Area Goal Quests & Cinematics
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
What in tha name o'... what's happenin'?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
We've been taken somewhere. It's so hard to focus. Is everyone here?
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
No. Lulu's gone! Where are we? Where is the sword?
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
I'd like to point out that wherever we are is most definitely on fire. And there's a hyena pack bearing down on us! Everybody freaking move!
1 Defeat 25 Monsters An unknown battle unfolds around you -- but figuring out where you are means needing to survive this hyena assault first!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
That's sent them hyenas all yippin' away ta lick their wounds. But looks like they're already plannin' a counterattack.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
With this fire, I assumed we'd been transported across Avernus. But those buildings... the sky. I think we're back in the world. I don't understand...
Descent Portrait SmilertheDefiler.png
Smiler:
I'm going to say 'no' to that, friends. Oh, it looks real enough, to be sure. But trust Smiler to tell what's real from what isn't. Look for the horizon, and there's nothing there but a blur. We're not in Avernus or the mortal realm. This is... something else...
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Of course. I know what this is! Lulu's missing because she's the one creating this place. We've entered one of her dreams, like the ones Mad Maggie's ritual opened up to us in Fort Knucklebone.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
But those were dreams of Avernus, showing us the route to the Bleeding Citadel. What is all this?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I don't know. But figuring that out is going to mean fighting our way through it! Come on!
2 Defeat 25 Monsters As fast as you send these hyenas running, still more push into the fray!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Whoever was living in this town, I don't see any sign of them. This place is deserted. Is that a function of the dream, do you think?
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
If not, we can hope they all fled when this assault started. No, wait! Look there! There are survivors on the move!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Wave them in. Get them behind us before the hyenas regroup.
Icon Portrait RogueSurvivor.png
Geylan:
Oh, thank you! I'm Geylan, and Lathander be praised. We tried to get out when the gnolls came, but we were cut off. We've been praying someone would come to our aid. This is just like the old legends. They've come back to finish what they couldn't the first time.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
I got even more questions now than I did when we got here. But let's start with askin' if ye can tell us where 'here' is?
Icon Portrait RogueSurvivor.png
Geylan:
I don't understand. This is Idyllglen. Has Lathander not sent you?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I fear that explaining who's sent us would take longer than we have. But I think I understand now. Friends, get clear of here. Get to safety. Leave this fight to us.
3 Collect 25 Hyena paws With survivors safely on the move, you need to hold these hyenas back. Turning a few of them into trophies might be the only way to disrupt their assault!
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
Celeste, what the townsfolk said. This is Idyllglen? But it can't be.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Yet I fear it is. Look around you. It all makes sense.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
At the risk of losing all my credibility as a man about Faerûn, can either of you explain to the rest of us what you've obviously figured out?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Idyllglen was a town threatened by gnolls ages ago. The archangel Zariel saved its people after being sent by Lathander. There'll be a statue of her here somewhere. It's said to be quite striking.
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
But generations later, the gnolls returned. They marched with demons, and... Yeenoghu himself came, or so the stories go. Seeking vengeance on Zariel. She came again and vanquished Yeenoghu, but nearly too late.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
And we been dragged here ta watch it happen? Back ta a dream o' Faerûn from back in tha past? But why?
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
Yael knew. Lulu knew. We're here for a reason. There's something we're meant to learn, something we have to see. But until then, we need to hold back the tide of the gnoll attack until Zariel can get here. Come on!
4 Defeat 25 Monsters The gnolls laying waste to Idyllglen are seen at last! Take these raiders down!
5 Defeat the Gnoll Leader The leader of this gnoll pack tries to get their forces to regroup! Time to finish this fight!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
First strike to us. But the gnolls will regroup. And from the sound of the history, there'll be worse to come.
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
But we have edge of sorts, it seems to Minsc. We know what fight has come here. We know Zariel arrives.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I think we know even more than that. Those cryptic phrases the ghost of Yael was sharing. 'Idyllglen doesn't have long, Lulu. History repeats itself.' She was setting up our mission here. So we need to remember what else she said.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I'll definitely make a point of jotting down the ramblings of incoherent spirits in future. But I admit I missed most of that, what with fighting for my life the whole time.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
It doesn't sound like that's about to change. The hyenas are howling! Everyone move!
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
More survivors fleeing gnolls. Quickly! Help them get clear.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi, friend! We's here ta help, but we're strangers ta yer town. Where should we be goin' ta be o' tha best use ta ye and yers?
