Enter the instance in Lamia Mire (north of the Irondock Shipyard Waypoint). Instruct your sparring partner to hide while you lure out the Flame Legion. Interact with the marker on the ground to create a Flame Legion symbol - soon after Aethin Skulltwister appears in the burning fires, speak with him. After the cinematic Aethin summons more Flame Legion foes. Defeat them all to finish the mission.









Talking to your warband survivor at the beginning:

<Sparring partner>: What are your orders, boss?
Talk quest option tango.png Hide yourselves. I'll draw the enemy out. When I strike, you back me up.
Talk end option tango.png Get out of sight, and we'll get started.
Talk end option tango.png Let me survey the area first.

Speaking to your sparring partner before they hide:

<Sparring partner>: I'm ready and waiting, boss. What are we doing here?
Talk end option tango.png Reconnaissance. Stick close and I'll let you know when it's time to fight.

When talking to Aethin Skulltwister:

Aethin Skulltwister: We've been expecting you, cub. And watching you. Now that you're closer, I sense the family resemblance.
Aethin Skulltwister: Are you a traitor - or a double-traitor like your father? Convince me, cub. Renounce your former legion and swear allegiance to Flame.
<Character name>: Slow down. Forktail said I'd retain my rank. I join as legionnaire or I don't join at all.
Aethin Skulltwister: Not possible. Legionnaire Flarekin leads us, and he wants to know what you know about the Citadel's highest ranking officers.
Aethin Skulltwister: His assassination ritual is ready to burn them alive in front of their own troops. You can help us, or you can burn too. What's it going to be?
<Character name>: If that's all you have for me, it's going to be me killing you. Right now.

When the Flame Legion agent turns hostile:

Aethin Skulltwister: Flame will consume you!

Upon dying:

Aethin Skulltwister: I die for Gaheron!

Talking to your warband survivor afterwards:

<Sparring partner>: Killing the top brass? The Flame Legion likes to think big.
Talk end option tango.png Yeah. We'd better see if Forktail can tell us any more.

My story[edit]

I lured the Flame Legion out and discovered their plan: shaman Mergath Flarekin is targeting the Black Citadel's tribunes. I need to talk to my father again for more info on Mergath.
