This is the second task in a series of six. The tasks must be completed in order, and may be repeated after completion.

Upon completing the previous task:

Akins says 'By the dragons! You startled me. I've been on edge lately, most definitely. It is not an easy thing to be so infatuated with ghosts and spirits and be completely petrified by them at the same time. I have uncovered some knowledge of a [spirit] in Crescent Reach that warrants closer investigation . . . the only problem is I'm too terrified to do it!'

You say, 'What spirit?'

Akins says 'His name is Gekkdar, the old ogre chief that once ruled over the ogres that lived in this city -- when it was called Nokk. Long ago when the gods cursed his race, he was protected by a shaman's magic. He killed himself before the curse could fully drain his intellect. Now he is bound here through the shaman's magic and will not rest. I want to see what binds him here. Perhaps the spirit carries something. Go [find] him! We will learn together.'

You say, 'I will find him'

You have been assigned the task 'Things Go Bump in the Night: The Ogre's Spirit'.

Akins says 'Hurry now. I'm sure there are many others who would love to get their hands on old ogre things.'

Head to the third level of the city, to the very last room with the big skeleton laying in a thrown. Talk to it, then kill it.

You've found the bones of Gekkdar - now give them a good shake and see if anything happens!

Your task 'Things Go Bump in the Night: The Ogre's Spirit' has been updated.

Gekkdar the Last Ogre Chief says 'Who is it that disturbs my slumber? Unless you are the [one] begone from this place of chiefs!'

You say, 'I am the one'

Gekkdar the Last Ogre Chief says 'Only a true heir of the Rockjaws or Thoots can [free] me from my torment. As long as the Amulet of Chieftains is mine, here I will remain. I wait here for the day that the heir comes to this place.'

You say, 'Free you?'

Gekkdar the Last Ogre Chief says 'Ancient magic binds me to this place. The magic of the Amulet of Chieftains must be passed from one Chief to the next. Only a true heir may take the Amulet. All others who touch the Amulet will surely die. Alas I died alone with no heir and am consigned to wait here. Now go or I shall rouse myself and you will feel my [wrath]!'

You say, 'Your wrath?'

Gekkdar the Last Ogre Chief says 'Do not tempt your fate little one! My patience with you is at an end. Go now or [die]!'

You say, 'Die!'

Gekkdar attacks.

You have slain Gekkdar the Last Ogre Chief!

Gekkdar the Last Ogre Chief staggers as a shadow pierces their soul.

You gain experience!!

Your task 'Things Go Bump in the Night: The Ogre's Spirit' has been updated.

The ogre chief is now freed and Akins appears pleased. The shifty look in his eye causes you to believe that perhaps he has plans for the Gekkdar's Haunt.

You receive 7 platinum.
You gain experience!!

You have successfully been granted your reward for: Things Go Bump in the Night: The Ogre's Spirit

This opens the next task in the series, available from Akins.

When I killed 15th Nokk mobs for Akins#1, a message in yellow says

Akins is utterly enthralled by your experiences and hopes you will learn more and listen to his tale of the spirit who haunts Crescent Reach when you grow stronger. [Mininum level require of 20]

ZAM says level 18, I dinged level 20 when Akin#1 was done, was not able to verify

May need someone to verify it in the future.

I completed this quest as a level 18 Shadowknight with a tier V healer mercenary and a level 9 pet.
I can lead you to the Dragon's Horde....

Then sit back and watch as He eats you.

The title of this page should be "'Things Go Bump in the Night: The Ogre's Spirit'" instead of "Bump in the Night: The Ogre's Spirit " Searching for the name of the quest failed and perhaps should be corrected.
laying on a throne

Just finished the quest... while Gekkdar does summon, he takes his sweet time doing so (probably 10 seconds in between summons) and seems to be perma-rooted also

When you '/say Die !' Gekkdar attacks. You have to kill the mob. He doesn't die because the toon does the 'die !' bit.

I used Philter of Unlife Awareness to get past all the undead guards, but you have to take it off to interact with Gekkdar.

So you need 2 of them, one to get in, and one to get back out. Of course, someone might want to take on all of the undead guards.

And the braziers to the left and right of his throne will burn your toon if you touch the flame. I don't see any damage mentioned in my log, but it does say this: 'You feel your skin burn.'

I didn't have to go back to Akins to receive the reward.

I had regeneration potion and skinspikes running during the combat.

The toon I used was a 28th Barbarian Shaman

details emailed to allakhzam.

The next character I took through this took 3-5 hp each time they were knocked back into the brazier by Gekkdar.

Loot the Ancient Jewelry Box behind the throne, in the pile of bones (/open the bones). Give to Librarian Hemfar as part of the Charm of Lore quest.

Sweet quest. Took me all of 31 seconds. And now I know what that pile of bones on the throne is for! yay ;)

Take the elevator up to the third floor. You will find the bones of Gekkdar in the furthest west part of the 3rd floor. The entrance to an amphitheater type room filled with undead is at -1250, -900. Gekkdar's throne is in the next room west at -1250, -225.

No idea how many hp's he has. 1100 hp nuke dropped him. lol

Not a bad ring. Hard to find a lev 5 ring that boosts more than 3 or 4 stats.
Watch out.
