The Stormreaver Fresco

From DDO wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The Stormreaver Fresco is the 3rd quest in The Sharn Syndicate story arcIcon tooltip.pngStory arcs  are chains of quests that make up a story line.
Completing everything in a story arc often yields a nice reward.
The first five quests can be completed in any order to unlock Come Out and Slay.
Stand Your Ground • Dirty Laundry • The Stormreaver Fresco • The Bookbinder Rescue • Repossession • Come Out and Slay

House Kundarak pays the Stormreach Guard to respond to emergencies at Lordsmarch Bank. Some question the wisdom of this, given the city guard's dubious reputation.

What to Expect

Tips and Misc

  • To escape the vault, you need to destroy two Refined Cannith Crystals. These require immense damage to destroy, and two Iron Sentinels continually spawn while you do so. They're particularly vulnerable to Force and Sonic weapons.
  • If you decide to loot the deposit boxes, that optional isn't automatically listed as having failed. The stuff inside them is worthless junk (you can't even vendor it); however, one box will contain a portal to another vault, which contains another Refined Cannith Crystal and the Vault Guardian (a huge Iron Defender); destroying this crystal lowers a barrier to a room containing several deposit boxes. The Vault Guardian doesn't awaken until the crystal is attacked.
  • When you open one of these deposit boxes, they all open, revealing several dwarf zombies, including the optional Vanya Amanatu.
    • The other boxes in this vault contain some very odd stuff, including Infernal runes, a ship's anchor, a pickaxe, a tiny Gargoyle and Clay Golem, and the skeleton of an Angel.
  • If your party doesn't contain a rogue (or doesn't want to use all the Thieves' Tools it would require), there's a lever in the main area of the bank, inside the middle pit, which will unlock all the deposit boxes; once you complete the quest (by deactivating the alarm) a forcefield goes up over that teller pit. Even if you pull it first, you can't open any deposit boxes after completing the quest.
  • Once you shut off the alarm, (note: you must use the levers on both sides of the room to disable the alarm) the guards ignore you; apparently, House Kundarak only pays them to kill thieves while the alarm is triggered.
  • Of interesting note is that the optional slaying of Vanya and the Guardian add up to the same bonus XP as leaving the deposit boxes alone, and you can't do both sets.
    • On Elite (RP-1), the Slaying adds up to a higher XP bonus than the Deposit Boxes.
  • The deposit boxes can be unlocked with a Modified roll of 11 on Elite.

Bonus XP

  • Devious bonus: 2 or fewer monsters killed +7% Bonus.( ♣31 ♦56 ♥59 ♠63 )
  • Aggression bonus: 9 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣44 ♦79 ♥85 ♠90 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 17 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣67 ♦119 ♥127 ♠135 )
  • Conquest bonus: 25 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣111 ♦198 ♥212 ♠225 )
Notes: Conquest can be achieved by killing enough Iron Sentinel respawns within the Vault.
