Locus-Walker: As you have surely gathered by now, a certain subset of my people have tragically succumbed to the call of the Void.
I had hoped to find more who possess the necessary strength of mind. I am disappointed to find such an utter lack of resistance.
It cannot be helped. To advance your cause, and mine, we will need to eradicate these weak-willed beings.
Slay 15 Shadowguard Ethereals.
Alleria Windrunner: I think I understand what he was trying to show us, (name).
I feel a surge of power building ahead. They must be cultivating the Void, calling it here.
We need to stop them before they plunge this entire city into shadow. Find the source and cut it off by any means necessary.
Locus Walker and I have unfinished business.
Deactivate 5 Void Harvesters.
Alleria Windrunner: That was Locus-Walker. He taught me all that I know about the Void, and he still has more to teach me.
If he is here, then the ethereals’ presence only intrigues me further. I had thought him the only one of his kind, but now that I have seen another tangling with the Void…
Come, we must play his game if we want to learn what he knows. He appears to have gone toward the Umbra Hollows to the north.
Investigate the Umbra Hollows with Alleria and Locus-Walker.
Alleria Windrunner: Whatever called to him, it cannot have good intentions. We need to go in after him.
Before we step through this portal, (name)… ensure you are prepared to fight. The Void’s influence is rarely peaceful.
Enter the Void Tear and deal with Arkhaan.
Arkhaan: Arkhaan remembers. He remembers something that will… yes… will save us.
Follow Arkhaan. Isolon calls! We will offer soft words to the Light. The Light will banish the darkness.
(Arkhaan eyes Alleria warily.)
Arkhaan will watch that one closely.
Follow Arkhaan to Isolon.
Arkhaan: Darkness envelops us… the Light has gone from this place…
(Arkhaan mumbles to himself before noticing you are still talking to him.)
Arkhaan could not save them. Brothers. Sisters. Whispers twisted them. The Light cannot see them. It turns away from us.
(Arkhaan stares off into space.)
Slay 12 Broken in Oronaar Collapse.
(As you near the statue, a somber voice fills your mind.)
Prayer Effigy: “You must resist the shadow’s pull. Come to me, brothers and sisters. Be whole within the Light.
Let Arkhaan show you the way home.”
(The rest of the message is garbled, though the nearby Broken seem to be gnawing on pieces of the statue.)
Collect 5 Fragmented Prayers.
Alleria Windrunner: This Broken still retains some of his sanity, though not all of it.
I can sense some Void influence nearby, but it is isolated to small pockets. Dispelling these manifestations should help our friend here clear his mind.
Perhaps we can use the prayer fragments you found, as they still contain some Light energy.
I will try and make sense of his chattering in the meantime. Perhaps we can learn something about what is happening here.
Dispel 5 Void Manifestations.
Alleria Windrunner: Ethereals, the Void, a Dark Naaru… I feel they are all connected.
I explored the ruins below while you and Velen were seeking the Crown. There are survivors, (name).
Broken wander the cluster of buildings to our west- I cannot understand much of what they say but I suspect that their minds are not their own.
If the Void is to blame, we will need to start our investigation there.
I will conduct my own search in the meantime.
Investigate the Ruins of Oronaar.
Prophet Velen: Even with the Sigil of Awakening in hand, the Crown cannot save us until it is whole.
That is why we must enter the Seat of the Triumvirate, even knowing that L’ura awaits us there.
This is a dire task, one that I would not ask if it were not completely necessary.
We will descend together. Come.
Seek the Crest of Knowledge.
