How to Clear the Trade Post at Ardmel
To complete this quest, you’ll first need to clear the Trade Post at Ardmel, located north of Dublin in the region of Ulster. Once you’re inside the post you’ll be confronted by a number of regular units which you should find easy to deal with, but there’s also three Man at Arms mobs. You won’t be able to attack these elite mobs with your bow, since they will parry almost every shot. Instead, you should make use of your high damage abilities, and get in melee range to execute some heavy attacks which will break through their parry stance.
Investigate Ardmel and Obtain the Deed from Gobbins Beach
When all the enemies are dead, use Odin’s Sight to highlight the location of the clue which will direct you to the location of the deed that you need to build the trade post. You’ll find the note on the southeastern side of the trade post, next to a red tent. Read it to update the quest log.
Where to find the key at Gobbins Beach
Once you’ve read the note, the quest objective will update with the location of the deed. Check the world map to see where you need to go. In this case, you’ll find the deed at Gobbins Beach, which is located southeast of Ardmel. When you reach the beach you’ll notice that the deed is locked behind a cage. To open the cage you’ll need to get the key from the shipwreck nearby. Use Odin’s Sight to highlight the location of the key, then dive into the sea to retrieve it. Once you have the key you can open the cage to loot the skeleton for the deed.
After you’ve looted the deed, all that remains is for you to return to Ardmel and interact with the signboard to build the trade post.
