Reekon spies on the Spectral Knights in lizard form so hears which of the Darkling Lords' power-staffs they consider the worst challenges. After the Spectral Knights unsuccessfully request Merklynn to give them something to use against Darkstorm's decay and the Bearer of Knowledge tells Arzon of the Eternal Spring which would do just this, Reekon goes back to the Darkling Lords and tells them that this is their weapon that most troubles Leoric, among others. As the Spectral Knights travel to the spring, the Darkling Lords attack and force the others away from Leoric, whom Darkstorm ages into an old man. Then they advance toward the water, intending to stop him from being rejuvenated, and, after Cindarr's attempt to help an infant scorpion-monster brings the wrath of its mother, Cravex manipulates it into panicking and attacking the Spectral Knights as they approach.

Feryl, you found the dragonroot Merklynn wanted.
Dragon? Huh! It looks more like that Reekon: twisted and weird.
