A Mysterious Trinket  

This quest is part 1 of 2 for the Fabled version of the Assassin-only Epic Weapon, Fang of Ichor.


  • Investigation skill is required to start this quest.
    • Can be purchased in Teren's Grasp from Juulika McDarid for 8p75g ( 1836, 487, -842 ) . On merchant window it is called The Ins-and-Outs of Investigation.
  • At least 40,000 faction with Riliss and Synod Reet, and 50,000 Faction with Residents of Teren's Grasp
  • Command of the Sathirian language is required to start or complete this quest.
  • Command of the Draconic language is required to start or complete this quest.

Investigate Rylana's dead body at -1702, 25, -774 in The Bear Caves in Nektulos Forest to receive Mark of the Emissary. Inspect it in your inventory to start this quest.

  1. Speak to Deacon Danerous at -64, -21, 134 in East Freeport. He sends you to get 10 'sathiran poisons'.
    • You need the recipe from Sebilis, which is a fairly common drop off any mob in the zone, including the solo frogs in the Entry Hall.
    • get 10 Di'Zok Gall Bladders from Chardok, off of any Sarnak in zone, including the solo mobs at the entrance. They drop at a higher frequency off 80+ heroics deeper in Chardok.
    • You will also need: 10 deklium clusters, 20 Rough Kunzite, and 30 mineral salt loams.
    • Travel to the Sathirian Alchemist's Table in Sebilis. This is at the bottom of Sebilis, just left of the door into Venril Sathir's Lair. It's an easy level 4 combine, but takes a long time to complete. Failure *is* possible and *does* consume the bladder. It can be commission-made by an Alchemist as well which can speed up the process. The location can not be reached solo but requires a group, however once there you can craft all 10 poisons safely.
  2. Return to Deacon Danerous in East Freeport.
  3. Purchase three items from various faction merchants in Kunark for Deacon Danerous. You will need to be able to purchase from Residents of Teren's Grasp, Riliss, and the Synod Reet. Note: You much purchase these while on this step or you will not get the updates.
  4. Return to Deacon Danerous in East Freeport.
  5. Deacon Danerous will send you to North Qeynos to kill a freeport traitor.
    • Just to the South East of the Claymore, there is a General Store marked on the map. Inside, right behind the baker, is a door to the instance Baker Voleen's Store Room.
    • Kill Quin Darius (80^).
  6. Return to Deacon Danerous.
  7. Deacon Danerous will send you to speak with Preceptor Nyjuss in North Freeport at the inn.
  8. Preceptor Nyjuss will send you to kill four NPC's. You *have* to be wearing the Robe of the Freeport Emissary given at the start of this step in order to get updates.
    • Yulessia Nybright - In The Peacock Club. 81^ solo mob.
    • Rollus the Sly - In Crow's Resting Place, an instance off of The Down Below in the Qeynos sewers. 81^^ Heroic. You must have the Crow Coin given at the beginning of the quest to enter.
      • You can bring a group if they all have a Crow Coin. They can get one by completing the Swords of Destiny quest Liberating the Cavaliers. If they've done the quest and deleted the coin the can get another from Sir Groktog in the Commonlands at 305, -46, 248 .
    • Rid Jestands - In Lesser Faydark at Camp Nybright. He is a 60^^^, as soon as you aggro, turns into an 85^^^ heroic. Hits VERY hard. Bring a solid group. Can be duoed with a good ranger and snare kiting.
    • Ekner Darkblade - In stealth mode, bring butterfly totems. Spawns in the Festering Hag's room in The Estate of Unrest. Will be stealthed in between stairs and wall.
  9. Return to Preceptor Nyjuss.
  10. Head to Neriak, City of Hate. The Hall of the Ebon Mask is attached to Cristanos Plaza. The mob you are looking for is Rhylinil K'Helviurden on the first floor of the tower. When you hail him, a short dialogue will appear. Be ready to fight as soon as dialogue clears. Rhylinil is an 85^^^ mob. About 15 seconds into this fight, Vykko T'Lach will also turn aggro and attack you. He is an 85^^ heroic. Adds somewhat significant dps. Once Rhylinil dies, you will get update and it will not matter if you die.
  11. After finishing the fight/wiping to it and running back, you need to stealth and place the note you received before killing Rhylinil on the u-shaped desk in the foyer of the Ebon Mask. Rhylinil will respawn in 15 minutes after kill.
