This is the task that must be completed in order to access Crystallos, Lair of the Awakened. To finish this task, you will also need access to the non-instanced Meldrath's Majestic Mansion (granted midway through this task.

NOTE! Make sure to actually get the "Beyond the Barrier" task before picking up containers or doing any combines in this task.

For locations related to this task, see these maps:

Dragonscale Hills Loping Plains Hills of Shade Meldrath's Majestic Mansion Basement

"Beyond the Barrier" is the main task. It is obtained by speaking with one of the four siblings involved, all of whom are located in the Dragonscale Hills:

Aring: -25, +1815 (southwest alcove)
Jashy: +165, +375 (south area before brownies)
Tonas: +2200, -50 (middle of map)
Vesiss: +1860, +2275 (far midwest of map)

Each has the same dialogue:

You say, 'Hail, Tonas'

Tonas says 'Greetings _____. I pray that your days are [brighter] than mine, and I wish you well.'

You say, 'Brighter?'

Tonas says 'My heart is heavy with worry. I am here in these hills searching with my siblings for our lost brother. Our brother has always been rash and after a falling out with the rest of us he made his way here, alone. We have come to [search] for him for we fear what would happen if we did not.'

You say, 'Search?'

Tonas says 'My siblings and I all have a certain affinity for each other, one that is subtly magical in nature. No matter the distance we can always find each other. Or at least that was true until very recently, in the case of our brother. We sensed that he entered a stretch of hills in this area but he [vanished] from our sight sometime after. I cannot express to you the worry that this has caused us.'

You say, 'Vanished?!'

Tonas says 'In the south eastern area of this region there are strange prismatic hills of unknown origin. A strange substance has taken root there and pools of still prismatic liquid have collected in various locations. Beyond these hills is a barrier that we are unable to pass. It is our belief that our brother has somehow moved past this barrier and is [lost] to us now.'

You say, 'Lost?'

Tonas says 'Try as we might, my siblings and I are not strong enough to pierce this barrier, although we have divined a way that another might accomplish this feat, if that individual was stronger than we. Would you [dare] to try?'

You say, 'I'll dare'

Tonas says 'Excellent! To succeed you will need to assemble a ward that should provide you with the means to move beyond the barrier in the Prismatic Hills. Come, I will show you one of the small tasks you must perform to accomplish this feat. My siblings and I will each have such a task for you and when you have accomplished each the deed will be done. I beg of you to find our brother and bring back word of his health!'

You have been assigned the task 'Beyond the Barrier'.

(You are also assigned one of the 'Our Lost Brother - Find the Container' tasks.)

Locate Tonas and help him with the task of obtaining the crystal base. Locate Vesiss and help him with the task of obtaining the crystal base. Locate Jashy and help him with the task of obtaining the crystal base. Locate Aring and help him with the task of obtaining the crystal base.

Help Tonas by obtaining the Clear Crystal Base 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

This step updates when you pick up a Clear Crystal Base, a container groundspawn in Falrazim's cave in the Dragonscale Hills (marked on this map).

If you do not have the task Our Lost Brother - Find the Container I from Tonas, you can get it by saying the keyword "dare". While you MUST pick up the container, the sub-task itself isn't actually required for Crystallos access. It is only necessary to spawn some named golems later on.

Help Vesiss by obtaining the Cloudy Crystal Base 0/1 (Loping Plains)

This step updates when you pick up a Cloudy Crystal Base, a container groundspawn in the Loping Plains (marked on this map -- location -100.24, -2703.64, 334.74 in a minotaur cave - entered along the steep cliffs just west of the Steamfont Mountains zone).

If you do not have the task Our Lost Brother - Find the Container II from Vesiss, you can get it by saying the keyword "dare". Again, while you MUST pick up the container, the sub-task itself is not required.

Help Jashy by obtaining the Glowing Crystal Base 0/1 (Hills of Shade)

This step updates when you pick up a Glowing Crystal Base, a container groundspawn in the Hills of Shade (marked on this map -- in the undead caves in the southwestern part of the zone - the container is in the same 'room' with Bimbalicus the Soulbleeder).

