The Western Approach



Constellation: Toth

Location : Griffon Wing Fortress

Constellation: Fenrir

Location: Prison Ruins, on the battlement

Constellation: Satinalis

Location: Echo Back Fort, take the cave at the bottom up to it.

After you have completed all of the astrariums, a cave will open up near Craggy Ridge Camp. Head inside and light the veil fire you find. Take it with you. At the bottom of the cave you will find a chest with the unique Masterwork Enchanter Mail , an elven rune to activate, and at the back wall lit by the veil fire, Master Fire Rune Schematic . Good stuff. Once you have the armor this quest will be complete.
