Full Video Walkthrough

Tier 1

Objective:  Find a way to get Siabhra’s Air

The spirit comes and points to the book on the left as you enter… this seems to have no real importance on the next step, however, if you look back at the old spell book it gives some clues.

TSW Crossing The Black Path  Rending Spell Book


Found a shop in London named:   Annapurna , as referenced in the “Rending the Veil Chant”  spell book.

The Secret World - Crossing The Black Path - Annapurna

Head inside, you’ll find a laptop on the table towards the back. ..

The password hint on the laptop…  “Best Olives Ever”

TSW - Crossing The Black Path Laptop

If you search the shop, you’ll find…  Davi-ees Olives …

The Secret World - Crossing The Black Path - Olives

The password is…  davi-ees

I went through all 12 items under suppliers…

TSW - Crossing The Black Path - Laptop Options

Which leads you to…

Siabhra’s Air …

Freshly picked seeds chewed to destroy fair Boadicea, mixed in equal parts to calming leaves from the Capon’s Tail, and one part the maiden’s water of the roads.  Produces a thick, sedative smoke when burned.

So you’ll need to research and locate Chicory, Fennel and Valerian…


House of Chalk sells the highest quality.  I can’t convince Mama Abena to share her supplier, OR give a bulk discount.  Shrewd businesswoman.  At least her prices aren’t bad.

Go buy the ‘root chincory’ from the House of Chalk in London at coordinates ( 136,156 ) (right across the street from where you are now, the Voodoo shop..)

(Samhain Lore #1 in this room)

TSW Crossing The Black Path - Buy The Root


If normal customers ask for leaves and stalks, just sell them anise; they won’t know the difference for their tea.  For prime customers, fennel seeds should always be ordered from Marya (Kareem) +20 101 420 8991.

Head to the Corrupted Gardens in City of the Sun God, north of Nefertari The Younger, take the narrow rock bridge across, at around  coordinates  ( 281, 503 ),  you’ll spot some Pharaoh’s Fennel , pick some of this up, there are a few places to grab it.

TSW  - Crossing The Black Path Fennel


Andrzej in Bucharest — Flirtatious, let Nihar handle it.  Always specify we will only accept leaves and roots from Siren’s Lake or he’ll try to skimp on the quality.

Head to the Shadowy Forest, to Siren’s Lake.   Around the lake, or in the center near the wagon, you’ll find Siren’s Lake Valerian coordinates (953,826)  grab one of these. 

TSW Crossing The Black Path Valerian Root


So the next step, will be to combine this, open your crafting window and add the Root chincory, Pharaoh’s Fennel, and Siren’s Lake Valerian – then hit assemble, to gain the “Siabhra’s Air”

Tier 2

Objective:  Rend the veil at the stone of dawn.

Head to Blue Mountain.  Coordinates( 644,625) at the Wabanaki Sacred Site (Sobhoban Stone), this is the dawn stone being referred to.  The entrance to the area is located at coordinate (551,624)

As you run on top of the stone, the black objects are circling, you’ll see a message pop up.. “Your Skin Tingles”  … This indicates you’re in the right spot.  Once there, drop and /pray 

Once you’re praying, click the Siabhra’s Air in your inventory to open a portal!

TSW - Crossing The Black Path - Pray at The Stone of Dawn

That concludes this mission …

The follow up mission is “The Cat God“, make sure you have this before entering the portal. 

Note:  As of the writing of this guide, you’re not given this mission  automatically, you’ll need to return to Madame Roget in Kingsmouth to pick up the mission, then return back to here to enter the portal.
