a "dark and untamed" place in Kunark and look for a sign of Marr.
  3. You must have 40,000+ Synod Reet Faction and have completed the language quest A Mysterious Green Tome. Do the sub-quest A Reet's Freedom. Make sure you complete the last steps: killing 12 Sathirians and talking to the Captain again.
    • These steps are contained in the subquest walkthrough, but it is important to get them done before leaving the instance, so they are put in both walkthroughs.
  4. Return to Priestess Wenhaver in North Qeynos at the Temple of Life10, -4, -11 ) Copy. (This step is not required.)
  5. Go to the Kunzar Jungle and fly to The Abandoned Village-185, 10, -112 ) Copy. You should dismount and walk east until you see an ethereal sword sticking out of the ground ( -700, 30, -175 ) Copy. Walk around the area until a shaft of light comes down and begins quest dialogue with you. You will be stunned at or around ( -695, 39, -226 ) Copy and it will initiate a conversation between you and a spirit, which tells you to find The Truth of Marr. Just keep walking around until the light comes, the location is up the hill from the sword and to the west. There will be a completed quest icon on your map at the correct location.
  6. Return to Priestess Wenhaver in North Qeynos (this step is required).
    • The priestess tells you a bit about The Truth of Marr and recommends that you to go find Izzal Din, a historian of holy lore and relics.
    • Izzal will ignore you unless you have a Faygannen Bloom, so there is no need to visit him just yet.
  7. Travel to the Somborn Cemetery in Loping Plains, where you will find four linked 80^^ or 81^^ Treasure looters hiding behind the crypts. Loot them for a Faygannen Bloom. The bloom is an uncommon body drop, which you need to take to Izzal Din.
  8. Travel to Jarsath Wastes near Tylix's Fist ( -689, -108, -854 ) Copy and speak with Izzal Din. He tells you a bit more lore and informs you that the Iksars have been using an item of malevolence to inflict pain in their worship of Cazic-Thule. You are told to search for this item somewhere in Kunark.
  9. Enter the Shard of Fear in the Feerrott and defeat Terror. Loot the Mark of Terror which is needed for the next step of the quest. This is the final boss, so you will need to obtain the skulls and hearts from the three bone towers and two sacrificial wells. Only one Mark will drop from Terror, so if there are two Paladins in your group which need the same update, you will need to make a second run after your timers reset.
  10. Go to the Tabernacle of Pain in Kunzar Jungle and hail a Swifttail caste servant-250, -62, 181 ) Copy. Just standing there for a little while can also trigger the fight.
    • Grandmaster Kordaz (level 81^) will spawn immediately in front of the servant. Attack him quickly or he will despawn. If the Grandmaster despawns, wait a few minutes and he may reappear.
    • The Grandmaster will cast stifles frequently and you may find him difficult to solo, depending on your gear. Bring friends, or a healer mercenary, as well as a Freedom of Mind potion and/or Signet of Clear Voice to help cure detrimental effects.
    • If you fail, you will lose your Mark of Terror and must kill Terror again for another one!
  11. After Grandmaster Kordaz is dead, talk with a Swifttail caste servant again and she will send you to the Monk Temple of the Grandmasters at Tabernacle, click the sword on the weapons display at ( -110, -39, 190 ) Copy to loot the Malevolent Blade.
  12. Inspect it and you're finished!
