What does this information mean?


  1. You must find a way to animate the tome. You do this by placing it into The Anvil of Animatus in the Chamber of Animation. This is to the east of the Mouth of the Sanctum-167, 136, 41 ) Copy.
  2. This spawns an NPC version of the book who tells you to kill a scaleborn animator (Animator named will update your quest) and 3 a sentinel builders. All of these spawn in the same room.
  3. After you've done this you have to examine the two pools in the room
  4. Return to the Shade of Bylze12, 157, -40 ) Copy for your reward and a very revealing twist regarding the shade's true identity.

NOTE: You will need the Disk of Bylze to respawn the shade. If you destroyed it you will need to return and reopen the chest that dropped it in the quest Burglars Afoot. Location of the chest is in Tenebrous Tangle ( 563, -147, 641 ) Copy. Just inspect the chest to get a new one.
