Quest Overview

Retrieve essences from the three Virindi dungeons to power the crafting forges for upgraded forge spells and experience rewards. They can also be given to the Arcanum for writs of refuge.

Walk Through

  1. Go to each of the three Power Forge dungeons and kill the Virindi Overseer there. Each Overseer drops a ring, Forge Essence and Inner Sea Directive.
    • Each dungeon has the same layout, the only difference is that the higher level restricted dungeons have more formidable creatures.
  2. You now have 2 options for turning in for rewards:
    1. Option 1: Take the essence to an Agent of the Arcanum for a Writ and experience reward.
    2. Option 2: Give the essence to any crafting forge in one of the starter towns to receive experience, MMDs, and to upgrade all forges from a Master [Craft Name]'s Boon (3 minutes) to a Master [Craft Name]'s Greater Boon (6 minutes).
    • Note 1: The experience rewards are the same no matter which you choose, however, you must choose option 2 if you want to receive MMDs and for the quest to count towards the 50-100 Contracts Quest.
    • Note 2: All 3 power forges are on separate timers.
