- "Cortese, Merin's brother, is dead, and Elvar lacks the mettle to tell Merin. He begs of you to serve as the bearer of bad news."
The quest requires the Arisen to speak with Elvar to start the quest. Elvar can be generally found in his house on the road to the chapel in Cassardis, or praying in the church, and feels guilty about the death of Merin's brother, Cortese.
Deliver the News to Merin
Report back to Elvar
Once the Arisen has spoken with Merin, report back to Elvar the news.
Upon speaking to Elvar, the quest is concluded and the reward is received.
This quest can be easily missed when starting the game. It cannot be completed once the quest A Rude Awakening has been started. (Fixed on PC version)
- Elvar might be found in his home, but sometimes wanders the streets and can be hard to find. His house is the last one on the right on the road from the Inn to the chapel. At times, he can also be found in the chapel.
- For the time of this quest Merin can be found crouching by the northwestern corner of the ruined house where Benita treats the victims of the attack of the dragon.
- After completing this quest your Pawns may comment about paying Corteses grave a visit to honour him. His grave is likely the one with flowers and herbs place by it - near one corner of the Village Chapel.
