Obtain 16 Dark Iron Pillows.


It's a little known fact but dwarves, particularly of the Dark Iron variety, need rest! Lots of rest!

Now I ask you; How can they sleep without pillows? Exactly, <name>, they can't. This is why you must steal their pillows.

Once you've finished your cushion-thievery, talk with Taskmaster Scrange. He's a bit deeper in the cave, working on a covert project with Hansel.


What? Pillows?



I see Evonice is up to her old tricks again. I guess I'll just... um... hang onto these pillows for a while.

The important part is that you're here. We're going to need your help.


You will receive: 75s


Head up either ramp, then head circle toward the center. Dark Blacksmiths and Dark Iron Digmasters are in the area. Pillows line the walls on the beds. After looting a good half-dozen, watch out!

  • Dark Iron Worker yells: Our pillas! Someone has stolen out pillas!
  • Dark Iron Worker yells: We'll not let this act of madness go unpunished!

A cadre of Sleepy Dark Iron Workers will descend on the room. They are weak, and only have 185 health each, but still. After looting 16, head southwest to find Taskmaster Scrange. His gossip text:

I can't believe that we're doing this. I know that Calcinder's presence threatens us all, but really? Doesn't this seem like the domain of the Earthen Ring, or something?
Why's the Thorium Brotherhood gotta come save the day all the time?

During the process of completing this quest, players have triggered Chambermaid Pillaclencher's spawn event. Continue questing like normal. After killing Maltorius/Arkkus and exiting the area to the southeast searching for Oilfist, Pillaclencher will spawn. She is a level 49 elite with 21,000 health, so don't take her alone! After her death, she drops Pillaclencher's Ornate Pillow on the ground, which can be looted in the form of  [Chambermaid Pillaclencher's Pillow]. The item starts N [15-30] Look at the Size of It!, a quick reward quest back with Evonice, who is still on the ramp in the Slag Pit. It rewards  [Evonice's Landin' Pilla], 75s and +1000 Thorium Brotherhood reputation.
