Northern Forge released Towers of Olympia in February 2023 as a massive piece of "longform solo end game content" available to players of T9 and above in both Orna and Hero of Aethric. Find and climb Towers out in the world to defeat increasingly stronger enemies on each floor, ending with a Titan Superboss at the top! Collect a new currency called Tower Shards along the way by defeating enemies, to customise your character with celestial weapons, augmentations dropped from Titans, and there's even 22 new celestial classes available to unlock with new skills and passive abilities. This is arguably the biggest content drop in the game's history to date!
In this guide we're going to cover everything there is to know from finding towers, how to acquire olympia tower keys for entry, the different types of towers and their final titan superbosses, mechanics behind wild tower spawning in Orna, how the total floors grow over time allowing for greater hauls of tower shards, weekly reset, then we'll delve in to the Titan Workshop and explain exactly how to spend your hard-earned tower shards to construct and upgrade your own towers, craft and augment celestial weapons, and finally unlock the new celestial classes!
Note both Orna and Hero of Aethric share most towers mechanics so any specific differences will be explicitly mentioned in the appropriate sections, otherwise you may correctly assume the sections are applicable to both games.
2. Starting Quest with Pelops NPC
Every worthy adventure starts with a quest, and Towers of Olympia is no different, although arguably the questline thus far is rather short-lived.
Speak to Pelops, a new NPC who looks like they've guarded a tower or two in their time. Pelops will give you your first Olympia Tower Key which is used to enter towers.
Once you've spoken to Pelops and started the Towers of Olympia quest, the new Tower Guardian T9 monster can now spawn in the world (cryptid rarity, cannot be cheese spawned with party resets), who can drop more tower keys (you don't actually need to complete the quest by ascending 2 tower floors, so if you fail your first tower early you can still find this mob to drop more keys).
3. Finding Towers in the World
There are currently 5 towers in Aethric with fixed map locations, giving you access to one of each type of tower:
4. Finding More Olympia Tower Keys
1. There is 1 monster that can drop olympia tower keys; T9 Tower Guardian
3. Bazaars may rarely have some in stock!
4. Runeshop $$$
5. Ascending the Towers - Gameplay
6. Wild Tower Growth and Resets
7. Titan Workshop
This is where we spend all of our hard-earned tower shards 😄
After first speaking with Pelops to start the quest you can immediately build the Titan Workshop in your Origin Town, costing 2Mil orns and 1Bil gold.
Titan Workshop is already built for you for free in the NE region of the world map with same name. You access this zone via Fallen God's Rest in the first T10 zone.
Players at T9 have access to Prometheus' Workshop in Balor town, which has all the same functions apart from the ability to construct your own towers, which can only be done in the T10 area. Make sure you unlock the waygate at the T10 area to allow fast access to your Titan's Workshop in the future!
Let's check out all the options available to use in the Titan's Workshop now...

Hopefully you found this guide useful, I will update with more information and pictures as time goes on, I just wanted to get some initial information out there in the first instance. Video guide will surely be linked below once ready also. Thanks for reading as always, and big thanks to the Arisen Orna Legends for supporting me on Patreon and Twitch! Your support always greatly appreciated 😊
Could we get a picture of the guard that we are looking for to get tower keys from? Also, more info on the chests, what do they look like and how do you access them. Maybe I just got unlucky and didn't get one in my first attempt, but I did make it 7 floors, and didn't find a chest(I didn't know they existed at that time though).
Hi Ben, have added in pictures now 👍
Cool. So two more things that I've found and don't see in here yet. One is that half-way up the tower you will run into a single big room that has a world raid boss in it as the floor guard. So far, I've seen a T5 and a T7. You just kill them and can then go on to the next level. The other is that you can run into tower guards in the battles that you get during memory hunts, I've run into two of them that way so far, which seems like a really high rate, so I suspect that memory hunt battles ignore monster rarity.
Olympia Tower Keys can appear in bazaars (0 gold)
Hi Joe, thanks have added that in 👍
