Overview[edit | edit source]

Trouble in the temple[edit | edit source]

Items needed: Two sets of mourner gear, new key, tarnished key, blank teleport crystal (Crystal trinket, Death talisman are needed immediately afterwards, grab before teleporting with Arianwyn)
  • Talk to Arianwyn in the large building in Lletya. (Chat )
  • Use a piece of mourner gear on him to give him a set. (Chat 1)
    • OR You can wait to grab another set when you are at the Mourner HQ later on, which saves time.
  • Kill another mourner south of Eagles' Peak to obtain another set of mourner gear.
  • With your mourner gear equipped, enter the Mourner Headquarters in the north-east of West Ardougne and climb down the trapdoor.
  • You Should Have Both Keys from Pt 1/2 But, you can Search the Head Mourner's desk for the tarnished and new key if you don't already have either.
  • Talk to the gnome. (Chat 12) (talk to head mourner if you want to honour your deal)
  • Kill a mourner for mourner gear set if needed
  • Enter the tunnels with the new key and run to the west to approach the Temple of Light.
  • Remove your gas mask and chant-to the blank teleport crystal by standing east of the first slave on the square directly north of the jutting out part of the south rock wall.
  • After the cutscene, return to Lletya.
  • Bank for food to fend against shadows.
  • Equip your gas mask again and talk to Arianwyn. (dismiss your pet or familliar if you have any) (Chat 11)
    • Make sure to have a second set of mourner gear to hand in, if not done earlier, talk to him again once he is dressed.
  • You teleport to the temple with Arianwyn

The Death Altar[edit | edit source]

  • Proceed to Thorgel in the temple. Do not teleport out of the room with the Death Altar as the Light door will be locked on return!
    • DO NOT Wicked Hood Death Altar teleport at this point unless you are absolutely certain the light beam is situated to let you out of the altar room.
    • OR Go up the centre stairs, south and up the ladder; down the central stairs, down again, walk through the light door, rotate mirror and enter the west room with the Death Altar and Thorgel.
  • Talk to Thorgel immediately before the teleport to the Death Altar. He is near the mysterious ruins. (Chat 1)
  • Talk to Arianwyn.
  • Investigate the energised pillar (east multi-colored 4-beam pillar).
  • Talk to Arianwyn.
  • Use the crystal trinket (Epilepsy warning) on the energised pillar.
  • Talk to Arianwyn. (Chat 3)
  • Enter the mysterious ruins.
  • Remember these steps and do them quickly, or you'll have to try again:
    • Talk to Thorgel to become energised. (Chat 12)
    • Exit the altar.
    • Pass the door of light.
    • Rotate the first pillar of light mirror by the stairs.
    • Go up and use the stairs to the north.
    • Run all the way east then south to the large crystal and investigate it.
    • Run back down the stairs and touch the energised pillar.

Within the light itself[edit | edit source]

One solution to directing a white light into the black receiver
  • Once inside, search the dead slave on the ground.
  • Chop, then fix the eastern tree with the blue beam.
  • Solve the puzzles by reflecting the beams to the opposite coloured receivers. (Due to how mirrors reflect, you often have to reroute, just keep trying different paths for the quickest solution.)
    • Redirect the blue light to the yellow receiver. (This enables the red light)
    • Redirect a combination of red and blue light to the green receiver. (This enables the green light)
    • Redirect a combination of blue and green light to the red receiver.
    • Redirect all three colours to the black receiver (When done all receivers on the western wall will be white)

Refer to the full guide if you can't figure it out.

  • Exit using the ladder in the south-east (not the portal).

Sharpshooter[edit | edit source]

If you die, your grave will appear behind the energised pillar. To get there, teleport to the Death Altar through the Abyss or the wicked hood if the door to the altar is unlocked. You will have to repeat the energisation process again to re-enter the platform puzzle area. Progress of the light puzzle will also be saved.

  • Reach the platform with the ballista by jumping between the platform and trying to avoid the spikes in the floor.
  • Shoot it at the right time to hit the target.

The passage to Prifddinas[edit | edit source]

  • Go back the way you came and jump to the ladder.
  • Go-through the large stone door on the west wall.
  • Search the Elf messenger.
  • Read the report.
  • Return to Arianwyn in Lletya and give him the report.
  • Quest complete!
