DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

As taken from the experience of a 50 Light-spec'd Eldritch.)

[Step #1] Seek out Lobais in Alainn Cuir and speak to him about using the amulet to enter Bres' sealed portion of Darkness Falls.

[Step #2] Go to the entrance of Darkness falls in Connacht and /use the Wayfinder Amulet to enter the demon's lair. Once inside, the amulet will guide you.

The Wayfinder Amulet glows brightly. You feel it guiding you north to the Well of Darkness and south to the Pit of Hate.

You target [Oonalo]
You examine Oonalo. He is friendly.
Oonalo says, "At last! I knew that [sooner or later], they'd send someone to rescue that fool Keeper. At ease, mortal surface dwellers, I'm not here to harm you, I'm here to help you. I'll explain quickly, as we haven't much time. Bres has eyes and ears everywhere, and the longer we tarry here, the more we risk one of his agents discovering your presence, and alerting their master."

Oonalo says, "I will follow you now, (your name). Lead on!"

[Step #4] Allow the Wayfinder amulet to guild you, so that you might rescue Keeper Garran. It will react to the presence of Eternal Darkness, Eternal Hate and Bres.

Oonalo needs to follow you. He will 'grow' bigger after you kill the first (Hate/Darkness and then bigger still after you kill the other (Hate/Darkness)

[Step #5] Defeat Eternal Hate (Eternal Darkness). The Wayfinder Amulet will guild you to his lair.
    I did steps 4 & 5 solo, but I died SEVERAL Times. The following is a few tips/advice for you to remember.

  • I recommend going to kill Hate first. I killed Darkness first, however, later realized that he's location is close to the entrance you use to access Bres. Hate is to the Right from where you enter.

  • Watch out for the Rat Pack. If you are solo & lvl 50, they con green but attack REAL freaking fast, and there's about 7 of them (or more, never counted). They come up to the entrance area and go back toward Darkness (Left side).

  • This is an instance so the more people you bring, the higher the con.

  • After you kill Hate & Darkness, wait for agro that WILL be INC' About 3 or 4 Yellows will come for you after each one.

  • Clear the Rooms before pulling the named. I didn't try it the other way, however, if you have a group (2 or more), pulling the guardians of Hate or the Guardians of Darkness will agro the named mobs.

  • Hate and Darkness con OJ to a single 50.

  • Hate and Darkness hit REALLY HARD! But they seem very weak to Light Damage from an eldy. Not sure if it's only Eldy's or all magic. I do know I saw Hate take down a Champion in 3-4 hits.
[Step #6] Defeat Bres to free Keeper Garran.

To reach Bres you need to take the west passage from Darkness. Take the first North passage you come to. Follow that one to the end and then take the west passage again. There's a mockery entrance closer to the instance-entrance, but you cannot reach Bres via that route.

-Bres con'd Purple to me & my ranger buddy, but we were still able to take him dueling. His guardians come with him, but they were oj'd and I mezzed them first.

[Step #7] You've defeated Bres and his minions. Speak to Keeper Garran or return to Seneschal and make your report.

Warning, Oonalo, who should have helped you get to Bres, now turns into Eternal Greed, and he will be standing next to Keeper Garran. You'll have to kill him. Don't worry though, he only con'd yellow to 2 lvl 50's

Keeper Garran says, "We must leave immediately! I shall return to my tower with the Stone of Destiny and set things in order there. Make your way to the court and let the Seneschal know of my return and that the Lia Fail is safe once more.

[Step #8] /Use the Wayfinder Amulet to leave Bres' lair.
Friends won't port with you btw!

When you return to Seneschal, you notice oddities in his behavior. If you persist he'll turn into a demon and attack you.

[Step #9] Speak with Kin Lug in his throne room.

Before you take your leave of this place, however, I have something for you. In appreciation of your efforts thus far, as well as in preparation for the task yet before you, I've instructed my Weaponmaster to locate and make available to you a suitable weapon from our armory that just may turn the tide in your upcoming battle against this new peril. Be sure to seek him out in yon antechamber prior to seeking out Keeper Garran.

Did this solo with my Eld (mana spec). I had dex/qui and int potions to use, and a nearly completed toa template (artifacts were level 8).

hint: before you go to Hate/Darkness, clear the adjacenting 2-3 rooms of all mobs. After the kill, *run* back and kill the (grey) messenger - then there will be no spawn of mobs after the kill.
If that is'nt possible, sit in a quiet corner and wait for them to run past you.

Boss guards...

TIP: About the Boss guards.

If you pull then from range FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, you can kill them one at a time... then you can fight the bosses Solo (I mean, they won't have buddies).

Worked for me on Hate, Darkness and Bres.

Ranger grouped with a Druid.
trouble getting reward?

go back to where sen. was, then go back to the king, i had to do that twice,
he gave me new quest Co5, and then told me to see the weapon master,
theres 4 of them you have to see which one is for your path....
then i got to choose between blade or blunt
im a druid thats buff/heal, n i chose blunt,
got a huge hammer that hits well, dont have stats handy,
and you get a weapon for your class!

good luck!
No weapon for me
