Sidequests

Honor the Fallen

A Sun-Priest is seeking some help in Meridian, towards the center of the city, as he wishes to help three pilgrims in mourning loved ones lost during the Red Raids, but some obstacles stand in their way. Two of these involve Machines, while another involves a priest. The closest spot is the Shrine of Kings, which you can get to by going out the northern exit of Meridian, then taking the northern of the two paths heading east. Once you arrive, talk with Brageld to learn the reason why he can’t get past, then go and speak with the Sun-Priest. Feel free to ask him some questions, then choose "Enough" when you’re ready to move on; there will be a choice after that and then he will move. Talk once more with Brageld to finish up this portion of the quest.

For the next objective, you will be going to Sun’s Climb, which is located southeast of your current spot. Follow the main road east, past the first fork and to another, taking this one south. The path will eventually curve east, south again and then west. Follow this path to the top of Sun’s Climb, where you will find three Glinthawks waiting for you. Remember that fire arrows work extremely well, with two to three setting them ablaze and dropping them to the ground, where you can whack them with your spear. Once they’re out of commission, speak with the Banuk pilgrim to cross another person off your list.

You'll have to clear two areas of machines to help the mourners, pitting you against Glinthawks (left) and Snapmaws (right).

The last place you need to visit is to the southwest, so descend Sun’s Climb and follow the path to reach the destination, where you will need to kill two Snapmaws. These things will have some protection on their Blaze Canisters, so use a Sharpshot Bow to shoot them a couple of times to remove it. Once you do, a fire arrow to the Blaze Canister will cause an explosion and deal big damage. With them finished, talk with the Utaru pilgrim and head back to Namman in Meridian. He can be found past the Hunters Lodge and upon speaking with him, the quest will be over.
