  • Meet Alleria and Locus-Walker


That was Locus-Walker. He taught me all that I know about the Void, and he still has more to teach me.

If he is here, then the ethereals' presence only intrigues me further. I had thought him the only one of his kind, but now that I have seen another tangling with the Void...

Come, we must play his game if we want to learn what he knows. He appears to have gone toward the Umbra Hollows to the north.


You will receive: 9g 70s 50 Veiled Argunite


Move quickly, or we may lose him.


<Alleria seems momentarily speechless.>


Quest accept
Alleria Windrunner says: This way.
Meet at Umbra Hollows
Locus-Walker says: I have something I want to show you, but we mustn't be seen. Follow.
Alleria Windrunner says: Explain yourself first.
Locus-Walker says: Such impatience. I believe you will find the answers you seek on the other side.
The Locus-Walker enters the void tear, soon after followed by Alleria.
Dismantled Portal examined
Shadowguard Voidcaster yells: There is plenty material for the harvest, here. Let none of it go to waste!
First catch-up with Alleria and Locus-Walker
Locus-Walker says: How industriously they work. A pity they will be overtaken.
Alleria Windrunner says: I sense a little disappointment. Was I really your best student?
Image of Saprish examined
Image of Saprish says: I will not give Locus-Walker the satisfaction of disrupting our efforts. Capture him at all costs.
Image of Saprish says: Do what you like with the fleshling and her ally. They are of no concern.
Second catch-up
Locus-Walker says: I had hoped to find at least one promising soul on this rock.
Alleria Windrunner says: I have not turned away from that path. You know why I resisted.
Voidforge examined
Shadowguard Voidcaster yells: Our work is nearly complete. Soon, all of Argus will fall to darkness!
Third catch-up
Alleria Windrunner says: I need to finish what I started, Locus-Walker.
Locus-Walker says: Can you, though? With your... attachments?
The group leaves the void tear.
Alleria Windrunner says: What are you talking about?
Locus-Walker says: Why, your mate of course. How does he feel about your choices?
Random mob conversations
Shadowguard Ethereal says: A pity he did not kill the elf and her ally, too.
  • Shadowguard Ethereal says: What was that?


  • This quest's name is a reference to the slang term "throwing shade”, meaning to subtly insult someone.
