The Broken Home is a side story quest in Wayfinder.

Description[edit]

Start

Head into Shrouded Woods and search for clues of what happened to Warden Rust's fiancee Raina after the Gloomfall.

Active

Warden Rust and his fiancee Raina lived in the Shrouded Woods before the Gloomfall. Enter the Lost Zone and see if there are any clues about what became of Raina after the Gloomfall.

Clear

After giving Graymourn a trinket belonging to Raina, she was able to deduce that Raina made it to Skylight. Or, at least, some part of her did. Overcome with emotion and conflicting feelings, Rust asked for some time to decide what to do next.

Dialogue[edit]

Start Quest
Warden Rust

Wayfinder. I know you've got a lot of weight on your shoulders. But when you go into the Shrouded Woods... I have a favor to ask.

Player

What is it?

Warden Rust

I grew up in Deepwood Holt. Had a home here before the Fall.

It's why I pushed Wolf to get this posting. I needed to see what had happened. But more than that... I had a sweetheart here named Raina. She was my light.

We were planning our wedding, plotting the course of our future together. And then... the Gloomfall.

I was trading at the Crossroads Foundry when it happened. I nearly died a dozen times trying to cut a path through the Gloom, but I'm no Wayfinder. A year now, not knowing if she's alive or dead.

Player

Was she among the refugees taken to Skylight?

Warden Rust

I'm still trying to find out. I was in the field when the evacuation was carried out, and they were gone when I arrived. I'm waiting on reports from Skylight. I've asked Maelon, but he won't talk.

There's a lot of bad blood in this small town. Maelon says I'm a coward, as if I chose to be away when the Gloom fell. I think he knows I was going to challenge him as reeve after the wedding.

Player

What would you have me do?

Warden Rust

Our home was out in what's now the Shrouded Woods. Raina's family help us raise the walls, and we built it together. It was a fine spot... far from town, but good soil, good trees.

When you're out there in the woods... please, look for my home. With the Reavers out there, I'm afraid of what you'll find. But I need to know. I pray that Raina might still be alive, though I know...

Player

I'll do it.

Warden Rust

Thank you. Please, bring me whatever you find... even if it is not what I would hope for.


Clear Phase 1

There's a bracelet half-buried in the soil. I can sense an embedded memory fragment... a woman? I'll better bring it to Warden Rust.


Clear Phase 2
Warden Rust

Well... were you able to find anything?

Player

The house is destroyed, but I found a bracelet.

Warden Rust

Blessed Arcs, this was my first gift to Raina! She wore it constantly. You just found it? There's no signs of damage, no dried blood. You found no sign of her?

Player

No. Reavers had been there, though.

Warden Rust

The Reavers have no interest in looting—they would leave a bracelet behind. But this proves nothing. Raina could have been elsewhere when the Reavers destroyed the house.

Player

The bracelet contains a fragment of memory.

Warden Rust

I'd heard that you Wayfinders can sense echoes and memories. What can you do with this trace? Can you use it to find her?

Player

No. I can sense it... nothing more.

Warden Rust

There is someone here in Deepwood Holt who works with lingering essence. Someone who could surely tell us more. The witch.

I'm sure it's unwise to seek out Graymourn, but I can't leave things like this! I have to know more. Please, Wayfinder... Take the bracelet to the witch. Convince her to help us.


Clear Phase 3
Graymourn

You keep returning to me... how befitting an echo. Why are you bothering me now?

Player

I can sense traces of spirit on this bracelet.

Graymourn

Traces of fear, traces of pain. Delightful, yes; your senses grow sharper, if you can feel this. And she did not die while wearing this bauble, or we would taste it. Why do you bring this to me?

Player

Can you use it to find its owner?

Graymourn

Seeking a lost lamb, are you? Hoping you can save everyone? You can't! Do you know how many the Reavers have slain? This one is surely food for crows and worms, little echo.

Player

So you can't do it, then? I thought not.

Graymourn

Ohhh, you think it's so easy to bait old Grandmother Graymourn? You think a little taunt will play on my pride, set me itching to demonstrate my power?

Player

Not at all. I just don't think you can do it.

Graymourn

Vexing bloodbag! Very well. Go to the Bone Orchard. Gather bundles of warbear bones and stones charged with arcanic power. Then fill these vials with the blood of Reavers... MANY Reavers.

I am indulging in your whims, therefore you will indulge mine. Get me what I ask for and I will give you what you seek. Now go!


Clear Phase 4

I've gathered everything that Graymourn asked for.


Clear Phase 5
Graymourn

How delightful. I wish to see how the lingering essence of the Reavers interacts with the pure essence of the fallen warbears—if one will consume the other.

Player

I've done what you asked.

Graymourn

Indeed you have. And now you wish to find your little lost lamb. I could make a grand show of it, but who has the time? So... A young woman... Avar... I sense traces of her in your Skylight.

You'll find her there, though that doesn't mean she's alive. She might be dancing in the streets, or perhaps your Omen has her heart preserved in a jar. She is there; that's all I can see.

Player

There's nothing more you can tell me?

Graymourn

You will find the one you seek in Skylight. Isn't that enough? Now, leave me be. I must work with this blood before the spark fades.


Clear Quest
Warden Rust

What news? Could Graymourn make anything of it?

Player

Graymourn says that Raina is in Skylight.

Warden Rust

So, she's alive?! Thank the gracious Arcs--

Player

She's there. I didn't say she was alive.

Warden Rust

Oh... I see. The trail leads to Skylight, but it could lead us to her grave. But this is still a geater hope than I've had since the Fall. She could be waiting for me in Skylight right now.

I can't leave my post. And... to be honest, I'm not sure if I want to know the truth. All this time, I've been fighting to get back to her. Now... if she's dead... I don't know what I'd do.

Truly, thank you for what you have some done so far, but... could I have some time to think? I'm... I'm not sure what to do next.
