Glory of the Dead – p. 2

New main objective: Reach the burial chamber

Proceed towards the newly opened northern corridor. You will come across a few skeevers at the beginning, who can be easily defeated. Slow down upon reaching a large chamber, where a group of ghosts will attack you (as seen in the above screenshot). It’s important to note that special weapons or spells are not necessary for this and the following fights. Additionally, ghosts are vulnerable to all powers and shouts (like Unrelenting Force which can push them away). Your ally can also be of help.

After the fight, move towards the western gate. Enter the next large chamber (as seen in the above screenshot) and start battling a new group of ghosts. Be cautious of the tougher ones, as they can cause significant damage. Ensure that all ghosts are eliminated before selecting the narrow southern passage.

Similar to the previous chamber, before proceeding to the next tomb chamber, you will need to defeat a group of ghosts (as seen in the above screenshot). Be careful as you will come across elite ghosts more often here. Remember to eliminate bowmen quickly. After the fight, Farkas will approach and inform you that this is the end of his journey. Aela will be your only companion from now on (excluding your team member).

Prior to moving ahead, examine the nearby chest. Choose the southern passage (as seen in the above screenshot) and use weapons or spells to break the spiderwebs. Frostbite spiders will be waiting for you in the next room, so be careful of the largest one. After the fight, head east and continue destroying spiderwebs on your way.

Be prepared to battle more frostbite spiders with a giant frostbite spider leading them (as seen in the above screenshot). After winning the fight, search the chest and move towards the southern passage, pulling a chain to unlock it. You will encounter more ghosts in the next chamber, so be cautious as you have fewer allies now.

After securing the tomb, select the eastern corridor (as seen in the above screenshot) and prepare to battle more ghosts. There will be at least one tougher ghost amongst them, so keep an eye on your character’s health bar. Ensure that all ghosts are eliminated and then select the eastern corridor, using the stairs leading to a small door.

Enter the new chamber and head to the other end where you will find an interactive handle (as seen in the above screenshot). Use it to unlock access to the northern chamber. Save the game and carefully enter, battling the last and toughest group of ghosts. Be cautious of ghost warriors, as they can cause significant damage in close combat.

After defeating the ghosts, explore the area. Among other things, you will find the Two-Handed skill book The Legendary City of Sancre Tor. Now head north and after a while, you will reach the tomb’s final chamber (as seen in the above screenshot).
