Part Three – The Shattered Obelisk Walkthrough
Part Two of The Shattered Obelisk had us hunting monsters in Destard, Hythloth and Deceit to look for special treasure chests containing mysterious items.
In Part Three, those items become useful.
Part three starts us off once again speaking to the City Herald and reading the latest news. Make sure you double-click the City Herald to get the quest.
Feeling as though this is all some sort of propaganda, you decide to speak to some citizens at The Marsh Hall in Vesper, ones that have been already questioned by the Royal Guard. Lets head off to The Marsh Hall which is located on the Southern end of town.
The three citizens you need to speak with are all wearing cloaks so are easy to spot. Let’s talk to the Baroness first.
As you speak to her, she seems to feel the same as you, but you’d like to get more opinions. Lets talk to the Guard next.
There’s one more citizen to talk to, lets head on over to the merchant.
Seems all the citizens that were questioned feel about the same…all of the sudden you hear a tiny, squeaky voice.
I guess we take the mouses word for it!
Clicking on the scroll opens up an image…
With the blackrock in your pack, use the scroll to travel to the Ethereal Void and Mythran’s Home.
You’ll end up here.
Head west through the hall to find Mythran the Mage and give him Sherry’s note.
QUEST CHAIN – THE LYCAEUM LARCENY
I know, I know, it’s something you’ve heard before – but you must understand. This is different. My colleague Heigel was researching at the Lycaeum. I haven’t been able to reach him since the article in the Town Cryer about the break-in there. Would you check on him, it would mean the world to me.
You notice books laying about and a small dresser with even more books in it, but when you flip through them you find they are in a language you do not understand.
Head on back to the Lycaeum to check on Mythran’s colleague….
Heigel seems to have passed on, so you take a closer look at his body to see if he had anything for Mythran….as you lean in, he coughs slightly
*Cough…Cough* Heigel looks into your eyes and before shuffling off into the eternal void, he slips you a rolled piece of parchment. Looking into your eyes his dyeing words are, “Go to Mythran…Become the Warrior of Ether”
Back to Mythran we go! Grab yourself another piece of blackrock and head back to Mythran’s Home to bring him the parchment Heigel gave you.
Heart of Earth, Tongue of Flames, Breath of Air and Tear of Seas.
He also gives you a Pagen Spellbook…those scrolls you got from the treasure maps in part 2? Yep that’s where they go.
And now you can read the books scattered about Mythrans Home, they offer clues as to how to gather the items he has tasked you to get. I will put most of those in a seperate article, but there are four that you need to read to be able to decern where to get the four items Mythran asked for.
Remember back in Part 2 you got spell scroll called Grant Peace? You guessed it..that spell is what you’ll need here.
If you’ve already put your spells in the Pagan Spellbook, go ahead and take a look at the spell Grant Peace.
The entire spell description is as follows:
Now if you remember from the notes, it said something about the Skara coastline..so lets head to Skara to see what’s up.
You notice a great rift north of the Animal Trainer and it seems to be pointing to the small island just off the coast…lets hop in our boat and check it out!
Killing the undead there will net you one Key of the Caretaker, which you need to cast Grant Peace.
Buy a pouch from a provisioner, put the 2 reagents inside ( blackmoor and executioner cap), go back to the island, double-click the Key and target the pouch. You will see a flash of light and a pop-up on your screen..SUCCESS! You now have the Heart of Earth!
Here we get a glimmer of flood waters in Vesper and a lost soul in search of something….lets head to Vesper!
Here we find the Necromancer Kalen, there is a story about him and his lost love in the books at Mythran’s House. I will post those in another section. For now, Kalen wants us to find a memento of his love that was washed out to sea.
Any old SOS will do…you’re going to need a bit of luck to find this item quickly. Either hop on your fisherman to take the quest (IMPORTANT – Your fisher MUST be on the Warrior of Ether Quest in order to accept Kalen’s Quest) or, some have said that if you are on the quest ~ The Zealotry of Zipactrictl~ it will help you find it quicker with no fishing skill.
So head on out to see with some SOS’s and hope you find it quickly. You’ll know when you find it because your screen will flash for a moment and a message will pop up on your screen.
Mark the staff as a quest item and return it to Kalen, he will give you the Tear of Seas as a reward.
TONGUE OF FLAME
Once again we return to Mythran’s notes to learn more about this.
Reading through it, you see mention of Fire, Pyros the towering fire deamon, recent fires in Britian and the proximity of Britian to a source of great fire. Also some clues as to how to cast the spell, Summon Perihelion. ~Sorcery requires extremely precise placement of reagents and candles around a pentagram, before the focus is conjured in the center~ From the clues given here, and a bit of luck! You will have a pentagram (Crafted, can be placed anywhere in a house) and the candles and reagents obtained from Part 2, set up to look like this:
Kal Flam Corp Xen
Now from the research notes we’ve read, we know that it’s a deamon, and it’s fire….where would you find deamons and fire? that’s right..The Deamon Temple on Fire Island..let’s go!
He’s 100% fire resist so don’t use fire against him! I took my Frost Dragon and he did pretty well, Sampires work too with cold weapons.
Once he’s dead, you will get the Tongue of Flames…one more to go!
BREATH OF AIR
Once more reading the research notes, we come across this:
I guess we head to Minoc and see what’s going on!
You notice odd creatures wandering around the mines, and you see a pile of rocks and the trapped miners….let’s kill some of these things and see what we find.
So yeah back to those spell scrolls you got out of the chests in Part 2..
Yep, you guessed it..hop on a tinker or have a friend do it for you. You need GM Tinkering and GM Magery and 20 Quicksilver. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! Make sure you have a high % Tinkering Talisman, preferably one with Loss Prevention on it because without it you only have a 5% chance of success and you’ll lose a LOT of Quicksilver.
So kill the Quicksilver Elementals until you find at least 20 and craft your focus. It looks like a white prospector’s tool. Go back to the mines and stand by the rocks blocking the entrance. DO NOT have the focus equipped, just in your bag, and say the words of power.
In Sanct An Jux
Now that you have all four items, it’s time to go back and talk to Mythran. Once again make sure you have a piece of blackrock and use the Ethereal Travel Spell to get back, toggle all four items as quest items and hand them to Mythran.
~You have truly learned the way of Pagan magics and the origins of Britannian magery. With this knowledge you have become a Warrior of Ether! You feel equipped to handle the coming threats to the realm!~
He will then give you the final pieces…the base to the Obelisk and the very tip. Go back to your house and re-build the Obelisk!
First place the four pieces down and then raise them with an interior design tool, then drop the base underneath. Double-clicking the green gem will infuse your weapon or spellbook with the Pagen Titan Slayer property. This can only be done once per day and lasts 24 hours.
(Thank you to Tina Small, Poo, Kylie Kinslayer and others I have forgotten but will find them lol for the use of images for this walkthrough. Good Luck!)
