This quest unlocks zone access for your entire account (without combat) in high level zones, therefore, completing it on your highest level, best-geared character is advised.
While this is true, there are NO QUESTS, and therefore No Way To Gain Faction with any Kunark Ascending beings without finishing this quest and/or the Tradeskill line. Be aware that this timeline gives you faction with part of Obulus Frontier, and the Tradeskill side gives faction with another part, and ne're the twain do meet. You don't have to do both, but Tradeskillers who only do that line will be unable (AFAIK) to gain faction with Nye'Caelona, which is needed for the mount/secondary upgrade merchant
Collect an Arcane Gate Seal spell somewhere behind the second door to the left after zone in. The location is random but not gated behind aggro mobs. It looks like a sheet of paper that is flapping in a breeze (see example to the right).
Note: pages found in either Library with podium ( 127, 2, 7 ) /waypoint 127, 2, 7, or "Binding room" on table against wall ( 155, 3, -70 ) /waypoint 155, 3, -70

Find the crystal for the damaged portal anchor at a random location in the room at ( -48, 4, 20 ) /waypoint -48, 4, 20. This is a blue shard or orb somewhere on the floor.

Click the teleporter behind you at ( 53, 1, 21 ) /waypoint 53, 1, 21.
Speak to Queen Alwenielle. Follow her to the crystal.
