Trial and Error: Walkthrough
Trial and Error begins when you speak to Nazaire in The Hideaway. He will ask you to oversee a new recruit's capabilities.
Fast travel to Northreach. When you get there, speak to Nazaire. After that, follow Ember towards the outpost called Eastwatch. As you approach the location, watch the cutscene. Fight the tot aevis.
