Zone 1: Sercen[edit]

Sercen

This ruin is essentially one large room. In the corridor between the entrance and the main room be cautious about the tripwire at D, which in turn triggers a swinging mace trap (C). After passing these obstacles, some bandit opposition will likely be met. Before the large chamber is a smaller one, enclosed by two locked gates, E and F, (although you will only need to pick one open to gain access). It contains a minor loot chest and one of the nearby bandits may spawn inside. A bandit may be sleeping in the bedroll (b) just in front of gate E if you get lucky.

It is advisable to try and fight the enemies in the first half of the room as to not find yourself fighting against up to 5 enemies at the same time. Stay on the right side of the room and claim the Welkynd Stones from their pedestals or off the ground. The far end of the room holds the Bandit Ring Leader (A), the boss-level chest (B) and a bedroll (b). Stay on the left side of the room and head toward the small room in the left corner that contains a minor loot chest. Collect any remaining Welkynd Stones from the left side of the room, retrace your steps to the entrance, and leave through Out.
