Zone 1: Fort Wooden HandEdit

Fort Wooden Hand

In the very first chamber, near door Out, up to three Marauders will be guarding two minor loot chests and a bedroll at b. At the intersection, the western path is difficult to access unless you have a high Acrobatics skill or an item with a Fortify Acrobatics enchantment.

If you don't have either of those things, proceed south. In the next room, door C will lead you to a smaller area in the next zone, Fort Wooden Hand Stockade, which will eventually lead you back to door D in this zone. When you return to this zone from door D, a Marauder Battlemage will welcome you, so be prepared. Locate the northern tunnel and claim the contents of the locked chest, then jump over the wall and land back at the intersection. Proceed south, past door C, to door E.

If you do have one or both of those things, you can attempt to jump through the open archway at the top of the wall, just east of the western pathway. If you succeed, you will land on a pile of crates on the west side of the wall. Loot the locked chest among the crates and proceed west. You will find a Marauder Battlemage in the next room, so be prepared. Door D will lead you to a smaller area in the next zone, Fort Wooden Hand Stockade, which will eventually lead you back to door C in this zone. When you return to this zone from door C, proceed south to door E.

Exiting through door E first is the most obvious choice, as it leads directly to the boss and the boss-leveled chest in the next zone.

Occupants:

  • 2 Marauder Battlemages
  • 2 archer Marauders
  • 3-5 melee Marauders

Zone 2: Fort Wooden Hand StockadeEdit

Fort Wooden Hand Stockade

This zone is actually two small sections, which are not connected to each other. Both are accessed from the first zone.

  • The first part (accessed through door C or D) leads you to a small room with a minor loot chest, and, when exiting through door D, to a previously difficult-to-access set of tunnels in the Fort Wooden Hand zone.
  • The final part (accessed through door E) is a single room containing a Marauder Warlord at A and a boss chest behind the throne at B.

Occupants:

  • 1 boss-level Marauder at location A on map
  • 1 archer Marauder
  • 1-2 melee Marauders

Treasure:

Doors and Gates:

  • There are three doors (at E, C, and D) in/out of this zone, all leading to the zone Fort Wooden Hand
