Offer Text[edit | edit source]

By slaying Ezrek Khan, you broke the enchantment used to enslave the Guardian of Mana. That means you can defeat her without destroying her.

The Ezrohir have moved the Guardian to the fortress of Riftkeep in the Salt Barrens, where they are marshaling their forces for the assault on Zeryphesh.

Go. Fight past the Ezrohir and free the Guardian!

Follow Up Text[edit | edit source]

When the Zeraphi and Ezrohir "parted ways", they designated the nearby fortress of Riftkeep as a neutral ground, where they could meet and talk over their differences. But it has remained unused for centuries ... until a few weeks ago, when the Ezrohir army seized the fortress. They have occupied it ever since, and that is surely where they are holding the Guardian of Mana while they marshal their forces.

The Ezrohir will be expecting the Zeraphi to attack them at Riftkeep, to attempt to rescue the Guardian. But they know it will take time for the Zeraphi to arrive. You can get there much more quickly, and fight your way inside before they are prepared to repel you.

Journal Entry[edit | edit source]

Accepting the Quest[edit | edit source]

Travel through the Witherways, in the Salt Barrens, to the Ezrohir stronghold of Riftkeep, and free the Guardian of Mana from Ezrohir control.

The story so far...

The time has come to enter Riftkeep and try to rescue the Guardian of Mana. The djinni, Fazeer Shah, claims that he has broken the Ezrohir's control over the Guardian ... but there still remains the matter of actually freeing her. Resistance inside Riftkeep will be formidable; the Ezrohir army is already prepared for war, and they are no doubt expecting a rescue attempt. You will have to act fast, and strike without mercy.

Defeating the Siege Guardian[edit | edit source]

Speak to the newly freed Guardian of Mana.

Completion Text[edit | edit source]

Stop. Enough. You have freed me from my enslavement and I am myself once more!

We must leave this place. I will open a portal for you, to Zeryphesh.
