Deal with an abyssal mutiny while you travel to the monument to Tiamat.
Area Goal Quests & Cinematics
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
All right, I said I was waiting for the other dragonborn-sized boot to drop. I just wasn't expecting it to feel as though I'd been kicked by it.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
I've told you, none of this affects our mission. You know you have my loyalty, Champions.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Yes, it's more about the 'We need to go to Arkhan's Tower now, yes Arkhan's Tower is totally a place that exists in Avernus' thing for me.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Gotta admit, I'm also a mite surprised ta hear that ye've got yerself a condo in tha Nine Hells, friend. Might've been a useful thing ta know earlier.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
It's not... it's more complicated than that. And I've explained that I didn't tell you about it for fear of my enemies being able to home in on us if they knew I was in Avernus. But if we need a sample of Tiamat's blood, the tower is where we need to go. I can't give up my amulet. But I promise, the tower will give us what we need.
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc does not mean to interrupt, but if journey to Arkhan's Tower is in offing, Champions should begin journey quickly. Defenders of Uldrak's grave are on the move!
Descent Portrait GreaterSpinedDevil.png
Uldrak:
These fiends are outside our control. Flee while you can, Champions. Flee and despair...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
That's 'nuff o' that from ye, titan. We'll be back fer ye when we can. Everybody else, let's move!
1 Defeat 25 Monsters The spined devils that defended Uldrak's grave are back in full force -- and intent on ensuring that you never leave!
2 Defeat 25 Monsters The harder you drive these devils back, the harder they hit!
3 Collect 25 Spined Devil Spines The devils are flagging but won't break off. Taking some trophies from these fiends might get their attention!
4 Defeat 25 Monsters As the spined devils fall back, their lesser imp servants pour forth to fill the gap!
5 Defeat the Erinyes A deadly erinyes responds to the imps' battle cries! Send these fiends on their way so you can get on your way!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
All right, everybody on board tha war machine. Arkhan, probably best if ye drive.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Willingly. But be warned -- this won't be an easy journey.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Unlike every other part of this expedition up till now.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Arkhan, a word with you if I may. For my part, I understand your reasoning behind having kept this secret of yours. But all my instincts tell me that there's something else going on here.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
You are too insightful by far, Celeste. It's just... I have lost my mental connection to Tiamat since we arrived in Avernus. And I know not why. I worry about what it might mean... and that our mission to save Elturel might be compromised if I seek the truth.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
So you know where you're going, Arkhan? I'll be honest in telling you that if you know Avernus, it feels as though your not confiding that to us has likely cost us precious time.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
I don't know the wilds of Avernus any more than you do, Nayeli. If I did, I would have said so.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
But you keep a stronghold here...
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
I claimed the tower as a base years ago, but have always just traveled from the mortal realm directly to it. It is a... convenient site to undertake research that might prove dangerous to others in the mortal realm. I feel its direction now, though. We'll find it soon enough.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
All right. I trust you. But you seem a little on edge. Be careful about crossing certain lines, Arkhan. Or I'll be there to help pull you back, whether you want to be pulled or not.
6 Defeat 25 Monsters As you hit the road, the surviving imps take to the air in pursuit -- and they've got a flock of stirges with them!
7 Defeat 25 Monsters The stirges fall away as you build up speed -- but these imps aren't going anywhere!
8 Collect 25 Vrock Feathers A rampaging pack of vrocks zeroes in on your war machine! Clip the wings of these demons to send them on their way!
9 Defeat 25 Monsters You have the edge over the vrocks, but a wrong turn sees stirges and abyssal chickens streaming on board!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Incoming! Looks like a devil raiding party... no, wait. Yugoloths!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Blasted mercenary fiends. Gotta not only take 'em out, but then need ta worry about who they're workin' fer. And what's that leadin' 'em in tha front rank?
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
We're going to find out in a hurry. Hold on!
10 Defeat the Succubus A succubus leads a pack of mezzoloth raiders in an unexpected assault!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Something ahead on the horizon, or whatever passes for the horizon here. It looks like... yes. Hellwasp nests in the distance.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Any chance we can go around 'em?
