Tips and Misc

  • The Quest Journal refers to the location as "Castellan" in the text; however, everything else (location in Quest Journal, character location, quest entrance dialogue) refers to it as "Callestan".
Evan is not at home
  • Go up the staircase to Evan's apartment. It's open. He's not at home.
  • Talk to investigators.
  • Walk down the stairs, talking to neighbors.
  • Defeat fiery enemies at the bottom of the stairs.
Bar
  • Go east to tower. Continue east to the bar.
  • Talk to bar owner and all (3) patrons to learn about the lady in black.
  • Leave the bar and drop down.
Bottom floor
  • Bottom floor is full of trash. Optionally, kill some trash.
  • Optionally kill Mysterious Assassins which spawn just north of the puzzle (around ox:44 oy:46). Staying off of the ground level will reduce the likelihood of spawns.
  • Lady in black will spawn in one of five[UnverifiedIcon tooltip.png"five" has not been verified in-game. Please verify it!] known locations, find and talk with her.
    • Discussion about what causes the lady to spawn: DDO Forums.
  • She will open a secret door nearby. This will then appear on the map for all party members.
  • West of the bottom has an optional puzzle that can lead to some optional fights with ghosts of the past after you drop into sewers.
  • Solving the puzzle also spawns several power-up orbs, including high-jump and quad damage.
Down the drain
  • As you enter the secret door, you find yourself in a small room. Soon, various traps will start firing from various directions.
  • There are 8 trap boxes.
  • Break the pipes to open the hatch in the floor. The left path is safer. The right path has spikes and if you stay left you will land on a ledge with a locked chest. Defeat the rust monster (optional) that spawns to open the chest.
The sewers
  • You land in the sewers. There's a pair of shrines and a friendly half-orc contemplating how to open a door.
  • Kill some rats and rust monsters. Turn three valves to open the door. Be sure to talk to Ash before pulling both valves with crystals if you want the optional XP.
  • Continue past the door; more sewage sliding.
End fight
  • Kill enemies and protect Evan Greybeard.
