Find the corpse of King Lysandus

[edit] Quick Walkthrough

  1. Visit Medora at the Direnni Tower once she has finished preparing the Dust of Restful Death.
  2. Get the Dust of Restful Death from her.
  3. Travel to Lysandus' Tomb in Menevia and find his sarcophagus within.
  4. Use the dust to soothe the spirit of Lysandus.
  5. Talk to Lysandus' spirit to find out what will put him to rest.

[edit] Detailed Walkthrough

After Medora has finished preparing the Dust of Restful Death you acquired from the mummy (this takes about 21 days), you can go to Lysandus' Tomb to attempt to calm his spirit. Once his spirit is sufficiently calmed, you hope he will be able to tell you exactly what is required to exorcise him. The location of Lysandus' Tomb was revealed to you by completing the Castle Llugwych quest.

[edit] Finding the Burial Chamber

DF-LT1.png

The burial chamber is located deep inside the tomb. Ahead of you lies probably the longest route of all Main Quest dungeons. From the entrance, walk west through the hall past some interesting statues of the various foes you can come up against in the game. At the end of the hall go through the door to your left. Follow the hallway up until you come to an intersection. At this intersection turn north and follow the hallway until you reach a door; go through it.

A Skull Teleporter

Follow the hallway until you reach a floating skull. Click the skull and you will be teleported to a room with some torture instruments and an enemy, kill the enemy.

This room is also your way back in case you didn't set an anchor near the entrance. There is a secret door in the northeast corner; behind it is a low passage you can only use if you are crouching. At the end of this passage is yet another skull teleporter along with an enemy and some treasure piles. Clicking this skull will teleport you to a position only a few meters away from the first skull teleporter.

To proceed further into the tomb, leave the room through the northwest door. Follow the hallway down and go through a room at the end.

DF-LT4.png

Leave the corridor through the door and follow the hallway until you come to an intersection. Turn east and follow the hallway, jump or levitate across the pit and follow the hallway until it turns north.

DF-LT5.png

Follow the hallway further north, go through the door and turn west at the intersection, follow the hallway north until you reach a second intersection.

DF-LT6.png

Turn east and go down the stairs until you come to a four-way intersection. Turn north and follow the stairs down and then up until you reach a second intersection. Go east and through the door; when you reach a third intersection, go up the stairs to the south.

DF-LT7.png

Once you are at the top, head east and go through the door. Turn south at the intersection and go up the ramp leading south. Head east and walk up another ramp.

DF-LT8.png

Follow the ramp further east and turn north once you stand in front of the doorway. Head further north past an intersection, go around the corner, head east at another intersection and go through the door. You will notice that the textures of the environment have changed. Head further east and turn north at another intersection. Once you come to the four-way intersection, head east again.

DF-LT9.png

Go east and follow the hallway down through a room. Go north and follow the next hallway until it takes a turn to the east.

DF-LT9 A.png

Until now you have encountered only vampires, wraiths and ghosts, but from this point you will encounter the more dangerous undead, namely vampire ancients and liches. A vampire ancient is just at the four-way intersection. After you take care of him, walk further east, past the two rooms. Each room contains a lich, so either engage them or run past the rooms. Go up the stairs and head south, walk through the doorway leading east.

DF-LT9 B.png

Walk up the ramp and head east.

DF-LT10.png

Follow the hallway east up the stairs and walk past an intersection. Follow the hallway and turn south. You will encounter a vampire ancient on your way.

DF-LT11.png

Follow the hallway further south until it turns west. Go west and at the intersection go north, follow the hallway further north.

DF-LT12.png

Follow the hallway further, you will encounter a lich on the way, until you reach an elevator, take the elevator down.

DF-LT13.png
DF-LT14.png

You are almost at the burial chamber; follow the hallway, but watch out since there are some small chambers along the way containing a single vampire. In the last chamber you will find an elevator, take it down and pull the lever in the room at the end of the small corridor. Ride the elevator back up and follow the hallway until you reach a door. This door leads directly into the burial chamber.

DF-LT15.png

Pulling the previous lever has opened a secret door in the southeast corner of the burial chamber. Pulling the lever behind this door will lower the central platform, allowing you access to the level below where Lysandus' sarcophagus is located. There will be a couple of specters in the burial chamber, so take care of them first.

Lysandus' final resting-place

If you have the Dust of Restful Death with you, sprinkle it onto Lysandus' corpse and learn the truth about his death. Lysandus' ghost appears, and tells you Lord Woodborne is the murderer:

"You soothed my rage. I do not seek to be placated; I seek vengeance upon he who slew me. If you'll truly lay my spirit to rest, be the instrument of my vengeance against Lord Woodborne of Wayrest."

The spirit can only be exorcised if Lord Woodborne is slain or suffers a massive reversal of fortune. Lysandus will mark Woodborne Hall on your map of Wayrest.


If you haven't set an anchor near the tomb's entrance, you must return to the room with the hidden skull teleporter, as mentioned earlier, to get out of the tomb. To get out from the lower level of the burial chamber, you must click the statue to the southwest of the sarcophagus. This will rise the central platform to the first level, or lower it again to the level with the sarcophagus.

[edit] Enemies

[edit] Notes

  • There are quite a few undead such as zombies, ordinary vampires and liches, as well as the occasional ancient vampire you will encounter inside the tomb. If you can't readily deal with these monsters, you aren't ready for this quest. The path to Lysandus' tomb is rather complex; you may wish to set a recall anchor near the entrance. The tomb is immense and difficult to map. Additionally, Lysandus' tomb cannot be reached with the "quest point" cheat keys, as it is not a standard quest location.
