Flames of the Deep is one of the main pursuits in Dredge. In this pursuit, players are tasked with collecting the final relic, which is at Devil’s Spine, the region where the ancient civilization once lived.
Read ahead as we go through the steps on how to complete the Flames of the Deep pursuit in Dredge.
Step 1: Travel to the Ancient Temple
After delivering the fourth relic to The Collector, make your way to the island in the middle of Devil’s Spine where the Ancient Temple is. There, you will meet an NPC known as the Fanatic. He will give you the quest to fetch the Fathomless Flames by completing the rock slab puzzles in the area.
Step 2: Complete the Rock Slabs
Before heading to the rock slabs, it’s best to stop by the Charred Pontoon and grab some explosives, as you’ll need a couple of them to clear your way to the Rock Slabs.
The Rock Slabs can be found in P12, P14, and O14. Each of these rock slabs requires specific fishes in order to be solved:
- P12 – It requires a Spider Crab and a Squat Lobster, both of which can be caught using regular crab pots (at least 3×3) within the Devil’s Spine.
- P14 – It requires a Pale Skate (Volcanic, Day) and a Ghost Shark (Abyssal, any time). The Pale Skates can be found near the Ancient Temple, while the Ghost Sharks are often found near the east-northeastern side of the region.
- O14 – It requires any two aberrated fishes. You can easily get some by using the Atrophy ability on any fishing spot or a baited fishing spot as the ability raises the chances of catching aberrations.
Each sock slab solved will give you a Fathomless Flame plus a few more treasures and resources.
Step 3: Bring the Fathomless Flames to the Ancient Temple
Once you have the flames, you can then go to the Ancient Temple and place each flame on each of the statues. Then, talk to the Fanatic, and he will do a ritual which will cause him to burn up. From his ashes, you can then get the Antique Pocket Watch, which is the final relic needed by The Collector.
Before surrendering the final relic, consider paying the Old Mayor a visit at the dock in P10 to get a chance to do the good ending.
