Further into Nepheli’s questline, when she loses hope and becomes sad, you need to give her The Stormhawk King found in the Chapel of Anticipation.
The second condition will be to defeat the boss – Morgott, The Omen King.
The third and final condition is that Malekith, the Black Blade Boss found in the Crumbling Farum Azula, must not be dead before this point.
Once these three conditions are met, Kenneth Haight and Nephali will spawn in the throne room, but you will need to rest at the nearest site of grace for them to spawn.
