Searing Falls - description and map of the location
Searing Falls is a small location to the south of the Woodend Plains. The most important location there is a cave in which you can find a huge dragon. It is worth noting that the entire location is full of Drakes, which are also challenging opponents, so try not to wander into this area too early in the game.
Important places in Searing Falls
1. The Cave
In the cave you can find one of the dragons - Cail the Silent. He is in the chamber at the end of the cave. At first, he will not bother you at all, and you will easily get there. However, after a conversation, you will have to defeat not only him, but also two Young Drakes and several Xaurips.
You can plunder the corpse of Cail and find the Burning Stone. You will need it to complete the Cinders of faith quest, which you receive from Fyrga at the Ducal Palace (M22,4).
Remember to search the remaining corpses and containers. While you're heading to the exit, you will encounter Xaurips that you had passed by earlier - they will be hostile now.
Types of opponents and monsters in Searing Falls
Young Drake - A strong opponent with strong defense and quite a few health points. He deals a lot of damage, both in direct combat and at range (fire attacks).
Drake - a stronger version of Young Drake. All of its statistics are proportionally higher, which makes him a more dangerous opponent.
Xaurip - A weak opponent, but it can be a nuisance while you are fighting the stronger Drakes. He can use melee weapons, ranged weapons or even magic.
Xaurip High Priest - A strong Xaurip that uses magic in combat. It supports other xaurips and deals high damage. It has relatively few endurance points, so defeating it should not be too much of a problem.
Xaurip Champion - a strong xaurip that uses a spear. It is not dangerous by itself, but it can be a threat in groups.
