Other important information, in connection with Blood Sands
Do not attack Archdruid Rechstin too early (murdering him is required for the Servant of death quest). As a result of that, all of the NPCs in the Blood Sands will turn hostile towards you. This may make it impossible to complete one of the variants of the Sacrificial Bloodlines side quest, which assumes that you meet up with Keeper Wrdha and give her the sacrifice child.
In Blood Sands, there are many urns and chests, where you find lots of gold, magic scrolls or rare potions, among others. It is best to start exploring this location after murdering the archdruid, thanks to which you will not risk being caught stealing.
