Ve'nari is a broker located at her refuge within the Maw. She trades in [Stygia] for useful items in the Maw and Torghast, Tower of the Damned.

She lives among the shadows and, through unknown means, has managed to survive inside the Maw for years[1] away from the eyes of The Jailer. She is the closest thing adventurers can find to a friendly face in the Maw.[2] However, Ve'nari is very elusive and seems to always know more than she is saying. She states that her relationship with the adventurers is pure business: they give what she wants, and she gives what they need.

Ve'nari is hiding from the rest of Cartel Ve,[3] despite having originally assigned by them to the Maw.[4][1] The reasons for their animosity are unclear; while Ve'brax claims that Ve'nari betrayed them,[4] Ve'nari maintains that it was they who betrayed her.[1] According to the findings of Ta'lora, Ve'nari was the leader of the expedition into the Maw, but after discovering a defensible position in the area, Ve'nari arranged the elimination of her fellow cartel members to secure exclusive access to her newfound resources.[5]


Ve'nari knows more about the Maw than anyone, and she might share a fraction of that information with you if you earn her regard.

Like selected NPCs from other expansions, Ve'nari has her own reputation faction. Various standings with her are required to purchase some of her wares and gain access to some areas of the Maw. Uniquely, Ve'nari's goods can be purchased based on the highest reputation of all characters on your account, rather than the reputation of the character purchasing the item.

Standing Overall rep To next level
Dubious 0 - 999 1,000
Apprehensive 1,000 - 6,999 6,000
Tentative 7,000 - 13,999 7,000
Ambivalent 14,000 - 20,999 7,000
Cordial 21,000 - 41,999 21,000
Appreciative 42,000 10,000
Paragon n/a 10,000

In patch 9.1, Ve'nari's standing can gain paragon reputation. Earn another 10,000 points of standing with her to acquire the  [Mysterious Gift from Ve'nari] from her via the quest N [60] Mysterious Gifts from Ve'nari. The chest contains 3,500g, 1,000 [Stygia], and can contain  [Rook] or  [Soulbound Gloomcharger's Reins].


Ve'nari reputation is gained by completing her daily and weekly quests, as well as defeating encounters in the Maw:

Maw currencies
Source Reputation Stygia Threat Threat per rep Threat per Stygia
Generic mob 0 ≈1 6 6.00
Generic elite 0 ≈2.5 12 4.80
Rescue soul 0 ≈20 100 5.00
Event mob 40 ≈45 300 7.50 6.67
Rare mob 80 ≈50 300 3.75 6.00
Rare elite mob 100 ≈75 500 5.00 6.67
Daily quests 75 140 500 6.67 3.57
Wrath of the Jailer (weekly) 250 100 500 2.00 5.00
Perdition/Beastwarrens daily 100 225 667 6.67 2.96
Weekly quests 850 425 1000 1.18 2.35
Beastwarrens Hunt 525 ≈300 1000 1.90 3.33
Perdition Hold weekly 1100 700 1200 1.09 1.71
Maw Lore (one-time) 100-150 0 0 0 0

It is recommended to focus on the daily quests first, then the weeklies. Once they're done, complete a Wrath of the Jailer event once a week (preferably with a group), and then kill rares and complete events around the Maw until Eye of the Jailer has filled, to maximize the reputation earned.

Rares and events have a decent chance of dropping a Maw Lore item quest, which can be turned in at Ve'nari for 100 reputation.

After Rule 4: Make a List:

Gossip Your cartel says they know what you did. Is there something you're not telling me?

Oh, there are many things I choose not to tell you. As I am sure there are many things you do not tell me.
Trust is built on discretion, Maw Walker. Without it, business would be impossible.
That being said, I have trusted you with my most valuable secret: the location of this very refuge. I ask only that you trust me in return.

After Rule 5: Be Audacious:

Gossip Aren't you concerned about the brokers who were taken to the Beastwarrens?

It is unfortunate that they should suffer such a fate, but make no mistake. They are as much our enemy as are the Mawsworn.
Those brokers were doomed from the moment they arrived. And even if you rescued them, doing so would only invite ruin upon us both.
A ruthless mentality, I admit. But it is one that is necessary for survival in the Maw.
You would do well to remember that.

After Rule 6: Concealment is Everything:

Gossip What happened to the other brokers who came into the Maw with you?

None of the others survived. Only me.
The Maw, as you are well aware, is a dangerous place. And while traveling in a large group may provide the illusion of security, in reality it just makes you a more tempting target.
We learned that the hard way. Our numbers were whittled away until there were few enough of us left to hide ourselves. That slowed the hunt... but did not stop it.
When I alone remained, I accepted the truth of my situation. Solitude offered the best chance of survival.
At least until you arrived.


  • Ah, my new partner! Let us see how long you last.
  • All mysteries will be revealed.
  • Do you feel the Maw tearing at your mind?
  • Find anything of interest, Maw Walker?
  • Have you come to trade or to waste your breath?
  • I have limitless time. You do not.
  • I trust you were not followed.
  • Just because I have infinite time does not mean I have infinite patience.
  • Long have I observed the Mawsworn torture their victims. Perhaps you want a demonstration?
  • You know, not all of my previous associates met their end at the Jailer's hands.
  • Discover more secrets. Then we can talk.
  • Do not draw the Jailer's eye.
  • I will detain you no longer.
  • Procure something of value.
  • Return only if you must.
  • Trust not what you see in the Maw.
  • Will that be all, Maw Walker?


  • Oh, you've returned. How fortuitous.
  • Please tell me you have something interesting to discuss, Maw Walker.
  • You were not followed, were you?
In Korthia and the Rift

It is preferable when an investment pays off.
