Unlocking the quest
You need to get your Necromancer to level 25 first. Only then Call of the Underworld quest will appear in Priority Quest tab.
Start by visiting Shrine of Rathma - activate quest tracking so you find the location easily. The shrine is north-west from Kyovashad. After interacting with the shrine, talk to Maltorius - the master necromancer.
Collecting Unbroken Bone
Unbroken Bone, getting of which is your next objective, can be looted from skeletons appearing nearby the Shrine of Rathma. Your task is to get as much as 12 Unbroken Bones.
Finding the cave with the artifact
Another objective, Vile Artifact, can be found in Bitter Cave which is west from Menestad.
Opening the Jar of Souls
The artifact you're found, Jar of Souls, has to be filled with the souls of the opponents - defeat the monsters that appear in the cave until the red bar is full.
Maltorius will appear in the cave - talk to him again.
Assigning golem summoning to the action bar
This concludes the quest, but you still need to assign golem summoning to the action bar.
- If you're playing on PC, press the S key.
- If you are playing on a console or on a gamepad, press the Options button, go to the Abilities tab and press the left analog stick. The menu for assigning skills to buttons will be displayed.
The golem icon is at the bottom and needs to be assigned to one of the action bar slots, so you'll have to remove some other ability. Skeletons and golems are summoned with separate buttons.
From now on, you can summon a golem to follow the necromancer and help in battles. You can have both skeletons and golems summoned at the same time (different abilities).
In the Book of the Dead, you can modify the golem properties and select other golem variants. Initially, only the Bone Golem is available. Further Blood and Iron variations can be unlocked at levels 28 and 32.
