Tips and Misc

Walkthrough

  • Speak to the Lordsmarch Guard in the foyer then head inwards to further investigate the library
    • In the far north west of the library, defeat the Headless Zombie Brute to find a way to destroy the urn (library): Once the Brute is dead, the barrier around the urn drops and the urn can be smashed by talking to it
  • Head back to the foyer and Speak to the Lordsmarch Guard in the foyer again, then enter the Lower Offices and head upstairs
  • Head to the south west office, then follow the passages to the west and north
    • Defeat the Headless Zombie Brute to drop the barrier around the urn, then destroy the urn in the western offices by talking to it
    • Loot the chest
  • Head to the south east office, then follow the passages to the east and north
    • Defeat the Headless Zombie Brute to drop the barrier around the urn, then destroy the urn in the eastern offices by talking to it
  • Head back to the foyer and Speak to the Lordsmarch Guard in the foyer once more, then head out into the courtyard
    • Bug: Selecting the 2nd dialog option (ending with "Excellent. On my way.") ends the dialogue but doesn't open the door. Speak to the guard again and choose the other option.
  • Enter the Registry of Magical Vehicles up the the steps to the south of the courtyard
    • Defeat the Headless Zombie Brute to drop the barrier around the urn, then destroy the urn in the Registry by talking to it
