Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Mazoga the Orc[edit]

After the Knights of the White Stallion quest, Mazoga spends most of her time in the White Stallion Lodge or nearby; however, three days a week she hunts for Black Bow Bandits, and she will invite you along. The Black Bows you collect can be taken to Count Marius Caro, who gives you 100 gold for each Black Bow you bring to him. When adventuring with Mazoga, note that she is not essential and may be killed at any time.

Mazoga will loot Black Bows from corpses (she makes her intentions quite clear every time you talk to her), though she will only loot five bows during each hunt. You can pickpocket the bows off Mazoga, but if you want to avoid that, make sure to loot corpses before she does. Each hunt will last for a total of 16 hours, starting from 2pm on the day she leaves the lodge.


At 2pm on Morndas, Mazoga will head for the Ayleid ruin Telepe, where more Black Bow Bandits have replaced the ones you killed in Knights of the White Stallion. A maximum of four enemies can appear here, so it shouldn't take long to clear it out.


At 2pm on Middas, Mazoga will head for Rockmilk Cave. In every room, you will find Marauders fighting Bandits. In all, there is a total of 15 Black Bow Bandits. Normally you could wait until the enemies kill each other, but Mazoga won't wait, forcing you to join the fighting in order to keep her alive. If you didn't follow her, Mazoga will spawn in the second room, in the middle of a fight.


At 2pm on Turdas, Mazoga travels to Undertow Cavern. The cavern is full of bandits, but only one belongs to the Black Bows, and he is found in the first area. He is guarding a boss-level chest and there is also treasure under the water.
