The Dark Altar was the key to Xeric's power. Because of it, he was able to rule Kourend unopposed for nearly a hundred years. Once he was finally defeated, he came to Quidamortem and built the Chambers of Xeric.1,001
This altar, it seems to give off the same power as the Dark Altar.1,000
I believe so.998
It appears to be manmade. I believe this altar was created to amplify the power of the Dark Altar, allowing it to reach areas it previously couldn't.997
The altar here is still giving out power. That means Xeric could have potentially used it to live for hundreds of years after his defeat. It's long been believed that Xeric eventually died here, but what if he didn't?995
Indeed. I'm going to stay here and continue working. Do you mind heading to the Library to let them know what we've discovered.994
Hmmm, I can see why he would take an interest. Very well, go let him know what we've found.994
For many years we've tried to work out how he managed to survive out here without the power of the Dark Altar. Thanks to this cave, I think we've found the answer.815
This discovery does bring about an intriguing question though.680
At the summit of this Mountain we've found an ancient temple and a vast network of caves delving into the mountain that we believe were formed by Xeric.161
My name is Gnosi. I am here to assist the Varrock Museum in their research.150
The discovery of this cave could change everything. We might finally be able to discover the link between the Lizardmen, the Chambers of Xeric and Xeric himself.147
We're studying the history of the region, origins of the Lizardmen and how it all connects to Xeric.143
Xeric was an incredibly powerful dark mage. He ruled Great Kourend for ten decades.143
The discovery of the Chambers tell us Xeric invested significant time and resources on the mountain, yet it was never documented.131
While much of Kourend history under Xeric remains unknown, it is very surprising to discover such a huge area that was previously unknown to us.130
We've known about the Mountain for many decades but haven't been able to explore due to Lizardmen blocking the way.118
But now that Shayzien forces have cleared the path and discovered the Chambers of Xeric in the process, there is much to explore!111
If you'd like to find out more you should visit the Historical Archive at the Grand Library.109
Of course, though be careful - the dangers of the Chambers of Xeric are as yet unknown. You should take a strong group of companions with you.109
When he ruled Kourend, we know Xeric performed experiments on the living, using power drawn from the Dark Altar. After he was overthrown, he would have needed a new source of power.73
We believe this altar is that source, it seems to act as an amplifier for the Dark Altar.37
As for what he used the Chambers for, that we still don't know. There's a lot of creatures in the Chambers, maybe he used them in his experiments.30
He must have also had some form of teleportation in order to reach the Temple unnoticed.24
We believe he came here to seek it. Xeric would also have required a source of many creatures for these experiments, and the Chambers certainly contain many of those!24
With time and careful study we will uncover these secrets and be able to answer these questions.24
