Essence of Anguish

Destroy the Essence of Shadow, Essence of Darkness, and Essence of Anguish.


Our scouts have made a horrifying discovery, <name>.

The souls of the prisoners are being used to summon creatures from the void.

Inside, three beings of darkness already await - the Essence of Shadow, the Essence of Darkness, and the Essence of Anguish.

They must be destroyed immediately, before their power can be unleashed.


You will receive: 11g 80s


The souls of innocents were used to birth the foul creatures. All that is depraved, and sick, and twisted in this world, are embodied within them.


I knew I could trust this task to you, <name>.



Pick up A [10-40] Into Anguish, A [10-40] On the Offensive, A [10-40] The Great Salvation, and A [10-40] Across the Stars before heading in.

Run up the stairs and interact with the main doorway. Go through the entry building. Take a left to find the Mark of Shadows. Go a bit further to find the Essence of Shadow. Kill one of the Shadowmoon Prophets to attack it. Turn around and find the Mark of Anguish on the opposite side of the door. Past it is the Essence of Darkness over a hole to the lower level. Further west up the hill is the Mark of Darkness. Later, head to the east side of the area to find the Essence of Anguish in the Ancestor's Grotto.
