The Heart of Fire has been discovered and is waiting for you and your crew to take it head on! This brand new Tall Tale is the next chapter in the epic Flameheart saga that is unfolding on the Sea of Thieves. You will be learning more about what he and his followers are up to while you journey through the treacherous chambers in Flameheart’s lair.
As with all previous Tall Tales, the Heart of Fire has five journals for you to find and read through. You can expect these journals, written by Stitcher Jim himself, to give more insight into the story told in Heart of Fire.
If you are looking for a step by step guide to the Heart of Fire that walks you through more than just the journal locations, head over here to our walkthrough.
If you are looking for just the journals, below are the locations for each with pictures to help you track them down.
We also have a video showing the locations of each journal for those of you pirates who enjoy watching their guides right here:
One of the journals is located on Liar’s Backbone while the other four can be found in the Heart of Fire below The Devil’s Thirst. Let’s get to journal hunting!
We Need A New Plan
The “We Need A New Plan” journal can be found in Stitcher Jim’s Hideout on Liar’s Backbone.
Once you have stepped foot on Lair’s Backbone, walk up the West hill and you will encounter a blocked cave entrance on the North side. Pull the lever next to the entrance and enter the hideout.
Once inside you will spot the journal on the left side of the heart shaped rock cutout in the middle of the hideout.
Disorder of Souls
The “Disorder of Souls” journal can be found in the catacombs below The Devil’s Thirst.
After passing through the secret entrance to Flameheart’s lair on the North side of The Devil’s Thirst, you will carry on through pools of water and rock pathways. You will eventually come to a giant room that splits into three different paths blocked by large doors.
You will find this journal on a rock pile to the right of the middle door, The path of the Forsaken Flame.
A Chest of Rage…
The Chest of Rage… journal can be found on the path of the Eternal King. This is the left path inside the catacombs of The Devil’s Thirst.
After the first fire spinning capstan trap you will come across a stepping stone path surrounded by lava. You will jump from stone to stone to progress through the path.
On the left side of the path next to the second to last stepping stone will be the journal. Hop on over to the rock platform beside it and read the journal.
Bye, Bye, Blackwyche
The Bye, Bye, Blackwyche journal can be found on the path of the Forsaken Flame. This is the middle path inside the catacombs of The Devil’s Thirst.
After the skeleton fight room will be a chamber with a skull pile in it to the left. On the skull pile you will find the journal.
The devil I know…
The devil I know… journal can be found in the path of the Burning Heart. This is the right path inside the catacombs of The Devil’s Thirst.
The journal is near the very end of the path inside the wall of spikes trap. To get past this trap you will need to run through when the spikes have receded and hide in one of the safe alcoves to the right before the spikes pop out again.
In the second safe alcove along the ride side of the wall will be the journal on the ground.
IF YOU FORGOT A JOURNAL
If you were so focused on traps and happen to forget to read the journal for one of the three paths don’t fret! You can always take one of the mermaid statues found in the paths back to your ship and re-enter the Heart of Fire to try again. There is a mermaid statue outside of the lair entrance underwater that will take you back into the catacombs.
After completing the Tall Tale three times by completing each path and reading each journal you will have unlocked every commendation for the Heart of Fire! Congrats on traversing the trap laced paths and delivering Stitcher’s Chest of Rage to Pendragon!
