To start “A Friend in the Dark” players must first solve the puzzle in the Murmuring Hollow Relic Ruins. The Code for the Murmuring Hollow Relic Ruins is 1315.

Find a way to free the Stranger

After initiating the quest, the first objective is to locate a means of freeing the Stranger. Follow the tunnel downwards for a brief distance to proceed.

Go to the Locked Door

You’ll come across a locked door at the end of the tunnel. The combination required to unlock this initial door is three digits, with the code being ‘117‘.

Head inside and go downstairs to reach a bigger area. On the right-hand side, you can spot a railcar.

Find the Door Code

Push it forward to locate a crate, then drag the crate outside to place it on the ramp and use it for climbing to the second floor.

After climbing, proceed to the right side to find a vent in a room. Open the vent and crawl through it. After exiting the vent on the opposite side, you must climb up to this ledge and cross to the other side.

This is the path you need to follow.

After reaching the other side, you will find the code – 1247.

Find the Key Module

Next, pull the cover on the blue create near the ledge to reveal a yellow wheel to control the elevator.

Wait until Gildun enters the elevator before rotating the wheel to take the lift to the second floor. Simply go to Gildun once he’s on the second floor.

Move the railcar out of the path with Gildun’s assistance.

Return to the ground and drag the crate into the lift. You’ll have to wait till Gildun approaches the wheel and raises the lift.

Push the box to the back of the train and jump on top of it to reach the second floor,

Head to the room containing the Firegleam and ignite it so you can enter the room on the other side.

 Grab the Ron’s Spare Key Module

Defeat all the enemies (machine) and then head to unlock the door. Put the Key Module and the code – 1247.

Head inside the room, open the vent, and crawl through it.

On the other side, you will find Olvar’s corpse. Finally, go back to the previous room and talk to Gildun to end the side quest.
