Objectives Edit

Bring the Translated Letter to Lord Ello Ebonlocke.

Description Edit

Oh my! If what is written on this note is true, then Abercrombie's done something...unspeakable.

You better bring the translated note back to Ello.

And do so quickly, for I fear a doom already lumbers toward our town...

Progress Edit

Ah, is the note translated? Please, let me see it...

Completion Edit

<Ello reads the letter...and his face goes white. He then looks at you...>

Although the aid you gave Abercrombie may have been motivated from kindness, your actions have doomed our town.

<Ello becomes lost in his thoughts...>

Gains Edit

Upon completion of this quest you will gain:

Notes Edit

  • Completing this quest sets in motion the monster known as Combat Stitches, who approaches along the road from Raven Hill Cemetery to Darkshire, pausing along the way to kill the guards who oppose it. Only one Stitches NPC spawns at a time; if he is already spawned from a previous completion and has not died yet, he will not be spawned upon completion of the quest, but the guards still talk as if he was about to appear.
  • As of Cataclysm Cataclysm, Abercombie now rides on Combat Stitches' shoulders[citation needed] coming south from the road leading up to Beggar's Haunt instead of north from the road leading to Raven Hill. The whole town of Darkshire seems to be abandoned except for a few guards attacking the creature and most of the buildings are on fire during the entire quest.

Trivia Edit

After completing the quest, the hole town is all of a sudden restored like it was before and there's no mention of any rebuilding of the town or anything like that by anyone afterwards.
