Passage of the “Dead Night” request
How to start the quest
First of all, go through the story mission called “Beasts of Prophecy”. When you visit Vanaheim again, you will be given a side quest “The Smell of Survival”, which will lead you to a new area – the Crater. Then move to its northwestern part and interact with the Sky Altar to change day to night.
Now move to the south of the Plains to find a passage to the Jungle, as shown in the two screenshots below. Head to the southwestern part of the location until you reach the dam, where you will receive the “Return of the River” request. Pass it to return water to the river.
Then, at night (otherwise you will not be able to track down the monster later), go to the left bank of the Plains in its western part. There, look for blue footprints on the rock (the exact location is shown in the screenshots below) and inspect them. After that, you will immediately be given the necessary task.
How to track down drek
Everything is quite simple here – you just need to follow the blue footprints on the ground. To do this, stand facing the rock on which you found the first spots, and then go left and turn right. Run along the cliff to the right and then down the ledge.
Keep following the blue footprints and approach the stone ahead – interact with it. You will find the lair of the lizard, but it will not be possible to get into it from here, so turn around and run to the nearest pier. Get on the boat and sail west. Dock near the shore with the blue spot.
Get out on land and jump down from the ledge. You will find yourself in the arena with the boss.
How to defeat Dreks
This enemy deals poison damage, not lightning, but, fortunately, you will only have to fight with one enemy, and not with two at once, so the fight will not be very difficult. The boss has slightly more hit points than regular dreks, but otherwise it's no different.
Mostly this enemy will try to bite you and lash you with his tail – all of these attacks can be blocked or dodged. However, poisonous strikes must be avoided, otherwise you can catch poisoning. We advise you to immediately use all your runic attacks, abilities and skills of the companion in order to inflict maximum damage on the lizard. Then simply finish him off.
By defeating the monster, you will complete the request. As a reward, you will be given 1500 experience points for Kratos, 375 experience points for Atreus and four dragon teeth.
