For this quest, you must travel to the Temple of the Sun God shown below.

Tier 1: Clear the temple courtyard of cultists

The first part of this quest is fairly self explanatory.  There are cultists in front of the temple.  You need to make it so that there aren’t quite so many.  Kill the required 12 to more onto Tier 2 of the quest.

Tier 2: Find a way into the Temple & Proceed to the Ritual Chamber Upstairs

In order to enter the temple, you must defear the four elemental keepers that guard it and obtain a buff from slaying each of them. The four keepers are Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water.  Two are on the upper platform, and two on the lower platform.  The order in which you slay them does not matter, as the buff you receive lasts for 20 minutes.  Once you have all four buffs on yourself, you will be allowed entry into the temple through the bottom-central doorway.

Tier 3: Vanquish the Elemental Guardian

When inside, you will be faced with an Elemental Guardian.  It may be a good idea to kill the two bugs on either side of the room first before continuing, because you may need the extra space to safely kite him around the place.  As his HP drops, he will spawn little guardians of water, fire, earth, and air.  The good news is that they have very little hp, and all of their attacks are ground based.  This means they will never auto attack you, and the only way they will hurt you is if you stand in the white spaces that spawn under them when they begin charging an attack.  Just keep moving around the room either AoEing everyone down, or focusing on the main guy.  Eventually they will all die and you will be able to proceed to the chamber upstairs.

Tier 4: Defeat Arbeh

For this fight, you need to use the item that you were given at the very start of the mission.  It can be found in your inventory.  Every time you click it, one of the worshipers surrounding Arbeh will turn into a bug and become attack-able.  Kill it and use the item again.  Keep this going until all the followers are dead.  Then use the item every time the boss gets a shield up / stops taking damage.   He should be easy to kill.  Just make sure to stay out of the stuff he leaves on the floor.

    Where does this start? i thought I had all the scorched desert quests finished but iI haven’t done this.

    • Volaric

      Start Locations have been added for all missions we have posted.

  • Offero

    Note: As of right now at least be sure to be facing Arbeh when you use the item or it may do no good.


    mission is bugged as of now, tried fighting in two times and once his health drops to 50% he goes into god mode with that shield and can’t be killed. i used the item over and over again and nothing happens.

    • Balderredux

      Seems to be the situation still – odd thing is that he drops from 12k to different levels, I’ve gotten him down to anywhere between 5.5k – 3.2k before he goes into god-mode. Who knows, maybe you can get him to 0 on occasion… Btw, also tried facing him when clicking item, but doesn’t seem to make a difference.

      • Quest is still bugged . I’ve attempted it 2 times my self now and he still goes into god mode.

        • Shatiras

          The quest is not bugged, just the boss, a bit.
          I’ve encountered the apparently godmode phase but realized on the second try, that his health is not 12k again, but the amount you brought him at when he got the shield up. Also spamming the item ability on him, lets you deal a little amount of dmg per use, even if you see his healtbar full, you will see his hp number dropping each time you use the item and suddendly attack him.

          • Cheesey

            Works now.Health drops then he shields and his hit bar goes full again but its not its just that stage. Watch percentage on bar bottom right, when it stops moving again, use item then fire away.

  • Allypage

    I tag teamed him…. Friend ran rings and “tanked” i shot him repeatdly from stair well out of range

  • Jovian

    You don’t have to kill the four keepers. Just put your back to the door, /reset yourself and re-spawn inside

  • kgDisq

    Yes it does work, this mission can be done. I did it solo myself Chaos/Blood kiting keeping heals up watching his HP it will go down, keep using the Artifact on him when his counter goes down then throw a few DPS on him as much as you can then keep moving, his HP will show in Yellow but his HP does go down, when his HP stops going down just move wait for the counter to go down then use the Artifact . After you kill the first wave of Bugs its pretty straight forward just you and him. “Keep moving about, else he will hinder ya” he will throw a few knocks into ya :).

    Don’t even dream of doing this solo. I’m all blue QL10 gear and I don’t stand the slightest chance of beating this boss. “He should be an easy kill.” is a total load. I use these walkthrus often and happy to have them but I have to say this assessment is way off the mark. There is just no way to move fast enough to kite anything and since the cds on healing pots render them pointless you can’t solo this unless you are well beyond it or in a group. Don’t waste your time otherwise. Now I have another quest item locked in my inventory.

  • Ian Holbrook

    i think the premise of the people that can’t do this is that you need to wait for his shield to go up to use the banish stone again, but you dont. just keep spamming it every 2 seconds. It makes the fight take longer but then you don’t have to worry about the reset.
