Destroy the four Stygian Lords.




The four Stygian Lords are each at a different place in the area. Each trench has a few hidden spawns that will ambush the party. Upon entering any trench and getting near the half-way point, a large spawn of melee creatures will appear at either end of the trench and then run to the opposite side (sandwiching whoever is inside). Also, one or two Tormentor demons will spawn on the two cliffs overlooking the trench. It's recommended that the party have someone go in and trigger this spawn first before they enter the trench. This player can either just die in there and get Rebirthed from the cliff above or they can use a teleportation skill like Recall to return to their party members.

The Stygian Lords on the map are as follows:

  • A monk with a stationary group of Tormentor demons as well as a hidden spawn of the Stygian creatures that will appear upon entering the alcove he is found in.
  • An elementalist with a large hidden spawn in the alcove he is found in.
  • A mesmer with a stationary group of Tormentor creatures and a few hidden Torment Claws.
  • A necromancer with a stationary group of Tormentor creatures.

The party should pay attention to the patrols roaming near each boss, especially in the case of the elementalist, as one patrol can come from behind the party and surprise them.

After taking the reward for the quest, six Smothering Tendrils will appear and the Dreadspawn Maw will open. Make sure, before taking the reward, that the area with the large maw is clear and that all party members clear are up by the Adept of Whispers so they do not get killed by the Tendrils' special attack.

Killing the Dreadspawn Maw spawns a Stygian Chest and progresses the quest Mallyx the Unyielding. See there for a walkthrough.


Initial dialogue[edit]

Adept of Whispers
"The outer defenses are clear and many demons have been slain. Now we must seek and destroy the Stygian Lords. These four great demons are the Dreadspawn Maw's inner circle. We must slay them all to get to her. In doing so, we shall throw the demonic forces in this realm into total chaos, crippling their ability to spawn their infernal armies."
Yes Accept: "Consider them sought and destroyed."
No Decline: "I think I'd rather seek the exit to this place."
Ask Ask: "We must hunt down and destroy the four Stygian Lords."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Adept of Whispers
"You have the gratitude of the Order of Whispers. We have struck a great blow against the forces of Mallyx the Unyielding this day."
