This quest begins immediately after Taken. Now that Estrid is safely in the hands of Rollo, soon to be on their way to Francia, it’s time to return to Birstan to secure your alliance with Essexe.
Hunt Boar with Birstan
You’ll find Birstan at Hunter’s Meet, northeast of Colcestre. Speak with him there to begin the hunt. You’ll have to follow him through the woods to the north to reach marshlands, where boar can be found. Once there, shoot enough boar to fill the progress bar. There are plenty in the marsh, each marked by a teal objective icon. You’ll need to kill about 5 boar to fill the bar. When enough boars are killed, speak with Birstan and then follow him back to the Ealdorman’s House in Colcestre.
Speak with Rollo at Wulfaswic
After the scene in the Ealdorman’s House, you’ll need to speak with Rollo back in Wulfaswic, south of Colcestre. When you reach Rollo a brief cutscene will play, after which you’ll need to defeat the attacking Saxons. There will be numerous waves of attackers, each consisting of regular soldiers, Pikemen, Yeomen, Skirmishers, Bannerets, Gedrihts, and Kinsman. Most of these waves will come from the north, and you’ll need to revive some of Rollo’s warriors as they inevitably fall to the superior Saxon numbers.
Tip: Facing north, you’ll notice a supply cart with fire pots around it. When a new wave of Saxons approaches, shoot one of these pots as they pass by them to create an explosion, heavily damaging their forces in the process.
When all the Saxons are dead, speak with Estrid by the docks to complete the quest.
