Clear out the remaining Afflicted in Shadow's Passage.

Quest information[edit]


  • Defeat the Afflicted in Shadow's Passage.
  • See Initiate Zei Ri for your reward.


Environmental changes[edit]

  • Completing this quest changes the foes that appear in Shadow's Passage, specifically, Afflicted will no longer spawn.


Start from Dragon's Throat and follow the quest markers and eliminate three groups of Afflicted. Just before the third, a small group of Jade Brotherhood will pop up; they are hostile to the Afflicted, so if you maneuver carefully, they can do some of your work for you.



Humans (Ministry of Purity)




Initial dialogue[edit]

Initiate Zei Ri
"It is good to see you again. I have received word of further sightings of the Afflicted, this time in Shadow's Passage. We know that, at long last, we are gaining some ground in this fight. The Afflicted have not been seen in Bukdek Byway since their last defeat. Perhaps we are finally nearing the end of their numbers. With every battle we win, we assure the safety of one more section of the city.
"Knowing that, will you lend me your strength once more?"
Yes Accept: "Of course. For the safety of Kaineng!"
No Decline: "I think I've done enough already."
Ask Ask: "Please meet me in Shadow's Passage when you're ready to go."

Intermediate Dialogue[edit]

At first mob:

Initiate Zei Ri: "It's hard to believe that the Ministry of Purity has been fighting the Afflicted for nearly two years now. It's amazing how time envelops you when you are devoted to your goals."

After final mob:

Initiate Zei Ri: "And another battle is won. I wish you could have seen the battles that came before. Watching people find their own strength and fight for a cause is a powerful thing."
Initiate Zei Ri: "With our own hands, we are building a better world for ourselves and those who will live after we are gone. It makes me proud to say that I am part of it all."

Reward Dialogue[edit]

Initiate Zei Ri
"Another section of the city is clear, and I have no doubt that this time it's for good. Can you feel it, friend? The stirrings in the air that speak of great works and great things to come? These are exciting times that we are living in.
"Ah, and before I forget, this is for you."
