Relive Keiran and Miku tracking down and defeating Danthor.

Quest information[edit]


  • Locate Danthor the Adamant.
  • Defeat Danthor the Adamant.



Follow the path along Majesty's Rest towards the Sage Lands. There are fewer foes if you go around the north of The Mausoleum and Rotscale.

As in other Hearts of the North mini-missions:

  • Use Keiran's Sniper Shot against targets called out by Miku, which causes over 900 points of damage if it hits (unless Miku's Promise of Death is removed).
  • If Miku dies, she will self-resurrect once no enemies are in earshot.





Humans (Peacekeeper)

Humans (White Mantle)

Zombies (Undead)

At the beginning
Keiran Thackeray: "We've made up a lot of ground. At this rate, we'll catch up to Danthor soon."
Miku: "Then let's keep at it. The only forgiveness he will find is at the end of my blade. "
Keiran Thackeray: "You know, you remind me of someone."
Miku: "Really? I'm just me. Are you sure that it's not just that someone else is on your mind?"
Keiran Thackeray: "..."
Southeast of Rotscale
Keiran Thackeray: "At this rate, the White Mantle won't stand a chance."
Miku: "We do go very well together."
Keiran Thackeray: "Wait. I was talking about fighting. What about you?"
Miku: "I wonder..."
At Danthor's Location
Miku: "There you are, Danthor! Accept your fate and die in peace, or die struggling in Futility!"
Danthor the Adamant: "Such tenacity. You still pursue me? It makes no difference, you know."
Danthor the Adamant: "His plans are already coming to fruition. What happens here will change nothing."
Miku: "Anything can change; all that's required is the will to do so. Let me show you mine!"
After Danthor dies
Miku: "At last...now the fallen can rest easier."
Keiran Thackeray: "It looks like some of the White Mantles escaped further into the Maguuma Jungle. What will you do now?"
Miku: "I need to continue. This time, for myself. The question is, Keiran, what will you do?"
Keiran Thackeray: "It's dangerous to keep on alone. I will accompany you."
Miku: "That's kind of you. I wonder, though. Maybe your kindness reveals that you rely on others too much."
Keiran Thackeray: "What do you mean?"
Miku: "Oh, I don't know. Is protecting me an excuse to keep on like this?"
Keiran Thackeray: "Let's keep on going; we don't want to lose them."
Gwen in the Hall of Monuments
Gwen: "So Keiran has been helping this girl deal with the White Mantle...but why?"
Gwen: "He's so...irritating! He wants to help everyone, but he just doesn't understand, does he?"
Gwen: "He can't be everywhere. By helping her, he's hurting me."
Gwen: "But look at him right now. He looks kind of happy, doesn't he? Did we ever look like that?"
Gwen: "How could we have? I was always so busy pushing him away..."


  • This quest is automatically obtained upon entering Majesty's Rest (via the Scrying Pool), and will be removed should one leave.
  • The foes that spawn near Danthor (friendly until approached) can be individually pulled.
    • Danthor can be separated from his group and killed quickly, ending the mission. Attack him, step back and wait for Miku to call him as a target, then use Keiran's Sniper Shot to finish the job.
    • Even if you die, this quest can still be completed if Danthor dies (either via Miku or degen).
  • If your inventory is full after Danthor is defeated, any reward items will be dropped on the ground; they will be in the Unclaimed Items box the next time you enter an outpost, if you do not get a chance to pick them up sooner.
  • While you must equip Keiran's Bow to access this mission, you can switch it out for another weapon, including a long or flatbow for pulling and especially one that has weapon upgrades appropriate to Keiran's skills. However, you cannot increase his maximum health, energy, or total attributes using weapon or armor upgrades.
  • Rotscale can be killed during this mission, making this an easy way to get Rotwing Recurve Bow. However, his death during this mission will not count for his Zaishen Bounty.
