Starting the Quest[]

All eligible players will receive a Vigilant Sanctum Key in their Norrathian Mail inbox from Head Scholar Nabihan. Examine the key and "hold the key firmly" to be teleported to The Duality's Vigilant Sanctum and speak with The Duality. If your character has just made level 110, be sure to get at least the starter gear from Myrist, the Great Library, unless you want to die a most painful death. Edit may 2021: Go to Blinding and get the chest there, for higher resolve

NOTE: It is recommended that you complete these 3 Signature Questlines first, so you can make sense of some of the information in this questline. If you dont care for reading the dialogue, then you don't need to do them. Do the Shattered Seas: Refuge Return (the Tranquil/Phantom seas), Legacy of Power: Secrets in an Arcane Land (Plane of Magic), and Elements of Destruction: Pursuit of Justice (Myrist).
