    Guide to Arthas Storyline


    A short PSA. I tried to find information about this quest or walkthrough, since the devs didn’t bother to invest in any proper lore or even a proper story, but couldn’t find any details. I have seen many posts asking about this but never a detailed answer.

    My main problem with the County of Orths story is that after the one in Teltress, where some talented writers thought you’d have fun choosing between assimilation and exclusion (I’m not judging, you do. ), I wanted to know what was going on in Orthes before I accidentally sided with someone.

    in short: There are two a-hole nobles, one about Birthright, the other about some Sky Daddy, and they’re tearing up the land. So, is this a repeat of the previous story? Of course not, there’s a third faction, Tadda, the Legion, which is a little less holish, but of course, it’s the one you discover last, maybe even after helping one or the other. The following section gives the steps required to join the Legion.

    Their camp is in the northwest of the map, just follow the road north from Cortia as it arches west and you’ll be there. Basically what you have to do is find the legion, then find the nobles, still kill everyone involved to finish them off. Maybe you can stop reading here if you don’t want any spoilers.

    Quest Steps (Spoilers)

    1. I went to the camp of the army and hunted deserters for them.
    2. I went to Lord Vernalise’s castle and helped stop him from poisoning the well. Did not tip the balance. Also, some older posts mention this step as a prerequisite to unlocking his vendor and getting the porridge recipe from him, but I bought it from an Orthes vendor, from him. Before I knew it could be a problem.
    3. I went to Lord Lehart’s castle and took on the mission of destroying the caravan, but as a last step had to kill my boy-hostess so that he could not get the money back to his master. It wasn’t the last quest I did, but I think from what happened in the next one, he must have cooperated with his master by escaping.
    4. Abbot’s quest from St. Allure Abbey, working for Vernalise. Except in the end I had to kill Abbott myself, otherwise I was summoned by his master and that wasn’t the goal (uber write again, congrats devs).
    5. Now that you’ve more or less balanced your hatery, you’ve been summoned by the Legion.

    The final result, in the Storyline window:

    PS: Don’t worry about the bridge.
