IMPORTANT!!! IF you are somewhere around level 50, and can survive here as a higher class, or with a friend, and can kill many Shadow of the Ruins to collect his Tainted Core, and somehow get to Layis Kyther, he will give you 332,542 , 14,367,230 XP, and 1,436,722 TP per Tainted Core ×10 you give him.
Although this has been reported by multiple players, and I have tried to do it since it was first explained to me, I have yet to ever get this NPC to talk to me about this or do anything about it. There may be a prerequisite I have not performed. --Bludwyng (talk) 19:47, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
