Notes & Tips
Once you have the knowledge from Lord Arhu and the amulet and scroll from Toyseller, you may proceed into the cathedral. (better when you finished your companion quests and other side-quests)
In front of the Lucian's Shrine, there is a switch, put the amulet acquired from toyseller in it, then read the scroll to reveal a hatch:
When you enter the crypt of Lucian, there is a pipe puzzle waiting ahead.
(Alternatively, try to hire a new recruit from Hall of Echoes to handle the path of blood)
To solve it, first, you need to create some blessed blood.
(cast blood rain on this sink, then bless the blood to create blessed blood. If you do not have blood rain skill, you can attack yourself to create blood.)
The second step is to align the pipes, there are multiple ways to achieve that, here's one of the solution:
Once you aligned the pipes correctly, touch the altar to activate it. The coffin of Lucian will be moved and a secret hatch is revealed (This is too simplistic, see expansion below).
(1) Use the riddle option screen to turn the blocks to create 3 paths to allow the 3 elements from the bottom to flow to the matching elements at the top.
(2) Drop 1st pyramid next to the stone altar (table), Throw 2nd pyramid on the other side of the magic barrier then use 3rd pyramid to cross the barrier. Hop down to turn the 3 valves to let the elements flow to the top.
(3) Pick up the 2nd pyramid, teleport to the 1st pyramid then apply blood on the grate in front of the stone altar - when the stone coffin slides forward to reveal the hatch, enter the hatch.)
Venturing forth, you will enter a room full of levers and traps, along with some source puppets. Use Source Vampirism on these puppets to kill them, then pull the five levers bearing initials that spell POWER. (Potency-Order-Wisdom-Empathy-Righteousness)
Make sure you are ready before you enter the real crypt of Lucian, after this point, you can not go back. (make sure you have your most powerful source skills memorized, and you best item equipped)
