The Resplendent Temple is a Tier 3 zone in the Veil of Alaris expansion.
The Resplendent Temple is the very picture of beauty and perfection, with its gleaming white bastions and immaculate arched gates. Dedicated to the god of splendor, this temple is the very pinnacle of all beauty in Alaris. All is not perfect in the temple however, deep in the heart of the temple there exists a rotten core where all that does not meet the god's standards resides.
You can get through the Temple to Pillars of Alra without even going through the KOS part of Temple.
- There are two towers in the non-kos part that go all the way high up. High enough to enable levitation across to the upper garden right before Pillars zoneline.
- Two things to note though are: a couple of KOS mobs at the very tower top that do not see invis, and the "wind trap" that drags you along (wait for it to fade before attempting to lev over).
There are two factions of nitore in the Temple.
- Order of Radiance - Everyone starts off KoS to this faction, includes probers, purgers, enforcers -- most of the mob types that hang out in the "KoS" area.
- Seekers of Splendor - Believed everyone starts at indifferent faction with these guys. The entrance, lower floors, and top garden area are populated with these guys. Killing any type of nitore is a negative hit to this faction.
End result of completing Temple Hunter (Mercenary of The Resplendent Temple) tasks is you become hated by all nitore. It's no longer safe to walk through any areas of the Temple, never knowing when you will turn a corner and bump into a see invis Elder and the ensuing train.
You can restore your Seekers of Splendor faction by killing pigs it just takes a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.
Doing the Beautiful Corpses mercenary task or the The Light Within partisan task gains you a "Nitore Initiate Robes" which should give you a faction bonus when worn. More details on the Nitore Initiate Robes is needed.
Doing the kill tasks can make you KOS to the normal mobs inside the temple.
