- 5 Heavy Old Tomes;
- 50 Pelvis Bones (Death Portal);
- 50 Marsh Stalker Feathers (Energy Portal);
- 50 Fish (Ice Portal);
- 50 Acorns (Earth Portal);
- 50 Incantation Notes (Holy Portal);
- 1 Phial of Fresh Water;
- 1 Reinvigorating Seeds;
- The New Frontier Quest completed including mission 9, Mortal Combat (for permission to use the Fire Portal);
- The Ice Islands Quest completed up to the The Contactman mission (for access to the Formorgar Mines);
- A team of up to 5 players to kill the bosses, and up to 15 players for the final boss.
Initially you will find an unfinished temple, which must be finished by giving enough Heavy Old Tomes to Albinius. These tomes are gotten from the Brass-Shod Chests which can be found in these locations:
- The basement of the tower next to Mount Sternum (here);
- A house outside the Mount Sternum Undead Cave (here);
- The Valkyrie shack north of Thais (here);
- On the way to the Orcs in the Ancient Temple (here);
- Below the White Flower Temple (here).
They can also be looted from certain creatures such Cyclops, various kinds of Orcs, Ghouls, Skeletons, and possibly others. Hand them to Albinius by saying "temple" and "yes" (he also buys Heavy Old Tomes for 30gp). He will take all the tomes you have in your backpack. After handing over 5 tomes, Albinius can restore the temple to its former glory and you will be able to use Imbuing Shrines.
- Note that you will only unlock the first two imbuing levels. The third is unlocked after finishing the quest.
When the temple is finished, the temple will contain six portals leading to six locations with eventually a boss monster to fight. These bosses must be killed to unlock the strongest Imbuing level. Furthermore these bosses drop pieces of an item with which you can tame a Stone Rhino (Mount). A character may only enter each boss room once every 20 hours.
Bane of the Cosmic Force - Energy Portal
Talk to Albinius about the "energy portal". He will ask for 50 Marsh Stalker Feathers. Give them to him and you will be able to enter the Energy Portal which takes you to the Replica Dungeon, here, initially filled with Iron Servant Replicas.
When you pull the left lever here a message will appear:
5 Diamond entities are consuming too much raw energy for the cosmic chamber to awaken, it will be put to rest again in 10 m.
Similarly when you pull the right lever here a message will appear:
5 Golden entities are consuming too much pure energy for the cosmic chamber to awaken, it will be put to rest again in 10 m.
The Iron Servant Replicas are joined by golden and diamond ones. Killing at least 5 Golden and 5 Diamond Servant Replicas within 10 minutes will cause a lava flow and a water flow to through the system, which if you follow leads to the center of the dungeon, here, where an Energy Gate will appear. Enter it and you will appear here in a room with 5 Stone Tiles and a lever. Stand on the tiles with your team of 1-5 players and pull the lever, to be teleported to the boss room here.
The cosmic energies in the chamber refocus on Lloyd!
At this moment you can kill one of the four cosmic energy prisms (from A to D). Then Lloyd will re-appear and you will have to kill him again. You will have to repeat this process until all 4 cosmic energy prisms are slain, then Lloyd can be stopped for good. Please note that there is a time limit (10 minutes) on the boss fight, after which you will be kicked from the room.
A good place to trap Lloyd is northeast of the Cosmic Energy Prism D, a wild growth rune can help to prevent him re-targeting. Another thing to note is, that it seems like he is using an attack that hits everyone who is close to someone else (animated with elictricity), if you stay away from each other, you might be able to avoid this hit.
If you want to kill Lloyd a second time you can do so 20 hours after you last killed him. To do that, you will have to kill 5 Golden Servant Replicas and 5 Diamond Servant Replicas again to be able to enter the Energy Gate, even if it's already opened. From now on the slain Servants won't be counted in your quest log anymore.
The Energy Gate itself will only appear if at least one person killed the Servants within the last 10 minutes after pulling the levers. You can kill the servants at any time in order to enter the Energy Gate. For example you can kill them on a Wednesday and enter the portal on a Saturday as long as you didn't kill Lloyd in between those days, and that somebody else has activated the Energy Gate.
