The DoN Progression is highly recommended for any and all players, regardless of what the current expansion is.

The high level raids can be 1 grouped with ease with the current gear these days.

The most challenging part to this progression is building up faction through the solo tasks so that you can start the group or raid tasks required to get your rewards.

However, there are several players out there that can hail the group or raid quests for you so that you can skip some of the faction work.

Most of the group or raid tasks take around 10-15 minutes to complete.

There are two different types of faction “Good” and Evil”  – Most players do the “Good” faction – Norrath’s Keepers

The content in Dragons of Norrath is suitable for characters of level 65 and up.

Obtain required faction

The Norrath’s Keepers camp can be found in the Lavastorm Mountains tunnels leading to The Broodlands.

In order to begin more advanced tasks within the Norrath’s Keepers camp, you must be of INDIFFERENT faction or higher.

You can reach this faction by doing various solo or single group tasks.

Solo tasks are given out on on behalf of the Norrath’s Keepers at the Wayfarers Camp by Wayfarers Mercenaries Bitral and Elanye (/loc +2240, -25, +70). Kanetheus Forestwalker, Bianca Galbraith, Boldger Bristlebeard, and Gordish Frozenheart offer single group tasks at the Norrath Keepers camp.

Upon completing solo tasks, you receive experience and the following faction hits:

+Norrath’s Keepers
+Firiona Vie
-Dark Reign
-Lanys T`Vyl

You may only receive group tasks yourself if you are already at indifferent faction, but if you complete them with someone else, you will receive Radiant Crystals, which can be used to purchase items from Tatsujiro the Serene (once you are at indifferent faction or better), and a Norrath’s Keepers Token, which you can turn in to Tatsujiro for the aforementioned faction hits.

Tier 1: Gift of the Keepers

Upon reaching indifferent faction with Norrath’s Keepers, you are able to do more advanced missions for the good side, provided you are at least level 65.

Begin by speaking with Chieftain Relae Aderi.

You say, ‘Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi’

Chieftain Relae Aderi nods his head in acknowledgement and smiles. ‘Welcome to the Norrath’s Keepers’ enclave. We are busy protecting the way of the right and honorable now. Our world is at a crossroads and we must endeavor to ensure we maintain order as much as we can. Should you wish to [help] us, do say so.’

You say, ‘I wish to help you.’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘Those are encouraging words and we will gladly take your offer. Please see Nylaen Kel`Ther, my trusted friend. While his tasks may not seem glorious, they are necessary for us to gain a foothold against the Dark Reign, the followers of Lanys T`Vyl, the Child of Hate. They have their grim eyes set on seeing the end of us all. To begin, from the volcano, we need ingredients to create an antidote, help collecting Delvian teeth for our arrowheads, and handling goblin greed in the Stillmoon Temple. When you satisfy these needs, then we shall speak again.’

You have received a character flag!

Now talk with Private Nylaen Kel`Ther, next to Chieftain Relae Aderi. Note that you must be at least level 65 to receive the tier 1 quests.

You say, ‘Hail, Private Nylaen Kel`Ther’

You have been assigned the task ‘Creating an Antidote’.
You have been assigned the task ‘Burning Arrows’.
You have been assigned the task ‘Greed of the Goblins’.

Private Nylaen Kel`Ther says ‘We all have the opportunity to rise to greatness with Norrath’s Keepers and our honorable allies across the lands.’

The tasks are as follows:

Creating an Antidote” — Loot five Boiling Lavaspinner Bloods from Lavaspinner’s Lair
Burning Arrows” — Loot five Delvian Goblin Teeth from Tirranun’s Delve
Greed of the Goblins” — Kill 11 Stillmoon Laborers in Stillmoon Temple

Upon completing these tasks, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi:

You say, ‘Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘Welcome back, ______. News of your good deeds is passing quickly through our ranks. I wish we could say your work is done here, but it is not. The goblins of Tirranun’s Delve heard of your efforts against their kin in the Stillmoon Temple and they have vowed revenge. One in particular, Gimblax, plans to hunt you down. We know where he is now and if you move quickly, perhaps you can reach him first. Speak to Dilar Nelune and he will give you further guidance.’

