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.

  • This is the final quest in the Delera's Tomb story arc.
  • It is not obvious after completing this quest, but to complete the Quest line, go to the right side door of Delera's Tomb, enter and speak with Delera.

Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!

Objectives

  • Slay Dreadlord Giddeon
  • (Optional) Slay Zan'Glaen +10% Bonus.( ♣198 ♦350 ♥370 ♠390 )

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed, some undisarmable)
  • 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 box is on the east wall just before the trap.
  • Poison trap down the next corridor, where it expands; no box, but easily avoidable.
  • Cold trap further down the corridor, at the corner; control box is on the east wall past the trap.
  • Poison trap just beyond; control box is on the east wall past the trap.
  • Western Wing
    • The first large room contains a large spike trap; control box 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 box is on the south face of the first pillar.
  • Eastern Wing
    • Spike and dart traps before the door at the end of the corridor; no control boxes, but 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 twice, then speak to Delera. When you speak to Hargo the second time, you will have to option to pay him 1,000 platinum or Bluff him to advance the quest (requires Bluff skill of 3). When speaking to Delera, ensure your entire party is with you in the dungeon (or have already completed this step), then walk all the way up to her to ensure that the quest completes, then speak with her. This is important because this short part actually grants favor.
  • 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.
  • 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 quick, 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 deathward or greater heroism buffs are recommended to prevent this. If neither are available, an item with deathblock will work also.
  • There is just one Shrine, so be wise with your buffs.
  • 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.

  • Tamper bonus: 3 or more traps disarmed +10% Bonus.( ♣198 ♦350 ♥370 ♠390 )
  • Ingenious Debilitation bonus: 4 or more traps disarmed +30% Bonus.( ♣594 ♦1,050 ♥1,110 ♠1,170 )
