Tips and Misc
- This should be familiar by now... same as before, except with glass spiders instead of hobgoblin avengers. Glass spiders can be found in the hallway after the central chamber, in the spider caves around the loop, and in the passage to the inner stronghold. Be careful fighting around the no-longer-locked door to the inner stronghold, if you're still going after bonuses; if you pass the threshold going after a glass spider, you'll complete the quest.
- Once again, if you leave before completing the second (inner fortress) portion of this set, you'll have to go through this quest again. Like The Stronghold Key, this makes this quest a popular place to farm collectables, especially the valuable Lightning-Split Soarwood.
- You don't receive favor until after completing the next quest.
