Details[edit | edit source]

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Entering the temple[edit | edit source]

Items required: Full mourner gear, chisel
Recommended: Elf teleport crystal, teleport to Ardougne, food and armour/prayer potions to run past high level monsters

Map of the area and path to the blackened crystal.

Begin by speaking to Arianwyn in Lletya. He will tell you to go and stop the mourners from excavating under West Ardougne, and that you need a key from Essyllt to enter the excavation site.

Next, put on your full mourner gear. Bring a teleport crystal, and some food if you have low Defence or do not have 43 Prayer for Protect from Melee. Also, bring a chisel. Go to the basement of the Mourner HQ in Ardougne, and talk to Essyllt.

He will give you a new key to the nearby tunnels that they dug to the Temple of Light. He will ask you to find the digging team. Leave the head mourner's room and open the door on the west wall. Go into the tunnel. You will see level 182 Dark beasts.

Note: Ironmen with 90 Slayer can kill the dark beasts for the death talisman, which will save a lot of time further on in the quest.

Run past them to the west whilst praying Protect from Melee, to reach the temple entrance. You'll see a cutscene showing the digging team; shortly thereafter, you may be attacked by level 73 Shadows. Search the corpse of the guard slumped against the northern wall to get Edern's Journal.

From there, go west and enter the Temple of Light.

  • Take the east stairs to the middle floor.
  • Take the south stairs to the top floor.
  • Cross to the northern part of the top floor via the middle stairs.
  • Head east to the blackened crystal.
  • Use your chisel on the crystal to break off a piece of blackened Crystal.

Teleport to Lletya, and go back to Arianwyn. He will summon Eluned, who will enchant the black crystal in your inventory into a newly made crystal. It will be used at the end of the quest. Talk to Arianwyn again; then, you will need to prepare for a long and potentially frustrating puzzle. If you end up losing your crystal you can acquire a new one from Arianwyn.

The light puzzles[edit | edit source]

Items required: Full mourner gear, the new key, one rope. If you're planning to complete the puzzles in a single trip, bring a death talisman/death tiara and the newly made crystal too. One teleport out. Two or more free inventory spaces.
Recommended equipment: Weight-reducing clothing, high Prayer bonus gear and a weapon; or high-defence armour and a weapon
Recommended items: Prayer potions, stamina potions, food, summer pies/agility potions

If you want to attempt the puzzle in one trip, bring the mourner clothing, the new key, the crystal, and a death talisman. As you progress through the puzzle you will need an increasing number of inventory spaces free in order to hold the mirrors and crystals which are used in the puzzle, which you will have naturally as you consume prayer potions and food. Alternatively, if you are lacking inventory space, you can pick up only some of the mirrors and crystals and go back and get more. You will need 4 inventory spaces for the first steps of the puzzle, increasing to 13 inventory spaces open for the last step of the puzzle. You may freely bank at any time, especially between the completion of each puzzle. If you leave in the middle of a puzzle, the puzzle will be unchanged when you return. However, you cannot bank the mirrors and crystals received in the temple, so it is not recommended.

The death altar[edit | edit source]

Items required: a death talisman/death tiara OR the 50 items below (suggested only for Ironmen due to the tediousness of this). If you bring the death talisman, take the newly made crystal too.

You can skip this whole section if you have already bought/received a death talisman or death tiara.
The death altar.

After you go through the final door, talk to the dwarf Thorgel. You will ask each other how you got to the altar, and he will reveal there is a passage from the Underground Pass created by him and his companions. You will ask if he knows Klank, after which he will realise you are the one who slew Iban. Because of this, he agrees to trade you a death talisman in return for some supplies.

He gives you an item list that tells you what you need to get him. By bringing Thorgel each of the fifty items on the list, you will be able to obtain a death talisman.

You can give these items in more than one load. WARNING: If you teleport out, make sure you turn the mirror towards the cyan door first! Otherwise, you'll lock yourself out and you'll have to go through the Underground Pass and enter the tunnel inside the dwarf camp. The entry at the dwarf camp is most easily reached from the Lletya village, which is fairly close to the elven land entrance to the Underground Pass. Doing the Underground Pass in reverse to get to the dwarf village is a lot easier. The tunnel is located directly south of the main building. It is not marked on the minimap, so it is rather difficult to see.

The power of death[edit | edit source]

The temple's safeguard is now restored.

Use your death talisman on the death altar or wear your death tiara, then use the newly made crystal that Eluned repaired for you on it to charge it. Exit the death altar, and then exit the final chamber and make your way to the black crystal that you observed at the beginning of the quest. Use this charged crystal on the black crystal. This will stop people from entering the temple for another thousand years! Go back to Lletya, and talk to Arianwyn for your reward.

Congratulations! Quest Complete!
