Side Mission Introduction

"Lady Guinevere received an urgent message from Sir Percivale, the Grail Knight who has been wandering in the wilderness for a while. He claims to have found a way to use the power of the Grail again and says that he needs Guinevere's help. Percivale insisted that he didn't trust me enough to let me join them, which I find laughable, but I'm letting Guinevere go on her own. This could be more important than my pride."

Side Mission Completed Description

"Sir Percivale was right and we found Dagda's Cauldron. We have fought for another aspect of the Grail, the sacred relic of the believers of the Old Faith, but it turns out that the growing Wastelast has corrupt the cauldron. Still, the quest was not a failure. At least now we know that the Grail is in Avalon in different forms and shapes. We must not give up"

Find the Cauldron of Dagda

This mission begins with a dialogue with Sir Percivale. As you move forward you may trigger the first combat battle. If possible, use your attacks with an AoE at this point while the enemy Pict are still positioned close to one another. Skills such s Fire Blast are ideal for this positioning. Use any ranged attacks to clear those firsther back and wait for the closer enemies to approach you so you can strike with the closest hero. Clear this set and loot the area to proceed. You will encounter more Pict groups like this along the way and you could clear them the same way.

Once you reach the crossroads towards the center of the map, you will have to face two waves of attackers. Clear this combat battle and from here it will be easy to reach the Cauldron. If you wish you locate the cauldron directly without exploration, or while minimizing combat encounters, head directly west from here. The Location of the Cauldron will be marked on the map below.

Defeat the Grail Guards

Begin with your ranged attacks while they are at a distance. The guards will take their next turns to approach you which will put you in a better position for regular strikes and melee attacks. Omaex will be the last to approach with the highest vitality starting with 37. Clear him last and when you're done with the battle, the mysterious figure (Druid) will approach and begin a dialogue sequnce. Exhaust the dialogue and you will be able to finish the mission to exit the area. Check the map for any remaining chests in the area and exit when you are finished.

      the optional shrine gave me a blue ranged rune. I recommend teleporting Lady G. to queen slug, freeze and chill her so that your other knights can close in on her and kill her first, her stun spit is really annoying
