Onto the quest-
[spoiler]I know I have already mentioned it literally right above this post but just in case anyone decided to skip the above post then here it is. You’ll most likely stumble upon this item even before triggering this quest chain.
So this item can be obtained even w/o triggering the quest chain. But for anyone who hasn’t obtained it
For the witch’s pendant you have to go where Sahdina died: to Devil’s Crossing. 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.
DO NOT SELL IT. THE ITEM SPAWNS ONCE PER CHARACTER!
Step 1 -
As I’ve already mentioned Daila’s Mourndale Quest is not related to this but for those of you who wish to solve this quest with minimal assistance I’d recommend you guys to complete that since it’d give you a useful hint. You don’t even need to do it on Ultimate to get the hint, do it on any of the previous difficulties and make note of any peculiarities
[spoiler]You need to note every detail of every item you retrieve for Daila
[spoiler]You need to make note of every detail of the flower i.e Dravis’ Offering
[spoiler]The text on the flower is the only relevant part
The flower note from Dravis reads “A thorned flower for a thorned woman”. Wondering where that flower might come from, an area with thorny plants should come to your mind i.e Gloomwald[/spoiler]
Step 2 -
[spoiler]Exploring Gloomwald, you will eventually stumble across a chest in a house containing a lore note. So explore every house there and specifically open every chest in the houses you explore
Location of Chest-
Read the note and you’ll get the hint regarding what to do.
[spoiler]The note mentions a treasure chest somewhere in the vicinity of some mill. Unfortunately all the buildings are too run down to discern which is which so just explore areas near every building
After you open up the area using dynamite, you need to explore the area and look for hidden passageways. Use Camera Rotation so that you don’t miss any spots
There’s a hidden passage leading to another area with a cursed smith called Arcturus and a lore note on the ground (“Turn Back!”).
1. Cursed Smith (Heart of Darkness)-
Crafting the heart requires:
- 1x Ancient Heart
- 1x Black Tallow
- 1x Consecrated Wrappings
- 50,000 iron
The description of the Heart of Darkness says “Teeming with vile energies that hunger for an ashen altar”, so you should probably try to find such an ashen altar.
2. “Turn Back” Note-
Pick up the note and read it. It says “Do not be so Blue in the face. When Flame meets Flame, so shall the way forward be opened, …”. Noticing some weird capitalization, some of this seems to be important (Thank you Sean Bean and Nicholas Cage :rolleyes::rolleyes:)
