Gates of Discord
Smith Rondo Event and Access to Kod'Taz
To access Kod'Taz you need either:
a) Hail the spectral memory of Smith Rondo, or
b) do the four sewer trials, as well as Vext and Tipt. All six instances are requested in Barindu.
Once you completed either path, zone into Kod'Taz from Natimbi to complete the flag. After this you will also be able to zone into Kod'Taz from Yxtta.
You need to do step 1 of the Breakdown in Communications quest in order to start this event.
The four NPCs that drop the items to trigger the event are static spawns with a respawn time of 45 minutes.
Defeat Smith Rondo and hail his spectral memory. This grants the flags for the four Sewers, Vxed and Tipt. This means you are directly flagged for Kod Taz and can skip Vxed and Tipt.
Access to Qvic, Prayer Grounds of Calling
To access Qvic you need access to Kod'Taz, and the two quests item "Sliver of the High Temple" and "Fragment of the High Temple".
Once in possession of both items, you can zone into Qvic from within Kod'Taz. After that, you can talk to Madronoa for direct access to Qvic from Natimbi.
Sliver of the High Temple
Sliver of the High Temple is dropped by the chests in the Ikkinz 4 raid after defeating the final boss. In order to be able to request this raid instance, a series of quests in Kod'Taz need to be done as well as the Ikkinz group instances 1-3 and the Ikkinz raid instances 1-3. Please refer to the link at the top of the page if you want to do take this path and need guidance. If you prefer to spend no or minimal time with the Kod'Taz quests and Ikkinz trials, there are three shortcuts available to retrieve the Sliver of the High Temple, the latter two of which are EQ-Might specific:
Ask another player who has completed the Ikkinz progression and is in possession of the "Icon of the Altar" to join your raid and request an Ikkinz 4 raid instance. Complete the raid trial and loot the "Sliver of the High Temple". This allows you to skip all of the ikkinz group and raid trails and all of Kod'Taz and Ikkinz' progression quests.
Defeat the three Primals in Yxtta to spawn the Primal Hynid Warbeast. Defeat the beast to spawn the Primal Ukun Warhound. The Warhound drops six "Sliver of the High Temple" at a time.
Alternatively, you can buy the "Sliver of the High Temple" from Adrienne in Plane of Knowledge for Tokens of Legendary Might.
Once in possession of the "Sliver of the High Temple" hand it to Tublik Narwethar. He will hand you back an alternate version of the item.
Fragment of the High Temple
"Fragment of the High Temple" is dropped by the chests of Vrex Barxt Qurat, the final boss in Uqua. If you prefer to skip Uqua, you can buy the "Fragment of the High Temple" from Adrienne in Plane of Knowledge for Tokens of Legendary Might.
Intuk'ta is an instance, which is accessible through Qvic. Fight your way through the tunnels towards Aganetti the Keeper - he offers the instances for Intuk'ta. (Unlike on live, Cynosure Kvanjji may be up and you can still request the instance.)
Hail the Ghost of Aganetti by the entrance to Intuk'ta to unlock direct access to this location through Chuck in Plane of Knowledge.
Defeat Noqfiel, the final boss of Intuk'ta to grant the third piece which is needed to make the Cipher of Txevu (hand-in quest in Abysmal Sea), which grants access to Txevu.
Txevu and Tacvi
Breakdown in Communications
You can acquire the Dirty Green Gemstone from Adrienne for 3 Tokens of Legendary Might. (Make sure you get the correct one for your class.)
L’diava Rexxen in Abysmal Sea accepts you handing in Xounii’s Journal Page 1 without being flagged for it. This means you need to do step 1 and then can jump to step 114 at http://www.bonzz.com/bic.htm.
Tradeskills are required for Progression in Gates of Discord.
You should have a priest with Tailoring 100 for the Kod'Taz quest line and the Ikkinz raids.
You should have a caster or priest with Research 100 for the Ikkinz 2 and 4 raids.
You should have a character with Blacksmithing 210. Blacksmithing is required to make the Icon of Altar, which is the key for Ikkinz raid 4. There are mulitple combines required. They can be successful with a lower skill, but the ingredients are very costly.
It is helpful to have a high Alcohol Tolerance when doing the Uqua raid.
Blacksmithing and Tailoring skill 141 (241 on live) are required to make the Abysmal Armor. (141 can also be reached with a lower skill and a 15% skill modifier item, such as the gloves from blob 1 in VT.) However, Meldstones and the crafted items are tradable. Thus, you can ask other players to do the combines for you.
There are various cross-zone and in-zone teleports available, some of which have to be unlocked.

Soul Essence of Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk
Obtain Cipher of Txevu through this quest to gain access to Txevu.
Defeat Ixt Hsek Syat in the gladiator pit event and loot Polished Stone Key. (The Polished Stone Key will allow you to get direct teleports to Txevu from Chuck in Plane of Knowledge.)
Defeat High Priest Nkosi Bakari and loot Jade Inlaid Key.
Optional: Gather Huvul bane weapons from the four named in Qvic: Zun`Hexxt Pvin Nki, Zun`Pixtt Llan Kvish, Zun`Pixtt Invi Mal, Zun`Hexxt Jkak Miq. Note: ZMTZ can only be damaged by pets, unresistable damage (e.g. Berserker's Rage Volly or Rangers Hail or Arrow) and Huvul bane weapons. Note: Huvul bane weapons are EQ Might server-specific, you won't find them nor the NPCs which drop them on any other website.
Optional: Do a practice run in open-world Txevu of the Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk event.
Request a Txevu instance from Chuck in Plane of Knowledge of mode "Normal" or higher. This instance expires after 5 hours and has a lockout of 3 days, regardless of success.
Defeat Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk. His treasure chest (only available in mode Normal or higher) drops two Soul Essences of Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk.
Give the Soul Essence to Sir Daniel in Plane of Knowledge to receive a flag. No worries, you get it back, since it's also a decent augmentation.
Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk is immune to melee damage and spell damage. He can be damage by pets, irresistable attacks and bane weapons. He casts Wanton Destruction, an AoE curse with a mana drain over time. This should be cured either with two casts of Radiant Cure or a single cast of Remove Greater Curse. E.g. by adding the following line to your E3, and replace "Lisa" with name of your character you want to have cured.
If you cannot defeat Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk in an instance of mode Normal (which corresponds to 12 level 66 characters), you may want to team up with someone and to defeat him and gain access to Tacvi. Then gear up in Tacvi, gather more bane weapons from Qvic and come back to Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk afterwards.
Tunat`Muram Cuu Vauax
Once in possession of Zun'Muram's Signet of Command, request an instance for Tacvi from Hamari Nedu at zone line of Txevu. This instance is not tied to Might and you can bring any force you like.
Defeat Tunat`Muram Cuu Vauax and hail Spirit of Tunat to receive a flag.
