Break the Runecarver free.

  • Break the Chain


This ought to be enough to break the bonds that hold your newfound ally.

<Ve'nari pauses for a moment.>

Before you do so, I offer a word of warning.

No creature imprisoned in that place should be trusted. Tread carefully, mortal.

After all, it would be a shame to lose so valuable a business partner.



It's good to remember something new again.


Freedom. Of a sort. Yes... this is good. You have my thanks.

What was it you wanted? Ah, power. Yes. Very well, then.


Back into Torghast, south to the oubliette, and speak with the Runecarver:

Did you a discover a way to free me?

Gossip I've found a way, but we only have one shot at it. Let's get you free!

A cutscene plays as the Maw Walker channels the anima into the Runecarver's right shackle, freeing that hand before the item shatters.

Runecarver says: Yes... Yes! Bonds weakening...
Runecarver says: A taste... of freedom. A place to start.

Speak with Runecarver again:

Have you recovered any more of my memories?
The more you find, the more both of us shall benefit.
  • Gossip I'd like to craft a legendary item.
  • Gossip I'd like to upgrade my legendary item.

No creature imprisoned in this place can be trusted. Tread carefully.
