Quest Series
Quest lists direct from our database:

Mobs here are all 52 and hit like trucks. A partner is recommended for simple questing here. Sourcewell defense will work best with a full group. Monsters at Dormant Core are Elite.

To do the story quests, unless you are in full T1 raid gear or better you are at least gonna want a partner to do them with. Small groups of three would probably be best.

In a departure from the way we have done past Quest Series pages, rather than only listing locations if they have quests that start there, we are listing ALL of the Scenes in the zone. The three camps with Porticulums come first, but after that all Scenes are listed in alphabetical order. If we have died in an area and respawned, we will list the location of the graveyard that you go to (it is not always in the same area).

All Daily quests in Ember Isle reward 4950 XP, 31 50 , 1 Ember Isle Reward Bag and +250 with The Keepers.

In this zone you will find attackable mobjects, such as Tangleflower. Some will appear weakened, already hurt, and an easy target. It's a trap! Smacking the mobject will almost instantly produce three level 52 mobs that will devour you!

Every, or nearly every, scene in this zone has a Sourcewell, and whereever you find a Sourcewell you find a Keeper, and that means an Onslaught quest. So if you see a Sourcewell somewhere that we do not list an Onslaught quest for, just assume we have not found it yet.

Also, most scenes will have one to two objects in the area that start a quest, and at least one of the common mobs in the area will drop an item that starts a quest to kill more of the same mob. We may have not yet found them all.

One thing that is new, quest-wise, is Temporary Skills. Some quests will give you a new skill that is just for the duration of the quest. The icon for this skill will appear in the center of your screen, just above your hotbars.


Guards at the doors of Atia and Farhall will attack those of the opposite alignment on sight. Combat with these guards will auto-flag you for PvP.


Each faction has a quest that starts in their home city and leads you to the Travelstones and Ember Isle.

Fugly Widget - On the rickety platform near Snerkle

  • Click on the Fugly Widget and many pyrkari will appear on the ground below. Target one near the middle and click the Paint Target temporary skill. This changes you into a Keeper Bomb about a mile up in the air (and falling fast). When you land, if you hit one, you explode in a green ball and kill all the pyrkari, knock them down like bowling pins, and change back into yourself. Be sure you are healed up before you do it as they will all get ONE hit on you before you explode.
