|To Start: Speak to Darkthorne in Briarwood Caverns.|
Darkthorne says,"The Gloam have trapped Darkthorne in the Heartseed Chamber."
The Gloam have found Darkthorne and have trapped her in the Heartseed Chamber. Defend Darkthorne until she can find a way out.
This is a Combat quest.
Walk up to Darkthorne to start the quest.
Darkthorne says, "Oh no! The Gloam!"
The Gloam says, "Ah, at last. I've found you. There is no escaping the Gloam!"
Darkthorne says, "-Player name-, hold them off, I just need time."
Darkthorne: "-Player name-, before I can complete the sealing I must send you away for safety. I've written a message in the Hero's Journal that you must take to the queen"
Red text appears as the Gloam shouts his parting words: "I may be sealed away, but I have the Heartseed! Soon my corruption will consume Sacred Grove!" (evil laugh)
Speak to Pappy Farnum to finish the quest. He'll say, "So you're the great hero Darkthorne sent eh? You don't look like much but we Farnums are people of our word, we'll help you do what you need to do."
Note: This quest is not available on the PS3 version of the game. It was added to the PC version with the 03/17/2013 update.
