- Levitate or 6 Parcels or equivalent, to leave Hellgate.
- Key 3012 to open Hellgate, unless open already.
Go to Ab'Dendriel underground and seek the staircase in the middle of town. Go down twice and then follow the path south and then east until you find a door with a blackboard labeling it Hellgate (here). If the door is locked, use Key 3012 to open it. Go on through and straight north is another door, which also requires Key 3012 to open. The portal on the west side of the room will take you out. Instead, go north through the door and into the portal to Hellgate. Keep in mind that when you enter the portal there is no turning back; in order to leave you must take a fairly long route.
Go up the stairs and across the bridge to the west. Follow the cave west until you find a path leading south. Go south and follow the cave south-east until you find the NPC Ashari. Ask Ashari for the tasks you want to do; the keywords are Magic, Fire, Mushroom, Watering. You can accept all these tasks at once if you wish. All of these tasks are daily tasks - you can complete them every 20 hours, the timer starting when you turn the respective mission in. If you do all 4 tasks within a day you can receive a bonus.

Reward: 2000 experience.
Note: if you are grouping the tasks, it is recommended to do this one last.
You will have received an Elven Vial from Ashari. With it, follow the cave west of Ashari all the way until it splits into three different paths. Follow the southern-most path and go down the hole at the end (here).
You'll now be in a large cave with leaves scattered all over the floor. Go north-east, south and down the hole.
Follow the cave south until you find a small lake. There is a specific tile in this lake you can obtain water from, the tile without any tree roots. It is on the north side just behind the tree (see also the image below). Use the Elven Vial on the tile to obtain a Filled Elven Vial.
- The water seems to develop a life of its own as it pours slowly into the vial.
- You get a strange feeling of great unrest unround you as the leaves themselves start to come alive.
Now report to Ashari about your mission. Note that after 15(?) minutes, the water inside the vial will have poured out and you will have to repeat the task. For this reason it is recommended to do this task last, if you are doing all tasks at once.
Reward: 2100 experience.
Ashari gives you a Trained Fire Bug to disinfect diseased mushrooms. Go west to the far end of the cave. When the cave splits into 3 paths, take the middle path to the south-west. Follow the cave and go down the hole at the end (here). Go down the ramp to a Bonelord cave. You will find Bonelords and Gazers in here. All around the cave you will find various diseased mushrooms. Use the Trained Fire Bug on 5 of these to complete your task.
- The mushroom has been sterilised and is no longer infected. — Succeeded
- The mushroom has been sterilised. You treated enough mushrooms to keep the spreading infection at bay. — Succeeded & completed task
Report back to Ashari about your mushroom task.
Ashari gave you a Firecatcher Urn to catch fire with. Go to the far west end of the cave, continuing north-west when it splits in 3 directions. Go down the hole at the end of the cave (here). Now go east all the way, cross the bridge and go down the hole. Go west and cross the bridge, turning north immediately after you cross it. Go down the hole you find (here).
You're now in a small cave with Fire Elementals. You must kill the Fire Elementals and use the Firecatcher Urn on their corpses immediately after they are killed. You have only 10 seconds to use the urn on their corpses. You must catch 5 flames to complete the task. About 70% of the time you will fail to catch it. Whether you succeed or fail, the corpse becomes unusable and you must find another; therefore, you'll need to kill about 17 Fire Elementals to complete this task. The Fire Elementals' spawn cannot be blocked.
- The flickering flames flinch from your grasp. — Failed
- The flames of the elemental seem to be sucked into the urn. — Succeeded
- Finally, the urn is filled with flames. The urn is a lot hotter now but still cool enough to carry. — Succeeded & completed task
If you stay in the cave for a long time, the fumes will start intoxicating you. In order to avoid this drunkenness you can leave the cave for a moment when you're waiting for the spawn, or just use a Dwarven Ring to deal with it.

Ashari sends you to cultivate wild magic found within a nearby cave. He has given you a Empty Receptacle to collect it in. Go far west until the cave splits into 3. Choose the north-west passage and go down the hole at the end of the cave. Go north-west and down the hole (here).
You will find yourself in a crystal cave with visible essence of magic. Use your Empty Receptacle on the different colored sparks in the following order:
- Wild Fury Magic ( red)
- You catch a sparkle of wild fury magic and capture it inside the receptacle.
- Wild Nature Magic ( green)
- You cut off a chunk of wild nature magic and capture it inside the receptacle.
- Wild Fire Magic ( yellow)
- You grab a piece of wild fire magic and capture it inside the receptacle.
- Wild Water Magic ( blue)
- You soak up a bit of wild water magic and capture it inside the receptacle.
If you get the order wrong your collection is reset and you will have to start over (from red again).
When you have done this, your Empty Receptacle becomes a Filled Receptacle. Return to the repenters' camp and talk to Larfion the Shaman to turn in your task. Be careful when speaking to Larfion; if you say the wrong thing your quest will be reset.
When you receive the bonus you also gain access to the shortcut just east of Ashari. This shortcut will take you just passed the rotworms toward the Hellgate Library. You can only use this shortcut 5 times in your character's lifetime, with no way to replenish them.
