- Once a thriving source of profit for the merchant Felisa Vendu, she abandoned this old mine after workers revolted. They insisted that voices came to them from the darkness. A low whispered chanting that followed them to their sleep, driving many of them mad. Since then, only fools have entered.

There is a small camp with two bedrolls, a backpack, a seasoning sack and a barrel located just northeast of the Cauldron, sitting against a large boulder. A copy of the lore book, Noxiphilic Sanguivoria, is sitting atop the barrel at this camp. A Dark Fissure spawns nearby.

The first area is a cavernous chamber with a few giant mushrooms growing in it and the occasional fetcherfly flitting about. A standing body of water sits along the eastern wall; mudcrabs wallow along the shore.
You'll find another torchlord and an invoker further up the path. A red watcher patrols up and down the hill. A camp full of empty cages, spoiled food, some containers and implements of pain is located to their right. The path ahead of the two cultists forks: the aforementioned watcher patrols the left side, while a clannfear and a clannfear matron devour a corpse on the right. The third group of enemies is at the top of the hill. Two torchlords and a scamp guard a group of cages full of dead captives. You'll find the Final Will and Testament of Fovus Rivul among a group of three corpses, between a wooden cage and a ladder leading up to an elevated platform. Another watcher patrols the road, and two clannfear are devouring a guar corpse further up. The door ahead leads to the Oxblood's Menagerie.
This is the first boss's chamber. You will face a giant ogrim named Oxblood the Depraved. An injured villager, Drathas's uncle Avron, is located off to the north, sitting near the northwestern wall (to the left of the entrance). Cages line the edge of the room, and are suspended from the ceiling by chains. You must defeat the boss to move on.
