Open the Soul Locks in Delera's Prison to remove the protections that render her spirit invulnerable to harm. Then defeat Delera's Shade.

  • Part 3 of the Delera's Tomb quest chain.
  • Be sure to speak to Derek once more after quest completion. This completes Derek's role in the quest chain, and activates another NPC in the graveyard for the last two quests in the chain.

Tips and Misc

Lock DCs

  • There are many wraiths in this quest; a weapon with Ghost Touch is recommended. Ghostly Skeletons make their appearance again as well; have a Flametouched Iron, Holy or Pure Good weapon, or continue to use the simple holy club given to you at the bestowal of an earlier quest, The Missing Party.
  • A chest is located in a stairwell near the quest's start. A player with good Jump skills may be able to reach this chest immediately. Otherwise, players should access the chest through a locked hallway BEFORE jumping down to Soul Lock #3--although a high enough Jump may allow one to return up the broken staircase.
  • The first four Soul Locks are guarded by optional Soul-Lock Guardians. All five will spawn several skeletons after being opened, while the fifth will also spawn Delera's shade; slaying it will kill any surviving skeletons.
  • Each Soul Lock has a different method to continue onward:
    • You must pull a lever near the first and third Soul Locks (before the shrines).
    • You must defeat the skeleton ambush at the second Soul Lock.
    • Simply opening the fourth Soul Lock will open the door to the fifth.
    • Slaying Delera's shade will open the final door, to the end chest and the exit.
  • There is a shrine after the first, third and fourth soul locks. You might not be able to climb back up on certain broken staircases to get back if your jump skill is too low.
