Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Once you have restored the Town's Founder's Statue and placed the five Varla Stones within it, you will have everything you need to repeat the ancient binding ritual and stop the mad Sorcerer-King. As it transpires, you completed this not a moment too soon, as the Sorcerer-King immediately launches an attack on the Town. Speak to Saashi, who will inform you that hordes of undead are amassing near the Arena north of town. You must agree to go there and face the Sorcerer-King.

You will arrive at a grand Imperial-style Arena. Celemaril, The Sorcerer-King will emerge during a cutscene, delivering a short monologue: "You cannot stop me, [Player name]... I will reign once again, and the world will be set aflame! Your loved ones will die, your cities will fall to dust... And I will feast upon your soul!" At the end of this, you will be placed directly into single combat, so be prepared. Celemaril is a Lich, so he is weak to Slashing and Fire damage. He does a significant amount of damage with each attack, so it is advisable to ensure your resistances are high.

Once he is defeated, Celemaril will fall to the ground dead, allowing you to hand in the quest and receive your rewards. Upon arriving back in Town, most NPCs will have new dialogue talking about the apparent undead attack which took place while you were fighting. In particular, you can return to the Founder's Statue to talk to Junius the Elder and Saashi for their heartfelt thanks.

Congratulations! You have completed the Main Quest and bound the Sorcerer-King.
