  1. Find out what happened to Ritter Shortshank:
    1. Find Shortshank's grave in the Coldwind Shores Cemetery in the Thundering Steppes1362, -1, -70 ) Copy. Dig up the grave and take the note from the coffin.
    2. Read "Ritter's Confession" in your inventory.
  2. Find more about Everling Village by locating the Journal of Samantha Rageshree in the library of Nektropos Castle-19, 14, 52 ) Copy. This appears as a glowing book on the center shelves.

    2. Continue to talk to Abelard Raleigh. He will refuse to give up Dalmat's tome and attack as a level 80^.
    3. Attempt to kill Abelard Raleigh to take the tome by force. If he disappears after you kill him and you haven't gotten the update wait for him to re spawn and kill him again until you get the update. (He will not become active for the update right when you hail him, so if you have a merc, dismiss him, as he will be killed too quickly)
    4. Return to Dalmat Rageshree in the Ruins of Varsoon and speak with him.
  5. Find the grave of Alexander Simond's wife, as indicated in the Simond's book:
    1. Inspect the grave of Yasinia Simond in Nektulos Forest behind Nektropos Castle-1627, 117, -1852 ) Copy.

  7. Gather the materials needed to create Siv'ajauhar's Kiss:

      • Note: Durus Decapitators, Durus scar guardians, etc are located in Jarsath Wastes563, -60, -37 ) Copy There are approximately 42 of them in the Howling Stones chasm. Chrono to level 80 and run through with a merc to get the updates quickly. Two runs shouid yield enough for the quest.

    • Collect 10 pieces of smoldering material. These also can now be bought or harvested and come from any T8 node.
      • NOTE: You can save a lot of money on these steps by buying ONE mantrap root or smoldering material, putting it on your broker, and taking it back out until you have all of the updates.(for bronze/silver player on the EQX server, you can just put them in to your guild storage box and remove them to get the update, as well.)