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Is rough terrain to all sides. Ride now is bumpy enough as is, I fear this bucket of war machine parts may not survive.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
I suspect the lack of steering on this rig will make the decision for us. We'll need to push through.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
All right then. Everybody break out tha bug spray. And hang on!
11 Defeat 25 Monsters Mezzoloth stragglers make a desperate attempt to seize your war machine -- and a sudden assault of hellwasps hinders your counterattack!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc sees nests as far as eye can see! We are entering surrounded position quickly!
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
There's no other way. And if the nests are spreading to both sides, we can hope they don't extend too far ahead.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Deekin, are ye still down there in tha engine room? We need ta get more speed out o' this infernal wagon!
Icon Deekin.png
Deekin:
Feeding more fuel! All power to wheels! Doooooom!!!
12 Defeat 25 Monsters As a wild stirge pack drifts across your route, hellwasps pour out of nearby nests to redouble their assault!
13 Collect 25 Hellwasp Stingers These hellwasps won't give up! Clip their stingers to thin their ranks!
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Wait... Jarlaxle, there! Straight ahead. What is that?
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
A party on foot... armed and armored... dragonborn? No. White abishais.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
They must be a patrol from the tower. We're getting close -- and with their help, we might get there even faster.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Best see if ye can swing this war machine over a bit. Get in close 'nuff ta hail 'em.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
You there! I am Arkhan the Cruel. You will aid us, in Tiamat's name.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi, they're climbin' aboard. And they ain't lookin' too much like they're in an aidin' kind o' mood!
14 Defeat 25 Monsters This pack of white abishais patrolling the edge of hellwasp territory appear disinterested in making your acquaintance -- and are overly keen to catch a ride!
15 Defeat the Hellwasp Queen A hellwasp queen leads a final assault from the nests -- and the abishais mean to take advantage of the chaos!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
That's the last of the abishais down. Is everyone all right?
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
All accounted fer as far as I can see. Oi, Arkhan. Ye all right? Ye look like ye seen a ghost?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Yes. No, I mean. It's just... those abishais. They're the guards of the tower, their service gifted to me by Tiamat. They should have recognized me. Shown loyalty to me. I don't understand.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
You talked of feeling your connection to Tiamat broken. I wonder if this has something to do with that?
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I suspect we're going to find out in a hurry. Dark tower looming on the horizon, straight ahead!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
So this is your tower, Arkhan? The charred-skulls-mounted-on-iron-spikes motif is quiet fetching.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
I wasn't responsible for the decorating, Nayeli. And there's more here I don't like the look of.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Black abishais on the move. Arkhan, time to do your thing?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Hold, you rabble! I am Arkhan the Cruel, master of this tower and servant of Tiamat. You will escort my friends and I within.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Don't look like no escort ta me. They're chargin' ta attack! Whatever's goin' on ta wear out Arkhan's welcome, we're gonna have ta get ta this tower tha old-fashioned way!
16 Defeat 25 Monsters These black abishais seemingly have no loyalty to anyone. To get access to the tower, you'll need to clear them out first!
17 Defeat 25 Monsters White abishais join the fight alongside their kin! Don't let them surround you!
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Stand down, I say! I am Arkhan the Cruel!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Don't bother, Arkhan. It's like trying to get into an exclusive Sea Ward supper club. If you have to tell them who you are, it's already too late to make an impression.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Fast as we knock them abishais back, more o' them keep pourin' inta tha fray! We need another plan o' attack, and quick like!
18 Collect 25 Black Abishai Weapons The black abishais attempt to overwhelm you! Disarming these dragon fiends might slow their assault!
19 Defeat 25 Monsters The abishai wave seems endless! Push hard to break through!
Descent Portrait RedAbishai.png
Red Abishai:
Hold, my warriors! Let these rabble beg for mercy, and I might allow them a moment to make peace with their false gods before the end.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Dog of a deceiver. I am Arkhan, and this tower is mine. Withdraw these guards and I might overlook your insolence.
