Tier 2 Search the Village for the friendly owl
I don’t have any hints to give for this one so I will just show you where it.
Tier 3 – Follow the Owl
Its like that follow the raven quest in Kingsmouth, you gotta keep following it! For those who are lost and can’t find the owl, I have a series of screenshots that follow the Owl’s footsteps behind the spoiler tags! Use the minimap in the screenshots to help locate him!
Now near one of the anima wells, you might get attacked and lose track of the owl. Don’t worry, just go see the little lady inside this tree and the quest should update!
Tier 3 – Find the girl with the spyglass watching over the Besieged Farmlands
If you done some of the questing here, you will know exactly who she is.. If not..
Tier 4 – Find the circus man in the forest
This part will lead you to The Shadowy Forest
The NPC you are looking for its right next to the entrance.
Tier 6 – Look for the Draculesti prophecy
If you are doing this part, I highly recommend you picking up Lurking Horror from Milosh as well. The two quests share an area and you can knock out two birds with one stone!
What you are looking for is way up at the top. You need to find a staircase first nearby.
By the time you get up there, you should see a bridge like structure – walk across to the very end!
Voila! Here you are!
Tier 7 Find the key
Not hard to find but just in case you can’t see it!
Look for records of the tomb
Having issue finding it?
Find the crypt behind the chapel
This area is filled with enemies that have high physical resistance. You can ignore them and just run to your destination.
Tier 8 Find someone who can interpret the document
If you have quested abit here, you might have noticed some NPCs who have very odd behaviors and prefer to stay alone. Hint: It is a woman and she is a bit buggy (you may need to run around her to get the cutscene to trigger)
Tier 9: Find the source of the stream
This is my favorite part!
How do you find the source of a steam? You follow it!
Pretty soon you will come across a split in the stream. This part is a bit tricky: left or right?
If you open your map.. you will see that one of them lead to somewhere special..
Tier 10 Activate the source
Tier 10 of Mortal Sins involve a puzzle that you need to solve…
Looking at the letters..they are not English are they? Where is Transylvania located?
If you read the quest description.. it says.. Find them and bring the Dragon back to life..
Hint: It is really simple, you just need to say the keyword.
Don’t know which letters to press? There are two T looking like letters, pick the bigger one!
Here is exactly what you need to click, I think you can figure out the order to press it!
Tier 12 – Find the water of Death
Remember the hint it gave you… In the Land of Shadow where spirits walk seeking oblivion; their eternal Pilgrimage leading them to the shores of the depthless ocean and the final embrace of the black water.
Land of Shadow where spirits walk – that ring a bell?
After a long passage, you wil arrive at here!
Tier 13 Find the Dragon’s Tomb
You recall where the Dragon’s Tomb was right? You bring there before on tier 7 of the quest. Recall that the door you used back then was the back entrance, it might be worth checking out the front entrance this time!
Hint: Check the sides of the chapel
Tier 14 – Gather the water with Dracula’s egg to capture his essence
I spent ages trying to find the egg in my inventory – turns out you can just click the water
Tier 17 – Looking for something to persuade Octavian
Check the table!
Tier 22: Find one of Mara’s Messengers
One of the places where I got the update is the little road right next to Dragan Dzoavich.
Tier 22 Follow the messenger
I followed the Vampiric messenger until I got to here, and then followed the Hybrid messenger after.
If you don’t see the Hybrid messenger, you may need to wait for another Vampiric messenger to run by.
The hybrid messenger you follow will take a stop here.
This part bugged out for me slightly as there is suppose to be another Hybrid messenger to follow but it didn’t spawn right away. I run around the area and waited until it spawned. The final messenger lead me to here.
There should be a cutscene that triggers here.
Tier 24 Find the one
This part really confused me.. I followed Emma all the way to Smith’s Cabin and then she went upstairs and disappeared. Turns out.. that is not the NPC you are looking for.
The NPC you are looking for is at the south end of the map..I have marked his location right here below the spoiler tags.
