The Slaying Face is a quest in Seeker, Slayer, Survivor.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

If you want to secure the favor of the Slaying Face, you will need to attend to the bloodthirsty statue's demands and find victory in the Crucible's Slayer challenges.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • To unlock the Slayer's challenges, you need to retrieve a stolen artifact, taken by thieves from the Crucible archives. Accounts suggest the thieves did not make it off the island of Kazuwari, but are hiding west of the Crucible in an area of Kazuwari known as the Whakupoko Lowveld
  • After reclaiming from the stelgaer-ridden depths of the Whakupoko Lowveld (see page for details), donate the artifact to the Pool of Memories.
  • This will unlock three challenges that focus on brute force and savagery. After conquering these duels, you will face off with the final challenge, the Dragonstalkers, another pack of contenders spilling blood in the name of the Slayer. Disposing of them completes the quests and leads to you being chosen as the Slayer's champion.

ID Objectives
0 The Slaying Face
10000 If I want to secure the favor of the Slaying Face, I will need to attend to the bloodthirsty statue's demands and find victory in the Crucible's Slayer challenges.
1 Recover the Slayer's artifact from Whakupoko Lowveld.
10001 Thieves have stolen an artifact sacred to the Slayer from the Crucible archives.

Accounts suggest the thieves did not make it off the island of Kazuwari, but are hiding west of the Crucible in an area of Kazuwari known as the Whakupoko Lowveld.

2 Return to the Pool of Memories.
10002 I have reclaimed the artifact of the Slayer from the stelgaer-ridden depths of the Whakupoko Lowveld.

Offering this artifact to the Pool of Memories should allow the Crucible to manifest new challenges based on the memories clinging to it.

3 Wreak havoc in the Beasts of the Slayer series of Crucible arena events.
10003 Now that I've offered the Slayer's artifact to the Pool of Memories, I am deemed worthy of facing the Slayer's challenges.

If I wish to continue gaining the favor of the Slaying Face, I will need to compete in these savage duels. When I'm ready, the Pool of Memories will ready the Crucible for battle.

20000 I crossed paths with another pack of contenders spilling blood in the name of the Slayer - the Dragonstalkers.
4 Defeat the Dragonstalkers and become the chosen of the Slaying Face.
10004 Victory in the Crucible arena has earned me the favor of the Slaying Face.

Only one other pack, the Dragonstalkers, is of equal standing in the flashing eyes of the Slayer. If I can best them in the arena, I will become the Slaying Face's chosen.

End states
Yes 30000 I have bested the Dragonstalkers and become chosen of the Slaying Face. I should return to the Hall of Memories to determine what further trials await.
