Start Location: Lataua (), Zu
Lataua tells you, "Poor, poor spirit... I sense the horror that lies
beneath your conscious mind. A hidden canker eats slowly at your soul. But it is
never too late to seek the blessing of the Light. If you truly wish to cleanse
yourself of the taint of chaos, speak to me again."
"Here, take this talisman. It, and it alone, holds the key to your salvation. Only through great and selfless deeds can you purify yourself. First you must make a true decision to cleanse yourself. Seek out the Dark Agent. She will attempt to change your mind. If you are true of purpose, you will speak to her and remain steadfast. Return to me afterwards."
Travel to and speak with The Dark Agent (36.0N, 70.6E).
The Dark Agent tells you, "So... you think to renounce your path into darkness? But there is forgiveness as well as power in the darkness. Give me your talisman, give up your fruitless quest for absolution, and I will instruct you further on your true path."
Do not give the necklace to the Dark Agent, doing so will make you loose the ability to complete this quest or Retracing the Path quests ever again. The choice is Undoable. Return to Lataua () in Zu.
Lataua tells you, "Good, you have kept to your purpose. Now, perhaps, if you meditate on the talisman, you will learn of some opportunity to prove yourself."
Use the necklace.
Lataua tells you, "Ah, you have received a vision of the great Scriptorium of the Order of Dereth. There must be something there that is in danger, or which must be defended. Speak to the Hand of Asheron, tell him of your quest, and perhaps he will permit you to enter."
Part I - Defending the Order Scriptorium
Go to and speak with the Hand of Asheron (10.1N, 62.0E) in Ikeras to access the Order kingdom's Scriptorium.
Hand of Asheron tells you, "Why should I grant thee access to the Scriptorium? What? Lataua asks this? Very well...."
Inside you will need to fight Renegade Swordsmen (level 50 Melee Humans) that are fighting Scriptorium Guards and Scribes. The Renegades will attack you and they have very powerfull stun attack with combat speed reduction. If you AOE the Guards can agro you so be carefull. This is the same dungeon of crossed in part 1 of Path into Dark. Just keep going straight forward until you arrive at the stairs room. On top you will find the Renegade Leader (level 55) with 2 adds. Defeat the leader to advance the quest (every member of fellow needs to kill it) and return to Lataua
Lataua tells you, "Well done! Next, the Lens of Perception is again under threat."
Part II - Protecting the Virindi Museum
Use your necklace to advance the quest then travel to Ikeras and talk to the Virindi Adumbrator near the Ikeras Nexus.
Virindi Adumbrator tells you, "Greetings, fellow servant. I perceive you wish to visit Dominion Center."
Teleport to Virindi Citadel and
talk to the first Virindi Monitor to enter the Virindi museum. Get to the top
Renegade Mages (level 50 Magic) on the way. Kill the Renegade Archmage
(level 55) at the top platform. Everyone in fellow need to kill the Archmage to
advances the quest (around 2 min to respawn).
Return to Lataua (use portal recall if you have it) and talk to her to advance the quest.
Lataua tells you, "Excellent. Another task awaits, however. The Codex of Shadows will be stolen if you do not intervene. Speak to Naokim."
Part III - Guarding the Shadow Vault
For the last time use your necklace to advance the quest. You must now enter the Shadow Vault and protect the Codex. Speak to Naokim (10.9N, 62.3E) in the Shadow Antechamber in Ikeras and he will port you to the Vault.
Naokim tells you, "Lataua... I know of her though we have never met. We are of different worlds, informed by different spirits, yet I respect her judgment. Go to the vault then, and do not give me cause to regret my decision."
In the Vault you will
fight several Renegade Archers (level 50 Missile) and work your way down to the
levers area of the dungeon. The Renegade Captain (level 55) is located in the
center doorway area just before where you found the codex in path of darkness.
To get there remember the way you opened the doors in path of darkness (see map bellow). Just need to keep using levers until the left door opens and then proceed using the levers in the end of each row so you can progress to the codex room.
Everyone in fellow needs to defeat the boss and then return to Lataua in Zu to complete the quest, and remove the Chaos Corruption!
Lataua tells you, "Remarkable! I sense the darkness within your soul has retreated from you. Its power was great, far greater than yours or mine. Yet it could not resist your determination to resist it. I congratulate you on the steadfastness of your resolve."
