Talk to Sin in town about Maligaro.

"

- quest log

"

Judging by that rather curious ship and its aberrant captain, I imagine you had rather an interesting voyage here. Now, Maligaro, The Inquisitor … we must have his soul. He has most certainly returned to his old haunt, yet his manifestations are like wisps on the wind: there one moment, gone the next. While I am familiar with the phantasmal trails and tributaries that filigree this reality, Maligaro’s exact whereabouts eludes me.

Our brutal construction nears completion and now only the wretched Doedre Darktongue remains.

Unlike her compeers who, in undeath, have yearned for the familiar, Doedre appears drawn to the old wounds of calamity. The cataclysm took Sarn and left much that a parasite like Doedre might enjoy.

I shall meet you in Sarn, where I hope you shall make swift and bloody work of that foul hag.

"

One less twisted intellect perverting our world. There is still much to be done, but at least we can rest easier in the knowledge that Maligaro and his foul creations will trouble Wraeclast no longer. Here. I know that you and Greust didn’t see eye to eye, but I’m sure he would have wanted to recognize this deed. It’s the act of a warrior, after all.
