Chapter 1: This quest starts with talking to Leon by his cabin, about his dreams of undead. The best point of reference to finding the cabin is to head towards the winding path up to Volcano Keep (Mages & Order Monastery), and when you meet Stan, continue up to the farms run by Severin. From the farms, align your compass east by south-east and keep going until you reach a pond. The cabin can be seen from this pond.

Once you have the quest in your journal, you have to track down a few Undead Lords that carry these rings on your own. All Undead Lords are found in or around the greystone ruins littered around the ruins.

#1 Given by Leon, starting the quest.

#2 If you go North from Leon's cabin, you'll come to an edge soon enough, overlooking the fall and river, and a lone tower ruin on the far side of a wooden bridge with alabaster archings. The Death Lord in this tower carries the second ring.

#3 Undead Lord in the western ruins, down the first stairs to the left.

When you have 3 or 4 rings, have a chat with Leon again to get a clearer understanding of the task. At this point Leon will mark the remaining undead lords on your questmap.

#4 Almost directly south of #3, follow the path curving around the mountainside to another small ruin.

#5 Directly east of the rear entrance to Harbour Town. You have to traverse around and up the highest point along the mountain.

After the fifth ring, you can defeat Lord Patroscon (for a nice shield). He can be found in the large cave connecting the forest where Leon resides, with the northeastern part of the island. In the main chamber, look for skeletons and a downwards entrance to more ruins. Lord Patroscons chamber is at the end of the ruins. He doesn't have a ring, and if you talk to Leon again he will tell you that now the rest of the lords is talking to him but gives no clue as to where the last undead lord is located.

#6 The last Undead Lord is hiding on the northeastern most smaller island off the main island. You have to cross through the caves east of Leon's cabin and continue towards the bridge you see on your map. Henrik is sitting by a fire before the bridge. Once on the smaller island, follow the path until the very end where it seems the island connects to the 'mainland' and you'll come across more ruins filled with gnomes on the ground level. To your right when entering these ruins, a staircase will take you down into the cellar. To your right, at the bottom of the stairs is a hidden ring that when pulled will open a secret door close by. This will take you into the catacombs below the ruins, filled with skeletons. One of these is the last Undead Lord, carrying the last Vassal Ring and a bastard sword called Traitor's Edge (55 blade damage, 52 str required to wield).

The achievement will pop as soon as you pick up the 6th ring, but remember to head back to Leon for some good xp, gold, and a few nice scrolls.
