Saga of the Aelfwar

The Saga of the Aelfwar (also known as the life sage) is the guardian epic questline for level 10-50.

It is mostly open world content, towards the end you will need to run a few dungeons/PVP and then the last quest is inside the GSB raid/chronicle.
The open world content is often very difficult and not solo-able (with of character of the correct level).
There are various rewards for the different stages of the questline, but the best reward is a very nice weapon from the last quest.

Before you are able to start the life saga quest you will need to complete *most* of the storyline in Silverwood.
On my alt I completed 85/100 quests before I was able to pick up the first saga quest, I didnt do many quests in the northern/middle of the zone, I complete the quests along the west side and the south. Its likely you will have completed the Silverwood quests a long time ago anyways, but if you havn’t, just follow the storyline quests and keep checking the questgiver every so often to see if you can pick up.

The life saga questline is not like a normal questline with a straight and simple flow of quests – You will often have more than one quest in your log for the saga, some of the quests will be meta quests for completing other quests, it is very easy to lose track of where you are.. as a hint, NEVER ABANDON A QUEST! Clear out your questlog of other quests, try to have at least 5 spaces for picking up new quests for the saga.
The Saga of the Aelfwar quests will have their own small section in your questlog.

QUEST 3: THE CARE AND IMPRISONMENT OF CHANGELINGS
LEVEL: 20
PICK UP: the quest is picked up from cardinal fiach at /setwaypoint 7465 3094 – middle floor of the sanctum tower
TO COMPLETE: 
defeat cinderon
defeat gnarladon
collect a messenger of the vigil tear

you will find the messenger of the vigil at /setwaypoint 6071 3961 – this is in the divine landing in silverwood, where you first ported into telara after doing the tutorial zone
talk to the messenger of the vigil to receive the tear
the tear will go straight into your quest items bag in your quest log

cinderon and gnarladon are both silverwood zone event bosses.
cinderon is the last boss of the ‘march of the gedlo’ fire zone event
gnarladon is the last boss of the ‘arboreal assault’ life zone event

due to these zone events being rare, special rift lures were added to the game with these bosses inside them
the cinderon lure can be bought from ‘quartermaster unkrat’ <order of the flame> at /setwaypoint 7460 3012 – planar room in the sanctum tower

the gnarladon lure can be bought from ‘quartermaster queb’ <order of life serene> at /setwaypoint 7459 3017 – planar room in the sanctum tower

both of these lures can be popped using a normal rift tear in silverwood, they will spawn a rift that will release the boss for you to kill – be aware that you may need a group of people to kill it unless you are well above level 20

once you have killed both bosses and collected the tear, your quest objective will change to ‘speak with abbott germet in sanctum’
go back to sanctum to /setwaypoint 7463 3013 and hand in the quest to abbott germet – planar room in the sanctum tower

QUEST 4: THE CHANGELING REVEALED
LEVEL: 20

go to the area called the ‘palisade’ in the north of silverwood (marked on the map with 4 yellow quest circles) /setwaypoint 6196 2613
when you are in the correct area, target one of the aelfwar and use the quest item

you will now get two quest reactives pop up
the first is called ash of binding
the second is cold iron touched
if these reactives do not pop up for you, then open up your quest log and look in the bag space at the bottom for the two items, drag them into your cast bar to use them

the trick with this quest is to use the cold iron on the aelfwar until you find one that transforms into ‘cealhaidh the corrupter’ – (this is pure RNG, could be the first one you try or the 50th!)
you will then need to get cealhaidh to around 5% health and use the ash of binding on them (the ash is a ground aoe ability, just place it on the ground beneath their feet), this will place a debuff on them for 15 seconds (ish), you need to kill them before that debuff wears off

when you have looted cealhaidh’s spirit go back to snctu, and hand the quest in to abbott germet at /setwaypoint 7463 3013 – planar room in the sanctum tower

after you have killed each of the first 3 bosses a *large* group of hostile mobs will appear for you to kill, along with their commander, although there are a lot of mobs they dont hit very hard so a normal dungeon group will be able to complete the quest with no issues, a level 70 player can of course solo it ūüôā

LEVEL: 50
PICK UP: the quest is picked up from shyla starhearth at /setwaypoint 7515 3052 Рbottom floor of the sanctum tower
TO COMPLETE: seal a major life rift in stillmoor
go to stillmoor and find or open a major life rift (NOT an expert life rift or a raid life rift)

major life rifts are opened on the normal blue/white tears, not the yellow raid tears.
if you have a decent amount of PA points spent in the LIFE tree then you will be able to use the ‘major life lure’ to open your own (find it in your spell book under ‘ascended powers’)
otherwise, you will need to just keep popping rifts open with your normal planar lure and hope you get lucky.
if the map is full of the wrong type of rifts then either close them or switch shards.

you will find major and minor tears, you will probably have more luck popping the major tears, but dont ignore the minor ones as sometimes these pop major rifts too
the rifts level doesnt matter, a level 45 rift on the east will work just as well as a level 50 rift on the west, the rift just needs to be inside stillmoor
you do however need to get the rift all the way to stage 5 and then close it, letting the timer time out on stage 3 or 4 will not work for the quest.
you do not need to be mentored down to get XP for the rift

when you picked up the quest a ‘dowsing rod’ would have been placed in your quest items bag
after you close the rift the dowsing rod will become a usable item on your quest sticky
your quest objective will change to ‘use the dowsing rod’

a VERY LARGE yellow quest will appear that covers most of stillmoor
when you use the dowsing rod a large beam of light will be emitted from your character towards the area you need to travel to

standing on higher ground when you use the rod may help you see where abouts it ‘lands’
after you use the rod the first time your quest objective will change to ‘follow key lines to find the ritual of nechtan’
this line will only show up in certain areas of the map and are not very accurate!
to make things easy, just go to /setwaypoint 1588 3445 – here you will find the ritual

your quest objective will now change to ‘kill nechtan’
kill the 4 priestesses and then kill nechtan
your quest objective will now change to ‘return to shyla starhearth in sanctum’
go to the bottom floor of the sanctum tower to shyla starhearth near the throne at /setwaypoint 7515 3052
hand in the quest

TO COMPLETE: convert aelfwar back to tavril

you will receive a quest item called the ‘psalm of tavril
you need to use this item on the correct mobs in stillmoor
in stillmoor you will find 4 very large quest circles covering most of the southern area
i find the best place to do this quest is the area i have circled in red below called ‘edgewood’
simply run around this area targeting all the humanoid mobs and using the book quest item on them
if the book works then the mobs will change and become green/friendly to you, if it doesnt work then the mob will attack you

this is COMPLETELY RANDOM and quite frankly is really annoying, you may get 3 in a row, or you could be trying different mobs for 10mins and get none at all.. either way, dont give up ūüôā you can do this!
here you can see the book working on an emerald scale packleader, magus and priestess

your quest objective will now change to ‘return to shyla starhearth in sanctum’
go to the bottom floor of the sanctum tower to shyla starhearth near the throne at /setwaypoint 7515 3052
