The Blinding Sounds quest will be available as soon as you talk to Danu. Danu can be found at the Swamp Gloom realm just outside her hut.

Silence the Fae’s Tune

Silence the Fae's Tune - Nightingale Blinding Sounds Expert Quest Walkthrough

For this quest, Danu agrees to offer some help to know more about the Sun Giant if you manage to silence out the sounds coming from the Fae towers. Your main objective is to go to five Bastilles of Intellect within the realm and complete their challenges. In case you have run out of bastilles to complete within this realm, you can do the ones in the other realms as they would still count towards the objectives.

Solving the Bastilles of Intellect will only require you to play a short memorization minigame. After activating the main pylon at the bastille, pay attention to the order of activation of the smaller pylons. Then, simply reactivate the pylons following the same order. Doing it properly will complete the challenge and open up a gate where you can get a Favour.

After completing five bastilles, report back to Danu to complete the quest. You will also be rewarded with the following:

  • x1 Danu’s Cauldron Recipe
  • x1 Charm (Charm of Thorns)
  • x3 Stalwart Infusion (Blocking Efficiency)
  • x3 Carved Stone (Granite)
  • x6 Ore (Shimmering)
