Quest information[edit]

Requirements[edit]

Objectives[edit]

  • Go south and destroy the crypt fiends.
  • Return to Oberan the Reviled for your reward.

Early benefits[edit]

Reward[edit]

Walkthrough[edit]

This quest is pretty straightforward. Just kill the crypt fiends and get your reward. You can use Faintedheartedness and Life Siphon to inflict heavy degenerative damage. And if you cast Soul Barbs before that, both hexes will cause damage when cast on them.

Note that Oberan can be hard to find for new players. It is a good idea to acquire the quest Charr in the Catacombs from Prince Rurik as it will lead the player straight to Oberan.

Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Oberan the Reviled
"Working here in the catacombs protects me from the prying eyes of the living, but my necromantic experiments have begun to attract the attention of creatures from beyond the pale. I'd like to continue my work without interruption by these infernal beasts"
"If you go south and eliminate the crypt fiends that have been bothering me, I will share with you a few of my most essential Curses. Then you too will see that the true power in the Necromancer's art lies not merely in the manipulation of the dead."
Yes Accept: "Consider it a bargain."
No Decline: "I'm not sure I can handle this."
Ask Ask: "Don't squander the power I have placed at your fingertips! The crypt fiends are not far from here. The demons cannot help but be drawn to the dark forces I command."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Oberan the Reviled
"Excellent. I shall be glad to be rid of those fiends. You show promise in the art of necromancy."
