Per live patch first week in Nov:
Willing Sacrifice - The quest reward tells the player they're going to get a belt. The rewarded object is now correctly set to a belt.
Per Patch 1.60:
- Willing Sacrifice: Players should once again be able to summon High Priest Andania with a willing sacrifice.

Hi DAoCers I finished the new Albion Quest from the Sep/2002 Patch its called Willing Sacrifice. This quest is slightly different from the normal quests in that it almost requires a cleric and a stealther of some sort. I am a Cleric (lvl 20 when I got the quest) so I just needed to get the stealther luckily a 17th lvl Infiltrator was doing the quest at the same time. (Thanks again Kely.) I have no Idea What lvl the quest is but it yeilded some mighty fine items (The infiltrator gave it a 5/5)I personally chose the belt (needed a new one) it was a lvl 19 magic item.

Step (1) Talk to Brother Codeth. He is in the guard tower north of Prydwen Keep Bridge. He asks if you go to services regularly. If you say yes he seems pleased, and tells you about the Cult of Mithra. He also asks if you are willing to help mentioning that someone must be willing to sacrifice them selves. He also tells you about a password the cult has and that must be discovered using stealth. He finally gives you his journal on the subject.

[Step #1] Check Brother Codeth's Journal to see what to do now. To use: After you've dragged Brother Codeth's Journal to your hotbar, press your Use Item Key and click on the journal icon in your hotbar.

Step (2) You must read his journal by putting it in a hot key and using it (default key for use is e).

Step (3) The journal tells you the first test that many cultist must undergo is given by Anilius. You must kill him. He is in mithras West behind the room with Favonius Facilis and Virulis.

Step (3) Read the journal again and it tells you to kill Favonius Facilis and Virulis.

Step (4) Read the journal it mentions a being that might tell of the password a forgotten Being.

Step (5) You must kill Forgotten Promise. After you kill it, Promise say that he has not forgotten the the
room where the password might be located is west, then north, then west, then north.

Step (6) For this step you need to use stealth to get the password it is Heliodromus. you will be attacked kill them and you can proceed to the next step.

Step (7) For this step you need a cleric with you to rez you. Read the journal it tell you that Acolyte Naseita must compleat the ritual so that you may follow the slave to High Priest Andania. To complete the ceremony someone in the party must die, don't fight him just let him kill you let your cleric rez you. Then wait for the slave to spawn and then follow it.

Step (8) The Slave leads you to the room where High Priest Andcnia Spawns. Wait for that to happen then kill him.

Step (9) Return to Brother Codeth and give him his journal back. He then asks for the password of the cult. He then offers you one of eight items.

Contrary to previous reports, a stealther is not needed. I sent my sim in rather than stealth, and he "killed" the password out of the guys who had it after Forgotten Promise.

Another comment: You don't need a cleric either. I just let the Acolyte kill me, waited until he summoned the slave (not sure if you need to wait, I did just to be safe) then released back to the lifestone. When I got back I just searched the lower areas of the tomb until I found the High Priest and I killed him.

gained two levels (15-17 with no FL) just fighting greens and blues, and the yellow nameds... and ended up choosing an oj quarterstaff, also named... as my prize, very nice. I meant to grab the loc of the final mob, but mainly, if you start running into Priests of Mithra you are on the right area.. oh, btw.. my Friar, Angeljolie, soloed it all.

Good luck, mates.
pretty, pretty nice

I got this quest on my fire wizzy, went in with a inf friend, and he stealthed in, but i kept getting the 'being quiet' message while he got nothing. We tried it about 10 times, but never got the password. How the hell do you do this quest if your not on a stealther? Do i have to find some stealther who needs the quest as well. This is a pretty rediculous quest to give a non stealther!

How do you get the password without stealth? What room do you go to? Who do you kill?

I tried using my lvl 15 reaver and my bro's lvl 42 Pali to do this quest (to get as many items as i could ;)) but when it comes to the sacrifice bit, the acolyte keeps running after the pali even tho we tried putting him on the other side of mithra!? Also i cant seem to get the password with the reaver >(. Anyone got any solutions for me pls?

Getting the password
# Apr 22 2003 at 12:42 AM Rating: Decent
We killed the mobs in the room (Malevolent Disciples?). Each of us eventually got a sealed scroll in our inventory. We ended up each soloing a mob until we got it. You then equip the scroll to break the seal and the password is given to you.

Also, the slaves that Acolyte Naseita summoned only attacked us. He summoned about 5-10 of them and then took off running. We had to follow Naseita to the High Priest's room. There is a constant flow of Mithra Followers that attack you, so bring friends. They were blue to me at lvl 15 and the High Priest was oj.

Just curious if anyone can help - followed the directions to the room, and get the quest message about people talking and being quiet upon my aproach, having no groupmate with stealth, what are the mobs that you have to kill? We killed priests for about an hour, with nothing giving us the "password". Anyonehave any suggestions?
Thanks for your help.
