Finding the Hidden Passage

Speak to Palawa Joko and try to discover the hidden passage he used in his raids on Vabbi.

Quest information[edit]


  • Talk to Palawa Joko. Find out how he moved his forces into Vabbi so easily.
  • Find Palawa Joko's Scepter.
  • Return the scepter to Palawa Joko.
  • Find the hidden passage to Vabbi.
  • See Whispers Adept for your reward.



Travel to the Bone Palace and speak to Palawa, who requires you to complete a small task before he spills the beans: retrieve his scepter from a former general in the Alkali Pan.

After killing the general, return the scepter to Palawa, who will tell you about his secret passage, without providing its exact location in Joko's Domain: in a pass between Joko's Domain and Vehjin Mines. Once you approach the entrance to the Basalt Grotto, your quest log will update; alternatively, if you already have the outpost unlocked, you can map travel there and exit into Joko's Domain.

Initial dialogue[edit]

Whispers Adept
"<Character name>, you are playing a dangerous game. Palawa Joko is not to be trusted. While he may help you find Varesh, do not doubt for a moment that he will stab you should you turn your back on him. For years, he raided Vabbi and left a swath of destruction from Kourna through the Desolation. To cover that much ground, it's evident that Joko knows something that we don't. Keep your guard up at all times and find this hidden passage to Vabbi. Who knows how long he will continue this uneasy alliance."
Yes Accept: "I'll see what I can find out."
No Decline: "Why do I have to do all the work around here?"
Ask Ask: "Have you found the secret passage to Vabbi?"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Palawa Joko
"You ask too many questions, worm bait. If you hadn't helped me regain my throne, I would strike you down for impudence. While I was sealed inside of that accursed tomb, one of my generals took control of my army and then stole my scepter! Teach this traitor a lesson and return my scepter to me. With this troublemaker out of the way and the scepter back in my possession, I will have no trouble keeping the others in line. Who knows? I might even tell you what you want to know."

When returning the scepter:

Palawa Joko
"Normally I would reward you by making you replace him, but I'm feeling...what is the word...generous?"
"On the eastern edge of my domain, there is a portal that leads into the Vehjin Mines. Of course, a secret portal that is no longer secret is useless. Now take your information and go before I make you my newest general."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Whispers Adept
"Now that we know how he moved his forces, we can prepare for his next invasion. He will attack again, I am sure of it. It may not be soon, but Palawa Joko can wait until we are dead and gone. Sooner or later he will seek rule over Elona again. The Scourge of Vabbi can hold his breath for an eternity if need be..."


  • The Rebellious General is just south of Ruins of Morah, starting there will make the run shorter but you will have to fight two groups before you can enter a Junundu.
