  3. Read the Diary (Herbi Flax) to learn that the inhabitants of Mort'ton have been affected by the temple just northeast of the village.

Enter the house to the northeast and use both 2 Vial with the sink to fill the water. Clean the 2 Grimy tarromins and add them to the 2 Vials of water. Then, use the 2 Ashes with the vials. By doing so, you will acquire 2 vials filled with Serum 207 (3).

  4. Once you have finished making the serum, head north to the general store and use it with the Afflicted (Razmire). He will temporarily turn into Razmire Keelgan and thank you. Ask him all the available options to find out what is going on. He will then ask you to kill 5 Loar shades.


  5. Kill 5 Loar shades wandering around the village, and take their Loar remains back to the general store. Use another dose of Serum 207 on Afflicted (Razmire) again. He will take the corpse and examine it. He will then tell you to take the remaining corpses to Ulsquire Shauncy.

  8. Now, head northeast to the temple. Click on one of the walls and your character will start repairing it. Once it has been repaired for a 100 percent and your Sanctity is at least above 10%, then light the flaming altar using a Tinderbox. Use the Olive oil (3) with the flame and it will turn into Sacred oil (3). Keep repairing the temple till you reach at least 20% Sanctity. When you have gain 20% Sanctity, use the remaining Serum 207 on the flame to transform it into a permanent cure, Serum 208.

    Note: At this point, it is advised to switch to world 88, the official Shades of Mort'ton mini-game world. Make sure that there are several people repairing the temple as well as several attacking the shades, as shades can and will tear the temple down completely. Defending the temple from shades also increases your Sanctity.

Head to one of the funeral pyres scattered around the edges of the village. Use the Pyre logs on the funeral pyres and then use a Loar remains with it. Now, light the funeral pyre using a Tinderbox to set its spirit free. Pick up the Bronze key that appears on the stand.

    Note: For cremating a shade, you do not always receive a key. If you did not receive a key from burning the remains, then kill another Loar shade. Restock on the required materials and cremate the new set remains again.

  10. Take key back to Ulsquire Shauncy and use a dose of Serum 208 to cure him for good. He will congratulate and give you your reward
