Blood Under The Sun is a Parallel Quest in Outward.


This quest has a timer of 40 days. Failing to complete the quest in this time will result in an immediate failure ("any evidence to help solve the murder will be long gone"). Additionally, the quest will be failed if you have not completed it by the time your third faction quest begins (and you have waited the 3 days).

  • Note: for Heroic Kingdom members, you must have started finding the clues before you wait the 3 days for Mouths to Feed
