- Dimensions IV: Rifts
Even though your quest is to reach Antanas, you can’t ensure his safety with Rhogar Lords still spawning in the Keystone Monastery. You have to destroy whatever they are using traverse dimensions, before you can meet Antanas. You enter the Rhogar Realm and will meet a number of new, interesting species. The Crafter is a being that evolved and learned how to travel between dimensions. You will also get to learn that not all Rhogar are built to fight, but it seems all of them want to. After entering the Temple, straight ahead from the entrance, you will finally meet the mysterious Crafter 14 . continuing further on will lead you towards a closed gate 15 . To open it, explore the towers on both sides and find a hidden lever in each one of these. Pulling both levers opens the gate into The Holy Flame, but for now, just go through it and upstairs onto The Panorama, from where you can find a passage down to the Abandoned Range 16 below. Entering the Temple interior by the side door 17 will lead you to stairs just before the Infiltrator 18 . Defeating the boss will give you opportunity to talk to the side quest Rhogar NPC 19 - the only demon in the game that can actually communicate... kind of. You will have a choice whether you want to save the deserters or not. Obviously, your decision will affect the outcome of the game. Past the Rhogar NPC is the door and path leading to the front exit from Temple interior 20 (and a bunch of deserters outside with their own side quest). Your goal now is to head back to the Keystone Monastery through the portal at the end of The Bridge Between Dimensions 21 that you entered through.
Back at the Monastery, you can finally head towards the main part of the Citadel. A dying soldier will point you to a secret entrance through the Catacombs. The closest entrance is the gate marked with Three-Headed-Snake at the Cemetery 22 (on the Monastery map)
The Abandoned Temple has changed since your last visit. And the real nest of Rhogar lies even deeper. When you decide to enter the Abandoned Temple, Yetka 39 will ask you to follow her. At this point you can either proceed to the Flame arena and fight the Guardian boss 30 or follow Yetka to the arena where you fought The Infiltrator boss, where you will gain access to a tower outside the arena 31 . Each of these two paths will give you access to a part of the Chamber of Lies - use the Gauntlet to open the seal. You will have to explore both parts of the Chamber to pull two levers 38 that will pave way to the Primeval Armorer 32 , but the order is up to you. Once you reach the Primeval, Yetka’s quest will reach its conclusion and you will be allowed to proceed to the last Boss - Annihilator 33 .
When you defeat The Annihilator, you will now be able to face Adyr - the god. After your encounter, Kaslo will appear and explain that something’s happening in Keystone. You will be sent inside the Citadel. --> Continue to Keystone Citadel
Affter you meet the crafter, walk forward toware Yetka. After your conversation with her, head left and open a chest in the Western Antechamber that contains Wisdom Armor Set Chest and Helmet. Head down the stairs and take a left, defeat the demon dog and notice the closed gate. You'll come back here later. Now continue the way you came from and open another locked door, you will be attacked by an enemy throwing firebombs. Defeat it and find another set of stairs leading up, with a crossbow enemy. After the enemy is dead, scout this level of the building to find a Poison Resistance Shard. You will come back here once you have obtained the Small Western Antechamber Key and can unlock this door for: Ancient Plate, the legs of the Cunning Armor Set and an Attribute Point Shard. Back in the bottom level, a gate can be opened to exit the room. The following room contains a locked chest, that needs the Blacksmith's Chest Key to unlock. Pull the lever and head back to Yetka's position and towards the Eastern Antechamber.
Jump across the gap directly in front of the entrance to obtain a Magic Energy Shard. Drop down and defeat the three enemies awaiting you. Find stairs leading up and look for an indented part of the floor that holds an Energy Shard. This same room allows you to jump across a gap towards a room with a rogue enemy and a chest, that contains the Lost Pike. You can now head down to the lowest floor and find a sideroom with two enemies and another lever for you to pull and the Ancient Plate Quest Item. You can now return to the checkpoint shard, and you will find Yetka is gone. You can now access the Heart of Flame and fight your first Tyrant. As soon as you enter the open area look to your left and destory the pot, and pick up the Tyrant Heart. If you do not do this, the enemy will not die.

You can kill them to get some weapons ???, but it is difficult. If you help them, they can help you in the Guardian boss fight later on (you need to kill the tree looking Rhogar in the Western Antechamber). There will be a lone Hound near the Last Traitor Statue, if you attack him he will run off (vanish). Head down the snowy path to the left of the statue and all the way to the left. He will be there and you will be ambushed. Defeat the ambush and you will receive the Trinket: The Keep. You can now head back through the Rhogar Portal and are ready to head to the Catacombs.
