You need to destroy the Wrathful Spirits that threaten the rightful residents of the village in Forgotten Vale.

Quest information[edit]



  • Eliminate the Wrathful Spirits before they destroy all the villagers.
  • Return to the Reaper of the Forgotten Vale for your reward.



You should clear the closest patrolling groups of Coldfire Nights and Stalking Nights before taking the quest. When you take the quest, five groups of three hostile Tortured Spirits spawn nearby. Four of the groups spawn in the village in the midst of the allied Tortured Spirits and start attacking them. The last group will spawn on the nearby hill and can be ignored until the other groups have been handled.

Killing the hostile Tortured Spirits isn't as simple as killing a regular level 15 enemy. They use Illusionary Weaponry with a high level of Illusion Magic, inflicting 40 points of armor ignoring damage per hit. A full group of three spirits will therefore cause a very high amount of damage if they gang up on a single target.

In addition to having to cope with the enemy, you need to protect the allied spirits. If all of them die your quest will fail. In addition, the hostile spirits will attack Mayor Alegheri and the Reaper after killing all other spirits. If the mayor or reaper die your party will be returned to the outpost from which you left to the Underworld. The allied spirits far away will most likely die before you can reach them, so make sure to protect atleast one of the nearest allied spirits. Even one survivor is enough. If possible a monk should concentrate on healing one of the spirits, but you can also use traps, AoE and interruption.

After defeating the hostile spirits in the village you can take out the last group on the hill. Then talk to the Reaper to receive your reward.

Completing the quest will spawn an unlocked chest and a Black Widow next to the monument of Grenth, allowing a party member to charm it. If charming the pet, remember to ask the others not to attack it when it turns hostile. The chest will drop a random purple or gold item to one random member of the party.

Tip: There is a trick to avoid the possibility of failing the quest. The friendly spirits you need to protect will spawn to the area after you kill the Grasping Darknesses near Mayor Alegheri. If you leave the first Darkness group alive, some of the spirits will not spawn making it so you cannot fail the quest. Just remember to avoid aggroing the darknesses when fighting the Wrathful Spirits. After you have cleared the area of most of the Wrathful Spirits you can kill the Grasping Darknesses.







Initial dialogue[edit]

Reaper of the Forgotten Vale
"What destruction have the demons wrought during my imprisonment? Unable to respond to my Master's directives, I allowed many spirits to be sent to the wrong fate. Even now, new spirits are coming to my village. Spirits never meant for this place. Like so many of the dead, they will be hateful and full of malice. You must eliminate these Wrathful Spirits before they destroy those who have come to find their rightful resting place within the Forgotten Vale."
Yes Accept: "I will destroy them."
No Decline: "I don't have to do what you tell me."
Ask Ask: "So long as a single Wrathful Spirit remains in the Forgotten Vale, the village will not be safe for the gentle spirits who belong here."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Reaper of the Forgotten Vale
"I shall bear witness to my Lord Grenth of your defense of the village. The gentle spirits consigned to spend their days in this place are not capable of defending themselves."
