Main Quest: The Lion's Will (Part 2)

Did we miss anything in this section? Is there something we didn't discover? Let us know!


Walkthrough

You'll find yourself locked away in a cell in the Red Keep Dungeons (#1). You won't have any equipment, and you won't have any way to escape -- at least for a few seconds until Lord Varys shows up and unlocks your cell. Varys will tell you that there are secret passages linking the Dungeons to the Throne Room, and he'll offer, should you survive the trip, to get you an audience with the queen.

First up, you'll need to retrieve your belongings. You'll find your weapons on a table next to a sleeping guard (#3), and you'll find everything else in the guard room (#4) -- with a pair of guards who you'll have to fight. Along with your belongings, you'll also find the Key to the Red Keep's Cells, which will unlock a nearby gate in the prison (#5)

To continue on, you'll need to enter the cell on the northern side of the prison (#6). Once there, you'll receive a short tutorial about using your special ability, the "Vision of R'hllor," which will allow you to detect hidden items. When you activate this ability in the cell (by pressing the R key on the PC), you'll discover a way to open the back wall of the cell, which will give you access to the secret passages. Going through this opening will earn you 100 xp.

Note: Along with finding levers required for your progress, the Vision of R'hllor can also detect secret stashes of equipment ($).

The secret passages wind their way up and down through the Dungeons, the Upper Basement, and the Lower Basement. For the most part, you'll only have one way to go, so if you keep moving forward then you'll eventually find your way out. In a few places you'll run into enemy Gold Cloaks, but shortly into your trip you'll meet Little Bird (#8), who will help you out. However, Little Bird will leave you just before the final battle (#17), and so you'll have to defeat five Gold Cloaks (three initially and two more later) on your own. This can be a tough fight, so hopefully you still have Flammable Oil, or some sort of healing potion, or the "Regenerative Heat" ability.

At the end of your escape, you'll see Lord Varys once again (#18). He'll give you a short pep talk, and he'll suggest that you not mention his name to Queen Cersei. Then he'll be on his way. You'll receive 200 xp at the end of the conversation.

As you make your way through the Throne Room, the guards will spot you (there isn't any way to avoid this), and they'll take you to Queen Cersei (#21). When Cersei questions you, tell her about escaping, or change the subject, but don't refuse her or else she'll have you executed and you'll have to load your game. In the rest of the conversation, just agree to whatever Cersei asks, and you'll end up being paired with Valarr to track down your brother. For successfully navigating your way through the conversation, you'll earn the bonus trait Talkative (deflection +1%) plus 450 xp.

To end the quest, simply enter the antechamber to the Throne Room (#23). You'll run into Valarr there, but then Valarr will get summoned into the Throne Room to learn of the arrangement you just made with Cersei.
