Go to Jakobs Manor
Head to the onscreen marker to reach the travel gate of Jakobs Manor.
Ride the Lift
Make your way through the area, taking out enemies as necessary until you reach the location of the lift.

Go to the Dining Hall

Survive the Ambush
Surprise, surprise... it was a trap all along. A short cutscene will begin and reveal that that Aurelia has been working with the Troy and Tyreen. Thankfully, Wainwright distracts Troy and informs you to search for the Vault Key.
Once the cutscene ends, survive the ambush of COV forces.
Go to the Theater
After surviving the ambush, make your way to the Theater. As you make your way through the Manor, you'll encounter waves of COV forces that you will need to clear.
Once you reach the large Library, use the staircases to reach the top floor and travel towards the back of the room. As you near the back, a large Goliath will break through the wall. Defeat him and use the broken wall to reach the next room.
Kill the Anointed Goliath
Troy finally arrives on scene and transforms a Goliath into an Anointed Goliath. Defeat him to reach the next part of the mission.

Tips and Tricks for Defeating the Anointed Goliath
- The Anointed Goliath will send shockwaves out towards you, jump over these or risk being dealt significant damage.
- Always move around, as he has the ability to warp to your exact location. This special attack is one that you do not want to be caught by.
- At times, the Anointed Goliath will shoot out Flaming Skulls towards your direction. These can be avoided by simply running in the opposite direction or shooting them out of the air.
- This particular boss is rather challenging as the only real strategy to successfully take him down is to run and gun at every opportunity.
