Enter Eyegouger's basement and find the warder, Haverdasher, who was sent by House Kundarak to seal a precious object within a chest.

Spoiler Warning: Spoiler material below this point!


  • Speak with the warder
  • Kill all the scorpions (8 total)
  • Tell Haverdasher it's clear and claim your reward

What to Expect

  • Spawning monsters

Tips and Misc

  • This quest is of average difficulty.
  • This is a very quick quest with usually two chests, which makes it an easy source of low amounts of cash (generally 300 gp or so, plus items, on Elite).
  • No respawns here, just 8 scorpions which burrow up out of the ground as you approach (plus Blacktail, see next). If you succeed in this quest objective, you have fulfilled the Onslaught bonus for +15%.
  • The named Night Scorpion, Blacktail, almost always spawns near the back, with the final wave. Defeating it drops a chest nearby. Blacktail does not count toward the 8 scorpions you need to kill and does not provide an optional objective.
  • At one point, the Dungeon Master's voice will announce "With a final spasm, the last scorpion collapses." This refers only to the 8 objective scorpions, and does not consider whether Blacktail is still alive and a threat.
  • Make sure you talk to Haverdasher again after you kill the scorpions and before you leave to complete the quest (and get the second chest!).
  • Update 1 changed this quest from Solo only to have all standard difficulties.

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 6 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣20 ♦36 ♥39 ♠41 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 8 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣31 ♦55 ♥58 ♠62 )


  • Chests: 2
  • 1 for killing Blacktail (Night Scorpion, almost guaranteed, has a very small chance not to spawn)
  • 1 at the end after you speak with Haverdasher a second time
