Thanks for the links! ...and a bump for any other newbies starting out.
I did the Mask quest last night -- the run through Droga was all the more exciting since I'm level 25 with plenty of exp (if not much gear) to lose. But after wandering around for ten minutes and re-invising once, I found the guy. I stood right on top of him and nothing agro'd me, and I was able to do the turn-in and gate safely.
Now for the ring!!
