Meet Sebastian by the Overlook
Go to the place marked on the world map and talk to Sebastian. During the conversation, you can choose how you will deal with the enemies - silently or in open combat.
Reach the entrance to the mine
Along the way, you'll have to fight two groups of Ranrok's loyalists. Deal with them as you see fit and enter the mine.
Search for the Rune Symbol
As you progress through the mines, you'll encounter more Ranrok loyalists. When you reach a larger cavern and deal with more enemies, use Accio on the chest and then Levioso and jump to a higher level of the location.
Going further, you will reach a destroyed bridge - repair it with the Reparo spell, keep going and fight more enemies.
You will eventually reach a large arena where you will have to fight many opponents. You should focus on Ranrok's loyalists first. Larger spider opponents can also cause some problems - it's worth using Ancient Magic on them. There are many items in the arena that you can throw at enemies.
After defeating all the enemies , you will need to hit three runes with a fire spell to open the door:
- The first rune is next to the door,
- The second rune can be found above the door (you can use the crate to jump to it),
- The third rune is on the right side of the cave, near the ceiling - looking towards the door.
Explore the chamber
After entering the chamber, collect the pieces of the portrait from the chest - you will find it in the place shown in the picture above.
Place the portrait into the triptych
Go back to the crypt and put the canvas in the triptych. After a short cutscene, the mission will end.
