The image of the Runecarver left by the Primus

Meet with the Primus within Keeper's Respite to form a new plan of attack.

  • Return to Keeper's Respite


The Jailer has four of the five sigils required for what he is planning.

He is a fool for allowing us to live. His desire to see us bend to his will shall be his undoing.

All is not lost, if you are willing to put in the work. There is still something that can be done.

Come. I would meet with the rest of your forces and formulate our next attack.


You will receive:


We will dwell on our past mistakes when this is over. For now, we must move forward.

You aided me during my imprisonment as the Runecarver. Take this as a token of my gratitude.


On accept:

The Primus says: There are still those who need the skills of the Runecarver. I will leave an echo of what I was here to aid them.
The Primus summons an image of the Runecarver back in his usual spot.
The Primus says: Broken. Chained. This is the fate Zovaal intends for all existence.
The Primus says: Come. The covenants must be told of my return.
The Primus shrinks himself down small enough to fit through the portal back to the Torghast Antechamber.

The Primus... mid-sized?

No teleport is provided back to Keeper's Respite in Korthia, so head back using the Animaflow Teleporter from Ve'nari's Refuge. At the respite, Heirmir has set up shop atop a rock, and the Primus is having a meeting with Bolvar and Tal-Galan:

Highlord Bolvar Fordragon says: We are honored to have you among us, Primus. What is our course now that the Jailer has your sigil?
The Primus says: The mortals must face Zovaal in his sanctum. But as you know, a wise strategist always prepares contingencies.
The Primus says: The covenants have grown stronger, but are not yet whole. Each must remember its purpose... and find its future.
The Primus says: When this comes to pass, new sigils can be forged. They will be needed to pursue Zovaal, should our assault fail.
The Primus says: Highlord, send word to your allies in Oribos. They must defend the Arbiter's sigil at all costs.
The Primus says: Maw Walker, I will call for you when I am ready. May fortune favor us all.

The Primus then walks over to the edge of the cliff, where he remains standing permanently.

Alts of players who have already completed this quest will not receive a duplicate  [Memories of Sunless Skies].
