Received from: Philippa Eilhart (M15, 14). After talking with her about the artifacts.

Step 1: Talk to Cecil Burdon

Head to Cecil Burdon (M15, 12), who can tell you more about the war that took place three years ago - Death Symbolized - Main missions - The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Head to Cecil Burdon (M15, 12), who can tell you more about the war that took place three years ago. ask him about all the details and you will learn where you can get the symbol of death, under the form of the Dun Banner’s standard.

Step 2: Go to the crypt in the woods and obtain the Dun Banner’s standard

In accordance with what Cecil said, head to the woods - Death Symbolized - Main missions - The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Game Guide and Walkthrough

In accordance with what Cecil said, head to the woods. Leave Vergen through the north gate (M15, 8). Head north, to the dwarven catacombs (M13, 14). Once inside, head to the lower levels where you will find a wall that can be destroyed with Aard. Once you go inside the room, Ekhart Henessy (M18, 4) – the standard bearer – will appear. There are two possible ways of obtaining the banner:

  • Killing him. Description in Step 3, Option A.
  • Lying that you used to serve in the Dun Banner. Description in Step 3, Option B.

Notice! Deceiving the wraith is far much profitable, as apart from the standard, you will also obtain the Sword of the Dun Banner.

Step 2, Option A: Kill the wraith

If you decide to kill the wraith, the fight will begin immediately - Death Symbolized - Main missions - The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Game Guide and Walkthrough

If you decide to kill the wraith, the fight will begin immediately. It’s not difficult, if only you remember to use the silver sword and help yourself with Quen and Yrden – attacking the enemy from behind or from the side. No other wraiths will appear, so you can focus solely on Ekhart. Once you kill him, search the sarcophagus and take the Dun Banner’s standard.

Step 2, Option B: Deceive the wraith

The wraith will ask you a few questions to check if you’re telling the truth - Death Symbolized - Main missions - The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Game Guide and Walkthrough

The wraith will ask you a few questions to check if you’re telling the truth. Below you will find all the proper answers.

Notice! If you make a mistake, the wraith will attack you (Step 2, Option A), unless you have the Dun Banner Cloak (you can get it from Skalen Burdon, if you win in dice poker with him twice) or the Beaver Cap (can be found in a chest during Baltimore’s Nightmare) – in that case you will receive one more chance.

Question 1: „You got it wrong”;

Question 2: „Menno Coehoorn

Question 3: „Ceohoorn is dead

Question 4: „Vandergrift and Seltkirk

Question 5: „Bigerhorn took me prisoner

After successfully passing the trail, take the Dun Banner’s standard and Dun Banner sword from the sarcophagus.
