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.
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.
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.
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.
After killing Rhylinil and placing the note, return to North Freeport and speak to Preceptor Nyjuss.
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.
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).
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
Once you have the tome, and you've confirmed the quest updated, head back to Old Man Pomerenke.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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'.
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.
I found a strange ring on a corpse in Nektulos forest. I need to see if I can find someone that has any information regarding this trinket. Maybe someone from the Emissaries of Freeport will know something about this ring.

I've updated her as to my success.
I've returned to Deacon Danerous and reported back to her my successful results.
I must find Preceptor Nyjuss for my next assignment, he can be found wandering somewhere within the Freeport city walls.
Seek out Preceptor Nyjuss.
I've located Preceptor Nyjuss.
I've spoken with Preceptor Nyjuss.
My first assignment as a Watcher within the Emissaries of Freeport is to assassinate four targets that are a threat to the Overlord. It seems that these people have begun or are currently working for the Ebon Mask to help remove the Overlord from power.

Return to the Preceptor.
I've informed the Preceptor of my success.
I've made the Preceptor aware of my success and must now speak with him for my next assignment.
Preceptor Nyjuss has informed me that the Overlord himself has decreed that the Emissaries are to assassinate someone from the Ebon Mask to reinforce the previous message and further remind them that Freeport takes this matter very seriously. I must travel to Neriak, kill a prominent figure within the Ebon Mask and leave behind a note from the Freeport Emissaries.

