Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Talk to Englor at the entrance to Fort Grimwatch. According to him, the Mane loosed Dro-m'Athra spirits on the fort. The Lunar Champions, Shazah and Khali, are leading the fight against the spirits. Englor offers to take you to Shazah. He runs into the first building on the right, then up the ramp into the Grimwatch Tree. He explains the situation further as you follow him. Speak with Shazah.

The First Mane appears

Shazah says she and her sister arrived in Grimwatch a few days ago to deal with a siege and soldiers. However, as they started to push the soldiers back, the Mane released dark spirits, the Dro-m'Athra. She will help you destroy the spirit wells in the city, then you can go look for her sister, Khali.

There are three points of corruption to seal: one to the north, one in the south and one to the west. Approach the blue circles on the ground. Shazah will enter each one and glow as she purges the dro-m'Athra's evil, You must defend her from the spirits, which will come in three waves at each location.

After you seal the corruption, go to the Central Tree. Shazah seals the darkness in the tree, and Rid-Thar-ri'Datta, the first Mane, appears. He says the source of the darkness is inside the temple, tells you to pass through the fire, and gives you his blessing. Talk to Shazah. She says the Mane's blessing will help you enter the temple to find Khali, as a barrier of dark fire currently blocks the way.

The temple entrance is east of the central tree. Pass through the blue flames, and you will find a small group of Dominion soldiers in front of the temple entrance. Khali herself is standing upstairs near the temple door which appears to be blocked by dark fire. Talk to Khali who thanks you for helping Shazah, then gives you a small reward.
