In order to learn more about Gargoyles, you just need to kill them - you can find them in three spots in the city: (M31, 5), (M31, 10) and (M31, 21). You can also talk with Bras of Ban Ard (M31, 20), or buy a few books regarding gargoyles - they can be bought from Felicia Cori (M31, 25) and Bras of Ban Ard (M31, 20).

Step 2: Find and deactivate the magical seals

You will learn that gargoyles are magical creatures that guard the city and attack anyone inside the protected area. In order to get rid of the monsters, you have to find and deactivate magical seals which bound the gargoyles. There are three basements with seals: south of the main gate (M31, 5), north of the main gate (M31, 10) and nearby the amphitheatre (M31, 21).

Inside each basement you will find a chest and four signs which you have to extinguish in a given order. In order to learn the meaning of each of them, you can buy four books regarding the Runes of Power from Bras of Ban Ard (M31, 20) and Felicia Cori (M31, 25), 75 orens each. Each of them contains a description of three runes - first you have to recognize the four found in the basements. The screens below show the proper names of each rune.
