New World has many quests that players can complete to earn different rewards like New World Coins, XP, Azoth and more. One of them is the Relics of the Tower quest, in which players have to search Ancient Relics and investigate the top of Malocchio.
Relics of the Tower unlocks once you reach level 28 and complete In Search of Plunder, a quest in Cutlass Keys. It’s part of Shillie Duffy’s questline, so speak with him again when you’re ready.
Players will first have to travel to the quest area highlighted in your map. After you reach there, you will see skeletons guarding, and all you have to do is kill them to enter the Malocchio Spire. You will have to climb the stairs to find the entrance, and once you are inside, the skeletons present inside will attack you.
Loot the chest on the roof’s center platform to get the Assassin’s Musket and trigger Taskmaster Holm’s appearance. It’s yet another skeleton, but one with a hefty armor meter, massive shield, and big spear. He’s weak to lightning and strike but very strong against fire.
The boss skeleton is quite powerful and heals quickly, so make sure you have the right weapons to kill it, like Hatchet, Great Axe, etc. Your goal is whittling Holm’s armor meter down with unrelenting attacks.
You will have to beat it and talk to Shillie Duffy again to complete the quest and earn the following rewards:
101 New World Gold
