This quest begins with Brother Pharad of the Whistling Fists Clan. You'll find him on the 1st floor of the Tower of the Four Winds (17, 36, -169).

However, before you may enter the Tower in the first place, you must have completed Improving Relations with the Locals and The Stolen Tome quests. After you're done with them, you can try to answer a series of questions from Brother Lika. You'll find him just outside the tower door (16, 34, -154).

You will learn the answers to these questions by listening to Master Long Shan's speech. Talk to Brother Lika and then wait for Master Long Shan in the courtyard at 6:30am game time. When you're ready, go back and answer Brother Lika's questions, which will be given to you randomly from the list below. If you answer one incorrectly, you must wait five minutes before you can try again.

After you have correctly answered the questions, head to Brother Pharad (17, 36, -169) to begin the quest in earnest. He wants you to help him mediate some disputes between several different monk orders. He will send you into the Mediation Chamber, a solo instance behind the Tower (24, 34, -179).

STEPS:

1) Once you zone in, talk to Brother Pharad. He will ask you to convince each representative of the monk orders that merging or taking over another clan is not a wise decision.

2) Speak with Master Luris of the Ashen Order. You must respond correctly to get the update.

Response 1: The fracture within your order may cause someone to question your purpose.
Response 2: You should not rely upon others to make up for the resolve you lack on your own.
Response 3: How can you hope to benefit the world when you need someone else to solve your internal conflicts?
Response 4: You cannot hope to be worthy of the legacy of Zan Fi until you can mend that which has been broken within your order.

3) Speak with Sister Shoren of the Silent Fist Clan. You must respond correctly to get the update.

Response 1: There is more to greatness than avoiding conflict.
Response 2: What has the Silent Fist Clan done to take a greater role in world events?
Response 3: To be truly worthy of this clan, your order needs to prove it can aid all of Norrath.
Response 4: You shouldn't need to join with them to fulfill your duty to Norrath. That should already be your goal.

4) Speak with Disciple Varlox of the Swifttail Caste. You must respond correctly to get the update.

Response 1: A union with the whistling fists could diminish the purity of your order.
Response 2: Why would you risk the strength of your order by tainting it with these humans?
Response 3: Acquiring knowledge with the price of losing your identity does not seem a wise trade.
Response 4: The strength is already within you to accomplish what you seek.

5) Go back to Brother Pharad for your reward, which will be +200 faction from the Whistling Fists Clan. After completing this AND the Balance of Nature quest you will have access to the 2nd level of the Tower of Four Winds.
