  • Summon Torrent, the horse and reach the location. As always, beware of the enemies that lurk along the way and avoid fall damage while you are on your mount.
  • As soon as you find a place with water, wait for a bit until you are invaded by Dung Eater. Now it’s time to get ready for the fight. If you’ve got a powerful build, this fight should be easy.
