Other Missions

Clear the Temples Tomb of Ash Spawn

Head inside the Temple in Raven Rock to be greeted by Elder Othreloth – the local priest. He will tell you that the tomb has been overrun by an army of Ash Spawns . If you manage to get rid of them, you do the villagers a favour – both those alive and dead.

In order to complete the mission, take the key form the priest and head to the underground. Opposite the stairs you should see a door; behind which the monsters are waiting for you.

The tomb is inhabited by a whole army of Ash Spawns – they’re really high in numbers. You don’t have a chance in a direct fight – fighting a dozen of them at the same time is a challenge which even the mightiest hero might not take on.

That’s why you should focus on stealth kills – hide in a dark corner and kill the enemies using a bow. It’s by far a more comfortable solution – all others will likely result in the fast death of the main hero.

If you don’t have the required sniping skills, you can always retreat to previous locations and regenerate your health – the enemies come in waves, so you will have a moment to heal your wounds. When they are all dead, return to the quest giver and collect your prize.

Tell Elder Othreloth That the Tomb has Been Cleansed

After as short conversation with Othreloth you will receive a payment – around 250 gold. It’s a very miserable reward, but don’t worry – you should have found plenty of valuables and resources by the corpses of the Ash Spawns.