Descent Portrait RedAbishai.png
Red Abishai:
Arkhan! Such a familiar name. Not Arkhan the Cruel, surely? No, I think not. Arkhan the Disavowed, perhaps. Arkhan the Empty. Fallen servant of the fallen Dragon Queen, and master of nothing.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Tiamat fallen...? No. You lie! And even before the Dragon Queen is freed, I will end your life for your betrayal!
Descent Portrait RedAbishai.png
Red Abishai:
Tiamat's plots of escape from her prison are ended, fool, and we obey the true masters of Avernus now. I rule here -- and I will fulfill my masters' will by destroying all of you!
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Base usurper! You and all those loyal to you will pay! The Champions are here to stand against you, and you will fall!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Well, so much fer Arkhan's enemies not knowin' we're in Avernus. Everybody ready! Then hit these blighters hard!
20 Defeat the Red Abishai The red abishai who has usurped control of the tower has no interest in giving it up! Stand fast!
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
That red craven has fled with the rest of their forces. Did anyone see which way they went?
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc saw all hightailing back toward tower. But there is something between us and them. Some sort of staging ground?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
The forward command post. They'll make a stand there.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I saw something else too. The red abishai wears a token around their neck. A vial, very much like the one you're wearing, Arkhan.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
No! That heathen cur. That was the vial I came to the tower to seek. They have no right to that blessing of Tiamat! We will crush them all!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Everyone hold tha line! Follow Arkhan's lead!
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Left flank with me. Center and right, follow my Dark Order allies. Krull! Torogar! Lead the charge!
Icon Krull.png
Krull:
Arkhan's will be done!
Icon Torogar.png
Torogar:
Abishai scum! You have left the protection of Tiamat by forsaking Arkhan! You stand against us now, you die!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Well, this is exciting.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Less yakkin' and more attackin', elf. Arkhan's style might be a bit on tha excessive side fer most fights, but I got tha feelin' it's what we're gonna need today!
21 Defeat 25 Monsters A force of loyal mezzoloth mercenaries stands with the black abishai forces that hold this command post. Follow the Dark Order at the head of the ranks and hit them hard!
22 Defeat 25 Monsters The black abishais scramble to reinforce their positions. One more push should break them!
Icon Torogar.png
Torogar:
Command post routed, my lord! The abishais have fallen back!
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Excellent! Push on! Don't give them a chance to regroup!
23 Collect 25 Tridents As the abishais scatter, the mezzoloths close ranks! Disarm these opportunistic fiends to convince them they're fighting on the wrong side!
24 Defeat 25 Monsters White abishai defenders push out from the tower! Hold fast!
25 Defeat the Blue Abishai A blue abishai controls this defending force. Take out this leader to gain the edge over the abishai forces!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
That blue lieutenant dragon fiend cost us some time. Anyone see where that red blighter's gone?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Fled inside the tower, craven that they are. And the white abishais have reformed ranks. Another push, then! Everyone with me!
26 Defeat 25 Monsters The white abishais scramble to hold the tower against you -- even as a sudden incursion of abyssal chickens turns the battlefield into chaos!
27 Defeat 25 Monsters As fast as you drive the abishais back, their dedication to holding the tower remains strong.
Icon Torogar.png
Torogar:
Insolent blasphemers. Look there, my lord! The white abishais bear the symbols of Tiamat! They do not deserve the Dragon Queen's protection after turning away from her.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Blasphemers. Slay them all! Pile their bodies high! I will bathe in their heathen blood!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Arkhan, you remember when I said I'd point out you crossing a line?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
... I mean, seize those symbols of treachery! Drive these foes to ruin!
28 Collect 25 Symbols of Tiamat Claiming the symbols of Tiamat that mark the betrayal of these dragon fiends might help shatter their morale!
29 Defeat 25 Monsters The black abishais are back! And a flock of abyssal chickens is close behind!
Descent Portrait RedAbishai.png
Red Abishai:
Fall back! To the monument! Let Tiamat's prison become her grave!
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
No! Stop them! Slay that red cur!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
He's too far out o' range already. Them abishais is hoppin' onta war machines and hightailin' it out o' here. But where are they goin'?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
The monument to Tiamat. A legendary site that connects to the Dragon Queen's own prison. But I don't know the way there.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
We can't afford to let that vial of blood he's wearing get away. We need to get to our own war machine, and quickly!
