Upon reaching a portal, interact with it to be transported to the Abandoned Farmstead. In this area, you will face the second boss, Aez the Collector. Defeat Aez and continue through the farmstead, clearing groups of enemies along the way.
The Forsaken Hamlet
When you reach another portal, interact with it to enter the Forsaken Hamlet. In this area, you will encounter the remaining four bosses:
