- Journey to and then enter the dungeon specified.
- Track down the undead creature and kill it.
- Return to the Missionary before the time limit expires to complete the quest.
After joining the Benevolence of Mara a Missionary from the Temple will offer the Agent a quest that goes beyond the morals of the Temple. The Benevolence's philosophy "forbids [them] to harm another living creature willingly", but this must be briefly ignored as a spirit has begun haunting one of their sacred sites. The Agent is duly tasked with destroying the spirit's mortal form, found in one of the Iliac Bay's many dungeons.
The Troubled SpiritEdit
The Agent must journey to and then enter the specified dungeon to begin their hunt, battling through the usual collection of dungeon creatures. The spirit can be found at any point within, although identifying which creature the spirit inhabits is impossible to determine. Indeed, it is only when the creature is destroyed that the spirit utters:
With that the dungeon will be cleansed, meaning the Agent can return to the Missionary to complete the quest.
The Missionary will reward the Agent with a random amount of , if they return before the time limit expires. The success or failure of the Agent in undertaking the quest will affect their reputation in the Temple:
