Faro's Tomb: Walkthrough

Before heading to Legacy's Landfall, you can stop off at Fall's Edge during Faro's Tomb, although this is optional. If you choose to forge ahead, you'll stumble upon a shack, although no Quen will be around. Instead there's a boat outside you can take to cross the sea. Once you arrive at San Francisco, follow the trail to Legacy's Landfall. There are machines along the way so come prepared. Once you arrive, speak with Ceo and Bohai to learn more about the Quen.

Go north-east of the Legacy's Landfall to Thebes, which is also known as The Digsite in-game. You'll have to kill the Thunderjaw here, which is weak to Acid damage, but is best beaten by dislodging the Disc Launcher from its shoulder and firing any ammunition at the weak points on its body. Once you're done, head inside The Digsite with Ceo and Bohai.

You can't get in through the main entrance, so will need to dive underwater and follow the illuminated path into a burst pipe. The first turbine to your left will stop and start, so position yourself carefully and then swim through when it pauses. Head into the room on the left and interact with the console to turn off the next turbine. Swim past it and head through into Thebes. You can explore the living quarters here, including the gym, and pick up any Datapoints by scanning them with your Focus. Once you've made it to the main bunker room, let the Quen inside by interacting with the console next to the front door.

Head deep into Thebes alongside Ceo, Bohai, and Alva. Once you get into the large room with Faro's statue, be careful, because there are Corrupters waiting for you. You can kill these with Fire damage. Go deeper into Thebes and scan the Medical Chair for a Hologram Datapoint. Then continue deeper into the facility. At the locked door use your Pullcaster on the vent just to the right and enter the room on the other side. Interact with the console. Then fight the Quen and escape from Thebes to complete the quest.
