Goal for the Stuff of Shadows – Kalista’s Version

The Stuff of Shadows Goal Solution:

Note: Requires Exotic weapon skill.

* Goal Added : The Stuff of Shadow

Find the Magister of Argento Bank
Say ‘shadows’
Give 5000 coins to the magister
Head to ‘The Arcane Oculist’s Workshop’ (40407) where you’ll find Evelina
After listening to her spiele, say ‘yes’ to trigger the goal/tasks
* Task Added : Learn the secret to forging from shadows.

Head to ‘The Chamber of Shadow Bringers’ (40412)
Kill Laverna and loot her shadow knife
Head to ‘The Chambers of the Shadow Catchers’ and kill Marlena, looting her shadow net
Head back to the Chambers of the Shadow Seekers
Kill Umbraquaeris Oculists until you loot a Specter Scope
Wear the net, Specter Scope, and shadow knife (offhand is OK)
Kill mobs in the shadow chambers. Some will drop a shadow of death on the floor, instead of giving you xp. It is a random chance and a low drop rate. Be sure to pick the shadows up from the floor.
Collect 5 Shadows of Death
Go to ‘The Shadow Forge’ (40417) and make sure the 5 Shadows of Death are in your inventory
Say ‘forge sleeves’ to receive sleeves of shadow, and complete the task
* Task Added : Reach the inner circles and assist them in their purpose.

Head west and ‘squeeze’ then ‘climb ladder’.
Find Minerva and give her the shadow sleeves to be transported to ‘The Vestibule of Umbrambuler’
Kill the guardian and loot his key (ward of noble intentions). The guardian is one of the umbraquaeris, so remove one of the 3 bits of equipment before you kill it. If it drops a shadow of death then you don’t get the key!
Open south and go south to ‘The Domicile of Umbrambuler’
Say ‘explain’ to complete the task
* Task Added : Cast a great shadow upon the world.

Say ‘i will assist you’ and Umbrambuler will open a gateway for you
Enter the gateway and kill the grey orb monster for an orb – you’ll be transported back when done
Type ‘chalk circle’ to return to the start of the area
Make your way back to the Chambers of the Shadow Seekers
Collect a further 35 shadows of death (Yes, 35, trust me, saves hassle later)
Head up to Valeria in ‘The Shadow Forge’ (40417) and say ‘forge sash’ – she’ll take 5 shadows of death as payment
Head up to Astraea in ‘The Orrery Room’
Give her the sash and she’ll transport you to another guardian
Kill the guardian for the key, open east, and head east
Say ‘assist’ and enter the gateway that appears
Kill the White Orb Monster and loot the white orb
Type ‘chalk circle’ to return to the start of the area
Return to Valeria in ‘The Shadow Forge’ and say ‘forge slippers’ – she’ll take 5 shadows of death as payment
Head up to Caelia in ‘The First Astrologist’s Study’
Give her the slippers and she’ll transport you to another guardian
Kill the guardian for the key, open west, and head west
Say ‘assist’ and enter the gateway that appears
Kill the Black Orb Monster and loot the black orb
Type ‘chalk circle’ to return to the start of the area
Return to Valeria in ‘The Shadow Forge’ and say ‘forge orb’ – she’ll take the remaining 25 shadows of death as payment
Head up to Astraea in ‘The Orrery Room’ and say ‘orbs’
She’ll say some blurb and complete the goal.
