  • This quest is mostly retired. You can still access the first test portal through the Portal Space Time Travel quest.

Walkthrough

Unfinished Business

  • Optional: Go to the Resonant Portal at 14.6S 62.2W. Double click the portal and you will get a green message but not be portaled anywhere. This will result in a slightly different response from the NPCs and the Test Portal but as far as we know does not give any benefit.
    • Route: Use the Izji Qo's Portal Device at your mansion.
  1. Talk to Marcus Manfried then Wren the Curious and he will direct you to enter the Test portal by double clicking it.
    If you didn't go to the Resonant Portal it will only portal you a short distance away.
    If you went to the Resonant Portal before you went to Mar'uun there is a chance you may get portaled to a strange area called the Portal Space Eddy where lots of portal space energy is flowing (it looks like the Portal Space dungeon from the Invoker quest). After a few seconds you will be portaled back to Mar'uun near the NPCs.
  2. Talk to the two NPCs again and you will be flagged to enter the Resonant Portal. It will now portal you to the top of the Crystalline Crag.

Who Watches the Virindi?

  1. Enter the Mar'uun portal at 10.6S, 17.1E.
  2. Talk to Marcus Manfried then Wren the Curious and he will direct you to enter the Enhanced Test portal by double clicking it.

Secrets of the Apostates

  • During this patch the Test Portal has become unstable so no experiments are possible.

Old Ghosts

  • With the destruction of Mar'uun, the Test Portal is still there, but does not function. There are corpses strewn about Mar'uun.
  • You will find a Scrap of Paper (Mar'uun) on the ground near where Kaywin once was.

Dialog

Unfinished Business

Using the Resonant Portal before visiting Mar'uun

The portal emanates an odd thrumming sound. The vibrations through the air seem foreign to even you, an experienced portal traveler.
Idle chat from Marcus and Wren

Marcus Manfried says, "Continue to monitor the mana flow."

Marcus Manfried says, "Examining portal differential."

Wren the Curious says, "Examination in process."

Wren the Curious says, "This is never going to work..."

Marcus Manfried says, "Don't get discouraged and be patient."

Marcus Manfried says, "We need to examine the properties associated with this modulation."

Wren the Curious says, "I'm examining the modulation of the portal... now."

Marcus Manfried says, "We're never going to make any progress at this rate. We need to bring in some test subjects."

Wren the Curious says, "When do we expect to get new test subjects?"

Marcus Manfried says, "We should have more subjects any time now. This place has no lack of adventurers."

Wren the Curious says, "Where did I place those documents..."

Marcus Manfried says, "We need to stay organized to maintain the validity of our experiments."
Opening dialog with Marcus, if you had not used the Resonant Portal

Marcus Manfried says, "Starting next iteration..."

Marcus Manfried tells you, "Sorry about that, I needed to finish initializing the current iteration of our portal experiments."

Marcus Manfried tells you, "Our current experimentation is intended to further understand and possibly bypass the restrictions of certain portals."

Marcus Manfried tells you, "This is only our current round of experiments. We're hoping to unlock all the secrets of portal space and time."

Marcus Manfried tells you, "You can talk to me again if you would like to assist us."

Marcus Manfried says, "Process complete. Observe the results and make the proper notations."

Wren the Curious tells you, "The process has been prepared. When you are ready use the test portal."
Opening dialog with Marcus, if you had used the Resonant Portal

Marcus Manfried tells you, "When you came in here I detected some indications that you've interacted with a portal with some strange properties. Could you
tell me about the portals you've encountered recently?"

You describe the long list of portals that you have interacted with recently.

Marcus Manfried tells you, "You've really been around haven't you?"

Marcus Manfried tells you, "Could you tell me more about the portal in the direlands surrounded by crystals?"

Marcus Manfried tells you, "Very good, I think I can help you out. Just talk to my assistant and he'll do what I believe is required to assist you in entering the portal you've described."

You describe everything you know about the resonant portal you found in the direlands.

Opening dialog with Marcus after using the test portal

Marcus Manfried tells you, "Thank you for all your assistance. We have gathered what we can from our understanding of your personal properties, the sum of the things you've done and how that interacted with our experimental portals."

Wren the Curious tells you, "Thank you for your assistance as a test subject. We could use more good subjects like you."

Marcus Manfried says, "Yes, we were able to obtain valuable information from the results of your portaling."
Using the Resonant Portal after completing testing

Your resonance is now properly in tune with that of the portal.

Resonant Portal teleports you with Crystalline Portal.

Who Watches the Virindi?

Marcus Manfried tells you, "We're starting a new round of experiments. Our last round of participants assisted greatly."

Marcus Manfried tells you, "We'd like to measure the changes in our previous subjects as well as taking in new subjects as this time."

Marcus Manfried tells you, "You can talk to me again if you would like to assist us."

Marcus Manfried tells you, "Talk to my assistant if you would like to participate in this round of testing. We've also been correcting the resonance of adventurers to match that of the portal found at what is now being called the Crystalline Crag. Simply pracipate in our test and we'll make sure you're set."

Wren the Curious says, "Are you back to help again or a new participant?"

Wren the Curious says, "Okay, I'll set up the correct tests. Talk to me when you're ready to go."

Wren the Curious tells you, "The process has been prepared. When you are ready use the test portal."

Secrets of the Apostates

Marcus Manfried tells you, "Our test portal has become unstable and we won't be able to continue our tests until we're able to stabilize it."

Marcus Manfried tells you, "We've heard of some very stange experiences from our test subjects that we're looking into also."

Marcus Manfried tells you, "There's nothing else that you can do for us now. Come back next month, we're hoping to have everything resolved by then."

Wren the Curious tells you, "I've been here adjusing this portal for days and we're no closer to having it stabilized."

Wren the Curious tells you, "Marcus doesn't seem to know what the problem is but I think something is very wrong here."

Wren the Curious says, "I can't wait to get back to work... trying to stablize this portal one adjustment at a time is monotonous at best."

You try to enter the portal but there is no effect.

The portal seems unstable.
