Reunite a minstrel with their precious lute.
I found Minstrel Idria's lute abandoned in the Grotto of Depravity.


Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Collect the lute.
  2. Find Minstrel Idria at The Shining Star.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

While you are in the Grotto of Depravity and have slain the Dark Seducer Nerazakan, you may see a lute leaning next to a pedestal on the eastern side of the room. Go to the lute and observe it:

<The name Minstrel Idria is carved on the back of this finely crafted lute.>
I should try to return the lute to its owner.

If you decide to track down the owner, Idria's Lute will appear in your inventory. Now leave the delve and start looking for Minstrel Idria. You may have already met her in the tavern in The Hollow City when she marked the Grotto's location for you on your map. So head to the city and enter The Shining Star where Idira will be standing against a wall, and go and speak with her.

"Did you find my lute? I feel almost naked without it."
I recovered your lute.
"You found it! How wonderful! Oh, I missed my lute, F'lah, so much! Oh, thank you!
I feel so happy. I think I want to play a song. Oh, F'lah, let's make some beautiful music together!"

She will then give you a small amount of gold and the Battle Minstrel's Mantle.
