Dyrford Crossing - description and map of the location
Dyrford Crossing is a location to the east of the Dyrford Village. There are places there in which you can complete side quests in connection with the village itself. Here, you will find the Ogre's Cave, Temple of Skaen or the ledge that you collect the drake's egg from. By taking the northern exit, you can reach Cliaban Rilag.
Important places in Dyrford Crossing
1. Dyrford Ruins
Under the statue, there is a passage to a separate location - Dyrford Ruins (M31). To gain access, however, you need to do one of the following:
- With Power at level 19, you can move the statue out of the way.
- With very high Mechanics, you can pick the lock and open the passage.
- First use the Hammer and Chisel, and then the Prybar to move the statue.
- Find the key on the ledge that you can reach from the Ogre's Cave (M30,2).
2. The Ogre's Cave
In the south-eastern part of the cave, there is an ogre from A Farmer's Plight quest. You will receive this quest from Rumbald (M29,3). After you handle the conversation properly, you will be able to hire the ogre as a mercenary for your keep. You can also defeat the ogre in combat, or leave him alone.
In the north-western part of the location, you will find a passage to the ledge. You will find the Skull key on a corpse there, which you will be able to use to open the passage to the Dyrford Ruins (M30,1).
In the north-eastern part of the cave, there is a Spider Queen, a very strong opponent. Unfortunately, killing the queen is not connected with any quest, nor does she drop any valuable items.
Remember to loot the cave. In the walls, there are stashes with valuable items hidden.
3. The Ledge
Here, you will encounter adventurers led by Sevis. To the north-west, there is a ledge with a drake egg on it. Both of the above are connected with the Nest egg quest, which you receive from Hendyna (M29,6).
Types of opponents and monsters in Dyrford Crossing
Wood beetle - The weakest enemy type in this location. Harmless, even in larger groups.
Stone beetle - A stronger version of the Wood Beetle. It has much more endurance and it is more resistant to attacks.
Widowmaker - A spider that is a threat only in larger groups.
Ivory spiderling - A small spider that is not too dangerous, but it usually attacks in groups.
Spider Queen - You can encounter the Queen in the Ogre's Cave. She has a lot of endurance points, but her attacks are not too strong, so you should have no problems here.

Forest Lurker - One of the strongest opponents in the game. It has high defense and a lot of endurance points, but it deals little damage.
Pwgra - A strong opponent that uses magic. It summons all sorts of Blights, which assist it in combat.
