In the vast world of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, there are numerous side quests that offer exciting challenges and rewards. One such quest is Motherly Love, which revolves around avenging a grieving parent who seeks justice for her lost children. This guide will walk you through the steps of defeating the Undead Erlik and completing this quest.
To begin the Motherly Love side quest, you must first reach The Depths region of Mount Qaf. While you can access this area anytime, you will naturally come across it during The Tiger And The Rat main quest. Alternatively, you can go down with the Citadel Elevator from The Haven and follow the path to the location on the map below.
Look for a conveyor belt leading up with spinning blades around it. Progress upwards until you find a secluded section to the right, where the Old Woman awaits.
The Old Woman will share her tragic story and ask for your help in avenging her children. Accept the quest and prepare yourself for a fight against Undead Erlik.
Where To Find Undead Erlik in Motherly Love Side Quest
To find the Undead Erlik, head to the left (west) from the initial area where you fell in the main story or from the Old Woman’s location. Keep going, and you’ll eventually come across a dead end where you’ll find the boss taking a little nap. Take a look at the map below to see exactly where it is. This battle will be similar to the one you had with the Erlik in the Hyrcanian Forest.
The boss has a single normal attack and a few red attacks. The normal attack involves charging at you, which can be easily parried with precise timing. The red attacks consist of projectiles and frontal or rear attacks. To dodge the red attacks, swiftly dash through the boss as soon as you see the red glow.
After defeating the Undead Erlik, head out of the room. But hold on tight because the Old Woman is about to transform into a Creeper and start another battle. Take down the Creeper to finish the Motherly Love quest in PoP: The Lost Crown.
Just a quick note: If you happen to defeat the Undead Elrik before meeting the Old Woman and accepting her quest, no worries! She’ll still appear after the boss fight and automatically trigger The Trap in The Depths side quest. To complete this side quest, you’ll need to take her down as a Creeper.
At the end of the Motherly Love or The Trap in The Depths side quest, you will be rewarded with the Indomitable Spirit Amulet, which increases the power of all your melee attacks when your health is low.
