At level forty you should be able to solo this, before that I would
suggest at least two or more in a group. This is a quest for the High
Acolytes Skull, which is required for the Focusing Stone quest. If you
don't plan on doing the focusing stone you can turn in the skull for
12,000 experience points at an ivory crafter. You also receive a Yucky
Key, it has four uses and opens the chests at the end, which contain
uber loot. The loot isn't always something to keep, but usually is worth
quite a bit of money, anywhere from 3000-9000 pyreals and higher. The
monsters on this quest spawn when floor triggers are stepped on. I find
it easiest to kill all the monsters before doing the switches since the
killing takes time and may cause me to miss an open door. You will
definitely want to use a fire weapon on this quest with all the undead.
There is actually a fourth tower (87.6s 12.3w) separate from the others,
it has a lifestone next to it. This is to the east of the other towers.
The first step is to get to the towers. There isn't a portal that gets
near the towers, so the only way is to run it. There are two ways: 1.
You can run from Qalaba'r or 2. You can take the South Dires portal from
Mayoi (62.2s 77.1e). Both runs are about the same distance, but the
Qalaba'r run is only a short distance through Dires monsters, so I
suggest that direction.
The first tower is at 87.9s 10.4w. Here you need to kill the Lich at the
base of the tower, this will open the door to the tower. Head to the top
and flip the floor switch, this will open the door to the second tower.
Now hurry to the second tower (87.9s 10.7w). As you enter two liches and
a few undead spawn. You must kill them to open the door to the third
tower. Now, head to the third tower (88.3s 10.8w), as you enter this
tower liches and undead spawn as well as a lesser acolyte. You needn't
worry about killing anything but the lesser acolyte unless you need to.
Once the acolyte is dead, a portal will spawn that takes you to the next
Mostly zombies inhabit this area. When you enter head north and right at
the T-junction. In the first niche down the hall is a switch, flip this
and then head north again. At the T-junction head right through the
doors and follow the hall. You will come to a large room with another
room inside it. Inside the smaller room is a floor switch, flip it. Head
quickly back to the doors and head straight through them. If the doors
are closed you can open them with a wall switch just up the ramp from
this room. The doors opposite the room you just left are now open. From
this room follow the hall down and then left at the first T-junction,
right at next T-junction then straight till you come to another
T-junction, head left. In the next room is another lesser acolyte, which
will spawn a portal when killed.
Skeleton warriors inhabit this area. Head north from the room and take
the first left. Take the next left and follow the right wall, over the
bridge. Flip the switch found in the right niche. Now, head back by
following the left wall, through the doors that are now open. Down the
ramp you will come to a T-junction, head right. You will come to an area
where you can either, jump down or jump across to another room. Jump
across and flip the floor switch. Now, jump down and head through the
doors in the west wall, take the first right to the doors that are now
open. If you miss the door you can head back by flipping the wall switch
near it and heading south. At the Y-junction head left. Here again is
another lesser acolyte, kill it and a portal spawns.
This last area is inhabited by liches primarily. Head west from this
room, straight at the T-junction. Then straight till the last room and
head right through the doors. At the T-junction turn right, straight
through the next two T-junctions, right at the next T-junction. In a
niche in the wall to the right is a wall switch, pull it and head
through the two archways to the next door that is now open. Follow the
hall and come to a large open room. Here is where the high acolyte is.
Kill him and get a Yucky Key and the Skull of the High Acolyte. You will
need to wait for everyone to get there key before taking the last
The room with the high acolyte is usually camped and can be very busy.
The spawn rate is about four minutes though so even a large party can
get through this fairly quick.
Once everyone in your party has a key take the last portal. In the next
area are four chests. There are always four chests so if you don't see
one check the other rooms in the area. Two of the chests contain
worthless items. Of the other two chests, one will contain weapons and
armor and the other miscellaneous items, from armor to magic items.
There is often at least one person in this room who can tell which are
the good chests. If you are not so lucky and need to open the chests
yourself, leave the items in the bad chests and only take the items from
the good chests. The items in the good chests will be over 1000 pyreals
and normally more then 3000 pyreals. You will often find uber loot in
the good chests. Including items with level six magics.
