Know O pilgrim, the virtues of the stars, for all great deeds cry for blessing.—The Gray Menhir
I found a book describing an ancient Nedic hero named Ranev the Coal-Eyed Wanderer and her legendary pilgrimage along "The Gray Passage." According to the text, those who complete the pilgrimage in the allotted time gain the favor of the Stars.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Read the book to start the quest.
  2. Visit the Gray Menhir to start the pilgrimage - the timer will start at that point.
  3. Visit six prayer stones inside the delves.
  4. Return to the Gray Menhir.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Starting the Pilgrimage[edit]

On the balcony of the Dragonstar inn Caravan Company Depot there is a book called "The Gray Passage". Read it to gain information about an ancient Nedic hero who completed a pilgrimage called "Gray Passage" and gained the favor of the Stars. You can undertake the same pilgrimage by visiting the Gray Menhir to start it. Optionally, you can first read the old book on the table to gain additional information.

The Gray Menhir is a stone located in the far western side of Upper Craglorn, between Fearfangs Cavern and Sunken Lair. After you have approached it and read the stone tablet, a timer of two hours will start. You will fail the quest if you do not meet the set time.

The Six Prayer Stones[edit]

There are six prayer stones you need to visit, all of them in conventional soloable Delves (not Group Delves). The following is just a possible order, possibly one that saves you some time. It starts in Fearfangs Cavern which is very close to the Gray Menhir. From there you will teleport to the eastern Upper Craglorn and visit the three stones there - these are the ones that can take most time. Then you can teleport to the middle of Craglorn and visit the two remaining prayer stones.

  • The Pledge of Piety inside The Howling Sepulchers - head directly southwest towards the lower parts of the valley. Kill the group of skeletons in front of you and head west up the little ramp, climbing over the waterfall. There is a wispmother you need to fight before heading to the prayer stone. This is by far the quickest one because you do not need to kill so many mobs to get it.

Teleport to Dragonstar Wayshrine and head back to the Gray Menhir.


  • Depending on how much clearing you want to do inside the delves, you should be able to complete the quest in well under an hour.
  • Two other daily quests can be easily completed concurrently: Iron and Scales and Taken Alive. Both of these quests can be easily obtained after traveling to the Valley of Scars Wayshrine to read the three prayer stones in the easternmost delves, and are easy to complete solo.
  • A Thieves Trove can spawn behind the Gray Menhir.
  • This quest can be done in conjuction with the Exalted Viper quests with Regent Cassipia and Titus Valerius.


  • This quest may also create countdown timers for other unfinished quests in your Quest Journal
    • Restarting the game will remove the timers with no effect on their related quests.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
