After speaking to the High Elf Soldier at Sloeford again, he will tell you that some of his men went missing a while back.
The way to the cave is rather simple, if you follow the yellow outline on the map below. Just follow the pathway past the
High Elf Soldier to a bridge. Cross that bridge, the cave is on the other side.
There are some Boars and Wolves between you and the cave.
Once inside the cave, you will have to locate 3 Soldier's medals , and to make it a bit more eerie, they ask you to find a bloodstained map. Fortune has it, they are located right next to each other, the pictures below offer an overview of the cave along with it's route, and the actual items displayed on the cave floor.
There are Rats, Plague Rats and Brigands inside the cave.
After finding all 4 items, return to the High Elf Soldier to complete the quest.
You will need to talk to him again to start the third quest in the chain.
A guard in the village told me that a patrol has been missing for several days. He has asked me to go and find out what has befallen them.
I found the patrol. There's no doubt about it, the bodies were still carrying their insignia. They are all dead! Evidently bandits killed them. Poor devils. I will relate the sad news to the villagers and take the map that I found on one of the bodies to them.
I have passed on the message. The villagers have another task waiting for me.
- In this cave it is recommended to use a spell/attack with an 'area of effect'. The opponents have very little health, but they are numerous. Hitting multiple opponents at a time in a cave like this is bound to save you a lot of time.
