  • Search for three crests, and return them to the wall slots next to the magical shield.

What to Expect

  • Spawning/respawning monsters

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Acid trap protecting a chest, 2 Trap control panels to disable same trap (one on either side of the chest); only need to disable 1.

Tips and Misc

  • Remember to use blunt weapons for skeletons and slashing weapons for zombies. Low quality Slashing/Bludgeoning weapons are provided for you in two chests before the first and second altars.
  • To complete the optional objectives, you can either kill the Sahuagin Necromancers or destroy the altars quickly to prevent the Heytons from being turned into undead. In the case of the final altar, you may be better off destroying it than trying to fight the necromancer on the other side.
  • The lever at the end of the passage behind the trapped chest is used to open up the wall connecting it to the rest of the crypt.
  • Destroying the altars counts towards the Monster kill bonus, not the destroy breakable object bonus.
  • The altars detect as evil, meaning that any abilities that do extra damage to evil creatures (such as a holy weapon or the paladin's Smite Evil ability) will allow you to destroy them more quickly.


  • Near western crypt:
    • Devourer Acolyte: What do the Sahuagin need these corpses for anyway?
    • Devourer Disciple: They're gonna get reanmiated into undead. Then the sahuagin will set 'em loose on Korthos
  • Outside main intersection:
    • Devourer Acolyte: Put your backs into it! The bodies inside won't get themselves out!
    • Devourer Acolyte: (on spotting PCs) An adventurer! The Sahuagin's plans must remain secret!


  • This quest is a rework of the Quest for the Ancient Daggers quest from the original harbor area.
  • As of Update 11, the quest has received a complete revamp, with the instance being redesigned and retextured. Unlike the previous versions of the quest, which mainly had you fighting spiders as well as undead and Sahuagin Adepts, you will be opposing the cultists of the Devourer for the first time as they attempt to turn the bodies of the Heyton family into an undead army against Korthos.
  • At least one of the Heytons is cited in Treasure of Crystal Cove/Treasure Map quests.

Bonus XP

  • Discreet bonus: ~5 or fewer monsters killed +5% Bonus.( ♣9 ♦16 ♥17 ♠18 )
  • Aggression bonus: 17 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣19 ♦31 ♥33 ♠36 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 21 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣28 ♦47 ♥50 ♠53 )
  • Conquest bonus: 26 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣47 ♦78 ♥84 ♠89 )
  • Tamper bonus: 1 or more trap disarmed +10% Bonus.( ♣19 ♦31 ♥33 ♠36 )
  • Mischief bonus: 15 or more breakables smashed +8% Bonus.( ♣15 ♦25 ♥27 ♠28 )
  • Vandal bonus: 20 or more breakables smashed +10% Bonus.( ♣19 ♦31 ♥33 ♠36 )
Notes: U11 update of this quest caused a couple bonus XP issues:
  • Ransack is no longer possible. There are only 18 breakables.
  • In order to get conquest you will have to fail at least one of the Optionals, to get an extra kill, which overall is a loss of XP.


  • Chests: 4
    • 1 at the southeast intersection
    • 1 at the northeast intersection
    • 1 trapped after the northwest intersection
    • 1 at the end
