Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Chieftain Grimmstal holds his future "wife" hostage

Near the Ashen Road Wayshrine (map), Valdam Andoren will say "My apprentice thinks he's the arch-mage of a college." and tell you of how his apprentice Denthis Romori transformed his brother Dithis into a female goblin, resulting in him being kidnapped by the Shadowsilk Goblin Tribe as a wife for their leader, Chieftain Grimmstal. He gives you the Shadowsilk Gem, a disguise that turns you into a goblin and cause the members of the tribe (besides the Spider sentries) to not notice you.

You must go to the Shadowsilk Goblin Camp and kill Chieftain Grimmstal, then speak to the tied-up Dithis. He will thank you for saving him and run back to the Wayshrine. You must then return to Valdam Andoren, who thanks you for help and rewards you with a set of gloves and some gold. He notes that he will keep Dithis as a goblin for a few more days to learn his lesson, and allows you to keep the Shadowsilk Gem.


  • The Shadowsilk Goblin mount animation issue was first reported as fixed on Patch 1.3.5
