Defeat the Warden Corpses that attack and check the book for Codex 238: Avernus’s Notes . The Alchemical Concoction will give your character the Power of Blood abilities, two unique abilities depending on your class. The Ability Notes will lead to another mini-cutscene. Head to Avernus’s Room and speak with him. Agree to ally with him until the Demons are taken care of. Loot the chest, wooden crate, and corpse for Codex 102: The History of Soldier’s Peak - Chapter 4.
Took advantage of Avernus's research (Wardens Keep DLC).
Return to the Great Hall on the second floor of the Keep. Protect Avernus from the Demons that are summoned as he closes the Veil. The final creature is a Desire Demon that is easily tanked and killed; it usually drops decent coin. Speak with Avernus afterwards and choose to kill him. He drops the Robes of Avernus which improve blood magic.
Head down the steps and check Asturian’s Portrait to gain access to his stash. Inside is Asturian’s Might and the Shadow Belt . This completes the quest “Ancient History”. If you leave and come back, Levi will have his shop set up and you will gain access to a storage chest. If you have acquired the Meteor Metal Ore from the random encounter then give it to Mikhael and have him forge Starfang . You can choose either a one-hand or two-hand sword, the choice is dependent on your play style.
