What does this information mean?


  1. Click on the portal that the Duality opened
  2. Go up the steps to Mayong's research library
    • As soon as you enter the room a vigilant Mistmoore guardian (scaled 4-5 levels above you, but incredibly weak - one hit kills him usually) spawns and begins patrolling the hallway, eventually entering the library. You can kill him but another one will spawn, or you can move to the other end of room and wait for him to leave Note: the 'weakness" might be class or level dependent. While a mere 6 levels above my adventure level, it was still a 3 up-arrow heroic, that not only survived many shots, but also killed a level 55 ranger that even managed to use stealth abilities.
  3. Gather 5 Mistmoore's Research Notes from around the room
  4. Craft Transcript of Mistmoore's Research Notes (Transcribe Research Notes) at an Engraved Desk
    • There are desks in Mayong's library ( 105, 6, 88 ) /waypoint 105, 6, 88 and in the Duality's Sanctum ( 525, 130, -61 ) /waypoint 525, 130, -61
  5. Talk to the Duality in his sanctum
