unfortunately the challenge is very strict and i don't believe it allows mo'ing with more stuff then it is stated in the miniguide . Normaly you could MO the Honorifics with skeleton reanimates and extra resistances if needed untill accessing the crafts , but i don't think you are allowed . Maby one of the admins or those in the challenge staff can confirm if you are allowed or not .
regarding the shrines , try doing terror k3kba a few times . if you never went there untill now , check this map http://docs.median-xl.com/MXLU_vXVI_Doc ... 3k_new.jpg
to see where you can find the totems and necromancers . There are also vids on youtube that can help you understand how it all goes . the skeletons and necromancers are under the effect of the totems, being immune to all types of damage . you must destroy the totems in order to kill them . the range of the totems is very high and the packs are often protected by 2 or 3 totems .
get some reanimates on at the entrance (sacrifices) so they make tank a few hits on your way to the totems .
you should find a hadfull of shrines per run , along set items (turn them into signets for more stats) and runes up to ON .
if you did not skip the ennead challenge , then you already know what to do (but i dont remember reading that you did it )
good luck !
