Previous Steps – Kingsmouth Steps

Dawning of an Endless Night is the main story arc for Solomon Island.  TSW is a story-driven MMO with the main story divided between Dawning of an Endless Night; Black Sun, Red Sand (Egypt); and Mortal Sins (Romania).  In between each chapter of the story, players participate in a faction specific interlude.  This TSW Guide, as with all of our quest guides, uses spoiler text so that you only receive a solution for the step you need help on.  Simply click the appropriate help  spoiler to reveal the solution you need.

 Dawning of an Endless Night: Step -8

“Enter the basement” Once you enter Savage Coast and head to the flagged house on your map, you are prompted to enter an instance in the basement.  You are confronted with a  puzzle door.  On a desk to the left is a book called “enlightenment.”  Pick it up and read it (it is in your inventory after you pick it up).

Seek Enlightenment

The man who seeks enlightenment must do the following:

Find Balance

Face Death

Burn the Past

And Climb the Pyramid

There, at the apex, his eyes will be open

Need Help with the Door?
You will find the objects you need in the room you are in.  Place the objects in the exact order listed in the book.  Yin/Yang (bottom right), Skull (second from top on left), Phoenix (second from top on right), Pyramid {top left), Illuminati (bottom left).

This will trigger a cutscene as the door opens.

“Talk to the survivors at Innsmouth Academy.”  

Enter the offices at the Innsmouth Academy where you are treated to a cut-scene with Carter, Annabel Usher and Hayden Montag.  You are given a clue to the location of a hidden Illuminati vault, go there.  You enter the old block instance, the hidden area is in the room to the very left on the first floor.  Click on some floorboards to reveal the doorway.  You are faced with a similar puzzle to the one from step-8.

In the office to the right from where you entered, you find a book called “The Order of Great Works on the desk.  The book tells you:

All things in their place under stars

The stone Lodges erected 

To the watchful eye

Upon the bones of opposers

And their symbols, buried

Need Help Finding the Objects?
Warning, you have a fight each time you pickup an object.

The Skull is in the room immediately to the right as you leave the doorway room.

The Masonic symbol is in the room at the end of the hall on the right

The Templar symbol is in the room at the end of the  hall on the left

The Illuminati symbol is at the end of the hall on the 2ndfloor (left from stairs)

The Star of David symbol is in the left room at the end of the hall on the 2nd floor (right from stairs)

Need help with the door?
Once again, place them exactly in the order listed in the book.  Star of David, Masonic Symbol, Illuminati, Skull, Templar.

You get to see Beaumont a second time here.  This time, you and he have a quick confrontation.  Spoiler alert – he wins.  You are now trapped in the vault and need to find the way out.

 Dawning of an Endless Night: Step 11

“Search the Archives to discover what Beaumont was doing here.”

Need Help Finding out what Freddie was up to?
Take two rights and go down a set of stairs.  Go to the left and around until you find a book with a pair of dead bodies near it.  You find the book and a note that suggests someone named Beaumont was involved in an incident at the Blue Mountain Mines back in 1881.

Maybe this was a descendant of Beaumont?  Exit the vaults.  You will encounter the Archivist.  He’s a big nasty fellow, but he can be killed using ranged attacks and good avoidance of the circular area of effect attack he does.  The caretakers can also be killed for loot and xp.  Exiting the archives requires solving one more puzzle.  There are four icons on the ground, standing on one lights it up.  The goal is to light up all four icons and a secret door opens.