Icon Portrait Merchant.png
Darrian:
Thank Lathander you've come. I'm Darrian, acolyte to the Morning Lord. Those townsfolk who couldn't flee will likely seek refuge at the temple. We were heading there, but a gnoll pack cut us off. They're right behind us!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Then you'll come with us. Show us the way to the temple and we'll clear the path. Everyone reform ranks! Then find these gnolls and take them down!
6 Defeat 25 Monsters Your route to the temple is marked -- but you'll need to clear these hyenas from the burning streets to get there!
7 Defeat 25 Monsters As the hyenas redouble their assault, a force of gnolls wades into melee against you!
8 Collect 25 Keys These keys scattered along the entrance to the temple might be valuable. Grab them up!
Icon Portrait Merchant.png
Darrian:
There! The temple!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc sees more townsfolk on move! Quickly, work to get everyone inside and safe. Champions will hold street!
Icon Portrait Boo.png
Boo:
Squeak!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Yes, Boo. Statue of Zariel is just as lovely as Celeste says.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
And let's hope she shows up in person quickly. I hear a howling in the distance that I don't like...
9 Defeat 25 Monsters The gnolls retreat as you reach the temple. But wild dogs push in with the hyenas to take up the fight!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Right, I think that's tha last o' tha townsfolk inside. And good timin', too. That howlin' Nayeli heard is gettin' closer.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
I'm getting to know that sound. Those are the demons the story of Idyllglen was promising, and right on schedule.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I can see something coming in fast. And it's got an army of hyenas and wild dogs right behind it!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Reform ranks! Hold them back! Whatever happens, keep them out of the temple!
10 Defeat the Hezrou A demonic hezrou forces you to make a stand before the temple entrance. Take this fiend out!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
One hezrou down. How many more to go?
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
It looks as though we might get a brief respite before we find out. We should check inside the temple, make sure people are all right.
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
We might want to check quick. I'm pretty sure I hear yelling coming from inside...
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
All right, so not so much yelling as a really loud sermon. That's quite something.
Icon Portrait TemplarWizard.png
Jhessa:
We will be redeemed! By the word and power of Lathander, our fate is ordained! For we have faced the fire before, and we will face it again, and the forces of good will be victorious!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
It looks like it's doing the trick by keeping the townsfolk from being overwhelmed by fear. If it helps avoid panic, a little proselytizing never hurt anyone.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi! Is it just me, or am I hearin' other shoutin' comin' from tha back o' tha nave too? And why's tha light in here gettin' all orange-like?
Icon Portrait Merchant.png
Darrian:
Fire! Fire in the temple! Something summons our doom!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
It looks as though deciding to check inside was a timely choice. Let's go!
11 Defeat 25 Monsters Fire elementals have Lathander's temple under siege! Clear them out!
Icon Portrait TemplarWizard.png
Jhessa:
Soldnor Brightstar it was who turned back the darkness that long-ago day with faith! My ancestor, and the most faithful of Lathander!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi! Priest! I don't mean ta get in tha way o' any folk's beliefs, but this might be a good time ta stop tha sermon and help folks in keepin' tha temple from burnin' down!
Icon Portrait TemplarWizard.png
Jhessa:
If fire is Lathander's will, then so be it! The Morning Lord blessed the town with Zariel's arrival on that dark day! And by staying strong in our faith to Lathander, his blessing will be ours again!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Just give her a wide berth and help the others. And take these elementals down!
12 Defeat 25 Monsters As fast as you destroy them, still more elementals appear!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I think we have the elementals under control. Or at the very least, while they're occupied fighting us, they can't be burning anything down.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
I suspect that's good timing. I can hear hyenas outside -- and a lot of them, by the sound of it. Are the doors and windows here going to hold?
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Doors look solid 'nuff, and we can get some townsfolk guardin' 'em. But these windows could use some shorin' up. Everybody with me!
13 Collect 25 Wooden Boards As you get the elementals under control, fortifying the windows with these boards will help prevent an assault from outside!
14 Defeat 25 Monsters A temporary reprieve in the elemental assault lets a hyena pack push in! Clear them out, and quickly!
15 Defeat the Greater Fire Elemental As the hyenas press you, a greater fire elemental leads a final onslaught of its lesser kin! Stand fast!
Icon Portrait TemplarWizard.png
Jhessa:
I say to you, all are part of Lathander's plan! And by his grace will Idyllglen be... honestly, can you all keep the noise down!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Finally! I was wonderin' what it would take ta get yer attention, priest.
