Caed Nua: Keep - description and map of minor locations
The above map presents the interior of the Caed Nua Keep. You can explore this building once you have arrived in Caed Nua, which is visible on the world map. The purpose of this is mainly associated with completing one of the game's main quests. After you get to the keep for the first time, you encounter several groups of monsters, whose eliminating is not going to be too difficult.
Important places in the Caed Nua Keep
1. Great Hall
Main quests: The Old Watcher - deal with several monsters and talk to the Steward about Maerwald.
In the dungeon, there are lots of spiders - some of them are in the main corridor, and some in the cells. Attack them one by one. In the dungeon, there is a passage to the first level of the Endless Paths of Od Nua (where Maerwald is).
You need to restore this location to turn it into the treasury. This will result in the appearance of the General Goods Merchant. Among other things, he offers potions and a prybar.
Quests that you can obtain in Caed Nua Keep
Side quest: The Master Below - Talk to the Steward right after you kill Maerwald (M13,1).
Important NPCs in Caed Nua Keep
Steward (M13,1) - talk to her after you arrive in the keep, and again after you kill Maerwald.
Types of enemies and monsters in Caed Nua Keep
Spear Spider - These spiders are bigger and more difficult to defeat. Deal with them before you take on the smaller monsters
Other important information in connection with the Caed Nua Keep
The keep comprises several small areas, which are connected by climbing stairs. It is fully optional to explore the library and the barracks. You will visit the great hall and the dungeon as you progress in the main storyline.
You should find a very fine sword in the vase at the keep's entrance (Great hall). It is worth it to obtain the sword and hand it over to a warrior in the party.
Around the keep, you encounter souls. It is possible to have short conversations with them, but it is fully optional and you can locate Maerwald without their help.
At first, the keep is ruined. You can restore it and the options to do that become available some time after you have started the Never Far from the Queen main quest (again, talk to the Steward and access the keep's options menu).
