Sacrifice Of Light and Darkness


  • Examine the blue glowing ??? near the Veridical Conflux in Grauberg (S) to spawn Cetus.
    • There are multiple ??? in the area so try them all if it doesn't spawn.
    • Note: Cetus gains Dread Spikes after Aetheric Pull, so beware if you're a returning player using older gear.
  • Re-examine the ??? for a cutscene.
  • Re-enter Walk of Echoes by clicking on the Veridical Conflux or the ??? right next to it for a cutscene.


  • This fight is intended for players that are 99. If you attempt this fight below 99 you may die.
  • In the event you wipe, you will no longer be able to go back and re-enter by clicking the ??? beside a Cavernous Maw. You will need to walk to Grauberg (S) manually.
  • To make your way back to the ???, just head to (F-5) (G/H-6 is a one way drop, so you need to go the longer way).
