The quest A Lich's Lament is acquired by finding a Lich's Phylactery, which will be dropped by a random monster in Neverdeath Graveyard. The phylactery contains the spirit of the lich Zarifrax, who asks the adventurer to find him a resting place where he won't be disturbed by the Doomguides.

Objective[edit | edit source]

  • Find a Resting Place for the Lich's Phylactery

Summary[edit | edit source]

Zarifrax
Foolish Adventurer! You have picked up no mere bauble, but the phylactery of Zarifrax, all-powerful lich! Now, Prepare for a battle of wills for your very…

*Sigh* You know, I'm really just not into this.

Let me be upfront(sic) with you: I'm tired of the epic battle of good against evil. I was controlling that undead you destroyed so I could find a nice quiet spot where my phylactery won't be disturbed for a few hundred years.

You seem a capable sort. How about I offer you a reward for helping me find a resting place?

Steps[edit | edit source]

  • Take the Phylactery to First Resting Place
  • Take the Phylactery to Second Resting Place
  • Take the Phylactery to Third Resting Place
  • Take the Phylactery to Doomguide Volahk

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Take the Phylactery to First Resting Place[edit | edit source]

Zarifrax
No, this won't do at all!

The Doomguides have been here. I can still feel the smug sanctimoniousness of their rituals radiating from the very stone.

How did we end up with Undead-hating Kelemvor as a god of death anyway? I, for one, blame Cyric. Now Jergal, there was a god of death! Of course, Bhaal and Myrkul had their qualities, too.

Bah, I'm rambling. Let's try the next spot.

Take the Phylactery to Second Resting Place[edit | edit source]

Zarifrax
No, no, no! This location is even worse!

The Thayans would surely find my phylactery here. Then I'd either have to tutor some young power-mad necromancer, or become a lackey for Szass Tam, or end up trying to "reason" with Valindra Shadowmantle.

Now, don't get me wrong. I respect Valindra's dedication to evil, but that woman is simply not right in the head.

No, this location won't do either. Let's try another.

Take the Phylactery to Third Resting Place[edit | edit source]

Zarifrax
What have they done to this place!

This would have been a perfect location. Commanding view, lovely stonework, and now look at it! Ruined! I bet this was done by some greedy adventurer looking for a few measly gold pieces or a paltry magic sword. I tell you, there's just no respect anymore.

That does it! I've been searching for the perfect spot for a decade, and apparently there's no quiet place left on all Faerûn. Well, this is it. I'm done!

Take me to a Doomguide. Let them destroy me. I don't want to unlive on this planet anymore.

Completion[edit | edit source]

Doomguide Volahk
By Kelemvor's Blade! <name>, this is the phylactery of a lich, a powerful undead mage. It is a miracle it did not try to consume your very soul.

We Doomguides strive to destroy the undead, but for one this powerful, that may not be possible. Fortunately, we have constructed an impenetrable vault in a secure location which safely hold (sic) such evils for centuries, if that's what it takes.

Curious. I'd swear the spirit within seems to be... laughing.

It must be mad. No matter. We shall imprison it without delay.
