Grab the Rashvine and head north to the Dragon Bone to start the quest “ The Lost Dragon Bones “. Use the nearby Bone Slot and check the Veil Tear; you can’t pass it yet so head back down and go east.

Open the Ancient Letter and grab the Ancient Note for the quest “ The Burden of Guilt “ and Codex 328: Karsten Wilde’s Last Testament . Kill the enemies and open the chest in the corner. Head east and check the town records for Codex 235: Records of the Blackmarsh and grab the Toy Horse . Run around the wall and grab the Madcap then head north.

Grab the Rashvine and approach the Veil Tear to get the quest “ Tears in the Veil “ and Codex 037: Tears in the Veil . Head up to the camp area and examine the hidden clue, the rocks for Kristoff’s Locket , and the cot for a quest update. Defeat the Blighted Shadow Wolves that attack and loot the corpse for Mark of the Divine . Head east and fend off the attackers, loot the chest and turn the corner to find a Dragon Bone and Elfroot . Head back to the campsite and go northwest behind it to a Ripped Page for Codex 251: The Baronness’s Secret.

The Blackmarsh Undying

Defeat the Darkspawn then exit at the north towards a lyrium vein. As you turn the corner a few Lesser Shades will strike followed by a Greater Shade. Go up the ramp and defeat the Desire Demons then use the Veil Tear Apparatus . Turn around and grab the Essence of Constitution for a permanent +1 boost to Constitution. Follow the path west into the corner where more Desire Demons guard the Veil Tear Apparatus. Kill them and use it. Move down between some Runestones and a lyrium vein then follow the steps to complete the puzzle.

6 LV 1

5 2

4 3

The numbers correspond to the Runestones, LV is the Lyrium vein that is between the two so you understand how everything is numbered.

Use the Runestones in the following order: 5, 2, 3, 6, 1, and 4. This will summon Lesser Rage Demons and then Greater Rage Demons. Touch the Runic Pedestal to solve the puzzle. Move up the ramp on the west to an Essence of Willpower . Return to the Runestones and go south, turning left at the fork towards the Essence of Strength then run north to the Essence of Dexterity . Defeat the Greater Rage Demons and turn right towards the Veil Tear Apparatus. Kill the demons and use it along with the nearby Essence of Magic.

The Runestones need to be touched in a certain order. Demons will be summoned once you complete it.

Head south past the Villager and fight off the Lesser Shades. Further south is an Essence of Cunning then turn the corner to find a Lonely Soul who gives the quest “ A Maiden in Distress “. Defeat the skeletons and enter the Shadowy Crypt.
