After the battle with the giant monster, if we travel back to Cassardis, Adaro will ask us to go and search for Quina who disappeared.
To do so, we must travel to Witchwood.
Note: Witchwood is a dark place, located west from the Encampment. Before we start this quest we stop in the Encampment and check the notice board, where additional quests become available, in the same area: Hounded by Fate and Extermination 2 (renamed to avoid any confusion between the quest from the Encampment and the Extermination quest in Cassardis). Additionally, we can also complete the Basic Training quest in Witchwood; however we dont start the journey without the necessary preparations.
“News of Quinas sudden disappearance has left you shaken. Seek out the village chief to learn more of her whereabouts.”
“Word has it Quina trekked into the Witchwood. Begin your search there.”
We begin this quest in the morning, after we equip our hero and his pawns. We travel to the Encampment then move north, looking for a dirt path in the woods, to the left.
As we continue to push forward, we kill the wolves we encounter (Hounded by Fate side-quest).
In front of us, is a small canyon and on top of the mountain we notice a large boulder. When the rock starts moving, we place our hero near one of the mountains walls and wait until it passes.
We continue to ascend and kill the bandits that pushed the rock. We continue to descend the hill and kill all opponents, most of them bandits and wolves.
Combat Tip: While fighting bandits, we make sure we block all attacks, including ranged ones. They can be devastating and will end our journey earlier. We make sure that all pawns stay alive, or our hero will die.
If the fight is too difficult we return to the Encampment and purchase better weapons and armor for our hero and our pawns. If needed, we enhance our weapons/armor.
When we get to the bottom of the hill, we follow the left path and enter Witchwood, through the mist. Eventually we will see Quina. After we talk to her, we will be asked to help her find a witch.
At this point we follow the path to the east and try to explore as much as we can. We also make sure to kill eight spiders and complete the Basic Training quest. During our exploration, we will also encounter goblins, snakes, wolves and ghosts.
Combat Tip: When fighting a ghost, we have to keep an eye on our pawns. If one of the ghosts captures a pawn, we hurry up and release him. If the ghosts target is our hero we yell for help and one of our party members will free us. The specters are weak but annoying enemies.
We continue to push east until we see the witchs cottage. Inside we find a young girl named Selene. After we talk to her, we have to travel all the way back to Cassardis. When we exit the cottage, we see a lantern in the dark to the north.
If we follow the lantern and the one who carries it (Quina), we will find a shortcut that takes us just near Cassardis. In the village we find Adaro and talk to him, to complete the Lost and Found.
