Torment of Velious Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor



You can get this shared task from Yealdin Stormfell in The Eastern Wastes in the southeastern corner of the zone at -2394, -2373, -1, he is on the find tool (CTRL F).

You say, 'Hail, Yealdin Stormfell'

Yealdin Stormfell says, 'If you have come to threaten me there is no need. I have sworn to protect this place in exchange for refuge. The coldain have accepted my oath, as they should, and allow me to remain. As much as I might prefer to be out [seeking] my warband, I must remain here.'

You say, 'seeking'

Yealdin Stormfell says, 'I was separated from my soldiers when a horde of undead Ry'Gorr assaulted our fortress. I managed to fight my way out and was pursued here by a small group of monsters. In times like these it seems that even the oldest enemies must assist each other. The coldain aided me in defeating them and I have been here since. I am certain that my soldiers have held their posts and I would like to [assist them].'

You say, 'assist them'

Yealdin Stormfell says, 'It seems that if the coldain and I can remain civil under the circumstances, perhaps I can trust you to aid me and go to the fort and assist my war band. We living must band together if we are to survive. If you can [aid] my soldiers and return them here, we will be better able to guard this place, which is important for all of us.'

You say, 'aid'

Yealdin Stormfell says, 'A reasonable decision. Go to the fortress and provide some assistance and certainly my soldiers will be able to escape.'

You have been assigned the task 'The Last of the Storm Boars'.




Yealdin Felstorm has dedicated himself to defending the coldain wall until whatever is causing the upheaval here. However, he was forced to leave some companions in the giant fortress and is now worried about them. He has asked you to see if you can find them and bring them here.

Head to the giant fort. Yealdin believes that his soldiers are still defending the fortress. He wants you to talk to them and bring them to him.


  1. Go to the giant fort and find where the Storm Boars are. 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    An enormous restless dead orc leaps into the room and attacks.

    Head to the building on the south and just inside, "a wandering corpse" (orc style monster) will spawn. Kill for task update.

    Your task 'The Last of the Storm Boars' has been updated.



  2. Find a clue about where the Storm Boars have gone 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Loot the Terse Note from the just-slain orc.

    Your task 'The Last of the Storm Boars' has been updated.



  3. Head to the great bridge 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Head east--just north of the Crystal Caverns zone line--towards the two Coldain huts.

    Around location: 382, -1757, -25, 3x "A wandering corpse" will spawn.

    Your task 'The Last of the Storm Boars' has been updated.



  4. Defeat the undead orcs 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Kill the three undead orcs that spawned.

    Your task 'The Last of the Storm Boars' has been updated.



  5. Pick up the insignia ring as it surely indicates that the Storm Boars came this way 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Loot an Insignia of the Storm Boar from a wandering corpse's corpse.



  6. Find the lost Storm Boars somewhere near the great bridge 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    3 wolfs and 2 giants will spawn under the south side of the bridge.



  7. Defeat the undead dire wolves surrounding the Storm Boars 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Kill the 3 wolves. The wolves can be singled pull without agroing one another.

    Your task 'The Last of the Storm Boars' has been updated.



  8. Defeat the Storm Boars and gather proof that you found them 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Kill the 2 giants.
    Loot an Insignia of the Storm Boar from a storm boar soldier's corpse.

    Your task 'The Last of the Storm Boars' has been updated.



  9. Deliver 1 Terse Note to Yealdin 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Yealdin Stormfell says, 'Their plan makes some tactical sense, as expected. Did you eventually find them?'

    Your task 'The Last of the Storm Boars' has been updated.



  10. Deliver 2 Insignia of the Storm Boar to Yealdin 0/2 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Yealdin Stormfell says, 'Please, tell me what happened to my soldiers. It is important to me to know what their fate was.'

    Your task 'The Last of the Storm Boars' has been updated.



  11. Tell Yealdin what happened to his soldiers 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    You say, 'The soldiers are dead.'

    Yealdin Stormfell hardens his face, 'There was nothing to be done if they were already dead. Certainly they died a worthy death with many corpses piled around them. I thank you for this information.'

First part

For the first part, it seems the quest wont update unless you kill the orc inside of the hut, the south one. *SEE-CORRECTION-BELOW* I was able to move up with IVU to the giant next to the orc without aggroing anything but the giant and orc*ENDNOTE*, killed both and looted the paper, though before the end of the fight one of the other giants aggroed, dunno how, maybe i moved a bit.

Solo or small group run-through: *CORRECTION > if you can calm, the above about not aggroing the giants int he hut can be true, but you'll probably aggro a bunch of them.

Task: say 'aid' to Yealdin Stormfell at Entrance

Step1: Head to the giant fort, at the south hut, with IVU nothing will aggro (like most or all of the zone) If you position yourself against the wall between the orc and the closest giant near him, you can use a calm spell on the other two giants (WIth a necro the aa works) , then Fight the Giant near the orc solo. After that, kill the orc and loot the item.
If you can't calm them, most likely a bunch will aggro, unless you can find a good position (if that's possible). Pulling the orc outside de-spawned it once for me, so I don't know if that's a possibility.
There's also a chance of wanderers aggroing you from behind the hut's walls.

