The Ancient darkspawn is a very old hurlock which appears during An Admirable Topsider quest. It has donned incredibly durable armor and has hit points rivalling the equivalent level of a drake. It can be located within the Dead Trenches.

Notes Edit

  • You can find the hilt and pommel before the quest is fully active. However, the Ancient darkspawn will not appear until you have both other pieces and visited the Warrior's Grave in the Ortan Thaig.
  • The spell combination Storm of the Century is very effective at reducing the health of the Ancient darkspawn, especially if another spell can ensure it remains within the area of effect (e.g. earthquake).
  • The player can lead this darkspawn to the Legion of the Dead company and they will aid in killing the creature.
