Notes Edit

  • This quest is for evil-aligned characters only.
  • Good-aligned players should look at Peaceful Prison Break instead.


  1. Speak with Tychus Zeksworn (98,-37,-571, near Deathfist Citadel). You will automatically zone into the arena where your next step is to win your first match.
  2. Open the doors and enter into main arena and bang the gong to begin (you must click the gong for each round).
  3. Win the next five rounds against progressively harder opponents.
  4. Defeat the Champion of War, Gurgorg the Carver.
  5. Exit the arena and return to Tychus Zeksworn for your reward.
