Skills: High Agility (around 70 should do)

Items: Plenty of food, Lots Ardougne teleport runes, Ring Of Life, Charged Lleyta teleport crystal. You may also want to bring a weapon and decent armor or prayer robes (and maybe even prayer potions) because you will be under constant strong melee attack during almost all of the quest.

NPC: Arianwyn, Head Mourner, Eluned, Thorgel

1: Start
Arianwyn tells you to investigate the excavation, so put on your mourners outfit and head to Mourners Headquarters in West Ardougne. You will find the HQ in the most Northeastern building. If you do not have your mourners outfit from Mournings Ends Part 1, you can get another by killing a level 11 mourner on the way to West Ardougne. When you get to Mourners HQ, speak with the Head Mourner in the basement to receive a new key.

2: The Temple
Use your new key to enter the tunnels beyond the locked door. Once you are through the mourners' locked door you no longer have to wear the mourners outfit and can wear any armor or robes that you brought along. Once through that door you need to head directly west, then take the southern path. After a cutscene happens, search a nearby guard to receive his journal and a colour wheel. The colour wheel can be useful later on. Now head back to Arianwyn.

3: Obtaining the Crystal
After speaking with Arianwyn head back to the temple. You need to head inside the front door now, being careful of the shadow creatures. Climb the stairs directly in front of the door.

Once up these stairs move to the east of them to find the collection point.

It is advisable to pull the lever and collect everything at this point. Go back to the stairs. From here you need to head south one pillar, then west followed by south to find some stairs within the wall.

Climb up these stairs, once up you should see some stairs to the north on your minimap, head to these and go down.
This is a good place for taking a break when doing the puzzle as it is safe, but now you head up the north stairs. From here go as far to the east as you can and you should find the black crystal just to your south. Use your chisel on it to take a sample.
Head back to Arianwyn again.

4: The First Two Doors
Arianwyn should get Eluned to make a new crystal for you and tell you what to do with it. Bank it for now and get out the mirrors and yellow crystal from the temple.

First and Second Doors

Now is when the puzzle begins, you need to head back to the temple and up the first stairs. To the east of these by the collector is a light pillar with a beam of light in it. Insert a mirror and rotate to send the beam north.

Move north to the pillar and using a mirror to send the beam to the west. Here direct the beam south. Follow the beam south placing your yellow crystal and then a mirror to send your yellow beam east.

You can now climb across the handholds (failing sends you to the first floor and deals 5 damage) to reach a newly opened blue door. Search the chest within for more mirrors and a cyan crystal.

Now work your way back to where you turned the beam south, collecting your pieces as you go. At the pillar where the beam turns south, put in the cyan crystal. Follow the beam west, turn it north with a mirror, before continuing to turn it back east.
Follow the beam along towards the door and you will come across a pillar. Put your yellow crystal in here. This opens the pink door, where you once again open the chest for more mirrors.

5: The Yellow and Cyan Doors
This would be a good time to restock your food etc and collect a rope as you will need it for the next part.

Using the collector get all your mirrors and crystals back. Then you need to setup the following pattern, always following the beam:

North, West, Cyan Crystal, North, East
The next pillar along this corridor also needs a mirror, but it must point the light upwards. To achieve this the mirror needs to have its base where the light enters and top on the opposite side. In this case west and east. Light travelling up can be noted by a beam above the pillar.

Third Door

Using the ladder beside this pillar, head up one floor. Here, use a mirror on the pillar to send the beam west. The beam will pass through a pillar you cannot reach, this pillar has the useful effect of turning cyan to blue and yellow to red. which we will be using later.

Head back down the ladder and head south to reach the other stairs to the top floor. Once here cross to the north side using the double stairs, then head directly west through a narrow grey passage. Once through head north to find your now blue light beam.

