  • Speak to the Keeper of Tomes

Guide[edit | edit source]

Initiating the quest unlocks the Chamber of Souls, the sealed section of the Bastion of the Order. On entering the area and speaking to the npc within, several waves of undead will appear which the player will need to defeat. This includes the shade of Noveria Stormfire, previously slain in the A Catalyst quest.

After the last wave the ritual will come to an end and Malkadarr will appear outside the Chamber. Speak to the Keeper of Tomes for the reward.

The Keeper will then offer the next quest, The Search for Uroboruuk, once the player has reached Honored faction staus with the Order.

Quest Log[edit | edit source]

Quest log
You have gathered all the necessary materials for Malkadarr's resurrection. Often times, malignant spirits will gather around such a ritual, making it dangerous for the participants, so the Keeper of Tomes wishes for you to watch over the ritual at Sorrow's Bastion while the necromancers perform the Rite of Resurrection.

Objectives:

  • Assist in the resurrection of Malkadarr
The ritual was a success and Malkadarr walks Cairn once again. Speak to the Keeper of Tomes at Sorrow's Bastion of your success.

Objectives:

  • Speak to the Keeper of Tomes

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

(Before accepting the quest)
The Keeper of Tomes
We now have everything we need to perform the Rite of Resurrection. Your loyalty and assistance have earned you the right to see Malkadarr return to this world.

Do you wish to join us?
Dialogue icon more.png What does this ritual entail?

The ritual will be dangerous, of that I can assure you. Malignant spirits will be drawn to it like moths to the flame. I need you to dispatch anything that tries to interfere.
Join us at the Chamber of Souls, its doors have been unlocked to you. Keep the chamber clear of spirits so that Malkadarr can find his way back to us.
Dialogue icon accept quest.png I will assist you in the ritual.
Dialogue icon decline quest.png I will have no part in this.
Dialogue icon more.png What happens if I fail?
Then we risk allowing another to enter Malkadarr's vessel.
Should that happen, we will be forced to destroy it, and Malkadarr will be forever lost to us.
Do not fail us.
Dialogue icon accept quest.png I will assist you in the ritual.
Dialogue icon decline quest.png I will have no part in this.

Dialogue icon end.png I'm afraid not.


(Talking to the Keeper of Tomes before finishing the ritual)
The Keeper of Tomes
Please head over to the Chamber of Souls.

Your assistance is required.
Dialogue icon more.png Where should I go?

The Chamber of Souls is right here in our sanctum. Join the ritual and secure Malkadarr's soul from beyond!
Dialogue icon end.png I will go there now.

Dialogue icon end.png I will.


(Talking to Soulkeeper Kaandris before starting the ritual)
Soulkeeper Kaandris
Everything is in place.

The ritual will require my complete attention, so it falls on you to keep the dead contained while I search for Malkadarr. I will be shielded from their presence, but should any of the spirits remain when the ritual is finished, the results could be disastrous.

Are you ready to begin?
Dialogue icon more.png What do I have to do?

The ritual will draw spirits to itself like a beacon in the darkness. Make sure that whatever comes through the veil is not around for long.
You must keep the room clear so that it is Malkadarr we bring back, and not some wayward soul.
Dialogue icon end.png I am ready. (Begin Ritual)
Dialogue icon end.png I'm not ready to begin yet.

Dialogue icon end.png I am ready. (Begin Ritual)
Dialogue icon end.png I'm not ready to begin yet.


(Talking to Soulkeeper Kaandris after finishing the ritual)
Soulkeeper Kaandris
You have done the Order a great service.
Dialogue icon more.png What of Malkadarr?

He shall resume his duties under the Keeper of Tomes, his knowledge preserved for future generations.
Dialogue icon end.png Farewell.

Dialogue icon end.png You're welcome.


(Talking to Malkadarr, Champion of Death's Vigil after finishing the ritual)
Malkadarr
So, it is you I must thank for my resurrection?
Dialogue icon more.png So what happens now?

That is for the Keeper to decide. I am hers to command.
Dialogue icon more.png Are you her slave?
A strong way to put it, but in a sense.
Whatever the Keeper wishes shall be done.
Dialogue icon more.png Why would you agree to this?
To gain access to the innermost secrets of Necromancy, I had to agree to this binding, so that all I learn is not lost should I perish.
It was a price worth paying; an honor, not a curse.
Dialogue icon more.png Will you obey me?
*Malkadarr cackles*
You may have participated in my return, but you are not the one who performed the binding.
Dialogue icon end.png I see.
Dialogue icon end.png A steep price for knowledge.
Dialogue icon end.png Sounds like a terrible fate.
Dialogue icon end.png I shall speak to her then.

Dialogue icon end.png Welcome back, Malkadarr.


(Talking to the Keeper of Tomes after finishing the ritual)
The Keeper of Tomes
Malkadarr once again walks among us.

You have done well.
Dialogue icon more.png The ritual is complete, the spirits are banished. (Completes quest)

Indeed, the Rite of Resurrection was a success and our brave Malkadarr is once again able to serve me and the Order.
Dialogue icon more.png Malkadarr has to serve you?
His continued existence is tied to my will. For as long as I demand it, he shall serve his duties.
Dialogue icon more.png That seems wrong.
Is it so wrong to sacrifice yourself wholly in the name of a greater cause? Malkadarr knew what was at stake when he joined the first circle and learned its secrets.
His knowledge must be preserved, for the good of the Order.
Dialogue icon more.png Do you require anything else? (Leads to the quest The Search for Uroboruuk)
Dialogue icon end.png Seems like a horrible fate.
Dialogue icon end.png I suppose that makes sense.
Dialogue icon more.png Do you require anything else? (Leads to the quest The Search for Uroboruuk)
Dialogue icon more.png Do you require anything else? (Leads to the quest The Search for Uroboruuk)
Dialogue icon end.png May he serve you well.
