Ashlanders escaping the collapsing Illiath Temple Mines
The renegade Ashlanders have broken through a storage tunnel beneath Iliath Temple, taking the monks and their defenders by surprise. If the attack can't be repelled, the monastery is sure to fall.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Tirinaat and Ordinator Nethis
  2. Grab a pickaxe and weaken the support beams
  3. Defeat the Ashkhan and escape the tunnel

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

After you awaken the Ordinators, Brother Samel comes rushing in. The Ashlanders have dug under the walls! Ordinator Nethis leads the defense outside, but before you meet with him, Tirinaat would like a word. She gives you an artifact that will calm her kinsmen upon its use. She urges you to end this conflict without bloodshed.
You need to talk to Ordinator Nethis now. You can find him behind the Temple Shrine. Nethis tells you that the support beams holding up the Ashlanders' tunnel are weak, and advises you to grab a pickaxe and cave in the tunnel. Find a pickaxe in one of the buildings behind the temple, to the east, and start weakening the supports.
Use Hedranna's Artifact to calm the Ashlanders so that you may pass by unharmed as you weaken the supports. When you've weakened the fourth support, head into the final chamber and fibd the Ashkhan. Set the pile of timbers on fire to get his attention. He'll come in from the exit. Once he's dead, weaken the last support and leave the mines. Hedranna will be just outside. Speak to her for your reward.