If you do not have the task Our Lost Brother - Find the Container III from Jashy, you can get it by saying the keyword "dare". Again, while you MUST pick up the container, the sub-task itself is not required.

Help Aring by obtaining the Light Blue Crystal Base 0/1 (Meldrath's Majestic Mansion)

This step updates when you pick up a Light Blue Crystal Base, a container groundspawn in the graveyard of Meldrath's Majestic Mansion (marked on this map). The quickest way to get here is through the entrance from the Steam Factory. Head straight through a door, all the way down the hallway. The door at the end leads to the graveyard. As most mobs see invis and are high density, you will need either a very solid group, a small raid, or a Divine Aura cast upon you to train your way through.)

If you do not have the task Our Lost Brother - Find the Container IV from Aring, you can get it by saying the keyword "dare". Again, while you MUST pick up the container, the sub-task itself is not required.

Continue to help Tonas by creating the Clear Crystal

This step updates when you combine the Essence of Decay and Essence of Life in the Clear Crystal Base to produce a Clear Crystal.

For more details, see the sub-task Our Lost Brother - A Clear Crystal. This sub-task is not technically required, and is only used to spawn the named golems involved. As they each drop six essences, you don't have to have this task as long as someone else does.

NOTE: Essences can be pre-looted.

Continue to help Vesiss by creating the Cloudy Crystal

This step updates when you combine the Essence of Water, Essence of Thunder, and Essence of Arcana in the Cloudy Crystal Base to produce a Cloudy Crystal.

For more details, see the sub-task Our Lost Brother - A Cloudy Crystal. Again, this sub-task is not technically required.

NOTE: Essences can be pre-looted.

Continue to help Jashy by creating the Glowing Crystal

This step updates when you combine the Essence of Fire and Essence of Icicles in the Glowing Crystal Base to produce a Glowing Crystal.

For more details, see the sub-task Our Lost Brother - A Glowing Crystal. Again, this sub-task is not technically required.

NOTE: Essences can be pre-looted.

Continue to help Aring by creating the Light Blue Crystal

This step updates when you combine the Essence of Rage, Essence of Sadness, and Essence of Mana in the Light Blue Crystal Base to produce a Light Blue Crystal.

For more details, see the sub-task Our Lost Brother - A Light Blue Crystal. Again, this sub-task is not technically required.

NOTE: Essences can be pre-looted.

Locate Laiyken 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Laiyken is located at +1984, -1090, +362 in Dragonscale Hills. NOTE: You must have all four crystals on your to get the appropriate response. You will also receive a container, so have a slot ready.

You say, 'Hail, Laiyken'

Your task 'Beyond the Barrier' has been updated.

Laiyken says 'I see you have spoken to all of the others and now have the crystals. Place them within this container and you should have what you seek. Remember however, that as long as you are within the barrier you will need to keep the Prismatic Crystal with you. The only thing I ask of you in return is that you return to me once you have ventured past the prismatic barrier and have explored the area thoroughly.'

You have been assigned the task 'Exploring Crystallos'.

Receive Master Crystal Base, a 4-slot container. Combine the four crystals to produce a Primatic Crystal Charm. You now have access to Crystallos.

Note: Don't delete this charm, otherwise you won't be able to complete the remainder of the task.



You now have access to the base Crystallos zone (non-instanced group version). The remainder of this task is for access to the raid instance of Crystallos.



Explore Crystallos 0/1 (Crystallos, Lair of the Awakened)

Complete the sub-task Explore Crystallos.

Return to Laiyken with your discovery 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

You say, 'Hail, Laiyken'

Your task "Beyond the Barrier" has been updated.

Laiyken says 'Hmm, it would seem as though he is elsewhere. By now, you must know that the four individuals you have spoken to were the warders bound to Kerafyrm. I wonder if he has found the power to phase himself from our sight. The only other way I fear we may be able to locate him is by finding a crystal shard that he lost when he first arrived. Bring this shard back to me and I should be able to fashion you a more powerful charm to locate him.

Find the lost crystal of Kerafyrm 0/1 (Meldrath's Majestic Mansion)

An Oil Stained Crystal drops from Meldrath the Malignant himself. He drops 12 crystals per kill.

NOTE: Reportedly, you can be 85'd into the MMM raid zone, loot the Oil Stained Crystal, and get properly flagged for Crystallos raids. The MMM raid flag itself is apparently not required for Crystallos raids, as long as you're able to loot this crystal. (A confirmation of this would be appreciated.)

Return to Laiyken with the crystal 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

You say, 'Hail, Laiyken'

Your task 'Beyond the Barrier' has been updated.

You have helped the warders break the seal on Kerafyrm's Lair. All that is left is to face the beast.

You gain experience!! (A lot - anywhere from 4-6 AAs worth)

Laiyken says 'You have proven to be stronger than I originally had thought.'

Laiyken says 'Interesting. It seems as though this is not actually a crystal at all. It is a scale from Kerafyrm. He truly has grown to be very powerful. With this scale I should be able to channel my magic through it to protect you without the need of the previous charm anymore. You will also be able to see the lair of Kerafyrm. If you are [ready] to venture into Kerafrym's Lair, please let me know.'

You are now flagged for (and can request) the Crystallos raid.

The Oil-Stained Crystal can be prelooted. Hand the crystal to Laiyken, then cancel the trade and that will update the task. Also, you cannot do later hails in the task without having the Prismatic Crystal Charm ON YOU. :)

It appears that they have changed this to a sequential quest.
I had gotten the crystals from the golumns on the path to chrystallos on my druid back when people were fighting and clearing these on a regular basis.
Picked up the quests, then got the crystal bases and did the combines, but got no credit.
Had to actually destroy those, and spawn and kill each mob to get flag, then combine in bases the looted crystals.

The killing of each pool guardian is now a flag in the process, so while it might still be possible to pre-loot the crystals its rather pointless, as you have to kill the mob and get the flag to finish.

A word of caution, you will need the Prismatic Crystal Charm in order to continue past the part where you "Explore Crystallos" otherwise "Laiyken" will not update the quest and as far as I could find out without deleting this quest, there's no way of getting the sub-quests again to make another charm.

You can pre-loot the containers and golem gems, you just can't do the combines before getting the quest or it won't give you credit, (as it can no longer "see" the container), & needs to "see" you do the combine to get credit for that/those task step(s) as well. [While I don't agree it "should" work this way without some in game announcement/warning type text, especially at this point since you do have the crystal(s) as proof that you completed those steps. But that's the actual mechanics of it as of this date]

I actually got the meldrath drop before I was MMM key'd. I used guild portal to the guild banner got the Meldrath drop. Got my Meldrath/Crystallos key later, did the Beyond the Barrier Quest, turned in the Drop and got Crystallos Raid Flag without MMM raid flag.

Still bugged at "exploring crystallos"

Have been crystallos flagged for months, but never camped in Fire that much.
Never really saw a reason to run and get the update since not raiding it anytime soon.

Now just to complete old quests... I tried to complete it... completed exploring crystallos, and go back to Laiyken to hail. Gives me the same message about.


"I am sorry but I am currently seeking out someone. I have no time to make idle conversation."

Any idea why the task is bugged? I did not shortcut the task... I picked up each base with the appropriate task.

If you have prelooted the Oil Stained Crystal prior to doing "Exploring Crystallos", follow these directions. Finish the "Exploring Crystallos" sub quest, then have your Prismatic Necklace and Oil Stained Crystal in your inventory. Now go to Laiyken, hand him the Oil Stained Crystal, he will then hand it back to you, your "Beyond the Barrier" quest will update once. Now hail Laiyken, he subsequently updates then completes the "Beyond the Barrier" quest. He then automatically takes the Oil Stained Crystal from your inventory and gives you the requisite AA and flag access. Voila~!

