Retrieve the King’s Horn is a Side Mission in Shadow of the Tomb Raider and the first one of Hearts and Minds mission line. This walkthrough shows how to complete this Quest.
Quest Giver: Ushu
Requirement: Talk to a lady after the runaway sequence in Patiti
Reward: Retrieve the Savior’s Amulet Quest
Quest Location – Retrieve the King’s Horn
After obtaining the Silver Serpent Artifact in the main story you will have to finish a runaway sequence. Once done you will find yourself again in the streets of Patiti. Talk to the old lady close to where you are and she will tell you about some argument she heard. This will mark the location of this side mission on your map.
This will lead you to the cave in which Jonah is being held and your mission giver will be the guard watching for him, Ushu.
Objectives – Talk to Kabil / Head to the Market
Ushu will tell you about three items being needed for the coronation of Urumatu’s son in the future. Two of those are already being sent on by his men, there is however a problem with the King’s Horn, since Kabil, according to Ushu, is a difficult person to talk to. Lara makes her way to Kabil’s home to find out Kabil’s wife is ill, due to poisoning of their fields by the cult.
Kabil also tells you about his son Cualli, which was sent to the market for obtaining herbs, in order to heal his wife. Lara visits the market only to find out, Cualli is being held captured by the guards for stealing the herbs.
Objectives – Locate Cualli / Talk to Yamil
You will find Cualli being held in a cell and a guard watching for him. The guard will tell you his opinion about children in Patiti and will mention Yamil as the worst of them. Lara decides to talk to Yamil.
Objectives – Retrieve the knife / Return the knife to Yamil / Free Cualli
Yamil will tell you about the guard throwing his father’s knife up a cliff and that he can’t reach it. Lara of course helps Yamil and gets him his knife by simply climbing the small ledge next to Yamil. In exchange, Yamil distracts the guard and Lara can free Cualli from his imprisonment.
Objectives – Return to Kabil / Return to Unuratu’s hideout with the King’s Horn
After returning to Kabil you will be granted the King’s Horn. Return to Uchu in order to finish the quest. There is a problem, though. You are the only one who has returned their item so far. Lara offers to search for the others, starting with a young man who was supposed to retrieve the Savior’s Amulet. The quest for finding the King’s Horn is over but at the same time the quest for retrieving the second item starts.
This concludes the “Retrieve the King’s Horn” Side Mission in SOTTR.
