Tier 10 and 11 of the Dawning of an Endless Night Story Quest in The Secret World

For the 10th tier of the Dawning of an Endless Night quest, you need to go to the Academy and through the door at the area marked on your map.
When you get inside, search room by room collecting the highlighted symbols until you have the Star of David, Masonic Symbol, The Eye, Skull and Templar Cross. The others are not needed.
The order to input them is :
1st:Star of David(Bottom Right)
2nd: Masonic Symbol(Top Right)
3rd: The Eye(Lower Middle Right)
4th: Skull(Upper Middle Right)
5th:Templar Cross(Upper Middle Left).

Order: Star of David, Masonic Symbol, The Eye, Skull and Templar Cross


This will grant you access to the Library. When you enter, there will be a cut-scene followed by a quest to find a book. In order to get to the book, you need to go to the opposite side of the room that you start out in, so hang a left or a right and work your way over, killing any custodians that get in your way. Then cross through the archway and you will have to fight the Archavist.

[Note: I had to fight him before I got to the book, while Unfair did not have him spawn until after he looted the book and was making his way out]

From the Archivists room, make a left turn and go through the tunnels until you reach the book.

After reading it, you must escape the archives. In order to do this, you need to go back up to the Archivists room and stand on the symbols on the floor in order to activate them.

Both me and Unfair just randomly stepped on them until all of them lit up and the secret passage was revealed. In took less than 10 seconds for each of us and we both do not know the exact sequence. Just experiment with it, it shouldn’t be too bad.

Go through the opened passageway, and you will have 1 monster to fight before finishing the solo instance and being ready to move onto the next part.

    Was actually able to do this without fighting the Archivist. I just avoided him.

    “From the Archivists room, make a left turn and go through the tunnels until you reach the book.”

    This is deceptive and completely dependent on which way you happen to be facing in the room after fighting (or not) the Archivist. Logically, a left or right would be as seen from the entrance of the room, but in this case that would be dead wrong! You need to go RIGHT out of the room to find the book, if you’re viewing the room from its entrance.

    Why not use cardinal directions? That in-game compass is there in our HUDs for a reason… You need to go SOUTH out of the Archivist’s room into the tunnels to find the book, then to the NORTH side of the Archivist’s room to find the floor puzzle.

    The order for the floor symbols to escape is rather simple. Start at the left and then work your way to the right to the third symbol. 1, 2, 3, and you’re out. Thanks for the awesome guides guys, you’ve helped me out a lot and I really like the format you use to present said guides. Whenever I have trouble I always go to you guys first.

      On two characters, the order that worked was 1, 3, 2. So it may have been changed since the above was posted. Reconfirmed on 3rd character, October 19, 2012: the order is 1, 3 & 2.

    It would be really useful if you’d add to the guide the actual place where the player should head to after collecting the 5 items…like pick up items then go to the office on 1st floor, far left as you enter the place and click the floor or sumtin’….took meh a while to figure out wut to do with them itemz…anywayz, awsum guides…guyz! you’re def no.1 when it comes to TSW help!
