    • In the second lake
    • Can also be unlocked by a rogue; ~40 DC on heroic normal
  • Optionally, from the northwestern lake, swim west and south. Talk to giant head to complete an optional objective. Completing this objective ends the domination effect on the House Deneith guards and Archons later in the quest - they will fight on your side instead.
