Quest-Related Events[edit]

When you and Aeliah Renmus finally find Yahgrondu, Laatvulon is trying to convince Yahgrondu to swear his allegiance to Laatvulon and his cult.

Laatvulon: "Join me, brother. My master's power is limitless and he will share it with his devoted."
Yahgrondu: "I will die before I bow to you or your master, Laatvulon."
Laatvulon: "If you insist."
Aeliah Renmus: "Laatvulon! And the other Dragon ... is that Yahgrondu?"

Laatvulon kills Yahgrondu before you can reach him. When he notices your intrusion, Laatvulon commands Ra'khajin to raise Yahgrondu's corpse. You must kill Yahgrondu to progress. Two New Moon Pyromancers and a New Moon Dreadnaught accompany him in the beginning of the fight.

Ra'khajin: "Persistent fools! Soon all of Elsweyr will bow to my master. You will serve Laatvulon—if not in life, then in death!"
