Unholy Defiler of the Hidden Hand

From DDO wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Unholy Defiler of the Hidden Hand is a Crafting device to upgrade weapons and shields from quests in Vecna Unleashed and create Minor Artifacts. It was introduced in Update 61 with the Vecna Unleashed expansion.

The Unholy Defiler of the Hidden Hand is located in Morgrave University - Upper Commons, in the rafters above Steps Obliss - to get there, jump on the barrels in the nearby tavern. It can be only seen/used if you wear Steps' Lenses of Seein' Hidden Hand Secrets. Speak to Steps Obliss to acquire the goggles (this needs to be done on a total of 14 different days on one character.)

Along with a copy of an item from Vecna Unleashed, all upgrades require all four types of Dust of Vile Darkness:
