Enshrouded Ancients and the Flame Lore

Written by Sarah-Maree

The following is what I have for Ancients and the Flame Lore in Enshrouded. NOTE: MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS - I won’t share Lore content, but the titles may give things away, and the photos may reveal things. For an overview of what the heck I’m talking about, click here! Since I found most of these, they won’t glow red in the pictures, but they should glow red, like a fire, for you if you haven’t discovered them yet. If not, I’m sure the game developers would appreciate any feedback or hearing of any glitches, bugs, or malfunctions as this is an Early Access game - in that it isn’t fully finished and they are still working out some things. If you have any questions or tips for me, let me know in the comments! I’ll try to update often and with images to help guide you on your journey.

Ancients and the Flame

Pillars of Creation Research Site

1/2 New Theories!

Travel to the Inner Sanctum for this and the next bit of Lore. The scroll is on the ground level in the tent straight ahead. On the map, it may be difficult to read, but the text says, “STRANGE STRUCTURE” and “INNER SANCTUM” is above that but with the sanctum part cut off.

2/2 I Completely Fumbled It!

Traveling up through the Inner Sanctum brings you to an obelisk and further up leads you to the Research Camp. Inside the tent (straight ahead in the screenshot) is the Lore, resting on a desk.

Hidden Flame Shrine

1/2 Can It Be True?

A simple glide west of the Ancient Spire - Kindlewastes Fast Travel is Sapphire Strand. Head there for this Lore. The pages will be on a table on a rooftop (big yellow building on the right). It’s easier to see at night with the red glow.

2/2 As We All Forgot

The location for this one is a bit difficult to reach. I glided in from the Ancient Spire - Kindlewastes Fast Travel. It’s at the southern tip of the map and is a peninsula above the red Shroud that’s taken over the sea. Needless to say, don’t fall off or you die. You can land on the higher land above this and hop down (glide a bit for a gentler fall) from there. The rest is pretty straightforward. The Lore for this one is a plaque.

Protected By The Flame

1/1 The Flame Soul

During your questing, at some point, the Alchemist Balthazar shares this Lore with you.

Obelisk Research

1/3 Obelisk Writing

Near an obelisk, inside a tent, and on a table is a book to read. North, northeast of Ancient Vault – Hunter at an Ancient Obelisk.

2/3 Progress! Also – Headaches!

This one is off in the wilds. It’s a little tricky to get to by glider, but looking for a road helps a ton! Once you get to the Obelisk, the book is on a table in the tent closest to the monument.

3/3 Confusion Above All

Super easily, if you’ve made it to the Ancient Spire - Nomad Highlands Fast Travel spot. If not… well, you’ll get there! Ok, so from the tower, glide down a wee bit to the Ancient Obelisk. There’s a small camp there with two tents. The right tent has the Lore resting on a table.

One Last Journey

1/3 My Final Journey

Located outside of the Shroud in Woodgard. This is located in the bedroom on the second floor of a house. It’s straight ahead from the garden. There are two doors. The scroll is on a nightstand behind the left one.

2/3 Tired

At an Ancient Obelisk to the west of the Ancient Spire – Springlands Fast Travel, there is a body and a note. The note gives you “Tired” while the body's loot gives you "Wandering".

3/3 Wandering

At an Ancient Obelisk to the west of the Ancient Spire – Springlands Fast Travel, there is a body and a note. The body gives you Wanderer’s Boots and “Wandering”.

Cinder Vault

1/3 Another Failure

Just outside the Ancient Vault – Blacksmith, there is a small tower. On the ground level, there is a table with a note on it.

2/3 Eureka!

The same tower as Another Failure, outside the Ancient Vault – Blacksmith, there is a ladder that leads to a small room with the book on a crate.

3/3 Venture Forth

In the Ancient Vault – Blacksmith, there is a letter on a table inside the one room vault.

Captain’s Journal

1/4 Captain’s Journal, Day One

From the Cinder Vault at the start of the game, follow the path through the cave. When the road splits for the first time (one going forward to where your first base should be and the other going left into the ruins of Longkeep), head left. In the first tent on the left, there’s a note to read.

2/4 Captain’s Journal, Day Six

Just outside of Longkeep, the path splits to the right from Braelyn Bridge. The tent on the left has a note on a table.

3/4 Captain’s Journal, Day Twenty

Just outside of Longkeep, the path splits to the right from Braelyn Bridge. Ignore the first set of tents and head down the hill. There is a short path on the left with another tent and a note on a table next to a glowing torch.

4/4 Captain’s Demise

Following the path into the Shroud from Longkeep (past the first two tents with notes), there is a sword on the ground and an enemy. Defeat the enemy and loot its body for a ring to complete the lore.

About the Author

I may not be the nerdiest nerd you’ve ever met, but I still like to think of myself as a lover of science, video games, and of course, books.
