To begin the Fields of Ruin quest, you must first converse with Phelan in the Blycroft area. This quest becomes immediately available upon entering the area and has no prerequisites. Phelan will request your assistance in dealing with the attacks plaguing the fields by placing protective ward stones.

After accepting the quest, locate the ward stones near Phelan’s house. Your main map and mini-map will display markers indicating their positions.

Placing the Ward Stones in Fields of Ruin

Once you possess the ward stones, it’s time to position them. Search areas will appear on your map, but the precise locations remain a mystery. I discovered the first ward stone in the southwest corner of the west field. The remaining two can be found in the north and southeast corners of the east field.

Interact with the designated placement areas to successfully position the ward stones. When all three ward stones are in place, you must summon Blackhorn. It’s time to prepare for a challenging battle.

Finding Blackhorn

A new search area will appear on your map, indicating that Blackhorn is within it. To summon Blackhorn, eliminate the Blood Clan Khazra until the progress bar on the right side of your screen is full. Once complete, Blackhorn will appear as a boss symbol on your map. Journey to Blackhorn’s location and defeat him to obtain his head for Phelan.

Blackhorn is Fire Enchanted and Explosive, so expect to endure fire damage during the battle. If needed, a healing well is available in the vicinity to replenish your potions. After defeating Blackhorn, his head will drop as loot. Return to Phelan and hand over Blackhorn’s head to complete the quest. Your rewards include an item cache, gold, and XP tailored to your level, as well as a +20 Scosglen renown boost.