Icon Portrait TemplarWizard.png
Jhessa:
That's Jhessa Brightstar to you, sir. I tell you, if you breaking the focus of my benediction interferes with our prayers to Lathander for salvation, you'll have to answer to a higher power.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Jhessa, I think it's clear that we're all on the same side here. And we thank you for your leadership in faith, which no doubt will make us protecting your town that much easier.
Icon Portrait TemplarWizard.png
Jhessa:
Yes, well... all of this is clearly Lathander's will. But we cannot let our prayers flag until Zariel is come. For she will come! I know it.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
As it turns out, we know it too. But we can't tarry until then. There are demons coming, and...
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
Time to go present tense on the warnings. The freaking demons are here! Everybody outside now!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Blasted dretches has tha place surrounded! But there's some good news! We got armed townsfolk behind 'em. We can pin 'em down quick.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I think you need to take a closer look at those guards. That doesn't look like the thrill of victory in their expressions.
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
That slime all over them! It's put them in a state of madness!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
One of Yeenoghu's tricks. We'll need to take them out of the fight without hurting them badly!
16 Defeat 25 Monsters This squad of dretches should be easy targets. But the attacks of these corrupted guards are going to complicate this fight!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
We're getting hemmed in here. We need more room to maneuver!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Start backin' up! Get clear o' tha temple, but keep these blighters' attention straight on us. We don't want 'em anywhere we can't see 'em!
17 Defeat 25 Monsters Keeping these fiendish forces focused on you means more safety for the town. Keep at them!
18 Collect 25 Symbols of Lathander Claiming these guards' symbols of Lathander might help shake them out of their madness! Quickly, now!
19 Defeat 25 Monsters The guards' madness begins to lift -- but a pack of hyenas pushes in to even the odds!
20 Defeat the Tanarukk The last guards have scattered, but the gnolls are back -- and they've brought a fiendish tanarukk with them!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Don't know if it's just me, but this fight feels like it's gettin' tougher.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
It's not just you. The gnolls can't hold their own against us. But whatever demonic forces Yeenoghu is bringing into play are going to overwhelm us.
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
Zariel will come. I know she'll come. We just need to hold on.
21 Defeat 25 Monsters The gnolls fall back in the hope that their hyena packs can finish you off!
22 Defeat 25 Monsters As the hyenas harry you, a gnoll strike team wades into the fray!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi! That's some monstrous horrid singin' comin' from ahead. Is that them gnolls?
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
I might just be failing a lore check, but since when did gnolls take up choir?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
When they're summoning their dark god. They're chanting to welcome Yeenoghu. 'The Beast of Butchery is coming...' Yael said.
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
Ah. Well, ask a stupid question...
23 Collect 25 Singed Spell Scrolls Dretches swarming around this destroyed magic shop are the vanguard of the demonic assault. Grab up some singed spell scrolls while you can!
24 Defeat 25 Monsters Packs of vrocks circling the town home in on you. Demonic forces are advancing!
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
The vrocks are fighting too close together. They're slamming into each other. It doesn't make sense!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
They's coverin' fer somethin' behind 'em. Tryin' ta keep us from seein' it.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
They were doing us a favor, I think. Barlgura, coming in fast!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
We need to stop this fiend in its tracks. Reform ranks on me! Then hit it hard!
25 Defeat the Barlgura As the vrocks step up their assault, a hulking barlgura wades into the fray! Stand fast!
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
That's done it! With the big demon-ape down, the vrocks are scattering!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Worse news from behind us. The gnolls are regrouping. And whoever's summoning those fire elementals is working overtime.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
That'll be Yeenoghu's shamans, trying to create maximum chaos. So we need to get that chaos under control.
26 Defeat 25 Monsters While fire elementals continue to set the town ablaze, packs of gnolls stalk you. Take these reavers down!
27 Defeat 25 Monsters As hard as you hit them, the gnolls are quick to regroup!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Ha! That's got them hyena-headed cravens on tha run. If their numbers don't wear a foe down, they got no stomach fer a straight-up fight.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
They seemed intent on keeping us from locking the fight down. Like they were guarding something up ahead. I think we should probably find out what.
28 Collect 25 crossbows As the pack falls back, a cache of crossbows left behind are revealed. Grab up these weapons before the gnolls return!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
No sign of the gnolls regrouping. But that's a wall of fire elementals as far as the eye can see.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
If we let them run amok, there's no telling how much more damage they'll do. We need to keep them away from the buildings. Get their attention! Then let them focus on us!
