Go into the Feywild Landscape and find the Prince of Frost. He will get you into Duskfall Overlook, where you can meet with Hyrsam.

What to Expect

  • 2 random Watchwords needed to progress using the: /say channel function (you don't need to write these down, after you discover them in the quest they'll be shown on the notes on the pedestals to the left and right of the final door leading to the end fight)
  • Magical fiddles; used to break walls and floors to progress and gargoyles for optional

Tips and Misc

Misc tips
  • The forest animals count towards kills.
  • In several rooms, hanging vines can be used as "ladders".
  • That's acid on the floor in the mushroom hallway.
  • Pixie casters like Electric Loop and Melf's Acid Arrow.
Entry room ("Room of Objects")
  • Listen to the Satyr.
  • Talk to Owl.
  • You need two watchwords to get past the door on the right.
Watchword in Hall of Objects
  • The watchword on the left is easy to pick up. Walk down the hallway to a table.
  • Pick up one item from the dinner table. Talk to the owl for clues.
    • The objects on the table are semi-random, and so vary:
      • Good objects are "simple/of the senses": Bottle of Wine, Fiddle, Mirror, Ripe Apple, Wooden Torch
      • Bad objects are "civilized": Book, Cage, Crystal Goblet, Eladrin Sheet Music, Gourmet Cake, Formal Dinner, Lantern, Vial of Perfume
  • Good choice spawns guardians. Kill them and return to the center.
    • Optional: Go north to the prison and talk to the prisoners. (see next)
  • Bad choice sends you to prison. A secret door behind you is your escape hatch. Work your way back to the dinner table and try again (pick a "good" object this time!).
    • Optional: A Gold Key on a mushroom ledge (in a storeroom with a fungus and a large root) allows access to a locked door which contains one of Hyrsam's Fiddles Fables of the Feywild, needed to complete that optional.
Watchword in Crumbled Amphitheater
  • Music Stands are a good place to play some music.
  • Watch for rough/unfinished/semi-broken sections of wall, another good place to play music.
  • There are more than enough Gargoyle statues to meet the optional. Use the Feyish Fiddle to destroy them.
  • The fiddle can also smash breakables; however, they won't be counted towards the bonus.
  • Be careful not to kill the named Gargoyle Tourmaline too quickly, or you will not satisfy the quest objective, and the quest will not be completable. Beat on him until he needs to stop and regenerate, then quickly get close and use fiddle music to finish him off before he starts fighting again.
  • Unlike generic gargoyles, it appears that he can use his regeneration indefinitely.
Pull the lever in this room, activating the Red Signal Crystal. This opens the door in the west-central room, leading to the 2nd watchword.
There is a breakable section of the floor here; be careful where you are standing when using a fiddle.
This floor drops down to a shrine (with a fight just beyond that door). A vine can be used as a "ladder" to climb back up.
  • Go to the west-central room, and use a fiddle to break the lone, larger gargoyle statue. Read the Note to get the watchword for this side.
  • Continue west and step into the mushroom circle, which then teleports you to a matching circle in the northeast room. From there, go up the stairs to the (now active) exit door. Drop down to the entry hall.
Curious Door optional
  • The door appears very briefly in two locations - once in the starting room on the wall of the tree, and once under an arch in the vine-filled room in the Amphitheater.
  • Warning: It is possible to enter the Curious Door when it first appears at the beginning, but returning through it may sometimes put you at the second location (Amphitheater). If you don't have the Feyish Fiddle with you, you cannot progress far from there without leaving the quest and re-entering (teleporting is disabled at this point, as the entire quest is under a Dimensional Anchor!)
  • Scath the Vorpal is beyond the Curious Door. There is no combat in this section, so any one party member can jump through to complete it.
  • The Door only appears for a split second when you approach it; if you miss it, it appears to return after a bit but cannot be interacted with.
Finale in Rooftop Arena
  • Back in the entry chamber, stand on the steps between the pedestals, and use /say word1 word2 to open the door.
  • Read the pedestals if you need a reminder for the words.
Watch Words
  • Stand directly between the two podiums (in the initial area where you first talk to the owl) to /say the watch words, and use /say <word1 word2> to open the door.
    • Word1:
      • Free
      • Honest
      • Unbridled
      • Wild
      • Passionate
    • Word2:
      • Bounty
      • Melody
      • Nature
      • Spirit
      • Vision
  • Proceed to the end fight.
  • Kill two bosses and waves of trash.
  • Talk to Satyr to conclude the adventure.
  • There is some lengthy dialogue after the quest ends, with "the mysterious stranger", related to the Codex storyline.
Trivia
In the central/south section, in the hall past the fiddles, there is a small niche concealed by a wall that can be broken with fiddle music. A "rubble" collectable can be detected through the wall. Once it's open, the body of "Fortunato" can be seen, with (presumably) a bottle of sherry nearby. This is a reference to the short story by Edgar Allen Poe, The Cask of Amontillado. The body cannot be selected, and has no other connection to the quest or optionals.
