So…The stoic adventurers have found their way down to my lair.

Davaeorn is a Neutral Evil human mage working for the Iron Throne. He is in command of the operation at the Cloakwood Mines. He is a boss and must be defeated to advance to Chapter 5 of the main quest. He gives orders to Tazok and takes his orders from Rieltar Anchev.

Why have you come? Is it to steal my riches or perhaps you seek to righteously punish me for my affront to your morality. It matters little for you will do neither. Before I dispose of you in some horribly gruesome manner, perhaps I should introduce myself, I am known as Davaeorn. I would ask you for your names, but I care little to become acquainted with the dead.

The spells he can use make him an opponent which should not be underestimated. Upon meeting him for the first time, he already has two spells active: Protection from Normal Missiles and Mirror Image. As the fight begins, he casts Dimension Door on himself, then turns to offensive spells, including:

Die, insolent whelps!

This character has many unique enchanted items, such as the Robe of the Evil Archmagi and the Bracers to the Death. He will also drop the Key to River Plug, which is necessary to flood the mines.


  • According to his brother, Davaeorn murdered their father. His brother is in the area of the north of the Lighthouse.
  • As Davaeorn's dialogue reveals, the chest in his bedroom, that's locked with difficulty 90, originally should contain the Key to River Plug – the quest item necessary to continue Flooding the Cloakwood Mine. Perhaps because of this high lock difficulty the developers had decided to put the key into Davaeorn's inventory instead:
    • [Charmed] As I have told you, I am the mighty magician Davaeorn! I serve Reiltar [sic] of the Iron Throne. It is my duty to keep this mine running at peak efficiency. This mine used to be in the possession of a clan of dwarves. They mined into the side of river, and most of the dwarves died in the ensuing flood. The Iron Throne has moved in and plugged the river with a magical seal. If anyone were to use the key I keep in my bedroom chest, they could open the seal and flood the mines. That would be a very bad disaster for the Iron Throne. Indeed, yes it would.
