The Deal and the Demon
Yugoloth mercenaries are found throughout the fiendish planes and other dark corners of the multiverse. They are notorious for serving whichever side suits their purposes - often, the highest bidder.

Ymris the Yugoloth has proposed a deal: help him and his mercenaries assassinate the Demon Kishnaurac, and he will help you retrieve the Orb that Kishnaurac is guarding for Lolth. If you can retrieve the Orb, it will bring you one step closer to freeing the Thread of the Weave.
Go to the Realm of Ruin inside the Demonweb and meet Ymris there. You may reach the Demonweb via Eveningstar Cavern.
Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!
- Talk to Ymris the yugoloth
- Remove the Sign of Binding
- Remove the Sign of Shielding
- Remove the Sign of Vigilance
- (Optional) Let Ymris summon mercenaries (~7.5% of base XP)
- Spell Wards that do substantial fire damage, all can be disabled.
Tips and Misc
- The chest which contains the Spider-spun Caparison has been moved to the end of the quest and linked to allowing Ymris to summon his mercenaries. Previous to U17 it was near the beginning of the quest; the developers deemed this too easy.
- The Signs can either be touched to disable, which triggers a spell ward, or can be inspected closer to allow a check to be made to disable it without any problems. Binding has a UMD check. Shielding has a Str check (31 succeeded on norm). Vigilance has a concentration check (58 succeeded on norm).
- For the optional, the mercs help you kill the orange-named spider but turn on you for the boss fight at the end.
- Can be run solo in under 5 minutes making it a very fast loot and XP run. You can do the quest for loot over and over without returning to Eveningstar as long as you leave the orb alone.
