Objective[edit | edit source]

  • Complete quests for the Neverwinter Vanguard Camp to collect [Vanguard Scrip]s, then speak to Dell McCourt about spending it in the Dread Ring.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Sergean Knox
I can tell you're eager to get started, but destroying Valindra will be no easy thing.

Our initial assault on the Dread Ring bought us this foothold, but the Thayans have been pushing back hard. It is all we can do each day to hold this position. Now that you're here, I hope that can change.

You want to talk to Makos, Xuna, and Celeste about what quests need doing today. They'll likely have some coin to spare as a reward, but they'll pay you primarily in Vanguard Scrips.

When you have some scrips, come back and I'll tell you how to use it. May Torm watch over you in this deadly place.

Steps[edit | edit source]

  • Speak to Celeste
  • Speak to Makos
  • Speak to Xuna
  • Complete Qests to Collect Vanguard Scrips (3)
  • Speak to Sergeant Knox
  • Speak to Dell McCourt
  • Return to Sergeant Knox

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • You seem to have made it through the batle alright.
Indeed, but not all are so lucky. I am going to be busy for quite some time, seeing to the wounded. And those who my art cannot cure, Doomguide Soulhearth must see to, lest they awake as the restless dead.

Unlike myself, you are not tethered here. Perhaps, then, you can see to a few things for me?

  • What did you have in mind?

After speaking to Celeste you can take the Planar Binding quest.

  • Are you Xuna?
Oh, it's you! You're <name>, Knox's favorite hero, right? It's a pleasure to finally meet you.

I was just trying to get one of these Thayan chests open. I've never met a lock I couldn't find some way to open, but these Thayan chests are... puzzling. And that Rath Modar character keeps smirking at me. I think he knows something he's not telling me.

I suppose Knox sent you to get your marching orders from me? I have a few ideas on that score.

  • Such as?

After speaking to Xuna you can take the Shatter quest.

  • It's nice to see you on this side of the tunnel.
It's nice to be back at the front. These Thayan talismans and charms are fascinating, and I hate being dragged from my studies to do battle. Fighting is a terribly inefficient use of my time.

The wizard Quorthon has done me the favor of astrally projecting from the Chasm to consult on some of the deeper mysteries here. But you surely don't want to hear about the eccentricities of Thayan arcanistry. I have a quest I suspect you'd be perfect for.

  • I'm happy to help.

After speaking to Makos you can take the Contingency quest.

After completing the 3 quests:

  • I have a stack of Vanguard Scrips here.
Sergeant Knox
Good work. An operation such as ours can't rely on a steady payroll in gold to make it through the supply lines. When you complete quests for the Vanguard Camp, you'll collect scrips, and be able to spend it on gear and supplies.

Dell McCourt drew the short straw and serves as the camp's quartermaster. Why don't you pay him a visit and see what he's offering?

  • I will.
  • Knox said I should talk to you about spending my Vanguard Scrips.
Dell McCourt
Aye, I'm the quartermaster for this camp. I drew the shortest straw, so while you're out fighting those tattooed wizards, I'll be here guarding the store.

I'll gladly trade you for any Vanguard Scrips for which you don't find your own uses. I've got arms, armor, implements... you name it.

  • Thanks, Dell.

Completion[edit | edit source]

Sergeant Knox
That was a good day's work. But we need more from you. You've seen what we're dealing with now.
