Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - The Legend of Dead Kel


The Legend of Dead Kel was the first set of DLC to be released for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. It was released on March 20, 2012 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Origin and Steam.

The Legend of Dead Kel takes players to Gallows End, a mysterious island that holds a brand new quest line, multiple side quests, a type of dungeon called "Dverga Fastings," three Twists of Fate, and a handful of previously unseen armor and weapons. The Fateless One also has access to Gravehal Keep - an estate housing a number of backstory-laden characters - as well as new shrines and Trainers.


Once the Fateless One departs for Gallows End there is no returning to the mainland until the Dark Harbor quest is finished!

The items in The Legend of Dead Kel, similarly to other DLC items, have level-based stats. This means that stats (armor, damage) and requirements are generated based on the Fateless One's level when the item is first acquired.





  • The chests in Gallows End respawn with the same contents after a time. Chests that had random loot are filled with new items, while scripted chests contain the same loot. This can lead to duplicates of certain items, e.g. parts of the Privateer's Armor Set.
    • Whenever chests respawn, the Fateless One's current level is taken into account. This can provide a source of gear appropriate for every level.
  • In Akara-Tor, during The Exiles, the chosen companion may not move, meaning that they will not assist in battles and only return to the players side when the player is too far away. This can turn into a game-breaking bug as the player will escape the cavern without the companion, leaving the player unable to finish the quest and leave the area. The same thing can happen if the companion is killed during the mission. It is therefore highly recommended to make a separate save file before entering Akara-Tor as a precaution.
  • The initial quest may fail to activate upon loading the game. This can be fixed by fast-travelling to Allestar Tower and then walking to Gorhart. There is a trigger point next to the first lorestone for downloadable content that will add the quest to your journal.
  • Fate Doors may not always open when entering reckoning mode. Make a save file before accessing Gallows End.
