  • Questname: By the Shieldmaiden

On countless occasions, I have tried to sway the unbridled fury of Ghalnn and his never-ending thirst for the souls of the innocents.

It became evident, centuries ago, that his will is unwavering. His desire for war, carnage, murder, and torture are the building blocks of his being. He is, in common terms, the definition of a monster.

It is because of this that I must put you on a task to defend those which he would slaughter. If you are capable of protecting them, you will have my blessing.

  • Objectives

Venture forth to the alcove of the Avatar of Ghalnn, and protect the victims of Ghalnn from his fury. Be sure that Ghalnn witnesses your actions. Return to the avatar of Gloriann upon your completion. At least five victims of Ghalnn must survive.

  • Rewards

2300 Pantheon of the Ancients faction and over 1 million xp at level 55.

  • Insight

Happens in Chaos Side.

This fight is pretty hectic. There are two waves of adds that spawn, you need to hide around a pillar because when they see someone in group they aggro immediately. The first wave will have I think 6 mobs. I am not sure if the Berseker spawns with the first wave or the second wave, but the berserker needs to be offtanked away from the AoE group. Once the first wave is dead the second will spawn someone needs to go aggro them and bring them back to the AE group. Once these are dead take the Berserker that was being offtanked to the altar of Gloriann and kill him in front of Ghalnn. This is a timed fight so you need quite a bit of AE DPS to complete this.

    • Berserker of Ghalnn is level 54, 5 dots.
    • Warcallers of Ghalnn are level 54, 3 dots. They are the first wave.
    • Minions of Ghalnn are level 54, 4 dots. They are the second wave.

Many believe in power to the strong and simply forget the weak. This is not the way. One may be weaker or not skilled enough - any combination of flaws by which he or she may slow a party down.

We do not simply leave them to fend for themselves, though. We take them under our wing, nourish them, and assist them in becoming stronger and more skilled.

That is what you must do. In the Halls of Chaos, an elder is trapped within the corrupted beings. It is upon your shoulders now to find and bring him here.

  • Objectives

Venture forth to the Halls of Chaos within the Pantheon of the Ancients. Find the trapped Ascended Elder and escort him back to the Avatar of Vothdar.

NOTE: This trial may have been changed, the mob that spawns hits for around 2,500 now, and it appears you cannot clear its agro.

  • Questname: The Forgiven

I am Valus, She Who Imprisons. I am the justice of the deities. I am the impartial.

Even if one were to murder one of your loved ones in cold blood, taking retribution into your own hands is simply not the answer. All must be judged with fairness.

Venture forth to the Halls of Chaos. There lies within the accused prisoners one that was brought forth for murdering women and children in cold blood. This one has been found innocent and you must release them from their shackles.

Choose wisely, as the wrong choice can lead to torment.

  • Objectives
Shakled Prisoners

Release The Correct Prisonner.

Venture forth to the Halls of Chaos. Released the judged prisonner and return to the Avatar of Valus upon completion.

  • Rewards

2300 Pantheon of the Ancients faction and over 1 million xp at level 55.

  • Insight

Happens in Chaos Side.

Run to the far south end of the halls of chaos. There are 5 prisoners. Talk to the prisoners and release one of them. If you release the right one you have completed, if you release the wrong one a mob spawns, you'll have to kill it and go to the next group of prisonners. This quest is soloable (but with a 1/5 success rate).

The text that is the right one seems to be randomised.

Spoiler: usually the right text looks like this.

You have a good natured tint to your soul, but you are not without impurity.

This world has seen many events of evil, treachery, deception, hatred , and manipulation. No longer will I, Vol Anari, the Bring of Flame stand idly by as the impure inherits this world.

It shall be cleansed with haste. Do you have what it takes to bring purity to this world?

  • Objectives

Time Remaining: 00:03:00 (3 minutes)

Cleanse 70 corrupted essences of their impurities before the Avatar of Vol Anari within the Pantheon of the Ancients within the time limit. They must be cleansed fast or they will disperse. Return to his Avatar upon completion.

A bunch of wisp-like mobs will spawn outside the avatars cubicle, amongst the hall roamers. The mobs only stay up briefly but are easy to kill. The entire group must go and kill these as quickly as they can.

The easiest approach is the clear the area outside the cubicle of hall roamers. The 2 Guardians are the hardest. You can mesmerize one while you fight the other. Remember that Guardians use Rust Shield.

After you have cleared, it's possible to use AE's. The Essences will spawn in groups of 5, in a small circle around a pillar of light. If you stand in the center, you can hit them all with a Point blank AE.

Point blank AE's are the easiest, so use Clerics with their blade-shield running, sorcerers with instant cast AE and so on. Rangers with their AE arrows are good too, but you have to clear more roamers if using these.

Visitors. It has been quite some time since I have laid eyes upon any living being within this Pantheon.

