Mordremoth’s corruptive power is spreading. The lethal vine attacks on Concordia and Fort Salma are not the extent of the dragon’s danger. Now the threat is making itself felt in the far reaches of Ascalon. The charr in the Iron Marches have witnessed an outbreak of Mordremoth’s corruptive power, and they’re in need of your aid! Reports are coming in of more and more entangled waypoints – will Taimi be able to set them to rights?
