Night Predator request walkthrough
How to start the quest
You can start the quest after completing it story mission “Beasts of Prophecy”. On your second visit to Vanaheim, you will be given a secondary quest “The Smell of Survival” – complete it to enter a new region called the Crater. In the Plains, you will need to get to the right bank.
If you are visiting this area for the first time, then go to the south of the Plains and look for the entrance to the Jungle there. Then go to the southwestern part of this location and solve the issue with the dam during the side mission “Return of the River” – as a result, the canyon will fill with water, and you will be able to cross to the opposite coast.
Before that, switch to the night time by interacting with the Sky Altar (shown in the screenshots above). Then find the purple flame in the location below and drive it away with the Blades of Chaos by pressing the R2 button. After that, the request you need starts.
Where to find the wisps
There are three lights in total. You already grabbed one of them, so there are two more left. However, any phantom will do to start the quest, so in the pictures below we will show the exact location of all the purple spheres.
How to defeat Flame Phantom
Having dealt with the lights, go to the stone round slab located in the center of the right bank. When you get close to it, a boss named Flame Phantom will appear – fight him.
This opponent is not much different from his fellow Frost Phantom, with whom you fought in the story. Normal attacks will not kill him – you will need to fill his stun bar, and then destroy the purple totems. There are five such pillars in total, and they are located next to the arena.
To fill the scale, you need to hit the purple rune on the head of the enemy. Then the sign will start flashing – at this moment, throw an ax or a spear at it to stun the enemy. Next, run to the nearest pillar, destroy the blue vines with the blades of chaos (if any) and destroy the monument itself, thereby removing one bar of health from the boss. Repeat this process 4 more times.
After destroying all 5 pillars, run up to Flame Phantom and press R3 to finish it off. This will complete the quest. As a reward, you will receive 3000 experience points for Kratos, 750 experience points for Atreus, the Hunter's Brand and Stormfire (spear upgrade).
