Premonitions of the Fourth Sending of Darkness

Rec. Level: 50+
Type: Solo
Starts At: Ancient Lighthouse at 3.9N, 72.5W
Route: From Fort Tethana
Repeat: None

Overview

An old quest added during the first event, the Sudden Season. Its rewards are only knowledge of the events of the past and those which were to come, the Fourth Sending of Darkness.

The Lightless Catacombs and Small Icecave were repopulated with stronger creatures in later events, and are thus more difficult. The Ancient Lighthouse and Disaster Maze may have the original creatures, but several monster rebalances may have made some more difficult. In addition, all dungeons are in areas that are not survivable for lower levels - the Dires and the Lost Wish Range. It is recommended you run this quest with a higher level character than it was initially designed for.

  • Portions of this quest require Lockpicking and keys.
