Detailed Walkthrough

At the conclusion of A mysterious letter, you learned of your grandfather, Tremadan, who was a former Arch-Mage of the Empire. You also received an old key that opens his tower. The key has no markings, and nothing telling you where the tower the key belongs to may be located. In order to discover more, you will have to do some research. The Loreseekers have the most extensive collection of books, kept at the Great Library in New Garand. To find the library, head to the western side of the city, then travel south, where the library is located on the corner. This is also where you find Anton Gerdt at the conclusion of Forgotten Lore. If you have not completed this quest, your reputation with the Loreseekers will not be high enough to allowed access to the library's information.

Once you are friendly with the faction, speak with Rur'azar, the Master Librarian. He will be able to research two topics for you, the key you have and the girl you met in the dungeon, Amarisa. Make sure you ask Rur'azar to research Tremadan and not Amarisa. These are two separate quests requiring different things to be collected. Upon choosing to research Tremadan, Rur'azar will say he needs two minotaur horns as payment and the research may take a while. Despite what he says, there is no time restraint on his completion, we simply have to go collect the horns.

Minotaurs are primarily found in the Northern Jabal Hills and within the Maze of Lamth. The quickest route on foot to Jabal from New Garand is to head east into the desert, continuing northeast through Kingsbridge, the Deadwood, and the Rhoneis plains. Hunt the Minotaurs in the northwest, and enter the maze if you need more horns. With two in hand, make the trek back to the Great Library and speak again with Rur'azar.

Your grandfather was a very famous mage in the Empire, though in the days before the downfall, he had become more reclusive and distant from his guildmates. It was believed he died during the Fall of the Empire, but 50 years ago a Thurmian wizard mention an arch-mage living in a tower in the Jabal Hills. It is time to head back to the Northern Jabal Hills. This time you want to explore the arid region to the south. Look closely when where the rocks come together in the southwest corner of this area, and you will see a small path you can take. This leads to the front door of Tremadan's tower. The only way to enter the tower is to have the key on hand and speak the name of your grandfather, Tremadan. Now enter the tower.
