Learn about the less friendly side of being a monk by killing some undead that have escaped from the Catacombs.

Quest information[edit]



  • Travel to the fields north of Ashford and dispatch the skeletons there.
  • Return to Brother Mhenlo for your reward.

Early benefits[edit]



Exit Ashford Abbey into Lakeside County. Head north until you reach a group of Raging Cadavers and Skeleton Raiders attacking Ascalonian Farmers. You may choose to join the fight or hold back and heal the farmers until they kill the enemies. Since the Undead take double damage from Holy Damage, skills such as Bane Signet, Retribution and Banish are of great help here.

Once all the undead enemies are killed, return to Ashford Abbey and speak with Brother Mhenlo for your reward.



Skeletons (Undead)


Initial dialogue[edit]

Brother Mhenlo
"Most who choose the ways of light do so because they are called by Dwayna to heal and protect others. We Monks, however, must also learn when to call on Balthazar. Smiting Prayers allow us to cause damage to our enemies, especially the vile undead. Which brings me to our problem."
"Some skeletons escaped from the catacombs in the night and are harrying the fields north of Ashford. Use Smiting Prayers to destroy the skeletons, then return to me."
Yes Accept: "As you wish."
No Decline: "I'm not ready to take on skeletons!"
Ask Ask: "I'm counting on you to protect those citizens! Travel north of Ashford and use the Smiting Prayers you've learned to rid the area of the undead."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Brother Mhenlo
"You are making great progress, young one. I am proud of you."


  • The Ascalonian Farmers whom you have to protect are warriors that fight with their fists, no weapons.