The true question is, what are your intentions? Not just anyone is welcome within this place.

  • Questname: Summoning of Vol Tuniel

We have not heard from our Goddess since the God War, but we feel she is alive as her realm still exists. However, it is weakening every year and whatever hope remains is dwindling away.

You must find the Chancellor of the Moon Goddess. She is somewhere in the Halls of Chaos, searching for any clues to Vol Tuniel's whereabouts.

Her life is in jeopardy the longer she remains there. Bring her back here safely.

  • Objectives

Time Remaining: 00:30:00 (30 minutes)

Search to the Halls of Chaos for the Chancellor. Bring her back safely to the Avatar of Vol Tuniel.

Tashini

Happens in Chaos Side.

The group member that will speak to the chancelor will be turned into a fairy, unable to attack, but able to use Energy. The recommandation is to use a Bard for it, as they have reasonable HP and can use songs. The group member that is turned into a fairy will walk at a slow pace (37 speed), and mobs will spawn along the way back to Vol Tuniel. The group must prevent the fairy to be killed.

Mobs will come in 5 different places during the travel.

  1. Assassin / Dark Knight
  2. Firebeat drake / Icelash Drake / Dark Knight
  3. Bloodscale Wyvern / Assassin of Haelifur / Dark Knight of Haelifur
  4. Bloodscale Wyvern / Firebeat Drake / Dark Knight of Haelifur
  5. Bloodscale Wyvern / Assassin of Haelifur / Dark Knight of Haelifur x2

At the end a wingless dragon, Moon Scarred Wyrm, will wait at the door leading to the antechamber.

Avatar of Ghalnn

Avatar of Ghalnn
  • Questname: Symphony of the Butcher

The Avatar of Ghalnn's terrifying gaze pierces your soul as horrid images enter your mind.

Fields of innocent beings slaughtered mercilessly at the hands of The Black.

The skulls of his fallen victims are forcibly removed from their torso and placed in to a blood-soaked bag.

Within your mind, the visage of Ghalnn appears before you with a grimacing half-smile,

Harvest me the skulls of one hundred innocents, and my favor shall you reap.

  • Objectives

Time Remaining: 00:30:00 (30 minutes)

Collect the severed heads of 100 innocents surrounding the alcove of the Avatar of Vothdar for the Avatar of Ghalnn within the Pantheon of the Ancients.

  • Rewards

2300 Pantheon of the Ancients faction and over 1 million xp at level 55.

  • Insight

Move to the Order side, at the Altar of Vothdar. Kill 100 innocents that are roaming the hall outside the altar.

Let the group stand inside the Altar cubicle, then summon the quest taker there. It's possible to use AE's inside.

Let the tank grab the 2 guardians and keep them on him. They are the only ones that do any damage. Innocents will respawn continuously, until you reach 100. Then finish off the last few and then the Guardians at the end.

Move back to Ghaln and turn in.

  • Questname: Kreshnikara, the Weaver of Storms

Nothing is more real in this world, or any other world, than the unavoidable influences of chaos.

Gelid winds, thrashing waters, and behemoths of the deep sea, so terrible that no child could imagine it in even the most terrible of nightmares.

If you desire my blessing, you will defeat one of these nightmares.

I give you Kreshnikara, the Weaver of Storms.

  • Objectives

Time Remaining: 00:05:00 (5 minutes)

Defeat Kreshnikara, the Weaver of Storms, and return to the Avatar of Sihari wihin the Pantheon of the Ancients upon completion.

  • Rewards

  • Insight

Happens in Chaos Side.

Your target is a single wyrm spawning outside the cubicle. He is a fairly simple fight, but at about 42 percent he will spawn 6 extra smaller wyrms. Your best bet is to ignore these and burn down Kreshnikara, then worry about the wyrmlings after.

You need medium to high dps to finish in time. Do NOT kill the wyrmlings until after Kreshnikara is dead. They will respawn instantly and tank cannot control agro. Tank can use AE's for agro, but stop when they get low. You will have to kill the 6 adds before you can turn in.


Essence of Haelifur

Essence of Haelifur
  • Questname: The Maw of Tyranny

A chilling force assaults you as the Shade of Haelifur speaks with a booming voice,

My will demands that I succumb to no one. There will be a time when my offspring succeed where I have failed. The deities of this Pantheon will bow to my omnipotent claw, or they will surely savor the nectarous fate of mortality.

And you. You have the audacity to address me? A bold demarche. We will see if you can survive my test.

  • Objectives

Survive the 5 waves.

Time Remaining: 00:30:00 (30 minutes)

Survive the test of the Essence of Haelifur. Do not stray far from the Altar of Haelifur to avoid disqualification. Return to the essence of Haelifur upon completion.

  • Questname: Recession of Beauty

The more beauty one possesses, the closer to perfection he or she has come. It is the way of all things, and it is my demand.

