The Warrior, now uncorrupted, speaks to The Thief
People venturing into Hel Ra Citadel have mysteriously vanished, including a group of Undaunted led by Kailstig the Axe. I should enter the Citadel to find out what happened to them.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Speak to Kailstig the Axe at the entrance of Hel Ra Citadel.
  2. Defeat the first Anka-Ra waves Ra Kotu.
  3. Split up your group into two separate groups, then proceed through the gates and defeat Yokeda Kai and Yokeda Rok'dun.
    VeteranRegroup and sound the War Horn to defeat a large Anka-Ra wave, only in Veteran Mode.
  4. Enter the Hall of the Warrior and defeat The Celestial Warrior.
  5. Speak to Mindil the Untested and claim your reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Once the Warrior is defeated, he will appear in his Celestial form and speak to The Thief:

The Warrior: "The Serpent no longer clouds my mind. My sword will claim his neck."
The Thief: "The Serpent belongs in the natural order. We will stop him, not murder him."
The Warrior: "All talk and no action. Fall in behind me. The Serpent will learn his lesson."

If Aetherian Archive has been completed, The Mage will also be present:

The Warrior: "The Serpent no longer clouds my mind. Eyes clear, my sword will claim his neck."
The Thief: "The Serpent has been confined to his Apex Stone, and the natural order is restored. But his attention will turn elsewhere. We should depart."
The Warrior: "Surprisingly efficient. For a Thief and a Mage. Fall in line behind me. I will take charge from here."

Mindil the Untested will arrive with Kailstig the Axe, so you must speak to him to claim your reward:

"My friend, you're victorious!
I hope Hel Ra Citadel was fierce enough for you!"
I've explored Hel Ra Citadel and defeated the opponents within.
"You've outdone us, friend. You've reached the heart of this Citadel before the Undaunted.
This doesn't happen often, but we'd like to give you something special to commemorate your feat!"

If you fail to pick up the quest at the start of the trial, you can loot a Celestial Warrior's Trophy off of the Warrior's corpse.

<Amongst the ashes of the Celestial Warrior sits a battered and broken shield, likely taken as a trophy from one of the slain Undaunted.>
I will take this trophy to the Undaunted as proof of the Celestial Warrior's defeat.

Quest Stages[edit]

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
