Start point Quest Go to Burgh de Rott and into the basement of the pub there and speak to Veliaf Hurtz.
Official difficulty Intermediate
Description Fighting tooth and nail against the vampyre overlord, Drakan, the Myreque have moved their secret base camp to Burgh de Rott. Now the fight starts in earnest! Veliaf needs someone to make their way into the Sanguinesti region, the eastern side of Morytania cut off from the west behind an impenetrably huge wall.

Will the fight be supported by Myreque resistance inside the vampyres' domain? What grim discoveries are to be found behind that dread wall? And what of the Vyrewatch - deadly sky-bound patrollers of the blood-tithed lands of Meiyerditch?

Only a daring, quick-witted agent with an eye for detail can hope to pick their way through the tumbled down slums of Meiyerditch.

Length Very Long
Items required


Enemies to defeat None—however, Vanstrom Klause (level 169) needs to be battled, and it is very possible to die.
