Objectives Edit

Destroy the drake champion of the Green Flight, Somnus. Take his skull and return it to Emberstrife.


Items Needed:

  • The Skull of Somnus

Quest Text Edit

"Just as our Father crushes the Aspects themselves, so too must we strive to bring chaos and destruction to their children.

You must test your battle prowess against the sleepless dreamers: The children of the Green Flight.

Travel to the Swamp of Sorrows and track down Somnus, drake champion of the Green Flight. Let flow your hatred; dominate the insect... Return to me with his skull..."

Progress Edit

"Do not return here until you have bathed in the blood of our enemies and drank in their suffering."

Completion Edit

"One of ssseveral complete..."


"Another Complete."


"The most hated remainsss..."

Notes Edit

Somnus wanders around the lake in eastern Swamp of Sorrows, the same lake that the Sunken Temple has sunken into. Somnus is easily the hardest of the three dragons as he hits hard and has the ability to sleep people; if this happens to your only healer, it's bad news.