After killing the boss, use the shrine in the west of the boss room to get the following Imbuements: Powerful Cloud Fabric (energy protection), Powerful Electrify (energy damage) and Powerful Swiftness (speed boost).
Circle of the Black Sphinx - Death Portal
Talk to Albinius about the "death portal". He will ask for 50 Pelvis Bones. Give them to him and enter the portal. When you enter the Death Portal you will find yourself in the Old Masonry located here, filled with Necromancers, Renegade Knights and Vicious Squires on the upper floors, and Astral Shapers on the lower floors.
Walk south-east and go down here. In a parchment called The Ghostsilver Lantern (Book) you will read the story about Zegrath and his Ghostsilver Lantern. Walk north-east here and go down. Walk east and go up here. Use the spider web (actually the floor before it) in the north-west corner of the room and you will receive a Ghostsilver Lantern. Walk north-east and enter a room through a Door (Iron Bars), a message will appear:
As you enter the room you hear a moaning sound. It seemingly comes from an old desk nearby.
In the middle of the room you will find an Old Desk. Use it and a message appears:
As you open the drawer a ghostly apparition shortly appears hovering over the desk. You find an old note inside the drawer..
You will receive an Old Note.
You have found a painting of a girl.
Take the picture back to the room with the Old Desk and use it with the old desk. A message will appear:
You put the portrait into the drawer and close it. The ghost appears again and you hear a jingling sound inside the drawer..
Use the old desk again, you will receive an Old Silver Key with the message:
You open the drawer again and find an old silver key that surely wasn't there before..
Walk east past the wall here and a message appears (if you do have the key):
In the light of the ghostsilver lantern you discover an otherwise invisible door. As you have the fitting key you can pass it.
From now on you can fight the boss. Bring your lantern and activate it, then use the wall to appear here. Walk though the teleporter to the pre-boss room here. Gather a team of 1-5 players, stand on the tiles and pull the lever to face the boss Lady Tenebris with her Shadow Tentacles.
If you change your mind and want to leave without fighting the boss, make sure your lantern is lit and use the wall to the north in the pre-boss room.
Initially, you'll have to deal with Lady Tenebris and Shadow Tentacles. When the tentacles are killed, Lady Tenebris will start to summon Shadow Fiends, which don't deal a lot of damage but paralyze you, for this stage you will need Great Fireball Runes, Waves and maybe Hell's Core. Keep on focusing Lady Tenebris and use your AoE damage to kill the Shadow Fiends.
From time to time Lady Tenebris will teleport the party into the middle of the room and after a few seconds she will cast an explosion around her that deals up to 2500 Death Damage. Players must be ready to absorb or block the death damage. It is wise to have a Stone Skin Amulet ready in a hotkey to equip it immediately after being teleported, this way the maximum damage will be reduced from 2500 to just 500 (even lower if equipped with other death reducing items like Death/Butterfly Ring or Moon Mirror).
Dragon in Distress - Ice Portal
Talk to Albinius about the "ice portal". He will ask for 50 Fish. Give them to him so you can enter the portal. Go through the Ice Portal, walk north-east down a hole and then follow the map to the right to the NPC A Dragon Mother. Talk to her saying: hi, assistance, yes. She will ask you to retrieve her stolen egg.
Then, walk back to the portal and walk here. Follow the path down until you reach a room with a teleport, enter it to find a room with a lever. Stand on the squares and pull the lever to enter the boss room.
Melting Frozen Horror
The blocker should challenge the Solid Frozen Horror while the rest of the team runs north to the Dragon Egg. There are two Icicle towers next to egg, keep a magic wall on each side active to prevent them from damaging the Dragon Egg as shown below. Attack the egg with fire damage attacks such as Great Fireball Runes and Flame Strike and the such will heal the egg. Don't use ice attacks because those will lower its health.
After some seconds Frozen Minions will spawn in the room. Since the minions' ice spells will heal the boss and damage the egg, it is suggested that a paladin blocks the minions, running around the room if necessary. The minions can be killed but will spawn again shortly. The Solid Frozen Horror should be kept away from the egg as it does an area spell that cancels magic walls and also can do ice waves.
