Per patch 1.90 (09.05.07)
- The NPC guild leaders in Albion (Dostram, Bishop Kustan, Master Narudos, and Sir Amren) will no longer accept Nimue's letter for Rest for the Dead (Epic 9) from classes that don't belong to their guild.


Must perform epic quests 1-8 for your class before you can be given this quest. Unlike class Epic quests 1-6, this quest, like Epic 7 & 8, can be done by all classes.

1) This quest begins with same npc you have begun all epic quests 2-8. After you speak with that npc all classes will be directed to speak with Lady Nimue...

3)Be sure to have some friends with you for this quest, even if you are lvl 50! Head to the entrance of Stonehenge in Salisbury Plains,do not zone in, /USE Laeryn's Wand to be teleported into an instanced dungeon (just like in Epic 7).

4)Once inside look for Vortigern, approach him and /USE Vortigern's Amulet, you will be teleported to his burial chambers.

5) You will reach a chamber where there is a wind whirl blocking the passage and a popup tells you to find the right alcove to clear the way. The wrong alcove makes a bunch of yellow and orange mobs appear. For me it was the first alcove to the left.

6) Fight your way down the hallway along the way you will meet Chancellor Etham(who is neutral), speak with him. Chancellor Etham tells you that in order have an audience with King Vortigern you must defeat Vortigern's Champion, purple con to a lvl 50.

7) Once Vortigern's Champion is dead head to King Vortigern and kill him, the king will not want to talk to you. He immediately attacks he too is high purple to a lvl 50.

8) Once King Vortigern is dead /USE the want to return to Lady Nimue, she will then give you a note to take back to your guild leader (the NPC you have started this quest with)

9) Give Lady Nimue's note to your guild leader to receive your reward.

lvl 50 received 1,303,262,080 exp,1 gold and a full set of epic armor.

i am inf returning after a year and it seams after a week no-one does this anymore. so not at 47. thx would be nice to get form killing the mobs, and getting the armor. to help lvll with cause it has a nice start sats /skill stat kit.
but not anymore.

tried solo. stealthed down to the wind in the way, picked the wrong one 4 times.. you need to do with at least a healer. i got hit with a smite as soon as i poped stealth in cove 4.first 3, 1, 2.. gave up

no epic for me.
was long but not TOO hard actually...

Did this "solo" with an RR5 pally and R3L9 cleric bot.

Pally stats were crush 34+14, chants 48+4, shield 42+10, 24+9 parry. RA's were moblock 5, moblock 4, IP2 and aug str 1.

Cleric bot stats were 49+11 enchance, 22+13 rejuv and 5+11 smite. RA's were MCL2, DI2, PR2, MoHealing 3, Aug Dex 2. (should note that cleric had toa armours that gave +20% spell duration and +25% healing (smallest heal does 300, largest 458) and +25% stat buff enhancements (totals))

Mobs conned from yellow to wicked purple.

All the way up to Vortigern wasn't too hard, just slow as pallies damage output is crap. Pally kept prot/guard/intercept up on cleric, and cleric stuck behind the whole way using light heals and keeping DI2 up everytime was used up/dropped.

up to Vortigern took up about half hour, pacing self as I hadnt done the epic before and it did say to bring at least 6 people so didnt know what to expect.

Final fight with Vortigern was the only really hard part. he conned purple and took for friggin ever as he heals himself every so often.

note, if trying this, use only small to medium heals with bot as spamming large heals will cause him to agro cleric. he killed my bot and i had to slam him, rez bot, MCL for power to heal and rebuff quickly.

he never reagro'd cleric tho once i stayed on small and occasional medium heals, even when spamming them after his occasional twohanded jumping attack that would take almost half hits away (2413 buffed).

eventually got a rhythm going and it was a tie fight, not bringing him below 48% and him not being able to kill me. so i moved in cleric and had cleric attack between healing bouts. tried smiting and saw that even with only 5 smite, cleric was hitting for twice as much with smite than with weaps (24ish as opposed to 12ish lol... on my pally was hitting for between 30 and 50 on average). but smiting wasted power.

just kept the rhythm going and after about 1 hour 20 minutes he was down to 2% and i smited him to death with bot while still attacking with pally.


long story short, it is "soloable" if you have a good bot, or duoable with the right classes and lots of patience (tho other classes could probly do it better/faster like an armsman/cleric pair)
MOBS Con Yellow to Purple

Did whis with group of 6, first wave of mobs were yellow to orange. When you enter the room with the alcoves, have somebody occupy all 4 alcoves in the room. That seemed to stop the mobs, in this case yellow to orange, from spawning and allowed us to advance to next room, which contained a red with pet, and a purple mob. Kill those, talk to Etham, then the next two Mobs are purple. First one went down easy, but Vortigen has a ton of HPs and took some time, We had one cleric and that was bearly enough.

You definitely need some crowd control.
