  1. Prison Break
  2. The Cult of Orcus
  3. Shadow Fall
  4. Decimation

Other

In order to pass the Pontifex barrier, blocking you from entering the Chapel in the South East corner, you will need to have a repaired Pontifex signet ring either equipped, in your inventory, or on your toolbelt. Once inside the chapel, you can obtain the Hand of glory (Kharid-et) from atop the Orcus altar on the East side of the room.


Pylon

While Excavating in the Main Fortress area or the Prison Block, you will occasionally receive Pylon batteries. These are used to charge the 2 large Pylons found within the Main Fortress and cannot be banked. When fully charged, the Pylons will activate for 30 minutes and enable the Protection of Zaros buff; this buff will be active in both the Main Fortress and the Prison Block. While this is active you will gain:

  • +10% Archaeology experience
  • +5% Precision on your mattock
  • Access to the Shadow Realm within the Fortress possible without Ring of visibility
    • Entrance to the Praetorium war table
    • Visibility of the Ghost legionaries
  • Chance to obtain Inquisitor's staff pieces (all Hotspots and Caches within the Fortress)

As mentioned before, to charge a Pylon, you will need to use Pylon batteries on it. Each battery accounts for 0.001% of a charge and you will earn some experience for using them - more experience when 10+ Pylon batteries are added. Note that ALL Pylons in all worlds share their charge. The charge of the Pylon can be checked by Right clicking it and choosing "Check Charge".

Excavating any of the Hotspots within Kharid-et while the Pylon is active will complete the "Warm Glow" Achievement.


Praetorium War Table

This is a location found within the Main Fortress, however, it is not always accessable. To enter the war table, you must either be wearing a Ring of visibility, have claimed Sliske's gift to see the Shadow Realm (requires completion of Fate of the Gods), the Pylon (see above) must be active, or you must have activated all 8 Anchors.

Within the War table, you will find 3 Hotspots (listed above) as well as 1 Research study location.


Anchors

Around the Main Fortress are 8 pink diamonds mounted in the walls. These are anchors and they can be powered by using 10 Pylon batteries on each one of them. Note that to access all 8 Anchors, you will need at least 58 Archaeology as a repaired Pontifex signet ring is required to reach those within the Chapel.

Powering up some of the Anchors will cause a Ghost legionary to appear. Interacting with various ones of them will result in them presenting you with materials. Which ghost will give you what depends upon which one you interact with first, however, you will end up with the following once you have activated all anchors and interacted with all ghosts: experience dependent upon your level, 20 Zarosian insignia, 30 Tyrian purple, 30 Goldrune, 30 Blood of Orcus, 40 Ancient vis, 40 Samite silk, and 50 Imperial steel.

Ghost Legionaries can be found with the following Anchors:
