The Darkness of Magnier, also known as Town of Beasts, is a daily quest available in the Western Steppes. It is available to players that are level 100 and Shifting Sky I to Royal Sky X, meaning that the player must also have reawakened at least twice. In order to unlock this daily quest, the player must first complete the "Secret of the Bell" quest in the A Dark Dawn quest chain, which is a part of the Neverfall Quest Chain.

Description[edit | edit source]

The vampires of Magnier are under attack by the creatures who come out at night. Veteran Roberts wants you to slay them and restore peace to the town.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

Take the quest from Veteran Roberts in Magnier. You will receive 1 of 4 possible tasks, 3 of which can only be done at certain times of the day.

How to Check the Day/Night Cycle[edit | edit source]

For at least 3 of the possible tasks that can be received, the monsters required are only available at certain times of the day.

The game world itself goes through its own day/night cycles that are shorter than real-world time. To the top-right of the client where the navigation map is, next to the coordinates will be an icon that may show as a sun rising, a sun setting, a full sun, or a moon. This icon can be hovered over to display the game world's time. Daytime in-game is 6am to 6pm in game-world time, while nighttime is 6pm to 6am in game-world time. 10 minutes of real-world time equals 1 hour of game-world time, therefore it is always daytime for 2 real-world hours, and nighttime for 2 real-world hours.

The in game time will always match up with the server's time.

Lurking Werewolves[edit | edit source]

Use the Ghostlight Braziers to reveal and kill 10 Lurking Werewolves.

This quest can only be done during the daytime.

  1. You will receive 10 Ghostlight Braziers from Veteran Roberts.
  2. Kill 10 Lurking Werewolves within Magnier. The werewolves are hiding in stealth, so you must use the Ghostlight Braziers in order to see them.
  3. Once you have killed the werewolves, you will receive your reward. Talk to Veteran Roberts to complete the quest.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If you are an assassin, as long as you have learned Sharp Observer level 3 or higher, you will be able to see the werewolves without needing to use Ghostlight Braziers.
  • If you run out of Ghostlight Braziers you can use Revelation Potions or Espionage Potions to see the werewolves.
  • The Ghostlight Braziers do not disappear after the quest is completed, so you can save them up for next time.

Town in Crisis[edit | edit source]

The vampires have conflict with other creatures who come out in the evening too. The peace of the town has been broken. You can restore the peace. Kill Rat Lady, Owl, Leather Wing, Zombie and Shambler which often attack the town at night.

This quest can only be done during night time.

  1. Kill a total of 25 of any of these monsters, found on the outskirts of Magnier. It can be the same monster or a combination of multiple. Each type will occasionally attack their target with magic damage and debuff them.
    • Vile Scarab: Stuns their target. Located at (491, 585) and (492, 570).
    • Owl: Debuffs their target with a fire damage-over-time (DoT) skill. Located at (460, 590) and (467, 598).
    • Leather Wing: Slows their target. Located at (480, 599) and (486, 597).
    • Zombie: Lowers their target's magic defense. Located at (469, 558) and (473, 556).
    • Shambler: Lowers their target's physical defense. Located at (485, 562) and (489, 563).
  2. Once you have killed a total of 25 monsters, you will receive your reward. Talk to Veteran Roberts to complete the quest.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All of the monsters can hit hard with their unique debuff skill, so it is not recommended to AoE them if you are not particularly tanky.
  • There will be Common Vampires assisting to attack the monsters. Sometimes you will not get kill credit for this reason, especially if the monster's HP is low.

Run or Die[edit | edit source]

Before night falls, find the proper Stone Statue to activate a protective shield over Magnier.

This quest can be done at any time of the day and must be completed within 30 minutes, or it will fail. If the player finishes the quest in roughly 2 minutes they will receive a higher reward.

    1. On the fence where Veteran Roberts is looking (476, 589).
    2. On top of the large building just behind Mayor Barruk (484, 581).
    3. On a fence south of the large building (482, 568).
    4. On top of an arch behind the building where Merchant Flemming is (471, 576).
  2. After talking to the fourth statue, you will receive your reward. Talk to Veteran Roberts to complete the quest.

  1. You will receive a Soulshock Mirror from Veteran Roberts.

  3. Once you have the Pretender's Skins, you will receive your reward. Talk to Veteran Roberts to complete the quest.

Notes[edit | edit source]