The last part of the quest is:

Return to Laiyken with the crystal

[Tue Aug 05 19:51:54 2008] You say, 'Hail, Laiyken'
[Tue Aug 05 19:51:55 2008] Your task 'Beyond the Barrier' has been updated.
[Tue Aug 05 19:51:55 2008] You have helped the warders break the seal on Kerafyrm's Lair. All that is left is to face the beast.
[Tue Aug 05 19:51:55 2008] You have gained 4 ability points! You now have 8 ability points.
[Tue Aug 05 19:51:55 2008] You gain experience!!
[Tue Aug 05 19:51:55 2008] Laiyken says 'You have proven to be stronger than I originally had thought.'
[Tue Aug 05 19:51:55 2008] Laiyken says 'Interesting. It seems as though this is not actually a crystal at all. It is a scale from Kerafyrm. He truly has grown to be very powerful.

Well, beyond the barrier seems to be bugged ATM. I just completed the "Exploring Crystallos" subquest, returned to Laiyken and he gave me some, " I am sorry, but I am currently seekiung out someone. I have no time for Idle conversation" nonsense. "Exploring Crystallos" is clearly updated on my quest, so either there's is something more to reporting back to him or I am bugged.

We, like most guilds, discovered that people have to remove their Beyond The Barrier quests for the raid because you will spawn multiple golems back-to-back. My first 4 toons which did Crystallos reported to Laiyken with the 4 crystals on their person with no problem. This week, a 5th one tried it and Laiyken gave her the same response you got. I got Beyond the Barrier again, gave the crystals to an npc after I got the base again and it updated. I asked SoE to update the other quests (so I wouldn't have to go through the MMM one again) and this was their response:


This is Senior GM Anuhadu, thank you for contacting Sony Online Entertainment. The original intent of the task was to visit the four NPCs, pick up Beyond the Barrier and the Our Lost Brother from them and run the tasks. Beyond the Barrier would update as each of the Our Lost Brothers was updated, so that when the player reached Laiyken, they had the first 8 steps of Beyond the Barrier completed. Since then, players have found shortcuts and the task has been reduced to players now only picking up an Our Lost Brother task long enough to get the Beyond the Barrier, and working from there.

Simply put, there is a work around in place now that players can perform in order to obtain the updates they need. We GMs are not helping players with these work arounds, as the original intent is to pick up the Beyond the Barrier task, and then do all of the work. Your characters will need to visit each of the locations and pick up the ground spawn items. Once that's done, you should be able to turn in the proper containers to the NPCs and get the next four steps updated.

Once you have the first 8 steps done, Laiyken should react favorably to you. If there is anything else that we can help you with, or if you have any further questions, please feel free to reply back to this petition within the next 24 hours. Good luck to you and safe journeys.

Sincerely;
Senior GM Anuhadu
In-Game CSR - EverQuest

So, it's not a bug, it's a feature! I suggested to them that perhaps they put in a 2 min respawn timer on each golem to give us a chance to get people out of the pool!

I prelooted the MMM ground spawn on my main and alt thenI went to get the quest. I had the spawn in inventory on one and not on the other. On the one that I had the container in inventory I got the update when I got the task. I did notget the update on other character when I pulled the container out of the bank so I dropped quest, put container in the inventory and got the quest again. This time, it updated :)

Just time yourselves so that you get there at the about same time. I don't know if you can actually spawn multiple golems at once, but I'd play it safe. I don't imagine the results would be pretty if it happened.

You WILL spawn multiple. After you kill the first one another will appear, after you kill that one, if someone else has another quest, another will appear. We had 4 people spawn the same golem, one right after another last night. We killed 3, the 4th was the straw that broke the proverbial camels back.

You can also just loot your corpse with those combined bases on them when you are at that spot in the quest. You'll get the update that way also.

Very confusing.

Rogue shroud works for HoS. Use sneak/hide at same time...took me awhile to work it out cos never played a rogue.
Soloed MMM ( Necro )....use the nec DA.
Went in from Mech to Steam to MMM. Invis is fine in Steam.
Hard part is getting across to door from MMM zone in. I waited for mobs to move aside a bit and ran straight across, works most times even though i was in aggro range...be quick )
There are 2 pathers in next corridor, fd and wait until they go, then DA, pick up crystal and die.

