Tower of Despair

From DDO Compendium

The Tower of Despair dominates the Devil Battlefield, acting both as a command center for Devil operations throughout Shavarath, and a potent symbol of Devil power and authority.


Uloth has heard from the traitor that they are convinced that First General Horoth is vulnerable and now is the time to strike. He has ordered a secret tunnel to be left open for you at the base of the Tower of Despair. Gather a raid, break in through the caves, and meet this Devil turncoat. He will open the way for you so that you may kill Horoth and redress the balance of power upon the Plane.
