Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Side Quest Guide – Inkwater Marsh
You can find this Side Quest in Inkwater Marsh at the location above. It appears after you have defeated the Howler. Speak with the Moki and he will ask you to track down an item dropped by the Howler when you sent it packing. You need to travel East to reach the location. You must have Double Jump and Sticky.
The Howl Fang is found here. You get a Gorlek Ore for completing the Side Quest.
You can’t reach this area until later in the game, after you have completed Luma Pools. Speak with Tokk and he asks you to find an artifact. First, you must solve the flower music puzzle. Bash the flowers in this order: Left, Middle, Right, Right, Left, Middle, Left
Then, enter Midnight Burrows. You will find the quest item here:
It’s behind a Keystone door so you need to grab all of those in the nearby area first. You get a Giant Spirit Light Container.
Kwolok’s Hollow Side Quests
After you meet the frog that rules the marsh and he sends you to fix the mill, you will find this Side Quest on your way back.
Head to this location and give the map to Tokk. He will give you a Wanderers Pouch.
You need to deliver the Wanderers Pouch to someone in The Wellspring. Then the Moki here will give you a pouch of herbs.
You need to take the pouch of herbs to this location and give it to Veral, you get a Spicy Soup in return.
Deliver the Soup to this Moki here. He will give you a comfy hat
Take the Comfy hat to this Moki in the Glade and she will give you a Lantern.
You take the Lantern to a Moki in Mouldwoods Depths. It’s a good idea to get the Flash ability first. He gives you some Mouldwood Silk, or string.
Travel to Luma Pools and speak with the Moki near the fishing Rod. He wants the string. Once you give him the string, he will give you a Spyglass.
You need to take the Spyglass to Motay in Wellspring Glades, he’s the NPC that gives you all your stats and gameplay information. He sits behind a bush at this location. When you give him the Spyglass he will give you a Canteen.
You take the canteen to the Morlek Miner that asks for some water, at this location. He will then give you a Stone Tablet.
You then take the Stone Tablet to Lupo in Wellspring Glade. He will give you a rumor. Follow the rumor, place the Mapstone in the tablet when you get there and all secrets on your map will be revealed.
Wellspring Glades Side Quests
You must pay the builder Gorlek Ore to remove all the bushes in The Wellspring Glade and then drop down to speak with the Moki here. You need to pay the leader of the Glades to clear the entrance to the cave, you will also need the Flash ability to explore down there. You’ll find the Acorn in the lower right corner of the caves, near the waters edge, where some glowing mushrooms are.
Clear The Wellspring first so that the water is safe to swim in, then pay the builder Gorlek Ore to remove all the vines in the area. Finally, swim down into the caves and visit this house. I had Silent Woods at 99% when I completed it, however, it is also tied to the Hand to Hand quest, once you get the stone tablet after you hand the water to the miner.
Speak with Tuley at the Glade. I think I had completed all other Glade projects before he arrived. You also need to complete The Tree Keeper. He will then task you with finding mysterious seeds to plant around the Glade. It opens up more areas of the Glade and eventually improves one of your abilities.
The Wellspring Side Quests
This is located within The Wellspring, in the main chamber. Tokk wants you to find a compass.
Head into the door Tokk points out to you. Once inside there’s a puzzle with a large spinning room. Right at the end, when you clear the last piece of decay obstructing the cogs, the needle is right nearby.
You get a Gorlek Ore.
Silent Woods Side Quests
Head to this location and speak with Kii. He will give you a Lifeless Branch and ask you to find a Healer of Nature. I’m not sure when he was available, I found Tuley at the end of the game, after I had completed upgrading the entire Glade. He gives you a branch to return to the tree keeper. You can find him here
He gives you a tree seed.
Windswept Wastes Side Quests
You can find the Eeri Game at the location above. I may have missed it at first but when I returned it was there. I did use the burrow skill on the nearby spade, which could have made it appear so if it’s not there, unlock the ability to dig through sand first.
Take the gem to Twillen and Wellspring Glades and he will give you the Secret Spirit Shard.
Luma Pools Side Quests
Speak with the Miko at this location in Luma Pools. The Moki asks you to find Kwolok. Follow the story and complete Luma Pools then return to the Moki, he will give you an amulet. Return to the altar new where Kwolok rested.
Place the amulet on here.
