Anyways to skip the swamp/tower quest?

Is there anyway to skip the tower quest completely? ;_; I know this it is very unlikely that the devs would create such a large quest unless the player had to complete it, but I hate the swamp. I find it boring, frustrating, and annoying, unlike the rest of the game which I have enjoyed so far.

It's a part of a main quest, you can't skip it. And after a while I started to appreciate the swamp's lack of loading zones.

The lack of loading screen is rather nice...

On to another question. Since I must complete the quest, how do I get the tablet from the golem? >_> I have, or know how to get (I bought the tablet from the mercheant, then died somehow and forgot to pick it up again) all the others, but I can't get the one from the frozen golem. Do I have to wake him up with the lightning rod?

Buy the storm from the elder druid for 500 orens, stick the rod into the golem, then use the lightning pylons to kill it.

Take note that you can kill youself with those Pylons! If you are inside the triangle when you clink on the third pylon, you will get zapped at the same time as the golem. You can take a hit at full health, but that's about it. Problem is, it's sometimes hard to tell how close you can get and still be safe, and there's not a lot of time with the golem chasing you. If you just can't get it to work, then you can use a Tawny Owl and Igni to kill the golem the slooooooow way.
