Deathshadow, a slain necromancer, has returned from the grave as the wraith called Deathshade. He's amassing an army of undead to avenge his demise at the hands of Stormreach's heroes. You must prevent him from gaining entry to Delera's Graveyard!

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


  • Slay Deathshade
  • Do not allow the gate to be destroyed
  • Light the four funeral pyres
  • (Optional) Slay Alexi Drange — Bonus (20%): Heroic( ♣149 ♦260 ♥272 ♠284 )
  • (Optional) Slay Guard Jobari — Bonus (20%): Heroic( ♣149 ♦260 ♥272 ♠284 )
  • (Optional) Slay Lonni Renaldo — Bonus (20%): Heroic( ♣149 ♦260 ♥272 ♠284 )
  • (Optional) Slay Qhumok — Bonus (20%): Heroic( ♣149 ♦260 ♥272 ♠284 )

What to Expect

  • Spawning/respawning monsters
  • Quest failure (if the gate is destroyed)
  • Protect a quest item (mandatory: the gate)
  • Requires extra player(s)/hireling(s) (mandatory: someone to defend the gate, someone to light the pyres, someone to protect the player that lights the pyres)

Tips and Misc

  • It takes 30 seconds to light a funeral pyre, making the player susceptible to being interrupted while lighting it.
    • As the Pyre is being lit, wraiths and skeletons will spawn.
    • Each pyre stands in a square of rocks. Touching the rock square once activates the spawns. If you kill all the mobs next to a pyre without touching the rocks, and then light the pyre still without touching rocks, no more mobs will respawn at that pyre ensuring you won't be interrupted.
  • There are three roles that need to be filled here: gate defender, pyre activator, and defender of the pyre activator.
    • The Pyre Lighter can light the pyre in stealth mode, without breaking stealth. Invisibility would also work.
  • It is possible to solo this quest with a hireling. This requires some speed and micromanagement on your part. Use a Wizard or Sorcerer hireling (preferably one with Firewall) to guard the gate. Keep them in Aggressive Stance and Hold Ground. The Gate Swarmers go directly for the gate and completely ignore attackers, so the hireling can nuke as much as they want. Go to each pyre, kill all the spawns, and light them in stealth mode. You'll want to run back after each pyre though to give your hireling a hand. Once Deathshade appears, you can just kill him and the quest will be over!
  • The square of rocks with the end chests counts like a Pyre square. Stepping on it the first time will spawn some undead.
  • Gate Swarmers will continue to spawn even after the quest is completed.
  • The entrance gate is locked upon entry. You must recall to exit the quest.

Bonus XP

  • Devious bonus: 81 or fewer monsters killed +7% Bonus.( ♣52 ♦91 ♥95 ♠99 )


  • Chests: 2
    • 2 at the end
  • NPC rewards: Random item
