Use the Half-Burnt Torch to get to the other side of the tunnel beneath Gilneas City.

Provided item: Inv torch lit [Half-Burnt Torch]


It's time to pack it in, <name>. Most of our people have made it through -- it's your turn now.

Take this torch, you're going to need it. The tunnel is full of nasty, knee-biting critters of the worst kind. Use it to keep them at bay.

Speak to Krennan on the other side.


You're here, <name>. Most everyone made it through, but now we're stuck here... surrounded by our own... dead!


You will receive:



  • Hop down the tunnel. Pet classes should put their pets on passive or dismiss them. Put the half-burnt torch on an action bar and start swinging. It works best to swing before any rats get too close to keep damage taken to a minimum. Don't stop running!
  • Generally speaking, players will not exit combat until they turn in the quest.
  • The cave can be skipped altogether by jumping off the ledge of the city, then swimming over to krennan. this does not alter the quest whatsoever, just a shortcut.
