Arcanist Doan
He needs to die quickly.

Eliminate Houndmaster Loksey and Arcanist Doan.


We need to eliminate the Scarlet Monastery's defenses before a true invasion can begin. Venture deep into here, their library, and assassinate Houndmaster Loksey and Arcanist Doan. They maintain the powerful defenses that protect their comrades.

My own magic will ensure your actions go undetected by the rest of the monastery. Once they are dead, I can summon in additional reinforcements to aid in our attack.

We must be successful, <name>, the Dark Lady will not tolerate failure in the slightest.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:

Inv jewelry ring 85.png [Band of the Arcanist]

You will also receive: 1g 33s


I knew I could count on you! These fools will never know what hit them.


On accept:

Dark Ranger Velonara whispers: Move quickly, <name>. Your work will be for nothing if Mograine notices us before your work is done.

This is the first post-Cataclysm quest in the library wing of the Scarlet Monastery. Velonara stands just inside the library wing.
