While Geralt was venturing through the north of Ard Skellig, he found a cave called Yustianna's Grotto northeast of Rogne and the Miners' Camp signpost. Inside the cave, the witcher found some elven ruins and further inside were some bandits talking. They told the witcher that he ventured a bit too far and asked him to pay if he was to leave alive. The witcher either pays 150 , casts Axii (Level 2), or refuses. If the witcher paid them (15) or casted Axii (40), he'll be transported back to the entrance of the elven ruins in the cave. Coming back after paying or casting Axii will trigger the bandits to get mad and attack the witcher. If the witcher initially refused to pay, the bandits will attack to forcefully take his coin. The quest ends as soon as Geralt is transported back or kills the bandits. If Geralt killed the four bandits, one of them will drop the Highwaymen's journal. The journal will reveal that the bandits found the cave by following a map they bought but were disappointed at the treasure they found so attempted to instead live in it. The witcher can then loot all the money and valuables left in the cave namely the Superior necrophage oil and Superior Black Blood manuscript page and some relic swords like Glory of the North, Carabella, and Ard'aenye. Exploring further into the elven ruins can also reveal a concealed pathway that can be opened up by the eye of nehaleni. The concealed section of the cave can also be looted to a few more loot leading back to the entrance of the cave.
