Vahlokzin with Sai Sahan attacking

Vahlokzin is a grey Dragon who has made his lair in a dormant volcano near the coast of Southern Elsweyr. He stole the Horn of Ja'darri, willingly given by his brother, from the Dragonguard. He is able to use his roars to stir kwama into a violent frenzy which overwhelmed and killed the Dragonguard soldiers sent to retrieve the horn and still act as his defenders.

Quest-Related Events[edit]

When moving through the lair, Vahlokzin will taunt you and Sai as you progress and find Dragonguard Remains:

Vahlokzin: "Visitors? I have not entertained guests in untold centuries."
Sai Sahan: "You hide in the shadows, beast. Come fight us in the light!"
Vahlokzin: "You sound just like the Dragonguard who last graced these halls."
Sai Sahan: "The Dragonguard who sought the Horn of Ja'darri in ages past. May your light burn eternal, old warrior."
Vahlokzin: "You seek the horn of my cowardly brother? Pathetic. Like the Dragonguard before you, death will be your only reward!"
Sai Sahan: "The Horn of Ja'darri? Is that the horn of Vahlokzin's brother?"
Vahlokzin: "These pitiful Dragonguard found only death in Vahlokzin's lair!"
Sai Sahan: "Stay alert. I fear the beast lays a trap for us."

Once you reach the end of the kwama-infested ruins, Vahlokzin will fly through a hole in the cavern roof and roar, causing the kwama to frenzy and attack you.

Perched on a temple wall

After you retrieve the Horn from the summit, Vahlokin will arrive to stop you.

Sai Sahan: "We have reclaimed the Horn of Ja'darri!"
Vahlokzin: "A Dragon's horn, willingly given. Pity I don't share my brother's sentiment."
Sai Sahan: "The beast attacks! To arms!"

During combat:

Vahlokzin: "Stir, wretched kwama! Kill those who dare defy me!"
Vahlokzin: "No, the horn is mine!"

Skills and Abilities[edit]

During combat, he will summon Kwama swarms to fight you, though when he is grounded by the Horn of Ja'darri, he will be forced to attack you personally. After the first time the horn is used on him, he will pelt the surronding with fireballs along with the kwama.

  • Vahlokzin can either be translated from Dragon Language as Spring-Rise/Sky-Honor (vah-lok-zin), or Guardian-Honor (vahlok-zin). Later during The Dragon's Lair, Nahfahlaar stresses his name as Vah-lok-zin, hinting that it's the former meaning.
  • He shares the same gray model as generic flame dragons in Northern Elsweyr.
