The Golden Secret side quest is all about one man causing trouble all around Holistone. To begin with, you’ll have to find the lost wheat of a tavern owner, and afterward, you’ll meet the troublesome man who will turn out to be a pain in the neck.

It is a long side quest with great rewards at the end. So, let’s begin our step-by-step guide!

Step-by-Step Golden Secret Guide

Step 1: Listen With Hogan

Valen is reporting something to Hogan at Holistone (276;156). You need to go and listen to that.

But since Hogan has a habit of nitpicking every detail of the report, Valen will ask others to go to Traveler’s Light and relax.

Step 2: To Traveler’s Light

Hogan will invite you to his favorite tavern for a treat. However, Joseline, the owner of Traveler’s Light at Holistone (267;163), will be frustrated since someone took her wheat that she ordered from Ryeham.

Valen thinks it might be stolen by the bandits.

Step 3: Find the Wheat

The wheat was indeed stolen by the bandits. You will have to engage in a fierce battle to defeat them.

Step 4: Plan with Hogan

Hogan will tell you to deliver the wheat back to Traveler’s Light while he escorts the bandits to jail.

Step 5: Return the Delivery

When you reach near Traveler’s Light to deliver the wheat, you will see a domineering nobleman engaging in a spiteful conversation with the tavern owner.

Moreover, his guards will threaten you to stay out of the matter.

Step 6: Defeat the Guards

The man with his guards was demanding Gemvine’s brew from Joseline. Now your job is to teach the man’s guards a lesson.

Step 7: Explain to Hogan

The dialogue boxes will appear where you’ll be telling Hogan what just happened.

Joseline will thank you for bringing her wheat back. Furthermore, a guard comes to Hogan and tells him about a nobleman who is making fuss at the South Gate.

Step 8: Go to the South Gate

You will need to reach Holistone (272;150) where the South Gate is.

Step 9: Check the Gate

The nobleman will be throwing around his money like it were nothing. You will need to check up on him before any problems happen.

Once you get close, you will see that the nobleman will be bribing the guards to let him go on a fishing trip. When the argument between the two parties won’t stop, Hogan will step in.

Step 10: Talk to Hogan

Hogan will let the man go on his fishing trip, but he also instructs Valen to track him.

Hogan believes the time is near when the man will learn a lesson one way or another.

Step 11: Save the Nobleman

Since he was throwing money around like there’s no tomorrow, the nobleman will be kidnapped.

Valen will see him getting kidnapped and attempt to save him.

Step 12: Find Valen and the Nobleman

Again, the suspicion of the kidnapping will go to the bandits, and you’ll have to reach their hideout, which is located at Holistone (316;142).

Step 13: Talk to the Nobleman

As expected, the nobleman will be very terrified by the whole experience and will have learned a lesson he will never forget.

He will promise that he won’t cause any trouble in the future.

Step 14: Traveler’s Light

Finally, it is time to go and relax at Traveler’s Light and enjoy a good ol’ cup of the famous golden wheat tea.
