The Fae are ancestors to the High Elves. Having kept their society hidden away from lesser beings, they have begun to grant a few High Elves the power to join their race. The change from High Elf to Fae is one of magic and can only be accomplished through completing a rigorous quest.
Those who dare to take this journey, be warned, you will never be the same again.

The Fae ascension quest is relatively simple (compared to Demon) - you just have to form a group capable of killing the Unmaker in The Unravelling. The Unmaker is found at the end of a short maze e/w of Mother Weaver. The mob only takes damage from High Elves, and will automatically kill any non-hie which attempt to enter its room. A group of 6 casters is usually sufficient, though additional help will be needed to get there. The mobs in the maze before Unmaker also detonate gear, but the Unmaker itself does not. The Unmaker will drop one item which must be in inventory when troika is completed to ascend to Fae. This means that each kill of the Unmaker enables one character to become Fae.
The Unravelling maze has random exits, but the maze isn't too deep (4-5 rooms?) before you reach the Unmaker. Both the east and west exits from Mother Weaver lead to the first room of the maze. After that you can't go back to her room, so make sure your group is well regenned before leaving the safe room. In each subsequent room there's only one correct direction to proceed.
