Walkthrough for Ash Giants Quest in Outward ...

In this guide, you will discover a comprehensive walkthrough of how to complete Ash Giants.

You will first need to make your way to Berg and talk with Rissa Aberdeen. After you have spoken with her, she will ask you to do a favor for one of the three people in the city. After you have completed a favor, you will be able to join the Blue Chamber.

Accepting The Quest

The first faction quest for the Blue Chamber begins with a council meeting to accept the quest.

Once this quest has been completed, contact Rissa Aberdeen once more, who will give you the quest. If this is the case, please wait for three days and talk with her again.

Meeting Highlord Cyr

Your first task is to meet with Highlord Cyr, who is found in the Ash Giants'' village. This village is located in the northwest portion of the Hallowed Marsh, as shown on the map above.

Talk with Highlord Cyr when you arrive, and tell him everything you need to do.

  • I''''m here on behalf of the Blue Chamber Collective.

Cyr does not fully trust you yet, so he will as you to bring him Obsidiroots. that can be found in the Reptilian Lair. This location is marked on the map above as well.

After you contact Highlord Cyr, you will have a 30-day deadline to complete the quest. Always keep an eye on any business before you contact Cyr, so you have plenty of time.

Finding An Obsidiroot

Obsidiroot is found in the Reptilian Lair, which can be accessed from the north, coming from the Village of Giants.

Three branches are hidden inside this craze. Below, you may see the location for each one.

Root Location
Root 1
  • From the entrance, head forward and then take a right turn when you see a nest that has eggs inside.
  • This new room will contain the root behind a tree in the corner.
Root 2
  • From the first location, look for a wooden chest nearby. From here, you should see a small path, with a group of fireflies along it.
  • The root will be near this first group of fireflies.
Root 3
  • The final root will be near the entrance of the Lair.
  • Rather than heading to the right, head left until you drop down into an area with ore. Next to this ore, you can find the root sitting on a platform.

Increasing Your Negotiation Power

The objective of the gathering the Obsidiroot for Cyr is to increase your negotiation power, but there are also a few additional methods to increase it. Below, you can see how the negotiation process works.

Cyr only asks for one Obsidiroot, but to gain additional power, be sure to collect all three.

This is the item found within Blister Borrow in Chersonese. Helen Turnbull will give you a massive reward for her bringing the garnet, but you may also bring it to Cyr to gain additional power.

This is a dungeon that can be found south of the Village of Giants. This location will display as the Giants Ruins on the map.

When you enter the dungeon, you may discover a book lying on the ground. This book is free to read every page, providing guidance for negotiations.

Cardinal Bourlamaque is a monsoon national park. He will teach you about the Giants. Be sure to go through every conversation option while speaking with him.

Lastly, we have Gold Belly. This NPC is found in the Giants'' Village. Going through all of his dialogue options will provide you with greater negotiation power.

Negotiating With Highlord Cyr

Return to Cyr after obtaining the Obsidiroots and completeing the above tasks.

When you speak with him, inform him that you are ready. If you have completed all of the optional tasks, you must complete the first steps.

If you didn''t complete the optional tasks, then the negotiations will be unsuccessful. This does not imply that you have failed the quest, but it does imply that the Ash Giants will not join the Blue Chamber Collective.

If you fail to negotiate, you will have to continue to speak with Cyr. Below, you may find two options.

  • Option 1:
    • Mention that there needs to be a new Highlord, and then engage in combat with Cyr.
    • If you die, the quest will result in an overall failure.
  • Option 2:
    • Tell Cyr that you are sorry, resulting in a partial success.
  • Mention that there needs to be a new Highlord, and then engage in combat with Cyr.
  • If you die, the quest will result in an overall failure.
  • Tell Cyr that you are sorry, resulting in a partial success.
  • Mention that there needs to be a new Highlord, and then engage in combat with Cyr.
  • If you die, the quest will result in an overall failure.
  • Tell Cyr that you are sorry, resulting in a partial success.

Possible Rewards

Return to Berg and meet Rissa Aberdeen after negotiations close. There are a few possibilities to choose from depending on the outcome.

If you completed all of your additional tasks prior to the negotiations and answered all of your questions correctly, you will have a great year.

Rissa will reward you with the following rewards if you achieve a partial or complete success.
