Location: Caed Nua

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


When you first arrive at Caed Nua, it will be in ruins. However, after completing the quest The Old Watcher, you'll be allowed to rebuild it.

As of version 2.0, the stronghold was improved, and now it's worthwhile to rebuild almost everything, just for the new resting bonuses if nothing else. Some otherwise useful buildings include: the Eastern Barbican (#6), which will allow you to travel to Defiance Bay; the Warden's Lodge (#2), which will generate 15 bounty tasks for you to complete; the Botanical Gardens (#3) and the Curio Shop (#5), which will generate ingredients for you; and Brighthollow (#4), which will allow you to rest for free.

Information for all of the restoration projects can be found at the bottom of the page.

9 - Treasury

Once you've restored the Main Hall and the Merchant Stalls, a merchant will show up here and sell you basic supplies. You'll also find a treasure chest here. The ingredients created by the Botanical Gardens (#3) and the Curio Shop (#5) will automatically appear in it, as will any rewards earned from quests completed by companions assigned to the keep.

  1. "World" entrance to the Endless Paths of Od Nua. Once you've begun exploring the Endless Paths, you'll be able to use this entrance to jump down to Level 1, 3, 5, 8, 11, or 14. You'll need to scroll the map (by clicking and dragging on it) to find the entrance you want.
  2. Entrance to the Great Hall.
  3. Door between the Great Hall and the Dungeons.