You have received a character flag!

Speak to Keeper Dilar Nelune. You will receive a single-group task, “Children of Gimblax.” The average level in the group must be at least 68.

Children of Gimblax” — You must hunt down and kill the goblin Gimblax in Tirranun’s Delve.


Upon completion of this task, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi.

You say, ‘Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘It is time to repay you for all you have done. Firiona Vie has chosen to share a divine gift with you that will only grow stronger if you continue to help us. This magic to be instilled with you is a fitting reward, but you will fast lose it should you ever aid the Dark Reign — in fact, it will disappear instantly!’

You have received a character flag!

You have gained an ability point! You now have [XX] ability points.
You have gained the ability “Gift of the Keepers” at a cost of 0 ability points.

The new ability “Gift of the Keepers” gives a maximum stats increase of 10 per stat.

Tier 2: Valor of the Keepers

You must have AMIABLE faction standing or better to obtain Tier 2 tasks. First speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi again:

You say, ‘Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘I am delighted to see that you got to Gimblax before he was able to get to you. It would be a great loss to us if he were to find you and carry out his plans! You have done so well for us that we have much more for you to do if you are still willing. If you wish to help us turn the sand goblins’ anger, recover the lost map, and protect our kirin contact, please speak to Nylaen Kel`Ther and he will give you more [work]. May the light of the world shine upon you, ______!’

You say, ‘What work?’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘This may be presumptuous and I’m not certain the kind of company you keep, but should you find the will and way, there are stories of a dragon of lava that goes by the very name of that volcano, Tirranun. We have found an entrance that would seem to lead to its lair, but none of us have found the numbers or bravery to attempt to find it. With your associations, perhaps you would have better luck, at your leisure of course. We must learn all we can about the dragons for we fear that the Dark Reign wish to gain control over them to use against us. In the meantime, we have bestowed upon you a reward for your assistance. Safe travels, ______.’

You have received a character flag!

Speak with Private Nylaen Kel`Ther if you are at least level 67:

You say, ‘Hail, Private Nylaen Kel`Ther’

You have been assigned the task ‘Turn the Tides of the Sand’.
You have been assigned the task ‘Recover the Lost Map’.
You have been assigned the task ‘Defend the Kirin Contact’.

Private Nylaen Kel`Ther says ‘We all have the opportunity to rise to greatness with Norrath’s Keepers and our honorable allies across the lands.’

You receive three new tasks which may be accomplished solo or in a group:

Turn the Tides of the Sand” — Loot seven Sandy Goblin Bloods from Stillmoon Temple
Recover the Lost Map” — Loot eight Shredded Map Pieces from The Ascent
Defend the Kirin Contact” — Kill nine Kirins in The Ascent

Upon completing these tasks, you can speak with Keeper Dilar Nelune to receive a group mission called “Sickness of the Spirit“.

Once that is complete, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi:

You say, ‘Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘Your advancement and accomplishments are many and you have our gratitude, but I must implore you to continue to help us. There are few as capable as you to accept the challenges that lie ahead. Dilar Nelune has been charged with giving you the information needed to making an offering of peace and reassurance to our kirin contact. Also, I have permitted Ekiltu Verlor to give you access to all the information you would need to bring an end to the terrible dervish, Emoush. Bring me evidence you have overcome this challenge.’

You have received a character flag!

After that, speak with Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor to be offered your first raid event:

Calling Emoush” — 24-player raid in Tirranun’s Delve, results in Glowing Stone Fragment


Loot the Glowing Stone Fragment from Emoush the Destroyer and bring it to the Chieftain.

You have received a character flag!

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘Norrath’s Keepers acknowledges your steadfastness and resolve in our name and Firiona herself wishes to strengthen the gift she has bestowed upon you so you may serve us with greater power.’

You have received a character flag!

You have gained an ability point! You now have 2 ability points.
You have gained the ability “Valor of the Keepers” at a cost of 0 ability points.

Valor of the Keepers adds 250 hp/mana/end to your base stats. You also receive your 69th level spell/tome.

