Objective[edit | edit source]
- Cross the Ashen Battlefield and reach the Vanguard Camp in the Dread Ring.
Summary[edit | edit source]
I want you to report to Sergeant Knox in the Neverwinter Vanguard Camp we've set up in the Dread Ring. To get there, you'll have to make your way across the Ashen Battlefield - the desolate territory surrounding the Ring. You'll likely encounter resistance, since the Thayans are doing everything they can to cut off our supply lines.
Once you're inside, harry the enemy. Disrupt their plans, weaken their forces, and open the way to Valindra herself. If you get the chance to kill that foul lich once and for all, you take it. Understand?
Steps[edit | edit source]
- To the Ashen Battlefield
- Enter the Breach Tunnel
- Meet with Sergeant Knox in the Neverwinter Vanguard Camp
Dialogue[edit | edit source]
The fight to breach the Dread Ring is going badly. We had to move the wounded and dying back here, as the Thayan wizards are raising the dead of both sides and turning them against us.
Celeste is a powerful cleric who's part of the Neverwinter vanguard. She's keeping the undead at bay but could definitely use your help. Ride to the battlefield and speak with Celeste.
May Torm protect you!
This place, the Ashen Battlefield, has been cursed terribly by the Red Wizards who serve Valindra in the Dread Ring. Our own slain soldiers rise against us as the walking dead, and we are forced to fight against those who before the battle were our living, breathing allies.
But while the fight here is difficult, I believe that where you are truly needed is further ahead. An ally, Makos, is leading a push to retake a tunnel leading into the Dread Ring itself. It is imperative that he succeed!
Make your way through the battlefield and give Makos your aid as soon as you can!
We mined a tunnel under the Dread Ring, but before we could enter the breach, Valindra sent her undead minions against us led by one of her lieutenants known as Varkoss the Unliving. We were pushed back and lost a number of soldiers. I've been blocking the way to give us a chance to regroup.
You're the help we've been waiting for. Fight your way to the breach and slay Varkoss the Unliving to clear our way!
Completion[edit | edit source]
You'll see some familiar faces here around the camp. Many of those who you've helped in your adventures have decided to return the favor and pitch in here. Valindra is a threat to every living being on the Sword Coast, after all.
