Lincolnscire Abilities Locations

Focus of the Nornir - Bolingbroc Castle

The book of knowledge which provides this ability can be acquired during the In the Absence of an Ealdorman main story quest. However, you can also enter the castle at any time if you just wanted to get the Focus of the Nornir ability first. The castle is located just east of Lincoln. It has a southern section and a northern section, and the book of knowledge is located in the northern section. To reach it, you’ll need to lower the drawbridge from the lower section and make your way up the wooden steps to the keep. You’ll find the book of knowledge on the western side of its interior.

Piercing Shot - Lincoln

This one can be found in a guarded building in the northeast of Lincoln. To enter the building, you’ll need to smash through the wooden planks on the roof. You can then climb down to the bottom where you’ll find a locked door, behind which the book of knowledge is located. To open the door you’ll need a key, which can be found beyond a destructible barricade in the south of the building. You can destroy the barricade using Incendiary Powder Trap ranged ability, or if you don’t have this yet you can use one of the fire pots which are hidden behind some nearby wooden planks. Either way, once you have the key you’ll be able to open the door and take the book.
