From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A thick layer of dust and cobwebs covers the floor and walls of the excavation. It seems less like a new project than one recently resumed.

What to Expect

Tips and Misc

  • No piking - all party members must be present at the end to finish the quest.
    • Derward: "Before we can continue, we must make sure everyone can make it safely to this point."
    • Derward will say the same thing if 30 monsters have not yet been killed. Everyone must gather at Derward after that quota is met.
  • Useful elemental buffs:
    • Acid
    • Fire
  • You do not need to explore the whole map - there are more than enough enemies to complete the quest if you follow the path straight down to Derward (by pushing "left" at every intersection).
  • There are several glass spiders and glass spider queens - if not dealt with, they can quickly raise the alert level on you with their hatched eggs.
  • The western portion of the map, beyond Derward, is blocked off (for the this quest).

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 26 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣44 ♦78 ♥82 ♠86 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 34 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣67 ♦117 ♥123 ♠129 )
  • Conquest bonus: 41 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣111 ♦195 ♥205 ♠215 )
Notes: To get the Onslaught or Conquest bonus, you'll need to explore the side caverns as well, and kill virtually everything in the quest.


  • Chests: None
  • Collectables: None
  • NPC rewards: None, until after completing the third quest in the Western Excavation.
