There is a chest on the other side of the statue. Open the door near the stairs to enter the Great Hall. Check the ancient texts to find another Scroll of Banastor(2) then the charred corpse which will spawn a few enemies. An Arcane Horror will enter from the far side so be sure to take it out with your ranged character because it can inflict some damage. Loot the charred corpse at the far end as well as the pile of books and the Apprentice Note which should update the quest “Watchguard of the Reaching”. Enter the next room where a charred corpse and chest can be looted.

Open the door to the next room but don’t enter it without disarming the Leghold Trap immediately in front of it. Let the Abominations come to you as you can easily pick them off this way. Looting them should update a codex. March further into the room to spawn demons that are easily dispatched of. There is a soldier’s corpse to be looted in the middle of the room. Check the first room on the right that has a trap immediately inside the door. Kill the Possessed Templar and loot the closet, torn page which yields Codex 324: Five Pages, Four Mages , and a pile of books.

There is a specific order to touch the statues so be sure to check what you need to do. The last torn page starts the quest “Five Pages, Four Mages”.

The next room on the right has a cabinet and another torn page. The next room has many Charmed Templars being controlled by a Desire Demon. There are two more torn pages and an armoire in this room. The final room yields the last torn page and a chest. You should acquire the quest “ Five Pages, Four Mages “ which you will complete later. Approach the door leading to the middle area, the game will auto-save. Enter and defeat the Abomination-led enemies. Be sure to loot everything as the Abomination has a White Runestone .

Leave this room for now and enter the large room with the statues along the back wall. Examine them in this order: left-most holding a bowl, right-most with a sword pointed upward, middle with a sword pointed downward, and then the statue in the middle room with the shield. This will update a quest but we’ll get to it later. Head to the fourth floor.
