A Clash of Kings - A Mount and Blade: Warband Modification Wiki

Shadows in the Night is the first part of the Night's Watch questseries. This quest is not an easy one as you will have to defeat an army of wights during the quest. 

Quest guide[]

  1. Travel to White Harbor, enter the tavern, and speak to Manfred.
  2. Re enter the tavern and speak to Septon Germund.
  3. Head to Hillhall and scout it out. Speak to the woman there. She will tell you to go to Barrowton and speak with Goodwife Myra.
  4. Travel to Barrowton and talk to Goodwife Myra in the tavern (in version 2.1+ you need to go in the kitchen in Last Hearth) . Myra will tell you to speak with her daughter Jess (she's right behind the counter), who you make love with to get the information.
  5. Visit the Abandoned Holdfast (Ruins of Cray), north of the Dreadfort and west of Last Hearth. 
  6. Leave the abandoned holdfast. Immediatly after, you will be attacked by the old man and an army of wights.
    1. Before 6.0 (need to verify exact version)
      • Thanks to a anonymous wiki contributor : During the battle with the wights, you can just auto resolve the battle and your soldiers perform a lot better. (It's worth checking the loot, you may find some heavy fur armour which is surpisingly good)
      • Bring at least a hundred high tier men and be ready for a tough battle. Speak with the old man and tell him you're looking for wights. He will then tell you that the wights are his.
      • (If you are playing a version older than 1.3 ,then you can dodge, if not then fighting them is required.)
    2. After 6.0 (need to verify exact version)
      • Fight is relativley easy you should not need more than 50 men.(but still note that you will lose strength and agility if you fail to defeat the wights or you fall in battle)
      • You will fight the wights right after you try to leave Ruins of Cray,there is no army anymore
      • The loot seems to consist of 9 items of which one is armor(45b 15l) ,helmet(45 armor),helmet (45 armor) and rest are a random selection of food/misc/low tier weapons.(could use verification ,but this seemed the case after about 15 tries)
  7. Once you have killed the wights, head back to White Harbor and talk to Gerold in the castle.
  8. Meet Septon Germund to finish the quest and gain your reward.

Words of caution[]

Rejecting any of the quest givers dialog will in most cases leave the NPC inoperable and make the quest impossible to finish without the use of console commands.

The Wights encountered after leaving the holdfast are particularly quick, and if for what ever reason you happen to lose the wights, they may once again be found wandering the region.

The Wildfire acts like the grenades in Fire and Sword - once you use them once, you can't use them again, they're gone.
