How to Start Speak to a Guide in Cardin Ward

What does this information mean?

NotesEdit

  1. The guide is not always there
  2. The quest will be offered to the whole group, but it can't be shared
  3. You only need the guide to start the quest, there is no time limit to finish the quest
  4. If low level, one MUST be mentored, or the kills will not update quest.

Steps Edit

  1. Find Naylie DelANews in Phantom Sea ( -44, 31, 961 ) /waypoint -44, 31, 961
  2. Kill undead rangers for vellum ( 192, 61, 852 ) /waypoint 192, 61, 852
  3. Get ink from savage entanglers, east coast off Kithicor Island, around ( -145, 3, 205 ) /waypoint -145, 3, 205.
    • Note: If you cannot find savage entanglers, kill the eels and snappers (non-aggro) in the water in this area as they are place holders, or switch instances of Phantom Seas
    • Note: It will be faster when you just fly above the water to spot them, instead of swimming around.
  4. Return to Naylie

  9. Locate Highpass ( 769, 328, 104 ) /waypoint 769, 328, 104 or anywhere along that path to Castle Highhold

  12. Return to Naylie
  13. Look for 11 spirits of the lost Newsies in major cities and pick up their residual magic residue. Make sure to click on the ground spawn after they are released. (You can ask guards to locate “newsie”)

      • Additional Note: You do not need to travel all over to release all of the spirits. As of August, 2015, each repops within 90 minutes (may be quicker) and gives credit for being released again. (You can speed up the process with those that a clustered close together.)
