Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Prince Naemon fears his sister, Queen Ayrenn, will be injured or killed while performing an ancient ritual. He asks you to ensure she survives.

The queen is outside the ruins of Tanzelwil to the west. As she prays at the altar, you are attacked by a mysterious spirit.

"We call upon our honored ancestors to pass on their memory and wisdom."—Queen Ayrenn
"Your ancestors disavow you, false one. The Veiled Queen is the rightful heir, and Norion shall end your reign."
"My queen, look out!"—Battlereeve Urcelmo

The queen asks you to protect two priestesses while they perform their parts of the ceremony.

Assisting the Priestesses[edit]

Aid the Priestess at the Western Ritual Site[edit]

To the west, you find Priestess Aranwen sitting on the ground inside a blue circle. She says a spirit named Colonwe is trying to kill her.

Defeat the spirit named Colanwe to the right of the priestess. Priestess Aranwen will run past you and begin the ritual.

"You did it! Now I must perform the ritual. May the spirits of our ancestors bless and guide us. May we honor their memories with out actions and thoughts."—Priestess Aranwen
"The ancients bless you for your prayers."

Aid the Priestess at the Northern Ritual Site[edit]

Defeat the ghosts around the ritual site.

Priestess Monaste will start the ritual, and she receives a blessing from the ancestors. However, after she receives the blessing, two more enemies attack.

The priestess prays at a second shrine, receives a blessing and completes the ritual.

Return to the Queen[edit]

The queen is at the western end of Tanzelwil, near the entrance to the ancient tombs. Talk to her to receive a reward.
