Hello again, fellow RIFTers. It’s time to wrap up the Ember Isle Guardian Quest Guide with Part 3, the final installment in this series. If you missed the other parts, here they are: Part 1 and Part 2. We left off last time at the journey toward Fell Fields. Let’s jump right to the action.
Area Thirteen: Fell Fields
- Investigate Fell Fields
- Collect Water
- Bless the Water at the Shrine
- Extinguish the Fallen Farclan with the Blessed Water 0/4
This area’s a bit of a pain to navigate. There is a Sourcewell with an Onslaught quest at around [13285, 3772]. Climb up the mountain to trigger the first part of the quest near a dwarf skeleton. Before you begin the last part, make sure and grab the following quest at [13439, 3871]:
- Take scans of lava pools 0/8
Once you have both quests, jump down to the lava and stone paths that snake through it. Don’t stand in the lava too long, else you’ll take damage from it. To take the scans, stand directly next to the spurts in the lava, as pictured. After you’re done playing in the lava, grab a quest from the altar at [13214, 3912]:
- Kill Infernal Parasites 0/8
- Kill Nak
- Kill Skug
- Kill Tuzk
Also grab this quest at [13248, 3992]:
- Collect Idols of Maelforge 0/5
That’s it for this area. Head back to Farhall to turn in the story quest, then head out to Kheramos Village via the Abundant Wilds stone.
Area Fourteen: Kheramos Village
- Get covered with Mud
- Dance in the Fire
- Collect 3 Scraps and make a Disguise
- Put on Goblin Disguise
- Spy on Karris while wearing the Disguise
The costume in the fourth part lasts four minutes, so you can either put it on and avoid enemies as you hike toward Karris by foot, or you can kill your way there, grab quests, and slap on the costume when approaching the area. Either way, in a hut near the bonfire, make sure and grab a book at [13809, 4546]:
- Find the Discarded Scroll
- Find the Ritual Dagger
- Find the Kelari Priest’s Candle
The dagger’s at the very top of the tower, and the candle is in a windowsill outside of a hut. Also make sure and grab this quest off of a fallen Keeper at [13491, 4569]:
- Perform last rites on Deceased Keepers 0/7
In the center of the ruins, the Onslaught daily can be found. On the way to spy Karris, grab a quest off a Keeper spirit at [13694, 4594]:
- Kill Ashen Pyrkari 0/7
- Kill Charcoal
- Kill Soot
Soot’s located in the middle portion of the tower. If you happen to have the area’s daily from Ember Watch, you can do it here:
- Collect Bucket of Well Water
- Put Out House Fires and kill Pyre Flames 0/5
Try and grab the bucket early on while wandering around, since enemies seem to respawn fairly quick. When finished with everything, grab the Obsidian Shore Travel Stone. It’ll be handy after heading back to Farhall.
Area Fifteen: Obsidian Shore
- Investigate the Fate of the Malgams
- Collect Broken Malgam Parts 0/5
- Capture Pyrkari Ghosts 0/4
- Reassemble the Malgam in Farhall
- Speak to the Reassembled Malgan
The ghosts can be captured once they are below 50% health. Save the Farhall parts for after you’re otherwise done with the area. When reassembling, head to the Forge of Creation to complete your task. As for the rest of Obsidian Shore, grab the area’s Onslaught quest, which is located beneath the bridge. The screenshot to the right shows a fire at [13945, 4245]. Grab this quest:
- Kill Ifrit Scorchers 0/8
- Kill Sulfus
- Kill Kindil
Go toward Fell Fields and grab a quest from a spirit at [13625, 3947]:
- Reveal and collect Keeper Remains 0/6
The remains look like smokey rock piles. That’s it for this area.
Area Sixteen: Temple of Marakris
- Confront Karris
- Destroy the Turned Malgams
- Speak with Borrin Gammult at Searing Brink
This area’s pretty straightforward. The Onslaught area is directly in the center of the ruins. To the south, you’ll find a body with a quest at [13469, 3287], as pictured:
- Disarm Rusted Traps 0/6
When finished, head to Searing Brink for the new quest area, and the area leading up to the series’ completion. Head north up through Obsidian Shore and Mount Carcera until you reach a cave. Go through it to find Searing Brink. A Spirit Infusion is the quest reward.
Area Seventeen: Searing Brink
- Seal Volcanic Vents 0/5
- Kill Magma Spouts to reveal and kill the Magma Lord
To get to the Magma Lord, head up the hill a bit. Clear all the little guys to summon him.
- Collect Reliquary Fragments from Wanton Priests on the ledge above 0/6
- Rebuild the Reliquary of Bahralt
- Collect the Seal of Bahralt
This quest can be a little annoying. Head north, then up the second inclined path. The mob concentration is high here. Clear a path toward the east, which is where you’ll need to go for the second step. Be on the lookout for Magma Fissures along the way. They’re a minor annoyance, but take a bit to finish off. When done, loot the coin-like object shining in the air above the box.
- Overload Karris’ Volcanic Fissure
- Place the Seal of Bahralt on the Ancient Pedestal
- Defeat Karris
This one can be difficult to find. Go up the path that leads to the Ember Lord fight, then head down the opposite way. While heading down this path, there’s a statue that looks like it’s against a wall. That wall is really a tunnel. Head through it. Here’s a picture of what the statue looks like. When finished, head back to Borrin.
- Defeat Karris
You’ll face a soloable four stage rift. Afterwards, mission complete! As a reward, you’ll get another Spirit Infusion.
- Speak with Solya Karini at Farhall
Back to Farhall now. As a reward for the entire chain, you’ll get some decent Epic legs and another Spirit Infusion. The legs are around T1 raid quality.
- Speak with Darius at Ember Watch
One more reward! Embri, a spirit pet. He’s pictured here to the right.
Loose Ends and Dailies
- Defend the North Tether
- Defend the South Tether
Feel free to do this quest at your convenience. It was the chain started in Ember Watch. Upon completion, you get a nice weekly quest, so it’s probably worth doing early. The quest’s location is technically in Ashen Fault. Fight off each wave of enemies. When you turn it in, you gain access to:
- Collect Sourcewell Energy Caches from Scerrion, Ochrin, Ithkus, or Alltha 0/4
As a reward for the weekly, you get 10 Inscribed Sourcestones.
After completing the story quests, you’ll gain access to a daily quest in Farhall and one in Fort Zarnost. There are numerous possibilities for each daily, of course, but here are some of them, starting with the Farhall dailies:
- Drink Mush Milk
- Collect Fish 0/5
The milk is located in any of the fisherman’s boats in Tidewell Inlet. The fish are in the same area.
- Clear out Vermin 0/5
These are the crates around Farhall. Here are some of the Fort Zarnost dailies:
- Reveal and kill the Menacing Spirit
- Reveal and kill the Mocking Spirit
- Reveal and kill the Taunting Spirit
These are all around the fort.
- Fire Malgam Launchers 0/4
This signals the completion to this guide. Now, onwards and upwards to Ember Isle faction grinding! There may very well be daily quests that I did not cover in this guide. Enjoy discovering them in your travels. Have fun on the Isle, folks.
