Reward: 100 Renown, 3500 Gold.
Your mission is to help Briar Rose close the mysterious portal at Darkwood Lake, as Minions clearly have some unholy business with it. After a small chit-chat with Briar, you'll have to make your way through some enemies, and then cover her back while she reads some magical inscriptions. Minions are in strong numbers in here and it's advised to use spells like Enflame to take care of them. The quest will end once the counter shown on the right side of the screen fills up. If you haven't let Briar get hurt too much, she will be impressed by your skills and invite you to fight by her side whenever you feel like. You will meet again.
