Artefacts of the Tyrant Objectives

Artefacts of the Tyrant Walkthrough

  1. Tyrant's Stride can be found in Ancient Passage, which is made accessible during the quest Withermoore's Soul Jar. On the left side the passage there is a statue, climb the ladder to reach it. Interact with the statue to get the Tyrant's Stride, but don't equip it just now, it's cursed. You will need 15 Wits to notice the item when interacting with the statue.

  2. Tyrant's Helm can be found at Decrepit Ruins.
    For reference, look to the courtyard down the steps from the Hollow Marshes - Ruined Castle waypoint, the area in which you first help Gareth survive a Magister attack.
    After a brief dialogue with the remaining Magister, one can use Bless to cleanse the Cursed lever near the corpses. There is a Source tap nearby in the room if you're in need.
    NOTE - Using the Tyrant's Helm to cast Purge one too many times will summon a demon, leading to combat.


  3. Tracks of Tyrant can be found on top of the tower to the NE of Fort Joy, along the coast. There are lightning clouds in the tower, so it's hard not to see. It's just past Windego, on a corpse inside the tower. Teleport someone up to grab them.

  4. Heart of Tyrant is in Dark Cavern, atop a brazier. You will find this when doing The Vault of Braccus Rex quest.

  5. Hands of the Tyrant, is inside a coffin at Braccus Rex's Tower. You need 18 Strength to open it. Or use a trap disarm kit on the tomb lid and it will trigger a poison trap. The gloves will also fall out of the tomb. The tower is located at the back of The Gargoyle's Maze. Coordinates: x:589 y:678


Tips & Tricks

  • Tyrant's Stride can only be found in the statue with 15 or more in the Wits attribute, if you don't have this, consider using:
    • Peace of Mind scroll to increase wits by 4.
    • Puffball + empty potion bottle to create a minor potion of wits, increasing wits by 1.
  • All items except Helm have some sort of negative status effect, but they get removed when you wear complete set on one character.
  • All items require 11 Strength to wear.
  • The Helm can be used to destroy The Shriekers.
  • Band of Braccus is not part of this set and has its own quest: The Cursed Ring.

      interesting fact, if you wear the set and go to respec mirror in act 2, the unlocked talents become permanent even after removing the set, and you can redistribute the points. and you can repeat this with every character.

        why bother? The items are worthless, at the point when you complete the set you have far more superior gear anyway.

          I feel obligated to mention that after you complete the set, you can't wear any of the set seperate or else all the curses will come back

            If you have trouble opening the tomb:

            just brick one of the followers you do not use by giving them high strength, and then buffing. Be sure they will need the points invested at some point though, so you can save the build at higher levels. 15 strength, plus clear mind, and a minor +1 strength potion should do.

                I sold the first piece of the set by mistake. Any chance of getting it back without loading a previous save?

                  After using the Purge skill granted by the helm 3 times, a deamon will show up. Kill him and the purge skill will be replaced by Shackles Of Pain.

                    Anyone know how to get the legs? The statue in the Ancient Passage does nothing when talking to it. Even when pumping up to 15 wit, a chest appeared but it just had gold in it.

                      Update, I decided to collect the pieces I was missing and it's not cursed once everything is equipped. I thought maybe you had to also equip Braccas's ring, but that's not needed either. Did you get the Journal update that the quest line was closed?

                        once I retrieved all parts of this set, it said that the curse was lifted but the individual pieces are still cursed :(
