Regroup with your allies
|Head northeast from Rouecistre Blockade. Basim and Geadric's men are camped along the coast.
You can immediately begin the assault on Roucestre Fortress or not during the cutscene with Basim and Geadric.
Breach the gate
|The assault begins with a simple gate breach using a ram.
You can manually operate the ram or let the NPCs deal with the gate instead.
TIP: There are oil jars beside the defensive fortifications of the outer wall. Igniting them with arrows or torches will destroy springalds or burning oil cauldrons directly beside them.
Destroy the burning oil cauldrons
|Clear a path for the ram by destroying the burning oil cauldrons stationed around the outer courtyard.
TIP: Ignite the oil jars beside the burning oil cauldrons with torches
Shoot the Links to lower the Drawbridge
|Shoot the two links suspending the drawbridge with arrows.
There are angles on either side of the drawbridge to shoot from.
Breach the gate
|Breach the inner gate directly behind the Drawbridge.
It is recommended that you operate the ram manually to breach the gate as fast as possible.
WARNING: Two burning oil cauldrons will douse the area in oil and fire at regular intervals. Time your ram charges accordingly.
Find and capture Tedmund
|Tedmund is located at the highest level of the tower.
Climb the tower in order to get to Tedmund.
A boss fight ensues after reaching the highest level.

Follow him to the front of Rouecistre Fortress to confront Cynebert.
Speak to Geadric
|Speak to Geadric after the cutscene.
The quest ends after speaking to Geadric.
|Start by climbing the western wall of Rouecistre Blockade.
Guards are stationed along the wall. Be mindful of their position at all times.
|Climb the tower and position yourself on the overhang located at the front.|
|Enter the tower by shooting the breakable wall with an arrow.|
|Proceed to the lower level.|
|Shoot the barred door's weakpoint through the frame with an arrow.
Return to the highest floor of the tower afterward.
|Climb down and enter the unbarred door on the other side of the tower.
Be mindful of guards during this step.
|The naval chain's links are located in the basement.|
