HEY! You knew that dog can sniff out secret treasures. And perhaps you are already using Alester’s Vision of R’hllor to find secret passages and secret treasures. Well, together you can comb the world for dozens of secrets that grant you coins, items, and access to hidden areas. Here we reveal the top 5 secrets that you’ll want to discover in the game.
SECRET #1: VARYS’ SECRET PASSAGE IN THE SEWERS
Varys does give you a big clue to finding this secret passage: Look for the purple lantern in the sewers. However, it’s hidden deep in the sewer maze and Valarr’s men surround the passage. Defeat Valar’s men in the area when you’re ready to access the secret passage, then use Alester’s Vision of R’hllor to uncover the lever on the wall. Pull the lever to open the secret tunnel that leads to Varys and connects to Maegor’s Holdfast.
SECRET #2: TREASURE BEHIND THE ARENA BAR
This secret treasure is very difficult to spot as it lies hidden behind the bar in the sewer arena. Position Alester to stand in front of the bar next to the arena pit and use Alester’s Vision of R’hllor. The secret treasure appears behind the bar counter on the floor.
SECRET #3: DOG’S TREASURE IN HARLTON’S OFFICE
In order to bypass the locked gate barring you from Jeyne during the rescue attempt in Castlewood, you must either locate the secret passage in Harlton’s office or recover Harlton’s old keys in the fireplace ash. Switch to Dog, sniff out the secret treasure in the office, and then switch back to Mors to pick up the keys that unlock the gate out in the hallway.
SECRET #4: THE FIRST SECRET PASSAGE IN THE COLLECTOR’S MANSE
A series of secret passages connect the hidden areas in the Collector’s Manse for the “Avenge Riverspring” side quest, but if you don’t find this first one, you’ll miss most of the Collector’s hidden lair. Use Alester’s Vision of R’hllor in the basement to discover a secret passage in the western wall, which opens up into the Collector’s prison area.
SECRET #5: TREASURE IN THE RIVERSPRING GODSWOOD
Since you tend not to venture back into the Godswood after the funeral in chapter 2, and you don’t receive your Vision of R’hllor powers until chapter 4, you can easily miss this secret treasure. If you take a trip through the Godswood with your Vision of R’hllor active, stop by Alester’s father’s funeral dais. Use the Vision of R’hllor on the stone where Alester’s father once rested in the Godswood and you can recover some extra coins.
