Deactivate the three runestones to set Malace free.

  • All Runestones deactivated


A cage wasn't enough to hold me, so the vrykul ensorcelled these runestones to trap me in here. Each is powered by a different Felskorn rune.

Unfortunately, they gave the runes to different guardians, who have all scattered to different places around Stormheim.

So, if Sira said that you could have your precious keystone back, you're first going to have to get me out of here.

Then, we'll see.


You will receive:

  • 19g 40s
  • 16,450 XP


Each of the runes is held by a different vrykul. Stormheim is not a safe place. Are you up to retrieving them all, <name>?


I guess I underestimated you. Good. I like to learn and grow.

Up to helping me out with one more little thing?


On accept
Malace Shade says: Hurry, demon hunter. I do not like the look of that bonfire over there.

Pick up the three quests (listed below) from the runestones that become available upon accepting this quest. Once all three have been turned in, you can finish "Rune Ruination".
