Private Hawthidon sends you just up the road to the northwest into a Nasher-infested area of Blacklake District to search for clues regarding the whereabouts of Gothwan Cooper.

Objective[edit | edit source]

  • Search Gothwan's known hangouts for clues to his current whereabouts.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Private Hawthidon
Our best hope for finding Karzov and the stolen Crown lies with the Nasher cutpurse Gothwan Cooper who took part of [sic] the theft. I've marked a few of his known haunts on your map. Investigate those areas, and see if you can turn up some clue to where he may be hiding.

Steps[edit | edit source]

  • Search for Clues to Gothwan's Location. (0/3)
  • Return to Hawthidon

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Private Hawthidon
I've been keeping Sergeant Knox appraised of your progress. I believe he is quite impressed so far.

Completion[edit | edit source]

Private Hawthidon
The dismissive note, the dead bodies, and the sewer key, they all add up to one thing: Gothwan Cooper has been kidnapped by the infamous Dead Rats gang!

Quest synergy[edit | edit source]

  • Evacuate Blacklake: The barricades you need to clear for this quest can be found along much the same route.
    • Firestarters: Nasher Hexers can be found in the same general area, but acquiring this quest requires Evacuate Blacklake to be completed first.
      • Dirty Deeds: The thief can be found in the same area, but acquiring this quest requires Firestarters to be completed first.
