Steps[edit | edit source]

  • Gather the first two of the four custodian's log pages from excavation sites found around Kharid-et. You can gather the first two pages from the following excavation hotspots: legionary remains, castra debris, and administratum debris.
  • Turn them in to Liam who can be found near the door. He will give you a Kharid-et prison dial, which you will use to fix the broken dial. These two pages can be in the bank instead of the inventory.
  • The broken dial is on the right of the door; it is the third circle down and looks like it has something missing.
  • Use the correct prison key order on the buttons to the left of the door: Shadow, Blood, Smoke, Ice (chat option 3, 1, 4, and 2). This is determined by the ascending order of sentence length and the first two letters of the Inmate IDs.
  • If you did not gather all four custodian's log pages before opening the door, gather any remaining pages from excavation sites found around Kharid-et. All four pages are required to complete this mystery. (In addition to the spots above, remaining pages can also be found at the two new spots inside the prison: praesidio remains and carcerem debris.)
  • The prison door leads to a level 47 area.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The player Wolverine316 was the first player who completed this mystery on 30 March 2020 which was shown in-game with the announcement: Game announcement.png News: Wolverine316 is the first to solve the 'Prison Break' mystery!
  • The examine text of the closed prison door reads: "Now, that's a big door." The opened pathway's examine text reads: "Now, that's an open door." This juxtaposes the usage of the word "now" from exclamative in the first sentence to adverbial in the second.