Once the Dragon Egg's health is full, an orange message appears announcing that the boss is now vulnerable (The egg sends out a fiery eruption! Weakening the frozen horror significantly!). The boss will transform into a Melting Frozen Horror, quickly start attacking it (for the mages it is suggested to use Sudden Death Runes). After 20 seconds the boss becomes solid again at which point you have to heat the Egg again.
When the boss is defeated, a Baby Dragon (Creature) is born. Report back to A Dragon Mother, then leave her room but instead of going up, go around the cave and enter the Mystic Flame here. You'll arrive in a small dungeon with Twisted Shapers and Shaper Matriarchs. Use the shrine north-east to get the following imbuements: Powerful Quara Scale (ice protection), Powerful Frost (ice damage) and Powerful Blockade (shielding skillboost).
The Desecrated Glade - Earth Portal
Talk to Albinius and say "earth portal". He will ask for 50 Acorns. Give them to him and enter the portal. Go through the Earth Portal or walk to the Outlaw Camp and find NPC Weakened Forest Fury. Talk to her saying: hi, distress, yes. She will give you an Empty Birdcage.
The cave parrot may be tough but he somehow couldn't resist this particular birdcage. Or maybe it was you...
You open the cage and let the cave parrot roam free!
Repeat this process until you freed 3 parrots. Furthermore, try to loot some Reinvigorating Seeds (you only need one of these) from Orclops Ravagers. They need to be used on the Fertile Soil with the message:
You planted some seeds into the soil.
A phial of fresh pond water. It looks crystal clear and sparkles a little.
When you use it on the Growing Birch it will say:
The birch grows as you pour the sparkling water from the phial over it.
Enter the Mystic Flame which appeared in front of you and you will appear in a Tree Wall cave deep below Tiquanda, here. Walk north-west until you find a teleporter, here. Enter it to appear in a room with 5 Stone Tiles and a Lever. Stand on the stone tiles with a team of 1-5 players and pull the lever, to be teleported in the boss room a little to the west, which contains an Abandoned Imbuing Shrine in the west.
The Enraged Thorn Knight
When you enter the room 8 Possessed Trees will spawn, together with the Mounted Thorn Knight. There are also up to 4 Thorn Minions. When you kill these trees, they will turn into Unbound Blightwalker, Unbound Defiler, Unbound Demon Outcast or Unbound Demons. One way is to kill them one by one, because the thorn knight will take more damage afterwards. Another way is staying to the south and trying to avoid killing them.
The Mounted Thorn Knight has 3 phases which slightly differ. Phase 1: He summons Thorn Minions and sits on his mount. Phase 2: He turns into The Shielded Thorn Knight and his mount Thorn Steed, which has to be killed first. Phase 3: He turns into The Enraged Thorn Knight. All of them can be killed with fire damage, however death damage will heal them 10 times the intended damage (A SD rune hitting normally 500 will instead heal them 5000).
After killing him, use the shrine to get the following imbuements: Powerful Snake Skin (earth protection), Powerful Venom (earth damage), Powerful Slash (sword skillboost), Powerful Chop (axe skillboost) and Powerful Bash (club skillboost).
The Unwary Mage - Fire Portal
The area Ivalisse talks about is located behind the Fire Portal (you need to have completed the entire The New Frontier Quest to enter), which brings you to northern Zao here. East of the building you can go up with a ladder, walk north over a Bridge and enter the Temple Complex (Dark Cave Entrance) here.
Walk south past some Mutated Bats and Mutated Tigers and go west through a Lizard area where you face all kinds of High Class Lizards. Walk until you can go down one floor and walk north-east. Eventually you will find a room with A Strange Chalice, here. This is of course a disguised Silus, the father of Ivalisse.
Talk to him saying hi, chalice, daughter, story, disguised, thirsty, learned. From him you will learn the password to enter the teleporter in the Temple Complex, which is zzubaran.
Gather between 1 and 5 people so you can kill the Soul of Dragonking Zyrtarch. If a group enters the room you can't enter it. If you exit the boss room during the fight you can't enter it right away again.
