Loot the corpses on the ground and open the door to provoke the Werewolves. Let them funnel through a few at a time and then proceed right to find a pile of filth and to the left for some rubble. Watch out for the trap as you go further back to a locked chest. To the left is a pile of sacks and to the right is a pile of junk. Head south down the stairs and open the door to find the Gatekeeper. Agree to speak with the Lady of the Forest. During the dialogue you have a few options, but agree to get Zathrian.

To the west is a sarcophagus and some rubble and in the previous room is another sarcophagus. Go north. Open two more sarcophagi and go east. The northern chamber has a chest and the southern has a chest, pile of rags and the lastof the Ancient Texts for Scroll of Banastor(5) . Head to the western area. The southern chamber has a chest and pile of sacks while the northern has a pile of filth, a chest and a Glass Phylactery which summons another Revenant . Loot it for an update, it was the Fifth Corpse Walker and your third in total if you’ve been following the guide.

You can choose who to attack if you tell Zathrian you will force him to end the curse.

Return to the area with the Lady of the Forest and go left. At the top of the stairs is a Treasure Pile. Return to the top level and go up the steps to find Zathrian already here. It will take some time but keep plugging away till you get him to speak with the Lady. Work your way into telling Zathrian you will not pick sides, in which case he turns on you. Beat some sense into him to make him break the curse. Ask the humans for a reward to receive Swiftrunner’s Shield then return to the Dalish camp.
