There are two cursed areas in Hamtunsicre. To lift the curse, you’ll need to find and destroy the symbol at the heart of each area. This can be done by shooting it, slashing it, or setting fire to it with your torch.
Cursed Area 1 - Northern Hamtunscire
This one is located in the north of Hamtunscire, northwest of Readingum Abbey. As you approach the area everything will become darker, and Eivor will move more slowly. Once you’re at the edge of the area, you can climb on top of one of the rocks and shoot the lynx which have made a home for themselves here. When all the enemies are dead, look to the moveable stone at the western end of the area. behind this, you’ll find the cursed symbol. Move the stone and destroy the symbol to complete the area.
Cursed Area 2 - Southern Hamtunscire
This cursed area is located on the Isle of Wiht, in the southernmost part of Hamtunscire. As with the first, when you draw near everything will become darker, and Eivor will be slower. There are no hidden enemies here, though. To find the symbol, look for the tree with two branches forming a Y shape, then climb up it onto the rope which is holding the red canopy in place. Follow the rope to the platform above, where you’ll find the cursed symbol exposed. Once you destroy it, the area will be complete.