Soul of Dragonking Zyrtarch
In the room you will find 4 Soulcatchers, Dragon Servants and (an immortal) Dragonking Zyrtarch. The knight should stay in the middle and keep the Dragonking away from the Soulcatcher, because they will heal him otherwise (?). The rest of the team has to attack the Soulcatchers with damage over time like Inflict Wound, Curse, Electrify, Envenom,Holy Flash, Ignite or Soulfire (Soulcatchers are not immune to Fire, unlike the other creatures during the fight, runes are recommended because you'll have to wait the spells' Cooldown otherwise) until 3 Corrupted Souls spawned. The team has to kill them all on the same spot to create a portal (first green, then purple, then red). When the portal turns red, the team has to jump into it and the knight has to lure the Dragonking in it as well.
In the next room you will face two Dragon Wraths and the Dragonking becomes mortal. Use Energy Bombs, to keep the Dragon Wraths away from the party and strong attacks such as Sudden Death Runes the Dragonking until you get teleported to the previous room, where you have to repeat this procedure until the Dragonking dies. You have a limit of 17 minutes to kill this boss.
After killing the boss, use the Abandoned Imbuing Shrine north of the room and report back to Ivalisse to unlock the following imbuements: Powerful Dragon Hide (fire protection), Powerful Scorch (fire damage) and Powerful Void (mana leech).
Time is a Window - Holy Portal
Talk to Albinius and say "holy portal". He will ask for 50 Incantation Notes. Give them to him and enter the portal. Entering the Holy Portal takes you to the Astral Shaper Dungeon, deep below Tiquanda. You will enter the dungeon here. Walk east, while you encounter Twisted Shapers and Broken Shapers, and enter a Time Machine located here, which teleports you here with a message:
The mechanism takes you back in time.
Note: When you use the time machine, the only way to exit is by defeating The Time Guardian, or you can just use the exit teleport in the boss room.
This floor contains no creatures, but a teleporter to the north, here. Enter it and you will appear here, in a room with a sign saying "Room of Cleansing", an Old Machine. Use the old machine to receive an Imbuing Crystal.
The Time Guardian
This is a very dynamic fight, the boss alternates between 3 forms. Shooters are usually safe if 2 blockers trap the boss in one corner and avoid the beams and waves from the boss. The main source of damage from the boss is Fire and Physical damage, with minimum income of Death Damage. Blockers are recomended to wear mainly Physical and Fire protection, the boss can hit up to ~1200 to 1300 Physical Damage and up to ~900 Fire damage, while only ~300 Death Damage.
Time Guardian is strong against every element, just deal damage to him in this form. Physical damage is recommended. Mages are best to use Explosion Runes.
The Freezing Time Guardian is weak against Fire Damage and gets healed by Ice Damage. If you deal enough damage in this form, he will summon a Lost Time, which you will need to get rid of the Time Waster. Just kill the Lost Time and use the corpse (by using it) with a living Time Waster. In this stage it will NOT inflict Ice Damage to the players, one of his waves still causes Fire Damage. It's good to use Great Fireball Runes. Sorcerers should use Great Fire Wave and Strong Flame Strike. Hell's Core is usually not needed and can be counterproductive because of the long attack cooldown.
The Blazing Time Guardian is weak against Ice Damage and gets healed by Fire Damage. Depending on the amount of damage he takes in this form, he will summon Time Wasters, which are immortal and deal a decent amount of damage. Do deal more ice damage than fire damage, otherwise there will be too many Time Wasters.
In general the team has to keep an eye on the Time Guardian changing his form and react appropriate. To summarize the strategy: you want to deal as much physical damage as possible on The Time Guardian, as much fire damage as possible on The Freezing Time Guardian (the more Lost Time spawn, the better) and don't overdo ice damage on The Blazing Time Guardian (so you always have enough corpses from Lost Time to get rid of the spawning Time Wasters). Killing the Time Keepers with area damage from time to time will help to lower the incoming damage, but is usually not needed as they will keep respawning. Energy protection is very usefull for that aswell.
After killing the boss, use the shrine outside the boss room and east of the Time Machine's entrance, here, to get the following imbuements: Powerful Demon Presence (holy protection) and Powerful Precision (distance skill boost).