  12. After killing Rhylinil and placing the note, return to North Freeport and speak to Preceptor Nyjuss.
  13. Preceptor Nyjuss will then send you to speak with Lirosi, who is in the tavern in Stonestair Byway. On hailing Lirosi, you will be attacked by an 81^^^ version. Upon killing Lirosi, you get a bit more dialogue.
  14. After this, you are sent back to Preceptor Nyjuss in North Freeport.
  15. Preceptor Nyjuss sends you to recover a tome in Kunark from a member of the Ebon Mask and decipher the two tomes.
    • The book is being held by Morticus Belaern in Teren's Grasp. Morticus is just outside the Hall of the Crafters at ( 2223,479,-779 ) . He turns into an 85^^^ after dialogue and auto-attacks (It would appear you have to be wearing robe on this step as well).
    • You should receive An ancient grimoire. If not, kill him again.
  16. Return to Preceptor Nyjuss.
  17. Preceptor Nyjuss sends you to find a sage who can identify the two tomes. The sage you need to find is Old Man Pomerenke in the Village of Thundermist in Thundering Steppes at 552, 0, -72 . Note that he is NOT trackable. He sends you on a sub-quest which you need to complete before you can advance: Borrowed Time.
    1. Go to Sebilis. The dictionary can be found on a skeleton in the big round room with Clay Golems before the Laboratory. As you enter, if you kill the Clay to the right, you should be able to access it, at -151, -22, 310
    2. Once you have the tome, and you've confirmed the quest updated, head back to Old Man Pomerenke.
  18. You must now find a Shisik Translator. His name is Kuza Sathak and he roams near Dalnir's Wheel. In order to complete this stage you must speak Sathirian and be stealthed whilst speaking to him. He will ask for 5 Platinum for his services.
  19. You will need to wait a brief while.
  20. Return to Kuza Sathak. Upon returning, she will ask for time to translate - takes about a minute. Then she sends you back to Preceptor Nyjuss in North Freeport.
  21. Nyjuss sends you to 'discover the location of the temple mentioned in the tome', which is Chelsith. Upon entering Chelsith, you get update and the quest asks you to search for clues.
  22. In Chelsith there are statues where the rare named/placeholders spawn. The five statues must be clicked nearly simultaneously, so basically just have group members spam-click every item. You will need to have killed all the nameds in the zone, specifically, Majora Leviathora. Once you kill Majora the statues will become clickable.
    • WARNING: This step is currently BUGGED. If you don't kill the Protector of the Blade before the instance expires, you'll find you wont be able to get updates.
  23. Once you get the update a chest will spawn near one of the altars. Clicking the chest spawns Protector of the Blade, an 85^^^ heroic Droag at zone-in, and he will run up to your location in about 20 seconds and then aggro.
    • This mob has AE knockback and is impossible without pretty good dps, a semi-decent off-tank (well-equipped brigand or better), or a battle-rezzing class. His AE makes the tank 2nd or 3rd on aggro list, and it is difficult to get back to #1 before the person who moved to #1 dies. If you cannot withstand this or your dps is not sufficient to overcome it, you will die one by one.
  24. Upon killing the Protector of the Blade, the chest becomes clickable, and updates rewarding you with a strange amulet and updating quest to 'Discover a use for the Amulet' with a hint about Droags and Dragons.
  25. Go to Skyfire and click three pedestals in order:
    • 1st: -1893, 201, 1674
    • 2nd: -1844, 235, 756
    • 3rd: -1354, 249, 585
      • The quest should update to 'Discover what you've just unleashed in Jarsath Wastes'.
  26. Go to the steps of Veeshan's Peak. Guardian of the Blade will spawn and speak some dialogue. At the end of the dialogue, he turns aggro as an 86^^^ heroic.

At this point you have a choice to make. Either will ultimately get you your Fabled and Mythical epics. "The ancient weapon crafted by the Demigod of Pain, Saryrn has been found and a choice has been laid at my feet. Should I deliver the weapon to the Controller and remain true to my sworn allegiance to the Emissaries of Freeport and the Overlord or shall I keep the weapon and work with the Preceptor for my own ends? This is a tough choice that I must make, but in the end I'm sure my decision will be the right one."

Choose your path, and receive the appropriate quest.
