An ancient Cannith Crystal is all that prevents Korthos from being encased in ice. Go to Korthos Hall, in the Korthos Village next to the dock, and protect it from the Devourer cultists.

Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!


  • Defeat all the Cultists (15 total)

What to Expect

  • Protect a quest item (mandatory: The Cannith Crystal)

Tips and Misc

  • This quest is a rework of the A Matter of Protection quest from the original harbor area.
  • It is essentially a timed quest; the timer does not start until you open the door and enter the inner room, then, after a brief pause, you must defend against waves of 1-3 attackers for just over 2 minutes.
  • Non-melee characters, or any who find the combat too difficult, might want to stand away from the crystal to reduce the opponents faced at any one time.
  • Hirelings can be a big help in this quest, especially melee types (such as Byron Scoutsword).
  • If you (or a hireling) has a Summon Monster spell, you can use the pets to engage the cultists before they rush to the crystal. (From the Korthos Hirling Vendor, the sorcerer Elizabeth Cinder is your only choice; if you go to the Harbor Hirling Vendor, there are several others.)
  • It’s worth it to complete this quest at least twice so you can pick up both Axe Bane and Spear Bane. Because they give you damage resistance, they’re particularly useful at low levels when you’re low on hit points. Equip them in a hotbar, pay attention to the type of damage dealt by enemies and swap them out when needed.
  • Next to the entrance is a painting of Korthos that you can click on.
  • Dren Ral - Rare Red named Sahuagin caster, may appear only on Hard and Elite difficulties
