Enter Greatwood Entrance through Lookout Point. Some people from Bowerstone have been kidnapped by bandits and you'll have to find their captors and kill them. As you follow them, some bandit leaders will try to slow you down, but they shouldn't be much of a problem. At Fisher's Creek, a little under a dozen bandits will attack you on the dock and it is recommended to use a high-power spell such as Divine Fury, Infernal Wrath or even just Inferno to blast them all since fighting them with a sword can be health-expensive. Force Push is not a good alternative because it will knock over the hostages you are trying to save.
The last hostage is in Greatwood Lake, being held at the broken-down bridge where the silver key is located. Attacking the bandit holding the hostage with a sword or close-range spells will not work because he will simply kill her and you will fail the quest. Lightning, or a powerful bow/crossbow, are the best options because they will lure the bandit away from his captive and will in the process make him easier to kill.
As part of this quest, you'll receive treasure clue #1 for the Hidden Booty Hunt quest.
