The Crypt of the Three Sisters is the last mandatory battle in The Tombs quest. The battle takes place in the southwest corner of the area (see map above marking the three banshees) and begins with a cutscene. 

During this three banshees will appear and say the following, which turns out to be a riddle of sorts:

  • The order has been ordained and can't be broken! (Lady Vespera, middle)
  • Dawn must follow night! (Lady Nox, right)
  • Night follows twilight! (Lady Auroa, left)
  • Help us children of the night! (Lady Vespera)

At this point, 17 additional enemies will appear in the room and the battle will commence. The three sisters will stay at the back of the room and cast long-range single-target spells at you until defeated. The other mobs are all weak melee units so shouldn’t cause you much trouble. However, the three Banshees are a different matter.

You must defeat all units to complete the battle. However, the twist is that the three sisters must be killed in the correct order. If you reduce a sister to 0 health and it is not her turn to be defeated, she will simply return to maximum health. To work this out, consider that:

  • Vespera is the evening star
  • Nox is the Roman goddess of night
  • Auroa means dawn in Latin

This makes the order you need to defeat them Vespera, then Nox, and finally Auroa. Get close to them and defeat them in the correct order and you’ll find them simple to take down, as they have no armor and do not regenerate outside of the order mechanism. 

Once completed you can head north out of the room and either head west to complete The Tombs quest or head east to tackle the Cursed Chest in the final crypt. Don't forget to open the chest you'll find behind the three sisters' tombs (which you can see in the image at the top of this article) for some random equipment items and gold.