One crystal did'nt update with vessis, so gave it to him, he gave back and i got update.

Shroud won't work for MMM btw.

rogue shroud has worked for me several times in MMM...i always use the Steam factory Entrance...AND JUST AVOID THE "A BIODISPOSAL MASS" in that first room where you zone in...also, if you turn your heighth filter on...set your LOW to 50...your in game mAP will look just like the one posted in the allakhazam read-up.

Getting the MMM base is fairly easy as long as you know the path. More importantly, you also bring along a Cleric that has the Bestow Divine Aura ability or you use a LoN Divine Potion. 18 seconds is long enough to actually run in, get the base and run back out. Be sure you know there is nobody coming into MMM from the factory though. They will get pasted.

I recommend using a stalking probe (see your local gnome tinkerer) to look at where you are going first before running in.

When you get to the Return to Laiyken part of the Beyond the Barrier task, make sure you have your Prismatic Crystal Charm on you or you won't get the update. As Larth noted, he'll just say, "I am sorry but I am currently seeking out someone. I have no time to make idle conversation."

Just time yourselves so that you get there at the about same time. I don't know if you can actually spawn multiple golems at once, but I'd play it safe. I don't imagine the results would be pretty if it happened.

You only need to hail one of them. Talking to all four of them is only necessary if you want to be able to spawn the Dragonscale golems.

Hello everyone
Ok, here is the deal. I pre-looted all of my essences WITHOUT having any quests whatsoever to do with crystallos or MMM. I went around to collect the boxes, again without any quests (see above - alla says no quests are needed for pre-loot), because according to sources, they are not needed. I combined all my essences etc to get my four crystals... here is the stumper. I go to Laiyken and says that he is waiting for someone and cant make idle conversation. Alright so wth right? I go hail Tonas and he says that "he sees ive collected all the crystals. please go seek out Liayken now". Wow what do you know I already have lol. I want my Crystallos flag lol. ANYONE please help me ASAP I am on Luclin server my main is Nindail but could possibly be on Jugga or Gumdaan. Send a tell or in-game e-mail if you can help me. I will also be petitioning THANK YOU all.

Prelooting Essences is ok....making the combines is not. Once you have the Essences having the quest is required to go futher (like making the comines in the boxes).

Buddy, you are Straight Out of LUCK.

Today we did this quest with 2 groups. You can get all the containers and all the essences before you get the quest. Do not make any combines inside them before you get the quest, but you can get all the containers and all the essences, then get the quest and all the steps will update, then you just click combine on them all and they will update again. Again, do NOT combine before quest, but containers and essences before quest are fine.

Only the essences are confirmed pre-lootable. It would be advisable to have the "Beyond the Barrier" task before doing anything with the containers or combines. It only takes some dialogue to get it.

Exert from Alla's guide: For more details, see the sub-task Our Lost Brother - A Light Blue Crystal. Again, this sub-task is not technically required. -------------------------------------------That should not have been put in the guide if not true. I've now wasted many hours doing the golems and running around for the bases, not to mentino the effort, and all for nothing. And now I must do it all over again when now nearly majority of the peeps who have the ambition to get crystallos access already got it and I won't ever see the inside lol.

There is nothing in the description that says you can pick up the containers and do the combines before actually having the task.

The sub-tasks referred to are the "Our Lost Brother" tasks in which you "locate the X pool", "defeat the golem", and "speak to X brother". These tasks are optional. Their only purpose is to spawn the golems.

"Beyond the Barrier" is the grand task and you therefore have to have it. I added a line towards the top of this page to make this very clear.

I know it's been awhile but the next night after my last post, I tried to go get the bases again right? Well oddly after getting the Lost Brother tasks for finding the containers, after I found them I got a complete update for the task, meaning I didn't have to redo the golems, so I simply went around and collecting the bases again, upon which I got the update, then destroyed the base to go find another. After about 2hours, HoS base being the hardest, I got all the updates, hailed Laiyken and got my key =), but thank you very much for the bit you added to the top, I wouldn't want anyone to go through the pain I went through.