Tier 3: Embrace of the Keepers

You must have high AMIABLE faction standing or better to obtain Tier 3 tasks. You must also be at least 68th level (possible at 67th?) to request the tasks.

You say, ‘Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi’

Chieftain Relae Aderi bows as he recognizes you. ‘Your good deeds in the name of the Keepers is gaining you a great reputation and the requests for your assistance come from more and more places. I would ask you to continue with your good work and we still have several tasks you may be interested in. Your skill and prowess have earned you entrance into the more [lauded] circles of our ranks, so what we ask now is of greater importance.’

You have received a character flag!

You say, ‘Lauded?’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘Indeed. The people who now know and respect you are some of the closest to Firiona Vie, the Chosen of Tunare, and the leader of Norrath’s Keepers. If you wish to stand alongside those who support and serve the Chosen, then you must continue to prove your worth as they all did. There are many [quests] that must be undertaken. You must speak to Nylaen Kel`Ther for those. And you must meet Areha Burina. She has uncovered a path to the [wyrms] of Stillmoon Temple, though our interest in them right now isn’t immediate or required.’

You say, ‘What quests?’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘You must protect the purity of the waters of Stillmoon Temple, secure the knowledge of the scrolls of the temple, and thwart the attack of the Snowfoot goblins. Speak to Nylaen again and he will give you more information. When you are successful, return to me and I will direct you to my officers for more challenging work.’

You say, ‘What wyrms?’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘There are two dragons that protect and serve in the Stillmoon Temple and Ascent — Rikkukin and Kessdona. They are mates of a breed of dragon made of precious metals. They are believed to be the first children of Veeshan on Norrath. They are dragons of great wisdom and knowledge, but don’t be fooled by their sleek beauty. Once in the past, I believe dragons of their kind had betrayed our own Firiona. We fear they intend to betray the good of Norrath too if we lend our minds and hearts to them. You will nearly need an army of your own to overcome these dragons and we have no requirement of you to that end, but they are yours to discover.’

Speak with Private Nylaen Kel`Ther.

You say, ‘Hail, Private Nylaen Kel`Ther’

You have been assigned the task ‘Protect the Waters’.
You have been assigned the task ‘The Sacred Scrolls’.
You have been assigned the task ‘Snowfoot Revenge’.

Protect the Waters” — Loot five Purified Nest Waters from Stillmoon Temple
The Sacred Scrolls” — Loot seven Ancient Scrolls of Wisdom from Thundercrest Isles
Snowfoot Revenge” — Kill 10 Snowfoot Goblins in The Ascent

Speak with the Chieftain, and then to Keeper Dilar Nelune. This will open a group mission:

History of the Isle” – Talk to Keeper Dilar Nelune

After that, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi:

You say, ‘Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi’

Chieftain Relae Aderi nods. ‘We are always on the defensive and must continue to keep our minds and spirits up and charging ahead. The tasks we present to you now are more daunting. Having proven yourself and gained our trust brings greater challenges to you. We ask you to learn the history of Thundercrest Isle, endure a Trial of Perseverance issued by the goblins in the Stillmoon Temple, and take on the great spider queen, Volkara. You’ll need to speak to Ekiltu Verlor for particulars and then you must return to me and give me proof you have overcome these tasks. And do introduce yourself to Areha Burina.’

You have received a character flag!

After that, speaking with Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor will open up two more raid events:

Trial of Perseverance” — 24-player raid in Stillmoon Temple, results in Goblin Warlord’s Beads from A Stillmoon Warlord.


Volkara’s Bite” — 42-player raid in Lavaspinner’s Lair, results in Lava Spider Spinners


Upon successful completion, loot the Goblin Warlord’s Beads at the end of the Perseverance trial from a Stillmoon warlord and the Lava Spider Spinners from Volkara. Turning these two items in to the Chieftain results in:

-Two AAs
-New ability: Embrace of the Keepers (increase buff slot limit)

After completing Tier 3, Boldger Bristlebeard will offer three new group tasks (unrelated to progress): Forbin’s Elixir, Infested, and Storming the Goblin Temple.

