Hammerfall Walkthrough

This main quest is acquired once you reach Act IV, the Hunt for Dallis.

Speak to Malady, and she will remind you that your purpose here in Arx is to kill Dallis.She suggests that you start searching for her amongst the local Divine Order.

The harbour has been overwhelmed by the Voidwoken; defeat them so you can explore the Lord Dread - Dallis's ship. Interacting with the Lord Dread will tell you that Dallis is older than it, despite it having lived as an Ancestor Tree and an elf prior to its current form. Don't forget to loot the chest for a powerful unique amulet for mages.

Travel through the bridge to reach the city of Arx. You will need to defeat some Voidwoken on the bridge, starting the quest, "Battle at the Gates".

Inside Arx, you will learn from some paladins that Dallis can be found inside the cathedral.

In order to get in the cathedral, you need to complete the quests, "A Craftsman of Dreams and Nightmares" and "The Vault of Linder Kemm".

Once you have the knowledge on how to traverse the traps made by Lucian from Lord Arhu and the amulet and scroll from the Toyseller, you may proceed into the cathedral. Remember to finish all your side quests and companion quests before proceeding. You will gain 96,950 Exploration XP upon approaching the cathedral.

Head forwards, towards the Path of Blood, where a Hopeful Pilgrim will run ahead of you and attempt it. Obviously, he will be struck dead, and you can then pass. Pass on forwards and you will earn 134,750 Exploration XP. As you approach the statue, don't bother talking with it; none of the answers are correct. Instead, to the left of the statue, there is a switch as shown in the picture below. Put the Source Amulet acquired from the Toyseller in it, then push the button. The amulet will need to be completely full of source (you may equip and use Source Vampirism to fill it). If done correctly, you will automatically read the Scroll of Atonement and a hatch will be revealed.

Once you enter the hatch, you will come to the Crypt of Lucian and immediately earn 80,850XP. There will be a waypoint and puzzle waiting just ahead.

To solve it, first, you need to create some blood on the iron grate, as shown in the picture below:

Cast Blood Rain on this grate, then cast Bless on it. If you do not have Blood Rain, you can attack yourself for some blood.

The second step is to align the pipes. Interact with the altar and pick the 2nd option to align the pipes. There are multiple ways to achieve this; here's one of the solutions:

Once you have aligned the pipes correctly, cast Bless on the blood surrounding the iron grate, then quickly touch the altar and pick the first option to activate it. The puzzle will be solved and the coffin of Lucian will be moved, revealing a secret hatch. Enter it.

You will come to a place called "Line of Anguish". Interacting with the door ahead will give you a warning. Be careful; when you enter this death room, you will meet with a bunch of source puppets who will interact with the levers and annoy the crap out of you, inflicting annoying statuses such as the cow status and the like. They can be permanently killed by stripping their magic armor and then casting Source Vampirism on them, and you can also use area effect spells to destroy many of them in 1 go. When they are all dead, pull the five levers bearing the initials that spell "POWER". In this case, Potency-Order-Wisdom-Empathy-Righteousness; the sequence does not matter. You can also use one character to turn invisible and activate the levers while your other characters are in battle with the puppets; this will kill all the puppets. The puppets give no XP, although each one killed has a chance of dropping puppet beads (which can be used to make Apotheosis scrolls) and source orbs. The picture below shows the location of the levers:

After activating all the levers, the barriers will be cleared. It is time for the final battle. Make sure you are ready before you enter the real Crypt of Lucian, because after this point, you can no longer go back. Ensure you have finished all the quests, memorized your best skills, and equipped your best gear, because the end draws close.

This marks the end of Act IV. Divinity awaits.

      SPOILERS: TO STOP THE PUPPETS: Pull the levers which first letters spell P-O-W-E-R and that will destroy all the puppets. There are TWO final battles: Choose to fight everyone by refusing to sacrifice yourself, OR agree to sacrifice your source and find out that Vredeman is Braccus Rex, then fight him with Dallis and Lucian as allies.

        The dev. that came up with the doll encounter should be fired. From a cannon. Towards a brick wall. Made of rusty nails, sewage and toxic waste. Multiple times.

          That was a *****ing joke I found using staff of Magus to drop the magic armour then source vampirism the best way. Still took me over 2 hours ...

            It is because of fights like these, that people never bother finishing the game. This isn't fun. It's so much time wasted being annoyed as*****.

