Overview

Wayfinder Dael has asked you to retrieve the Seal of Shan-To-Kor. She believes the leader of the Cloven-Jaw Hobgoblins knows of its whereabouts.

To reach the Cloven-Jaw Tribe, you must first enter the Steam Tunnels from the Marketplace.

Somewhere in the depths of these tunnels is a Kobolds' Blockade. That is the path to the Caverns of Shaagh, home of the Cloven-Jaw Hobgoblins.

Defeat their leader, Hetman Shaagh, and retrieve anything that might reveal how to enter the Halls of Shan-To-Kor.

What to Expect

Tips and Misc

  • You can enter this quest either directly from the previous one, or by returning to the Kobold's Blockade.
  • All hobgoblins count towards the slayer optional, not just the guards.
  • The first witch doctor can be found up the northern passage over the bridge near the start.
  • The second one is down the western passage opened by the lever in the trench.
  • The third one is in Hetman Shaagh's abode, at the very end.
  • The first ogre is in the northern lobe of the southern cavern containing the River Gate Key.
  • The second one is south of the river gate.
  • The third one is around the northern loop, guarding the third chest.
  • The first large earth elemental is in the western lobe of the southern cavern containing the River Gate Key. The key is in a chest inside the left alcove at the 'T' intersection.
  • The second elemental is past the river gate; follow the river to the end.
  • Once you get to the hobgoblin village, there will be lots of kobold slaves running around. They won't try to attack you, and you can converse (such as it is) with them.
  • In the northern part of the first level of the village is a chest; this is where Greezix used to give his optional quest, The Sacred Helm.
  • Watch for the sparkly mushrooms taking the northern loop around the village (towards the third chest) - they can poison you if you step on them.
  • When you enter Hetman Shaagh's abode, be ready for a big fight. Not only is he and the third witch doctor there, but so are several other hobgoblins, and several wolves in dens to the east and west. The doorway behind you will automatically close for a minute with no way to open it from the inside.
  • Hetman Shaagh's Notes can be destroyed at any point after completing this quest.
