Heart of Fire has been one of the tall tales of the games. Like other tall tales, this tall tale has various ways to find and complete the mission. Hence in this article, the player will find all possible ways to do the mission with ease. So stick to the article to find the easiest way to do the Heart of Fire tall tale.

Heart of Fire Tall Tale Guide

In this tall tale, the player needs to explore the lava biome of the sea of thieves. He needs to go to the lava cave and various other pathways with lava and fiery traps. In the end, the player needs to carry a chest to the Pendragon to complete the quest.

Items to collect in the mission

In the mission, there have been mainly three items that the player needs to collect. After starting the tall tale, first, he needs to collect the mysterious key and the Stitcher’s notes. Then the player needs to find the Stitcher’s chest of a rogue as the final item. Bring this chest to Pendragon to complete the quest.

Start of the Heart of Fire

To start the Heart of Fire tall tale, head to the Morrow’s Peak outpost. After that, head top of the island and find the tavern named The Charred Parrot. Go inside that tavern. There will be a lady on the counter and to the right of her, there will be a book named Heart of Fire. Vote for that book to start the tall tale.

Once the player votes for the book, the lady named Tallulah will start talking. Like other tall tales, she will brief the player about the tall tale. So listen to her to get to know about the brief about the tall tale.

Head to the liar’s Backbone

After starting the tall tale, the player needs to head to the liar’s backbone island. After reaching there, head towards the top of the island. Then go right and the player will find a closed cave. Open the cave with the help of the liver on the left side. As the player pulls the lever, the cave will open.

After entering the cave, take left and then keep moving straight. In the end, the player will end up on the backside of the cave. There will be three stones that the player needs to turn in the correct pattern to unlock the secret vault.

The player needs to enter from left to right, king, flame heart and the third one will vary for different players. So try all the options and select which suits the respective player best. After that. Pull the lever to open the secret vault.

The vault will give the player two out of three things that the player needs to collect in the game. These will be mysterious keys and Stitcher’s Notes. Collect both of them and move further in the mission.

The Devil’s Thirst

Now in the next step, the player needs to head to the Devil’s Thirst Island. It will be on the south part of the map. The exact location of the island on the map will be W21. So head to the island and go to the north part of the map. There, the whole mission will take place.

After going to the north of the island, search for the trail of the lava. It will be towards the north of the island. Once the player found it, jump into the water near that trail. The trail of lava will also be in the water.

As the player jumps in the water, he will notice a giant cave-like structure with a pedestal in front of it. Place the key on the pedestal to open the door. As the player places the key, the flames will appear from the gate of the cave and it will lift to open the cave.

Enter into the cave

After entering the cave, the player now needs to pathway under the water. It will be a long stay underwater. So don’t forget to come to the surface and refill lungs with fresh air, whenever the player gets a chance to do so.

Hence, always keep looking for small air pockets. Come to the surface, and then dive in again. After following the long pathway, the player will reach the end of the cave. Here the player needs to climb over the rocks, below which, molten lava will be floating.

Therefore avoid falling in the lava and jump over the rocks to reach the three possible entries. Now the player can take any of the three pathways. This is so because each of them will have the same ending and will not affect the course of the game.

The only difference between all these doors and pathways is the type of trap. To open each gate, the player needs to light up the skull above the respective gate. Every gate will have a skull near it. Find it, and use a fireball from the near barrel near the gates to fire the skulls. As the player fires the skull, the respective gate will open.

1. Left-most pathway

If the player selects the left-most pathway, he has chosen the easiest one. Hence it is the recommended pathway to do this mission.  This pathway mostly contains lava and flame traps. These traps cannot kill the player at once. So if the player unluckily got hit by the flame or lava, he will take a bit of the damage and then can continue his journey.

Now the player needs to keep looking for different levers across his way to the finals cave. Use the levers to summon the traps and to make new paths in the lava. Hence after passing through a few traps, the player will end up in a giant cave.

Get the Stitcher’s chest of rage

This cave will have Captain Flameheart’s ghost ship. At a distance rock, the player will see Stitcher doing some sort of ritual. Find the way to the Stitcher and as the payer goes near him, he will run away leaving the chest of rage behind. Pick the chest and come out of the cave.

The player needs to find the way out. During this, he can encounter different waves of skeletons. Use traps to fight the skeletons with ease. Keep following the pathway and the player will exit the cave.

Hand over the chest to pendragon

Use the chest or rage to kill the skeletons, by infuriating it by attacking the chest with the sword and then let it throw flames all around it, killing the skeletons. Then take the chest swim back to shore. At the shore, the player will find a pendragon. Go to him and hand him over the chest to complete the mission.

2. Middle pathway

The middle pathway will be somewhat difficult as compared to the right one. But the basic things of all pathways are the same and that is to follow the trails and avoid getting hit by traps.

In this pathway, all traps are not only the lava or flame ones. Here, the player will also find some swinging traps. Follow the pattern and time the path of the swinging traps to avoid them. The player can use them to kill the skeletons as well.

The remaining things are the same, just keep following the trail until the player reaches the giant cave with the ghost ship and Stitcher. Get the chest from Stitcher and swim out of the cave in a similar pattern.

3. Right-most pathway

The right-most pathway is the most difficult pathway of all. This is so because it contains the rolling wheel trap. This trap is the most difficult and the player will find it very difficult to pass through it.

After opening the cave by burning the respective skull from the fore ball, the player needs to head to the cave and follow the trail and the path. After a while, the player will reach the spinning wheel trap.

To pass this trap, first, stop the first wheel by using a lever near them. Then go on right, and climb up the wooden plant. Then jump on the torch and then jump on the small wooden stand. After that, the layer needs to sword launch himself. He needs to time this launch perfectly to avoid hitting the trap.

At first, the player might find it difficult, but believe me, it is the easiest way to pass through this trap. Just practice and the player can pass through this trap by using sword launch with each.

After that, all the missions are the same, find the chest rage and exit the cave and hand it over the pendragon to complete the mission.

It does matter which path the player takes, it will always end up in a single direction. So, it is suggested to take the left path. This is so because it is the easiest path with very few and avoidable traps. If the player falls in the traps, he will get a little damage as compared to the traps of other pathways.


In a nutshell, to treat the quest, the player needs to head to the Morrow’s Peak outpost and then vote for the book in the Tavern. Then head to the liar’s backbone island to get the Stitcher’s notes and the mysterious key. Then head to the north of the Devil’s Cave Island and look for the pedestal to open the cave.

Swim inside the cave to find three gateways. Take any gateway you like. All of them will lead to the same ending. The only thing that differs will be the type of traps in every pathway. The left one is the easiest. Then reach the large cave and get the Stitcher’s chest of rage. Take it and swim out on the surface.

Find Pendragon near the shore, and hand him over the chest to complete the quest.
