Once the Fireclaw has been dealt with proceed to talk with both Amadis and Talanah. It will now be time to visit the Rot.

FIND AN ENTRANCE TO THE ROT

Follow Amadis and he will take you to the Rot, obviously the front door is locked so we need to find another way inside. There is an entrance around the back, by the water.

Once inside there will be many Rebel threats lurking around, eliminate them and open the gate to allow both Talanah and Amadis inside.

KILL THE TIDERIPPER

After eliminating the Rebel threat there should be a scene that triggers, followed by a fight against the Tideripper.
