Free the trapped villagers and fight the werewolves in the wolf den. There should be a Sunsword Hilt in the gold pile at the end of the werewolf cave after the Kiril fight.


  • Join Szoldar Szoldarovich in searching the Howling Hills for the missing villagers and keep looking for the Sunsword.


Ezmerelda d'Avenir
You seek a weapon with a shining blade, yes? My tarokka cards tell me the treasure is in the mouth of a cave. It seems to me that there are a lot of caves in the Howling Hills, so maybe that would be a good place to start.

What's more, some locals have gone missing in that area and Szoldar is planning to mount a search for them. He could use some assistance... but is too proud to admit it. Talk to him inside the tavern, if you want to help him. Perhaps it will lead you to the sword.

Talking to Szoldar in the Tavern[]

Szoldar Szoldarovich
The night is full of teeth.
I hear you're looking for volunteers.
Szoldar Szoldarovich
Are you here to help? Ezmerelda said she would find me some reliable types to venture out, but these lands are dangerous and not everyone is up to the task.
Yes. I'm here to help you search.
Szoldar Szoldarovich
Hmph. Very well, if you're sure. I have volunteers spread out in all directions looking for the missing villagers. I want you to head towards the Howling Hills to see if you can pick up a trail.

Let me know when you are ready to begin.

I'm ready now, Szoldar.
Szoldar Szoldarovich
Very well, then. Let us go. Be wary, though, those hills are teeming with wolves. And worse.
Let's go! (You will be teleported to the mission instance.)

In the Wolf Den[]

Szoldar Szoldarovich
Ah, there you are. I will start the search in the direction of Yester Hill. You cross the river and head up into the Howling Hills to look for tracks. I will meet you back at the tavern when you are done. Be careful.

Examining a Body[]

  • This Barovian has been brutally attacked. The blood trail leads toward the river.
  • This Barovian has also been torn apart. Bloody footprints lead up the left fork.

Reaching Villager Camp[]

Help us! These beasts have us trapped!
Thanks goodness, we are very grateful for your assistance, friend. Those creatures had us trapped! We sent some of our fellows to help. Did they summon you?
I'm afraid they didn't make it. Who are you?
I was afraid of that. My name is Emil. We are simple Barovians who have been held by these beasts in a cave not far from here.

They have our friends still, and my wife! We managed to escape, but we cannot overcome them ourselves.

Will you help us and rescue our families?

Of course. Lead the way.
Lead the way? They'll tear us limb from limb! We are no match for their savage power.

Please, continue up the trail to the right. You will find their den in a clearing not far from here. We will follow behind when things are safer.

Very well. I will handle it.

After exiting the Wolf Den[]

My love, you are safe. Is it done? Is Kiril dead?
He is dead, my love.
Then nothing stands in our way any longer. The pack will be ours to control! Bring back those prisoners!

(Emil and Kuleida turn into werewolves; this begins the fight against Emil)


Szoldar Szoldarovich
While we mourn those who were killed, you found many villagers who were long feared dead. You have brought a glimmer of hope where there was none before.
