Break into the throne room of Chief Yarkuch and slay him!

  • Make your way once more through the Outer Fortress, on your way to the final confrontation with Chief Yarkuch.
  • This is the ninth in the Assault on Splinterskull quest chain given by Ungurz.

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


  • Get to the entrance to Splinterskull's inner stronghold
  • (Optional) Slay War Master Muurj +10% Bonus.( ♣35 ♦61 ♥64 ♠68 )

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed)
  • Spawning/respawning monsters
  • Stat check (optional; STR to open a door)
  • Locked doors (optional)
  • Contains the entrance to another quest (to The Last Move: Yarkuch's Last Stand)

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Spike trap in the western storeroom, in the corner beyond the door; box is on the western wall
  • Electrical trap in the small room off the throne room; box is just inside the door on the north wall
  • Blade trap (on both walls) down the corridor past the second shrine; box is on the north wall
  • Spinning blade trap further down the corridor; box is on the south wall immediately after the blade trap

Tips and Misc

  • Rejoice, for this is your last time through the outer fortress! This time, you can face War-Master Muurj on your way. He can be found in the central chamber.
  • The door to the Inner Fortress is still open; once you pass the threshold, the quest is completed.
  • Once more, if you leave before completing the second (inner fortress) portion of this set, you'll have to go through this quest again.
  • Once again, there's no real need to go into the lever rooms or the storage rooms unless you want the trap or breakables XP bonuses.
  • You don't receive favor until after completing the next quest.
