Quest StagesEdit

The Wakening Dark
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
A group of Dark Elves recently came here to attempt to stop a Dark Anchor, but something happened to them. High Ordinator Danys was sent here by Almalexia herself to look for them and find out what happened. He wants my help finding them.
Objective: Search for Survivors
I found one of the survivors. I should see what she has to say about what happened here.
Objective: Talk to Meva Nelenim
Meva told me the group failed to put an end to the Dark Anchor because it was being empowered by strange devices. I should see what Danys has to say about this.
Objective: Talk to High Ordinator Danys
Danys told me a story about Almalexia and gave me a crystal tear that carries the strength of her fury inside it. I need to empower it by slaying the Worm Cult in Gil-Var-Delle. Then I can use it to destroy the devices known as the Fangs of Chaos.
Objective Hint: Kill Enemies to Empower the Tear of Almalexia: 0/3
Objective Hint: Use the Tear of Almalexia on a Fang of Chaos
Objective: Destroy Northern Fang
Objective: Destroy Western Fang
Objective: Destroy Eastern Fang
Objective: Destroy Southern Fang
With the Fangs destroyed, the Dark Anchor is now no more powerful than the rest. If I can fight back the invaders brought forth from Coldharbour, I should be able to shut down the Anchor and close the gateway.
Objective: Shut Down the Dark Anchor
Finishes quest  The Dark Anchor has been banished for now. I should speak with High Ordinator Danys.
Objective: Talk to High Ordinator Danys

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
