It cannot be started until the player starting it has reached level 30 and has completed the previous two quests (Free Yourself of the Dragon's Influence & Find the Lair of the Wyrm). Bailey the Town Crier recommends a minimum level of 30 to take part in this quest series. The quest scroll is dropped for the quest owner when Find the Lair of the Wyrm is completed or can be purchased for 4 gems from the Quest Shop (by players of at least level 30) after completion of previous parts of the arc.
This is one of the harder bosses in the game. The Shadow Wyrm's HP (1500) makes this a long quest and its strength multiplier (3) makes this a very difficult quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in over 4 weeks. The very high difficulty means missed Dailies will cause higher amounts of damage to the group; having a Healer in the party is highly recommended.
After much effort, your party has discovered Vice's lair. The hulking monster eyes your party with distaste. As shadows swirl around you, a voice whispers through your head, "More foolish citizens of Habitica come to stop me? Cute. You'd have been wise not to come." The scaly titan rears back its head and prepares to attack. This is your chance! Give it everything you've got and defeat Vice once and for all!
Defeat Vice, the Shadow Wyrm.
