  • We will now need to chase the refugee, Fabian.
  • You can begin chasing him through the open gate arch here. You should just about be able to spot him running off
  • However, before continuing to pursue him and heading through the hole in the wall. Turn right to find some loot (Bottle of Aqvus and 17 Gold)
  • Now continue through the hole in the wall and straight into the portal. This portal will take us to Fabian who has now decided to stop running
  • We will now learn more about this Amarantha, that she used to study under the powerful Archmage, Navedes. Now she feeds on the souls of the innocent. So our task is to basically stop her!
  • In order to reach her though, we will need to activate a magical crystal. You can find this magical crystal just North of you hovering in the air (it is hard to miss really)
  • However in order to activate it we will need to find and collect Magical Crystals
  • These Magical Crystals will then need to be placed on the stone pedestal, by the praying statues

  • Placing this Magical Crystal into the final pedestal will grant you access to the next area
  • Head into this next area and continue to follow the path, it will take you to Amarantha
  • Interact with the rune in order to initiate conversation
  • Amarantha will realise that you are an intruder and form another rune around her, attack it.
