Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Elenwen and Canonreeve Valano outside Silsailen
Teldur hiding near the well

If you travel close enough to Silsailen, Ilemin will run up to you, yelling for help.

"They've burned the town! Please, please help us!"
Who set the fire?
"A group of soldiers came to town. They were dressed like the Marines, but... they set fire to the buildings! I heard someone say they were really part of the Veiled Heritance, that splinter group."
You should get clear. Who should I talk to?
"The Canonreeve's daughter, Elenwen, organized an evacuation. Last I saw, she was heading for the barn on the west side of town. Go quickly, please!"
I'll find her.

Alternatively Watchman Cirdur can give the quest, as can Aldunie. Missing dialogue These NPCs only give the quest if you have completed A Hostile Situation. It is possible to bypass these NPCs and pick up the quest from Elenwen directly.

Find Elenwen on the outskirts of Silsailen, just across the bridge to the west.

"We need to get this madness under control."
"Can't you smell the smoke? Silsailen is under attack! I barely got my father out alive! The Canonreeve, almost slain!
These brutes may wear the uniforms of the First Auridon Marines, but they're imposters."
Who are they?
"They're agents of the Veiled Heritance. I'm sure of it! Teldur, my father's assistant, is trying to organize a defense.
You look capable. Will you help Silsailen?"
I'll find Teldur at once.

Teldur, her father's assistant, is organizing a defense from within Silsailen itself, so go find him. He is by the well in the center of town.

"Are you insane? Can't you see the town is under attack?"
Elenwen sent me to help.
"Did she? How do I know you're not one of the imposters?"
Look, do you want me to help or not?
"Fine. Grab that bucket from the well and put out the fires. If you find any villagers, tell them they need to evacuate until it's safe.
What are you waiting for? Move like you have a purpose!"
What are you going to do?
"Refuse to answer an outsider's pointless questions, for one. I'll catch up with you at the barn later. Now go!"

Interact with the nearby well to get a Bucket of Water. You now have to save five villagers within Silsailen.

Despite Teldur's words, you don't have to douse any fires at all; just activate the bucket, then find five villagers each being menaced by a Heritance soldier (they are scattered about the area, mostly behind the buildings) and kill the enemies one by one. Or, if you like, you may douse the fires, though these are also guarded by Heritance soldiers you will have to fight.

Once five villagers have been saved, report back to Elenwen, who is in the barn south of where she had been standing previously, to complete the quest.

"The fires are under control, thanks to you."
I saved as many villagers as I could.
"We'll be a long time in rebuilding, but your bravery won't be forgotten."

You can then speak to Hanilan to find out who was behind the attack.
