Attune yourself to fire through his destruction. Then find a tear of the Messenger of the Vigil, it will bind most any faetouched creature.

    People complain about having to wait for the correct invasion and therefore being unable to complete this quest until later levels. However, while invasions used to be the only way to find these bosses, you can now lure them separately.

    Cinderon: From March of the Gedio fire invasion event or Cinderon Lure for 150 Planarite.
    Gnarladon: From Arboreal Assault life invasion event or Gnarladon Lure for 150 Planarite.

    To use the lure, find any tear in Silverwood and use the lure nearby instead of your ascended ability or Planar Lure.

    Warning: These bosses have over 30,000 HP and hit very hard. Make sure there are other people around to help if you are doing this in your 20s.

    This quest is really.... not hard... but you have to insist a lot until you find the boss you need.

    First of all, the ChaosInc coords of the Messenger of the Vigil are correct. I thought I would find him near Fae or something like that, until I read the post above.

    Cinderon, it's a boss from Fire Event, there are variuos bosses, so he spawns in an event it's pure azar.
    Gnarladon, it's a boss from Life Event, and like the other one, its random that he is the boss.

    In my case, with Cinderon, my raid tagged the boss and looted the quest thing. With Gnarladon, it was grey to me, my raid don't tagged him, but I also was able to loot the thing.

    Hope this helps a little...

    This post SHOULD be stickied somewhere, NO one I talked to knew about these lures! Just bought one and yelled out in chat to anyone who needed and a bunch of us FINALLY got the quest done!

    THANKS to Bushkanaka86 for posting this.. don't know how I missed this the first time I'm sure I looked here before =O

    --
    FYI:
    You buy the lures in 'Sanctum' city for 150 planarite each, from the quartermasters in the 'Santum of the Vigil' room on the ground floor in the middle building:
    -Quartermaster Unkrat sells "Cinderon Lure"
    -Quartermaster Queb sells "Gnarladon lure"

    The Defiant version of this quest originally required specific event bosses and sub-bosses, then they changed it so all you needed was closing any 5 Death Rifts in Freemarch (like you can actually AVOID doing that).
