  • Talk to Zalsuhm (inside Muckvix's Junk Shop H-9) with the desired Nyzul Isle weapon equipped for a cutscene.
  • To complete this quest you must unlock your mythic weapon. To do this, you must accumulate the required number of Weapon Skill Points on your Vigil Weapon.
    • Regardless of Nyzul Isle Investigation progress, only 250 Weapon Skill Points are needed to complete any Unlocking a Myth quest as of July 2014.
  • Once you have acquired enough Weapon Skill Points, your new Weapon Skill will become available under your list of Weapon Skills, but only while your Nyzul Isle weapon still equipped.
  • Trade your unlocked weapon to Zalsuhm. This unlocks your new Weapon Skill for use with any weapon.


  • If you trade your weapon to Zalsuhm before it is unlocked, he will give you a rough gauge on how far along you have progressed. As you get closer to unlocking the message, the messages he gives you will indicate your progress:
    • "I sense only a mote of energy present. You still have a long way to go."
    • "I can feel a marked increase in energy compared to when I first held it. Keep up the good work."
    • "The energy is threatening to burst forth. It won't be long now."
    • "You've done it! Energy is overflowing as though the floodgates have burst open!"
