Finish your Necromancer training by defeating the Bedeviled Naga.

Quest information[edit]



  • Speak with Su.
  • Speak with Reng Ku.
  • Travel to Raiyan Cave and kill the bedeviled Naga.
  • See Headmaster Kuju for your reward.



Upon leaving Shing Jea Monastery, you will find Su standing right in front of you in Sunqua Vale. After talking to her, head north over to Reng Ku near Zhengjo Temple (which you cleared out in your first Necromancer training quest). Once you are done talking with him, you can map travel to Tsumei Village. Enter Panjiang Peninsuala, then over to Raiyan Cave (the cave where your second Necromancer training quest took place).

Upon entering the cave, you will find three groups of Naga. Depending on your level, it may be best to pull some of them away. Once they are dispatched, head farther into the cave and battle the Bedeviled Naga. Once it is killed, map travel back to Shing Jea Monastery and claim your reward from Headmaster Kuju.







Initial dialogue[edit]

Headmaster Kuju
"There you are, <character name>! Listen, dear, I need you to do something for me. Headmaster Amara tells me that a sickness has come to Cantha, and I believe that bedeviled Naga down in Raiyan Cave is the cause of it. Go and find Su and Reng Ku, my darling grandchildren, and the three of you get down to that cave and kill that nasty beast who lives there. If they refuse to help, you must go alone, for the good of the monastery and all Shing Jea inhabitants. That is reason enough to kill that creature...."
Yes Accept: "I will find your grandchildren and kill the bedeviled Naga."
No Decline: "I cannot help you now."
Ask Ask: "You will find the bedeviled Naga in Raiyan Cave. Su should be easy to find, unless she has snuck off with Jinzo again.... Reng Ku will be brooding somewhere. He is so adorable when he broods!"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

"Oh, I am far to busy to help. I have a...a meeting with Jinzo. It is strictly professional! I will have nothing to hide, but...mention it to Grandmother or my brother and I promise you I will turn you into a minion for Jinzo's class."
Reng Ku
"The sky saddens me. Each day seems more pointless than the last, each blue sky just a reminder that dark clouds will follow. I am far to depressed to help you, but stay a moment and listen to the song I am writing:
Black is the color of the heart in my chest....
Black is the color that I love best...."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Headmaster Kuju
"I made fresh minion pie today. Would you like some? It does not pay to let things go to waste, and my darling minions have short lifespans, poor things. I am grateful to you for killing that bedeviled Naga. Even if it is not the cause of the sickness, we are better off now that it is gone.
Do not forget to speak with Master Togo again now that you have completed your advanced training, dear."
