Argin-Hiz is a zone in the Call of the Forsaken expansion. It was released on July 16, 2014 as the final zone in CotF. Argin-Hiz is a tier 2 CotF zone.

A hot ash wind is blowing from the portals that have appeared in Ethernere-Tainted West Karana and South Ro. Creatures of ash have ventured out of the portals and are roaming menacingly throughout South Ro and North Ro.

The last artifact needed to send Lady Lendiniara back to her home may be located beyond the ash portals that have appeared in these areas, and the only way to know for sure is to gather other powerful allies to your side to investigate for yourself.

Lore[edit]

See also: Call of the Forsaken lore
It is usually quite hot during the summer months around the deserts of Ro, but the heat this year has grown shockingly hotter. The patches of desert vegetation have wilted and, in certain areas, turned completely black. Recently portals appeared in Ethernere-Tainted West Karana and South Ro. Flickers of hot ash and puffs of dark smoke are said to spring forth from the portals. In South Ro, the disturbance has caused an extreme drought, and the locals have rightly taken notice. If the heat wave is not broken, the desert’s oasis will dry up and parch the regions of Ro.

The torridity isn’t the only threat, however. Reports of burned creatures venturing forth from the portal have increased as well. Initially the Freeport guards were sent to investigate. Despite their assistance, it became quickly apparent that more needed to be done. Even the great Solusek Ro has sensed the portal’s danger. He has sent an ambassador to ascertain what threat may lurk there and what connection it may have to the great sun god.

Quick to move, Lanys T’vyl has also been investigating these portals. After her initial inspection, she believes that an ancient artifact lies within the depths of the city beyond the portal. She also believes that the artifact could be the final key in returning Lady Lendiniara back to her home.

Little is known of the fiery city of Argin-Hiz or its strange inhabitants. Brave hero, you must investigate the mysterious city. If the promise of flames does not compel you, the promise of great riches will. But be warned, for all is not as it seems.

Bugs / Changes[edit]

Yes, there should have been XP and coin on the tasks. The lack thereof is a bug and is being addressed. The mob XP will also be raised. Drop rates for the various items will be increased. And several other changes will be in there too, hopefully making these tasks less onerous.
