Tips and Misc
You will enter this quest and run through the jungle. Have everyone run all the way, just follow the path, to the altar and fight all the skeletons and casters in one spot. The enemy casters and skeletons will be a little slow so be patient and they will all eventually show up.
The cultists use the poison spell very frequently; so have restoration and poison potions or spells.
Attacking the drow scorpion bosses will spawn more cultists. The bosses can dispel and heal.
There is one shrine just next to the altar, and one chest to be looted.
To finish the quest, click the altar. It will show a warning that you're about to leave the quest and face a reentry penalty, but you can ignore it and click yes. This will finish the quest. You can then proceed to Xorian Cipher or cancel and click Finish to return to house J.
Unlike most quests, you do not need to "return" this quest to anyone to conclude it and there is no NPC reward.
