This a guide to the Ultimate only Secret Quest of Ashes of Malmouth. While the steam guide (Credts: Luzzifus) for this quest has existed for quite a while now I still felt the forums could use one as well. So I’ve decided to post one.
I’m using the text and images from Luzzifus’ steam guide. While his guide was complete I still decided to add in some extra stuff in and also decided to format this guide to be “Spoiler Friendly” i.e I will use a bunch of spoiler tags so that people interested in solving this themselves don’t get everything spoiled for them.
The following is a guide to the Secret Quest of Ashes of Malmouth, for those of you interested in the Original Secret Quest refer to ADoomGod’s guide
Now first let me explain a few things:-
- The first and second Secret Quests aren’t related at all. So you don’t need to complete the first one to access the second quest
- The second Secret Quest (i.e this one) is like its predecessor only doable on Ultimate difficulty
- Continuing on the previous point, every item required for this quest can only be obtained on Ultimate difficulty. If there exists any exception to this it has been mentioned in the guide.
- You won’t have a Quest Log to point you in any direction so your only hope are the clues you find
1. How to trigger this quest?
To be honest there are two triggers for this quest, the search area for one of the triggers is beyond the scope of the game and therefore the explanation for it won’t be added to the main steps but rather would be mentioned in the appendix.
2. Mysterious Green Item-
While the true beginning of this quest lies elsewhere you will come across one of the key pieces of this quest accidentally as the placement of said piece is in a spot where almost everyone would go.
So just so we’re clear should a mysterious item like maybe an amulet with a familiar sounding name find its way into your inventory make sure you don’t accidentally throw it away
Remember this is the only way to obtain this item. This item will drop once per character.
If you sell it or throw it away then you can’t get another one and need to make a brand new character.
For those who are still not clear on what I’m referring to use the spoiler below
[spoiler]Next to the main gate lies the corpse of the aetherial titan. Stand right between its legs ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).
You’ll get a message on your screen and Sahdina’s Memento will be automatically placed into your inventory.
3. A familiar face in Moundale-
[spoiler]You will come across Daila Thornsbury in Mourndale who will give you a quest.
Unlike Luzzifus I won’t bother explaining this in great detail as this is a regular quest so you will have a quest log to guide you BUT I will explain how to get this
TRIGGER: You need to complete Daila’s Diary quest in Homestead to make her appear in Mounrdale
You don’t need to complete the Stormheart Secret Quest i.e Original Secret Quest to access this quest, you just need to return the diary to her back in Homestead
This quest is doable on all difficulties.
You don’t need to do this quest to access the secret quest. BUT an item from this quest serves as a hint for the secret quest[/spoiler]
