    Short Description

    Abbott Germet wants you to locate Cealhaidh the Corrupter among the Aelfwar Elves of the Palisades, and then bind the changeling in a circle of ash.


    In our research we have found a name of a Fae changeling that matches what that fallen druid had described. Cealhaidh the Corrupter is a faerie in the court of Twyl who has brought many mortal nobles to ruin. Go to the Elven Palisades and touch this cold iron bar to the Aelfwar Elves, it will reveal the changeling. Bind him in a circle of ash before you destroy him and his spirit will have nowhere to go but into this crystal vial. Bring it back here to Sanctum and we will extract the truth.

    Completion Text

    Cealhaidh is not some minor faerie or flattering courtesan of Twyl's court. He is a powerful and crafty creature who has had all of creation to perfect his art. The gods have truly blessed you with skill and power for what you have accomplished. But now he is on holy ground, and once we find what he knows, there will be no escape.

    So i did this quest at lvl 43 and man I felt confused doing it.

    First off, it can take quite a while to get Cealhaidh to appear. I killed probably a good 30 aelfwars trying to find him, and the satyr-looking dudes do not count toward finding him.

    I finally found him by using the Cold-Touched Iron on an Aelfwar Invoker towards the back of Palisade.

    When Cealhaidh appears, the item to bind him will appear and replace the spot that the iron had. Bind him and then kill him. You loot his spirit off his corpse.

    A group is recommended for Cealhaidh if you are in the low 30's (I did this as 31 tank warrior with a 49 dps warrior). He hits hard, and has a lot of health.

    The location posted above (6181, 2605), is inside the Elven Palisades. Just as good as any other coordinates for that area. What you are looking for is an Aelfwar mob. Use the Cold Iron Bar on any mob that has the appropriate quest listed on mouse over. Have the binding dust from your inventory on a hot bar slot, as your quest on the screen will not update the 'use' item to the dust when the Cold Iron Bar use is successful.

    Please note that you may be interrupted, so continue to apply the Cold Iron Bar to the mob until he either receives a debuff stating you have already applied the bar (i.e... kill this mob), or it turns into Cealhaidh. Get Cealhaidh down to <30% health before using the dust of binding. The binding circle is on a timer, so if the effect disappears before Cealhaidh is killed, then you will not get credit, and you will have to find another mob to apply the Cold Iron Bar to. This happened to me twice.

    **How To Complete This Quest**

    1) Enter the Palisade.
    2) Use Cold Iron on Aelfwar Invokers and Aelfwar Exemplars.
    3) When one changes into Cealhaidh, damage him down to where you think you can kill him within 10 seconds.
    4) Use Ash of Binding then target the large area of effect right on top of Cealhaidh.
    5) Kill Cealhaidh before the ring effect disappears.

    Important: Make sure you cast the Ash of Binding on him before you kill him but not until he is about dead. Cast it to soon or to late and you have to start over.


    -Aelfwar Adherents do not count so don't waste your time.
    -Chances are random on how many Aelfwar you will have to use the cold iron on for him to spawn. I completed the quest 3 times and it took 20 enemies the first time, then next time I got him on my very first one.
    -He has over 3000 HP and hits fairly hard so might be difficult for a lower level to complete solo.
    -The quest will allow you to cast the ash of binding on his corpse and will give you credit but you will have no way to loot his spirit unless he dies with the ring around him.

    This shows exactly how to do the quest.

    You may have to kill alot of them. I cleared almost the entire compound before finding him

    What a horrible, horrible quest..
    First the prequest took me until level 50 to actually get a Cinderon spawn, and then I do this quest and had to use the Cold Iron on every single Aelfwar in the Palisades and then start killing them off in order to get respawns to use it on a few more.

    Tried on two of his spawns now, and cannot make his spirit get in the empty vial. Am I missing something here? Tried clicking the vial while he was still alive, and after death and neither time did I get the update.

    This quest is not bugged, I rather say strangely designed. I tried using the ashes after I killed Caelhaidh, but only got the credit for using it. So what to do for his soul?

    Find him again, use your quest item (not the vial) at <30% if you are level 50 and then kill him off, loot the soul and there you go.

    This quest is bugged. I did all the right things and could not get the ash to go into the bottle. I killed him 4 or 5 times, used the binding, etc. and it did not work for me. July 2, 2011

    Once you find him:

    Use the ash quest item (will put an AoE target that you have to click on the ground where he is standing). THEN kill him, soul loot window popped up when he died, was also able to loot corpse afterwards for coin/etc.
