With the new “Digging Deeper” patch for TSW finally live we are going to give you a few walkthroughs for the new missions in the game. You can see the Digging Deeper mission walkthrough that we wrote up yesterday if you are looking for help with that.
This mission guide is for the “Strangers From A Strange Land Mission”.
Zone: The Savage Coast
Starting Location: 153,869
Mission Type: Investigation
Tier 1: Examine Red’s Map
When the mission starts if you turn around you will see a map on the wall. Inspect it then head down the road to Blue Mountain.
Once you head down here you will be around where the “R” rune is on the map.
You need to find the first runestone and you will find it around co-ordinates 527,252, once you have found it examine it and you will see two ravens fly over and land in front of the stone.
You need to listen to the Raven on the left.
He says: ““Thought comes before memory. But memory recalls the path. I’m thought, he’s memory. You can have that one for free.”
Now listen to the Raven on the right and you will get another cryptic message:
“We laid our bodies upon this far shore, exhausted, only to lift them against worshipers of a dark sun. We carved this story in stone, where it waits still to be read.”
Tier 2 – Find Second Runestone
Next up you need to head to the next runestone which is further up the map.
Examine the stone as before.
This time Huiginn will say: ““Memory is a Servant of those who prove worthy of thought. hint-hint.”
Then Muninn will say: ““From our frozen birth land, we crossed a white cropped sea to green isles of endless rain. This, too, we carved in stone.”
Tier 3 – Find Third Runestone
Next up head to the Runestone that looks like an “N” on the map.
Same thing here as Huiginn will say ““Who is the great one who grasps the earth, swallowing wood and water? Bad weather he dreads, wind, but no man, and picks a fight with the sun.”
The Answer is “Fog”.
Tier 4: Find The Fourth Runestone
You will get another riddle here:
“What beast is that which defends fighters; it bears a bloody back, but men it saves, meets spears, gives life to some, and lays itself inside a soldier’s palm?”
The answer is “Shield”.
Tier 5 – Find The Fifth Runestone
This one is in the top left of your map.
Same thing here:
“Wise man, King, you know the drill: ‘The mind-whacker, the word-thwarter, the word up-raiser”
The Answer is “Ale.”
Tier 6 – Find The Sixth Runestone.
“Four hang, four sprang, two point the way, two ward the dogs, one dangles after and is always rather dirty. (Legs, Eyes, Horns, Tail)”
The answer is “Cow”.
Tier 7 – Find The Final Runestone
Same thing here:
“Had you guessed? The wise man was the All-Father, the Wednesday man. The raven-god. In his honey dreaming we shall carry him these new thoughts, these new memories.”
“In time, they made to return to the lands of snow. Only to be taken by the sea where the Draugr drown. This Loki knew, so he did not sail. South, he went, to find the secrets of the dark sun.”
Once you have listened to the crow’s riddles you will have completed Strangers from a Strange Land!