Gloriann, the wretch. Even speaking her name leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Her indisputable elegance, unavoidable allure, it evokes irrepressible envy. I, Theindal, the Prince of Beauty, will envy no one!

I have a gift for her, she will then know what it means to be just another petal.

Ravishingly ordinary.

Speak to me again when you are ready to deliver this gift.

  • Objectives

Time Remaining: 00:30:00 (30 minutes)

Speak to the Avatar of Theindal to obtain the flower and bucket for the water. Travel to the fountain in the Halls of Order. Gather water from the fountain and defeat the followers of Gloriann that attack to mix their blood in the water. Place Thrindal's flower in front of the Avatar of Gloriann and water it with the blood-water. Return to the Avatar of Theindal within the Pantheon of the Ancients upon completion.

Happens in Order Side.

The water carrier moves extremely slow, and the group has to play bodyguards and keep the attackers from him/her. Move close to the outer walls and move slow, so you only trigger a limited amount.

There will be 4 waves of Gloriann's followers:

  1. 2 Rangers of Gloriann.
  2. 2 Rangers of Gloriann.
  3. 1 Ranger and 1 Druid of Gloriann.
  4. 3 among the following: rangers and druids of Gloriann.
  5. 4 among the following: rangers and druids, and 1 Cleric of Gloriann.

When the waves spawn, they will be going for the water carrier only. If you stop exactly when they spawn, they will be out of range and cannot path to you. This gives you time to plan the fight.

All but the cleric can be mezmerized. The Cleric of course heals, the rangers do ranged dps and the druids do spell damage. All three types hit pretty hard and do a lot of flurry attacks.

Using a rogue as the water carrier, we managed to successfully split the waves by observing exactly when the carrier entered combat and then using his ability to escape from combat.

Note that a successful feign death by the water carrier fails the trial instantly.

Remember that you need the water carrier to go to Gloriann and deliver the flower and water, before going back to Theindal. The last wave spawns in front of Gloriann's avatar.

The water carrier will need to click the flower in the inventory, that will place the flower on the altar in front of Gloriann. Then he clicks the flower on the altar, that will update the quest. The group needs to go back to Theindal to turn the quest in.

  • Questname: The Hunt

No action is inconsequential: a truth which either blesses or plagues the fragile, mortal life flourishing in this world.

As such, it is exigent to your existence, that you take caution in your daily life. Even in my near-infinite amount of patience, I, Sartholas, will seek revenge upon those who cross me without abatement or restraint - a wrath matched only by the relentless fury of Ghalnn.

Seek our Hoarn within this Pantheon, and send him to the realm of the dead. He is concearling himself within the souls of the Order.

  • Objectives

Time Remaining: 00:30:00 (30 minutes)

Search the Halls of Order for an entity known as Hoarn. He is concealing himself within the souls of Order. Slay Hoarn, and return to the Avatar of Sartholas within the Pantheon of the Ancients.

  • Rewards

2300 Pantheon of the Ancients faction and over 1 million xp at level 55.


  • Insight

Happens in order side or in the Antechamber, as long as mob is an order one.

You can kill Xerklings at the center area until Hoarn spawns from one of them. You must pull them from the Order side only. Beware that Xerklings can sometimes spawn portals (2) that each summon an extra Xerkling, so you need a messer in group. They try to summon from 50% and you can prevent it with stuns and counterspells.

Hoarn hits pretty hard (a bit shy of 6k on my warrior) and is using Holy and Shadow damage.

  • Questname: Found and Hidden Again

You! Well, actually, I have no idea who YOU are.

Curious, what brings you here? You are not one of the chosen, so you have not earned the right.

The Avatar of Finch becomes a blur around you.

... and you have nothing of any real value. But I do know where you may find something... of value.

That's because I hid it there, of course. If you can find it and return it to me, then I will grant you my blessing.

  • Objectives

Time Remaining: 00:20:00 (20 minutes)

Retrieve the sword of the jesters demise, but watch for the danger that can arise. The Halls of Order is where it resides, bring some friends to fight by your side. It can be found in a chest but which will reveal, beware the beast that guards the seal. All of this should be a synch when you are finished return to Finch.

  • Rewards

2300 Pantheon of the Ancients faction and over 1 million xp at level 55.

  • Insight

The chests are placed inside the halls of Order, at the walls and pillars. When you pick the right chest, a mob called Joh'drol the Shackled will spawn. This is a timed fight. He does no damage until the time runs out (2 minutes), then he will kill people instantly, every 10 seconds (2 million damage). You need very high dps for this fight. Healers are necessary because of the mobs spawning when getting the wrong chests.

The placeholders will destroy your gear, so remember to have it repaired before engaging Joh'Drol.

When (if) the tank dies after the 2 minutes, who ever gets agro must KITE Joh'Drol around in circles, while the group burns him down.

A necromancers Deathtouch ability is a great help on this mob and usually does just shy of 2 million damage.
