|Areas in the vicinity|
ZixZax is West from the temple shrine at the dragon statue. He can help you decipher your parchments to find out the password ("Bellegar") used with the teleports in Broken Valley.
For a secret chest that contains the Blood Echelon Leggings, you need to collect three Dragon Crystals (found in chests surrounded by greenish light around the Maxos Temple Area) and place them in the small golden dragon statues near ZixZax. There is one chest behind the temple shrine, one in the North-Eastern- and one in in the North-Western corner of the area.
Bellegar (third fortune)Edit
If Sosostra told you your third fortune, as you go through the narrow pathway, Bellegar will appear and set you into flight. You will land on a ledge with lots of corpses in the Bandit Camp Area. There's also a chest with the Defenders of Aleroth Vampire Mace in it. This is also the place where Needleman's storage is (you'll be able to find out his password later and return here as a dragon).
Quests marked with ** are (partially) executed in this area, but can be started by talking to a character found in another area.
