Tiltren Tomb of the Ancients walkthrough
Tiltren Tomb of the Ancients location
You might just stumble across the Tomb of the Elders before getting the bounty to go inside. It is surrounded by a snowy forest and is located near a bandit camp southwest of Stromkapp. You can walk up the hill near Old Wilburt’s Sheepfold for easy access.
Make sure you have plenty of flashlights with you. The interior is pitch black and you need light to see. If you run out of lights, your squad will run away in fear, injuring every member.
In front of it there is a merchant who will sell you torches and at the same time ask you to “pretend to be a scholar”.

Once you’re primed with torches and maybe some components to make more, head inside.
Upon entering, you’ll notice that there’s a flame counter underneath your fatigue gauge. This is how you keep an eye on how much light is available to you. Each stage requires a certain amount of light to get through and is automatically subtracted from the meter as you progress.
The first corridor is easy, just keep going straight. This brings you to a main room with three different paths to choose from.

bard statue room
To get to the Bard Statue Room, take the right path from the main room you entered first. Once you dig through, interact with the statue. This will unlock the Bard class, which is required to complete this room.

Look around the room on the left wall to spot a blue hourglass icon. Make a note of this as you will need this for later.
Go back into the first room and go down the last path in front. You will most likely encounter a fight with Creepers and Mole Rats here.
Fighting in the dark can be challenging. Creepers and mole rats have brutality when they’re in the dark, but being in the light makes them fragile.
Before accepting the fight, any rangers who have an empty left hand should equip a torch. Archers need someone with a flashlight to aim at targets, otherwise they have to be right in front of the enemy to shoot them.
Creepers have the ability to heal themselves with their bite, so keep that in mind. The number of enemies is also unknown as you cannot see them all. Mole Rats can be caught if you choose to add them to your squad, but they always have fragility when fighting outside in daylight.
Once you’re through the battle, you’ll come to a room with a large mural on the left. Examine it to find the power rune, which is in the top right. This room also has a triangle symbol, this time in red.
Mystery of the locked door
Take the only path to the right on the right, which you should not squeeze through as your horses may injure themselves. There is a corpse in the center of the room that has a key to the locked chest. Inside the chest are some luxury items as well as the Artist Codex 2.
Before inspecting the door, there is an urn on the right that you should examine for more loot.
The locked door can be unlocked with the puzzle wheels on the right. These correspond to the colored symbols found in the three previous rooms of the tomb.
