Obtained from

Mad King's Steward in Lion's Arch or Kamadan, Jewel of Istan


Access to Prophecies or Nightfall.



"There is nothing more I can do. Once Mad King Thorn has appeared in this world each Autumn, his power over the mortal realm begins to fade and he must return to his Mad Realm. As the Mad King's steward, I must return with my lord to make him pie and groom his invisible pony. Now all of Tyria must face the return of Dhuum. If you wish to hold back the coming night, seek out the Voice of Grenth and offer your assistance."
Accept: "It will be done. I shall speak with the Voice of Grenth."
Reject: "I've had my fill of the Underworld, thank you."

Intermediate Dialogue 1 (Voice of Grenth)

- before Dhuum escaped
"The Voice of Grenth hears and appreciates your offer of assistance, mortal. Stand ready; we may have need of your skills in the coming battle. We will summon you when the time comes."
- after Dhuum escaped
"The time is nigh. Dhuum stirs."

Intermediate Dialogue 2 (Reaper of the Labyrinth)

"Once again we meet, mortal. These are dark times. The minions of Dhuum rampage unchecked, and their ranks swell with every passing day. If they are not defeated, Dhuum's servants will overwhelm the Underworld. Herein lies the dilemma: the minions must be stopped, but each small victory over Dhuum's forces hastens the Ender of All's arrival. We Reapers need your help to battle the legions of Dhuum, but know that if you do our bidding and complete all the tasks laid before you, Dhuum will surely break free into the Underworld. It is a heavy responsibility we have laid upon your capable shoulders."

Reward Dialogue

"It is time, now is the hour of Dhuum. The pillars of the Underworld shake, and a great storm of death gathers! Prepare yourself, brave mortal, for Dhuum wakes. Gather your allies, for the battle for the fate of the Underworld is at a hand!"
