Side Mission Introduction

"Sir Ector is worried about the fate of a good friend, Abbot Eliales. The deeply religious sorcerer and holy man gathered his devout followers to retake the ruins of an ancient Christian cathedral from the Lost. No one heard about the Abbot ever since. This needs our attention - we must find out what happened."

Side Mission Completed Description

"The good Abbot Eliales fought to the last breathe, but in the end he was taken and corrupted by the undead. May his soul now rest in peace!"

No events took place during the side mission.


Find the Abbot and deal with the undead threat

As soon as you arrive, there will be a shrine in the area and and battle sequence soon after.

  • Destroy the attackers (0/3)

There will be 3 waves of attackers. Your enemies will mostly consist of Lost Commoners, Lost Skirmishers, Lost Squires and the occasional Lost Crossbowman.  Have a look at the field and see where the Crossbow men are stationed and try to kill them off first, or try to get into a position where you can hit the closest enemy in close range. Continue exploring the blank map, but be ready for any upcoming battles  You may eventually encounter some Lost Knights as well. Make sure to check the map for any unlooted chests in the area as well. 

  • Towards the northeast corner of the map are the Desecrated Graves. If you come across the Desecrated Graves and meet a witch, she will offer you a deal:+20% damage during the mission for 200 gold. Accept the offer if you believe it is needed. 

Kill more Lost to destroy the barrier

Continue exploring the blank edges of the map, keeping an eye on the cluster of red enemy indicators to destroy the barrier found at the Thistlewood Cathedral. The screen will show that the barrier is down once you've defeated enough enemies, Sir Ector will also say that you've destroyed one barrier, and there is another one left. Continue exploring the area and defeat more of The Lost in order to destroy the last barrier. Now that both barriers are down, you can make your way inside and continue. Follow the quest marker and head inside.

You will find Abbot Eliales inside the abbot. His consciousness is slowly fading away, losing his true self and even forgetting his own name. After the short dialogue, you will initiate battle and put him to rest. He will not be alone, there will be some enemies surrounding you so take care of them first, especially the ones closest to your heroes. Once you've defeated Abbot Eliases, the side mission is complete, and you can choose to explore the area and collect the other loot you've missed or you can end the mission.
