Overview

Droaam army is attacking the walls of Stormreach. The city's defenders are holding their own, but nothing has been heard from the Summerfield district for some time.

What to Expect

  • Spawning/respawning monsters
  • Protect an NPC (optional: Captain Marcus)
  • Randomly placed NPCs (optional: Wounded Stormreach Guards)

Known Traps

Trap DCs
Spot and Search DCs

  • Two traps in two of the houses (Carlo's Bookshop, Basement Apartment) in the district. Trap control panels are at some easy-to-overlook places at the top of cabinets.

Tips and Misc

Once inside the quest, go right, up the ramp to the upper walkways, and find and speak with Captain Markus there.

  • There are several houses that can be entered (marked on your in-game map). They contain several secret doors and hidden passages, one that is easy to overlook is opened by a rune inside of a trapped fireplace.
  • Wounded Guards can be found inside of houses and on the roofs of some buildings, it can be tricky finding them all if you don't search methodically. There is a total of 16, but only 15 are needed to complete the 3 optionals.
  • You don't have to go to the outer region of the town to complete the Quest, you can return after killing 20 Droaam.
  • As soon as you leave the sally port back into town and flip the lever, several monsters will spawn. The Boss, General Tagherist, will spawn right after that.
  • Most likely due to the large amount of environmental effects (fires, smoke, etc), some people have experienced some unusual (although usually not gamebreaking) amounts of lag in this quest.

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 33 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣187 ♦327 ♥341 ♠356 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 67 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣281 ♦490 ♥512 ♠533 )
  • Conquest bonus: 100 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣469 ♦817 ♥853 ♠889 )
