Arleon the Unforgiven

The Emissary of the Dead is a quest taking place in the Neverdeath Graveyard. Doomguide Volahk sends you out to prevent Xivros from raising Arleon the Unforgiven. This quest also levels the player up to Level 4.


  • Enter the Thayan camp and find a way to disrupt Xivros' ritual.


Doomguide Volahk
One of Valindra's lieutenants, Xivros, is attempting to raise a powerful ogre warlord as an undead servant. It took ten heroes to bring down Arleon the Unforgiven when he was mortal--an undead version of him would be truly formidable.

Go to the Thayan camp deep in the ruins of Neverdeath and stop this ritual. If Xivros is successful, Arleon will lead an undead army against Neverwinter!


  • Travel to the Thayan Camp
  • Go to Pauper's Field Hills
    • Find the Thayan Camp
    • Defeat Xivros
    • Enter the Tomb
    • Stop the Ritual
    • Defeat Arleon the Unforgiven
    • Return to Doomguide Volahk
  • Speak with Acolyte Neyman (Fast travel to main camp)
  • Return to Doomguide Volahk


Doomguide Volahk
I should no longer be surprised at how greatly you surpass expectations. Arleon sent many heroes to an early grave, only fitting that you should return him to his.

Your defeat of Arleon and Xivros--and your victory at the Tree of Sols--seems to have convinced Valindra to cut her losses. The number of undead in Pauper's Field is diminishing and new Doomguides are on the way. We should soon have this area under control again.

I see now why Sergeant Knox spoke so highly of you.
