This quest is part of the Defias Brotherhood quest chain.

This quest is about equally famous as the one preceeding it (where you apprehend the Defias Messenger).

Note that if someone else is doing this quest (or has recently), the Defias Traitor may not be at his usual location near the foot of Sentinel Hill.


Escort the Defias Traitor to the secret hideout of the Defias Brotherhood. Once the Defias Traitor shows you where VanCleef and his men are hiding out, return to Gryan Stoutmantle with the information.

Quest text

So Stoutmantle sends a scrawny <race> like you to protect me? Guess you'll have to do. Better bring some friends too.

You know the deal, right? You watch my back and I'll take you to the Defias hideout. But you better be close by my side. The Defias gang wants my head now. If they see me with you, they'll try to kill me.

Let me know when you and any friends you can round up are ready to go.




Most excellent, <name>! VanCleef is as good as ours now that we know where he is hiding.



This is a group quest not because there are any elite mobs you have to defeat, but because you have to keep the Defias Traitor alive while escorting him through the center of Moonbrook.

The Defias Traitor will take off fairly swiftly initially, going past the flight point to the road, and south then west along the road to Moonbrook. When he gets close to Moonbrook, he slows down considerably.

He proceeds down the center of town, past the fountain, and to the entrance of the mines (south of the fountain). Every Defias not in a building (and a select few that are in the buildings near the fountain) will aggro on him, or on you. If Moonbrook is being heavily camped, most of these mobs should be absent. But if Moonbrook is empty, there will be more mobs than one person (or anything close to the appropriate level) can handle.
