Unlocking the quest - reaching the Ruins

Finding Family Crest

Family Crest is obtained through a Dredge action. Go to the area shown in the picture above. You'll need to circle the island with the dock. Some pathways are blocked by Debris, but for now you cannot do nothing about them.
Once you arrive at the location, do a Dredge, complete the mini-game and you will fish out Family Crest after a moment. Information about the mini-game can be found on the How to obtain Dredge? page.
Once you have the heirloom, return to Hermit in Ruins. Report your success in the search.
Remember to not take any detours and sail straight for Ruins when bringing back the Crest, as there is a monster prowling in Gale Cliffs that can attack unexpectedly and damage your ship seriously. More on this creature can be found on How to avoid the Gale Cliffs monster? page of the guide.
Visiting Ingfell and talking to Retired Whealer
Hermit will ask you to deliver the heirloom to his brother who lives in Ingfell. The place is north-west of the Ruins.
Talk to the Retired Whaler in Ingfell and give him the memento. The man will tell his story and give you another task.
Blowing up Debris
You need to set the fuse on fire and destroy the obstacle indicated by the questgiver to open the sea route again. Sail to the doomed place and interact with Debris. The barrier is marked with yellow flags.
Answer Yes to blow up the obstacle . You can now return to Retired Whaler and confirm that the task has been completed.
Transporting Hermit to Ingfell
Retired Whaler will ask you to deliver a message back to Hermit. Simply ride back to Ruins and talk to the Hermit. Take him to the ship by placing his silhouette in the cargo hold and then transport him to Ingfell. Travel safely, as if you damage the ship, Hermit may go overboard.
After the last conversation and finishing the Pursuit, you will gain access to Whaling Yards, where you can purchase Packed Explosives. This item will now also be available at the merchant in any Pontoon location.
