Instance Overview

Fight waves of assaults while keeping the Torch-bearer away from the Inn. You will get some help defending the Inn from Second-watcher Heathstraw who must survive.

  • I try to wait near Second-watcher Heathstraw for the next wave of attackers.
  • If you have an offensive soldier, instruct it to engage the enemy before you attack the Weak Southern Torch-bearer.
  • Second-watcher Heathstraw has a better change of surviving if you engage the enemy before they get close enough to aggro him.
  • If you are not able to do the encounters between waves of attackers, most of them can be put off until after Goilog is defeated, but before you talk to Second-watcher Heathstraw to end the skirmish.
