Elex: How to Find Clues – Walkthrough

This is a side quest where you have to locate a group of Alb-separatists. There are two possible endings – either you kill them or help them survive.

How to start the quest: Speak to Hakon in Goliet.

Hakon is located in the eastern part of the village. You can discuss his hatred towards the Alb with him. He will ask you to find and eliminate the separatists (if you have 2 Combat points, you can negotiate a better price). The Albs are situated far west from the village, and there are three possible hideouts marked on your map (activate the quest to view them). Go to the northernmost location, which is the collapsed tunnel.

You can fulfill Hakon’s request and kill the separatists. Start by eliminating the regular troops, and then take out Nezol, their leader (700XP). Afterward, inform Hakon of your success, and you will receive 400XP, 125 Elexit, and a Sword (one-handed weapon).

Think before you act

If you don’t want to kill the Alb, speak to Nezol and promise him that you will help establish a friendly relationship between them and the Berserkers. Nezol might also offer you the quest Clearing the Forest, which requires you to eliminate the Albs who are hunting them.

Return to Hakon and discuss the separatists. Your dialogue choice is crucial:

  1. Reveal the separatists’ location to Hakon (400XP, 250 Elexit). Despite his assurances, the separatists will be dead the next time you visit. When you ask Hakon about it, you can choose to attack him, remain neutral, or praise him (200XP).
  2. Provide him with a false location (400XP, 250 Elexit). This is the best option that allows you to save the separatists and maintain a friendly relationship with Hakon. However, Hakon will eventually learn of your deception. If you encounter him later in the game, he will attack you after a brief discussion, forcing you to kill him (100XP).
  3. Refuse to give him any information (400XP). This will harm your relationship with him, and you won’t receive any Elexit, but the separatists will survive.
