Few pursuits in DREDGE are as challenging as Flames of the Deep. You need to avoid enemies, navigate a maze of ruins, and catch specific fish to get all Fathomless Flames. However, with some tips and tricks, you’ll have this one done in no time!

DREDGE: How to Get All Fathomless Flames Video Guide
What Are Fathomless Flames?
Fathomless Flames are the quest item you need to complete the “Flame of the Deep” pursuit. This pursuit is started by talking to the Fanatic at the Ancient Temple in Devil’s Spine. On the map, the Ancient Temple is located at coordinates 13O. Among other rewards, you get the Encrusted Talisman by doing this pursuit.
The Encrusted Talisman is a 2×2 piece of equipment that increases your fishing speed by a whopping 330%. As such, if you want to reel in fish as quickly as possible, this is a great bit of equipment to get.
Where to Find the First Fathomless Flame (01:00 in the Video Guide)
The first of the three Fathomless Flames can be found by completing the first Shrine of the Deep. Shrine of the Deep #1 is located at the southeast corner of coordinates 13P. This is slightly north of Charred Pontoon.
When you interact with this Shrine of the Deep, you’ll see the silhouette of two crustaceans. You need one Squat Lobster and 1 Spider Crab—both of which you can catch in pots just south of Charred Pontoon. After giving these crustaceans to the first shrine, you’ll get the first Fathomless Flame, two items you can sell to the Trader in Little Marrow, one piece of wood, and one Research Part.
Where to Find the Second Fathomless Flame (02:30 in the Video Guide)
You get the second Fathomless Flame from the second Shrine of the Deep. This shrine is located at the southeast coordinates 14P, which is on the northeast side of Devil’s Spine’s largest island.
To complete Shrine of the Deep #2, you need to give it one Pale Skate and one Ghost Shark. These fish can be found in the area, but you need a Volcanic fishing rod and an Abyssal fishing rod to catch them. After giving this shrine a Pale Skate and a Ghost Shark, you’ll get the second Fathomless Flame, two Refined Metals, and one Research Part.
Where to Find the Third Fathomless Flame (05:20 in the Video Guide)
The third and final Fathomless Flame is found at the third Shrine of the Deep, which is located at the northeast corner of coordinates 14O. This is on the south side of Devil’s Spine’s third-largest island.
You need to give the third Shrine of the Deep any two aberrations. The easiest way to find aberration spawns is to equip the Sign of the Deep, which is a piece of equipment you can only get from buying the Blackstone Key DLC. Keep an eye out for green particles above fishing spots, as this means you’re guaranteed to catch an aberration there.
Alternatively, you can simply do a lot of fishing. Eventually, you’ll catch aberrations if you fish enough. Once you’ve obtained two aberrations, give them to the third Shrine of the Deep and you’ll get your rewards. These rewards consist of the third and last Fathomless Flame as well as the Encrusted Talisman.
How to Get the Encrusted Talisman (06:50 in the Video Guide)
Doing the Flames of the Deep pursuit is required to get the Antique Pocket Watch relic. This relic is needed to complete the main pursuit in DREDGE.
However, if all you’re after is the Encrusted Talisman for now, seek out Shrine of the Deep #3 (located at the northeast corner of coordinates 14O) before doing anything else. Since all you need is any two aberrations, you can give this shrine what it wants relatively quickly. You don’t even need to start the Flames of the Deep pursuit to interact with this shrine.
