Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Getting started[edit | edit source]
Bring all required items for the quest with you.
- Talk to King Arthur.
- Talk to Sir Gawain, who can be found in the courtyard to the south or nearby in the castle, about both options.
- Talk to Sir Lancelot upstairs.
- Go to Catherby.
- If you didn't bring a bucket of wax, grab insect repellent in the house north of the bank in Catherby.
- Use the insect repellent on one of the beehives to the west with an empty bucket (a bucket can be found near the beehives) in your inventory to get a bucket of wax.
- Talk to the general store merchant Arhein.
- Hide in the crate north of the candle maker's shop. Wait. Climb out of the crate.
Inside the keep[edit | edit source]
- Climb to the top floor. The Renegade Knights will attack you on your way up.
- Attack Sir Mordred. He cannot be safespotted, but he can be flinched using the stairs (position him on the square left of the stairs whilst flinching from the square north east of him).
- When Sir Mordred reaches 0 hitpoints, Morgan Le Faye will appear and ask that you spare him. Spare his life to discover how to save Merlin.
**DO NOT INTERUPT THE DIALOUGE. YOU WILL HAVE FIGHT MORDRED AGAIN.**
- If you don't already have bat bones, exit the keep through the west doors and kill a bat before leaving.

Finishing up[edit | edit source]
