Finding the tomb[edit | edit source]

  • Make your way to the north-west part of the swamp, "climb fallen pillar", and go up the stairs.
    • Optional: Go west, "climb low wall", use your rope "rock", jutting out over the edge - this will give you quicker access in the future.
  • Walk north past the Archaeologist's fire, through the opening between the cliffs.
  • Search the western wall for a sealed door to enter the dungeon.
