Knothole Glade is under attack by bandits. When you go to Knothole Glade you will speak with the Bandit Siege Leader in a camp outside the gates to the town. He will tell you that they will raze the town if they do not release the bandit leader that the town is holding. The town leader will tell you that he refuses and tells you to kill all the bandits.
Talk to the guard by the gates to open them. When you do the bandits will start attacking. You must kill them all before the bandit leader escapes while you are fighting the bandits.
It is not actually necessary to open the gates. When approaching the gates from inside the town, take a left and you will walk up a small path to a small lookout tower. From there you can hit all of the bandits, whether you can see them or not. Just aim around the campfire and eventually you can kill them all. Also, you can shoot them through the gate with your bow. move directly on the gate door near a decent crack and aim with your bow. You may see wood, but just move your targetting reticule around till it turns red and fire. Once you kill them all the gates fly open and the quest is complete.
Also, if you accidentally let a bandit slip past you, you can shock him with lightning which will stop him in his tracks and enable you to kill him before he goes any further.
Do not kill the leader or you will fail the quest.
Watch out for Area of effect spells like force push or enflame(Does not target neutrals & friendlies). You could inadvertently hit the guard and he will begin attacking you. You might also kill the bandit leader.
