The Secret World: Mortal Sins Tier 5, 6, 7, 8, & 9 Guide / Solution

Tier 5: Go See Milosh


Tier 6: Look For Draculesti Prophecy & Defeat The Architect

Head to the castle village marked on your map.


Inside you will find Bleeding Vigil mobs everywhere.  You may choose to throw on sprint and make a run for your destination, or just take it slow and kill everything in your path on the way there.

When you get to this point near the mission marker, go up the stairs on the right side where Unfair is standing in the image below.

At the top, make a u-turn and head across the wooden walkway to get to your destination.

There is lore off the left side of the walkway, go ahead and grab it while you are here.  It’s a 10-second detour, 20 seconds max =)

At the end of the walkway you will find the Architects Diary.  Read it and the ghost of the Architect will come out and attack you.  Just because he’s dead, doesn’t mean he won’t get angry at someone reading his diary.

He has the same abilities as the enemies on the way up here.  So it should be an easy fight.  If you’re here with a friend, wait a few seconds for the Diary to respawn and you will have to kill The Architect again, as reading it does not update the mission for the entire group.  Something to look into Funcom.

Tier 7: Find The Crypt Behind The Chapel

After having defeated the Architect, make your way to his workshop on the other side of town.  The quest marker will point you right there.

When inside, you will find the Architects Key on the table.  Loot it.  If you’re here with a friend, you’ll have wait a few seconds for it to respawn, just like the Diary.

The next building is also marked for you on your map.

Inside you will find Church Records.  Go ahead and loot them.  If you’re here with a friend, you’ll have wait a few seconds for it to respawn, just like the other items in this mission.


With the diary, key, and church records in hand, it’s time to head to the Crypt.  There is only one place for a crypt to be on this map, and that’s the giant one in the center or the map.  Head in from the South-West entrance for minimal killing, or from the North entrance if you’re feeling like murdering some ghosts.  Just a note, they take less damage until they are “weakened” five time.  So make sure to slot an ability that will let you do that.

Cross the bridge and walk up to the tomb.

Put the key into the lock above the crypt door.  If you’re here with a friend, you’ll have wait a few seconds for it to despawn, just like the other items in this mission, in order to get inside the crypt.

Once inside (its a solo instance but don’t worry, no fighting), Head to the end and read from the Stone Book.

The text is incomprehensible to us, so we will need to find someone that can decipher it for us.

Tier 8: Find Someone Who Can Interpret The Document

While questing in the area, we came across Anastasia and had a cut-scene trigger when we approached.  You can watch it below.


Tier 9: Go to The Tree of Life

You are sent to the Tree of Life, so head over to it and locate the stream.  Explanation of Tier 10 and on continued at the next post, link at bottom of the page.

    Note: the cut scene (and hence, the Tier 8 Mission Objective update) won’t trigger unless you approach Anastasia from the area of the dock. If you approach her from some other direction (like from the Tree of Life Anima Well) and don’t get a cut scene, just walk over toward the dock.

    Firstly, it would be expedient to get “Knights of the Draculesti” from Tibor (the little boy in Milosh’s camp) and do it at the same time, thus minimizing trips into the hell-hole that is the graveyard.

    For Tier 7 “Find the Crypt behind the Chapel” you said: “Head in from the South-West entrance for minimal killing, or from the
    North entrance if you’re feeling like murdering some ghosts.” There is a better way to get to the Crypt with ZERO killing and a piece of Lore to boot!

    Enter the graveyard via the North (main) entrance and run right by the mobs, straight up the stairs into the chapel at the top. the mobs will not chase you in there. Complete the couple of steps to Tibor’s mission while you’re in the building if you took that mission.

    Exit the chapel and turn left (west) immediately outside the door. Jump to the stone railing, then straight ahead (west) to the low spot on the rock. Now turn left (south) and hop along to the rear of the chapel, where you will find the Draculesti Lore item on a rock outcrop.

    Now, maneuver to a spot directly “over” the crypt you have to enter and drop down onto its roof. Froim there, you can drop down carefully to the front door without alerting the guard-mob, turn around and enter your objective.

    Naturally, you will have to fight your way (or /reset) out since there is no way to go back the way you got here.

    it never says ‘follow the owl’, not that I’ve seen anywhere: there’s an owl just outside the crypt. It flows away when you approach after having completed the crypt. Probably the same old owl from the start. Or a cousin

    You can either follow it or simply go directly to where it’ll be waiting for you, by the island’s dock. It’ll fly away and over Anastasia, prepping so the cut-scene can be triggered

  • Lautreamont

    correction: the owl is perched on a pylon on the south side of the island, not quite by the dock.
