Complete the Trial of Shadow by luring 20 Weeping Souls into the shadow runes without getting touched.
- Shadow Trial Completed
Let us not be confined by the bounds of the mage repertoire of magic. I, for one, choose not to be classist. Necromancy can just be so much fun!
Touch the Shadow Crystal to open a portal to my Trial of Shadow. Once there, move to the Altar when you are ready to begin.
Weeping Souls shall begin to pursue you... your goal is simply to drag them into the traps. And be sure not to let them touch you.
I like the way you move, apprentice.
Don't you worry about where I got all the souls from. They were obtained in a perfectly humane manner, I assure you.
You will receive:
- 1350 XP
- Fairly straightforward. The shades will spawn from one of the portals and chase in a fairly straight line. Have them follow you into a rune. There will be multiple shades that spawn, and they do like to flank, so be aware of your surroundings!
- If the altar isn't there when you arrive, just wait for a few minutes. Chances are someone was working on the quest.
