Meet the Brackenleaf
I've discovered an order of hunters called Brackenleaf's Briars. They protect a tree they say was planted by Y'ffre at the creation of the world.

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Talk to Glaras about becoming a Brackenleaf Briar.
  2. Ignite the braziers.
  3. Perform the ritual.
  4. Choose your spirit animal, hunt your prey and confront your predator.
  5. Take a piece of Brackenleaf's heart.
  6. Pray at your spirit animal's shrine.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Vision at the Shrine of the Snake

Eringor appears before you enter Brackenleaf. If you want to become a Brackenleaf Briar, you must talk to Glaras, the leader of the Briars.

The Snake, The Tiger and The WolfEdit

Vision at the Shrine of the Tiger
Vision at the Shrine of the Wolf

You need to light the brazier at each of the three animal's areas and watch a vision of its prey and predator.

The Snake kills the Wolf, the Wolf kills the Tiger and the Tiger kills the Snake. The Snake uses stealth, the Tiger uses strength and the Wolf relies on teamwork.

The Initiation RitualEdit

Brackenleaf's Heart

The next step is to catch and eat alive a Falinesti Peeper to see the true nature of the forest. The frog is northeast of Glaras' house, inside Sacred Leap Grotto. You must run up to it and interact with it before it hops away. Once caught, a prompt to "Use Falinesti Peeper" should appear. You can also use the frog directly from your Quest Items inventory. Either method allows you to start the vision journey.

After that you are approached by a spriggan spirit. She tells you that it is time to speak to Brackenleaf. He can be found to the west, outside of the Grotto. He asks you to pick a spirit animal based on the qualities that fit you best. Then, you will have to destroy the animal's prey. Once this is done, the spriggan spirit will appear and tell you to go to the animal's shrine at the edge of the forest. There, you confront your animal's predator.

Path Companion Animal Prey Predator
Way of the Snake Snake The Wolf The Tiger
Way of the Tiger Tiger The Snake The Wolf
Way of the Wolf Wolf The Tiger The Snake

Once you are done, you need to return to Brackenleaf, who says that you are the Outsider. You must defeat the masters and touch Brackenleaf's heart to become a Briar.

You will have to take a piece of Brackenleaf's heart and return to Glaras, who sends you to pray at your spirit animal's shrine.

Returning to Glaras completes your initiation into the Briars.


Choosing a spirit animal is permanent for your character and will provide you with the ability to get a one-hour buff in Grahtwood any time you pray at a Brackenleaf shrine.

  • The Falinesti Peeper won't exist in the cave before starting the quest.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
