Once you receive this quest you will need to start by finding the Mad Monk. The Mad Monk is located to the northeast of Ravensthorpe. Their is a quest marker there. Make your way to this quest marker. Once there approach the smoking pot and interact with it. When you do this a cutscene triggers with the Mad Monk.

After the cutscene concludes you need to complete a dream sequence. This sequence tasks you with finding the source of power. To do this follow the torches up to the stones on the hill above. Here solve the rune puzzle by lining up the symbols (like you would in the World Quests). Once you do this you will trigger a boss fight with Shadow Eivor. Defeat Shadow Eivor to return to Ravensthorpe.

This ends this quest. You will unlock the next festival side quest called An Honorable Death. You will need to complete this side quest to complete the Hunting For Honor quest.