The mission is a success, I've murdered a very high profile member of the Ebon Mask and I've placed the fake message from the Thexian Prince. I'm sure the Queen will learn of his deeds and be outraged at this infiltration. I must now return to the Preceptor and inform him of my flawless execution.
Report in and inform the Preceptor of your success.
I've spoken with Preceptor Nyjuss and informed him of my results.
I've returned to the Preceptor, I must now speak with him again and obtain my next task.
I've been tasked with tracking down Lirosi, a Freeport Emissary Watcher that has gone missing. I've been instructed to discover why he hasn't reported in and 'remind' him of his allegiance to the Emissaries.
I must find Watcher Lirosi and learn why he hasn't reported in.
I've found Lirosi drunk in a tavern and straightened him out.
I've managed to track Lirosi to a tavern in the Stonestair Byway where he was hiding himself at the bottom of a tankard. After a little strongarm persuasion, I've convinced him to report back in to the Emissaries.
Looks like Lirosi was given an assignment to travel to Kunark on behalf of the Emissaries, but he was too scared to complete his mission. He felt that hiding out in a tavern and drinking away his fear was the best solution. I'm sure he's in for some serious punishment for this offense.
Report back to the Preceptor with your results.
I've reported my findings to the Preceptor.
I've returned to Preceptor Nyjuss and informed him of my findings.
Preceptor has informed me that word has been passed down from the Bearer that Freeport spies within the Ebon Mask have learned of an ancient tome that was written in an unreadable ancient language. They believe that someone from the Ebon Mask has fled with it to Kunark and it's my job to find them. I'm willing to bet that this is the other half to the tome I found on Rhylinil in Neriak.
I must travel to Kunark, track the one that carries the ancient tome and claim it in the name of the Emissaries.
I found the book in the possession of Morticus Belaern, an assassin of the Ebon Mask.
I've slain an Ebon Mask assassin named Morticus Belaern and retrieved the book. The book I found on his body is very similar in appearance to the book I took off the body of Rhylinil in Neriak.
Return the book you have collected to the Preceptor, he will be anxious to learn of its whereabouts.
Deliver the tome to the Preceptor.
I've given the book to the Preceptor.
I've delivered the book to the Preceptor as told, though oddly enough it bears the same markings and unknown language as the other book I found on the corpse of Rhylinil.
I need to find someone that can identify this book, since it seems that the Freeport Emissaries currently lack the resources to accomplish this. No one in Freeport has that kind of knowledge, not even the Academy of Arcane Science so I must search elsewhere.
Find someone that can identify these two tomes.
Looks like Old Man Pomerenke was able to give me some information.
Looks like Old Man Pomerenke in the Steppes was able to help me identify these books. Now I need to find someone that can translate Shisik.
With these two tomes in my possession, I must now see if the old man was telling the truth by traveling to Kunark to find a Shisik translator. Where in the void am I going to find a Shisik translator?
I must travel to Kunark in search of a Shisik translator.
I have located a Shisik translator!
I have found an iksar loyal to Venril that can read Shisik and is willing to help me. I should speak with her after she has had some time to translate the tomes I have given her.
Now that I have given her the tomes and paid for the service, I should give her a moment to translate them.
Give Kuza Sathak a moment to translate the tomes.
Kuza Sathak is finished studying the tomes.
Speak with Kuza and see what she has learned from the tomes.
I've retrieved the tomes from Kuza, but they still need to be translated. She has told me that the tomes are bound with an old and powerful spell that prevents them from being read. I must slay the creature that placed this spell upon the tomes if I am to get these translated.
In order for me to get these tomes translated, I must first remove the spell that is preventing them from being read. Kuza Sathak has told me that the spell is old and powerful and not to rule out the idea of both living and undead beings as possible targets. One last thing she mentioned is that the magic felt slightly familiar to her, which could mean that it was some form of magic used on Kunark many years ago.
I must find and slay the creature that placed the spell upon the tomes.
Drusella Sathir was the creature! The tomes have bound themselves together!
Looks like Drusella Sathir, Venril's undead wife was the creature that placed the spell upon these old tomes. Slaying her physical form was enough to release the spell, forging the two tome pieces into one book! It looks like the spell is gone, allowing me to have Kuza read these tomes and translate them.
Slaying the undead iksar Drusella freed the halves of the tome from their spell and bound them together into one tome. I should now take this complete tome back to Kuza and see what she can tell me about the book.
Return to Kuza Sathak and have her translate the tome.
I've given the disenchanted tome for Kuza to translate. I must return after she has finished.
Kuza now has the tome in her possession and is translating the Shisik tongue into Common. I should return to her after a while, giving her enough time to complete the translation.
Give Kuza Sathak some time to translate the tome from the Shisik tongue into Common.
Get the translated tome from Kuza when she is finished.
I've obtained the translated tome from Kuza.
I've got the translated book in my possession. I should get this back to the Preceptor.
Take the recently translated tome to Preceptor Nyjuss, he will be very happy to learn that the book is now free of its magical encryption and that it has been translated into the Common tongue.
Take the translated tome back to the Preceptor as instructed.
The tome has been delivered, completing the mission.
The tome has been delivered to the Preceptor as ordered.
Due to my proven loyalty to the Emissaries of Freeport and the Overlord, I have been promoted to Constable. My first task as Constable is to try and discover what temple is mentioned in the tome I translated for the Preceptor. I was told that the tome only mentions that the 'key' is to be stored in a temple where an ancient being sits in a deep slumber through the ages.
Discover the location of the temple mentioned in the tome.
I've found the temple!
Looks like I've finally found the temple, whomever scribed that tome must have hidden the 'key' in Chelsith somewhere.
Now that I've located the correct temple, I must try and see if I can find the 'key' mentioned in the tome. I'm sure it's got to be in the murky ruins of Chelsith.
Search Chelsith for any clues.
Praying at the temple artifacts revealed a chest.
Praying at the various shrines within the temple of Chelsith revealed a chest of some sort at the foot of the main shrine. The chest must have been hidden magically and only by praying together as a group was it revealed.
Praying at the artifacts within the old Yha-lei ruins of Chelsith revealed a chest that had been hidden by magic. I'm willing to bet that the key the tome mentions is inside that chest, I should attempt to open in and reveal its contents.
Attempt to open the chest and reveal its contents.
I've slain the Protector of the Blade and unlocked the chest!
Open the chest and claim its contents.
I've collected some sort of amulet from the chest.
Attempting to open the chest summoned forth a very large droag that called itself the Protector of the Blade. Just before the demise of the creature, it mentioned something about a blade and our search will fail, even with the amulet. It seems that some sort of amulet was locked within this chest.
Now that I have this strange amulet from the chest that was guarded by the Protector of the Blade, I should try and find a use for it. I'm sure there are other droags involved in its use, since this was a droag that was protecting this amulet. He also mentioned something about the dragons as well, so I'm quite sure they are involved to some extent.
Discover a use for the amulet.
Holding the amulet and reading the encased scrolls at the Dracurion towers in Jarsath Wastes opened some sort of portal.
Discover what you've just unleashed in Jarsath Wastes.
Slaying the phantasmal droag gave me the Fang of Ichor!
It turns out that the amulet I recovered from Chelsith worked as a key that when held while reading the draconic scrolls in Jarsath Wastes, opened a portal between Norrath and the void. While open, a celestial droag stepped through. This droag must have been sent there with the Fang of Ichor weapon by the dragons to keep it safe.
Now that you have uncovered the location and obtained the Fang of Ichor, you are to deliver it to Preceptor Nyjuss so it can be handed over to the Overlord for its safekeeping.
Deliver the Fang of Ichor to Preceptor Nyjuss.
I've made my decision.
I've made my decision regarding the Fang of Ichor; the one that's always in the best interest of everyone important: me.
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.