Final Fight - The Last Lore Keeper
You will meet various Astral Shapers. Walk south and go down the hole here. Walk north-west and go down some stairs here. Walk east until you find some Stone Rhinos and a Mystic Flame, here. Enter the teleporter and you fill travel to a room located here. Walk in the teleporter to get in a room with 15 Stone Tiles and a lever. Get your team of 1-15 people on the tiles and pull the lever to enter the boss room. About battle recommendations, Paladins should Use Holy Damage on the four main enemies (4 Bound Astral Powers, The Astral Source, An Astral Glyph and The Last Lore Keeper), it deals 100% of the damage. Knights are advised to bring an Energy dealing weapon (Gnome Sword/Falcon Battleaxe/Falcon Mace or Soulmaimer if available) or less preferable any powerful energy imbued weapon, as all enemies are strong against Physical Damage. Finally, Mages should use SDs against the Bound Astral Powers, and should prefer energy based attacks as The Astral Source is weak to it and both An Astral Glyph and The Last Lore Keeper are not as strong to energy. Also, for UEs, Sorcerers of course should prefer Rage of the Skies and Druids Wrath of Nature (almost everything is strong to Ice) while cleaning the room of lesser enemies or racking up damage.
The secret to completing this fight successfully is executing the mechanics very precisely, otherwise you'll run out of time very quickly. Once you enter the room, the Astral Glyph starts to gather energy that will expel you from the room. To prevent that, you have to kill the Bound Astral Powers so you have enough time to weaken the Source and kill the Glyph. Once the Bound Astral Powers respawn, you'll have to kill them again otherwise the Source will gather more energy and kick you out. Once The Astral Source is in black HP (it won't die), it will stop gathering energy and you won't have to deal with Bound Astral Powers anymore. The recommended strategy is the following:
Astral Powers #1
Entering the room a message will appear:
The Astral Glyph begins to draw upon bound astral power to expel you from the room!
The boss room contains four green vortices in its corners leading to smaller side rooms, each one with one Bound Astral Powers and possibly a couple Animated Swords. After pulling the lever, the team should move to one of the vortices and start attacking the Astral Power in it. Shooters can use SDs to greatly increase the damage. When it's in red HP, all the team members but one player should leave the room and proceed to the next Astral Power. When the second Astral Power reaches approximately 40% health, the player that stayed behind should finish off the first one. The same strategy should be employed with the second and third Powers, whereas the final Power should be killed immediately.
Upon killing an Astral Power, the following message appears: The destruction of the power source gained you more time until the glyph is powered up!
The Astral Source #1
Once all 4 Powers are dead, the team must gather in the main room and start attacking The Astral Source, be careful with the Drown Wave from The Astral source,it deals great Physical Damage. When it reaches black HP it will become The Distorted Astral Source (Your damage distorted the source and prevents the Glyph to draw its power!) and A Shielded Astral Glyph will become just An Astral Glyph (Without the power of the source, the Glyph loses its protection!). When this happens, start attacking the Glyph and the Source at the same time, so the Source doesn't heal back.
Astral Powers #2
Between 2 to 2.5 minutes after you returned to the main room, the Bound Astral Powers will start to respawn. A team member should be checking the room where the first Power was killed and call the team in when it respawns. Once this happens, the same rotation as before must be performed: leave it in red HP with a shooter, move to the next one and kill the previous Power when the HP of the one being attacked reaches about 40%.
The Astral Source #2
Back in the main room, the Astral Source will have healed a bit and the Glyph will be shielded again (Drawing upon the power of the source, the Glyph becomes shielded again!). Repeat the same process as before to remove the shield and cause damage to the Glyph. This time around you should have enough time to kill the Astral Glyph, which will make The Last Lore Keeper appear.
Last Lore Keeper
Getting to this stage is the hardest part of the boss fight. Once the Lore Keeper spawns, you won't have to deal with the Source or Powers anymore. Just trap it somewhere in the room (e.g. by the Imbuing Shrine) and attack it. The members in wave range should be careful with the Keeper's Energy Wave. Since there will be many Animated Swords in the room, the weakest team members can be positioned closer to the walls while stronger ones stay on the edges with the Swords. When too many Swords are on screen the mages can use UE combos to clear them.
