Covenant forces have scaled the walls of Davon's Watch. Now they're threatening to take the city from within its walls. Tanval's ritual may be our only hope to end the assault.


Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Defend Tanval Indoril in the Indoril House Crypt.
  2. Watch Balreth attack the Covenant soldiers.
  3. Talk to Tanval for a reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Covenant soldiers climbed over the north wall. Tanval Indoril is in danger. Holgunn tells you to protect him until he finishes his ritual.

Tanval is inside the House Indoril Crypt near where you found the skull of Nam Indoril. Once you approach Tanval, enemies will appear, and you must defend him.

Tanval will summon Balreth, a Bone Colossus, and enter a portal. The quest prompt changes to "Investigate Covenant camps," and you follow Tanval into the portal. You exit the portal onto a beach where you can see tents, some of which are on fire. Balreth attacks the Covenant soldiers.

You return to Davon's Watch where Tanval congratulates you on the defeat of the Covenant soldiers. He gives you the Indoril Pyrostaff and gold.