Tier 4: Power of the Keepers

You say, ‘Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘Every day we learn more about the Nest and, sadly, the intentions of the Dark Reign toward the good folk of Norrath. These are indeed troubling times, but I have no doubt that we will prevail with Firiona at our side. Go speak to Ekiltu Verlor. With your skills and talents, we believe you may have a good chance to overcome Shogurei, the Guardian of the Sands. With a smaller force, you may be able to accept the challenge issued by the goblins of Thundercrest Isles. We must attempt to beat this trial ahead of the Dark Reign so that perhaps the goblins may favour us and ease their anger towards us. You must bring proof you have conquered both of these tasks.’

You have received a character flag!

You must have kindly faction standing or better to obtain Tier 4 tasks. Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor now has two new raid events:

Guardian of the Sands” — 42-player raid in Stillmoon Temple, results in Quintessence of Sand


Goblin Dojo” — 24-player raid in Thundercrest Isles, killing the goblin Storm Reach Sensei results in Meditation Stone

Loot the Meditation Stone from the goblin raid, and Quintessence of Sand from the Guardian of the Sands. Bring them back to Chieftain Relae Aderi for a character flag. Go through the dialogue and receive another raid mission:

An End to the Storms” — 54-player raid in Thundercrest Isles, results in Yar`Lir’s Fang


Upon giving Chieftain Relae Aderi the fang, receive:
-Two AAs
-New ability, Power of the Keepers (chance increase of critical hits/blasts, heals, and DoTs)

Tier 5: Sanctity of the Keepers

You must have WARMLY faction standing or better to obtain Tier 5 tasks. Continue speaking with the Chieftain.

You say, ‘Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says, ‘As we feared, Yar’lir was not kind to us, but it is to be expected. This fang will be treasured and protected while our researcher study it. It is not time to dawdle though. I’m sure you’re already aware that the death of Yar’Lir caused a great disturbance in the Nest. Each time the storm dragon’s magic is interrupted, the Nest and resting place of the eggs of the Nest’s dragons become darker and we’re not sure why. In order to learn more, please talk to Dilar Nelune and Ekiltu Verlor. They have new work for you — to investigate a curse in the Nest and to learn about a dark drake by the name of Ju’rek. You will need to bring me proof of your success.’

Receive a group mission and a raid:

Origins of the Curse” — The Accursed Nest

The Curse of Ju`rek” — 24-player raid in The Accursed Nest, results in Diseased Wing Fragments from Ju`rek the Corrupted.

When the raid is complete, hand in the Diseased Wing Fragments.

You have received a character flag!

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘Gracious, that curse certainly seems to run deep. You have accomplished what very few have been able to and we’d like to reward you. As you may have already ascertained, there is a [dragon] in the Nest that we have yet to confront. That falls to you now.’

You say, ‘Dragon?’

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘We hear that the dragon in the Nest was Yar’Lir’s mate, also a dragon of storms. But as you confronted Yar’Lir and disrupted her magic, the twisting caverns of the Nest were fully bared and a sickly darkness washed over them. It seems the curse you investigated was somehow unleashed at that moment and the dragon of the Nest was touched and darkened by it, but we don’t know more than that. He is angry, though, without question. Speak to Areha Burina.’

You have received a character flag!

Captain Areha Burina is located due west from the campfire in the middle of the Norrath’s Keepers camp, at +3635, +575.

You say, ‘Hail, Captain Areha Burina’

Captain Areha Burina bows. ‘I see a good heart in you and a measure of bravery. Serve Firiona Vie and Norrath’s Keepers well!’

You receive:

In the Shadows” — 54-player raid in The Accursed Nest, results in Shadowscale of Vishimtar from Vishimtar the Fallen.

Hand this in to Chieftain Relae Aderi.

You have received a character flag!

Chieftain Relae Aderi says ‘Your wondrous deeds will become woven into bards’ songs, ______! You are a soldier of balance and good and for that Firiona is granting the greatest divine gift that any more can bear. Use it well and continue your service of keeping evil at bay, ______.’

You have received a character flag!

You have gained an ability point! You now have 2 ability points.
You have gained the ability “Sanctity of the Keepers” at a cost of 0 ability points.
