Step 3

Go out to Greater Faydark and locate Guard Highmoon (-2000, -2350). He is right outside of Felwithe. Hail him to receive emote:

4x waves of 4 orcs will spawn (make sure to check all sides of the pillar). Next to them will be Remel the Black. For now you cannot fight him. After you clear all 4 waves Keelee Rayin and Remal the Black will port across the zone (see map location 2 below).

3) At this point you will fight Remal the Black. This is the raid boss. Kill him and “Hail” Kelee Rayin nearby to receive Keelee’s Brooch.

3) This part is somewhat gimmicky. Give the sword to Pashia Clouddancer, then say “follow”.
She will stand up and you’ll need to escort her to the Wall of Slaughter zone line. She runs pretty quickly and will follow you wherever you go.

If you have problems getting her to follow you drag some mobs on her, kill them, and run away a little bit until she follows. Keep spamming “follow” to her also. Going invisible can possibly cause her to stop following.

Overlord Mata Muram

Step 36

This part will require two people so grab a friend and head to Plane of Sky. Make sure your friend has 500pp. You will also need to be keyed for Island 4; only you need to be keyed, your friend doesn’t. Have your friend go to the Quest Room. They can buy Efreeti’s Key from Key Master on Island 1 to access it. Meanwhile you should head to Island 4. Island 4 (Pegasus Island) is the island with a big Windmill in the middle. Stay inside the Windmill.

Have your friend say “I wish to be tested by Dirkog” to Dason Goldblade in the Quest Room. Dason Goldblade will give your friend Walk with Evil. Give Walk with Evil back to Dason Goldblade to spawn Dirkog Steelhand. Give Dirkog Steelhand 500pp. Doing so will spawn Inte Akera in the Windmill on Island 4. Inte Akera only stays up for a few minutes which is why you need someone else to spawn him from the Quest Room.

Give Inte Akera your  Globe of Discordant Energy.

You’ll receive:

Scabbard of the Righteous, Token of Conviction, Token of Loyalty.

Step 37

Combine all 6 tokens and your 1.5 Epic: Redemption into Scabbard of the Righteous to receive your  2.0 Epic: Nightbane, Sword of the Valiant!
