The entrance to the underground

The Masoleum of Darkivaron is a medium-sized crypt located on one of the smaller islands of Balfiera just northwest of the main island. There is a fairly high chance that part of the Main Quest, namely Dust of Restful Death, takes place at this dungeon.

Finding the mummy[edit]

You will enter the Masoleum of Darkivaron through some sort of sentry room. Turn any of the two hand wheels to remove the walls blocking your way to the west and east.

Once the walls have been removed, take the first elevator to the west and ride it down.

Once you arrive at the bottom, dispose of the enemy at the bottom of the elevator shaft and follow the hallway east, but watch out for a foe around the corner. You will come to a locked door; behind it is a room with a foe and a barrel. This is the first quest location of the dungeon. Open the locked door by whatever means you like.

To reach the second quest location, return to the elevator and ride it up. From the elevator, go north, hop over the second elevator platform, and go through the door at the end of the hallway.

Follow the hallway and go down a staircase to reach a junction.

At the junction turn south and follow the hallway until you come to a locked door; behind it is a room with two enemies, but you have probably already heard them. Open the door and dispose of them (there is a locked closet here with some random loot). Behind another locked door in this room is yet another room with two enemies and random loot. Open this locked door and dispose of these enemies, as well. In this second room is a third locked door leading to a tiny room. In this room is the second quest location of the dungeon. These are all quest locations of the first inner dungeon module.

The remaining two locations are in the second inner dungeon module. To reach them, you must first return to the junction at the bottom of the staircase you previously went down. From there, follow the hallway north and go through two storage rooms. There will be an enemy in the second room. Go through the door in the second room and follow the hallway until you reach a junction. Turn south and go through the door at the very end of the hallway. This is a large room with a few enemies. The first appears right when you enter the room; the remaining three are at the bottom of the room.

Either jump or use the staircase to reach the elevator platform at the bottom of the room. Besides the three enemies at the bottom, there is also a treasure pile next to the platform. Ride the elevator up.

Once you are at the top, follow the hallway and go through the door.

Follow the hallway until you reach an intersection. Turn east and walk up the ramp, but beware, there is a pit with an enemy at the top of the ramp. Beyond the pit is a locked secret door to the south, behind which is a room containing a foe and an open sarcophagus. This room houses the third quest location of the dungeon.

To reach the last quest location, return back to the intersection at the bottom of the ramp and follow it north. Follow the hallway past a room and walk down a steep staircase.

There will be two enemies nearby and another in the secret room to the northwest. You can reach the fourth quest location from this point on three ways:

  1. Just climb up the steep staircase on the other side of the hallway.
  2. Go north from the intersection and turn east at the T-intersection. You will see a pile of bones and above it is an opening in the ceiling. Climb or levitate through this opening to find a treasure pile nearby. Climb or levitate up the shaft at the end of the short passage near the opening.
  3. From the pile of bones, go east through the door and climb up another staircase.

If you took one of the two staircases, you will come to a secret door at the top. Open it and go north into a room containing a torture instrument, a treasure pile and the fourth quest location. Behind the west door is another small room, which also contains some random loot.

Once you have found the mummy and destroyed it, take the lich dust and the note from its corpse and bring both items to Medora Direnni in the Direnni Tower.

Notes[edit]

  • If the mummy is in the fourth quest location and gets stuck on the edge of the pit, his body may disappear when you kill him. In this case, you need to enter the Void to retrieve the quest targets (go to the nearby sloping tunnel, crouch, cast Levitate and rise into the ceiling). To get down below the pit where his body is, you may have to let your levitation end and fall a bit.
