Intermediate Dialogue 2
- Rastigan the Eternal: "Now shall I open the gate."
- Rastigan the Eternal: "Hearken to me, O Tower of Courage. I have come to challenge the false master of this place."
- Rastigan the Eternal: "Shelter not the coward from my righteous wrath."
- Rastigan the Eternal: "In Balthazar's name, I command you: Open the gate!"
- "You have shattered the forces of Menzies like a true champion of Balthazar. This realm is now open to you. Seek out what glory you may find, fighting alongside the Eternal Army of the God of War."
Be careful when clearing the area in which you start in the Fissure: if you kill one of the rangers groups on the eastern or southern side of the tower, you will trigger the quest. If you do so, Rastigan will start to move and try to get close to the Tower of Courage, no matter how many shadow creatures are in between, possibly getting himself killed and thus getting you kicked out of the Fissure.
Note: If this is your first time in the Fissure, observe the patrols of the Shadow Army and never assume that an empty area will remain empty for long.
The quest itself is not too hard. There are 4 groups, of two Shadow Rangers and one Abyssal each, around the Tower of Courage (the large building to the east, up the hill from your starting position). Take them out and Rastigan will open the gate to the Tower. Once the gate is open, the Shadow Lord will appear, accompanied by two more Abyssals. The Shadow Lord himself doesn't pose too much of a threat either, so just go ahead and take them out. There are many more groups of shadow creatures around the area, though. Some of them are patrolling at rather high speed, so watch your back!
Once you have cleared out the tower, there will be a chest in the middle, open the chest for a reward.
- Rastigan the Eternal must survive, as if he dies your party will be immediately forced to leave the Fissure.
