Completion Talk to Cavas about the memory.

Shattered Past was a quest in Act 1 exclusive to the Synthesis league.


Cavas has found a memory and needs your help exploring and stabilising it.

Cavas': I don’t know who I am, but I do know that this… thing here is important. That there are answers inside.

You look strong… Could you spare a moment to help an old man? Perhaps we can solve this mystery together.

Cavas needs you to explore the memory and activate the Memory Stabilisers before it decays.

Talk to Cavas about the memory.

Cavas: I… I think this was a memory of mine. It has been corrupted, but I indeed recall fragments… A sunny day at the beach when I was but a boy. I remember the warm sand between my toes. I chose a seashell to bring home… A happy day.

But… I do not remember taking the shell home. I do not remember home at all. So much is yet missing… Wait! I remember seeing another of these memories. Where was it? Oh dear. I don’t remember…

I’ll take this with me. I might remember if I take it with me. I hope we run into each other again soon.

Find more memories for Cavas and stabilise them to help him restore his memory.

Cavas: All these memories we’ve collected… When I gaze upon them, I feel as though I’m close to remembering something important. Like there are memories trapped in my mind but I just can’t quite reach them.

Oh. Oh dear. Oh DEAR! I’ve remembered something! Exile, it is time we go to the Nexus.
