Quest information[edit]


  • Capture the portal location to close the rift that provides the demons passage from the Realm of Torment.
  • See Voice of Whispers for your reward.



Head towards the rift, which is located north of the cave that you defended in the preceding quest. You will notice a list of stationary Torment creatures, with three groups of patrols around it. Two of the stationary foes are Torment Claws. It is advisable to clear off other mobs around the area before you engage the foes around the rift, to give you more space.

Start by pulling the patrols and taking care of them one at a time. Once the patrols are cleared, pull the stationary foes, which are not all in the same group. Once you kill the Torment Claws, be ready to retreat. When the rift starts closing, five groups of Torment creatures will spawn and charge to the rift's location in waves. It's recommended to retreat to a safe location and intercept just one or two of the groups away from the rift. Then just return and pull the remaining groups before closing the rift.

If you do not have any minions or spirits that automatically attack the Torment Claws, it is possible to close the rift before the reinforcements arrive. Once the rift is closed, the quest is complete, regardless of whether the reinforcements are still alive or not.

Initial dialogue[edit]

Warden of Whispers
"[Difficulty: Master] We have discovered the method by which the demons have breached our realm. It is imperative that we shut the portal down once and for all; not only for our sake, but for the sake of countless other lands. Are you with us?"
Yes Accept: "We will shut down that portal or die trying!"
No Decline: "Sorry, I have this phobia of interdimensional monsters..."
Ask Ask: "We must destroy the portal the demons use to travel between worlds."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Voice of Whispers
"Your help was invaluable, my friends, but there is still much left to do. The Order of Whispers needs your help. We will remain here and track down our original targets, though we shall not fail this time. See me when you are ready for orders."


  • There is a song by the Dave Matthews Band titled "The Space Between Us."