29 Defeat 25 Monsters As fast as you disperse them, more of these fire elementals appear! You need to turn the tide before they burn Idyllglen to the ground!
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
Well, that plan for focusing the elementals on us worked out great. We're freaking surrounded!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Is fine. Is all part of clever plan to attract boss elemental to center of fight. We play to ego. Show fiery creature their power is all false bravado. Then we strike!
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
I'm pretty sure that setup is supposed to end with a dance-off, not an elemental conflagration! Look out!
30 Defeat the Greater Fire Elemental Another greater fire elemental leads this destructive march! End this elemental threat now!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi! That was one hot fight, ta be sure. Everybody accounted fer still?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
All present and safe, if slightly singed. But the elementals have been dispersed. The townsfolk might have a chance at putting the worst of the fires out now. Assuming we can stand against whatever's next.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Do you remember enough of this little history lesson to tell what that might be?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
No. But I think I can guess...
31 Defeat 25 Monsters A wave of vrocks makes a move against the most significant threat standing against Yeenoghu's demonic horde -- you!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Gnolls inbound! They can tell these vrocks aren't making any headway against us.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Gotta quit fightin' on two sides if we're gonna make any headway here. Hold them gnolls at bay, but work on cuttin' these demons down ta size!
32 Defeat 25 Monsters A gnoll pack pushes in to shore up the vrocks' assault!
33 Collect 25 Vrock Feathers The vrock attack isn't letting up! Clipping these fiends' wings might slow them down!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
The vrocks are scattering! Whoever's rallying the demons is figuring out that this fight isn't going to be as easy as they thought.
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Everyone be looking! Gnolls are moving to take up slack!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Good. If we have a chance to focus on the gnoll pack, we have a chance to break them. Hit them hard!
34 Defeat 25 Monsters As another wave of gnolls crashes into your front ranks, their archers try to pin you down from range!
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
There! Straight on and moving in quick! That's one tall gnoll!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
That'll be the leader, trying to regroup forces. So we need to take them down before they're successful!
35 Defeat the Gnoll King A gnoll king leads a hyena pack in under a hail of arrows! Take this leader down, and the resolve of the gnoll forces will shatter!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
One gnoll kingpin down. One gnoll pack, runnin'. That's a good afternoon's work, if I don't mind me sayin' so.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
I wish the work was over. But if Zariel doesn't arrive, I don't know how this fight is meant to end. Reya? Shouldn't she have been here by now?
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
I don't know. But we're fighting the battle that needs to be fought. We're part of this, now and forever. That's what matters.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I'm not so sure. This is Lulu's dream, but whatever magic is bringing it to life is unbelievably potent. This whole moving-back-through-time thing is uncharted territory. What if by being here, we actually end up changing what happened? What if us being the heroes who save Idyllglen means Zariel doesn't have to show up at all?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I can't say for certain. But that doesn't seem to fit the clues Yael gave us. 'The Morning Lord sends his angel. The Hellriders come...'
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
There's something else coming first. The demons are on the move!
36 Defeat 25 Monsters Dretches are going house to house, destroying all they find. Send these fiends back to the darkness!
37 Defeat 25 Monsters The dretches are on the run, but aerial support from the vrock pack keeps you pinned down!
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
Somebody's released the hounds. The freaking gnolls are back!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Stragglers from tha last wave. They won't be any trouble ta take down, but they're gonna get in our way.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
They're ramping up for some kind of endgame. That chanting is getting even louder.

Bruenor:
Well then, let's see if we can disrupt tha sing-along a bit. Oi! Everybody grab somethin' from what's been cleared outta these houses. Then throw down some furniture barricades ta slow them gnolls down!
38 Collect 25 Chairs As vrocks press you, stock up on old chairs to slow the gnolls' advance!
39 Defeat 25 Monsters A renewed assault against the gnolls drives them back. Keep pushing!
40 Defeat the Barlgura Another barlgura races into the fray, supported by gnoll archers! Look sharp!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Really hopin' that's tha last o' them barlguras we're fightin' today. Them dwarf-sized fists gives a real poundin'.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
I think you might get your wish... but I'm not sure that's a good thing. The demons have scattered. I think they might be gone. But the gnolls are circling. Waiting for something.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Pretty sure we don't need ta guess before we find out what...
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
What was that? Ground is shaking! All is uproar!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
He's here... I can sense his evil.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
'He approaches. Stand fast for Idyllglen. The Beast of Butchery comes...'
