Battle for the Shard Walkthrough

After completing Mad King's Breach and teleporting back to Ashwold Manor, return to where you left Xul and speak to him. He tasks you with killing Lethes who can be found far to the northwest in an area called Lord's Rest. Make your way there and begin the encounter.

Lethes will have a similar but more powerful moveset compared to her Simulacra fought in the previous quest. She will periodically summon a Bone Golem to assist her. When you see a large red circle on the ground, move away as the Golem will enter the battle with a powerful stomp move. Lethes also summons several spirit skulls that travel in a line slowly moving towards their target. They have good homing but are very slow and can be outrun. Classes with summons such as the Necromancer can practically ignore this move as the skulls will almost always go for the summoned creatures. Lethes can also perform a bone spike move telegraphed by a large red rectangle aimed in front of her. After a brief pause, bone spikes will jut out from the ground along the path. Finally, Lethes will frequently use a blood-skull barrage where she fires projectiles in 360 degrees all around her several times. There are gaps in between each set of projectiles where you can safely stand.

After defeating Lethes, collect the Worldstone Shard she leaves behind and speak to Xul once more, who will arrive shortly after your triumph. He postulates that it was another Simulacrum you fought and Lethes had survived and escaped once more. He continues his pursuit of his apprentice and bids you well on your journey. This concludes the questline for Ashwold Cemetery and begins the first Westmarch questline, starting with the City of the Light quest.
