Open the chest to obtain a Lesser Health Poultice and Small Grease Trap , open your inventory and re-equip all your gear before engaging the Howe Soldier and Howe Archer. Draw them into your room and take them out, then make your way out battling two more Howe Soldiers.
Your mother comes out and joins the party, but fears for your father; the quest “ Howe Treachery “ is updated. You should have leveled up as well as your Mabari War Hound. Place your points accordingly and loot the fallen enemies. Proceed south and open the trunk to find a Dagger (Iron), Greatsword (Iron), Longbow (Elm), and Small Shield (Elm). Equip Eleanor and enter Fergus’ room to find his family murdered. Open the north door to fight 2 Howe Soldiers and 2 Howe Archers; the side rooms each contain a chest. Continue north for minor dialogue then enter the room to the left to find a Knight Corpse; looting him yields a Dagger (Iron). Continue east to find a frantic man. You can persuade him to fight with you as you engage the enemy on both sides. Utilize Eleanor’s Pinning Shot to breeze through the fight.
Continue north and through the door on the left battling your way to a chest. Head out and continue south looting the rubble for a Lesser Health Poultice and Elfroot .