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Feh. Was really hopin' that archangel'd get here before it came ta this. But if it's just us, then it's time ta fight. Champions! Move fast! We gotta find us a demon lord before he wipes this town right off tha map!
41 Defeat 25 Monsters Yeenoghu has come! Clear these hyenas out of the way, or Idyllglen is lost!
42 Defeat 25 Monsters The elite forces of the demon lord smash into you like a wave! Stand fast!
43 Defeat 1 Burning Debris Behind a wall of burning debris, gnoll archers try to pin you down! Push through!
44 Defeat 25 Monsters You push toward the gnoll archers, but packs of hyenas slow your advance!

Reya:
Oh, my... there! At the temple!
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
Yikes. I'd say he looks less impressive in person. But, well...
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
It's time. Champions, move! Get to the temple now!
Descent Portrait Yeenoghu.png
Yeenoghu:
Burn it all! Flay these mortal vermin alive! They will pay for their defiance! They will pay for the sins of their forebears!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Demon! If it's payment you're looking for, you've come to the right place. But when the Champions tally your bill, I promise you, you'll be the one with a balance owing.
Descent Portrait Yeenoghu.png
Yeenoghu:
Heroes? How quaint. I will feed on you first -- and listen to the screams of those who looked to you as saviors while they watch...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Got a couple o' choice retorts that could be made here. But frankly, gnoll, ye ain't worth it. We'll give ye one chance. Send yer pack runnin'. Take yer demons back ta tha darkness. Or we're takin' ye down!
Descent Portrait Yeenoghu.png
Yeenoghu:
Miscreants! Mortal rabble! You dare stand against me? You dare defy me?!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
We'll dare that and more. Champions! Attack!
45 Defeat the Yeenoghu Only you can end Yeenoghu's threat! Make your stand against a demon lord!
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
Holy mother of... did you see that?
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
Zariel! I knew she'd come!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
And just in tha nick o' time, too. I ain't sure we coulda finished that fiend ourselves.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
The fight's not over yet. Gnolls and hyenas are running wild. And the Idyllglen guards are still corrupted by the demon lord's power.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
No, it's not over. 'The light pushes back on the dark, and heroes stand on the cusp of shadow to do what is right...' There's something still to come. Some piece of the puzzle still missing. We need to reach Zariel. Come on!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Be careful with these ones! I doubt they even have any idea they're fighting us.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I can see Zariel's Hellriders setting up a cordon around the town. They're clearing the last of the gnolls out.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi! What's that flyin' with 'em? That's a gold winged mammoth, that is! Is it...? It can't be...
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
It is! It's Lulu as she was. And there, look! It's Yael. Haruman. All the Hellriders as they were, before... before...
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
It's all right, Reya. Everyone, quickly! We need to get these guards under control. Then we need to speak with Zariel. We need to find out why we're here...
46 Defeat 25 Monsters The guards of Idyllglen remain transformed by the chaotic power that surges around the temple! End their threat, and quickly!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Right, that's tha last o' them guards quietened down. A bit o' rest and healin', and they'll be... fine... oi. What's goin' on? Everythin's gone quiet. 'Tis like time's stoppin'.
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
The dream state is changing. Something's happening. Zariel! She comes...
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
But this isn't really Zariel. This is just in Lulu's mind. Isn't it? Celeste?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I don't know, Jarlaxle. Nothing I know prepares me for this.
Descent Portrait ZarielAngel.png
Zariel:
Yeenoghu slaughtered those I swore to protect. I can stop him and others like him. I might have to give up all I stand for, but I could stem the tide of chaos and save many lives from the demonic terrors of the Abyss. Were you in my place, would you risk it all to save others?
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
That's it. This is why we're here. That question, knowing the archangel's mind. Zariel, I'll answer! No. In a heartbeat, no. Whatever the risk, whatever the pain, a thousand times, no! Give up what you stand for, and everything you do thereafter, every choice you make, is tainted. When you lose who you are. No. Just... no...
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
What is happening? Archangel is fading! Sky is turning dark!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
The dream is breaking. We're returning to the Bleeding Citadel. Hold on!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Is everyone all right? Lulu!
Descent Portrait Lulu.png
Lulu:
Celeste... I thought... I dreamed... oh, Zariel...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
We know, little hollyphant. We was all there ta see.
