The spear, made by Thok's deceased wife and Arana's mother, Edena, became lodged in a Scrapper after Thok failed to defeat it. Given the sentimental value of the spear and despite her father's protests, Arana sets out to retrieve the spear.
While searching for his daughter, Thok's leg gives out, rendering him unable to continue. After she stumbles upon him, he asks Aloy for her assistance.
Aloy finds Arana stranded on a platform with four Watchers prowling below. After taking out the Watchers, Arana jumps down to thank Aloy. Agreeing to get the spear back herself, she sends Arana back to her father. Using her Focus, Aloy follows Arana's steps to just outside of Mother's Cradle. From there Aloy picks up the trail of the Scrapper, following it across a river to a herd of other Scrappers and Watchers near the Southern Embrace Gate.
Aloy recovers Arana's spear from the marked Scrapper and comments on the strong crafting ability of its maker. She returns to Arana and Thok to receive their gratitude. As a reward, Thok upgrades Aloy's spear.
