Spiritual Enlightenment is a part of the Tales of the Arc miniquest series.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The task[edit | edit source]

To begin, speak to The Assassin (Ling) on the island of Aminishi. She asks for help finding the monk, Yulong but keeps her reasons secret. Ling suggests fighting the Acolytes of Seiryu on the northern portion of Aminishi to obtain clues.

The path of enlightenment[edit | edit source]

Killing any monks of Aminishi will allow you to receive the three books. The books are The Path of the Monk, The Path of the Elemental, and The Path of the Dragon. Be sure to read the books immediately after getting them, because the next one does not seem to drop before you read the last one, instead dropping the same book again and again. The books have a 1/16, 1/32, and 1/64 chance of being dropped, respectively. Be sure to save at least a few of the spirit dragon charms you obtain, as you will need them later. Make sure the charming imp is not set to destroy spirit dragon charms.

The three types of monk are the Sotapanna, Sakadagami, and Anagami. They require 90 Slayer to damage. All three types of monks are weak to Air spells.

Spirit Realm[edit | edit source]

Yulong in the Spirit Realm.

Once all three books have been obtained and read, return to the southern shore and speak to Ling. You must speak to Ling before you can interact with Yulong. Then with a few Spirit dragon charms in your inventory, head to the centre of the island, near the Sakadagami. Interact with the dragon statue (well of spirits) to be sent to the Spirit Realm. A Spirit dragon charm is consumed per minute spent in the Spirit Realm. You will only need one charm to reach Yulong. Run to the southern shore of the island (where Ling stood before) and speak to Yulong. Charms aren't consumed while you're talking to him. You must decide to either tell Ling where he is or agree to keep him hidden.

Finishing up[edit | edit source]

Once you finish speaking to Yulong, return to the statue and exit the Spirit Realm. Run back to the beach and speak to Ling. Depending on your earlier choice, you will either reveal Yulong's location or keep it a secret. Ling will reveal some new information about Yulong. Finish your conversation with Ling to complete the mini-quest.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • patch 10 October 2016 (Update):
    • Bad luck protection has been added to the 'Spiritual Enlightenment' mini-quest lore book drops. Players who defeat more NPCs during the miniquest will be more likely to receive the drop during their game session.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is possible to obtain the first two books multiple times before obtaining the third book.
  • The books can be obtained as drops from the monks before the player begins the miniquest.
  • Upon release, some players could not complete the miniquest after obtaining all three books due to a bug with Ling's dialogue. This has since been fixed.
