You get to watch the scene with the Archdemon again and your Ogre becomes caged if you still had one. “ Free the Ogre “ by heading north and aiding the Darkspawn that are fighting. The best way to get through is by helping out the others that are already fighting and using the Emissary to fireball groups, the Shriek is good for getting the ballista guards early. The path is blocked here so start to go north and check the chest for a Reinforced Magus Cowl . Watch out for the Dwarven Legionnaires and Kardol. Continue up the steps after taking the Shield of the Legion and Totem from the corpse.

Defeat the Steel Golems and continue south to find more. Check the chest around the corner for a Malign Staff and hit the levers to release the Ogre. “ Smash the Gates “ and head up the steps to fight more golems and legionnaires. Pick a side and get to the top. Fend off the hordes of enemies and defeat Sten to get through, loot him for Juggernaut Plate Armor, Swordsman’s Girdle , and Sten’s Sword and continue to Fort Drakon.

Free the Ogre by pulling the lever here. Afterwards, and before smashing the gates, smash the barricade in this corner for more enemies.
