Quest Log[edit | edit source]
|The last part of the ritual involves the ashes of an ancient priest, Archon Barthollem. The Archon had been buried underneath Fort Ikon to the north. Unfortunately the fanatical Kymon's Chosen have declared the ashes sacred and are defending them with their lives. Travel to Fort Ikon and destroy anything that stands in your way. Reclaim the ashes for the Order of Death's Vigil.
|With the Kymon's Chosen guardian vanquished, claim the Ashes and deliver them to the Keeper of Tomes back at Sorrow's Bastion.
Dialogue[edit | edit source]
(Before accepting the quest)
The Keeper of Tomes
Master Varuuk speaks highly of your contributions. The Order values the Legion's assistance, and yours.
- Underneath Fort Ikon to the north, there is a crypt dedicated to an ancient faith. Therein lies the Tomb of Archon Barthollem, a once powerful priest. The Archon was cremated upon death, his ashes stored within a sacred urn. In order to bring back Malkadarr, we must gather these ashes. They will serve as the core of his revenant body.
- Unfortunately, Kymon's Chosen have already moved in on the crypt, declaring its contents sacred to their misguided faith.
- We will have to take the ashes from them by force.
- The Order is already advancing on the crypt as we speak. I need you to spearhead the attack. Wipe them out and claim the ashes for the Order!
- I will gather the ashes.
- I will not take part in this slaughter.
(After gathering the Ashes)
The Keeper of Tomes
Have you vanquished our foes and claimed the ashes?
Yes, I have them here. (Completes quest)
Excellent! With these ashes, Malkadarr shall once again take form in the physical realm.
I hope many Chosen died trying to stop you from claiming them.
Can we perform the ritual now? (Leads to the quest Service Beyond Death)
They were of no consequence.
They fought fanatically to defend them.
