Opening Dialog

Shuthoth tells you, "Welcome, friend. I seek warriors in search of great adventure. I represent one who would grant the Isparians of this world much power, much knowledge."

Shuthoth tells you, "She has found something. Something powerful beneath the waves of this world. A city, ancient and doomed. The blue-skinned King did his part to raise it from the deep, but I daresay he could not have done it alone."

Shuthoth tells you, "Now that the island exists, the lady would ask Dereth's hunters and adventurers to explore its mysteries."

Shuthoth tells you, "If you seek such a challenge, I bid you take this gem and place it within the empty eye of one of Aerlinthe's Watchers. The Watchers will tell you what else you must do."

Shuthoth tells you, "You have the spark of adventure within you. Good luck, my friend."

Shuthoth gives you Watcher Token.
Using the Devastated Watcher

The Watcher looks down on you, a glint in its one good eye. There appears to be something missing from the other eye socket.
Giving the Watcher Token to the Devastated Watcher

You give Devastated Watcher Watcher Token.

The gem clicks into place within the Watcher's empty eye socket. The statue hums to life and looks down upon you. You hear a whisper in your mind, "Appease the Gatekeepers," then all grows quiet.

Devastated Watcher teleports you with Devastated Access.

Shemza tells you, "A warrior! A warrior comes! Brothers, feast your eyes on one who would give their lives willingly to the great lord!"

Shemza tells you, "You seek to bask in the glory of Grael, do you not? You seek to join us in the worship of he who is more powerful, more glorious, than all who have come before? My brothers and I, we were the first to join his side. We were there when he led us to victory over the old ones. We helped him slay the mages and lay waste to their cities. We were there when he led an army upon the heretics of the light."

Shemza tells you, "When defeat fell upon us, we knew that our ascendance was only delayed. One day, we knew that our god would rise from the depths and claim that which is his. And we knew that ones such as you would seek to free him from his chains."

Shemza tells you, "And now you are here. You seek to barter with us who have given our souls in exchange for life eternal. Those of us who have lengthened our lives for the sole purpose of delivering warriors unto him."

Shemza tells you, "Yes. You are here now. And now you will aid me. And then you will aid my brothers."

Shemza tells you, "I seek a boon. One small boon. The masters of the portal carry a token of golden hue. A token that I would claim as mine own. Find it and deliver it to me. Then the first part of your quest shall begin."

Shemza tells you, "I have altered your body. You may now use our portal near Ayan Baqur."

Handing in Sezzherei's Lair to Lurza

You give Lurza Sezzherei's Lair.

Lurza tells you, "The demon Sezzherei once called himself our brother. But when he betrayed our lord to the ancient mages, he fell from Grael's favor. Our brother Tursh slew Sezzherei on the battlefield, or so we all believed. Now he claims the dark as his master, and seeks to appease its twisted whims."

Lurza tells you, "Sezzherei will once again know the taste of his own blood. When Grael rises and marches across this land, Sezzherei will kneel once again."

Handing in Swamp Stone to Rhujun

You give Rhujun Swamp Stone.

Flame Guardian

Flame Guardian tells you, "Welcome to my lonely isle, little one. You seek the mysteries of Vissidal, do you not? Many have come before you. Many will follow in your footsteps. The power which once lay dormant beneath the waves has surfaced. I fear the new rulers of this world will regret their meddling before all is done."

Flame Guardian tells you, "You seek a boon from me, do you not? You seek my permission to further your quest?"

Flame Guardian tells you, "You must prove yourself, little one. You must bathe in the cleansing waters of the deep. You must destroy the spirits of Water that lay claim to this isle."

You have killed 5 Water Golems! Your task is complete!

Flame Guardian tells you, "The waters of the deep cover your flesh. You have been cleansed. I sense the spirit of Grael about you. I deem you worthy, little one."
