Campaign Prophecies
Region Depths of Tyria
Type Explorable area
Exit(s) None

The Mausoleum is the resting place of many nobles, and is filled with the undead.

Getting there[edit]

This area can only be reached as part of Commandeering a Mortal Vessel (a Halloween quest). Click on the Enter the Mausoleum marker in Majesty's Rest (behind Rotscale) and answer yes at the prompt. You can ignore the dragons by shadow stepping to the marker using a skill that targets allies, such as Return.


Parties will be resurrected at the starting point if a wipe occurs, since there are no Resurrection Shrines.

Interactive objects[edit]



Anomaly Anomaly.Neither the mission map nor the compass show the map of the area. In addition, the map does not show your path or become unfogged as you travel.
Anomaly Anomaly.Drops in this area have inherent modifiers, including spears and scythes, which are inscribable everywhere else.
Anomaly Anomaly.Wands, foci, and shields might have salvageable suffix mods (in addition to their typical inherent ones), unlike in other Prophecies areas. However, you can not upgrade these weapons.


  • Prior to the October 28th, 2010 update, players would be separated from their parties (and returned to their originating outpost) unless their account included Eye of the North.
  • The Mausoleum shares its map with several Eye of the North dungeons, however it does not have any sections blocked off. There are no foes or interactive objects beyond the location of the sarcophagi, allowing players to explore the entire map freely.
