Opening Dialog

Mekhmet tells you, "The Grand Mother must have sent you. Yes, I know how much you helped the people of Silyun. Now that Silyun has formally allied with Queen Elysa, their cause is our cause."

Mekhmet tells you, "If you would seek to defeat the tyrant Varicci, journey to the Shade Iron Mine in a cavern south of here, along the coast at 65.0 S, 87.6W."

Mekhmet tells you, "The Viamontians have been extracting a metal known as Shade Iron there. This is the metal they crafted the foul blade Heartbreaker with. We must know more about it, so I would ask you to obtain a sample of the ore. The ore is difficult to properly extract. I suspect you will have to take a proper tool from the Viamontian mages in the mine who collect the ore."
Handing in Shade Iron Ore Sample

You give Mekhmet Shade Iron Ore Sample.

You've earned 1,500,000 experience.

Mekhmet gives you Whispering Blade Boots.

Mekhmet tells you, "This is the mysterious metal, is it? I cannot say it seems all that menacing to me, but there are people more clever than I who are waiting to analyze it. Thank you, you have helped us immensely. I will remember your service. If you seek to further aid our cause, speak to Harkwull, here in Ayan Baqur."
