Kurista, a loyal servant of Tunare, is rallying forces to help restore the defiled druid rings of Norrath. With the assistance of adventurers, she will perform the Rite of Renewal on one druid ring at a time, infusing the rings with the power of Growth. Every contribution will give Kurista's chant more power, until its own spiritual presence can continue the growth on its own.
As these servants of Growth move from one druid ring to another, they will ask that adventurers assist them with small tasks to contribute toward their goal of restoring all of the broken druid rings. At the end of this event, all of the associated druid rings should be fully functional port locations.
NEW! On June 29, a quest named Path of the Prophet was added to this event.
Defender of Growth will offer to teleport you to the next ring. Note: Currently, the defender does offer teleportation, but his teleports only work from some of the rings. This should be fixed in an upcoming hotfix.
Stonebrunt Highlands is the final druid ring of this event.
If you still have a previous ring's quest in your journal when that is not the active ring (and before all rings are completed), you can turn in the quest to the Defender of Growth at that ring.

Dalarim will give out tradeskilling tasks to players who are at least Artisan level 10. Each task will use various tier 2 supplies, along with vendor bought materials from a Tunarian quartermaster.
Note: Once all eight rings are completed, this quest will be offered by the Defender of Growth at every ring except Stonebrunt, where Dalarim remains.
Note: Once all eight rings are completed, this quest will be offered by the Defender of Growth at every ring except Stonebrunt, where Tolla remains.
Elwe seeks living stones from the Plane of Growth to assist with the Rite of Renewal. A mighty tempest sent by Karana, who agreed to deliver the stones on Tunare's behalf, has scattered these magiliths all over, and the servants need your help in collecting the materials.
Note: Once all eight rings are completed, this quest will be offered by the Defender of Growth at every ring except Stonebrunt, where Elwe remains.
An update on June 29 introduced a storyline continuation to this event. Once all eight rings are completed on a server, Kurista at the Stonebrunt Highlands Druid Ring will offer players who have participated in at least ten of the event quests the follow-up, Path of the Prophet. Kurista's inspiration for casting the Rite of Renewal is revealed, and players discover the legendary character that will make a return to Norrath.
For completing the quests you will receive a pre-set number of Florets of Growth, which is a token currency specific to this event. Visit the Tunarian Supply Officer to spend your hard earned tokens. The token merchants will remain at all of the druid rings involved in this event until Game Update 57, after which time they will be gone forever.
The druid ring rewards on the Supply Officer will vary depending on the location. For a full list of purchased rewards, see the Druid Ring Reconstruction Event Rewards guide.
