Shadow Knight 1.0 Epic
**Disclaimer: You can potentially skip Step 1-6 all together and begin at Step 7. You must con apprehensive or better to Duriek Bloodpool in Paineel to skip steps 1-6, OR anytime you do a turn-in you’ll need to be invs (or invis vs undead in some cases). This is done once the trade window is open with the NPC and you’re ready to hit “Give“. This is generally a safe method but do it at your own risk. **
Step 1 – All items in Step 1 if you will be doing the quest the regular way
Step 2 – 900pp
Step 4 – 1000pp
Step 7 – Loot Blade of Abrogation from trash mobs in Plane of Sky
Step 8 – Loot Ghoulbane from froglok shin lord in Upper Guk or Joren Nobleheart in Felwithe B.
Step 9 – Loot Soul Leech, Dark Sword of Blood from Dread, Fight, Terror, or Cazic-Thule in PoFear
Step 14 – Loot Cell Key from a chest in The Hole
You’ll first need to quest for 3 pieces of Darkforge Armor: Darkforge Helm, Darkforge Greaves, and Darkforge Breastplate. Each item requires multiple drops. Once you have the necessary drops, you’ll turn them into an undead knight NPC in Temple of Solusek Ro to receive the Armor. There are 2 an undead knight NPC’s in the same room, so make sure to hand in your items to the correct one (outlined below).
The resulting Darkforge Armor items are tradable so you can potentially buy them from someone else. The drops are pretty rare though, so expect that you’ll have to do it yourself in most cases.
1) Darkforge Helm
1x Decayed Helm – a Tae Ew crusader and a Tae Ew Spiritualist in Ferrott, Rare Spawn and Drop
1x Decayed Visor – a Tae Ew crusader and a Tae Ew Spiritualist in Ferrott, Rare Spawn and Drop
2x Damaged Militia Helm – Drops from Guards in Freeport, Common Drop
– Turn into an undead knight in Temple of Solusek Ro (North skeleton)
2) Darkforge Greaves
1x Decayed Left Legplate – a Tae Ew crusader and a Tae Ew Spiritualist in Ferrott, Rare Spawn and Drop
1x Decayed Right Legplate – a Tae Ew crusader and a Tae Ew Spiritualist in Ferrott, Rare Spawn and Drop
2x Melatite – Drops from “CWG” gnomes in SolA, Uncommon Drop
– Turn into an undead knight in Temple of Solusek Ro (South skeleton)
3) Darkforge Breastplate
1x Decayed Breastplate – a Tae Ew crusader and a Tae Ew Spiritualist in Ferrott, Rare Spawn and Drop
1x Decayed Chainmail – a Tae Ew crusader and a Tae Ew Spiritualist in Ferrott, Rare Spawn and Drop
2x Enchanted Platinum Bar – Created by Enchanters
– Turn into an undead knight in Temple of Solusek Ro (North skeleton)
Head to The Overthere and find Kurron Ni. He is in town and has a long respawn (within 1-3 days, maybe 36 hours). Give him Darkforge Helm, Darkforge Greaves, Darkforge Breastplate, and 900pp. He will respawn and attack. Kill him and loot Letter to Duriek. He will likely require a group in era, and is highly resistant to spells.
Find Duriek Bloodpool in Paineel. He is located in a small room overlooking the noob area. Give him Letter to Duriek. You’ll get some faction in return. He is on a long respawn timer (36 hours?)
Go to Neriak A (Foreign Quarter). Give 1000pp to Smaka to receive Cough Elixir.
Go back to Paineel and give the Cough Elixir to Duriek Bloodpool.
Head to The Hole and kill a ratman guard. Loot Dusty Tome. Always Drops. The PH is a ratman inhabitant. There are roughly 6 PH rats. They roam in the highlighted circle (see map) the city area.
Once you have Dusty Tome give it to Duriek Bloodpool back in Paineel.
Go to Plane of Sky. Kill mobs (any island) until you get a Blade of Abrogation. Rare drop.
Obtain a Ghoulbane. You can get one from either the froglok shin lord in Upper Guk (rare spawn and drop), or from Joren Nobleheart in Felwithe B. He is located in through center teleport pad in the back room. Joren Nobleheart is level 60 and is a harder fight of the two, but he drops the sword every time. I recommend going this route if you have a some friends who can help.
Go to Plane of Fear. Kill either Dread, Fright, Terror, or Cazic-Thule. Loot Soul Leech, Dark Sword of Blood. Uncommon drop.
Quest for Decrepit Sheath.
10A. Kill Rharzar in Rathe Mountains. Loot Drake Spine. Always Drops. His PH are drakes in the area. Level 55. Casts some 500ish DD’s.
