How to Unlock the Burnt with Love Hidden Story in Lost Ark
The Burnt with Love Hidden Story quest is a standalone quest that becomes available once you reach the Rethramis Border in the Rethramis Continent. To unlock the quest, it requires you to search for a Half-melted ring in a burning ruins located somewhere in the Rethramis Border.
Lost Ark Burnt with Love Hidden Story Location
The Lost Ark Burnt with Love Hidden Story location may be found at Rethrasmis Border on the continent of Rethrasmis. You can expect it to be in the area where buildings and wagons are ablaze, west of the map.
There are two NPCs on the other side of the river with two buckets of water. When you get close enough to the flaming building behind them, the prompt will appear.
What is the Burnt with Love Hidden Story
Burnt with Love is one of the hidden story quests that you can do in the Rethramis Continent. This appears to be a quest which tells of a love story between a man and a creature that ended tragically in flames. Despite the fact that the description for this Hidden Story is quite ambiguous. According to the description, “the man cried, holding the Half-melted Ring. The relationship might look bizarre to some, but it was pure-hearted and true.” There is a fire raging on the southern end of the Rethramis Border, near the Ankumo Mountain, and it is threatening to spread. If you get there, you will see a house that has been burned down.
It is necessary for you to enter the blazing wreckage. The half-melted ring is your clue and after getting close enough to the object, you will notice a prompt to examine. If you do so, you will receive the following message: “What looks to be the remnants of a frog have been charred. The small creature’s neck has a melted ring dangling from it.”
