Fire in the Sky begins immediately after you fast travel to The Crystalline Dominion at the end of the last quest.

Head forward along the rooftops. You'll come to a ladder — climb it and watch the cutscene. Afterwards, proceed forwards and fend off the soldiers. A little further on are some more enemies to fight. After that, go through the gap and down the slope. Defeat the crabs, and continue following the sewer.

Watch the quick cutscene showing the belltower, then proceed to the rope lift and interact with it. You'll next need to fight some more soldiers. Go through the gap and fight another large group of enemies ahead.

After that, approach the gate on the left side and open it. Proceed up a ladder and through a second gate, then onto another batch of baddies. Ascend the next ladder and watch the brief cutscene.

Go through a couple of wooden doors, and prepare for another fight. With that done, continue through another pair of doors and down some stairs. At the bottom, open the large wooden doors and watch the cutscene.

You'll now be in a boss fight against White Dragon.

Proceed through the linear path towards the crystal's heart. Open the door and continue to find a group of enemies to fight. Go through the large gates, then drop down into another battle. Once that's done, find a wooden board against a wall and climb up it to continue.

Go up the stairs and right, then climb another wall. Watch the cutscene. Proceed forward to fight yet more enemies, then jump across the gap and go up the slope. Continue following the path, then watch the cutscene.

Another group of enemies comes next, then you need to climb the wall. Another group of enemies is waiting for you — defeat them and climb another wall. Continue forward, then drop down and watch another cutscene.
