Gaiden Shinji and Baloth Bloodtusk duel for the fate of the First Orsinium
Lozruth and Sharela discovered a lost tomb, but they disagree on who rests within.


Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Lozruth and Sharela.
  2. Find the keys to open the tomb in the catacombs.
  3. Explore the tomb.
  4. Learn the truth about the duel between Gaiden Shinji and Baloth Bloodtusk.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

One of the memorial pools (Tamahl's?) is located in the Eastern Halls (two rooms southeast of the main chamber in the catacombs), the other (Arakaul's?) is located in the Western Halls – however you have to go around the long way as the door is locked from the inside and there's a rock fall in the connecting passage. Not sure if the locations relate to the urns or if the first one you pick up will always be Tamahl.
