    • In the western room along the north corridor, five of the sarcophagi will automatically break and release wights if you don't destroy them at range. However, you will still be able to get both the optional and Ransack even if this happens.

  • The ogres are being held in the southeast, northeast, and southwest corners (2 each), with one at the first junction.
