Overview

The necromancer who forced Delera's shade to do his bidding has returned to the graveyard, along with his lieutenant, Zan'glaen the Butcher. Kill Dreadlord Giddeon to prevent him from controlling Delera again.


Spoiler Warning: Spoiler material below this point!


Objectives

  • Slay Dreadlord Giddeon
  • (Optional) Slay Zan'Glaen — Bonus (10%): Heroic( ♣198 ♦350 ♥370 ♠390 ) Epic( ♣1,609 ♦2,758 ♥2,833 ♠2,909 )

What to Expect

  • Collapsible floor
  • Spawning/respawning monsters

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • There is fairly dangerous fire trap down the first corridor, between the last two pillars; control panel is on the east wall just before the trap.
  • Poison trap down the next corridor, where it expands; no control panel, but easily avoidable.
  • Cold trap further down the corridor, at the corner; control panel is on the east wall past the trap.
  • Poison trap just beyond; control panel is on the east wall past the trap.
  • Western Wing
    • The first large room contains a large spike trap; control panel is on the north wall, east of the door. Spikes don't activate until after pulling either one of the levers (either to the south or north).
    • Fire dart (does fire and bludgeon damage) trap along the hallway; control panel is on the south face of the first pillar.
  • Eastern Wing
    • Spike and dart traps before the door at the end of the corridor; control panel on the floor the near doorway, pull the third lever (nearest the door) to open the door. The other levers activate the traps
    • There is an area where the floor drops into a shallow pit with some oozes; no way to prevent this.

Tips and Misc

  • To receive this quest, you have to speak to Hargo Kimmare twice, then speak to Delera. See Return to Delera's Tomb
  • There is just one Shrine, so be wise with your buffs and spell point use.
  • In the first major room with 8 levers, you only need to pull the second one on the left to open the door to continue the quest. The other 7 will spawn skeletons.
  • Stepping on the pressure plates in the large central room will both open the associated door and spawn an undead ambush (one ambush for each plate, so one at a time if your party is not strong).
  • Minor bug: When fighting the necromancer at the end, as soon as you kill him, most of the undead in the room will die as well. Therefore, it's usually a good idea for everyone to focus on him first – however, avoid killing him too quickly, as if you kill him in under ~2 seconds, the script that kills all his undead minions will not activate.
  • Warning: This boss necromancer has the Phantasmal Killer spell, which can instantly slay a player if they fail both saves. Having either Death Ward or greater heroism buffs are recommended to prevent this. If neither are available, an item with Deathblock will work.
  • The locked chests at the end have a very low unlock DC. You can use Knock scrolls from The Marketplace vendor if you don't have another way to do unlock them; on elite you just need a roll of 10 for the right one and 14 for the left one.
  • There is a lever at the back of the room in which the end fight takes place that will open the gate to return to the rest of the dungeon, if needed.
  • To complete the Quest chain and receive the reward, speak with Delera in her Tomb after completing this quest.
