Acolyte Hestair of House Jorasco is worried about a spate of nocturnal disappearances in her area of the ward. She believes the culprits are not the undead of Delera's Tomb, but wights dwelling in a much older, abandoned crypt beneath the ward. The crypt is known to Jorasco's Loremasters as the Dead Halls. Seek out the Dead Halls and eradicate these predators.

Acolyte Hestair is found in the Open Palm Inn.

Spoiler Warning: Spoiler material below this point!


  • Seek out the evil that defiles this burial crypt
  • Destroy the spectre that commands the wight's attacks
  • Destroy 15 undead to end the threat to Stormreach

What to Expect

  • Spawning/respawning monsters

Tips and Misc

  • Several sarcophagi automatically burst and spawn an undead. To get the breakables bonus, you may need to destroy several of them at a distance, before that happens. However, this may hurt your kills bonus.
  • At the end of the first hallway, to open the door hiding the lever to the next room, you have to look into the mirror on the eastern (right hand) wall.
  • In the next room, you have to stand on the altar in the center of the pool.
  • 2 Secret doors at top of stairs (one after the other on the east side). Go this way first if you want the kills/breakables/observance bonus available there. Spot and Search DCs
