|Kelvin's Cairn was named for the great frost giant king of old who was buried beneath it, so the legend told. Utaar was one of the few remaining frost giant kings of Icewind Dale. He had delved deep under Kelvin's Cairn and broken the seals set by the clerics of Tempus on the Tomb of Kelvin. Utaar's action had disturbed the dead, and we would have to lay them back to rest before following Utaar into the catacombs of Kelvin's fallen city.|
Explore the area to reach the first Tempus shrineFollow the objective marker and battle the enemies at the shrine. Take note that these enemies are far stronger than the ones battled before especially if you've taken those missions at Challenge Rating 1.
Go down the road and dodge the traps. Jump towards the next area and defeat the enemies there to get a Short Rest. Continue to head down the path to eventually reach the withered orchard. Battle the enemies there.
Head down the path, try to avoid the ice spikes below the jumping point. Keep going on the path to battle a troll. Jump over the chasm, head right, jump over another chasm to reach the sunset plaza. Defeat all the enemies here.
Follow the objective marker and climb the ledges. Head north to battle the troll. Climb the ledge and the wooden path and battle the enemies on to. Head to the wooden bridge and take the portal to the crystal outcrop. Defeat all enemies there.
Once all enemies have been cleared, head to the edge of the area to find a portal. Ride it to the soul well.
Step on the plates to restore the sealAs you enter the soul well, you will see an immobile giant in the middle. Just before him are two pressure plates. Step on them to restore the seal.
Battle the boss to end the missionOnce the seal has been restored, the huge giant will spring back to life to battle you, summoning several minions as well. Defeat him to end the mission.

The battles in Dungeons are pretty difficult considering the jump in Challenge Rating. It is advised that you find teammates in order to easily accomplish this mission.
For those going solo, Catti-brie and Drizzt will be the best options here. Catti-brie will be useufl thanks to her ranged attacks. If you managed to get a bow with the Acid element, this will make her extremely potent as giants and trolls here are pretty much susceptible to being Poisoned.
Drizzt's Blink is very helpful dishing out massive damage to unsuspecting trolls and giants in this area, making them easier to kill. With Drizzt's fast mobility, he can safely dash out of range for most AoE attacks used by the giants.
While he is not overly difficult as he is big and rather slow, he does pack a punch and a few hits on you will definitely chip away a huge part of your Health. Dodge and time your attacks well. Catti-brie and Drizzt can basically come out of this battle unscathed given the right use of their bow attacks and Blink respectively.
To get to the Attribute Shrine, climb up the ladder just before Juurn the Twice Risen's area.
At the top, take the path that leads to the cavern. Inside there are trolls and a bunch of shaman goblins you have to defeat.
Defeating the troll will drop the Netherese Keystone. You will need two of it to disable the force field. The second Netherese Keystone is located in a cage high up the celing. There is a lever in the second entrance you can interact for the cage to come down.
Once you have the two Netherese Keystone, interact with the mechanism and the force field will disappear. You'll be able to take the attribute from the shrine now.
