Quest Overview

Quest #: 94 - Completable (can be missed)

Description needed...

Quest Steps

  1. Talk to Laughing Deer in Elder Forest (only while not hostile to the Varannari).
  2. Meditate with Laughing Deer and reach the Spirit World (requires PER 3, END 3, and some patients during the lengthy dialogue).
  3. Retrieve Winter Wail from The Deep Cauldron (if you haven't already done so) and deliver it to Laughing Deer.
  4. Find the secret hideout in The Undergrove and interact with the altar while having Winter Wail in your inventory. Touch the altar with Winter Wail (it will be upgraded to Forest Lament in the process).
  5. Defeat the Nightmare Dragon and interact again with the altar, this time touching it with Forest Lament. A bridge will appear, leading deeper into the hideout.
  6. Interact with the Dark Pool and submerge Forest Lament into it, thus cleansing the pool from all evil.
  7. Report back to Laughing Deer. Either claim Forest Lament for yourself or offer it to him. The latter option will grant you the upgraded version Ancestral Blade of the Deer.

Notes

  • As a Rogue you have the unique opportunity to gain up to four vials of Essence of Darkness while interacting with the Dark Pool in The Undergrove. This requires an Intellect 3 check and has to be performed before submerging the sword into the pool. Note that you will be hurt by 120 death damage each time you fill a vial.
  • Drinking from the Dark Pool will instantly kill you.
