Return to the Fire Caves and destroy the mephits and elementals that infest them. The road to the caves entrance winds through orc territory, but perhaps there is a safer path around the orcs.

Spoiler Warning: Spoiler material below this point!


  • Destroy the elementals Mak-Murug summoned (3 total)
  • (Optional) Destroy 20 Fire Mephits — Bonus (10%): Heroic( ♣123 ♦220 ♥235 ♠250 )

Tips and Misc

  • You must complete The Stones Run Red before Idas will give you this quest.
  • The good news is that it's now too hot for any ogres or oozes. The bad news is that if you don't have cold-damage weapons and fire resists, you will be very sad. It's worth investing in a cold-damage weapon for this, and even more worth investing in a fire-resist item.
  • The first fire elemental is by the north lever in the first lava room; the second elemental is just before where the second altar was; and the third spawns when you approach where the third altar was.
  • Again, the first set of shrines is unlocked, while the second set is locked. (Lock DCs)
  • And again, the only things in the far southern lobe, up all the ledges, are the exit rope and the mushroom.

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 10 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣123 ♦220 ♥235 ♠250 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 20 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣185 ♦330 ♥353 ♠375 )
  • Conquest bonus: 30 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣308 ♦550 ♥588 ♠625 )
