Return to Garl's Tomb, behind the waterfall along the road out of camp, and find his lost treasure for Red Tom.

Spoiler Warning: Spoiler material below this point!


  • Find the chest containing Garl the Grey's lost hoard
  • Slay Garl the Grey
  • (Optional) Destroy 19 Sarcophagi — Bonus (10%): Heroic( ♣191 ♦339 ♥359 ♠380 )

What to Expect

  • spawning/respawning monsters
  • lock (optional – door to first shrine)

Tips and Misc

  • The layout of the quest is the same as last time, but now you get to fight Blackbone Skeletons of various types instead of Troglodytes.
  • Again, the first shrine is behind a locked door. (Lock DCs)
  • As you advance down the corridor with the first sarcophagi, several will burst open in ambush. Sarcophagi destroyed this way will not count towards your breakables bonus or the optional. This can actually make the optional unachievable. If you range them instead, the ambush still appears in the same spot.
  • The key to the underwater door is dropped by a named mob on the central platform over the water. The door cannot be picked.
  • Opening the final treasure chest will cause Garl and a few wights to spawn for the final battle.

Bonus XP

  • Discreet bonus: 9 or fewer monsters killed +5% Bonus.( ♣95 ♦169 ♥180 ♠190 )
  • Aggression bonus: 31 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣191 ♦339 ♥359 ♠380 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 41 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣286 ♦508 ♥539 ♠569 )
  • Conquest bonus: 50 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣477 ♦846 ♥898 ♠949 )