From here we want to send our light down. to do this arrange the mirror so its top is by the east and base is by the west markers.
Head all the way down to the first floor and make your way to the north west corner again. Your beam should have opened a yellow door for you. Head through and rotate the fixed mirror to hit the other door. Raid the chest in here, then rotating the miror again, escape.

Fourth Door

Leaving everything the same as the set up for the third door, head back to your cyan crystal on the second floor and replace it with the yellow crystal. Then head back to the north west corner of the upper floor.

This time reflect your now red light to head south. Follow it all the way to the south west corner and direct it downwards by aligning the mirror top to north and bottom to south.

Once you have done this, head down one floor using the stairs. Directly west of the stairs you should find a low wall - climb over it.
In this room you use your rope on the rocks by the hole in the floor so that you can climb down. Go through the now open cyan door to raid the chest.

You should now have 10 mirrors, a fractured crystal, and cyan, yellow and blue crystals. Now is a good time to restock food.

6: Splitting the Light
This is where it gets a bit more complicated, so make sure you know how to arrange mirrors to send light up and down.

Firstly set up your crystals to once more open the first blue door, this time place the blue crystal inside this room. Do NOT pull the lever after doing this step.

Head back to the pillar north and west from the lever - collecting all your mirrors and your yellow crystal along the way - and direct your beam upwards.

Fifth Door

Move up via the stairs to reach your beam and send it south. This beam will travel a long distance to a pillar on the other side of the double steps. Here you place your fractured crystal - note that the smooth side faces north, this is vital later on. Now you should have multiple light beams. Firstly head south and reflect the light east to the corner, then send it down.

Now head back to your light split. This time follow it west and once again send the beam down.

Move down two floors and find this second beam, which thanks to a special pillar should be green. Using your mirrors reflect this south then east to open the door. Inside this room you should have your blue beam. rotate the fixed mirror so it hits the yellow door and collect your last mirrors and second fractured crystal from the chest.

7: The Final Pillar
This pillar requires beams of certain colours to hit it from certain sides and will put to use all you have learnt.
For it to open we need a blue beam from the north, a red beam from the west and a green beam from the south.

Click here to see a map for the
Sixth Door

Start back at the collector after using it to get all your crystals and send the beam north as normal. Then send the beam down.
Find the beam downstairs and send it west, this is where it gets tricky. Place your newest fractured crystal in the pillar, the smooth side should face east. If you do not get four beams, it is the wrong one so switch it.

Once you have this you need to move around the unaccessable room to reach your north beam and reflect it up. On the 2nd floor you need to place the yellow crystal into this beam, then using the ladder head to the third floor. Here send the beam west through the colour changing pillar, to make our red beam.

Now you need to reach the northwest corner again, using the same route as before, to find your red beam. From the corner you have to send it south, then halfway along send it east using the pillar there. A fixed mirror to the east reflects it down for you.
That is your first beam sorted.

Head back to where you split the light and follow the south beam. At the four-way pillar place your other fractured crystal. To both the east and west of here you need to reflect your light upwards.
This should give you a plain and a green beam, thanks to the second floor pillar, on the third floor.

Now head up to the third floor again, and find the most western of your two beams, which should be green. This beam will not appear from the top of its pillar as it cannot go further up, but is the pillar west of the double stairs. Reflect this beam west.

Fixed mirrors again send this to the final pillar for you, so two beams down, one to go.

Then head east to find your other beam, which should be to the far east of the same row. Send the beam west, then north and cross over using the double steps.

On this side, use your last mirror to reflect it west again, but follow the beam to find a pillar that it passes through to the west and place the blue crystal in it. Once again fixed mirrors do the rest.

8: Thorgel
Now move to the space between the double stairs and take the steps down to the west. The cyan door here is now open, thanks to your red beam, step through and rotate the mirror in the pillar nearby to send the beam west.

This completes the final pillar, opening the door to the altar.

Follow the beam west and step through the triple door to view a short cutscene with Thorgel the dwarf. He will give you a list of 50 items to aquire in exchange for a death talisman, should you not already have one.
