Letting Off Steam I: Walkthrough

Letting Off Steam I begins after speaking to Mid and Blackthorne during Out of the Shadow.

Once the quest begins, speak to Blackthorne again. You can choose who goes with you to gather the stardust from the desert — it doesn't matter who. Once the chat's over, fast travel to The Dalimil Inn.

Head out of Dalimil's northeastern gate and head over to the marked area. Go over to the building to find your partner for the quest, and talk to them.

Next, follow the marker to find the stardust. When you get there, you'll see several marked spots where you can gather stardust — collect all five.

Return to Gav/Otto and speak to them. Watch the cutscene. Afterwards, fast travel back to The Hideaway and talk to Blackthorne to end the quest.
