Given by the Grey Mourner to be delivered to the grave of the Traitor's Child in Queen's Gardens. Taking any damage or attempting to ride the Stagways will destroy the flower. Successfully delivering the flower rewards a Mask Shard.
Isma's Tear is needed to access the Queen's Gardens. Before accepting the flower, it is recommended to go to the Queen's Gardens and unlock the shortcut to the local Stag Station. This is because the path to the grave of the Traitor's Child is located in the same room as the entrance of said station. If the shortcut is unlocked, the player will have to face only one Mantis Petra in the Gardens on the way to the grave. If not, it's a very long way fraught with difficult platforming and powerful enemies, which are almost guaranteed to destroy the flower.
It is a good idea to do this quest before the Forgotten Crossroads becomes Infected, as the Furious Vengeflies are extremely fast and aggressive. This will limit the offensive options, since it is not possible to get the Monarch Wings without killing the Broken Vessel and thus triggering the infection. However, on the optimal route, the only threatening enemies faced will be one single Mantis Petra and a few Spiny Husks. It is recommended to have at least the Great Slash, a Coiled Nail and Fragile Strength for dealing with those.
One good route is to leave the Resting Grounds through the Blue Lake and into the Forgotten Crossroads. Once there, head towards the room to the bottom left of the map, the one with the acid pool. Dive into the acid and take the shortcut to Fog Canyon, then head into the Queen's Gardens. Ooma and Uoma are very passive, making the trek fairly easy to do without being damaged as long as there is no collision with anything on the way down through the vertical shaft. In the Queen's Gardens, take the shortcut towards the Stag Station. There are three spiky sections in the corridor that leads to the grave.
For those who struggle with combat, the easiest but most time-consuming method is to pick a route from the grave to the Grey Mourner and kill everything along the way without using a bench to save or heal. Some enemies like Furious Vengeflies and Mantis Petra do not respawn until the player sits on a bench. When carrying the flower to the grave, the player will only need to worry about environmental hazards and weaker enemies such as Aspid Hunters, Mossflies, and Uoma as long as a bench has not been used.
A Nailsmith's Obsession
When his job is done; when the perfect blade is forged; what meaning remains for the Nailsmith?
He'll provide the first nail refinement for Geo only, after which he will require Pale Ore and Geo to upgrade further (see Nail for prices).
After having him forge the Pure Nail, the Nailsmith will step outside and asks the player to cut him down. Obliging him sends him plummeting down to the waters below, though his corpse is never found.
This will award the 'Purity' achievement. If the player leaves him, not granting his request however, he can be found with Nailmaster Sheo and will award the 'Happy Couple' achievement after talking to him.
He will then remain in Sheo's hut for the rest of the game, engaging in modelling for Sheo and making wooden figurines together.
