Find Admiral Taylor at Admiral Taylor's Farm.


Admiral Taylor had figured out who was behind all this. He told us to save who we could... he wanted to handle matters himself.

We never heard from him again, but we have our orders.

Please... please find him. He went towards the farm.

From one commander to another... thank you.

We've been through a lot together, haven't we, <name>? Vashj'ir... the Jade Forest. Lion's Landing...

I am truly honored that I could end my journey by your side.


Head south out of the wall to Admiral Taylor's Farm. There, Admiral Taylor and a whole bunch of dead workers/villagers are in the field. Taylor's spirit is strung up on some kind of necromantic structure in the middle of the field.

Admiral Taylor yells: Hero, help me down from here. We don't have much time!
Admiral Taylor says: Ephial betrayed me. He slaughtered my men and turned them against -
Ephial says: You have heart, Taylor. I'll give you that.
Ephial says: I suppose there's not much point in disguises any more.
Ephial transforms from a standard male human to a necromancer model!
Ephial says: Now, Admiral, it is time to finish what I started.
Ephial casts a spell, and all of the dead corpses in the field start flying about, circling closer to Taylor's spirit. They combine to form Soulscythe!
Ephial yells: Rise, and carry out my will!

Aggro it:

Soulscythe says: I will tear you and your garrison apart.

At 20%:

Soulscythe says: A soldier's duty... is never done.

Finish it off:

Soulscythe says: Your time... will come.
Ephial says: Very well. I'll finish you myself.

At 50%:

Ephial says: I turned the Admiral's "followers" against him. Perhaps I shall pay your garrison a visit next?

Finish him off:

Ephial says: The dark one promised me so much... if I succeeded...
Admiral Taylor says: You've done it. We are free!

Taylor's spirit survived, somehow. Turn in to it.

On complete

Jasper Fel runs up.
Jasper Fel says: Commander, are you alright?
