Fonus Rathryon on the road towards Maar Gan

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Meet Fonus Rathryon along the road, west of Maar Gan
  2. Escort him to the Koal Cave

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Meet the Pilgrim[edit]

West of Maar Gan you will find the pilgrim Fonus Rathryon along the road who will ask you to escort him to the Koal Cave south of Gnisis.

Lead the Pilgrim to Koal Cave[edit]

The quickest route is to simply head back to Maar Gan and take a Silt Strider up to Gnisis and then head south to the cave. If you take too long to escort the pilgrim, he will leave on his own. Once you reach the cave Fonus will reward you with 150 gold.


  • You can complete your own pilgrimage to the Shrine of Valor if you have an expendable Dreugh Wax.
  • It is possible to enter the cave without Fonus noticing that you've arrived. Bringing him outside to the entrance will fix this.
