– Detailed Walkthrough –
The shade of Prince Naemon is using the Staff of Magnus to corrupt the Heart of Valenwood. Any soldiers the Dominion sends into Hectahame will turn feral. However, Indaenir believes you and he can enter Hectahame through the Shadow Wood, embracing the feral nature of Green.
Once across the bridge, activate the pedestals to enter the Heart of Valenwood. To do so, you must retrieve three keystones. They look like dark crystals. As soon as all three keystones are in place, you and Indaenir can enter.
You and Indaenir fight the Shade of Naemon and take the Staff of Magnus. However, the Heart of Valenwood is still corrupted. Indaenir decides to draw the corruption into himself, sacrificing himself for the Valenwood.
Cariel and Mane Akkhuz-ri arrive too late to stop Indaenir, but as he talks with you, Indaenir’s body is surrounded by leaves and a green light. He is alive, and Cariel kneels before him, calling him the Silvenar. He accepts his new role, and you tell the Queen what happened in Hectahame.
