The Crucible is a quest in Seeker, Slayer, Survivor


Before the Faces of the Hunt deign to talk to the Watcher, the Watcher must prove themselves worthy of talking to. To achieve this, they need to retrieve at least one relic from the Isle of Kazuwari, so that they may trigger the next challenge.


  • In order to learn what it all means, talk to Engari first. Apart from a number of unique interactions with your party members, Engari will explain the mechanics of the Pool of Memories, the Faces, and other critical elements of the Temple, the Crucible, and the DLC.
  • The quest frames the collection quests for each of the faces and effectively aligns you with one of them, based on which artifacts you collect and which challenges in the pool you complete.
  • While you can unlock all three sets of challenges by completing the first step of their associated quests and offering the artifacts at the Pool of Memory, only one of them can be finished, thus awarding only one of the three soulbound items:


ID Objectives
0 The Crucible
10000 Now that I am a contender in the Crucible, I will be subject to its trials.
1 Locate an artifact prized by either the Seeker, Slayer, or Survivor, and consign it to the Pool of Memories.
10001 The Faces of the Hunt give their favor to those who compete in the Crucible games.

6 Return to the Hall of Memories.
10006 I have been chosen by one of the Faces of the Hunt. I can return to the Pool of Memories to receive their blessing.
8 Speak with Engari about the Faces' Artifacts.
10008 If I collect relics laden with memories of conflict, the Crucible can turn these artifacts into new trials.

I will need to speak with Engari, as he seems to know a lot about these artifacts that are so important to the Faces of the Hunt.

9 Earn the favor of either the Seeking Face, the Slaying Face, or the Surviving Face.
10009 By giving an artifact to the Pool of Memories, I can fight in a battle drawn from memories of the past.

Retrieving more artifacts and confronting their challenges will earn me the favor of the Faces of the Hunt.

End states
Yes 30000 I became chosen by one of the Faces of the Hunt. Only the final battle for the title of Champion of the Hunt remains.
