Detailed WalkthroughEdit

You can begin this quest in one of three ways: by speaking with Lord Remard DeFulley at Castle Navire wayshrine, by speaking directly to Isobel at the Castle Navire tournament grounds, or by equipping Isobel into an Allies quickslot and attempting to summon her. Either way, you'll end up heading to her family's castle.

You have to complete all three trials, which can be done in any order.

The Gilded Lute (Order of the Albatross)

  1. Head for the catacombs beneath the castle's chapel, next to the wayshrine.
  2. Isobel says you need a key, which could be at the knight-commander's office inside Castle Navire.
  3. Trade a favor to Nilsmon Booklover for the key.
  4. Go back to the chapel and head downstairs to unlock the door.
  5. Soon into the catacombs, you come across Aspirant Mortens. He offers to give you another key if you find his sword.
  6. The sword is south, and a spider miniboss will attack once you pick it up.
  7. After getting your next key, go east to the Deep Crypts.
  8. Kill the Mad Baron and retrieve the Gilded Lute of Sir Brenvale behind him.
  9. Take the shortcut outside and talk to Isobel to begin the next trial.

Hilt of Redheart (Order of the Iron Knot)

  1. Head to Castle Navire's library.
  2. Examine the open books and talk to Isobel, who marks the location of the next clue on your map.
  3. The Dufort Ruin is east, in the area below the Steadfast Hammer and Saw set station.
  4. Talk to Aspirant Langley LeTarte and Isobel Veloise at the ruins.
  5. Go to the opposite side to find the alternate path.
  6. Redheart's Hilt is near a large carved stone.
  7. Leave the area and talk to Isobel to begin the next trial.

Oldwood Oak Staff (Oaken Order)

  1. Head to the Coral Road Wayshrine and talk to Isobel.
  2. The Wizard's Grotto is directly south of the wayshrine, after collecting the nearby Skyshard.
  3. Examine the three pillars, then fetch three items: a heron's feather, cat's paw flowers, and a spriggan's veil. Locations are marked on the map.
  4. Place the items on the pillars and enter Erlibru's cottage. He says the staff is behind the cottage outside.
  5. Talk to Isobel to begin the next phase.

Tourney Pavilion

  1. Head to the Tourney Pavilion, west of Castle Navire, and talk to Isobel.
  2. Participate in the ceremony.
  3. Talk to Knight-Commander Jourvel in her private chambers, inside Castle Navire.
  4. Isobel will join you as a companion once the quest is complete.



  • If you stray too far away from Isobel after retrieving the sword hilt at the Dufort Ruin she may vanish, making it impossible to talk to her and advance the quest ?
    • Quitting the game and logging back in may respawn her and allow the quest to continue.
  • Cannot talk to Isobel after retrieving the Guilded Lute outside the crypt, preventing you from advancing the quest ?
    • Ensure you do not have another companion active as this prevents you from interacting with Isobel.
  • Cannot talk to Knight-Commander Jourvel at end of quest ?
    • This can happen if you wander around her chambers, such as being busy looting her chambers, while the characters are talking and you don't respond to the verbal prompt to talk to her right away. Backing away to the chamber door through which you entered should restart their conversation and eventually end back with the prompt to talk to her.

Quest StagesEdit

I found the items Isobel asked for. Hopefully they will allow us to bypass the barrier in the Oaken Order trial.

Isobel's idea worked, and the barrier is down. We need to search the wizard's home for the Oldwood Staff, or for the wizard himself.
Objective: Enter the Elder's Cottage
To advance in the Oaken Order trial I should ask the elder Elibru for the Oldwood Staff.
Objective: Talk to Erlibru
Success! Elibru invited us to pick up the staff, which completes the Oaken Order trial. I should grab it.
Objective: Take the Staff
We successfully completed the trial of the Oaken Order. I should talk to Isobel.
Objective: Talk to Isobel
For the Order of the Albatross, we need to retrieve a legendary lute, said to be lost in the catacombs beneath the Castle. I should meet Isobel in the chapel, the door to the catacombs is there.
Objective: Meet Isobel at the Castle Chapel
To complete the Albatross trial, we need to enter the castle catacombs. I should talk to Isobel about what to do.

It seems that one of Isobel's competitors in the Albatross trial, Aspirant Mortens, has locked himself in a small crypt. I should talk to him.

Aspirant Mortens is hiding in a small crypt with the door locked behind him. We need to search for his sword in exchange for the key to get into the oldest parts of the catacombs.
Objective: Find Aspirant Mortens' Sword
We retrieved Aspirant Mortens' sword, I should speak to him and retrieve the key to the old crypts.
Objective: Talk to Aspirant Mortens
The aspirant's fear of spiders has him too rattled to continue in the Albatross trial, so we left him his sword while we continued our search for the Gilded Lute.
Objective: Find the Gilded Lute
We found the Gilded Lute of Sir Brenvale for the Order of the Albatross! The bard knight met a tragic end, and now we need to make our escape from this gloomy place.

The blade belonged to the first Duke Dufort. If we're going to complete the Iron Knot trial we need to research his past.

Objective: Talk to Isobel Veloise
To complete the Iron Knot trial we have to get around Aspirant Langley. Isobel remembers another path she used to use to climb the rise when she was young.
Objective: Find Isobel's Path
We found the path on our quest to complete the Iron Knot trial. The tome we read mentioned an old ruin where we should find the hilt to Redheart. Just have to find the ruin, now.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
