Overview

Slay the witch-doctor Zulkash in his fane, deep within Splinterskull, and destroy his totem of power.

  • Make your way through the outer fortress once again, this time on your way to kill the witch-doctor Zulkash.
  • This is the seventh in the Assault on Splinterskull quest chain given by Ungurz.

Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!

Objectives

  • Make your way to Splinterskull's inner stronghold
  • (Optional) Slay 9 Glass Spiders — Bonus (10%): Heroic( ♣69 ♦122 ♥129 ♠137 )

What to Expect

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Spike trap in the western storeroom, in the corner beyond the door; box is on the western wall
  • Electrical trap in the small room off the throne room; box is just inside the door on the north wall
  • Blade trap (on both walls) down the corridor past the second shrine; box is on the north wall
  • Spinning blade trap further down the corridor; box is on the south wall immediately after the blade trap

Tips and Misc

  • This should be familiar by now... same as before, except with glass spiders instead of hobgoblin avengers. Glass spiders can be found in the hallway after the central chamber, in the spider caves around the loop, and in the passage to the inner stronghold. Be careful fighting around the no-longer-locked door to the inner stronghold, if you're still going after bonuses; if you pass the threshold going after a glass spider, you'll complete the quest.
  • Once again, if you leave before completing the second (inner fortress) portion of this set, you'll have to go through this quest again. Like The Stronghold Key, this makes this quest a popular place to farm collectables, especially the valuable Lightning-Split Soarwood.
  • You don't receive favor until after completing the next quest.
