A piece of Ahraatz-Ri's treasure map is located indside Garl's Tomb. Yet the Tomb now has new inhabitants - the Yuan-ti. Go to Garl's Tomb in Three-Barrel Cove and find Ahraatz-ri's treasure cache.

Spoiler Warning: Spoiler material below this point!


  • Find Ahraatz-Ri's treasure cache
  • Slay Kyrnxala the Fang
  • (Optional) Defeat Turoxaroth the Guardian — Bonus (25%): Epic( ♣2,939 ♦5,045 ♥5,192 ♠5,338 )

What to Expect

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

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Poisonous mushrooms near the entrance
  • Pressure plates at the top and bottom of the south stairs past the bridge (two each location)

Tips and Misc

  • The layout of the quest is the same as in heroic versions, but now you get to fight Yuan-ti and pirates.
    • Because of how heroic Garl's Tomb is split into two different quests, if the heroic quests are currently in your journal, you'll have to abandon them to enter this one.
  • This quest can be extremely challenging on higher difficulties, especially Reaper/Epic Elite for squishies and Warforged alike. The Yuan-Ti Shamans spam Symbol of Stunning and other stunning AoE's that make solo'ing extremely difficult, as the monster champion Yuan-Ti's will hit for around 300 to 600 Hit points (really 600 to 1200 without PRR of 50% reduction). When the Yuan-Ti Shamans are monster champions, it's extremely difficult to survive them alone, as the damage from spells after you're stunned is extremely high. Be warned!
  • Pull lever to lift the gate to the optional fight with Turoxaroth (awards a chest)
  • Again, the first shrine is behind a locked door. (Lock DCs)
  • Defeat Kyrnxala and her Yuan-ti minions to receive the key to the underwater door. The door cannot be picked.
    • If you cross the bridge until the DM starts and retreat, you can range her without her minions showing up. Note that even if you have a DOT on her that will kill her off, do NOT swim down to the door until she's dead as that will reset her HP.
  • Approaching the final treasure chest causes three waves of pirates to spawn around the chest.

Bonus XP

  • Devious bonus: 7 or fewer monsters killed +7% Bonus.( ♣-0 ♦-0 ♥-0 ♠-0 )
  • Aggression bonus: 81 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣-0 ♦-0 ♥-0 ♠-0 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 105 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣-0 ♦-0 ♥-0 ♠-0 )
  • Conquest bonus: 129 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣-0 ♦-0 ♥-0 ♠-0 )
  • Tamper bonus: 4 or more traps disarmed +10% Bonus.( ♣-0 ♦-0 ♥-0 ♠-0 )
  • Neutralization bonus: 6 or more traps disarmed +20% Bonus.( ♣-0 ♦-0 ♥-0 ♠-0 )
