Overview

Quest to kill the modified Harbinger, an experiment by The Progenitor.

  • Prodigal Harbinger does not share a timer with the other Harbinger quests.
Prerequisites
  1. If you have never done any version of the original Harbinger Quest, you will need one quest item to give to Issk or Vincadi to enter the Tunnels to the Harbinger. The items are all dropped randomly by certain creatures. Unlike, the other Harbinger Quests, the item (and final XP reward) is not tied with a skill.

Walkthrough & Notes

Part 1: Retrieving the Elemental Talisman

  1. Everyone needs the Elemental Talisman key to access the Prodigal Harbinger's lair.
  2. The Talisman is found in the Artifex Collegium dungeon located on the north part of the Singularity Caul at 91.9S, 93.7W. You will only need to do this once, as you can use the same talisman for future quests.
  3. Once inside the collegium, head north and take the east passage from the first large room you enter. From there, it's a linear path to the room with the Artifex of the Elements and the talisman (found on the floor). The Artifex drops the text Message to the Elemental Artifex.

Part 2: Tunnels to the Harbinger

  1. Just like the other Harbinger Quests, start by entering the Tunnels to the Harbinger, located next to Issk at 12.9S, 46.5E or Vincadi at 12.6S 46.7E.
    • Note: If you enter the Issk side, you are restricted from entering the Vincadi side and vice versa. Make sure everyone in your fellowship hands their item to the same NPC.
  2. Once inside, the dungeon is linear to the bottom (keep heading down). The only obstacles are a series of 5 jumps that must be made.
    • Jump 1: Acid Pit - Full jump ahead (land on invisible platform)
    • Jump 2: Lava Pit - Jump into the pit and take the hallway to the North
    • Jump 3: Ice Shelf - Shift-jump down onto the platform above the ice shelf, clear the spawn, and wait for your group.
    • Jump 4: Ice/Acid Pit Combo - Dispel, then shift Jump down onto the ice shelf and quicky run to the edge and full jump across the acid pit (land on invisible platform). The ice hurts, so be quick.
    • Jump 5: Staging Area - Shift jump down and quickly move to the south (near the portals).
  3. This is a good place to rebuff if needed; if not use the Essence Chambers.
  4. After using the portal it is imperative that you look behind you and find a Hollow on the wall.
    • Tip: It cannot be selected by using Next/Closest Item keys; it can only be seen by hovering over it with your mouse, using a program that enables Dungeon Light will make this easier.
  5. After everyone has found the Hollow, and can easily recognize and find it again, everyone needs to take their Elemental Talisman and give it to four Hollows. Each of these four are located behind each of the four Essences. If you give it to the hollow successfully there will be a message in green verifying as much.
  6. Ignore the portals which appear after all 4 essences have been killed. These portals are for the Essenceless Harbinger, not Prodigal!
  7. Return to the drop and hand the last talisman to the wall right right behind you. You will be portaled into Prodigal Harbinger's Antechamber.

Part 3: Prodigal Harbinger's Antechamber

  1. You will be teleported to one of four alcoves, overlooking Harbinger and several of his Elemental minions.
    • Note: Be careful, it is possible to take damage from the frozen cold when standing here.
  2. From here, its best to debuff everything in the room before jumping down.
  3. Once you kill Harbinger, loot a Corrupted Harbinger Blood from the floor and use the surface portal that spawns nearby. You MUST use the surface portal to flag for the rewards.