Descent Portrait Lulu.png
Lulu:
I remember everything now. Idyllglen was where everything changed. Zariel was... desperate. A darkness in her. We followed her to Avernus, but the evil there proved to be too much. Once she aligned with Asmodeus to marshal his forces and try to stop the blood war, Yael and I took her sword.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
And we saw that darkness bloom. When Zariel saw the destruction Yeenoghu wrought in Idyllglen, the seed of her corruption was sown. She yearned for the power to destroy all demonkind. And Asmodeus offered her that power.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
'Were you in my place, would you risk it all to save others?' It was that question that broke her.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi! Don't mean ta interrupt, but it looks like we weren't tha only things that crossed over out o' Lulu's dream! Everybody look sharp!
47 Defeat 25 Monsters Lulu's dream comes to its end! The sword of Zariel waits for you! But the hyenas that haunt this vision remain a deadly threat!
Descent Portrait Lulu.png
Lulu:
I'm sorry. I'm sorry. This is all my fault. If only I'd remembered more from the beginning!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
It's all right, Lulu. Thank you for what you showed us. For what you did.
Descent Portrait Yael.png
Yael:
Lulu and I gave everything to create this safe haven within the horrors of Avernus, hoping for a future that has finally arrived.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
But there's still much future to be written. We need to claim the sword. We need to get to Elturel.
Descent Portrait Yael.png
Yael:
The sword is yours, Champions. You have faced many trials to claim this boon. But though you are worthy, I'm sorry to say that you face one final test. The hero who becomes one with this blade will exist no longer. You must decide which of you is brave enough to draw the blade -- and to be gone forever.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Of course. I should have expected that. The power of an archangel's sword won't allow itself to be wielded by a mortal.
Descent Portrait SmilertheDefiler.png
Smiler:
Well, that sounds like quite the conundrum. So if we're looking for volunteers...
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
You'll be at the very end of that list, Smiler. And please don't get any ideas... wait. Everything's shifting. We're leaving the dream... everyone hold on...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
I'm hopin' that was tha last dream jump fer a while. Always leaves me feelin' a mite queasy.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I think that's it for now. We're back. But we're not alone!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Devils! Zariel's forces must have reached the Bleeding Citadel while we were in the dream state. Clear them out! Don't let them near the sword!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
And grab up tha soul coins them fiends is droppin'! We got a long road back ta Elturel, and we're gonna need ta make time!
48 Collect 25 Soul Coins You are returned to Avernus at last! But a force of spined devils means to keep you from claiming the blade that will save Elturel!
Icon Calliope.png
Calliope:
These devils aren't letting up! We're not making any headway!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
They're pushin' forward like they're just as afraid o' somethin' behind 'em as they are o' us.
Descent Portrait Lucille.png
Lucille:
And what would that be, dwarf?
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
No. No! Not now, pit fiend. You're too late to stop this.
Descent Portrait Lucille.png
Lucille:
From where I stand, it looks like I'm exactly where I want to be. Zariel sends her regards, Champions -- and her thanks for retrieving her sword!
49 Defeat 25 Monsters Your dread nemesis Lucille means to end your quest by unleashing a pack of shrieking vrocks bound to her service! Stand fast!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Push these fiends back! We need to reach Lucille. Come to me, craven! Fight me if you dare!
Descent Portrait Lucille.png
Lucille:
Your pathetic bravado no longer serves you, mortal. I will kill you when I deem the moment right. Sometime after you've watched your precious city slip into the River Styx. When you've realized that all you fought for, all you strove for, is lost...
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
No! You'll not stop us from saving Elturel, fiend. For we have the will of the archangel Zariel at our side, and even in her memory, she holds more power than your corrupted master. Prepare to finish this dance, once and for all!
50 Defeat the Lucille Claiming the Sword of Zariel means finishing Lucille and her fiendish servants. But when the battle is done, who will pay the price the sword demands?
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Lucille's down! But I'm bettin' she's got more forces outside. We ain't got time ta waste. We need ta grab that sword, then get ta tha war machine!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
We can't think about the fight to come before we focus on the here and now. One of us needs to claim the Sword. One of us needs to be prepared to give up... everything. I... I know it should be me. But if I do, I need you all to... Wait. Reya! What are you doing?
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
What I'm meant to do, Nayeli. Claiming the Sword of Zariel. I know it has to be me.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Reya... are ye sure, lass?
Descent Portrait ReyaMantlemornOngoing.png
Reya:
I've dedicated my life to Zariel's mission, Bruenor. If I can do this, then... win or lose, I'll have fulfilled my oath. Thank you all. Thank you for bringing me this far...
Descent Portrait ReyaHandontheHilt.png

Zariel... She's close.
