The most important thing to do here is to challenge the boss Demi-human Queen Gilika. You can find her in the basement of the Ruins. She is an optional boss and drops 8500 Runes when you defeat her. The reason you should beat her is to get access to the chest in the next room. You get the Ritual Sword Talisman from it. Other than that you can also farm Demi-Human enemies. They aren’t very great in terms of runes but two of their most notable drops are Rickety Shield and a Falchion. Lastly, you can also get the Shield Crash Ash of War here. This is dropped by a Teardrop Scarab in these ruins.
