The Hero of Skill
Follow the glowing trail through town to find Reaver inside his house. Unfortunately, he won't help you out unless your renown points equal 20,000 or more. If you don't meet this requirement, it's time to tackle some side quests! You'll find that Love Hurts and Rescuing Charlie quests to be your best bets to quickly rack up some points. Once you have enough, meet again with Reaver and pick up the Reaver's Dark Seal from the table then follow the glowing trail to a door in Wraithmarsh that leads into the Shadow Court.
Inside the Shadow Court, the glowing trail will eventually lead you to the seal's owner. But you'll have to deal with a few traps and several enemies first. When you reach the spiked floor, time your run across so the spikes are underground as you pass over, then open the chest on the other side. You'll soon reach a room that you can only proceed through once you've killed all of the creatures, including some balverines. Once clear, look for a wall along the left side that you can bust through for a Silver Key, then follow the glowing trail out of the room and drop through a hole to meet up with a crying woman.
After meeting with her, you have two options: Sacrifice yourself, or sacrifice the girl by giving her the seal. Obviously the choice is yours, but the "good" choice is to sacrifice yourself by keeping the seal, but beware that your character will now appear to age drastically. Once done, look for a chest on the way out, as you follow the glowing trail back to Reaver.
Follow Reaver through his super secret passage to the cellar and look for a chest behind the large barrels. Now as you follow the glowing path, you'll be attacked by numerous guards--although there's a lot of them, the basic tactics are the same. However, many explosive barrels line the path, which can be helpful in taking down groups of enemies. Oh, and be sure to keep an out for a couple of chests along the way, such as in a cave at the top of the first cavern (where the enemies first attack), then another down the left branch of the mine cart track.
Eventually, you'll emerge outside and regroup with Hammer and Garth, but the party won't last long as a Giant Shard is about to appear and spawn multiple waves of enemies--focus on taking them down first, then climb either the hill to the right or the structure to the left to target the Shard using your highest-level projectile Will power, but get ready to tackle more enemy waves when they spawn. Also, be on the lookout for a red beam that shard emits, as this precedes a strong attack that you'll have to dodge with a roll. You'll be done with him soon enough.
