As you progress through Ori and the Will of the Wisps you will encounter a number of NPCs that you can speak to. Some of these NPCs say little to nothing while others have requests to ask of you. One NPC you will encounter is a Moki in the room above where you fought the Horned Beetle boss. This Moki gives you a map to deliver to someone with feathers. Receiving this map starts the Hand to Hand side quest. Continue reading below for our Hand to Hand guide.

Note: This is a rather long trading quest line that takes roughly the entire game to complete. Keep that in mind.
