Side mission location Speak to the mission giver



At the top of the long staircase that runs alongside the southern mountainside, turn right on the stone path to find a crowd of angry citizens outside a house. It’s guarded by a serpent guard. Speak to the Mission Giver to begin the quest.

Note: You must be wearing the Serpent Guard outfit to access this mission.

A man named Sumaq has been murdered in his home and his servant is being held accountable for it. You must investigate to find out the truth.

To solve the case, follow these steps:

  • Go down the steps to the right of the house to speak to the horn player. Make him call the citizens to mourning.

  • When the people have moved away, go inside the house and speak to the guard.

  • Head down the steps again, past the horn player to the left, to dig something up in front of the small fire burning against the wall.

  • Head back outside and move past the house to climb up the wall on the right. Move around the hut on the left to find the beams behind it – jump across them to the craggy wall and climb up.

  • Go right but stop before entering the house. Investigate the ground to the right of the doorway to uncover the murder weapon. Now the female servant, Akna, will automatically speak to you.

  • Return to the guard to tell him the truth of what happened and set Taruca free. This ends the side mission.
