What to Expect

  • Respawning monsters

Known Traps

  • Blade trap after the crest-locked door; no control panel, but there is a lever beyond them to shut them off.

Tips and Misc

  • In order to drive off Strahd, kite him into the pool of water and reduce him to 0 health. When he is in the pool a Holy Water debuff will be applied to him.

  • This quest contains a randomly located mysterious altar. Madam Eva might give you hints about its location.
    • The buff from this altar will disappear if you use Dimension Door, but will remain when you recall from the quest as long as you remain in the wilderness.
  • Madam Eva will draw three cards. The first card tells you a hint about where the Sunsword is located. Possible locations include the shepherd's field outside of the Abbey near the entrance, inside an ancient tomb immediately to the right of the quest entrance, inside a wine casket just down the steps from the Abbot, and inside a chest in the Mongrelfolk barracks. The second card tells you where the Small Shrine is that gives you a temporary buff. Like the Sunsword, the Shrine can be either outside the Abbey, inside the Abbey, in the surgery ward, or in the basement dungeon area. The third card gives a clue to either a random optional objective with a loot chest, or to Ezmerelda who will help you fight Strahd in the final encounter. Some of the random named encounters include an Undead Lich in the outdoor graveyard near the entrance, and a group of Spectre healers in the surgery ward.
  • The Tarnished Key is also in a random location outside the Abbey, but none of the Madame Eva cards refers to the Tarnished Key. The Key is either in the graveyard area, in the alley between the Abbey doors and the shepherd's pasture, in the pasture itself, or right near Otto and the door. The Tarnished Key is always located in plain sight, but surrounded by a few enemies.
  • Possible cards from Madam Eva
    • Miser: Seek the light where the Abbot hoards his most precious treasures - the sun of a hundred afternoons, sealed in bottles and aged into liquid hope.
      • Sunsword hidden in Ancient Wine Casket in wine cellar of chapel headed downstairs from abbot
    • Bishop: Seek the light in the Bishop's bed. He sleeps among the monks of old.
      • Sunsword hidden in an Ancient Tomb right next to the entrance of the quest
    • Donjon: A blessing lies hidden here, down in the halls deep beneath.
    • Druid: A blessing lies hidden here, in the cool shadows of the trees.
      • Tarnished Key is found in the Abbey Courtyard
    • Ghost: I see souls who searched for peace long ago. They found torment instead.
    • Broken One: Seek the light among the broken ones. They wanted to be more than than they were. They found madness instead.
      • Sunsword location... inside abbey, east wing, downstairs, in a mongrelfolk room
    • Transmuter: A blessing lies hidden here, where flesh is forged into new forms.
      • Defense buff shrine - inside abbey, west wing, upstairs in the room with Vasika.
    • Mists: I see the enemy of your enemy. She waits for you in a room above the mists.
      • Ezmerelda's location... inside abbey, east wing, upstairs, in room past the locked door that opens with the lever.
    • Wizard: I see a wizard who has slept through the ages. His bed is cold, and his blanket is made of marble.
      • To the right from Madam Eva, into the graveyard where the Ancient Tomb spawns, then left to the Cold Crypt. Lich fight (immunity to low level spells).
    • Shepherd: Seek the light in the field where the shepherd tended his flock.
      • Dig up the Shepherd's Crook in the field.
  • The Explore the Abbey objective is completed after you move through the hallway in the East Wing with the Mongrelmen in the siderooms.
    • This also triggers the objection objective to "Tell the Abbot what you think of the Abbey". You can now go back to the Abbot and engage him in conversation about his actions. Chose the dialogue option, "From what I've seen so far, I think that you're insane" to trigger a fight. The Abbot will shift into his corrupted Deva form. Killing him will spawn a chest that can contain named items for the quest.
  • A hatch is located in the southern room at the end of the hallway, which leads into the root cellar.
  • Use the lever on the right side of the room to open the gate. A group of Grim Shadows will spawn after you pull the lever. At the end of the corridor is a room with 3 doors, and more groups of Grim Shadows. One of the doors is locked and requires two crests to open. One crest may be found in this room. The eastern door leads to a room that may contain a crest, as well as Crawling Claws and Note #5 for the "Read the Abbot's journals" optional. The northern door is locked, but can be picked (49 Open Lock roll was successful on Heroic elite) and has a locked chest (42 Open Lock roll was successful on Heroic Elite) with random loot.
  • Past the door locked by the crests is a corridor, at the end of which is another room with a Rest and a Resurrection shrine, along with a "Dismal Shrine". The Dismal Shrine continuously spawns a Walking Corpse, which will slowly wander up the slope, every 15 seconds as long as somebody is in that section of the Abbey, until it is destroyed. The spawns seem to cap at four at a time, however. The door out of this room opens into a tunnel, at the end of which is another door leading to the Shrine of the White Sun and the end sequence for the quest.
  • The Shrine of the White Sun is in a large open area enclosed by a fence on all sides, and overlooks a pool of water. There is one door in the fenced walls, Ireena is just outside. Open the door to let her in, then speak to her to trigger a fairly long cutscene. Afterwards Strahd will appear; he is much easier to damage if you pull him into the water. When you lower his health enough he will leave and the quest will complete.
