The Dark Path
The Pagan Saga
Thanks to the perseverance of our brave men, the malignant essence channeled into the interconnections between the world of Sosaria and the world of Pagan has not yet managed to reach our world, yet as we struggled to defend the world of Pagan the evil sorcerer Mondain thanks to the knowledge obtained through the Black Compendium has plotted behind our backs!
The interconnection between our worlds thanks to the Ethereal Void generated by the appearance of the three Shadowlords and their fortress on Pagan is still far from healthy! Mondain has managed to recreate robotic creatures that embody the powers of the four titans of Pagan and his creature par excellence, "Exodus". These creatures are now locked up inside the rooms of the Dark Path to defend the now stronghold of the mighty and immortal "Batlin"!
Among other things, we know that Iolo, Shamino and Gwenno have fallen victim to the spell of the Guardian and are working for him in the form of the three Bane in defense of the Serpent Gates that communicate with the Dark Path!
On the other hand, we are still in possession of the Serpent Pillar built years ago by Professor Herbert to reach the Dark Path, unfortunately at the moment even that is inaccessible and we have to find a way to make it work to enter the Dark Path and try to stop the accretion of their power!
The Dark Path Mission
Batlin was cautious this time, he prevented the awakening of our Serpent Pillar in Umbra, but thanks to the great knowledge of the Moonglow Wizards we managed to understand how to access the Dark Path. The only way to access the Dark Path is to use a Serpent Jawbone!
This magical item allows you to cross the border of the Ethereal Void and reach the Dark Path! Unfortunately, however, it is not complete, a total of 18 Tooth are needed to complete it and we only have 13 Tooth. We must be able to find the remaining 5!
It takes a total of 18 Tooth to complete it and we only have 13 Tooth. Talking to the Time Lord it will be possible to receive (every six hours from the completion of the quest) a "Toothless Serpent Jawbone" with already 13 Tooth set out of 18 total, we must be able to find the remaining 5! Once found we will have an "Unfinished Serpent Jawbone"
To complete the Unfinished Serpent Jawbone by staring at the Teeth you will need to use the "Serpent Blood" which can be collected from Professor Herbert's table only once a day!
By collecting this item and using the Serpent Pillar it will be possible to complete it by receiving the Serpent Jawbone!
Instead, if you have already completed a Serpent Jawbone during the day, it will be possible to resume the quest from the Time Lord and subsequently deliver it to Professor Herbert's forge to receive further Quest Points and Void Coins!
But where can we find these Tooth? We know that the Tooth are all in Fire Island, here's what we need to do to get them back:

The Dark Path is an interconnection of passages located in the ethereal void that allows you to move to different places thanks to the Serpent Jawbone, for some time now, Batlin has taken possession of this place by closing some passages and creating a real fortress in defense of him. This is how the Dark Path works:
Once you have completed the Serpent Jawbone you will be able to access the Dark Path from the Serpent Pillar located in Umbra (you can access both alone and in a party and you have to stand on the altar to re-enter the access area)
If the snake comes to life the Dark Path will be occupied, if it is off it will be possible to enter using the Serpent Jawbone on the altar
The Dark Path consists of 5 rooms that precede the central room of "Batlin", once we enter the dungeon we will first collide with the Clockwork Creatures created by Mondain to finally get to the Batlin dungeon, it is possible to advance only after defeating the boss of the previous one, these are the rooms:
In this event it will be possible to activate a Points System that will allow you to earn a certain drop sooner or later by accumulating points by killing the Dark Path bosses in the Dungeon rooms, it will be possible to earn points both in instance of the dungeon started personally, or by helping your companions in party! Using this shield at the entrance to the Dark Path the points system will be activated, it will only be possible to activate it once a day and it will remain active until the "round" of the Point-System is completed
When you get the prize you will receive a "Pagan Chest" in a bag with one of the "Pagan Artifacts" inside or alternatively a "Serpent's Jawbone" which will allow you to teleport directly from home to one of the Ilshenar dungeons present on the options gump !
In each of the 6 rooms there will be a chance to drop! In this particular event the drop will be placed inside a chest placed on a pedestal in the boss room. All the players present in the dungeon will still have access to this chest and it will not be openable only by those who have activated the Dark Path! In this chest you will find Void Coins (item deliverable to the collector), the possible drop and possibly one of the fragments of the Serpent Gate that can be completely reconstructed if all the pieces of the graphics are obtained!
Artifacts & Special Items
In each room of the Dark Path there will be the possibility of receiving one of these Artifacts, some of which can be dropped in more than one room while others will only be droppable by Batlin. These Pagan Artifacts are pigmentable with Pigments and Natural Dye! Here is the drop list:
