Lyvetenant Thifspar in the Marketplace needs help repelling the Devil assault on one of the Stormreach Guard barracks. If you're up for this task, then enter the Market Barracks.

  • The difficulty on Heroic levels of this quest follows a non-standard level progression:
  • Casual: Level 5
  • Normal: Level 6
  • Hard: Level 12
  • Elite: Level 18
  • The monster's CR range from level-2 (first wave) to level+2 (fifth wave, boss)
  • This quest is available on Heroic Reaper difficulty; however, as a base-level 6 quest, characters above level 10 cannot enter. This is WAI. DDO Forums
    • The monster's CR range from 14 up to 21?. Reapers are CR 21.
  • This quest does not award Delving Bonus.
  • This quest is popular not only for its difficulty (survival combat in a confined space) but for the Token of the Twelve rewards in Epic play.

Spoiler Warning: Spoiler material below this point!


  • Enter the barracks
  • Survive and defeat the devil invasion (5 waves total)
  • (Optional) Defeat the first wave — Bonus (25%): Heroic( ♣426 ♦759 ♥1,053 ♠1,347 ) Epic( ♣2,470 ♦4,257 ♥4,396 ♠4,536 )
  • (Optional) Defeat the second wave — Bonus (40%): Heroic( ♣682 ♦1,215 ♥1,684 ♠2,154 ) Epic( ♣3,952 ♦6,810 ♥7,034 ♠7,257 )
  • (Optional) Defeat the third wave — Bonus (60%): Heroic( ♣1,022 ♦1,822 ♥2,527 ♠3,232 ) Epic( ♣5,929 ♦10,216 ♥10,550 ♠10,885 )
  • (Optional) Defeat the fourth wave — Bonus (100%): Heroic( ♣1,704 ♦3,037 ♥4,211 ♠5,386 ) Epic( ♣9,881 ♦17,026 ♥17,584 ♠18,142 )

What to Expect

  • Spawning/respawning monsters

Tips and Misc

  • None of the "optionals" are at all optional. If you complete this quest you will earn the XP for every one of the "optionals" listed above.
  • When running Epic version of this quest for Tokens of the Twelve, this quest is most frequently run on Epic Normal (Level 21), as higher difficulties do not have a higher Token of the Twelve drop count.needs verification
  • On heroic elite, farming the first wave can be a good source of Mysterious Remnant (chests).
  • As you approach the door, Guard Joalam will warn you that once you go in, the door will be locked. You can't get out, and if you recall and re-enter (or use Dimension Door), the gate will be down, and you can't resume the battle. At quest completion, you are able get back in to get the chests.
    • Certain mobs (Bearded Devils, Orthons, etc.) can teleport through the front door to attack anyone who's waiting for the completion on the "wrong" side of the door.
  • The enemies get harder with each wave; don't get over-confident.
  • The first boss appears at the end of the third wave, after about 115 kills. Once this boss is slain, there is a brief pause and one chest and shrines appear (they disappear once again when the fourth wave begins).
  • The second boss appears at the end of the fourth wave, after about 160 kills. Again, once this boss is slain, there is a pause in the battle, giving you a new set of shrines and chance to grab the next chest.
  • The third boss appears at the end of the fifth wave, after about 200 total kills. Killing him completes the quest and a new set of shrines appear.
  • On Epic difficulties, the 2nd boss – Baktor, a Horned Devil, suffers from an annoying bug that causes him to teleport indefinitely over and over at a fast rate. You can fix him: Any sort of effect that normally resets aggro or AI will work. For example: Mass invisibility, Intimidate, Bluff, Diplomacy or Improved Deception can work. Mass Invisibility tends to be the most effective, as it removes everyone from his aggro list and resets his AI.
  • Also, beware of Turigulon's Pit Fiend's Super Natural Venom/Poison on Epic Elite/Reaper. On a failed Fortitude save, and roll of 1, your Constitution will drop to 0 and you will be stunned. You'll be quickly killed if solo.
  • Hirelings can be summoned at any time by standing very close to the entrance door.
  • Because of the way this quest changes, all the mobs are considered their equivalents on Heroic Normal for the Monster Manual (MM). Monsters listed on Heroic Hard and higher difficulties, if not found on other quests, will not be added to the MM count. On the other hand, since the 5th wave of Heroic Normal is composed exclusively by troglodytes, if you have troglodyte Mastery, you can see the HP of every monster in the 5th wave of every difficulty.
