Note: If you search the tree stump to recover the acorn before speaking with him and ignore him telling you it's his house, he will attack you without any further conversation.
  • Swiftrunner - unavoidable fight past the Magical Barrier
  • Witherfang - brief appearance to end the fight with Swiftrunner
  • Gatekeeper - retreats into the ruins before the Warden can engage
