I should use the decanter on the blue flames blocking the door
The Forlorn One asked me to use the decanter of holy water to rescue two people trapped by the fires.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Save the man and the woman.
  2. Talk to Elynisi Arthalen.
  3. Find Tidyn Arthalen in the town hall lowest level.
  4. Talk to the Forlorn One.
  5. Defeat the echo of Vox in the crater and use the decanter on it.
  6. Talk to Elynisi again.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Forlorn One says there are two more people left to save in the village. The man is in the Salen House to the west. Use the decanter on the blue flames outside the door, and tell him he can leave. The woman is in Henim House to the east— as with the man, snuff the flames outside the door and tell the trapped woman that she can leave.

Talking to Elynisi Arthalen in the inn reveals the man and woman are her brother and mother. However, her father is still missing. Elynisi gives you the key to the town hall so you can look for him there.

On the lower level, you find a body lying on the ground. The Forlorn One appears. He is all that remains of Tidyn Arthalen, Elynisi's father. He is chained to the echo of Vox. You need to go to the crater in the center of town and defeat the echo of Vox again, so the Forlorn One can draw it into the decanter. With the echo of Vox destroyed, Tidyn is free.

Tell Elynisi her father is dead. She thanks you for freeing the town and gives you a reward.

  • There is a chance that the NPCs you need to rescue from the buildings won't be there. Logging out then logging back in should spawn them back.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
