Starting the QuestEdit


  • You can group to complete this, though it is not a necessity.
  • How to clear the zone and defeat Danak:
    • You only need to battle all sentient creatures that can attack you. It is not necessary to kill the (non-aggro) tomes or to open the coffins in the zone. This includes the upper level, which is accessed by turning right in the first large room and heading upstairs.
    • When battling Danak, he will become immune to your attacks periodically. Click the colored glowies (similar in style to collectible shines) to damage him again. Just prepare for possible "adds" since an imp might spawn to help him.
    • !!Important!! if one does NOT immediately turn in their quest to The Grand Prankster, the book will continue to allow access to the instance. Repopulation occurs on re-entry, beasties and shinies both!


  1. Click on the large book next to The Grand Prankster to enter the instance A Sinister Place in the Emerald Jungle.
  2. In order to continue down the large main hall beyond the first room, you must clear the leastest/lesser Initiate of The Arisen.
    • This will remove the carved guard that was preventing you from processing further.
  3. When you come to the room with Firiona Vie, defeat Danak Dhorentath (see notes above).
  4. Proceed to the furthest room in the back and smash the vases until you get Danak's magical shackle keys.
  5. Return to the room with Firiona Vie and click on her to free "her".
  6. Exit and return to The Grand Prankster.
