Obtaining the quest

This quest can be obtained in one of two ways. If Aloy speaks to Laulai, she will inform Aloy of a sudden rush of water that has flooded the basin at Deep Din and obstructed her family's legacy. Aloy will offer to investigate. Laulai can be found in Song's Edge, but if Aloy does not speak to her there she will turn up in Longnotch later.

Alternatively, Aloy can bypass Laulai and visit Deep Din or Greycatch on her own. The quest will automatically start when Aloy gets close to one of the locations.
