Quest Log[edit | edit source]

Quest log
Bysmiel's web brings word of a peculiar gathering of Korvaak's zealots in the Valley of the Chosen in the Infernal Wastes to the northwest.

There are whispers of an eldritch monstrosity that was once imprisoned within the Tomb of Ariath. Vorak speculates that they intend to release this creature and use it as a weapon.

Within the tomb are three conduits said to bind the creature there. If they are broken, the beast will be unleashed.

Vorak has a rather perverse strategy to deal with this. Rather than thwarting the zealots, he suggests that you release the creature and slay it before it has a chance to recover from centuries of imprisonment. Then Korvaak's minions will have one less resource to draw upon.

Find the Tomb of Ariath in the Valley of the Chosen, destroy the conduits, release the beast and slay it before the enemy has a chance to claim it.

Objectives:

  • Destroy the Eastern Conduit
  • Destroy the Northern Conduit
  • Destroy the Western Conduit
The three conduits are destroyed, enter the heart of the Tomb of Ariath, in the Infernal Wastes, and slay the creature contained within.

Objectives:

  • Slay the Duskreaper
The Duskreaper is no more.

Return to Vorak at the Vanguard of the Three to report on your success.

Objectives:

  • Speak with Vorak at the Vanguard of the Three