Step2: Head to around /loc 1275. -1085 , 3 orcs should just popup where the task updates. If you have IVU, they won't aggro. Use whatever tactics needed to split or offt-ank, or whatever, to kill them until the item needed drops. If the item drops off the first or second, you can proceed to step 3. The Necro undead calm AA or spell, or a super low radius calm/undead calm makes it easy to pull one at a time.

Step3: This is more difficult solo (though I'm only at around 20k aa's), since the last two you need to kill aren't undead.
Make your way to /loc -199 , -2484 and 3 undead wolves will spawn at the bridge along with two Stormboar Giants (a bit south and under the bridge). You have to defeat the wolves first to be able to attack the giants. There is a timer where the Giants will despawn, which will lead you to need to drop and re-do the task, since I just attempted this and got my merc killed twice after the wolves, i'd think a round 15-20 minutes.

Since there's wandering skeletons close, it's easiest to pull the wolves to under the bridge. They summon but can be snared, can be calmed.
The Stormboars can be snared, but summon, are not undead. If you can kill them and loot, you can move on to the next steps, which are the turn in and text says.

Task stuck

I’m stuck on step 6 of this task. I found the wolves & giants & combed the area throughly for the trigger spot for the update but can’t find it. I’ve went on to kill the wolves, which updated the next step in the quest (still hidden by ?????? marks). I then killed the giants & looted the insignia but no update. Tried giving the hand in’s to the quest giver but he will not accept them yet. Also tried killing the mobs with no pets or DoT’s as someone suggested. I’ve dropped & redid this quest up to this spot 4 times now. Anyone else stuck here or know where the update spot is? Thanks
3 wolves 2 giants step

I got to the step where you spawn 3 wolves and 2 giants, and got overwhelmed with skelly adds. I should of read these comments before I did it but to save you some grief fight the wolves under the bridge until the giants become active and you can get away with not getting many skellies. I took too long to kill them and the giants despawned, but if you relog the mobs all spawn right again and you can continue with out having to restart.
BROKEN PATHING
# Mar 21 2020 at 4:40 AM Rating: Decent
Just ridiculous. The pathing is straight up broken at the giant fort. Pulling a mob out of the giant hut in nearly impossible. Mobs are straight up stuck in the wall and cannot exit the door. Be ready for all four mobs, try to run them out of the fort then fade, escape or whatever you can before you have a chance at single pulling the wandering corpse. Lame.

Looks like about 9:40 to kill the three wolves and two giants before despawn. Burn em down! Good luck!

You can maximise the time available before the giants despawn by delaying looting the first ring dropped by the orcs. Wait until your party is at the bridge and you've cleared all the pesky skeletons nearby. Once you loot the ring (can be done remotely if using advanced looting) the wolves and giants will pop.

If you should happen to fail in a step, ie. mob despawns, someone steals your mob etc., have someone in group log out and back in and then you can retrigger the spawn at the point in the quest you are in. I was able to do this for the first orc and the dire wolves and giants at the bridge. I didn't need to do it for the 3 orcs but I imagine it works the same. hope this helps.

I too had the storm boars despawn on my group while fighting them. I tried logging a player out and back in and it did not work. I gated everyone out of the zone, logged them all out and then back into the game, went back over to EW and the storm boar never did respawn. Sigh....

Unfortunately, I noticed as well that is was fixed with the last patch. I couldn't get it to work either. But I did pop all my dps mercs and used animals with full burn and was able to complete it now that it's not buggy. Try splitting the group into 2 groups with dps mercs. Mercs won't count as part of the task so you can keep 6 in if that's your makeup.

To update. I wasn't able to respawn the storm boars after all 3 dire wolves were killed and I got that quest update for them.

Edit: I have since been able to restart the spawn after completing the dire wolf phase by logging out and in. I didn't get credit of course for the giants because I used mercs and pets. Hope that gets fixed soon.

Full burn, no probs with named and this two giants depop while having both in aggro at two tanks...

WTF...

Worst quest ever, probably not, but twice now got to the bridge portion and no spawns, everything else worked up to that point, BS.

So after multiple attempts had only one work out of 6 tries.

Got quest solo and followed it through and the mobs popped no problems, taskadded group later.

For People having trouble getting the kill updates i think it is either pets or dots stopping the update from working correctly, straight melee without pets and every update worked correctly.

When you get to the last 2 giants, if you are too slow to kill them they will despawn, prob a bug.

Re: 'no dots' 'no pets' - this is the unhelpful urban legend kind of advice (I heard some guy say...) we get all the time in EQ. This quest is daybroke AF, but I've completed successfully using pets, dots AND pets + dots, so...
