The Weak Link fully unlocks the Runecarver in Torghast, Tower of the Damned, and once this quest is complete, memories of the Runecarver will start dropping (or be available for purchase).


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.

Beta description
This ought to be enough to create a hole in something. If you're looking to break that prisoner free from their chains I bid you a warning, Maw-Walker.
No creature imprisoned in this place can be trusted. Tread carefully.
Beta completion
You've done me a great service, Maw Walker. I am at your disposal.
Now, onto more important matters. Allow me to explain my process and what I'll need from you.
