The Burning Blooms is a side quest in Horizon Forbidden West. The story quest involves Aloy tracking down a Carja Huntress who was spotted roaming the wilds in No Man’s Wild. The recommended Quest Level is only 15 and you can complete it very early in the game for 3,750 XP, 2 Skill Points, and the Carja Shadow Face Paint.

How to Complete The Burning Blooms in Horizon Forbidden West

When you approach the quest area, you will notice a cutscene involving Talanah and some machines. Aloy jumps in to help her friend and she gets introduced to her Thrush. After talking to the NPC, you find out that she is searching for a friend who disappeared in the Forbidden West and it is up to Aloy to help her. After the reunion with Talanah, you will be asked to follow Talanah into the battlefield. Players will notice some footprints upon using their focus and they have to piece together the clues by following the tracks.

After pursuing the tracks, you will find an Utaru who is sitting on some stones. The character introduces himself as Lel and has seen Talanah’s missing friend. He tells you to head down the Western Ridge.

After doing down the Western Ridge, you will have to fight a Shellsnapper. If you are under-leveled you may have a hard time taking down the evasive machine. After taking down the machine, head to the tunnel in the area.

Upon investigating the tunnel with your focus, you will find a corpse. This will automatically complete the ongoing quest and trigger the side mission ‘Need to Know’. Aloy will not find out if the corpse is of Talanah’s missing friend or if it is someone else until you complete the subsequent quest.
