The heavy rains of the past weeks forced a spider swarm to seek shelter in the Jorn Family Crypt. Poor Berne is deathly afraid of spiders and is too scared to enter the tomb. It's been days since he could pay his respects and he fears reprisals from his ancestors. Enter the Jorn Family Crypt in the Stormreach Harbor and clean it out!

Spoiler Warning: Spoiler material below this point!


  • Clear the Eastern Wing (10 spiders total)
  • Clear the Northern Wing (10 spiders total)
  • Clear the Southern Wing (10 spiders total)
  • Slay Brown Spider Queen
  • (Failure) Break fewer than 10 sarcophagi

What to Expect

  • Spawning/respawning monsters
  • Quest failure (if more than 9 sarcophagi are destroyed)

Tips and Misc

  • Make sure to stand clear of the sarcophagi when fighting the spiders. You can break them accidentally, as can the spiders.
  • Be very careful when using two-handed weapons.
  • There are two switches that need to be activated, in the northwest and southwest corners of the map. Each lever will spawn the final five spiders for its respective wing.
  • Each wing has 10 spiders, plus the spider queen, thus requiring and guaranteeing the conquest bonus
  • Even if you don't break a single sarcophagus, Berne's dialogue suggests that you have, as you're covered in dust and there's cleaning up to do.
  • After you finish the quest, you can run around destroying all the sarcophagi if you wish; you'll get a quest failure notice after the tenth, but it will still count as completed.

Bonus XP

  • Onslaught bonus: 21 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣26 ♦-0 ♥-0 ♠-0 )
