Detailed WalkthroughEdit

This is a pretty simple runabout quest on the very top of HoonDing's Watch. After your previous efforts ascending the ruin, the spirits of four legendary Yokudan and Redguard heroes will have arrived to test you themselves. There will be no fighting involved, instead you will presented with a dilemma relating to that hero's life and they will ask you to answer it. Remember to read the inscriptions themselves, as well as watching to the visions and talking to the hero's spirits. There is no "right" or "wrong" answer, but they will explain the consequences of the choice you made.

Once you have spoken with all four heroes and answered their question, you can return to Farvad. He will relate Tu'whacca's assessment of your character which will differ on what choices you made. Afterwards, he will reveal that the true lesson is that being a legend always has a price.


  • The most important thing about this quest is that completing it will cause Captain Rawan to spawn when the player next leaves HoonDing's Watch, and start The Search for Shiri, putting the player back on the main track of the zone quest after this somewhat skippable diversion.
