Part I - Defending the Order Scriptorium

Goto the Hand of Asheron in Ikeras and talk to him to access the Order kingdom's Scriptorium.

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 use Area of Effect spells the Guards can aggro 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 (16.7N, 73.7E).

Part II - Protecting the Virindi Museum

Now Lataua will send you to talk to the Virindi Adumbrator (10.4N, 63.2E) near Ikeras Nexus. He will Teleport you to Virindi Citadel and once inside talk to the first Virindi Monitor to enter the Virindi museum. Get to the top and fight 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 (16.7N, 73.7E) you can use portal recall if you have it and talk to her to advance the quest.

Part III - Guarding the Shadow Vault

Shadow Vault Map

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. In the Vault you will fitht 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 the fellowship needs to defeat the boss once this is done return to Lataua (16.7N, 73.7E) to complete the quest.
