Finding the Keep

The objective of this quest is to take control of Griffon Wing Keep, which is currently occupied by the Venatori cultists. You can find the keep by either discovering the manifesto on a barrel in The Western Approach or by approaching the keep itself.

Entering the Keep

There are two ways to enter the keep. The first is through the main gate on the north-eastern side of the keep (M19,4a). This entrance is guarded by the cultists and you will need to defeat the mages, archers, and the Venatori Gladiator before destroying the main gate.

The second way is to go through the southern wall and find the cave (M19,4b). The cave entrance is protected by a magic barrier which can be destroyed with electric attacks. Once inside the cave, you can find a well which will take you to the first courtyard.

Eliminating the Venatori

No matter which entrance you choose, you will need to fight your way through the keep. Take your time and eliminate the enemies one by one, being careful of the mages and archers. If enemies are on the wall, attack them from a distance or use ladders or stairs to reach them.

Defeating Macrinus and Hoisting the Flag

Macrinus is the leader of the Venatori cultists and a powerful wizard who is resistant to fire attacks. Send your warriors and rogues to engage him and order your mages to avoid using fire spells. After defeating him, search his corpse for the Cowl of the Overseer and the Amulet of Power. Finally, locate the interactive mast (M19,4c) and raise the Inquisition flag.

Rewards for completing the quest:

  • Unlocking new Inquisition keep: Griffon Wing Keep
  • Experience (lots of)
  • 1600 Influence Points
  • 5 Power Points
  • Cowl of the Overseer
