Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Marked target locations

Speaker Terenus has a task for you. He needs you to kill someone. That "someone" will be one of the following individuals:

Speaker Terenus will likely have given you several tasks to complete while you're in the sewers. Your first objective is to either kill a secondary mark or destroy a Dwarven Relic. The secondary target is there as a challenge, and the Dwarven Relic is too valuable to remain at the scene. Terenus doesn't want people poking around the scene of an assassination. The Dwarven Relic will be located on the right-hand side at the bottom of the stairs in the mid-northern chamber of the Sewer Tenement (on the map provided, this is the large chamber with three possible target locations in it), next to Geon Alinie if he's present.

Your tertiary objective will be to either:

  • Murder your target with a poison equipped on the weapon slot you have active when you make the kill, or
  • Kill your target with the Blade of Woe.

Finally, you'll want to escape the Sewer Tenement in under two minutes after the kill. Stepping into the entrance area counts as escaping the sewer tenement. You do not have to actually leave the area for the game to count you as having "escaped". As long as you make it to the ladder room, you're good. Climb the ladder when you're ready to leave and speak with Terenus for your reward.
