House Deneith and House Kundarak have temporarily joined forces to explore and excavate the Abandoned Keep, a settlement deep in the heart of Xen’drik that has lain abandoned for hundreds of years. But the evil that destroyed the settlement 500 years ago still awaits those foolish enough to dig deep enough below the Abandoned Keep.

This level 8 adventure zone is accessed through House Phiarlan. Talk to Jalizco Hellios, in the northern part of that enclave, near the road leading north to the Necropolis.

Note the additional quests (see below) that do NOT appear in your Adventure Compendium.

Main Quests[edit]

The Western Excavation[edit]

The Eastern Excavation[edit]

The Abandoned Excavation[edit]

The final quests, The Abandoned Excavation (aka "Southern"), requires the above two series to be completed in your quest journal. To continue, you must talk to Sal Danek again (quest giver of East series) and ask "Is there more to do here?" This opens Zaveera Halfspear's dialogue to bestowing quests.

  • Bug: Do NOT accept to repeat the Eastern or Western quests if you want to advance to third part! Accepting the quests again will require that you repeat them before continuing.

To repeat, you must talk to Sal Danek (quest giver of East series) first and ask "Is there more to do here?" to reset all 3 quest chains. West and East can be repeated individually, but you cannot get advanced to South series that way.

Farming end rewards[edit]

After you've run the chain once, you can repeat this series by running only one of the Western or Eastern quest sub-chain plus the Southern one, and earn an end-reward. To repeat just the Eastern* and Abandoned Excavation (Southern) chains, access the Quest Journal (default L key) in a public area (the tavern inside the excavation is closest) and go to the "Threnal" entry. Under Threnal, highlight the Eastern Excavation entry*, scroll to the bottom of the window and click the "Abandon" button. Talk to Sal at the Eastern excavation site and re-complete the three eastern quests. Once the three are complete (be careful to not select the "repeat quests" option with Jal), go to Sal Danek and select the "Is there more to do here?" option. He will then send you to Zaveera Halfspear to complete the southern excavation chain.

(* Dropping either the Eastern or Western also drops the Southern and allows the chain to be repeated for end-reward, but the Western is much longer, so most people prefer to drop and re-run the Eastern.)
