Your Adventure level must be 25 or higher to start this quest.
Your Crafting level must be Artisan level 9 or higher to complete this quest or have someone commission craft it for you.
You must enter the Cove of Decay to complete this quest (access quest no longer required).
Although a series of access quests (Cove of Decay - Prison Break) for this zone still exist, they are no longer required to enter certain instances in the zone. Cove of Decay is a heroic zone (changed from Epic x2), and easily mastered by a single group.
After doing this you can swim to the ocean floor and you will find some interactive chests on the ground ( -264, -50, 1322 ) /waypoint -264, -50, 1322. Inside one of them, you will find a Partially Digested Hand. Only one person has to do this.
Note: You cannot use a Partially Digested Hand that you have taken from a previous Cove of Decay instance. You must kill Octagorgon, retrieve the hand and spawn the Captain (step 2) all in the same instance run. (This is not correct. I just used the hand that I pickup yesterday to spawn the captain today)
Once you have the Partially Digested Hand, you must head onto the beach and you will find a firepit. The person who has the hand can interact with the remains in the Firepit (by right-clicking the firepit and choosing "Place the hand in the fire"). This will spawn a level 32 ^^^ Heroic mob, Captain Ulssissaris. Kill him and the quest will update.
Head to the Ruins of Varsoon and examine an interactive book on a table in the Workshop of the Enchanter ( 261, 0, 118 ) /waypoint 261, 0, 118. This room is just South of the entrance to the Chamber of Immortality.
