Prerequisites

Walkthrough & Notes

Entering the Castle

  1. Use west gargoyle statue at 64.6S 44.1W to summon the portal to Mhoire Castle.
  2. The portal will drop you in the ruins of Mhoire Castle up on the hill. There are various portals around the ruins which go to the different towers of the castle.
    • Note: For first timers, the only portal which works is the northeast tower portal. Once you've completed the quest for the first time, you can use the individual portals around the castle to access each tower trial quickly.
  3. Enter the northeast tower and speak with Shade of Antemy. He assigns you three trials to complete, one in each of the remaining three towers.
  4. Optional: Speak to the Shade of Fordroth and the Shade of Ormend to flag for two additional kill tasks.

Part 1: The Trials

Southeast Tower - Flames of Courage

  1. Optional: If you plan on using a flame protection rare, it is recommended to complete the Southeast and Southwest trials together, so you can benefit from the rare in both trials.
  2. From the Northeast tower drop, stick left until you reach a large room; take the SE corner door then stick left into through to another large room; take the NW door then stick left to the first test.
  3. Talk to the Guardian of Mhoire statue in the middle of the room to receive a Mhoire Sword of Courage.
    • Note: The room filled with Flame Guardians and high damage Flaming Skulls. If you get hit by one, heal immediately as a 2nd hit will likely kill you.
    • Tip: Watch the patterns and you can avoid most Flaming Skulls.
    • Tip: If you use an Inferno's Jewel (flame protection rare), the Flaming Skulls will not harm you at all.
  4. Once you've received the sword, kill 10 Flame Guardians and loot a Crystallized Blue Flame from each of their corpses.
    • Note: The corpses (indicated by a yellow dot on the map) only last 1 to 3 seconds, so you must loot after each kill.
  5. Once you've collected 10 flames, speak to the Guardian of Mhoire Statue to complete the trial.

Northwest Tower - Rite of Wisdom

  1. From the northeast tower drop, stick left to a large room and take the NW door then stick left through to another large room; take the SE door and stick left to the next test.
  2. For this test you will be harassed by several Guardian Statues that respawn as fast as you can kill them. They spam war magic, so you will need to be quick or have someone else heal you while you solve the puzzle.
  3. Talk to the Guardian of Mhoire statue in the middle of the room to receive a block of green text similar to the following (Each clue is different):
    DJZZKKE FBKV PTJ EKZCABKN MTNK
    KLZB OJLNE CV TNEKN CD PTJN ZBTNK
    XBK WCNDX XTJZB FCVED FBKNK WLMZTVD DTLN - Air (West)
    XBK VKUX BKLN ZNLDBCVO FLHKD TV DBTNK - Water (South)
    XBK XBCNE DKKQ ELIZCVO WMLIKD XBLX NTLN - Fire (North)
    XBK MLDX WCVE DXNTVOKDX ITJVXLCV ZTNK - Earth (East)
    RLVCDBIKVX WTN L ZBTCZK ITDX ATTN
    DJZZKDD LVE XBKV C ILNQ XBK ETTN
  4. Use each of the four stationary statues located around the room that correspond with the clues above.
    • Warning: You must use the statues in the order that you read them in your clue. If you use the statues out of order (you will be portaled to the start), or run out of time, simply talk to the statue again and you will be given a new order and the task starts over.
    • Optional: After receiving your clue, run to the side hallway so you can safely identify the order of the statues you need to use.
    1. Guardian of Fire is the North statue.
    2. Guardian of Water is the South statue.
    3. Guardian of Earth is the East statue.
    4. Guardian of Air is the West statue.
  5. If you use all 4 statues in the correct order, you will receive a message stating that you have completed the task, and been awarded the title reward.

Southwest Tower - Flames of Virtue

  1. From the drop of the northeast tower, stick left to a large room and take the NW door. From here, stick left to another large room; use the SW door then stick left to another large room. Finally, take the NE door and stick left to find the third test.
  2. You will enter a room with high damage Flaming Skulls (similar to the Souteast tower). These skulls can one or two hit you, so be careful to avoid them!
    • Optional: If you use an Inferno's Jewel (flame protection rare), you can avoid taking damage from the skulls.
  3. Talk to the Guardian of Mhoire statue in the middle of the room to receive a Mhoire Sword of Virtue, and a green message dictating which flame to drop it in.
    • Note: The map (see right) shows the names and locations of the flames.
  4. Drop the sword into the flame that corresponds with the message you received. If you're correct, you'll receive yet another message, indicating where to drop the sword next.
    • Note: It is possible to receive the same statue twice in a row.
  5. Once you've dropped the sword into a number of correct flames, you will receive a message telling you to bring the sword back to the Guardian of Mhoire statue.
    • Note: If you hand the sword to the wrong statue, simply speak with the Guardian of Mhoire again to get a new sword and start again.
  6. Return the sword to the Guardian of Mhoire, and if you've done the test correctly, you will receive a message indicating you have passed the test and been awarded the title reward.

Part 2: The Great Hall - Cleansing the Throne

  1. Talk to the Shade of Antemy at the northeast tower drop to flag for the Mhoire Castle Great Hall Portal (across the room from him).
  2. Enter the Mhoire Castle Great Hall Portal and you'll be in a series of rooms with various doors. Take the following:
    1. South double door
    2. NE double door
    3. East then North corner
    4. NW double door
    5. NW double door
    6. North then West corner (killable doors)
    7. SW double door
    8. Head south through the double door (killable doors), and enter the Mhoire Throne Room
  3. Use the Ancient Throne to spawn the Shade of Lord Rytheran and a horde of his Wights.
  4. Each person in your group must loot a Rytheran's Jeweled Ring (drops 9) from his corpse.
    • Note: For ranged characters this is solo-able, use the Throne and hop onto a pillar.
    • Optional: The Shade of Lord Rytheran (Undead, weak to fire/acid/pierceSB) will spawn along with numerous GY creatures. The various GY creatures will respawn reather quickly in the spot they are killed. Make use of doors in the vicinity as you see appropriate.
  5. Head back to the Northeast tower and speak to the Shade of Antemy to receive your rewards.
  6. Use the keys in the the legendary chest room located with the Sealed Treasury Vaults beyond the Mhoire Throne Room. You must go back to the Great Hall and beyond the throne to use the keys. Also note that the legendary chests are in separate rooms for each type of chest (Armor, Weapon, Magic).

Notes

  • Important: If you die while fighting the Shade of Lord Rytheran, you will not be able to respawn him on your own. If you speak to the Shade of Antemy, he will tell you that you must abandon the quest and try again in two weeks, or else go with someone else to spawn him. At this point, your best bet is to get someone else to spawn the boss, and simply loot Rytheran's Jeweled Ring when you've killed him.
  • Similar to how ghosts used to not always drop bodies, the same issue seems to be true for the Flame Guardians, when they are winding up to cast and are killed there's no corpse.
  • The ring has a 2 week timer on pickup, but you must complete the three tower trials again before the Shade of Antemy will reward you for repeat runs. That is you can pick up the ring, but if you have not completed the three trials and used the throne, you will not be rewarded by Antemy (you can do the trials and use the throne after picking up the ring if you forget).
  • If you use the Ancient Throne but fail to kill Lord Rytheran you can run back (slow respawn), but you cannot activate the Throne to spawn him again. You must either get another character to spawn Lord Rytheran by using the Throne or talk to the Shade of Antemy to reset your quest entirely.