10B. Kill an ashenbone drake in Plane of Hate. Loot Decrepit Hide. Uncommon Drop. These spawn all over the zone as trash mobs. Bring a tracker.
10C. Get an Enchanted Platinum Bar. Created by Enchanters.
**get an invis here once trade window is open if you skipped sections 1-6**
Head to the Qeynos Catacombs (Aqueduct System) and find Teydar. The easiest way to get to him is to enter the Catacombs from the Warrior Guildmaster area in South Qeynos. Give Teydar Drake Spine, Decrepit Hide, Enchanted Platinum Bar to receive Decrepit Sheath.
Go back to Duriek Bloodpool in Paineel. Give him Blade of Abrogation, Ghoulbane, Soul Leech, Dark Sword of Blood, Decrepit Sheath to receive Corrupted Ghoulbane.
**get an invis here once trade window is open if you skipped factioning**
12A. Go to Toxxulia Forest. First, find Knarthenne Skurl and say “what heart of an innocent” to receive Soulcase (2 slot container).
12B. Next, go to Marl Kastane on Kerra Island (still in Toxxulia Forest) and say “what prophecy” to receive Seal of Kastane.
**Step 12B can be skipped if you are using the invis method**
**Step 13 can be skipped completely if you are using the invis method**
Go back to Paineel. You’ll need to get to the City area, which means you’ll need a key. You can either farm Kobald faction in The Warrens then get one from a guard, or have a friend/box make an level 1 Erudite to let you in. Pick Lock also works. Once in the city, find Gerot Kastane and give him Seal of Kastane to receive Note to Marl. Once obtained, head back to Marl Kastane in Toxxulia Forest and give him Note to Marl.
Go to The Hole and kill a chest until Cell Key drops. Loot it. Rare Drop.
Once you have Cell Key you’ll need to find Caradon ( +420, -190) in The Hole. He is located in a jail cell that he shares with an elemental spawn. He has a long respawn timer so if he isn’t up check him every few hours. Spawn time could be up to 36 hours (exact respawn time not confirmed). Give him Cell Key. **get an invis here once trade window is open if you skipped factioning** He will attack. Additionally another NPC, Kyrenna, will also spawn and attack. Kill them both. Loot Blood of Kyrenna and Heart of Kyrenna from the corpse of Kyrenna. Level 55, take a few players to a group to be safe in era.
The Map I have is missing the jail section of The Hole, so here are directions on how to find him:
1. Zone in from the “key’d rock” side of Paineel (as opposed to the “dropdown” side)
2. Run through until you see a ramp leading down to a pit filled with a massive construct.
3. At the bottom of the ramp is a doorway with a lamp on each side of it, run through and take an immediate left into the next hallway, then take the first door on the right (next to the red banner on the wall).
4. Run down the two flights of stairs until you get to the next room with 2 doors in it. Take the door straight ahead. The first cubby on the right is the room that Caradon spawns in ( +420, -190). an elemental type mob also spawns in the same cubby.
Go back to Toxxulia Forest again. **get an invis here once trade window is open if you skipped factioning* Give Blood of Kyrenna to Marl Kastane to receive Dark Shroud. Then combine Heart of Kyrenna by itself in the Soulcase (2 slot container) to create Heart of the Innocent.
Find Ghost of Glohnor at the revenant tower in The Hole. His PH’s are a fallen heretic who spawn in the tombs. **get an invis to undead here once trade window is open if you skipped factioning** Give him Dark Shroud. Mummy of Glohnor will spawn and attack. Kill it and loot Head of Glohnor and Glohnor Wrappings. Level 56, take a few players to a group to be safe in era.
**get an invis here once trade window is open if you skipped factioning** Go back to Gerot Kastane in Paineel (in town). Give him Head of Glohnor to receive Head of the Valiant.
**get an invis here once trade window is open if you skipped factioning** Go to Toxxulia Forest and give Glohnor Wrappings to Marl Kastane to receive Will of Innoruuk.
Final Fight and Epic!
Head to City of Mist. Find Lhranc (0, +90). Give him:
**get an invis vs undead here once trade window is open if you skipped factioning. Check that he’s indifferent**
Heart of the Innocent
Head of the Valiant
Will of Innoruuk
You will receive Lhranc’s Token and a human form of Lhranc will spawn. Hail the human form and he attacks. Kill him.
This guy doesn’t mess around, so bring a few groups in era. He is still relatively hard even in PoP era so bring a few friends to help. He procs a 500 point lifetap and has a lot of HP (32k?). He also runs at low HP. Consider this a mini raid boss. Once dead, Marl Kastane will spawn just outside Lhranc’s room. **get an invis here once trade window is open if you skipped factioning** Give Marl Kastane Lhranc’s Token to receive
