Tips and Misc

Talk to Briar. You need to get to the garden. You have two options:

  • Find two crests in random locations in the mansion.
  • Find a secret door in the central northern room and use that way to reach the garden.

In either case, you need to get the Rusty Scythe before heading to the garden. The scythe is in a room accessible from the main hallway, the only door on the southern wall.

The Locked door, to bedroom, up ladder requires an Iron Key that can be found in a breakable, or a Rogue may attempt to unlock the door

In the garden, you can then chop the bamboo barriers to proceed. There's an optional chest in the north and south, plus the optional Sage Hargrove in the Root Cellar to the north; or head east to the end fight.

Activate the vision, kill Rose and everything else, then talk to the parrot.

Rosemary Hargrove counts as a kill, thus there is no way to complete the quest with zero kills

Optionals

The Vision node in front of the storage may appear at a later stage in the quest; maybe after viewing 5 other visions.
