The Trials are only available if the Minstrel tells you the tale of "Heroes and Gods at War" at ER 20 or above, if your favours with Elore total 200.
The Trials are a set of 12 fixed battles against various mini-bosses, all blocking the way to the Altar of the Trials, where Elore waits for you to prove your worth.
