All five pieces of armor are on the island of Fort Joy, Reaper's Eye, and must be found before finishing Act I.
- The quest begins by reading a book in Fort Joy
We read of the 'Artifacts of the Tyrant'. A powerful suit of armor, it must be equipped in its entirety, lest the wearer be cursed.
Tyrant's Stride can be found in Ancient Passage, which is made accessible during the quest Withermoore's Soul Jar. On the west side the passage there is a statue, climb the ladder to reach it. Interact with the statue to get the Tyrant's Stride (You will need 15 Wits to find the item when interacting with the statue), but don't equip it just now, it's cursed.
One senses the 'Tyrant's Stride' may hinder, not help.
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.
There's something demonic about the 'Tyrant's Helm'.NOTE - As the quest text hints, using the Tyrant's Helm to cast Purge one too many times will summon a demon, leading to combat. This adds the quest entry A murderous demon emerged from the Tyrant's Helm
Tracks of the Tyrant can be found on top of the tower to the NE of Fort Joy, and SW of the large ship, along the coast just passed where you encounter Windego. You will need to be upon the adjacent cliff to teleport someone inside the tower to collect the loot within, the cliff is located at X:436, Y:280. There are lightning clouds in the tower, so it's hard not to see.
Holding the 'Tracks of the Tyrant' gives one an odd crippling sensation.
A scorching aura burns from 'The Heart of the Tyrant'. It may be too hot to handle.
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
The 'Hands of the Tyrant' have an odd pestilential aura.
- Equipping all five pieces at once will add the final quest text and close the quest.
Only when Braccus Rex's armor is complete can one wear it with ease.
- 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:
- All items 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 provides the Purge skill which can be used to destroy The Shriekers, providing a point of Source each time. However, using the helm three times will release a demon who will attack you. Once you defeat the demon and re-equip the helm, it will instead provide the Shackles of Pain skill.
- Band of Braccus is not part of this set and has its own quest: The Cursed Ring.
