Warlocks can now purchase, trade or harvest the harvest items required during the seven stage of their quest. Please note this will only affect those who were not yet on this quest stage prior to GU56.

Starter is a clickable dagger over the fireplace in The Seafarer's Roost in East Freeport.


  • You need to be (at least) level 80 Warlock to even see the dagger to receive this quest.


  1. "Find out what happened to Ritter Shortshank, Slayer of Gherzhas, Hero of Everling Village. Wonder if he is even still alive?"
    • Go to the Coldwind Shores Cemetery in western Thundering Steppes and find Shortshank's grave 1362, -1, -70 .
    • Read the confession found at the grave.
  2. "I should look into what exactly happened at Everling Village. Perhaps I could find more by visiting Lord Everling's former home."
    • Locate the Journal of Samantha Rageshree in the library of Nektropos Castle -19, 14, 52 , it appears as a glowing book on the center shelves.
  3. "I need to find a descendant of an Everling Village resident who can tell me more about the warlock who tormented Everling village."
    • Speak with Dalmat Rageshree within the Ruins of Varsoon 237.39, -7.97, 54.95 ("Tome of Death" room).
  4. "Before agreeing to tell me anything about the warlock who terrorized Everling village, I must retrieve a research tome that Dalmat claims was stolen from him by a Qeynosian named Abelard Raleigh."
    • Speak with Abelard Raleigh inside the Lion's Mane Inn and Tavern within South Qeynos 516, -9, 132 . He will refuse to give up the tome and attack as a level 80^, teach him a lesson and take it from him.
      • Set your merc to do nothing/heal-only before engaging him, or it might kill Abelard before you do. If your merc does kill him and Abelard disappears, log completely out of the game and then back in, and Abelard should be visible again. Re-zoning did not make him appear. Speak to him again and you should get the book titled "On Achieving the Quality of Unending Life".
    • Return to Dalmat and speak with him.
  5. "Dalmat Rageshree has given me a small book containing the history of man named Alexander Simond. Perhaps it will give me a clue as how I should proceed."
    • Inspect the grave of Yasinia Simond in Nektulos Forest behind Nektropos Castle -1627, 117, -1852 .
    • Defeat the guardian apparition that attacks you (level 81^), then loot and read the journal entry that is found in the chest it leaves behind.
  6. "I found a journal entry, presumably from Alexander Simond, which details the creation of a poison known as Siv'ajauhar's Kiss."
    • Examine the journal entry.
    • Speak with Tahd Feek at Stealth and Skullduggery inside Teren's Grasp within Kylong Plains 1734, 487, -1042 .

    • Collect 6 Mantrap roots (needs to be harvested from roots or shrubs).
    • Collect 10 pieces of smoldering material (needs to be harvested from any harvest node).
  8. "I need to bring the gathered materials to Tahd Feek in Teren's Grasp."
    • Hail Tahd Feek, then wait for him to finish making the poison.
  9. "I need to place the bottle of Siv'ajauhar's Kiss in the safe place mentioned in Alexander Simond's journal."
    • Head back to Yasmina Simond's grave behind Nektropos Castle in Nektulos Forest -1627, 117, -1852 .
    • Examine the gravestone, look closer, and pour the bottle down the cylinder hole.
  10. "I opened a secret compartment revealing a second journal entry and a strange idol. I should try to find out more about Kyrtoxxulous and this idol. Perhaps I could find a book on this matter."

    • Locate the makeshift shrine a little west of where you land in the water, and click the pole -1687, -401, 1103 .
  12. "I need to follow the footsteps and find who created the shrine."
    • Head to Kunzar Jungle and locate a pox-ridden reet slave in the trakaraptor valley north of Outer Sebilis, -634, -68, 483 .
    • Make sure you are able to speak and understand the Froak language (starts with A Mysterious Green Tome).
