In preparation for the unveiling of New Halas to the live servers, a prelude quest to lead players into the lore and background of New Halas' creation is hitting the live servers.
Entitled "A Vision of Valor" this prelude quest will initially only be given out by SOE officials and guides. According to a post by EQ2 dev Domino
on the test forums, this quest should be available now, if you can find the right person to give it to you. If you can't find yourself an SOE rep though, never fear, the quest NPCs will go live the week before the GU launch which is scheduled on or around May 25th, 2010.

and be sure to keep an eye out for those reps so you can snag the quest!
