This solo task is the first of two such tasks that begin with Rodrick Cleanheart at location -170, -320, -25 in the Cooling Chamber.

You say, 'Hail, Rodrick Cleanheart'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'Greetings _____. I am pleased to see you, although my heart is [heavy].'

You say, 'Why is your heart is heavy?'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'Everyone around you has a story to tell, _____, and I am no different. My tale, however, is full of [glory] and the favor of Brell. My spirit was shaped by a life lived behind the keen edge of the blade of Justice, and undead horrors from all corners of Norrath learned to tremble at the sound of my boots.'

You say, 'Glory?'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'Aye, glory! I've campfire tales a'plenty I could share, young one, but the days are too [dark] for boastful tales of victory. I'll tell no tales, at least not while these halls are filled with the shuffling steps of death.'

You say, 'Too dark?'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'Dark indeed, _____, dark days indeed! In flat contradiction of the will of my Lord Brell, the dead roam these halls! My stomach turns just to think of it. Any hour I can spare from my post finds me in the depths, blade in hand, vanquishing the dead as I can. But it never seems to be [enough] - each abomination slain is replaced by two more the next day. It's getting worse, _____.'

You say, 'What's enough?'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'My blade will never be enough, I know that now. Will you [help] me?'

You say, 'I'll help'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'Praise be to Brell! None of these other sheep will raise so much as an axe, so focused are they on the temperature of the waters. Fah, I say! What does that matter in the face of a Banshee? But enough of that, let's get to business, _____. We must find the [source] if we are to have any chance at stopping this threat.'

You say, 'The source?'

Rodrick Cleanheart says 'Journey to the depths of the Chamber and destroy the dead. As you kill them search for a clue that will tell us who the Master is. Once we know that we can resolve this situation.'

You have been assigned the task 'Investigate the Dead'.

Rodrick Cleanheart, the noble paladin, has enlisted you in the effort to cleanse the Cooling Chamber of the undead infestation. Destroy any undead you encounter and search the corpses for any clues or items of power that might be on them that might point towards the Master of this infestation.

Find a Clue! 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)

Find a Clue! 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)

Find a Clue! 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)

Almost half the zone (in the deepest part, beyond the main hallways) is full of undead creatures. They drop items called "Amulet Sliver X" where "X" can be I, II, III, IV, or V. These items update the above steps.

All are pre-lootable.

Assemble the amulet 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)

Click on any of the Amulet Slivers to produce "Restored Amulet".

Return to Rodrick and give him the Restored Amulet 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)

For all of the progression tasks, im finding that a chanter for cc is non negotiable. There are a lot of undead roamers at the bottom of the zone this is true.

Get the amulet
go kill undead
Loot 5 individual pices
right click them in your inventory
Return the amulet to rodrick

Wiz/Brd/War/1tank merc/2 healer mercs. can do this.

Set up camp just outside the undead area in that long hall with the one wondering traitor.

Enjoy killing single pulls. watch out for the rooting undead they are fun/suck.
not so bad

This is a great spot, but I have not seen the 2nd piece drop yet. My group has gotten 9 x I,III,IV,V without seeing the Amulet Sliver II. My gut feeling is that it was probably taken off the loot table of mobs in that area.

Clicking any one of the amulet peices will combine the 5 parts into a single amulet.

To assemble the amulet, put any one of the amulet slivers in an empty slot in and right click on it. Then turn it in to Rodrick.
