What to Expect

  • A lot of climbing and jumping
  • Handholds in the rock faces
  • Tile puzzles

Tips and Misc

Ancient Shrine puzzles: north - east - south

(Secret door DC)

  • Much of this quest is spent climbing and jumping around in the large ruins in the central area of the map. If you don't have Feather Fall, you should pick it up from the Effervescent Water at the start of the quest.
  • To complete the quest, you'll first need to visit three mini-dungeons and retrieve a crest from each: the Ancient Shrine, the Desolate Tomb and the Crumbling Caves.
    • The Ancient Shrine first requires you to solve a puzzle. After a fight, you'll then explore a series of underwater tunnels looking for a lever to open a gate to the Crest.
      • The Faintly Glowing Moss Clusters grant Water Breathing to anyone who uses them.
      • A secret door in the underwater area leads to the Wight optional - see below.
    • The Desolate Tomb is a simple set of fights against Undead, culminating in a fight with a Mummy at the end.
    • The Crumbling Caves are full of spiders and contain a red-named Ettercap fight.
  • Once you've collected the crests, head to the entrance to the Hidden Crypt and slot the three crests into the door.
  • Finally, climb up a vine-covered wall to fight the Gargoyle end boss, then head behind the Kopru statue to fetch the hidden tome and end the quest.
  • Optionals:
    • The Canyon Carnotaurus is wandering around the forest floor in the central area. It's surrounded by several Dread Protoceratops and Polacanthuses, which won't attack you unless you directly damage them.
    • There are ten pterodactyl eggs hidden around the map. Six are in hard-to-reach locations in the central map - each location has a ladder to it, but that ladder is often tricky to find. If doing this optional, bring a Jump potion. The other four eggs are located as follows:
      • In the opening room of the Ancient Shrine.
      • In the room full of zombies in the Desolate Tomb.
      • Behind a secret door opposite the shrine in the Crumbling Caves (Search DCs are low.)
      • At the boss fight in the Hidden Crypt.
    • Behind the secret door in the Ancient Shrine is another water-filled tunnel and a room with several zombies and a red-named Wight. Winning this fight awards a chest and opens a portal back to the crest.
    • To unlock the Locked Door (exact location unknown), you must first find the randomly located key. Two known locations are in the Wight's room in the Hidden Shrine and behind the Mummy's Sarcophagus in the Desolate Tomb.

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 80 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣244 ♦432 ♥459 ♠485 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 104 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣365 ♦649 ♥688 ♠728 )
  • Conquest bonus: 123 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣609 ♦1,081 ♥1,147 ♠1,213 )
  • Observance bonus: 1 or more secret door discovered +8% Bonus.( ♣195 ♦346 ♥367 ♠388 )
  • Mischief bonus: 22 or more breakables smashed +8% Bonus.( ♣195 ♦346 ♥367 ♠388 )
