Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Idrasa.
  2. Collect skulls to disrupt the spell.
  3. Place the skulls on the altar.
  4. Deal with Khralek gro-Vortag.
  5. Talk to Idrasa.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Idrasa was a Tribunal priestess, who was sent to investigate a magical disturbance in Malak's Maw along with six of her followers. They were ambushed by Khralek gro-Vortag, an Orc necromancer, who beheaded them, then bound their spirits to their skulls. She begs to be released from her torment.

You cannot simply destroy the skulls, as Idrasa says Khralek was too clever for that. The only sure way to free the priests and priestesses is to gather the skulls at the necromancer's altar, which will allow the spirits to summon Khralek to you. Then you must kill him.

The six skulls of Idrasa's followers are in cauldrons scattered about the camp. You should be able to find all of them along the path east, where Khralek's altar overlooks the area. Put the skulls on the altar, where Idrasa's skull is already, and Khralek will appear to challenge you. He uses a fire staff, but should not be too difficult to kill.

When Khralek lies dead, Idrasa will appear on the way back down the hill. She gives you her thanks, and a reward.
