Type Description
Main Quest

Upon the Phoenix's wings, Joshua flies his allies away from the still-smoldering ruins of the Crystalline Dominion and home to the hideaway. Alas, what should have been his happy reunion with Clive and Jill is overshadowed by the roiling clouds that have spread across the realm, driving all who wallow beneath them to desperation and despair.

Things Fall Apart: Walkthrough

Things Fall Apart begins immediately after you fast travel to The Hideaway at the end of the last quest.

Firstly, follow the marker and speak to Otto. Next, you'll need to speak to Vivan and Harpocrates, both of whom are in their usual places.

Return to Otto and speak to him again. You'll be given three tasks — one in Martha's Rest, one in Northreach, and one in Dalimil. We'll go through them in that order.

Fast travel to Martha's Rest. Go inside the inn and watch the cutscene. This triggers a quest named The Flames of War — click the link for more information.

Once that's done, fast travel to Northreach. Enter the city and veer right to go to the Veil. Approach the girl outside and a cutscene will start. This will start another quest called Why We Fight. Complete this next — click the link for more info.

With that finished, fast travel to The Dalimil Inn. Talk to L'ubor. This begins one last quest named Down the Rabbit Hole. Click the link for more.

With that last task complete, fast travel back to The Hideaway and talk to Otto. Watch the cutscene. Afterwards, fast travel to The Krozjit Echoes, which ends the quest.