                ------------------------SPOILER--------------------- Lucian - You can pass his judgement, Path of Blood to pass ement(Path of Blood), You need to be really pure person. requisite is below. 0. Don't say any against virtue to the statue or lie Don't do any thievery 2. Don't do any murder 3. Don't help any Voidwoken (It may count to help Black Ring. of course, Covenant does.) 4. Don't "drain" any source of people (taking source-liquid may be ok) Because you've killed a lot of people, You can't pass 2 and statue kills you. so I just hired new character, He/She can pass the judgement as he was just created a bit ago! With pure person, Statue of Lucian says "THOU ART PURE." then bless him with flying status as like You cast wing spell permanently. You can use flight every turns as It doesn't expire. Anyway, It'll be difficult to have his bless. Because the one should not kill anyone else. (I believe undeads or animals are ok to kill.) After the ending, I think I will try this challenge.

                  See to it that the amulet you get from the toymaster is filled with source, if even one point of source is not present it will fall to the ground

                      For the past ten minutes I've been stuck in an endless loop in which a moppet runs towards switch, getting out of range and ending combat, prompting it to run back to its original position, which restarts combat, which sends it back towards the switch, which ends combat., which sends it back towards original position. Such a great game, but some of the bugs are, well, terrible.

                        if for some reason you are short on source orbs or puppet beads just continue to farm the puppets for awhile. They drop both on their loot table. It can be quite useful for scroll crafting.

                          I spoke to the statue with a mercenary I just recruited. I told it I don't steal, I don't murder innocents, I reject the void, and I don't consume other people's souls. It accepted the answers and gave the mercenary permenant wings.

                          I spoke to the statue with my custom made main character and the 3 origin companions I picked and I got struck down right at the first question on all. Lol.

                            BEWARE the lever picture on is wrong.
                            the middle one on TOP LEFT is wrong one.

                            You can skip the whole puppet fight with rogue stealthing the levers (i had 50wits)
                            puppets despawn/die when all right levers are pulled.

                              You only need to cast bless once
                              1) Cast rain blood on the iron grate to allow your blood to flow down to the puzzle
                              2) Choose option 2 of the Altar (or teleport/retreat/jump/dive via right side) to arrange the puzzle so that it allows the flow of the bless fire, bless water and blood (to be blessed later).
                              3) Choose option 1 of the Altar to start the valve so that the bless fire, bless water and blood to reach the 3 big bowls at the end
                              4) Only when the 3 bowls are filled with bless fire, bless water and blood, then Cast bless on the blood (iron grate) so the last bowl is filled with bless blood.

                                found 2 annoying bugs along the road. one with the puzzle, there's a L piece that no matter how you turn does the same thing, the 3rd from the lower blood valve. directs upwards even when it should block or go down.

                                second with the puppets where you need to spell POWER, a loop happened when a puppet died and rebirthed in the same spot and for some reason took action again, died again, repeat near to infinity. took about 5 minutes to not die and complete his turn so that the next round could begin.
                                the cleanest way to go about it is to sneak and activate the levers with one character without triggering the puppets.

                                  Note it is possible to interact with the statue and pass, you however cannot admit or do the following:
                                  Commit theft of any kind
                                  Murder any innocents, possibly counting those whom were not hostile at first
                                  Have any affiliation to the Void
                                  Consume Source through Source Vampirism outside of the tutorial sequence (?)

                                  Doing so reveals the hatch and bestows the successful player with special permanent buff.

                                    So I cannot get the hatch to open. I have tried reloading way back, i have gotten a fresh hero, i have used all the source and then refilled it, i have overfilled it. Nothing will open the hatch despite the game saying i have done everything and the hatch has opened. It returns the amulet to me with all the source left in it.

                                      I would add this sentence to the start instead of leaving it to the very end:
                                      (Alternatively, try to hire a new recruit from Hall of Echoes to handle the path of blood)

                                      I don't understand why such a important fact is left in the middle instead of the start.


                                      If you choose to serve the God-King the altar will be destroyed and the barrier will be destroyed allowing you(forcing?) you to move down and physically move each block yourself.

                                      One cool thing that happens is that you can create your own blessed blood, blessed fire, or blessed water in the pools yourself. Remember since you're serving the god-king you'll have curse not bless. I needed to hire a merc to bless a fire I created and it cleared the holy fire requirement. This might be useful if you need to finish 1 pool or maybe 2 at most. I think it would be difficult to do all 3 without the puzzle's assistance because the effect fades pretty fast. But some people have no prob.

                                        You can use your teleport pyramids to teleport towards the bowls and you can pretty much skip the puzzle haha

                                          You can bless the blood after it's finished travelling. Also you can cast blood rain on farthest top right corner of the maze while the blood is blessed to brute force your way through the bug.
