Quest Quests:
Items requiredItems from the tool belt are not listed unless they do not work or are not automatically added.

  • New key
  • Tarnished key - if you have lost either key, you may obtain a new one via the Head Mourner's desk, but if there is one in your bank, you will not take one.

To enter the death altar, you will also need:

These items can also be obtained during the quest, but it's possible you already have them in the bank. However, you will need to bring them with you:

Enemies to defeat

Trouble in the temple

  • You must talk to Arianwyn BEFORE you obtain a second set of mourner gear before you can give it to him, or else it will not allow you to give it to him.

The Death Altar

  • Proceed to Thorgel in the temple, do not teleport as door will be locked on return!
    • Go up the stairs, up the southern 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.

Within the light itself

White light

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 (i.e. blue to yellow, blue+red to green, green+blue to red, all three to black). You'll need to direct all beams to the newest receiver. Due to how mirrors reflect, you often have to reroute, just keep trying different paths for quickest solution. Refer to the full guide if you can't figure it out.
  • Exit using the ladder in the southeast. (Not the Portal!)


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 avoiding the spikes.
  • Shoot it at the right time to hit the target.

The passage to Prifddinas

  • Go back 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.
  • Quest complete!


Within the Light reward
Additional rewards/activities
  • The ability to add a choice of destination to your crystal teleport seeds. Talk to Eluned in Isafdar during or after the quest with one fully charged crystal teleport seed in inventory. The teleport can't be added if you are carrying more than one crystal teleport seed. The crystal teleport seed will acquire the ability to teleport to a safe area in front of the Temple of Light, in addition to its original Lletya teleport.
