It is best known for housing a series of quests and mini story arcs that make up a single story arc most commonly referred to as "The Catacombs", from the name of the zone that contains all of the quests. The quests range in level from 3 to 4 so this is often one of the first story arcs done when entering the Marketplace. The rewards obtained for completing the story arc aren't bad, considering the level at which they can be obtained.

Keep in mind that, while working through this story arc, you'll complete a couple of mini story arcs along the way ("To Find a Witness" and "Duality"). When you complete these mini story arcs, you'll be given a reward from Archbishop Dryden and receive the next quest in the story arc. Many a team has been slowed down due to having to repeat portions of the story arc because someone didn't advance the story properly.

Below are more details about the quests that make up the story arc.
