11: Umaril the Unfeathered

To defeat Umaril, you must travel to Garlas Malatar where he currently resides. Set 'Umaril the Unfeathered' as your active quest, and follow the arrow on your compass to reach the ruins.  Once in Garlas Malatar, head down the stairs, turn left, drop down, and activate the Push Block on the stone platform. Then, turn left and follow the passage there.

Continue following the arrow on your compass and you will eventually come to a door into Garlas Malatar Ceysel. The Iron Gate ahead is locked, so turn right and hit the Push Block on the wall there. Proceed through the Iron Gate once it is raised to reach the next room. In this room, a battle between Umaril's Aurorans and the Knights will take place. Take care not to accidentally hit one of your allies, though this may prove difficult.

Umaril's Aurorans will put up a fight in Garlas Malatar.

The Aurorans will continuously spawn, so leave your allies behind and locate the doorway leading up to the blue orb. Climb up the stairs and eventually you will find yourself on the platform with the orb. Approach the orb and activate it to destroy it. Follow the arrow on your compass to reach a stone door to the 'Garlas Malatar, Carac Abaran' area.

In Carac Abaran, follow the arrow on your compass to a room with a circular fountain at its center. Here, you will face the physical form of Umaril the Unfeathered. He's quite tough, but you may have an easier time at a higher level. Umaril not only wields a giant sword, but will cast magic spells as well. You can easily dodge his spells however; just back away after damaging him to give yourself some space.

When Umaril falls, be sure to pick up the sword he drops. Then, select the 'Blessing of Talos' spell under the lesser powers section of your character's spell book. Umaril's spirit form is essentially the same as his physical form, so go about defeating him as you did the last time. When defeat him, you can try grabbing his sword while falling. If you are unable to do so, don't fret, as it's the sword is the same one his physical form was wielding.

Destroy Umaril's spirit form to be an end to him for good.

After the battle, you will be teleported to the Priory of the Nine Basement. There, you'll be approached by Thedret. After a short chat, follow him outside to accept the title of Lord Crusader.

That's it; you've completed the Knights of the Nine questline! You are now in possession of the powerful Divine Crusader armour set. Just don't let your character's infamy rise above two, otherwise you won't be able to equip the armour pieces and will have to undertake the Pilgrimage again to appease the gods. You can have also one of the knights at the Priory follow you. Praying at one of the tombs in the undercroft will fortify one of your character's attributes permanently. To change the attribute that is fortified, simply pray at one of the other tombs.

It was a fun quest, however for a major bad guy Umaril was insanely easy to kill. Both physically and in spirit form. Kind of disappointing and anticlimatic.
