Road to Westcliff
Meet Hammer in Brightwood
Use the warp point and follow the glowing trail to Brightwood. Once in Brightwood, you'll encounter quite a few enemies as you follow the path to Hammer, but thankfully the local guards will assist in your battles. After regrouping with Hammer, follow the glowing trail onward.
You'll come across more bandits soon enough--look for a Dig Spot by the first batch, then a chest amongst some a caravans on the left further up the trail. Immediately after the caravans, look for a Silver Key on a ledge you can drop to on the left. After dropping from a few more ledge, you'll wind up on a road before with more bandits. Take them down, then look for a chest on the other side of a low-wall you can hop, before you continue following the main path. Finally, look for a chest and dig spot by a light on the right side, just before the bridge.
After crossing the bridge, let Hammer smash through the wooden barricade, but prepare for a massive fight with some more bandits on the other side. Remember, you can always back up along the bridge if you need some space. Once clear, explore the camp to find a trio of chests: One atop the tower ahead, another behind the columns to the right, and the third behind a shack just right of the bridge.
Upon entering Westcliff, look for a chest early on to the left to obtain the Steel Cutlass--you may want to equip it now if you've been neglecting purchasing better items, as some fierce battles are with a creature called balverines are coming up. They're quick, so get ready to roll out of their way and use Time Control to slow them down, then use it again to warp behind them for melee attacks.
You'll soon meet up with Lilith, a woman who's husband was killed by the balverines. You'll have to escort her along the path until you reach a door leading to the Howling Halls. Of course, you'll encounter a few more balverines along the way, but thankfully only in groups of one or two. Once you reach the stairwell leading down to the door, look for a chest behind the columns to the right, then continue into the Howling Hall.
Inside the Howling Hall's, look for a Dig Spot on the right. When you reach the main chamber, a few more balverines await--take them down like before. Afterward, you'll discover that there's no way to cross the chasm in the room...that is until Hammer gets the idea to knock down a pillar, creating a bridge. But you'll have to defend her from a particularly nasty creature. Your best option is to slow him down using Time Control, then using it again (level 2) to warp behind him and attacking. Unfortunately, he likes to jump around, so be quick with the attacks. Once he's down, cross over the pillar that Hammer drops, look for a chest to the left, then continue onward.
Check the right side of the next main room for a chest, then grab a Silver Key from a room at the top of the spiral staircase. It won't be long before you reach a door that returns you to Westcliff.
