      • Note: It used to be that 'You can FD flop to him and talk to him while you are FD.' but they now have mobs in the room that will generally kill you before you can FD or that see through your FD.' If you target Lharc then walk around the building (you may have to clear one or two mobs) you can hail (H) and receive updates. NOTE I did run in and FD and it worked
    3. He sends you to kill his brother, Glohner in Edgewater Drains.

      • Note: Northern part of your in-game map. Glohner is non-aggro until attacked.
      • He is 85^^^ and has 500k HP.
      • He casts a single target fear on the tank, but does not hit very hard.
  8. After killing Glohner you will be tasked to take the sword back to Lharnc in the City of Mist.
    1. Return to the City of Mist. After hailing Lharnc and a short conversation, he will aggro (85^^^). Be prepared for a rather long fight (he hits hard and has 380k health). Note that Lharnc also uses a charm and target-change ability that causes the tank along with Lharnc to attack another party member. If the party wipes, Lharnc remains attackable and can be pulled from the building without pulling anything else.
    2. Lharnc the Envious will drop a single wooden chest with the Talisman of Envy, a lore, no-trade item. Only one Shadowknight can get this no-trade item at a time. See notes below.

  11. You now must kill 3 Crimson Teir mobs. (Can be done in any order)
    1. Karnor's Castle
      • Tovin D'Rin is in Karnor's Castle Library ( -31, -56, 162 ) Copy.
        • 85^^^ with 3 pets, two 85^^ and one 85. The room will aggro if not cleared. Tovin has 330k health and knockback, and the two 85^^ have 160k each.
    2. Chelsith
      • Talik K'syk and his sister Mydraa K'syk are in Chelsith.
        • They can be found at the last named tentacle's platform ( -419, 30, -33 ) Copy.
        • They are a grouped 85^^^ proximity spawn when you step on the platform. You do not have to kill the last worm/tentacle mob to get them to spawn, but you do need to deactivate his platform's force field to get to the prox spawn area by killing the 4 worms of the adjacent pools.
        • Mydraa is a mage; she can be mezzed and stunned. If you do not have a mezzer, concentrate on killing her first, because she casts silence/stun. If soloing, best to have Harm's Touch ready to knock down her HP as quickly as possible. Talik appears to be pure melee.
    3. Teren's Grasp
      • Jerak T'Shir is at Teren's Grasp.
        • He can be found between two pyramids ( 1831, 480, -1006 ) Copy. He is a 85^^^ proximity spawn, be prepared. He has 407k health and becomes hard to knock down after he is at 20% health.
    • After you have killed the 3 Crimson Teir mobs, you need to return to Atira X'aphon. She will offer you the next step.
  12. Obtain 3 Emblems. ( must be done in order )
    1. The King's Emblem
    2. The Archpriest's Emblem.
      • Locate The Archpriest's Emblem which can be found in Neriak, City of Hate - Spires of Innoruuk (inside main building) and next to Xilania Nevagon-Seraph of Hate, you'll see a skull with a dagger in it that you can click at ( -284, 29, 179 ) Copy.
        • Once everyone has ported up, speak with Dorvias N'Keth who will then turn into a 85^^^. He will spawn immediately by himself. But, occasionally he will spawn a trio of level 85 Minions of Hate to aid him.
        • Emblem is a chest drop, lore item, so if more than Shadowknight in the group you must kill one time for each Shadow Knight.
    3. The Prophet's Emblem
  13. Go to the Darklight Palace in Neriak, City of Hate. Once there, head up to the very top floor and you should see a bed. Look under it and you'll see a box under the bed which will give you an update. ( -579, 87, -192 ) Copy
  14. After clicking the box, head over to Kunzar Jungle and speak with Atira X'aphon inside City of Jinisk again.