30 Defeat the Green Abishai You must pursue the red abishai usurper to the monument or all is lost -- but a green abishai warlord means to end your quest here and now!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Everybody eyes front. We need to keep that abishai convoy in sight.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
We're matching their speed, at least. If we don't have any distractions, we'll catch them.
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc sees unfortunate development on distraction front. Coming in fast!
31 Defeat 25 Monsters Spined devils and bearded devils are out in full force along the convoy's route from the tower to the monument -- and they're not shy about jumping on board!
32 Defeat 25 Monsters The spined devils redouble their assault! Hang on!
33 Collect 25 Beaded Devil Tentacles As the spined devils fall back, the bearded devils make their move! A close shave might break these fiends' morale!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi. I can't say I'm tha best one fer noticin' tha finer points o' fiend features, but I'm pretty sure I recognize some o' these blighters. Keep seein' notches in some o' them that I'm pretty sure I put there tha last time we fought.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I was thinking the same thing. Their tactics suggest they know our strengths and weaknesses already. Which makes me pretty sure I know who's running this crew...
34 Defeat 25 Monsters As fast as you knock them off the war machine, more devils clamber on board and into the fray!
Descent Portrait Lucille.png
Lucille:
We meet again, Champions! Have you not learned that there is nowhere on Avernus you can flee from me?
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Fleein' ain't our plan, devil. Point o' fact, that mostly seems ta be yer choice o' tactic when tha fightin' gets tough.
Descent Portrait Lucille.png
Lucille:
Prattle on, mortal. I will deliver you all to my master in the end...
35 Defeat the Lucille The pit fiend Lucille makes another attempt to best the Champions! Give this devil everything you've got!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Pit fiend has run off again. Minsc begins to wonder when she will take hint that Champions are not best nemesis for her.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I suspect it's not her choice, Minsc. She spoke of doing the bidding of a master. It seems like everyone knows we're in Avernus by now. But I don't yet know what that means for our mission.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
We need to focus on the task at hand. There! The monument!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
That be one big dragon skull, and no mistakin'. Them bones scattered around must be tha size o' houses!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I can see the abishais disembarking. And setting up a defensive perimeter.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Those defenses will not stand. In Tiamat's name, I swear it!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc and Boo have slipped in close to abishai ranks and back. Main defensive force arrays itself around red abishai and followers. Some ritual they perform near great skull.
Icon Portrait Boo.png
Boo:
Squeak!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I can sense magic churning in every part of this place. We'll have to be careful.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
We're past that point, Celeste. Hit them hard! Follow the Dark Order in! The red usurper cannot be allowed to attempt whatever heresy they mean to perform here!
36 Defeat 25 Monsters The monument to Tiamat is well guarded by white and black abishais. Push through!
37 Defeat 25 Monsters Each time you drive the abishais back, another squad pushes in!
38 Collect 25 Tattered Tiamat Banners A break in the abishai ranks allows a pack of marauding vrocks to push in -- but you can't let them claim the magic still imbued into these tattered banners of the dragon queen!
39 Defeat 25 Monsters The white abishais regroup -- and are keen to take advantage of the vrocks' distraction as they attack!
40 Defeat the Green Abishai Dretch demons on the ground catch up to the vrock pack -- just as a green abishai champion makes a final stand to defend the monument!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
That red dragon fiend is runnin' out o' allies fast. But that's still a wall o' defenders between us and them.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
The magic here... almost overwhelming.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
That screamin' in me head. Like evil fingernails down an evil chalkboard.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
No... do you not hear it? That's the voice of Tiamat, calling for our aid! Celeste, can you focus the magic? Let me feel it?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I can try... yes, there. Arkhan, what do you hear?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
I hear the Dragon Queen calling me...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi, what's goin' on? Why's everythin' gettin' hazy?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
The red abishai's ritual... Arkhan is tapping into it somehow. And it's drawing us all into some sort of extradimensional realm! Everyone hold on!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc does not know what is happening. Even more so than usual.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
It's some sort of dream state. Arkhan, your connection to Tiamat. This must be some sort of manifestation of it, focused and amplified by the red abishai's ritual.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Yes... I feel her presence again. Oh, thank you, mistress. Speak to me...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi! Looks like we ain't alone in this dream. And wherever these new blighters is comin' from, they don't look happy!
