You have discovered a troubling notice on one of the more powerful Void-creatures found in the Obelisk of Lost Souls. It speaks of 'a shifting' and the need to have 'suitable hosts prepared and ready'. You must infiltrate this 'vestibule' at the heart of the Obelisk and delay whatever scheme is at play here.
From the zone-in, go straight forward and up the stairs on your left. Enter the room and slay The Medium of Hykor. ( -477, 407, 396 ) /waypoint -477, 407, 396
Backtrack, go down the other passageway near the entrance, and enter the room at the end. ( -529, 371, 400 ) /waypoint -529, 371, 400
Interact with the pile of sacks at ( -532, 371, 408 ) /waypoint -532, 371, 408 to receive an unconscious goblin. Left-click on one of the tables in the room to place the goblin on it. Do this for each of the six tables. Placing the item on one of the tables will spawn a shadowedman seed.
After around one minute, the first shadowedman seed will die and spawn a goblin with two adds. Kill them to make another shadowedman seed spawn at the next table. Repeat this process until all six possessed goblins are dead.
After the final goblin dies, Bovauk or Malisient will spawn at the back of the room.
The information below has been verified with in-game data and the information on this page is correct, even if it looks stupid or makes no sense.Fact: You do need to complete the access quest to get past the second door. The sacks in the alcove can't be interacted with otherwise.
