Confronting the Toxic Alliance

Dear <Character name>,

We've returned to our camp at Thunder Ridge after unveiling the towering monstrosity at the heart of Viathan Lake. This malignant and unapproachable tower is polluting the region with hallucinatory poisons, and Marjory is hard at work to find a counteragent. If you are able to collect any samples of the toxic spores, please bring them to Marjory.

I suspect you're already a part of this, as you aren't the type to stand idly by while others suffer. Provided you aren't too busy foiling enemy raids on resources or pruning the offshoots of their tower that are sprouting up across Tyria, Priory Arcanist Dolja here in our camp could use your help investigating a possible krait motive for allying with the Nightmare Court.

Thank you for your continued assistance, my friend.

—Lady Kasmeer Meade

Speaking with Marjory to donate Pristine Toxic Spore Samples
Glad you're here. I need help gathering more spore samples so I can find an antitoxin to counteract this tower's poison.

Cut down the toxic offshoots sprouting up around Kessex Hills and the surrounding areas before they poison everyone. And speak to Arcanist Dolja. I hear she's looking into the krait angle in all this.

My story[edit]

Kessex Hills loading screen.png

After revealing the malignant Tower of Nightmares in the heart of Kessex Hills, Kasmeer and Marjory returned to camp at Thunder Ridge. Marjory tasked me with collecting toxic spores from across the region, and with those spores in hand, she was able to successfully create an antitoxin to counter the plume of toxic discharge inside of the tower. Priory researchers are going to attempt to quell the tower by injecting the antitoxin into the chamber at the tower's core, but we've yet to see or hear if that effort will be at all successful.