Tier 25 Find a way to unlock Mara’s chambers
This part gotta be the most buggy part of this entire questline. The Royal Sadists are bugged – they won’t die when they are 0 health due to server lag in this particular instance. To kill them, you need to use an AoE that do not require a target. If you don’t kill them fast enough, they one shot you due to accumulated damage from the server lag (it won’t show up in the server logs).
Anyways, if you get them single, Royal Sadists are defeatable in their bugged state but the last pull near the doors has a group of three of them, which make it almost impossible to kill them.
Luckily you don’t need to kill those things to open the door.
Drop down into the murky waters below and kill those Refuse Collectors. They each drop a body part that you will need
You will need left arm, right arm, left leg right leg, head, and torso from the Refuse Collectors. Once you have all of them, head to the table in the middle of the room and place them there by clicking on the corners of the pentagram.
Once you have everything assembled, just run past those 3 Royal Sadists into the next fight area. It will trigger a cutscene and lock them out.
Tier 25 Confront Mara
The fight itself isn’t bad for a ranged character although it may present more challenge for melees. Mara has only 19k health but has an AoE that you must LOS (Line of Sight) or it is instant death. The cast time is quite long so you have plenty of time to whack her before you will need to hide. The zombie bloodslaves that spawns can be a pain though as they like to block your path and prevent you from getting out of LOS.
You will need to use those horse statues to hide behind. There is a very tiny DPS check mechanic to this fight as horse statue you used to hide in gets destroyed after her cast so you will need to find a new one for her next AOE.
Anyways, after you damage her enough she will trigger the next phase.
For the next phase, she will cast Reckless Life. Each cast give her a buff, once this buff reaches 5, she will cast an ability called Live and Let Die that you must dodge. I didn’t really get to see what happens if you don’t dodge it as the cutscene triggered as I got her down to below 2k HP.
Tier 27 Follow Emma
The big fight is over, follow Emma across the Breach.
Go up with her to the stairs and follow the crates until you reach the Orochi van. When Emma jumps, follow her!
Tier 29 Find the source of the energy
See that blue orb ahead? Go up there.
Tier 29 Find a failing Gaia engine
Keep following it
The next blue orb is just right up ahead at the cube looking thingie.
Tier 29 Repair the failing Gaia engine
There are six orbs here. The trick here is to spot the failing one. All of them make a melodic sound, except the failing one, which make a static like (zzzz) sound. If you listen to the music cycle, you will note that each orb make a sound from left to right. This cycle repeats over and over so you just need to find the orb that is making weird static sound and click it. You will know when you fixed it as the music will start a new cycle and now everything sounds normal. (See video below if you are still not clear)
Note that each orb have two states – a working state that makes a melodic state and a broken state that makes a static sound. If you just randomly clicking on the orbs, you will turn some of the working orbs into the broke one so you will need click on them again to fix it.
The one that worked for me is the one in the corner (3rd one from the right, 4th from the left).
Tier 29 Find the next Gaia Engine
This one I got lost a bit as they all look the same. Remember that you can jump into the portals at the base of each cube structure for a faster transport to the next cube.
I think I had to take 3 lefts from the repaired gaia engine to find the next one. If you can’t find it, just keep traveling left and look for the blue orb at every stop.
Tier 29 Repair the failing Gaia engine
Again, this is the same idea here. Here is a clip that demonstrates what I said above. If you listen carefully, it is
[melodic] [melodic][static][melodic] [melodic] [melodic]
So you just need to click on the static orb, which in this case is the 3rd from the left (may not the same for you depending on which orbs you clicked)
Tier 29 Find a way to enter the crater
The crater is in the middle but it is blocked by rocks etc. You may need to run around until you find a large entrance into the crater with yellow shield on it. Beware that small gaps in the rocks like this one here won’t allow you to enter the crater.
This is the entrance you are looking for.
Tier 29 Repair the prison or attack it
The easy way to finish up this quest is to simple attack it. This will give you a different ending that if you repair the prison.
I did it the hard way, repairing it. Keep in mind that this time there are 12 orbs and could be as many as 3 broken engines that you need to fix it up.
I have included a video showing you how I repaired this part.
Light side ending – what happens if you repair the prison rather than destroy it.