41 Defeat 25 Monsters The dream state connecting to Tiamat is as violent as everything else dedicated to that chaotic god. Look sharp!

Celeste:
Arkhan, are you all right?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Yes, Celeste. I'm seeing things... learning my mistress's will. Just a little longer...
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
I don't know how much longer we can stand against these dream apparitions. There's no end to them!
44 Defeat 25 Monsters The red dragons return to the fray! Push past them, and quickly!
45 Defeat the Dragons A force of chromatic dragons presses you from all sides! Stand fast!
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Yes! I see it now. Oh, thank you, mistress. I swear to you, your faith in me has not been misplaced. Celeste, the dream is done. Use whatever power you have to unravel its magic. We need to get back to the monument, now!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I can feel the threads holding us here... yes, there! Everyone hang on!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi, that dragon scream! Me ears ain't gonna stop ringin' fer a tenday. But we're back! And with no time passed by tha look o' it. Arkhan, ye're sure ye learned what ye needed ta learn from all that?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
All I needed and more, my friend. My faith is renewed. My strength is iron! We will destroy the usurper and all who follow them, in the name of Tiamat! In the name of the Champions!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
A simple 'yea' would've been fine, but all right. Champions! Looks like that scream cleared some o' tha abishais out, but tha rest is preppin' fer a stand! So let's make it their last stand!
46 Defeat 25 Monsters A squad of bearded devils joins the defiant white abishais still protecting the monument! Don't let them surround you!
47 Defeat 25 Monsters As you drive one force back, another steps into the fray! Spined devils and black abishais make a deadly push against you!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
That is last of devils on the run! Is only abishais remaining.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Don't worry. These dragon fiends channel more than enough evil to carry this fight on their own. Everyone stand fast!
48 Collect 25 Abishai Teeth This last wave of zealous abishais will fight to the death! Trimming the fangs on some of these warriors might make them reconsider their resolve!
49 Defeat 25 Monsters White abishais surround you on all sides! Push back!
Descent Portrait RedAbishai.png
Red Abishai:
Traitor! Fallen hero! Forgotten follower of a more-forgotten god.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Wait... does anyone else hear a voice? Or is that only the whining of a gnat, begging to be swatted?
Descent Portrait RedAbishai.png
Red Abishai:
You think you've won. But I promise you, the battle that's coming will break you like the craven you are. And my masters will destroy you for the choices you've made!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Don't wanna get in tha way o' a masterful bit o' monologue, but them abishais is regroupin'! Everybody reform ranks! Then hit 'em hard!
50 Defeat the Red Abishai The red abishai usurper has caught up to you -- and leads the monument's defenders in a final assault!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc and Boo have scouted near and far. All abishais have fallen or fled. Champions have won the day... for Tiamat? This seems strange.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Tiamat is my concern, Minsc. And I've promised you that my loyalty to her won't interfere with our mission. Here, Celeste. The vial of the Dragon Queen's blood the usurper wore. But there's more... Champions, I think what I learned in the dream may help us.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Well, don't keep it to yourself. Like before.
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Tiamat is engaged in a struggle with the forces of the Nine Hells. And the enemy of our enemy... well, I won't call Tiamat a friend to our mission, but her power can aid us, if we aid her... by destroying Bel.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Say what now?
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Arkhan, this is problematic for any number of reasons that I'm sure you understand. Destroy the former master of Avernus? Zariel's advisor? Why?
Icon Arkhan.png
Arkhan:
Because it is my destiny...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
... All right, I got a few questions that are gonna need ta be answered before we sort all this out. But fer now, we gotta make tracks. We got a lot o' stops ta make ta get sorted all tha dealin' we been doin'. Then we can talk more about next moves -- and tha best way ta get Elturel freed.
