  2. When instance is ready, click on Dimensional Device and select Enter. You have 1 hour to complete this instance.
  3. Talk to King to start. You will see Sakray is appointed as Princess Tiara's bodyguard for her marriage with a prince. Somehow you see monsters attack the palace. Kill all of those monsters to open portal to second stage (north end of room).
    Monsters: Bloody Murderer, Ragged Zombie.
  4. Talk to Sakray (132, 122). Somehow the monsters are still attacking the palace. Clear the monsters to open portal to 3rd stage (117, 137).
    Monsters: Dark Frame, Flame Skull, Wind Ghost.
  5. You will be inside a prison. Talk to King (32, 54) to advance the quest. Sakray is accused as the culprit behind the monsters attack. Cursed Spirit Thanatos will grant him the way out. Kill every monster on every jail chamber until announcement that the exit portal appears (54, 28). Quickly go to southeast corner portal as a big mob of undeads come at you. No need to kill them, but this is a good place to farm Gray Shard since this is the stage where most number of mobs appear.
    Monsters: Skeleton Prisoner, Zombie Prisoner, Ghoul.
  6. Kill the monsters. After enough monster killed, you will see king and his soldier fall on the ground. Talk to Prince, you will see that he is the real culprit. He will transform into Torturous Redeemer. Kill it and make sure to grab Gray Shard from it since it drops 2. Kill the last monster to open next portal (southwest corner).
    Monsters: Khalitzburg, Bloody Murderer.
  7. You will be inside the prison again. Talk to Princess Tiara (216, 43), and you will find out that she is dying. Kill monsters in every jail chamber until another Torturous Redeemer come. No need to kill it since Sakray will do the job. Talk to Sakray (196, 44). Now Sakray already changed, granted new power from Thanatos Spirit.
    Monsters: Dullahan, Skogul, Skeleton Prisoner
  8. This marks the end of the instance. An exit portal will appear in south east (210, 28). Before you go, you can talk to King (205, 29) to trade Gray Shards for Thanatos weapons and Gray equipment. Each weapon requires 200 Gray Shards and each Gray equipment requires 100 Gray Shards.
