Tier 1

Objective: Put on the respirator and follow Tyler Freeborn into the fog

Do not enter the fog without wearing the respirator or you will die.

Tier 2

Objective: Find the source of the song

Follow the swirling light orbs. Eventually you will faint and enter the dream.


Tier 3

Objective: Search for Tyler Freeborn

Jump off the rock into the dark void


You will land in a yard in front of a house. Head for the entrance. A voice will speak to you, listen to it while you wait for the door to open, then head in.


When you get out of the house on the other side, you can choose to go left or right. I chose to go right.

Just follow the road and defeat the enemies on your way, and you will end up here:


Enter the scrapyard and follow the narrow path. You will face Edgar and his two dogs. Defeat them and continue further into the scrapyard.

Puzzle Solution in picture below


Cross the assembled path and continue forward. The road will collapse and you’ll fall down. Just keep going! You will now face som Draug enemies. If you keep getting lost, look for a sign like the one in the picture below:


Finding the way from here is easy because attempting to go the wrong way will cause the road in front of you to collapse. Then you can just turn around and try another path. Eventually you will stumble upon this fella’. Defeat it or run past it if you can’t manage.


The rest of the path is obvious, follow the escalating road until you reach the mine, then head inside and fall down :)


You will awake, on the beach next to Tyler Freeborn..

Tier 4

Objective: Identify the body of Tyler Freeborn

Click on the respirator to see the face behind the mask.

Objective: Listen to Tyler Freeborn’s last recording

    It helps to know, thanks to a helpful player in the game, that Tier 3 is a gear and skill check. They said you need at least QL10 items and a good build to get past the Filth Town area.

    • Vikestart

      Yes, Issue 5, 6 and 7 are all balanced around QL10 gear. :)

      You should play through these missions after you’ve completed the main story in Transylvania.

  • Kurogetsu

    You can do this mission with only fighting 2 mobs. Shadow Montag and Shadow Ed. The trick is to run the left route after the red stairs.
    From stairs -> left -> right -> left -> right
    Run until the scrapyard gate (or take a dashteleport) and Shadow Norma will reset back to her spot. So you only have to deal with Montag. If you have a hard time with the familiars, you can interrupt his casting.

    (Might still be difficult in non ql10 gear. I was able to do it in ql8-ql9 blood-chaos)

  • ZodiacShadow

    …reviewing people’s comments, I suddenly realized why I had such a hard time with this. I was just using QL5-gear, having just gotten to the place where I started the Tyler-missions. Well, write that down as a success, then, at least – I beat this questline with QL5-gear. Whoop.
