Hi all <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />I was given a quest by Rath somethingorother in Eldar Grove a few levels ago. It showed up in my Hallmark Quest area. He wanted me to kill 10 adepts in the VS. It took me till level 17/18 to pull this off. I immediately ran back to him and he said I should check out the Vale of Shattering all the way across Antonica. Went and back. Sent me back to see a Dwarf about the cave-in. All cross Antonica again. Back. Sent me check Holly Windstalker's grave, at which time 8-10 cowardly bloodsabers jumped me and killed me deed. After recruiting an nice mystic in bear form nearby I dispatched the sabers. Back to Rath. He said nice work and gave me a nice bracelet and some silver. That's it!The quest disappeared from my Hallmark Area. To check, I ran back to the Vale of Shattering and it (the cave-in blocking the path) is now activateable, but says I need a group of 4-6 to enter.Here's where I am confused. I thought Hallmark Quests were part of the class advancement path. I was thinking this would result in making some progress toward mystic, but nothing like that happened. What in fact did I do?Should I try to recruit a group of 4-6 to enter a zone I know nothing about? Help!Thanks,Seraphina 18th ShamanessAntonia Bayle

<DIV>Vale of the Shattering is a "raid - ish" zone.  You will want an extremely strong group of 6 or a couple of groups of 6 to go in there.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The fact that it shows up as a "Hallmark" quest can be taken a couple ways:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>1.  It's a bug, mislabeled and will be moved to the "Access" quests type at some point.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>2.  There is some sort of "epic" encounter that is crucial to a Shaman's advancement which will happen in that zone at some point in the future.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>
