Recommended Level: 37
To start the quest, head to Heraklion at Octopus Bay in Messara. Watch for a priestess with a quest indicator. When you approach her, she will ask you for help in dealing with the storms and rough seas brought on by Poseidon’s anger. Only a ritual will appease Poseidon and bring an end to the devastating storms. Unfortunately, the ceremonial ax is missing and the ritual can’t be performed without it. By now, you can probably guess what the priestess wants you to do.
However, as you speak with the priestess you learn that the ritual is the idea of the local fishmonger, Swordfish. The priestess is careful in how she speaks about the man, implying that he is dangerous. If you agree to fetch the ax, the priestess will point you to a cave east of town where the bandits that stole the ax are holed up.
Unlock the Arkalochori Axe in the Arkalochori Cave
When you enter the cave you will notice that is essentially one long tunnel. You won’t need to explore; simply head straight through the tunnel until you reach the very end of the cave. There are bandits stationed nearby, but the cave is large enough that you can avoid combat entirely if you are careful.
When you reach the treasure room at the end, nab your loot as well as the axe and exit the way you came in. With a little care, you can complete this entire quest without drawing your weapon. Once you return to the priestess, you are given the choice handing the axe over to her or keeping it for yourself.
