Once all the copies are defeated, pick up the feather from the ground.


Objective: Search for the Herald of Sorrow

The Herald of Sorrow can now be found in the farmhouse to the west of the burned down ruins.


Objective: Complete the binding ritual

Fight your way inside and upstairs. Once there, place the feather in the spot indicated to summon the Herald of Sorrow again.


Objective: Kill the Herald of Sorrow

The Herald of Sorrow is now a little more than a standard Revenant but is still not too tough. Once he is defeated your mission is complete.


Before you leave, consider picking up the side mission Scarecrows for Dummies from the Handwritten note next to where you placed the feather.
