Uh, that was a hard quest !
But we didn't know it would be that hard in the first place !

I'll never do that at level 10 on elite difficulty again !
Or at least I'll try not to The end reward is very good indeed, but we had so many losses I looked at the log and it listed "31 deaths! So many ? But yes, this looks reasonable, especially considering the end-fight

I still feel some kind of angry over myself that I had died so often.
But on the other hand, I really didn't know much about what to expect, even after looking at the Wiki. What surprised (and worried) me was that I had some great difficulties in turning thoe Black-Bone Skeletons at all !

I neither got the Planar Gird (Grid ? ) nor the Chaos Guard bracers, only the Sign Of Xoriat. Well, that's better than nothing for me, but I need to give it another toon, because my Cleric is Neutral Good.

I went to sleep around 5 in the morning. Had I known that XX (Xorian Xipher) would take that long, I wouldn't have joined - but I was curious and didn't know what to expect. I really thought to be of better help (well, at least I brought some skeletons down, in old-fashioned close combat).

So, all in all, my memory of this quest is quite mixed. I wouldn't want to do it very often again. It's clearly one of my least favourite quests now - despite its great layout, design, and reward.

XX at least has both good XP and good rewards, too.
