Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Earth Forge

Meet with Sees-All-Colors at the specified guildhall, and she will tell you of Abagarlas and the Mortuum Vivicus, creating a portal to the Ayleid city. Once there, she will cast a spell around you, allowing you to see through the memories of the Ayleid warrior Ostarand. Continue through the ruin until you find Queen Palolel, who is casting a spell on the Vivicus, and must be killed. You must then try to destroy the Vivicus, however, Molag Bal will teleport it to Coldharbour before you are able to. Speak with the Guildmaster in the present, and she will say that Ostarand was close to destroying the Vivicus but was not able to finish his task, meaning it is still a threat. She then creates a portal to The Earth Forge and tells you to speak with Merric.

At the Earth Forge, Merric will be wearing a blacksmith outfit and you must follow him to the Forge. Once there, he will give you instructions on stoking the fires to help him forge the Prismatic Core. You must do it in the following order the first time:

  • Coals
  • Bellows

The second time, you must do it in this approximate order:

  • Coals
  • Valve (twice)
  • Bellows

The third and final time, you must do it in this order:

  • Coals (twice)
  • Valve
  • Bellows (twice)

Once that is done, Molag Bal will summon undead forces from Abagarlas to attack you. After they are defeated, an undead Queen Palolel arrives in Lich form and attempts to kill you, and you must defeat her. Speak to Merric and follow him outside. He will talk to Aelif, who has fought off the undead on the surface with unfortunate casualties, and Jofnir Iceblade will show up. He tells you all that he was murdered and wants you to find his killer so that he may be at peace. Speak to Merric again, who will teleport you to the guildhall to report to Sees-All-Colors.
