Threads of Thought

An NPC mage interested in finding respite for the lost souls of Magincia gives this quest. He is located next to the ruined Moongate of Magincia on both facets. His exact name varies on each shard, but he is a mage and his name is in yellow type. This quest may only be completed once per character, although one character may do all the legwork gathering the threads and then trade them to other characters or players. Some of the threads stack with others, but some strangely do not. This is because there are many different versions of the same thread. Each gives a different message if double clicked and only those with the same message will stack.

This quest is part of the storyline for the Warriors of Destiny saga and appeared as part of the War of Shadows chapter with Publish 56.


The Forsaken Souls have become listless, desperate to find a way home. You will need to convince them that they need to go on. Please bring me five Threads of Thought that they leave behind. While I do not have much, I can give you what I have in return for your help.

Walk Through

To complete the quest, first double click the quest giver and accept the Threads of Thought quest. Then gather or aquire 5 of the correct threads. Next use your text menu and chose toggle quest item and target the requested threads to mark them. Lastly, double click the quest giver to complete the quest. Do not forget to accept your reward.


Found on Forsaken Souls wandering in Magincia. These spirits names are gray, their shrouds are light shadow colored, and they are not aggressive. They move very quickly around town in preset patterns so it can be hard to catch them. Use Exorcism on them to send them to the afterlife. Only one spirit seems to be released per spell no matter if multiple are in range. Sometimes they will drop the Thread of Thought which will appear in your pack(not looted off corpse of defeated Forsaken Souls).
