Find Jayla, the Keeper of Lore (The Grand Library).

You say, 'Thank you Jayla.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'As mentioned, while I don't want you dealing with these shadows, I still have other tasks of great importance. My Council and I have been searching for an...interesting...artifact for quite some time. I want you to get it for me.'
You say, 'What is it?'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'It's difficult to explain if you don't know the entire story, which I'm not going to tell you. Even you haven't proven yourself that trustworthy yet. Soon... perhaps. We believe that the item currently lies at the bottom of the gorge in the Deepshade, a cave system only recently uncovered. We had thought it lost for a very long time, and perhaps it was. The Vah's new home gives us the opportunity to retrieve this relic. I can count on one hand the number of people that know about this artifact's existence. I trust you will keep it that way.'
You say, 'You have my word.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'And I will hold you to it. Go and find this artifact for me, playername. Do not disturb me until you do.'
Note: Jayla has entrusted me with the knowledge of the whereabouts of an apparently incredibly important relic. It is said to lie in the gorge in the Deepshade. I must retrieve it for her.

Head to The Deepshade and in the gorge, kill Kirt`sek bugs until A Mysterious Figure appears at loc: (622, 696, -629)

A Mysterious Figure appears in a flash of light.
A Mysterious Figure says, 'What's the matter, Councilor? Unsure how to get the artifact out of the rock? I guess Jayla didn't give her favorite new puppet that particular bit of information, did she?'
A Mysterious Figure says, 'Luckily, I'm here. All it takes is a little wave of the hand...'
As the mysterious figure waves his hand over the rock formation, the light inside the rock begins to glow brighter.
The glowing light passes through the top of the rock and into the hand of the mysterious figure.
A Mysterious Figure says, 'Thanks for clearing the way, fools. Go tell Jayla you failed and that I won! I'm sure it won't be the last time, either.'
A Mysterious Figure flourishes the glowing item before disappearing in a flash of light. You notice something fall from his pocket onto the cave floor.


Collect the ground spawn A Piece of Amulet that A Mysterious Figure leaves behind.

Return the A Piece of Amulet to Jayla, the Keeper of Lore.

Jayla, the Keeper of Lore frowns. 'This is clearly not the item I sent you to retrieve. Perhaps you have made a mistake.'
You say, 'There were complications.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore glances down at the piece of amulet. Understanding lights her eyes. 'I see. Someone was waiting for you, and they took the artifact? But somehow left this behind. Do you know what this amulet represents?'
You say, 'I've never seen it before.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'And you wouldn't have. It is an item I only give to my most trusted Councilors. It allows us to communicate freely, no matter the distance between us and also allows me to summon them to me at any time.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore takes out an amulet from beneath her robe and covers it with both her hands. A faint glow begins to emanate from the amulet. Jayla, the Keeper of Lore looks visibly shaken. 'Supara...I can't believe it. After all these years.'Jayla, the Keeper of Lore looks at you. Speak with me after the Council has left, <Player Name>.
You say, 'Hail, Jayla, the Keeper of Lore'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'These are potentially dark times for the Athenaeum, <Player Name>. Depending on who Supara has aligned with, or who is using him...the information he knows. It's not safe...for anyone. Find him for me, <Player Name>. Before it is too late. Be careful that you do not warn him of your involvement with me. He will be overly cautious after showing his hand.'

Go to entrance of the Sanctum (where Lady Shaina resides) in Valley of Erimal.

You notice a mysterious looking figure through the gate ahead.

Your journal has been updated. [The High Price of Knowledge]

Return once again to Jayla, the Keeper of Lore.

You say, 'Hail, Jayla, the Keeper of Lore'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'It is as I feared, then. Supara has chosen his side. I had hoped Shaina would be the last, but alas...A lesson must be taught from this, <Player Name>.'
You say, 'A lesson?'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'I do not give my trust easily, and I expect it to be returned in full, especially from those that I deem as worthy as I did Supara. He has chosen to betray that trust, and thus a lesson must be taught.'
You say, 'I'm not sure I follow you.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'It's simple, <Player Name>. I will punish him, and in so doing, teach a lesson to anyone else harboring thoughts of betrayal, and at the same time, protect the secrets that I entrusted to him.'
You say, 'What kind of punishment.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'The worst kind, <Player Name>. A punishment fitting for the nature of the act. I'm going to destroy his mind, and you are going to help me.'
You say, 'Oh.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'Supara has made his bed. In the history of my time among Dalayans, I have only used this punishment one other time. Trust me when I say that I do not resort to it at the drop of a hat. The mind is sacred, but Supara has left me no other choice.'
You say, 'What do you want me to do?'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'The spell requires multiple physical components, which for obvious reasons, I don't keep a supply of here in the Athenaeum. You will collect them for me.'
You say, 'What components?'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'I will need the blood of a golem that guards an ancient evil, a fin from one that lives in the depths, a focused channeling stone, and a sample from the brain of a horrific creature. Bring these items to me and we will proceed. If you wish, you can hand them to me individually and I will examine them to ensure they are what I will need for this spell.'

Gather and give to Jayla, the Keeper of Lore:

  • Golem Blood
  • Brain Matter
  • A Tasdrakh Fin
  • Focused Channeling Stone
Note: The dropped items only drop when someone who is flagged for this part of the quest participates in the killing of the mobs.
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'Excellent, <Player Name>>. Now I need you to go collect Supara for me.'
You say, 'How am I supposed to do that?'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'For many reasons, I am unable to travel to the Valley of Erimal. Someone there has seen to that. To say I would be unwelcome would be a laughable understatement. You, though, can go there, find Supara, and get him for me.'
You say, 'I don't think he will just come back willingly.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'Yes, you are right about that. Press this amulet into his hand when you think he is weak enough to no longer resist. It will send my...staff...his location and they will be able to bring him here. Once you have succeeded in this, return here as well. If you can't find him, ask around Erimal. I'm sure someone will have noticed a newcomer like him.'

You receive Beacon Amulet from Jayla, the Keeper of Lore.

Head to the Valley of Erimal and talk to the Innkeeper. You will be given a hint that Supara is near the Athenaeum. (The place where you turn in Ancient/Relic Scrolls and buy Codex of Power). I recommend having a balanced group wait at the grassy area towards Warrens.

Approaching the Athenaeum will trigger an event...

Supara stops as he sees you. 'Is this the best that Jayla has to send? And how exactly do you exp...'
Supara says, 'You've got one of those damn amulets, don't you. I can feel it. That means she wants you to take me back there, which means...No way, you won't get me back in that damn library ever again!
Supara begins to cast a spell.
Supara shakes in anger. 'That amulet is more powerful than I thought! It will take me some time to gather the energy to break through!
Supara begins to cast a spell.
Note: At this point, Supara disappears. You need to run as fast as you can towards the grassy area up top towards the Warrens where Supara will be waiting. If you're too slow, you'll have to go re-trigger the event and try to run faster.
Supara says, 'Damnit, why can't you just mind your own business? Maybe this will keep you occupied while I make my escape.
Supara reaches into his robe and pulls out a vial, which he smashes against the ground at his feet.

Supara will flee again and spawn a yellow con mob called A Summoned Guardian that rampages and enrages. When it dies, run a bit east to find Supara again.

Supara says, 'These vials cost me a ton of money! I hope they were worth it!
Supara reaches into his robe and pulls out another vial, which he smashes against the ground at his feet. Supara is surrounded by a shimmer of light. Supara begins to cast a spell.

Supara will again flee and spawn another A Summoned Guardian. This one rampages, enrages, uses devastating blow and has a fire AoE that hits for a few hundred that he uses every 12 seconds or so. When this dies, again head east to find Supara. Attack him.

Supara stops his spellcasting. 'Fine, we'll do this the hard way!

When his HP reaches (Unknown):

Supara shouts, 'Cold master, I implore you! Have I not served you well? Protect your loyal servant!'
a hostile shadow moans and grasps for the heart!

He summons many A hostile shadow to attack you. They all flurry, but have relatively few HP and do not hit very hard. At around 30% HP on Supara:

Supara gasps in pain. 'Stop...stop...I'm sorry, master...'

Trade him the Beacon Amulet now. He will disappear.

Supara begins to cry softly as the amulet is pressed into his hand, before vanishing in a flash of light.

A divine hoard (Valley of Erimal • Flare Fiend lava pit) chest mob will appear. Kill it and loot.

Return to Jayla, the Keeper of Lore

You say, 'Hail, Jayla, the Keeper of Lore'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'A job well done, <Player Name>. Now, witness my ultimate punishment.'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore reaches into her robe and pulls out a vial of thick, brown liquid.
Supara begins to whimper, but seems unable to move. You notice tendrils of mist snaking out from the globe that are holding him in place.
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore unstoppers the vial and pours its contents into Supara's ear.
Supara opens his mouth in a silent scream. He falls to the ground and begins to convulse.
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore turns her back on Supara and walks away.
The light fades from Supara's eyes as the convulsions stop. He continues to breathe, but that is the only sign that he is still alive.
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'Come, speak with me <Player Name>'
You notice a tear slide down Jayla's face as she turns to you.
You say, 'Hail, Jayla, the Keeper of Lore'
Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'Supara was one of my oldest friends. I believed that he would always be by my side. The events of the past few days have truly upset me, <Player Name>. But I do want to thank you for your help in this matter. As much as it pains me, I am glad that Supara has been stopped. The Seekers should not have someone of his knowledge amongst them. Please, give me your badge and I will bestow upon you the highest ranking of my order.'

Your journal has been updated. [The High Price of Knowledge]

Jayla, the Keeper of Lore says, 'The list of those that have received this badge is very short, <Player Name>. And now yours is etched upon it for all time. Wear this badge with pride, High Councilor <Player Name>. If for whatever reason it does not suit your needs, return it to me for a different enchantment.'

You receive High Councilor's Badge of Jayla from Jayla, the Keeper of Lore.

You have completed a quest. [The High Price of Knowledge]