Cheers, Nindail

Well technically, the adds do spawn. They spawn outside the pool and won't aggro as long as everyone stays nice and close to the back pillar. The golems summon so make sure they don't get pushed too far out and away from the tank or they will summon him or her into aggro range of the adds. The adds see invis and despawn shortly after the named dies, so don't rush out of pool too fast.

when you fully complete the tasks and are able to spawn the golems by entering the pool do you always retain this? meaning once you are crystallos keyed do you keep spawning golems for the rest of duration of the game or once keyed do you lose the ability to spawn golems? . I was helping a group out and 2 of us both were able to summon golems, we tried to time us both entering same time but if your not it can be chaotic! specially for the thunder one where all the drakes spawn outside the pool.
anyone know?

If you complete the sub-task "Our Lost Brother - A xxxx Crystal" or drop it, you will no longer spawn the golems. This task is not required for the key, only to spawn the golems, so if two or more people in group or raid killing the golems has the task, all but one can drop it. If everyone accidently drops it, you can reget it simply by hailing the appropriate NPC. If you need two spawns, the person with task can drop raid/group before getting kill credit and can ALMOST IMMEDIATELY retrigger the golem. If you never complete this sub-task, you can still have it or get it even after you are keyed.

please update '' beyond the barrier''

in order to hail laiyken in DSH .. and get the container from him and the update to explore Crystallos.. you must have ALL 4 crystals with you along with an empty inventory slot for the container.

i know for most of us that did the final combine .. we had the essences with us for the crystal we needed . not all of them .. and the task updates as soon as you make the final combine and tells you to find him.

if you have just the one crystal on you .. he will tell you he is waiting for someone important..

i spent an hour trying to figure this out . i camped and came back thinking i was bugged . asked in OOC asked in guild .. noone knew.. now i do and wanted to save you from being frustrated and petition like i did .. and of course they couldn't figure it out either .

best of luck and hope to see you in crystallos !!

Make SURE you have at least 2 open slots in your Task list when speaking to any of the NPCS in Beyond the Barrier. When you run their text, they will give you 1 or 2 quests depending on where you are. When talking to Laiyken I didnt have a slot available so when he tried to give me the "explore Crystallos" task, it gave an error saying I had too many. Of course it updated "Beyond the Barrier" so he wont speak with me to reget that quest (at least I have been unable to find a way to get the quest again.) Petition pending, all I can do is wait because my progression is stuck :(

Good luck

I have obtained all the crytals by killing the golems... somehow I was bugged and did not get update for killing golems at two pool ... quest allowed me to make the combines with the crystals and I got updated quest to turn in combined crystals ... even for the combined bases in which I didnt get quest update for actually killing the golem ...

will the quest "fix" itself and update me for the kills I made but didnt get credit for once i turn in the completed bases upon returning to the 4 npc's origionally "dared" by?

anyone know if I would be messing up access quests for mmm and crystallos if i just go ahead and turn in the completed bases without actually getting the credit for missing golem kills?

am afraid to go any further withot knowing for sure... please advise. thanks in advance

The only quest you need to have and complete every step of (at this time) is Beyond the Barrier, so you need to have talked to one of the 4 to start everything BEFORE YOU COMBINE ANY OF THE ESSENCES in the containers. From there on, the container/pool quests can be skipped entirely. I skipped 3 of them.

Get the 4 bases and the 10 Essences and combine them all in the appropriate containers to form the 4 Crystals. Then talk to Laiyken and he gives you the combine container for the Prismatic Crystal Charm combine. Put the 4 crystals in, do the combine and you get the Charm. Zone in with the Charm in your inventory and your key goes on your keyring.

Hail, Laiyken
Your task "Beyond the Barrier" has been updated.
Laiyken says 'Hmm, it would seem as though he is elsewhere. By now, you must know that the four individuals you have spoken to were the warders bound to Kerafyrm. I wonder if he has found the power to phase himself from our sight. The only other way I fear we may be able to locate him is by finding a crystal shard that he lost when he first arrived. Bring this shard back to me and I should be able to fashion you a more powerful charm to locate him.

next step (same task):
