What to Expect

  • Spawning/respawning monsters

Tips and Misc

  • With Update 20, Captain Cage can be found in the northeast-most docks of the Harbor, in the former location of the ship that took you to Korthos Island (now located by the lighthouse), just south of some class trainers and just west and below the Leaky Dinghy Tavern.
  • Hobgoblin Witch Doctors are the main threats in this quest. Be prepared for their Ray of Enfeeblement debuff and fire damage with Lesser Restoration and Fire Resist potions/spells.
  • This quest has many very stealthy squads of hobgoblins that patrol around the map almost everywhere. As such there are very few safe places to go AFK for a break. Don't expect to still be alive if you AFK in the middle of the inlet. The shrines are mostly safe, but not the random one near Skartongue.
  • This quest has 3 sets of shrines, but one set doesn't always spawn. The one missing from the current map is near Skartongue. It seems to show up much less frequently on Elite difficulty.
  • There are several campsites scattered around the Inlet; each is guarded by a bugbear or two and several hobgoblins of various types.
  • The wide vista really allows ranged warriors to come into their own; it's extremely easy (if time consuming) to get close enough to target a monster, and then back off far enough to avoid triggering an attack. Stealthy AOE magickers can also have a good time. Just be sure to watch for any wandering patrols!
  • The powder kegs weigh 15 pounds each. You need to find Yaaryar's plans (at Dinks)
    before you can pick them up.
  • Dinks can be found by the northwestern shrines.
  • Stained-Tusk and 'Mad' Anne Rackham can be found by the eastern shrines.
  • Skartongue can be found at the camp to the north.
  • The torch can be easy to miss. It is on the ship, unlit and mounted on the mast immediately in front of the kegs and grate.
  • Make sure you are clear of the ship when it explodes, for obvious reasons.
  • After lighting the powder kegs on his schooner, Yaaryar will be found near the southwestern camp. If you take too long to go search for him, he and his party will start to patrol the beach.
  • Hobble may appear in the central camp (the second one going southwest from the entrance)
  • Scurvy may appear at the third camp south of the northwest shrine
  • Mutiny may appear on patrol on near southwestern camp, he generally heads towards the ship.

  • Aggression bonus: 19/32 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣84 ♦150 ♥161 ♠172 )
