What does this information mean?


This is the start of the two-part access quest you need to get to the Terror (lvl 75 epic x2) for Guardian and Monk Epic wepons. You need to kill all of the fetid fiends around each bone tower to spawn each named. If you don't get the message "You feel a presence nearby", then some fiends are left. Once the nameds are defeated you have to loot Heart of Fear and Corrupted Mind from the skull in the middle of each tower.

NOTE: The Heart of Fear and Corrupted Mind are TEMPORARY NO-ZONE, so if you zone out, or camp out, you will need to revisit the towers to pick them up again.

NOTE: The Heart of Fear and Corrupted Mind are collected from a ground spawn, that looks like the thumbnail to the right
