Archmage Berinand in the Transitus Shield wants you to enter the Nexus and collect 5 Arcane Splinters from Crystalline Protectors.
Though we may be witnessing the end of our existence, I can't help but marvel. I've learned more in my short time here than in decades of studies.
These Ancients are being exposed to incredible levels of arcane energy. It's literally transforming them into something... different.
I'm confident that there's another stage in their metamorphosis. I'll need you to actually enter the Nexus, [player], and find me some evidence of their final state.
Do be careful....
